Ranger Archetype: Whisperknife

Whisperknives originated in 3.5 as a halfling prestige class, moved to 4e as a paragon path for rogue, but I felt that the ranger’s magical nature in tandem with favored enemy and the idea that they are the “skirmishers” and “hunters” of the class spectrum made for an interesting ghostly assailant. @JrWarwick gave me the idea for a stealth magic ranger, and this is how … Continue reading Ranger Archetype: Whisperknife

Ranger Archetype: Relic Seeker

Today’s homebrew comes from an idea given to me by @Skoll_NorseWolf. It was suggested that I make a Ranger that seeks out artifacts and quests to destroy evil ones. Albeit that flavor was hard to convey, so I broke it down into the Relic Seeker, a ranger who hunts down magic items in general. Okay, I’ll admit, this art looks like a paladin, but it … Continue reading Ranger Archetype: Relic Seeker

The design came from a smattering of different suggestions on Twitter that eventually wrapped up together into the Oath of the Vault. My two big thank yous go out to Xai (@xaichai) and Kelly White (@thebeldragon) on Twitter, as I blended their suggestions into … Continue reading Sacred Oath: Oath of the Vault

If you’re looking to play a paladin that is awesome at crowd control and teamwork, this is the character for you. The suggestion for this subclass comes from DnDurken (@DnDurken), a frequent ally of … Continue reading Sacred Oath: Oath of Liberty

Sorcerous Origin: Beguiler

I’m proud to present, at long last, my take on beguiler. Though I deviated a bit from the original concept in 3.5, I think I made something that I am a little bit more… enchanted with. Let me know what you guys think! If you excuse me, I kind of want to start planning a Mastermind Rogue/Beguiler Sorcerer now. Art by Eric Dechamps, Wizards of … Continue reading Sorcerous Origin: Beguiler

Warlock Patron: The Lunar Guide

At long last, after some delay, I present to you a patron that was voted for on Twitter; you guys wanted a Moon Warlock, so I wrote one! I used several themes found in previous editions of D&D as well as incorporating small nods to varying myths surrounding the moon, such as polymorph (lycanthropy) as well as actual science reflected by spells such as control … Continue reading Warlock Patron: The Lunar Guide
