Advanced New Base Class for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition – By Don't Stop Thinking Youtube Channel

The Channeler offers a unique new playstyle with lots of flexibility and opportunities to formulate new tactics. Whether you're into roleplaying, exploration or combat, this class has the options to cover all your needs. Each of the 3 subclasses offers vastly different experiences.

This class is inspired by narrative heavy series such as Jojo's Bizzare Adventure and Persona. So strange abilities that can be creatively applied on various roleplay situations are abundant.

The channeler, however, has its own distinct lore and offers a new spin to the the trope. 

Because there are just so many new D&D 5e classes being published, it can be hard for new dungeon masters to keep up with all the intricacies of the class. So, to assist DMs to understand the class quickly, a cheat sheet is included. It details the class' strengths, weaknesses and ways to challenge players playing this class. It can be viewed using the quick preview.

This class has been playtested and balanced by many players and experienced dungeon masters.

I love the class, it's so creative and it's gonna be a blast, but I have a question: do you have any plans to make some possible channeler enemies that players can face?

Also, would it be possible to make more explicit what you can order a phantasm to do? The manifestations imply that a phantasm normally can't carry objects. Are they able to manipulate things in the world like phasing through a door and unlocking it from the other side? Thanks!

A couple extra questions.
1: how does invisibility on the channeler work with the phantasm? Does telepathically ordering the phantasm to do something break the invis? Or does it remain since invisibility says when *you* take the attack action, activate something, etc
2: can a monk deflect missiles the chronos avengers spikes?

If a channeler were to cast shapechange on themself, would they be able to use their phantasm and features normally even while in a different form?

Hey CJ, a question both myself a fellow DM wanted to ask
Could a phantasm be trapped in an Iron Flask? If so, would that mean it cannot be dismissed and is trapped there until freed?

Would anything break if I made an item in similar fashion to the arrows from jojos, that when attuned by a channeler, gives their phantasm booster abilities in their niche?
I'm thinking maybe a boost to the chronos avengers time stop duration, or maybe just giving it 2 uses per rest.
Would this break anything?

Hey CJ quick question,
In the description for the healing energy manifestation it says that, “You roll the number of dice you have spent and add your Charisma modifier to the result”, what does that mean when it says, “the number of dice you have spent”?

At higher levels, you can spend up to 3 soul dice at a time. So you can heal 3d8 + Cha.

Does this offer a guide on how to create your own phantasms? I really love the concept and the video accompanying it and if there was a bit for tips on how we make our own that'll really solidify interests.

Hey CJ, got a question
How does the phantasm work with divine smite? Is it incompatible?
Thanks! Also I wait eagerly for more phantasm types! Super eager to see more

Hi Blake. You're right, it is incompatible. I am working on a few more subclasses and related content, but most likely they will be released in 2020.

I look forward to it!
Is it likely to get released in the earlier quarter or half of 2020?

Is this same as https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Channeler_(5e_Class) I really like that one and if they are the same, I might consider buying.

No. This Channeler class is based off of "stands" from the anime and manga Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
It's a very polished homebrew, but you should check the free previews to see if it's what you want.

What condition would the enemy be considered while in stopped time? Paralysis I think is the closest one but Idk if there's a specific thing you had in mind for it or if you just wanted it to be plain no bonuses.

Plain no bonuses. It is already very powerful.

What would you think about changing Chronos avengers time-stop to be a number of seconds equal to your level, i'm sure it would be more op but this would let you do it for 1 round when you get it and then as you level up to like level 14+ you can timestop twice or have time stopped for two rounds. Could also give some extra seconds so that if you want to use it outside of combat it doesnt feel like a waste.
I also think that most of the immunities should be removed, keep the non magic weapons but not being affected by everything else kinda makes phantasmal recall obsolete.
Customer avatar
CJ L August 29, 2019 2:55 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Increasing the number of rounds from the time stop feature would make it slightly OP. But you can homebrew it if your group allows you to. Phantasmal Recall will be useful for future subclasses.
Customer avatar
Blake B September 21, 2019 1:34 pm UTC

But recall is therefore useless for the 3 already published then?
Why not remove it from the base class and replace it with something else. The just add phantasmal recall to the subclasses that actually use it?

Why does "Use Objects" make the objects the phantasm picks up just as invisible as the phantasm itself, but when the Myrmidon uses its phantasmal arsenal, the weapons are visible until level 11?
It just seems strange that a random brick can be made invisible just by picking it up, but weapons bonded to the Myrmidon by a magical ritual are visible for such a long time, and that's the only you get at level 11. Am I misunderstanding?

So when it says that the phatasms are immune to all damage except for force, and blut, pierce, and slash from magical weapons. Does that mean if they were hit with a spell that delt fire damage it wouldn't hurt it or if someone managed to hit it with a sword for example, it would just do no damage to the phatasm resulting in no damage to the channeler itself.
Customer avatar
CJ L August 29, 2019 2:51 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
That's right. Only force damage or magical slashing, bludgeoning and piercing damage will be transferred to the channeler. A few boss monsters can do that, but most low CR monsters will have to target the channeler directly.

Do you have any guidelines for creating new phantasms? Since a few friends and I are planning to do "Strahdust Crusaders".

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.
