Hey all, doing a post for all the techniques for my technician classes, the Hero (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?356181-The-Hero-(WIP)) and the Strategist (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?351466-The-Strategist-(WIP)). There's going to be a third later, the Champion, but for now, these are my two children.


Technique Compendium
ďMost of the people who come through this school barely learn how to swing a sword before getting kicked out, but those three...they made that blade sing in ways I never thought possible. Youíd have thought they were born with steel in their veins the way they handled a weapon, inventing new ways of battling even before they had finished mastering the last one. I fear the bastard that meets them on the battlefield.Ē Ovan Ruevellion, master at arms of the Knightís Soul training academy.

Technician Basics

The user of a technique is known as a technician. All saves for techniques are 10 + Ĺ the technicianís effective technician level + the key ability modifier of the style (Ex: A 3rd level Strategist / 4th level Fighter would have an effective technician level of 5). All techniques are extraordinary (EX) abilities unless stated otherwise.

Technicians may treat every two non levels as technician level for the purposes of their effective technician level, which tier of techniques for which they would qualify, and saves for their techniques.

Example: A 3rd level Strider / 6th level Fighter would be able to select Intermediate Tier Techniques, have their techniques treated as though they were being used by a 6th level Strider for effects, and require saves for their techniques as though they were a 6th level Strider.)

In the same way, if a character takes levels in several different technician classes, each one is treated as a non technician in regards to the other class.

Example: A 4th level Strider / 6th level Strategist would be able to select Intermediate Tier Techniques for both Strategist and Strider techniques. The technician would have their Strider techniques treated as though they were being used by a 7th level Strider for effects and their Strategist techniques would treated as though they were being used by an 8th level Strategist. The technicianís Strider techniques would require saves as though they were a 6th level Strider, and the technicianís Strategist techniques would require saves as though they were an 8th level Strategist.

All techniques that a technician knows may be used to meet prerequisites regardless of the source of the technique.

Each class has different styles open to it, each one helping represent the classís style of play. Underlined styles are unique to the listed class:

Strategist: Peerless Sniper, Iron Defender, Scarlet Bravo, Clarion Commander, Titan Fist
Strider: Peerless Sniper, Scarlet Bravo, Titan Fist, White Fang, Elemental Incarnate, Shadow Heart
Templar: Peerless Sniper, Iron Defender, Titan Fist, Steel Gospel

Technician Styles

Peerless Sniper
Key Ability: Wisdom
Classes: Strategist, Strider, Templar
Signature Weapons: Longbow or Musket

Masters of both bow and firearm alike, the Peerless Archer sets themselves apart from others of their ilk with a masterful understanding of the art of sniping. Rarely is there a target that is beyond the skillful eye of one so dedicated. Peerless Snipers pride themselves on their ability to make precise shots which would cripple their targets, firing at ranges which would seem impossible by the most skilled of their kind.

Iron Defender
Key Ability: Constitution
Classes: Strategist, Templar
Signature Weapons: Long Spear or Shield

Those who harden their bodies and their souls often find comfort in the incredible defensive capabilities afforded to them by the Iron Defender style. Able to take blows that would fell a normal warrior without flinching, those of this style are known to create a bulwark of defense that is impassable by all, drawing in the strikes of their enemies and shrugging off all but the most dire of attacks made against them.

Scarlet Bravo
Key Ability: Dexterity
Classes: Strategist, Strider
Signature Weapons: Rapier or Dagger

A sense of honor and panache radiates from those who come from the ranks of the Scarlet Bravo. Never satisfied simply with battling, technicians of this specialty are duelist at heart, enjoying the intimate clash of steel which results from a truly noble duel. Masters of mobility, it's rare for a Scarlet Bravo to be unable to meet their foes in honorable combat, instead bringing the fight to all those who would besmirch their honor.


Clarion Commander
Key Ability: Charisma
Classes: Strategist
Signature Weapons: Long Sword or Great Sword

For some, true victory is inspiring those around them to the heights of their potential, allowing their fellows to overcome any challenge set before them. For the Clarion Commander, there is no chance of defeat for those who can work as one, leading entire armies as easily as a small specialized unit upon the battlefield. Rare is the individual who is incapable of feeling inspired by these individuals, often causing foes to question their own allegiances.

Titan Fist
Key Ability: Strength
Classes: Strategist, Strider, Templar
Signature Weapons: Unarmed Strike or Cestus

Unable to stay away from the fray, a Titan Fist is one who has forsaken weapons as well as their own survival to crush anyone before them. Reckless to the extreme, those of this style have learned how to impart an incredible amount of punishment against any who would challenge them at the risk of their own bodies, coming back from combats covered in scars and other wounds simply to ensure victory.

Note on Titan Fist style: All Titan Fist techniques as well as attacks granted by the Titan Fist style may only be used with an unarmed strike, gauntlet, spiked gauntlet, brass knuckles, cestus, or rope gauntlet.

Elemental Incarnate
Key Ability: Constitution
Classes: Strider
Signature Weapons: Scimitar or Unarmed Strike

A nexus point of the elemental fury that roils within the plane itself, the Elemental Incarnate is a barely restrained technician who manages to channel their immense power into the elements themselves, wielding them as weapons as effortlessly as others would wield a sword. Training their bodies to be able to handle the immense strain that such powers place upon them, Elemental Incarnates are forces of nature given physical form.

Note on the Elemental Incarnate style: Whenever a technician selects their first Elemental Incarnate technique, they must select one element, becoming their signature element. This signature element decides what element the technician may use with their Elemental Incarnate techniques. If a technician has the Elemental Incarnate style with the Striderís Calling class ability, they instead select two elements, being able to use both elements interchangeably.

White Fang
Key Ability: Wisdom
Classes: Strider
Signature Weapons: Natural Attack or Kukri

Barely restrained instinct and brutal power surge through those of this style, trained reflexes allowing those of the White Fang style to tear through opponents with animistic fury and raw force. Claws as sharp as razors and blades as swift as silence, the weapons of a White Fang leave terrible wounds and bloody swaths across the field of battle, causing those who witness such actions of wanton carnage to lose their nerve.

Shadow Heart
Key Ability: Intelligence
Classes: Strider
Signature Weapons: Dagger or Hand Crossbow

The practitioners of the Shadow Heart style would be legends among their field...if any of them were foolish enough to let themselves be known. Fading into the shadows to strike at opponents when they least suspect it, the weapons of these hidden technicians pierce through any defense, allowing them to target even the most stalwart of foes. Vanishing without a trace, the only evidence of these technicians is the trail of bodies left in their wake.

Steel Gospel
Key Ability: Charisma
Classes: Templar
Signature Weapons: Long Sword or Lance

Faith is the ultimate weapon in the Steel Gospel's arsenal, using the power of the divine to strike down enemies and leave the bodies of heathens as a reminder to all those who would cross their power. Able to restore the health of the faithful, the Steel Gospel excels in providing both succor and punishment, trusting their faith to guide them as they pass judgement on those who stand against themselves and their ideals..

Technique Primer

Some techniques may only be done as (or benefit, in the case of augments) melee or ranged attack, and will be given a (Melee) or (Ranged) tag if this is the case. Each Strategy comes in one of the following categories:

Assault: Assaults may be done as either an attack as a standard action or as the first attack in a full round attack, and the listed ability of an assault only activates with a successful attack roll. An Assault may not be done with a Tactic. Assaults may be done as attacks of opportunity.

Tactic: Tactics require either a move, standard, or full round action as stated in their description, having a large variety of effects.

Augment: Augments are done as a swift action, affecting either the technician or their allies for one round unless otherwise stated in the techniqueís description. A creature may only benefit from one augment of each tier (beginner, intermediate, expert, and master) at a time.

Counter: Counters are done as immediate actions in response to actions done by others.

Mastery: All techniques will have an additional effect, which may only be used if the technician's chosen calling matches the style of the technique (Ex: Only a technician which selects the Titan Fist calling may ignore all damage reduction and hardness at 5th level with the Stone Shattering Fist technique), or if it has been selected with the technicianís Style Dabbler class feature

Yeah, once I get to work on the Templar class, but that'll be in a little bit, once I get more info on the first two classes.

I generally update the techs and such on friday since that's the day before my game, and I show my players these classes here.
