View Full Version : Is there any Incarnum homebrew out there?

2011-10-28, 10:40 PM
I was recently invited to a game online and i have been trying to dig up a solid concept for a character when i decided to play a homebrew class with the Inheritor (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=213704) bloodline whose "inheritance" was bladesworn (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=185231), which taps a bit into incarnum. So this made me want to break out my magic of incarnum book once again but then after reading through the base classes and i wanted to play incarnate but the only good, evil, chaotic, or lawful and neutral other kinda cheesed me off.. then the soulborn class doesn't look all that good either and fluff wise totemist just doesn't fit. and so now i turn to this community in hope of their being some "new" incarnum base classes or class fixes...

Btw i like to play Chaotic good

There are quite a few, including a Pathfinder rewrite going on right now on these boards. In addition, you can find several more pieces of Incarnum homebrew here (http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=9922.0) (just search for Incarnum or the Incarn tag). I know there's at least one Soulborn rewrite (http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=9814) in there. Here's another Soulborn (http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=3898.0). The Demented One also has an Incarnum/ToB (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4651801) combo base class.

Um, not to be picky, but the bloodline is called Inherent. And as the maker of the Bladesworn feats, I can really only say that Soul's Edge is the only Bladesworn feat that taps into Incarnum. However, if you're really into Incarnum, I've made two Incarnum Homebrews that can help:

1)The Soulbred Bloodline (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214694)- A bloodline for those born to wield Incarnum. It's a good choice if you like Incarnum and don't mind picking up another bloodline. Also, if you go with the major bloodline you get an Archetype Soulmeld.

2)Archetype Soulmelds (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=192424)- If you don't mind taking a feat to learn a soulmeld, this is definitely for you. Basically, they're powered-up soulmelds that grant a greater benefit than normal soulmelds do.

Considering that there's a core base class that's dedicated to Good but required to be Lawful, saying that to be dedicated to some alignment component requires you to be Neutral on the other axis never made sense to me. Well, I didn't even need to think about the paladin to say "That doesn't make sense," but the paladin backed me up.

So, if it were me, I'd say that an Incarnate must still choose one component to be dedicated to but does not have to be otherwise neutral.
So you could make a CG Good Incarnate with all the Good class features who can shape only Good and unaligned soulmelds, or a CG Chaos Incarnate with all the Chaotic class features who can shape only Chaotic and unaligned soulmelds. As long as you don't try to get both the Good and Chaotic benefits, I don't see how it hurts. That would make an Incarnate's alignment restrictions "Anything but true neutral," which I think makes sense.

I guess technically that's homebrew. Maybe you could see if the DM will go for that.

EDIT to add: tl;dr version--Just ask if you can bend the alignment restriction.

Majora's Masks: A Soulmeld Project (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=152235)

Also, the Extended Homebrewer's Signature (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60676) has many incarnium based classes.
