Witcher (5e Class)

Witcher (5e Class)

Suggested Price $1.00

Mutants. Vile, ill-begotten offspring of devils and sorcereresses. Forgotten bastards and unwanted children. To the common folk, this is what comprises a witcher. But, in the very same breath that they are cursed in, the witcher is also pleaded with, for he is one thing more than all others:

He is a monster hunter.

Witchers are a specially trained group of warriors, dedicated to hunting down all that goes bump in the night, killing it, and then selling its head for coin. They are mercenaries, selling their sword to whoever can afford it, and they are problem solvers, correcting issues that only they are uniquely certified to resolve. They are trackers, hunters, and tamers of all that is wild.

But they may not always be heroes.

I initially started making this class in the early days of D&D 5e, but got ditracted by life and never completed it. After watching The Witcher on Netflix, I was inspired to come back and finish it.

I haven't been able to playtest this, but I did as much research as I could think to do so that it's balanced when comparing to what other classes can do at similar levels.

Questions, comments, suggestions, snarky remarks are welcome.

Hi, just purchased your Witcher class build and reading it over there are some unfinished bits in the Oil Recipes table. Example: "Hybrid - Affects montrosities" and then there is no effect given for monstrosities. Several of them are this way.

While it would be nice for every oil to have a rider effect, there were quite a few I couldn't quite find a universal enough trait that the type shared to build one around, or what I could think of was possibly too powerful. Regardless of the rider effect, all oils will still add 1d4 damage to the affected type.

I'm open to suggestions for riders on the ones that don't have any, though.

Nevermind, I see that the oils do a standard additional 1d4 bonus damage and then some of them have additional effects in the table. I might suggest adding that statement in the oils section to avoid confusion.

I have a PC doing a wicther type character right now and I may switch him to this more game-faithful build. I will let you know what comes out of playtesting.

Yes, please, that would be amazing.

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.
