Awesome Options: Signature Powers


You can teach an old adventurer new tricks! 

Do you sometimes wish you had more interesting choices during combat rounds? Perhaps you think per encounter powers was one aspect of 4e you'd prefer hadn't been scrapped?

Awesome Options: Signature Powers is the solution to your woes! This set of variant rules introduces encounter powers, known as signature powers, into the 5e game. While these powers will be particularly interesting to players of fighters and other martial classes who often face the dull reality that their most effective strategy is to repeatedly hit things until they fall over, everyone can gain interesting new tricks from the implementation of this option, and they're not just for martial characters. Signature powers are not tied to any particular class and there are two types of signature power: maneuvers and thaumaturgies. Magic users will want to look at the thaumaturgies, but shouldn't discount the maneuvers from consideration! Most are tied to one or more of the six ability scores, including many that work best when used by characters with high Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma.

This product includes:

  • Complete rules for using and recovering per-encounter signature powers.
  • The Signature Power Mastery feat, for those who really want to invest in their new powers. 
  • 72 signature powers, including:
    • 10 Strength-based maneuvers.
    • 10 Dexterity-based maneuvers.
    • 8 Constitution-based maneuvers.
    • 11 Intelligence-based maneuvers.
    • 10 Wisdom-based maneuvers.
    • 11 Charisma-based maneuvers.
    • 12 thaumaturgies perfect for all types of spellcaster.
    • 14 maneuvers don't rely on any particular ability.
    • Yes, that all adds up to more than 72, but some maneuvers work well with more than one ability score!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
