Epic level prestige classes. 
3rd-Aug-2005 10:57 am
I'm working on epic level prestige classes. I think I'm making them horribly too powerful, but I thought I would post them here to see what you think. I'm not really all that seasoned at making prestige classes of any kind, so bear with me (I just didn't like the selection in the Epic Level Handbook and wanted to offer to my players classes that were more based on my campaign and less on the cookie cutter stuff offered by Wizards.)

Because these prestiges revolve around my campaign's story, things might not make sense--basically, there's the True World, which is controlled by Fate, and where everything came from. Then there's Evelon, the universe the PCs are in (that's part of the multiverse that encompasses the True World), where some people from the True World become uber-powerful plane shifters and created their own world that was not controlled by Fate. That's the whole gist of the planar structure, anyway.

So, give me some feedback on my in-the-rough epic prestiges:

This link will take you to the word document that has the first two.

Not all of them are going to be Disciples, but this is the first string of prestiges I'm working on. I still have ideas for three more Disciple-based epic prestiges. Basically, it's the idea of manipulating soul energy. Anyway, I look forward to being critiqued!

I thought Disciple of the Cosmos was pretty darn good.

I'm glad to hear that! You don't think it's overpowered? I was mulling over the idea of whether they need the "Awaken the Soul" part or not (the ability to cast certain druidic spells once per day) just because they already were given a lot.

The Disciple of the Hymn I thought was a little random, and I wanted to give it more of a rhythm (pardon the pun, lol), but I couldn't figure out exactly how to balance it.

No, there's only a 3.0 version, and because they're working on 4.0, they're reluctant to release a 3.5 version.

It doesn't.

4e has been a persistent rumor since, oh, 2001. While it's quite likely that there will be a 4e, expect it to be largely compatible with 3e--perhaps evenmoreso than 3.5 was. If they do otherwise, WotC risks splitting their player-base into two perpetual, incompatible networks.

And there wasn't a 3.5 Epic Level Handbook because the over-20th level stuff is both not very popular and not very well supported by the game's design. The necessary adaptions are included in the 3.5 DMG; everything else from the ELH can be used as-is.

(And as my mandatory gratuitous plug, Mindcraft has epic-level information for both of its core-classes. The PrCs would have had the info, but as they only go to 5th level they're inelegible for epic advancement.)

4.0's been discussed on the Wizards forums here and there, and I heard it was a release impending for 2007.

Of course, that just might be people overloading the forums, but that's what I heard. :-p

Could you post your PrCs in a more accessible format? I'm wary of downloading .docs in general.

Sweet, thanks
