View Full Version : Pathfinder Weapon Hoarder (Homebrew Base Class)

2016-09-02, 06:22 PM
So, a friend of mine likes to try to homebrew things for Pathfinder, like this base class based on the likes of Gilgamesh in the Final Fantasy series or Erza in Fairy Tail. He was having trouble with his account, so he gave me permission to post it here for critique. Is it overpowered? Underpowered? Smells like monkey scorpions?

Spoilered for length:

exotic proficiency
the weapon hoarder starts play with one exotic weapon proficiency of her choosing

magical armoury
you gain an interdimentional vault to hold your weapons, the maximum number of weapons it can hold is equal to your charisma modifier plus twice your level. adding a new weapon to your vault or replacing a weapon in your vault with a different weapon takes 30 minutes to attune, at any time you may call a single weapon into your hand(or prehensile apendage) as a swift action, after doing so you are considered to have the weapon drawn and may wield it normally. alternatively, you may call multiple weapons and have them float in the air around you until they attack or come to you, calling weapons into the air is a move action and may call up to your charisma modifier plus 1 per 4 levels number of weapons at a time this way, alternatively the weapon hoarder may summon double her charisma modifier plus 1 per 4 levels number of weapons at a time as a double move action, or as a full round action the weapon hoarder may summon thrice her charimsa modifier plus 1 per 4 per levels weapons, weapons called into the air this way often appear above your head, however they can be called to any point in a 10ft radius, once you have called weapons into the air, you may have up to 3 of them attack a single target as a full round action, doing so is a ranged attack(40ft increment) that deals normal weapon damage plus your charisma modifier in damage, these attacks use the weapon hoarder's full bab, these weapons retain any special properties they may have, any lack in proficiency or improper size penalties apply as normal, each weapon's attack and damage is rolled seperately, every 2 levels beyond first, the weapon hoarder may use one additional floating weapon in this full attack action, alternatively, the weapon hoarder may have a single floating weapon attack a single target as a standard action, every 4 levels this standard action can attack with 1 additional floating weapon(up to 6 at lv 20). at lv 8 onward, the full attack action may have more floating weapons attack than her usual limit, however each additional attack beyond this limit takes a cumulative -4 penalty(ex:if your limit is 6 and you have 8 weapons attack, the 7th is at -4 and the 8th is at -8). any number of your weapons may be recalled to your armoury with a swift action. weapons floating in the air are considered unattended for the purpose of sunder attempts, weapons floating in the air do not impede movement. adding a new weapon to your armoury takes 2 full round actions

reliquery adornments(name pending)
at second level and every 2 levels thereafter the weapon hoarder selects a reliquery adornment off following the list

accelerated weapon calling
you can call 1 more weapon from your armoury at once as a move action, 2 more as a double move, or 3 more as a full round action, may never call more weapons than are in your armoury, may be taken multiple times, effects stack

alacritous strike
as a swift action the weapon hoarder may have a single floating weapon that has the piercing quality launch at tremendous velocity, this has the weapon attack all targets in a 60 ft line, the attack is treated as having both the piercing and ballistic properties for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. alacritous strike may be taken multiple times, once per 4 levels, each additional time it is taken either an additional floating weapon may be simultaneously fired in a 60 ft line, or the line is increased by 30 ft(chosen upon taking the adornment), additional weapons may be fired down the same line or in different lines

bladed bulwark
the weapon hoarder may spend an immediate action to condense a number of her floating weapons to block incoming attacks, this provides a deflection bonus against attacks equal to the number of floating weapons used, the bonus lasts till the start of her next turn and then the weapons spread back out, the weapon hoarder may use a maximum number of floating weapons equal to her charisma modifier. despite the name, weapons need not be slashing to be used in bladed bulwark

calamitous torrent
the weapon hoarder has some of her floating weapons violently spin around her, this results in each of the chosen weapons to attack all squares adjacent to her as a full round action, the weapons used immediately return to the armoury afterward. the weapon hoarder may use up to her charisma modifier in floating weapons for calamitous torrent. calamitous torrent may be taken multiple times, each additional time increases the number of floating weapons that may be used by 1, or increase the radius which calamitous torrent attacks by 5ft(chosen when taken)

deep weapon understanding
magic weapons can offer many bonuses, but few know all the nuanced intricies of how they work or how to best use them, you have a deeper grasp of such things and can wield them more effectively, normally an enhancement bonus provides benefit to attack and damage, when you take deep weapon understanding, you choose ether attack or damage, whichever you choose, you gain double the actual enhancement bonus instead of the enhancement bonus when wielding magic weapons(ex if you choose attack a +1 enhancement bonus will provide +2 attack and +1 damage instead of +1 to both). deep weapon understanding may be taken 4 times, the second time you choose between attack and damage again, if you choose the same one your floating weapons also gain the benefit, taking it 4 times lets both attack and damage be effected for you and your floating weapons

lord impaler
when you would summon weapons as a fullround action, you may summon them right below an enemy on the ground, this requires a reflex save by the enemy DC 10 + half your level + your charisma mod or they are hit by each weapon you summon beneath them, inflicting bleed damage instead of the usual damage type if the target isnt immune to bleed. weapons that strike a target in this way immediately return to the armoury
