The Vessel (Class)



What if the soul of an aboleth or a beholder got trapped inside you? The Vessel is a half-caster class that answers this very question. When you become a Vessel, your body is now host to the soul of a powerful entity that is slowly corrupting it. Featuring a brand-new spellcasting method, Corrupt Spellcasting, where prepared spells can only be cast once, then they become corrupted and cannot be cast again until this corruption is removed through a short or long rest. When all your spells become corrupted, your own soul begins to fade, and you score critical hits more often as this bestial nature emerges, but hostile creatures can do the same to you! Also, gain powers based on your chosen subclass (which is dictated by the type of creature locked inside you) that you can use indefinitely, as long as you have the charges! As you gain levels, you start to become more and more like a 5E monster – you gain legendary resistances, legendary actions, and even a Mythic trait. Will you master the darkness within?


The Vessel. A half caster class with a brand new method of spellcasting.

All its subclasses grant specific rechargeable powers, unique spells to prepare and a mythic trait. Featuring:

  • Brand new Half-Caster class
  • New spellcasting method
  • Five subclasses (the Aboleth Soul, the Beholder Soul, the Bulette Soul, the Mimic Soul, and the Mind Flayer Soul)

    • Bulette Soul. Your defenses are stronger and you become a battlefield meteor!
    • Mimic Soul. Turn into every day objects and surprise opponents with incredible stealth abilities!
    • Mind Flayer Soul. Eat brains to gain memories and launch psychic bursts of energy into your foes.

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.
