View Full Version : D&D 5e/Next Warriors of Myth and Legend: 2 Fighter Archetypes

2017-09-09, 10:28 AM
I'm looking for some feedback on these two archetypes I've designed for a fighter. My intent is to try and align the 5E DnD fighter with the design goals outlined in this old article (https://web.archive.org/web/20120501101643/http://www.wizards.com/DnD/Article.aspx?x=dnd/4ll/20120430), which was written before the Next playtest kicked off.

Google Drive Link (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mqAzuTXE5dTjRvS0ZMMDFfSlU). It's also on Drive-Thru RPG/DM's Guild and I appreciate feedback/exposure there too, but I'm not 100% sure if it's within the board rules to post a link to that here (it's a free document, but the website does sell stuff).

I've made a lot of comments about my design decisions and what process led me to the end result in the Foreword and Design Notes, so I won't go on too much here. I will warn you though: these archetypes are probably more high-powered than the default fighter archetypes. That's intentional, and I felt like that was necessary to meet the design goals outlined in the above article. With that said, I am very much open to all comments and criticisms. My hope is to not only give the fighter more tactical options in combat (in these archetypes, at least), but also to make them capable of spectacle that is somewhat on-level with higher level spells.
