Official Update Thread

In regards to Extra MP, instead of increasing your stat by 4 or granting an extra 2 (taken repeatedly for more), why not just treat it like the toughness feat? Starting at first level you get 1 MP and it increases by an additional 1 per level. Even if you feel like that would be too much, you could increase the MP gained by half your level (max of 10 at 20th). We just started playing over this past weekend and I could feel the problems that a 3.5 Wizard or Sorcerer had. Out of MP so quick and nothing left to do.

Running out of MP is only relative to low levels, I never see this problem with my players at higher levels (5+). And as Luc said, power rods and staves also work.

We (myself and another new player) didn't know about Power Rods/Staves. We were also trying to pass a tablet with the PDF around to get through character gen as quickly as we could. Ended up with the Body Fuel feat, which is more of a boon than the current form of Extra MP.

That being said: on your website, General Feats have Extra MP listed as a +2 MP bonus and under Class Feats it says +4 to your casting stat for calculating MP.

Sweet! I cannot wait for the Green Mage.

I am curious, is there any chance your edited version of LucarinZer0's Magicite Knight will make it into this update?

I know you mentioned it before, but any idea on the Magicite Knight conversion? I've been chomping at the bit since it was mentioned. Tongue

No, but if I do, I usually post a draft to my Patreon account first. Like i did with the overhaul of the Sword Saint class.

Classes

Alright, I look forward to it. Let me know if I need to make some changes some of the creatures could be a little off from their CR. I can also change some of the spells so their only monster related assuming they're too powerful for any player to wield.

4/25/2017 - Minor update - I've created FFd20 Character Sheets finally, located in the PDF section. 1st one is the standard 2-part character sheets. The 2nd file includes all 5 parts of the character sheets plus an Animal Companion and Familiar character sheets. In addition, I've added a new (optional) class, the Freelancer. The Freelancer is basically a classless system to make your own class as you level up. This is an OPTIONAL class. Consult your DM before you decide to play it. DMs, I highly recommend reading over it. While, I have tested some of it, I haven't gone over it with a fine comb. I'm sure someone will attempt to break and abuse it. Over the next 3 months, I will be planning a massive Monster Compendium update along with new Blue Mage spells.

Classes

Freelancer - New (optional) class that allows you to build your class as you level up.

6/12/2017 - Minor update - Regretfully, I did not get to update the Monster Compendium nor add the new Blue Mage spells. But in the meantime, I've changed the Samurai archetype into a Samurai hybrid class with the help of Nelo and a few new archetypes. I'll try, eventually, to get the other stuff done. Sorry!

Classes

Bard - Changed Resonance ability to reflect the change in Dissonance.
Freelancer - Added more clarification to ability cost.
Gambler - Removed Advantageous Avoidance gambler trick. It was too similar to Bad Draw.
Holy Knight - Changed the duration of the Judgment Blade to 1 round. (Both the main class and the Holy Swordsman archetype)
Knight - Changed Roused Defense ability a little bit.
Monk - To be honest, I have no idea what I changed, but I updated it anyways. I'm sure it was an error or something with a combo finisher.
Samurai - A new Knight/Monk hybrid class.
Thief - Changed Trap Spotter to a passive Perception check. Easier on the GMs.

Archetypes

Apothecary - Added a new ability.
Caller - Dropped Augment Summoning and added clarification to the Summon Monster ability.
Duelist - A new Sword Saint archetype.
Ki Warrior - Fixed an error.
Pugilist - Not sure what I did to Pugilist, but updated anyways.
Sage - Fixed errors.
Samurai - Archetype scrapped and removed.
Skylancer - Nerfed Dimensional Leap's range and other properties.
Sword Captain - A new Sword Saint archetype.
Warrior Monk - A new Samurai archetype.

Actually I would hold on a little on them creatures. I should have a slightly new pdf with updated attack bonuses. I made a slight mistake on anything that wasn't quite medium size lol... I already fixed that about yesterday just working on the pdf.
