what the heck is this thing?

Well given that he said he would explain later, we can't know for sure. However, if I were to venture a guess, it is a "martial" class focusing more on speed and movement than attacking. I'll check back when he updates his post.

Wouldn't the class be a 'xiake'? Wuxia is the genre, Xiake the characters. see Wikipedia on the subject

Here's a table for this class:

I find this class to be overpowered even though I can hardly understand it. I mean, come on! 'I hit you with a drop of water four times because of my extra attacks, adding my immense strength to each one, plus all my enchantments, and wielding it with both hands, thus dealing 200 damage.'

Use swordsage. Fits it much better.

"Wuxia" is the genre that you commonly see in a lot of Hong Kong martial art movies. Think of it as what the monk class was based off of, and you're kind of close. (Except without all the religious elements in it)

I don't like this class, personally. It's too powerful to begin with, there is too little flavor to it, and it is not actually capable of replicating a lot of the nuances that is of the wuxia genre.

Check out the Swordsage from Tome of Battle. It works really well for what you're going with here.

NOOOOO!!! I had a PrC like this set up for a week or so; I was tweaking it. Mind-reading I tell you!!! :smallbiggrin:

2007-01-12, 07:26 PM
There are a few psions on these fourums.

2007-01-12, 08:48 PM
I was going for a more powerful sort of way (bullrushing and improved flurry of blows); such as when confirming a critical with an unarmed attack, your opponent suffers the effect of a forceful hand.
