I'm bored: give me ideas for a new base class I can design!

I especially love that "unobtainium". Now let's do Dante from Devil May Cry.


rofls at the chuck norris template


Im thinking im gonna keep the 3/4 base attack, lower skills to 2+int, and lose the more rogueish skills, casting 1st to 6th lvl spells, lose the martial weapon proficiencies, not gonna gain any armor proficiencies.


I'm trying to come up with another NPC class, I have no ideas for a name nor class skills.

BAB: +3/4
Good Saves: Ref
Hit Dice: 1d8

Class Skills: ???

Skill Ranks per Level: 5 + Intelligence modifier

Weapon and Armor Proficiency:
All simple weapons, one martial weapon; light armor.

.

I'm also thinking of boosting the Expert to:

Class Skills: Choose 20 skills to be class skills

Skill Ranks per Level: 8 + Intelligence modifier

.
so I might increase the unnamed class to 6 + int mod , I kinda have a possible rogue/thief role for it.

I was wondering if you could make a class based off of the Puppet Technique. It would be fun to see your take on it.


How about a class that kind of works like the synthesist summoner but modifies their body like an alchemist but with machinery like the artificer, I can totally see a character with multiple mechanical arms he uses for aid in his mechanical creation and use them in combat, or even get an eye implant for true sight, built in jetpacks would be a hilariously awesome thing too.
(who hasn't wanted a jetpack at some point?)


What about a Swordsman who learns to pull inherent Magical abilities out of a given weapon.

Unlike a SpellSword, where it's the characters magic and the weapon is a channel, he can take any blade, even a few mundane ones and pull out a magical effect from it.

For instance, your common everyday longsword, he might be able to pull off a keen spell effect, but with something like a +2 Flaming burst Greatsword, he could pull out a spell effect that's similar in most ways to a Fireball spell.

I just like the idea of a weaponmaster-type Fighter, loaded down with weapons of all shapes and sizes.

Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame had some killer puppeteers like that in that shadow city. Neat idea, maybe combine it with that blue magic/chakra alternative magic system with the essences and stuff.

Look for a thread in these forums called List of Artificer Classes. That will have something that you want.


Perhaps a Monk that specializes in heavier monk weapons, Such as a ball and chain, or those large metal-shod clubs you see sometimes. I forget the names.

Magic of Incarnum


It might be better to stick to Pathfinder rules if you can. The fluff works though...


Magic of Incarnum is based off of Hindu Chakra meditation. I learned it from Robert Mitra. Research it, change it, and rename every aspect.


a star wars trooper!

SmiloDan might be taken up by the RPG Superstar thing right now.

Yeah, just a bit. :-D


Well, now that I know that, go about your Superstar business. Should be interesting to watch.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I was working on a Berserker-type class that used different spirits to get different kinds of rages and other related abilities.


He is? You are? What's your name so I can vote for you, SmiloDan?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Voted.


Same here.

Thanks a ton!!!!

I got some NPC classes if you are interested I will post them.

I am looking for a engineer that works with Mech as well as creating them if you have something like that around?

The list here has SmiloDan's tinker class. And other stuff that might work for you.

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

One of my players asked to use your Prodigy for my game. Looks pretty balanced, gonna give it a shot. Any changes you might have made to it since it was posted?


You know how Ragnarok has a Super Novice class? I'd like to see a Super Commoner.

Not yet. I'll probably add more options later. But the basic framework should be the same.

Well here is an NPC class I use, they are only 10 levels long since I really don't think NPC classes should even be higher than that. This classes are similar to the Ultimate NPC classes that are also 10 levels and are really good also.

Rune Priest and Rune Mage, think warhammer esque, priest focused on more of beneficial spells, but not without the damage, and the mage focused on damage spells, but also with wizard like utility.

Has anyone got any good ideas on how to bring the beguiler (from the Player's Handbook II 3.5) into Pathfinder?

Cheliax

I think someone made it a bloodline for sorcerer if I'm not mistaken, I just don't have the thread at hand to give you the link.

Good ol' warhammer dwarf player, kick as mini and powers for those special character if I do recall.

I actually was thinking of converting some of the warhammmer spells myself when I get the chance (from WFRP 2ed.)

I'm still not satisfied by the classes I read that do tinkering-engineering as I am looking for a Mecha creator engineer class/prestige class probably would be more accurate.

Skill Ranks per Level: 6 + Int modifier.

Beguilers are proficient in all Simple Weapons, plus hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, and shortsword. Beguilers are proficient in Light Armor, but not shields.

Beguilers base their spells on Intelligence, know all beguiler spells, cast as sorcerers.

LEVEL ABILITY
1. Armored Casting, Cantrips, Trapfinding
2. Cloaked Casting (+1 DC), Surprise Casting
3. Advanced Learning
4. Silent Spell
5. Advanced Learning
6. Surprise Casting (move action)
7. Advanced Learning
8. Cloaked Casting (+2 CL vs. SR)
9. Advanced Learning
10. Still Spell
11. Advanced Learning
12. Surprise Casting (ranged feint, up to 5 feet per Intelligence modifier)
13. Advanced Learning
14. Cloaked Casting (+2 DC)
15. Advanced Learning
16. Extend Spell
17. Advanced Learning
18. Surprise Casting (swift action)
19. Advanced Learning
20. Cloaked Casting (overcomes spell resistance)

Armored Casting (Ex). The beguiler does not suffer the chance of arcane spell failure when she wears light armor and is casting spells from her beguiler spell list.

Cantrips (Sp). The beguiler can cast the seven 0 level spells from the beguiler spell list at will as a spell-like ability.
Trapfinding (Ex). As the rogue ability of the same name.

Cloaked Casting (Ex). Beginning at 2nd level, the beguiler's spells become more effective against unwary opponents. At 2nd level, the beguiler gets a +1 bonus to the Save DC of any spell she casts against a target that is denied their Dexterity bonus to AC (whether or not they actually have a Dexterity bonus).
At 8th level, the beguiler gains a +2 bonus to overcome the spell resistance of an affected target.
At 14th level, the bonus to her spell DCs increase to +2
At 20th level, the beguiler automatically overcomes the spell resistance of an affected target.

Surprise Casting (Ex). The beguiler can use the Bluff skill to feint in melee combat to deny an opponent its Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) on the next melee attack she makes or the next spell she casts.
At 6th level, she can feint in combat as a move action. If she already has the Improved Feint feat, she can now feint in combat as a swift action.
At 12th level, she can feint in combat even if she isn't in melee with the target of her feint. She can be as far away as 5 feet per point of Intelligence bonus she has.
At 18th level, she can feint in combat as a swift action. If she has the Improved Feint feat, she can feint in combat as a free action.

Advanced Learning (Ex). At 3rd level, and every odd level thereafter, the beguiler can add a single Enchantment or Illusion spell up to the highest spell level she can cast to her spell list. Alternatively, she can add any other Sorcerer/Wizard spell to her spell list, but it is treated as if it were 1 level higher than normal.

Bonus Feats. At 4th level, the Beguiler gains Silent Spell as a bonus feat. At 10th level, she gains Still Spell as a bonus feat. At 16th level, she gains Extend Spell as a bonus feat. If the beguiler already has one of the listed feats already, she may instead choose any metamagic feat she qualifies for instead.

* * * * *

Now all it needs is an updated spell list.

Chubbs, the Sandman bard is basically PF's beguiler. But I've heard that it works just fine as is (especially if you normalize the HD / BAB).

Silver Crusade

Thanks guys!

I don't personally play WFB but I have friends who do, I'm just looking for base classes that aren't terrible.

Cheliax

Completely understandable. I was looking into Anima Beyond fantasy and wanted something similar to their Technician class.

Which is basically a class that manipulates Ki to apply spell effect to their weapons. There are only 5 ki powers attainable and they are school dependent, so it is something similar to a Magus you could use as skeleton but Technicians use no spells all their abilities are martial + their ki techniques that are weapon dependent.

Technician usually learn 1 school only and sometimes they go into other schools but only for the lower abilities since they can only master 1 school. (very costly exp wise to master 2 but possible, just not likely to happen).


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I really like the new Magus. Could a Base Class for Elves be constructed to embody a 'jack of all trades' deliatente (sp)? Say a good Base attack bonus, Ranger-esque woodsey skills and just enough Druid stuff to be a poor excuse. Light armor, bow skills and so on.


I still want to see a Puppet Master Class! I would to be able to have a BBEG who was literally "pulling the strings!" :D


A summoner variant class that instead of calling an eidolon craft a golem. Pretty easy to do. Add some evolutions, change some features, and concentrate on class flavour.


See, I just don't know if that would have the same feel. A user of Puppet Mastery even used a human as her puppet once(with consent) in a fight to great effect.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Eridanus Games' Grittier Rules has a puppet master which is...well just like AlecStorm asked. They get Animate Objects instead of Summon Monster

Plus, they can animate Colossal objects instead of Gate, something no one else can do :)


Nice :)


The song "Be Our Guest" just popped into my head. Thank you for that, Cheapy and Alec.

Cheliax

Someone made a great class called the Puppeteer in the forum already mate.

It was more of a bard/summoner mix if I remember.

Puppeteer


Huh, didn't think to look around here on Paizo. I'll check it out.

I would still like to see how SmiloDan does it though.

This looks interesting. I don't think it's quite balanced yet; all I know is that I want to play one.

AERIAL MASTER
The aerial master is an archetype of the summoner that specializes in commanding the spirits of the air. Their aerial servants allow them to float down from great heights, leap through the air with ease, and eventually soar amongst the clouds.

Aerial Servant

An aerial master begins play with the ability to summon to his side a powerful outsider called an eidolon. The eidolon forms a link with the aerial master, who, forever after, summons an aspect of the same creature. An eidolon has the same alignment as the aerial master that calls it and can speak all of his languages. Eidolons are treated as summoned creatures, except that they are not sent back to their home plane until reduced to a number of negative hit points equal to or greater than their Constitution score. In addition, due to its tie to its aerial master, an eidolon can touch and attack creatures warded by protection from evil and similar effects that prevent contact with summoned creatures.

An aerial master can summon his eidolon in a ritual that takes 1 minute to perform. When summoned in this way, the eidolon hit points are unchanged from the last time it was dismissed or banished. The only exception to this is if the eidolon was slain, in which case it returns with half its normal hit points. The eidolon does not heal naturally. The eidolon remains until dismissed by the aerial master (a standard action). If the eidolon is sent back to its home plane due to death, it cannot be summoned again until the following day. The eidolon cannot be sent back to its home plane by means of dispel magic, but spells such as dismissal and banishment work normally. If the aerial master is unconscious, asleep, or killed, his eidolon is immediately banished. The eidolon takes a form shaped by the aerial master’s desires, but always appears as an airy or wispy form, similar to an air elemental. The eidolon’s Hit Dice, saving throws, skills, feats, and abilities are tied to the aerial master’s class level and increase as the aerial master gains levels. In addition, each eidolon receives a pool of evolution points, based on the aerial master’s class level, that can be used to give the eidolon different abilities and powers. The aerial servant gains the magic flight evolution; aerial servants reduce the number of evolution points a standard eidolon gets by 2. Do to the airy nature of the aerial master’s aerial servant, the two can share the same space without penalty. Whenever the aerial master gains a level, he must decide how these points are spent, and they are set until he gains another level of aerial master.

The eidolon’s physical appearance is up to the aerial master, but it always appears as some sort of fantastical creature similar in appearance to an air elemental. This control is not fine enough to make the eidolon appear like a specific creature. The eidolon also bears a glowing rune that is identical to a rune that appears on the aerial master’s forehead as long as the eidolon is summoned. While this rune can be hidden through mundane means, it cannot be concealed through magic that changes appearance, such as alter self or polymorph (although invisibility does conceal it as long as the spell lasts).

This replaces the standard summoner’s eidolon.

Domain (Su): The aerial master selects one of the following domains: Air, Animal (Feather sub-domain only), Fire (Smoke sub-domain only), Travel, or Weather. A number of times per day equal to 3 + his Charisma modifier, the aerial master can cast the 1st level spell from his chosen domain. At 3rd level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the aerial servant gains access to the next higher level spell of his selected domain, up to 9th level spells at 17th level. At 19th level, the aerial servant gains the ability to cast winds of vengeance. The aerial master uses his class level as his cleric level for the purposes of determining the special abilities gained by his chosen domain.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Summon Monster ability.

Wind Sense (Sp): Beginning at 2nd level, a number of rounds per day equal to his level, the aerial master can use feather fall or jump. At 4th level, aerial master can use glide or levitate. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. The aerial master must be within the space or reach of his aerial servant to use these abilities.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Bond Senses ability.

Sky Call (sp): Beginning at 6th level, a number of minutes per day equal to his level, the aerial master can fly with a speed and maneuverability equal to his aerial servant‘s. These minutes do not need to be consecutive, but they must be used in 1 minute increments. The aerial master must be within the space or reach of his aerial servant to use these abilities.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Maker’s Call ability.

Greater Sky Call (Sp): Beginning at 8th level, a number of hours per day equal to his level, the aerial master can fly with a speed and maneuverability equal to his aerial servant‘s. These hours do not need to be consecutive, but they must be used in 1 hour increments. The aerial master must be within the space or reach of his aerial servant to use these abilities.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Transposition ability.

Aspect of the Sky (Sp): Beginning at 10th level, the aerial master can transfer up to 2 evolution points from his aerial servant to himself and grant himself a fly speed of 30 ft. per evolution point, with perfect maneuverability.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Aspect ability.

Wind Walk (Sp): Beginning at 16th level, the aerial master can use wind walk a number of hours per day equal to his level. The aerial master, and any allies he selects to be transported with him, must be within the space or reach of his aerial servant to use this ability.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Merge Forms ability.

Greater Aspect of the Sky (Sp): Beginning at 18th level, the aerial master can transfer up to 6 evolution points from his aerial servant to himself and grant himself a fly speed of 30 feet per evolution point, with perfect maneuverability. This reduces the aerial servant’s evolution pool by only 1 for every 2 evolution points granted to the aerial master.
This ability replaces the standard summoner’s Greater Aspect ability.
