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.
