RE: Dorkfest 2017
Archer, Berserker, Fighter, and Summoner classes are done. In terms of mechanical overlap, you could have 2 Archers, 2 Berserkers, 3 Fighters, and 2 Summoners, and still have each of them be unique.

Not that I'm saying you should. There's four more classes yet to come, after all, it's just that if two players both have their hearts set on playing Archers or whatever, it doesn't have to be a problem. (If three people absolutely must play Archers then some overlap would be unavoidable.)

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

One more restriction: The combination 'Elf' and 'Archer' will trigger the rule that the character must be named 'Hans'.

Well ain't that cute... but it's wrong!


Anyway, Monks are now also done. You could have two of them in a party without overlap (or three but then they have some overlap at level 10).

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

RE: Dorkfest 2017
In all honesty, letting preferences be known is not a bad idea. If nobody even wants to play a Rogue then I'm not going to modify/design a Rogue, for example. And if people have questions or suggestions for things, now's a good time for those as well.

I'll try to get some basic setting info done, so you're not entirely blind going into this.

Fast stabby. That's my preference.

So let's call it a Rogue Rat Beastman Grin

Cool.

That makes the "pre-order" party a centaur archer, a ratman rogue, a wolf berserker, and some sort of wizard. Very nice.

My first preference would've been centaur archer aswell, but i suppose that is sorta taken. So my next favorite class (and in the computerised game harder to keep up with levelling) would be priest. I guess fox sounds exotic enough for me.

By the sacred laws of our ancestors, you are allowed to challenge Jeroen to single combat for the right to play this centaur archer.

All jokes aside, it is possible to have two centaur archers in the party. There will be some very small mechanical overlap (the choice of race gives a default benefit, which you'd share) but besides that you can be unique if you work together. You might be siblings or rivals.

On the other hand... having a Priest is not a bad idea. Wink

We'll just let the priest deliver the killing blows when the enemies are at 1hp. That's what, triple the xp? Wink

Just cast "boost" on the party at the start of the first turn. 5% of a lvl worth of XP for each ally boosted.

RE: Dorkfest 2017
So I was the 3rd thinking of centaur archer. According to the laws of our ancestors that means a ffa, right?
I think I'll divert to either a fighter or one that summons fighters.

Maybe we should call upon the ancient laws of Kanly... oh wait different universe. Still, I would be just as happy as a priest. However, double teaming sounds like good fun too. We'll see.

what does the summoner summon? angels, perhaps? Grin i'm thinking an elf summoner could be nifty, but i'd first like to know more about the class.

I side with Ben. I was thinking in the lines of steampunk influence: a tinkerer that quickly fabricates short-lived machines to perform certain tasks. But this is based on my current interpretation of the summoner class.

In the Shining Force series you Summon Dao, Neptune, Apollo or Atlas. These giant genie-like creatures then attack your foes.

Examples:

Neptune:

Apollo:

And Atlas:

You get the idea Smile

I don't know if that is the same though. That's up to Arik Grin

RE: Dorkfest 2017
Summoners are spellcasters, along the same lines as Wizards and Priests. Some of their spells are a lot like any other ordinary spells, others do actually summon elementals and such.

Refluffing them as steam-powered stuff might be possible. Instead of fireballs and earth elementals you'd have bombs and mini-steamwork robots. Might have some interesting story potential too.

(Also, is it just me or does the Dao have tiny little baby arms?)

I'm diggin the steam punk tinkerer idea. I'll probably go for a refluffed human summoner. (If it doesn't conflict too much with the story/setting/vibe.)

That should be fine.


E:

Alright, let's take another tally.

Jeroen: centaur archer
Robin: beastman rogue
Melchior: beastman berserker
Jelte: wizard
Jasper: human "summoner" (steam-powered)
Mark: Fighter or Summoner, probably
Hyung: beastman priest (or perhaps an archer)
Ben: Elf summoner? Summoners sure seem popular!
Mike: ?
Wolf: ?
