In my group, I find that one of my early characters (my first one, actually) is in need of an overhaul. Not too surprising, as I've learned a lot more about both making characters and where I wanted that character (a Halfling Sorceress/Dragon Disciple) to go.
I could just ask the DM to let me try it, but I remember there being an item in a book that could be used to change or alter a character's class. I remember the page it was on having a picture of Seoni as a warrior. I thought it was in the Game Masters' Guide, but I looked through that and couldn't find it.
So what book was it in?
I am, but I kinda want to have an official backup, as it were, to justify it in case he doesn't feel right letting me arbitrarily do it.
Plus, that was a pretty cool picture and I want to see it again.
He's perfectly justified in denying your "official source" if he feels it doesn't fit in the campaign. Despite what some might think, RAW is not a club to beat your DM into submisssion.
What the earlier poster was referring to is the rebuilding rules in Ultimate Campaign.
Hourglas of Transfiguration, from Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Artifacts and Legends.
For what it's worth it's listed under METAGAME ARTIFACTS on d20pfsrd
Alright, thanks a lot.
Storywise, I'm not sure if that's what I want. I don't like thinking alternate selves as just being one and the same as the original but with a few differences. Maybe I should just ask to do it outright, or maybe discuss a lesser version if he wants an in-story basis.
You could, with your GM's okay, make it an interesting bit of a training montage. Your character could realize that while they have achieved a certain level of power through their adventures, they are capable of much more. The character could then set out on a course of intensive training (either roleplayed, or done as a training montage) to refine and reinvent themselves to bring out their true potential. This may leave the character weaker in areas they were once strong, but a character having lost some capabilities they once had due to PLOT or CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT is not a new thing in fantasy storytelling.
