Thanks, and yea I'm still working on the Example character (which is going to be a character I intend to use sometime, + Gestalt.) And Yes, Touch spells are quite dominant it seems. Though that was intended.That said, I really like this class! It does a better job of portraying a samurai-ish character from any anime I've seen better than any others I've looked at. I like the little bit about the alignment, the flavor and 'feel' of the abilities, and they all scale in power nicely. Plus, they get flexible spellcasting, but it's not too flexible, and an aesthetic sage will naturally be prone to picking touch spells as an added balancing factor.
I never go below 4, but very well. Down to 4 it is. (but they generally are quite skilled in the shows.)The only suggestions I would offer is to perhaps drop the skills per level (2 or 4) and possibly the Hit Dice, but that one's kinda 'eh.' Oh, and add on a typed bonus for Form abilities to help avoid confusion on stacking (Insight looks like a good fit). Additionally, the class features could use a bit of clean up and polish, but things read decently as is.
Overall, looks good, feels right, and well-balanced. Good work
Yes, I was just adding a bonus in the current edit thats up in another tab. Unsurprisingly, it is Insight afterall :P
Finished. Or so I think.
