Time to help those unarmed characters characters crank up some damage!

Daily Punch 11-13-19 Force Punch spell for Castles and Crusades

Ok, something the new school has over the old is wizards and clerics with cantrips that make them a wizard, not a fighter with crappy stats.  Let’s fix that!

CT 1 R 50 ft. D Permanent
SV none SR yes Comp V, S, M
A ball of force is throw from the casters extended finger at  a single target. The caster must succeed with a ranged touch attack to hit the target. The force punch deals 2 +1 per 2 caster levels damage if it hits.
The material component for this spell is a pebble.

Daily Punch 11-12-19 Channel Light Divinity spell for Castles and Crusades

Alright, time to run some games of C and C, and I want some modern in my OSR.  Here is spell for the clerics out there.

 

 

CHANNEL LIGHT DIVINITY*, Level 1 cleric , 2 druid , 2 illusionist
CT 1 R 30ft. D permanent
SV see below SR yes (h) Comp V, S, DF
When the caster yells a prayer to the heavens, all creatures in the areas are healed  for 1d4 hit points of damage. No saving throw is needed when the spell is cast by a cleric or druid. All undead creatures may attempt a wisdom saving throw or take 1d4 hit points damage.

The illusionist version of the spell acts in the same manner with one important exception. The spell recipient of the spell must make an intelligence saving throw. If the creature fails the saving throw, the spell acts normally. If the creature makes the saving throw, the spell fails as the creature realizes that the spell is an illusion. An illusionist cannot cause damage to undead.

The reverse of the spell causes 1d4 hit points damage to living creatures. In those situations, a successful wisdom save indicates half damage if cast by a cleric or druid, or no damage if cast by an illusionist.

Ring Side Report-Keeping it Classy: The Bard

Product– Keeping it Classy: The Bard

System-DnD 5e

ProducerKim Frandsen 

Price– $5 here https://www.dmsguild.com/product/281863/Keeping-It-Classy-The-Bard?affiliate_id=658618 

TL; DR-Another Solid Entry in the Series.  98%

 

Basics-CAN YOU HEAR ME!  Keeping it Classy: bards is another book in the keeping it classy series this time focusing on bards.  This book has items, bard colleges, a new race, and backgrounds all focusing on the musical characters in the party.

Mechanics or Crunch-What’s here is great!  I like the new mechanics, and they all feel balanced with everything else.  I like the items and the backgrounds as they fit as well. I’ve never been a fan of new races because it’s strange to just have a group of creatures that have always been here just appear out of nowhere, but the new race feels balanced as well.  What I want more of is feats. This book and the bard need some more feats, so this feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. Aside from missing feats, I love the stuff that’s here. 4.75/5

Theme or Fluff-This again feels right.  That’s what I want in a book for a class.  The stuff here feels appropriate for the class and the various settings that the bard plays in.  That means its done well. 5/5

 

Execution–  PDF?  Check!  Hyperlinked?  CHECK! Great layout and ease of readability?  CHECK! This is how I want products made. It’s got some original art, but the art that is there does exactly what it was supposed to do- break up the text and intrigue me.  The layout is nice. The font reads easily, and the overall presentation is top notch. 5/5

 

Summary-This is a 6 dollar book that provides a solid punch of material.  You get great mechanics that build the class in a new direction by playing with some different resources.  You get some new backgrounds, and you get solid items. I always want more,and here I feel a few feats would help round out the product.  But, aside from that, the book has an amazing execution, and all the new toys feel like they belong in the fantasy world of DnD. This is a rock solid book most bards should at least check out!  98%
