First on the list is Occupations, Mainly because I see these as being one of the easier things to balance mechanically, also because this might help with the divination system I'm working on (See Muro, all's well :p)  Anyway, hiya bina.

LISTS!!!

Skill list

Academic Skills

Lore - You're educated. You know legends, history, folktales, the great myths of the major religions.  You've studied it all.  Given that the people of most fantasy settings don't differentiate between fact and fiction, you may have trouble actually applying this knowledge, but gosh darn it, you know stuff.

Student of (___) - You've studied some particular subject much more than your average person, be it history, numerology, mathematics, or the Wines of the Southern Valley.

Decipher Script - You can decipher writing in an unfamiliar language or a message written in an incomplete or archaic form.  It helps if you have at least a passing familiarity with either the language the text was written in, or at least something related to it.

Concentration - You can remain focused on the task at hand despite being distracted by such things as uncomfortable chairs, inclement weather, or being stabbed.

Research - Given access to some large body of knowledge, a library or the insides of an ancient vampire's mind for example, you can scour it for the information you're searching for.

Speaker of (____) - These are the languages you know, from such things as Common to Orcish Hunting Calls, if someone uses it to communicate with you can learn it.  (I'm thinking of making it a feat for native level proficiency, otherwise you need to roll to see if you're understood or accidentally insult someone, maybe?)

Heal - You know how to keep people from dying.  Used to provide care when you have time that people aren't actively trying to kill you, otherwise see combat medicine.

Agricultural Skills

Handle Animal - You know how to deal with animals, whether it's teaching them a new trick or helping a mare foal, you can handle it.

Herbalism - You know what plants are good for a particular task, whether that task is eating, helping to heal a wound, or poisoning your rival.  You also know how to properly prepare said plants to perform that task better, be it seeping the willow bark in warm water or making a highly condensed nicotine solution out of tobacco leaves.

Athletic Skills

Run - You know how to effectively run, whether it's a 100m dash or running a full marathon.  This skill also allows you to cover more land on foot than an untrained person would be able to.

Climb - You can effectively travel vertically over surfaces, whether it's up a sheer rock wall or a rope.

Balance - You can avoid falling over, especially when it's important, like walking across a bottomless chasm on nothing more than a 40' long 2x4 with a crosswind.

Jump - You can jump.  I really don't know what else I can say about this, it seems like a fairly obvious skill.

Swim - Whether it's diving to the bottom of a river to retrieve the One Ring, or swimming to Alcatraz during a storm, if it happens in the water this is most likely the skill you'll use.

Tumble - Whether you're rolling between the Ogre's legs to avoid being smashed by that tree trunk he's swinging, or using Parkour to turn that 30' drop into forward momentum, this is what you'll use.

Criminal Skills

Disable Device - You can open locks and disable traps, no place is safe from your thieving fingers.

Hide - You can make yourself unseen, whether you're hiding in the shadows while guards are wandering around yelling "Taffer" or in a Gilly suit in the brush.

Move Silently - You can walk quietly, whether you are stalking your prey like a shadow or trying to sneak up on someone while wearing one of those Jester suits with all the bells on it.

Forgery - You can create forgeries, whether it's a copy of the Mona Lisa to sell to someone, or making up documents to say that you were on the King's business and should be immediately released.

Disguise - You know how to make yourself appear to be someone else, a true master could convince his own mother that she was talking to a Thai hooker.

Escape Artist - You can get out of restraints, whether you're popping your shoulder out of its socket to

Sleight of Hand - Hiding things on your person, that nifty thing where you make a business card appear from no where, and picking pockets are all under this skill.

Gamble - Whether you're throwing bones on the street corner or playing high stakes poker this is your skill.

Interpersonal Skills

Bluff - You're a liar and a d**n good one at that, you could convince your own sweet mother that she was a man, it's also used for feinting in combat.

Perform (___) - Whether it's playing a lute or freestyle interpretive dance, you can entertain people and generally get them to give you praise, applause, or money.

Sense Motive - You can tell when someone trying something fishy.

Gather Information - You can get information out of people, even when they don't really know that they have it, whether it's finding out where a fence is or getting a description of a suspect out of a witness, you which questions to ask to get the most information out of someone.

Intimidate - You can convince people that you are not to be triffled with, it doesn't really matter why they think that, be it fear of a beating, political backlash, or the belief that you'll turn them into a newt.

Diplomacy - You know how to sweet talk people into seeing things your way,.

Graces - This is your knowledge of how to be a good guest, or host, and covers a wide range of things every courtier must know, such things as never presenting your bare hands to a Nyrthian to when or when not to belch.  Of course, social graces are a two-way street, and you can be at your best trying to impress that Nyrthian diplomat, but because he's such a boor, he picks up on all the little things that you got wrong, like the fact that you crossed your left foot over your right as you were sitting at the dinner table and decides to recommend to his Emperor that they wipe your pathetic nation off the map. Cheers.

Mercantile Skills

Appraise - Using your knowledge of the subject at hand, you can accurately value an object upon examining it, or determine if it's a forgery.

Craft (____) - Whether it's blacksmithing or underwater basket weaving, this is the skill used for making things.

Haggle - You are an expert at getting a bargain, whether it's through brow-beating, indignation, cajoling, or pretending that you have a highly communicable disease, you can get the best prices when you buy and sell goods.

Military Skills

Tactics - You can accurately size up a location and determine such things as choke points, high ground, potential ambush sites, or what direction the horde of Orcish Berserkers are most likely to come from.

Combat Medicine - Where the healing skill seeks to cause the body to heal quicker, combat medicine just tries to get the wounded back onto their feet so they can continue fighting, even if it means that their chances of survival will drop drastically.

Paranormal Skills

Eerie - You are adept at feeling what active magic feels like.  It's hard to describe, it's like the electroreception that sharks and fishes have, except with magic.

Spellcraft - You are a studier of dark tomes of grim magic, you might not have figured out how to make stuff happen yet, but you will, and then they'll be sorry.

Perception Skills

Streetwise - You understand how crowds of people work, you know what to look for in a crowd to figure out if they're spoiling for a fight or terrified that someone is about to get shanked.

Spot - This skill covers how good you are at picking up subtle visual clues, like that little red dot that flashed on the edge of your monitor just now.  It looked an awful lot like a laser pointer, didn't it?

Listen - This skill covers how good you are at picking up subtle, or not so subtle, audible clues, how good you are at localizing what direction they came from, and identifying what they most likely were.

Search - Whether you're casing a manor for every little piece of loot you can find or trying to follow the tracks of a fleeing fugitive over a sheet of granite, this is the skill that covers it.

Traveling Skills

Survival - You know how to find shelter, food, water, and heat when stranded in the wilderness with just the clothes on you back.

Navigate - You know how to read a map, use a compass and a sextant, you can figure out which way is north merely by the stars, and on a cloudy night you know how to use the moss on trees to figure out what direction you're traveling in.

Use Ropes - You can tie knots, there's not a whole lot of things to say about this skill, other than it's actually a lot more complex than this description would have you believe.

Ride - You know how to stay mounted when traveling through rough terrain, how to ride a horse for long distances without breaking it, and potentially how to ride even more exotic mounts, like a dire shrew.

They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Determinator
With my dying breath I will end you!

Weapon Feats
« Reply #5 on: March 07, 2012, 02:33:06 PM »
First 3, the basics.  Unarmed will come later.

Quote
Brawler
First lesson: stick them with the pointy end.
You understand how to hurt, maim, and kill people.  Any weapon who's use is obvious (axes, clubs, crossbows, thrown rocks, broken bottle, table leg) and isn't just as likely to hurt the untrained user as his target (nunchucks).  Basically, if you expect a video like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpva_72qbMI to be on youtube, you can't use that weapon with this skill.
Benefit: You gain proficiency in plethora of actual and improvised weapons.


Quote
Weapon Training (___)
You've been trained in the use of a category of weapons, such as axes, bows, swords, monk weapons, or frozen fish.
Benefits: You gain proficiency in that category of weapons.  You also gain a +1 to Attack and Damage with that category of weapons.
Special: You may take this feat multiple times, each time choosing a different catagory of weapons.


Quote
This Is My Rifle
You've trained with a very specific weapon, for example your family's heirloom sword, passed down from father to son for eight generations, for so long that it is an extension of your being.
Benefits: You gain proficiency with that weapon and weapons similar to it.  +2 to Attack and Damage +1 to AC with this weapon.
Special: If you lose your weapon, or decide to replace it you must spend one month with your new weapon to gain the bonuses provided by this feat back, the new weapon must be similar to the one you replaced.  You can only use this feat on one weapon at a time.  You can take this feat multiple times, each time choosing a different weapon.

On endurance balancing, change physical classes to getting 2dX instead of 1dY, add requirements for HD.
Remember what my TI said, "we're all about killing people and breaking their shayt."
skill points tied more closely to int, allowing more skill points.  there are 30+ skills

Bows/Crossbows
Clubs/Maces/Picks/Hammers
Flails/Chains
Heavy Blades
Light Blades
Slings/Thrown Weapons
Spears/Lances/Polearms
Unarmed/Claws


Quote
Weapon Training (Bows & Crossbows) AKA "Archer"
You've been trained in the use of a category of weapons, such as axes, bows, swords, monk weapons, or frozen fish.
Benefits: You gain proficiency in that category of weapons.  You also gain a +1 to Attack and Damage with that category of weapons.
Special: You may take this feat multiple times, each time choosing a different catagory of weapons.

Quote
Hawkeye (Archer)
Prerequisites: Spot 4, Archer
Benefits: For every 4 ranks you have in the Spot skill you gain +1 to attack with bows & crossbows and the range increment for any bow or crossbow he uses increases by 5 feet.

Quote
Melee Archer (Archer)
Prerequisites: Archer
Benefits: You gain a +1 to attack and damage when shooting within 30', additionally you do not provoke attacks of opportunity when shooting from within melee, nor do you take a -4 to attack when attempting to shoot into a melee.

Quote
Sniper (Archer)
Prerequisites: Hawkeye
Benefits: When you use a bow or crossbow its range increment is increased by 1/2 (it is now x1.5 what it was before).  Additionally your ranged attacks ignore the AC bonus granted to targets by anything less than total cover; likewise, ignore the miss chance granted by anything less than total concealment.  Finally, if you shoot at a target engaged in a grapple, you automatically hit the target you were aiming at.
Special: The range bonus is applied after the bonuses granted by Hawkeye.

Quote
Manyshot (Archer)
Prerequisites: Archer, BaB +6
Benefits: As a standard action, you may fire two arrows at a single opponent within 30 feet. Both arrows use the same attack roll (with a -4 penalty) to determine success and deal damage normally (but see Special).
For every five points of base attack bonus you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack bonus of +16. However, each arrow after the second adds a cumulative -2 penalty on the attack roll (for a total penalty of -6 for three arrows and -8 for four).
Special: All these arrows are treated as one attack for purposes of damage reduction.
Regardless of the number of arrows you fire, you apply precision-based damage only once. If you score a critical hit, only the first arrow fired deals critical damage; all others deal regular damage.
(Yes, the only difference between this and the SRD Manyshot are the prereqs and how they're treated by DR)

Quote
Darken the Sky (Archer)
Prerequisites: Archer
Benefits: As a full round action you can make a single attack at your highest BaB against any number of targets in a 15 foot radius, the center point of which must be within your first range increment.  You make seperate attack and damage rolls for each target in this area.

Quote
Pinning Shot (Archer)
Prerequisites: Archer, BaB +3
Benefits: When using a bow or crossbow with a Str bonus of +2 or higher, as a standard action you may make an attack against any target within range of your bow, who takes damage as normal and is immobilized and flat footed for a number of rounds equal to the Str bonus of your weapon minus one.

Quote
Through Shot (Archer)
Prerequisites: Pinning Shot
Benefits: When using a bow or crossbow with a Str bonus of +6 or higher and you threaten a critical against a target, the projectile you fired pierces the target and continues in a line, potentially striking a target behind them.  You must be able to trace a line starting at his space and passing through both targets to make this additional attack. This secondary attack is made at -4 in addition to any other penalties for added range.  If this attack is also a critical hit, the projectile can continue to hit another target, but the penalties stack.

Bows, Crossbows and Damage bonuses

While Dex is the attribute in charge of determining your to-hit bonus when using projectile weapons, it is strength that determines how much extra damage one can deal with bows.  When making a new bow the bowyer decides what the pull on the bow will be, in modern days you generally don't see much more than 65-70 lbs, however the medieval British longbow had pulls of up to 160-180 lbs.  Mechanically this is represented by having a Str bonus for bows which is the maximum amount of Str damage dealt by a that bow.  For example, Thug the Ogrish Archer has a strength of 24, for a Str bonus of +7, but the bow he's using only has a Str bonus of +5, meaning he can only apply 5 points of his Str bonus to damage.  Now if Meh his halfling sidekick with a strenght of 8 picked up that bow and tried to shoot it, he'd be dealing with a draw weight that is well out of his range and would take a penalty to attack and damage equal to the difference between his Str bonus (-1) and the bow's (+5) for a total of -6 to attack and damage.

Crossbows are an entirely different story, your strength bonus doesn't matter, instead your crossbow has its own strength bonus that's applied to all attacks.  Hand crossbows generally have a strength bonus of +0, light crossbows get +2 and heavy crossbows get +6.  (This last bonus may seem absurd, but it is balanced out by the fact that it takes a full round to reload a heavy crossbow.)

From Muro: Chamberpot-Firing feat and Double Plus Quick Shooting feat.
From Mourn: Banking shot

Grab Bag time

AoO: Attack of Opportunity
BaB: Base Attack Bonus

Quote
Weapon Training (Unarmed and Claws) AKA "Unarmed"
You've been trained in the use of a category of weapons, such as axes, bows, swords, monk weapons, or frozen fish.
Benefits: You gain proficiency in that category of weapons.  You also gain a +1 to Attack and Damage with that category of weapons.

Your unarmed attacks are treated as armed attacks and deal lethal or nonlethal damage (your choice).  The amount of damage done by your attacks is determined by the number of unarmed feats you have taken.
Special: You may take this feat multiple times, each time choosing a different catagory of weapons.

Quote
For Medium sized creatures
For evey size category smaller than Medium, the creature is treated as having 2 less feats, while for every size category larger than Medium the creature is treated as having 2 more feats.
# of feats | Damage
(-4) and less   1
(-3) - (-2)      1d2
(-1) - 0      1d4
1 - 2      1d6
3 - 4      1d8
5 - 6      1d10
7 - 8      2d6
9 - 10      2d8
11 - 12      2d10
13 - 14      3d6
15 - 16      3d8
17 - 18      3d10

Examples: Z'temorum the Gnomish monk has 7 unarmed combat feats, however due to being Small he is treated as having 5 for determining how much damage he does, 1d10 in this case.  Nmyrg the Titan of hand to hand combat is Huge, thus treated as having 4 more than the 12 unarmed combat feats he has, thus dealing 3d8 damage. (The fact that he has four arms and a strength bonus of +21 is just an added bonus for him.)

Quote
Opportunistic Disarm (unarmed)
Prerequisites: Unarmed, (Improved Disarm)
Benefits: When an enemy attacks you and misses you can expend one of your attacks of opportunity to immediately attempt to disarm them.  If they'd previously scored a hit on you this disarm attempt is made a -4.

Quote
Haymaker (unarmed)
Prerequisites: Unarmed, BaB +3, Concentration 4
Benefits: As a full round action you may make a single unarmed melee attack that deals XdY damage, where X is your Str modifier and Y is based off of your BaB.  If this attack is being made against an inatimate object, the damage is doubled.  This attack provokes an attack of opportunity, that if it hits disrupts the attempt unless if the attacks succeeds at a concentration check equal to the damage dealt by the AoO.

Quote
Haymaker table
BaB      Dice
+3 - +6      d6
+7 - +10   d8
+11 - +14   d10
+15 - +18   d12
+19 and up   d20

Example: Nmyrg the Titan has a BaB of +20 and has a +21 Str bonus, so if he uses this attack against Z'temorum the Gnomish monk he would deal 21d20 damage, however Z'temorum would be able to make an attack of opportunity to try and interrupt the attack (Unlikely seeing as he's only likely to deal 12 points of damage, but Nmyrg could always roll a critical failure.)

Quote
Deflecting Shot (Archer)
Prerequisites: Archer, (Quick Reflexes or some such), BaB +5
Benefits: For every five points of BaB you have you can deflect a projectile by up to 45 degrees off of some hard surface.  This can be used to shoot around corners by bouncing the arrow off a wall, or through a thick melee by bouncing the arrow off the metal armor of one of the combatants.  For every 9 degrees the shot is deflected you take a -1 to the attack (45 degrees is -5, 90 is -10, 180 is -20)  This shot can also be used to shot yourself in the face if you want to commit suicide in a particularly retarded way.

Quote
Tank (Heavy Armor)
Prerequisites: Heavy Armor Proficiency
Benefits: When you wear heavy armor you're treated as having DR 1/-- with additional points of DR gained at every 5 points of BaB. (+5 BaB gives DR 2/-- +15 BaB grants DR 4/--)

Quote
Deathwish (Endurance)
Prerequisites: Con 15, Determinator
Benefits: You gain bonuses to attack and damage based on how close you are to dying.  When you're between 75% and 50% health you gain +1 to attack and damage, when you're between 50% and 25% health you gain +3 to attack and damage, when you're between 25% and 0% health you gain +6 to attack and damage, and when you're below 0 HP you gain a +10 to attacks and damage.

Quote
FORE!!! (2 Hander)
Prerequisites: (2 Hander), Str 16
Benefits: As a standard action you may attack an enemy dealing normal damage, if the attack hits you may make a strength check to throw the enemy as if they were one size catagory smaller.  If this check succeeds you successfully propel them 10 feet for every size catagory difference between you and them (minimum 10') in any direction and they must make a reflex save VS damage dealt or land prone.

Quote
Blindside (dodge/parkour/whatever I end up calling that tree)
Prerequisites:
Benefits: If you make an attack against an enemy that neither threatened you or was threatened by you at the beginning of this turn, you gain half of your BaB to attack and damage.  This bonus also applies to AoO's so long as the previous conditions are met.
