View Full Version : D&D 5e/Next Homebrew lookup thread

2019-03-19, 06:00 PM
I'm making this thread as a tool for people to put a brief summary of their homebrews for others to browse. Sometimes, we're looking for that special something or we want some inspiration for our own ideas, so it'd be good to have it all in once place.

I also figure this would be a good place to trade reviews. I review one of yours, and you review one of mine.

I recommend signifying your Homebrew as a Class, Subclass, Spells, or Mechanics, to make it easier for everyone. Please try to keep summaries brief for the benefit of everyone.


Here's a few of mine, to start:


Prestige Options (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578643-MOG-Mechanics-Prestige-Options-(Adapt-existing-classes-to-create-unique-characters)): use different primary attributes for classes, to open up builds, with restrictions to make sure there's no OP multiclassing.
Improved Ability Checks (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578540-MOG-Mechanics-Improved-Ability-Checks-(Fixing-unused-skills-with-player-agency)): People say what they want to do, you tell them what Attribute they have to use, and they tell you what proficiencies can be used for it.
Pain (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578078-MOG-Mechanics-Pain-(Improvised-called-shots-to-the-groin-now-a-sound-strategy!)): Deal less damage to inflict temporary Exhaustion, to add some complexity to martial classes.
Adrenaline Surge (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578061-MOG-Mechanics-Adrenaline-Surge-(Fixing-Short-Rests-bosses-Hit-Die-and-Warlocks)): When bosses hit 50% HP, everyone gets a Short Rest and Exhaustion, and the boss upgrades. "This isn't even my final form!"
Improved Stealth (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578001-MOG-Mechanics-Stealth-(Less-spam-more-ninjas!)): Minor modifications to the stealth system, allowing melee combat and punishing repeated stealth and rewarding longer stealth missions.
Improved Initiative (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?578078-MOG-Mechanics-Pain-(Improvised-called-shots-to-the-groin-now-a-sound-strategy!)): Initiative is rolled at the end of a Short Rest and stays there. That way, tension is maintained before and after combat.


Way of the Savage Heart (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?577152-Monk-Subclass-Way-of-the-Savage-Heart-(Animal-form-Monk)): Monk subclass focused around slowly turning into a beast, and gaining a special attack that changes with your choice of beast, rewards aggression and mobility.

Not mine, but definetly the one I've used the most (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?555697-Houserules-and-homebrew&highlight=Houserule).

Let me see.

My attempt to Convert 3.5 Factotum to 5e (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?581351-Converting-3-5-Factotum-to-5e). With two Subclasses.
Summary - Another take on the Jack of All Trades.
There are two other "Conversions", one in the thread and another in the Homebrew.

Rogue: The Guide (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?582553-Rogue-Subclass-The-Guide)
Summary - an attempt to make a more party-minded Rogue.

I'll check out - and comment on - the other Posts, as I have time.

Edit - 3/23/19 5:25 am PST
I did find the Improved Abilities to be interesting, and it's something that I think I will try in my Games.

Pain might be something I add to my games a little later. Got too many new Players and don't want to confuse/overwhelm them.

+20 min
Adrenaline Surge might have to wait like Pain.

Stealth will need some experimenting, but looks good.
