Non-spellcasting shapechanger. Barbarian/Druid/Lycanthrope? hybrid.

The game has a way to make almost any concept or trope work so far: S Holmes (Investigator, Master Spy), Captain America (Brawler Sheld dude), Achilles (Destined Bloodrager) etc. for example.

But there is no way to make a non-casting full BAB shapechanger.

If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Skin Changer in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

The Skin Changer is an alternate of the popular Spell-less Ranger class, so it is indeed a full BAB, non-spellcasting shapechanger :)

From Endzeitgeist' review:
"The Spell-less ranger also gets a variant class herein, the skin-changer - this one's interesting: Learning to change into the forms and animals and specializes in better natural attacks. No animal companion, though, and a different list of talents. The skin-changer also gets natural armor etc. - per se a concept none too complex in what it tries to do, but remains very evocative in its versatile options - the variant class remains one of the more iconic ones I've seen and makes for a great addition - once again - fine work indeed!"

From a Drivethru RPG review
"There is also a variant that was released with this book called the Skin Changer and it is one that I have been wanting to try out so badly. This variant trades out the favored enemy, combat style, and animal companion of a Spell-less Ranger with the ability to essentially wild shape into animals that scales like a druid so it actually feels pretty balanced and a ton of fun if you are into playing a shifter without contracting a terrible were- disease."

Yeah? I see it as nothing else but a cash grab to bank in on 40+ years of nostalgia in most adults living today.

I was shocked more at your "It probably won't even dent the box office." comment. Most knowledgeable people I've heard feel the Jungle Book will make a massive amount of money and will most likely even get nominated for some big awards.

Claxon, you should check out the Theurge! Although the class does get some additional abilities and class synergies, what you describe is more or less how the class works

Liberty's Edge

I can absolutely help!

Check out the Theurge class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!!! It's *exactly* what your are describing!

A few quotes from the various reviews:

"The Theurge is, in my opinion, a long needed addition to the game. The use of a "Prayer Book" elegantly handles the balance issues of giving a single class access to effectively every spell in the game."

"The Theurge! Oh my! Basically, this is a normal class version of the Mystic Theurge. You get both divine and arcane spellcasting progression, with both sides having halved spells per day. Additionally, each set of spellcasting uses a different ability score for save DCs. This Theurge has a lot of versatility, and can bring a lot of tools to any party."

"The Theurge is an amazing spellcaster that allows you to cast divine and arcane spells right from the get go, without having to make that climb into Paizo’s Mystic Theurge prestige class. Well fear no longer, because the Theurge can do that from level 1 and can even cast two spells at the same time given that one is arcane and one is divine. Their only downfall is how many spells per day they can actually pull off but then again, if they could cast all day like other classes, then it would be broken and probably banned from tables so I find it very balanced in that fact."

Crystal, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz, and the Ruby Dragon Sardior himself - gem dragons have been part of D&D since the earliest days.

Ed Greenwood says: "There's something cool about dragons. A special sort of cool. Great power, hubris, magic, wits to match the adventurers' own. Any Dungeon Master can always use a new dragon, either a detailed individual or entirely new sorts of dragons. In Gem Dragons of Faerûn, you get both.

"Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed (and, of course, 5th Edition) treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"

No, it's a single, full-lentgh film.

In addition the the main trilogy they are doing (Episodes 7, 8, and 9) there will also be a number of stand-alone movies to tell various, individual Star Wars stories. This is the first such movie. The next will be a Han Solo origin movie

Endzeitgeist Reviews Southlands!

From the review:
"This may well be the best sourcebook Kobold Press has released ... perhaps this is even one of the best sourcebooks I've ever read. Southlands is excellence - if you even remotely are interested in the subject matter, do yourself a favor and get this glorious tome - it contains enough ideas and adventure for a lifetime and I am not engaging in hyperbole here. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval and I'll also nominate this as a candidate for my Top Ten of 2015."

As I said in the other thread, a lot of people put in a LOT of time, energy, blood, and sweat into this book, so reviews like this make it all worth while!

Just wanted to say that some of these types of classes are in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. If you allow any Third Party material in your games, the New Paths Compendium is worth checking out!

14 5-star ratings! :)

Quote:
Shapeshifter- Class that is a non-spellcaster that focuses on changing into anyone and anything. Maybe gains additional bonuses while using it's shape shifting.

Check out the Skin-Changer, a non-spellcasting class with a host of shapeshifting abilities. When in animal form, the class gets a number of enhanced combat abilities too!

Quote:
I would love a 9th level cha based spontaneous caster with the druid spell list. Maybe some kind of totem animal/spirit for it's bloodline/mystery/domain type focus. I really wish this what the shaman was like.

The Shaman is EXACTLY that type of class (not the Paizo shaman, the Shaman that is in the New Paths Compendium - which, incedentaly. came out well before the Paizo version :)

I have to say, some folks are being pretty dismisive of Gygax. Let's never forget that he, more than any one person *period* is the reason we have the game(s) we all play and love today. Although there certainly were other people that helped Gary shape D&D, he was the main, driving creative force that made the game, not to mention the company he founded to publish the game, the success it was and continues to be through its' many successors.

I just think Gygax deserves a bit more respect that he's getting in this thread

Personally, I consider the following campaign settings pure awesomeness. Only settings with multiple supplemental products/continued support count.

Relatively traditional (but thoroughly awesome) settings:

Midgard by Kobold Press - Dark fantasy goodness with a Germanic/Slavic focus and excellent adventures and supplemental material.

Midgard fans should be on the look out ... there just might be a pretty major new hardcover coming ... :)

Star Wars the Force Awakens was an excellent film.
The three Prequels were mediocre films with a few decent scenes mixed in.
Temple of Doom was much better than Crystal Skull
I really have zero interest in yet another Indianna Jones movie, and I have a feeling neither does the majority of the movie going public ...

It's actually a prepared Charisma caster, which is even a bit more special because that makes it the only prepared 9-level Charisma caster I can think of at the moment (paladin is prepared but 4th)!

I don't care which ability is used for spellcasting but if I have to choose between memorized casting and spontaneous casting, I'll choose spontaneous almost everytime.

All of these.

Add me to the "so very disappointed with this reveal" list. I'll be houseruling that away immediately, or just sticking to Kobold Press's Shaman.

Using Kobold Press's spontaneous casting, Shaman class sounds like a great idea to me! :)

Great thread!

I am a Full-Blown, Grade A, No Apologies, Dice Geek!!! so I love talking about dice :)

My first set of dice was indeed the old, color in the numbers variety. They came in my then brand new D&D game box back around 1979 (actually, TSR was experiencing a dice shortage due to the game's massive but unexpected popularity, so my box came with sheets of numbered cutout cardstock chits to use instead of dice, along with a coupon for ordering the dice directly from TSR once they got them back in stock)

I've been noodling away at the archetype I mentioned earlier (in my copious amounts of free time:) and an interesting thing seems to have developed, without being intended ...

In addition to being (in my oh so humble opinion) a pretty darn interesting archetype, it also appears to pretty nicely address the issue that a small but vocal number of folks have expressed, i.e. feeling the class might be a bit too powerful due to having access to the full wizard/sorcerer spell list (albeit up to 6th level spells, of course).

Mind you, I think the power-level and balance of the Trickster is just about right as is, BUT, for those that feel otherwise, I think this archetype might just offer a great alternative.

Basically, I guess what I'm saying is I'm really happy with how this bad boy is shaping up :)

The trickster is an awesome class with several innovations in its abilities I absolutely adore...and yes, this is allowed in my game.

... all around precise and well done in both formal and rules-language departments.

Instead of cobbling together two classes, the trickster is a completely unique class. Let me sum up the unique benefits here: The trickster streamlines problematic arcane trickster class features, has a unique spellcasting-blend that plays different from standard classes while being easy to understand and it provides a balanced, strong means to represent the sneak attack double team as well as, most importantly, creating the AWESOME spell pilfer mechanic.

What an absolutely great way to start the week :)
