Heretic of The Seventh Circle
You’ve certainly established that like 3 people prefer a new class.Forget the Fighter. Keep it in the game as is. I'm pretty sure we've established that most of us want a separate class that fits a different narrative archetype (mythic martial) and is no more powerful or versatile than the current Wizard. Also from what I can tell could be in a splat book and not core and most of us wouldn't care either.
There is all kinds of resistance against this for unclear reasons.
It’s also quite well established that several people have no interest in such a thing, or are fine with it but don’t see it as a replacement for the fighter.
Might be best to have 2 or more threads, at this point. Especially since this thread has never been about building any new classes.
