  • Eldritch Ghost Hunter Hybrid Class This hybrid class clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, the eldritch ghost hunter, chassis-wise, receives d8 HD, 6 + Int skills per level, proficiency with simple and martial weapons, as well as hand crossbows, long bow, repeating crossbow, short bow and the deity’s favored weapon. Wait. On a nitpick: It’s “longbow” and “shortbow”, not “long bow” and “short bow”; but more weirdly, those are already included in the martial weapon proficiency, so what happened here? Cut-copy-paste oversight? Or was the martial weapon proficiency supposed to cover […]

  • Eldritch Parapsychologist Hybrid Class This pdf clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 10 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The parapyschologist class presented here receives d6 HD, proficiency with club, dagger, heavy crossbow, light crossbow, quarterstaff and no armors or shields, which hamper spellcasting. The class gets 3/4 BAB-progression, good Will-saves and his spellcasting is governed by Intelligence, but oddly is spontaneous, not prepared. The class has its very own and exceedingly detailed spell list, just fyi. They gain Eschew Materials at 1st level, though the class still sports a reference to “sorceror” in a ccp-glitch here.   Also at 1st […]

  • Prestige Archetypes: The Eldritch Hunter This installment of the Prestige Archetype-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, ~1/2 a page of editorial, leaving us with 5 1/2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   First question – what are prestige archetypes? Well, they are essentially a breakdown of a regular PrC into a full-blown 20-level spanning class – so no, these classes don’t necessarily mean that you’ll have a universal archetype (wouldn’t have worked in this context, I think), instead providing a retooled playing experience so you don’t have to work your way up to the PrC via classes you don’t want to play. So that’s definitely a pro-side. On the con-side, […]
