Re: New Class - The Warden

Thanks for all the suggestions, I've incorporated some of these and updated the links to R3 in the first post. Here is a summary of changes: - Changed HD progression from a fighter's d8 per level to d6 per level, but with 2d6 at first level. This gives Wardens a chance at a few extra HP at 1st and 2...

Re: New Class - The Warden

Lots of gpod comments, I'm traveling this week and can't commemt fully now. But take a look at the 1st issue of the brave the labyrinth zine (pwyw at rpgnow), that is what I based the warden's animal companions gaining HD on.

Re: New Class - The Warden

Thanks for your input, this is really helpful. I looked at the combat options supplement, and I like the weapon specialization table. While the +1 bonus is simple, it does not scale with the PC level. So I think that is good to just copy as-is, and has the benefit of being a standard option. The nat...

Re: New Class - The Warden

I've cleaned this up and made a few changes, I'm not sure of the proper versioning procedure - do I bump the files to r2 after any such changes? To briefly summarize - I bumped up the XP requirements, removed the extra HP, and clarified the surprise bonuses (they must be alone to get a bonus to surp...

Re: New Class - The Warden

I don't understand the HD progression, at first level I roll 1d8+5, at 2nd I get to roll 1d8-1? BFRPG does not make use of HD re-roll per level. Thanks, I missed that one. LIke AD&D Rangers, I meant for some extra HP at low levels, I'm not sure the best way to do that, or maybe it is not needed giv...

New Class - The Warden

So I had the day off today, and wanted to convert a class I created originally for S&W Whitebox to BFRPG. Here is my first attempt. The Warden is sort of a Ranger, without spell-casting and with non-magical healing skills, along with animal companions and a few other abilities. I think they would re...

Re: Welcome to the Basic Fantasy RPG Forums!

Hi Everyone- I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself in this thread. I gamed as a kid in the late 70's/80's - mostly 1e AD&D, then had a long hiatus and got back into it with my kids around 2009. At the time S&W Whitebox fit the bill, but since then I've been having a blast playing and DMing l...

Re: Turn Undead discussion on DF

Hi All- I'm new here, but I posted on this topic on DF, so I thought I would heed Chris' suggestion to move the conversation here. I like the BFRPG undead table, I can echo some of the other posts that it has the effect of making undead much more fearsome at even at mid-levels, forcing players to us...
