The Eight of Wands: A Class Hack for The Black Hack



Eight alternative character classes inspired by the 5th edition of that classic RPG, but designed for use with David Black’s The Black Hack (and other OSR systems) to extend its class options beyond the core four of Warrior, Thief, Cleric, and Conjurer. Included are class descriptions for the:

Barbarian whose rage and skill with two-handed weapons allows better criticals and heads to roll;

Ranger a resourceful fighter with command of the forest and mastery over beasts;

Smuggler with luck to spare and ability to move goods and people for gold and gain;

Poisoner whose tinctures, oils, and powders can be use to confer a variety of player-defined effects on friend and foe;

Paladin whose devotion to their ideal allows them to gain magical ability and alter their allies' position in initiative;

Druid who can call forth the power of lightning and transformation in defense of their territory then escape untraceably;

Sorcerer who uses their bodies vessals for living spells which change as a result of the caster’s heritage;

& the Warlock whose pact allows them to not only ask weapons, familiars, and favors of their master, but permanently alter their character sheet- for a price!

Quick question about the Paladin; for "Fearless in action" does "Ignore Overwhelming Opponent" refer to a specific type or classification of enemy, or does that just mean you get to ignore the attack from any enemy currently attacking you (within the per level per day restriction)? I feel like I'm just overthinking it to be honest.
Other than that, these are some fun looking classes.

For the Smuggler, the better lucky ability unlocks at lvl2? how often can it be used? can if be used for any D20 on the table?
For the Druid, he has to eat the raw heart to unlock the form or a raw heart every time he wants to transform?
Other then that I see how everything else works. Very nice :D

Hey Robert,

Thank you for the purchase and compliment.

Re: Smuggler
Yes, unlocks at level 2 and each number can be used only once then its gone for ANY d20 on the table

Re: Druid
Just have to eat the heart once- similar to a wizard copying a spell in a spell book.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
