Well, that was fun

How about a Fighter archetype? The Tempest, a fighter known for their speed, agility and their use of the Two-Weapon Fighting style to deal out damage. ;)
Well there's a Tempest bererker, so it would need a new name, but the concept is good. I'd suggest maybe there's a lot of overlap with the duelist though.

So, what archetype should I tackle next?
Could you start a new thread with a poll of each of the classes? You don’t necessarily have to abide by it, but it would help people realize that this was going on and weigh in.

Also, sounds like a good time to repost my helpful graph, now updated to include the necromancer:

Looks like artificer and savant need the most love (the two classes I'm least familiar with!)
I’m currently working on a GPG piece with three new savants, and I have plans for six others!

I think part of what made this so successful was that the community (and you) had a very strong and recognizable theme to work with. As such, I think we should work with classes you’re more familiar with that still need love. The two that jump out are the sorcerer and the cleric, neither of which has shown up in the GPG yet.

One of the O5e cleric subclasses that A5e doesn’t have an answer for is the Trickery Cleric. As A5e clerics focus more on the cleric’s religion and charism rather than the god they worship, what about a Holy Fool? Subvert social norms, confuse people, make radical and shocking acts of devotion, and perhaps tank a surprising amount of damage because you’re used to being abused.

I was thinking of a Fighter archetype that took a particular fighting style and created something more from it. I didn't think it would overlap with the Duelist (aka the Swashbuckler). ;)

Explain more of what you're thinking here. I'm intrigued...
The PC is a Shepherd Druid, but what's most important for the character is the spirit totem. The player wrote up a whole bit thing where the spirits are actually very important for the tribe, and the PC's spirit is actually a very major spirit who is willing to smack the PC around if they get out of line (The player really enjoys hamming this up). When the PC summons an animal, the player actually says that the spirit transforms into that animal, rather than summoning a different animal.

So... something like that.

I like this "shaman" take on the druid.
