    Default Homebrew System: Enter the Hero

    The Basics:

    This is an attempt at a single-class system. There are actually four classes, but only one is intended for PC use. Obviously, the PCs are expected to play the part of the Hero, and the system balances the classes with that in mind.

    This is a spin-off of D&D, and the rules reference alot of mechanics from the PHB, such as the paladin's Lay on Hands ability.

    Some Common Houserules that are an intrinsic part of this system:

    Defense Bonus

    Damage Conversion

    Reserve Points

    Magic Rating

    Recharge Magic

    Recharge Manuevers
    -Manuevers have recharge times as well as spells. This system obviously doesn't use the ToB classes, but a variation of Martial Study is a complex feat. Manuevers and spells have a very similar mechanic in this system, which is laid out in the magic section.

    Bonus Complex Feat at 5,10,15,20
    Favored Weapon at 1,4,8,12,16,20

    Proficient with all armor and shields.
    Proficient with all simple weapons.
    Proficient with one exotic weapon or two martial weapons.

    Favored Weapon:
    level 1: Weapon Focus
    level 4: Weapon Specialization
    level 8: Improved Critical
    level 12: Greater Weapon Focus
    level 16: Greater Weapon Specialization
    level 20: Augmented Critical*

    The Hero has a particular weapon that he prefers to use most of the time. Most of the feats ought to be self-explanatory. Augmented Critical triples the threat range of the weapon and increases the critical mulitplier by one (this replaces the effects of Improved Critical).

    Improved Damage Conversion
    The Villain doubles the amount of non-lethal damage his armor prevents, and doubles the amount of damage his armor converts to non-lethal damage.

    Improved Reserve Pool
    The Villain's Reserve Pool is double his HPs, and he recovers one HP from his reserve every round, instead of every minute.



    The Minion:

    No Reserve
    Minions can only recover HP through bed rest and magical healing

    Inferior Damage Conversion
    Minions do not reduce the non-lethal damage they take by wearing armor. Minions convert only 1/2 of the normal amount of damage to non-lethal by wearing armor.

    Proficient with one type of light armor, or with shields (but not tower shields).

    No Reserve
    Townsfolk can only recover HP through bed rest and magical healing

    Inferior Damage Conversion
    Townsfolk do not reduce the non-lethal damage they take by wearing armor. Townsfolk convert only 1/2 of the normal amount of damage to non-lethal by wearing armor.




    The Design Philosophy for these classes is that Minions can terrorize the townsfolk, Heroes defeat minions, and Villains are more powerful than Heroes.

    The desired balance I am looking for is as follows:
    It takes 4 townsfolk to beat a minion of equal level
    It takes 4 minions to beat a hero of equal level
    It takes 4 heroes to beat a villain of equal level

    Default The Magic System

    The PC starts with the slowest caster level progression in the game, requiring that he sacrifice investment in other areas of his character in order to be a full spellcaster. This also leaves the player free to dabble if he likes. It is worth mentioning that at level 20, a Hero could have a caster level of 21, if he takes Magical Training and Spell Mastery for all of his complex feats. Such a character would only know 11 spells, however.

    Metamagic feats are applied to known spells, and increase the spell level of the spell. This has three effects. First, the character must have a caster level of 2X the effective level of the spell, -1, in order to cast it with a metamagic feat applied. Second, applying metamagic to a spell increases the casting time to a full round. Third, the increase in effective spell level increases the amount of time before the spell recharges.


    Clarification:

    In the case of manuevers, the time it takes to recover a manuever is identical to the amount of time it would require for you to recharge a spell of the same level (assuming your caster level and initiator level are the same).

    Vaguely surprised this didn't get any comments.

    It's an interesting system idea, although it doesn't seem to leave much room for minion variance (high-ranking lieutenants versus cannon fodder), short of hiking the level, but I suppose that's the same thing as increasing CR.
    The road goes ever on and on,
    Down from the door where it began,
    Now far ahead the road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can--
    Pursuing it with eager feet,
    Meeting those who travel on the way,
    Where many paths and errands meet,
    And whither then, I cannot say.

    I love the idea; I want to run a game with this now. It's simple, but I think it would be great for straightup dungeon-crawling or kingdom-saving.

    For complex fighter-y feats, how about if you rolled the combat expertise tree into one? Or TWF, or archery (to simulate a Ranger), or unarmed (simulate a monk). A suggestion in the vein of the "assassin" feat, how about one for Duelist (the only other Core melee PrC)


    Also:

    Maybe I'm just missing something, but I don't see how Magical Training boosts caster level. Spell Mastery bumps you up a category, but Magical Training (as written, I think) only lets you learn a spell, not affecting caster level. Are you assuming that every simple feat is Practiced Spell? Also, if so, I assume that Practiced Spell (and Practiced Maneuver also I suppose) is not capped at your HD?


    Nevermind, saw what I was missing.

    Here is my take on Duelist (complex feat):

    Duelist:
    prereq: Combat Expertise
    Benefit: When fighting defensively or using combat expertise, you may add your intelligence modifier to your to-hit and AC as an insight bonus. This benefit does not apply when wielding a two-handed weapon or when using a shield. You gain your intelligence modifier as an insight bonus to Reflex saves when not flat-footed.

    Looks cool. A couple questions that I came up with while making a Villain earlier:

    1) How does maneuver recharge work? You mention that spell and maneuver recharge is described in the Spells section, but that section does not address maneuvers.

    2) If a Villain takes the complex feat Battle Hardened, how does it affect his class ability to double Damage Conversion? Does taking that feat once increase his damage conversion by 1, or is the double applied afterward, so increasing by 2?

    1) How does maneuver recharge work? You mention that spell and maneuver recharge is described in the Spells section, but that section does not address maneuvers.
    Take the manuever, and compare its level to the highest level manuever you can use (1/2 initiator level, rounded up). Once you have determined this, compare this to the recharge chart for spells. link
    Which means that if you use a manuever that is the highest level manuever you can know, it will take 1d6+1 rounds to recover.

    2) If a Villain takes the complex feat Battle Hardened, how does it affect his class ability to double Damage Conversion? Does taking that feat once increase his damage conversion by 1, or is the double applied afterward, so increasing by 2?
    It is doubled afterward, increasing it by 2.

    So every maneuver is counted as "general"? Just checking; I suppose that makes sense.

    Question about the Rogue feat: Other than being able to re-select an ability from the list, is there any other advantage to taking multiple levels in it? The Healer, Holy Warrior, and Sorcerer's Boon feats all have advantages to repeating (more potent healing, more damaging smiting, and more spells, respectively) but from what I see the Rogue class only gives you another ability from the (in my opinion, slightly limited) list.

    I figured that would be it, but it wasn't very clear... If it had been written +Zd6 then I would've seen it better. Thanks.

    I almost wrote it that way, but then there would have been confusion over whether you can take Rogue multiple times for different abilities. Hence, "you may take this feat multiple times, its effects stack".

    If I had included that and +Zd6 sneak attack, it could have been interpretted as getting +Zd6 each time you take the feat.

    What if you just wrote "you do an extra Zd6 damage" instead of +Zd6?

    So it's basically a passive sneak attack, and then the sneak attack feat is a more powerful, active skill? Or does the skill give the effect of a sneak attack and then taking the feat doubles the sneak attack-ness of it?

    There's a sneak attack feat?
