Looks like Martial Power 2, which is due to be released on 2/16/10 will have the martial equivalent of divine domains. They are called combat styles and look pretty cool. Today's dndinsider excerpt demonstrates them a little. I think these are something several of characters might be interested in, such as Ravenblade, Mal, and Daggoth. Some of them give skill boosts along with enhancing at-will powers. Some allow encounter powers to also be used as melee basic attacks in addition. All looks good to me.

DNDinsider released an FR adventure for level 5 characters today. I think it's called Hidden Destinies or something. In case anyone is interested.

Please don't look at it. I am doing FR and would like all the FR stuff as options.

;) That's what I was thinking as well. As we IMed last night, I'm up for playing in FR since I love that world. Can't wait to kick some of Drizzt's butt!

Since this sort of let whatever cat was left out of the bag, Mike, can you delete Ari's FR attempt and set up a new forum? We might as well start gaging interest, and besides, having the forum up will force me to get off my butt and get to work on the campaign.

Oops. Sorry about that. I hadn't realized it was hush-hush.

It wasn't really. I am just not so ready, and don't want to start until we all have a chance to digest PHB3.

Speaking of new characters, are you going to open planning for Delve 6?

LOL! I was totally telling Jon last night that you'd want the battlemind before anyone else gets their hands on it. It looks only okay to me with the current build. Warden seems similar, yet better, especially a Wilden storm warden. I don't have a defender yet in a campaign so we'll see. I'm up for controller too though. Swarm druid looks intriguing. Then there's the as yet unrevealed three other PHB3 classes. One primal, two divine maybe.

Yeah, probably tonight.

Should probably look at delve 6... :)

So only 6 classes, not 8? That's too bad. What's a shardmind? Something from previous editions? I do recall reading something about runepriest online. Are they the ones that create glyphs and sigils to harm or impair enemies?

If that's the lot, then I'm still interested in controller or defender for FR. Psion has been turning out to be loads more fun than I'd anticipated.

6 classes, but also hybrid rules, which expands the options.

I found a pdf with the character sheets from DDXP, which had some of the new stuff on it. I'll post tonight.

And hey, I'm about to start a hybrid martial/martial pc. :)

Here's a link to the PDF's shown at DDXP.

http://critical-hits.com/2010/01/29/dd-xp-2010-dark-sun-characters/

No shardmind, and while I remember being excited to see the battlemind info, that was before the class was added to the Character Builder. The Dark Sun races do look really neat, though.

The sheets do show the new, less-powerful Winged Horde.

Thanks, yeah, looks like winged horde has been neutered. They should have at least left it burst and maybe taken away the enemies only. Curiously, the flavor text still mention's plural "foes'".

The "Class Acts: Warlord" that just came out on dndinsider has some pretty neat tactical powers for warlords. It's from Dungeon 384, so it won't hit charbuilder for a couple more months, but I can see how some of these might be great for Mal.

PHB3 excerpt today on dndinsider mentions some upcoming feats. Here's a really cool one for Mal.

Polearm Flanker
Benefit: When you make a melee attack with a polearm against a target that is not adjacent to you, choose an unoccupied square that is adjacent to both you and the target. You are considered to occupy that square for the purpose of determining if you flank the target for the attack.

I saw that feat list. Looks very promising. I'm pretty sure the excerpt is free, and not part of the DDI sub, too, if anyone wants to see it themselves.

A new errata document is available on dndinsider. I'm posting some of the new changes that might affect current PC's.

http://www.wizards.com/DnD/Article.aspx?x=dnd/updates

Looks like Rightious Brand (level 1, at-will clerif power) has been weakened a little. +3 to attacks granted instead of STR mod.

New orb of imposition text as follows, with key change underlined:

"You can designate one creature you have cast awizard spell upon that has an effect that lasts until the subject succeeds on a saving throw. That creature
takes a penalty to its next saving throw against that effect equal to your Wisdom modifier."

Hellfire Blood:
Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls when you use a power that has the fire or the fear keyword.
(the word feat was deleted, I think this change is already in charbuilder but not sure)
