Don't blame me for what my minions have done. Blame yourself for being the target.

I have no way of judging classes myself (especially when every class is basically compared to the triumvirate of wizard/cleric/druid), but it does sound like fun.

Also remind me to create some sort of "pre" or "code" tag which <I>should</I> allow one to modify text much like you would using Courier in Notepad (so, for example, a dozen spaces will show up within the formated text instead of being converted into a single space).

This class can't really be compared to those class mainly do to the fact it has to build traps and craft poisons, other wise it won't do any real damage. I designed this class to be a more of a strategic class in which the player has to think ahead.

Oh, I understand that; it's just that I believe the unwritten rule is, "a 20th-level Wizard takes over the world, a 20th-level Fighter retires and opens a tavern," because at some point anyone who isn't one of those top three (barring Sorcerer) just can't hold a candle unless the character is built extraordinarily well. This generally applies only to high level, as said classes do poorly at low-level and I believe 7th-14th level is considered the "sweet spot" where everyone can be useful.

With that BS out of the way, I still think it looks like a fun class, especially for NPC enemies.

(Alternative to [pre] tags, I could try and add HTML-like table tags, too)

I'm sort of hoping this class could be useful at any level. I personally feel that traps are under used by players, and some game masters. I feel like traps could defeat characters, except for maybe rogues and this class.

"Stupid wizard falling into a 20 foot pit trap of anti-magic field."

If I was to use this class as a NPC I would want to make sure the party had a rogue or else everyone would probably die.

It is kind of jerkish of the game to let only rogues defeat traps of certain dificulties, but I s'pose they needed something to do when they find their sneak attack doesn't work against their undead, plant, ooze, construct opponents (am I missing anything?).

It will not work on a high level sorcerer with a Aberrant bloodline. So I presume that is also to for creatures with the Aberrant type, and there is a low chance of it working on someone wearing armor with heavy fortification.

So after nearly five years I finally got around to making a "workable" table. XÞ
