I think there is a lot of low hanging fruit for the Sorcerer and Warlock still left to pick, but, yeah: most of the ideas in this thread are either narratively esoteric or mechanics driven.I agree with Crawford here, most of the 'standard' tropes are covered. Reading this list of archetypes in this thread kind of reiterates this. While a lot of the suggested ideas in the thread are good, I would not consider them 'standard' tropes.
The plant druid was a good idea above though, surprised that one hasn't been done.
If I would pick a standard trope (pretty much present in every literature) not expressed, maybe:
Doesn't the scout do this? Or do you mean with a pet? Whatever way you did it it would have to use a class other than ranger as it's basis.Nonmagical ranger
Yes! I knew I was missing something.Witch hunter paladin
The drunken master really should have done this. I have houseruled that drunken masters treat improvised weapons as monk weapons.Improvised weapon monk
Yup, I do wish people would stick to the original premise of the thread: "what core concepts are missing" rather than "what whacky idea can I come up with". Both 2nd and 3rd edition (and pathfinder) descended into wackiness in order to sell books, and every "nethermancer*" proposed weakens the strength of the core argument.I think there is a lot of low hanging fruit for the Sorcerer and Warlock still left to pick, but, yeah: most of the ideas in this thread are either narratively esoteric or mechanics driven.
My daughter played an Ancient Dragon Warlock from a home brew I found here.Barbarian: "tooth and claw" physically transformed when raging. Goes back to the original Norse ber-serkir who where believed to literally transform into bears. In literature, Beorn in The Hobbit.
Monk: 1/3 caster of cleric spells. Sacred Fist (3rd edition). And I think there was something of this sort in Oriental Adventures (I haven't read it since the 80s so my memory is hazy).
Warlock: Pact of The Ancient Dragon. Also, It would be nice to have something other than chain/book/blade pact gifts.
