Speaking of deaths. Ferguson, the town where an officer gunned down an unarmed african-american student named Michael Brown in the street -- and surprise surprise the police justification for their actions yet again starkly contrasts with eye-witnesses testimony -- has been declared a non-flight zone and placed under martial law as decades of frustration has begun bubbling over. Journalists are being shut down, kicked out of town, arrested, and fired upon, by government paramilitary forces.

Yes, some locals are rioting. Reports from the ground seem to indicate tat as largely been in response to the unwarranted flood of heavily armed riot and suppression squads brought in by the police following their abysmal handling of the initial shooting.

Makes me wonder when the Second American Civil War is going to finally kick off in earnest.

The kill bots are on strike because we can only afford to give them a single laser. Not one each. Just a single laser that all of them have to share.

Well, the fact that it's a 1:1 ratio of power supply to table has a not inconsequential effect on our quarterly budget. You remember last what happened when it ent into the red.

Pretty cool class, I must say. Lots of cool stuff, and it really comes together to convey the concept well.

My only major critique is that this should probably have something to address the possibility of other methods of becoming undead being in the game. I imagine even if I hadn't made an undead species, somebody else would have eventually, or if not a species perhaps a Prize, a different class, a specialty, or a Species feat.

The class already treats undeath as a prize -- which when you think about it, is probably by far the best way to handle access to the type. Whether it's a curse is dependent on setting and what you accompany the type with but by and large it's going to be woohoo time for a player when they gain it.

Getting a prize slot back is an option if you're already undead  I guess, but the class isn't really intended for the already undead, it's for situations where undeath is unusual and dramatic.

Quote
Even given awareness of this class, I imagine sooner or later people would start to get tired of the only option for playing an undead character being a vengeful combatant class and want a way of playing other kinds of undead without relying on multiclassing and eating an action die penalty for doing so. In fact, come to think of it, I've heard that the Reaper class in Spellbound will make you undead...granted, I don't imagine that multiclass would be at all a good idea, but this at least confirms the general principle that it's not realistic to assume this class will always be the only option for gaining the undead type.

Reaper doesn't grant the undead type until level 11, which is a hell of bigger investment than anything the Revnant is asking in return for giving up an AD if you want to multi-baseclass while undead.

Technically you could pick up Risen at Sage 4 using cross-class training if the GM was okay with the idea

Quote
So, yeah, there should either be an alternative level 1 benefit for if you're already undead, or a "non-undead" prereq to the class (possibly also coupled with some prohibitions on gaining the undead type later or something).

As noted above, not so much. It's not like the GM has to let a player enter the class if they don't feel it fits.

Quote
Also, just curious, any particular reason why plants can become dhampires after level 1 but nobody else can?

No idea. I may have just cut'n'pasted a feat structure and forgotten to edit the old text out.

I've seen it suggested elsewhere that the main bulk of it should be released as Call to Arms supplements, but I think that's going too far. Putting out the preview on DrivethruRPG/OneRPG for some nominal amount however, might that be an option?

Might I suggest Baden once more search the dwarves' rooms while they're at dinner to see if he can find out what was in that container Barnabus had with him in the morning?

And who else is good with locks? Because I want to start pilfering from the apothecary for supplies that might be eye-brow raising if purchased openly

I'm not aware of your costs of course, either for the book itself or the various physical awards, but that looks more likely to let you keep the funds you're trying to raise where you need them than before.

Even at the most generous assumption of 6 points, you can't take away the error penalty and even start to hope for a balanced feat.

This is why you have the absolute core essence of the concept in the feat, and then you have 5 more points to build with in the specialty.

Elven Vampire
Cunning Mummy
Dwarf Ghoul

Etc.


Incorporeal meanwhile is one of the most powerful types in the game and belongs in its own feat -- one that absolutely restricts you from corporeal action until you start investing in expert classes and further feats.
