    Default The Limit Dragoon [PEACH]

    This is an old class of mine I once made and posted on the WotC forums, based off the system made by Animana and thought I'd post up here too for more views and comments and constructive criticism. Plus to make sure that I would have all my homebrew in one location of course.

    Limit Breaks of the Limit Dragoon are in the second post.

    Two Limit Dragoons ready for battle

    “I love the smell of dragonfire in the morning. It certainly lifts the spirit.”
    - George Hennix, Limit Dragoon of the Brazen Order


    Eons ago a small group of people made a pact with the ancient powerful beings known as dragons. The dragons granted them their strength and a spiritual link with themselves, allowing the people to use extraordinary abilities. They became incredible jumpers, leaping high with the sky as their only limit. They founded an order of knights, and became known as the Limit Dragoons.

    MAKING A LIMIT DRAGOON
    As a limit warrior, the limit dragoon best make sure to stay buddies with a healer, as he’ll be taking plenty of damage, which he actually needs if he wishes to use Limit Breaks. Limit dragoons are incredible jumpers, and pair up with or against dragons nicely thanks to their abilities.
    Abilities: You benefit from a high Constitution for more hit points. The more damage you take the more you can use your Limit Breaks. Strength is also important to deal more damage and for higher jumps.
    Races: Limit dragoons aren’t a really common class, with only humans, elves and kobolds having a noteworthy number amongst them. A small number of Thri-Kreen Limit Dragoons have become true legends among the people of the desert.
    Alignment: Most dragoons have a tendency towards lawfulness, and some lean towards neutrality, mostly because they worship Bahamut, Tiamat and Sardior, but they can be of any alignment.
    Starting Gold: 5d4x10 (125 gp).
    Starting Age: As Ranger (PHB 109).

    Class Skills
    The limit dragoon’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (DEX), Bluff (CHA), Concentration (CON), Craft (INT), Diplomacy (CHA), Intimidate (CHA), Jump (STR), Listen (WIS), Knowledge (arcane) (INT), Ride (DEX), Search (INT), Spot (WIS), Survival (WIS), Tumble (DEX), Use Magic Device (CHA).
    Skills Per Day at 1st Level : (4 + Int)x4
    Skills Per Day at Each Additional Level : 4 + Int

    Weapon Proficiencies: Limit dragoons are proficient with all simple weapons, the short sword and all martial reach weapons. They're also proficient with all light, medium and heavy armour, but not shields.

    Limit Gauge:
    Limit dragoons use their Limit Break ability by depleting their Limit Gauge. Your Limit Gauge begins at zero. As you take damage, you add whatever amount of damage you took to your Limit Gauge. For example, if Kain takes 14 damage, he would add that to whatever he already had in his Limit Gauge. The maximum amount that your Limit Gauge can go to is your level times 10, to a max of 200 at level 20. Your limit gauge refreshes back to zero at each dawn, regardless of whether you've rested or not.
    When you use your Limit Breaks, subtract the cost of the Limit Break from your total. For example, Kain uses a second level Limit Break, which costs 10 points. If he had 42 points before using it, he now has 32. You only count damage taken in battle towards your Limit Gauge, not damage from other sources. Therefore, you don't add damage taken from a fall or bashing your head into a wall.

    Limits Known:
    A limit dragoon begins play knowing only one Limit Break. He learns another Limit Break at every even numbered level. He can use any Limit Break he knows at any time as long as he can pay for it from his Limit Gauge. First level Limits cost 5 points, second level Limits cost 10, third level Limits cost 20, fourth level Limits cost 40, fifth level Limits cost 80, and sixth level limits cost 160.

    Highest Limit:
    Limit dragoon know only first level Limit Breaks when they begin play. At every fourth level, the highest level they can use is increased by one (Level 2 at Class Level 4, 3 at level 8, 4 at level 12, 5 at level 16, and 6 at level 20). When a Limit Dragoon member learns a new Limit Break, he can choose the highest level he knows or any Limit Break lower.

    Leap of Faith:
    A limit dragoon adds his class level to any Jump checks he makes. For instance, if Kain is a Fighter 2/Limit Dragoon 6, he gets a +6 bonus on all his Jump checks.

    Lancet:
    A limit dragoon can, as a full round action, make a Jump check to jump high into the air and attack an opponent within an amount of feet of his starting position equal to his base land speed. However, he can only do this while wielding a polearm weapon two-handed and he must have a target to use Lancet. He deals +1d6 lancet damage for every 10 points of his Jump check result.

    For instance, if Kain got a Jump check result of 36, he would deal an extra +3d6 lancet damage to his opponent. The maximum extra Lancet damage dice starts at 1d6 and increases by 1d6 every odd limit dragoon level. The limit dragoon still has to make an attack roll to see if he hits his target.

    This lancet damage, like sneak attack, is not multiplied on a critical hit. For the purpose of Lancet, Jump checks made for high jumps count as Jump checks made for long jumps. Lancet counts as a charge for any effects that would affect a charge. However, opponents do not get attacks of opportunity against you when you use lancet, nor do you get a bonus on attack rolls or a penalty to AC.

    Dragon Companion:
    At second level a limit dragoon gains a special dragon spirit as a companion. The dragon companion is of Small size and resembles a specific kind of dragon that your order is allied with. Choose one true dragon whose alignment is within one step of yours. You and your dragon companion gain a +2 bonus on all Cha-based checks made against that kind of dragon. Your dragon companion starts out with 1 Hit Die and gains 1 Hit Die once you reach your fourth limit dragoon level, and every 2 limit dragoon levels thereafter. The starting stats for the dragon companion are as follows: Str 12, Dex 10, Con 12, Int 9, Wis 9, Cha 9.

    The dragon companion has a movement speed of 30 ft and a fly speed of 50 ft with average maneuverability. It has a natural armour bonus to AC of +2. The dragon companion has low-light vision, darkvision out to 60 feet, and a breath weapon that deals 1d6 points of damage per HD of the dragon (but only 1d4/HD if sonic). Choose one energy type (acid, cold, electricity, fire, sonic). The breath weapon deals damage of this type. The breath weapon is a line of 5 ft per HD of the dragon or a cone of 5 ft per 2 HD of the dragon (choose one). The dragon companion can use its breath weapon once every 1d4 rounds. If the dragon companion ever dies, it can be regained by praying and searching for one for 24 hours, like the druid's animal companion.

    Every time your dragon companion gains a Hit Die, it gains a special ability. You may choose from the following list of traits. Unless otherwise specified each trait may only be taken once:
    Adamantine Dragon: If you choose this trait, all natural weapons your dragon companion has are treated as adamantine weapons for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. Its claws and teeth gain a slight black sheen over them. If you choose this trait you cannot choose the Byeshk Dragon, Iron Dragon, Silver Dragon or Wraith Dragon traits.
    Aural: Your dragon companion gains blindsense out to 15 feet. This trait can only be taken if it already has the Dark-Eyed and Light-Eyed traits.
    Arcane Blood: Your dragon companion gains the ability to cast spells as a sorcerer of a level equal to half its Hit Dice. You may not take this trait in combination with Divine Soul or Psychic Mind.
    Aquatic: Your dragon companion gains the water breathing extraordinary ability. It can now breathe underwater indefinitely. It also gains a swim speed equal to its base land speed.
    Breath of Thunder: If you choose this trait, every time your dragon companion hits someone with its breath weapon, they must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + dragon companion’s HD + dragon companion’s Con mod) or become permanently deafened.
    Burrower: dragon companion gains a burrow speed of 20 feet.

    Dark-Eyed: Your dragon companion’s darkvision increases to 120 feet.
    Divine Soul: Your dragon companion gains the ability to cast spells as a cleric of a level equal to half its Hit Dice, minus the domains. You may not take this trait in combination with Arcane Blood or Psychic Mind.

    Large: Your dragon companion increases in size to Large. It gains +4 Str, +2 Con and +2 natural armour. It’s fly speed increases to 150 ft and its maneuverability decreases to clumsy. This trait can only be taken if the dragon companion has 7 HD or more and it must already have the Medium trait.
    Light-Eyed: Your dragon companion’s low-light vision improves greatly. Your dragon companion can now see four times as far as a human in low-light conditions.
    Magical Heart: Your dragon companion gains DR 5/magic and its natural weapons count as magic weapons for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction.

    Spellcasting Apprentice: Your dragon companion can cast all 0-level spells from the sorcerer and cleric lists 3 times per day each.
    Stealthy: The shadows seem to welcome your draconic friend, and its steps seem supernaturally silent. Your dragon companion gains a +4 bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks.
    Telepathic: You gain a telepathic bond with your dragon companion. When you are both on the same plane, you can communicate with each other through your thoughts.
    Transformer: Your dragon companion gains the ability to change itself into a child version of a member of your own race. If the dragon companion is Medium, it instead takes the form of an adolescent. If the dragon companion is Large, it takes the form of an adult.
    Unholy Breath: From the moment you choose this trait, your dragon companion’s breath weapon deals half profane damage and half the damage type it normally dealt.
    Wraith Dragon: If you choose this trait, all natural weapons your dragon companion has are treated as wraithiron weapons and gain all their benefits. Its claws and teeth gain a slight ethereal glow over them. If you choose this trait you cannot choose the Adamantine Dragon, Byeshk Dragon, Iron Dragon or Silver Dragon traits.

    Uncanny Dodge:
    Starting at third level, a limit dragoon can react to danger before his senses would normally allow him to do so. He retains his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, he still loses his Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.
    If a limit dragoon already has uncanny dodge from a different class (a limit dragoon with four levels in rogue, for example), he automatically gains improved uncanny dodge (see below) instead.

    The Sky is the Limit:
    Starting at first level, all jumps made by a limit dragoon count as running jumps. In addition, armour check penalties no longer apply to his Jump checks.

    Improved Uncanny Dodge:
    A limit dragoon of seventh level or higher can no longer be flanked; he can react to opponents on opposite sides of him as easily as he can react to a single attacker. This defense denies characters to sneak attack him by flanking him unless the attacker has at least four more HD than the target does.

    Safe Landing:
    Upon attaining level ten, you can treat large falls as though they were nothing. For every level you have in limit dragoon, you can fall an extra five feet without taking damage. A level 16 limit dragoon would treat falls 80 feet shorter than they actually are, for example.

    Mettle:
    At twelfth level and higher, a Limit Dragoon can resist magical and unusual attacks with great willpower or fortitude. If he makes a successful Will or Fortitude save against an attack that normally would have a lesser effect on a successful save, he instead can opt to completely negate the effect. An unconscious or sleeping Limit Dragoon does not gain the benefit of mettle.

    Berserk:
    Upon reaching level 20, a limit dragoon doubles the amount of damage they recieve when adding it to their Limit Gauge. For example, if Zack takes 54 damage from an attack, he adds 108 points to his Limit Gauge.

    PLAYING A LIMIT DRAGOON
    "A fire burns within my soul. The roaring fire of a dragon."
    A limit dragoon is not a very common figure in everyday society, but they are easily recognizable. In that manner, one could compare them to paladins, but with an allegiance to dragons rather than The Seven Mounting Heavens of Celestia. To people not an enemy, the limit dragoons are heroic figures that can provide great aid. Several orders of dragoons exist, each allied with a certain kind of dragon, such as the Order of the Platinum Scale, which is allied with gold, silver and bronze dragons, and the Order of Black Horn, which is an evil order allied with the chromatic dragons. Members of these orders often wear armour in the colours of their dragon allies, sometimes even dragonscale armour to further their connection with the draconic. Some evil limit dragoons choose for their dragon companion to have five heads as a sign to show their devotion to Tiamat.
    Other Classes: You get along with all sorts of other classes. Limit dragoons like to stay friendly with clerics who can constantly heal their wounds so that they can fill up their Limit Gauges without having to worry about being too low on HP. You also enjoy the company of magic users whose magic abilities can provide some good assistance, especially sorcerers because you feel a kinship with them due to their link with dragons. And of course you also don’t mind the help other combat classes can provide you to take a foe down.
    Combat: Limit dragoons stay in the front lines, voluntarily taking the brunt of damage so they can fill up their Limit Gauge. You use your evasive abilities to avoid taking too much damage if you start to get low on health or if your Limit Gauge is full. Your Limit Breaks are useful for dealing larger amounts of damage than normally to end the battle more quickly.
    Advancement: If your focus is on Limit Breaks, a good idea might be to go for the whole 20 levels for the Berserk ability. It will ensure that you can use Limits as often as you want. Otherwise, combat should be your main focus, with support coming from your dragon companion. Barbarian is always a good choice so you can rage to gain extra strength and hit points. Some ranger levels with dragons as a favoured enemy would combine great with the limit dragoon.

    NPC Reaction
    Common folk can easily recognize a limit dragoon by their dragon companion. Most people fear or respect limit dragoons for their connection with dragons, and the ones that are allied with chromatic dragons are especially feared due to their great cruelty and cunning. Some charismatic dragoons turn out to be great leaders and often rule lands bordering dragon territories, either because they are allied with the dragons, or because they fight against them.

    Default Re: The Limit Dragoon [PEACH]

    NEW FEATS

    A Stick has Two Ends
    You have trained with reach weapons a lot, and learned make good use of both ends.
    Benefit: You may use reach weapons as double weapons. The second end deals damage as a club and threatens 5 ft around you.

    Alley-Oop!
    Prerequisites: Lancet class feature, DEX 13
    Your teammates know you well enough to know when they may need to provide an extra boost in height.
    Benefit: If you are below a friendly target and you make a jump check to reach their height, they may use a standard action to allow you to make an additional jump check from their height to continue moving upward.
    Special: For someone to assist you with this, you must have used Lancet in at least 5 encounters with them.

    All the Way Through
    Through a strong and more well-positioned leap and aim of your weapon, you create a lot of gore as you pierce your enemy’s body.
    Prerequisite: Lancet +5d6, Power Attack
    Benefit: By taking a -20 penalty on your Jump check, you can deal 1d4 Con damage to your target in addition to the normal damage. You can’t use this feat more than once per day on the same target.

    Bouncing Off the Walls
    Prerequisite: Lancet class feature, New Gravity limit break
    When making grand leaps in confined spaces, you use your momentum and the walls to your advantage.
    Benefit: When you have the New Gravity limit break active, if you make a Lancet attack, the bonus increases by one die type when leaping from a wall or ceiling (+1d8 instead of +1d6). If the ceiling is more than 30 feet above your target, increase the die type by two.

    Distant Lancet
    With a little bit of a start, you managed to hit from further away
    Benefit: You can, as part of your Lancet, move up to your movement speed in a straight line towards your target before making your jump. You get a +4 bonus on your Jump check and can hit your target if it is within a distance of twice your base land speed away from the position you were at when you jumped.
    You can only use this feat while wearing light or no armour.

    Dragoon Arcanist
    Prerequisites: Dragon companion class feature, must have a familiar, level 3rd
    Benefit: Your familiar leaves you and instead your dragon companion gains the benefits your familiar would get. If your effective sorcerer/wizard level for purposes of determining the strength of your familiar increases, so do the benefits your dragon companion gets. Your dragon companion additionally gains 1 hp per Limit Dragoon level you have and you gain a +3 bonus to Listen and Spot checks while your dragon companion is within 5 ft of you.

    Dragoon of Nature
    Prerequisites: Animal companion class feature, dragon companion class feature, level 3rd
    Benefit: Your animal companion leaves you and instead your dragon companion gains the benefits your animal companion would get. If your effective druid level for purposes of determining the strength of your animal companion increases, so do the benefits your dragon companion gets.

    Knock Out the Magic
    Your weapon has been infused with the magic in the blood of those it has pierced, which you can use to your advantage.
    Prerequisite: Lancet +4d6, Knowledge (arcane) 1 rank
    Benefit: By taking a -20 penalty on your Jump check, you can lower a target’s spell resistance by 5 (minimum 0) for 10 rounds if you hit. If you use this feat a second time on a target before 10 rounds have elapsed, the effect of the first use expires.

    Made Holey
    Your aim is amazing and you can strike precisely to impede your targets more.
    Prerequisite: Lancet +4d6
    Benefit: By taking a -15 penalty on your Jump check, your successful Lancet attack imposes a -2 penalty on either the target’s Strength OR Dexterity checks, as well as on any Strength- OR Dexterity-based skill checks, for the rest of the day. You must choose whether to affect Strength or Dexterity before making the attack.


    NEW LIMIT BREAKS

    Level 1 Limit Breaks:
    Lesser Fusion: You merge together with your dragon companion. You gain the draconic template. The fusion lasts for 1 minute per Limit Dragoon level. This is a supernatural ability.

    Level 2 Limits
    Ancient Circle
    :
    Yourself and all allies within 30 feet gain DR5 against any attacks from enemies with the Dragon type for the remainder of the encounter.

    Dragon Killer:
    You gain an untyped bonus to damage equal to your WIS modifier against enemies with the Dragon type for the remainder of the battle.

    Level 3 Limits
    Defy the Earth
    :
    For 1 round/level, you gain a fly speed equal to your base land speed. Additionally you get a bonus on your jump checks equal to half your base land speed.

    Level 4 Limits
    Dimensional Step:
    As an immediate action, you may use dimension door, as the spell, on yourself with a caster level equal to your levels in Limit classes. If you end up adjacent to an opponent when you use this ability, you may make an attack as a free action against that opponent. They are flat-footed against this attack.

    Improved Ancient Circle:
    As Ancient Circle, but the DR increases to 10.

    Level 5 Limit Breaks:
    Dragon Lord:
    You become immune to any breath attacks for the remainder of this encounter.

    Hammer It In:
    Make a Jump check for Lancet as normal and resolve Lancet as normal. Then make another Jump check. If this Jump check exceeds your previous check by 5 or more, you perform Lancet again, but the maximum damage decreases by 1 die. Keep making these checks until you fail or roll a natural 20 for your Jump check. On a 20 you deal critical damage and stun your oponent for a number of rounds equal to the nuber of attacks before the natural 20 occured.

    Greater Fusion: You merge together with your dragon companion. You gain the half-dragon template, including wings regardless of your size, which also grants you a +10 bonus on Jump checks. The fusion lasts for 1 minute per Limit Dragoon level. This is a supernatural ability.

    Level 6 Limit Breaks:
    Time Flies: Your dragon companion increases two size categories in size, gains +8 Str, +4 Con, +2 Int, +2 Wis, +2 Cha, fly speed increases by 100 ft and maneuverability decreases to clumsy. It's breath weapon gains 4 extra damage dice. If it has swim or burrow speeds it doubles those speeds and also gains tremorsense out to 15 ft. This transformation lasts for 3 rounds. This is a supernatural ability.



    The following is all work of Animana, praised be his brain. Only Limit Breaks the Limit Dragoon has access to are replicated here. For more information on the Limit Break system and other Limit Breaks, check the Limit Dragoon class entry or the link to Animana's original thread in the first post.

    You can move then attack and keep moving. You can continue to move and attack for however many attacks you have left in the round as long as you have some movement left.

    Bulwark Defense:
    You gain a +5 deflection bonus to your AC for 1 round/level.

    You cure yourself of 3d10 damage. This is a standard action.
    Safeguard:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Aid:

    Tormenting Triad:
    You gain an additional three attacks this round, each at your highest attack bonus.


    LEVEL 6 LIMITS
    Level 6 Limits cost 160 points out of your Limit Gauge reserves.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Countless Cuts:
    You double the number of attacks you get this round. You also double any additional attacks from haste or similar effects.
    Ferocious Frenzy:
    Your Limit Gauge fills up to full after using this Limit (essentially, it just fills your Limit Gauge to it's maximum, but you have the 160 points first). For the remainder of the battle, all limits cost half their normal cost. This counts as a swift action, but does not count against your limit of one Limit Break. It still counts against your number of swift actions, however you may use standard action Limit Breaks. You may only use this Limit Break once per day.
    Lucky! :
    Each time you make an attack this round, flip a coin. If it comes up heads, you make another attack at the same attack bonus and flip the coin again, continuing until you flip tails. When you flip tails, you do not get an extra attack and you move to your next attack, if you have any left available.
    Ruining Strike:
    You add an additional 20 points to all damage rolls you make this round.
    Self Stasis:
    You're immune to all effects, both helpful and harmful, until the end of your next turn. This is an immediate action that you can use out of your initiative in response to danger.
    Sure Death:
    All attacks you make this round gain a +20 bonus to attack rolls.
    Umbra Ego:
    You split yourself into two for this round. Each version of yourself has half the hit points you had before the split. If one of you dies, the other becomes the permanent you. Each of you can perform any Limit Breaks you know in addition to this one for this round. At the end of the round, the clone disappears and you reclaim any HP that they had left. If you or your clone was healed, you do not get more HP than your maximum amount.

    I don't see why that is necessary. I also tend to loathe it when people just link to something else without providing any comments on the work itself. That it already starts here in the first reply I receive... kind of hurts.

    Because there is a massive amount of stuff on this board, and the real indexes keep failing due to the size of the project. For this reason I am settling for going for taking baby steps towards promoting wikipedia like cross-linking. Also, it helps people not repeat the mistakes of the past if they can see where people have gone with similar ideas before*. I have occasionally felt a little uncertain about it, but you are actually the first person to complain. Note that I believe I added a link to from my work back to yours as well(ABOVE my actual PrC). Putting the reference early in the thread makes it easier for those who might be looking through things years from now.

    *As such it qualifies as a form of assistance to your efforts.


    Actually, if you feel like it, this discussion (of cross-linking in general) could be something that might deserve its own dedicated thread.

    Some questions:
    -So limit breaks are going to be different than maneuvers/stances?
    -For lancet +10d6, the prerequisite 100 foot jump should have a DC of like 400. Should the dragoon get a jump check multiplier?
    -Does a dragoon lose extra attacks when using lancet?

    The Sky is the Limit should be listed before Dragon Companion. I initially thought you'd only added it to the table and forgot to write it down.

    And the table has a few issues: see the "BarrelLancet" entries as well as the "Dragon Companion (1 HD)" bits where it should have been incrementing.

    Yah. Needs an in-class bonus to Jump checks, otherwise the higher-DC Lancet bonuses are impractical. Also, what happens if the space you're fighting in doesn't include room for the distance called for in your Jump check?

    Ah. Alright then.

    I, myself, have a hand of linking to other works in my homebrew posts before showing the actual thing I've worked on, to earlier related works of mine or others' works that inspired me to homebrew something. Hence the links up there, even though they might not link to GiantITP threads.

    Yes. I will see to what extent I will put up the Limit Break system, as it is not my own. Animana, the creator of the system, will be appropriately credited.

    -For lancet +10d6, the prerequisite 100 foot jump should have a DC of like 400. Should the dragoon get a jump check multiplier?
    Under Lancet it says "For the purpose of Lancet, Jump checks made for high jumps count as Jump checks made for long jumps."

    -Does a dragoon lose extra attacks when using lancet?
    Yes.

    The Sky is the Limit should be listed before Dragon Companion. I initially thought you'd only added it to the table and forgot to write it down.
    I listed it after Dragon Companion to go in alphabetical order, as is usual with these things. If that really is problematic, I suppose I can change that.

    And the table has a few issues: see the "BarrelLancet" entries as well as the "Dragon Companion (1 HD)" bits where it should have been incrementing.
    Thanks for noting that. Fixing now/Fixed.

    Leap of Faith = bonus to Jump checks.

    If it doesn't include that room... then you've purposefully screwed yourself over as a Limit Dragoon.

    Seriously though, the Limit Breaks are sort-of the fix to that, I'll put those up as fast as I can.

    We both know that tight battlespaces are a contrivance of the DM, not the player. But I was speaking more to the idea that the class features should specifically address the possibility of using the jump attack in a confined space and set expectations for what would happen under those circumstances.

    Added Limit Dragoon-specific limit breaks and 1st level limit breaks. Once I got levels 2-6 appropriately formatted, I'll add those as well.

    Well, if there really would be no other option, I'd say the DM could/should rule that the Limit Dragoon could leap off a wall instead and get similar effect. Really, to me it seems more like a contrivance than anything else. The Limit Dragoon coul also just limit himself to leaping up to the highest available point and just deal a little less Lancet damage, or simply focus on his limit breaks.

    The ceiling problem would be why my version included extra-dimensional aspects to the jump starting at 2nd level (of a PrC). EDIT:I got ninja-ed by the person with the idea of bouncing off a wall so I had no way of considering that option when I original wrote this post, but I like that idea. (End of EDIT)

    See what I mean about "prior art"?

    The stuff in the following spoiler I wrote up, then realized it looked a bit self-serving, but I couldn't quite bring myself to delete it. It comes down to the following: these are close enough we can learn from eachother, but far enough appart that trying to say that one makes the other pointless or that one is better than the other is foolish.
    Spoiler
    Show
    I also want to more explicitly note that this is, in general, a noticably different animal from mine. For one thing PrC vs Base Class. For another, unless one of his limit breaks does something along those lines, M-Bark is leaving out the entire tactical reason Jump existed in the games I am most familiar with. As Mr Myiagi (sp?) says: "Best block, no be there." Of course, leaving it in requires some serious bending of the laws of physics, but that was the route I took. Having been that shameless, I went ahead and gave them item creation abilities of a very specific nature to as a nod to the easy availability of in-combat healing, revivification, and magical energy regaining in the games I am familiar with. This is either pretty genius, or a horrible horrible mistake(and I don't care which)... All of which is to say that there are enough differences that people will chose what they will chose, and any argument about which is better would be of the "Batman or Superman?/Kirk vs Picard?" level of pointless.

    A Dragoon with a Dragon is better than a Dragoon without a Dragon.

    I will try and PM him on the WotC forums later, link him here and all that. Perhaps he might even consider bringing over his things to show them here - he said he was converting his Limit classes to 4E and all, though I haven't seen that, sadly.

    Thanks. I tend to like the simple solutions, though sadly I often seem to make up more convoluted ones in real life.

    The stuff in the following spoiler I wrote up, then realized it looked a bit self-serving, but I couldn't quite bring myself to delete it. It comes down to the following: these are close enough we can learn from eachother, but far enough appart that trying to say that one makes the other pointless or that one is better than the other is foolish.
    Spoiler

    I also want to more explicitly note that this is, in general, a noticably different animal from mine. For one thing PrC vs Base Class. For another, unless one of his limit breaks does something along those lines, M-Bark is leaving out the entire tactical reason Jump existed in the games I am most familiar with. As Mr Myiagi (sp?) says: "Best block, no be their." Of course, leaving it in requires some serious bending of the laws of physics, but that was the route I took. Having been that shameless, I went ahead and gave them item creation abilities of a very specific nature to as a nod to the easy availibility of in-combat healing, revivification, and magical energy regaining in the games I am familiar with. This is either pretty genius, or a horrible horrible mistake(and I don't care which)... All of which is to say that there are enough differences that people will chose what they will chose, and any arguement about which is better would be of the "Batman or Superman?/Kirk vs Picard?" level of pointless.
    There are, of course, many ways to go about creating something that exists in another media. If we were both trying to stat up Batman, Superman, Kirk or Picard - just to reference your spoilerblock there - we'd likely come up with wildly different things. (Assuming they could all reasonably be statted with available 3.5 material.)

    That having been said... when you get done with this, what would you say to a "remix" that combines my jump mechanics with your... everything else?
    It would be an interesting thing to do, though I am not sure how to go about it. We could always start from the bottom and create Dragoon-related material first, rather than an actual Dragoon-combo of our things? Races and weapons might be an idea.

    It was partly an original thing, partly (which came after the idea of doing that) from FFXI, where Dragoons have actual dragon pets. Plus, a Limit Dragoon using the Medium and Large qualities to get a ride-able dragon companion could just fly overhead and jump from above on his targets, or have a higher starting point for even-higher located foes to be Lancetted.

    Well, my PrC includes my attempts to stat out the Burmecian race. I suppose doing Ronso and Moogles would be possible (but the Moogles at least have almost certainly been done before on these boards...) As for weapons, from what I remember of FF IX, I would TEND to think that that would mostly come down to some special powers that have a spell effect on a critical (for the add-effect) and that the rest would just be standard sort of Bane/Holy/Lawful/Chaotic/+1d6 Energy damage stuff. Really, the D&D weapons system is incredibly versatile, so their isn't much need to create stuff from scratch I don't think. Now if you wanted to stat out specific weapons from the various games, that would be a thought.

    Well, I was moreso thinking about weapons that aren't already in DnD of course, and not as much the ones that just have a magical enhancement on them. Might be tough to find some that aren't already stattable in DnD though...

    But yeah, I've seen Moogles done at least twice, and Zeta-Kai has the Ronso covered, but eh, one can always do the others. I was actually thinking of picking up my other old project from the WotC boards that involves that.

    A possibility, but it seems to me that our projects not so much overlap as they tend to compliment one another. Like me doing races, you doing monsters, then me making classes, you making weapons, etc.

    Haven't seen any FF PrCs by either of us yet though... (?)

    Yet.

    Seeing as I am working on Hero's Edge again, I've got the rough outline of three PrCs in place: Follower of the First Disciple, Follower of the Second Disciple, and Follower of the, you guessed it, Third Disciple.

    Limit dragoons use their Limit Break ability by depleting their Limit Gauge. Your Limit Gauge begins at zero. As you take damage, you add whatever amount of damage you took to your Limit Gauge. For example, if Kain takes 14 damage, he would add that to whatever he already had in his Limit Gauge. The maximum amount that your Limit Gauge can go to is your level times 10, to a max of 200 at level 20. Your limit gauge refreshes back to zero at each dawn, regardless of whether you've rested or not.
    When you use your Limit Breaks, subtract the cost of the Limit Break from your total. For example, Kain uses a second level Limit Break, which costs 10 points. If he had 42 points before using it, he now has 32. You only count damage taken in battle towards your Limit Gauge, not damage from other sources. Therefore, you don't add damage taken from a fall or bashing your head into a wall.
    You should include a clause that having damage healed lowers a limit gauge so that limit gauge = (limit gauge) - (damage healed) and also returns to 0 once an encounter ends. Otherwise, it could be abused.

    If it isn't already abuseable, I suggest including the clause anyway and then increasing the power of the limit abilities. Because, c'mon. Rule of cool man... rule of cool.

    Healing removing limit points, and going away at the end of battle both go against the source material AFAIK (then again so does being able to spend less than all of it at once, so maybe that changed with later games). I think that being able to save them between battles MIGHT be worth removing, but the ability to heal without lowering the gauge probably needs to stay (and is less abusable I think). Check the rules for Crusaders about what qualifies as "damage from an enemy" if you can get a hold of them for language to prevent cheese.

    One good compromise is that they all go away at the end of any encounter that you spend any in.

    Sorry if this is less than clear, either have allergies or am getting over a cold... can't tell which.

    (and is less abusable I think).
    Less abuse-able?

    Hey, I'll put a level in rogue and then invest non-stop in tumble until ECL 10 or 11 where I have 13 ranks in tumble (+13 or +12 if nothing is invested in dexterity). Then I'll get a high constitution, move in and get damaged and then tumble withdraw out as a double move. Next round, I'll move in again strike out with a limit.

    Or I can make myself the tank of the party, soaking up damage and limit breaking at the same time.

    Also, I can strike out with a limit and expend all my points, get healed and then, with a readied action triggered upon being healed, leap 150ft. into the air - on the next round, I will land and strike out with another limit on a readied action (the 45 median falling damage earns me back my limit points).

    Or I can deliberately provoke AoOs by readying actions to strike out right after an opponent AoOs me.

    Maybe healing should only affect limit points if current health is less than (current limit points) total health?

    That way, If I'm 20/100 Hp and I have 30 limit points, I can get healed 50 damage and lose no limit points. I'll be at 70/100, but if I get, say 20 points, I have only 10 limit points and 90/100 Hp. So I have to remain somewhat wounded.

    And again, you can balance this by making limits more powerful.

    Also, I can strike out with a limit and expend all my points.

    Looks like quite a fun class-- Jumping Powah! One question... The Sky is the Limit... what do you mean there is no maximum to how high he can jump? I can jump 8 miles up a mountain, with one leap?
    Easily countered with a clause of 'must land in a space X spaces away (includes elevation)'. Ie. if I jump 100 miles into ionosphere and then land several hours later (falling damage is only

    I'm averse to making any changes to Animana's system. The way it works seems fine to me, and has been playtested in one of my older games. The only problems the players experienced was that some other Limit classes heavily depend on crafting their own weapons.

    Making it disappear between battles is an idea, though, I suppose. But making healing have the limit gauge go down is just silly. You'd need to have a Con of 20 or higher from the get-go to have more HP than your limit gauge has points, otherwise you'd be dead before it'd be full.

    At the time I made it I thought there was a limit to how high you can jump... not sure if there even is any, to be entirely honest. So technically you could, though I'd be pretty amazed by just the sight of an 8-mile mountain.

    You would? In D&D? Heck, in an extraplanar adventure, an 8 mile mountain is easy to find. That's not even talking about the famous famous mountain > 8 miles: Celestia!

    Well, there is a limit, but it is defined BY your jump check. So now I only make jump checks when I'm jumping forward? Does this mean that on a forward leap I can go 8 miles high to go forward 1 yard?

    I would, but then I haven't even seen 4-mile mountains, barring television and pictures.

    Yeah, I guess I should remove that last bit of The Sky Is The Limit. I think I included that because I thought Medium characters could never jump higher than 8 feet, but that is listed as how high a Medium character can reach to grab a ledge or something.


    ...also, I'm adding to Lancet that it can only be used with polearms. Forgot that bit, and it is a necessary bit.
