[RPG] Guidelines for creating homebrew classes (base/PrCs)


Is there any (official or not) guidebook to the creation of classes, both prestige and base, that does not simply state what you must pick for a class (BaB, saves, concept, profficiences), but actually helps in balancing the class, even though I find balance a really shady aspect of 3.5.

Best Answer

The 3.5 DMG lists Modifying Character Classes and Creating New classes on page 174 and 175 respectively (PDF Doc).

There is also the Class Construction Engine from SHADOWCRAFT STUDIOS.

You can find more about Prestige Classes from Designing Prestige Classes - RPG.Net, and Designing Prestige Classes Part II - RPG.Net or Creating Balanced Prestige Classes - Guy Fullerton.
