Introduction to Terms and Definitions
Every character has to have certain statistics in a role-playing game. Depending on the system, the necessary statistics change. Complete Control: Character Design for the Uninhibited is designed for gaming systems that incorporate known quantities like Hit Dice, Base Attack Bonus, six Ability Scores, three Saving Throw modifiers, Skills, Feats, Magic, and even Psionics and Channeling. Of course, these are only a handful of things that make up a character to be role-played. Since this product has to begin somewhere, it might as well begin with the most easily definable quantities. Even still, before we can get to the basics there are three fundamental mindshattering principles that must be accepted. I suppose – to be honest – it is more like one principle and two additional corollaries.

Mentalis Design

What Do You Mean My Character Has No Class? No, it isn’t quite what you think. A character can have as much class or as little class as desired. Anyone can role-play class into or out of any character. But the principle that must be understood is that this system frees characters from the concept of having a class or a prestige class. A character can have class, but a character no longer has a class. Let that thought sink into the mind for a little bit. How much of current role-playing is centered on this concept of class? Many abilities that a character can attain are dependent on their class. The amount of damage a character can endure is based on class. The skills a character can have are based on class. The psionic powers, magic spells and incantations, or divine abilities are based on class. But what if this no longer had to be true? What if – like in some top grade spoof that combined The Matrix with role-playing – Morpheus was sitting before you holding out two pills? One of them was red and the other was blue. And you are told, “Take the one pill, and life goes back the way it was. You go back to gaming, close this document, and make characters based on class like you’re familiar with doing. But, if you take the other pill, your eyes will be opened and your mind will be freed. Character design will know only the boundaries of your Game Master and your imagination. The choice is yours.” Think about it. What would it be like to play a wizard who actually can have d10’s as their Hit Dice if they are willing to sacrifice someNow, the sky is the limit for your concepts. So shoot for thing in return? What would it be like to play a functional melee bard what you want, and don’t be limited by classes.

and cases like it. It is as close to ultimate freedom in gaming as we can get without holographic technology! Corollary One: Character Level There are certain inherent problems that creep into game play when a system that was originally designed to have class as a part of it suddenly has class yanked out of it. All of a sudden experience is collected. that’s right – without class altogether. In this case. this is almost always the first question that is asked once the new system is absorbed. know that all abilities that are class level dependent will have individual ability levels. For now. Corollary Two: Purchasing New Elements of a Character From a player’s perspective.CoMplete Control that gets Base Attack Bonus and Hit Dice like a fighter by selectively choosing to give up a few of the typical bard abilities that don’t really fit the player’s concept of their character anyway? What would it be like to play a fighter who gets to keep their Hit Dice but gives up a few fighter feats in exchange for a few levels of psionic power progression and some actually functional skills – maybe even a few sneak attack dice? The mind-shattering fundamental principle that absolutely cannot be overlooked is that role-playing done through spending earned experience is most free when it is classless. or even Base Attack Bonus progression. this system will always use total character level instead. or spell casting mean something significant again. None of these things are predetermined by a choice of class! Not only does the concept of “dead levels” go away completely. but all of a sudden an increase to Base Attack Bonus. When can experience be spent? How much can be spent at one time? 2 . Character level remains the same in all cases. treat that result as the number of Hit Dice that a character would have when considering the effect of spells and power effects. class level is not so easy to overcome because class is no longer a word that has any meaning in this kind of game. but for right now understand that these distinctions will be handled. However. and spent as it’s earned instead of all at once in the form of a new predetermined class level. As will be discussed later. every part of a character is the way that the player wants it to be. certain class abilities talk about class level and character level. Hit Dice progression. There is no such thing as a predetermined save progression. Yes. For example. Not that there is anything wrong with playing in either system. In cases where total Hit Dice is the determining factor. Additionally. That is the fundamental difference between playing in a standard role-playing game and playing in a game where class is eliminated from the system. Saves. To be honest. Hit Dice no longer becomes a legitimate means for determining the ability of a power or spell to effect a character. Simply compare the experience earned with an experience table and you have the character level. that too is an incredibly freeing proposition once the mind is allowed to absorb it. a classed system is far easier for the Game Master to manage. in place of determining a character’s Hit Dice it is easiest to find their effective character level based on the amount of total experience that they have earned. hoarded. this document will get into more detail this subject. In this system there are no such things as class skills or cross-class skills. Later on. There are no such things as class abilities. Then. But in a classless system. There are no such things as feats that you have to take because they are built into the class. what if a player is trying to decide whether the effect of a spell can affect their character based on the number of Hit Dice they have? Since Hit Dice in this system will be bought as desired instead of gained every level (see Hit Dice section below).

Mentalis Design Do I need training or do I just get better? These questions are honestly best left answered by each Game Master rather than by some author who doesn’t know the individual game dynamics of every game across the world. Game Masters are certainly within their right to limit experience point spending to between gaming sessions.5 SRD. In my games and with my players. Keeping up with a large number of players’ changes as soon as they can make them might bog some groups down and make the game less enjoyable. that is dynamic that makes the game more fun and realistic.

I also game with my laptop computer and have a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to do all my number crunching on the spot for all the characters in the game. However. I know that it is safe for me to let them spend their experience as they earn it – although I do sometimes impose time periods of training. It is a decision best left in the hands of the one who is most often charged with making the game balanced and fun to play. To my mindset. or progression can be found. However. and overcoming challenges. In those cases. That makes the game easier to adjust on the fly. Symbols Used Throughout This Work Some of the concepts used in this work come from the 3. some examples intentionally illustrate a few of the works from Dreamscarred Press. There is nothing intrinsically wrong about that restriction. honing their skills. Other Game Masters might consider that scenario a numerical nightmare. Classes and abilities that receive no special notation are from the 3. These symbols are listed to give the readers the ability to reference the examples used in the actual document where the class. But. Those are usually meant to explain part of what the characters did during adventures as well as explain some down time between gaming sessions. for the most part I like the fluidity of a character improving on the spot as they are actually fighting. Those classes and abilities from Dreamscarred Press will be given one of the following symbols.

thinking that Herron is going to spend most of his time in the back and healing people. The fifth.290 1. These cost Herron’s player 480 XP for the first d8. this does bring up the issue of Constitution bonuses to Hit Points and when they properly accrue. So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. let’s take an example. However.655 3. Herron’s associates continue to get into more and more difficult scrapes. What exactly does a character have to spend in order to purchase their Hit Dice? The formula is very easy and the results are listed in the Table on Hit Die. each d4 Hit Die. Herron’s player has spent enough XP to purchase seven Hit Dice: four d4 and three d8. To find any character’s Constitution bonus (or penalty) to their total Hit Points the player simply multiplies their Constitution modifier by their current character level and adds the appropriate bonus or penalty. Hit Points become a completely new variable for every character that is created. Please note that Herron’s character level is never considered in this calculation. 600 XP for the next d8 and 720 XP for the third d8. These cost Herron’s player 60 XP when purchasing the second Hit Die. Since this system replaces Hit Die with character level whenever a total Hit Die is requested.935 2.150 2.505 1. causing Herron to have to play a more up front role at times.CoMplete Control The Hit Dice given for a class or prestige class may not always be what the player is looking for.010 3. At the end of the prior example. However.085 6 New Base Attack Bonus . What if a character could have not only the size Hit Dice that is appropriate for the player’s character design but also an amount of Hit Dice that is independent of the current level of the character? Hit Dice does not need to be a function of level. This thought process continues on for three more purchases. and his player doesn’t particularly feel the need to spend a bunch of experience points on Hit Points in the beginning.870 4.720 1. 120 XP for the third Hit Die.075 1.225 3. sixth.

Herron’s player sees a need to increase the size of the Hit Die purchased. If a player wants to play a Psion with a strong mind but a weak frame. This initial choice costs Herron’s player a mere 30 XP. Herron is a Worldthought MedicWM. and 180 XP for the fourth Hit Die.440 3.580 2. and seventh purchases the player makes for Herron are all d8 Hit Die. Let’s use Herron from above as a continued example. So. The only thing that is important is whether or not Herron’s player has the unspent experience to spend on these choices when the player wants to buy them.795 3. is there anything wrong with skimping out on a few Hit Dice in order to boost their psionic abilities? Does a 6th level Society MindUP absolutely have to have six d6 Hit Dice? What if the player wants five d4 Hit Die or seven d8? Is that even possible? Of course it is! The player would need to be willing to make the appropriate sacrifice in the cases where the character is exceeding the expected values as the class was originally written.365 2. Suddenly.

The player will end up spending 2. there is no limit as to how low a character’s Base Attack Bonus should be in this system as well. Jared’s player could spend 110 XP to increase his Base Attack Bonus from +0 to +1 and then immediately spend an additional 215 XP to increase his Base Attack Bonus from +1 to +2. then Base Attack Bonus should be even easier. Let’s take two examples. His total Hit Points would be 47 [31+16] as an 8th level character regardless of the fact that Herron only has purchased seven Hit Dice.830 7 New Saving Throw . it is impossible to end up with a character that may be third or fourth level and still have a Base Attack Bonus of zero – although this is not recommended! But.8 on the d8 rolls. In total.3. Points of Base Attack Bonus are purchased as the player desires it for their character and as the player has free experience to spend. Shannara’s player has the experience to spend and wants to upgrade her to a Base Attack Bonus of +11/+6/+1. Base Attack Bonus is purchased at a rate listed in the table.000 XP on Herron.430 3.710 3. Jared’s player would have spent 325 XP out of the free pool of experience given to the player at character creation. The second example is Jared.190 1. That would put him with the range of an 8th level character. But. The first is Shannara. That would give him 31 Hit Points from his purchased Hit Dice.750 2.310 2.1. The formula for the purchase is actually very easy.Mentalis Design For the sake of the example.550 4.030 2.470 1.990 4.270 4. suppose the player has actually earned a total of 30. Under this system. By multi-classing several times.150 XP in order to upgrade to the new Base Attack Bonus. there are no fractional advancements or any other form of class restrictions.590 2.785 XP over the course of Shannara’s adventuring to get her to a Base Attack Bonus of +10/+5. a female MarksmanUP who has already paid the 9. suppose the player rolled a 3. A character is certainly not obligated to buy a point of Base attack bonus at any level. Step Three: Offense If Hit Points were straight forward.150 3. Step Four: Resistance Typically. Herron would actually receive 16 [8*2] Hit Points as a Constitution bonus. although several points may be purchased one after another if the player has enough experience to spend at one time. just as a character in a standard game could technically avoid earning their first point of Base Attack Bonus. Jared’s player decides that at the beginning of Jared’s career an extra point of Base Attack Bonus is more important than one of the feats that he could otherwise spend the experience on.870 3. Many classes start off on their first level with a Base Attack Bonus of zero. a brand new Fighter preparing for his first adventure. If Herron has a Constitution score of 14. It should be noted that characters must buy their attack bonuses one point at a time. once Hit Dice and Base Attack Bonus are determined in the process of character generation the next areas to work XP Cost 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 45 60 70 350 630 910 1.7. giving him a modifier of +2.4 on the d4 rolls and a 5.

Reflex (REFL). there is no need for strong and weak save tables. feats will always remain an important part of the game and the ability to not only pick feats when a player wants them but also to pick the feats that they want is a very rewarding combination.840 5. Jared begins with all three saving throws set at zero. This would cost Jared’s player 105 XP of the beginning experience allotted. there is no cost to gaining a free feat if that is the benefit of a character’s race. As a beginning character. saving throws must be increased one point at a time – although a player is certainly able to purchase more than one point of save at any interval assuming that they have the experience to spend. However. feats are one of the most sought after quantities. Any feat that would normally be gained by taking a level in a class is now purchased only if the character actually wants the feat. There are a couple of things that should be stated clearly with respect to this table. the feat can be purchased whenever the player desires it so long as they have the experience to spend and their character meets the feat’s prerequisites. there are no feats gained through character advancement at all. Under a system like the one presented here. this is because a player’s feats are one of the few truly customizable aspects in a standard role-playing game. When using this table. and Will (WILL).400 6.000 9.CoMplete Control on are the saving throws: Fortitude (FORT).280 3. it is not uncommon for feats to begin to take less of a prominent role in character design because players are satisfied by the customizability of every aspect of building a character. However. simply use the table listed. feats are no longer gained automatically as a character’s XP Cost 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 100 160 680 1. each of the three saving throws is increased independently of the other two. Just as there is no experience cost for gaining special abilities or skill modifiers because of a selected race.960 8. Because Jared’s Ability Scores make him an agile fighter with a strong Constitution. bonus feats granted through racial selection should not be counted. suppose the player with Jared from the previous example is now working on saving throws.720 2. Jared’s player can do so by first expending 45 XP and then expending 60 XP.360 5. Step Five: Selecting Feats Often. Even thought the player had already purchased increases to the WILL save. purchases made to the other saves are unaffected by the amount of experience already spent. Jared’s player is really worried most about WILL saves. Also. Instead. Since each additional point of saving throw bonus is purchased when the player desires.880 6. In a similar manner. The saving throws are just as straightforward as Base Attack Bonus. the player could purchase a +1 to the REFL for 45 XP.440 7. Furthermore.480 9. remember that since there are no longer classes.800 4. As with the formula for Base Attack Bonus.520 8 Total Number of Feats Purchased .240 2. If Jared’s player were slightly concerned about Jared’s REFL save.760 3. As an example. Additionally.200 1.320 4.920 7. The player wants to begin play with Jared having a WILL save modifier of +2.

Let’s take Jared as an example again. Of course. If the player instead wanted to buy Jared’s first feat it would cost 100 XP. the character’s intelligence score determines a skill rating which will be used to determine the base price per skill rank. Chapter Three will discuss levelvariable class abilities. That process will be explained in subsequent chapters. suppose Senna the Rogue has Skill Rating Non-Human 68-9 10-11 12-13 14-15 16-17 18-19 20-21 22 + 80 48 34 27 22 18 16 14 13 Human 48 34 27 22 18 16 14 13 12 9 Intelligence . a higher intelligence score earns free ranks of a skill with each class level. These abilities should be discarded from the choices that a player can take in this system. However. But skills are certainly fundamental to a Rogue’s or Bard’s development. 3rd.Mentalis Design level increases to 1st. For example. Step Six: Skills Skills are usually to Rogue and Bard type characters what feats are to Fighter type characters. or every three levels after 3rd. intelligence is still important to a character. A second feat would cost Jared’s player an additional 160 XP. In this system. a player may buy multiple ranks of a skill at the same time so long as they have the appropriate experience to spend. If a player wants their character to be eligible to take a feat with Fighter levels in the prerequisites they must buy access to that class ability to the appropriate ability level. there is no longer a Fighter class. That isn’t to say that combat characters can’t enjoy skills and skill-type characters can’t enjoy feats. they should do it by buying a feat. the option to buy the Rogue special ability and actual gain a feat should be disallowed. For example. Jared would need to meet all the prerequisites for the feats selected before being able to purchase any of the feats. some feats have class level requirements. multiply the skill rating indicated from the table above by the level of the rank minus four. Since this system no longer uses classes. Some classes have class abilities that actually give a character the option of gaining a feat. While most of the options for this ability are still valid. Thus. While possible for a starting character whose player to make other sacrifices. The rationale is that if a character wants to gain a feat. As the table to the left indicates. Greater Weapon Focus requires a character to be a Fighter of 8th level. To find the actual cost of the skill rank. Finally. multiply the number from the table above by one-half and round the result up if necessary. Feats are selected only when a player wants to buy them and outside of a Game Master’s beneficence the only free feat ever gained is through race at character generation. If the player wants to buy a feat. they would need to actually buy the feat according to the prices listed here. A classic example of this is the Rogue special ability. prerequisites such as these must be rethought. Jared could even buy a third feat for 680 XP. each rank of a skill must be purchased individually. The simplest answer is implemented in this work. Suppose Jared’s player has rethought the decision earlier to buy two points of Base Attack Bonus and now is thinking about the feats that could instead be purchased with the experience. For determining the cost of the first four ranks of any skill. not buying a class ability that earns them the feat. In a standard game. As with the prior tables. but nothing earns a character any free ranks in a skill (except an appropriate feat or item). but for right now know that access to Fighter feats is a level-variable class ability.

This gives Aswaan a skill rating of 22. While this rules system does not place a limit on how many ranks of XP Cost Proficiency with any single simple weapon Proficiency with all simple weapons Proficiency with any single martial weapon Proficiency with all martial weapons Proficiency with any single exotic weapon Proficiency with any one light armor Proficiency with all light armors Proficiency with one medium armor Proficiency with all medium armors Proficiency with one heavy armor Proficiency with all heavy armors Proficiency with light shields Proficiency with heavy shields Proficiency with tower shields 5 XP 25 XP 10 XP 50 XP 50+[25*(number of exotic weapon proficiencies)2] 5 XP 25 XP 10 XP 50 XP 15 XP 75 XP 10 XP 15 XP 25 XP 10 Proficiencies . A good suggestion for this number is anything between 18 and 27 for nonhumans and a corresponding rating of between 16 and 22 for human characters. Senna’s player wants to add a few more ranks to the Balance skill. That gives Senna a skill rating of 18 with regard to purchasing skill ranks. it should be noted that players who play characters with higher Intelligence scores will not be pleased with this decision while players with characters of sub-average Intelligence will be greatly excited. Instead of races receiving bonus skill ranks. However. In this case. If her player wants to purchase the first four ranks in the Balance skill. Additionally. the Game Master is certainly within their right to set a static skill rating. her player could do that if she had the 36 XP to spend.CoMplete Control an Intelligence of 16. If Senna’s player wants to buy a 5th rank in the Balance skill she would have to spend an additional 18 XP for that rank. Thus. Aswaan is Human so this value decreases to 18 as shown in the table. In these cases. If the player wanted to purchase a 6th rank. These characters should use the in the column indicated for Humans. For example. Each of the first four ranks would cost 9 XP. A few adventures later. so a static skill rating with this in mind helps promote an average game. this system reduces the skill rating found in the table above for races which grant bonus skill ranks. the cost of the 5th skill rank and higher is always the skill rating times four less than the rank number being purchased. the rank would cost 48 XP when purchased. the cost would be 36 XP. Most games have characters with an average Intelligence of 12 or 14. some Game Masters are bothered by the ability for a player to buy more ranks in a skill than would normally be allowed in a standard game. Aswaan the NexusTC begins play with an Intelligence of 14. Some Game Masters may not want to hassle with skill ranks that are Intelligence dependant. it would cost 108 XP. if Aswaan’s player wanted to pick up the 1st rank in Hide at any point in the game the player could do so by paying 9 XP. Another question that needs answered is with races that are given a free skill point at each level. it is much easier to convert the free skill ranks into a reduced cost for each skill rank purchased. If Aswaan already had 9 ranks in the Heal skill and his player wanted to pick up the 10th rank. However. Should Senna’s player advance Senna’s Intelligence to 18 (this will be covered later) before purchasing a 7th rank. Remember. There are other considerations in regard to buying skills.

This would automatically ensure that balance related to maximum skill rank would be maintained according to the benchmarks of a standard game. 11 . and Exotic weapons can use the following table for characters determining their proficiencies at 1st level: As a rule. in order for a character to be proficient in Step Seven: Weapon and Armor any single martial weapon they Proficiencies must be proficient with at least This is one of the most overlooked changes to three simple weapons – one of a game in which class has no inherent meaning. order for a character Depending on the to be proficient in any medium style of the game. especially for Game Masters who make consistent use of published adventures and adventure paths. with if they have no class to define the In order for a character to be choices?

In a standard game.280 XP and the fourth advancement would cost 3. these prices are for characters at the character generation stage only. Senna’s player could have accomplished this by spending 360 XP to move the score from 16 to 17. Additionally. Asking a character to buy all simple and medium weapon proficiencies in addition to an exotic weapon proficiency would cost them 150 XP. XP Cost Weapon Groups Each groups made up of simple or martial weapons only Each group with at least one exotic weapon within their list 25 XP Additionally. Some Game Masters enjoy using the concept of weapon groups.320 XP to move the score from 17 to 18. Some Game Masters might feel that this price is too insignificant for exotic weapon proficiencies. This is certainly possible.160 50+[25*(total number of groups having at least one exotic weapon) 2] These numbers in this table will generally balance with the numbers listed in the table above for Simple.CoMplete Control proficiencies in this manner does automatically eliminate a few choices for feats in the standard game at first level.320 2. the first few feats of a character’s development cost 100 XP and 160 XP respectively.240 4. many players also like the freedom of being able to have more than five ability advancements over the course of their character’s life. These costs are reasonable in comparison to the first few feat costs that a character would incur. Returning to the example of Senna the Rogue from above. In that light. Adding weapon. if the player at any time wanted to advance a statistic besides Intelligence they would only pay 360 XP for the first advancement to the XP Cost 1 360 1. the table below indicates that it using weapons groups is very straightforward. However. However. armor. the next increase would cost 2. This may need an example to clarify the rules of purchasing ability increases. The player could then have spent 1. If the player wanted to continue advancing Intelligence. In any case. there was mention of Senna’s Intelligence score increasing from 16 to 18. not all Game Masters want to use weapons broken into these categories. realizing of course that if they spend more experience than expected on ability increases then they will have less experience to spend on other aspects of their character.280 3. and the purpose of this work is to explain the formulas for using them rather than list out a series of weapon groups. A third exotic weapon proficiency would cost 275 XP. Some characters will benefit from one system over the other. A second exotic weapon proficiency would cost them an additional 150 XP.200 5. but these differences are usually minor in the beginning of a game and insignificant as the game runs its course. these prices are for characters at the character generation stage only. a character may increase their ability score by one point every four character levels. There are many good sources for finding weapon groups in publication. However. Many players will like the ability to purchase their own ability improvements whenever they want. psionics. the rules are simple. Characters who have already begun to adventure must use feats to add weapon groups to their proficiencies.

but advancing a second or third ability score always begins back at 360 XP for that particular ability score. Also. A few other notes should be made about this rule. Suddenly character design is now as much fun between levels as it is at each new character level. Summary of the Basics At this point.320 XP for the second advance. a Game Master and their gaming group could begin to throw together some mock-fighters and begin having oneoff combats at various levels of builds – so long as their builds do not need class abilities. This is a significant point to consider. it is also very basic and easy to implement. And that is the point of this system. because it demonstrates that while this system is numbers heavy in terms of keeping track of experience gained and experience spent.Mentalis Design new statistic and 1. note that ability advancement happens independently of advancement to other ability scores. or magic. psionics. The cost increases for each advance to an ability score. What will take more time is realizing the many ways that a player can now tweak their character to get exactly what they want. First. 13 . Character conversion in the areas that have already been discussed should take a very limited amount of time. note that the cost to increase an ability score is independent of the actual ability score.

620 1. the price of constant abilities is easy to figure out. For example. the level would be 5.700 2.590 4. however. because the power of constant abilities is often largely tied to the build of the character. This is a constant ability because its effects remain the same for the entire life of the character.320 4.400 As the table shows. while the Barbarian gains the ability at 5th level. On the other hand. For example. A player would need to pay 1. These abilities are any ability that either does not change or does not change in a measurable way. care should be taken when straying too far from the suggested cost of such abilities. Those abilities will be handled in the next chapter. and they are by far the easiest to keep track of as a player.510 3.050 4. the Barbarian and the Rogue both gain Improved Uncanny Dodge.350 XP to purchase that ability for their character regardless of when it is purchased. The price for constant abilities is easy to figure out with respect to base classes. The table for buying a constant ability is predominantly a guideline. Constant abilities are the easiest to see.780 4.CoMplete Control Constant Abilities The name can mean many things. XP COST 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 270 540 810 1. These abilities are purchased with a certain amount of experience every single game and once they are purchased the bookkeeping is minimal. The only piece of information needed is the absolute lowest level that an ability can be gained. The temptation to raise and lower ability costs should be cautioned. hence the name.080 1.130 5.970 3. the ability’s power is somewhat diminished. Every Game Master and every player knows that not all abilities gained at a certain level are equal in power. the rogue gains this ability at 8th level. in a standard game a class ability that adds a static bonus to a specific skill check is a constant ability.240 3.890 2. As an example. 14 Level of the Constant Ability . the ability should always be priced at the absolute lowest level that the ability can be gained in a standard game. In the case of Improved Uncanny Dodge.860 5. Once the ability is gained it is present in a constant way and in a constant amount. define. When determining the price of a constant ability.160 2.350 1. an ability to leave no trace while moving through woodland areas is vastly helpful to a single character or a group of characters in which each member has access to the ability. In a party who does urban adventuring or a party full of heavy track laying associates. but the one thing that constant abilities are not is boring. abilities that gain additional uses or change based on the level of the character are not constant abilities because they contain at least one variable element. The point of this argument is that while the table is a guideline and a Game Master ultimately has the ability to raise or lower the cost of any ability.430 2. However.

it is wise to restrict the purchase Game Masters may desire to add to or increase of constant abilities to when the character’s the prerequisites for abilities gained after the level is one less than when a character would 1st level of a Prestige Class or base class. Note that this reduction in abilities for the 1 level of the Prestige acquisition level does not reduce the purchase Class would actually be priced price. For example. the prerequisites can easily shift to abilities can be acquired. The work that must be done experience with these rules increases. In this case. Since the 4. a five level standard game.

That reduction has already been taken as 6th level constant abilities into account as will be explained in the and therefore cost 1. Additionally. The price of the Prestige Class would be th a constant ability is priced as 7 level constant always dependent abilities and would therefore upon the lowest level cost 1.510 XP. Prestige Class prerequisites are The Game Master can decide to make all abilities open during Want a monk’s ability to avoid made irrelevant by the nature the whole game or to limit when damage.

As such. its prerequisites should also be set accordingly to being able to gain the abilities at the 5th character level. Knowledge (Psionics) 8 ranks. it is certainly reasonable to set the following prerequisites for the ability: Heal 4 ranks. While the rules for constant abilities are easy to implement. Able to manifest body adjustment and either metaphysical claws or metaphysical weapon. the AmalgamistUP Prestige Class also has an 8th level class ability called Efficient Crafting – technically a 13th level constant ability able to be gained under this system at the 12th character level. the experience cost for any class ability that does not vary as character development occurs can now be determined. Following these rules. Since the Almagamist Prestige Class can be attained on the 6th level in a standard game. Any sourcebook that illustrates its new character classes in either a base class form or a Prestige Class form can now have its constant abilities converted into this classless system. A reasonable list of requirements for this ability might be: Crystallic Limb constant ability. the more exciting aspect of the progression of the rules is that there are only a few topics yet to be covered before a game can be fully converted into a truly classless wonder! 16 . and having successfully grafted at least one crystallic on yourself.

At worst. and several means of denying their opponents their Dexterity bonus than to a character who lacks these things. the Worldthought MedicUP has a class ability that steals hit points from its enemies and allows the medic to heal his allies with the stolen damage. Additionally. While these are certainly the most popular means for abilities to vary. it just requires some attention to detail. For example. As with constant abilities.025 2.635 5. variable abilities are always purchased according to the lowest character level in which the ability could be attained through any combination of classes in a standard game.645 4. As written. Other variable abilities vary based on the number of uses granted per day.195 3.385 2. any ability that is based on a class level must now be based on an ability level. Some variable abilities vary based on an effective user level. some abilities vary in combinations of these methods.395 1. Even the same ability can be vastly different in effectiveness between characters. As with constant abilities. variable abilities have elements within them that vary to some extent as the character improves. This will initially take some work for a Game Master to define. No two variable abilities have exactly the same effectiveness. Where these abilities are more difficult to use is in the upkeep and bookkeeping on the player’s end as well as remembering what the next variable increase should cost. Still more variable abilities vary in how many Hit Dice of damage they can do. the ability to do extra damage when an opponent is denied their Dexterity bonus to Armor Class is much more valuable to a character with high Dexterity. Level-Variable Abilities One of the most interesting aspects of variable abilities is that since class is irrelevant in this system. they are not the only ways for abilities to vary.695 2.775 3. For example. Caution must be used when adjusting the cost of abilities above or below the guidelines that the formulas suggest.Variable Abilities Mentalis Design Variable abilities are not named because their cost varies from game to game but because their effectiveness can vary from level to level. too! Variable abilities are not difficult in determining the amount of experience necessary to purchase.175 5. it is time consuming. high initiative.

the initial increase of 30 XP character’s character level. then increasing the ability to 2nd Anyara began opening the player wants to increase the level would cost an additional ability level to 4th level so that portal to the Fae Lands to 30 XP.

the player would need to spend an additional 150 XP to raise the ability level first to 3 and then to 4. The second increase to this ability would cost 240 XP. incantations. the Ranger class casts spells at a caster level equal to half the overall Ranger class level. resulting in a net ability level of 17. or 16. and it would result in the ability now being 9th level. A 15th level-variable ability always costs 3. Jenna would have Steal Health at the 5th ability level. Furthermore. The second increase to this ability would cost 480 XP. A 7th level-variable ability always costs 675 XP and automatically begins as a 7th ability level. increases to the ability level always cost 30 XP more than the cost for the prior increase in level. the first increase to the above mentioned 7th level ability costs 210 XP. Since the Druid ability functions identically (in fact more efficiently) than the Ranger ability. the MarksmanUP class has a level-variable ability called Cover Fire. the player would spend a cumulative 5.Mentalis Design the additional 120 XP to spend. The ability would be 4th level by the purchase. so increasing caster level is a 1st level-variable ability. In total. it has the Animal Companion class ability which is defined by the Druid class ability. The one exception to this rule is a class ability that is defined by a completely different class. The DC of the effect is calculated by adding 10 + one-half the character’s MarksmanUP class level + the Dexterity modifier. For the Ranger to actually cast spells. If Xerrem’s player pays another 120 XP the ability level rises to 5.5)+3.5)+3. a MarksmanUP with a Dexterity modifier of +3. regardless of her character level. Using the chart. As the example demonstrates. Regardless of when the player purchases the ability to cast spells. the player would need to pay an additional 30 XP so the ability level would be 2 and the effective caster level would be 1. Although the Ranger cannot cast spells until 4th level. but the ability description indicates that the DC of Xerrem’s Cover Fire ability is 10+4(. spell slots. If Xerrem’s player pays another 150 XP the ability level rises to 6 and the DC of the Cover Fire effect becomes 10+6(. In this case. but the DC would not increase due to the rules about rounding decimals down. the Ranger ability is simply disregarded. However. For the Ranger to have a caster level of 2. it should be stated that this experience spent is only to increase manifester/ caster levels. Some level-variable abilities are phrased in terms of effectiveness based on a percentage of the overall class level. which has a class level variable effect within the Difficulty Class of the effect. the caster level would still only be 10 because of the caster level for a Ranger’s spell casting specifies that caster level is half the ability level. level-variable abilities found in base classes always begin functioning at the minimum level according to the purchasing cost. they would 19 . The first increase to the above mentioned 15th level ability costs 450 XP. No player would consider taking the Ranger version where each level only counts as a half level when the Druid ability is also available.745 XP if the ability was eventually raised to the 20th level. the character still cannot cast spells because the Ranger’s caster level is defined as half the ability level. would benefit from the Cover Fire class ability. At this point. For example. Suppose the Xerrem. which is a 4th level-variable ability. though. As another example. The actual explanation of how to buy power points. and power/spell levels will be handled in the next chapter. Regardless of the base price of a variable ability.195 XP and automatically begins as a 15th ability level. If a player wanted their character to have an animal companion with the relative strength of a Ranger. To stick with the Ranger. it would cost 45 XP for a caster ability level of 1. or 15. Jenna would be able to do 7 points damage as defined by the class ability description. Xerrem’s player can buy the ability for 225 XP. other classes have the ability to cast 1st level divine spells at 1st level.

then Meditative Focus is priced as a 7th levelvariable ability and costs 675 XP. Bardic Music is a 1st level ability that initially costs 45 XP and 30 XP to improve. Abilities from Prestige Classes can only be increased to the maximum level that would be found in a standard game (usually 5 or 10). The experience expenditures for this kind of variable ability are in the following table. Countersong is a subordinate ability gained at 1st level. so it can be bought for 30 XP once Bardic Music is purchased. This number is 20 . Subordinate abilities can be priced at 30 XP times the level at which they are gained once the greater ability has been increased to an appropriate level. Those abilities that are based on an overall character level – or some other designation besides the Prestige class level – act as though they were from a base class. The second column indicates how much experience must be spent for one use of the ability per day. and Suggestion are great examples of this. unlike constant abilities – whose effect is static – level-variable abilities can often be pushed beyond the limits that a standard game might allow. it is possible for a player to increase an ability level beyond the current individual character level. To continue with the Knight MeditantUP example from above. Additional increases would require Game Master approval. rather than the ability level beginning at 7. Mass Suggestion is a subordinate ability gained at 18th level and therefore it costs 540 XP. Ultimately. the table and application of the data are considerably simpler than levelvariable abilities. While this is normally not a problem. It is always up to a Game Master to determine how far beyond the limits a character may go. To increase the ability to 3rd level. For example. It is certainly reasonable for a Game Master to place a requirement that an ability level cannot exceed a certain number of levels above the character’s current level or above 20. Class abilities from Prestige Classes that function off of the character’s Prestige Class level are always purchased as a level-variable ability of the appropriate level but the ability level begins at the level where the ability first appears within the Prestige Class. Finally. Increasing level-variable abilities that come from Prestige Classes above this limit is possible only with Game Master approval. the ability level would begin at 2 since the ability is dependent upon the Prestige Class level. assuming that Bardic Music has been purchased and improved to an ability level of 18. However. 210 XP would be required as if it were being increased to 8th level. some Game Masters may not be comfortable allowing ability levels to increase too far above character level. the Knight MeditantUP has a 2nd level-variable ability called Meditative Focus. The first column of experience indicates how much experience must be spent to buy access to the ability. In the system being described here. but they would only spend 1. There is a small amount of difficulty with level-variable abilities that come out of Prestige Classes. Bardic Music and its many subordinate abilities like Inspire Courage. this is a decision that is best left in the Game Master’s hands. Use-Variable Abilities Some class abilities do not vary by the character’s class level but by how many times the ability may be used during the course of a day. They could buy increases whenever it suited them.395 XP in the process. for example.CoMplete Control simply buy the Druid’s Animal Companion ability up to level 10. If this Prestige Class could be entered at the earliest at 6th level. For example. This table is made up of two kinds of data. the ability level for Meditative Focus can only be increased to 10th level. Inspire Competence. some level-variable abilities are improved by other abilities that are fully dependent on the main ability. In this case. Additionally.

the formula for finding the cost of each daily use is applied. If Tierna.350 1.880 3.700 2. For example.420 3.620 1. In general. As an example.980 2.

This number is generated by multiplying the cost of the first use by two.420 3. The second use would still cost twice the cost for the first use. this is a 6th level variable ability.240 3. In this exception.160 2. Since a standard non-epic game would not give a player a fourth use of this ability. the Halo KnightHK has a 9th level ability called Avatar Surge that allows the character to use his ability to take on avatars to give the character a bonus to Strength or Dexterity.800 Second use 180 360 540 720 900 1.080 XP.260 1.060 3. The third column indicates the cost for a second daily use of the ability. When this happens the formula for level-variable abilities is always applied first to determine the initial cost of the ability.080 1.260 1.700 2.520 2. As the character progresses.080 1. The player could also then purchase a single use of the ability for 180 XP and a second use for 360 XP.620 1. Then. If Jenna’s player desires to have Jenna use the Empathy ability as a 7th level manifester.160 2.440 1. Jenna’s player could purchase the Empathy ability for 495 XP.600 First use 90 180 270 360 450 540 630 720 810 900 990 1.240 3.710 1.620 XP to spend. uses may be purchased by multiplying the number of use being purchased by the cost for the first use.Mentalis Design always generated by taking half of the initial cost for the ability.620 XP. the levelvariable formula is applied first. Additionally. The third daily use would still cost three times the cost for the first use.080 1. the first use always costs 30 XP times the level of the ability instead of half the base cost.

Most Game Masters should feel quite comfortable in placing a limit in this area of what a standard game allows or perhaps an additional use or two if it does not seem unbalancing. Then.420 3. players can often buy more uses than would normally be found in a standard game for a relatively insignificant cost. Game Masters are discouraged from allowing too many additional uses to be purchased beyond what the rules allow for in a standard game.

A Game Master can easily allow the players to convert their characters while using standard methods for generating antagonists for the game if necessary – at least until a large chunk of the conversions can be accomplished. The systems are in reasonable balance with each other. most Game Masters who want complete control and the ability to customize the allies and antagonists for the players’ characters soon find themselves caught up in the desire to convert completely. Summary of Variable Abilities The tables of variable abilities are certainly not difficult to apply. Don’t feel obligated to convert each class ability of every class before using the system. and performing incantations! 23 . so there shouldn’t be a consistent advantage by using either system. Furthermore. at this point in the work all the rules have been explained with the exception of manifesting powers. casting spells. In the end. most players who want complete freedom in their character design are usually quite willing to assist in converting the abilities of Base Classes and Prestige Classes into experience progressions. this can be accomplished with minimal effort past the initial understanding of the rules. If anything. This case is extremely rare in character building.Mentalis Design cost for purchasing access to the ability. The key to this aspect of converting a standard game into a classless game is patience. a Game Master might consider it tedious work in the beginning. These prerequisites can easily be taken and adjusted from any appropriate portions of the Prestige Class prerequisite list or the base class abilities already gained. although as experience with these rules increases this decision is less important. as in the case of constant abilities a Game Master should feel comfortable establishing prerequisites for variable class abilities. With a bit of patience. It is recommended that in the beginning all abilities be given a minimum level in which they can be purchased. However. Also.

Finally. and the abilities would be increased completely independently of each other.320 1. the player would need to spend 45 XP to be able to cast Druid spells as a 1st level caster. This reduction of price only applies to those costs listed below. then the player would need to buy access for each ability following the rules for level-variable abilities. Just as a character with a variable ability must buy additional uses. There is an iconic list for each ability. This aspect of the game becomes fully customizable – and admittedly scary to many novice Game Masters. First. the player would need to spend 45 XP to be able to manifest Society Mind powers as a 1st level manifester. XP COST Full 1 2 50 240 720 1. There is one other issue that needs to be covered before the price guidelines are given. not to the cost of purchasing manifester/caster levels as a level-variable ability. Each of these abilities would progress as slowly or quickly as the player wanted. In order to do this. the character would know 4 0-level spells and 2 1-level spells from the spell list. The manifester/caster ability is always purchased at full cost as a level-variable ability. In order for a character to manifest powers of a given level. the iconic list is that of the Psion or the Wilder. If a character wants to cast spells as a Druid and manifest powers as a Society MindUP. figuring out the cost for a psionic character’s power is very straightforward. Second.160 2.200 1. they can be used by a character that has them for any power regardless of level and augmentation. What is truly variable in this system is how much power the character can wield. the rules are simply applied twice. then the player would need to apply the rules below for each manifesting and casting progression. The table shows the cost for buying access to powers of a certain level. once for each class. A psionic character knows a specific set of powers and buys power points in order to be able to manifest those powers. Access to a level cannot be bought unless access to all the previous levels has been purchased. At first level.680 2. Additionally.080 1. Other class progressions may use these full lists or grant access to only a portion of them. the player must buy access to each level of powers as they are desired. Since this is the case. Power points do not have levels. For psionic powers.640 3.600 50% 25 120 360 600 840 1. This would only buy them caster and manifester levels. the player must buy power points to fuel the ability. Psionic Progressions Psionic progressions are the easiest to describe and manage because they do not have spell slots as a part of their structure.560 1. If they actually wanted spells to cast and power points to spend.120 3. a manifester or spell caster can buy as many power points or spell slots as they have experience to spend. Then. Classes whose power or spell lists are reduced more than slightly from these iconic lists should use the costs listed below in the 50% column. A psionic character simply needs to buy the initial access to manifest powers as a level-variable ability discussed in the prior chapter. For divine spells. the list is that of the Wizard or Sorcerer. it is possible to buy access to multiple manifesting classes or casting classes. the list is the Cleric’s spell list.

CoMplete Control they must pay the one-time fee for access to that level in addition to ensuring that their manifester ability level is high enough to allow access to the level. However.5 XP per power point. The second reason is simply one of game balance. Only when both of these conditions are met can the player have his character begin manifesting powers of the desired level. Chrysmys could manifest 2nd level powers with an expenditure of 120 XP. the lack of a psionic version of spell slots does imply that there needs to be one additional consideration with regard to psionic rules. Once those purchases are made. In this system.] If we continue to use Chrysmys as an example. The only thing left to discuss regarding psionics is the cost for power points. The first reason is because there is the possibility of a player spending 195 XP per power point to fuel one caster ability and 97. Chrysmys is a dwarven Devoted PsionUP. the table for purchasing spell levels is necessary. this table is not difficult to put into application. If Chrysmys were a MorpheanMO. Unfortunately. psionic power points (and bonus power points for high ability scores) must be kept separate if a character desires to have multiple manifester abilities that use power points. the player would pay 585 XP for 6 power points.5 XP per power point to fuel a second ability. [A Game Master can easily round this up to 98 XP or allow these players to buy their points in pairs for 195 XP. It should be noted that power points gained from having high ability scores are gained as normal without cost. Since the MorpheanMO list is reduced in versatility from the Psion/Wilder list. For example. If a player were to buy a full set of power points for one manifesting ability they could add manifester levels and power levels for much less of a cost for multiple other casting progressions. the fact that both of these systems rely on spell slots instead of power points means than an additional table is necessary. assuming that the 25 XP had already been paid to buy access to first level powers. This means that it is now possible for Chrysmys to buy access to second level powers. Those classes who follow the 50% column in the table also receive a reduction in power point cost of 50%. Assuming that the player has already spend the 50 XP to gain access to first level powers. Before getting to the table on spell slots. Characters that have more than one manifester ability receive bonus power points for each manifesting ability by using the appropriate ability level and modifier. This would cost 225 XP in total. there is no need to distinguish between the cost of arcane and divine casting progressions. his player would have needed to increase Chrysmys’ manifester level to 4 before being able to buy access to second level powers. Arcane and Divine Progressions Fortunately. If Chrysmys was a dwarven MorpheanMO instead. Every power point purchased by a psionic character with access to a full power list costs 195 XP regardless of the character’s level. 26 . The player has expended 135 XP to bring Chrysmys’ manifester level up to 3following the rules of the level-variable abilities. Chrysmys’ player can select as many known 2nd level psionic powers as afforded to him by the Devoted PsionUP base class for a 3rd level manifester. However. Chrysmys’ player would use the 50% column in the table to determine the cost for buy power levels. Chrysmys’ player can add 6 power points to Chrysmys’ power point total at any time for 1170 XP if Chrysmys were a Devoted PsionUP. the player can now spend 240 XP and gain access to second level powers. implying that their cost is 97. In this system the cost for power points is one of the major balancing aspects. This does not even need a table. Bonus power points are always found using the proper manifester level purchased as a level-variable ability and the appropriate ability modifier.

Mentalis Design This table is nearly identical to the cost for buying access to levels of psionic powers. Continuing the example from Kira above.680 2.040 XP. For example.120 3. suppose Kira’s player had already purchased 4 0-level slots for 680 XP.530 Spell Level Access Spell Slot Level 27 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 .

These spell slots must be purchased for the character. however they still must purchase access to the level in order to purchase spell levels and spell slots of a higher level.380 2. Then the player could spend 1.040 2.700 2. and three 2-level slots for 2. the player would have already spent 300 XP to buy access to 0.

If the character has enough experience.560 1. Only when both of these conditions are met can the player have their character begin buying spell slots of the desired level and actually casting spells. Unlike psionics.160 2. In order for a character to cast spells of a given level.360 XP. four 1-level slots for 1. Additionally. As with the psionic table. this table shows the cost for buying access to spells of a certain level.320 1. her player would first have to spend a total of 270 XP to increase her caster ability level to 5 and then to 6.200 XP and buy access to 4th level spells.080 1.640 3. 1st.020 1. The XP COST 50% 85 170 340 510 680 850 1. the player can buy as many 3-level spell slots for Kira as desired at a cost of 1. In cases where a casting progression includes the use of zero level spells.020 1.020 XP per slot. The only difference in the numbers is that spell casters often have access to zero level spells while psionic characters never have access to zero level powers. Once Kira’s player is able to purchase access to 3rd level spells. spell casters use spell slots to determine the effectiveness of their ability. if a player buys higher spell slots the character is able to use the spell slots of a higher level to cast spells of a lower level or even use metamagic spells if desired. If a spell caster does not purchase slots for a given spell level. the player would need to spend a total of 390 XP to increase the caster ability level to 7 and then 8. and they can be purchased in any quantity that the character desires.360 1. However. they simply cannot cast any spells of that level. arcane and divine spell casters with high ability scores receive bonus spell slots at no experience cost. and 2nd level spells and would need to spend an additional 720 XP to buy access to the 3rd level spells.720 3.600 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 50% 5 25 120 360 600 840 1. they cannot be sold.

At this point. 29 . all the rules for designing characters following those found in the SRD and published by Dreamscarred Press have been explained. True versatility is now at any player’s or Game Master’s fingertips. An example will follow. If Ayssah is buying his first Incantation it would cost 200 XP. Magic. and Channeling Summary Working with characters that use psionics. Psionics. IF it were Ayssah’s third or fourth incantation it would cost 400 XP or 500 XP respectively. magic.

Ayssah is NexusTC who has grown accustomed to channeling air incantations out of the sphere of Elements. and channeling can be added to almost any build as a minor enhancement or even a major replacement for abilities that don’t fit the player’s personal character design goals.

Some aspects of character design which can happen in a standard 20 level game can be pushed beyond the limits of a standard until the implications are understood. that ruling maintains the original 20 carefully considered before allowing the limits to be increased. If they have extra experience to spend they need to spend it in areas other than their strengths. not every aspect of the game is absolutely broken if the progressions are allowed. Others should be very least. for example. So. the standard every increase to psionic or magic ability are beginning policy should be only to allow that not equal. and psionic characters would have their spell slots and powerpoints limited absolutely by how many power points and spell slots could ultimately be purchased as a character in a standard game. to allow save progression to continue to so you know what you can soon do . This is the safest position to take because it limits characters’ strengths. 30 . The arcane.

A Game Master Upper Boundaries might decide that allowing players to buy more The rules put forth in this system are fairly than 20 Hit Dice is perfectly acceptable. a character would not be allowed to purchase more than 20 Hit Dice and a character would not be allowed to increase the progression of Sneak Attack beyond +10d6 damage. The safest rule to consider is one which says that nothing which does not have precedence in a standard game can be brought into a game under this system. A straightforward. In spite of the ability for Game Masters until now. to house rule their own games.

there are certain combinations that make powerful characters and certain combinations that make weak characters. Game Breaking Possibilities Of course. While this should be monitored. they have the ability to put together particularly lethal combinations. Characters that are willing to utilize a restricted power. In the end. the need to purchase 1st level spell slots is not very high if a character is generating a 10th level character. For example. However. Power gamers who have a power gaming Game Master will find themselves challenged like never before in this system.Mentalis Design level game balance designed into the standard game while the Game Master and the players are familiarizing themselves with the rules. spell. Game Masters should almost always be aware of the main design goals that become apparent as characters gain experience. Role-playing players who find themselves under a Game Master that likewise emphasizes role-playing will find their depth of games increased as well. or channeling list can often add that aspect to their design for a very reasonable cost. this system opens wide the door for game breaking combinations. there are some ways to use the system to its fullest and Game Masters should be aware of these design strategies. Even still. Creating Characters Above 1 st Level Creating characters above 1st level can lead to some imbalances if some guidelines are not considered. When players are allowed to design exactly the character that they want. the character would certainly have purchased the lower level spell slots. Characters built from 1st level are likely to purchase abilities when they are needed. but so long as the Game Master and players are of the same mind in building characters this system should be good for any table. Instead. it is also true that characters who are built with those intentions also typically paint themselves into fairly small niches. the temptation would be to buy access to the lower spell levels but spend all the experience for spell slots at the higher levels. especially in the latter character levels. Characters generated at higher levels 31 . Characters that are able to limit themselves to a three or fewer level-variable class abilities and then mix in a few progression-variable or use-variable abilities often find that they have spent their experience well. a character that takes on too many character abilities that are based on the levelvariable model will find themselves falling short of their design goals as the character progresses. Every table and every game is going to be different. This is especially true when discussing powers and abilities whose power does not increase once purchased. It is about bringing fun back into character design. Had this character been generated from 1st level and played through 10th level. Another likely area of abuse is in the purchase of abilities. this system is about flexibility instead of limitation. In general. Characters that intentionally buy three good save progressions and look to buy better than average aspects of more than one other category also find it hard to keep up with the experience demands. Characters that are willing to buy higher cost Hit Dice in the beginning and then lower Hit Dice at the end will have more experience to spend than characters who try to skimp in the beginning and have to make up the difference as the total number of Hit Dice increase. but they should also become familiar with apparent design flaws as well. Characters that rely too heavily of constant abilities also tend to find themselves falling short of necessary experience. Game Masters who are aware of their player’s character’s flaws are much more likely to have players with wellrounded characters. If Game Masters allow characters to be generated above 1st level there is a need to ensure that the character is designed with balance in mind as well as the character’s history.

it is reasonable to think that not all members of a race would have every aspect of one’s heritage to the same degree. Some of the abilities can be kept as part of an unadjusted 1st level racial package equivalent to that which an LA +0 race would receive. It is possible to break down a Level Adjusted race into purchasable subcomponents. Fantasy world genetics is a funny thing – where races can often freely intermingle. 450 for a d10. At the very least. Prerequisites can take the form of certain skill ranks. feat purchases. the means for buying ability score improvements are also integrated into the system already. The best benefit of this system is that the concept of Level Adjustment goes away completely. Additionally. a player can build as much or as little of the racial adjustment into their character. so each Level Adjusted race can be broken down into a fair 1st level racial ability score adjustment that is equivalent to the rest of the LA +0 races. a character built under this system has a character level equal to what his experience dictates it should be. if a player wants to play a character with 3 racial Hit Die and a Level Adjustment of +2 then they would effectively already be a 5th level character. These prices are for a character that has already bought their first three Hit Dice. This problem is best solved through establishing prerequisites for higher level abilities. so the racial Hit Die can simply be ignored. and that is what the following paragraphs will hope to explain. The remaining abilities can be converted into constant or variable abilities at an appropriate level based on the Level Adjustment. It should be noted that Game Masters who follow this method might consider placing racial prerequisites upon the abilities taken from Level Adjusted races. they would gain all aspects of the Level Adjusted race for the lowest experience total of a level 5 character. The simplest solution to the problem is to figure out the Effective Character Level of a player’s design and simply set that value as the point at which the player collects experience. or 540 for a d12. Once Level Adjustments are seen in this light breaking them down can be quite easy. Any additional increases to ability scores can be bought following the normal rules. Furthermore. the Hit Dice are the easiest to remove. Essentially. In any case. 360 for a d8. This system already has a means for buying Hit Die from the very beginning. In this kind of a world. For example. In this system to follow. that does not need to be the only solution to the question of Level Adjustment. this system proposes treating Level Adjusted races as vastly reduced base classes which can be broken down using the rules provided. the only thing that remains is dealing with the racial abilities gained by each race.CoMplete Control will not automatically purchase the lower level abilities that a character gaining levels by adventuring would. it opens up the door to character history becoming much more significant at character generation! 32 . it is imperative that the prerequisites make sense for the ability in question. In this manner a player desiring to play a character with a Level Adjusted race can buy their racial abilities as though they were constant or variable abilities. As with every other character in the game. or the purchase of prior abilities. Level Adjustments happen because a playable race receives more in their racial package than seems normally appropriate. 270 for a d6. However. What To Do With Characters That Have A Level Adjustment This consideration is a bit more simply solved than it originally seems. In fact. when they go to buy their next Hit Die they would pay 180 XP for a d4. Thus. there is both a simple and a more complex solution to the problem. They are then able to purchase other aspects to their character at an appropriate price as they have experience to spend. At this point. In breaking down a Level Adjusted race.

it should be understood that the abilities gained at any level should technically be able to be purchased using the experience gained before they were able to level. The understanding that a level’s gained abilities are actually gleaned from the prior level’s experience is one of the most fundament aspects of this project – but I’ll confess that it was one of the most difficult to remember and apply. The first level of a character usually includes at least one save where the character not only gets an increase of one. assume that I am speaking about the result coming out of all the classes being blended together into Percentage Hit Die 12% 12% 12% < 1% 6% 12% 12% Controllable Aspects Base Attack Bonus Saves Proficiencies Ability Increases Skills Feats 33 . knowing this fact makes the explanation easier. The character in a typical game receives four times the normal skill points at first level. It is unfortunate that it worked out this way. and that can be found on any experience chart. For those who don’t particularly care why it works so long as it does. the system can be used easily enough without explanation. This is why many of the tables included in this work have a beautiful mathematical progression if the first (and sometimes second) value is ignored. remember that in a standard game a character has access to all abilities of a certain level the moment the Game Master allows the character to increase their level. I’d like to spend the rest of this space talking about how the numbers and progressions were chosen within this project. Characters who channel incantations like the NexusTC gain two at their first level. With those two disclaimers out of the way. for the time being realize that the first level of a character actually breaks most of the progressions. continue reading. but it is an unavoidable consequence of having a game where the rules of character progression don’t always apply to the very first level. in all aspects of character design where the first level of a character does not follow the rules for the remaining 19 levels – the first level is ignored. Outside of Hit Dice progression and class abilities. Also. The progression is chosen for the last 19 levels and a random – yet appropriate – value is used for the levels that do not fit the progression. but of two! Some characters gain spell casting progression for spell levels of zero and one. Usually this occurs as soon as the characters have enough experience to increase their level. skipping this section of explanation will not hinder your game play. In order for this understanding of game power to be maintained. The underlying principle of this system is found in the systematic method that a character gains experience. If you will. As was stated earlier in this work. Because not all the people who want to use the system also want to know how and why the system works. However. virtually all other aspects of character design are broken by the very first level of gaming! So.Mentalis Design Designer’s Notes Part of the beauty of a system like this is that the logic behind the design is able to be explained for those who are interested. The hardest part of the project was determining the typical baseline for a completely average character in a completely average class. these notes have been pulled out and separated from the rules. So. For those who want to know why the system works.

CoMplete Control one class that represents the average of them all. As explained earlier. The strengths of one class are balanced by the weaknesses of another until a truly generic character remains. The average of these is the d8. an astute observer of this discussion should have already realized that the formula breaks down for the first Hit Die. 150 for the d10. the Game Master could use a random number generator or apply a formula that gives standard Hit Points for each non-standard die. this proposal sounded fair. The last die is (120)(20-1) or 2. A character wanting a d7 could pay 105 XP for their second die using the same logic. Hit Dice This is by far and away the easiest of the components to nail down. is that at each level 12% of a completely generic character’s experience should be spent towards each aspect. And before you ask. That was easy. The third die is (120) (3-1) or 240 XP. All of the other aspects on the table were determined to be of relatively equal importance to a generic character – although admittedly individual classes rely on each of those aspects differently. This always equals 120 times the previous character level. Also remember the first principle as it is applied to the results of the table above because it gives us the guiding principle behind most of this work. all the values that were chosen for the first level acquisitions 34 . simply realize that 120 XP divided by 8 is 15. While this sounds bland on the very surface. What that table implies. then. but for the sake of this work I’ll establish the basic guidelines for those aspects that are controllable. The neat aspect of this analysis is that technically a Game Master could allow characters to use nonstandard Hit Die. What this does is set a benchmark of 66% of a character’s experience being spent in these aspects. d6. Regardless of the size of the Hit Die. and class abilities are intentionally left off the table at this point. magic. Extrapolating that information onto the other dice gives the base cost of 60 for the d4. the fact that not all of these aspects increase with each level makes them all unique. you’ll notice the obvious absence of psionics. To determine actual Hit Points. This was difficult to determine. d8. From there. Looking at the table of controllable aspects. A character wanting a d9 would simply pay 135 XP for their second die. but for now believe that from the perspective of the proposed 190.280 XP. 90 for the d6. Ability increases are about half as consuming as the other aspects listed.000 XP needed to make a maximum level character their cost is insignificant. magic. and class abilities. the base cost for the second Hit Die is equal to 15 times the number of sides on the die. The anomaly that is iroficiencies will be discussed later. The goal for the per level expenditure for an average progression of each of the aspects in the table is: XP = (12%)(experience gained during the previous level). and 180 for the d12. Essentially. Of course. simply multiply the base cost times the previous number of Hit Die already purchased and you almost completely fill out the rest of the Hit Dice table. d10. The second d8 Hit Die is equal to (120)(2-1) or 120 XP. To convert these prices fairly among the remaining dice. 1 minus 1 is always zero and the equation always turns out a result of zero. I’ll take each one in order of complexity. We only have all the values for the 2nd d8 through the 20th d8. and d12. To explain what is meant by this. 135 equals 9 times 15. Hit Dice come in five forms: d4. the rest of the attributes of character design were certainly not that easy! But we’re not quite finished with Hit Die. Considering that psionics. Using the formula given above for determining the per level expenditure gives the results shown earlier in the d8 column of the table detailing the XP cost for each Hit Die purchased. Dividing each of these values by the amount of experience needed to get to the new level always gives a result of 12%.

215 Where this really comes into training. value for a Base Attack Bonus at a constant 12% through each or even most of his enemies.685. After all. That divided linearly over only choice was what to do with the fact 15 increases. Once the value was chosen. Mergil focused on his sword make tabulation easier. making him a better XP was chosen as the initial play is in keeping the progression fighter than any of his allies. Finding the that a character receives four times cumulative sum of the the amount of skill points at 1st level in numbers 1 through 15 is easy. To from level 1 to 20. If the ideal total XP of a It’s hard to believe that skills finished generic character is 190.800 XP needs to be difficult choice for this system.800 by 105 gives level completely messes up any hope of 217 (rounded down to the a true mathematical progression nearest whole number). it fits well among the other costs of building a 1st level character. I considered this a success. Remember. this becomes more difficult once the determination of the average Base Attack Bonus is made.500 XP as a “free pool” would spend 40. It should also be noted that a character with a full Base Attack progression that was given 1. Once again. the first Hit Die always costs half of the second Hit Die. of +2. occurs for 3 levels. At the beginning.4% or their 191. If 215 is the base value skill at any level also wreaks havoc on the 35 . or (215)(4-1). In fact. Additionally. and the result is 105. or 5. or 215(3-1). then 12% of that total is 22. filling out the table is just as easy as it was for Hit Die. the breaks down for level 1 because 1 minus 1 fact that players can choose any rank in a always equals zero. a standard game. In each case. In this manner. It does not follow the exact progression of the rest of the table. Base Attack Bonus can progress in an integral pattern at each level. Even better. but it actually XP. I had to make a the 22. the first Dividing 22.960. The third increase is 430.500 XP.000 would be the next least complicated XP. A character with a ½ Base Attack Bonus progression would spend 9. Considering that the number is only 115 XP off of the 12% mark that was established. Base Attack Bonus One might think that Base Attack Bonus is as simple as Hit Die. The progression begins at the 2nd level. and then takes one level off before repeating.675 XP. The problem that this choice grants is that now the progression doesn’t happen along a linear path. What this implies is that is. the formula of the levels. What this means is that the average character purchases an increase to their Base Attack Bonus 15 times over Skills 20 levels. However. the total XP that an iconic Cleric would spend for their Base Attack Bonus is 22. I chose the ¾ progression found in the Cleric class to be the average.1%.Mentalis Design were chosen largely at random so as to make as much sense as possible.800 progression to figure out. For the sake of this work and for obvious reasons. The fourth increase is 645. for Base Attack Bonus. but it does make logical sense. a character with a ¾ Base Attack Bonus progression will have a total XP expenditure of slightly less than 12% because we rounded 217 down to 215. or 21. then 110 XP seemed a reasonable choice for the cost of a Base Attack Bonus of +1.

5 ranks for 120 XP. Following that logic. Those limits are arbitrary. increasing the intelligence of a character by two points increases the number of skill ranks gained by one. Simply continuing with this logic fills out the rest of the chart for non-humans. Dividing 120 by 4. Of course. A human with Intelligence 12 should be able to buy 5.8. If a non-human with Intelligence of 10 can buy 3. I chose a system that would work around both of these problems. Continuing with this pattern fills out the rest of the human column of the chart as well. but the cost does not increase or decrease outside the range. the average number of skills purchased at 3rd level should equal 240 XP. and so forth. Additionally. Skill rank prices would then begin with the fifth rank because it cannot ever be purchased until 2nd level or beyond.CoMplete Control mathematical progression meant to balance the skill rank number with the level at which it is normally gained in a standard game. The average number of skills purchased at 2nd level should total 120 XP. While I was tempted to round this number up to 35 to make the numbers clean. per rank. then a human with Intelligence of 10 should be able to buy 4. should a Game Master desire to set different upper or lower boundaries they can easily use the patterns and logic expressed here to find those values and use them if desired. a character with Intelligence 14 should be able to buy 5. If a character with an intelligence of 10 can buy 3.5 ranks for 120 XP. Finding the average of 2 and 8 gives 5 as a result.5 ranks for 120 XP.5 skill ranks for 120 XP. a bit of calculation is required.67. The calculation is the same as above and it results in 26. the skill rating for each skill rank for a non-human character with average Intelligence of 10 remained 34 XP each. Few classes give 8 skill ranks per level. Characters can have an Intelligence score above and below these levels.5 ranks for 120 XP. then a character with an intelligence of 12 should be able to buy 4. it does not represent a true average among the classes.5 gives a result of 34 XP per rank as an average – remembering that these are actually the 5th skill ranks. or 22 XP. In fact. To alleviate this dilemma completely. and I established the limit at Intelligence 6 for the lower bound and Intelligence 22 for the upper bound. It was stated earlier that the 2nd level skill ranks gained should equal 120 XP. In a standard game. Feats For here on to the end. the first four ranks – normally all gained at the 1st level – would cost the same. Thus. The result is 21. The temptation is to use 5 as this number because 8 is the maximum class value for skill ranks and 2 is the lowest. I’ve found that the best overall approximation for the average skill ranks is 3. there are limits to how cheaply or how expensive skill ranks can get before the game runs the risk of being broken or too expensive. my experience tells me that there are far more classes that give 2 skill points as any other amount. the method used to integrate Intelligence score as well as racial bonus skill ranks mandated that round numbers would simply not be possible where skills were concerned. In this system. Obviously. However. The only thing that is left is to determine the average number of skill ranks gained by a purely generic character.5 ranks per level. rounded up to 22 XP.5 gives a result of 26.5 ranks by paying 21. What this allows is for a progression to be developed using the 12% formula listed at the beginning of this chapter. To determine the XP for characters of differing Intelligence. even an increase of 1 XP per skill rank would cause effects in the final tally. Dividing 120 XP by 3.67. The column for racial bonus skill rating follows the same logic and gives the same result. the formulas involve another level of logic simply because the remaining character attributes do not necessarily 36 . or 27 XP. That result rounds up nicely to 27 XP per rank.8. while this would be numerically correct.

6% of the proposed 190.000 XP difference emerging. and 100 XP is a good round number that produces good results when used in an average 1st level character build. Saves The process of figuring out the save progression cost within a character seems like 37 . which is 10.000 XP. The only thing left was to pick a random number for the initial feat cost. the results on the table are reasonably neat numbers to use. On average. The experience to get from the bottom value of one pair of levels to the bottom of another pair of levels is always 4. a nice pattern comes forward.260 XP on those feats. which was the preferred goal stated at the beginning of this section. This fact nearly makes feat purchasing impossible to calculate. That means that many classes would be expected to expend a minimum of around 500 XP of their initial experience pool – and that assumes that the price for the first feat would be just 10 XP! Those classes like the Ranger that end up with a total of three feats at their first level would be spending 1. As has been said before. they increase sporadically or at best every other level. In order to compensate for starting the progression one feat later and the subsequent lowering of all the feats costs. and this would become the beginning of the process. Then compare it to the sum of the 15th and 16th levels and work your way down the list. which is 13. remember that the average number of feats that a character gains over a 20 level career is between 10 and 11. a character gains a feat every other level through various means. You’ll soon see the pattern of 4. This demonstrates that while math can do a great job of handling the progression from 2nd level through 20th level. If the totals for level pairs are examined. Sure. Given the need to play with the numbers for the sake of keeping 1st level characters at a functional build. the complexity of 1st level character generation tragically plays with this progression. What makes that nice is that the average number of feats divides nicely into the total number of character levels. the easiest means was to find a progression that gives the desired total. But many classes incorporate feat acquisition in their class progression – and they seldom do it in a predictable pattern. A character with 10 feats would spend 20. the step in cost between the feats needed to be increased to a value more than 480 XP.1% of the proposed 190. 7 of those feats are gained through the character levels – which all classes get. These numbers surround the desired 12%.100 XP on those feats.000 XP is 480 XP. However. As a demonstration of the numbers. Furthermore.000 XP greater than the prior increase.000 XP. {Start by adding the 19th and 20th levels together and comparing them to the 17th and 18th levels. creating the table for feats would need to be more of an art than a science for the first two costs. On average. classes gain just over 10 feats in total. Several classes gain a feat at first level in addition to the character feat gained at first level.Mentalis Design increase level by level. Having a base starting value of 160 XP for the 2nd feat and having an average increase of 520 XP results in a progression that approximates the desired goal of 12% expenditure. feats are gained at first level and then every level that is a multiple of three. A character with 11 feats would spend 25. Instead. The other three are gained through the average class progression. the initial cost would be on the second feat and would thus lower the total. there is something nice that happens when the average number of feats per class is calculated. What this means for the math behind the tables is that a general progression can be easily fit into a nice and neat full level package.} 12% of 4.470 XP out of their initial experience just on feats. The sporadic nature of feat acquisition seems to make them difficult to price. If the progression could start at the second feat chosen.

a mathematical approach could only work so well.1% of a character’s experience. it is just that the poor save is earned later in the character’s life so the cost is much less significant at the level it is earned. so the poor save is really only the six cheapest costs of the total cost for a good save progression. If we ignore that first level as has become the custom. As with feats. Using an initial baseline of 7% and using the argument from the feat section above that a character’s available experience grows by 4. this mark implied that a poor save would account for 1. The cost is the same. a character with one good save. the first two points of the good save occur within the first level and thus imply that the progression cannot begin with the first point of bonus and still be functional. those first two bonuses would have to be ignored for the purposes of developing a good progression. and through a bit of experimentation the value of 70 was chosen to best represent the overall data in the progression. on average there are only a few more classes that have only one good save than have two good saves. one poor save. the fact that a good save results in a +12 at the end of 20 levels seems to indicate that the assumptions used by the feats would be less likely to apply in this case. The cost for each increase to a save costs more than the one before it. However.CoMplete Control a difficult job. The formation of the table is just as much an art as a science. but it should be realized that in this system it isn’t as easy as simply saying a good save will be twice as much as a poor save. figuring out the progression for the good save becomes the most important. a character with a good save really receives a +10 over 19 levels. There are several approaches to finding that value. 38 . some classes receive two or even three good saves. This implies that the true average lies within a character that has about one and a half good saves. A base value needed to be chosen as well.000 XP every two levels it is easy to see that the step increase for the progression should be 280 XP. In order to make a good mathematical progression that also allows first level character to be built reasonably well. Those totals appeared mathematically fair. 45 XP and 60 XP were chosen because they were round numbers. Making the first value so small as to be insignificant was not an option. In the end. Another problem is that since a character receives three saves. Thus. and a character with all good saves would spend 21% of their total experience on saves. That begins to look more and more like the feat progression after all. 7% was the initial mark. Interestingly enough.2% of their experience on saves. This is particularly true because while all classes receive one good save. each save must be less than 12% so that the sum of the save expenditures for an average character approaches 12%. a character with two good saves would spend about 15. but with the third value being 70 XP it only gave so much room. the initial two values needed to be chosen. As with feats. and one save exactly halfway in between would spend just under 12% of their experience. 280 XP turned out to be a near ideal amount of increase for each step in the progression. In the end analysis. Once the experience totals for the progression were established for the third point of save and higher.1% of their experience on saves. it is important to note that in a good save progression a class earns a +2 at first level. Filling out the cost for the poor save would simply mean applying the cost for the good save and checking the percentages. The nice thing about this system is that there is no distinction between the cost of a +1 on a good save and a +1 on a poor save. Perhaps even more importantly. That would mean that a character with one good save and two poor saves would spend around 9. Interestingly enough. Also. Considering that a good save would make up the lion’s share of a character’s save expenditure.

and while both numbers will not break a high level character the experience spent on each save is not insignificant to a first level character. In the system say that of the 300 XP proposed above. a character Having trained as both an assassin above that half could go to each buying access to both and as a marksman. there were three characters are not going to be categories within each type. which should be plenty of options for cost) + (heavy armor cost) should also be 150 any character. Most armor. proficiencies needed Individual heavy armors become 15 XP to be priced so that apiece. It didn’t seem level.Mentalis Design mathematically could become (X) + (2X) + (3X) = 150. it seemed fair to anyway. That equation nicely works out to 6X = 150. and exotic. the equations groups. the cost of the right to allow players to buy exotic first two feats that a character incurs weapons at will. or one-fifth the cost.

Additionally. but after that it becomes That value was used as a too high for most players to spend baseline to determine the without a good reason. and heavy.

Once the aspects of character design that have already been discussed are tabulated. Since we are only going for an approximation – and hopefully one that gives fairly round values – an interesting thing happens when we drop Z from the equation. If all the level-variable abilities were to cost the same.700 should give us a good answer. However. 6% of 16.18% was to be the average total goal that 3% would make a good per ability goal. In a standard game. with each subsequent refinement each class had to be recalculated using the new data set. If Z equal the initial cost and X equals the upgrade cost then the formula is simply: Z + X + 2X+ 3X+ 4X+ 5X+ 6X+ 7X+ 8X+ 9X+ 10X+ 11X+ 12X+ 13X+ 14X+ 15X+ 16X+ 17X+ 18X + 19X. This means that an ideal mathematical progression for class abilities would increase with each level and give a total between 16% and 18% of the total experience spent. 4th. This is a number that produces satisfactory results. {Start by examining the total experience needed to reach 17th. then X = 30. Using 360 XP as the base figure and 960 XP as the increase amount makes it easy to fill out the chart for the 2nd. there is a little math that can be helpful in making proper estimated guesses. the completely generic character has 66% of their experience spent.200 XP is the target. This goal translates into an XP amount of 5. If 190X = 5.000 XP increase in the discussion about feats. 18th. In other words. a leap of faith had to be exerted and the math had to be tested from there. it is only a matter of picking an 40 . and 20th levels and compare them with the experience needed to reach the lower quadruplets of levels and you will see a pattern begin to emerge} Examining the pattern reveals that each increase from one quadruplet to the next is 16.400 XP and 34. and even 6th ability score increases. Class Abilities The math for class abilities is nearly impossible to determine. 19th.000 XP is 960 XP.000 XP.5%.CoMplete Control Ability Score Increases Increasing Ability Scores is actually one of the easier increases to figure out of those that do not increase every level. This reduces to Z + 190X. an ideal goal had to be determined.539 XP or 16. In this system. Ability Score increases come at a very regular and predetermined rate. then the equation representing this is easy to figure out. the average expenditure per class on class abilities is 31. The only difficult part is that they increase every four levels rather than every one or two levels like the others. At this point. then 6% of each increase should give the number that is used to determine the cost increase from one level to the next. the same logic that applied to feats and save progression can apply here.700 XP as closely as possible.700XP. If the cost of a level-variable ability is related to the experience gained over the previous level. we can see that Z + 190X = 5. At some point. If the goal is to make this total approximate 5.700 XP. However. Multiplying 6% and the total amount of experience that a character has when they receive their first ability increase in a standard game results in 360 XP. 5th. 3rd. Since the premise put forth in the opening paragraphs of this chapter was to have the experience spent on ability scores set to 6% of the total. Using the same logic that gave us the 4. It seemed reasonable to assume that if 16% . it is far simpler to simply guess at a base value and then use mathematical progressions to determine the rest of the pattern and whether the pattern gives a proper result. Of course. The process began with the class abilities that are level dependant. Setting the base value for the first increase should also be easy. Thus each increase should differ from the prior increase by 960 XP. we can arrive at the differential between ability score increases. This means that an average class ability expenditure of between 30.

This means that the increase cost should be one-third the cost of a constant ability of the same level and the base cost should be the remaining twothirds.5 times the increase cost. because the Rogue’s sneak attack is a signature to the class and it should be priced accordingly. there is no difference in the game mechanics between a constant ability and a use-variable or progression-variable ability with only one progression. The reason for considering divisibility by 3 will be discussed shortly. Even a powerful ability gained at 12th level can be improved twice (for a total of 3 uses per day or at its third progression) for 8. for example. Of course. This is why it was desirably to choose a number for constant abilities that could be nicely divided by 3. it seemed reasonable to have the initial cost equal 1. It was desirable to have the base cost equal to twice the use or progression cost. Thus. these last kinds of abilities are actually easy to figure out. As to the remaining class abilities. The first is that low level abilities can grow substantially without becoming too expensive. constant abilities often do increase in power the higher they are gained. but 270 was chosen because in the end this progression gave the best results.745 XP is not evenly divisible by 20. is a 1st level ability that needs to increase a total of 10 times. The second desirable outcome of this process is that even higher level abilities can gain multiple uses without costing incomprehensible prices. The fact that it costs only a little less than a level-variable ability progressed through 20 levels is ideal. those constant abilities that are gained at the twentieth level should cost the most. then it is reasonable to set a maximum value for constant abilities around that range as well. The only remaining abilities to be determined were progression-variable abilities and usevariable abilities. but it results in 287. the Rogue spends a total of 5.Mentalis Design initial value that makes logical sense. If the levelvariable abilities each cost 5. round number that would make a system friendly to use. As was hinted at in the beginning. a first level constant ability costs 270 XP. Thus. It follows that a number that is divisible by 20 would make a great beginning value for determining the base price of a constant ability. Either 290 or 280 would work well. Following the math given above through the whole cost of the ability.25. so it is almost always fair to say that the higher a constant ability becomes available the more it should cost. Since these abilities are related in terms of progression. This is not a good.745 XP over the course of twenty levels. In this case. they should be priced equivalently. This is significant. one of the progressions had to be determined first and the other progression would be made 41 . There are two desirable outcomes that happen with this application of logic. The Rogue’s sneak attack ability. Instead. the numbers worked out well once a bit of mathematical reasoning and testing was done at the beginning with level-variable abilities.640 XP total. In the end.745 XP for a level-variable ability taken the whole way to level 20. This pattern continues throughout the whole level by level progression. Using that logic and the progression that constant abilities are simply 270 XP times the lowest level that they can be gained. but the fact that 270 and 300 are both nicely divisible by 3 as well they become even more ideal. Since it should cost a bit more to buy access to an ability than to increase its power. Psionics and Magic There was no simple way to determine the cost for psionics and magic together.130 XP for its ability. the work above set up the work to follow. 5. A progressionvariable or use-variable ability should cost 180 XP to grant access and an additional 90 XP to buy its first use. this gives a total accumulation of 5. Either number works. Furthermore. it was desirable to keep the math behind their progression identical if possible. For example. the value of 45 was determined.

With the increase already 42 .780 XP building their character with their spell casting abilities removed. A wizard only spends 93. That leaves almost 100. spell levels must be purchased. but it is a circumstance that can be worked around. In this system. knowing that the progression stops after 9th level rather than continuing through the whole class. the cumulative result would be about 8% of an iconic Wizard’s total XP spent on spell level acquisition. However.CoMplete Control to conform to the progression of the other. Because spell casting – with spell levels and slots within those levels – is much more complicated than psionics. Spell slots are also gained with a very precise progression. because the magic system was chosen to have 9 levels instead of 10 and thus spell level acquisition stops being gained at level 17 instead of level 19. Using that logic. so its experience cost will be not be explained again within this argument. it should be asserted that once again spell casting messes with the mathematical perfection across the 20 levels. That cost is best handled as a level-variable ability. Using the assertion set in the opening paragraphs of this chapter. Fortunately. spell casting progression is very systematic in the wizard. Third. an absolutely generic character is going to spend roughly 66% of the gained experience on everything besides magic and class abilities. spell slots must be purchased. and knowing that the nature of 1st level purchasing throws off the 0-level and 1-level costs. Additionally. If class abilities were designed to accommodate about 17%. Using 12% as a guide. it was easiest to start with magic and then conform the easier psionics to the magic progression. this isn’t overly helpful information because not all classes use magic and abilities to the same level if at all! So. That is an unfortunate circumstance of the way that the game had been designed.5 SRD and find out exactly how much experience a generic Wizard consumes in everything except their spell abilities. it was a number that had worked well in determining the feat progression earlier. The fact that a wizard gains both 0-level spells and 1-level spells at their 1st level indicates that a true progression from start to finish will not give a desired result. a value of 12% was selected as the desired outcome for determining the total cost of each spell level. Spells levels are gained every two levels. but it seemed logical considering that spell level acquisition really does not give a spell caster any power. That would make the cost easier to figure out. the math would not be as clean as was found in the section on saves – or even ability score progression. the easiest method of determining the cost for magical progression was to build a generic Wizard according to the 3. spell level acquisition does not occur after 9th level spells are gained so it made sense to pick a slightly larger number than would be expected because of the offset from not having to spend any later experience on this acquisition. So. Second. remember from the section on feats that each increase should be 480 XP on a 12% model applied to a progression that gains an increase every other level. the caster level has to be bought and increased. First.000 XP to be used in generating the costs for spell casting. this would leave 17% for magic and psionics. This seemed like a fair number considering that wizards in general spend over half of the total experience on their spell casting ability. The 12% was a random number. Doing that gives an astonishing result. so this third one should also carry the greatest burden of cost. Finally. the progression would need to be determined from 2nd through 9th level spells and then the data from that would help guide the pricing of the 0 and 1 level information. Unfortunately. Of course. It is this third purchase that truly gives the wizard its power. there are three aspects to being able to cast spells. To obtain the cost for each spell level.

If X equals the cost spell slot costs. 4(6X) + 4(7X) + 4(8X) + 4(9X).

000 XP is 72. This is good.625 XP by 343 (the Psion’s power point total) gives a result of 197. Thus. This only leaves the determination for the cost of psionic power points.117 XP. the character would need 112. The numbers are also favorable when analyzing the iconic class builds and the level-by-level experience costs for other classes as well. The Wizard spends 67. If X is the base cost and Y is the increase between incantations.883 XP. and 9 times 500 XP would make up 4. The Psion and the Wizard are nearly identical builds. the psionic progression falls easily into place. Wilder. This is not a bad thing.000 XP –near the upper limit for 20th level characters – the cost per spell slot rises to 300 XP.500 XP of the remaining difference. This increase in quantity needed removes the necessity to have the cost rise as well. This implies a difference of 1.000 XP. Cleric. and it lifts both the Wizard and Sorcerer into the accepted range of experience.883 XP. That would leave 5.000 XP. If these classes are roughly equivalent. Now that the magic progression has been determined. and this is easily enough accomplished. These restricted classes have less versatility at their disposal. it should be noted that 36 times 2. The first three incantations certainly do not follow the pattern of the fourth incantation and those that follow. Considering that the fourth incantation begins a pattern and the first three come in the first two levels where costs need to be minimized.833 XP. There is no need to scale the cost.CoMplete Control be considerably short when applied to the 20th level Sorcerer and Wizard builds. This is a good number. In the interest of discovering figures that are easy to use. That leaves 77. if the cleric is pushed to an overall expenditure of around 209. This number can be rounded to 195 to make it easier to use as well as give a nice result within each iconic class. it made sense to find a mathematical progression that puts the lion’s share of the experience upon the last nine incantations.883 XP to be split among the incantations. merely a design element that must be overcome. This cost reduction determination was done by building each class with reduced manifester/caster abilities as though it had full access to a spell list and then finding a percentage that worked well across the board. X + (X+Y) + (X+2Y) + (X+3Y) + (X+4Y) + (X+5Y) + (X+6Y) + (X+7Y) + (X+8Y) < 77. If a Nexus is built with everything except its invocations in place. Channeling At first glance. This implies that 9X + 36Y < 77.625 XP on spell slots and familiar. That is why that value was included within the table. Those classes who have access to a power or spell list that has restricted options shouldn’t be required to pay the same amount of experience as a Psion. One final note should be added with regard to classes who have limited spell casting ability. then simply finding a numeric cost for each power point that approximates the cost for the Wizard’s spell slot and summon familiar ability should do the trick. because in terms of power the Cleric is powerful enough to justify an overall experience expenditure over the proposed 190. because the rising number of power points needed to manifest higher level powers implies the need to buy more with each level. the table for channeling looks highly disjointed. simply swapping out the spell slots for power points and removing the Wizard’s familiar. Wizard. Dividing 67. then a formula for the last nine incantations is fairly easy to find. In the end.16 XP per power point. The value that seemed to work the best as well as give reasonable numbers was 50%. or Sorcerer would.383 XP to be divided among the 44 . their cost is reduced. there is no need to alter what is functionally the same for both classes. once again the progression is bitten by the fact that the first level disrupts the pattern. However. The cost for accessing psionic power levels is identical to the spell levels.

But like all good games. In the end. there are areas to be exploited by those who understand the system best. There will no doubt be readers who disagree with a few assumptions stated in this chapter. eighteen of the twenty levels came in under the expectation. And we all know what they say about absolute power. and is only 483 XP short of the goal. The Game Masters and the players at each table can determine their individual comfort with how much leniency to allow when applying these rules to character generation. Any system that sets out to use math to break down the individual aspects of each character can (and will) be exploited. This totals 900 XP. It works fairly well at identifying classes that are underdeveloped as well as those that may be a little too robust. It is a system that allows a player to build exactly the character they want so long as their expectations of power are reasonable. There are no doubt readers who might suggest a different pattern or progression. I hope the system has been an inspirational read. and have fun gaming! 45 . and if nothing else I hope that this system has kindled a fire within you to try out a few builds that you always wanted to do but never thought were possible. there are aspects to this system of which Game Masters need to be aware. Each table may find different comfort levels in applying the rules of this system. There is certainly more than one way to break down a character into the sum of the acquisition of all its parts. Considering the overall build is 189. makes a nice pattern. and 400 XP. Is a Game Master comfortable allowing progressions to be taken further than would normally be allowed in a standard 20 level game? Is a Game Master comfortable allowing skill ranks or abilities to be purchased whenever the funds are available without setting limits on when and how much can be bought at a given character level? These are the kinds of questions whose answers depend largely on the type of players sitting around the table. 300 XP. With freedom to build the character that is truly desired comes absolute power over character creation. Conclusion on the Designer’s Notes The fun thing about mathematics is that while the numbers don’t lie. However. it made sense to make the first three incantations 200 XP. The goal of this system isn’t to replace a system that has limitations with another system that has different limitations.Mentalis Design first three incantations which do not fit into the progression of incantations gained at the later levels.517 XP the result was satisfying. the Game Master needs to understand the system and set reasonable limits on how far each aspect of this system can be pushed. Go. Since the fourth incantation would cost 500 XP. Over the course of a character’s life. Power gamers can use this system as well – if not better – than a standard game. it is a work that succeeds in accomplishing the task at hand generally well across the board. This work is not the final word in this process. In the end. It works well in accomplishing a reasonable approach to designing non-standard characters. 483 XP is rather insignificant. When placed within an iconic Nexus build. there are often multiple equations to accomplish the same task. However. The final remaining piece that remained was to check the numbers and make sure that the progression fits within the expectations set for each level. The two levels where the total experience spent exceeded the expectation were by 435 XP and 72 XP respectively. The goal of this system is to allow players to build characters that they want to build and have fun. this system works.
