College of Snakecharmers

Bardic College
Comments from the Finger: Yet another one from my long time to do list, which friend of the blog Grand Moff Xela helped bring to life.

College of Snakecharming

The College of Snakecharming traces its humble beginnings to a street act involving charmed snakes, where musicians would captivate audience and animal alike with strange, ethereal tunes. Over time, the many members learned to enthrall a plethora of types of animals, but kept the name as a nod to their humble roots.

Roguish Archetype
Notes from the Nails: have you ever wanted a splash of shadow monk in rogue without all the fiddly multiclassing and loss of Sneak Attack progression? Well, look no further!


The shinobi are an elite group of rogues who have undergone intense training, similar to that of monks, but focused on stealth, infiltration, and survivalism. Most shinobi hire out their skills as mercenaries, and they have a reputation for loyalty despite their dishonorable fighting style.

Other Unconventional Mimics

Comments from the Finger: Thanks to Lethods and GallicanCourier on the MHP Discord for coming up with most of these!

We just released our Mimic Book of Mimics, which contains all that is known of mimickind to the realm of science. Its pages detail 14 varieties of the common mimic, from the gigantic bluff, to the diminutive mock. However, the book's esteemed author, Guyle Notasham, detailed many more mimics in his personal writings. Such specimens were not given the same care as those detailed in the Mimic Book, but nonetheless deserve further research and attention from the magical community at large.

School of Arithmetick

Arcane Tradition
Notes from the Nails: been a while since we've done a wizard, eh? No prizes for guessing the inspiration here!

School of Arithmetick

Arithmeticians are particularly learnèd wizards who use numerical techniques to analyze natural phenomena and execute pinpoint magical attacks. Their skill with numbers extends into the metaphysical realm, warping the laws of probability and enabling them to achieve incredible efficiency in everything they do.

Path of Tranquility

Primal Path
Comments from the Finger: A clever little barbarian crafted by our friend Grand Moff and refined by yours truly. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Path of Tranquility

Barbarians of the Path of Tranquility follow a strange philosophy for their kind. Unlike their furious berserker brethren, the Serene, as they are often called, practice restraint and moderation in their rage. They are calm, tactical fighters, striking swiftly and without warning.
