    Default GitP PrC XX: Voting Thread!

    It's that time of the month again.... yeah, that's a terrible joke.

    Anyhow, moving on, let's get voting! Voting is open from today to August 8th at midnight (Central time)! We've got a lot of good entries (and a couple rather odd ones) and some of them are really strong. Vote for the ONE class you think should win!

    Alright!

    Last minute voting helps DragoonWraith pull it out in the end with Shadow of a Murder winning narrowly! Honorable mentions to Samb's Fate Blessed and Doctor Acula's Shadowpath Trader!

    Fate's Blessed by Samb. Always liked the idea behind luck rerolls, but the execution fell flat. Samb made the system workable and add some flair. I love that the class gives you benefits for both using your luck and storing it.

    I really like the X-Factor, I really do but my vote goes for the Shadowpath Trader by the doctor. I love its fluff so much.

    I need to go through those classes I haven't PEACHed, and go over the ones I have again, before I can vote. Merk, thanks for the vote, heh, but I don't think I'll be voting for myself - and not out of distaste for doing so, so much as because I'm not entirely satisfied with it.

    Tough call. I really like the Ghost Wyrm, the Mindbreak Stalker and the Shadow of Murder. However, of the three the Mindbreak seems to be the best overall.

    I vote for Fate's Blessed

    Personally it would be the class I'd most like to play.

    Shadow of a Murder is very nicely done as well, great presentation.

    Tiny Thief is top notch, I really enjoyed reading it and might play it some day.

    Shadowpath Trader would make an amazing returning NPC, I might use it in my campaigns!

    Lots of cool classes, as usual. I'm going to have to go with Fate's Blessed. Shadowpath Trader and Ghost Wyrm were also very flavorful, but I can't see myself playing either of them in a game, and that tipped the balance.
    People seemed to like this better, but only marginally so - the way one might prefer to be stabbed than shot. Optimally, one isn't stabbed or shot. Optimally, one eats some cake! But there are times when cake is not available, and instead we are destroyed. This is the deep poetry of the universe. -- Tycho Brahe

    I'll cast my vote for the Dissembler. Unique as all get out, and monsters deserve more nice things class-wise.

    Plus, I like the idea of springing like, 5 of these on a higher-level party.

    I'm down to either the Shadow Hand Assassin, which grew on me after I PEACHed it, the Dissembler, or DW's Shadow of Murder for all the work he has put into it, but after seeing Hyooz's idea, I've got to go with the Dissember.

    X Factor for me. Since the fluff is pretty good for pretty much everything, it boiled down to mechanics and operability. X Factor works off the most solid and versatile power base in maneuvers (if I had another vote, I might go Shadow Hand Assassin as well), but also adds on to that versatility with the abilities that allow you to adapt to whatever you are fighting.

    Usually the problem with shadow-based things IMO is that they straightjacket you into one way of fighting, and if someone deciphers a weakness you face being shafted. And as much as I like the Shadowpath Trader, 3d6 points of skirmish isn't enough to get it done. As much as I would not like to be the person who says that D&D is mostly built on combat, I've found that this maxim generally holds true. Then the thieves are all have their own weaknesses in combat (a la anything that's immune to critical hits or, in the case of the tiny thief, anything that can grapple). In terms of combat efficacy, mindbreak would be number 2, but it suffers from the same problems stated above about shoehorning people into one fighting style. So X Factor it is.

    My favorite class is the ranger, a fact that I am ashamed of because the 3.5e incarnation of it kind of sucks. As a result, I'm very stubborn and opinionated concerning what I think a ranger should be, so if you post a ranger variant I will probably post what I think about it for good or ill.

    I've reread the entries, and though there are many vying for my vote here (so many great options), I have to vote for the Master Thief. I just love the way it is a true high-level alternative for a Rogue, that doesn't advance Sneak Attack but gives an alternative to it. I really, really like it.

    Honorable mentions have to go to the Fate's Blessed, for turning a mechanic I don't find very interesting (Luck rerolls) into something very cool, and to the Shadow Hand Assassin, for a class that I'm going to ask my DM about allowing.
