Talk:Burattinaio (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
This has got to be one of the best, most innovative ideas (in my opinion) I've found so far. I look forward to seeing the Burattinaio finished. On that note, I have a few questions about some of the wording. My first question is about the creation of the marionette. I believe I understand the marionette similar to a familiar or psi crystal, but might be confused about that. Without the Craft skill, how does the Burattinaio replace a marionette? There is mention of tools (I'm assuming wood carving tools), but nothing about whether it is a magic process (like summoning a new familiar) or if it's actually a crafting process requiring a specific amount of materials (like the 100g for a familiar or psi crystal, etc.).
My second question is the about the dexterity of the Burattinaio controlling marionettes. If a Burrattinaio has more than two arms (like the siarrans or through the spell Girallon's Blessing), would that Burrattinaio be capable of controlling a higher number of marionettes simultaneously (within the limit of his Charisma modifier)?
Finally, my last question is in regards to the strings of the marionettes (and mannequin). You mentioned that they cannot be seen by the naked eye, and are so soft that running between the Burattinaio and the marionette does not affect the actions of the constructs. If someone cast True Seeing, would that person be capable of seeing the strings? If not, what would it take to see them? Also, if the strings can be affected in any way, what would be required to break/cut/destroy the strings (and the impending results to the marionette thereafter)?
I'm already a huge fan of the class, and anticipate trying it out when everything is complete.
- Thanks for the overview. Guess I overlooked a couple of important factors. The cost of creating a new marionette and strings will be added to the class shortly. As for the multiple arms, I would say that, for the purposes of roleplay, the Burattinaio would use dedicate (starting at first level) one hand for each marionette and use his other hands to manipulate the finer details, like the mouth or eyes.

Power - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it is fairly well balanced.--Uhnaneemoos 07:08, 24 April 2011 (MDT)
Wording - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because everything made sense as I read it or quickly cleared up any questions I had. --Uhnaneemoos 07:08, 24 April 2011 (MDT)
Formatting - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because it is very well formatted but some sections are unfinished or left over and there is very, very little linking done in the descriptions. --Uhnaneemoos 07:08, 24 April 2011 (MDT)
Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because the flavor is delectable. --Uhnaneemoos 07:08, 24 April 2011 (MDT)
