Gifted Ones; Aliens, Mutants and Psychics

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.50

Dismissed from their homes...

Outcasts in a world full of outcasts...

Coming to grips with the powers dormant inside them...

Ex-men and women of society, they now embrace their differences...

They are... the Gifted Ones. 

Mutants. Psychics. And yes, Aliens. They are already mostly present in the Forgotten Realms, they are just labeled Sorcerers, Mystics and Githyanki. 

But if you have always wanted to play a real superhero. One with limitations not based on magic but using the same system, then the Gifted One is for you. 

Choose your powers with ability points. Flex them with mod points. Buff your stats and be the super-strong or super-fast hero you have always wanted to be. Throw a little flaw in there for flavor. 

Where being a Sorcerer or Mystic limits you to the spells you can pick, being a Gifted One opens up the broad stroke of imagination in being able to not worry about spell components or arcane foci. This power comes from within. 

SO, check it out! This has never been playtested before and is open for comment, critique and change; other than that already has been done thanks to the Reddit community.

I am not terribly sure how I feel about this class. While it is definitely really cool, there are some things about it that make me feel uncomfortable.
1) With the exception of a few mechanical and thematically changes, this class is literally a combination of the Sorcerer and the Warlock classes.
2) Not only do they have this thing called minor feats (which are sort of like the Warlock's Invocations), but they can get them every time they level up. Some of them are even similar to feats that are already in the game. Granted there are some new ones that do go with the theme of mutants, aliens and psychics.
3) On top of that they have this thing called metapowers, which basically function like the metamagic from sorcerers.
4) Instead of having spell slots for their powers they have what is referred to as a "power pool," which basically functions like mana from your other rpg games. On top of that when they run out of points in their power pool they can still use their powers,...See more

Hey Robbie G, thanks for the feedback! I created this class on a whim because I wanted to have a mutant character class, but didn't feel like any of the other classes already in the game did it for me, including the Mystic. I ended up putting this through some rigorous bashing on Reddit for about a month, and then finally got it to where I thought it was pretty good. Yes, it does have some drawbacks, but then again, it's a homebrew and is supposed to be criticized. You are right; a lot of the power combos come from certain different classes, and the minor flaws and feats are tuned down regular feats or other class powers. That's how I justified putting them in, because they weren't the "normal" power... they were lesser. Anywho, try it out, see if you like it, then tell me what's wrong with it. I haven't gotten any negative feedback other than that, but I appreciate you reaching out and posting. :)

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
