    Since another thread at least made me wonder that people may reply solely based on thread tags, let me just say that you folks are free to PEACH anything I make and what I make tends to be a WIP till I say otherwise. And this is 3.PF material.

    I don't include these tags for my own aesthetic reasons.

    Back in April of this year I embarked on making a base class that epitomized a concept I wanted to see played. This class was forged from the original concept of Monster classes and held to the framework that they used to be built. From this first piece of major homebrew came the Wyrd-blooded. The class was relatively well received by a few playgrounders and some even wanted to add to the class themselves.

    But time past and the class was slightly neglected before attention was brought back to it. But with that resurged attention came some more critiquing that made me realize that I had too rigidly followed the framework and that maintaining or reworking the class would be too much effort unless I built it back from the ground up.

    And so that's what I'm doing here. The Scion of Legacy is the successor to the Wyrd-blooded and I hope that it is as well received and works out far more than its ancestor class.



    Scion of Legacy



    ”You people and your quaint little categories.”
    -Captain Jack Harkness, Day One.

    Those who leave the safety of their homes to strike out on epic adventures almost always find their true strength through training or raw talent. Be they the savage barbarian from the hinterlands, the erudite wizard fresh from academy or the daring fighter who takes to the sword like a fish to water, this is true of them all. But not the Scion of Legacy. They draw their potency from something far more deep and primal, calling upon the strange gifts bequeathed to them by ancestors they may not know they ever had.

    Unlike those who can claim direct lineage from something monstrous or wonderful, the Scion of Legacy will never show anything but superficial connection to their ancestor. They may possess tiny horns hidden beneath their hair, longer than normal canine teeth or even a slight tint to their skin. But this does nothing to assuage how out of place they are amongst their own people or even other civilized folks. They are inherently of the strange and misunderstood and the more perceptive or sensitive can see this in them. Those who rise above the scorn, fear and hate that may come their way have inside them the greatness to become heroes; and those who fall under the heel of discrimination and hatred can metamorphose into monsters far greater than to what they call kin.

    Alignment: Any. Scions of Legacy have a natural proclivity towards the alignment of their ancestor but this is neither the rule nor the exception.

    Class Features

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    Scions of Legacy are proficient with all simple and martial weapons and all form of armors except shields.

    Path of the Inhuman
    Scions of Legacy are touched by the heritage of a creature far unlike their parent race. This powerful atavism grants them powers and skills that grant them abilities that outstrip those of their direct ancestors. When a Scion of Legacy takes their first level in this class they select one of the Paths of the Inhuman listed below. This selection is permanent and can not be changed at a later time.

    Monstrous Arts
    As Scions of Legacy gain more levels in this class they unlock and gain more powers that are innate to the monster that they have descended from. These powers or "Monstrous Arts" are denoted under each Path of the Inhuman and are gained as denoted on the table above. The abilities gained from each Monstrous Art are Extraordinary qualities unless denoted otherwise in their entry.

    Bonus Feat
    At 2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th and 18th levels the Scion of Legacy gains a bonus feat. This feat is selected from a list noted under their chosen Path of the Inhuman. The Scion of Legacy may select a feat even if they do not meet the prerequisites for it.

    Monstrous Skill (Ex)
    Scions of Legacy possess innate skill passed down through their genetics and as they unlock more power from their deep wellspring of racial prowess these skills blossom to higher heights. They may select two skills from the list provided under their chosen Path of the Inhuman. They receive a bonus to those selected skills equal to what is listed on the table above and those skills always count as class skills for the Scion of Legacy.

    Armored Hide (Ex)
    The flesh of a Scion of Legacy begins to toughen and harden as they delve into their birthright, their skin becoming more like finely crafted armor than the tender soft tissue of their progenitors. The Scion of Legacy gains natural armor equal to their Constitution modifier. This natural armor stacks with any other natural armor the Scion of Legacy possesses.

    Inhuman Body (Ex)
    The Scion of Legacy evolving physiology becomes bolstered and empowered, increasing their physical prowess. The Scion of Legacy gains a permanent increase to two of their physical ability scores which are noted in the Scion of Legacy's chosen Path of the Inhuman. The table above denotes the total bonus that the Scion of Legacy has accrued at each interval.

    Hybrid Potential
    As they follow a long journey of self discovery, a Scion of Legacy learns that they are not simply an atavism or a monster caged in the body of one of the base races but that they are a rare and deeply blended hybrid with traits unique to themselves.

    At 4th, 12th and 20th level the Scion of Legacy selects one of the Cleric Domains noted under their chosen Path of the Inhuman. The abilities granted by the domain are treated as supernatural and can not be suppressed by an anti-magic field or similar effect. The spells granted by the domain are treated as spell-like abilities that are usable once per day. The Scion of Legacy does not gain access to a Spell-like ability until their total Hit Dice is equal to twice that spell's level.

    We are Kin (Ex)
    The Scion of Legacy reaches deep within themselves, discovering through a long dormant genetic memory subtle ways to sway the moods of the creature they've descended from. The Scion of Legacy can improve the attitude of monsters of their chosen Path of the Inhuman's creature type. This ability functions like just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. The Scion of Legacy rolls a 1d20 and adds their total levels in this class and their Charisma modifier to the result.

    At 8th level the Scion of Legacy gets a +2 bonus to this check and this increases to +4 at 12th level.

    Inhuman Mind (Ex)
    The Scion of Legacy has found that as their body and very nature changes and warps that they go through great personal growth. The Scion of Legacy gains a permanent increase to two of their mental ability scores which are noted in the Scion of Legacy's chosen Path of the Inhuman. The table above denotes the total bonus that the Scion of Legacy has accrued at each interval.

    Thicker than Water (Ex)
    The Scion of Legacy's blood may be murkier than direct descendants of their ancestors, but it is not completely diluted. The Scion of Legacy counts as being the same creature as their Heritage for any effect related to race.

    Stuff of Legends (Su)
    The Scion of Legacy's inhuman roots affects not only their mind and body but also their very time on this earth. A Scion of Legacy's longevity becomes herculean, the length of each of their age categories multiplied by 5. If this would result in a Scion of Legacy's regressing to a previous age category their ability scores are not changed as a result, they are simply given more time.

    Monstrous Apotheosis
    The Scion of Legacy has tapped into so much of their hidden potential that they become something of a perfect hybrid between their parent race and their long dead ancestor. The Scion of Legacy goes through the following changes:

    • The Scion of Legacy's type changes to match the creature type of their chosen Path of the Inhuman. If they already share the same type, the Scion of Legacy gains any subtypes possessed by the creature.
    • The Scion of Legacy selects one of the ability scores that were increased by their Inhuman Body and Inhuman Mind class features. They receive a further +2 increase to these two ability scores.
    • The Scion of Legacy is treated as if having two more levels in this class than they actually do in regards to any class features or abilities granted by this class that are based solely off of the amount of levels the Scion of Legacy possesses in this class.

    Well, here's the new class. As those who were with us for the last class, you'll probably notice that Innate Skill ended up on a chopping block. That was only originally included for a reason of whimsy and to mimic the concept this class was based upon but I ended up feeling like it might just be an incentive to actually multiclass out and that it may interact strangely with the class's abilities. Stuff of Legends and Thicker than Water got imported and knocked up a few levels and Monstrous Apotheosis stayed the same.

The Scion of Legacy gains two claw attacks and a bite attack that deals damage for a creature of their size. The Scion of Legacy gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls with these natural attacks for every two levels that they possess in this class.

    Least Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can put off an aura of stench that reeks of death and decay. This aura extends in a ten foot radius out from the Scion of Legacy. Allies in the radius of the aura are immune to any scent based effects while foes must make a DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier or be nauseated for 1d4+6 minutes.

    Moderate Monstrous Art

    Any foe struck by one of the Scion of Legacy's natural attacks must make a DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice + the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier or be paralyzed for 1d4+1 rounds.

    Both of these abilities are supernatural in nature.

    Major Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a full-round that invokes an attack of opportunity, may devour the corpse of a creature that they have slain no more than 10 rounds prior. The Scion of Legacy heals 10d10 points of damage and is treated as if under the effects of the Heroes' Feast spell. This ability is supernatural in nature and its effects last for 12 hours. The Scion of Legacy can not benefit from this ability again until this duration has expired.

    Master Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy's natural attacks now deal 1d3+1 points of Constitution and Dexterity damage; a successful Fortitude save (DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+ the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier) cuts this damage in half.

    A creature slain by the Scion of Legacy's rises as a Ghast of equal Hit Dice to the slain creature under the control of the Scion of Legacy one round later. Ghasts created in this fashion only exist for 24 hours before reverting to a normal corpse and a Scion of Legacy may have no more Ghasts under their control than half their total Hit Dice.

    Least Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can put off an aura of chilling and utter silence. This aura extends in a ten foot radius out from the Scion of Legacy. This aura functions the same as the Silence spell. The Scion of Legacy may select any amount of creatures to exclude from the effects of this aura when it raises it. This aura is a supernatural ability and may be dismissed as a free action.

    Moderate Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, may release a sixty foot cone from its eyes. Any allies caught in the area of effect receive a morale bonus to attack rolls and saving throws against mind affecting effects for 1d4 rounds equal to one quarter the Scion of Legacy's total Hit Dice. Foes caught in the cone must make a DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier Will save or be panicked as long as they can see the Scion of Legacy.

    Whenever the Scion of Legacy wields a weapon with one hand they inflict one and a half their strength modifier in damage and increase the weapon's critical threat range by one point.

    Least Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can release a cloud of green, noxious gas. This gas fills up a 10x10 foot cube in a square adjacent to the Scion of Legacy. This cloud persists for 1 round and any creature inside of the cloud (or who pass through it) must make a Fortitude save (DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+the Scion of Legacy's Constitution modifier) or be poisoned. The poison deals 1d4 constitution damage for four rounds and is cured by two consecutive successful saves. This is a supernatural ability and the Scion of Legacy can use it once every 1d4+1 rounds.

    Moderate Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy gains Damage Reduction 5/Adamantine.

    As a standard action, that provokes an attack of opportunity, the Scion of Legacy can generate any weapon they are proficient with from their body. This weapon is entirely made out of metal and has an enhancement bonus equal to one quarter the Scion of Legacy's total Hit Dice. The generated weapon dissipates if it leaves the Scion of Legacy's hand or if the Scion of Legacy is unconscious.

    Major Monstrous Art
    If a Scion of Legacy is struck by a weapon made of metal, the weapon takes 1d6 points of damage and the Scion of Legacy heals 1d6 points of damage per two levels the Scion of Legacy possesses in this class. A successful Fortitude save (DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+the Scion of Legacy's Constitution modifier) halves this damage and the amount the Scion of Legacy heals. Creatures made of (or mostly of) metal are subject to this ability.

    The Scion of Legacy's Damage Reduction increases to 10.

    Master Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy gains immunity to spells, spell-like abilities and magical effects that allow spell resistance. Certain spells and effects function differently against the Scion of Legacy, as noted below:
    • A magical attack that deals electricity damage slows the Scion of Legacy for 3 rounds (as the Slow spell), with no saving throws.
    • A magical attack that deals fire damage breaks any slow effect on the Scion of Legacy and heals 1 point of damage for every 3 that would have been dealt. If the healing would cause the Scion of Legacy to exceed their full normal hit points they gain any excess as temporary hit points. The Scion of Legacy gets no save against fire effects.
    • The Scion of Legacy is affected normally by rust effects.


    The Scion of Legacy's Damage Reduction increases to 15.

    Least Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can put off an aura of pure fear. This aura extends in a ten foot radius from the Scion of Legacy. Allies in the radius of the aura are immune to fear effects while foes must make a DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice+the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier or become frightened. This is a supernatural ability.

    Moderate Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy gains immunity to cold damage, Damage Reduction 5/bludgeoning and magic and gains a +4 bonus on saving throws against Channel Energy attempts.

    The Scion of Legacy gains a melee touch attack. Any foe struck by the Scion of Legacy's touch attack must make a DC 10+1/2 the Scion of Legacy's Hit Dice + the Scion of Legacy's Charisma modifier or be paralyzed for 1d4+1 rounds. This is a supernatural ability.

    Major Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a full-round action, may let out a pulse of negative energy. This pulse deals 10d6 points of negative energy damage and extends in a forty feet radius from the Scion of Legacy. Any corpse, that has been dead for no longer than ten days, that is in the radius of this effect rises as a zombie under the control of the Scion of Legacy but reverts to a normal corpse after 10 rounds. This is a supernatural ability and mimics the Animate Dead spell.

    Master Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy who is slain only remains so for 2d10 rounds as long as some portion of their body remains. Otherwise the Scion of Legacy regenerates itself from its remains, rising at full health. This is a supernatural ability and the Scion of Legacy can not self-regenerate in the confines of an anti-magic field or similar effect or Consecrate or similar effect but regenerates as normal once the duration of those effects end. The Scion of Legacy can only use this ability once per week and will be truly slain if killed a second time.

    The Scion of Legacy's Damage Reduction increases to 10/Bludgeoning and Magic, it gains immunity to Electricity damage and its Paralyzing Touch's effects become permanent (though any spell that removes paralysis or a curse removes this effect).

    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can wreathe their wielded weapons and natural attacks in blazing fire, dealing an additional 1d4 points of fire damage per two levels in this class. This ability is a supernatural special attack and can be suppressed as a free action.

    Least Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy, as a standard action, can grow a pair of smoldering wings. The Scion of Legacy gains a flight speed equal to their base land speed with a maneuverability of average. The Scion of Legacy can molt these wings as a free action or as a standard action that invokes an attack of opportunity. If the Scion of Legacy chooses to molt them as a standard action they deal 3d6 points of fire damage to all foes who are adjacent to them.

    Moderate Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy gains immunity to fire damage, Damage Reduction 5/Evil and can cast Continual Flame, Detect Magic, Detect Poison, and See Invisibility as spell-like abilities at-will.

    Major Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy gains Regeneration 5 (Cold or Evil). The Scion of Legacy's Minor Monstrous Art and Least Monstrous Art now deals half their damage as fire damage and half of their damage as untyped. The Scion of Legacy's Least Monstrous Art's range increases to affecting all foes within 10 feet of the Scion of Legacy and the flight speed granted increases to twice the Scion of Legacy's base land speed and increases its maneuverability to good.

    Master Monstrous Art
    A Scion of Legacy who is slain only remains dead for 1d4 rounds as long as some portion of their body remains. Otherwise the Scion of Legacy bursts from its remains in a torrent of fire after 1d4, fully healed and with 1 permanent negative level. This is a supernatural ability that mimics the Resurrection spell. A Scion of Legacy can not self-resurrect in an anti-magic field or in the area of a Desecrate spell but will self-resurrect once the duration of such spells expire. The Scion of Legacy can only use this ability once a week and will be slain truly if killed a second time.

    The Scion of Legacy's Damage Reduction increase to 10 and they can now cast Cure Critical Wounds, Remove Curse and Wall of Fire as spell-like abilities at-will and Greater Restoration as a spell-like ability three times per day.

    Whenever the Scion of Legacy is subjugated to Hit point damage determined by a dice roll, re-roll the damage and take the lower of the two values.

    Least Monstrous Art
    During an encounter, whenever the Scion of Legacy suffers an amount of damage equal to 10% of their total health (either at once or cumulatively) they gain a +1 morale bonus to attack and damage rolls and suffer a -1 penalty to AC. These bonuses and penalties cap at +8/-8 and end one minute after combat has ended.

    Moderate Monstrous Art
    The Scion of Legacy functions in many ways as if they were one size category larger. Whenever the Scion of Legacy is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for a combat maneuver or opposed check (such as during a grapple, bull rush attempt, and trip attempts), the Scion of Legacy is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to them. A Scion of Legacy is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect them. The Scion of Legacy can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, their space and reach remain those of a creature of their actual size. The benefits of this class ability stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.

    The Scion of Legacy gains Fast Healing 1 and receives a +4 racial bonus saving throws against Death and Necromancy effects.

    Major Monstrous Art
    Any time an effect or method would kill The Scion of Legacy, before they are considered dead they are treated as being affected by a Regenerate spell (Caster level equal to the Scion of Legacy's class level). This ability is usable an amount of times per week equal to the Scion of Legacy's Constitution modifier (minimum 1). This is a Supernatural ability and if activated inside of an anti-magic field or similar effect it's effects will only occur once the Scion of Legacy leaves the area.

    The Scion of Legacy gains Regeneration 5 (Fire or Acid) and is now immune to both poison and disease. The Scion of Legacy may now also consume any form of organic substance for sustenance

    Master Monstrous Art
    Once per encounter, as a standard action, the Scion of Legacy can enter a Primal Rage. They grow to Huge size category, gain two Slam attacks, gain use of the Awesome Blow feat and lose either the Acid or Fire vulnerability of their Regeneration. The Scion of Legacy is exhausted once leaving a Primal Rage and requires one hour of complete rest to recover. The Scion of Legacy can enter a Primal Rage an amount of times per day equal to 1/2 their Constitution modifier and the Primal Rage lasts 1d10 minutes. This is a supernatural ability.

    Aaaaand done.

    Since Radmelon was so patient with his original request, I felt that it would be appropriate for the first Path of the Inhuman to be the Phoenix.

    Nice class. Still, ever heard of the supplement Weapons of Legacy? It had a section that allowed Monsters of Legacy to exist, legendary creatures that got Legacy Powers just like a Weapon of Legacy. I also made a bloodline for it, which you may want to look at. Still, overall nice class.

    This is a really cool class. I was wondering if you had enough included in it to make one go 1-20 (the only way to really get all the goodies that are given out, or to make the class worth it), and I think the Phoenix does. Now, here's the thing: it's not too high tier. I'm thinking 4-5. Maybe.

    The only reason it got to 4 is because REGENERATION IS STINKING POWERFUL. So, giving regen 5 [Cold/Evil] is a boost.

    Basically, this looks like a powered-up bloodline... which are pretty much worth 3 levels. If, and only if, they're done Welknair style. So.. I think this class needs some major boosts.

    That said, it's nice.

    I have to admit that while I know of the source book it's one of the splats that I've never read and actually have never really seen come across in any of the threads on the site that I've been in.

    I will check out your bloodline though.

    And thanks. I'm trying to forge a well received class out of the ruins of its predecessor.

    Not exactly sure what you're saying here, sorry.

    Now, here's the thing: it's not too high tier. I'm thinking 4-5. Maybe.
    This...this I'm not alright with. I don't mind if I make a class that's Tier 1 but I never want it to be below Tier 3.

    I see I'll need to work more on balancing how heritages/Paths of the Inhuman work.


    Basically, this looks like a powered-up bloodline... which are pretty much worth 3 levels. If, and only if, they're done Welknair style.
    Sorry, you've lost me again. ^^;

    So.. I think this class needs some major boosts.
    Any suggestions? Maybe that Monster of Legacy thing Pyro mentioned?

    That said, it's nice.
    Thanks! ^_^

    Sorry. What I was saying was that a full bloodline is worth ECL+3 or LA +3. In other words, you lose three levels at some point of your career in return for a bunch of benefits over the whole of it. Some of these bonuses are flat stat boosts, an affinity, and a skill bonus (the last two of which are most often WORTHLESS).

    This is almost the same power level, only it's spread over 20 character levels.

    One maxim I've heard that I like for PEACHing is, "If you can't imagine anyone taking it, it's not powerful enough. If you can't imagine anyone NOT taking it, it's too powerful." At this point, while I could see someone taking it, it doesn't seem overly good.

    The problem, I think, is not having stuff in levels (dead levels are the curse of homebrew!): there's something or other in every level. However, almost half of them are just stat increases. Neato-keen, that, but also not a class feature.

    Suggestions for improvement:

    Give each path a domain and a certain number of castings per day (maximum 2+bonus from mod?) could work, or give them the option to get extra feats for it.

    Some sort of shape-shifting ability, IE, shift into whatever creature is a part of your bloodline, gaining its abilities to a certain extent? Then, as the levels go on, they could get closer and closer to their parents' abilities. Seems close to the fluff.

    Maybe take a page from Pathfinder's "X Power/Talent?" For example, the Barbarian gets a feat-equivalent "Rage Power" from a list of twenty or thirty, and then a few suggestions on his archetype as to which would help the fluff. The rogue gets "Rogue Talents" every other level (again, about equivalent to a bonus feat) which can do a number of things, also suggested in his archetype. This allows for quite a bit of buildability, so that no two Scions are the same.

    Scaling and thematic abilities, in my opinion, are better than including bonus feats and one-off abilities (I'm looking at you, PointlessTrackless steps! And Resist Nature's Lure...). However, that's my personal pet peeve.

    There are my suggestions. Take at your own risk.

    Also, follow'd.

    @Sam: The problem is I don't want to make this a casting class or an initiating class. That seems to be a common trend and something that really ends up with a class being determined as Tier 3 or higher because spells and maneuvers are "That Good". It also ends up inevitably leading to clashes with certain Paths. If the creature isn't magical and the base race isn't magical then where is this magic coming from? Why is this class granting magic if there's no reasonable source from it? Is it just tacked on for the hell of it?

    I also don't want to give shapeshifting of any kind...because...well...I already have a base class that does that and does that well.

    The problem with the Rage Power/Rogue Talent/Gunslinger Deed/etc. line of thiking is that I need to find something that is both organic to the class and completely generic so that it doesn't steal thunder from the chosen Path of the Inhuman. And I'm trying to come up with something and failing so far; might crack up Bastards and Bloodlines and look at what their feats and classes grant for ideas.

    I might just try to buff up the Paths if I can't think of anything.

    Your input has been very appreciated. ^_^

    I understand about the magic, but here's the issue: T3 IS magic. Anything T3 and above is using a magic or magic-esque system. Getting to T3 requires a ton of choices that can be switched out. So, if you're not going to use magic, then what are you using? Binding could work, maneuvers could work, powers could work, but they've all been lumped together.

    Let me repeat: the only way for something to be T3, by definition, is to have something that it is VERY good at, AND an ability to do some other stuff if needed. This class cannot.

    Also, I've never heard of Bastards and Bloodlines... the books sounds very interesting. Is it 3.5?

    I know, I know. I just don't personally like how you need magic or magic-by-a-different-name X to be competing close to the middle of the Tier system. While I'm alright with Paths giving magical abilities or even give some form of casting, I just want to try and not have it be part of the main chassis. Might not be able to avoid that though.

    Bastards and Bloodlines is a 3rd party DnD supplement released at the cusp of 3.5 and made by Green Ronin Publishing. I personally like Green Ronin publishing so I tend to get ideas from it or use it.

    It's the fun little book that introduced beauties like the Blinkling (Halfling/Blink dog), Burrower (Gnome/Umber Hulk), Lasher (Dwarf/Roper) and Wendigo (Dwarf/Winter Wolf).

    Sounds great!

    Now, here's the thing: this class can still be tier 4. If you focus each of the Paths to one "niche," then it can be good at it; really good at it. Just realize you have to compete with multi-classing.

    Which I'm not honestly alright with.

    Though I would be alright with the domain idea if it was translated into a mostly Supernatural and SLA format.

    I think that works pretty nicely! Very fluffy domains, but useful enough. So, now there need to be... more Paths?

    I like this, a lot.

    Feel free to make requests. Like it's predecessor class, that's how the majority of this classes' options will be built. The Phoenix will be the only one from the original waiting queue to be made unless requested a second time because Radmelon was pretty vehement on it.

    I like this, a lot.
    Thanks!

    Dragons come to mind quickly. They are indeed renowned for their mating... erm... skills.

    Dinosaurs. (I LOVE 'EM!)

    Celestial.

    Fiendish (blah...).

    I can help with some of these, if you want.

    Any specifics of those 4 broad creature kinds you'd like to see?

    While I appreciate the sentiment, at this point in the project the help I require is requests and critiques. The predecessor class got bogged down and went on hiatus because of similar offers and the Moderators were very clear on what would happen if any ownership disputes even started to happen.

    Celestial is my favorite... I've always loved playing paladins.

    Maybe something that fits with Paladins? (IE, stacks for determining smites/LoH/spellcasting...?).

    A Solar would be cool to see: they're awesome. Any other Angels would work, too.

    That's something that'd either come from a feat or a PrC, but that's an idea to tuck away for later use or something someone else could always do themselves. So I'll tuck that gem away for later.

    Solar it is!

    It looks nice and definitely has some stuff to look forward to, but I'm puzzled what you meant by 10th level cleric casting, without mentioning spells.

    Basically, you get the same casting(meaning same number of spells known and spell slots, as is implied by that) as a cleric of half your class level would. So, at 20th, there'd be no difference between a 10th level cleric and a 20th level member of this class.
