Primordial in Profile – Xil, The Swarm of Horrors

Hello, everyone! For today’s article, I’m introducing the final Primordial Profile for a while – Xil, the Swarm of Horrors.

Prestigious Heroes – The Unstoppable Martyr

Hello, everyone! I apologize again for another unusual week for updates – it’s been a little difficult to find the time to sit down and get work done on my list of planned articles with course assignments piling up on me! To make up for it, today I’m releasing an article I was originally planning to remain exclusive to a future project. Backers on Patreon at the Playtester level may recognize this Prestige Class from the Playtest articles for the past two months. And of course, Playtesters on Patreon can look forward to an all-new article at the start of this coming month!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the concept, a Prestige Class is a form of advanced specialization for a character when they meet certain requirements. In order to become a member of a Prestige Class, a character takes levels in that class in the same way as they would to multiclass. However, a character cannot start in a Prestige Class, and cannot multiclass into multiple Prestige Classes.

The Unstoppable Martyr is a Prestige Class who turns in their long-term survivability for short-term momentum in the form of special attacks and maneuvers. At a glance, the ideal candidate for the Martyr is a Paladin, but a wide range of characters can make great use of its features, such as the Ranger, certain Clerics, certain Bards, and even the Circle of the Heavens Druid from July’s article.

Hello, everyone! First I must apologize for the late article today – I’ve had a miserable cold for the past week, which has thrown my update schedule even further out of whack. Thankfully this update isn’t as late as the articles following my trip last month, so I hope to get my regular Monday/Friday schedule going next week. To start off your weekend, here’s a new subclass for the Bard, the College of Ruin.
