The Artificer has been a well-loved class within Dungeons and Dragons, both by myself and by the community as a whole. Artificers are individuals who combine a mastery of science with complicated arcane knowledge to invent fantastic trinkets of magical power. In 5e, the Artificer was recently released under the Unearthed Arcana title as a playtesting class. While a welcome surprise, public opinion so far has been that this playtest material has some great concepts, but ultimately falls flat in creativity, customization, and gameplay.
No two Artificers should be the same; that is the core of my design philosophy. They are inventors and tinkerers, whatever their specialization, and that should reflect in the class design. As such, my alterations to the base Unearthed Arcana try to grant Artificer players more customization options, both in general character design and gameplay.
Anything I release through Geeks New England for DnD will be completely free. Unfortunately this particular title cannot be found on DMsGuild, but you can find the pdfe here from Homebrewery and also here from Google Drive. Please feel free to critique, test, and comment.
