Commander 1.7: Martial Support Class

Suggested Price $0.99

"There is no single trait that defines a good commander; only the ability to effectively communicate their will. Whatever their methods may entail, brutality is often just as effective as subtlety in the correct hands."

This is a class expansion for Dungeons and Dragons: 5th Edition. No other supliments or expansions are required for effective play. Includes 16 pages in PDF format containing:

  • 1 class (Commander)
  • 6 class archetypes (Centurion, Chaplain, Crusader, Sea Captain, Tactician, and Slaver)
  • 45 new abilities and features
  • 54 unique commands
Any and all feedback you have to offer is greatly appreciated. This is an ongoing project and improvements are always being made to make this class the best in can be. Thank you again for all your support.
Update 1.6.1: Includes a number of balancing changes to both class and archetype abilities based on player feedback. This includes tweaks to both Chaplain and Sea Captain progression, as well as further balancing for the Slaver archetype. Tactician has recieved a further buff in the form of Greater Acumen, cementing them as a high skill, pure support role.
Update 1.6.2: A number of small balance fixes. Commands have been expanded, with brand new additions to Chaplain, Sea Captain, Slaver, and Tactiacian. Overall balancing has also been done to many of the commands from all archetypes. Slaver has been reverted to be more similar to it's previous state due to player feedback.
Update 1.6.3: Additional balance changes to abilities and commands, including a new 17th level class feature to make high level play easier to run. Also improved overall grammar and sentence structure.
Update 1.6.4: THE CRUSADER BUFF - “Ambit of Authority” now uses Charisma to determine the amount of available uses for the feature, rather than Intelligence. The damage bonus and reduction now only affects weapon damage. Also gained a new 5th level ability called “Strike of the Righteous”. This will allow the crusader to use their actions more effectively, increasing their overall damage output. “Ferocity and Fortitude” have been merged into one table to conserve space. The rate of progression has also been altered to increase the rate of early progression. Additionally, gained proficiency with vehicles (land).
Update 1.7.0: Doctrine feature moved from 10th level to 11th level. "Chain of Command" has been removed and replaced with an additional ASI. Centurion has had a slight rework of "Strength of Character", "Cleaving Blows", and "Praetorian". Chaplain has recived a rework to all it's features - most notibly "Perform Miracle". Crusader's "Ambit of Authority" affects all attacks again. Slaver's "Bone Whip" damage increased from 1d8 to 2d4. Tactician recieved the "Perfect Form" feature.

I noticed you updated to 1.7, but there is no changelog. What changed?

Ad Impetus is clearly superior to Ad Cuneum. Why would anyone choose Ad Cuneum over Ad Impetus?

That's actually a really good point. I'll definately be sure to fix this issue in an update, but thank you so much for bringing it to my attention.

Sorry to everyone who has been purchasing the PDF only to find that the files aren't visible. The website has having some issues with uploads for me, but everything should be resolved again. If anyone has any issues with the download, or if the file disappears again, please let me know so I can fix it as soon as possible. Thank you~

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.
