    Default [3.5]Planar marine (WH40K based)

    So, despite the ways I some times act, I actually find WH40K pretty cool. And what I find cool I try to implement in D&D. Altough WH40k is heavily based on massive battles, there's plenty of potential for individual characters full of cool abilities. Unforenely the oficial WH40K Rpg, dark legacy, focuses on the weaker guys of the emperium. I want to play the powered armor guy with adamantium bones damnit! Thus let's start with the most infamous WH40K hero, the space planar marine!

    This isn't a thread to discuss WH40k. This is a thread to create a fun not broken class based on WH40K. If you think that speech merines should be immune to magic and gain feats every level because whatever book you readed had them curb stomping chaos sorcers and cultists like it was nothing, then please exit this thread. Thank you very much.

    So, besides those excluded by the disclaimer, I'm open to all critiques! If people seem to like my work, I may advance to homebrewing other facets of WH40K.

    Planar Marine

    Onwards! To glory!

    Nobody knows from where they came from, but long ago someone developed a series of rituals, training methods, brainwashing and oils wich would turn any normal humanoid into a mighty unstopable, fearless, killing machine during the course of several years. To back them up there were also designed a series of powerfull weapons, armor and equipment. Their purpose was to conquer the multiverse in a so called Great Crusade. To keep them united a long code was created and brainwased into each new warrior to make sure they would fight for the same side. Togheter, they conquered world after world, starting to be known as the Planar Marines for their transports, massive flying vessels wich jumped trough the planes barriers. But alas life means imperfection, and after some centuries some of the warriors began to see diferent interpretations of the original code, and soon they started to fight against their own brothers, divided in a thousand factions. The powerfull imperium they created was broken, but the warriors endured, each one hiding or melding with the popultaion of the planets they had reached, starting then to look for new candidates for their ranks, to fuel their never ending war.


    Gender:male. The rituals to create a Plane Marine only worck in male individuals due to being based on enanching the natural agressivety and stubborness found on them.

    Class skills:Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Handle Animal (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Ride (Dex), and Swim (Str).

    2+int skill points per level

    Weapon proefeciencies:
    all simple and martial, any PM weapon they acquire.

    Armor profeciencies:
    all armor and shields, including tower shields.

    Class features:

    Chapter: the PM receives his equipment and special training from a extremely ritualistic organization, normally called a chapter. If they start acting chaotic they won't be able to advance as a PM anymore as their chapter condemns their actions. Details should be discussed with the DM pre-campaign.

    And he shall know no fear(ex): A Plane Marine may use remove fear as the spell on himself once per day per each 2 class levels he has. If he begins his turn affected by any fear effect, he may use this ability as a free action even if it could normally take no actions. Caster level equal to his class level.

    Faith(ex): The PM's beliefs are so powerfull that reality itself may bend to his sheer force of will. A PM has a certain number of faith points wich he can use to fuel special abilities. A PM can have faith points up to (PM level+wis modifier) and regains them at the rate of wis modifier/2, rounded down, per hour(minimum 1). Some of these special abilities allow you to sustain an effect by sacrifcing your faith points regeneration. In that case, each aditional effect you try to sustain beyond the first gives you negative faith point regeneration(so you lose wis modifier/2 faith points, rounded down, per hour, per each extra sustain), and when you reach zero faith points you lose all the sustained effects. When you end a sustained effect, you need to wait one hour to regain your normal faith regeneration.

    Whenever a PM spends a faith point to fuel any ability he may choose to glow whole or make himself glow as a torch, iluminating 5 feets per PM level. At 10th level the glow increases to the effect of a daylight spell, iluminating 10 feets per PM level.

    Wargear: As they advance in this class a PM is awarded special customized wargear from the organization that started to train him. Each of these weapons is specially built for a specific individual and in the hands of anyone else is nothing more than a pointy stick.

    All wargear is crafted from the finest alloys and specially made to whitstand all but the strongest attacks. Each piece has 50 HP and DR20. They're also protected with special runes wich render the wargear highly resistant to magic. While used by the PM, any wargear gets one fort save if it would be destroyed by any magic, extraordinary or supernatural effect, using the PM's save. If the effect allowed a save in the first place then the PM can do both saves to try to save it's wargear. If If by any reasons a PM loses a piece of wargear they may make an atonement quest to receive a new one from their organization.

    All wargear can be enchanted as normal items and is considered masterworck.

    All PM start with power armor and one wargear of his choice. At second level they may choose a new piece and then another piece every two levels from the on. Many wargears have level or other wargears as pre-requisite.

    A PM may swap one older wargear he had for a new one for wich he meets the pre-requisites whenever he gains a new one, as long as he still meets the pre-requisites for all his other wargear. All PM weapons can be fired multiple times per turn with iterative attacks and any other trick wich grants extra normal attacks.

    If a PM even tries to sell any of his wargear to anyone, he's automatically declared an heretic and will be mercilessly hunted by any means available from his foster chapter.

    Damages given here are for a medium PM. Bigger or smaller creatures deal more or less damage acordingly.

    This finely crafted suit is specially fited to the PM and actually works more as a second skin than an armor, altough it makes noncombat work much harder. It counts as light armor, and it grants +6 to AC, with no maximum dexterity limit, -12 skill penalty and 50% ASF.

    Battle brother:
    At level 5, the PM training has by now completely transformed it. It grows one size category. It doesn't gain or lose any stats, but all other things like size penalty to hit and AC, bonuses to grapple/bull rush/trip and increased weapon damage apply. It also gains +1 Nat armor bonus, DR 1/- and resistance to all energies 2 as it's sking toughness.

    Veteran: At level 9 the PM has more than proved his worth to the chapter. It gains DR 2/-, resistance to all energies 4, +2 Nat armor and it gains leadership as a bonus feat. The cohorts and followers come from the chapter and are all fanatically loyal to the PM, to the point that if they get killed the leadership score of the PM doesn't receive any penalty, and replacements are provided whitin 1d6 days for each lost cohort/follower. However, neither of those bring any valuable equipment, and the PM must equip them at his own expenses.

    If the PM doesn't feel like having followers, he may pick any feat to wich he meets the pre-requisites instead of this improved leadership.

    Captain: At level 14 the PM is nothing less than a legend among the chapter for his deeds. +3 Nat armor, DR 3/-, resistance to all energies 6, and he now atracts double the number of cohorts and followers. Or another extra feat instead of this last bonus.

    Chapter Master:
    At level 17th level the PM is one of the top soldiers of the chapter. +4 nat armor, DR 4/-, resistance to all energies 8. He now atracts triple the number of cohorts and followers. Or another extra feat instead of this last bonus.

    fluff looks good do not know about the mechanics as it is midnight here in tx so i can look and see how comparable the wargear is to the weapon and armor.

    Maybe a little late (since this thread is here allready for a very very very long time, but some abilities (especially the Tempest Blade) seem to be slightly overpowered. I do like the concept though.

    Actually, you are not supposed to dig up threads that are older than a month: that's thread necromancy and against the board rules.
