  1. Hey there - many thanks for the Mod Order, I've been looking for one for ages! Any problems you've encountered with this one? Does the Scales of Balance component Stat Bonus Overhaul work correctly? Have you tried this one too? https://github.com/GwendolyneFreddy/1pp If not, where would you put it? Is the Cernd mod Cernd Friendship? @subtledoctor Wondering what you think about the improved Beast Lord
  2. Updated Beast Lord proposal: 1. Beast Lord Abilities: - Focus access to the sphere of: Animal. - Major access to the spheres of: All, Exploration, Thought, Vigor, Affliction. - Minor access to the spheres of: Life, Death, Dread, Water and Shadow. - May summon his pack to aid him in battle: 1st level - 1 wolf, 3rd level - 2 wolves, 6th level - 2 worgs, 8th level - 2-3 dire wolves, 12th level - 1 wolfwere, 18th level - 2 wolfweres. - At 6th level the Beast Lord may shapeshift into a hybrid Werewolf twice per day. The Beast Lord gains an additional use every two levels, to a maximum of eight uses per day at level 20. The concentrated effort required to maintain the form makes the Beast Lord unable to cast any spells while under its effect. - The Werewolf form increases in power to that of a Greater Werewolf at 12th level and a Werewolf Lord at 18th. – Can cast Rabies special ability once per day at 9th level. Beast Lord gains additional uses at levels 14 and 18. RABIES: With his touch, the Beast Lord spreads the effects of his lycantrophic condition to a single, living creature. Every two rounds the disease causes a permanent -2 penalty to all stats (up to 6 to all stats) and causes slow. If the target fails a saving throw against Poison at -2, it loses an ability to cast spells and will immediately attack the closest target, friend and foe alike. Restrictions: - The Beast Lord cannot contain his bestial nature completely and is prone to losing control while shapeshifted into a werewolf. At 6th level there is a 25% chance he will lose himself to bloodlust and become uncontrollable, this improves to a 10% chance at 12th level and finally 5% at 18th. - May not wear any armour.
  3. And here's the Haer'dalis kit idea (F/M/T), a mix between an Agent and a Hexblade with some twists. He'd still be a Bard, but with more flavour, fitting his Doomguard background: Doomguard Agent: Members of the Doomguard, often nicknamed "Sinkers", believe that the Multiverse is slowly falling apart, and they delight in its inevitable destruction. Doomguard Agents often take upon the role of actors, musicians, court members or traveling bards in order to gain access to broad and influential audiences. In their travels throughtout all the corners of the Multiverse, they have acquired voluminous knowledge of culture, history and art, which they use to entice any who would listen to give in to the Entropy. As they operate indpendently and often in alien, hostile worlds, they have, in addition to magical powers, acquired the skills of a thief; in emergencies, they can also brawl their way out of trouble. Abilities: – Lore increased by 5 points per level. – May use Emanation: Malison, an aura which causes all enemies in an area of effect to suffer a -1 penalty to Luck and saving throws. – From 6th level, may use Hex Aura, which causes all enemies within 3 feet suffer a 1-point penalty to Luck and saving throws. In addition, each time the bard strikes an enemy (up to once per round), the enemy must save vs. spells or this penalty is increased by one more point, for three rounds. (This aura disables the bard's spellcasting.) – Automatically gains knowledge of the following spells: Disintegrate, Finger of Death, Death Fog, Greater Malison, Emotion: Hopelessness and Ray of Enfeeblement. – While bards memorize spells like a wizard, they can cast them spontaneously, like a sorcerer. – Once per day per 6 levels of experience, may use the Touch of Entropy ability. TOUCH OF ENTROPY: The Doomguard Agent's hand briefly becomes a conduit of the Negative Energy Plane. When the Agent makes a successful melee attack against a creature, that creature receives a +3 penalty to all their rolls, including THAC0 and Saving Throws and must make a Saving Throw vs. Death or be be transformed into dust. There is also a good chance that this will destroy some if not all of the items that the creature is carrying. Restrictions: – May cast spells one level later than a wizard. – May not learn spells from the Abjuration, Conjuration, or Necromancy schools of magic. – May not learn 8th- or 9th-level spells. – Backstab damage limited to a 2x multiplier. – Permanent -4 penalty to saves vs. Death. – May not learn any other Bard Song effects. ---- Comments: - I think that the Death save penalty fits very well with the theme of the kit. - The schools of magic the Agents are barred from were chosen with the theme in mind as well - Abjuration (protection), Conjuration (creation) and Necromancy (disturbs the entropy). - I'm not sure if it's possible to bar the kit from using a spell school altogether, but still give them access to some spells from it (as proposed). - Since most Bard Songs are focused on improving the party, they don't fit very well (Death Ward, Courage, Luck etc.) hence the restriction. This also serves to better balance the inclusion of Touch of Entropy. - Touch of Entropy and Emanation: Malison/Hex Aura should ideally stack their effects.
  4. A small thing I've noticed - once Bladesinger's Bladesong is enabled, the ability that shuts it down is called "Quick Weapon" and has a harp icon. Is that intentional?
  5. That's unfortunate. But maybe Haer'dalis should get his own kit instead, for even more flavour? Doomguard seems like a good choice, since he is one. There's some information on them here: http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20040706a&page=3 On the other hand that triple class mix would be pretty handy to have as well and fit the abovementioned Doomguard well.
  6. Would it be possible to give Haer'dalis option to change into Fighter/Mage/Thief? The Agent multiclass seems like the perfect choice for him: AGENT (triple-class F/M/T): agents are masters of espionage, using their prodigious skills to further the interests of some patron, or sometimes, themselves. They often pose as entertainers or some other seemingly-innocuous profession, in order to infiltrate societies and organizations. They have a voluminous knowledge of culture, history and art, in order to play their role well, in addition to magical powers, the skills of a thief, and in emergencies, the ability to brawl their way out of trouble. While it takes very long to master such a diverse set of capabilities, the reward for such patience and training is flexibility that is simply unmatched.
  7. True enough, it'd be easier to just make two versions of the spell, one for party members, other for hostiles, though it's not as elegant. And you'd have way more uses then. Yeah, I think that'd fit the class lore very well - and, well, Werewolf Lord has to have someone to lord over, right? You're right, I forgot that this class is open to gnomes only My offer to help out with the Champion of Sune/Beast Lord still stands though!
  8. Are those proposed dual abilities possible, by the way? Some effects seem to work that way (Holy Smite), but it seems to be alignment-related. If you're interested, I could try helping you out with the kits, I'll have some free time starting next week On that note - what if all the BG2 companions got their unique classes? Some of them are already done - like Watcher of Helm for Anomen, Beast Lord for Cernd, Haer'dalis could be an Agent etc. For example, Aerie could receive her mage/priest multiclass called Wildwanderer (after her chosen Deity, Baervan Wildwanderer), focused on nature and illusion spells. How about giving them ability to summon: - At 1st level - two regular wolves. - At 4th level - a large pack of regular wolves. - At 6th level - a pack of dread wolves. - At 12th level - a pack of vampiric wolves. - At 18th level - a few hybrid werewolves. Or something to that effect. Yeah, exactly. It will not be terribly annoying to deal with that, but will add some spice to the fights. What do you think about making the chance to lose control decrease as they level up? Another idea is to have a HLA that will increase the daily uses of the werewolf form, at the cost of bigger chance to lose control etc.
  9. I'd like to offer a few suggestions: 1. Beast Lord Abilities: - May cast "Beast Claw" as an innate ability, at will. - 20% of all Beast Claw attacks cause infection upon a failed save vs. Death, weakening the target and causing 10% chance of spell failure. - At 6th level the Beast Lord's control over his lycantrophic condition improves and now, in place of Beast Claw, they may shapeshift into a hybrid Werewolf once per day. The Beast Lord gains an additional use every two levels, to a maximum of seven uses per day at level 20. The concentrated effort required to maintain the form makes the Beast Lord unable to cast any spells while under its effect. - The Werewolf form increases in power to that of a Greater Werewolf at 12th level and a Werewolf Lord at 18th. Restrictions: - The Beast Lord cannot contain his bestial nature completely and is prone to losing control. At 6th level there is a 50% chance he will lose himself to bloodlust and become uncontrollable, this improves to a 25% chance at 12th level and finally 5% at 18th. ___________ Comments: - These changes would potentially promote stance shifting between a powerful melee form and a weak spellcaster, which could create interesting tactical options. - The added Berserk-like malus would, on the other hand, offset the powerful effects the Werewolf form provides. It could be similar in effect to Minsc's Berserk. As an added bonus it fits the class lore very well. - Perhaps they should be allowed to wear armour up to the Studded Leather, if only to add some spice to itemization? 2. Champion of Sune Knights of the Order of the Ruby Rose: Paladins of Lady Firehair are seekers of beauty and ardent followers of the romantic ideals. This, however, should not be mistaken for weakness, as few can match their burning passion and tenacity in the defence of the things they cherish. Abilities: - Major access to the spheres of: All, Protection, Knowledge, Exploration, Light, Benediction and Thought. - Minor access to the spheres of: Vigor, Fire, Life, Deception, Magic and War. - Endless Devotion: Knights of the Order of the Ruby Rose are completely devoted to their Goddess and as such they are immune to any Charm effects. - Can cast Sune's Kiss as a special ability once per day. The Knight of the Order of the Ruby Rose gains an additional use at levels 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20. SUNE'S KISS: When used on hostile creatures outside of good moral alignment, they must make a Saving Throw against vs. Spell or be held for 1 turn or become blinded if they make the throw. If used on party members, this spell will instead instead remove fear effects, make the target immune to them for 1 turn as well as heals them for a small amount. - Can cast Radiant Beauty as a special ability once per day, starting from 6th level. The Knight of the Order of the Ruby Rose gains an additional use at levels 10, 14, 16 and 20. RADIANT BEAUTY: Once the spell is cast, the The Knight of the Order of the Ruby Rose becomes a living conduit of Sune's beauty. Hostile targets must make a Saving Throw against vs. Spell with a +3 bonus or fell under the effect similar to Domination, albeit with half its duration. With a successful roll the recipients will instead lie down in awe for 1 round. All fellow party members gain +2 morale, +1 to hit, +5 temporary hit points and 2 to all saving throws for 6 rounds. Restrictions: - Any Good. - Knight of the Order of the Ruby Rose must maintain reputation of 8 or fall. ___________ Comments: - A kit pretty much made for Isra NPC, as the Zealot of Sune didn't seem to fit well - Not sure the abilities can be constructed in the proposed way (affecting both allies and hostiles). But I think that those dual effects work well with lore of the class - inspiration to the group and a terrible sight to everyone else. - Both abilities could probably be improved, but I ran out of ideas
