View Full Version : homebrew-only core classes

2013-12-14, 12:44 AM
So i was wondering, using the same eleven class, seven race format as the core rulebook, if you guys were to start a campaign only using homebrew content from this forums, what would you use? Tiers don't really matter for the purposes of this question, i just want to know your opinions.

Good Question.

I'd use my Wild Shaper (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=279135) and Selinia's Stargazer (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=258654)

Barbarian - Brawler (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=204494)
Bard - Warrior-poet (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235823)
Cleric - Baneseeker (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=16241318)
Druid - Deviant (http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Deviant_(3.5e_Class))
Fighter - Honour Guard (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=289919)
Monk - Gentle Fist Adept (http://www.minmaxboards.com/index.php?topic=30)

Wizard - Scholar (http://www.minmaxboards.com/index.php?topic=279.msg1328#msg1328)

Not all of these do exactly the same as the class they were based on, but a lot of them do very similar things at least. They may not be the best (I'd aim to make everything T3 rather than keep the original tiers) but they were what I could find quickly.

Thanks for the suggestions! Personally i would use jiriku's avatar for the cleric, pairodice lost's gambler for the rogue, and the treuthsynger from the homebrew contests for the bard. sorry, i don't know how to hyperlink yet :P

As their replacements or the rough equivalent of existing official classes?

Dark Knight is kind of a replacement for the Blackguard.
Teleporter for the Wizard.
Xenoalchemist for the Cleric.
Chozo Warrior for the Ranger.
Debaser for the Hexblade.
Engineer for the Artificer.
Improviser for the Rogue.
Limit Dragoon for the Paladin (sort of).
Sentai for the Warblade.
Gaoler of Frostflame for the Sorcerer.
Machiavellian for the Bard (in social aspects).

I don't have clear-cut equivalents for the Druid, Monk or Barbarian, but that's not necessary. All are Tier 3-4 classes found in the Homebrew Tier Compendium (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=245701).

For races, I got angels (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=252925), humans, dwarves and jotun (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=253022). The world also has elves, orcs and a race called komola, but their stats haven't been entirely worked out yet beyond ability score penalties/bonuses.

What kind of a setting would that mix of classes result in?

EDIT - Ah, I followed some links and got my answer. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=13636167)

I'd happily let my players use them in higher power games if the classes were finished. :smallwink:

One of them actually has been eyeing the Teramach pretty strongly, and another seemed interested in the Kathodos, no doubt due to being an Avatar fan.

I'd go with Cat Burglar instead of Rogue.

But I am notoriously biased. :smallbiggrin:
