    i have looked and i cannot seem to find a "how to guide" for making prestige classes. i found some prestige classes on the internet and while there are good ones, there are also some not-so-good ones you could say. does anyone know of a how to guide for making prestige classes? i would like to take some of the themed kits from the old AD&D and create new prestige classes and before i start i was wondering if anyone has or knows where i can find some guidelines for that activity. thanks in advance.

    There really isn't a standardized way to build a Prestige Class. It's more a skill (although some might call it an art Wink) that you become more comfortable with as you stumble along through the design process.

    If you've not dabbled with them before, then a good place to start might be with some guidance from the gentlemen who (IIRC) created the concept during the 3E design process, Mr. Monte Cook.

    Back in Dragon #274 he wrote an article called "Class Acts: Create Your Own Prestige Classes" which discussed what a Prestige Class is supposed to be as well as some techniques for designing them. You can buy the PDF of the magazine on Paizo's website for around $5.00 US.

    It helped me get a better grasp on the process way back when. Your mileage, of course, may vary! Happy

    Hope that helps!
