More on classes in D+D

For some reason I looked at the video below/overleaf on Youtube, it’s about D&D character classes and multi-classing and this is my response. Not sure how useful it is as most of the words relate to rules no longer used.

It also added a bunch of spells for all spell casting classes, introduced weapon specialisation and changed the way in which attribute generation occurred, recognising that the choice of class should come before the attribute rolls.

Another great feature was the enrichment of the demi-human multi- combinations and the enhanced level restrictions for demi-human multi-class options. Continue reading “Unearthed Arcana”
