    Default A New Base Class: The Cardcaptor (Discussion Thread)

    WARNING: Please post in this thread, as there is so much that I'm posting for this, it wouldn't fit into the original post count I used (and that's saying something, since the normal limit is something like 50000 characters), forcing me to make an Organized List Thread. Thanks for understanding! Organized List Thread is HERE!



    So I've been looking all over this forum and a few others, and it seems like nobody has made a Cardcaptor Sakura class system. To solve this, I propose my own which I've been working on for a while. Please tell me what you think.

    So without further adieu, I give you, The Cardcaptor.

    NOTE: Clow is pronounced "Crow."

    Note: This is still a work in progress. I am still making the spell list for the class, the rest of the class features, the skill list, and the attribute specialization. Any help would be appreciated.

    While I understand that the series as a clamp series was (softly) into almost every kind of perversion that's common, and while the mistype was fairly amusing considering that, I think you should correct this.

    Though I am working on the powers, I need to find a way to both put in and separate paragraphs in a table. If anyone knows how to do that, I'd be grateful for the know-how to do it...

    To give you a bit of a sampling of what I've got, here's two cards which, while unfinished, do have basic stats for both powers and active forms.

    The Dash:
    Stat Block: same as cat with a few differences: Higher base land speed, Card Powers(ex), etc.

    Clow Power: Can cast Expeditious Retreat on Cardcaptor who uses card at will, does not stack...

    Sakura Power: Still working on it, either Mass version, MUCH higher speed boost, or maybe both...


    The Sweet:
    Stat Block: Basically the same as Pixie with a few differences: no sleep arrows, Card Powers(ex), etc.

    Clow Power: Create Food and Water at will...

    Sakura Power: Can cast Heroes' Feast once per day.


    What do you think?

    I'm currently Working on a Spell List for this class, and have made the Alpha List. I plan to cut out many of them, but before I do, I thought I should ask you what you think. Please note that some of the spells on the list are just there to help me remember the abilities of some of the cards, so if you see a spell that looks like it's just a restatement of a Card's Effect, don't worry about it.

    Anyways, here's the Alpha List.

    Hey Lestro! I just registered so I could respond on this thread! I love what you're doing so far.

    Your card effect example seem good so far. As for the spell list, I'm not ENTIRELY sold on the 6th level spell cap. Both because there's Cards that arguably go over it, and because Sakura was meant to be the most powerful magician in the Clamp Multiverse after succeeding Clow Reed (and given that dude has Wish as a spell-like ability, WOAH).

    Then again, I understand the need for spell balance. But if you're going to put a cap on the spell levels instead of allowing 9th level spells, I would put the cap at 8th level. Minimum.

    But that's just me.

    Also, fun fact. You're actually not the first person on this board to attempt a Cardcaptor class, though yours is more detailed. kwanzaabot posted a build in 2008. It's here

    Thank you for the compliment and welcome to the playground; "you'll like it here."

    Also, thank you for showing me this; before posting this, I tried to find another Cardcaptor class, but couldn't find any. Thanks for finding what I could not.

    Hehe, you're welcome. And though I just registered, I've been lurking for years! You can pat yourself on the back, it means I find your current project to be top tier intriguing!

    Hopefully that link helps serve as a guide or contrast in future edits. I can't wait for this to be complete and playable!

    I don't see any that I'd cut. I notice there is many more arcane spells than there are divine spells. I understand that a lot of these are actually card effects or otherwise be cut, in the final product I'd try to keep the Arcane:Divine ratio as close to 1:1 as you possibly can, given the fluff about how intertwined they are in the entire class.

    Agreed. That's something I've been aiming for from the beginning. I'm also working on a Character Flaw called Fear of Ghosts, which the stat block for Sakura will most certainly have.

    Also, what do you think about adding an ability that enables the spell Shillelagh to apply to their Sealing Wand (I just updated again to include what type of equipment each Sealing Wand is; the Bird and Star versions both count as clubs, while the Guardian, being 3 meters long, counts as a quarterstaff)?

    To put line breaks in a table, use the code [br]. I would however note that there is an error with the code for the forums which causes it to change to <br> any time the post is edited or previewed before posting, requiring that they be changed back each time (as the <br> does not convert to a line break).

    Anyway, I like the look of the class in general so far. I would however be interested in seeing a version that is less made to follow the events of the manga/show instead just being a character that draws on the power of the Clow Cards like a member of this class (though such a version can wait till the current one is completed along with the cards).

    Thank you so much! This will enable me to rapidly increase the rate at which this is made.

    Do you have any objections to the spell list in its Alpha form, and what do you think the highest spell level should be?

    Please note that this class is supposed to be Tier 1.

    If Tier 1 is the goal, then why are you limiting the spell list at all? Instead of limiting it on a scale basis, I'd do so on a fluff basis, like "Cardcaptors cannot cast Necromancy or Raise Dead-type spells" or something.

    Personally, I'd rather you focused on making the class complete and playable before getting sidtracked by statblocking NPCs, artifacts, and the like.

    If you had to do an artifact though, I would recommend Kaho Mizuki's Moon Bell, since it was created by Clow Reed to serve a vital plot function in the Final Judgment and whatnot.

    MAJOR UPDATE!!!!! YAY!!!!!

    I've added card info for multiple cards, and am proud to announce that The Big, The Little, and The Dash are almost complete, with The Dash being the closest.

    Advice needed for specific cards...only cards that don't need this are The Firey, The Watery, The Windy, The Earthy, The Sweet, The Nothing, The Nameless, The Hope, The Jump, The Sword, The Shield, and The Fly. All other cards are in need of assistance. Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Default Re: A New Base Class: The Cardcaptor

    Yay, an update! I was starting to get worried for this project! Alright, lemme take a crack at this.

    The Shadow should be easy enough. There's plenty of Shadow powers in D&D you can slap on, and you could even perhaps have Shadow Walking at a Sakura power...or perhaps have the Sakura power be something like combining with or assisting Illusion...

    ...With Illusion being self explanatory, and it's Sakura powers being (with Shadow's help or not) something like Shadow Conjuration and other powers where illusions are "partially real"?

    In any case, "Greatest Desire" should be a Clow ability for Illusion, where it projects what the target most desires and wants, even if the Cardcaptor doesn't know what it is.

    Float...I'm thinking Feather Fall, Levitation, and the like.

    Song can replicate a Bard's class abilities, like Inspire Courage or something. It creates music through a Ghost Sound effect.

    Shot is Magic Missle.

    Change = Mind Switch. Maybe Polymorph as a Sakura power?

    Voice can be stuff like Magic Mouth.

    Lock should be simple enough. Wizard Lock and the like. As a Sakura power, perhaps things like Imprisonment and Freedom?

    Create should be simple. The Creation powers, from Minor to True, depending on what you feel appropriate.

    Move can have stuff like Mage Hand and Telekinesis.

    Maze obviously needs the Maze spell. C'mon now. :D

    Through should stress Etherealness, as a way of passing through objects.

    Plenty of powers to use for Dream. Perhaps simple Dream spells, and it's Sakura power includes the epic power of Dreamscape?

    Light and Darkness should work in tandem, however you plan to use them.

    That's my preliminary shot. Is this helpful?

    thats sad to hear, i love pathfinder, finding it more balanced overall than 3.5

    the problem is unless you allow every module and companion guide and what not, the list to pull from is only 8 Core books (3 bestiaries, 4 Core Books, 1 Race Guide).

    PS: please clean up the class post. spaces... paragraph breaks... im dying!!!

    Towers, a game played for coin in the gutters and back alleys of cities, uses a Harrow deck to make or break fortunes. Most participants don’t realize that the game of Towers is based off six ancient Varisian philosophies, which the Varisians correspond to six of the towers of Desna’s palace (the seventh tower represents the unknown future—a subject of endless fascination to a harrower). Fortunetellers use the six towers to influence and inspire their meditation, but some forge a strange and wondrous connection to the six principles. Those who learn to channel and wield this power develop amazing abilities tied to the use of a Harrow deck and claim the title of harrower.

    A Harrow deck consists of 54 cards divided into six suits of nine cards. The six suits correspond to the six ability scores (hammer for Strength, key for Dexterity, shield for Constitution, book for Intelligence, star for Wisdom, and crown for Charisma). Each card in a suit ties in with one of the nine alignments, corresponding with the location of the symbol on the face of the card. In addition, each card has its own unique name, independent of its suit and alignment.

    Even if you do not have access to a Harrow deck, you can still play a harrower by using a d6 and a d10.

    Roll 1d6 to determine a card’s suit, as follows: 1—Strength, 2—Constitution, 3—Dexterity, 4—Intelligence, 5—Wisdom, 6—Charisma. The 1d10 determine its alignment, as follows: 1—LG, 2—NG, 3—CG, 4—LN, 5—N, 6—CN, 7—LE, 8—NE, 9—CE.

    Reroll results of 10. For most of the harrower’s class features, you need only roll the d6, which allows you to determine how many cards of each suit are drawn for a Harrow casting. Only the blessing of the Harrow and spirit deck class features pay attention to a card’s alignment.

    Requirements
    To qualify to become a harrower, a character must fulfill all the following criteria.
    Alignment: Must be chaotic, evil, good, or lawful (cannot be true neutral).
    Special: Ability to cast 3rd-level spells. Must be able to cast at least three divination spells.
    Special: Must own a Harrow deck.

    Class Skills (2 + Int bonus per level): Bluff, Concentration, Craft, Diplomacy, Knowledge (arcana), Knowledge (local), Knowledge (the planes), Perform, Profession, Spellcraft.

    The Harrower Hit Die: d6

    [/Table]

    Class Features
    The following are class features of the harrower prestige class.

    Spells: When a harrower gains a level (except for her first harrower level), she gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in a spellcasting class she belonged to before she added the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefits a character of that class would have gained. This essentially means that she adds the level of harrower to the level of whatever other spellcasting class she has.

    If the character had more than one spellcasting class before she became a harrower, she must choose to which class she adds each harrower level for the purposes of determining spells per day. As long as the harrower owns a Harrow deck, she gains access to the harrow spell >(Here)<, as if it were on her spell list as a 3rd-level spell (regardless of her spellcasting class). If the harrower prepares spells as a wizard, she prepares the spell from her Harrow deck instead of her spellbook.

    Blessing of the Harrow (Ex): The harrower may, once per day, perform a harrowing for herself and all allies within 20 feet of her. This harrowing takes 10 minutes, and allies to be affected by it must remain within 20 feet for the entire time. The harrower interprets the harrowing as normal. At the conclusion of the harrowing, count up suits of cards used in the reading. This harrowing provides a bonus based upon the suit with the most cards showing.

    In case of a tie, choose one suit. The bonus lasts for 24 hours. The suits grant morale bonuses as follows. Strength: +1 on attack rolls; Dexterity: +1 to AC; Constitution: +1 on weapon damage rolls; Intelligence: +1 on all skills; Wisdom: +1 on all saving throws; Charisma: +1 on caster level checks. All of these bonuses are insight bonuses.

    Harrow Casting (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, the harrower may, as she casts a spell, draw three cards from her Harrow deck. This adds both a somatic component (if the spell does not already have one) and a focus component to the spell, but does not add to the spell’s casting time. Depending on the harrower’s level, the cards she draws might change the parameters of her spell or grant her some other benefit, as described in each tower ability.

    The harrower gains all of the different tower abilities available to her. If she draws cards for which she has not yet gained use, those cards provide no benefit. Each card the harrower draws that are exact matches to her alignment count as two cards of the proper suit. A spell may not be affected by both Harrow casting and a metamagic feat. The harrower may use this ability a number of times per day equal to her class level.

    Tower of Intelligence (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability, for each card she draws from the suit of Intelligence she gains a +1 insight bonus on caster level checks made to penetrate Spell Resistance.

    Tower of Strength (Su): Beginning at 3rd level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability to augment a spell that inflicts damage to hit points, the spell deals +1 point of damage per die for each card from the suit of Strength she draws.

    Tower of Charisma (Su): Beginning at 4th level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability, for each card she draws from the suit of Charisma the save DC of the spell increases by +1.

    Spirit Deck (Su): A 5th-level harrower may, as a standard action, summon a shimmering, translucent Harrow deck that flies through the air and engulfs a target within 30 feet in a whirling cloud of knife-edged cards. The harrower then draws a number of Harrow cards equal to her harrower level, and the spirit deck deals damage based on the number of matches she draws.

    Each exact match (based on her alignment, as shown on the chart to the right) deals 5 points of damage, each partial match deals 3 points, and each non-matched card deals 1 point, and each opposite match deals 0 points. The harrower may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 1 + her Charisma modifier (minimum 1/day).

    Divination (Sp): A 6th-level harrower gains the ability to cast divination once per day as a spell-like ability. Her caster level equals her character level.

    Tower of Constitution (Ex): Beginning at 7th level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability, for each card from the suit of Constitution, she heals 3 points of damage.

    Tower of Dexterity (Su): At 8th level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability, for each card she draws from the suit of Dexterity, she gains a +1 insight bonus on Reflex saves and to AC until the beginning of her next turn.

    Tower of Wisdom (Su): At 9th level, whenever the harrower uses her Harrow casting ability, for each card she draws from the suit of Wisdom, she increases the spell’s effective caster level by +1.

    Reading the Signs (Ex): Whenever a 10th-level harrower draws cards from any deck of cards, she may draw an extra card and choose one to discard. The harrower may not use this ability when performing a harrowing. She may use this ability at will, but she must wait 1d4 rounds between each use.

    {table=head]{colsp=3}Table: Matches and Opposites
    Alignment | Opposite | Partial Matches
    LG |CE |NG, CG, LN, LE
    NG |NE |LG, CG, N, NE
    CG |LE |LG, NG, CN, CE
