We've all played with them before - the people who want to do nothing but kill things and take their stuff, and then blow it all on hookers and booze. They're the worst, right?

Well, now there's a class for them.

The Murder-Hobo is a rough-and-tumble homebrew player class for D&D 5e. It's a class that specializes in being a jerk, basically, one that bullies people smaller than it, searches every possible body for loot, and is constantly in trouble with the law.

In addition to the main Murder-Hobo class features, there are also five sub-classes to choose from, each with their own aggravating flavor and playstyle:

  • The Dipsomaniac - the drunk, one that only gets tougher as they drink more.
  • The Kleptomaniac - the sticky-fingered thief, always out for gold.
  • The Nymphomaniac - the paramour, ever charming and alluring.
  • The Pyschomaniac - the unrepentant murderer, never satisfied.
  • The Pyromaniac - the arsonist, who just wants to set the world ablaze.

This class is, frankly, a joke that got taken a little bit too far, but it's pretty darn enjoyable to play as, assuming the rest of the party is on board with it. Good luck, have fun, and be nice to whichever poor soul has to DM for you.

Changelog 10/16/2018

Fixed formatting issue with Ability Score Improvement running off of page 3 (actually fixed now!).

Added Fighting Style to the class table at level 2.

Corrected Pyromaniac's spells to be conjuration and evocation, instead of enchantment and illusion.

Fixed the bag-of-rats issue with Psychomaniac's Bloodlust and Butcher features by requiring the enemy to be at least CR 1/8, or be a humanoid. Slight nerf, sorry psychos.

Just updated the file to fix a number of issues. You can view it in the changelog either in the description of this product, or in the updated PDF.

I downloaded today and the ability score improvement is still off of the page while the changelog notes it as fixed.

Thanks for letting me know - the ASI text now actually fits on page 3. Not quite sure what was wrong with, I had to play with the text a bit to make it work with Homebrewery, but it's actually fixed now.

Does Just Another Monster apply if an enemy speaks a language I can understand in addition to one I don't? Does a Murder-Hobo have to hear their enemy speak that language?

Lol love the idea, feel like it was a missed opportunity to not make it a Warlock subclass with a homebrew Sheogorath as patron. If there was ever a patron deity for murder hoboing, it would be sheogorath from Elder Scrolls :P

The Class Advancement list shows only Bullying Strike at 2nd level, but then the actual descriptions show Fighting Style(from the Fighter Class) - should this be there?

Should pyromaniacs initial spells be from Evocation/Conjugation schools? Currently says Illusion or Enchantment, which I suspect is a copy-paste error from nymphomaniac.

Yes! Conjuration and Evocation are the intended schools. Sorry, I will get that corrected.

... but.... does he have a shotgun as a basic choice of equipment? (or a thundercannon i guess?) because... i can't play an hobo without a shotgun. it would be wrong.

Hiya, just want to say there's more than just the ASI that's cut off. A subclass feature is also in the margin.

Seconded on "please confirm the ASI text" - is it just the standard ASI text, same as everyone else has in the PHB, or is it different in some way?

Yes! Sorry, I’ve had a busy weekend. The feature is identical to other classes - at levels 4, 8, 12, 16, and 19, you can increase one ability score by 2 or two ability scores by 1. If your table uses feats, that’s when you can pick them up.

Format
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.
