I don't see Iaijutsu Focus as a Class Skill, so maybe that at level one and delay everything else one step?

I could but I'm not sure it would be balanced.  They gain an extra skill (but no ranks in it unless they spend them) and lose a Feat.

Maybe give them that skill and skill focus in it. Or maybe half their samuri levels as a bonus to Iajutsu focus. Also that path should definitely get quick draw as a bonus feat.

All the Feats Sets for Military Training are done and edited into the 1st page, I jsut have to make sup the new ones, and I'm getting ready to edit them in.  Any thoughts on the Feat lists so far?  THings I left out I shouldn't have for example?

Initially I named the 20th level ability Daimyo with the expectation of giving you some sort of Increased abilities with the Leadership Feat, but my muse has fallen silent. 

So anything you guys would like to see for the capstone?

A capstone specific to your path?

Possible but I've done that with so many PrC's I wanted to try something else.

Also the first two Feats I needed to make are done, and the EPic Samurai now gets a Bonus Feat based on his Military Training path.

The problem is that each path makes for a very different build, so they can't all benefit as much from the same capstone.

Yup.  But I wanna try to think of something that pulls that off somehow.

I got all the Feats done cept for the School Feats.  Come of them feel a little clunky but my mind is elsewhere so I intend to come back to it later.

Eh, if you read it once through, they might seem a bit clunky, but if you consider what they're doing, they seem just fine.

Still thinking up some ideas for those school feats, haven't abandoned you yet!

Yays!  :bounce

I'm trying to come up with some ideas too I just needed to get those others out of the way.  I think I may have an Idea for Daimyo, but I wanna fool around with it a bit offline before posting.

Coming soon I swear.

Okay I have one version of the Daimyo ability edited in on page 1.  Whaddya think? Is the bonus ok or would allowing them to reroll a failed roll be better?

I think there's very little connection between the name Daimyo and the ability. Apart from that, which kind of action does it take?
A suggestion: an extra standard action once per encounter, or CHA mod times per encounter.

If it's ToB-based and doesn't feel like Samurai Jack, then you're doing it wrong.

Heh...truer words never spoken...

Tweaked Daimyo again, and added the names of the first 3 schools I'm gonna make Feats for.  If there are other schools I should definitly be adding let me know.

It should be around 40k-50k, IIRC...

Hmm.  Flick of the wrist (complete warrior) might be a good choice for the iaijutsu path as well, but I'm not sure where you'd put it.

Thanks risada!

Flick of the Wrist can only be used with Light Weapons, so that leaves out Katanas  :(
