Gastronome Class


Even cooks go on adventures sometimes! 

A chef must forge their culinary path, discovering new cuisine and techniques along with finding rare ingredients. Most importantly, practice makes perfect, and what better test subjects than your friends around a campfire. 

The Gastronome is a complete class for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. The class was inspired by notable chef celebrities, with subclasses that resemble their real-life counterparts. The Gastronome integrates unique flavors that possess potent benefits when eaten. By harnessing this knowledge, the Gastronome can impart these boons to allies both in battle and after a long day of adventuring. 

Inside You Will Find: 

  • Gastronome class description
  • Three unique Culinary Paths
    • Brigade Chef: A chef that specializes in enduring long days of being in the kitchen and indomitable courage. 
    • Culinary Maestro: A chef that leads their kitchen staff (and adventuring party) while possessing a sharp tongue to dish out the harshest of criticisms. 
    • Revolutionist: A rebel chef that masters the ability to incorporate hidden flavors and being able to change their prepared flavors when necessary. 
  • Rules for Culinary Duels! Inspired by competitive cooking shows such as Iron Chef, Top Chef, and Chopped. Now you can take your Gastronomes on a chef vs. chef battle to determine whose cuisine reigns supreme. 
Special Thanks to Chef Mike Haracz for collaborating for the inspiration for this class.

This project is dedicated to the late Anthony Bourdain, who passed away during the development of this class. He was an inspiration for me as a culinary nerd, world explorer, and writer. He will be deeply missed.

fun concept! am a bit curious about some rules though

for meal services are they cooked at the start of the day and stored like prepping spells or they cooked on the spot?
and if its the former would their be a limitation to how much chow a person can eat in a day?

A little bit of both, but for mechanical purposes, it's assumed that you have the equivalent of MREs, but you can also have precooked ingredients to assemble quickly to make a decent meal from them. For subclasses such as the Revolutionist, where they can replace Flavors, it's similar to the idea that the Gastronome had the extra ingredients available to alter the meal accordingly. There's no limitation how much food a person can eat in a day (unless your DM wants to impose such a restriction), but the effects from Flavors do not stack.

Hope that answers your question!

indeed it does!

and it also tangentially clears up somthing else cause I thought each individual "meal plan" had its own 1+con mod but its that across all possible meals which makes much more sense

time for Rungar Sporkweaver the Golaith food artisan to shine!

This is fun! Also thank you for the dedication to Anthony Bourdain, that's a wonderful touch.
I'm now playing with the idea of a one shot of all Gastronomes. :)

Aww, thank you! It was a lot of fun to make. I have a lot of Anthony Bourdain's books & was a devoted fan since his first televised appearance, his passing hurt me deeply. I'm also going to be hosting a Gastronome inspired one-shot for some of my friends soon too! I hope you enjoy it!

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.
