    Default 3.5 Jorm's Homebrew Playtest!

    Hey Playground! The illustrious Jormengand and I decided to open a thread to playtest their four recent ubermartial classes, the Veteran, the Ascetic, and the Mundane Trickster, and their newest class, the Berserker, found in his extended signature and on the homebrew subforum. My proposal is this:

    - Tier 1 and 2 base classes only (i.e. Wizard, Druid, Sorc.), along with the four aforementioned classes, which are designed to be T1 martial characters. This is to test their ability to perform effectively alongside the established T1 and 2 classes.
    - Mid to high-level play, as to catch the classes at or near their peak power.
    - Combat heavy, as to test the classes practical effectiveness alongside the Wizard and its ilk, though roleplay and social encounters are always welcome.
    - Invitational: Jorm and I request to be automatically accepted into the game, and Jorm may wish to request additional players of their choosing.
    - Possible Pathfinder on request, depending on how Jorm and the rest of the players feel about such a proposition.
    - Optimization is to be encouraged, but infinite loops and aged Gouda is not. Dragonwrought kobolds mostly fine, sarrukhs and candles of invocation aren't.

    Looks tasty, if this finds a GM I'd probably throw my hat in the ring as a potential player.

    I'm planning on playing the Ascetic, since you know, it's apparently a good monk or something.

    Edit: Also fixed the pronouns.

    In any case, I'll probably go MT, though I might go zerker. Depends what everyone else is.

    I would mostly be interested in the utility/support caster/manifester or buffer role, I have a few rather overtly exotic (and some rather straightforward) builds in mind that might fit a high-powered mid- to high level playtest better than a low level Core-only adventure (and being the enabler allows the tested classes in focus to shine, while subtly skewing the actual results of the playtest ). With a prospective Druid in line my Arcane Hierophant will probably have to go, though...

    Hookay, I will bump this up for a prospective DM one more time, then I will pitch my world, which is funnily enough, meant to be martially inclined/low magic.

    So if you're a tier 1 melee, you should probably do a bit better then me in combat. (As a druid) while I have other skills correct?

    Do you want me in melee to see who's better as a test, or stay back?

    Len did say she only wanted my brew in the game, though I'd quite like something to test against. Though technically, you could play a devoted specialist/feragenitor if you wanted to be a druid while using my stuff, but... yeah...

    7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?

    If it's not too late to supply interest, I'd like to play an Ascetic. Looks pretty interesting, and I'm tempted to try something unorthodox with it.

    The class itself is ridiculously versatile, so we could explore two different sides of it.

    Or I'll just go Veteran, I guess.

    Yeah, I was going to edit my post to say that, but wifi cut out before I could. You can keep playing Ascetic.

    Does anyone have race suggestions that boost WIS, but don't penalize too much in the way of other things?

    Edit: But other than a castle/place of residence, there's really nothing.

    Assorted alchemical items, gear made from various exotic materials, and residential areas are the only things that come to mind.

    As for races, I'm gonna go with Lesser Aasimar if I'm going with the Ascetic. Not sure what to use if I go Veteran.

    Edit: Seems like Vow of Poverty might just be the way to go?

    Edit 2: I'm tempted to just get a bunch of items made out of Riverine and call it a day.

    Yeah, but normal VoP is meh, even with these classes. Maybe one of the multitude of VoP fixes could work, though I'm tired of playing VoP characters.
