Here's a free bonus class for M&M before the game is even published.

That Janissary looks cool, but doesn't seem like it plays well with others.

Yeah, it's a bit hard to see how you could get much practical use out of it, unless everyone was playing one.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
The only thing missing is that the Janissary should cause fear in opponents who follow the True Faith. Their historical prototypes seriously freaked-out Christian troops who faced them. They were seen as being like changelings; stolen sons who returned as ferocious killers in service to the enemy.

But, yeah, seriously hard to be one in a party that isn't all Janissaries.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
I just realized having Con and Wis as both HP stats makes it more costly to choose either as a dump stat.

For character, I'm toying with the idea of a half-orc something, probably ranger, but I'm curious to see the way classes/sub-classes and half-orc race are represented in flavor, traits, and advances etc (like the elf preview). Of course it'd also be fun to go with illusionist.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
I like the new preview up today about use of constructs (armies, domains, ships, etc) in PCs' stories at higher level play. I always like that 'co-curricular' stuff involved in my PC's individual adventures.

I like how range seems to scale easily, my previous lingering questions notwithstanding. I have some questions about the abstraction of construct activity vs PC activity, especially with the Independent advance and helping actions, but I'm sure it works out.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
I really like the new preview too! I've always liked the idea of pc's earning strongholds, companions, ships, etc.
I like how it gives you something more to work towards and earn than just a few more class abilities or HP.
The example of the ship and Mage vs the demon tower is really evocative.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
It looks like we have 1 week to wait till we can finalize characters and begin playing.

Yes, I had considered starting higher, but since we will all be learning the rules as we go, I figure level 1 makes things easier.
I may go with a speedier XP system to get through the first few levels if it looks like it's going to take forever to level.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
I have to run some errands, then will dig into the reading!
Anyone who purchases, feel free to make your character.
If you don't purchase, one of us who do can share info.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
No worries dude, I have to read the game myself. I'm also reading the Fate Toolkit and playing the new Animal Crossing.
I should have read Character Creation by Thur though.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
I've just given it a quick read-through. Nice! I'm really liking the ideas behind these rules. A little OSR, a little Dungeon World; a very sweet spot.

I'll try to have my character up by tomorrow.

Re: OOC: The OOC Tavern!
Grimm, how open are you to custom sub-classes?
