5th Edition "Classless / Leveless" Point-Buy System


This is a true "Classless / Leveless" system inspired by the works of Spencer "The Sigil" Cooley. Inside you will find each class in the Player's Handbook reworked under this new system. Exp needed to gain "levels" is the same, but level gain itself is removed as each class ability can be purchased whenever a player wants it. This DOES open the field of min/max-ing to a whole new level, so soft hearted DMs beware. 

Completely rewritten from scratch, format errors were fixed along with all the typos I have found. Page numbers and Chapter Indicators were added to the bottom of pages for convenience sake. If there is any problem, please feel free to let me know.

  • 30 June, 2018 - Update. Updated the starting "Genesis Points" quantity from 450gp to 1,000gp. (After numerous playtests and mock-characters, it was determined to be lacking. Core characters start with 2 saving throws, where the same costs 500gp. Hopefully this change makes starting characters feel more fleshed out.) Fixed the typo on page 5, under the Awakened Mind Simple Special Ability. (The stated cost was 10 xp. It was changed to 100 xp as originally intended. Sorry about the mistake.)

Seems well balanced and an intriguing method of playing. Reminds me of some of the old text based MUDD's leveling systems. [...]

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.
