Can I have a board, please? I'd like to put up Metroid as Incarnum there, and rather than waiting until everything's perfect, I'll put my revisions to it there as well as they go. I'll also (hopefully) be making Mechas there.

"Sufficiently Advanced Technology is Compatible with Magic" please.
Added to logbook.

How much content would I need to justify a subboard?  I currently have 5 threads with plans for two more, and I'd love to do a major reorganization which would lead to 10 threads with what I have already (including the 2 new ones).  And, I'm sure I'll have more ideas in the future...

So, is this enough?  If so, can I have "Rituals 'R' Us"?

Seems okay. Should I move your existing stuff over? Do you want Garryl as an additional mod? :p

Hm... I think you can move them.  I'll probably gut the old ones into the new, reorganized threads and then delete 'em.

And sure, make Garryl a mod.

The old threads are:
Rituals and Ritual Feats
Ritualist
Bloodfire Seeker
Ritual Warrior
Ritual Expert
Ritual Mage
Ritual Prophet

Done. And the projects boards are in their own section now.

Hey, guys, it's bkdubs123, I'm back under the guise of Fiendslayer Ziegander. Anywho, Just wanna let you know I'll be trying to port over some of my homebrew material. Do you think I should just start making new threads for it here? It won't be an absolute flood of material, but it's probably like 15 threads or so of things I want moved here.

EDIT: Heh. Hehheh. I don't know what my password is over at BG anymore. So, I can't log in to port things over to here. Well... looks like I'll just start by bringing over some GitP stuff.

In between porting over stuff to my Homebrew Hideaway, I'll be working on something tentatively called the Spellblade, which will be an all-purpose magical melee class that uses invocations to enhance its melee attacks and exercise a little utility. It's something that's been nagging at the back of my mind for several days now. Any ideas would be helpful and appreciated.

Feel free to draw inspiration from my Soulknife remake.

I'm thinking of working with something like eldritch essences combined with a "stance" type mechanic for some self-buff ability. The basic idea is a lightly-armored, d8 HD, melee class with at-will magical add-ons to their melee attacks for extra damage and/or rider effects combined with at-will self-buff capabilities. Ideally, unlike the Warlock, whatever I call this class wouldn't need to choose whether to gain the buff "invocations" or the essence add-ons, but would gain both in a fitting progression more similar to a martial initiator.

Right now, I'm considering possibly dividing the "invocations" into "disciplines," either five different disciplines or six (Earth, Water, Wind, Fire, Wood, and Metal; or Cold, Electricity, Fire, Light, and Shadow).

Future projects include a new Paladin and Ranger revision, a new Monk revision, and a Ravnica D&D conversion with a base class for each of the ten guilds (Azorius Logistician, Boros Legionnaire, Dimir Secretkeeper, Golgari Graveborne, Gruul Bloodbreaker, Izzet Mathmagican, Orzhov Ghostwayman, Rakdos Hellraiser, Selesnya Convoker, and Simic Visionary).

Prime, can I have a subforum for the Homebrew Optimization Contest series?

I'd be honored if my works made it in there at some point once it's up.  :love ;)

Okay, HOC board is up. Could probably use a description but I wasn't sure what to use. Likewise, wasn't sure if mods had been agreed on yet.

Thanks!  We'll come up with a description soon, and I'm ironing out the committee membership.

    • The Spellshaping Codices (Homebrew Board)

Hrm.  Feel free to toss this one out, but I'm an organization freak.  Might it make more sense, rather than simply lumping all of the "Big Projects" together, to have multiple subforums?  Not one for each project, of course, that would bloat too quickly.  Basically something like:

Big Projects
  • Oslecamo's Improved Monster Classes
Campaign Settings and World-Building
  • Eberron in Pathfinder
  • Verold
Magic, Mysticism, and Miscellanea
  • Rituals 'R' Us
  • The Spellshaping Codices
  • Sufficiently Advanced Technology is Compatible With Magic
System Revamps and Variants
  • Realmz Project
  • T5: After All, Gandalf Did It
Uncle Kittie's Catastrophically Capacious Cache of Carefully Crafted and Calculatedly Comical Concoctions
  • Uncle Kittie's Cat Burglar
  • Uncle Kittie's Guide to the Orient
  • Uncle Kitties Hopefully Humorous Guide to Abominations
  • Uncle Kittie's Unnecessary Revisions
  • Uncle Kittie's Spuriously Designed Prestige Classes

That would put us at six subforums, including the Homebrew Optimization Contests.  They'd be a lot more intuitive to navigate, and they won't get clogged as quickly if people start putting out large products.

(Oslecamo's monster classes were left in a "Big Project" board because...honestly...it's a big project.  Not sure how else to categorize it.)
“Hast thou not felt in forest gloom, as gloaming falls on dark-some dells, when comes a whisper, hum and hiss; savage growling sounds a-near, dazzling flashes around thee flicker, whirring waxes and fills thine ears: has thou not felt then grisly horrors that grip thee and hold thee?”

On a different note, can I have a sub board for the Magipunk Campaign Setting?

Sure, what do you want to call it?
