The Mage College’s Stance on Mike Mearls

This art by Kannah Casler was going to be applied to a subclass for 5e’s paladin this week. However, I don’t think that I could, in good conscience, ascribe my wife’s art to something for 5e until further notice. Every time we at the Mage College create something for 5e, it is magnifying the base game further. However, in light of the renewed controversy surrounding … Continue reading The Mage College’s Stance on Mike Mearls

An Elegant Weapon for a More Civilized Age

May 4th is kind of a holiday, right? That being said, we have a gift for you. Here, have a lightsaber in 5e; just don’t point it at your face. Yeah, looking at you, Skywalker. Lightsabers in 5e Each lightsaber has a history, a purpose, and a legacy.

Character Creation Queries

I struggle creating characters sometimes, especially for one-shots. Sometimes even characters for short arcs – I can pick any combination that I haven’t played yet and walk into it, but unless I understand the who/what/when/where/why of a character, I don’t get much enjoyment out of them. I often fall onto using someone I’ve played previously, when I know I should be exploring new ideas. Maybe … Continue reading Character Creation Queries

Martial Archetype: Duelist

Very recently I was inspired to indulge and create a subclass for myself, for my golden boy Daerthalion (pictured above) which I have up til recently tried to avoid. Sometimes, you just have to fight for yourself and what you want, which coincidentally works for this subclass, because I present to you the Duelist Martial archetype. I’m not lying when I say I think this … Continue reading Martial Archetype: Duelist

Mastering the Way of Four Elements

As I scrolled through Twitter recently, I saw that my friend and fellow fabulous creator Matthew Foreman was wishing that Four Elements monk was better… or rather, wishing someone would make it not suck. This is no new statement, as it has been shared that Way of Four Elements monk is one of the lowest ranking subclasses alongside Beast Master ranger. Very recently in a … Continue reading Mastering the Way of Four Elements

The Resolve to Shine Brighter – An Editorial & Apology

Yesterday, I posted a tweet that inadvertently poked fun at the way many people play their tabletop roleplaying games by teasing a fake stream that forbid using the rules of a ttrpg. I won’t waste time elaborating. The bottom line is, I oversimplified, and I was vitriolic in my method, and I am sorry. Some people thought that I was being genuine and were actually … Continue reading The Resolve to Shine Brighter – An Editorial & Apology

Love Domain: 2020 Version

Another Chance at Love Recently, a rather poor interpretation of a Love Domain cleric made its way to the public in a leaked Unearthed Arcana. While we hope there are corrections made to address the thematic issues in it, I had written a Love Domain subclass years prior. I had recently posted the older version on Twitter in response to it, but it doesn’t do … Continue reading Love Domain: 2020 Version
