Path of Shadows 5e - Bringing Shadow Magic to D&D 5th Edition!


The past couple of weeks I've been working on porting my first book, Path of Shadows, to the 5e rule set. And now, a playtest is available!

The Path of Shadows - For D&D 5e playtest includes the nightblade class and several shadow- and darkness-themed spells. Most of them are ports from Path of Shadows, but classic spells like shadow conjuration and darkbolt are also included.

You can download the playtest here.

There will be discussion threads open on the Paizo boards, Giant in the Playground, and reddit. Your feedback is invaluable!
