  • Prodigy Hybrid Class This hybrid class clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial (misspelling author names), 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 10 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The prodigy class gets d8 HD, 4 +Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons, saps, rapiers and light armors, 3/4 BAB-progression and good Will- and Ref-saves. Spellcasting-wise, the prodigy gains access to the bard’s spell-list, but casts these spells as psychic spells.. She also gets access to all spiritualist spells with somatic components – for a grand total of RAW NONE. Let me quote the base rules of psychic magic: “Therefore, psychic spells never have verbal or […]

  • Mariner Hybrid Class This hybrid class clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages, so let’s take a look!   The mariner as presented her gets d10 HD, 4 + Int skills per level and proficiency with simple and martial weapons as well as all armors and shields except tower shields.

The class gets a full BAB-progression as well as good Fort- and Ref-saves and begins play with +4 to Swim checks (untyped) that is increased to +6 when the mariner has 10 ranks in the skills.

  • Four Horsemen Present: Hybrid Class – The Renegade This hybrid class from the Four Horsemen clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The renegade, chassis-wise, is a blending of the gunslinger and rogue and receives d8 HD, 6+Int skills per level, good Ref-saves and a 3/4 BAB-progression. At 1st level, the class gains gunsmith and the class does gain Panache (based on Charisma, maximum equal to Charisma-modifier) and may regain panache via killing blows with firearms, critical hits with pistols and, if applicable, the class pools both grit and panache and may use the resources interchangeably. Proficiency-wise, the class […]

  • Zauberer Hybrid Class This PWYW-class-pdf clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Zauberer (German for Wizard, btw. – and the same word in singular and plural) would be a combination between sorceror and magus. Class-chassis-wise, the Zauberer received d8 HD, 3/4 BAB-progression, good Fort- and Will-saves, 4+Int skills per level, proficiency with simple and martial weapons and light armor. 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. Zauberer cast spells from the Sorceror […]

  • Four Horsemen Present: Technomagic Hybrid Magic Items This pdf clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1/2 page editorial, leaving us with 14.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right – so you may know already that I *love* scifi/fantasy mash-up – but does this one work? Well, we’ll see! We begin with a limited armor special ability that is rather interesting: Self-charging armor functions for a number of hours equal to the enhancement bonus as if it possessed charges without consuming charges – this is limited and yet useful. Nice! The pdf also sports no less than 4 specific pieces of armor, beginning with the EMP armor, dealing reflexive damage […]
