This is mainly 5e, ir A5E stuff. Is it a particular individual that produces stuff you like?

What are some of your favourite homebrew classes, sub-classes etc?

Why?

Please provide links.

For me it begins and ends with Kibblestasty.
Yea, Kibblestasty's stuff is the best, can't wait for my Kickstarter to arrive.

I'm also a fan of Laserllama's stuff, which I believe I recommended to OP a few days ago on another thread.

I've also used a lot of the classes from Mage Hand Press; I especially like their Warmage, Necromancer and Witch classes, but all of their stuff is pretty good.

Benjamin Huffman has done some stuff I like, a scholar class which I always forget to play because we use dnd beyond. He also did manuscript class (arcane half caster) which looks good, though I think I'd probably make some changes to it.

I've been seeing a superhero class that sometimes pops up on reddit with a new version, the Empowered by u/Tandra_Boy. Not sure if it is the latest version, but I've downloaded version 2.0. I'm just trying to work out if it's something I want to add to a regular game or if it is something I want to use for a fantasy Avengers type game.

Only one I've played is the Blood Hunter, and I'm enjoying it a lot so far. Air genasi order of the mutant. Mobile feat and using the scion of elemental air feat from the new UA.

Lots of options to pick from, while being another pure martial so I don't need to be a yet another full caster. So far I'm finding that it's a glass cannon. Dishing out a lot of damage, but unable to take it. I wish it had more subclasses though. Maybe a vampiric one and a draconic one.

I have seen any of these in play (and, therefore, cannot comment on balance), but from a read through (I'll add links later)

Light Armor Fighter variant and its Brawler, Corsair, Duelist, Gallant, Kensei, Musketeer, Swashbuckler martial archetypes (Khaalis in the dowload section)
Martial Ranger (AgenderArcee)
Shaman (Michael Wolf)
Scholar (Kyle Grant)
Witch (Walrock Homebrew')

College of Folklore (Forgot My Dice website)
College of Sea-Singers (Rich Howard at Tribality Website)
Commander Martial Archetype ( David "Jester" Gibson 5MWD)
Exorcism Domain (Brandes Stoddard) the final version is published in Mysteries of the Gods (Tribality)
Spirit Domain (Brandess Stoddard): the final version is published in Mysteries of the Gods (Tribality)
Brawler, Corsair, Fencer, Hospitaler Martial Archetypes (Middle Finger of Vecna (Mage Hand Press website))
Acrobat Roguish Achetype (Middle Finger of Vecna (Mage Hand Press website))
Investigator Roguish Archetype (Brandes Stoddard)
Arcane Origin (AgenderArcee)

Tidal Sorcery Origin Brandes Stoddard): the final version is published in Three Sorcerous Arts (Tribality)
Winter-Kin Sorcerous Origin (Brandes Stoddard): the final version is published in Three Sorcerous Arts (Tribality)

I also agree that KibblesTasty, Laser Llama, and Mage Hand Press (including their Middle Finger of Vecna website) are worth looking at

Haven't delved too much into others' stuff so uh...

Is it cheating to say my own? I'm plinking away at a homebrew Summoner, and I have made a homebrew Silver Pyromancer PrC that I still need to playtest (but no one has been interested in letting me do so.)

The baseline skeleton of the Summoner is done and I have the theme for the class overall and the three subclasses (the Sign of the Protean, the Sign of the Muses, and the Sign of the Chimaera) and the three sub-flavors (Elemental, Celestial, and Umbral.) Am mostly finished with the spell list (slightly longer than the default Warlock list, much shorter than the default Sorcerer list.) Still need to work on the statblock for the summoned creature, which I call a "Visitant," a lovely word and perfect for the concept. Sign of the Protean is mostly finished.

I love a lot of stuff on GM Binder, but I can't use any of it. I've never figured out why, but when I print or print to PDF, it always becomes an unusable mess. Word run off the page, I lose information...

But reading on the site, there's a lot of creativity in our extended community.

It may be a browser issue. I know I've had to be really really careful with how I do my stuff on NaturalCrit because the markup they use there may look 100% fine in one browser and look like absolute garbage in another.

I will check that out. It's worth some tinkering if I can get usable copies of some of these.

ETA: It works. Issues in Firefox, but on Chrome-based Vivaldi it comes out fine... although I'd stopped using Vivaldi because of a weird quirk where printing to PDF somehow makes the file size ridiculous. (Like a text log from a single session on Roll20, <100 Kb on Firefox, >6000 kb on Vivaldi?) This seems to be larger than I'd expect for the size, but not to that degree.
