  • Legendary Classes: Eternal Mage This installment of the Legendary Classes-series clocks in at 23 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 19 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, what is this eternal mage guy? The class gets d6 HD, 2+Int mod skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons and suffer from arcane spell failure when wearing armor (and gain no proficiencies there). They also get 1/2 BAB-progression and good Will-saves – so, we have the classic full caster chassis, right?   Kind of. Spellcasting is radically different. Eternal mages draw their spells from the wizard spell list and are spontaneous casters – as such, Charisma is their governing […]

  • Legendary Classes: Quartermaster This installment of the Legendary Classes-series clocks in at 30 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 26.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The quartermaster is the lord of equipment – as a framework, the class gets 3/4 BAB-progression, good Ref- and Will-saves, 6+Int skills per level, proficiency with simple and martial weapons as well as light and medium armor proficiency. He may disarm magical traps as though he was a rogue and traps disarmed by him can be re-armed as a move action. The class may use Appraise instead of Perception to spot valuables and also use the skill to identify magic items. The […]

  • Legendary Classes: Sacerdote This installment of the Legendary Classes-series clocks in at 35 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page blank, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 31.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The sacredote base class presented herein gets d6 HD, 2+Int skills, proficiency with dagger, club, hanbo, quarterstaff and no armors – sacerdotes in armor risk arcane spell failure for divine spells when wearing armor/using shields. The class gets 1/2 BAB-progression and good Will-saves. A sacerdote casts prepared divine spells governed by Wisdom as casting attribute from the cleric’s spell-list. He may not cast spells from opposed alignments, as usual – however, here’s the catch: They have a second spell-list, […]

  • Legendary Classes: Illuminatus – The Chaos Mage This supplement clocks in at 37 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with 32 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So what is the chaos illuminate or Illuminatus? First of all, the class would need to be non-lawful. It receives d6,4+Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons, 1/2 BAB-progression, good ref and will-saves and spellcasting of up to 9th level via a unique spell-list. Speaking of spellcasting – while it does work via cha and spontaneous, the casting works different than for any other class – Illuminati don’t cast regular spells, rather learning to cast so-called wonders instead. Each wonder is […]

  • Legendary Classes: More Covenant Magic So this is the long-anticipated sequel to one of my top-ten books of 2013, the expansion to David Nicholas Ross’ superb covenant magic book! A hard legacy to live up to, so let’s take a look! Page-wise, we get 35 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC/editorial, 2.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with a massive 30.5 pages of content, so what do we get here?   Now I *assume* you’re familiar with the exceedingly cool, but also complex medium class from Legendary Classes: Covenant Magic in this review, so if you’re not, please check that one. Okay, back? Great! We kick off with not only a short side-box covering the role of mediums […]

  • Legendary Classes: Rune Magic This supplement is 25 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with 20 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   So – what is Rune Magic? Basically, it is the force that initiated the calling on PDG’s much-anticipated setting of Porphyra, calling in the clash between two traditions, the New Gods to the world – and now you may harness this primal power. Runes, on a basic level, are essentially Words of Power as you know them from Paizo’s Ultimate Magic supplement.   The first way to do so is via the variant class (based on the alchemist, but honestly, completely different!) Runecaster: d8, […]
