Hey everyone! So, I haven't posted here in ages, since I took a bit of a hiatus from tabletop RPGs, but I'm back at it again now and I've been brewing up a rather ambitious project. As a challenge, I thought I would try to make playable base class versions of all the Pathfinder NPC Classes (Adept, Aristocrat, Commoner, Expert & Warrior). They're intended to have a bit of a low-fantasy feel, but should hopefully still be competitive (around Tier 3 or so). This is the first entry in the series, the Heroic Adept. Trying to give adepts a unique flavor to set them apart from wizards, clerics, witches and shamans, etc., was rather tricky, but I think I found something that, while sharing elements of all the above classes, still has its own spin. Anyway, here are some links:

Any thoughts and comment welcome! If people like this stuff at all, I'll continue and post the other four Homegrown Heroes classes too. :)

Going to give this a cheeky bump and tack on a trio of archetypes I created for this class as well:

One is a sort of arcane trickster-inspired guy focused on stealing spells who gets at-will supernatural ranged dirty trick maneuvers. The primal warlock is basically a warlock, with at-will blasting, but with some cool blood magic thrown in. The theurgic scholar is sort of the mystic theurge - but in heroic adept archetype form, and thus playable from level 1! :)
