    Swordmage class

    Hey there. So this is my first attempt at cooking up a class from scratch for D&D 5th edition. It's the swordmage class, which first appeared in the Forgotten Realms Player's Guide for 4th edition, although I also drew on similar archetypes like the duskblade class or bladesinger prestige class...

    D&D 5E DMs/GMs: Polling Your Players About D&D Next

    Excited as I am about 4th edition and many of its rule changes I was kind of surprised they cut out half-orcs and 3rd edition style half-elves (i.e., half-eladrin) out of the game. While I know that half-orcs were cut for "background" reasons and half-eladrin will likely make a later appearance...
