    Is Haley Starshine not awesome? Also, the sneaky sniper is iconic.

    Not all rogues have bows. Its just a build.

    I'm personally down with the idea of a 'sniper' rogue using a giant crossbow to pick his targets.

    It this point, I'm pretty sure the bow and crossbow will be mechanically identical, so that will be a flavour choice on the player's part.

    I have created enough Marshall material that one could build a level 1 Marshall of any build. How do you think it balances against the 4e Warlord?

    Feedback would be HIGHLY appreciated.

    I am actively setting up a kickstarter funding thing. The money will be used to pay freelance artists. If the funding is successful, I would be more than happy to pay the artists currently working for free.

    However, we are in need of a promotional video. I am not confident in my own ability to make one, so I am asking for help. Anyone willing to make a video would have my eternal gratitude.

    Finally, I ask you to - if at all possible - donate. Every dollar helps.

    I notice a disturbing lack of fluff description.

    Might you need some written?

    Well, you're more talented than me. I can only write papers, and stuff. I really like drawing though, so I am glad you are taking over the non-drawing bits.

    (Note: I would really like to see this video. Please add a link.)

    There is no video at the moment. I'm looking for someone to make one.

    It really just needs to be a promotional video that explains the project - animated or live action. Nothing fancy.

    Indiegogo won't let us launch the campaign until we have one. And I can't use kickstarter because I live in Canada.

    Updated the Rogue specializations. Replaced the Enforcer with the Skirmisher.

    I have started building the human race. I have the fluff, as well as level 1 and level 6 racial powers. Soon I will add more powers and some racial feats.

    I would appreciate feedback on the fluff as much as I would crunch. Also, bare in mind that I am making racial powers marginally more powerful.

    Mr. Hobbit,

    I have a plan to go about the iconic characters. (Speaking of which, is background needed?) I plan to draw each of them in photoshop over the next few weeks, and every week do line art and background with my beloved mentor. Is this acceptable?

    Of course it is acceptable.

    Also, I am leaving them intentionally name and background free.

    Hey, Mr. Hobbit, as your imp-artist totally not bound to a desk, is there going to be a print or PDF sourcebook. If so, what credit will be given? Do you know what art will be used? How many sourcebooks?

    Thanks.

    The game is probably not going to be distributed in solid form, but there will certainly be PDFs. The artists will receive credit. I'm not sure how many supplement books there will be, or what art will be used.

    Crazy idea that may or may not be popular:

    Magic Sword only has 10 levels. Demigods, deities, archfiends, and elder dragons are levels 11-15. However, characters are about as powerful as Fourth Edition characters of equivalent level.

    There are three xp advancement tracks. Fast (which is identical to Fourth Edition advancement), Normal (which is half the speed), and Slow (one third the speed).

    I'm not dead set on the idea. Its just something I wanted to put out there.

    So, for one campaign the DM will choose an xp track for the whole party, depending on how fast they want the party to level up?

    I see where you are coming from, and the 10 levels are not carved in stone. However, I would like to submit some food for thought:

    In the D&D Fourth Edition Neverwinter Campaign Setting, the Wizards besically did what I just proposed, only on a less official level. All characters, if I recall correctly, were levels 1 to 10, even though that didn't fit with the rest of the cannon. And it worked beautifully.

    10th level characters are already pretty superhuman. A 10th level fighter can absorb a staggering amount of damage, preform martial disciplines that are physically impossible, and put up a good fight against a house-sized dragon. A tenth level cleric and bring companions back from the dead and call down the wrath of his god to smite hordes of foes at once. A 10th level wizard can teleport and cast epic magic.
