Jack of All Trades

For any Pc that still might have this, I think this structure:

Jack of All Trades
The Jack of All Trades is a new path that may be purchased by any player. Players may choose skills from the core rule book as well as the two expansion skills of “Use Shield” and “Dual Wield”. No other expansion skills may be purchased through this path.
Advanced skills can only be chosen within paths that the jack of all trades has at least two Basic skills. More powerful versions of skills cannot be bought unless the less powerful skill is bought first. For example, a Jack of All Trades could not pick up the Channel skill without first having the Lesser Channel skill.
Unlike other paths, players may not purchase Jack of All Trades skills individually, i.e. you have to choose Jack of All Trades as your primary path and buy them an entire level at a time.

Basic
Any 4 Basic Skills
Advanced
Any 2 Basic Skills
Any 2 Advanced Skill
Master
Any 4 Advanced Skills


Should change to this:

Basic
Any 4 Basic Skills
Advanced
Any 2 Basic Skills
Any 2 Advanced Skill
Master
Any 3 Advanced Skills
Any 1 Master Skill



Losing 3 master skills for greater flexibility seems plenty, as long as that master skill is supported by 2 basic, and advanced from the same path.

Hello! I didn't want you to think we didn't see this or was ignoring it. Thank you for the suggestions.
Mike: For the majority of you, choosing to use a packet instead of a weapon is a hindrance because your aims suck.

Travis: Crap he is on to me.

Kalphoenix is wrong Brian - we totally wanted you to think we are ignoring you and your silly ideas.

Re: Jack of All Trades

Right now the official GM response is...
Per the 2016 rule changes,
-Jack of All Trades
----Getting rid of it
----Anyone currently playing Jack of All Trades can keep it until they die or walk off into the sunset

The other option would be to rewrite the character if they have not played that character since the rule changes. We have no desire at this time to revisit rule changes concerning Jack of All Trades.

Please also note that while you are more than welcome to ask for his opinion, as of the end of the 2017 season, Phil has stepped down as a GM. His thoughts might not carry weight in upcoming rules changes or rules during events.

Re: Jack of All Trades

HE DID?!??!!? HOLY CRAP HOW DID I MISS THAT?

I know he stepped down, hence why I posted "Any thoughts on my suggestion Phil" as opposed to "Any DECISIONS on my suggestion Phil". I chose my words intentionally...like always.

Put the sass back in the can missy... :p
