Does it have to be a modern gun? Captain Kirk made a gun in half an episode while being chased by a Gorn.

You might be able to get away with a flintlock if you suck the GM's penis hard enough.


However, the requirement that it work reliably kind of makes Kirk's bamboo cannon non-viable.

When WoTC's publishing schedule is so scant, that a Deodorant company can release 5e D&D Classes and it becomes noteworthy among social media gaming groups. The real irony is that the class is meant for an earlier edition, it's more of a 3e class than a 5e class.

Shouldn't it be now a Barbarian?

Yeah, that class... I wonder if someone made it back when 3rd was actually in print, and had it hanging around? That would explain a lot, actually.

That's totally 3.5 (or, argueably, Pathfinder).

If you wanted any even more proof that WotC completely shat their bed after 3.5e, you need to look no further than this. It's fucking 2018 and when Old Spice's agency decided to go with a "D&D class" ad campaign (and in the process doing their research to avoid community backlash) they went and picked the edition that ended 10 years ago.

I see Climb as class skill so 3.5.

And although I agree it shows that 5e is doing rather poorly, I would bet a big company making their own homebrew would be noteworthy news even when 3rd edition was still being officially supported. This is can you imagine old spice releasing their own Skyrim mod?

It's a Pathfinder class, I think? Linguistics as a class skill.

It seems like it would be a pain in the butt to get the licensed officiant proposal modifier, since it requires the player to physically bring one to the game.

I mean, sure, some people can get a priest to come down to their D&D game for a +15 modifier, but it seems like a lot of work.

Also, the lack of clear organizational management rules makes the MBA a real mother-may-I skill.

Can the Old Spice marketing team tell the difference between 3.X and 5e? I'm pretty sure which edition this class ended up in is a matter of which edition the local D&D guy happened to play.

My personal theory is that someone on the marketing team is a D&D guy and already had this made, and decided to pitch it to the team, possibly because D&D is getting a tad more accepted in the mainstream because of Stranger Things/Gravity Falls/etc. Maybe because they play 3.W/e, maybe because they used to play 3.W/e but don't play anything currently, or whatever.

I'm guessing referencing both Climb and Perception is part of the joke.

It's probably for Pathfinder since it has Linguistics and Stealth. Pathfinder has Climb.

You're right, plus it mentions skill ranks (PF) instead of skill points (D&D) without 3.X's x4 multiplier at first level.

Considering the "Download this new Old Spice Gentleman Class for the greatest role playing game of all time, which we cannot mention for legal reasons", I'm not sure if an honest mistake or part of the joke or if they're actually serious that they're using Pathfinder rules.
