New experimental rules bring Underdark specializations to D&D


Perfect for the Out of the Abyss book

I’ve fallen a bit off of covering all things Dungeons & Dragons due to a dearth of time, but I’m jumping back in with this month’s Unearthed Arcana. This one is all about bringing your character to the subterranean Underdark. There’s two new fighting styles for fighters, paladins, and rangers (Close Quarters Shooter and Tunnel Fighter), a Deep Stalker archetype for rangers, the shadow origin for sorcerers, and a new warlock patron: the Undying Light.

It’s all cool stuff that thematically ties well into the latest adventure, Out of the Abyss. I’ve only DM’ed the opening prison section of that so far (again, no time), but I might get my players to take a look at these just for funsies. Do you guys like these characters, or do you think they need more fine-tuning?
