Beast Master Reborn

Suggested Price $1.00

With Eberron: Rising from the Last War came an official artificer class. One of its subclasses has a Steel Defender as a class feature which has a similar theme as the Beast Master----a loyal companion that fights side by side with the character.

As the artificer is a newer class and the mechanics of the Steel Defender appear to be more polished, this is a document that explains how to apply these mechanics to the Ranger Beast Master Archetype in the Player's Handbook.

This product has:

  • An alternate set of rules for the Beast Master archetype, using the artificer's Battlesmith as the base
  • An optional rules for more known spells to match newer ranger archetypes like those of Xanathar's Guide to Everything
  • 5 new spells that works only with beast companions
  • 11 stat blocks of possible beast companions, altered with the rules
  • All of these stat blocks are also included in an extra .pdf for printing. There are also 6 additional stat blocks with alterations of certain beasts for ease of play

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.
