PostSubject: Vice of Contempt   Fri Jul 01, 2016 6:54 am

Inspired by the thread in general discussion I decided to turn this vice I've been using for my NPCs into a full fledged character option for community review. I had to use an image editor to piece it together and Iused a monster block from masterplan to actually build it. It was also 5 AM so my judgement might have been impaired a bit.

An Interesting concept, on the first read through. Has a bit of PHB2 Avenger stylings with a Bad Guy view point and it feels like a combination of Batman and the Punisher, to use Comic Book terms. I'll have to look at it again when I'm not half asleep due to fireworks and such.

Thanks it looks like I didn't do that great a job using my image editor to piece together the stat block.

A bit more important than whether or not you think its 'unique' is if you think its 'balanced'

Well, it looks at least pretty close to balanced. I like the Spirit of Contempt ability, though it does seem slightly broken when used by a Dragonborn with the right Gear.

The Hostile Mercy power is the kind of unique or odd power that can be broken too, with the right gear. There is a Waist item that gives a high resist to all damage while the wearer it at 0HP or fewer, for example. But it will not happen until level 22 and is a small area, so it is in the balance threshold of the Epic tier so I think it might work out.

"Sow Strife" Is a very effective daily, the kind that can Screw up a whole fight, if used at the right time. Any creature with Threatening Reach is Efed up by this SO MUCH it wouldn't be funny.

I find that 'the right gear' is capable of breaking nearly everything. :p But thanks for your feedback. You said 'effective' but not overpowered with sow strife. So I guess you were just remarking on it. If I get a second opinion approving this custom class I'll consider it approved.
