  • Sil’s “Hacked” Powers

    I’ve noticed that Sil the Paladin, probably based on the Pathfinder Divine Hunter Archetype, has some very reasonable changes to her “Mystic Powers” (Boot Trait) to reflect that she’s based on archery and not melee. Will there be any discussion of of hacks to represent things like this in any upcoming books? Will there be upcoming books that cover different archetypes and more classes (like the Alchemist, Witch, and Oracle, which seem to be fan favorites)? Mostly just curious. I’m pretty comfortable making changes like this on the fly with Savage worlds but it’s always nice to have guidelines.

      BigMike is the lead designer for Pathfinder. Donald was letting him know to come look at this topic when he gets online.

    Normally for Seasoned Paladins their Mystic Power of Boost Trait is limited to their Fighting, Strength, or Vigor but for Sil the Paladin (from Archetypes 2) it specifies Shooting, Stealth, or Vigor. I assume to reflect her deity's "gifts" to her. So yeah, it is a tweak, but an appropriate one that's not really unbalancing and much more suited to her. Her chosen deity is not specified.

      While not official or anything I've been working on a comprehensive expansion project for SWPF which includes an Oracle Class.

        yeah. I don’t think there is anything wrong with tweaks like this in general, and I quite like the Divine Hunter class (my main character in the computer version of Pathfinder Kingmaker was one). I was mostly curious if we would see guidelines for it. Generally savage worlds is much simpler than pathfinder and pathfinder archetypes often get quite specific in terms of what they add and take away so some ideas would be helpful if not required.

            I am guessing BigMike is either on vacation, ill, or super busy. Because this has been over a month without an answer.

              Well that is a good thing we cannot complain about.

            Sorry guys. I actually did go in for gallbladder surgery about a month ago and have been recovering/catching up. NOTHING WILL STOP MY OUTPUT!

            The book I am working on will 100% touch on different Class Edges, and "archetypes". Once I can talk more about it, I will give some fun spoilers. Hopefully, after the holidays I can talk more about it and share some playtest experiences. Yes, its far enough along that people have been playtesting (redacted).
