5e Classes: The Godling

Watermarked PDF

Like a God

With a word, Ariadne focuses the rays of the sun into the eyes of the king’s guards, stealing a sword from the blinded men to accompany the ball of yarn she plans to deliver to her champion—Theseus. As her grandfather’s chariot rumbles across the heavens, lighting all the land, Ariadne readies herself to deliver these gifts to her champion. Despite her father’s decree, the horned guardian of the labyrinth will receive no more sacrifices—she shall see to it.

Unlike a cleric or paladin, a godling is not the conduit for a god’s will. Unlike a warlock, her powers do not come from some deal with a patron. She is a mortal who has inherited power by the direct ancestry from or intercession of a deity that she can wield in whatever manner she wishes. Most godlings have a divine parent or ancestor, but some are granted godly power as a reward for their actions or for other, more inscrutable reasons.

The Godling is a 5e class representing those who are empowered by a divine lineage, but aren’t (yet, at least) full demigods. This lineage manifests as a set of powers that make them extraordinarily adept, clever, eldritch, or mighty. As she grows in experience, she follows a Path to Glory, that drives her toward being a creature of legend.

Hey, I was just wondering about the Adept Lineage. The Spells known of 1st level or higher paragraph states that the table provides info for spells known at higher levels. However, I cannot see this information only cantrips know and spell slots gained at higher levels. Is there something I am missing?

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.
