Pact of the Gambler


This homebrew subclass was created in 2018 and was being tested in a homebrew campaign until its premature ending in 2019. Unsatisfied with it I decided to continue play-testing and rebalancing. Through many player and monster deaths I reached this version of Pact of the Gambler. Don’t forget for this subclass you will need a complete 54 card deck with the jokers still in. I hope you enjoy this subclass and please leave any feedback and reviews as I will continue to update as necessary. Lastly, I would like to say thank you for viewing this and downloading, it is very much appreciated.

I want to say thank you to atanacossin and ttv/goosievg for their assistance with this project, from formatting to drafts and everything in between.

The Gambler is an elusive, shadowy figure that goes by many names. Reveling in chance, greed, and risk, the allure of the next high stake deal is what drives their power. Numbers and probabilities will dictate other's decisions but not yours. Your indifference to this made you the perfect candidate to pass on the powers needed to acquire your greatest dreams. Being picked by The Gambler means you are unwittingly put through trials with minimal chances of success. They want to see if you are capable of living through the lows required to risk everything on a deal that can either win it all back or cost you even more. Appearing at your greatest moments to make them even sweeter or your darkest time to lend a hand, all they ask for is a simple game. The Gambler is always in ear shot when there is an opportunity for a game of chance and gambling.

Hi Brandon, quick question. How many additional gambits do you learn? Is it two each time, or one?

I apologize for the confusion, the intention was for you to learn one each time, But feel free to talk to your DM if you feel 2 each time fits better for your game.

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.
