You missed the fact that there was already one of these. Great minds think alike. it is a very good idea (one i wish i'd had) but there is already one.
I tried to find one where is it?
The problem with the other one is that it's in the wrong forum. It's in the 4e Multiclassing, Paragon Paths and Epic Destinies forum.

Um, I don't know if it counts because its race specific, but my Gargoylekin race thread has two Gargoylekin race specific paragon paths, the Stone Aviator and the Dread Sentry.
If you want to get real technical, there are 4 paragon paths within the tinker class as well as an epic destiny, and there is the beginnings of a very complex paragon path for the channeler.
(DELETE)
Honestly, I think this thread is fine. The other one should have been moved here, but since it hasn't, there is no reason not to have one for this forum. (even if you have missed most of my stuff. :D)

Well give me the links and I'll add them.

Since they are included in the class anybody who sees the class should see the PP, so no need to add them in my estimation
Added Trapsmith and Shadowcaster
A few things, First up, the link you used for my Lancer. That thread is no longer being updated. Yiou can find the new link in the same thread as the rest of my classes.

Second, for all of my classes, cvould you simply link to my thread, rather than the downloads?

Hi brother, this thread is cool, i hadn't come across the other compilation thread that has been mentioned, i usually only visit this forum and the campaign one.

Was the Confessor you posted in the 'works in progress' sblock mine? if so; thank you, but the link isn't working. I also have a psi leader - the Navigator; there is a link in my sig

Keep up the good work :D
Added Trapsmith and Shadowcaster

Aww. Thanks. :D
Homebrew classes: Guerrilla, Airbender, Earthbender, Firebender, and Waterbender. (PHASE 2 BEGINS! Tell us how we could make these classes better. The Shadow power source done right.
This is going to sound weird, but I think it would be helpful if you posted the creator of the class after the name of the class link.

I might not be tempted by the sound of a Water Mage class, but if I hear it is by BobSmith, well then, heck, I bet it is worth a read. For example.

"In a way, you are worse than Krusk"

"Can't say enough how much I agree with Krusk"

"Your advice is the worst"

Ok, I'll start working on your suggestions as soon as I can
1)Fixed ff6shadow's links
2)Added Navigator (Placed it under Psionic instead of Psychic, hope you don't mind)and Fixed Confessor Link
3)Added most (if not all) Epic destinies
(Placed it under Psionic instead of Psychic, hope you don't mind)

I don't mind at all, in fact you've pointed out a mistake of mine that i have been neglecting i ought to go through and change it all to Psionic.
Can you delete my death knight off the list?

My Shaper class is complete and playable (though it's likely going to get a future revision, as I've since changed my unified concept of the psionics power source mechanics). Don't know how you want to categorize that.

The other two classes (Egoist, Soulknife) are "done" through 10 (which isn't really done, is it? Consider them "playtest" versions :P ) can be found in the (semi-outdated) link in my signature.

The "Uncarnate" Epic Destiny is available in either of those documents (assume the Telepath one is "more complete," though they're exactly the same).

There are four Paragon Paths available in the Telepath document:
  • Living Nightmare
  • Mindbender
  • Psychic Leech
  • Warmind


There are two Paragon Paths available in the Shaper document:
  • Ectoplasmic Adept
  • Erbauer

Note: I just realized that they're out of alphabetical order on the document. Grrr. One more reason to revise it, I suppose.
Feedback Disclaimer
Yes, I am expressing my opinions (even complaints - le gasp!) about the current iteration of the play-test that we actually have in front of us. No, I'm not going to wait for you to tell me when it's okay to start expressing my concerns (unless you are WotC). (And no, my comments on this forum are not of the same tone or quality as my actual survey feedback.)
A Psion for Next (Playable Draft) A Barbarian for Next (Brainstorming Still)
1) Removed Dead Knight
2) Added Shaper, but not the paragon paths and Epic Destinies as they are contained within the class.
3) Added Demonologist
3) Added WIP Duelist
Added Brave Lancer
Added Dragon Rider
Added Werewolf and Deadknight
Added Trapsmith and Lich Paragon Path
Also take off my barbarian please.

No more barbarian
Thanks for putting this together and for including my project. Anything that gets more people to look at threads here and offer feedback is great.

One small suggestion: have you considered reducing the number of sblocks for the classes? There aren't terribly many classes right now, so I think readability trumps organization.

For example...

New Classes
New Classes
Controllers
Summoner (Arcane)
Time Mage (Arcane)
Lancer(Martial)
Trapsmith(Martial)
Shaper(Psionic)
Dread Necromancer(Shadow)
Shadowcaster(Shadow)
Tinker Class(New power Source)
Strikers

Dreadnought(Martial)
Ninja(Martial/Shadow)
Brave Lancer(Martial)
Duskblade(Martial/Arcane)
Battle Sorceror(Arcane)
Shapeshifter(Primal)
Monk(Ki)
Monk(Ki)
Channeler(New power source)

Leaders
Red Mage(Arcane)
Swashbuckler(Martial)
Telepath(Psionic)

Unclassified/Undefined Role

Historian(Martial)
Blue Mage(Arcane)
Demonologist(Arcane)
Gambler(Arcane)
Divine Agent(Divine)
New Shinobi(New power source)


This cuts down on clicks a bit, and I think it will be a long time until the lists get unwieldy. I realize it's a PITA to change though =\

truth/humor
Ed_Warlord, on what it takes to make a thread work: I think for it to be really constructive, everyone would have to be honest with each other, and with themselves.

 

iserith: The game doesn't profess to be "just like our world." What it is just like is the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Any semblance to reality is purely coincidental.

 

Areleth: How does this help the problems we have with Fighters? Do you think that every time I thought I was playing D&D what I was actually doing was slamming my head in a car door and that if you just explain how to play without doing that then I'll finally enjoy the game?

 

TD: That's why they put me on the front of every book. This is the dungeon, and I am the dragon. A word of warning though: I'm totally not a level appropriate encounter.

Another consideration might be adding the name of the classes creator beside the class. Nothuge now,but when you start getting lots of classes with the same name it could be usful.

Well I chose this methods because if someone has a concept for a psionic controller he'll find it easier this way than having to click controlers and reading the parenthesis at the end of a class. Also color coding isn't good, it tires the eyes and colorblind people won't benefit from it.

Thanks for the suggestion though

Will start Working on it.

Finished with first part will continue tomorrow (or later).
I am officially categorizing Dragonriders as Martial controllers. Also, I really don't mean to nitpick, but Dragonrider is one word for the class.

Placed Dragonriders under Martial Controllers and fixed the name.
