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 particular.

It is still a work in progress, but you should be able to see where I'm going with this.

In a nutshell, the Animal Companion works like the Artificer's Steel Defender (acts on your initiative immediately after your turn, requires your bonus action to enable their own actions). This beast master conclave proposes four stat blocs (robust, agile, flying, and riding) for your companion. The companion's abilities are further precised by selecting an animal fitting the stat bloc (for example, bear is one possible animals for robust companions). They have a power boost at level 11th.

There is a fifth stat bloc in the making for "exotic" animals, and one of the ranger's "invocations" allows flying mounts at 11th level.
