I always have to ask about these classes when I get into them, but if I want a paladin chassi, then I must start with judgement.  Is that correct?

Yes, yes it is. Same for rogue chassis and Escoterica Radica. You don't have to take either as your fast track though, as per house rules.

If you go pally, I'll be looking forward to seeing what sort of creed and/or refluff you're running :P

I've been considering it, i'm just a tad bit reserved about going through with it.

Well if there was ever a game to play a dragon in, it'd be this one. But if you're more comfortable with something a bit more humanoid, half-dragon or demi-humanoid creature with claws, wings and natural armor works just as well

So if we are doing legendary then at level 10 we get 3 legendary abilities, right? One for each tier.


~EDIT~

Ok, so I think my character concept is really starting to come together.
I'll be going with the Dragon chassis, adding barbarian's Path of Destruction, and M/C into Fire Elemental. I'm definitely going to use two lesser items to boost strength and charisma.  The rest is still mostly getting figured out.

A being with thick blackened armor rides across the field of burning on its fearless mount. The heavy silvery visor covering its face gives it a look of emotionless contemplation that sends waves of dread through the souls of its misfortunate victims. It seems with its every breath is born a flame to burn those pitiful souls and anyone that gets close enough to its flame cracked armor lives only long enough to see their entrails spill onto the charred earth as its great claw slashes like its harvest day.

indeed. Speaking of Legendary abilities, I just looked them through.

The following are banned:
Origin Story (due to bookkeeping headaches that I don't want to deal with)
Suave (as I don't use the standard Social Encounter rules)
Awesome Presence (see above)
Full Sanction (see above)
Minions (as I expect you to get a lot more minions than that via recruiting/creating/reanimating/cthulhu them)
Awesome Lair (as I expect you to get a shared one via recruiting/creating/reanimating/cthulhu it)
Arrangements (as I expect you to actually make and carry out such plans in character.)
Protean (see Origin Story)

Note that some of the ones on the ban list are 4th teir Legendary abilities and as such aren't relevant yet.

CRUSH. KILL. DESTROY. HUG.

Yeah, expressing interest.
"Honestly, I don't know if this non-core option is 1.0-ready"

No, it isn't. It may be updated at some point but it isn't 1.0-ready, which is why it isn't in 1.0. Anything that isn't in the 1.0 core rulebook should be treated as not being 1.0 compliant and used with caution if at all.

When I've gotten reasonably close to an applicable amount of sheets, I'll post a deadline for the remainder of the sheets, so it depends in part on how fast people are at statting up their stuff and writing up bios. Also, if the amount of voiced interest all -> sheets, I'll be running two groups.

Hopefully I'll have mine ready sometime tomorrow at the latest.

Question for anyone. So the rules about the dragon's natural armor seem to be telling me that I can get the enchantments like normal, but the normal armor bonus applied to the appropriate tier sounds like it does not apply and instead I must use the dragon's armor bonus.

For example:
Spoiler
Dragon  Instead of  Magic Armor
  • Lesser item +0 Instead of +2 to Armor Class
  • Greater item +1 Instead of +3 to Armor Class
  • Relic +1 Instead of +4 to Armor Class
  • Artifact +2 Instead of +5 to Armor Class

Potentially, maybe the one just adds with the other. That's what I'm hoping, but I never like to assume best case scenario.
So someone please tell me they add together.   ;D

the bonus for the dragon's armor being enchanted stacks with the dragon's normal armor bonus, not a normal magic armor bonus.

They don't. Probably to prevent you from reaching utterly ridiculous levels or armor with it. Basily, your green numbers are correct.
