Invention is its own reward.

In a world brimming with wizards who learn the secrets of magic, sorcerers born with magic in their blood, and ethermancers who communicate with a cosmic blob of energy and subsequently throw bits of that blob around, it seems strange that there would be intelligent individuals who decide to work with the laws of physics rather than tell the laws of physics to sit down and shut up. Still, they exist.

These individuals are known as gadgeteers, imaginative engineers who prefer the hands-on nature of physical experimentation over the constantly staring at books that is arcane experimentation. Wielding custom-built weapons and a myriad of strange and amusing accessories, the primary advantage of the gadgeteer over the wizard is flexibility in creation. Though a wizard may know hundreds of spells, it takes weeks of work to make a fireball behave even slightly differently. A gadgeteer, on the other hand, can simply rewire her gadget tomorrow morning and have something new ready to go!

The end result of over two months of development, The Gadgeteer: Mother of Invention is Interjection Games' largest product by word count to date. Skirting the line between offensive spellcaster and support character, the gadgeteer's primary innovation is the advent of a Structure Point, or SP pool. These SP are used to create custom weapons from whatever stock weapons are lying around, as well as strange and ridiculous accessories that range from duct tape to a spy cigar stocked with everything from a one-exposure camera to a parachute. In short, a character who wants better accessories must make do with inferior weapons, and vice versa. Custom weapons and accessories can be changed daily, making the feel of the class somewhat like the Incarnum of the old Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 days.

Gadgeteers who invest in the Juryrigging feat become capable of creating accessories on the fly, much like a certain secret agent whose name prompts a roll on the Lawyer Random Encounter table.

Roleplayers are not left out in the cold with the gadgeteer! The Professional Angle class feature helps to define the gadgeteer's backstory and grants a number of bonus class skills that help the class behave the way the player wants it to be played. For the mechanically-inclined, this same class feature actually defines which of the three saving throws will have good progression, giving the optimizer that much more freedom.

Product Features

  • The Gadgeteer base class

  • Favored Class Bonuses for all common races and many featured races

  • A smattering of feats

  • 58 custom weapon gadgets

  • 13 accessories with a total of 97 addons, making each accessory comparable to a sorcerer bloodline or an oracle mystery

  • Bookmarks

If sales are strong, Interjection Games will release expansions for this product, including a Secret Agent rogue archetype for those who want to play the suave spy rather than the inventor.

Gadgeteer v.1.1 Patch Notes

- The gadgeteer's Structure Points per blank has been increased by +1 at all levels.
- The beta terminology "Gadget Points" has been thoroughly eliminated.
- The gadgeteer is no longer referred to as a rogue, nor is it referred to as a "gadgeer".

Custom Weapons

- Custom weapons can now retain weapon special abilities by spending SP equal to twice the special ability's base cost modifier. By logical extension, if a weapon special ability has a flat cost, it is always suppressed.
- Custom weapons now clearly state that their bonuses and penalties are only applied when actively wielded, unless clearly stated otherwise. ^^

Accessories

Chemical Dispenser - Enabler adds a flat bonus to alchemist extracts and bombs rather than maximizing them.

Energy Bar Compressor - Boosted from healing 1d4 to 1d8. Addon that stacks more 1d4s is now 1d8s, but can be stacked fewer times....See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
