From D&D Wiki
PrC or Base Class?
Is this a PrC or a Base Class? You had 20 levels in the dlpc, and have a section for epic, however the table and the name both imply PrC. So, which of these two choices is this? --Green Dragon 20:58, 6 May 2007 (MDT)
- I'm not sure how it implies a base class. It's meant to be a prestige class. The only difference between the two is that prestige classes have requirements, right? --Daniel Draco 07:41, 7 May 2007 (MDT)
- Two reasons why I was confused and one was based on my ignorance. One is that it has an epic section—I did not know that was added to the preload yet, sorry. The other thing was that in the dlpc it said this was 20 levels long. That threw me off. Anyway, I see that it is a PrC now and sorry for the confusion. --Green Dragon 16:31, 7 May 2007 (MDT)
- You're probably right, I'll change that now. This was one of my very first homebrew classes, so it's no surprise it needs revising. --Daniel Draco 15:06, 11 June 2007 (MDT)
This class has very little fluff. The class abilities are not well defined or are partially realized. Mechanically this is a confused class. Is it a melee fighter or a spellcaster? Why does this class have full BaB and only half spellcasting progression? This is furthermore confuzzled by having a mix of ranged and melee abilities. Honestly this class makes a much better fighter or thief/rogue because of the self-centered darkness effect, and with just a level 1 dip into sorcerer, you could access 2 shadow spells to fulfill the requirements.--RockJockey (talk) 15:36, 13 February 2015 (MST)
Shadow Flare, that name doesn't work. Flare = a sudden brief burst of bright flame or light. Ability needs to be renamed, perhaps 'Shadow Burst' or 'Shadow Slash'. The way the ability is written could be edited and parsed down, might as well copy paste the wording for Smite from the Paladin class. A melee ability in a 'spellcaster' class doesn't really make a whole lot of sense.
Shadow affinity is interesting, but does it affect attack and damage rolls? Pairs well with Shadow Projection.
Shadow Projection makes the caster want to get close to their enemies.
Shadow bolt (Sp): Lackluster damage.
Shadow shift (Sp): Teleporting spells are nifty.
