Hero Classes At Lower Levels
« on: 21. December 2016, 08:13:17 »

So, checking some of the French translated stuff, I notices that with the current rules, few people get to make the build they want with their characters. Now, there is a French translation play aid which helps with this problem (but I'm not too impressed with it).

So I thought of maybe lowering the level at which a Hero Class could be selected.

At first, I aimed for 6th level, as a throwback to the old D&D 3.X prestige classes which could be taken around 4th to 8th level depending on prerequisite and build. But then I realized that the first 4 or 5 levels in :ds: are earned rather quickly, so I changed my aim for level 8 instead. I also assumed that having some talents become available 2 levels earlier rather than 4 levels earlier is probably less unbalanced...

So, without further ado, here are the rules.

Level     Hero Class
8             —
9            4000
10          5300
11          6700
12          8200
13          9800
14          11500
15          13300
16          15200
17          17200
18          19600
19          22200
20          25000

I like this idea, better than having a talent for using a hero talent.
Perhaps you should submit it in the german forum.

My german is pretty much inexistent, and I don't really want to offend them with an half-assed translation using google translate...
