Okay - thought this was interesting DL Spellcasters - Pathfinder Style


Wow, I like that. I've used the Mystic as a core class for all my games even outside of Dragonlance and was thinking of a way to update it. I'd have to playtest it but just from eyeballing this I think I like it, only might give it the spell known from book of Eldric Might.

Thanks for the link. This raises the question however. Is the Dragonlance Nexus, as a fan sight not doing 4e? I guess I just assumed they did, since the 3e "offical" books came out I really have been to that sight, forgot all about it to tell the truth. Or as a fan sight are they trying to please and support every edition of the game.

In any case this is a welcomed update. As I said the Mystic as a class and concept has always been in every setting I run.

Thanks Dre.

Ed. After looking at this, I can see the potential of expanding the sphers, one could only dream of the people at Paizo taking the concept of the Mystic and doing something like this with it, or at the very lest more online support.

Truth be told, I just kinda stumbled into the site while doing some poking around. I'd been there before and I got the feeling WotC ditched DL and they were doing the grassroots thing to keep it alive.

However ... My understanding is that the 4E DL *has* been given a go, and they are now lining up to get that work going.

What I was pleased about was seeing folks there converting to Pathfinder. That was real cool. This one article isn't the only one, but I have work-things to do tonight o.O

Dang work ....

The Dragonlance Nexus supports Dragonlance gaming in general, not a specific version of Dungeons & Dragons. We have material for AD&D, D&D 3e, D&D 4e, Pathfinder RPG, SAGA, True20, C&C, Dogs in the Vineyard, etc. etc., and we will continue to post everything the Dragonlance fans submit to us. Our goal is provide an online home for all Dragonlance gamers where you can find a ton of resources for your games and where you can discuss Dragonlance gaming.

As for the article you found, Clive Squire really did an amazing job, I think. The mystic and sorcerer classes have been a topic of great debate ever since the Dragonlance Campaign Setting came out. A lot of people didn't feel that the two classes (and by extension, the fluff) had the same feel they originally had in the SAGA days and I think that Clive managed to bring that back into the classes with his article.

As for Pathfinder RPG in general, a lot of Dragonlance fans are looking at Pathfinder RPG with a lot of optimism, me included. I really like D&D 4e but for various reasons I'm considering sticking with D&D 3.5/Pathfinder RPG.


Dang work ....

I understand your concerns but just remeber work helps to pay for more game books. Its all part of the cycle of life. Or money, whatever.

Thanks for the info. Dragonlance nexus might have to become one of my regular game support sights, particularly for the mystic. Like most things I don't play that much in offical Dragonlance but they have come up with some of the best material for 3e games, for any setting. If the fans move on to Pathfinder hey, I'll take the best ideas online form them and thank them all very much.

In general I have to say I can understand why the fans dislike the mystic and sorcere classes. They don't fit well with the setting. At lest not with the older books I read as a kid. As much as I like the 3e era of Dragonlance books (the only era of books I got for the setting, before that I only read novels) I think they could have just droped the sorcere altogether, and not have made the mystic at all. Having said that, they are still my two fav classes in D20/OGL/3e era. And that's saying something. The only sad part about the mystic is that technically its not Open, though I could see doing the same thing and even calling it a mystic visa vi 3pp. So you can see why I'm glad the mystic is getting some online love.

Lol. Been part of the work force for over 30 years now ... in fact I'm fixing to retire from one career in about 9 months.

Hey Congratulations Tiger Dave good for you. Have a Jolt Cola and a shot of JD on me.

I've looking over what he did with the Mystic and Sorcere, like most of it but I'd change a few things. Not sure why he did what he did with the sorcere, just addding Options? The school thing and everything. Most of the sorc. options can simply be added to a standard sorc. or perhaps even given as Mystic power options. On the other hand all the sorcerer options that have to do with Eelemental powers of any kind I think would work great for a Elementalist class. One of the few concepts that never got done well in d20, the only one I liked was a Prestige Class from Blackmoore. In any case I think I'd take the Elemental options and make a new class out of that. As for the Mystic I've created two today, and without having tested them, so far I see nothing wrong with the concepts. So again thanks for the link.

And just to give a cheep shot at them 4e boys. I wonder what the heros of the war of the lance would say if they saw a 4e Dragonborn Warlock come over the hill yelling "hey guys I want to join you all!" I can just hear older GM's grown.

I bet Raistlin would incinerate him faster than Gnimsh.

While we're on the topic of Dragonlance conversions, Tauren Kai-Jere has written an excellent article about using Pathfinder RPG dwarves in the Dragonlance setting. You can find it HERE.


To be fair, Raistlin didnt incinerate Gnish, he just fried him with lightening. :)
