ADVANCED CLASSES: MULTICLASSING

STREAMLINED
A Multiclass Reflavoring for New and Returning Players of 5th Edition
Table Of Contents Introduction

Advanced Classes: Multiclassing Streamlined aims to
3: Classes: Crusader reflavor existing possible and legal multiclasses for Dungeons
8: Classes: Duelist and Dragons 5th Edition in order to create fresh and
interesting experiences for both new and returning players.
13: Classes: Aspect of Storm
18: Credits & Version History New Experiences
These multiclasses are reflavored and treated as classes of
their own. For instance, rather than your character being
treated as just a Paladin with a few levels in Barbarian,
they're a Crusader; a passionate and vindictive holy warrior.
Optimization
At the same time, these multiclasses aren't necessarily the
most optimized builds available; they aim for more flavorful
and interesting character builds with the most comfortable
level-to-progression curve possible.
New Players
For new players, these classes allow for the experience of
multiclassing to better create the character in their
imagination, without having to wrestle with the multiclassing
rules so early in their D&D career.
Returning Players
For returning players, these classes are still more
complicated to play than a standard class, and should keep
these players interested with new flavor and a more
complicated playstyle.
Roleplay
These classes, having new flavor, allow for new and
interesting roleplay opportunities, as well as allowing them to
pbe played easier than regular multiclassing. For example;
rather than having to justify a Paladin taking 3 levels of
Barbarian, the player character is more simply a Crusader,
and these Barbarian abilities are simply a part of their class
progression.

Fierce Divine Warriors
In the Forgotten Realms, Paladins and Clerics are warriors
and adventurers that have been granted divine power from a
diety, through which they may act out such diety's will. A
Paladin is chosen due to their innate representation of the
diety's values within their character, whilst a Cleric is granted
divine power through years of study, devotion and worship.
Crusaders, however, are initially not so fortunate.
Crusaders take up arms of their own accord, either in the
name of a diety, or of their own passion to rid the world of
some threat, entity or evil. They do so with nothing but their
own ability, and a burning passion driving them forward.
Through this trial of devotion, a Crusader's efforts may
eventually be recognised by a deity; at which point they will
be granted powers not unlike those of their Paladin
bretheren. Crusaders most often find themselves to become
agents of dieties of the chaotic good alignment, though are
able to become agents of dieties of any alignment.
A Crusader is marginally less magically inclined than a
Paladin, having been granted their divine abilities later in
their careers. However, their more than make up for this with
their superior martial prowess, fueled by their self-starting
passion to act against their enemies directly.

Duelist
Rogue (Swashbuckler) / Fighter (B. Master)
Refinement and Finesse
Fighters are very flexible combatants; while they lack in
social or perhaps magical ability, they more than make up for
it through the wide variety of combat styles and equipment at
their disposal. While initially a martial generalist, fighters are
often a pillar of the standard adventuring party.
Duelists separate themselves from other martial
professions through specialisation in fencing and one-on-one
close quarters combat. In the process, the Duelist sacrifices
some weapon and fighting style variety in order to truly excel
at their niche.
In the process of this specialisation, the Duelist gains
boons of great value; enhanced fencing capabilities, tactical
prowess and advanced martial techniques to name but a few.
Duelists may find themselves to be of any alignment, and do
not naturally veer towards any particular morality or ethics.
The Duelist is immensely optimal at close-quarters combat
with a single one-handed weapon such as a rapier or
shortsword. They also sport natural tactical abilities and
heightened defenses. However, as a result, capabilities with
other weapon types suffer.

Aspect of Storm
Cleric (Tempest) / Sorcerer (Storm)
Freedom of Destruction
Sorcerers are powerful spellcasters with the unique ability to
manipulate the magic that they cast to an extent far deeper
than any of the other spellcasting professions. They lack
many abilities that would allow them to play a supporting role
in an adventuring party's victory, however, often taking a
combat heavy approach to problem solving.
An Aspect of Storm, favored by a diety, may overcome
these limitations through access to divine gifts and a variety
of spellcasting options. However, these gifts come at a cost; as
the combat prowess of an Aspect of Storm is held back whilst
they recieve these gifts at the start of their career.
An Aspect of storm gains magical gifts from their diety;
techniques and magic to counter, heal and disable others,
amongst others. An Aspect of Storm has been chosen by a
diety, most often one representing weather, tempest or
change, and will often share a similar alignment to such a
diety.
The Aspect of Storm has a limited array of support and
defense magics and options, at the cost of delaying the
aquisition of new offensive and powerful magics.
