Introducing the Soulbound

The soulbound is a wildly ambitious new class for 5th Edition that allows for unprecedented customization. Soulbound are individuals who've come into contact with a cursed artifact that's merged with them, irrevocably altering their physiology and psyche to form a new entity that's not altogether humanoid. When creating a soulbound, the player picks two different subtypes that relate to a) the nature and origin of their cursed artifact, and b) its type and function when manifested for use in combat. Each of these two key decisions has a massive impact on the starting features of a soulbound and its progression throughout the game. Moreover, when creating a soulbound, the player has unparalleled opportunity to invoke their own creativity and define for themselves the feel and flavor of how their cursed artifact manifests.

This iteration of the soulbound, Version 1.0, provides 5 Artifact Origins and 5 Artifact Types–allowing for 25 vastly different permutations of the class from a mechanical standpoint, whilst also allowing for unlimited roleplaying opportunities.

We've worked extremely hard on making the soulbound the best that it can be. However, there's always room for improvement and this goes doubly for class and player options in general, where unexpected synergies and exploits are always possible. If you notice anything about the soulbound that you feel was unintentional, has been overlooked, relates to balancing, or affects your enjoyment of the class - please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at, or else leave a comment here, and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Also, if you like the class and want to see more from us, please do let us know via the comments and post a review of it for others too.

Also, have you checked out our other original 5th Edition class, the Slayer?

Really like the concept of this class and the customization offered. I'm considering playing a sacred stalwart for my next game. I just have one question, what does the untouchable ability for the eviscerator do? The exact text is "At 6th level, you can use your reaction to make an
opportunity attack that would hit you miss." Is this supposed to say "even if you miss?" Anyways, great job with the class, I'll be looking to purchase your slayer class next!

Thanks so much for your kind words and positive feedback Adrian! Regarding the Untouchable feature, the intention is for you to spend your reaction when a creature hits you with an opportunity attack in order to treat that attack as if it had missed instead. So, for example; you move out of a hostile creature's reach without taking the Disengage action >>> it makes an opportunity attack and hits you >>> and then you spend your reaction to ignore the hit before the GM rolls damage for it. Does that make sense? We'll be revisiting the class in the near future and making a few improvements so I'll make a note to look specifically at that feature's text at the same time. - Daniel McDonald

Original electronic
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.
