    In the spirit of a fresh new thread, the Transcendent has a fresh new capstone. Feel free to let me know what you think, I'm still not sure on how good it is.

    Fluff will be written in the next 24 hours, if all goes according to plan.

    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    Writing of that calibre wrecks... my head, so I'm going to write all the class features in plain text once I've recovered.

    Why is it that relatively simple tasks require so much effort? Whai?

    Post Re: Base Class Contest Chat Thread V: I Scored at the Top of My Base Class

    The Antiquarian has been uploaded.
    I've never submitted a class to a contest and it's been a while since I stepped backwards into 3.5e, so let me know if anything seems out of place.

    This is just a rough draft, so an issue I'm aware of is that wording isn't all consistent and normalized.
    I am also aware that save DC are not consistent and normalized.
    I am also aware that artifacts currently work in a strange way that makes them a lot less useful when non-antiquarians are using them, contrary to the stated option of having the antiquarian be an item supplier who stays away from combat. This is on the 'to fix' list.

    Do you take suggestions for contest topics? I would personally be interested in seeing a contest focused on what tv-tropes would call Reluctant Warrior, or possibly a Technical Pacifists. Any character that dislikes harming others but still fits into a 3.5 world where combat is part of the game (and doesn't make the Gm build the game entirely around them the way an apostle of peace or broken diplomancer build can).

    I think the concept could allow lots of interesting mechanics and lore for explaining why one that hates combat has developed and uses his combat skills. The easiest idea being a pure healer with no damage abilities, but I'd love to see the more interesting ideas, a monk variant sworn to never take a life who can only deal nonlethal damage, an initiator with a new set of maneuvers focused on protecting allies (or even enemies) from harm instead of dealing damage. A Reluctant Warrior who may only fight to protect others and who builds up points of Remorse every time he harms an enemy which weakens his attacks until he resolves his remorse by healing or aiding another. A Diplomat-warrior, with buffs to diplomacy and ability to make rush diplomacy checks in combat, but combined with fighting skills which activate only on those who refuse to be reasoned with to knock sense into them. A pacifist healer who was infected by some curse or inflection which drives them crazy with bloodlust, who switches between supportive magic backliner and raging melee killer as he loses control of his curse as the encounter progresses.

    Anyways, I'd love to see it as a contest theme at some point, if you ever get around to it :)

    Class Update
    I have added another artifact to the antiquarian's class list which was missing from the initial release. I've normalized save DCs, and I've added feats.
    The final update, clarifying the language of the class, artifacts and feats as well as doing any last minute revisions will be available soon.

    Oh boy. In the past 2 days the scope on my class increased significantly. Hoping I can get it done by the deadline.

    -Introduction (1/4)
    -Class fluff (0)
    -Class features (1/2)
    -Paintings (concepts) (1)
    -Paintings (Writeups) (4/5)
    -Items, Feats (1/2)
    -Adaptations/In world (1/4)
    -Balance pass (0)
    -Editing Pass (0)
    -Media Collection (0)
    -Formatting pass (0)
    In the past two days, more than one of these numbers moved backwards.

    The long overdue fluff for the Transcendent has arrived. My unfortunate habit of not working on a project until a day or two prior to the deadline hit full force on this one. Hopefully, it's not as terrible as it should be, for the result of a late night's writing.

    And with that, the class is complete.

    I've decided to drop out of the contest- I just couldn't work up the inspiration to finish the class, so it'll probably stay unfinished for a while. Thanks for the opportunity in any case.

    I was thinking of doing a small final update, but seeing some of the last minute submissions I feel like I should polish Antiquarian into like... 80 Artifacts, 20 Feat masterpiece on the last day.
    Ugh, something to think about for tomorrow I suppose. Good luck to everyone. @_@

    Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!
    Does this include PrC support or would that be against the spirit of the contest?

    I've really got to participate in a future one. Need to start flexing my homebrew muscles again.

    The inventor had PrCs and a variant class as part of its entry and it won, so I assume it's not against the spirit.

    I'm not making it this time. Way too much on my plane this past month.

    I scrapped my original idea and tried to make a class about utilizing a gigantic hand cannon for everything. Would have tried to make ammo and cannon customization its abilities, but it got way too complicated real fast.




    So, contest is likely over. what new themes does everyone want?

    I would love to see one of the old magic systems revisited. (I'm sure that's been done before).

    Invocations, Magic of Incarnum, Anything from the Tome of Magic or Tome of Battle, etc.
