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.

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

So I have a pretty interesting question to anyone who might know the answer. If a player has the iron myrmidon archetype and uses Defensive Posture, does this make them immune to all damage? And if so does that seem a bit broken to anyone?

Hi, Kelvin. The phantasms are incorporeal, so weapons would pass through them and hit the channeler, as they occupy the same space.

Damage Immunities All, except for force, and bludgeoning,
piercing and slashing from magical weapons.

Making Phatasmic Recall basically useless, On top of that Why do you deal force damage with your Unarmed Strike and SPike as CA?

i may have missed this but the manifestation phantom thief states we use the phantom to steal a item. though it uses our skills. my question is since the phantom is invisible would we have advantage on stealing items? i know we wouldnt have advantage on picking locks unless we could be standing blocking the lock as the phantom picks it.

So I had a quick question about the phantom benefitting from other class features. For example if you multi classed rogue, would the phantom benefit from the sneak attack bonus? I'm sure there are other combinations but this one came to mind right off the bat.

I'm a bit confused about the Soul Burst (Lvl 18) Class Feature, What do you mean by "Enhance the Attacks Damage"? how is this any different from the normal Empower Attack use for Soul Dice?

It says a "you can expend a free soul die to enhance the attack’s damage." So I think it means you can add the soul dice to the attack without using it up. Normal Empower Attack expends the soul dice where soul burst does not.

I'm very curious about a lot the interactions between The Channeler's and their Phantasmal in regards to class features and feats. I understand the example in the FAQ, but examples of what's legal (if any) ontop of the example provided of what isn't?

This got me thinking too, if Phantasmals are completely separate from their Channeler's, how do feats like Sentinel or class features like Sneak Attack interact if both are considered two different entities?

Great work by the way, as you could probably suspect I love breaking the game, so this is the only real hang-up I had with the class. Everything else was really well done, so great stuff dude!

i just bought this and read it over and i was very impressed. iv been mauling it over in my head what a persona or jojos stand class would be like in my head and this is what i imagine in my head. that being said i have some questions and a few suggestions for the class. firstly do the spirits gain youre class abilities in full or are they seperate? example could i use my monk flurry of blows and fist damage die through the spirit or my fighters multi attacks and wizard spellcasting, rogue expertise through these summons? i just want to know for multiclassing purposes. as for fixes the chronos avenger is the one class out of all of them i would want "NEED" to take to level 20 and i love it so much that i am going to do exactly that. the soul burst feature should tack on to all attacks made at that point and would make iron myrmidon a contender to be a scary weapon and utility class that can go toe to toe with paladin and the chronos avenger a close range force that can stand up to monk. another thing...See more

can fury of blows from the monk class be transferred to the phantom as in it can preform the attack?

This is a brilliant concept, i'm just a bit concerned as to whether it might outshine other classes? How well did it perform during play-testing?

Another quick question, do you think this class could work with another player controlling the spirit? I'm thinking like a kind of roguish channeler whose chronos spirit is the soul of his long-dead detective partner (who he accidentally killed. It could be cool if the spirit doesn't remember his past).
This is a bit of a ridiculous idea, but do you think splitting the class could work in concept?

It would certainly be interesting, but it will require a special type of cooperation between 2 players. Just keep in mind that it is sometimes difficult for 2 different people in the same play group to make the schedule, so think of how they will deal with one player missing.

I think it’s a really cool concept and am going to try to get my dm to allow it. I wonder if there will be a skill monkey kind of subclass based on the Wild Card aspect of persona. You gain expertise in a skill or two and can expend soul dice to gain temporary proficiency in skills. I guess I’m asking if there could be a rogue aspect since there’s a wizard, monk, and fighter aspect

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.
