    Default Help making a (balanced) meta-knight?

    So my DM has, after a lot of jokes about it, decided to let me take levels in the theoretical class "Meta-knight". The class, of course, being focused on meta knowledge and other things that directly interact with things such as dice. My character is currently a grapple barbarian, so lockdown/damage. Has anyone made a class like this without it being horrendously broken? I can't think of any class features besides Proficiency: Meta Knowledge, which would give a chance to know what something is offhand, sort of similar to Bardic Knowledge but with more of a focus on not knowing why they know what they do. Any help would be really appreciated.

    So, here's the deal: I'll build something like this, but it's probably not gonna be anything like what you want. Personally, I'd build it as a bard or warlock subclass...in fact, I'll do both, and see how you like them.

    I mean, I think I'll still be grappling either way, so I'm just looking to keep my current role in the party.

    One of the abilities should definitely grant re-rolls on important checks. Kind of like the lucky feat.

    Permanent Telepathic Bond for the party would be appropriate as well.

    Ninja_Prawn, I was certainly thinking of that as the 6th level ability for the Warlock. I know have the interesting idea of this group of sages, dedicated to learning the Game, channeling the DM, and preparing to someday be controlled by a Player.

    Excellent! I'll send these over to my DM right away for approval. I'll probably take the Bard one, but we have a Warlock that would definitely benefit from this as well.

    Could you make a Meta-Knight subclass for the Fighter or Rogue? Playing a more martial Deadpool-esque character would be awesome :D

    Also a Meta-Cleric and Paladin would both also be cool :D
