    I saw others build for lvl6. Personally I'm a big fan of lvl6 as well, since the first level of PrC tends to get online, so you can see where a character is headed.

    Posting interest! I really like high powered stuff. I already have a character in mind.

    Is there a list of homebrew/third party that have already been approved?

    If I want to use the Early Prestige option to be a Swiftblade from level 1 with Sorcerer casting, what tier would that count as?

    Edit: suppose I should ask before I put too much thought into this: how do you feel about characters who get a bunch of extra actions? The character I have in mind is a sort of speedster gish, so his actions would be spent whacking people with swords for the most part.

    Also considering making some kind of inhuman psionic/ druid guy, if too many actions is an issue

    Before I finish updating from 5th to 6th, how do you feel about taking PF's Soulknife and Elocater, over their less capable 3.5 counterparts?

    I'll admit to being a little confused over starting level, because it seems like it was 5th and then it's suddenly 6th?

    On the third page, FG said "It's looking like we'll be starting at level 5ish, so if others agree we can do 6." Then a couple people chimed in and said they're fine with 6. FG later responded "Looks like we are going with level 6."

    I'm using Early Prestige to start with the geomancer class, advancing sorcerer casting. My other side is paladin, partly because of Charisma synergy, but also significantly because of Battle Blessing feat. With geomancer, that should let me use most sorcerer spells as swift actions. Because I'm not picking top-notch spells -- mostly blasting in a fey/nature/holy theme -- I've been assuming that's still a Tier 2 combo. Sound right?

    Could just buy a bunch of Tools of Legend from War of the Lance, if they're allowed, but they really shouldn't be (250 gp for a +10 to any one skill? Yikes).

    Guess it can't hurt to ask: Tools of Legend y/n? I have no qualms with you saying no.

    So are we starting level 5 or 6? Once I know I should have a sheet ready.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    I am honestly curious. While I love the Erudite I was peaking into perhaps a more thematic class for a petal that I have never played. And I came across Shaman in PF.

    What would you want me to choose. A character who can select up to 8 different Wiz/Sorcerer spells to prepare a day. Or an Erudite that will end up with a lot more powers per day than a normal caster.

    Really considering a human swordsage//totemist going into telflammar shadowlord (and maybe avenger) with vampire bloodline levels. I want to try making Alucard from Castlevania. Would that be acceptable?

    And I do have a second idea that in many ways is much... simpler.


    Planned build is Evolutionist 20//Dreg Knight 20. What would he end up as? He is the march of entropy, the lord of rot and decay. He is that which cannot be stopped, for he just keeps coming, never stopping, never resting and never relenting. After all, in the end everything rots and dies. Mortals. Immortals. Gods. Concepts. Everything rots. Everything dies.

    All the while, the living avatar of primordial decay will be trudging along after his friends, trying to catch a pretty butterfly....

    Special announcement, everyone: The avalanche of Pathfinder requests is killing me, and while I don't want to ban them, I am going to offer a shiny free Special Power point to everyone who uses zero homebrew or Pathfinder classes, ACFs, archetypes, races or templates. A few feats are ok, as are quick and easy class fixes that are not complete overhauls, such as the Hexblade fix or the Shadowcaster fix.

    Yeah. Suck on that. I'm not even punishing creativity, I'm trying to buy rewarding moderation. That makes it different. It's ethical now.

    And the other request is to advance the Karsite's DR/magic as we move along since we are using the /+1,+2,+3.

    It is not very OP, but I'm obsessed with a Karsite
    You'd have to burn the Special Power/boon to keep advancing Master of Nine, but sure, you can have that.

    Advancing DR makes sense. DR/Magic defaults to +1 plus 1 per four levels.

    Troacctid's Warlock Homebrew [Some class features for Freelancer, some for invocations]

    Path of War (PF's Tome of Battle), specifically Hidden Blade to go with PF's already approved Rogue. I would prefer other parts if possible, but I'm not sure if it's received blanket approval.

    For Rogue I'm also requesting Vicious Opportunist, Defenses Aplenty and Coldhearted Precision. I'd like to request the 4th level ability of Vicious Opportunist be dropped, because:
    A) It's a potent focus down ability.
    B) It's not compatible with Hidden Blade.

    Finally, I'd like to request Yabusame. Specifically for it's single shot abilities for combining with sniping/A Channel weapon.
    Grod's Warlock is approved. For the rest, everything on its own looks reasonable, but there is so very much of it that I'm going to have to say you can have it for a Special Power point. Even then, using the Freelancer to patch different Warlock versions together makes me worry you are building a tier two blowtorch of the gods that can burn through anything. Please go for breadth of warlock abilities and not depth through too much stacking.

    Also, I'm just going to blanket approve Path of War at this point, because everyone and their grandma seems to want to use little bits of it for this 3.5 campaign.

    Yeah, you can have both. Just no stacking any single ability score to AC/other stuff twice.

    Brawler5//G.Rogue5//G.Shaper5

    Sheet (WIP): K8-T
    Android allowed at LA+1, Commando Construct allowed at LA+3. Brawler allowed. Rogue allowed. Shaper allowed.

    Not planning to combine the two, but whatever happens I want to show those elves what a truly long lifespan is (unless of course my character dies horribly long before age is an issue,which is admittedly likely)
    Greater Draconic Rite of Passage seems fine, it just puts you on par with wizards for new spell levels.

    Necropolitan is just flat out +0, no exp loss. Naturally though some people are biased against undead. Especially the ones who had to flee from a local undead apocalypse after a dungeon opened up in a hard to find basement in their hometown.

    Muscle Reaction is too strong for a normal feat, but I'll allow it as a regional feat.

    No list has been compiled. I'll put the most important ones in the OP at some point, but for now there is no list.
    Sorcerer base = Tier 2. If anything Swiftblade is a step down with all the lost spellcaster levels. We'll keep it tier 2, but only the first level loses spellcasting.
    No breaking the action economy, please. We'll be posting here on the forum, and people getting extra actions in the middle of other people's turns, who may then react by using immediate actions of their own... Let's not. It's different if, later on in the game, you're out doing solo spying or whatever, but with a group it just makes everything incredibly slow. Immediate actions remain in play, but as I stated in the OP, the Celerity line of spells is banned, as are similar effects. If someone finds a way to get an extra move action or add an extra strike or two to their full attack on their own turn, that's fine.

    ...this kinda means every prospective player is gonna be making requests.

    Speaking of which, I wanna make sure that the limitation is "no homebrew/PF material that isn't easy class fixes or feats", and that existing 3.5 ACFs are still on the table.

    All of his actions would be on his turn(aside from the normal immediate reaction). However, I'm beginning to like the idea of making a mini-eldritch horror. But, like, a good one.

    I kind of like the idea that it just showed up and started following the party around and helping out. And only sort of does that trope of communicating vague feelings instead of words.

    "Yeah, the weird jellyfish thing just kinda showed up one day, but it's chill, so we let it stay."

    Probably something like Psion//Evolutionist. No idea what my race could be - I'll just find the weirdest aberration I can afford, I think.

    I'm not incredibly familiar with psionics, so we'll see how this goes

    Lol I can see how you would get overwhelmed, my build isn't too crazy and doesn't have too much pathfinder so I am going to stick with it. If you want I can swap my pf paladin for the 3.5 paladin of tyranny, though I think stripping fear immunity is a lot more tame than another -2 to saves, stacked with curse, and Dark companion

    Astral Charms are pretty much... well, an arcane spell. Picked from any arcane spell list and you prepare them, but there are intervals where you can actually charge them. 0-1st can prep 2 charms a day, 2nd-3rd once a day, 4th-5th once a week, 6th-7th once a month and 8-9 are one a year. EXP and materials for said spell need to be provided when the charm is made, not invoked. Charms once made last forever until used... and there is no limit to the maximum number of astral charms that can be prepared, but again, can only make a limited number in various intervals.


    Still, will be plotting and making :)

    Can we take the "Extra Level" special ability more than once? The idea of playing a Commoner 11 with nothing else going for him sounds hilarious, but knowing if options like that are available might be neat.

    That would be fine. There are plenty of vampires in some parts of this world.

    Planned build is Evolutionist 20//Dreg Knight 20. What would he end up as? He is the march of entropy, the lord of rot and decay. He is that which cannot be stopped, for he just keeps coming, never stopping, never resting and never relenting. After all, in the end everything rots and dies. Mortals. Immortals. Gods. Concepts. Everything rots. Everything dies.

    All the while, the living avatar of primordial decay will be trudging along after his friends, trying to catch a pretty butterfly....
    I really like the Dreg Knight. First I've heard of it, but it's great. That said, you are not getting Improved Mettle without spending a Special Power point on it. It does not exist in official sources, and is quite a lot more useful than Improved Evasion.

    I am putting it at tier 2, because at eighth level it gets the power to ignore all immunities to ability score damage for the toxin, and it can keep applying it every turn. That's a major threat to most things, and is quite at home in tier 2 I think. The rest of the class is pretty solid as well, with strong defenses.

    That's fair. It's just getting a little much to go through it all, so I want to reduce the flood while still keeping the door open to anyone who is prepared to give up a little bit of power to do the weird thing they want to do.
    Speaking of which, I wanna make sure that the limitation is "no homebrew/PF material that isn't easy class fixes or feats", and that existing 3.5 ACFs are still on the table.
    Yeah, published 3.5 ACFs are unaffected.
    Can we take the "Extra Level" special ability more than once? The idea of playing a Commoner 11 with nothing else going for him sounds hilarious, but knowing if options like that are available might be neat.
    By default you cannot. I would be quite alright with a pure Commoner taking it as many times as it can afford, but I am very curious how you would make that build useful with only the normal feats and skill points and +2LA. Hell, for Commoner I would throw in a free All the Feats.

    By default Extra Level is only available once because I don't want full casters to be a whole spell level ahead of the party, but... I suppose I could remove the restriction for tier 4 and below. At two picks per level, it's pretty expensive though.

    I have a question regarding Paragon and ability score generation. Mainly, would it be instead of point buy, because I'm planning on, if possible, dropping mental abilities scores fairly badly and focusing on the mainly physical side for Malog Brin Krathmog. Bright he will not be.

    I have a request. Can we wave the alignment preqs on templates? I don't really want to be chaotic and it keeps me from choosing the deity that I want for hand crossbow proficiency and overall assassin sneakiness.

    Was our wealth by level the pathfinder standard of 16k?


    What are some of the factions we will be dealing with. Scarmiglione is my deity and I wanted to be associated with the most mischievous groups if at all possible.

Please go for breadth of warlock abilities and not depth through too much stacking.
    *Looks at the two points in the Tristalt I can't get out due to Freelancer*
    Ok, for this to work I'm going to drop to Freelancer/Rogue.

    Would you be ok with me spending my other special point on just making a list of homebrew invocations I'm using and flagging any that I think definitely need attention and any combos that are particularly powerful, along with a 'don't break my game' agreement by avoiding things like using multiweapon fighting and poorly thought out 'EB applies to all weapon attacks' invocations that would turn me into a murder blender and similar shenanigans. [Even if you say no, I would request invocations individually, divided by source, and would give such flags anyway and avoid such landmines.)

    Bonus for you, dropping Tristalt means almost all my points will be tied into warlock and the support abilities I deem 'necessary' not abilities like 'Apply Cha to X. Again.' Gonna make me much less self sustaining. I'll probably have to invest in hiding to heal now.

    Since this route requires me to actually buy my Warlock Invoking from Freelancer, how would you like to cost it with Freelancer? Normally it's 20 points at level one, +10 points for every additional spell level. However Warlocks gain only 4 grades of a wide variety of spell levels. This would be fine with normal warlock, less so with homebrew invocations.
    I'm thinking just cost it as regular 9th casting and calling it a day for fairness.
    Anyhow, I'ma start building my mighty merging mecha-warlock.

    Psion and Evolutionist are both considered tier 2, right?

    Also, does anyone know of any creatures that basically look like floating jellyfish? Cuz that's the look I'm going for

    Yes.
    Be aware it's your final teir that matters, and it may change depending on synergy. The DM may up your teir later if your build combos well.

    Would asking to double the amount of mutations gained be worth a special point? As it is, not going to invest overmuch in gear, because between a few feats and the power of adding lots of acid/poison/taint/vile energy to his melee attacks... well, he's mostly going to be a pretty blunt instrument.

    I've been considering a few dumb commoner builds, but I don't think I'm going with them. What I'm currently looking at is...well, a few things.

    Batman: (LA: Int +4) Human going Factotum 6 with All The Feats 3, Divine Boost (Int) Paragon 2, and Skill Genius. I've got +25 to Int skills and +18 to the rest. Pick up Knowledge Devotion, Darkstalker, and as many iterations of Font Of Inspiration as I can get my grubby lil' hands on. Goal here is to have so much inspiration I can get more SA than the rogue when I want to, while also randomly adding 13 to my attacks, damage, saves, skills, and AC.

    Voldemort: Human Lich going Generic Spellcaster 6//Factotum 6 with All The Feats, Divine Boost (Int), and Spell Genius 2. (I'm assuming Generic Spellcaster is T2, since it's spontaneous caster with similar spells known to sorcerer, better list access, and fewer spells per day. Absolutely massive pool of spells known and lots of spell slots to use. Feats will go towards caster-boosting stuff, metamagics I feel are worth the full round action (not many), and Font Of Inspiration

    Samurai Jack: Advanced Human going Jiriku Monk 6//Grod Paladin 6 with All The Feats, Paragon 2, and either Winning or Luck's Chosen. Take the dragon mag feat that turns Paladin stuff into Wis-based, maybe take some ACFs for both of those classes, probably pick up Vow Of Poverty (3.5 version or some homebrew version). End result should be a guy with Wis to a bunch of stuff with decent combat and skills.

    Steven Universe: Crystal Creature/Mineral Warrior Human going Evolutionist 6//The Evolutionist Anomoly 6 with Divine Boost (Cha), Early Prestige, and Regeneration (Adamantine/Sonic). Take "Vow Of Poverty" but substitute normal benefits for Evolutionist benefits (more mutations and teratomorphisms, essentially), so that I get an absolute ton of mutations every level and can use my TEA chimerisms to represent SU-style Fusion with "cracked gems" Steven will have on his person. Only one I'm currently definitely including is Spinel, both because it's obvious what mutations to take to represent her abilities, and because she's on my mind a lot cuz of the movie.

    Edit: And how could I forget:

    Frisk: Human (LA +4 Cha) Commoner 6, full diplomacy ranks and Turn Back Time 10 (10/day, 512 rounds).

    Would you allow Kung Fu Genius to work with Swordsages?
