While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Scarred Lands Class books.
« on: June 24, 2011, 07:11:47 pm »
I snagged the Scarred Lands class books years ago and have recently been looking through them again.  I'm wondering what kind of results people found with some of the options in play.

In particular I've been looking at the Nine Stings Master PrC (short sword focused ftr) from the Ftr and Barb book, and the Angel Blooded (celestial related Sorcerer PrC from the Wiz/Brd/Sor book)
"Dr.Who and CoC are, on the level of what the characters in it do, unbelievably freaking similar. The main difference is that in Dr. Who, Nyarlathotep is on your side, in the form of the Doctor."
-RPGPundit, discovering how BRP could be perfect for a DR Who campaign.

Take care Nothingland. You were always one of the most ridiculously good-looking sites on the internets, and the web too. I'll miss you.  -"Derek Zoolander MD" at a site long gone.

I have those books, but I never used anything from them in actual play.

I thought that the fluff on the classes was pretty good stuff, giving insights into how different parts of the Scarred Lands view certain classes and their activities. Wish I could be of more help. Perhaps Nightfall will chime in with any experiences.

Unfortunately I can't speak to actual game play since I generally was more interesting in RUNNING Scarred Lands than I was playing it.

That being said Angel blooded Pr-class is pretty decent. Master of the Nine Tail Stings...I can't honestly speak to but Angel Blooded did look fine and didn't overtly change much.

If you're asking me which books are my favorite, probably the ones I worked on. (I did a VERY brief stint on a couple spells in Player's Guide to Wizards, Bards and Sorcerers and then a few Pr-classes in Player's Guide to Rangers and Rogues. Plus one monster in CC 3.)

Which parts of Rangers and Rogues offhand? :)

Total agreement, I've been rather tempted to hit players with a magic portal before.... :D

Blood Sea Pirate, Brother of the Crimson Temple and Trapmaster are semi-my creations. (At least the descriptions are. Especially "Bloody Yardarm Thesk".)
