The Pale Master - D&D 5e Class
by Zachary M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/17/2019 13:52:08

I started playing D&D 5e 3 years ago and have fallen in love ever since. The first character I wanted to make was a necromancer but after seeing the Wizard subclass I quickly was dissapointed. Over the years I've always wanted to play a necromancer but I was given very little oportunity nor the tools to do so in a way that interested me. I've been very critical of homebrew I allow or use, because for me I like using the rules as a tool to tell stories for my players and I enjoy the same consistancy as a player. If you search "homebrew necromancer class" your sure to find a plethora of options but of the massive amount that I looked at only the Pale Master has given me the feeling of an actual necromancer in a balanced well rounded way. However while I think very highly of this class, I've noticed that for the Path of Ash subclass you are given two reaction based abilities on top two other reaction based class abilities. Making it so high level Pale Master's have 4 reactions at any given time on top of other basic reactions such as attacks of opportunites. Though this can been seen as both a design choice and a flaw. On one hand it reinforces that the leader of an army of bone is most comfortable sitting behind their masses of undeath and when they are swarmed by combatents they are overwhelmed as they can't properely utilize all their functions. However on the other hand it can be seen as agrivating to have to covet your reaction so heavily in order to use your level 20 ability on yourself sacrificing your other reaction based abilities in the case that you would need to resist death. However again this can be seen as a design choice but seeing as it is your level 20 ability I was expecting it to be a natural occurence very similiar to the half-orc's Relentless Enduracnce in addition to also gaining advantage on death saving throws. So if I was to change any part of this class those two parts (the activation of your level 20 ability and perhaps adding advantage on death saving throws) would be the only two adjustments as all other parts of the class from what I can tell are well rounded and thought out. I would highly recomened to any player using this class to also talk to your DM about the author's other supplement (which is free) Grimlores Grimoire. Which adds a huge amount of dark and twisted themed spells to the game, however getting your DM to both agree to let you use a custom class and have them read a huge list of spells can be a bit much for any DM. I would recomened simply selecting the spells you would choose from the supplement and having those spells individually greenlit, along with the ones associated with your subclass. Overall this has quickly become my favorite homebrew class out there and I can't recomend it enough to anyone who wants to play a full on necromancer.

The Vicar - D&D 5e Class
by Connor B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/27/2019 17:02:17

Good class, love the feel and theme and love all of it EXCEPT the spell list. my biggest gripe is how theres no notation marking the spells from your own third party source against the "official" spells, and it makes it a minor annoyance to sort throw it is all apart from that its a great class and well done

Harbingers of Life & Death: Deathseer, Pale Master, and Vicar (Fantasy Grounds 5e Class Pack)

What's not to love?!

You get new classes that adds even more diversity of play for your DnD group. As a DM of a large group, I find things like this to be invaluable. I don't have to do the work and yet get a fully flushed out, thoroughly tested, set of classes for my game.
