Revised Artificer

Suggested Price $2.00

Within these pages, you will find my version of the revised Artificer. It addresses several issues in the last release. This includes a mechanic that is more reminiscent of the original spell storing item feature, a new mechanic for the ability to create magic items, weapons, and armors on the fly, replacing the Gunsmith with the Wand Expert, and removing the construct features to allow for a new archetype: The Clockwork Engineer. I hope you enjoy this revision as much as I did creating it!

I really like the direction you went here with the Artificer and I think you're onto something. Especially the Clockwork Familiar and Clockwork Guardian options. My only concern is that the overall damage of all 3 subclasses fall short on damage at higher levels due to the separation of the Clockwork Guardian into it's own subclass. Here are some things that stood out right away.

* The Alchemist loses a single target attack option for higher damage. Leaving them at a significant disadvantage in combat vs tougher solo enemies. On top of that, all their damage effects are AOE, meaning they will likely hit themselves at close range. Bring back a single target acid attack for 9d6 at highest level (27 average damage), and make the Acid and Wand/Gun attack an actual spell attack roll (not a saving throw), so the player has an alternative attack option vs creatures with very high saving throws. Plus it's not very fun watching the DM roll the dice to for you to hit all the time.
* By the D&D law...See more

Hi George, I'm really glad you enjoyed my write up! And I love the feedback. I'm gonna reflect on it a bit and see how I might incorporate it, as this is certainly a concept that is constantly evolving.

I think I was being a bit conservative on damage due to the at-will aspect to many of the abilities. But I do agree that the AOE could improve and was already considering increasing it at some point for the Alchemist.

Look out for future updates and definitely keep the feedback coming! ^_^

Hi George. So your feedback got me thinking and I adjusted a number of mechanics, as well as included some new ones. Let me know what you think!

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.
