So, I got an e-mail from someone (and I think I know who) asking if I can share my Combat Expansion with them, whatever that meant. Changelog saw this and got jealous, and to make a long story short, I had to make an update or it'll leave, and I'd have no means of posting what I changed...

I was also inspired by Xel's comments and proceeded to make super weak items...

  • Added the following items: Close Quarters Combat Gloves, Training Blade, Clothes of the Hopeful, Beggar's Coat, Rigged Coin, and Loaded Die...
  • Toxic-Tipped Knife's poison now lasts until the end of your next turn, instead of the end of the target's next turn...
  • Quick Draw Holster can now only be used once per battle, but it can now swap combat talents as well as weapons, and does both of these as a free action...
  • Some unimportant rewording here and there...

Changelog dresses up as a tree at Halloween...

  • The Good Stuff now heals for 4d4 instead of 2d4 in order to compete with the Grace talents, as The Good Stuff can't be used on unconscious creatures...
  • Cider Keg now heals for 3d4 instead of 2d4...
  • Clothes of the Hopeful now costs 1000 gold instead of 500 gold, but now gives Resist 1 and a +1 bonus to saving throws as well...
  • Added a new 500 Gold Armour Item: Untrustworthy Shield...

Currently, I'm working on a new class which uses forms. Turns out making interesting forms is a lot harder than I thought. Here's a sneak peak on it so I can get some feedback on the current ideas...

*Class Name Pending*:
[+5] *Name Pending*
For the rest of combat, whenever you spend pips, you also pay HP equal to double the pips paid. You may use this talent only once per battle.

[0] Domain of Luck - Minor Utility
You conjure a Lucky Form onto yourself. You may assume your normal form as a minor action. While in the Lucky Form you cannot use your normal combat talents. Instead you may use the combat talents below.
[+2] Spin the Wheel - Standard Utility
Roll a d6. Based on the roll, you or target ally gains the following.
1-2 +3 bonus to next saving throw.
3-4 3 HP.
5-6 1 Pip.
[-1] Flip the Coin - Interrupt Utility
Trigger - A coin is flipped and you dislike the result.
Effect - You may reflip the coin and take the second result.
[-3] Roll the Die - Interrupt Utility
Trigger - A creature rolls a die and you dislike the result.
Effect - You may reroll the die and choose which of the two results are used.

[-2] Quick Shift - Interrupt Utility
Trigger - You return to your normal form.
Effect - You may use one of your [0] form combat talents as a free action.

[-4] *Name Pending* - Standard Utility
For the rest of the battle or until you fall unconscious, whenever you begin your turn within a form, you gain 1d6 HP and a pip.

So does Warlord Banner's effect apply only to Free actions or things that grant allies extra actions?

Currently only the stuff that gives free actions...

Ok, well that's possibly a bit overpriced then. Also I suggest one for the other version (mostly just so I didn't give Xel a completely screwed up build). Having discussed the way things are priced, that one should be coming out to 5000. But, you'd have to ask thematthew for the exact details on why.

Maybe. Maybe I'll just take your suggestion and make that the only Warlord Banner. Let me think about it...

So, now that Dan has said that Temp HP counts for taking damage (no idea why...) you might want to change the wording on Channel. As I assume you were meant to be able to combine Channeling and Samurai's Heart.

Eh, not really. Especially since you don't want to be hit while channelling, and some of the Samurai's Heart specials punishes enemies for not attacking you...

I have changed channelling to "when you lose HP" though...

I was mostly thinking of Light Show. Where you're already telling enemies to attack you. And in general Channeling is an encouragement for enemies to attack you.

I guess if you look at it like that. It's a good way to draw attention to yourself...

Question: How would you guys feel if I made items that improves or changes Special Moves? For example, having a trinket which makes Healer's Grace's "make a saving throw" on its d8 and/or d10 change into "save against all conditions", or a weapon which allows you to select targets for Derpy's Lightning d8 and/or d10 special, or even changing how they work so that perhaps Derpy's Lightning 12 Crit allows you to choose a combat talent you or an ally brought into combat, and use it immediately with only paying half the pip cost, as opposed to a random talent you've brought in with no cost. Is that something you guys would like me to explore, and if so, how should I do it? Should each special move get one item that improves one of their special features, one item which improves everything of a special move, or a set of three items which all improve one feature each?

It may work but prices are going to be a pain...

I think that 1 item for each special would be best(the second one you listed)...

On the other hand I think one set of three items per each special would be better so you're not paying for stuff you don't want.
