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

How about a Magus whose abilities work just as well with two-handed weapons (probably more of a job for an Archetype)?

Better yet, how about a wholly different warrior-mage hybrid: The Archer, a la the Might & Magic series of CRPGs?


Kobold Press has Might of the Magus, which has a feat that allows Bladebound Magi to use two handed weapons. It might be a place to start.


I would like to see a decent champion/paladin of freedom class or mutant full BAB class who gets evolution's as a class feature.

Silver Crusade

Dragon Rider. That would be badass.


There's already a dragon rider 3rd party base class. You can find it on the d20pfsrd.

Yup! It's a gem from Super Genius Games; and definitely worth a look!

I'm working on the Practitioner, a skill-based magic-user.

It may be a while. It's HARD coming up with an appropriate skill check DC. I'm thinking of basing it on a character with a 16 Intelligence, maximum ranks in Spellcraft, and Skill Focus Spellcraft. So a +10 at 1st level, and increasing to around +42 around 20th level (20 ranks + 3 class skill + 3 enhancement + 6 Intelligence + 6 Skill Focus + 4 Magical Aptitude).

15 + triple the spell level?
15 + quadruple the spell level?
15 + quintuple the spell level?

0 15 15 15
1 18 19 20
2 21 23 25
3 24 27 30
4 27 31 35
5 30 35 40
6 33 39 45
7 36 43 50
8 39 47 55
9 42 51 60


There is always the Spellweaver. I can't remember which company made it, but it was skill-based.

LEVEL ABILITY
1. Hex strike, sneak attack +1d6 +1 level of existing class

3. Sneak attack +2d6 +1 level of existing class
4. Hex , Impromptu sneak attack 1/day +1 level of existing class

Hex strike (Su): Beginning at 1st level, whenever the hex striker makes a successful sneak attack, he can forgo 1 die of sneak attack damage and target the creature with a hex. At 6th level, he can forgo 2 dice of sneak attack damage and target the creature with an advanced hex. At 10th level, he can forgo 3 dice of sneak damage and target the creature with a grand hex.

Sneak Attack (Ex): At 1st level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the hex striker’s sneak attack increases by 1d6.

Hex (Ex or Su): At 2nd level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the hex striker gains an additional hex. Hex striker levels stack with witch levels for the purposes of hexes.

Sneaky hexes (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, whenever the hex striker makes a successful sneak attack against a creature, hat creature suffers a penalty equal to the number of sneak attack dice on saving throws against the hex striker’s hexes for a number of rounds equal to half the hex striker’s class level.

Impromptu sneak attack (Ex): Beginning at 4th level, once per day a hex striker can declare one melee or ranged attack she makes to be a sneak attack (the target can be no more than 30 feet distant if the impromptu sneak attack is a ranged attack). The target of an impromptu sneak attack loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, but only against that attack.

Force Adept (Wizard archetype)

Force Pool (Su): The force adept gains a pool of force points equal to half his class level + his Intelligence modifier (minimum 1). Beginning at 1st level, the force adept can spend 1 force point to cast magic missile. At higher levels, the force adept gains other powers that may also consume force points. The force adept’s pool of force points is renewed each day when he prepares spells.
This ability replaces Arcane Bond.

Force School: A force adept must choose to specialize in spells of the force descriptor, gaining additional spells and powers based on that school. This choice is made at 1st level, and once made, it cannot be changed.
A force adept chooses to specialize in spells of the force descriptor and therefore all other spells are opposition spells, representing knowledge sacrificed in one area of arcane lore to gain mastery in another. A force adept who prepares opposition spells from his spellbook must use two spell slots of that level to prepare the spell. For example, a force adept must expend two of his available 3rd-level spell slots to prepare a fireball spell, since fireball lacks the force descriptor. In addition, a force adept takes a –4 penalty on any skill checks made when crafting a magic item that has an opposition spell as a prerequisite.
Force adepts receive an additional spell slot of each spell level he can cast, from 1st on up. Each day, a force adept can prepare a spell of the force descriptor in that slot. This spell must be in the force adept’s spellbook. A force adept can select a spell modified by a metamagic feat to prepare in his school slot, but it uses up a higher-level spell slot.
This replaces Arcane School.

Forceful Missiles (Su): At 1st level, the damage dice of the force adept’s magic missile spells increases by one category, from 1d4+1 to 1d6+1. At 8th level, they increase to 1d8+1. At 14th level, they increase to 1d10+1. At 20th level, they increase to 1d12+1.
This ability replaces the Arcane School powers gained at 1st and 6th or 8th level.

Force Adaptations (Su): At 1st level, 5th level, and every 5 levels thereafter, the force adept gains one of the following special abilities. These special abilities replace Scribe Scroll and the bonus item creation and metamagic feats gained at levels 5, 10, 15, and 20.

Force Adaptations:

Abundant Missiles: Beginning at 11th level, you gain an additional missile when you cast magical missile, for a total of 6 missiles. At 13th level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the number of missiles you gain when you cast magic missile increases by one.

Exploding Missiles: By spending 1 force point from your force pool, you can cause enhance a single casting of magic missile to explode upon strike its target(s). Creatures adjacent to your target take half the damage of your magic missile; they can make a Reflex save with a DC of 10 + ½ your force adept level + your Intelligence modifier for half damage.

Impact Missile: You add your Intelligence modifier to the damage caused by one of the missiles produced whenever you cast magic missile.

Greater Impact Missiles: By spending 1 force point from your force pool, you can add your Intelligence modifier to the damage caused by each of the missiles produced when you cast magic missile. You must have the Impact Missile adaptation before selecting this adaptation.

Maneuver Missiles: By spending 1 force point from your force pool, you can perform one of the following combat maneuvers to each target of your magic missile spell: bull rush, dirty trick, disarm, or trip. You use your caster level + your Intelligence modifier in place of your standard CMB; if you strike a creature with multiple missiles, you gain a +2 bonus to your CMB for each additional missile beyond the first.

Metamagic Missile Mastery: You can reduce the increase in spell slot levels when applying metamagic feats to magic missile spells by spending an equivalent number of force points from your force pool. You cannot spend a portion of the spell level increase; if you do not have enough points in your force pool to completely pay the cost of reducing the extra levels of the metamagic feat applied to the spell, you cannot use this ability.

Penetrating Missiles: When you make a caster level check to overcome the spell resistance of a target of your magic missile spell, you may roll twice and select the higher result. At 20th level, you may roll 3 times and select the highest result.

Spellstriking Missiles: As a full round action, you can cast magic missile and a second companion spell, with the target(s) of your magic missile spell also being the target(s) of the companion spell. You must spend a number of force points equal to the level of the companion spell to activate this ability. A target struck by multiple missiles can only be targeted by the companion spell once.

Greater Spellstriking Missiles: When you use your Spellstriking Missiles ability, you only need to spend half the level of the companion spell in force points. If the target is hit with multiple missiles, for each missile beyond the 1st, you gain a +1 on caster level checks and increase the save DC by +1. You must have the Spellstriking Missiles adaptation before selecting this adaptation.

Sundering Missiles: You can target non-living objects with your magic missile spells. You can make the sunder combat maneuver with your magic missile spells by spending 1 force point from your force pool and making a combat maneuver check with a CMB of your caster level + your Intelligence modifier in place of your standard CMB; if you strike a creature’s object with multiple missiles, you gain a +2 bonus to your CMB for each additional missile beyond the first.

Greater Sundering Missiles: When you target a non-living object with your magic missile spells, you ignore an amount of its hardness equal to your caster level. You can also target golems and other constructs normally immune or resistant to magic with your magic missile spells if your caster level is greater than or equal to the amount of DR/adamantite or DR/- of the golem or construct. You must have the Sundering Missiles adaptation before you can select this adaptation.
