For instance, 9th level Paladin getting clerical spells at that point, or "ad&d1 style ranger getting MU spells at "name" level. Quantifying how much that is worth vs. the level it acquired on.


My Spell Caster system makes that easier to determine, as the limited range of Spell Levels cost less than an Intermediate or Major Caster.

How many "areas of knowledge", speed of % progression, etc.... or the Confessor ability (I would avoid that one as an option anyone could build classes with, but that is just my opinion).
I'm not including all of the Bardic percentile Skills, either, so folks would still have to determine the cost per percentage (after a 1/10th cost base value) to increase those non-listed percentile ('Technical') skills.

Regarding the Confessor, considering that it is an author's IP, I wouldn't use it by that name, but, I do have a Psychic Tracking skill, which could be used as in comparison for determining cost.

I've had a question about availability of this supplement. Are you close to releasing something? Our usual procedure is to release early and often... it helps a lot if an author suddenly becomes unavailable. A new author can come along and take it from there.

Should this be moved to General until/unless any work is submitted?

So sorry to get to this so late.
I'm caught up in other things.

I think it makes sense to move it to General until I have something more to show you. I have a lot of this, but I'm not sure it is ready for general consumption.

Thanks,
