3rd. Wallurgist (I have wanted to play a caster who specialized in walls forever, this is pretty close)

3nd. Porter (It's like a Bag of Holding combined with a Familiar, I can also see a great two man team of an Artificer and a Porter.)

1st. Redshirt (HE'S IMMORTAL, Effectively, while not being overpowered, plus who doesn't love Ensign Ricky, Pair this with a caster, ricky runs in amongst the big bads and begins reading off his scrolls of, oh well you know by now:

Third place: Farmer

First: Redshirt
My own, so I had to do it, but really, what can be better for "Better than it sounds" than someone who is doomed to die horribly every 30 seconds?

Second: Perfumer
Sounds so bad, smells so good.

Third: Farmer
A darn good class, and it definitely doesn't sound like it. Probably the best thought out of all of them, I just think that being a Perfumer or a Redshirt sounds less survivable than a durable sodbuster.

2) Porter
3) Redshirt (with this and porter, it may finally be possible to make Nodwick a 3.5 character sheet :smallbiggrin:)

1. Redshirt. It does exactly what is sounds like it does, and still manages to be awesome.
2. Farmer. Sounds like commoner, the weakest class in the game. But acts as a good melee brute and still has out of combat abilities.
3. Wallurgist. Sounds interesting, but weak. Then manages to fight effectively using walls.

2012-01-03, 05:33 AM
1. Farmer Cus it sounds so weak, but is so awesome. A lot of the other stuff just sounded too cool.
2. Porter
3. Perfumer

1. Perfumer - for obvious reasons. If you go to work the next day in bandages, you'd never EVER admit your ass got whipped by a perfumer.
2. Redshirt - looks like a very fun class to play. Wins over the farmer for me with the basis that it just is better than it sounds.
3. Farmer - very solid class, nothing bad to say really. But for a guy who grew up with farmers, I know firsthand not to mess with them in any way.

Sigh...still sad I missed out on this. But I suppose voting is the next best thing, eh?

1. Wallurgist
2. Redshirt
3. Otaku

My vote goes to GuyFawked Perfumer (Parfums) is so nice and a lot of real parfume in there, great concept, good fluff and nice mechanics.

First place: Perfumer (Parfums)
Second place: Wallurgist
Third place: The Porter

1. Cat Girl Space Pirate--I know it hasn't got a chance of winning at this point but come on, what could sound crazier for a D&D game than an anime-based, alien science fiction gun-totin' babe?

2. Wallurgist--Playability. Fluff it as an exotic form of mage and I could easily see this actually being played in a D&D game. Interesting notions to consider are one thing but actual in-game playability is a massive selling point to me.

3. Redshirt--Hey--it's a Star Trek class in a D&D game. How could I not give it some love?

Thought process:
Wallurgist is fun, but there's a couple of formatting errors, and it's not that complete.
Farmer is mechanically fine, but it's not something I'd enjoy playing.
Red Shirt is <3
CatGirlSpacePirate is kinda too silly, tbh.
Elemental Bacon. How I wish this was done.
Lord. Sorry hon, but it's just... kinda dull I guess.
Otaku! Amusing concept, I'd play it. Fujoshi shouldn't be female only. Or the other version should be male only I guess, but the asymmetricality bugs me. Not sure how well it would scale. The class skills feels slightly lazy, and the formatting isn't quite right. Also Signature Move needs a limit on how often. Or needs to be told it's unlimited. I really WANT to vote for this one, but...
Perfumer is pretty awesome. I'm worried the DCs might be pretty low, but I'd play it.
Porter is... an interesting concept I guess. More could have been done with it.

1-Red Shirt
