Pioneer Martial Archetype (Explore the frontier with this D&D 5E fighter subclass)

Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild

The wild frontier is yours to control with the homebrew D&D 5E fighter subclass the Pioneer


An archetypical Pioneer is a hardy outdoorsperson that leads or guides a group as they push back nature’s frontier. Tending to favor defensive styles, many of the Pioneer’s abilities focus on support capabilities as they work to maintain their group’s safety. As with any fighter, a Pioneer offers a versatile suite of multi-role functionalities.


Leading a wagon train, building a fort or carving out a town from the untamed wilderness, Pioneers are a determined sort of people. Their goals are to get things built, keep their people safe and stay alive while doing it. Pioneers tend to be humans, half-orcs or half-elves but any race can feel the call of exploration. Personalities range from gruff individualists to charismatic leaders.

Hexblade:Lady of the White Well Conversion

Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
Back in 2010 in Dragon issue # 393 Wizards of the Coast Dungeons & Dragons released an alternate Fey Pact for their then 4e Hexblade Subclass introduced in Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms. Written by Robert J. Schwalb, the Fey Pact of The White Well added a King Arthur/Lady of the Lake fantasy feel to the hexblade story. The article also introduced new features and a new fey pact weapon to replace the Blade of Winter’s Mourning. This is a conversion of that 4e Hexblade option into current 5e rules.

Or will they meet the same demise as so many before them?

This adventure includes opportunities for battle, role-play, and surviving the elements.

Tournament of Pigs: Support this Zinequest DCC Kickstarter!

We who are about to die, salute you!

Tournament of Pigs is a Zero-Level adventure module where the players assume the roles of a group of commoners that have been selected for a competition with mysterious goals and horrendous survivability. The challenges won’t just test the player’s luck with the dice, but also their ability to think quickly, solve puzzles, and employ cunning tactics. The competition includes a medieval cooking show, relay races against oozes, pig wrestling, and a lot more that we wouldn’t want to spoil! 

Will you choose to go it alone, or form an alliance with the other competitors? Whatever you choose, only one player will be declared winner of the Tournament of Pigs!

Art by Chris Arneson

The life-expectancy of a commoner thrust into deadly adventures is short, so players pre-generate enough characters to get them through the session. In Tournament of Pigs, if a commoner dies, the player introduces a replacement at the beginning of the next event. The King’s mad mage, Falazar, has spent all year preparing the events to be featured in the Tournament. The challenges vary from baleful bloodsport, to cooking competitions, to risky riddles, to pernicious puzzles. 

Unlike most adventure modules, Tournament of Pigs is not fully cooperative. Players will be competing to score the most points by the end of the session, to be declared the winner.  How competitive, or cooperative the players want to be is entirely up to them (and the GM.) 

The adventure consist of a series of contests where players are challenged to discover a secret “Silver Prize” which unlocks access to the famed Silver Cart, and scores a player one point.  Players must be careful though, if their hapless commoner falls victim to a deadly trap, they will lose a point.  At the end of the tournament, the player with the most points is declared the victor!

  Le monopole de l’Ether a séparé le monde en 2 camps : Les mégacités et le monde extérieur. Futur post-cyberpunk et passé fantaisiste se cotoient sur une terre exploitée à l’extrême, créant un mélange lovecraftien piqué par 2 ou 3 doses d’adrénaline.

    Vous ne vous battez pas contre des “méchants”, mais contre des personnes emprisonnées dans un système valorisant l’aliénation. Vous êtes là pour façonner votre propre isolement dans une quête d’Ether dont vous serez le dictateur. Vous êtes un moins que rien, une merde égoïste, alors n’essayez pas de jouer au héros car votre mère n’est déjà plus fière de vous…

Que ferez vous en tant que joueurs  ?

     Vous incarnerez un délinquant ayant volé la technologie du savoir immédiat. Forcé de fuir aux yeux du gouvernement et à la convoitise des chasseurs, votre seul moyen de survivre sera de vous intéresser aux mystères que provoquent les déchets de la technologie. Vous participerez à des évènements atypiques qui vous permettront d’augmenter votre corps, au risque de devoir affronter l’étrange et l’inexplicable. Seules la curiosité et l’audace seront récompensées.

     Tout au long d’une partie, vous devrez constamment aller au-delà de votre zone de confort, faire des sacrifices, aussi bien au niveau corporel que moral, en poussant les limites de ce qui définit le vivant. Mais vous visiterez aussi des châteaux de pierre en Harley – ou bien des Apple stores en charrette -, vous pourrez croiser l’abbaye du dieu vindicateur en forme de boîtes de céréales, ou vous vous battrez même parfois avec des armes absurdes pour des causes très importantes !

     Le monde de Doxa est un monde de dualité où l’humour et le sérieux se rencontrent, où l’utopie et la dystopie se font face, passé et futur, post-cyberpunk et MedFan… Ce sera à vous de choisir votre propre direction.

Qui  sont les créateurs de Doxa ?
