    Default Halp!

    I have inspiration for a class, I just can't figure out the path forward with making it happen. Anyone up for collaborating?

    Thank you for any help.

    See, there's a spell that I love. Moon Blade. I'd like to see it, or a direct analog, taking the place of Eldritch Blast on a warlock analog. Maybe make it a bit more fighty?

    Since the spell is melee, why not do a martial/warlock PRC that gets a moon blade as a variant of eldritch glaive and some new moon themed invocations? Or if you want to make it a base class, it could be a hexblade class variant -- hexblade should be using invocations to begin with, if only to differentiate it from duskblade. In 4e, hexblades get a special "pact blade" with a special name (eg, "black blade of oblivion" I think was one choice) -- the moon blade could be this variant's pact blade.

    I'd like to find a way to remove the uses/day limit. That said, I do like the direction you went with this, Elves. Perhaps putting this together will be the inventive I need to finally get a hang of spell-casting.

    Because I'm not looking for Druid-Lock. And I don't do pets.

    I've been going over this in my head all day and I just had an epiphany.

    A Soulmeld. Not many spells at all have the potential to be converted into a soulmeld, but I think Moon Blade can.

    It's got five elements to it: 1d8 untyped damage, double damage to undead, counts as sword (all of them), melee touch attacks, scrambles magic

    Now, there's six power levels that soulmelds have access to on top of the base effect.
    Crown
    Hands/feet
    Arms/brow/shoulders
    Throat/waist
    Heart
    Soul

    What if, instead of a unique effect at each applicable chakra point, it could be bound to any chakra and each level of chakra location let you choose your choice of a designated number of elements?

    Here's version 1.

    Spoiler: V.1
    Show

    Shaped
    1d8 untyped, 20/x2
    (+1 to hit and hurt)/ essentia

    Selection Pool
    • Double damage to undead
    • Counts as sword (all of them)
    • Melee touch attacks
    • Scrambles magic
    • ...
    • ...


    Crown= 1 effect
    Hands/feet= 2 effects
    Arms/brow/shoulders= 3 effects
    Throat/waist= 4 effects
    Heart= 5 effects
    Soul= all effects


    In this case, only two more elements are needed. Don't put it on any Meldshaper list; it's only available through the Shape Soulmeld feat.


    Whew!
    Any thoughts?
