    D&D 5E Homebrewed Ranger Version 2.0 (Build on a Warlock Frame)

    Obligatory Homebrewery link (stripped of images) Version 2 of my ranger redesign (because rangers are hot! right now and I've been meaning to showcase my v2 for a while) Highlights: Built on a warlock frame of 1/2 level, not unlike the PHB ranger is based on a sorcerer frame of 1/2 level in...

    D&D 5E Ranger re-build as a half warlock

    Yes, yet another ranger re-master. It’s built as a short rest class on a warlock frame. A half-warlock actually, not unlike the PHB ranger is a half-sorcerer when it comes to spellcasting. The warlock has been popular as a ranger frame recently. Intriguing. This version was made in the early...

    D&D 5E Beast Master conclave (built on the Battle Smith's Steel Defender)

    [edit] Version 2: Beast Master Conclave [edit] Ranger Redux à la Laurefindel in this thread here Looking for insight/feedback on a project I've been working on recently. I had made a remastered ranger (on a half-warlock frame) a while ago, and been meaning to work on this archetype in...

    D&D 5E Synergy of a INT-based warlock

    Just for the sake of the experiment, imagine that Warlock was using Intelligence as their casting stat. What could it imply? Loses SAD with Paladins, Sorcerers, and Bard (and the few martial classes gaining from high CHA like swashbuckler). Gains SAD with Wizards and Artificers. Potentially...

    D&D 5E Looking for curse...

    I’m looking for a curse to afflict my players with. I don’t foresee them to be affected for much more than half a session, or the whole session at most, but the time where they are afflicted should build-up to a high stake, high stress climax. So I’m looking for a lethal curse that can kill in a...

    D&D 5E Skill knacks (houserule)

    I've been fiddling with the idea that characters could have natural inclinations or aptitudes, which for the purpose of this discussion will be called "knacks". Knacks are not supposed to be something you need or you trained in - just something you are naturally good at. The easiest way of...

    D&D 5E Domain of Fate?

    In one of my worlds I have a culture venerating the Triad (the principle behind the fates, the norns, and similar trinity from other cultures). And since I try to make a few racial class archetypes for each of the playable races and cultures, I thought that a Fate Divine Domain would be fitting...

    D&D 5E Homebrewed bard and monk archetypes

    Here are two archetypes I created for villains and support characters for my Girl Genius-inspired Eberron game. In the end, all support characters ended-up using a stat block similar to the Battle Smith Artificer's steel defender, whereas player-characters can use their own bonus action to use...

    Designing Space Battle in RPG

    I'm making a sci fi (space opera) RPG, because making RPGs is fun. It has been a long journey, but my last roadblock and untested gameplay is about space battles. I'm hoping that exchanging on the subject it here will help me focus my thoughts and receive new ideas/criticism. Goal: The intent...

    Alien RPG custom Character Sheet

    This RPG looks cool. I bought the book; it has everything I would expect from an Alien franchise RPG, but ! was still impressed by the production value. Rules are simple and evocative enough for the genre, lots of fluff too. I like it. The only thing I wasn't trilled about was the character...

    D&D 5E Comic-Style Play (looking for suggestions)

    I'm starting a new game (as DM) based on a comic-strip (graphic novel really) set in the world of Eberron. For this game I am departing from my usual "more-medieval-than-the-usual-D&D" style toward a more pulp action, comic-style approach. In the graphic novel, characters (both heroes and...

    D&D 5E TWF and Extra Attacks as Bonus Action (help!)

    Let’s say that I want to have the extra attack granted by TWF stack with the extra attack granted by berserker barbarian, haste spell, and the « cleave » clause of GWM. Still, i want all of those to require a bonus action when use individually. How should I word that out?

    D&D 5E Return to Euriga

    Last fall, I posted this thread presenting a re-fluff of all full and semi-spellcasting classes in 5e D&D. Thinking that the idea has some merits, I revised my class re-skin, race re-skin, and brewed a quick-and-dirty setting to put them in. So here's the elevator pitch: I don't expect this...

    D&D 5E On GWF and a versatile fighting style

    Ok, I'm thinking out loud here and would appreciate your input. About a versatile fighting style... Versatile is a cool concept that evokes many heroic fiction characters like Aragorn, Mad Martigan, Conan, Wulfgar, or Thor to name a few, as well as archetypes such as the katana wielding samurai...

    Musing on some variant and homebrewed rules: feedback and insight wanted

    Thinking out loud here, and I’d love to have your feedback. (for a TL;DR version, skip to the second post) I have a new campaign in mind for D&D 5e. It's been cooking for years. For that campaign, I mean to put a bit more emphasis on the mundane and introduce a bit of realism. Before you all...

    [5e] (help wanted) Re-fluffing Spiritual Weapon

    Magic is by definition supernatural, I get that. But I'd like to have your suggestions and opinions about re-fluffing the spiritual weapon spell. Mechanically speaking, I'm cool with the spell. What I don't like however, it's that spiritual weapon creates an entity that is not an entity; you...

    Question about IP and fan-made material

    Hiya, I'm not sure this is the right forum for this kind of question, but I've got this roleplaying game I made... In a nutshell, it's a hack of Cubicle 7's The One Ring's (as the roleplaying game) system set in the FFG's Twilight Imperium (as the board game) universe. So basically I'm...
