BLAST FROM THE PAST: D20 "Prestige Class"

 This was a parody on the nature of "third edition" that I did around the time it came out 2000 or so. I placed it on a webpage on Angelfire called D20 HELL which was short-lived. Here is the page in its entirety:

For ages the crowds have delighted in the spectacle of "earth liberated" wee people. A tossed dwarf works in synch with a "tosser" (usually a fighter with at least 16 str).

Alignment: Any lawful
Hit Die: d8

Race: Dwarf.
Base Attack Bonus: +6.
Class Skills: The tossed dwarf's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are balance (dex), tumble (dex) and jump (str)

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: a tossed dwarf is proficient with all simple weapons.

Tumble of Doom: allows the tossed dwarf to attack while tumbling.

Intoxicate Crowd: for every toss the tossed dwarf is tossed gives a +1 to their bluff checks towards those viewing the toss.

Tumbling Dwarf of Fire: When a tossed dwarf reaches 3rd level they can burst into flames at the "peak" of the toss causing 1d6 damage in 5ft radius

Bouncing Bastich: Now when a tossed dwarf tumbles he can bounce up to 30 ft heights.

Pinball Wizard: At 6th level the tossed dwarf can bounce off a wall and receive a free second attack in the same round if within 10 ft travel length of the last attack.

Ricochet Rabbit: when a tossed dwarf gets two or more caroms in one round he cantriple his speed.

Laser Show: The tossed dwarf can leave a vapor trail that looks like a red laser beam. Anyone crossing the beam takes 5d6 damage. The beam lasts ten rounds.
