Race Based Class Archetypes


Introduction: Optional class archetypes based on what might be thematically available to a particular character race or subrace. Options are based on 5th edition rules and Forgotten Realms setting. These may be expanded to other races or settings at the DM’s discretion.


Not only have the original options been revised and updated, but this document has been expanded to include all of the following: Dragonborn (Paladin of Bahamut, Warlock Patron Tiamat), Forest Gnome (Ranger option, and Rogue option), Wood Elf (Fighter archetype), Dwarf (Druid option the Stone Steward, and Hearth Guard Paladin), Half-Orc (Sorcerer option, Barbarian Shaman option, Paladin of Gruumsh, and Cleric of Yurtrus), and a Gith human subrace (Fighter archetype Githyanki, and Monk Githzerai). Also included are two Duergar Rogue archetypes, which were originally located only in my Underdark Races submission, located here 


That’s almost 30 pages of material for a total of 15 race specific class archetypes!

1/14/2017 Revised and updated existing archetypes and added new archetypes.

9/16/16 Added a warlock patron option as it is race based. However, it was originally created for my Storm King's Thunder Character Options submission located here:


I also included it as a bonus file in my Warlock Otherworldly Patron Options submission located here:


I also have a number of Ravenloft oriented options uploaded. These include Background options, Race options, rules for Firearms, and an entire Witch-Hunter class, among other options as well. I have two submission geared towards the Out of the Abyss campaign, and one recent submission based on the new Storm King's Thunder campaign. Please check out my other submissions located here:

And as always, any support or feedback is greatly appreciated.

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.
