    Sean's Picks of the Week (0320-0324) - Adventures...

    It started out as an accident, as many of my Theme Weeks often do. I just noticed I was focused on adventure-related Picks about halfway through, so there you go! Of particular excitement was the discovery that DriveThruRPG is now carrying back-issues of the Paizo-run of both Dragon and Dungeon magazines; I believe I can claim to have broke that particular piece of news, as a matter...

  • A Preview of A TOUCH OF CLASS: 7 Classes For 5E


    Coming soon to Kickstarter is a 70-page full-colour softcover book detailing 7 full classes for 5th Edition. These seven classes originally appeared in EN5ider, the 5th Edition patreon. Over time, they have been revised and updated after plenty of feedback from the community, and now they're ready to be presented as a full-colour softcover book! Each is a full class, along with archetypes; plus the collection includes a selection of supporting feats, spells, items, backgrounds, and monsters to help make the most from them. Take a look at the contents and introduction to the book!

      Has there been any errata or changes made as a result of extended playtesting of these materials?

      I know on Twitter, the editor said a lot of the discussion points about balance changes had been included.

      I recall @Zardnaar mentioning about balance problems that he saw with the Noble (aka ENWarlord), so I would be curious as to his thoughts on these balance changes then.

      He was one of the (several) people who kindly offered the useful detailed feedback we used to update these.

      The C in your title font looks like a G. I read it as "A Tough of Glass".

      We tested it and in the right party its broken in half and in the wrong party its kind of meh.

      The design is not great.

      A major problem was one of its abilities which can at will let a warlock spam eldritch blast+ enable an attack from a Rogue/-5/+10 user. Also you lost proficiency which is odd in 5E.

      The Morph is probably the best EN5ider class RAW at least at lower levels. Whats better than a Mon Druid in bear form at level 2? A bear that can half damage from non magical weapons.

      To clarify, Zardnaar, you're commenting on the version from before you (and others) consulted on it.

      Are/will the updated pdfs available through EN5sider or are they only available through the Kickstarter (and presumably online elsewhere later on)?

      There's a post on EN5ider for EN5ider patrons which tells them how to get it.

      For those of us who don't kickstart, but, like, pay for stuff printed on dead trees with formal declarations of faith & credit printed on tiny slips of dead trees, what's the chance of actually finding one and making such a clandestine and barbaric exchange of tree cadavers?

      It will be printed on dead trees, but for now it's planned as a Kickstarter only item. Sorry!
