    So...

    If I were to dip a level into Fighter, would I get 1d8 Brutal Strike dice?

    If not, how many levels would I need?

    No as you are not a fighter but another class


    and not starting off as a fighter but not another class will not net you the fighter's d8 brutal stike.

    I am going to have to ammedn that fighters onyl get d8 if they only class they have is fighter, so people cannot use cheap tricks like the one you just pointed out.

    OK...

    So you are saying that the main strength of 3.5e, namely that you can multiclass easily, is a "cheap" trick?

    Why not have it so if they dip 1 level in fighter, they would deal 1d8+5d4 damage with a brutal strike at 20th level? So that it's more organic?

    its not the aspect of multiclassing that is cheap.

    its that people out there will only go 1 or 2 levels into a class to min/max their character.

    i hav enothing against a cleric 4/fighter2/war priest 10

    but i do have something against a barbarian lion guy thingy 1/fighter 4/warblade2/cloistered cleric 2/paladin 2/rogue 3/ monk 2.

    and no I have no idea if the example i just gave is even playable.. just an example.

    to be more organic you need to wait tuntill you got a 4th level with your fighter to get that extra d8 to your brutal strike

    so lets say that you just hit 13th level as a rogue, brutal strike for you is dealing 4d4 damage, you hit 14th level and take Fighter well, you are not at your every 4th level yet, so you need 2 more fighter levels to get that d8, at 16th youd be rogue 13/fighter 3 and be doing 4d4+1d8 brutal strike damage.

    does my example make any sense? it seems a bit confusing to me and im the one who typed it
    you only gain an additional brutal strike damage dice every 4th level, apart from your very first level, sort of how like you only gain X4 skill points at your very first level.

    Question about brutal strike.
    You can only get it as a single classed fighter? So if someone wants to make a gish type (Ftr6, wiz1, abjurant champ PrC), he loses his Brutal Strike?
    Or, more likely, say a dwarf takes levels in the Dwarf Paragon class, but is also a fighter. He's emphasizing his dwarfiness (which has fighter as a favored class), at the cost of his brutal strike? Ditto for I think orcs, halforcs, and male drow.

    And how does it work if someone is playing a more elegant duelist type fighter?

    Why do so many of your fighter feats require odd levels of fighter? Pretty much every core fighter feat requires an even level of fighter. Some based off of BAB only are odd numbers, but those aren't fighter only.
    Spoiler

    Unstoppable is pretty much epic level. http://www.d20srd.org/srd/epic/prest...readnought.htm

    I like interpose. It might be nice to stick on a devoted defender character (sword and fist)

    Unmovable. What do you mean by 'gain half the bonus?' Half the bonus that unmovable grants?

    Shrug off Punishment. It looks good, and is close to what a caster gets with a reserve feat. Except casters get infinite uses, and get more abilities than just temp HP. http://dndtools.eu/feats/complete-ma...peshift--1961/ Possibly change it to to be a little stronger or have fewer limits?

    Second Wind is nice. But even with a 20 Con, a 10th level fighter is only healing himself by 20 points. Maybe give him uses equal to his fighter level? Personally it reminds me of the healing surge from 4E, and of Iron Heart Surge from ToB.
    Delayed CLeave is nice. I might take it if a DM shows up. It's also listed twice.

    Fortification. Are you negating the entire hit, or just the fact that it's a critical? Listed twice

    Strategist looks like 5 different feats in one.

    Penetrate. Don't worry about DR. Most DR is piddling amounts of damage.

    Heroic Action. Fighters have little need for swift or immediate actions. ToB characters use them a lot. Even with the other feats you've created. And most people will just take the swift I think. IF they need an immediate, they can just take use their regular swift action for an immediate, and keep their second swift.

    You've got a blank after Stalwart.

    Great Fortitude already exists. Might want to rename yours. http://dndtools.eu/feats/players-han...rtitude--1263/ Maybe improved fortitude... Grants extra +2 on fort saves (stacks with regular great fortitude)

    Imp Great fortitude. Seems odd that it relies on your BAB, and not your con modifier. Maybe include a line that says it should count in place of toughness or improved toughness for prereqs, since it does the same effect.
    If renaming your great fortitude, I guess call this superior fortitude

    Defensive shield. Could you add a synergy thing? Two people with it, A and B. A fights defensively. B gets the bonuses like you described. B fights defensively, and A gets the bonus.
    Can you add a line so that two people using it together get further bonuses? Like the old roman shieldwall?

    Improved Defensive FIghting. I think it should require combat expertise, rather than dodge.

    Unbalancing blow. Might want to specify that you only make a single melee attack. I can see people trying to combine this with other feats that require a single attack as a standard action. Maybe make it like Power Attack, where it applies on AOOs made during someone elses turn.

    The thing is, melee as it is now is encouraged to dip around and experiment with new class features.

    That example with all the dipping?

    Weaker than your first example, with just a few of the fun options that make playing mundane worthwhile.

    By organic, I mean more of a "Fighters of Xth level deal d6 brutal strike damage; after Y levels that improves to d8s."

    Then keep going up; there is no reason why they shouldn't be tossing around d12s at higher levels.

    So, let them use d6s at 3rd level, say, then at 7th it improves to d8s, then at 11th they become d10s, and at 15th they become d12s. It's smooth, it encourages investing in Fighters (even if they only go 3 levels, there is a bonus feat and that magical Fighter level 4 at the next level...)

    Ok, since brutal strikes is a bit confusing here is a couple of examples

    A guy starts out as a wizard and eventually wants to go into lets say Eldrith knight.

    he starts with 1d4 brutal strike damage advances to 4th level as a wizard and picks up another 1d4 brutal strike damage, well he needs 3rd level spells and all martiail weapon profs to qualify for a EK, so he goes 1 more level in wizard and then he takes his first level in Fighter, but as he is only a 6th level character, he dos not get the 1d8 brutal strike damage die, he needs to take 2 more levels in fighter to get teh 8th level bonus brutal strike damage die, and so he ends up going to fighter 3 to pick up that 1d8 brutal strike damage. so at level 8 he has 2d4+1d8 brutal damage die.

    alternatively he could have started as a fighter an gotten than 1d8 right off the bat. you only gain brutal strike damage at you very first level and at every 4th level. so in a ways it like a combination of the X4 skill points and ability increases. YOu get a brutal damage die for every 4th level and you also get a die at 1st level, not 1st level in any class your very first level.

    I hope this clearifies some things

    and these version of great fortitude, iron will, and lightning reflexes are menta to repalce a duo of feats Great fortitude+endurance in the case of my great fortitude, and dodge+lightning reflex for my version of lightning reflexes.

    I know that some of these are rips form 'epic' classes but I mean seriously none of those abilities scream to me 'EPIC' these are thnigs that I think a fighter should just be able to do. when you look wta what they gave 'epic; mundane (if there an be called such a thing) and then you look at what they are supposed to be competting against ( epic spells and those sweet epic abiities) id say the entire dreadnaught class is a JOKE! it shooul dhave been condesed down to a 5 level PrC and made availbe at 10th level.

    just take a look at what 5-7th level spells and abilities can do then compare untoppabel, unmoveaable and the like to what those can do. and you'll see what I mean.

    2nd widn is not there for the healing aspect but more for the status effect removall, the HP is BUt thanks for catching something is supoed to be 2(con+level) not 2con+level not a huge difference but a nice one,

    with fortification you are just negating the critical, i'll clearify that

    the reason why i require BAB on a lot fo thngs is most of the feast here are easily replicated and often times more superior in spell form. so the 'weight' of having a full BAB means you get to do nice things more often than others.

    oh and by half the bonus. that for when the fighters uses that ability to get a save on a spell that does not allows a save, he only gets half the bonus from the feat. those last 2 snetaces should be better connected I guess LOL.

    I was under the impression that feats should not scale with level.

    And... my goodness. That's a lot of feats. Maybe if you grouped them according to archetype? (Battlefield controller, intimidation, tank, charger, etc.) It's hard to get one's mind around them all at once.

    I am also not sure that they all need to have fighter level prerequisites. Barbarians, say, won't be taking many of these feats - they don't have bonus feats like fighters do, and they need to improve their rage and stuff. If you do have a fighter level prerequisite, I think it should be for those feats like shock trooper that give multiple options. It would be like 3 feats in one.

    ACF's that give benefits at odd fighter levels might also work. Especially levels 5, 7 and 9. If you take 9 levels of fighter that's not a dip anymore.

    I'm gonna add some basic maths in regard to balance :

    A fighter has less feats than a wizard has spells, yet they should be around the same power level (should being key word here).

    Conclusion? Feats should be better than spells. Soem of your new feats options are nice, but i think they aren't enough, sadly.
    I just moved with my gf, and might need some time to find the perfect spot for my cpu. Still trying to keep up with my games.

    I sort of agree with you ( see my time stop in a feat, feat, or my comand in a feat, or bull's strength in a feat etc) but You also have to realize that some feats are always on, while some can be used conintuously, or at any given time.

    Interpose is basically a suped up version of shield other, and is going to get and at levle 20 is going to have 7+Wis modifer times it can be used> and that is the power level im working towards, maybe not as striaght up as powerful as a spell, they ability to be used more oftne or just on at any time makes up for the fact. I do not want these feast taking the fighter from 'tier' 5 to 'tier' 2 because really.. those top 2 'tier's are just a little too crazy.

    SO while they should be as strong as spells, there is now way I cna justify giving a fighter a feat that is as powerful as say.. Gate or shapechange

    Since verybody gets feats, thats another reason why some feast are BaB dependant, becuase hey MR caster you alreayd have things that are more powerful than what any mundane class can do, so NO you do not get the super cool feats.
