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.

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.
