Warlord, with all the changes made thus far (save changing White Raven Onslaught's name, but with the changes to the phrasing to make it a bit more comprehensible). I also attached the fancier version, which should look a bit nicer:

Warlord

....

.

I've added your Warlord to the PrRC v2.0 (out for editing right now). Thanks so much for the hard work; it will fill a big gap in the document!

Is there anything else in particular that people are looking for right now? I've got a little bit of time on my hands and so would be glad to help make something else if people are pleased with how the Warlord came out. One thing I'd been thinking was a write up of Tactics for each of the classes - this would give people the ability to make a wider variety of characters.

Edit: On the subject of original creatures, here is a low level troll suitable for 1st level PCs, while still guaranteeing a tough fight.

m Double Attack (standard; at will) reach 2, Perform two claw attacks, if both hit see follow up attack.
-Follow Up: m Rend (immediate reaction) If both claw attacks hit, +7 vs. Fortitude, 2d4+5 Damage and 5 Ongoing damage (save ends).

We started our "preliminary playtest" using the Pre-Release Rules Compilation, and found ourselves with a human fighter and a human wizard, so we made the following abilities to give them their extra at-wills:

Knockdown Smash
Fighter Attack 1
At-Will * Martial, Weapon
Requirement: You must be using a shield
Target: One creature
Attack: Melee vs Reflex
Hit: 1[W] + Str Damage, target knocked prone

Shocking Grasp
Wizard Attack 1
At Will * Arcane, Lightning, Implement
Standard Action Melee Touch (?)
Target: One creature
Attack: Int vs. AC
Special: Gain a +2 power bonus to hit if creature is wearing metal armor
Hit: Target takes 1d6 + Int damage and target is pushed 2 square

Thoughts?

Knockdown Smash seems too strong - compare to Piercing Strike, for instance, which targets Reflex... and that's it.

Cool sword, Delgar. Think I'll use that this Friday.

SKILL CHALLENGE

Careering Cart [DC 15:4/2] 50XP

Suddenly on main street a team of horses are spooked and they bolt. In the careering cart a young mother and child realise their predicament and cry for help. The cart is almost flipping and something must be done to stop the horses or the passengers will be thrown and killed.

Suggestions: Athletics can be used to intercept the cart on the first round. Then it's too late. Athletics while riding can be used throughout the encounter. Streetwise can be used to make a shortcut and intercept the cart next round. A successful passive Insight roll will tell the players the horses were spooked by a the glare from a nearby window. Magic might be used to calm the horses or to control the cart. Counts as 1 success per spell, if applicable.

Development: At 1 failure the mother is just barely hanging on to the cart whilst the child hangs onto her arm, mere inches from the ground. At 2 failures the passengers lose grip and crash into the ground, taking fall damage, possibly killing them.

Victory: At 4 successes the team of horses are calmed and the wagon stops. The woman and child are shocked and not terribly grateful. Days later the woman will approach the party and offer pertinent information on a current investigation.

I'm really digging Shocking Grasp - I think that's quite close to the original spell as well. Very cool. Potentially I'd even make it melee versus Reflex to represent that armour isn't much use against it.

Knockdown Strike is a bit too tough. I think someone had posted a Fighter At-Will called "Footwork" or something along those lines which let the fighter shift one square if the attack hit. What about something like this?

Shield Bash
Fighter Attack 1
Standard; at-will ♦ Martial, Weapon
Requirement: You must have a shield equipped to use this power.
Target: One Creature
Attack: Melee vs. AC
Hit: 1d6 + Strength modifier and the target is Dazed (save ends)
Special: If this character is using a Heavy Shield, upgrade the damage to 1d8. Magical bonuses to the character's shield apply to the attack and damage, but bonuses from weapons do not.

Potentially should be Weapon damage, but that doesn't seem like it should be influenced by hitting with a shield... still, it lets the fighter actually put out a condition which will help his allies and fits with the sword and shield theme.

Wow a skills challenge! No one's done that yet. Probly in optionsOCC til we get more

Great powers/monsters/etc folks...I'm almost done with classes and then it'll be time to redo everything else too!

Work is nice.

We just tried to come up with something on the fly. In retrospect, I really like the idea of Shocking Grasp using Melee vs. Reflex (since AC will always be higher).

We figured a wizard might want a power that gets people away from him or her, but without doing a ton of damage.

I like Shield Bash a lot better.

I'll post some more powers we tentatively came up with.

Wasn't there a druid a while back? I definitely need one. I'm trying to 're-create' (not the dreaded 'convert' word) my current group for playtesting 4e.

This is great work in this thread.

I'm afraid I've gotten behind on classes, but I think it was Malcolm who posted the druid a few pages back (I'm away from my files right now so can't tell you)

And thanks, I'm glad this is helping someone.

I'm drawing up some of the abilities my group thought of, and I was curious if anyone had any ideas of more alternative powers. It looks like some classes have "optional choices", such as the Rogue picking between focusing on Brawny or Trickster - does anyone have any ideas for similar things for other classes?

One I was thinking of is a number of powers that focus on two-handed weapons for Fighters, for example.

Those particular choices are at present called Tactics (since that's what the Rogue's choices were called). Every class definitely has at least two, but current the Rogue's and the Fighters are the only ones we know for definite. So here are a few fan-made ones. I couldn't, despite my best effort, come up with anything good at all for the Paladin or the Fighter using Sword and Shield which was in-line with what was already on the sheet. So, go to town:

Cleric
-Pious Scholar: When using the Arcana, History or Religion skills, you may apply your Wisdom modifier as a bonus to your skill checks.
-Penitent Warrior: You may use your Healing Words encounter ability a 2nd time during combat. (Presumed to be taken by the Cleric Demo character)

Fighter
-Sword and Shield: ???
-Two Handed Weapon: When using a two-handed weapon, you may apply x1.5 your Strength modifier to damage rolls.

Ranger
-Expert Marksman: Hunter's Patience; once per encounter you may add your Wisdom modifier to your ranged weapon attack roll.
-Two-Weapon Fighter: You may wield two weapons at the same time, and gain a +1 bonus to either attack or AC when doing so (you choose how to allocate this bonus at the start of your turn each round.)

Warlock
-Fey Pact: Misty Step; When you reduce an enemy under your Warlock's Curse to 0 or fewer hit points, you may teleport 3 squares as a free action.
-Devilish Pact: Devil's Due; When you reduce an enemy under your Warlock's Curse to 0 or fewer hit points, you regain 1d6 plus Charisma modifier hit points.

Warlord
-Battlefield Veteran: When using the Rally the Troops Power, the Warlord may add double his or her Charisma modifier.
-Brilliant Tactician: When the Warlord moves an ally, they may move an additional number of spaces equal to the Warlord's Intelligence modifier.

Wizard
-Wand: Wand of Accuracy; once per encounter while wielding a wand, you may apply your Dexterity modifier as a bonus to an attack roll.
-Orb: Orb of Power; once per encounter while wielding an orb, you may apply your Charisma modifier as a penalty to an opponent's saving throw against your spell effects.

Here's my take on the Reaper figure (posted on Ketery's thread) of the woman with the prow of a ship on her back. The thrulls could be any pirate zombie figure (if you can find one of those) as most of them were once sailors. (See my flavor text)

A woman killed for stowing away aboard a ship by being mast-headed (strapped to the bow of a ship) in cold climate and dying from exposure. Her spirit stays with the ship, haunting it until the crew go mad and wreck the ship, then she wreaks righteous vengeance against all sailors with her spirit-swords, walking across the sea. The ruined prow the the ship she died on still strapped to her back

Fitz just believe me when I say you haven't fallen behind. Classes are currently swamping me, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

I got some tweaking to do on the PHB2ClassesOCC, but it should be up by tomorrow or later tonight. The other two (New and PHB1) are about neck and neck, but shouldn't be long.

Druid

Role: Hybrid
Power Source: Primal
Key Abilities: Wisdom, Dex, Str

Armor Training: Hide
Weapon Proficiencies: Staves, Clubs, Bows
Bonus to Defenses: +1 Fortitude, +2 Will

HP per level gained: 5 HP/level
Healing Surges: 6 + Constitution Modifier

Trained Skills: Nature plus three others
Available Skills: Pick three skills from the following list: Athletics, Endurance, Heal, History, Intimidate, Perception, Religion, Stealth
Bonus Language: Druidic

Build Options: Feral Warrior, Protector of the Land, Master of Elements
Class Features: Gift of the Wild, Resist Nature’s Lure, Stride, Wild Shape

Druids are the safe-keepers of the land. They go unnoticed within their natural terrain thanks in no small part to their ability to look like the animals within the area. Ancient secrets passed down through generations by druidic circles help the druids in their ongoing fight against those who would defile the feywild.

As a Druid, you are generally close-lipped about your purpose and training. You get along with those who also understand the land and nature’s purpose. You’re at home in the grasslands, forests, and other natural environments.

In combat, you may wait for the perfect moment to strike, or you may utilize the land itself to gain an advantage.

Characteristics: Wild Shape will prove invaluable when in combat. Use it to gain an edge. Alternatively, you can manipulate the encounter with your connection to the natural environment around you.

Religion: Druids often worship their racial or a nature god. Druids within a circle will follow that patron, while those outside of such groups make their own choice of whom to follow.

Races: Any race who may prefer seclusion or has a strong will to protect the land prefers the druid class including elves, halflings, humans and orcs.

Feral Warrior:

Suggested Feat: Weapon Focus, (human feat: Human Perseverence)
Suggested Skills: Athletics, Intimidate, Nature, Stealth
Suggested At-Will Powers: Rake, Tear
Suggested Encounter Power: Rend
Suggested Daily Power: Pounce

Master of Elements:

Suggested Feat: Spell Focus, (human feat: Toughness)
Suggested Skills: Heal, History, Nature, Religion
Suggested At-Will Powers: Thorns, Heat
Suggested Encounter Power: Chill
Suggested Daily Power: Shillelagh

Protector of the Land:

Suggested Feat: Toughness (human feat: Human Perseverence)
Suggested Skills: Endurance, Heal, Nature, Perception
Suggested At-Will Powers: Tear, Stomp
Suggested Encounter Power: Pack Tactics
Suggested Daily Power: Easy Prey

All Druids share these class features.

Fey Gift: Druids take on the aspects of the animals that most closely relate to what they need done. Many do so to defend the land; others to stalk enemies like prey. Some use Wild Shape out of convenience, but rely more on their other talents to protect nature.

Choose one of the following options.

Feral Warrior: You gain a +1 class bonus to attacks and damage. You may apply your Wisdom modifier instead of Strength to damage rolls.

Master of the Elements: You may select and cast one additional non-wild encounter or daily talent at first level.
Protector of the Land: You gain a class bonus to your AC Defense equal to your Wisdom Modifier. This bonus does not apply in heavy armor.

The choice you make also provides bonuses to certain druid powers. Individual powers detail the effects (if any) your Wild Shape selection has on them.

Resist Nature’s Lure: Druids gain a +2 to all defenses against fey type creatures and primal powers.

Stride: Pick a natural setting, such as forest or cave. You ignore difficult terrain when in that setting. At level 11, you can shift as a minor action when in that terrain. Once per day at level 21, you can teleport a number of squares equal to your speed when in that terrain (this allows you to move through walls or fallen trees with ease; cannot be used in wild shape).

Wild Shape: At-will as a move action, you may change shape into an animal. This ability grants you bonuses to attacks, defenses, and sometimes movement types and/or speeds. While in wild shape, you can only use powers with the keywords weapon or wild. At level 1, you may begin progression in one of the following paths. Repeat this process at level 11, and again at level 21.

Combat Form:
You take on the aspects of predatory animals like the lion or the tiger.
While in Wild Shape, you gain a basic claw or gore attack which deals 1d8 + Str damage. The damage increases by one category for every 10 levels you gain with this form (1d8 becomes 1d10 becomes 2d6).

Defense Form:
Thick naturally tough skin coats your body, allowing you to better protect yourself and others.
While in Wild Shape, you gain a basic bite attack which deals 1d4 + Str damage. You also gain a +1 natural bonus to all defenses. You gain an additional +1 to all defenses for every 10 levels you gain with this form.

Travel Form:
Land, air, or sea; nobody compares to your mobility.
While in Wild Shape, you gain a basic slam attack which deals 1d6 + Str damage. You also gain a +1 natural bonus to your speed. For every 10 levels you gain with this form, you gain an additional +1 natural bonus to speed and may select a new type of movement from the following: Fly, Burrow, Climb, Swim, and Sprint (+2 to speed when charging/running).

Your powers, called talents, are instinctual by nature. You draw upon them through a combination of innate ability, focused training, and strong ties to the land or your heritage. Your powers often benefit from Strength of Body or Will.

First Post
Ok, the first of the new class OCCs is now up in the OP.

It is PHB2ClassOCC, and contains the Barbarian, Druid and Monk write-ups. Creators please look it over and let me know if any revisions or additions are needed.

The other two ClassOCCs are coming soon, just a little more to go.

With the new preview from wotc, we could almost get a 30 level progression out of a class... Hmm, I'll be looking into this tomorrow at work. :eek:) also, good to know what levels to classify powers now, so those of us who've been making them can start revamping and fine tuning. Yay!

*The Website* I'd like to pass this to any willing person at this point since it seems my friend has flaked on showing me the ropes with dreamweaver. Anyway, whomever has time to take this up, speak with our original guy (I think it was verys, right?)
