Psions | New Class for Fifth Edition

More than a character of any other class, the psionicist is self-contained. Unlike the fighter and rogue, the psion needs no weapons or tools to practice his or her art. Unlike the cleric, he or she needs no deity. Unlike the wizard, the psion relies on no outside energies. The power of the psion comes from within, and he or … Continue reading Psions | New Class for Fifth Edition

Trader Class for Athas (Dark Sun) | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

As I've been moving my way through recreating Dark Sun for Fifth Edition based heavily off the 2nd edition version ('cause I'm a grumpy old man), one of my players and I have been talking about the actual setting for my own campaign. Dark Sun had a pretty cool supplement back in 2nd called Dune … Continue reading Trader Class for Athas (Dark Sun) | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

Classes of Athas (Dark Sun) | Player’s Guide for Fifth Edition

Continuing my series on Dark Sun, it's time to dig into the classes of Athas. Many of the Fifth Edition classes transition smoothly into Dark Sun with only a few minor tweaks. Others need total overhauled. And some are completely removed. In an effort to provide a complete ruleset, I've constructed the class options as … Continue reading Classes of Athas (Dark Sun) | Player’s Guide for Fifth Edition

Jaunter Prestige Class | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

The planes offer incredible opportunities for travel and excitement, but few have the skill and expertise to take advantage of them. The jaunter, however, is a consummate expert on travel who specializes in getting exactly where he or she wants to go—whether it’s across the multiverse or just across the battlefield. Becoming a Jaunter Jaunter is a prestige class, … Continue reading Jaunter Prestige Class | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

Demonwrecker Prestige Class | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

Spellcasters specializing in demon eradication can gain great fame and prestige—if they survive long enough. Although demons are highly resistant to spells, a demonwrecker’s magic is more effective at penetrating their defenses than magic from other sources. While the elite divine spellcasters known as demonwreckers specialize in fighting demonic opponents, they are almost as effective as their nonspecialized counterparts at combating foes … Continue reading Demonwrecker Prestige Class | New Player Option for Fifth Edition

Awakened Dog | New Race for Fifth Edition

This is one I've been stewing on for a while mostly because I'm not totally sure how I wanted to do it. Everyone would love to play a dog, right? But obviously, they come with some interesting challenges. The biggest challenge is that dogs can't hold things. Which renders nearly every class useless other than … Continue reading Awakened Dog | New Race for Fifth Edition

Epic Archer (Prototype) | New Class for Fifth Edition

This class comes as a request from one of my loyal patrons. The concept stems from the character Archer from Fate/stay night. I'll admit, this took a little research on my part (I wasn't familiar with the character), but I saw the class as sort of an "extreme" version of the Arcane Archer. The Epic … Continue reading Epic Archer (Prototype) | New Class for Fifth Edition

Gunslinger Class | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

It was inevitable. Sooner or later I'd have to create a gunslinger class for Fifth Edition. I suppose it's sort of like a coming-of-age for those of us who create original Fifth Edition content. This comes in as a request from one of my Patrons. And you know the rules: if it comes in as … Continue reading Gunslinger Class | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Tactician Class | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

I've probably been stewing on this one for a little too long, so I decided to give it a shot today. I more or less know how I want to get it done. This, of course, came in as a request from one of my patrons. Playtest Content The material here is presented for playtesting … Continue reading Tactician Class | New Player Option for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
