Postby Havard » Mon Jul 17, 2017 1:19 pm

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.

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.)
