If I ever get a chance to run with you, I would love to be an Assassin. The upside is the token would never leave your sight :P

you may have missed the other post on this subject:
when you go to the desk to get the voucher, the person who will use it must be there to claim the voucher (they put the persons name AND the number of the rod on the voucher). then when the person wants to use the voucher, their name on badge and voucher must match and they must be equipping the rod with the corresponding number as well.

so, it ends up being a lot of work to sell the sub-class only, which is intentional to discourage doing it. I will have enough trouble just getting my wife to be able to use one this year (we have a breastfeeding baby, so her time at gencon is very limited...sorry druegar, claiming her voucher is going to have to wait until the 30 minutes before her run).
this is not a signature.

30 minutes before a run is absolutely fine! What I was trying to stave off was people waiting until after their run starts to try get a voucher.

Some people still will until they know what class they can play
I can really see that happening. At least there are only 100 or so rods.

They don't have to, though.

You can pick up your Voucher any time... bring it with you to Coaching, find out what class you can play, and then NOT use the certificate. Just put it back in your pocket and bring it to the next run. Or the next.

I haven't seen anything which says you must claim your certificate immediately prior to the run which you are going to use it on.

...

The only reason I might see for someone not wanting to pick up their certificate early is if they have a trusted friend who might play the prestige class, if they don't play it themselves. Then you might get a situation where Adam and Betty show up to Coaching, Adam discovers that Bard is already taken, so he can't play Troubadour. Betty's favorite class is still available tho. He gives Betty the Rod, and she goes to get the certificate, so she can play Assassin.

That's gonna be very rare, tho. Most Rod owners are long-time players, they coordinate their groups ahead of time, they will have class-selection privs before other players, they know to show up to Coaching early, and they have excellent token load-outs for their favorite classes. Most pick-up groups lucky enough to have a fully purpled rod-holder join them would be smart enough to let them play their primary class, for the best of the group.

Quirky, but not overpowered. I wholeheartedly approve. I do have a couple questions:
Does the Summoner's Polymorph damage boost apply to a summoned animal?

Is Zephyr Step supposed to say "Free Action?" I think Movement might be move appropriate, if I'm reading it correctly.

Also, just out of curiosity, will there be 4th level cards?

The Dwarf Fighter's Aura of Devotion doesn't count as a "Healing Spell" that would gain the Eldritch +10 bonus, right?

As far as I read it, the +5 applies when the *Druid* is polymorphed, not when he summons an animal to fight for him (which isn't really a polymorph, it's just using a polymorph token)

Is Zephyr Step supposed to say "Free Action?" I think Movement might be move appropriate, if I'm reading it correctly.


Agreed, and others have said the same thing. But apparently the "Free Action" wording remained after the initial round of changes.

Also, just out of curiosity, will there be 4th level cards?


They aren't needed, since part of the Prestige perk is the ability to play as 5th level.

Its an ability just like the Paladin's laying on hands, if I understand it correctly.

Quoted for truth!!

There is nothing that says you must claim your certificate immediately prior to the run which you are going to use it on.

If someone said that, let me know and I will revoke that person's cookies!

No
Damage will be determined solely by the token's damage wheel. This will be explained on the back of the card.

Seras wrote: Is Zephyr Step supposed to say "Free Action?"

Yes
Until a the name conflict of Free Action (ability to move freely) vs. Free Action (ability to perform an action quickly) is resolved, the same nomenclature will be used.
Exactly which version it means will be explained on the back of the card.

Seras wrote: Also, just out of curiosity, will there be 4th level cards?

No
All sub-classes are 5th-lvel. There is no such thing as a 4th-level sub-class.

Kirk Bauer wrote: The Dwarf Fighter's Aura of Devotion doesn't count as a "Healing Spell" that would gain the Eldritch +10 bonus, right?

It does not count as a spell because it's not a spell, it's a special power. If you're ever unsure whether something is a spell or a special power, look at the header of the section it's listed under on the character card.

As an addendum to my first response to your question . You may Assassinate with a ranged weapon if both of the following conditions are met:
  1. You're wearing Lenses of Vital Insight
  2. The ranged weapon has a natural "6" on it
This will be stated on the back of the card.
