I'm also toying with the idea for a quick (run in 2-3 hours) adventure for Dark Sun which could also be a starting point for something like an A5E Dark Sun Starter Kit. If you are interested in helping to compile stuff I can open a new thread for that
I prefer the above option actually, but mostly because I'm not a fan of the path of least resistance method; ie, "just reskin existing 5e elements".GM Binder also has at least homebrewed attempts for a 5e version of Dark Sun. 1. Dark Sun Player's Guide 5th Edition D&D by Toucanbuzz 2. Dark Sun Player's Guide 5e by JayStripes This one does have a Psion class in it.
True. Sometimes, it's better to just reinvent them the way you want them to be rather than converting something that's already there.
A little teaser:
Next month's thematic toolkit, Itinerant, is Cleric/Esper/Ranger. So look for a new Esper archetype and Esper/Cleric and Esper/Ranger synergy feat chains in that.
I think she was planning on working something for martial characters.
Works for me!If one wants Esper to be really flexible, how about:
"Light Armor Proficiency plus either Medium Armor Proficiency or one Esper Skill"
since not all Esper got Insight
Yup! Working on Martial Artistry. Including some new damage-centric Flourishes and Aegises for the Savant, new combat-oriented archetypes for non-martial characters (not Bladesinger but kinda Bladesingy), four new martial traditions (Duskwood Sniper, Inquisitor's Brand, Serpent's Grip, and Thundering Bombard)... Guns. Other stuff.I think she was planning on working something for martial characters.
The first martial tradition sounds like it was made for an O5e Gloomstalker Ranger who has the Archery Fighting Style. The Inquisitor's Brand tradition makes me think of PF1's Inquisitor class. Inquisitor – d20PFSRD I am guessing this martial tradition is for Clerics who are feeling a little roguish. Thundering Bombard for the Artificer class? Or for the Fighter (Gunslinger)? Fighter: Gunslinger (HB) - DND 5th Edition Serpent's Grip- something the Nedraz to play with?four new martial traditions (Duskwood Sniper, Inquisitor's Brand, Serpent's Grip, and Thundering Bombard)..
sounds very much like a tradition focused on long range/stealthy weapon use. like "hang off a tree by your legs while you snipe a dude 600 feet away with a longbow" type stuff.The first martial tradition sounds like it was made for an O5e Gloomstalker Ranger who has the Archery Fighting Style.
my guess is a lot of lockdown/marking stuff.
i mean, obviously it's about guns, but i can't help but feel like it's going to be a very aggressive ranged-focused tradition. stuff like rocket jumping or shooting people into other people or bullets through multiple people or shooting stuff (maybe even spells?) out of the air to detonate it early.
the vibe i got was grappling type stuff. like, maybe preventing certain types of actions/spell components, or being able to negate and/or travel with a target's teleport if you have them grappled.Serpent's Grip- something the Nedraz to play with?
