Chameleon Classes: 21 Ways to Reskin 5e Classes


As the wizard stared down the witch at the end of the road, it occurred to her how many similarities linked them. In the wizard’s arms, a leather-bound spellbook stuffed with years of notes and research on channeling the arcane; in the witch’s, a grimoire full of alchemy and instructions on harnessing the ever-changing nature of the world. In the wizard’s hands, a philosopher’s stone, rich with transmutative energy; in the witch’s, a vial of concentrated magical brew, empowering the imbiber with a single drop.

They were equal, yet different: two separate expressions of the same skills. Though fate had brought them to opposite ends of the crossroads, it wasn’t hard to imagine a life where one might have walked the path of the other.

CHAMELEON CLASSES introduces twenty-one skins for the base classes of fifth edition, fundamentally changing the lore and flavor of a class while leaving the mechanics intact.

What is a Skin? A skin is a set of descriptions, lore, and ideas that change the surface level of a class without altering any of its features. Reskinning a class is sometimes referred to as refluffing, changing the “fluff” without affecting the “crunch.” In a figurative sense, putting a skin on a class is like putting a fresh coat of paint on a door: it doesn’t change the door’s function in any way, but it does change the way you see and feel about it.

Why Reskin? Three easy benefits: you don't step on the niche of the existing classes, you can ensure that the class is balanced, and you can take your character into the Adventurers League without any changes!

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.
