left it with sneak attack, and gave it the same (almost) special ability slot progression. with the same or maybe slightly changed power list as the psyRogue, make the manifesting based off wisdom too. whadythink?

thing is, im not trying to create a whole new class, merely cut and paste one class into an existing class. also, left the abilities where they're granted on the ninja class in CA. the one thing i will change is making ki powers cost pp

no new abilities, everything is as it is written in Complete Adventurer: Ninja. the power list is from the Psychic rogue's list (psyRogue here): http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/psm/20040723b (i was going to cut and paste it, but i dont want to get flagged again :(

I'd say merge ki pool and power points.

yeah, i agree :)

yeah, i agree :)

How much pp, then?

2010-12-12, 11:39 PM
havent thought about it much, but probably eqivalent to the power cost for the level they gain the ki ability?

well, something like ghost step should be 1 point. i think the ninja ki abilities should cost what they do normally (in ki) pp-wise. i say this because the ninja is completely at ease with them, they come naturally to him
