I don't want to be Ninja anymore. Why can't I rebuild my PFS Ninja for free.

I understand that "There is no Unchained Ninja."
I also understand that a Ninja is a rogue for Multiclassing and Archetypes.
If that is the case I don't see why they just can't make the ruling.
There is no Unchained Ninja, however you can rebuild your Ninja into Unchained Rogue during this free rebuild time.
Why is this so hard?

This should be posted in the Pathfinder Society forum, not in the RPG Rules Question. Flagging for move.


How can I move it there?

Or just join the thread there already in progress.


No FLite that thread is about why an Unchained Ninja should be allowed. I don't care about that one bit. But if Ninja is an alternate rogue than I should be able to use this rebuild to rebuild my Ninja to the Unchanged rogue. Not the same issue.

As far as I know there's no rule saying "that a Ninja is a rogue for Multiclassing and Archetypes." But it's been assumed. If it's not really a thing and a ninja is its own thing unrelated to the rogue. Then you're essentially saying, "I DON'T WANT TO BE (Slayer, archaeologist, ranger, investigator, etc) ANYMORE. WHY CAN'T I REBUILD MY PFS (Slayer, archaeologist, ranger, investigator, etc) FOR FREE."

That is why it's so hard.

If the ninja is an archetype to rogue then you should be able to use this rebuild to rebuild your Ninja to the Unchanged rogue.

If the ninja is it's own class that has a lot of features of the rogue and just has a rule that you can't multiclass ninja/rogue. Then you shouldn't be able to use this rebuild to rebuild my Ninja to the Unchanged rogue. As a Slayer has a lot of the same features as the rogue and doesn't count for the free rebuild.

This is why it comes down to the same issue.

You can't play an "Unchained Ninja" because it doesn't exist. There are already rules for retraining a character because "I'm tired of playing it." Those retraining rules have a cost, as well they should. Retraining for free is for new characters (never played at level 2) or characters who have the rules changed out from under them.

"I'm bored" is neither of those.

This isn't a request to retrain to an Unchained Ninja. It's a request to retrain a Ninja to an Unchained Rogue.

You can retrain rogue into unchained rogue or vice versa. You can not retrain ninja into unchained rogue unless you want to use the retraining rules already established.
