?x=dnd/dragon/March I am honored to have illustrated the Legendary Items of Krynn article. (we don’t need new 4E classes or races, fiction, board games, monsters adapted from a popular anime series, or rules design for D&D Next). But mixed in with. 8 Dragon Anniversary: Dragonchess By Gary Gygax (afterword by Kim Mohan) D&D isn’t the only game Gary Gygax created. He also invented a chess game.

If you want to express elements of other games, please do it in a non-inflamatory way. Just a quick one: In Dragon Magazine, issueon page 26, there’s an article titled Alternative Multiclass Rules, which is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. Has anyone used dhd, and what’s your opinion?

The rules are horrible and written up by someone with very little understanding of 4e. No one should ever use them.

The basic problem is that it is flat out better than the best hybrid options. You pick the best possible chassis at 1st level – say Avenger as an example.

Alternative Multiclass Rules from Dragon Magazine, Issue : 4eDnD

Then at every power level, you pick the class with the best power choice. Then at every no power level, pick Warden for hit points. So as an example, you’re an Avenger with Oath of Enmity, which works on draagon your melee attacks. At 13th, you switch to Barbarian for Storm of Blades. See, this is the kind of thing I was after, though I think you can only multiclass once in the way written in the article. If you want to multiclass a second time then you need to do so the usual way with feats.


Nope, there’s even a section on ‘Three or more classes’ pointing out that because you took a bunch of great powers, you might not slot into a traditional role. Really, if you want to do multiclassing right, use the hybrid rules. I’d make the following two adjustments hybrid handbook writer snd Anyone with heavy armor proficiency automatically gets Chainmail.

Anyone with light armor proficiency automatically gets Leather.

If both classes have an extra specific skill, hybrid gets to pick one of them. So a Cleric Wizard could pick from Arcana or Religion as the bonus skill.


Yeah, but I’m pretty sure it says earlier in the article that the second multiclass has to be done legitimately. It’ll have to wait until tomorrow for the exact quote though. I dragoh my comment. The single multiclass thing comes from the System Limits “sidebar” – all of which is optional. Optional rules within optional rules. I hate burning Hybrid Talent just to get workable defences.

Okay, so there’s a tonne of reasons not to use the Alternative Multiclass Rules, but is there anything to be said in their favour? This system makes it easier to optimize. Any player who wishes to create a character dnnd powerful than one with a single class can do so. Some powers are simply better than others, or they offer more opportunities for exploitation. The DM should supervise the use of this system to assure the outcome is desirable for his or her game.


Isn’t all Dragon Magazine material technically optional and therefore in need of DM supervision though?

What I’m really after is what people who have used the rules think? One campaign in my gaming group has just started to allow it, and I’m thinking of allowing it in mine too, but it’s too early to tell if it’s going to be a good thing or bad. All Dragon material is core unless it is listed under Unearthed Arcana. For the most part, that’s fine throughout 4e. Sragon of the really problematic material is in books anyway. I’m away from my laptop at the moment, but was this Alternative Multiclass Rules an Unearthed Arcana article?

I don’t know how to feel about it being considered core otherwise I downloaded a totally legit copy of the Dragin Magazine article, and it is, indeed, Unearthed Arcana. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.
