Your formatting... needs work. Sorry. It's hard to read and understand some of this.

Also, you have to be careful with size increasing on die. It is entirely possible to get up to like something like 8d100 by using all but one of your class talent tree choices on improved explosion. I only stop there because I'm not sure what dice size comes after 100. Things that increase spell damage die typically do not advance past d12 since the numbers get weird trying to use a system like the weapon damage die increase when you have a very variable number of dice at hand.

Using plus signs to indicate where you add in negative numbers is mathematically correct but unintuitive in a game system.

Also, unless you put a lot into recovery, on average your character is basically useless beyond exploding once a fight. That's not good design, especially for a base class.

d14s don't exist and d10+d4 is not the same thing. d10 has an average roll of 5.5 ((1+10)/2). d4 has an average of 2.5 ((1+4)/2). d14 if it existed would have an average of 7.5 ((1+14)/2), which is 0.5 less than d10+d4 (which is another +10 HP by 20). And basically that's just way too much HP to be giving someone since they already run on high con.

I am Jacks complete lack of suprise.

I changed recovery time to 5 +...
I changed improved explosion to stop at +1d20

I spent 12 hours on this so it might be a "little" hard to understand at the end and i may be a little tired

EDIT: i also changes the HD

d14s don't exist and d10+d4 is not the same thing. d10 has an average roll of 5.5 ((1+10)/2). d4 has an average of 2.5 ((1+4)/2). d14 if it existed would have an average of 7.5 ((1+14)/2), which is 0.5 less than d10+d4 (which is another +10 HP by 20). And basically that's just way too much HP to be giving someone since they already run on high con.

That is not true. They do exist, they're just rare (and mildly expensive for a single die). I happen to have one. I'd also point out that d3, d5, d7, d16, d24, d30, & d50 exist so as to clarify the what die exist situation.

As for the class, it seems quite entertaining, but as stated befor, the abount of time they are unable to act after an explosion is a bit high to be useful.

Interesting. Learn something new every day. I knew d3 (via cleverness), d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 and a technically impossible d100 (it's a giant ball and it's not actually a regular polygon) existed, but that was it.

Anyway, especially for being able to fight basically only once in a fight, his damage is really really low. He can get up to 10d20, which is 105 damage in return for sitting out most of a fight. He would probably do more than that with a full attack, a greatsword, and power attack.

I fixed recovery again but in just to lasy to fix imp recov.
also if you have 2 spiked shields and spiked gauntlets and spiked armor
when you detonate you could do alot of damage
EDIT: fixed imp recov
