    Default The Final Fantasy Job System in a Class: Freelancer

    Freelancer




    A Freelancer is an adventurer, a hero of a thousand faces, whose skills and talents are niche but able to change quickly and wildly. They are a master of the many Jobs required of a Light Warrior, and able to don one and with it the skills associated, and then shed it for another when needed.

    Adventures: The primary reason a Freelancer adventures is to find and protect the Four Crystals from whatever dark force is threatening them now. Inevitably they will gather friends and relationships across the world as they fail time and time again to protect the crystals only to discover that there was secretly a second set of Dark Crystals which complemented the Light Crystals (or some other means of repeating the task of protecting four crystals). They will again usually fail, often due to choosing the fate of a loved one over the fate of the world, only to rise up and defeat the dark force directly at the moment of its victory and restore the world. More recently they have gone beyond this plot... Now there usually aren't crystals, but some other macguffin! Outside of badly attempting to protect world keystone macguffins, freelancers adventure for the same reasons other adventurers do.

    Characteristics: The Freelancer is able to shift between various Jobs which each grant a different set of abilities, and limited mixing and matching of abilities from within these jobs. These Jobs give them a large number of tactical options, but few long term strategic options. With the right Job a Freelancer can wield Color Magic to heal allies or damage foes, use Chivalry or Holy Arts to protect allies, use Leap Skills to move across the battlefield attacking foes, or a variety of other options.

    Alignment: Freelancers may be of any alignment. Most Freelancers are Good aligned as they are often chosen by some force of Light as its special Warriors, but not all are Good. Freelancers show no other strong alignment tendencies.

    Religion: Freelancers may follow any religion. The only one they show particular leanings towards are those that somehow are dedicated to preventing the apocalypse often worshiping macguffins.

    Background: The main method of becoming a Freelancer is to be chosen, others just luck into it.

    Races: Freelancers may be of any race, being chosen by fate and luck plays no favorites... except apparently humans, because we are humans.

    Other Classes: In their native environs Freelancer is the only class. Outside of it they may be viewed as dabblers by many.

    Role: A Freelancer fills roles as needed. Their Jobs allow them a wide variety of skills, the ability to serve as a melee combatant, though rarely as well as warblade or crusader, limited access to short duration buffs and debuffs, blasting spells, healing spells, and a large variety of tactical roles.

    Adaptation: First and foremost, as may end up mentioned in Forbidden Jobs if I get to it, new Jobs or certain Jobs removed tailoring their abilities to the setting.

    Secondly the class itself can be modified for varying power levels. As written it is a class capable of changing its abilities on the fly each day to a massive degree which makes it a highly complicated and complex class, and also theoretically gives it a very high power ceiling. One variant would be to remove their unique jobs per day, limit changing equipped Passives and Commands to level up, and give them 2 Jobs of the 1st Tier, and 1 of each higher Tier and make those Jobs automatically level to their Job level limit. This introduces a problem of dead levels but makes it so that the class is much simpler to play and build.

    A more limiting option would be to remove Job change entirely and instead give them two Jobs from any tiers at 1st level. You would gain all passives from both Jobs, which would always be at max level, and all inherents from both Jobs, sort of as if Gestalting those Jobs.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Freelancers have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Freelancers can make use of any ability score. As they can fulfill the melee combatant role they use the three physical ability scores like any other melee combatant. Their MP is dependent upon their Intelligence score, their Wisdom determines their healing capabilities, and their Charisma determines the saving throw DCs of their Color Magic and most of their abilities.
    Alignment: Any.
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As barbarian.
    Starting Gold: As fighter

    Class Skills
    The Freelancer's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Craft (Int), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Speak Language (n/a), and Spot (Wis)

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Freelancer.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Freelancer is by default proficient in simple weapons, shields (except tower shields), and light and medium armor. These proficiencies may change depending upon current job and equipped passives.

    Job System General Rules: A Freelancer may equip one of many Jobs at a time, or no Job. To equip a Job requires 10 minutes of meditation and a Freelancer is limited in their total number of different Jobs they may equip in any given day based upon their level. To equip a Job a Freelancer must have access to Jobs of its Crystal.

    Each Job has an associated Job level, Command ability, set of Inherent abilities, and set of Passive abilities. When a Job is equipped you have access to its Command ability and all abilities therein available at the Job level you have obtained in that job, all of its Inherent abilities, and all Passive abilities available at the Job level you have obtained in that Job. In addition you may equip the Command ability of any 1 other Job you possess gaining all abilities therein up to the Job level in that Job, and you may equip a number of Passive abilities from other Jobs. Each passive ability has an associated cost in slots and you have an amount of slots based upon your Freelancer level; you may only equip a Passive that you have access to due to your Job level in that Job. The number of slots available to you is shown on the table above.

    When you have no Job equipped you may still equip a number passive abilities and command abilities. When you have no Job equipped you gain the number of passive slots shown in parenthesis on the table above and you may equip any 2 command abilities you have available to you.

    You may change equipped Command Abilities and Passive Abilities for 2 Jobs each day, as well as for your state with no Job equipped. To do so requires 8 hours of rest and then 1 hour of concentration.

    Command Abilities (over view): Each Job has an associated Command Ability. Each Command Ability is further broken up into a list of abilities, usually 1 per Job level. When you are in the associated Job or have the Command Ability equipped you gain it at your Job level in the associated Job. For spell-like abilities your Caster Level equals twice your relevant Job level.

    Many Jobs grant access to Color Magic which can be divided into Black, Red, Summon, Time, and White Magic. Color Magic grants access to spellcasting using an MP system, and may suffer Spell Failure based upon your armor depending upon which Jobs grant the ability. For example Black Magic granted by the Black Mage Job suffers (Arcane) Spell Failure in Medium or heavier armor, Red Magic granted by the Red Mage Job on the other hand never suffers Spell Failure when you are wearing armor you are proficient in, and if you have 2 Commands equipped which grant access to Color Magic you only suffer spell failure for either if you would for both. Certain abilities may affect all Color Magic you possess, and your Caster Level for Color Magic spells is twice the highest Job level among Jobs which you have Command Abilities that grant Color Magic equipped up to your Freelancer level. The save DC for any Color Magic spell is 10 + its (effective) spell level + your Charisma modifier.

    Some Command Abilities have sub-abilities which possess a tag or descriptor. If there are any special rules about this tag they are mentioned in that Command Ability; in some cases the tag simply indicates interaction with certain Passives or other abilities.

    Inherent Abilities: Each Job has an associated list of Inherent Abilities. Each Job has one Perfected [Name] Inherent which grants one or more Good saves and a MP Growth inherent which determines your MP as shown on the table below. Most Jobs also have Weapon Proficiency, Armor Proficiency, Job HP Bonus, and BAB Inherents which determine these factors when you have that Job equipped. All Inherents exist as Passive Abilities as well, but not all Jobs which grant that Inherent also grant it as a Passive Ability.

    Passive Abilities: Each Job grants a variety of Passive Abilities. As mentioned above Passive Abilities up to your associated Job level are automatically equipped when that Job is equipped and you may equip a number of other Passive Abilities.

    Like Command Abilities some Passive Abilities have descriptors. Those that exist on only one Job (note: Forbidden Jobs if they get made are not counted here) will be defined in that Job's abilities. There is one tag that appears in several Jobs and must be noted here instead. It is [Counter]

    [Counter] Abilities allow you to after a certain action is taken spend an attack of opportunity (either your 1/round or one of the additional attacks granted by Combat Reflexes) to perform an action of your own. In many cases this action is an attack, though certain exceptions do exist. Most [Counter] abilities are limited by your threatened area, though some allow you to use held thrown or ranged weapons or spells and make the attack within their range, and the Bow Counter passive allows you to use any counter that would make a weapon attack in that range. [Counter]s take place after the triggering ability so if you have a [Counter] ability which is triggered by being the target of a spell you cannot use it to disrupt that spell. No matter how many [Counter] abilities would be triggered by a single action you may only use one in response to a single action; if you have the Counter and Counterstrike abilities causing successful attacks against you and all attacks against you respectively to trigger counters and a creature successfully hits you then you may make 1 counter-attack, conversely if they successfully hit you 5 times and you had 5 attacks of opportunity you could make 5 counter attacks.

    Common Inherent and Passive Abilities: The following abilities are common to many separate Jobs and as such are listed here instead of in each Job individually:

    Spoiler
    Show
    • [Job] Skills: These passives (and inherents) grant you virtual ranks in a list of skills equal to your job level +1. These virtual ranks function as real skill ranks and stack with real skill ranks up to your character level + 3 ranks. Any ranks beyond character level +3 are wasted. Each [Job] Skills passive will list its slot cost.
    • Job HP Bonus: You gain the listed bonus hit points per Job level in the awarding job. As an inherent job ability a Job HP Bonus can be negative in which case you suffer a penalty to hit points per Class level. If you equip a Job HP Bonus as a passive it replaces your inherent Job HP Bonus ad you may only equip one Job HP Bonus at a time. A Job HP bonus costs 1 additional slot to equip if your inherent is a penalty, or 2 additional slots if it is a -2 penalty. +2 HP/Job level Job HP Bonuses are 2 Slots, +4 HP/Job level Job HP Bonuses are 4 Slots.
    • MP Growth: You use the listed MP Growth Track. Each Job has this as an inherent ability ranging from slowest to fastest, and some jobs gain it as a passive. If equipped as a passive it replaces your inherent (you do not stack MP amount). There is a passive that causes you to use the track one better than your equipped MP Growth ability would indicate. MP Growth abilities cost 1 additional slot to equip if your inherent is Slow and 2 additional slots if it is Slowest. Fast MP Growth costs 4 slots to equip, Fastest costs 6 slots.
    • Perfected Fortitude: You use the Good progression for your Fortitude save. This costs 3 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Reflexes: You use the Good progression for your Reflex save. This costs 3 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Will: You use the Good progression for your Will save. This costs 3 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Puissance: You use the Good progression for your Fortitude and Reflex saves. This costs 5 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Persistence: You use the Good progression for your Fortitude and Will saves. This costs 5 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Cunning: You use the Good progression for your Reflex and Will saves. This costs 5 slots to equip.
    • Perfected Saves: You use the Good progression for all saves. This costs 6 slots to equip.
    • Combat Skill: You use the Medium (Cleric) BAB progression. This costs 2 slots to equip.
    • Combat Mastery: You use the Good (Fighter) BAB progression. This costs 4 slots to equip if you have Combat Skill as an inherent or 6 otherwise.
    • [Job] Weapon Proficiencies: You gain proficiency in the listed weapons.
    • [Job] Armor Proficiencies: You gain proficiency in the listed types of armor. Light Armor Proficiency costs 2 slots, Medium costs 3 slots or 5 slots if you are not inherently proficient in light armor, Heavy costs 5 slots or 7 if you are not inherently proficient in light armor.



    Job Levels: At each level past 2nd a Freelancer gains a number of Job levels they may assign between the Jobs they have access to. Each Job begins with 1 level as soon as a Freelancer gains access to it, and a job may never be higher level than the maximum listed on the table above (1/2 class level rounded up). The amount of Job levels gained at each level is shown on the table above, with the number in parenthesis indicating additional Job levels which may only be assigned to Jobs at less than 1/2 your maximum Job level (rounded up; if your maximum Job level is 6 you could put these into level 2 or lower jobs, if it is 7 you could put them into level 3 or lower jobs). Job levels are added one at a time. At 5th level, 9th level, 13th level, and 17th level a Freelancer gains 1 job level in each job they currently have access to instead of assigning them normally.

    MP: A Freelancer gains MP based upon their current MP Growth ability and their Intelligence score. A Freelancer gains bonus MP based on their Intelligence at the same rate as a Psion gains bonus PP (as shown here). A Freelancer's class based MP is shown on the table below.

    MP Damage and Traditional Spellcasting: Spells, Mysteries, and similar abilities with effective spell levels (such as Spell-like Abilities) can still be affected by MP damaging and draining abilities. Psionics treat PP as MP for such effects, losing 1 PP for each MP they would have lost. Traditional spellcasting and spell-like abilities is treated somewhat differently. A spell slot is considered to be equivalent to 1 MP + 2 MP per level beyond 1st, as is a spell-like ability with a daily, weekly, or longer limit. Level 0 spells and at-will spell-like abilities are considered to cost 0 MP and are not affected by MP damage or drain. If a traditional spellcaster suffers MP damage then they lose 1 spell slot worth an equivalent amount of MP (if it is an even number of MP lost round up), if they have no single spell slot of a high enough level they lose one of their highest level and another to make up the difference; if two of their highest level are not sufficient they repeat until the total MP of all slots used is sufficient or until they have no slots left. If a character has MP and traditional spell casting then they lose MP first and spell slots second.

    Changing Maximum HP and MP: It is possible for a Freelancer to change their maximum HP or MP during a day by changing their job or passives. When a Freelancer changes their HP or MP maximum in this way their current total is changed as well by the same amount. This may reduce them to negative MP.

    Air Crystal Jobs: At first level a Freelancer gains access to the Black Mage, Knight, Monk, Thief, and White Mage Jobs.

    Freelancer Aura (Ex): Certain Job abilities have a range based upon the Freelancer's (aura). This (aura) has no effect on its own, but instead is a simply measure of the distance of a Freelancer's abilities which grant them auras and certain other abilities. The range of a Freelancer's (aura) is listed on the table above.

    Freelancer Inherent Abilities: When a Freelancer has no job equipped they are considered to have the Simple Weapons Proficiency, Medium Armor Proficiency, Combat Skill (giving them cleric BAB as shown on the table above), Shield Proficiency (excluding Tower), and Medium MP Growth inherent abilities. In addition at 1st level they may choose one of Perfected Fortitude, Perfected Reflex, and Perfected Will and they gain that ability as an inherent ability (making it use the Good save progression instead of Poor).

    Job Change (Ex): By spending 10 minutes in concentration a Freelancer may change their currently equipped job to any other that they have access to. A Freelancer may only change to 2 different jobs each day (no job does not count against this limit). This increases to 3 at 7th level, 4 at 11th, 5 at 15th, and 6 at 18th level.

    Talented Learner (Ex): When spending skill points as a Freelancer each skill point put into a cross-classed skill grants you 1 rank in that skill as opposed to 1/2. This does not allow you to go over the maximum skill ranks for cross classed skills unless they are class skills for another class you possess.

    Improved Weapon Proficiencies: At 5th level a Freelancer learns how to pick up weapons more easily. Passive abilities which only grant weapon proficiencies (as opposed to those like Katana Mastery which grants additional abilities as well) cost 1 less slot to equip minimum 1. At 13th level this ability improves further and these abilities now cost 2 less slots (minimum 1).

    Water Crystal Jobs: At 6th level a Freelancer gains access to Water Crystal Jobs which are: Chemist, Dragoon, Red Mage, Summoner, Time Mage, and Viking.

    Re-Assign Passives: Beginning at 8th level a Freelancer may 1/day re-assign the Passive Abilities they have equipped in their jobless state by spending 5 minutes in concentration. Beginning at 16th level a Freelancer may use this ability twice per day.

    Fire Crystal Jobs: Beginning at 10th level a Freelancer gains access to the Fire Crystal Jobs which are: Dark Knight, Hunter, Mystic Knight, Ninja, Performer, and Samurai.

    Improved Skill Passives: Beginning at 12th level Skill passives cost 1 less slot (minimum 1) to equip.

    Earth Crystal Jobs: Beginning at 14th level a Freelancer gains access to the Earth Crystal Jobs which are: Arcanist, Conjurer, Devout, and Holy Knight.

    Onion Knight (Ex): At 20th level a Freelancer must choose to become an Onion Knight or a Mime. If they select Onion Knight they gain this ability gaining a +1 bonus to all abilities per 2 jobs they have at Job level 10.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Mime (Su): At 20th level a Freelancer must choose to become an Onion Knight or a Mime. If they select Mime then 1/encounter (or 10 minutes outside of combat) a Freelancer may mimic the action of another creature within their (aura) that was taken since the end of the Freelancer's last turn. They take that action immediately as if they were the original user using the other creature's stats for all purposes. If that action had an XP cost they must still pay it but need not expend material components. They may choose new targets for the action and a new location. This takes the same action as the action being mimicked, and a Freelancer may mimic multiple actions taken by the target in the same turn by spending the same amount of actions. If the mimicked action had a duration of longer than 1 minute other than Permanent the Freelancer's copy of it has a duration of 1 minute.

    Shell Split (Ex): On any attack made as part of an attack or full attack action (but not a command or other ability that makes an attack as a standard or full round action such as a martial maneuver) you may pay MP 8 MP.

    Provoke (Su): As a standard action you may single out a target within 20-ft per job level hurling fighting words and concentrated fighting spirit at them. The target must make Will save or attack you in preference to all other targets for 1 round per job level; if the target may include you in an area of effect attack it must do so (beneficial AoEs are still acceptable not to target you) and the target may not attack other creatures if it could attack you without provoking attacks of opportunity or moving through damaging terrain even if this requires it to move to attack you or draw a sheathed ranged weapon, you must be within its ability to move to attack you. This is a mind-affecting effect, but may affect mindless living creatures despite type based immunities and being mindless as it plays on their instinctual fight response. A mindless creature affected by this must attack you for the duration and may take no action not related to attacking you nor may they attack other creatures even if reaching you to attack you would deal damage to them, provoke attacks of opportunity, or is completely impossible.

    7th:
    Defang (Ex): On any attack made as part of an attack or full attack action (but not a command or other ability that makes an attack as a standard or full round action such as a martial maneuver) you may pay MP 12 MP.

This berserker rage lasts 3 + Con modifier rounds. This berserk state does not end mind-affecting effects already upon you but does suppress their effects for the duration.
    9th:
    Hurt (Ex): As a standard action you may make a single attack which deals increased damage based upon your current hit points, your impervious status granting you greater furor. This attack deals quadruple damage if you are at maximum hp, triple if you have at least 75% of your maximum hit points, double if you have at least half of your maximum hit points, and normal damage if you are at less than half hit points.

    Command - Sword Magic

    Sword Magic spells follow a few special rules that apply to all of them. When you cast a sword magic spell choose one weapon you are wielding. For the next 5 rounds the first time each round that you successfully strike a target with that weapon the spell goes off on that target; if you make an attack out of turn (such as with an immediate action or an attack of opportunity) it counts as your next turn's use of the spell. You gain a +2 to any checks made to overcome spell resistance and ignore Spell Turning or Reflect with Sword Magic spells and targets suffer a -2 penalty to their saving throw. If you score a critical hit with an attack augmented by a sword magic spell this bonus to checks made to overcome spell resistance and penalty to saving throws are multiplied by the same amount as the damage from the weapon attack is. If the threat roll's unmodified result is within your critical threat range the target instead gets no saving throw.

    Unless otherwise noted a Sword Magic spell costs three times the normal MP cost of the spell when used as a Black (or White) Magic effect, and functions as the single target version of that effect.

You may only activate 1 Draw Art each time you draw a weapon, and may activate no more than 1/round as a free action though you may activate multiple if you spend actual actions and have the sheathed swords to do so; if you draw a weapon outside of your turn (such as to make an attack of opportunity with Lightning Draw below) then it counts as your free action activation for the next round. As they are powered by the hostility between you and your enemies they have no effect unless there is an enemy within your (aura). Unless otherwise specified a Draw Art ability is used as part of the action of drawing the katana or wakizashi, although most have an additional effect if you spend a standard action instead of the normal action to do so. You may not combine standard action Draw Arts with other abilities which cause you to draw a weapon as a standard action (such as Zantetsu).

    1st:
    Spirit Blade (Su) [Draw Art]: Enemies within (aura) take 1d6 damage per 2 job levels with a Fortitude save (DC 10 + job level + Cha modifier) for half damage. If drawn as a standard action they instead take 1d6 damage per job level; Fort save still halves.
    2nd:
    Blade Bash (Ex): As a standard action you may make a melee attack which deals ½ the normal damage and all damage dealt is nonlethal. If you hit the target they must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + job level + Strength or Dexterity modifier) or be dazed for 1 round.
    3rd:
    Momentum (Ex): As a full-round action you may make a full attack. Whenever you drop an enemy (as defined in Cleave) you may move up to 10 ft and then make a bonus attack (as if with Great Cleave). You gain a bonus to damage on attacks made as part of this action equal to the number of enemies you have dropped since the beginning of your turn.
    4th:
    Purifying Breeze (Su) [Draw Art]: Allies within (aura) gain a morale bonus to AC and saves equal to ½ your job level for 1 round. If drawn as a standard action this bonus instead lasts 1 round/job level.
    5th:
    Zantetsu (Ex): As a standard action you may draw a sheathed katana or wakizashi and make a melee attack with it. In addition to the normal effects of a melee attack if the target has less than 50% of their max health before the damage they must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + Job level + Str or Dex mod) or die, this is a death effect.
    6th:
    Sanguine Blossom (Su) [Draw Art]: Enemies within (aura) take 1d6 damage per 2 job levels, a Fortitude save (DC 10 + job level + Cha modifier) halves this damage. If drawn as a standard action the damage increases to 1d6 per job level, but a Fort save still halves this damage. You gain temp hp for 10 minutes equal to most damage dealt to any single creature with this ability.
    7th:
    Cloudsea Curse (Su) [Draw Art]: Enemies within (aura) must make a Will save or be slowed for 1 round and suffer 1d4 Dexterity damage. If you drew it as a standard action they are slowed for 1 round/2 job levels and suffer 2d4 Dexterity damage on a failed save. In addition a thin fog fills your aura imposing a -4 penalty on spot checks for 1 round if drawn normally or 1 round/2 job levels if drawn as a standard action.
    8th:
    Ethereal Embrace (Su) [Draw Art]: You gain the benefits of haste and twice your job level in temporary hp for 1 round, or 1 round/job level if drawn as a standard action.
    9th:
    Clean Slate (Su) [Draw Art]: You may draw a katana or wakizashi as an immediate action as part of this ability, this counts as your free action Draw Art for the next round. If used as an immediate action you may make a Reflex save against any spell (or spell-like ability) which is targeting you or including you in its area (if it does not have a save DC use what it would have if it did). On a successful save the spell has no effect on you and/or your space is not included in its area. If drawn as a standard action you may instead make a targeted dispel magic attempt on yourself ignoring any effects you choose.
    10th:
    Shin-Zantetsu (Su): Draw a katana or wakizashi as a standard action and strike at the air. You deal 5d6 damage to enemies within a 60-ft cone and any with less than half health afterwards must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + Job level + Charisma modifier) or die, this is a death effect.

    Default Re: The Final Fantasy Job System in a Class: Freelancer

    "Forbidden" Jobs


    Forbidden Jobs are those jobs which due to quirks of their design do not fit with the others. They may present potential game balance problems, or may simply be things foreign to the Final Fantasy Job system. Regardless they are Jobs which I encourage DMs to look at individually and choose whether they are used. You can either simply add them at their listed tier, or require a player upon gaining a tier of jobs to swap one or more regular jobs for them.

    Limit SOLDIER (Air Crystal Job):
    Spoiler
    Show


    Difficulties: Limit SOLDIER introduces what amounts to a cast from hit points system. There are limits upon it; damage must be taken in combat situations, the amount of hit points required is close to, potentially greater than, your maximum hit points so requires healing, and is usually a really poor exchange rate. On the other hand you can switch to gaining Limit from other sources (dealing damage, killing, using MP). Limit also allows you to use higher level abilities. As such it has the potetial to become quite mechanically problematic. In addition while a Final Fantasy base it is not a Job and is not found in Job system games (although Bravely Default's specials are Limit Breaks and the source of Inspirational Limit Break).

    Command – Limit Break:

    Limit Breaks require the expenditure of 1 or more Limit Bars. To fill a Limit Bar you must have a [Limit] ability equipped which allows you to acquire Limit Points. A Limit Bar is filled when you have obtained 8 Limit Points per character level. You may not have more Limit Points than enough to fill a Limit Bar unless you have a Limit SOLDIER level of 6 or higher at which point you may hold up to 2 Bars. Limit is not loss if you switch to a Job that cannot accrue it, with the exception of any Limit above your normal capacity allowed through the Expanded Limit Capacity passive.
    Limit Break and Additional Costs: When using an ability that has an additional cost such as a color spell modified by the appropriate [Color] Magic Amp or Twin Cast to cast a non-Red Magic spell you must still pay these additional costs. This is also true of the additional MP or HP used to heighten certain spell-like abilities, or similar additional costs. You may pay an extra Limit Bar to pay these additional costs.
    Limit Breaks and Commerce: These are both Forbidden Jobs and as such a pair of variants. I could ignore their interaction or I can account for it. If used with Gil Toss it emulates it at 2d8 damage per Job level, Sorcery of Gold can be used for a spell with a level of up to your Merchant Job level -2, Pay to Play uses the higher cost ability, and Energy Drink grants a Full Round action all at no GP cost. A second Bar can be used to increase Gil Toss damage to 3d8 per Job level, Sorcery of Gold to spell level up to Merchant Job level -1, and 2 full round actions from Energy Drink.
    1st Level:
    Braver (Ex): As a standard action you may expend a Limit Bar to make a single melee attack which deals double damage.

    Command Limit Break – Any: You may expend a Limit Bar to use any Command ability granted by a Command up to the Job level you have in the associated Job even if that Command is not equipped.

    Blade Beam (Su): By expending a Limit Bar as a standard action you release a beam of energy from your blade. This allows you to make a ranged touch attack with a range of up to twice your (aura) which deals double the damage of a weapon attack to the target and then allows you to make a ranged touch attack against each enemy within a distance equal to your (aura) radius of the initial target each of these attacks dealing normal weapon damage.
    7th Level:
    Command Limit Break – Expanded: You may expend an additional Limit Bar when using any Command Limit Break ability to increase the maximum level of ability you may emulate with the ability by 2 (so up to equipped command’s Job level +2 or unequipped command’s Job level +1).
    8th Level:
    Inspirational Limit Break: You may expend an additional Limit Bar when using any Limit Break to produce an inspirational energy throughout your (aura).

If you chose Speed they gain a +30-ft enhancement to speed, a +2 morale bonus to Reflex saves, and a +2 dodge bonus to AC, and a +4 morale bonus to Dexterity.

    Geomancer (Water Crytal Job) Command

    Spoiler
    Show
    Too large to post in one post so in two posts linked above.


    Machinist (Water Crystal Job)
    Spoiler: Machinist
    Show
    Command – Gadgetry
    [Tool] descriptor command abilities act oddly. A Machinist may maintain one of each tool that they have access to through the command via the ‘Maintain Tool’ command ability, or passive. Each [Tool] descriptor command represents a physical gadget or Tool. These tools can be used by anyone, but the Activate Tool command is required to use their ‘activated’ ability. If a tool’s ‘activated’ ability costs MP it is paid by the character activating it. Each [Tool] descriptor command also comes with a raw material price for making the relevant tool (an act which takes 8 hours regardless of price), this is the initial price to create the tool or to replace it if it is lost or destroyed. All tools are Supernatural in nature.

    1st:
    Activate Tool (Su): You may use this command to use the ‘activated’ ability of any Tool you are wielding even one you did not make and are not maintaining. The action required and cost to do so are described in the appropriate tool command below.
    Maintain Tool (Su): You may use this ability to maintain the magical link with a tool which allows the magitek within to function. Creating a link requires a standard action made while touching the tool, though maintaining it requires no action. You may only maintain tools for which you have the relevant tool command and only one of each tool. You may dissolve a link with a maintained tool as a standard action regardless of distance. All tools are Supernatural in nature.

    2nd:
    Debilitator [Tool]: This tool costs 300 GP in raw materials to produce. Standard Use: As a standard action a single creature within 5 ft per job level of the tool’s maintainer must make a Will save (10 + job level + maintainer’s Int) or gain a weakness to an energy type determined randomly (roll 1d6, 1 Acid, 2 Cold, 3 Electricity, 4 Fire, 5 Sonic, 6 re-roll). If the target has immunity to that energy type they lose it and gain resistance 20 to it instead, if they had resistance they simply lose the resistance, if they did not have immunity or resistance they gain vulnerability (taking +50% damage from that energy type), and if they were already vulnerable it increases to +100% damage. This vulnerability lasts for a number of rounds equal to the Job level of the debilitator’s maintainer. Activated Use: As standard use but you may choose which energy type to afflict vulnerability to. You must pay 3 MP to use this ability and once used the Debilitator must recharge over 5 rounds before being used again.

    Pinpoint Aim (Ex): As a standard action you may make a ranged attack as a touch attack. This attack deals +1 damage per Job level and ignore concealment or cover less than total.

    3rd:
    Dark Bullet (Su): As a standard action you may make an attack that deals +1d4 damage per Job level. If the target is hit they must make a Will save (DC 10 + Job level + Dex modifier) or be blinded. At the end of their turn they may attempt to make this save again (this is a free action). They are blinded until they successfully save against this effect. If applied with a melee attack the target gains a +2 on their save(s) against this ability.

    4th:
    Autogun [Tool]: This tool costs 500 GP in raw materials to produce. Standard Use: The autogun may be used to make ranged attacks. It is considered a fire arm for proficiencies. The autogun holds canisters with 40 shots each (such a canister would cost 8 SP to buy the bullets to fill). A canister can be loaded into the autogun as a full round action and the autogun does not otherwise need to be loaded as long as it has shots left in its canister. The autogun deals 1d8 damage + 1d8 per 2 job levels of the maintainer, has a range increment of 20 ft per job level of the maintainer and a 20/x2 crit. Activated Use: Pay 1 MP as a free action as part of firing an autogun to cause it to not fire traditional bullets, but energized pulses of magic. This means it does not require ammunition for the round and it deals your choice of cold, electricity, or fire damage until end of turn.

    Shotgun (Su): As a standard action you may make a ranged attack as an attack in a 30 ft cone. Make a single attack roll and apply its result against each target within the area.

    5th:
    Addling Bullet (Su): As a standard action you may pay 5 MP to make an attack that deals +1d6 damage per Job level. If the target is hit they must make a Will save (DC 10 + Job level + Dex modifier) or be confused; this is a mind-affecting effect. At the end of their turn they may attempt to make this save again (this is a free action). They are blinded until they successfully save against this effect. If applied with a melee attack the target gains a +2 on their save(s) against this ability.

    6th:

    Sound Blaster [Tool]: This tool costs 1000 GP in raw materials to produce. Standard Use: All targets within a 30 ft cone take 1d6 sonic damage per job level of the tool creator. They are allowed a Fortitude save for half (DC 10 + job level + Int mod), and on a failed save are deafened for 1 round; the damage but not the deafness applies to objects and Con – creatures. Deaf creatures are immune to this tool’s effects. Once used the Sound Blaster must recharge requiring either a full round action to manually crank it or 5 rounds before it can be used for either its standard or activated use. Activated Use: All targets (including objects) within a 30 ft cone take 1d8 sonic damage per job level of the tool creator, they are allowed a Fortitude save for half damage. In addition they are confused for 1d4+1 rounds unless they succeed on a Will save (DC 10 + job level + Int modifier). Deaf creatures are immune to this tool’s effects. Once used the Sound Blaster must be recharged requiring either a full round action and 5 MP to manually crank it, or 1 minute before it can be used for either its standard or activated use once more.

    7th:

    Power Shot (Ex): As a standard action you may make an attack which deals +1d6 damage per job level if a melee attack or +2d6 per job level if a ranged attack.

    8th:
    Flash Grenade [Tool]: This tool costs 500 GP in raw materials to produce. Standard Use: The flash grenade is used as a thrown grenade-like weapon. It does not have any special damage on a direct hit or ‘splash’ instead when thrown releasing a burst of light where it hits. All creatures within a 20 ft radius must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + job level + Int modifier) or be blinded for 1d4+1 rounds. Once used the flash grenade must be exposed to bright light for 1 minute to recharge, although the maintainer may pay 10 MP to recharge it as a move action while holding it. It must also be manually recovered. Activated Use: You may pay 10 MP while using the Flash Grenade to add 1d8 damage per job level to its standard effect (successful save against blindness halves damage), creatures with Light Sensitivity, Light Blindness, the undead type, or otherwise vulnerable to light or sunlight take double damage from this effect.

    9th:
    Bio Blaster [Tool]: This tool costs 1000 GP in raw materials to produce. Standard Use: Creatures within a 30 ft cone must make a Fortitude save or take 1d6 Constitution damage and take damage equal to the maintainer’s job level each round until they succeed on a Fortitude save (allowed at the end of each turn). This is considered poison, a creature immune to poison is immune to this effect and saving throw bonuses against poison apply. Activated Use: As standard use but deals 2d6 Constitution damage and ongoing damage is 1d4 per job level. Once the activated use is used the tool cannot be used again for 5 rounds or until it is recharged as a standard action which costs 7 MP.

    10th:
    Stop Bullet: As a standard action you may pay 15 MP to make an attack that deals +1d6 damage per Job level. If the target is hit they must make a Will save (DC 10 + Job level + Dex modifier) or be stopped , effectively held (as if with hold monster) but unable to take mental actions; a Freedom of Movement effect prevents this ability. At the end of their turn they may attempt to make this save again. They are stopped until they successfully save against this effect. If applied with a melee attack the target gains a +2 on their save(s) against this ability.

    Merchant (Water Crystal Job)
    Spoiler
    Show

    Difficulty: Merchant is built on PG shenanigans, or in D&D terms WBL. Where in Final Fantasy gold is mostly useless and having a job that uses it as a resource make it an interesting tactical resource for a change, in D&D money is power. As such spending it for minor effects (Takeover) or getting extra is a powerful and potentially destabilizing effect. I also tried to avoid giving Jobs abilities which are used in downtime beyond Craft/Perform/Profession or which empower on a long term scale so that you can enter the job to gain the benefit and then change it and maintain the benefit for the rest of the day or days at a time (which led to the no downtime rule). Merchant, by its nature, breaks that rule.

    Command - Commerce
    1st:
    Gil Toss (Su): As a standard action you can toss coinage transmuting them into damaging energy. You deal Xd8 damage where X is a number of your choice up to 3 times your Job level with a ranged touch attack. However you must pay 10*(X^2) gold hit or miss.
    2nd:
    No ability gained.
    3rd:
    Sorcery of Gold (Sp): By spending an amount of time equal to its casting time you may immediately use any spell with a spell level less than your job level as a spell-like ability but you must pay gold equal to twice the cost of a scroll of that spell.
    4th:
    Hedge Risk (Su): As an immediate action you convert damage to your body into damage to that highest of all things your finances. For 1 round whenever you would take damage instead lose 3 GP worth of coins or trade goods carried upon your person per hp which would be loss. If you have no capital of this sort on you then you lose hit points as normal.
    5th:
    Pay to Play (Su): As a standard action you may pay 50 GP to double a creature’s threat range for 1 minute, this does not stack with Keen or Improved Critical unless you pay 500 GP.
    6th:
    Astral Shop (Su): As a full round action you may send your spirit back to the last shop you visited. Your body remains in place and is considered helpless. You may exchange goods in this shop in legitimate transactions but no other objects can be lost or gained and you may not affect the place in any other material ways. You may return to your body as a move action or by leaving the shop.
    7th:
    Energy Drink (Su): As a standard action you may convert gold into pure elan vitalizing an ally into action. Select one ally within your aura and then sacrifice an amount of carried coinage or trade goods. If you sacrifice 100 GP of goods that ally may immediately take a swift action. By sacrificing 400 GP of goods they may take a standard action. 1,600 GP obtains a full-round action or a standard and move action (no swift) and may be worth using on yourself in extreme circumstances. 16,000 GP grants the ally two full-round actions (or 2 standard and 2 move) and 1 swift action to be used immediately.
    8th:
    High Leverage (Su): As a standard action you increase the leverage of power in a region making battle more brutal and swift. For three rounds all damage dealt to, or hp paid by, creatures within 1000-ft is doubled.
    9th:
    Low Leverage (Su): As a standard action you decrease the leverage of power in a region making battle longer and more defensive. For three rounds all damage dealt to, or hp paid by, creatures within 1000-ft is halved.
    10th:
    Greater Sorcery of Gold (Sp): You now need only pay the cost of a scroll instead of twice that when using Sorcery of Gold.

    Inherent Abilities:
    Perfected Will
    Simple Weapon Proficiencies
    Medium Armor Proficiency
    Shield Proficiency

    Merchant Passives:
    1st:
    Merchant Skills: Appraise, Bluff, Diplomacy, and Sense Motive. Costs 3 slots.
    2nd:

    Acolyte of the Tonberry (Fire Crystal Job)
    Spoiler
    Show


    Difficulty: This is based upon a specific FF monster and its abilities which do not mesh well with tactical combat, and despite that is based more upon the main line games instead of the Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced version. Also it is spawned from the fact that due to FFXI's design I am convinced that Tonberries are from Innsmouth and actually just the FF name for Deep One Hybrid.

    Command - Knife Arts

    Knife Arts abilities cannot be used during a turn in which you use a Move action to move unless you used Implacable Stalker to move or moved no more than 1/2 your speed. Knife Arts that allow you to make an attack can only be used with a knife, dagger, shortsword, punching dagger, kukri, or other dagger/knife weapon as deemed appropriate by the DM and only to make melee attacks.

    1st:
    Cleaver (Ex): As a standard action you may pay 4 MP to make a single melee attack with an appropriate weapon. This attack is resolved as a touch attack which ignores damage reduction.

    2nd:


    3rd:
    Implacable Stalker (Su): As a move action select a non-mindless enemy, you move to where you are 10-ft closer to them (up to adjacent) than you were at the end of your last turn. This is a teleportation effect although you appear to be walking in truth you pass through their nightmares.

    4th:
    Knife (Ex): As a standard action pay 5 + your Job level MP eand make a single melee attack which has its damage multiplied by 1/2 your Job level.

    5th:
    Approaching Terror (Su): When you use Implacable Stalker or a Move action to move no more than 1/2 your speed a single creature you move towards must make a Will save (DC 10 + Job level + Charisma modifier) or be immobilized with fear and unable to move from their current square for 1 round (flying creatures with average or worse maneuverability will fall). This is a mind-affecting fear effect. If triggered through Implacable Stalker you must target the same creature with both.

    6th:
    Karma (Su): As a standard action you may pay 12 MP and make a melee touch attack against a creature. That creature immediately takes damage equal to the amount of damage it has dealt this encounter.

    7th:
    Traveler (Su): As a standard action you may pay 12 MP and cause target creature within your (aura) to take 1d4 damage per 5-ft it has moved during this encounter. A Fortitude save (DC 10 + Job level + Charisma modifier) is allowed for half damage.

    8th:
    Mass Terror (Su): When Approaching Terror activates you do not target a creature, instead each creature which you end your movement closer to are affected.

    9th:
    Everybody's Grudge (Su): With a glance you invoke the powers of the slain. As a standard action you may pay 16 MP to target a single creature within your (aura). That target must make a Fort save or die immediately if they have ever killed anything (this is a death effect). On a successful save they take 5 damage per creature they have slain today.

    10th:
    Frenzied Cleaver (Ex): As a full-round action you may pay 13 MP to make a single melee attack with an appropriate weapon. This attack is resolved as a touch attack which ignores damage reduction.

    2nd level:

    Combat Skill.

    Tonberry's Lantern (Su): As a standard action you may form a lit hooded lantern in an open hand. This lantern produces no heat and is purely an illusory existence but provides illumination as normal. If you ever release the lantern it vanishes immediately though you may reform it again as a standard action. The light produced by this illusory lantern is equivalent to a 2nd level spell.

This feat has additional benefits over its normal equivalent (Spell Focus) because of the heavy emphasis on blasting or healing that Color Magic has (compare to a Dread Necromancer, Beguiler, or a mage who would actually take Spell Focus all have more save or X in a single school than any single type of Color Magic).

    Class Variants


    "Boundlancer"


    Really more of a batch of several hundred, possibly eventually reaching over a thousand, "build a class", the "Boundlancer" is the final option mentioned in the adaptation section. To create a "Boundlancer" select 2 Jobs from any tier. You do not gain any Freelancer class features except the aura and maximum Job level. Instead you gain all inherent abilities of both jobs, all passive abilities of both jobs up to your maximum Job level, and all command abilities of both jobs up to your maximum Job level. Your Job level in both jobs is always treated as your maximum Job level.

    You gain class skills based upon your selected jobs, these are in addition to those from the Freelancer class. In addition any [Job] Skills ability is modified; you gain true skill ranks instead of virtual ranks and if this would push you over your max ranks you may reassign the excess ranks into skills as you desire (paying double for cross-class ranks as usual). If both jobs grant 3 or more of the same class skill you may select 1 additional class skill which may be any skill for each 3 identical skills.

    Class Skills by Job:

    If both selected Jobs grant you Combat Mastery then your inherent MP growth improves one step (to a maximum of Quickest); if Combat Mastery is a passive and not an inherent of either Job you only gain this once both Jobs would grant you Combat Mastery. If both Jobs grant at least Medium MP growth you gain 1 step improved MP growth, if both grant at least Quick MP growth you gain Quickest+.

    A "Boundlancer" uses the following MP growth table instead of that of a Freelancer. Currently it is the same except that it includes Quickest and Quickest+ at lower levels. However it will liably become different if I overhaul the MP costs/values.

    "Boundlancers" will find many of the Freelancer feats utterly useless to them, and "Boundlancer" levels are not considered the same as Freelancer levels for prerequisites. There are certain feats for "Boundlancers" which enable limited access to a third job and fill this void.

    Spoiler: Feats
    Show

    Command Adept
    You have greater access to a third command giving you its full range of attack forms.
    Prerequisites: Boundlancer level 9+, Command Dabbler.
    Benefit: You gain full access to the command chosen with Command Dabbler using your full job level for it.

    Command Dabbler:
    You have limited access to a third command, giving you a greater range of attack forms.
    Prerequisites: Boundlancer level 3+.
    Benefit: Select 1 Job. You gain access to its Command. You use your Maximum Job level as your Job level for determining DCs and the power of individual abilities, however you only unlock access to abilities up to 1/2 your Maximum Job level (for example if you chose the Leap command and had a Boundlancer level of 19 giving you max Job level 10 you would gain access to Combat Leap, Fire Breath, Cold Breath, Lightning Breath, Falling Blow, Sweeping Blow, and Lancet abilities, and would deal 10d6 damage with the three breath abilities and a DC of 20 + Con; you would not however gain Mighty Leap or the abilities of Job level 6+).

    Job Dabbler:
    You have obtained some of the skills of another job granting you one of its passive abilities.
    Prerequisites: Boundlancer level 3+.
    Benefit: Choose one passive ability which costs 4 or less slots available to any Job at a Job level lower than your maximum Job level. You gain that passive ability.

    And I declare this thread fully open.

    Blue Magic is not represented Even in the form of Vampire from Bravely Default.

    Geomancer is not represented, might be added soon.

    Any questions, requests, comments are welcome. Constructive criticism especially since the class has issues, some of them inherent in the core design concept (which a dialogue about might help others build new things) some of them more unique to my choices and designs.

    The biggest one that I can see realistically fixing is math on MP. As it is they get too much MP relative to their abilities because it allows them to play the full caster (even if one that is hopefully merely tier 3/4 like DN, Beguiler, and Warmage) and have full spells per day for a sorcerer and then when out of MP play the melee tank. That said I'm not sure if that is a problem in a party with tier 1/2 casters but it is a thing and I might even want a lower or higher power variant which is simply more MP.

    Either way it's posted. It's a thing. It's out there and people can comment if they wish.

    Spoiler: Rant
    Show
    As a whole, though, I hate this class. Ok, hate is too strong a word... Ok there is a part of me that does hate it because it was far more effort than I initially expected and I sort of just ran out of steam. But that's irrational, and unreasonable of me. That is not a reason to hate the finished results. Even so there are legitimate reasons I dislike it.

    The first, the big one, is that it just doesn't work as a class. It is like a Binder on steroids, to emphasize this I might eventually make a Binder Job as a Fire Crystal Forbidden Job. It allows you to be, something like 5 different classes a day. The total amount of casting you can access in a day is only that of a sorcerer, and the amount of spell versatility hopefully places you on par with a Fixed List caster or some sort of Warmage-Healer hybrid. But this still makes you a gestalt Warmage-Healer that can go "I'm a warblade now" and "oh we need a skill monkey, I've got ya". It might only be high tier 3 in power if I'm lucky. But it is not really a class. It doesn't fit with classes. It is in itself a replacement for the class system.

    The reason for this is obvious, and one Square (soft or Enix) knows very well. Many games use fixed jobs, and many use freelancer/"the Job system", and many use fixed jobs that aren't immediately obvious. They don't mix these things. FFX's sphere grid is the closest using a highly modified version of the Job System to form a Job System coupled with fixed starting spots on the sphere grid to give each character a starting "Job" and character specific limit breaks to cement this. FFVI also comes sort of close by having accessories that give you the iconic ability of a Job. In general, though, the "Job System" is used to replace a fixed Job. In short in its base material a Freelancer is all classes when needed. You can't have characters who are wizards and characters who are able to switch between wizard, cleric, rogue, barbarian, and psion at will without crippling the latter to where it isn't really any of those things (Factotum, Bard, Binder) or making the former obsolete.

    The Freelancer tries to do neither. The fact that it is accessing a pool of classes for the most part separate than those that already exist, with the exception of monk which has already been rendered obsolete in the minds of many, gives it some room to do this. Even so in the end it feels more like something to replace classes than augment them. A game with one Freelancer may find it a disruptive class. But a game could include a whole party of them and find them varied. I have gone on now, I won't say at length, about how this is it's greatest weakness, but I must recognize that this is also its greatest strength. If I had designed Freelancer to be a replacement for the class system I would consider it a great success. However I did not and thus it is my failure.

    If that was the only issue with Freelancer I could actually count myself pleased. I failed but I succeeded at something else. If that was my only problem. It is not. Many of the problems ultimately stem from that coupled with the fact that I burnt out during it. Normally I try and at least check the math of abilities one of many ways, compare to the MM, compare to some simple DMG level barbarian builds, etc. I stopped doing that when I got to jobs that used MP. I stopped doing the math. For MP I pulled from the MP tables in UA. This allowed me to make MP actually compatible with existing spell casting and psionics allowing MP damage to actually be a fully developed thing, which is good, nevertheless this ended up with them getting MP equivalent to a sorcerer's with MP costs equivalent to spells. This is a relatively easy fix that with your help I should eventually manage of actually making the MP costs function. Playtesting will be required; looking at the game math can get it into the right ballpark but it won't guarantee a home run. MP couldn't work quite how it does in the games, regardless, because of the difference between design. D&D runs on a "handful of encounters full rest" model, FF ultimately runs on a much more grind heavy model (which will be my explanation for most changes) where you have oodles of gold, very little functional to spend it on, and end up with enough healing items to spam and battles in which you are expected to die 10 times or more. That is fundamentally different from D&D. And there are many places where this created dissonance.

    The other problem with me having given up on the math is that it was before I assigned slot costs to the passive abilities. I had figured out job levels, that took some doing (traditionally Jobs are just grind for 100% levels in all of them), but I got lazy on passive abilities. So I really don't know how well assigned their costs are. You may also notice Jobs get a whole lot more of them, and you have every right to ask me why. The answer actually relates back to job levels and grinding. In FF it doesn't matter much if Job A is stronger than Job B, you can always go back and fight random encounters to get Job A and fix the fact that you wasted JP on Job B. That isn't how D&D works. Instead I had to avoid making any Job overly niche, or too much of a trap option. This is one reason why Geomancer, which was included in my calculations of Job levels my careful calculations, never got made for the contest (I intend to make it still as a forbidden job) and one of the many reasons for Blue Mage's saddening absence (Blue Mage is simultaneously my favorite and least favorite FF job).

    Of course there will be balance problems throughout. Something this big is in need of playtesting and multiple view points. Besides that since FFV (maybe earlier) a big thing in FF has been finding the broken combo. In V this was mainly for bonus bosses, specifically the Omega Weapon. In VI it exploded into a thing. In the later games it goes back to being mainly for bonus bosses, though Bravely Default brought it to the fore again with... well ok maybe it was just the fact that I turned XP off so much that I was 20 levels lower than FAQs said I should be. Either way in FF it is typically easy to make yourself ludicrously invincible, get infinite mana, heal to full health every other round, and deal max damage constantly. Bosses are given a lot of blanket immunities and health in the hundreds of times max damage or more to compensate, often given multiple forms on top of that. Again this is a fundamental difference between D&D and FF; a turn in D&D takes a lot more real time than one in FF which necessitates this difference. I am unsure of how well I handled this. I tried to leave in the ability to create fun and awesome synergies, but you will notice that the truly broken combos are heavily nerfed or removed (coming off Bravely Default when making this I am mainly looking at Merchant's Low/High Leverage abilities, and Stillness). Even so I tried to make it so that it could play at a variety of optimization levels, and that you would never be forced to optimize above your level or below it.

    That said many of my problems ultimately come from having tried to make it do too much for a class. Hopefully, you, however will find it enjoyable and find many options which you can use in your own games. I could explain why I made certain decisions that I did, and ultimately each such decision will indicate something I felt I was compromising on. With color magic I made it 8 levels like it was in the very earliest FF games instead of 6 like it was when the Job system got into full development because it was easier to balance against regular spellcasting's 9 level system. While I could have copied Bardic progression for a 6 level system White and Black Magic spells were clearly more powerful than Bardic and often even just a strict adaptation would put them on a more varied power level. The 8 level system allowed me to merely skip a single spell level's growth, most noticeable and painful in Black Mage, and create an analog. Which is appropriate in that it was originally an analog for (A)D&D's way back ere 2e was a thing. I went with MP over the early games' (sorcerer) vancian system, though, because it was more iconic of FF and ultimately was required to adapt Jobs other than casters since most jobs eventually developed use of MP in FF; it evolved from the vancian system into something different.

    Viking was a combination of the Viking, Berserker, and Pirate Jobs because all were linked (all three got rage for example) and none of the three got enough on their own to justify by themselves. In fact Pirate only exists in Bravely Default but matches up almost perfectly to Viking being in effect a reskinning of it with bits of Berserker thrown in. So why did I choose Viking? Because vikings are cooler than pirates and I could through in more variety of drinking references.

    Ok I'm not going through each Job individually. Bravely Default was probably the biggest source of abilities, being the biggest model for the class, and in some ways the hardest to adapt due to the use of Brave Points. FF Tactics was another big one, especially for movement related abilities and Samurai. FFV, being the sort of codifier for the Job system, was of course included and despite having never played it X-2 got pilfered from as well. And I think this rant is winding down so if it's alright with you all I will stop here and hope you enjoy the class.

    Default Re: The Final Fantasy Job System in a Class: Freelancer

    Geomancer (Water Crystal [Forbidden] Job)

    This job was too big to fit in a post so gets its own two posts below. Due to space constraints the command ability is in the next post with Inherents and Passives coming first.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Difficulty: Geomancer seems to provide Square with difficulty already as it is missing from FFTA, FFX-2 (art above is concept art for when it was considered) and Bravely Default. It provides additional difficulty in that it is Job that normally uses randomized actions; you spend your attack to do some random attack based on the area terrain type/dungeon you are fighting in. In the Tactics games (Tactics and A2 in this case) it functions somewhat differently with the attack being non-random and based upon the specific square you are standing in's terrain or the current weather in A2. This divide between the two games and the random attacks is ultimately no worse, and in fact a lighter, issue than Performer or Viking gave me.

    The significant problem is that it is at-will magical effects based upon your current terrain. This means that a Geomancer's power is highly variable based upon a DM's dungeon design. While I did my best to keep all the options relatively balanced it is still a more interesting option if your DM uses a variety of wilderness encounters and gets rather boring with dungeon after dungeon (because you'll end up with underground terrain). The Feature ability alleviates this somewhat, and I'd be willing to expand upon it based upon suggestions, but the Feature ability is itself problematic. It forces the DM to consider more carefully what sort of otherwise incidental to combat terrain features go in the room. Is there a bookcase? What about a window? An unholy altar? A tree? All of these increase a Geomancer's power by at the least giving them more combat options. It is because of this, that a Geomancer makes the DM have to consider what terrain is in the game more carefully both to ensure it is useful and ensure it is not too useful that makes it a Forbidden Job.

    Lv 7:
    Counter Flood (Counter): When you are hit by an attack you may expend an attack of opportunity to use a special Geomancy ability that targets only the creature that attacked you. The Geomancy used this way cannot select features even if they are available.

    Basic Terrain:
    Forest - Reflexive Spear: A wooden spear forms from the terrain and launches at the target if they are within 400 ft. This is a ranged attack which deals 1d8 piercing damage + 1d8 damage per job level.
    Marsh - Acid Spout: A squirt of acid extends from your hand towards the target out to a range of 60 ft. This is a ranged touch attack which deals 1d6 acid damage per job level, and the target must make a Reflex save to avoid being blinded for 1 round if they have eyes.
    Hills - Earth Magnet: Your attacker must make a Will save or fall prone; if flying fall to the ground prone taking falling damage as appropriate (if more than 300 ft up may spend multiple rounds falling). This has a 100 ft range.
    Mountain - Shardblast: You send a shard of rock flying at your assailant out to 100 ft. This is a ranged attack which deals 1d8 slashing and piercing damage + 1d8 per job level. The target then continues to take 1 damage/round until healed.
    Desert - Focused Heat: You focus the desert's dry heat on you assailant if they are within 60 ft. This deals 1d6 desiccation damage per job level and they are fatigued for 1 round/job level. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the fatigue.
    Plains - Wind of Retribution: You send a supersonic wind back past your assailant within 100 ft. This deals sonic damage to the target equal to the damage you received from triggering attack. A Fortitude save halves this damage.
    Aquatic - Reflexive Torrent: You create a sphere of pressurized water which shoots at your assailant out to 30 ft. This is a ranged attack which deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 per Job level. The target must make a Strength check to resist a bull rush (DC 13 + Charisma modifier) or be pushed back 10 ft directly away from you.
    Underground - Shadow Bat: You create a bat (winged animal not a stick) made of pure Force and launch it at your assailant. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 100 ft which deals 1d6 force damage per job level with a hit.

    Advanced Terrain:
    Urban - Ostracize: Rubbish and refuse fly out to strike at the target within 60 ft with a ranged touch attack dealing 1d6 city damage per level. If the target is not an inhabitant of the region they must make a Will save or be shaken for 1 round per 2 job levels.
    Road - Quickfoot: You use the power of the road to move swiftly moving up to your speed; this is an exception to targeting your assailant.
    Roof - Wind Shove: You conjure the wind using it to shove your foe. This is a ranged touch attack with a 30 ft range which deals 1d6 bludgeoning damage per job level and the target must make a Strength check to resist a bull rush (DC 15 + your Charisma modifier) or be pushed back 10 ft.
    Ship - Reflexive Torrent: A sphere of pressurized water shoots at foe. This is a ranged attack with a 60 ft range which deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 per Job level, and the target must make a Strength check to resist a bull rush (DC 15 + your Charisma modifier) or be pushed back 10 ft.
    Aerial - Thunderclap: Target within 100 ft takes 1d6 sonic damage per job level and is deafened for 1 round per job level. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and reduces deafened to 1 round.
    Barren - Blight Life: Target within 100 ft takes 1d6 negative energy damage per job level (does not heal creatures healed by negative energy) as you sever their connection to life force and they cannot regain hit points for 1 minute. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and allows them to heal normally.
    River - Reflexive Torrent: A sphere of pressurized water shoots at foe. This is a ranged attack with a 60 ft range which deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 per Job level, and the target must make a Strength check to resist a bull rush (DC 15 + your Charisma modifier) or be pushed back 10 ft. Costs 6 slots.


    Planar Terrain:
    Law - Cease and Desist: You impose law upon your foe out to 400 ft. The enemy must make a Will save or immediately end their turn. This is a mind-affecting effect.
    Chaos - Primal Scorcher: You release a ray of roiling chaotic elements back at your assailant. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 100 ft which deals 1d6 damage per job level, this damage is whatever energy type is most effective on the target.
    Good - Pacify: A feeling of peace descends upon your assailant if they are within 60 ft. They must make a Will save or be unable to make any attacks or hostile actions until the end of their next turn or until they are attacked. This is a mind-affecting effect.
    Evil - Steal Hope: You drain hope for success from your foe if they are within 60 ft. The target must make a Will save or be shaken for 1 round/job level. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.
    Fire - Heat Drain: You use the geomantic properties of the plane to pull the heat back out of your foe. The target, if within 60 ft, takes 1d6 cold damage per job level. A successful Will save halves.
    Air - Sonic Cutter: You release a scything blade of sound towards your assailant out to 100 ft. This is a ranged touch attack which deals 1d6 sonic damage per job level, and has a 18-20/x2 critical threat range.
    Earth - Inertia: You drain the power to move from your assailant. If they are within 30 ft they suffer 1d6 Dexterity damage. A successful Fortitude save negates this effect.
    Water - Wash Away: You attempt to dissolve your assailant into the waters of the plane dispersing them as so much pollution. The target, if within 30 ft, must make both a Fort and Will save. If they fail either they suffer 1d4 Constitution damage. If they fail both they are eroded away into nothing.
    Negative - Essence Drain: You turn the negative life force of the plane onto your assailant pushing it into their soul. The target, if within 100 ft, suffers 2 negative levels, Fort halves. These negative levels last only 10 minutes and never result in permanent level loss.
    Positive - Retributive Recuperation: You lash out with positive energy causing it to bombard the target out to 400 ft. The target gains 1d6 hp per job level. If this would cause a creature to regain more hit points than their maximum hit points they gain the excess as temporary hit points which last for as long as they are on a Positive dominant plane. If this causes the target to have more temporary hit points than their maximum hit points they must make a Fortitude save or die immediately. This is a positive energy effect and thus damages undead instead of healing them.
    Transitive (Ethereal or Astral) - Soul Slash: You slash at the core of your target's self, a slicing blade of pure ego which strikes out up to 60 ft away. The target suffers 1d8 Charisma damage unless they succeed on a Will save to negate.
    Shadow - Steal Sight: You invoke darkness on your assailant if they are within 60 ft. The target must make a Fortitude save or go blind for Job level rounds as you steal their sight with the darkness adding it to your own, if they fail you gain a Job bonus to Search and Spot equal to your Job level.

    Lv 8:
    Greater Terrain Sense (Su): This functions as Terrain Sense but it has a range of 10 miles per Geomancer Job level and does not detect Features. It also tells you approximately how many miles to any given terrain type and the direction. Costs 4 slots.

    Lv 9:
    Perfect Stride (Su): You ignore terrain based impediments, including magical ones as if with a Freedom of Movement except that it has no effect on grapple checks. Costs 4 slots.

    Lv 10:
    Geolingual (Su): You are able to talk to plants as if with Speak with Plants and with stones and the ground as if with Stone Tell. Costs 5 slots.

    Default Re: The Final Fantasy Job System in a Class: Freelancer

    Command - Geomancy (Geomancer command)

    Spoiler
    Show
    General Notes:

    All Geomancy abilities are Supernatural and require a Standard action unless noted otherwise. All saving throw DCs are 10 + Job level + Charisma modifier.

    Geomancy and Resistance: Each Geomancy ability deals damage of a certain type. Either an energy type, Force, Negative/Positive Energy, Desiccation, Bludgeoning, Slashing, Piercing, City, or untyped. If it deals a type of damage it is resisted by what normally resists that type of damage (if anything), meaning untyped is generally irresistible, and that if it deals Slashing, Piercing, or Bludgeoning damage it is resisted by Damage Reduction. In this case it overcomes DR as if Magic and Adamantine.

    Geomancy and Feats: You may take Weapon Focus, Weapon Specialization, and Improved Critical in Geomancy as if it were a type of weapon like spell, if you do the feat applies to all Geomancy abilities that require an attack roll even those which cause a tree, compelled creature, or summoned creature to attack. Ability Focus (Geomancy) applies to all Geomancy abilities.

    Geomancy and Attacks of Opportunity: Many Geomancy abilities perform ranged attacks. A Geomancy ability which consists of a ranged attack does not provoke attacks of opportunity from the target, or at all if used as part of Counter Flood.

    Geomancy and Targeting Your Own Square: If you include your square in a Geomancy's area of effect you do not suffer any immediate negative side effects but if it leaves a lingering change to the terrain such as a cloud of solid fog or difficult terrain you must deal with it as normal.

    1st Level:
    Basic Terrain: As a standard action you may call upon the Geomantic forces of the surrounding environment. Depending upon what Environment you are in (as determined by the DM) you can use one of the following abilities. If you are in a region that has been urbanized to the extent that the natural environment is unnoticeable (usually small town or larger) it cannot provide power for this ability. These environments are the same as those for monsters defined in the DMG and MM. Aquatic only applies in a watery area capable of supporting medium sized inhabitants. If inside a building that is not in a region of heavy urbanization use the exterior Environment, or Underground if in a basement. In any extensive subterranean network, such as catacombs, suspiciously spacious sewers, or a 4 story basement, regardless of urbanization level use Underground. It is possible for a region to have more than one applicable environment, a forested hill, for example in which case either ability can be used. You must be touching or adjacent to the relevant terrain type, i.e. being on the beach does not place you in the aquatic environment, and if you are flying you are unable to use any Basic Terrain Geomancy abilities although Forest Terrain is considered to reach up to the canopy and Underground Terrain stretches up to the roof of the cave.

    Forest - Branch Spear: Wooden spear forms from the terrain and launches at a target within 400 ft per job level. This requires a ranged attack rolls and deals 1d8 piercing damage + 1d8 damage per job level on a hit.
    Marsh - Acid Wave: You release a wave of acid from the terrain around you. This takes the form of a 30-ft con and deals 1d6 acid damage per job level. A successful Reflex save halves the damage.
    Hills - Ground Wave: You generate a wave of energy in the ground. This is released in a 30-ft cone which moves only through the ground. It deals 1d6 untyped damage per job level to any creature on the ground or burrowing within it and pushes targets back to the edge of the cone directly away from you; this push is stopped without damage if they collide with another creature (move creatures that are already furthest from you first). A successful Reflex save negates the damage and the push effect.
    Mountain - Rock Crash: You call forth a hurtling rock from the surrounding mountainside. This takes the form of a ranged attack with a range of 30 ft which deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 per job level. A hit creature must make a Fortitude save or only have a single one of Standard, Move, or Swift Action during their next turn.
    Desert - Wind Slash: A scything blade of wind launches at target within 400 ft. This requires a ranged touch attack and deals 1d6 slashing damage + 1d6 slashing damage per job level.
    Plains - Hell Ivy: Tendrils of ivy rise up and grasp at your foe. These tendrils deal 1d6 bludgeoning damage per job level to one target within 60 ft and entangle them until they succeed at a Strength check (DC 10 + your Charisma modifier) as a Standard action or the vines are hacked away (AC 10 + your Charisma modifier, 6 hp per job level). While entangled this way the target cannot move more than 10 ft from the square they were entangled in. A successful Reflex save halves the damage and causes them to be entangled for only 1 round and not prevented from moving more than 10 ft from their initial square.
    Aquatic - Torrent: Sphere of pressurized water shoots at foe. This requires a ranged attack with a range of 60 ft which deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 per Job level. In addition the target must make a Strength check as if resisting a Bull Rush attempt against a DC of 10 + your Charisma modifier or be pushed back 10 ft.
    Underground - Stalactite: You cause a stalactite to form in the cave roof and fall. This deals 1d6 piercing damage per job level in a 5 ft diameter 300 ft tall cylinder within 90 ft. All targets are allowed a Reflex save for half.

    2nd Level:
    Advanced Terrain: You gain the ability to draw energy from a variety of additional terrain types. Some of these terrain types are more limited in scope than Basic Terrains. Urban indicates any area urbanized to the extent that it no longer is considered a Basic Terrain due to it, or any Small Town or larger settlement; this includes underground segments and reaches up to the top of the highest building in the settlement. Roof indicates the top of a building, this includes standing atop battlements as well as a traditional roof. Road applies only to maintained paths created by sentient creatures for their use, incidental paths are not considered roads, only those intentionally designed for the purpose of transit and must be at least a road as defined in chapter 9 of the Player's Handbook.. Ship applies to any type of ship or submarine, this includes air ships and even spelljamming vessels where appropriate. Aerial applies any time the Geomancer is flying, riding a flying mount, or otherwise airborne. Barren applies in any area not capable of supporting a healthy ecosystem such as the Mournlands of Eberron, magically desolated wastelands, and many parts of Mechanus. River should be self explanatory, in that it is a water channel not an ocean with a noticeable flow.

    Urban - Encase in Filth: Trash, rubbish, and refuse coalesces around a target within 60 ft. The target takes 1d6 city damage per job level, and must make a Will save or be Shaken for 1 round.
    Road - Murkgrasp: Calling upon geomantic energies you transform a 10 ft radius burst of ground within 60 ft into acidic sludge. Creatures standing in it when this ability is used take 1d6 acid damage per 2 job levels, Reflex halves. This area remains acidic sludge for 1 round/job level. This is extremely difficult terrain and it requires 4 squares of movement to move out of each square of sludge and any creature moving out of a square of sludge takes 1d6 acid damage.
    Roof - Tile Sniper: You create a tile from small amounts of the surface of the roof around you and launch it at a target. This is a ranged attack with a range limited only by the curvature of the planet you are on and your line of effect and deals 1d8 bludgeoning damage + 1d8 damage per job level.
    Ship - Crashing Wave: You generate waves to strike out against foes within the range of your (aura). You may have a wave strike at each enemy within this range. These waves function as a ranged attack all using the same attack roll and deal 1d8 bludgeoning damage per job level and any struck enemy is pushed 5 ft in the direction of your choice.
    Aerial - Lightning Nimbus: You release a pulse of electricity into the air around you. Any creature within 20 ft of you takes 1d4 electricity damage per job but you may choose to exempt specific creatures within range. This electricity hangs around the targets in an aura of light for 1 round per job level negating any invisibility or concealment they may possess. A successful Reflex save halves this damage and causes the electric nimbus to illuminate them for only 1 round.
    Barren - Wasteland: You call upon the lifelessness of this place to reduce your foe to an equally barren spiritual desolation. One target within 30 ft takes 1d6 untyped damage per job level and loses that much MP. A successful Will save halves this damage.
    River: Steal the Flow: Target must make a Will save or have its speed reduced by 5 ft per job level for job level rounds, you gain the same enhancmeent bonus to speed.


    3rd Level:
    No new ability gained.

    4th Level:
    Planar Terrain: You gain the ability to draw Geomantic power from certain planar traits of the plane you are upon. In particular you can draw upon the alignment trait (whether major or minor) and the elemental or energy trait. In addition they may generate energy from the Transitive Planes here defined as Ethereal and Astral and similar planes, and from the Plane of Shadow which is not considered a transitive plane for this ability. Note that most non-Prime Planes will still count in one or more Basic or Advanced Terrains, for example the Plane of Shadow shows the full Prime Material range of environments, the Ethereal and Astral Planes are primarily Barren and arguably Aerial. An exception may be had for those gliding through the Plane of Earth (open areas count as Underground, earth glide does not) and the Plane of Fire as despite being inhospitable by Prime standards they have a thriving elemental ecosystem.

    Law - Justice Hammer: You extort the inherent order of the place upon the mind of your foe. One target within 60 ft takes 1d6 untyped damage per job level, this increases to 1d8/job level if their alignment is closer to Chaotic than yours, and decreases to 1d4/job level if their alignment is closer to Lawful than yours. In addition they are dazed for 1 round if their alignment is closer to Lawful than yours. A successful Will save halves this damage and negates the daze (if any). This is a mind-affecting compulsion.
    Chaos - Chaos Warp: You twist the geomantic energies of the place momentarily making it so that its already unfixed geography becomes completely discordant. Each enemy within 40 ft of you takes 1d6 untyped damage per job level and has its position changed to that of another creature within the area of effect; a creature teleported in this way is flat-footed until they next act. A successful Will save halves the damage and negates the teleportation for that creature. A creature's position is not necessarily swapped with the creature that gains its position although it is possible.
    Good - Holy Wrath: You call upon the righteous geomancy of the hallowed realm you find yourself in creating a burst of light in a 20 ft radius within 100 ft of you. This holy light deals 1d6 untyped damage per job level to non-good creatures within its area increasing to 1d8 vs evil creatures. Evil creatures within the area are also blinded for 1 round. A successful Will save halves the damage and reduces the blinded effect applied to evil creatures to dazzled for 1 round.
    Evil - Soul Geyser: You invoke the evil of the vile realm in which you find yourself to tear through the souls of your foes. You create a 20 ft radius cylinder (100 ft high) centered on yourself composed of the energy of damned souls that have melded into the landscape. Any non-designated creature within area takes 1d8 untyped damage per job level immediately and continues to take 2d8 damage per round for 1 round per job level. A successful Will save halves the damage and negates the ongoing damage.
    Fire - Inferno Scorch: You concentrate the energies of this place into a bolt of scorching flames. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 100 ft which deals 10d6 fire damage + 5d6 per job level beyond 4th.
    Water - Tsunami: You gather water currents and water to make a buffeting wave of water. This takes the form of a 60 ft cone which deals 1d6 bludgeoning damage per job level. In addition this water pushes creatures within the area back to the edge of the area; if they strike a solid object which prevents their movement they end there with no damage due to the collision, creatures furthest from you are pushed back first. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the forced movement.
    Air - Rain Lightning: You call lightning down upon your foes. Lightning strikes any number of targets within 400 ft. Each lightning strike is a ranged touch attack dealing 1d6 damage per job level, this damage is 1/2 electric and 1/2 sonic. You do not need line of effect for this ability, although you do need line of sight, and the lightning strikes from the direction of your choice.
    Earth - Crystalize: Calling upon the energies of this earthen realm you turn a foe into (worthless) crystal. One target within 5 ft must make a Fortitude save or be turned to inert stone along with all of its gear as if with the Flesh to Stone spell. The target must be made of flesh to be affected by this effect and creatures with the Earth subtype even if fleshy are immune.
    Negative - Grasp of Death: You harness the negative energy of the realm and force them upon a target within 5 ft. If living the target must make a Fortitude save or die (this is a death effect). If undead the target must make a Will save or cower for 1 round (this is not a fear effect but closer to Rebuke or Turn Undead).
    Positive - Silver Light: You gather the positive energy of the plane around a target within 30 ft healing them. The target is healed 1d6 hp per job level, with a Will save for half, this is a positive energy effect. If this would cause a creature to regain more hit points than their maximum hit points they gain the excess as temporary hit points which last for as long as they are on a Positive dominant plane. If this causes the target to have more temporary hit points than their maximum hit points they must make a Fortitude save or die immediately. This is a positive energy effect and thus damages undead instead of healing them.
    Transitive - Mind Stop: You freeze the mind of a target within 60 ft. The target takes 1d8 untyped damage due to the mental trauma of the attack and must make a Will save or be stunned for 1 round. This is a mind-affecting effect.
    Shadow - Darkness Falls: You call upon the chill of the shadow world freezing your foe and robbing them of their sight. One target within 60 ft takes 1d6 cold damage per 2 job levels and is blinded for 1 round per job level. A successful Will save halves the damage and negates blindness. The blindness is a mind-affecting effect.

    5th Level:
    Feature: You gain the ability to draw Geomantic power from various minor features of the terrain. Unlike the Terrain abilities Features are often small and sometimes mobile aspects. You must be adjacent to or in the same square as a Feature to call upon its Geomantic properties.

    Graveyard: This includes any site used for the ritualistic burial of the dead - Death's Rise: Summon an undead creature within (aura). This creature serves you for 1 round per job level before disappearing once more. You may only have one creature summoned with this ability at a time and if it is ever outside your (aura) or more than your aura distance from a Graveyard Feature it instantly vanishes. This is a summoning effect. The type of undead summoned is dependent upon Job level although you may select lower level undead. Job Level 5: Vampire Spawn. Job Level 6: Wraith. Job Level 7: Vampire Fighter. Job Level 8: Mohrg. Job Level 9: Greater Shadow. Job Level 10: Dread Wraith. All creatures may be found in the Monster Manual.
    Tree: A tree is self explanatory - Command Tree: The tree feature used attempts to grab a creature of your choice within 15 ft of it (30 ft if particularly large such as a redwood) with a melee touch attack (attack bonus = job level x3) and attempts to grapple them (grapple bonus = attack bonus + 6 if particularly large tree); this does not provoke an attack of opportunity. Tree continues to grapple that creature till it escapes or 1 round per job level passes. If you use the same tree for this ability it instantly releases any held creature.
    Undergrowth: Any square that has undergrowth as described in several places in the Wilderness section of the DMG - Hell Vines: You cause vines to burst into being in a 15-ft radius burst within 60 ft and grab at creatures within. Any creature within the area takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage per job level and is entangled and immobilized (unable to move from their square) for 1 round per job level. A successful Reflex save halves the damage and reduces the entanglement and immobilization to 1 round entangled. In addition any creature caught in the vines may, 1/round as part of a move action to move, make a Strength check (DC 13 + Charisma modifier) or an Escape Artist check (DC 13 + Job level + Charisma modifier) to escape the vines ending the immobilization and reducing the remaining duration of the entangle effect on them to 1 round.
    Window: A window including an arrow slit - Defenestrate: You cause geomantic powers to suck a creature within 30 ft of the window on one side of the window to the other. The target must make a Reflex save or be sucked through the window. If the target is too large to pass through the window even with an escape artist check to pass through an opening smaller than their shoulders, or there is no path the target can take to the window due to obstructions the target takes 2d6 bludgeoning damage/job level and whatever obstruction the target would hit on the straightest path (or the window if the target could get to it by a convoluted path) must make a Reflex save or take the same.
    Chimney/Fireplace: This functions if inside the chimney as well, fire pits do not count only true fireplace - Flue Spit: Fire bursts from the opening of the chimney or fireplace shooting at a target within 60 ft of it. This is a ranged touch attack which deals 2d6 fire damage per job level. You do not need line of effect to the target but the fireplace/chimney does.
    Bookcase: A shelf designed to contain a multitude of books and containing many books (empty bookcases don't count) - Siphon Knowledge: One target has their magical knowledge sucked into the tomes taking 1d6 MP damage per job level and 1d8 Int damage. A successful Will save negates the Int damage and halves MP damage.
    Altar (Holy): A holy altar is one dedicated to a good god, a good leaning god, in the case of staunchly neutral deities it is the DM's discretion whether they are holy or unholy - Radiance of Light: You pull upon the geomantic energies of the altar drawing upon its holy might. A target within 30 ft heals 1d6 hp per job level, this cannot heal a target above 1/2 their maximum hp, this is a positive energy effect. An undead creature is instead turned as if by a cleric of twice your Geomancer level, you must make a Turning Check as usual but have infinite turning damage and only affect the single target.
    Altar (Unholy): An unholy altar is one dedicated to an evil god, evil leaning god, some staunchly Neutral deities (DM's discretion), or an archfiend - Blacksoul's Poison: You create a poisonous geomantic energy within your target's blood stream. One target within 30 ft takes 1d6 ability damage to the ability score of your choice and then 1d6 damage to the same ability one minute later. A successful Fortitude save negates this damage and it is considered a (supernatural) poison meaning poison immunity or bonuses to saves versus poison apply.
    Cave Entrance: The entrance/exit from a cave to the outside world - Out of Hell: You summon a bat swarm to 4 contiguous squares within your (aura). This swarm has 7 hp per job level, all its base saves equal your job level, and deals 1d6 damage + 1d6 per 2 job levels with its swarm attack. Its wounding ability deals 1 damage + 1 damage per 2 job levels each round. The distraction save is 11 plus your job level. You may direct it as a move action, and it lasts for 1 round per 2 job levels. You may only have one swarm summoned with this ability at a time and if it is ever outside your (aura) or more than your aura distance from a Cave Entrance Feature it instantly vanishes. This is a summoning effect.
    Cloud/Mist: Any cloud, mist, or fog, including those created by Conjuration (Creation) spells and effects - Lost in Fog: You call a freezing fog around one target within 100 ft which saps the heat from their body and the sight from their eyes. The target takes 1d8 cold damage per job level and is blinded for 1 round per job level. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates Blindness.
    Pool (stagnant water): Any pool or puddle large enough to cover a 5 ft square - Sudden Drowning: You cause water to flood the lungs of your enemy. One target within 30 ft must make a Fortitude save or begin to drown and be limited to a standard, move, or swift action on their next turn. At the end of their next turn the target must make a 2nd Fortitude save or be knocked unconscious and reduced to -1 hp. At the end of their next turn target must make a Fort save or die. Creatures able to breathe water or with no need to breathe are immune.
    Snow: At least 1/6th of a cubic foot of snow - Chilling Frost: You gather icy energy launching it at a foe and slowing their movements. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 60 ft and deals 2d6 cold damage per job level. Target must make a Fortitude save or be slowed for 1 round/job level.
    Rain: Self-explanatory, if it is raining - Acid Rain: You create acid rain in a 20-ft tall, 5-ft diameter cylinder within 100 ft. This rain deals 1d8 acid damage per job level and reduces the AC of any creature within it by your Job level to a minimum of their touch AC for 1 round per job level. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the AC penalty entirely.
    Mud: At least a 5 ft square of muddy terrain - Encase in Mud: Must rises up around a target within 20 ft. The target must make a Reflex save or be encased in mud. While encased in mud they are only able to take purely mental actions or spend a Standard action to try and break the mud as a Str check (DC 15 plus your Charisma modifier), they are denied their Dexterity bonus to AC, and suffer a -2 to penalty on top of it. The mud vanishes after 1 round per job level. The mud may be broken by another creature as a standard action with a Strength check (same DC) or hacked away (the mud has 15 hp per job level, inanimate object has AC 5 + target's size modifier) and any attack against the target deals the same damage to the mud minus any precision damage dealt.
    Wind: Any place where the current wind speed is 30 mph or higher - Wind Slicer: You coalesce the wind into a blade which flies towards your foe. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 400 ft which deals 2d6 slashing damage per job level and has an 18-20/x2 critical threat range.
    Heavy Armor: A suit of heavy armor, this can be worn - Rage Magnet: You call upon the symbolic purpose of the armor releasing a burst of magical energy. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 15 ft and deals 1d10 untyped damage per job level. The target must make a Will save or be compelled to attack you on their next turn; this portion of the effect is a mind-affecting compulsion.
    Weapon Rack: A rack designed to store one or more weapons (not a scabbard) upon which there is at least one weapon - Animate Weapon: You cause the weapon on the rack to animate, floating up to 30 ft a round and attacking a target of your designation as if you were wielding it for 1 round per job level. You can designate a new target as a move action, and the weapon is treated as if you were wielding it in one hand except you may use your Charisma modifier in place of your Strength if it is higher. If you have Weapon Focus/Specialization in the weapon and Geomancy they stack, but if you have Improved Critical in both it only applies once.
    Doorway: A door in frame whether open or shut - Door to Nowhere: You twist the spatial symbolism of doors to send a target within 30 ft into a pocket dimension of halls and doorways. The target must make a Will save or be affected as if by a Maze spell with a duration of 1 round per 2 job levels.
    Unworked Rock: At least a medium sized rock or a 5-ft by 5-ft surface of exposed stone - Soften: You strip a foe of their resilience. One target within 100 ft loses all DR they possess for 1 round per job level; there is no save.

The target takes 1d6 slashing and piercing damage per job level and is nauseated for 1 round. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the nausea.

A successful Reflex save halves the damage and reduces the entanglement and immobilization to 1 round entangled. In addition any creature caught in the vines may, 1/round as part of a move action to move, make a Strength check (DC 13 + Charisma modifier) or an Escape Artist check (DC 13 + Job level + Charisma modifier) to escape the vines ending the immobilization and reducing the remaining duration of the entangle effect on them to 1 round.
    Marsh - Blackwater: One target within 30 ft is washed over with disease ridden water taking 1d6 acid damage per job level and contracts one of Cackle Fever, Filth Fever, Mindfire, Red Ache, Shakes, or Slimy Doom of your choice (as if with Contagion, no incubation time). A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the disease entirely.
    Hills - Earth Eruption: The ground in one square within 100 ft explodes dealing 2d6 bludgeoning damage per job level to all creatures in that square. A successful Reflex save halves this damage.
    Mountain - Rock Arrows: 1 arrow of stone forms from the ground and launches towards your foes per Job level. Each arrow deals 3d6 bludgeoning damage with a ranged attack, overcoming DR as adamantine. These arrows have a range of 400 ft.

    Underground - Cave In: You cause rocks to coalesce at the ceiling of the cavern and fall downwards onto your foes. Rocks fall in a 10 ft radius 300 ft tall cylinder within 60 ft dealing 2d6 bludgeoning damage per job level to all creatures within the area. A successful Reflex save halves.

You still must be flying to use Aerial terrain effects, though as long as the ground (or canopy for forest, or height level of the skyline for urban) is within your aura you may use other Terrain types while flying. You must be aware that a Terrain or Feature is within range to draw upon it, you do not necessarily require line of sight or line of effect however.

The target must make a Fortitude save or melt being destroyed in the process, if used on an object this destroys one 10-ft cube, unless the target is immune to fire. If the target is immune to fire but not an Elemental with the Fire subtype they receive 2d6 fire damage per job level. A successful Fortitude save negates the melting and reduces it to 1d8 fire damage per job level or halves the damage if the target is immune to fire damage. Fire damage dealt by this ability ignores energy resistance or immunity except that from the Fire subtype.

    Plains - Empty Mind: You call upon the great emptiness of the wide plains to impose a similar emptiness on your target's mind. One target within 20 ft has their Intelligence and Wisdom reduced to 1 and loses all memories they possess. This is a mind-affecting ability and they are allowed a Will save to resist the effect entirely. The ability reduction can be removed with a Heal spell, but it requires a Greater Restoration, Miracle, or Wish to restore lost memories (this will also cure the ability scores).
    Aquatic - Pressure Crush: You create a powerful crushing pressure within 20 ft. One target within range loses 1/2 their maximum hp. This is pressure damage and anything wholly immune to pressure is immune to this effect (typically giant squids, whales, aquatic aberrations, aquatic outsiders, and RAW aquatic elementals but as they don't use that subtype for elementals I'm guessing they meant Water subtype). A successful Fortitude save negates this effect.
    Underground - Eternal Echo: You set forth a powerful echo which rebounds through the head and body of one target within 100 ft. The target takes 3d6 sonic damage each round for 1 round per job level. In addition each round the target takes this damage they must make a Will save or be confused for 1 round.

    Road - Hold Unmoving: You strip a foe of the ability to move, the power to utilize a road. One creature within 100 ft is paralyzed for 1 round per job level. A successful Will save negates this effect, and the target can make a new Will save each round to end the effect.

    Window - None.
    Chimney/Fireplace - Flue Blast: A 30-ft cone of fire extends from the chimney or fireplace (at angle of your choice including 90 degree) dealing 2d6 fire damage per job level in its area. A successful Reflex save halves this damage.
    Bookcase - Spell Blaster: You release a 10-ft radius burst of energy within 100 ft which scrambles the powers of magic in the area. Any creature within this area takes 2d6 MP damage per job level and suffers a -6 penalty to mental ability scores for the purposes of spellcasting (and Spell-like Abilities) for 1 minute. A successful Will save halves the MP damage and negates the ability penalty.
    Altar (Holy) - Holy Burst: You create a burst of holy light particularly damaging to the undead. This is a 20-ft radius within 100 ft and deals 1d8 untyped damage per job level, but triple damage to undead creatures. A successful Will save halves this damage.
    Altar (Unholy) - Dark Flare: You create an unholy energy which fills the area of your choice. This is a 20-ft radius burst within 100 ft which deals 2d6 untyped damage per job level. There is no save to resist this profane power.
    Cave Entrance - World Gate: You manipulate the liminal power that connect the world above to the world below to send a creature within 30 ft to a random location on a plane of your choosing. A successful Will save negates this ability.
    Cloud/Mist - Iron Fog: You create a spread of fog hard as iron and tight as a straight jacket. This takes the form of a 20-ft radius and 20-ft high spread of fog within 100 ft. Creatures within it when it appears are crushed by the iron fog taking 2d6 bludgeoning damage per Job level. A Fort save halves this damage. This spread of fog remains and acts as a solid fog spell for 1 minute.
    Pool - Deadwater: You form virulent acidic water bubbling up across your target's flesh. One creature within 100 ft takes 2d6 acid damage per job level, and contracts a disease as contagion. A successful Fortitude save halves this damage and resists the disease.
    Snow - Bury in Snow: You create a 10 ft cube of snow within 100 ft and you may create it in the air. This cube of snow deals 10d6 bludgeoning damage and 10d6 cold damage to creatures it falls on. Creatures whose space is wholly covered are buried under the snow, taking 2d6 damage and 2d6 cold damage each round until they succeed on a Strength check (DC 15 + Charisma modifier) to escape (Full round action). A successful Reflex save halves damage and prevents being buried. The snow melts after 10 minutes.
    Rain - Wash Out: You wash away protective magic on targets. This functions as a targeted greater dispel magic in a 10-ft radius burst except that it only affects beneficial spells upon the target (if a spell has both hindering and beneficial effects DM jurisdiction as to whether it is affected). You total bonus to the dispel checks involved is equal to twice your Job level.
    Mud - Consume with Mud: You call mud forth to grab a creature and transport it into an extradimensional space where they are suffocated in mud for 2 minutes before reappearing. A successful Will save prevents this transport. You may only have one creature consumed by mud at a time, if you use it again whether the target saves or fails the last target is expelled.
    Wind - Gale Swap: You call screeching winds around you and a target within 400 ft. The target takes 2d6 Sonic damage per Job level and you and it switch positions (this is a teleportation effect). A successful Will save halves the damage and prevents the teleportation effect entirely.
    Heavy Armor - Gravity Crush: You create a crushing gravitational pressure on the target. Target creature or object within 30 ft loses half its max hp. A successful Fortitude save negates this effect.
    Weapon Rack - Blade Dance: A phantasmal copy of weapon on rack attacks each enemy within 30 ft of the weapon rack as if you had made a melee attack with it. You may substitute your Charisma for your Strength for the purposes of this attack and are considered to wield the weapon two-handed. The phantasmal copy of the weapon is able to strike incorporeal creatures as if it had ghost touch even if the weapon does not, otherwise it has the same weapon properties as the weapon on the rack.
    Doorway - Anywhere Door: Doors lead places. You use the geomantic power of that fact to transport a target within 60 ft of the door elsewhere. The target is teleported 1d1000 miles in a random direction (along the curvature of the planet if any). A successful Will save negates this effect.
    Unworked Rock - Petrify: You turn your foe into the same stone that you draw power from. This functions as Flesh to Stone with a range of 30 ft. A Fortitude save negates this effect.
    Worked Rock: - Shatter: To shape stone is to destroy it bit by bit. You call upon that destruction on one target. Target object, construct, or Earth subtype creature within 30 ft is instantly destroyed unless they succeed on a Fortitude save in which case they merely take 10d6 damage.
    Torture Device - Bare Nerves: You cause the skin of a foe within 100 ft to peel away revealing raw nerves. The target takes 2d6 untyped damage per job level, they then take double damage for 1 minute causing them to suffer a -4 penalty on all d20 rolls due to excruciating pain, and any act that requires concentration requires a DC 35 (+ spell level) Concentration check. A successful Fortitude halves the damage and negates the other effects.

    Default Re: The Final Fantasy Job System in a Class: Freelancer

    Alternate Hunter Job and Archer Job

    For those of you who think that Freelancer should have a lower level ranged option there is the Archer job from the Tactics games (and MMOs based in the same Ivalice universe) which serves as an entry level version of Hunter. For that reason here is a variant Hunter Job for working with the potential Archer Job as well as the Archer Job itself (which technically falls into 'Forbidden Jobs' but only barely as the main reason it didn't exist originally was creator burn out). The new version is probably a bit stronger with more damage options, a few [Shot] commands which can be used with a full attack (but not with X-Attack), and most importantly the ability to equip Archer passives and the Archery Command for a more specialized archer.

    Archer Job
    Spoiler: Archer
    Show

    Command – Archery
    All abilities within this command function only with ranged attacks, and will not function with melee attacks or thrown weapons.

    In addition Archery possesses the [Shot] descriptor on certain of its commands. One such command ability can be used each round as part of an attack made as part of an attack or full attack action. Any save DC from a [Shot] command has a DC of 2 less than normal (8 + Job level + score).

    1st:
    Aim (Ex): As an action taking 1 full round you may make a single ranged attack which deals +1d8 damage/job level, and an additional +1d8 damage if you have +6 or higher BAB, another if you have +11 or higher, and a third if you have +16 or higher. This shot requires you to determine your target when you begin the action, and if you are damaged while performing this action you must make a Concentration check (DC 10 + damage received) or lose the bonus damage.

    2nd:
    Lightning Shot [Shot] (Ex): An attack modified with this command cannot be reacted to with immediate actions or attacks of opportunity.

    3rd:
    Disarming Shot [Shot] (Ex): You may fire a shot to attempt to disarm an opponent. This functions as a disarm attempt except made with a ranged weapon and you are always considered to be wielding a 1 handed weapon but add half your Job level to all opposed rolls made as part of the attempt and cannot be disarmed in return.

    4th:
    Poison Shot [Shot] (Su): You may fire a shot which inflicts an injury poison dealing 1d6 Constitution damage as initial and secondary damage (Fort DC 8 + job level + Charisma modifier). For every 2 job levels past 4 you possess this poison inflict +1 Constitution damage with its initial and secondary damage.

    5th:
    Exorcist Shot [Shot] (Su): You may make an attack instilled with energy disruptive to the undead. Any undead creature struck must make a Will save (DC 8 + Job level + Charisma modifier) or be destroyed.

    6th:
    Blackout Shot [Shot] (Su): You may fire a shot towards a foe which is instilled with a mystical energy that obscures their sight. The target must make a Will save (DC 8 + Job level + Charisma modifier) or be blinded for 1d4 rounds.

    7th:
    Leg Shot [Shot] (Ex): You may attempt to cripple a creature’s ability to move. If you hit in addition to normal damage reduce a single movement speed of choice (such as land, swim, fly) by half for 1 minute. The target is allowed a Fortitude save (DC 8 + Job level + Dexterity modifier) to negate this effect. This effect stacks with itself and may reduce a creature’s speed to 0 ft with two successful uses.

    8th:
    Aimed Shot: When you use Aim you may apply a single other archery command to it, for example the effects of Lightning Shot, or Blackout Shot. If this command ability allows a saving throw the DC is increased by 4.

    9th:
    Death Whisper (Su): As a standard action make a single attack. If you hit the target must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + Job level + Dexterity) or be affected as if by the Doom spell.

    10th:
    Double Shot: When you make a full attack you may apply 2 different shot commands to 2 different attacks made as part of the action. If you use Aimed Shot you may apply 2 different shot commands to your Aimed Shot.

    Light Armor Proficiency

Costs 6 slots.

    3rd:
    Spread Shot (Ex): As a standard action you may release a single arrow at each of many targets. Make a single attack at your highest attack bonus at up to job level targets within 1 range increment. You may not use [Shot] commands with this ability.

    Heya, I have to say. In spite of your feeling you failed to balance it with other classes, I love this thing. It seems like a lot of fun and I'd love to get some friends together to frig around with it.

    That said, I noticed a couple of issues. One: the Holy Knight's Saint Cross ability simply says you can pay MP, it doesn't say how much.

    The other is that I'm not sure I understand job level advancement. You have levels that can be assigned and points used to let jobs 'catch up', both of which are explained. What aren't explained are the levels that say '1 to all'. As far as I can read they boost all jobs' level? But if that's the case, the catchup levels in parentheses are pointless. Unless it's only 1 to jobs already unlocked? And the catchup points are for jobs from later crystal sets.

    Either way, thank you for writing this up! I'll be all too happy to relay findings if I can find a group to try it with.

    For the Job level portion as clarified in the section on Job levels: "At 5th level, 9th level, 13th level, and 17th level a Freelancer gains 1 job level in each job they have access to instead of assigning them normally." Those would be the levels they get +1 to all, and they wouldn't have access to higher tier jobs at those levels. I'll throw in the word currently to make it clearer that it's not retroactive. Even with it being retroactive eventually catch up levels might be needed, I can't say for sure how close they are to maxing all jobs at 20th (I calculated it several times with several different job level progressions, it'd be too close at least).

    Added an MP cost to Saint's Cross (10), which is not quite what you'd pay with Black Magic (Blizzara deals 20d6 at Job level 10 in a smaller area for 1 more, but has the option of being single target and comes online at 15d6 at a lower job level).

    And thanks, I hope you do find a group to use it with.

    Did some quick napkin math after dinner- took it from an angle of attempting to be a powerful melee onion knight. Assuming I did it right, and having skipped any added/forbidden jobs, of the 21 jobs available I managed to get 6 to 10, one to 9, and the others arrayed lower. Still 76 job levels away from everything maxed. Makes the onion knight benefit equivalent to having a belt of physical perfection and whatever of mental perfection +6. While I confess I'm not sure how that stacks up in 3.X, having not played it in some time in favour of pathfinder and 5th, it -feels-
    good in a certain visceral and very onion knighty way

    Edit: I also think it might be relevant to mention that the only sub-5 jobs I wound up with were the three earth crystal jobs I wasn't interested in- which wound up at 3 each just by nature of the point allotments.

    I'd think the easiest fix for switching between melee and casting would be. . . not allowing the switch between melee and casting. It never actually occurred to me to do that (in FF) since I specialize my characters as much as possible anyway. Chameleon doesn't let you do so until 10th and it's the only one I can think of that actually switches out spellcasting since Factotums have all their stuff active (and very few spells) while Binders have at best a few warlock or 1/5 round spells. Really all the variability can just be stripped out by stages depending on what the rest of the party is made up of and how much of a problem it is: I'm sure it'd be playable even if it took 8 hours to change jobs or you only had one job at each tier, possibly both.

    I'm not actually familiar with most of the later games you're referencing: it looks like they started letting you equip more and more stuff from your non-primary jobs, which rather muddies the water when you've got the ability to switch mid-day. If you can equip extra stuff you shouldn't need to change jobs mid-day, or if you can change you shouldn't get free stuff without stopping to change. Always having 3 Command abilities even at 1st is kinda huge and I'd expect it to be the biggest problem: it's a Chameleon who gets Triple Aptitude at 1st instead of Double Aptitude at 12th (with potentially fewer spell slots). I imagine this comes from later games basically letting you keep any spell you learn which would be modeled here by keeping the Commands active, but that's not very compatible with a system where you're supposed to switch jobs. Delaying extra Commands until later levels (and possibly penalizing the levels of the non-primary Commands) would go a long way towards keeping everything in line.

    Regarding MP, well I've never thought the UA tables made any sense, but then again if you want to have spells auto-scale with caster level to allow efficient use of MP via lower level spells then you can't use the psionic tables which assume all damage is paid for. I'd have gone with spell slots but it looks like you have some MP-cost intensive abilities later on so that wouldn't work very well.

    I'm not sure what the last paragraph/line in the job system general section means. At the moment I think it means that even though you change jobs in 10 minutes, the extra commands and passives assigned to your jobs persist and must be changed with a different 1 hour action which is limited by rest and only changes 2 jobs at a time.

    Edit: and let's return. Upon further review, I'd also go so far as to say that a lot of these abilities are probably more powerful than they should be. A lot of people would probably say my balance points are all out of whack, but anyway.

    Black Mage: This section has Kill and Death, black magic section has Kill at a high level which is probably a copypasta error. Damage Dispersion is a nice way of dealing with squishies in the back. See Invis and Arcane Sight are some nice utility for a blaster and helps with the JRPG feel of always knowing when you're in a fight and if they're buffed, even when you can't see anything obvious. Fight Fire With Fire is the only problematic ability I think: while most people would say that high level magic is won before the fight based on save or lose and immunities, that really just means it comes down to who chooses the right time to start blasting. FFWF just straight up doubles your spell output against another caster, which is only not-broken in a game where other casters are allowed to double their spell outputs (not my games). Is this meant to make up for the lack of Quicken Spell (which I find rather overrated)?

    Knight: Cover Ally has no range. Rending Blow's ability damage seems a little high to me for having no save: Rending Strikes is only a bit better unless you have extra attacks from another source. Vengeance needs a line requiring the allies to have been downed by foes to prevent cheesing. Bravery's a bit poorly worded but readable.

    Monk: lots of proofreading but legible. Commands are interesting, Ki Strike (Total) is nice, stuff fits better as you re-read it, all in all the only thing I'd make note of is the (first?) appearance of the Counter [Counter], as it's one of the clear draws that's easy in FF but huge in DnD. Obviously DMs should already be expecting this, but the Freelancer stuff allows you to take the wide area lockdown builds of DnD, add on the ability to force hits onto yourself, and get free counter attacks. So what people call actual Tanking.

    Thief: early abilities are heavily dependent on weather or not you can use sleight of hand to steal from people during combat. I don't know if there's an official ruling, but I generally assume you can't because it'd be crazy powerful and doesn't make much sense when someone's watching you-that's what Disarm is for. I also don't really support the idea of an ability for +20 initiative, and immediate action full attack would be dependent on weather or not I've decided to allow Celerity. So if I'm running a game where I've cracked down on initiative/action abuse this job gets pretty screwed. The rest is mostly fine, Masterful Theft is amusing and Thief's Grace feels like it should show up sooner if AC is supposed to be a thing but eh.

    White Mage: not much to say, it works. Compared to FFWF, Reactive Restoration just forces them to burn (equal?) resources trying to kill you, rather than letting you kill them twice as fast. You're still throwing offense every round and healing for no action cost, but there's more room to play.

    Hope no one was waiting for me to come back, though it seems more likely either interest was low or it just got pushed down the page too fast. I'll bump after I've added enough critique to make it worth it.

    Attention Imgur Users! Imgur apparently doesn't like hosting images anymore and only works in certain places or for people who already have the image cached: No one can see your avatars or images!
    Also Photobucket users? Don't know if it's a bandwidth or region lock or something, but I'm seeing some avatars blurred out with a watermark that looks like the photobucket icon.
    And Tinypic went down a while back, seeing plenty of old avatars showing their downed image.
