  • Umbra Base Class This base class clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 4 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The umbra class presented herein receives d8 HD, 6 + Int-mod skills per level, 3/4 BAB-progression, good Ref- and Will-saves and proficiency with simple weapons as well as hand crossbow, rapier, sword cane (nice!), shortsword, kukri, starknife and (composite) shortbows as well as light armor and bucklers. The class also nets 30 ft. darkvision and low-light vision at first level, which makes it too dippable from the get-go, even before the other options, but that just as an aside.

The class begins play with 1/day alchemical smite: This is activated as a move action […]

  • The Thingomancer Prestige Class This pdf clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Thingomancers possess and use many…things.

Zauberer do not incur spell failure while in light armor and yes, the rules-language is precise enough and allows for no means to cheese this via multiclassing – kudos.
