    Default Push it to the Limit [D&D 3.5, Base Classes/Rules Supplement, In Progress]


    Okay, so I've had the urge for a while now to revamp the Limit Warriors, as first put forth by Animana, I believe on the old Wizards forums, but he/she may have posted them elsewhere beforehand, and expanded upon here at GitP by Morph Bark. The basic concept is very nice, and I really like the somewhat "game-y" function of a limit break gauge that can grant characters powerful new abilities and attack forms. However, I think the mechanics can use an update, a slight power upgrade in some places, and cleaning up/streamlining in several places.

    I'd like to take my own stab at the idea. I want a system for the "limit" points that has its own basic rules and governing characteristics, and then I want a few classes, maybe several even, that utilize those mechanics and build upon them and draw from them in unique ways. A central core that unifies each class, with many different ways to use the rules of that core. There should be plenty of options that go with each class and that can be used by members of non-associated classes, as well as lots of feats.

    Before I get to work, I'd like to know what people liked about the system most, other than that it allowed you to play Cloud Strife or Yuna with Guns. I'd also like to know, from anyone that's actually played one of the classes, if there was anything you didn't like or felt could work more smoothly with some tweaking. Finally, I'd like to know what people want to get out of a "Limit Break" system.

    The Limit Gauge & You: A Walk Along the Razor's Edge



    The Limit Gauge is a pool of points, called Break Points, that can be spent in order to break one's physical limits and do fantastical, seemingly impossible things. This miraculous power might manifest itself in grandiose stunts, elemental assaults, or magical utility. Classes that utilize the Limit Gauge have a base set of class features that are always fully mundane in nature that they then compliment with a diverse array of options fueled by their Break Points, or BP.

    A character's Limit Gauge can store a maximum number of BP equal to his total hit points. For example, a character with 12 hit points could have up to 12 BP in his Limit Gauge at any one time, but never more than 12. Most characters' Limit Gauges start the day empty, but all characters gain BP whenever they are dealt lethal damage equal to the amount of damage taken. Nonlethal damage does not grant a character BP.

    A character can never gain more BP than the maximum their Limit Gauge is able to store. For example, if a character with 12 hit points suffers 14 lethal damage not only are they unconscious, but they also gain only 12 BP rather than 14. Some characters are able to gain BP in other ways. A character's stored BP remain in the character's Limit Gauge until spent or until that character takes an extended rest.

    A character that utilizes the Limit Gauge draws on effects called Limit Breaks and is considered a Limit Breaker. Limit Breaks often reference Breaker Level, which is calculated as the total of levels a character has in Limit Breaker classes + ½ his or her levels in other classes. Variable numeric effects, duration, and other values of Limit Breaks are often determined by the Limit Breaker's Breaker Level.

    As a player, you should consider playing a Limit Breaker class if you like the idea of a character that gets more dangerous the closer it comes to death, if you want to play a skilled character with mundane talents that also masters an esoteric supernatural gift, or if you want to introduce a little video game style special attack system into your D&D game.

    Limit Breaks are divided into 10 Break Levels – the higher the Break Level, the more fantastically powerful the effect. In order to learn or use a Limit Break, a character must have a Breaker Level of at least twice the Limit Break's Break Level minus 1. For example, in order to learn or use a Level 5 Limit Break, a character needs to have a Breaker Level of at least 9. The cost to use any Limit Break is 5 Break Points per Break Level.

    Limit Breaks can achieve any number of different effects, but are further divided into the Boost, Strike, and Utility categories. Boosts offer some kind of enhancement or healing to the Limit Breaker or one of its allies. Strikes offer direct assault on one or more of the Limit Breaker's enemies. Utilities offer effects that do not necessarily apply to combat situations. All Limit Breaks are supernatural abilities, but instead of having saving throw DCs based on the number of HD a creature has the DC of a Limit Break is calculated as follows: 10 + 1/2 Breaker Level + Ability modifier (Int for Sages, Wis for Veterans, Cha for Knaves and everybody else).

    Class Skills (4 + Int modifier): Appraise, Concentration, Craft, Decipher Script, Gather Information, Knowledge (Any), Profession, Speak Language, Spellcraft, and Use Magic Device.

    Weapon & Armor Proficiency
    A Sage is proficient with the dagger, club, quarterstaff, light crossbow, and sling, but is not proficient with any armors or shields.

    Limit Breaker
    A Sage is a Limit Breaker with a Breaker Level equal to his class level + ½ his levels in other classes. He begins play with the knowledge of two 1st level Limit Breaks and as he gains levels he learns new Limit Breaks and is able to learn higher level Limit Breaks as shown in the table above. The saving throw DC of any Limit Break used by a Sage is equal to 10 + ½ his Breaker Level + his Intelligence modifier.

    Item Creation
    A Sage gains the Craft Alchemical Item and Scribe Scroll feats as bonus feats at 1st level, the Brew Potion feat at 2nd level, the Craft Magic Arms and Armor feat at 6th level, Craft Wondrous Item at 10th level, Craft Wand at 14th level, and Craft Staff at 18th level. He does not need to meet the prerequisite of any feat gained this way.

    Day Break (Ex): At the start of each day, a Sage gains a number of break points equal to 5 × his class level, up to the maximum number of BP his Limit Gauge is able to store.

    Loremaster's Tome (Ex): A Sage is a collector of valuable information, and perhaps the most valuable bits information are the details of how to cast specific arcane spells. While the Sage himself is unable to cast these spells he keeps a detailed recording of many of them, much like a Wizard would, in a spellbook.

    A Sage begins play with a number of cantrips recorded in his Tome equal to his Intelligence modifier and two 1st level arcane spells recorded in his Tome. At each level beyond 1st, a Sage may record up to two additional arcane spells up to the highest level of Limit Break he can use.

    Using the information recorded in his Tome, a Sage may craft and use magic items as though he had a caster level equal to his Breaker level and without needing to cast any spells he has recorded in his Tome. Spells recorded in his Tome are considered to be on the Sage's spell list for the purposes of using spell completion or spell trigger items.

    As long as the Sage has his Tome with him at all times during crafting, he may substitute an amount of Tome Reserve (as listed in the table above) for an equal amount of required XP when he crafts a magic item. When the Sage gains a level, any unspent Tome Reserve is lost.

    Knowledge Devotion (Ex): At 4th level, the Sage gains the Knowledge Devotion feat as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet its prerequisites. Furthermore, he gains a +1 bonus to all Knowledge and Use Magic Device checks. This bonus increases by +1 at every fourth level hereafter.

    Weapon & Armor Proficiency
    A Veteran is proficient with all simple and martial weapons as well as all armors and shields.

    Limit Breaker
    A Veteran is a Limit Breaker with a Breaker Level equal to his class level + ½ his levels in other classes. He begins play with the knowledge of a single, 1st level Limit Break and as he gains levels he learns new Limit Breaks and is able to learn higher level Limit Breaks as shown in the table above. The saving throw DC of any Limit Break used by a Veteran is equal to 10 + ½ his Breaker Level + his Wisdom modifier.

    Bonus Feats
    At 1st, 2nd, 6th, 12th, and 18th levels a Veteran gains a bonus feat drawn from the Fighter's list of bonus feats. He must meet all prerequisites of feats gained in this way and is considered to be a Fighter of his class level -2 for this purpose.

    Weapon Aptitude (Ex): A Veteran applies any weapon-specific feats he has to all weapons he is proficient with, not simply the particular weapon designated by the feat. This allows him to apply the benefit of feats such as Weapon Focus, Three Mountains Style, or Boomerang Daze to any weapon he wields.

    Veteran's Aura (Ex): Starting at 4th level, a Veteran may spend a swift action and choose a minor aura or major aura from the Marshal's lists of auras (Miniature's Handbook pgs 11-13). Thereafter he projects that aura as a Marshal would until he spends a free action to dismiss its effect or until he spends another swift action to choose a new aura. The bonus of any minor aura projected by the Veteran is equal to his Wisdom modifier (minimum +1), while the bonus of a major aura is simply +1.

    Command (Ex): At 8th level, and at every sixth level thereafter, the bonus of a Veteran's minor or major auras, as well as the Veteran's Leadership Score (if he has one) and the level of the Veteran's followers (if he has any) increases by +1. A follower's level cannot exceed the Veteran's character level - 2 in this way.

    Extra Aura (Ex): Starting at 10th level, when a Veteran spends a swift action to choose and project an aura he may choose two any two auras, minor or major, and project both. At 16th level he may choose three auras and project all three.

    Class Skills (8 + Int modifier): All skills are class skills to the Knave.

    Weapon & Armor Proficiency
    A Knave is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the bastard sword, bolas, longbow, longsword, net, rapier, sap, short sword, shortbow, and whip. Additionally, Knaves are proficient with light armor but are not proficient with shields.

    Limit Breaker
    A Knave is a Limit Breaker with a Breaker Level equal to her class level + ½ her levels in other classes. She begins play with the knowledge of a single, 1st level Limit Break and as she gains levels she learns new Limit Breaks and is able to learn higher level Limit Breaks as shown in the table above. The saving throw DC of any Limit Break used by a Knave is equal to 10 + ½ her Breaker Level + her Charisma modifier.

    Camisado (Ex): When a Knave makes an attack if she has moved at least 10ft prior to her attack, or if she is attacking an opponent that is denied its dexterity bonus to AC, then she gains a bonus to her attack roll and damage roll equal to her Charisma modifier.

    Courage (Ex): A Knave is immune to fear effects, unless the effect has a caster level at least four higher than her Breaker Level or is the extraordinary or supernatural ability of a creature that has at least four more HD than she does. In which case, she is subject to the effect as normal, but adds her Charisma modifier to her will save to resist it.

    Trapfinding (Ex): Knaves can use the Search skill to locate traps when the task has a Difficulty Class higher than 20. Finding a nonmagical trap has a DC of at least 20, or higher if it is well hidden. Finding a magic trap has a DC of 25 + the level of the spell used to create it.

    Knaves can use the Disable Device skill to disarm magic traps. A magic trap generally has a DC of 25 + the level of the spell used to create it. A Knave who beats a trap’s DC by 10 or more with a Disable Device check can study a trap, figure out how it works, and bypass it (with her party) without disarming it.

    AC Bonus (Ex): Starting at 2nd level, a Knave adds her Charisma modifier to AC as long as she is not carrying a shield, wears light or no armor, and carries no more than a light load. She loses this bonus if she is denied her Dexterity bonus to AC or if she is Shaken, Frightened, Panicked, or Cowered.

    Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level or higher if a Knave makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the Knave is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless Knave does not gain the benefit of evasion.

    Inspiration (Ex): Starting at 4th level, a Knave gains 5 break points at the start of each encounter. The number of break points she gains at the start of each encounter increases by 5 at every fourth level hereafter. Any break points gained in this way that are unspent at the end of the encounter are lost.

    Brave and Bold (Ex): Starting at 6th level, a Knave adds her Charisma modifier to all Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution based skill checks and ability checks. This includes initiative but does not include saving throws.

    Rejection (Ex): Starting at 10th level, a Knave gains spell resistance equal to 10 + her Knave level + her Charisma modifier.

    Improved Evasion (Ex): At 14th level, a Knave’s evasion ability improves. She still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, but henceforth she takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless Knave does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.

    Timeless Body (Ex): Starting at 18th level a Knave no longer takes penalties to her ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that she has already taken are removed and she appears to be whatever age she wishes. Bonuses still accrue, and the Knave still dies of old age when her time is up.

    The Knave may convert lethal damage into nonlethal damage dealt to her by any source other than a critical hit, a cursed weapon attack, acid damage, or negative energy damage, as a free action, usable even when it isn't her turn. She also heals nonlethal damage at a rate equal to her Charisma modifier per hour.

    Default Re: Push it to the Limit [D&D 3.5, Brainstorming]

    Limit Breaks: Now You're at the Limit(s)


    1st Level
    Spoiler
    Show

    Limit Break [Keywords]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action:
    Range:
    Target:
    Duration:
    Saving Throw:

    Effect:

    Armed Robbery [Utility]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: 1 Swift action
    Range: Melee
    Target: 1 Creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None

    Effect: Use this Limit Break after successfully hitting a creature with a melee attack and dealing damage to make either a Disarm attempt against that creature or a Sleight of Hand check to steal something from that creature, whichever you choose getting a +4 bonus. If you fail your Disarm attempt the enemy does not get a chance to Disarm you back.

    Big Shot [Boost]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: 1 Full-Round action
    Range: See text
    Target: 1 Creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None

    Effect: Make a single, ranged attack against a creature within your weapon's first range increment. If that attack hits, then it is an automatic, confirmed critical.

    Burning Strike [Strike, Fear, Fire]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: Basic attack
    Range: Melee
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/Breaker level
    Saving Throw: Reflex partial

    Effect: As a basic attack (which can be combined with a full attack), make a touch attack against one target within melee range.

Whenever you do, you either conjure a new Wind Wall or you hurl one that you've already conjured at your enemies as far away as the Limit Break's maximum range.

    Creatures caught within the area of a hurled Wind Wall suffer 1d4 nonlethal damage per Breaker Level if they're on the ground, or 2d6 nonlethal damage per Breaker Level if they are flying (or if they're on the ground and are a Swarm). Moreover, creatures smaller than Huge size are blown back to the furthest distance you hurled the wall. Creatures smaller than Large size are knocked prone. Huge size creatures are checked for 1 round. A successful Fortitude save halves the nonlethal damage and negates being blown back, knocked prone, or checked. A flying creature that is knocked prone or that fails its Fortitude save by 5 or more stops flying and plummets to the ground.

    Cost: 30 BP
    Action: 1 Standard action
    Range: Melee
    Target: See text
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half

    Effect: Make a melee attack against every creature you threaten. Every creature you threaten suffers damage as if you had struck them with a melee attack, even if you miss, but enemies that you successfully hit with your attacks suffer double that damage. Unlike normal, when using this Limit Break, additional damage dice, such as those from Sneak Attack or the Flaming weapon property, are doubled. A successful Reflex save halves any damage suffered.

    N-Zone [Strike, Teleportation]

    Action: 1 Round
    Range: Medium (100ft + 10ft/Breaker Level)
    Target: 1 Creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will negates

    Effect: A creature that fails its save against this Limit Break is shunted into a featureless, extradimensional space, similar to that created by a Rope Trick spell except that there is no window and thus no simple way out. A creature thus trapped may use a Plane Shift spell or other ability to move between planes to escape; however, such an ability will always deposit the creature in a random location on a random plane of existence.

    You gain a Fly speed equal to double your land speed with Perfect maneuverability.

    Area: 120ft-radius burst

    Saving Throw: Reflex half, Fortitude partial (see text)

    Effect: With this Limit Break you conjure a detonation of nuclear fire, scouring creatures and objects in the area of the spell with 1d8 points of damage per Breaker Level, half of which is fire damage, the other half sonic. The damage dealt by this Limit Break ignores resistance to fire or sonic damage and deals half damage to creatures and objects that are immune to fire or sonic damage. Flammable objects that aren't utterly consumed by the damage catch fire.

    Any creature caught in the explosion that fails a Fortitude save also contracts the Mindfire and Slimy Doom diseases. A successful Reflex save halves the damage dealt by Flare, but does not prevent the contraction of the diseases. A successful Fortitude save prevents the initial onset of both diseases.

Continue making additional attacks at your highest attack bonus until you miss with an attack, until you have made a total number of attacks equal to your Breaker Level, or until you no longer threaten an enemy.

    Reserved Post #4.

    Character Options: Push it. Push it Real Good.

    Fighting Spirit
    Prerequisites: Ability to use 1st level Limit Breaks, Veteran class
    Benefit: Whenever you deal damage to a Hostile creature, if you haven't used a Limit Break this round, you add half that amount of Break Points to your Limit Gauge.

    Gain Through Pain
    Prerequisites: Con 15, Ability to use 1st level Limit Breaks
    Benefit: You may deal yourself any amount of lethal damage as a free action on your turn (Adding Break Points to your Limit Gauge accordingly).
    Normal: Whenever you are dealt lethal damage you add an equal amount of Break Points to your Limit Gauge.

    Limit Breaking
    Prerequisites: Con 13
    Benefit: You gain a Limit Gauge, if you didn't already have one, which can hold a maximum number of Break Points equal to your maximum hit points. Your Breaker Level is equal to your levels as a Limit Breaker (if you have any) + ½ your other levels, and you learn any single Limit Break with a level up to ½ your Breaker Level +1. The save DC for this Limit Break is equal to 10 + ½ your Breaker Level + your Charisma modifier.
    Special: You may take this feat any number of times. Each time you do, you learn an additional Limit Break.
    Normal: Characters with levels in classes other than Sage, Veteran, or Knave are not Limit Breakers and do not have a Breaker Level.

    Prerequisites: Ability to use 1st level Limit Breaks, Sage class
    Benefit: Add your Intelligence modifier to the damage roll of any Limit Break you use that deals energy damage (Acid, cold, electricity, etc).

    (And this will be my final reserved post. If anyone has any comments, questions, or suggestions now's the time to make them.)

    Okay, well, I've got three base classes put up so far, and they will be the cornerstone of the system. I don't know if I'll be designing any other Limit Breakers or not.

    The good news is that I intend to make this system very dip-friendly and very accessible to classes that aren't Limit Breakers. I hope to make it multiclass like a hybrid of Tome of Battle and Incarnum, so the intention is to make it incredibly easy to dabble in.

    A Limit Freak type class based on gaining creature characteristics and "wild-shapy" abilities is a possibility. As of this moment I plan on having a good few transmutation-based Limit Breaks throughout the levels, though, so a whole class based around it may prove to be unnecessary.

    I always kinda liked the classes for their customizable "side" stuff; it always felt like you could make ACFs that would replace a Limit Dragoon's Dragon companion easily.

    I also liked the elegance of how said side customizability was quite versatile.

    The one problem I'm having with your fix is that you removed the part that prevented you from, you know, bashing your head against the wall a couple times to fill up your Break pool. Plus, I prefer a smaller number of levels, but that's just me.

    I don't understand what you're talking about. Were there a lot of alternate class features for the Limit Warriors that I don't know about?

    Eh, the only reason this is a problem is because of how natural healing of nonlethal damage works. I forgot it healed at a faster rate. So I'll limit it so that only lethal damage gives you BP. I don't see a problem with it then, if PCs want to cut on themselves or jump out of buildings in order to get a maneuverspell or two, that should be perfectly okay.

    What I meant was that if you felt like making an ACF for your favorite Limit Break Class, you could always add a fairly major one by replacing, say, a Limit Soldier's weapon.

    I know I like those abilities, the exotic sword was always a favorite, however, some things were worded badly or had features that didn't make sense. And there were too many that only works with multiclassing or gestalt. I'd like to see the abilities work better together (one pet peeve was not being ale to take multiple metals to make a unique alloy for the exotic weapon)

    Well, for example, one easy to consider ACF for the Veteran is a Signature Weapon feature that would replace his Weapon Aptitude and start him with a masterwork weapon that also has a unique property flavored as a modification made to the weapon specifically by him. He would get additional modifications as he gained levels.

    In other news, there's a few Limit Breaks up now of various levels, so you can see a little bit of what I have planned for this system. Right now there's lots of melee-based Strikes, but there will be plenty more Boosts, ranged-attacks, Utilities, and generic, elemental blasting as I continue to go along with this.
    Please evaluate and critique the work I've got done so far!

    Alright, let me start by saying I love this. It's like a more cinematic ToB, and it's being done perfectly.

    That being said, with the powers up so far I can't imagine anyone playing a knave or sage over a veteran since all of the abilities are attack oriented, and he has the best BAB.

    I like the idea of a redo of the limti break system, and personally I would like to see a ranged option, and possibly rebuilds on limit psion and mage.

    Wow. High praise. Thank you!

    That being said, with the powers up so far I can't imagine anyone playing a knave or sage over a veteran since all of the abilities are attack oriented, and he has the best BAB.
    Well, yes, currently, there aren't many Limit Breaks designed to play nicely with the Sage class, but the Knave can use the attack breaks pretty well due to his Camisado class feature. Still, don't worry there will be some skill-based utility breaks, and lots of blaster stuff.

    Also...you should really do a limit freak-esque class
    I'll think about it after I've designed several Transmutation breaks. I mean, I plan on having one of the 4th level Limit Breaks transform the character into a Werewolf for a certain period of time, so... we'll see.

    One of the problems with the Limit Psion and the Limit Mage, as far as this system is concerned, is that they just use the Limit Gauge to fuel the casting or manifesting of existing vancian spells or psionic powers. That always seemed pretty broken to me, and I wanted to stay away from that kind of design in this system. The Sage class will be able to fulfill multiple caster-type roles once I've designed lots more Limit Breaks.

    You could probably emulate the various Energy powers that a Psion gets for the elemental powers, and then have more specific powers associated with specific elements. For instance, at first level:

    Energy Touch [Elemental]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: Standard
    Range: 30 ft + 5 ft/2 Breaker levels
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: No

    Effect: Choose one element damage type (Acid, Cold, Electric, Fire, or Sonic), and make a ranged touch attack against one target within range. If you hit, that creature takes 1d6 damage of the chosen type per two Breaker levels you possess, minimum 1d6.


    Freezing Finger [Elemental, Cold]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: Attack action
    Range: Melee
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/Breaker level
    Saving Throw: Fortitude

    Effect: As an attack action (which can be combined with a full attack), make a touch attack against one target within melee range. If you hit, that target takes 1d8 Cold damage per four Breaker levels you possess (minimum 1d8), and must make a Fortitude save or become Fatigued, as the condition.


    Burning Strike [Keywords]
    Level: 1st
    Cost: 5 BP
    Action: Attack action
    Range: Melee
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/Breaker level
    Saving Throw: Reflex

    Effect: As an attack action (which can be combined with a full attack), make a touch attack against one target within melee range. If you hit, that target takes 1d8 Fire damage per four Breaker levels you possess (minimum 1d8), and they must make a Reflex save or become Shaken, as the condition. This is a fear effect which stacks with other fear effects.


    I could go on, but presumably you have the idea and stuff...

    Also, how are the saves for the Limit Breaks calculated? There is no listed DC for anything...

    Good ideas.

    Also, how are the saves for the Limit Breaks calculated? There is no listed DC for anything...
    Well, they are supernatural abilities, so the default rule, and the one I'll be sticking with for the most part, is 10 + ½ the creature’s HD + the creature’s ability modifier (usually Charisma). So, the Sage's Limit Breaks are DC 10 + ½ Breaker Level + Int modifier; the Veteran's Limit Breaks are DC 10 + ½ Breaker Level + Wis modifier; and the Knave's Limit Breaks are DC 10 + ½ Breaker Level + Cha modifier. The save DCs for the classes are specified, but I'll make it clearer in the Limit Gauge & You section.

    For characters dipping into Limit Breaks they will use their Charisma modifier. Maybe there will be a feat to change the ability modifier to Constitution (useful for everybody for many reasons).

    A couple powerful blasting Limit Breaks:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Flare [Strike, Fire, Sonic]
    Level: 7th
    Cost: 35 BP
    Action: 1 Standard action
    Range: Long (400ft + 40ft/Breaker Level)
    Area: 120ft-radius burst
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half, Fortitude partial (see text)

    Effect: With this Limit Break you conjure a detonation of nuclear fire, scouring creatures and objects in the area of the spell with 1d8 points of damage per Breaker Level, half of which is fire damage, the other half sonic. The damage dealt by this Limit Break ignores resistance to fire or sonic damage and deals half damage to creatures and objects that are immune to fire or sonic damage. Flammable objects that aren't utterly consumed by the damage catch fire.

    Any creature caught in the explosion that fails a Fortitude save also contracts the Mindfire and Slimy Doom diseases. A successful Reflex save halves the damage dealt by Flare, but does not prevent the contraction of the diseases. A successful Fortitude save prevents the initial onset of both diseases.

    Gigaflare [Strike, Fire, Sonic]
    Level: 10th
    Cost: 50 BP
    Action: 1 Round
    Range: 1 mile + 1 mile/four Breaker Levels
    Area: ½ mile radius burst
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude partial

    Effect: As Flare except that there are no saving throws to halve the damage or avoid the diseases and objects that catch fire are wreathed in supernatural flames that burn for 2d6 damage per round, deal full damage to objects, and burn indefinitely until extinguished. Such flames cannot be extinguished by ordinary water, but they can be dispelled or suppressed as if they were a magical effect. Any magical water can also extinguish these flames.

    The area of this Limit Break is decimated, rendering it difficult terrain. Plants, unless magically aided, will not grow in the area. Furthermore, the entire area is subjected to a Corrupt Water effect, as the Black Dragon's ability.

    Finally, creatures caught in the blast that fail a Fortitude save suffer 2d6 Strength and Dexterity damage, and 1d6 Constitution damage. Creatures who succeed still suffer 1d6 Strength and Dexterity damage.


    Do they seem like too much to anybody?

    EDIT: Also, there is now only 1 pure attack oriented Limit Break to every 4 Limit Breaks overall (8/31).

    They seem perfectly in keeping with the trope -- in many final fantasy style games, the powers you unleash can be seen from space and have planetary consequences.

    A Few Suggestions:

    A Quasar style power that does d12 damage, but splits its damage dice between everyone in a group. Probably 6th level, as the damage gets weaker the more foes you fight

    A Meteor style power that is a save or die at "ground zero" and huge damage at increments beyond that -- 9th or 10th level, depending on how big you want to make the radius.

    An Ultima style power that is just lots of untyped damage with the possibility of teleporting people across the battlefield -- definitely 10th level.

    A Bad Breath style power that inflicts random status ailment on the target. This could be around 3rd level, as it will be an area attack. The upgraded power, possibily 6th/7th level applies multiple status ailments. Either attack inflicts no damage.

    A 1000 Needles style power that does non randomized damage to a single target...but with a huge critical chance.

    It all looks great so far -- keep up the good work!

    I actually played the (old) Limit Classes some time ago, a Limit Knight, A Limit Monk and I have a Limit Dragoon (made by my good IRL friend Morph Bark, because we both felt that FF without Dragoon is... meh) ready for a new videogame/anime-based campaign (led by the before mentions MB), however this character will propably be replaced by a homebrew class which I am prepping for release

    After getting PounceImprovedGrabNomNomNommed by a white tiger thingy (Right Morph?) at level 1 or 2 while my fellow Limit Sniper watched I had to reroll , so i went with a Tifa-like Limit Monk. She held up a little longer, but then in we started with a new campainga few sessions later. Tested the Limit Dragoon in a testing session for the VideoCampaign and nearly instagibbed a bigass snakewormthingy with one Lancet.

    Anyway, I'm interested into what this will become in the end.
    Homebrew:
    The inFAMOUS Conduit base class. Wow I actually finished it...
    The Darksiders base class, based on the videogame with the same name.

    Now up to 37 Limit Breaks! Though still no 8th level Limit Breaks...

    Took Wayfare's suggestions and added Bad Breath and Ultima Limit Breaks. I've also added a few feats in the post after the Limit Breaks post. I need a LOT more lower level Limit Breaks, so if anyone has any suggestions please give them! I'll be pouring over more Final Fantasy data for inspiration.

    Suggetions:
    --A few healing and support limits based around Protect, Shell, White Wind, Mighty Guard, etc. As well as things like Arise and Full-Life
    --Some anti-defense limits like Power Break, Magic Break, Armor Break, etc.
    --A Grand Summon style limit break fashioned after Yuna that gives summons crazy buffs or lets you summon Espers/Guardian Forces/etc.
    --A Mix-style limit break along with something like Gil Toss
    --Doublecast
    --A Mug-style limit break that lets you attack and steal from an enemy
    --A Zantetsuken limit for one-hit kills
    --An Osmosis-style limit for regaining spell points and/or spell slots while draining them from an enemy
    --A health stealing Drain-style limit


    Great work so far!

    I'm rather leery about granting powerful restorative Limit Breaks, considering they are powered by you taking damage. White Wind could work fairly well though... I'll think about it.

    --Some anti-defense limits like Power Break, Magic Break, Armor Break, etc.
    Good idea.

    --A Grand Summon style limit break fashioned after Yuna that gives summons crazy buffs or lets you summon Espers/Guardian Forces/etc.
    I've been avoiding Summons since that kind of breaks the fluff of you, personally, transcending your mortal limits.

    --A Mix-style limit break along with something like Gil Toss
    These seem difficult to design and like big cans of worms.

    --Doublecast
    Gotcha covered! Check 8th level, Double Time!

    --A Mug-style limit break that lets you attack and steal from an enemy
    I suppose this would be appropriate for a 1st level Limit Break.

    --A Zantetsuken limit for one-hit kills
    Also a good idea.

    --An Osmosis-style limit for regaining spell points and/or spell slots while draining them from an enemy
    I'll consider it.

    --A health stealing Drain-style limit
    This one, again, I'm just not so sure of.

    What do other posters think about that? Is it wrong to give out powerful healing options for these Limit Breaks since they are fueled by your character being dealt damage in the first place?

    Great work so far!

    I'm concerned about the cost of limit breaks by level scaling linearly. Both hit points and damage don't in D&D, and since the breaks are fuelled by both, and have non-linearly scaling effects, too, it seems like the costs should also be non-linear.

    For Gain Through Pain, is the amount of Break Points granted by dealing damage to yourself in addition to the BP you get for taking that damage, or is it just a reminder that you'd be getting those BP anyway?

    Eh, making them too non-linear seems problematic to me, since you need to be able to afford to get hit a couple times in order to use the powerful ones. Do you have any suggestions?

    For Gain Through Pain, is the amount of Break Points granted by dealing damage to yourself in addition to the BP you get for taking that damage, or is it just a reminder that you'd be getting those BP anyway?
    It's just a reminder. I'll make that more clear.
