House Vadalis Griffonmaster

Suggested Price $1.00

The House Vadalis Griffonmaster is a variant of the beastmaster ranger presented in the PHB.  It presents a modified version of the Beastmasters level 3 class feature to help balance the fact that your beast companion is a CR2 griffon, is large, and can serve as a flying mount.

In my playtesting of this build, I have determined that some additional restrictions were required, and that about halfway through tier 2 play the advantages of having a CR2 companion are significantly diminished compared to other options that exist.  This is especially true after the modifications.

This pdf includes the modified class feature "Griffonmaster's Bond" and the additional restrictions being a griffonmaster puts on the ranger.  It includes a ritual for resurrecting fallen beast companions that can be used by any ranger, but is essential to one of the limitations of the Griffonmaster.  Additionally it includes some DM guidance for continuity of immersion, and some mechanical ways to balance the early power this option provides without just throwing more enemies at ranger.

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.
