D&D 5E Revised Fighter/Revised Wizard/Revised Cleric/Revised Rogue for Feedback


I was thinking of trying out these customizable classes as an alternative to the base classes (so no Paladin/Revised Wizard, but Revised Cleric/Revised Wizard would be ok).

This merging of classes allows new archtypes such as:
The heavy armor martial artist zealot that rages.
The fiend pact arcane caster with metamagics and a spellbook to prepare spells from.
The trickery cleric that wild shapes and uses the druid spell list.
The metal armor wearing shepherd druid that learns eldritch invocations instead of wild shape.
The unarmored champion strength rogue sneak attacking with a greatsword while granting bardic inspiration to teammates.

It is assumed that most fighters will choose ki or rage (which could be restrung as a Grit stance for RP purposes) at level 2 (action surge is mainly there as a legacy option and is also added as a rogue option). A revised fighter “monk” has some trade offs for gaining 3rd/4th attack, d10 HD, increased customization, and potentially transitioning to single attribute dependency; people that prefer the old features could play the standard monk.
