Unearthed Arcana – Sorcerer

Sun 12 February 2017 by Shawn Ellsworth from Tribality

In this week’s Unearthed Arcana we get a look at 4 new playtest options for the sorcerer: Favored Soul, Phoenix Sorcery, Sea Sorcery, and Stone Sorcery. We’re also asked for feedback on the recent Ranger and Rogue playtest materials. It looks like we’re going to keep getting lots of material like this for the next while, hopefully resulting in a book this fall full of new player options. Unearthed Arcana – Sorcerer The sorcerer unearths new magical possibilities this week. The class receives four playtest options for the Sorcerous Origin feature: Favored Soul, Phoenix Sorcery, Sea Sorcery, and Stone Sorcery. As always, remember that these materials are playtest and were created to test out and get feedback. They most likely are not 100% balanced and game ready. Ranger and Rogue Survey Now that you’ve had a chance to read and ponder the ranger and rogue options from a few weeks ago, we’re ready for you to give us your feedback about them in the following survey. The survey is short, if you’ve had a chance to put any time in with these playtest options, please provide feedback to help the team at WotC keep making 5e better and better.   Read the Full Article | Download the Unearthed Arcana – Sorcerer PDF | Take the Ranger and Rogue Survey
