Changelog 2019

Versioning

I use Semantic Versioning which has 3 numbers separated by a dot: Major.Minor.Patch

Major

A major change is an incompatible change that requires some realignment. Examples include:

  • removing an archetype, class, species, or theme
  • moving an archetype from one class to another
  • majorly reworking an archetype, class, species, or theme

Minor

A minor change is a change that should take minimal realignment. Examples include:

  • adding a new archetype, class, subclass, species, concoction, feat, maneuver, spell, or theme
  • changing an archetype, class, subclass, species, concoction, feat, maneuver, spell, or theme

Patch

A patch change is generally a bug fix. Examples include wording adjustments or correcting a feature that does not work as intended.

August 22 2019

Minor

  • Classes
    • Quickened Cantrips allowing two cantrips to be cast is removed from caster classes. I recalculated average cantrip damage and weighed tested numbers if a caster used 100% of its mana on damage. If it did so then its damage was well above many martials. So the current DPR being below martials when they don’t use all their mana on damage is a good balance to their burst damage and their utility.
    • Alchemist

    • Naturalist

10.0.0

February 2 2019

Major

  • Classes
    • Warrior class absorbs the Barbarian and Fighter classes and all of their subclasses. The Bloodrager archetype was abandoned as its flavor and implementation were lacking. The overall impact is technically a breaking change, but should be very minimal even for existing Barbarians and Fighters as all of their options (besides Bloodrager) exist in the Warrior.
      • The Warrior has the Battlemaster, Berserker, and Dervish Archetypes
      • Scout and Swashbuckler subclassed added

Minor

  • 2d10 has been abandoned in favor of 1d20. See #314 for reasons why
  • Equipment
    • Heavy Scimitar added
    • Chain mail, scale mail, and plate now reduce damage by 1
    • Potions of Stamina and Mana provide half as much value (average 1.5). Higher level potions provide 1d4 less at each tier. So normal is 1d4/2, greater is 1d4, superior is 2d4, supreme is 3d4.
  • Maneuvers
    • Open Hand
      • Disarm added to Open Hand
  • Feats
    • Heavy Armor Master now reduces damage by 3 instead of 2

Patch

      • Scout Sudden Strike is now a bonus action as it is by RAW and it no longer lets you sneak attack again (far too much damage)
  • Maneuvers
    • Warfare
      • Disarm’s damage is reduced a bit and added details about how to interact with the disarmed weapon.
  • Spells
    • Planes
      • Plane Shift removes the banishment style wording as Banishment is a more balanced version

Minor

  • Combat
    • Called Shot (disadvantage for prof x2 to damage) removed now that we have maneuvers

    • Passive Perception is calculated now

9.5.0

January 19 2019

Minor

  • Classes
    • Blood Hunter
      • Absorbed into the Sorcerer class as an archetype. There was far too much crossover between the two classes in that both progressively became more and more like the creature. Blood Hunters ingest a concoction to get the bloodline so this combination seems to work really well.
    • Sorcerer
      • Blood Hunter archetype added
      • Resilience replaces the Defense boosts of subclasses

9.0.2

January 7 2019

Patch

  • Classes
    • Naturalist
      • Wild Shape calculations were wrong. The damage now starts at d6 and scales to d8 at 5th level. The additional Wisdom damage at 11th level has been removed for everyone but the Druid.
    • Sorcerer

  • Spells
    • Acid
      • Corrosive Touch now does less damage, but half as much next round

9.0.1

January 6 2019

Patch

  • Classes
    • Quickened Cantrips updated to 5th level and beyond

9.0.0

January 5 2019

Major

  • Classes
    • Advancements to learn a new theme no longer give cantrips, but an advancement to learn 2 cantrips was added
    • Psionicist revamped and no longer in the draft state
  • Maneuvers and Spells are no longer limited by bonus action casting rules. The limitation is replaced with the following: “If you cast a spell or use a maneuver, the energy limit of any other spell you cast or maneuver you use this turn is 2 less than the normal limit.”. This allows for full casters of 5th level or higher and half casters of 9th level or higher to potentially use bonus action maneuvers/spells on the same turn as a normal action maneuver/spell, but at a much lower power level.
  • Skills
    • Added Occult and Psionics. Arcane, Divinity, Occult, Primal, and Psionics are now used to identify spells from power sources. #168: Refine Skills
    • Brawn absorbed into Athletics
    • Sleight of Hand absorbed into Stealth and Engineering
    • Craft and Trade reverted back to the Tools name
    • Divinity defaults to Wisdom
  • Spell Strikes have been replaced with abilities at 5th level to forgo an attack to cast a spell. The overall damage is nearly the same. RAW 5e does something very similar where you can make one attack after casting a spell, but this method allows TWF and other unique options not to fall off. This trade-off where a gish has to decide whether to hit with a weapon or cast a spell is an acceptable choice starts out comparing ~20 damage for a 2 mana spell vs <10 damage for a weapon attack.
    • All maneuvers and bonus action spells have been rebalanced.
  • Spells
    • Introduced the concept of power sources: a collection of themes which represent that source. There are 5 power sources (Arcane, Divine, Occult, Primal, and Psionic) which each contain 5–11 themes. A character can only pick themes from their power source given by their class with exceptions for subclasses and feats.
      • Acolyte has the Divine Power Source
      • Barbarian Bloodrager has the Primal power source
      • Mage has the Arcane power source
      • Minstrel can choose between the Arcane, Occult, or Psionic power source
      • Monk can choose 1 theme from the Divine or Psionic power source + 1 potential theme from the subclass.
      • Naturalist has the Primal power source
      • Occultist has the Occult power source
      • Psionicist has the Psionic power source
      • Rogue Spell Thief has the Arcane or Occult power source
      • Sorcerer determines its power source from its Sorcerous Origin with each power source covered by 1 or more subclass.
    • Removed the limit of 1 + proficiency bonus on themes. Power sources effectively limits characters to ~5–11 themes with the exception of subclasses and feats. 11 isn’t a problem as many of the Primal themes are quite similar, just a different element. Arcane has 8 themes, but even 8 themes + 1 from subclass + 1–2 from feats is not going to break anything as it’ll still. The limit remains for the Alchemist as it does not use the power source system (perhaps it should, but hard to make it work)
    • Charm Split to Fear
    • Protection theme removed
      • Blade Ward moved to Creation
      • Resistance and Sanctuary moved to Divine
      • Alarm, Glyph of Warding, and Invulnerability moved to Force
