Gunlock (D&D 5e)

By player request, inspired by the Gungeon final boss – The Lich.  GUNLOCK  Gunesis 1:1 In the beginning, the Gungeon was formless and void, and bullets moved over the face of the deep.

Hedge Wizard/Wise Woman

I quite liked the idea of component based magic from sorcery is a sword without a hilt. Here is a 5e version specifically built as a self-taught wizard type. This only works if you use slot based encumbrance – which I do.  Rise Up Comus is worth a read and I don’t do it justice […]
