Master New 5E D&D Feats from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything

Some of the earliest marketing for fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons back when it was still the D&D Next playtest phase touted the modular nature of the upcoming new (and still current) iteration of the game. I’ve always felt this was a fantastic way to frame 5E D&D. As the edition matured over the last few years it’s been terrific to watch this approach blossom through each new book release. Now with Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything one of the Ur modules of 5E D&D gets a major boost with the addition of 15 new feats taking character customization to a whole new dimension. So let’s get into it.

First Strike of Forging the City of Anvil for 5E D&D

“Where do I begin?” Often this is the biggest question any fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master asks themselves. An idea about a theme, a villain or a narrative conflict they imagine represent common starting points. But in reality where any 5E D&D campaign must begin is a place. This place determines the villain or villains, the environment and the space where characters will first be realized. This part of worldbuilding defines who or what those characters can plausibly be and shapes them as much as they shape the place. This location, no matter how large or small, define its citizens and initial plots. It is the anvil upon which players hammer out a story with the DM.

Over at Nerdarchy the YouTube channel Nerdarchists Dave and Ted get inspired by a comment made during Live Chat Revivified and set out to explore the concept of a magical assassin for fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons. When it came up how an Assassin rogue’s signature Assassinate feature indicates advantage on any attack rolls — not just weapon attacks — the gears began turning. A dash of this, a dip of that and out comes an unusual but very effective 5E D&D character. So let’s get into it.

For everyone who’s ever wanted to play a superhero in fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons now you can thanks to Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything. (Maybe not literally any superhero.)

If we’re talking flavor for a fantasy world superhero, the Psi Warrior Martial Archetype for the fighter is second to none.
