There have been quite a few Unearthed Arcana subclasses for D&D 5e.
It's that time again: D&D has released new Unearthed Arcana. The latest UA playtest content, we have two new subclasses with the the Undead patron for Warlocks and the College of Spirits for the Bard.
We've talked about Unearthed Arcana here before, focusing on Subclasses to change up how your favorite class plays, but the latest playtest content from Wizards of the Coast for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition is something a little different -- instead of focusing on new subclasses to alter a specific class, it decides instead to give you new feats which can be taken by almost any class (although some wouldn't be very useful for all classes).

One of the reasons I love Wizards of the Coast and tabletop RPGs in general is how quickly they can get new class options to us with things like Unearthed Arcana, and the latest edition unveils a whole new Psionics system.

One of the things I love about playtest content in Dungeons and Dragons is when it gets weird.
It can be easy to forget that Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition came out six years ago, in August 2014.
Up until now the D&D Beyond app for smartphones and tablets was a reference app, which was really useful if you were looking up information from one of the books in your virtual collection.
