D&D 5th Edition – Gambler Prestige Class

I am working on a Gambler option for my Wild West campaign, and I started with an idea for a Rogue archetype, but then I worked toward a Prestige Class. That way it could be an option for any class that meets the Prestige Class’s requirements, and be useful outside of my campaign for other people.  These are my first notes on building the Gambler, and I began with a few requirements, and then the core mechanic of Gambler’s Luck. Let me know what you think.

Wild West – Crimes and Punishment

I’ve been working to define some more aspects of my Wild West campaign setting based on 1870s Western United States. I started to put together ideas about crimes and punishment, and pulled a lot of ideas from TSR’s Boot Hill. There were many crimes that were punishable by death in the American West in the 1870s, and there were a lot of other minor crimes that required incarceration, fines, and service. Some petty crimes may have been overlooked by someone with a certain reputation, and others unlawful activities required a law enforcement officer or law abiding citizen to take quick action against the offender. So how could I use those ideas in a role-playing game?

Wild West Setting for D&D 5e – Tribal Shaman NPC

I put together a 5th edition Gunfighter Class for player characters recently. I think it fits well into an 1870’s Wild West campaign that I’ve been working on. Wild West was one of the first homebrew settings that I put together when 5th edition came out in 2014. I had put together a Native American Warrior and a Wild West Outlaw, but since then I’ve needed to add a little more magic into the game.

GhostDancePaiuteTo add more magic, I’ve focused on a Tribal Shaman NPC for now, but I am also working on a Shaman Class for player characters that want to play Native Americans, and later a Scout that is an back country explorer that shares traits of the Ranger class. Also some magic items that would make sense for a Wild West campaign.

Wild West Setting for D&D 5e

I have worked on a Gunslinger class for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition.  I posted my first version on the D&D 5th Facebook group Gun Slinger class link,  and can be found in the files section.  Since then, I have been working on the environment and settings of the Wild West for my D&D game.  I have the old Boot Hill game that I used to play, and the old conversion rules from AD&D for Boot Hill (It’s in the AD&D 1st edition Dungeon Master’s Guide).  I find it nifty that even Gary Gyax thought
