Greater Gods are the gods of gods, creators and annihilators of entire pantheons. A God can never advance to become a Greater God unless he manages to defeat and kill the Greater God of his own pantheon (or is promoted by his Greater God). This restriction does not apply for those who have advanced into the Godhood classes through the Plane of Trials. A Greater God keeps the weakness he had as a God, and it is an almost impossible task to figure out what this weakness is and exploit it without being defeated first. There is only one Greater God in any Pantheon, and he knows the weaknesses of all the Gods below him.

A Greater God can create his own Pantheon at level 1. At this point, he can promote 4 Gods, 16 Demigods and 80 Paragon beings. He can double this number every Greater God level if he so chooses.


As a Greater God grows stronger, he can create more and more until he reaches the point where he can create his own planets and planes of existence. At this point, he must either do so and emigrate his Pantheon there or wage war upon any Greater Gods currently sharing his current plane of existence.

Fighting a Greater God:
Surviving a Greater God encounter grants 50k xp pr. demigod level + 500k xp pr. God level + 5 mill xp. pr Greater God lvl.
Defeating a Greater God grants 1k xp pr. HD + 100k xp pr. Demigod lvl + 1 mill xp pr. God lvl + 10 mill xp pr. Greater God lvl + 1 xp pr. hp.
Killing a Greater God grants 1 mill xp pr. Demigod lvl + 10 mill xp pr. God lvl + 100 mill xp pr. Greater God lvl.
This xp is only granted if you face a fully fleshed Greater God fighting at full strength with an intention to kill.

A Greater God advances through 20 levels, at which point he is absorbed into the cosmos and becomes part of all things. Once you become a Greater God, you stop gaining xp by conventional means. Instead, you get 1% xp every year for as long as you have followers. In, addition, you can choose powers which increase your xp gain.

Every level as Greater God grants:
+10 hit/AC/dmg (physical attacks)
+1 on all ability scores
+10 Caster levels
+10 DR/all
+10 SR/all
+50% MR
+1000 hp (no con bonus)

In addition, each level offers its own abilities as well as the chance to chose a Greater God power:

For every defender that dies, 2 of your followers will die. If they manage to kill off all defenders, they will establish a new kingdom there in your name (50% of the crusading followers will settle down while the rest go home). Your religion will be the official religion, and 25% of the surviving population will convert (50% of the population in a country will be part of the defending army when any followers of a Greater God come crusading).

If your HP/AC/etc. is tied to your follower count, you will take damage/effects from loss of followers.
151: You gain +1% XP every year for as long as you have followers. This ability can be chosen several times.

The Shaolin monks used to have a presence in both Vest and Den Gylne Keiser Rike, but all the monasteries in Vest were burned to the ground a few years ago. The monks had been a thorn in the side for the emperor for quite some time, but none of his attempts to link them to the rebels were fruitful. That is, until an upstart wizard became the leader of one of the magic schools in the empire in return for ratting out a Shaolin monastery for being traitors against the emperor. A military campaign was launched against the monks in the name of said wizard, and hundreds were killed. Today, that wizard is known as Mokferuso, the most powerful Dragon Mage in the history of time, and a supposed epitome of Goodness. If people only knew….

Shaolin Monks live in secluded monasteries most of the time, unless they are on some kind of mission on behalf of their order. Adventuring for the sake of adventuring is frowned upon, and seldomly accepted.
If you ever want to leave your monastery to adventure on your own, you need to defeat your masters in the courtyard on your way to the gate – or die.
The only sphere Shaolin Monks originally have access to it Healing, but all those spells are maximized.

The Shaolin Monks are renown for their wisdom and people often seek them out for guidance. This results in a +5 bonus on all encounter checks with other people.
Due to their extensive combat training, Shaolin Monks can specialize in any exotic weapon, and have hit rating advancement as fighters.

The Martial Artists of Vest all belong to one of eight different styles, each paying tribute to the characteristics of an animal. Being a martial artist also means protecting your village against dangers and participating in tournaments which in turn might serve to raise your personal social standing in the Vest society.

Fighter Class

STR 18

Your first proficiency slot on your totem style is free.
You learn how to use the Iron Bar, a devastating weapon.

You cannot advance beyond level 3 until you have learned the special attack of your style, something which requires you to solve a task given to you from your master. A lot of martial artist leave the class in pursuit of another fighter class after giving up their quest. A typical quest involves making your way to a temple in the jungle where a real live animal of your style will attack you, dealing only subdual damage. This animal can only be damaged by your style’s special attack and will only receive subdual damage from it. Every round the animal attacks you (using the special attack of your style, so add +1 hit/dmg pr HD of the animal), you get a DC 35 WIS check to discover the secret of the attack. Once you have discovered it, you must succeed at DC 35 INT check to be able to use it against the animal. You get one check every round you try. Usually, this leaves people beat up and hurt for days and weeks until they finally succeed. Which is why most people give up entirely. Every time you are knocked unconcious, the animal will disappear and not reappear until the next day.

Lvl    Abilities

3    Style Special Attack
5    Iron Bar Specialization
10    Iron Bar Expert
12    Improved Special Attack
15    Iron Bar Master
20    Iron Bar Artist

Iron Bar Proficiency: Able to wield and use the Iron Bar, a two-handed iron pole weighing 50 kg. Although anyone with at least 18 STR is able to pick it up and strike someone with it for 1d10 dmg, only martial artists learn the maneuvers which turns it into a deadly weapon on the battlefield. Your movement is reduced by 6 while carrying an Iron Bar. Attacking with it is a full-round action.
Totem Style: You start your journey as a martial artist and get your first proficiency slot in the style you are studying. There are 8 styles, and each is stronger than one while weaker than another. Tiger beats Mantis, which beats Snake, which beats Leopard, which beats Bear, which beats Monkey, which beats Eagle, which beats Crane, which beats Tiger. Your totem style is cumulative with Martial Arts WP, and grants either +3 hit, dmg or AC pr. slot you designate to it. Once you choose hit, dmg or AC, you must stick to that for all your new slots, too.
Style Special Attack: This is your style’s trademark, and you cannot learn it without completing a quest given from your master. This attack is a standard action and deals lethal damage instead of subdual. In addition, you get +1 hit/dmg pr. lvl performing this attack. If you strike the style you prey upon, your hit/dmg bonus is doubled. If you strike the style which preys on you, you get no bonus. Trying to counter such a strike is harder than countering other kinds of attacks, so the DC is increased by 1 pr. lvl. The style you prey upon has it’s DC increased by another +1 pr. lvl, and the style which preys on you parries it like normal attakcs (DC = your hit + 12).
Iron Bar Specialization: The Iron Bar now deals 2d10 dmg. Attacking with it is a Standard Action.
Iron Bar Expert: The Iron Bar deals 3d10 dmg, and the attack is a Whirwind attack. Movement penalty reduced to 3.
Improved Special Attack: You special attack now also get hit/dmg bonus from DEX.
Iron Bar Master: The Iron Bar deals 4d10 dmg and you get an AoO on everyone who enters a square you threaten.
Iron Bar Artist: The Iron Bar deals 5d10. No movement penalty. You can now also perform a movement action in addition to the standard action (but not perform 2 movement action). During the movement action, you will automatically attack everyone within reach (even friendlies).

Aikido Masters have taken a much deeper dive into the art of Aikido than those with but a few dedicated slots in the proficiency. This has allowed them to unlock its offensive and damaging capabilities. But luckily, they tend to keep to themselves to avoid drawing too much attention to themselves or their art. And when cornered, most prefer to simply avoid their opponent’s blows instead of turning him into mince meat.

Sumo wrestlers originate from the empire of Vest, where they enjoy a life of fame and luxury. But their life is not just all show and games – they can also be deadly opponents if they want.

Regardless of how weak a sumo wrestler is before he begins his career, his strength will soon rise to astronomical heights as he levels up. But his dexterity will sadly suffer, as will his weight and movement rating.

Fighter class

CHA 15

Can only learn bludgeoning melee weapons and bows (must be strength bows or they will break)
Cannot wear any armor unless it has been designed specifically for the sumo wrestler. Once he levels up, the armor must either be modified or it won’t fit anymore.

One of the highest ranking social classes of the Vest society.
Impervious to subdual damage.
Treated as a large creature with 4 legs during Overbearing.
A sumo wretler is considered to be armed at all times and all his attacks deal lethal damage (of course, they can choose to deal subdual damage during tournaments, shows and contests – unless they have a reason not to).

Sumo Wrestling: The only unarmed combat style a sumo wrestler can learn, is sumo wrestling. but what a great fighting style it is! Sumo wrestling deals 1d4 lethal bludgeoning damage, and every slot you gain gives you +1 attack/hit/dmg with your hands. Whether you push, punch, pound, swing or hammer away with those fists of yours, you do a truckload of damage! sumo wrestlers are the only ones who can learn this fighting style, and it is the only known fighting style which Jiu Jutsu cannot be used to counter.

Sumo Lifestyle: +10 kg bodyweight pr. lvl, -1 movement pr. 30 kg gained. +1 society point pr. lvl. If you ever leave the sumo wrestler class, your lifestlye sticks with you, causing you to gain more weight while losing more movement. And alas, your hard gained STR will recede by 1 point EVERY level until it is back at where it started before you became a sumo wrestler. Your DEX, however, will not increase.

Sumo Charge: If you charge someone during the first round of combat, you can take 2 movement actions, followed by a full round action of Sumo Wrestling attacks.

Sumo Slam: You can sacrifice all your attacks but 1 in order to make a single Sumo Slam attack as a standard action (if you are able to perform more than 1 standard action in a round, you can still only do one Slam every round). The Sumo Slam attack deals Crushing/Structural damage, and you gain +1 hit pr. attack you have sacrificed as well as all the damage the other attacks would have caused. This means that a sumo wrestler who has 10 attacks who all do 1d4+20 (just an example) dmg, can sacrifice 9 of his attacks to perform a single crushing slam which has a +9 bonus to hit and a 9d4+180 bonus to dmg.

Talona is the only known evil demi-god who follows the Eight Immortals. Therefore, even though his followers are often assumed to be demon worshippers, they are not. But they would probably be persecuted a lot more, was it not for the fact that The Black Fangs of Talona have specialized in giving advice to rulers and important persons, as well as keeping them alive by checking their food and drink for poison.

A Marksman is considered to be proficient in all ranged weapons, including throwing axes, ballista, catapults, cannons, etc. The first ability a marksman learns is Marksmanship, and all later abilities are only useable in concert with the Marksmanship ability.

Marksmanship (Ex): Full round action. Regardless of how many attacks the marksman usually has, he only gets 1 attack/arrow every round when using Marksmanship (no effects/bonuses/abilities/etc. can circumvent this). At level 11, he gets a 2nd attack, and a 3rd at level 21, 4th at lvl 31 etc. Using the Marksmanship ability adds +1 dmg pr. level to the shot, and he will never miss his target (which means that he will always hit what he aims for – as long as he can see it, but invisible opponents must be seen and ethereal creatures still have a 50% chance of being missed if the weapon isn’t Ghost touch, etc). Called shots for additional damage is not allowed when using Marksmanship. The Marksman still rolls the die to see if he scores a critical hit, and a natural 1 is still a miss.

From level 20, the Epic Sharpshooter’s hit rating with his personal weapon increases by 2 every level instead of 1, and his regular hit rating increases by 1 every level. In addition, every third level (lvl 23, 26, etc.), the Epic Sharpshooter gets to choose one ability from the following list (abilities marked with * can be chosen several times):

1: *+1 Initiative, +1 hit rating on ranged attacks and +1 arrow on One man firing squad
2: One man firing Squad can be performed every round, and there is no cooldown period.
3: If an Epic Sharpshooter is flanking his target, his backstab bonus is applied to the first shot of every round.
4: The hit penalty on Sniper Shot is removed, and WIS scores above 18 will help increase the chance to hit further (as pr. 3.5 Ed rules). No need to observe the target in advance, and one shot can be fired every round as a full round action. The minimum distance a Sniper Shot can be fired from is 30 feet.
5: *Personal weapon damage is even one die category higher. Die categories are as follows: 1d4, 1d6, 1d8, 1d10, 1d12, 2d8, 1d20, 2d12, 3d10, 4d10, 5d10, etc.
6: Sniper Shot will not automatically reveal the location of the Epic Sharpshooter. Instead, he needs a new MS/HS roll for every shot taken, with a -50% penalty pr. shot. Hide in Plain Sight cannot be used in the same round as Sniper Shot.
7: WIS bonus to hit rating is applied to all ranged attacks, and the WIS bonus to Sniper shot is doubled.
8: *+100% range and arrow damage on Sniper Shot.
9: Able to use any melee weapon, not just small ones.
10: INT bonus to hit rating.

On any material plane there can only be one Legendary Swordsmith with a single apprentice. The road to becoming one is a long trip, and the apprentice can never outlevel the master as long as the master lives. Due to a history of backstabbing apprentices, most swordsmiths have learned not to accept any assistants at all, with the result that the secrets of the swords are easily lost. If no Legendary Swordsmith exists in your world, those who seek to become one must succeed a Legendary Swordsmith check DC 20+current level in order to figure out the secrets which unlock the new abilities. If at any point, you fail the check, you can no longer advance as a Legendary Swordsmith. At that point it might be a good idea to hire an apprentice, since those with a master don’t need a check to advance until they reach a level which their master hasn’t attained yet. Strangely enough, most masters seem to suffer unfortunate accidents at this point for some reason.

Signature Sword:
The legendary swordsmith’s signature sword is one of 9 swords the swordsmith creates. Every 5th level, the swordsmith is able to create a new sword with the characteristics of all previous levels(Crafting a new sword takes 28 consecutive days).
In addition to these traits, all of his signature weapons also share the following abilities:
1-handed swords have a base damage of 1d12/1d20. 2-handed swords have a base damage of 2d10/3d10.
+1 hit/dmg pr odd lvl of swordsmith at the time of creation (however, for the creator it functions as +1 pr. every lvl, and its bonuses continue to grow as the swordsmith level up)
Although these swords are never magical and cannot be enchanted in any way, they still damage those who are impervious to physical damage (ie. they damage everyone regardlessly).
What kind of sword you decide to create is entirely up to yourself. But if your first sword is one type of sword, all following swords must be of the same type. Also, whenever a Legendary Swordsmith creates a new sword (for instance a Sixth Sword), any previous Sixth Sword from the same material plane will disappear forever. The swords made by Legendary Swordsmiths are not affected by the detection abilities of even Greater Gods.
Note: A Tenth Sword is rumored to exist somewhere in the multiverse. It might be just a rumor, but then agains – it might not.
