4e Martial Exploits as 5e Alternate Rewards

Post by Tim Baker » Thu Feb 07, 2019 4:38 am

I posted about this over in the 5th Edition sub-forum, since it's a 5e product, but I thought the 4e community might be interested in this as well. Remember the alternate rewards from the 4th Edition Dungeon Master's Guide 2? I always liked the idea that my character could receive some sort of boon that was memorable and just as powerful as a magic item, yet different.

The designer of Martial Exploits is clearly a fan of 4th Edition. He converted over 500 4th Edition martial powers from the fighter, ranger, rogue, and warlord, and updated them for 5e. Rather than try to shoehorn them into 5e subclasses, he designed them as alternate rewards.

The book is pay-what-you-want, so if you're a 4e fan who's now playing 5e, or you're still playing 4e and hadn't considered how you might use some of these powers as alternate rewards, check it out.

Huh - that does look very interesting! This is something that I have been considering for a while now - alternative rewards based on 4e stuff - I'll take a look.
