I have again decided to include the Unearthed Arcana classes and Archetypes even though they are not official. The reason is mainly because it is useful having the links collected.

We can also talk about 3PP classes, but maybe those are better suited for a separate thread? :)

Have I missed any? :)

Thanks for compiling this, Havard! I have all the UA material, but not the SCAG, so it's helpful to know what's in that.

No problem! I really wanted to get an overview for myself. Do you think I have missed any UA material? Are the duplicate classes from differnet documents changed or identical copies?

I know that there were multiple iterations of several subclasses, but I won't be able to cite details until I get back from vacation next week and can check my copies and notes.

You missed out the Nature cleric domain (which is distinct from Life).

Interesting. I had decided not to get this book since I already own the 3E version, but looks like I might have to reconsider... :)

I never picked up the 3e version, as it was huge and pricey, and I like doing my own world-building. But when I heard how much the 5e update was expanding the options for cleric domains, paladins oaths, and other subclasses, I decided I needed to back it. I'm almost done reading it, and it's a lovely book. (I'll be posting a blog about using it with Freeport in another week or so.)

Do you have plans to include Xanathar's stuff? If you need a list or something, just ask.
