Character Options from Across the Multiverse!Fully bookmarked 130 page PDF with 45 new subclasses, 30 backgrounds, 34 new spells, and cultural overviews!
The planes hold an abundance of wonders, treasure, and excitement, enough to fill any campaign with untold sights, riches beyond compare, and horrendous monsters never before seen. These aspects are the purview of the Dungeon Master, who has an infinite sandbox with which to play around and construct extraordinary settings in which to stage countless stories.
But what about the players? There’s no reason to leave them out – they’re the stars of the show after all! The multiverse holds infinite varieties and possibilities ranging from just off from standard to the truly bizarre. Heroes of the Infinite Planes helps you harness those possibilities and build a character cut from a wholly different cloth.
Within these pages are new subclass options for all 13 of the base classes in D&D, along with overviews of the cultures found throughout the planes. New backgrounds are provided to ground a character in the multiverse, and over 30 new spells can be found to allow a magic-using character to grab hold the planes and make it do their bidding – for a short time, at least.
