    Green Ronin stuff;

    The Eternal Rome supplement has a base class called the Gladiator, not the Charioteer.

    Green Ronin also has base class books for;
    Assassin, Cavalier, Noble, Shaman, Psychic, Unholy Warrior and Witch.

    Also the Holy Warrior from the Book of Righteous Might.

    Crisis in Freeport has the Corsair.

    The Cultist NPC class can be found in Freeport: City of Adventure or the Freeport Trilogy.

    The Dragon Compendium has the Battle Dancer, the Death Master, the Jester, the Mountebank, the Savant, the Sha'ir and the Urban Druid.

    All of those except the corsair are in the comprehensive list I believe, but they might have been left out since the list I posted (not the table) is not my most complete. Thanks for the charioteer catch

    Added a bunch of Alderac Entertainment's classes and some other obscure stuff. Been hunting like a mad man for classes!

    I'm just trying to go down the list in order now. So here are the Path of Xs:
    Spoiler
    Show

    {table=head]CLASS |SOURCE |TIER |ROLE |NOTES
    Arcane Engineer |Path of Magic |1 |Caster |Wizard spinoff that implants magic items in people; wizard spell access
    Arsenalist |Path of Magic |1 |Caster |Wizard trades some feats for the ability to make gunpowder/firearms; wizard spell access
    Mind Weaver |Path of Magic |2 |Caster |Int-based Sorcerer-type that tries to be a psion (trades XP for components, gradually ignores ASF), use spell-level lower for counterspells
    Sun Mage |Path of Magic |2 |Caster |Spontaneous caster with fire spell bonuses in sunlight; requires sunlight to restore spell slots, list of slightly restricted Sorcerer spells plus healing
    Chameleon |Path of Shadow |3 |Skillmonkey |Disguise-focus, half-rogue sneak attack, with 6th level Abj/Div/Ench/Ill spells from the wizard list
    Con Artist |Path of Shadow |5 |Skillmonkey |Bluff-focus, Fascinate/Suggestion/Inspire competence as a bard
    Delver |Path of Shadow |5 |Skillmonkey |Bardic Knowledge, Rogue trapfinding/defenses, combat feats at higher levels
    Psychic Thief |Path of Shadow |3 |Skillmonkey |Psionic Rogue (3.0 system, but progression matches PsyWar) - slower Sneak Attack and Trapfinding than Psychic Rogue, faster powers and Uncanny Dodge
    Commander |Path of the Sword |5 |Melee |Fighter with half feats, a minor numeric party buff and Leadership (not counted in tier)
    Hunter |Path of the Sword |5 |Melee |Bounty hunter-type with extra emphasis on hunting favored enemies
    Outdoorsman |Path of the Sword |5 |Melee |Favored Terrain noncasting Ranger-type with extra bonus feats, companion eventually equal to druid's, with magical beast option
    Faith Caster |Path of Faith |1 |Caster |Rainbow Warsnake: the base class
    Thaumaturge |Path of Faith |1 |Caster |Cleric with the Sorcerer's spells per day chart, no domains or turning, bonus metamagic/item creation feats as a wizard
    Devoted Illusionist |School of Illusion |2 |Caster |Strict Illusionist with limited spontaneity, metamagic cost mitigation, bonuses to DCs/CL checks (can access to another school for a feat)
    Devoted Evoker |School of Evocation |2 |Caster |Strict Evoker with limited spotaneity, metamagic cost mitigation, bonuses to DCs/CL checks (can access to another school for a feat)
    Knight |Excalibur |5 |Melee |Mounted Combat feats with built-in mount, Leadership (not counted in tier), SR v. opposite alignment[/table]

    Devoted Illusionist is the only thing here that's especially interesting.
    And Mind Weaver, because after seeing so many spell point or arcane-fluffed psionics homebrews, it's a bit of a trip to see that someone, sometime, wanted it to go the other way.

    From now on, whenever something is added to the main table I'll be deleting stuff off of the lists since the initial post is now too big (over 5000 characters). I added in the Deadlands classes, and got rid of the monster classes in the list.

    Going a bit further down the list:
    Spoiler
    Show
    {table=head]CLASS |SOURCE |TIER |ROLE |NOTES
    Merchant |Black Flags |6 |Skillmonkey |Contacts; Skill points as a class feature, still comes short of Expert
    Sailor |Black Flags |5 |Melee |Fighter with several feats replaced with 1/day Curse-themed SLAs
    Noble |Black Flags |6 |Skillmonkey |Gets party invites as a class feature
    Priest |Black Flags |6 |Skillmonkey |Handful of Level 1 SLAs, up to 3/day; can blow a bunch of skill ranks to get invited to parties
    Channeler |Midnight Campaign Setting |2 |Caster |Generic spellcaster in Midnight's Feat-based casting system; very limited spell levels per day
    Defender |Midnight Campaign Setting |4 |Melee |Monk variant with added customizability, flexibility, unique options
    Wildlander |Midnight Campaign Setting |4 |Melee |Noncasting Ranger variant with added flexibility in mundane effects
    Legate |Midnight Campaign Setting |1 |Caster |Evil Cleric with Magic-eating Ghost companion
    Chaos Mage |Chaos Magic |1 |Caster |Menu-selection casting with access to genuinely openended effects
    Black Heart |Dezzavold - Fortress of the Drow |4 |Melee |Evil fear-inciting rager can temporarily learn dead enemies' abilites by eating their hearts
    Netherstrider |Dezzavold - Fortress of the Drow |4 |Melee |Unarmed combatant with focus on underground combat in tight spaces; minor rage and a huge number of unarmed attacks per round
    Bisaakir Zaari |Dry Land - Empires of the Dragon Sands |1 |Caster |Elementally themed genie servant, Charisma-based prepared casting from Sorcerer list
    Shaman |Dry Land - Empires of the Dragon Sands |2 |Caster |Banishes Outsiders, casts from gradually-increasing number of domains (extremely limited at low levels)
    Slave |Dry Land - Empires of the Dragon Sands |6 |Cannonfodder |Commoner with restrictions on cross-classed skill ranks, 5-level class.
    Mystic |Tome of Artifacts |3 |Gish |Divine warrior with Monk abilities like Flurry, Evasion and Dimension Step and a versatile spell list
    [/table]


    Black Flag's Soldier isn't statted out (it just says to look at the Fighter), so I didn't include it.

    Midnight's magic made the setting look very clever. I would be shocked if anyone didn't take the spellcasting feats, and taking those plays right into the narrative of Players v. Witchhunting evil empire. I'm a big fan of that sort of tricksy system bribery.

    I'm skipping Mechamorphosis, since it really doesn't seem appropriate.

    There were a bunch of books with 1-2 entries at the bottom of the list that I didn't get down to, Game of Thrones, a bunch of Mongoose and AEG stuff, and I'm sure plenty that I don't know.

    Also I ran into this list, which I'm just going to say is daunting (especially if it's just what was out when 3.5 was fresh and new).

    I'm not going to have time to enter a whole lot of other stuff in, but I'll probably be browsing the old AEG books.

    I formatted/standardized some of the labels, to improve the search function. I also cleaned up some of the things that looked like oversights/mistypes (eg. gish labels on mundane classes, buffer labels on nonbuffers, misleading progression descriptions).

    First edit in awhile: added the Mlar NPC class. Also, going to add Dinosaur World and Deadland d20: To hell and back classes.

    Appreciate it Eggs should get most of the credit though

    On another note...does anyone know where I could find a supplement called "The Goy..." I've been hunting for it for awhile since it apparently contains some 4-6 base classes. Any help/links is appreciated

    Call it a joint effort. I didn't know half of those were even there until I saw that list.

    "The Goy
    From Anubium

    Prepare for your new lords.

    Can you stand toe-to-toe against these warriors of unnatural speed? Are you able to break the will of these indomitable creatures? Will your magic succor you in these darkest times?

    No, of course not. You are the slave and they are the masters."



    Seriously.
    What.

    I used the word Anubium in the search and got results This strikes me as...bizarre.

    EDIT: the supplement, not the description. I might get it tomorrow since it's only like $3 and would add 4 classes to the ever expanding list

    I just hope it's not what it sounds like.

    Anyway, a few more. I hope their formatting fits in:
    Spoiler
    Show

    {table]CLASS |BOOK |TIER |ROLE |NOTES
    Noble |Empire (AEG) |6 |Skillmonkey |Finally a Noble without Leadership (!!!) Otherwise, it's a strangely huge will save on a weak frame.
    Enforcer |Guilds (AEG) |6 |Melee |NPC class with a big Intimidate bonus
    Barbarian of the Frozen Wastelands |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Melee |Frightful Presence, Strength enhancement, cold resistance
    Bard of the Black Crow |Secrets (AEG) |3 |Caster |Debuff bardic music is a step down optimization-wise, but spell as a normal bard.
    Seasonal Druid |Secrets (AEG) |1 |Caster |Divine caster with minor seasonal/elemental bonuses. Druid spells.
    Breath of the Wind School Monk |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Melee |Monk with saves and feats trades for way too many Flurry attacks and much extra speed.
    Charred Chameleon Monk |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Melee |Monk with Bonus feats replaced with half-advancement Sneak attack, scouting bonuses, Hide in Plain Sight (Su)
    Fist of Fury Monk |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Melee |Monk without bonus feats, with crappy rage and blasting power.
    Jaded Stone School Monk |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Melee |Monk with Hardness, static damage bonus, and a bunch of Toughness feats in place of normal bonus feats and Will save.
    Rogue of the Whispering Blades |Secrets (AEG) |3 |Skillmonkey |Rogue with ability damage and combat tricks in place of sneak attack and Trapsense. And Shadowdancer's Hide in Plain Sight as (Ex)
    Soldier of Truth|Secrets (AEG) |4 |Melee |Monk, but with UMD, armor, Wis to AC/Ref/attack (multiple iterations of wis), self-revivify, eventually flight (too late for most purposes)
    Chaplain |Secrets (AEG) |5 |Healer |Heals damage nonmagically. Has Druid/Marshal chassis. Two varieties - one heals limited times per day, one heals limited times per patient per day.
    Desert Ranger |Wilds (AEG) |4 |Melee |Customizable 3.0-style Ranger with bonuses specific to deserts
    Woodsman |Wilds (AEG) |5 |Melee |Twist on the 3.0 Ranger with an extra feat, small skill bonuses, much weaker spallcasting
    Beast Lord |Wilds (AEG) |4 |Melee |Better animal companion than Druid, natural weapons, minor numeric bonuses, strong melee chassis, capstone calls 5xCha HD of animals
    Swamp Ranger |Wilds (AEG) |4 |Melee |Customizable 3.0-style Ranger with bonuses specific to swamps
    Mountaineer |Wilds (AEG) |5 |Melee |Ignore difficult terrain, climb bonuses, elemental resistances, DR, Fighter feats at half rate, strong chassis
    Tundra Ranger |Wilds (AEG) |5 |Melee |Awesome chassis, flexible bonus feats, minor situational bonuses, no spells.
    Archer |Iron Heroes |4 |Melee |Ranged damage-dealer with tag-on effects, best at picking off immobile targets
    Armiger |Iron Heroes |5 |Melee |Defensive melee, really swingy token mechanic, abilities stack poorly
    Berserker |Iron Heroes |4 |Melee |Rager with a variety of rage powers fueled by enemies' attacks
    Executioner |Iron Heroes |4 |Melee |Study enemies and gain debuffs against them; gain sneak attack and free tokens to start encounters. Good skills.
    Harrier |Iron Heroes |5 |Skillmonkey |Mobile fighter with numeric attack and defense bonuses equal to squares of movement in a round. Gets Dervish dance ability really late.
    Hunter |Iron Heroes |4 |Melee |Scouting and support character. Give allies numerical buffs and tokens (if their classes use them). Use combat maneuvers against multiple opponents. Good skills.
    Man-at-Arms |Iron Heroes |4 |Melee |Fighter-type class with floating feats, good skills
    Thief |Iron Heroes |4 |Skillmonkey |Elevated skill rank cap, sneak attack, various social skill tricks, ****loads of skill points.
    Weapon Master |Iron Heroes |5 |Melee |Focus on one weapon's use. Easy to get weapon tokens, difficult to get enough of them to use class abilities. Generally a Warrior with really big numbers.
    Arcanist |Iron Heroes |2 |Caster |Skill-based caster with severe limitations, nasty consequences for faiure or overzealousness, but still can access very powerful effects.[/table]


    I was on the fence about including the variant classes, but they're mostly more distinct than a lot of the Cleric/Fighter rehashes, so I let them go.
    The Ranger ones were probably a stretch

    I wanted to play Game of Thrones before adding it, but after the first session, I really don't think it's compatible.
    In D&D, all the classes would take adjustment to fit in, and would probably be low tiers 5-6.
    It just has very different priorities and game assumptions.

    I just noticed that I'd forgotten Iron Heroes.

    Anyone added dragonmech? Im away from my books at the moment, but they add a few strange-but-fun classes. The ones I remembere were the Steamborg, a versatile cyborg who gradually makes himself more mechanical, and the Gearsmith, a wannabe Artificer.
