Index to Technologists


This is the introduction to version 4.11 of the 'Technologist' character class for (A)D&D.

It has been produced as it corrects the small number of the errors that crept into version 4.0, and merges into the general spec' the separate vehicles and robot building rules. As a result there are massive additions to MechDev and some changes to TranDev. In addition some of the short-comings of the Reality Generator rules have been addressed, some of the high-level matter transmutation and creation devices renamed, and a number of devices added to plug holes either structural or esthetic. Also LifeDev has been split out of BioDev, InfoDev has been split out of ProgDev, and CreaDev has been split (mostly) out of RealDev. The device lists have been split into a main and additional/optional part, and in this DemiPro, DemiInf and GodDev have been split out of DemiDev, Systems added to list systems of devices, and a number of new lists added. Another major change is that almost all hyphens have been removed from device names.

The character class specification consists of the following files:

Please note that the above page counts may well be not up to date, as they have not been checked recently. Also, that this is not a complete version of the Technologist character class specification, as currently the Additional Devices and the Additional Rules sections are not online, and are not planned to be. It is hoped that the cross referencing will be improved at some point.
