    Default 3.5 SRD cleric domains overhaul

    3.5 SRD Cleric domains conversion
    by WrittenInBlood

    Now revised and changed accordingly. Some features are made more useful and synergistic, Protection domain merged with Community, and added bits of fluff here and there.

    *Updated domains, presented here.

    Skipped domains
    Chaos, Good, Evil, Law Ė because whole 5e is less devoted to alignments, and deities arenít now Evil or Good just because. Good trickery or war, Evil light or life Ė anything is possible.
    Scalykind Ė thereís no very ďscalykindyĒ spells in 5e, nor character options except Dragonborn.

    Great work!

    Minor nitpick though: you spelled 'darkness' in the spell section of the darkness domain wrong.
    Have you had enough of unreasonably high LA's and unplayable monsters in 3.5? Then check out the LA-assignment thread! Don't hesitate to give feedback!

    Extended signature!
