Daily Punch 8-10-16 Jack the Giant Slayer rogue archetype for DnD 5e

We had a rogue who jumped a candle, so how about a rogue who killed a giant?

 

Jack the Giant Slayer

Most rogues are sneaky fellows who walk the dark paths and hide in the shadows.  You are not the person.  You favor strength over speed . You follow a member of an old court of knights.  Your mentor Jack the Giant Slayer used deception, large axes, and magic items to fell any foe fool enough cross your path.

Strong Hands

The original Jack the Giant Slayer fell a beanstalk with an ax.  You’ve trained to follow in his foot steps.  Starting at 3rd level, you can make sneak attack with non-finesse weapons.  In addition, you can now wield non-light weapons off-hand.  Two-handed weapons must still be wielded two-handed.

Quick Climber

Jack climbed a beanstalk, and you know how to do the same.  You climb at the same rate you  walk on the ground, unless you posses a faster climbing spread already.

In addition, you gain advantage on all Strength(athletics) checks.

Cormoran’s Bane

Jack lied to giants to the point they killed themselves, and starting at 9th level, you gain advantage on a Charisma(Deception) checks.

Gift of the Round Table

Jack beat the devil at his own game, and he was awarded a magic sword, a cap of knowledge, a cloak of invisibility, and the shoes of swiftness.  When you become 13th level, you are award a gift of your choosing from the round table.  You must choose between a +1 weapon, a cloak of displacement, headband of intellect, or boots of speed.  When chosen, this choice can never be undone

Thunderel Slayer

When you reach 17th level, you may not be the Jack of old, but you are the Jack of now!  As a bonus action you can make a Charisma(Deception) check against another creature.  If that creature fails, you gain advantage on your next attack roll against the creature.

In addition, when you reach level 17, your sneak attack damage against creatures larger than yourself increase to 1d8’s.  If your sneak attack dice are already 1d8’s or larger, increase your sneak attack dice to the next larger dice size.

Daily Punch 8-1-16 Jack! Rogue Archetype for DnD5e

I wrote this for my rogue archetype for my stuff against the Giants, but it doesn’t quite fit…but it’s still fun, so here you go!

Jack!History repeats itself. Some men steal fire from the gods while others…steal geese from the giants. You are the modern day thief who takes from the haves and gives to the havenots (mostly yourself). It just turns out that the haves tend to stand over 10 feet tall and really want to kill you. You best be quick to keep from ending up on the wrong side of some fe fi fo fum!

Jack Be Nimble!

When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain advantage on all Dexterity(sleight of hand) checks.

Jack Be Quick!

Starting at 3rd level, when you take the bonus action granted by your Cunning Action to make a dash action, double your movement again.
Jack Jump over the Candlestick!

Starting at 9th level, you have advantage on a Strength(athletics) and Dexterity (acrobatics) checks.

Clear the Fire

By 13th level, you’ve left the candle burning and have earned your speed. You no longer provoke attacks from leaving an engagement and don’t have disadvantage on ranged attacks in melee.

Devil’s Own Luck

When you reach 17th level, you’ve stolen luck from the devil himself on the other side of your fire. You gain two devil points. You can use these points to reroll an attack, check, or save or force an opponent to reroll an attack, check, or save. These return after a short rest.
