The Vicar - 5e Class

Watermarked PDF

GP 5e Compatible Content

Introducing the Vicar a new 5th edition compatible class!

Interested in livening up your D&D 5e games? Feel that there isn't a class completely dedicated to keeping the party alive? Take a look at the Vicar, a pact-magic divine caster focused on taking care of their brethren!

The Vicar is a pious pact magic divine casting class. Typically, high-ranking members of their clergy, vicars strive to fulfill a greater purpose. In their search, they are guided by their deity to pledge themselves into the service of a celestial being and are granted divine powers as a reward for this devotion. However, patrons don't accept a pledge from everyone who seeks to enter into their service, rather only those deemed capable of carrying out their duties are brought under their tutelage. The Vicar is a complete D&D 5e class with three fully detailed archetypes, called pledges of foundation, which will give players unique options when creating and playing their characters. The archetypes are: Pledge of the Curator, Pledge of the Predicant, and Pledge of the Watcher.

The included PDF contains instructions on creating a Vicar, how they might fit into your DM’s world, and detailed descriptions for all their abilities. Also, the PDF has full custom and detailed lore! Check out the Full-sized preview for more details!

I'm confused about a few elements of this class.
1. Why d6 hit die? This class has nowhere near the potential of a sorcerer or wizard and, as what its effectively a variant warlock, why not just keep it at d8?
2. What is the purpose of this class? What niche does it fill that a warlock with a celestial pact doesn't cover, flavor-wise?
3. This class gains channel divnity and a flavorful but comparitively weak and situational variation of bardic inspiration but gives up warlock invocations. This does not seem like a balanced trade, leaving this class noticeably weaker and less versatile both inside and outside of combat.
4. "Humbling Prayer" feels weak. Giving up all your hit dice at a chance to regain 1 spell slot doesn't seem worth it at all.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
