i can almost read that, kinda feel ashamed.

You stupid noob! The Oracle Totally (p)owns you, scrub class! Totally overpowered, man!

that's assuming t0t5=tots which is shorthand for totals aka totally. Rest i took the liberty of converting to normal english since it's still abv/meme/stuff even after the netspeak.

I believe it reads "your scrub class," actually, but I couldn't make head nor tail of "scrub" until I spotted your comment.

Well, now I wonder, why everyone doesn't go into the Mage/Cleric college?

Because some of us like being ascended psionic gelatinous cube wizards.

Have only played the pathfinder witch, but i would say it's safe to say that someone called scowly face has the Evil eye hex...

Have I ranted about how much I despite mandatory character classes recently? Probably, though I don't remember if it was in the comments here. XD

For this style of RPG, they are necessary for balance... sort of. For a typical JRPG game, its just easier. Even less restrictive RPGs (or video games of other genres) can have issues with the player having too much control in shaping the character (and subsequently wrecking or failing intended scenarios).

For a tabletop RPG, I really do prefer the freedom to build the character I want to... but what if I want a more traditional dungeon crawl? A lot of "point build" systems still have something resembling character classes, but they are optional templates: if you really want to emulate Dungeons & Dragons-like gameplay, those templates just stop being optional or the players and GM agree to the risk and rewards of not following them.

Again, I prefaced this as a rant, so for those that prefer class systems, no worries: play the games you want to play how you want to play them. ;) Of course for this setting, class systems were a given. XD

Relating to some of the discussion... perhaps some settings should explore everyone being a Mage or a Cleric on top of their normal class?

Yeah, but then everybody who wants to be able to do anything compared to other, would be a Mage ( or is it Wizard? It has been long since I played DnD) on top of being Mage or Cleric/Cleric or, as Raxxon has reminded me, gelatinous cube Psion/gelatinous cube Psion (or any combination of these). Now just imagine double spell slots/psi points, and possibly a double caster level against saves. I guess you could forbid taking an OP class as your class on top of another OP class, though.

You can never rage to much about that. i, to prefer the classless systems. Class systems are funny and all, but being able to truly customize your char is nice. Some of my greatest chars could only be valid in a classless system, like the surgeon historian (complete with glasses and bowtie) with rage abilities and a double battleaxe. As much as i love Dnd, i have not yet found a class that have a good reason for reinventing a library system. (hmmm... maybe a barbarian librarian, on the perpetual hunt to find overdue books...but then i would have to skip his juridical studies and have him miss pottery class, not to mention his knowlage of Dewey decimal point system...)

Then again, i enjoy the munchkining involved in the making of making my lv 8 45ft reach bard/witch poledancers aswell...

Oracle is my favorite class. I've made far too many builds with them. My favorite was an Oracle who could defeat a summoned Godspawn (via Call the Godspawn) at level 10. Well 73% of the time if I did my math correctly.

I'll admit, Pathfinder has some fun classes. I look forward to trying it someday.
