Circle of the Night Druid

Circle of the Night Druid

Suggested Price $0.50

Most druids spend their waking hours tending to the wild. Using healing magic to maintain balance and harmony among nature. 

Some, however, make their home where this balance has been shifted. Where urban sprawl dumps pollutants into their rivers, where greedy industrialists needlessly chop down the trees of the forest, and where animals are needlessly slaughtered for sport this is where druids of the Circle of the Night exact nature's vengeance.

This archetype focuses on creating a viable stealth archetype for the druid class. By creating their own darkness, ensuring their own strikes to reap life essense from enemies, and through limited teleportation this archetype gives a reason to fear the dark.

This archetype has not had playtesting as such any feedback is extremely helpful! I hope you enjoy!

Hey there Mr. Compton,
I haven't got to playtest this either, but I bought your subclass to see what others have done in homebrewing druid subclasses, and also because I like to make subclasses myself and understand how helpful feedback can be. So I thought I would offer some insight.

First of all, the easy stuff. Your wording is still not exactly standard by the rulebooks. Your changelog says you've updated it, but you may want to try again. This can be tricky to do properly, so what I do is find similar effects to what I'm trying to achieve that have already been written (ie: how is duration worded in a spell description) and model after that.
Secondly, I really like how you've turned wild shape into something more. Not only does it allow for wildshaping, but it can also fuel your aura of darkness. The Archdruid level 20 capstone may be a little broken with that variant... but it's kind of broken as written so we can probably let that slide.
Thirdly, copyright... I don't...See more

Thank you for such constructive feedback! I have been away from the homebrewing community for a while but rest assured I am in the process of editing the Circle of the Night Druid even further to fit more in line with the rules of the books. Thank you though for the kind words about aura of darkness, I was pretty proud of it myself haha.

I will also take a look at One with the Night and Cull the Herd on your recommendation. All in all this was a very well thought out and constructive review and I'd be more than happy to take a look at your stuff :)

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.
