Re: Slavic Codex - Witch ?

No problem! As soon as I did reply, this forum went offline, so I couldn't look back for your own...I hope it clarified details a bit. The Halifuna can suffice too as the early Eastern Germans and Slavs lived side-by-side and their traditions were blurred. The Goths had said that the Huns were spawn...

Re: Slavic Codex - Witch ?

I didn't make it too clear in this 1st Edition sorry! Hopefully, I can make a 2nd Edition of it soon to clarify, but the 'Kulduny' Class also falls into the Witch category as well. This just requires a simple Alignment change and obviously an allegiance to Czernobog and his demons of the Underworld ...

Re: Oriental Classes?

The good thing is, I am part Korean/Japanese in reality, so this isn't out of my expertise really. It is all part of my heritage and background, and boy is it! The Celtic thing is my academic expertise, and I am soon to add the Asian to it as well with a degree or two as well. Expect the same level ...

Re: Codex news...

On a related note: The 2nd Edition to the ' Codex Celtarum ' is done, and it is over 200,000+ words in size. To put this in perspective, the average Codex is roughly about 79,000. In this new and FINAL edition, only barely 8-10% of it is what you see in the 1st Edition, everything else is newly wri...

Re: Sufi mystic cleric ?

This is amazingly already possible. Such a character can be made from a mix of the Shaman class in the Codex Slavorum and the Celtic Druid in the soon-to-be-revealed 2nd Edition Codex Celtarum . I had noticed there was a lack of this overall and now, with these Codices covering ancient cultures, I c...

Some Asian-oriented stuff would be great. I liked the 1st edition Kara Tur boxed set, though it had its flaws. Didn't like when they tried to mash up Rokugan with Oriental Adventures. For me, keeping the cultures separate is key. I hated how they mixed up Japanese, Chinese, and Korean names and Rom...
