    Advanced Player's Guide questions

    I couldn't wait for my preorder, so I snagged the PDF. It's marvelous, but of course there will be questions. Here's mine -

    Any way for a Martial Artist to gain an enhancement bonus on their Chi powers? I don't see any reference to any sort of implement. Troubadors have a similar problem, since they don't have any published implements, but other magic items can be reskinned.

    EDIT - What paragon paths does a Spellbinder qualify for? EDITEDIT - Already answered in the book. You win this round, Marmell!

    Yeah, that's about the biggest omission, I'm afraid. When I first designed the classes, I'd planned to talk a little bit about magic items as regards the new classes, but in all the back-and-forth with the companies, and several levels of redesign, it totally slipped off my radar.

    Essentially, I suggest making gloves or fist wraps available as magic "weapons." They add their enhancement bonus to attack and damage, but they only work with unarmed attacks. As far as the troubadour, I suggest "reskinning" staffs as standards, and orbs as instruments.

    Hmmm, items for Martial Artists and Troubadours. Seems like a good opportunity for a web enhancement download...

    Not a bad idea, really. I'm not sure when/if I'd have time for it, but it's something to consider...

    Oh, as far as the reskinning, I'd use holy symbols for the druid's fetishes.

    But yeah, it was definitely a mistake for me to neglect a magic item section for this book--at least one giving reskinning advice, if not offering actual new items. Sorry, guys; I've never put together a book quite like this before.

    I stuck to the hard copy version and can't wait to get this in my hands as soon as the USPS can manage.

    I haven't, actually, since A) I haven't been running (though I'm about to start), and B) Most of my group aren't into the "grim-n-gritty" style.

    But I'd love to do so.
