Barbarian

Post by Jes »

Barbarian


Modified Rages
  • The Barbarian is a brute of tremendous, if reckless power, thus their raging feats have been modified to reflect this. The following Rages replace the Normal and Greater rages, and work with the Thundering and Terrifying Rage feats if they are present. Their duration is 5 + CON modifier rounds. The Intensity and Ferocity attacks are set by a widget that must be found in-game.

    Note: There is a one-turn cooldown after raging before you may do so again.
    • Standard Rage
      This is the normal Barbarian Rage.
      • +1 Attack per 4 Barbarian levels, capped at +6.
        +1 Damage per 4 Barbarian levels, capped at +5.
        +1 Will saves per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        +1 Fortitude save per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        +2 Hit Points per Barbarian level.
      Penalized -2 to Armor Class. This is voided at Barbarian level 17 and above.
    • Unyielding Rage
      10 Barbarian Levels
      A focused Barbarian rage that channels their fury into raw speed, ignoring wounds as they blitz around the battlefield.
      • +1 Regeneration per 4 Barbarian levels.
        +1 Dodge AC per 6 Barbarian levels, capped at +4 AC.
        +1 Fortitude save per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        +1 Will save per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        +1 Reflex save per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        +3 Hit Points per Barbarian level.
        +1 AB per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
    • Ferocity Attack
      15 Barbarian Levels
      A focused Barbarian rage that sends the barbarian into a true frenzy of whipping blades and destructive might. The price for pure offense however, is a lack of defense.
      • +1 Attack Per Round, stacks with Haste.
        +2 Damage per 4 Barbarian levels, capped at +12.
        +1 Fortitude save per 8 Barbarian levels, capped at +3.
        50% percent move speed increase, doesn't stack with Haste.
        -4 penalty to Dodge Armor Class.
        +1 Hit Point per Barbarian level.
    • Mighty Rage
      Mighty Rage gives the following benefits:
      • +1 Universal Saves/7 Barbarian Levels
        +5 Vampiric Regen
        +10 Bonus HP/Barbarian Level.
    • Thundering Rage
      This rage imparts your weapon with 1d8 Sonic Damage and On Hit: Stun DC 20.
    • Terrifying Rage
      This rage enhances the barbarian with a fear aura.

      Barbarian Fear Aura - Will DC calculation: Base intimidation (no gear)/3 + Barbarian Level/2 + Con Modifier + 1 (if you have skill focus intimidation) + 3 (if you have Epic skill focus intimidation). If the save is made the target then gets temporary immunity to avoid shuffle stepping and spamming the aura.

Druid

Post by Jes »

Druid


One Thousand Faces
  • One Thousand Faces feat gives you a wider range of animals and humanoid creatures to shift into. In order to learn this, you must have received tutoring from a druid or shifter with this feat. You may request the feat to use this ability from the DMs after sufficient training with your tutor has been done.

Skills
  • These skills are now added as class skills to the Druid skill list.
    • Spot
    • Listen

Spells
  • These spells are automatically added to the druidic spellbook.
    • Cat's Grace
      As per the default spell.
    • Eagle's Splendor
      As per the default spell.
    • Endurance
      As per the default spell.
    • Fox's Cunning
      As per the default spell.
    • Owl's Wisdom
      As per the default spell.
    • Flame Weapon
      As per the default spell.
    • Magic Weapon
      As per the default spell.
    • Greater Magic Weapon
      As per the default spell.

Elemental Shape & Wildshape
  • Elemental Shape and Wildshape has been completely overhauled to have both an increase in power and utility. In addition, there are now three stages of power instead of two. For determining the power of the Elemental Shape, druid and shifter levels are added together. Wildshape only scales into epic forms for druid only.

    These shapes are obtained with the following amount of druid/shifter levels:
    • Level 16: Elemental Shape
    • Level 20: Greater Elemental Shape
    • Level 25+: Elder Elemental Shape
    These shapes are obtained with the following amount of druid levels:
    • Level 5 -> Level 12 -> Level 25
      • Pig, pink -> Boar -> Dire Boar = (Physical DPS)
      • Brown Bear -> Grizzly -> Dire Bear = (Tank)
      • Dog -> Wolf -> Dire Wolf = (Generalist)
      • Skunk -> Badger -> Dire Badger = (High AB)
      • Lynx -> Cougar -> Dire Cougar = (Sneak/DPS)
    NB: Shifter AC progression does not apply to these shapes.

    For a detailed list of the changes to these shapes, see The Druid & Shifter Spreadsheet. (last updated 04/02/2016 - This is out of date, sorry! Need someone to go through it again.)

Warlock

Post by Jes »

Warlock


At this time, Warlock is a request-only base class emulated by taking Bard levels. No other class can be used to emulate this.



Warlocks are powerful individuals who harness supernatural powers; these powers are inborn or gained abilities, not spells. Whether the beneficiary of inborn talents from generations past, or the resulting power of a pact with a higher being, warlocks stand apart from their spellcasting counterparts in many distinct ways.

Warlock pacts are created with fey, fiends of the lower planes, elementals of great power or other creatures who call home to hostile and savage worlds. The terms of such a pact and reasons vary greatly depending on the person in question - some may do it simply out of a lust for power, while some out of desperation or a belief that the "ends justify the means". Regardless of their reasons, the powers warlocks wield are devious at best, and at worst, twisted and destructive. Warlocks tend to be wanderers due to the hostility they face from the commonfolk who distrust their strange powers, and only the most foolish (or powerful) of their ilk wield their eldritch gifts openly.

A warlock does not prepare or cast spells as other wielders of arcane magic do. Instead, he possesses a repertoire of attacks, defenses, and abilities known as invocations that require him to focus the wild energy that suffuses his soul. A warlock can use any invocation he knows at will.

  • Requirements
    Base Class Emulation: Bard
    Alignment: Any evil or any chaotic

    Hit die: d6
    Proficiencies: Light armor, shields and light weapons
    Skill Points: 4 + INT modifier
    Base Attack Progression: +3/4
    Primary Saving Throws: Reflex, Will
    Class Skills: Appraise, Bluff, Concentration, Craft Armor, Craft Trap, Craft Weapon, Discipline, Heal, Hide, Listen, Lore, Move Silently, Parry, Perform, Persuade, Pick Pocket, Spellcraft, Taunt, Tumble, Use Magic Device


    Abilities
    Level 1: Eldritch Blast: A warlock attacks his foes with Eldritch power, using baleful magical energy to deal damage and sometimes impart other debilitating effects. An Eldritch blast deals 1d6 points of magical damage at 1st level and increases by 1d6 every other level (up to 15d6) starting at level 4. There is no saving throw with this attack, but spell resistance can negate it. This power can be used at will.
    • An Eldritch Blast is a ranged touch attack that affects a single target.
    • An Eldritch Blast may have one Blast Shape assigned to it to modify the radius and how the target resists it, and one Eldritch Essence to modify its damage type and additional effects.
    • Warlocks have a -20% Arcane Spell Failure bonus when using Eldritch Blast, allowing them to wear armor and shields.
    • It is a weapon-like spell (critical hit on a roll of 20, double damage on a critical hit).
    • Spell penetration feats apply as per-normal to warlock spell resistance checks.
    • Due to NWN engine limitations, Haste does not apply to actions per round when using Eldritch widgets.

    Level 2: Eldritch Lore: A warlock can use detect magic as the spell at will. His caster level equals his class level. This follows our rules on PnP spells.

    Note that the following ring can be requested by any Warlock that's level 22 (with at least 19 Warlock levels). It costs 5 DCs. As it emulates class features, you cannot remove it afterward - thus it takes up a ring slot permanently. This is why it is optional and price-reduced! (Note: If you're caught taking it off, the ring may be removed without DC refund, as it is largely a matter of trusting the player not to take it off.)
    • Warlock Trait Ring
      • +7 Soak 5 Damage
      • 10/- Elemental Damage
      • 10/- Elemental Damage
      • +2 Regeneration
      • 2/Day Monstrous Regeneration
      This ring emulates the Level 3, 8, and 10 Warlock abilities outlined below, which have been modified slightly for Amia from PnP.

    Level 3: Damage Reduction: Fortified by the supernatural power flowing in his body, a warlock becomes resistant to physical attacks at 3rd level and above, gaining 1/- damage resistance. At 7th level and every four levels thereafter, a warlock's damage resistance improves, up to 5. (+7 Soak 5 Damage)


    Level 8: Fiendish Resilience: A warlock knows the trick of supernatural resilience. Once per day, as a free action, he can enter a state that lasts for 2 minutes. While in this state, the warlock gains +1 regeneration per round. At 13th level, a warlock's supernatural resilience improves. When in his fiendish resilience state, he gains fast healing +2 regeneration per round. At 18th level, a warlock's fiendish resilience improves to +5 regeneration per round. (+2 Regeneration, 2/Day Monstrous Regeneration)


    Level 10: Elemental Resistance: At 10th level and higher, a warlock has resistance 5 against any two of the following energy types: acid, cold, electricity, fire, and sonic. Once the types are chosen, this energy resistance cannot be changed. At 20th level, a warlock gains resistance 10 against the two selected types of energy. (10/- to two elemental damage)


    Level 12: Imbue Item: A warlock can use his supernatural power to create magic items, even if he does not know the spells required to make an item. This can be emulated through any crafting feat you wish to take, but you must have taken at least one of them. Craft Magical Arms is new for EE Amia and is especially appropriate as emulation of this ability.


Eldritch Blast Shapes
  • These abilities modify the range, target(s), or area of a Warlock's Eldritch blast. Unless otherwise noted, the Eldritch blast does normal damage. All four shapes come with their own widget and are gained upon taking the class, though they are not usable until the Warlock gains the required level. A Warlock gains a new shape every 5 levels, beginning at level 1 and ending at 15.

    No Shape
    • Unlocks at Level 1.
      This blast will strike a single target with a ranged touch attack, dealing double damage on a natural roll of 20.

    Eldritch Chain
    • Unlocks at Level 5.
      This blast shape will arc from the first target and deal half damage to a secondary target. You can strike a target for every five caster levels, though you may not hit the same creature more than once in a single chain. The chain ends with any misses.

    Eldritch Sphere
    • Unlocks at Level 10.
      The eldritch sphere deals the normal eldritch blast damage to all targets in a 5 meter radius around the caster. This is not a ray attack, so it requires no ranged touch attack. Any creature in the area of the sphere can attempt a Reflex save for half damage.

    Eldritch Doom
    • Unlocks at Level 15.
      This blast shape invocation allows you to invoke your eldritch blast as the dreaded eldritch doom. This causes bolts of mystical power to lash out and savage all targets within a 20 foot area. This is not a ray attack, so it requires no ranged touch attack. Each target can attempt a Reflex save for half damage.


Eldritch Essences
  • Essences modify the damage type of the Eldritch blast, as well as adding extra effects to the attack. The Warlock gains a new essence every 3 levels, beginning at level 1 and ending at level 21. All essences respect spell resistance unless stated otherwise.

    Eldritch Blast
    Unlocks at Level 1.
    An eldritch blast is a ray with a range of 60 feet. It deals 1d6 points of magical damage at 1st level and increases by 1d6 every other level (up to 15d6) starting at level 4. There is no saving throw with this attack, but spell resistance can negate it. This power can be used at will.


    Hindering Blast
    Innate Level: 6
    Unlocks at Level 3.
    In addition to normal eldritch blast damage, the hindering blast forces any creature struck to make a Will save or become slowed. A slowed creature moves and attacks at a drastically reduced rate, taking a -1 penalty on attack rolls, -4 penalty on AC, and -1 Reflex saves and moving at half its normal speed. Multiple slow effects don't stack.


    Hellrime Blast
    Innate Level: 4
    Unlocks at Level 6.
    A hellrime blast deals cold damage. Any creature struck by the attack must make a Fortitude save or take a -4 penalty to Dexterity for 10 minutes. The Dexterity penalties from multiple hellrime blasts do not stack.


    Beshadowed Blast
    Innate Level: 4
    Unlocks at Level 9.
    Any living creature struck by a beshadowed blast must succeed on a Fortitude save or be blinded for 1 round, giving it a 50% chance to miss in combat, removing any Dexterity bonuses to AC, adding an additional -2 penalty to AC, and causing it to move at half speed.


    Brimstone Blast
    Innate Level: 3
    Unlocks at Level 12.
    A brimstone blast deals fire damage. Any creature struck by a brimstone blast must succeed on a Reflex save or catch on fire, taking 2d6 points of fire damage per round until the duration expires. The fire damage persists for 1 round per five class levels you have.


    Utterdark Blast
    Innate Level: 8
    Unlocks at Level 15.
    An utterdark blast deals negative energy damage, which heals undead creatures instead of damaging them (much like inflict spells). Any creature struck by the attack must make a Fortitude save or gain two negative levels. The negative levels fade after 1 hour. If a target ever has as many negative levels as Hit Dice, it dies.


    Vitriolic Blast
    Innate Level: 6
    Unlocks at Level 18.
    A vitriolic blast deals acid damage, and is formed from conjured acid, making it different from all other eldritch essences because it ignores spell resistance. Creatures struck by a vitriolic blast automatically take an extra 2d6 points of acid damage on following rounds. This acid damage persists for 1 round per five class levels you have.


    Noxious Blast
    Innate Level: 6
    Unlocks at Level 21.
    Any creature struck by a noxious blast must make a Fortitude save or suffer the effects of being dazed for 10 rounds.


    The in-game Eldritch Blast widgets cycle through Blast types in this order: Eldritch -> Hellrime -> Utterdark -> Brimstone -> Vitriolic -> Noxious -> Beshadowed -> Hindering.


Optional Feats
This feat is not automatically given.
  • Eldritch Mastery
    Increases the power of Eldritch Blast by 50%.

    Requirements:
    • Epic character
    • 16+ levels of Warlock
    • 25+ ranks of Spellcraft
    • A custom feat taken in epic (these feats are labeled as a unique feat (action)/(instant) at the bottom of your epic feat list)
    Ask a DM in-game for the feat if all these requirements are met.


Important Notes
  • You cannot be a Warlock/Bard multiclass, nor can you multiclass into something a Bard normally cannot (e.g. Monk).
  • Bard spells aren't restricted - use them all you like! These represent Warlock invocations.
  • Bard song is disabled upon taking the Warlock class, and any special bard songs similarly do not function.
  • Bear in mind that this isn't a class with as much polish or complexity as Knight Commander or Master Scout - it's something that used to be a DC request we decided to make public for everyone to enjoy.
  • We do intend to make this class its own in EE, selectable by anyone. If you wish to wait until then to play a Warlock, that's okay. But if you want to play one now, feel free to submit a request and you can get a rebuild for free when the new version of the class is incorporated.

Assassin

Post by Jes »

Assassin


Assassin Tools
This is a widget automatically gained upon taking Assassin level 2. It will impart your weapon (be it glove, bow or blade) with the ability to make a special strike once every turn. The DC calculation is 10 + Assassin level + Intelligence modifier. Note that the ability doesn't have to be reapplied each time; it persists for 1 Turn per Assassin level.
  • Braining Blow
    • (Stun) (2 Rounds, Will)
      Head injuries are especially traumatic, and the Assassin knows this. Heavy, blunt force dealt by a pommel or leaden arrow can temporarily stun a foe, leaving them vulnerable to a follow-up strike.
    Shrill Strike
    • (Deafness) (Turn/Assassin, Fortitude)
      The importance of the sense of hearing in combat is not lost on the Assassin. An attack upon the auditory organs leaves the ears of the Assassin's foe ringing painfully.
    Beshaba's Favor
    • (-d4 all stats) (supernatural permanent, doesn’t stack, Will)
      The Assassin becomes adept at turning disadvantage to advantage, weakness into strength, bad luck into blessed fortune. Provided, that this misfortune falls upon the Assassin's victim.
    Stalker's Throat-Dart
    • (Silence) (1 Round/Assassin, Fortitude)
      Landing a blow to the throat is one of the most difficult attacks an Assassin can make. By no chance, it is also one of the most rewarding.
    Induce Amaurosis
    • (Blindness) (1 Round/Assassin, Fortitude)
      The Assassin knows that something as innocuous as a culinary spice can have more malign uses. Pepper, thrown into the eyes of the foe in the heat of battle, leaves them a bit burned.
    Blade of Terror
    • (Paralysis) (1 Round/Assassin, Will)
      The appalling viciousness of the Assassin's assault cows the target into submission. The assassin may make a death-attack that causes overwhelming fear to the target of this ability.
    Bloodlet
    • (Level Drain) (supernatural permanent stacks, Fortitude)
      The Carotid and Femoral artery are prime targets for a cutting or piercing strike. An accurate slice can cause the most extreme case of profuse bleeding: untreated, such a strike is as good as a death-sentence.
    Kneecapper's Knife
    • (Knockdown) (Rounds/3 Assassin, Reflex)
      The legs are a promising, if difficult to hit, target. They are often more lightly armored than the torso, as even the most rigid plate armor has many joints and thin parts in its metal.
    Murder
    • (Death, Death Immunity ignored, Fortitude)
      The most valuable and feared tool at the Assassin's disposal is not their famed agility or skill with blade or bow, but their knowledge of anatomy and flagrant disregard for the niceties of honorable combat. This attack leaves nothing about the Assassin's motives to question.

Blackguard

Post by Jes »

Blackguard


This Blackguard feat has been modified from its default implementation.
  • Dark Blessing
    • The saving throw bonus is capped to Blackguard level (e.g. a level 3 Blackguard would only receive a maximum of +3 saves from Dark Blessing, no matter how high their Charisma modifier is).

This feat must be taken on a Blackguard level. It is not automatically given.
These feats are gained automatically upon leveling and are usable once per day.
  • Aura of Despair
    • Starting at 3rd level, the blackguard radiates a malign aura that causes enemies within 10 feet to take a -2 penalty on all saving throws. This is a permanent effect that cannot be dispelled and does not have any accompanying VFX.
    Eagle's Splendor
    • Starting at 4rd level, a Blackguard gains the ability to cast Eagle's Splendor.
    Magic Circle against Good
    • Starting at 7th level, a Blackguard gains the ability to cast Magic Circle against Good.
    Divine Favor
    • Starting at 10th level, a Blackguard gains the ability to cast Divine Favor.

Spellbook
On Amia, Blackguards have a spellbook. They can select the following spells.
  • Level 1
    Bane, Bless, Corrupt weapon, Demon Flesh, Divine Favor, Doom, Endure elements, Inflict light wounds, Magic weapon, Protection from alignment
    Level 2
    Aid, Aura of Glory, Bull's Strength, Cat's Grace, Darkness, Eagle's splendor, Resist elements, Ultravision
    Level 3
    Abyssal Might, Contagion, Dispel Magic, Greater magic weapon, Inflict moderate wounds, Magic circle against alignment, Prayer, Veil of Shadow
    Level 4
    Death ward, Deeper Darkness, Freedom, Inflict serious wounds, Poison, Unholy Sword


Spell Descriptions
These are the descriptions for the unique Blackguard spells listed above.

    The caster corrupts a melee weapon to strike true against good opponents, granting a +1 enhancement bonus and 2d6 negative energy damage vs. good for Turns/Level.
  • Demon Flesh
    The caster grows the thick, leather flesh of a demon, granting a +1 natural armor bonus to Armor Class for every three caster levels (at least +1, maximum +5) for Hours/Level.
  • Veil of Shadow
    Swirling wisps of darkness obscure the caster's form, granting a concealment bonus for Turns/Level.

      BG level 9 - 40% Conceal

Divine Champion

Post by Jes »

Divine Champion


Champions of Torm are no longer considered only followers of Torm on Amia. Instead the class has been changed to be the more general Divine Champion. They have a free range of deity choices, can be any valid worshiper alignment of their deity, and to meet the prerequisites, any Weapon Focus feat may be taken; they are not restricted to melee weapons.

In addition, Divine Champions do not gain Smite Evil at level 3. In its place, they gain the Purge Infidel feat. Divine Champion levels count toward the damage of Paladin Smite Evil, even if they do not gain the feat.


Purge Infidel
  • Gained at 3rd level, the Divine Champion gains bonus damage equal to their class level for the duration of their Charisma modifier as rounds. The bonus damage only works against creatures of an alignment that is different than the Divine Champion. Usable once per day.

Dragon Disciple

Post by Jes »

Dragon Disciple


The Red Dragon Disciple is not limited to only red dragon types on Amia. The following dragon types may be chosen freely (alignment - element type):
  • Gold (LG - Fire)
  • Silver (LG - Cold)
  • Bronze (LG - Electricity)
  • Brass (CG - Fire)
  • Copper (CG - Acid)
  • Red (CE - Fire)
  • Blue (LE - Electricity)
  • Green (LE - Acid)
  • Black (CE - Acid)
  • White (CE - Cold)
  • Shadow (CE - Negative)

This choice affects the disciple's wing color, immunity, and breath weapon type. In order to choose a dragon type, a DM must be asked to grant the benefit in-game. Note that a DM does not have to grant this perk, especially if a PC wildly differs from the established canon details of that dragon type or is not within one-step of their dragon type's alignment. After 10 levels, alignment restrictions grow more strict.

IMPORTANT: See this post for Amia's rulings and server lore for the Dragon Disciple class. It's important to follow these RP guidelines, due to the nature of the class.



These feats are modified from the default Red Dragon Disciple.
  • Draconic Armor
    • The Armor Class gained by this feat has been trimmed. See the progression chart below.
    Draconic Abilities
    • Abilities gained by this feat have been both trimmed and expanded. See the progression chart below.
    Draconic Breath
    • This ability allows the Dragon Didciple to breathe a cone of energy, 20-feet long, dealing 1d10 damage per Dragon Disciple level. It has a Reflex Save [DC 10 + DD Level + Constitution modifier] for half damage. This may be used an unlimited amount of times per day, but has a cool-down between each use:
      • Level 3: Cooldown is 8d6 rounds (48-288 seconds)
        Level 10: Cooldown is 6d6 rounds (36-216 seconds)
        Level 15: Cooldown is 4d6 rounds (24-144 seconds)
    Immunity to Fire
    • Full Immunity to the dragon type's element is not granted at level 10 anymore, but 50% immunity instead. Further levels can improve this. See the progression chart below.

    • Bard or Sorcerer

      Not of the Outsider or Fey subraces

Knight Commander

Post by Jes »

Knight Commander


The Purple Dragon Knight has been replaced by the Knight Commander, a party support specialist whose abilities focus on increasing ally strength and weakening enemies via auras. As with Purple Dragon Knight, the maximum level for this class is 5.



"Whether it is leading the charge on a group of regal knights or cutting down fleeing victims, the Knight Commander stands forefront with a mastery over leadership, co-ordination and discipline. The Knight Commander is a shining example of why a handful of well-organised soldiers can best an army of rabble, gaining abilities to bolster his troops and control the battlefield with expert prowess. While such commanders come from many walks of life, all possess natural talent at direction and tactical supremacy."


  • Knight Commander

    Hit Die: d10
    Proficiencies: All types of armor, shields, simple and martial weapons
    Skill Points: 2 + INT Modifier
    Base Attack Progression: +1
    Primary Saving Throws: Fortitude, Will
    Class Skills: Concentration, Craft Armor, Craft Weapon, Craft Trap, Discipline, Heal, Listen, Lore, Parry, Persuade, Ride and Taunt

    Requirements
    BAB: +5
    Feats: Skill Focus: Discipline, Toughness
    Skills: Persuade 4 ranks, Taunt 4 ranks, Discipline 8 ranks and Lore 4 ranks

    Abilities
    The Knight Commander has access to a number of auras which apply a myriad of effects.

    Level 1:
    • Barricade of Swords: Defensive Aura: Barricade of Swords creates a damage shield around all allies within the aura and allows them to shrug off a minor amount of physical damage. The shields damage is 1d10 slashing damage, +2 per Knight Commander level, +1 per Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level. They also gain 5% damage immunity to bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage, +1% per Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level.

      Entreatment: Ability which can be used once per Knight Commander level. If they fail a Will save versus the Knight Commander's Taunt, the enemies change targets to instead attack the Knight Commander. Where used against other player characters, this feat simply causes the target to break their action queue and become flat-footed. Enemies failing their Will save are also inflicted with a -2 Attack Bonus penalty for five rounds.

      Stand Down: This is an unlimited feat which allows the Knight Commander to dismiss all of their auras instantly.

    Level 2:
    • Bulwark of Vigilance: Offensive Aura: Upon entering this aura, enemies lose 8% movement speed per Knight Commander level, and receive a -5 Tumble penalty multiplied by their Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level. The Tumble decrease does not lower AC.
    Level 3:
    • Medicant: Defensive Aura: All allies within this aura gain +2 regeneration, which improves to +3 at 5th Knight Commander level. Allies also gain +5 Heal skill per Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level.
    Level 4:
    • Ordnance Support: Offensive Aura: All enemies within this aura suffer a 3% immunity decrease to acid/cold/fire/sonic/electricity per Knight Commander level. Additionally all enemies gain -2 penalty to their spell resistance per Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level.
    Level 5:
    • Vehement Charge: Defensive Aura: All allies within this aura gain immunity to blindness, charm, confusion, deafness, fear, daze, sleep, slow and stun. Allies also gain 3% movement speed increase per Charisma modifier, to a maximum of Knight Commander level. This aura also inflicts a penalty of -10 discipline to all allies.

      Shield Ally: Knight Commander can shield one ally within 20 foot, giving him +4 dodge AC, while doing so the Knight Commander receives -4 to his attack. This ability may be used unlimited times per day; the Knight Commander cannot use it on himself.

    NOTE: You can only have one defensive and one offensive aura active at the same time. All defensive auras have a radius of 30 foot, while offensive auras have a radius of 10 foot. All auras are infinite use with an unlimited duration.

Shadowdancer

Post by Jes »

Shadowdancer


These Shadowdancer feats have been modified from their default implementations:
  • Hide in Plain Sight
    • There is a cool-down on Hide in Plain Sight. When stealth mode is deactivated, Hide in Plain Sight will not function for another six seconds. Do note that only Hide in Plain Sight is affected - a character may still enter Stealth Mode during this cool-down time.

      This feat is gained at level 6, rather than level 1.
    Shadow Daze
    • Instead of being 1 use per day, Shadow Daze has been changed to a cool-down dependent on Shadowdancer level.

      The base cool-down is 5 turns (or 300 seconds). For every Shadowdancer level past 5, the cool-down is decreased by 3 rounds (or 18 seconds). For example, a level 10 Shadowdancer has a cool-down of 210 seconds. A level 20 Shadowdancer has a cool-down of 30 seconds.
    Summon Shadow
    • The Shadowdancer's summon has been redesigned. See here for the relevant details.
    Shadow Evade
    • This feat's duration has been changed to 1 round per Shadowdancer level, rather than a flat 5 rounds.


New Abilities
  • Shadow Jump
    • This is a supernatural ability that Shadowdancers are free to request if they fulfill the conditions:

      Lesser Shadow Jump
      • This will enable you to teleport from shadow to shadow four times per day. You must have at least 4 Shadowdancer levels and received tutoring from a fellow Shadowdancer of level 10 or above. You may request the feat to use this ability in the Request forum (or via PM to the DMs) after sufficient training with your tutor has been done.
      Greater Shadow Jump
      • This will enable you to teleport from shadow to shadow, ten times per day. You must have at least 10 SD levels and the feat to use this ability may be requested from the DMs, at their discretion.

    The Umbran Arts
    Starting at level 10 Shadowdancer, Umbran Arts become available to them. These advanced Shadowdancing technique uses highly technical aspects of the class. As such, these techniques can only be learned with respective tutoring. These techniques have been hand-crafted by powerful Shadowdancers and tend not to be given out lightly and are even more rigourous to learn than Shadowjump and some may require certain feats to obtain.


    These Umbran Arts have 3 tiers. Each tier denotes the amount of uses of Shadow Evade required to cast. For example, you could use a tier I Umbran Arts 3 times a rest, or a tier I and II once a rest, or a tier III once a rest. A couple of items are referred to as tier I but do not require castings of Shadow Evade to use.
    • Umbran Arts: Night Eyes
      (Tier I) - (10 DCs) - Doesn't require Shadow Evade
      Through attuning to the shadows, the user gains complete immunity to the spell Darkness.

      Umbran Arts: Shadow Affinity
      (Tier I) - (10 DCs) - Doesn't require Shadow Evade
      Due to the Shadowdancer's affinity with the shadows, this item can apply the following cosmetic effects: Shadow Shield, Black Tentacles, Anti-Light and Purple Eyes.

      Umbran Arts: Tenebrous Tempo
      (Tier I) - (5 DCs)
      Increases the user's movement speed by 50% for turns/Shadowdancer level, using shadows to travel quickly.

      Umbran Arts: Vestige Unraveling
      (Tier I) - (5 DCs)
      A Shadowdancer can manipulate shadows to unlock all mundane locks of a 5m radius around the target. This will fail on certain doors that use permalock mechanics, however with DM supervision this can be used to unlocked doors requiring certain keys.

      Umbran Arts: Essence of Ethereality
      (Tier II) - (5 DCs)
      A powerful Umbran Arts that draws shadows on to the caster. Enemies must make a will save vs. the illusion, upon failing the Shadowdancer is rendered undetectable to them. This lasts turns/Shadowdancer level.

      Umbran Arts: Negative Energy Pulsar
      (Tier II) - (5 DCs) - Requires Epic Shadelord feat
      While the Shadowdancer's Shade is summoned, the Shadowdancer can draw in immense shadowstuff on to themselves and project it on to their Shade. This gives the Shade an aura of negative energy, upon entering the aura, enemies who make a DC 10 + Shadowdancer Level save against Fortitude to be dealt with half damage. If they fail, they are dealt 1d4 +x (x = Shadowdancer level) of negative damage per round.

      Umbran Arts: Vestment of the Shadow Manticore
      (Tier III) - (5 DCs)
      The user draws in Shadows to create a powerful magical vestment around their person, gaining Damage Reduction (20/+5 absorbing 150 Melee Damage before collapsing) and Immunity to Death Magic for Turns/Shadowdancer level.

      Umbran Arts: Shade Merge
      (Tier III) - (5 DCs) - Requires Epic Shadelord feat
      Upon casting, the Shadowdancer and Shade merge in to one form, weaving the physical and negative together. While in this state of being, the caster receives a 50% concealment bonus and immunity to both negative energy and death magic.

Shifter

Post by Jes »

Shifter


The Amian Shifter is completely overhauled from the base Shifter class. Every form in the entire game has been changed and modified to bring it more in line with the rest of the classes in the game. The changes are extensive and exhaustive. All pre-epic forms now have an epic variety obtained as you level higher into the Shifter class into epic. Gloves/Bracers also now merge into appropriate forms, unlike in default Neverwinter Nights.

  • AC Progression
    Shifters gain a unique bonus AC progression which applies when shapeshifted. Note that certain forms may have additional AC on top of what Shifter levels provide.

    Code: Select all

        Shifter Level -> 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
        -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Armor      |     0  0  0  1  1  1  1  2  2  2  2  3  3  3  3  4  4  4  4  5
        Deflection |     0  1  1  1  1  2  2  2  2  3  3  3  3  4  4  4  4  5  5  5 
        Dodge      |     0  0  1  1  1  1  2  2  2  2  3  3  3  3  4  4  4  4  5  5
        Natural    |     1  1  1  1  2  2  2  2  3  3  3  3  4  4  4  4  5  5  5  5
        Shield     |     3  3  4  4  4  5  5  5  6  6  6  7  7  7  8  8  8  8  8  8
    At level 20 Shifter, a total bonus of +28 AC is gained when shifted.


    Ability Overwriting
    If a Shifter shifts into a form with a physical ability higher than their own (for instance, a Shifter with 12 Strength shifts into Drow with 20 Strength), then the higher value will overwrite. This works in reverse, too: if a Shifter with 24 Strength shifts into Drow with 20 Strength, then their Strength would remain at 24 as it is the superior amount.


    DC Calculations and Spells
    DCs on Shifter abilities are calculated from a unique formula: 10 + 1/2 of Shifter Level + Wisdom Modifier. In cases where an ability has a duration, it is calculated as Druid + Shifter level. For abilities which have a scaling damage amount, the amount is again calculated as Druid + Shifter level.

    Note that metamagic feats do not work on Shifter spells, and Expertise/Improved Expertise cannot be used on Shifter abilities or spells.


    Epic Form Progression
    There is an epic version of every non-feat obtained form. Epic forms will usually have increased damage over non-epic forms, or have access to a further range of abilities.

    They are obtained with the following amount of Shifter levels:
    • Shifter Level 11: Epic Greater Wildshape I
      Shifter Level 13: Epic Greater Wildshape II
      Shifter Level 15: Epic Greater Wildshape III
      Shifter Level 17: Epic Humanoid Shape
      Shifter Level 19: Epic Greater Wildshape IV

    Shifter Shape Details
    Due to the sheer amount of information, the details are contained in a xls file (openable by Excel or any similar program which deals with spreadsheets). It's a valuable source of information for Shifter players, so you should really download it and look it over. Seriously.
