The Warlord, a 5e Class


You may recognize the name, but this version of the Warlord is entirely itself. Featuring 50 "martial spells", the warlord has a unique position between fighter and a cleric or bard, able to support, buff, and change battles with spell-like abilities that don't require multiclassing. You even have the ability to alter your gear, imbuing armor, shields, or weapons with unique properties to enhance your combat prowess.

The warlord provides four Colleges:
College of Divinity. Wield divine armaments, control or destroy undead, call down divine destruction!
College of the Dragon. A dragon themed Warlord. You get a wyvern pet and it has a breath weapon.
College of Royalty. Get paid to level up! Be Zhuge Liang. Seriously, you blow things up with how smart you are.
College of the Spellblade. Eldritch Knight, with strategies! This combo might actually be too broken, for real.

Like the Warlord? Try the classes below as well! Each provides a similiar level of customization and unique playstyle:

  • 1.5 Release: Complete PDF reformat, including typo/spelling fixes. New artwork (and cover!), armament rebalance, and strategy clarification/rework. Much easier to use additional SP now.

Love this class, but if one strives for perfection: MORE WAR COLLEGES

Hah. I'm working on a second bundle of classes, and once I'm done with those I'll go through and add a few more subs to this and the others currently out. The Warlord specifically will get three additions: College of the Swordsaint, Engineer, and Juggernaut.

Want to build a bad XXX without being a more one-dimensional fighter? The warlord has so many interesting ways to add spell-like effects without having to split experience between fighter and caster. Rather than weaving in spells, this class uses pools to fund martial strategies and abilities that buff others or allow maneuvers you could normally only accomplish with feats. It's like giving a champion fighter better abilities, adding in artificer-like buffs to armaments (armor, shields, and weapons), and finishing it off with subclasses that are better version of things like the drake warden ranger or a abilities reserved for a paladin. Want to be melee and in the fray? How about strategies designed to give you access to up close and personal damage / control? Want a range character? Lean into the ranged abilities and show the ranger/rogue in your party there's a new game in town. Stupid. Fun. Class.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
