View Full Version : Fun subrace idea: Pariah

(Shamelessly ripped of from WH40K. Obviously.)

The idea of the Pariah is simple: they're someone who magic doesn't like. They start with Antimagic at 1.000, and get a decent (maybe 0.800 or 0.900?) modifer to it. They cannot learn anything magical, and (obviously) cannot be mages or priests. They don't get any other unusual attributes, except maybe a boost to Saving Throw or somesuch.

Why is this cool?

Because this way, you can have an antimagic archer without kludging it up with a Dark Sword of Nothingness or whatever... Or, if you want, a ninj... er, antimagic rogue. Which would be seriously cool.

Also, because it would be nice to replace the Hermit subrace with something exactly the opposite. Really, when did anyone last play a hermit unless they wanted a massive challenge? Hermits suck. :P

You should really go and post this over on the ToME forums (http://forum.t-o-m-e.net/).

Or maybe try to get it into Furyband.

I play hermits everytime I do a sorcerer because if you run out of MP with a sorcerer you are so dead anyway you might as well be out of HP.

Furyband has outcasts.

Don't be fooled by the name. ;) Outcasts in Furyband can use magic and are quite good at it; they just have permanently bad charisma and luck.

(I happen to like playing them actually, they make the game a good deal faster. :D )

That is correct. Outcasts are not like the Paraiahs. That is an interesting idea though...
