    Both the prestige classes seem pretty good, but both also seem like they should be 5-level classes.

    They are mostly needed to make members of their respective groups have abilities in common, but that could be done by just matching the feat and skill choices of fighters and rogues.

    I'm just so into the 10 level classes, it didn't even occur to do it otherwise. I'll redo them this weekend and see what they look like. Good idea, thanks.

    i don't think you will

    i think you're quintaphobic

    haven't you noticed how neither of the classes have any special abilities at level 5?


    5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5


    So THAT'S what an invisible barrier looks like!

    That's ten 5's. Just in case you didn't know. 25 fives and you coulda' turned him. Even better, 3125 5's.

    Just glancing over the Hawkmask class. Wouldn't the bonus to Intimidate checks be due to the reputation of mask wearers, and the bonus to disguise a circumstance bonus because it's... a mask?

    So then, wouldn't this ability be wearing the mask without risking imminent and painful death? Or perhaps imminent and painful torture and later death? Perhaps anyone can put on a mask for a +2 bonus, but only the Hawkmasks are studied enough in shoving their masked face at people, talking softly, and fingering their daggers to get the full +4.

    You have a preference for which list I raise these grave issues?

    It's the mask and reputation that goes along with the mask that gives this bonuses. I really didn't follow what you were trying to say in the other paragraph. The revised classes should be done tonight.

    Stepson Prestige Class (5 level prestige class)

    The Stepsons are an elite mercenary force that Tempus is the leader of. There is a lot of camaraderie in the group. There are two types the Sword Welders and their Shield mates.

    HD: d10

    BAB: 5+
    Feats: Power Attack, Cleave, Weapon Focus (Any), Weapon Specialization (Any)

    Or

    Skill Points: 2 + Int modifier

    Base Attack Bonus: As Fighter
    Saves: As Fighter

    Coordinated Fighting 1: At level one the pair of Stepsons (Swordwelders and the Shield Mate) can fight from the same square without hindering each other. Also, Shield Mate may use a full round action to also provide his shield bonus to the Sword Mate.

    Coordinated Fighting 2: At level two the Swordwelder now gets either a +2 attack bonus or +2 dodge bonus whenever the Shield Mate performs a full round action as in Coordinated Fighting 1.

    Coordinated Fighting 3: At third level as above except the bonus is +4. They can also perform coordinated fighting when within 5 feet of each other.

    Coordinated Fighting 4: At fourth level the duo can now work so well together they get an extra partial action once a round. Only one of them can use this extra partial action.

    Coordinated Fighting 5: At fifth level they can now fight as one. When one uses the dodge feat, they both get the bonus. When one uses the Expertise feat, they both get the bonus. If they attack the same foe, they are considered flanking towards is. They each roll initiative, but can use the others roll if they choose.
