Favored Soul Extra Language

We will file suggestions here that did not make the cut. Don't expect detailed responses, but the most common reasons are:
- implementing the suggestion is impractical, or too much work for the gain
- the suggestion is thematically against our design philosophy
- the suggestion is too detailed/low-level
Keep your suggestions broad and focused on RP benefits, please, not detailed suggestions of how to tweak X class.

Favored Soul Extra Language

Post by skellyboi » Sun Oct 04, 2020 2:43 pm

I'd suggest changing this to either a % immunity, or raising it above 5/-, which is something that can be gained through a (relatively) inexpensive permanent essence, and makes this particular feature of the class useless.

It also might be nice to, similar to the shaman suggestion from a few days ago, have an additional language granted, or some other RP cookie for the class beyond simply being a spontaneous divine caster. And, I believe gear was being added, but currently both Favored Soul and Shaman lack the ability to use any of the custom staves. A simple and quick fix might be to add Shaman to the druid staves as a class that can access them, and Favored Soul to the cleric staves.

Thanks for reading!

Re: Favored Soul Energy Resistance

I'm going to agree to this - Especialy the language. Giving them say, a planar language in tune with their alignment would make a lot of sense.

ADDENDUM
`Regarding the complaint about Resist Energy being superfluous, due to defensive essence, the two stack, so it allows Favored Souls to get 10/- resistance to elements.`
- Rambling Midgit

I'm going to rename this suggestion however to extra planar language, as that idea is still solid.
This too shall pass.

(I now have a DM Discord (I hope) It's DM GrumpyCat#7185 but please keep in mind I'm very busy IRL so I can't promise how quick I'll get back to you.)
