Master of None is the fastest way to meaningful multiclassing. If you've ever wanted to have roleplaying and narrative reasons for multiclassing, we've got you covered. We also provide 4 new ways of multiclassing, when the traditional way just doesn't do it for you.

This product includes:

- A history of multiclassing in D&D

- A randomized 1d6 table for each of the 12 original classes to help decide how your character chose that class!

- Unique multiclass, roleplaying features for each combination of the 12 original classes.

- A "Character Quiz" to decide how your character should multiclass based on their actions.

- Rules for balancing traditional Gestalt characters, and new variations on Gestalt.

- A feature swapping feature, where you can switch one class feature for another without giving up valuable capstone abilities.

- A completely modular, point buy system of class building. Want to build a new feature from each of the 12 classes each time you level? Now you can!

Sorry to say this, but there's no Fighter/Ranger section. Did the editor's forget that?

Well, that's an embarrassing oversight that we missed at multiple levels in the production chain. I'll add that to the list of updates. I'm going to try to get an updated version out soon as long as the team stays healthy enough to work on it.

That's really up to DMsguild as a publisher. Currently the process is "invite only", so if they invite us to make a POD, we will gladly figure that out.

In the Modular Section, under Full Spellcasting Sorcerous Origin I, it says that you can buy the feature multiple times gaining the benefits of a different tradition each time. It doesn't have a price set for the Origin, is it 0, 10 or 60? Also should it say different tradition or different origin?

It costs 60 FP, and you're right it should say "origin" rather than "tradition".

So really enjoying what I've read and otherwise skimmed through thusfar. I was wondering if there was a general design philosophy for point values described in the document? I was thinking of taking a crack at Artificer myself as well as some homebrew content I've purchased on the DMs Guild, and a bit of guidance could help!

Noah Grand did most of the calculations for that, and ran it with his gaming group, I think. They basically tweaked what I already had, but the general design philosophy, I think would boil down to the following:

1) Most classes should end with 0 points left if they have a balanced spread of abilities across all levels.
2) More powerful abilities cost more (obvious, I know).
3) Abilities that could be abused by multiclassing should have two different ability costs.
4) Compare the cost with the cost of similar features of different classes.

That's about the best I can tell you. It was definitely the most difficult part of the product to balance. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I've actually got most of the Artificer done! The extra attunement is powerful, as said in other comments, but using it in context of the Artificer, I decided to base the power on its available items as a constant? Otherwise the feature itself is incredibly DM dependent in both the amount of items given and their strength.

Just wanted to let you know some stuff me and my friends noticed. At level 19, you refer to the fifth feat feature as "Feat IV" instead of "Feat V", and at level 16, you wrote "ASI" instead of "Ability Score Increase."

Hey, quick question. You've got a number of features that increase in cost based on other features. Does this happen retroactively? For example, if a paladin later in the game ends up wanting some Cleric stuff and they pick up Full Spellcasting 1, do they have to pay an extra 60 for Divine Smite at that point even if they picked it up several levels ago? I guess a similar question for someone like a Monk or Barbarian with increased move speed that alter game picks up Cunning Action, does that jack up the prices of features already selected?

Good Question. We never discussed that situation, but I'd say once you purchase a feature, you don't have to pay extra for it in the future if you get an ability that would increase its cost.

You only have to pay for a feature once, unless you're buying the feature again for *additional* benefit.

Good to know, thanks! Sorry to bother again, but Full Spellcasty 7 doesn't have the caveat that it's 50 for non-origin compared to the 60. Is this intentional?
Customer avatar
Ryan L March 25, 2020 11:54 am UTC
CREATOR
No Problem. I looked back in my notes. That *is* intentional. I'm assuming the designer of that system had their reasons for increasing the cost by 10 at that level.

Is there a particular reason why wizard comes before warlock for each multiclass pairing when every other class is listed alphabetically?

Heh, because apparently both our writers, editors, and layout specialist missed that. Such mistakes happen sometimes. Thanks for letting us know, and we'll fix it on our next update :)

This is a great product, especially the Modular Class Building section. I appreciate the tremendous amount of work it must have taken to balance all of that.

A couple of questions:

1) Your sample PDF includes the entire document (watermarked). Was that intentional? If so, well then that's pretty awesome. But you all deserve to get paid for this fantastic work, and I hope that doesn't cut down how much you make on this.

2) For the Eldritch Invocations modular feature, it currently does not list any explicit prereqs. I read that as neither Pact Casting nor a Patron are required in order to take Eldritch Invocations (albeit limited to only the invocations that do not specify a level or a Pact). Is that intended, or should there be a warlockish prereq to the Eldritch Invocations ability itself? (e.g. at-will mage-armor sounds pretty awesome for a DEX-based martial build that otherwise has no ties to a patron).

Again, I love the work you've done on this. Thanks!

Thank you :) The full preview is intentional--a good faith effort to make sure people are happy with their purchase.

Good catch on the Eldritch Invocations. Currently the text includes "You must have the prerequisites for any invocation, including the required pact, though the level requirements refer to your total level for the purposes of this feature." Which implicitly implies "Pact Casting", but it would *definitely* be more clear if stated like the other pre-requisites.

We'll add that in on our next update :)

Congrats to everyone involved in this product, it's a triumph.

Question: are there any plans to release an expansion for the Artificer in the future?
Customer avatar
Ryan L February 25, 2020 7:16 pm UTC
CREATOR
Personally, I would like to. It presented some balance issues, especially in the Point Buy system (extra attunement is powerful). If we were the ones to do it, we would add it in free of charge.

yes indeed! Thank you. That was intentional on my part. We're trusting the community and their support of us to allow a full preview, especially since it's not particularly easy to use in that form :)

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.
