Hello, everybody and welcome to a veryspecial bonus action coming right at you from triple advantage. Today wehave your regular crew back at you again, brain Jordan and myself, Carlosand join to day. We have a special guest Bradley. The reason Bradley ishere is why we're dropping this bonus action in the first place, Royal CitySociety has created a new class for you guys to play in your five games soBradley without further Adou. What din't you tell us a little bit aboutthe Arcane Blade, so the Arcane Blade is a classthat's kind of inspired by mixingmagic and Sord play, as well as using elements to deal damage, and where did you get alittle bit of inspiration from this is like I've seen some of this before,like you have like some ware wizard...

...somes like imbuing, runs and whatnot,or is it more so pure arcane energy being fed into these weapons? Video Games that kind of stuff some of the abilities were definitelyinspired from video games like dark souls, the black serpentsmell and final fantasy. So when you see so when you seeyourself playing as this class kind of what kind of hero do you do you picture kind of like a fighter, but you have like lightning crackling down yourblade or that kind of thing, just raw power with magic and...

...sort combined. Can you tell us a littlebit about the main features that define this class,something that stands out to you guys in general about it I mean you guys are the ones that workon us for most and sort of open up the Florida everybody to jump in here. But what are some of those features ofthise class? You guys are super excited about sure. So the main features of thisclass are the elemental blade and the stances both are developed in firstlevel of the class. The elemental blade as it suggests,allows a character to emview their sword with a form ofelemental magic such as fire or lightning or cold damage that kind ofthing, and that blade will serve as your mainweapon throughout the entire. As you develop this character,...

...then the stances is the other key partof this class. The stances are away for your character to develop as afighter. Essentially it sets you up to act in a particular way or to have yourcharacters stand in a way that would allow you to act either defensively oroffensively, or it kind of it feels like you know. If aperson were to learn a particular type of fighting style, but not be you know the fighting stylefound in DND FIB right it. It would look like that. So you'd set yourselfup and then you would do a particular set of moves that helps you cleavthrough enemies or protect certain people or that kind of thing. So thesedances are what are going to. You can choose themkind of as you enter combat, and then you can change it up as you gothroughout the battle, so it allows a...

...little bit more fluidity there. Ireally like that to because I find that it allows a player to be a little bitmore maleable and combat as well. You can serve different rules as needed.Right, yeah I'll jump in on this tance point andsay that I'm also incredibly excited for that future. Specifically, I'vebeen playe testing this class a little bit in a small campaign that our friendMat is running uh and it just like it feels fresh tisability there's a lot oftimes. You'll play a new subclassor, a class. It's like Oh yeah! This is Ikind of get how this works. It feels similar to this. So I kind ofincorporate my previous knowledge stances through me e right for a loop Iwas I was like. I was trying to figure them out. I was trying to quickly adaptto okay, so this is the best for this situation. Now I'm going to switch offto this because I'm planning on doing this. It allows such a wide range ofversatility in just how you play your turn, so itgives it gives you an opportunity to...

...kind of think through your turns a bitmore in cat. How do I optimize this? How do I get the best turn that I can have out of thesedances and it just like it's something that I really haven't seen in a classOora subclass so far, it's weird and incredibly refreshing toactually have to stop and go like. I really don't understand this ability right offthe bats like I've got t actually take some time and sess it out and feel howit goes right right and, as this class develop,what kind of abilities ar you expecting to see as a player as in again just like level progression and afuture feat send, or I see that you can be a spellcaster aswell. Yes, so the elemental oar, the ArchamLaden, sorry, is a halfcaster. So the idea that you are a a Mele fighter with some kind of Meliproficiency, but you do also have...

...innate spellcasticg abilities and these,let you to a certain extent, trade off betweenspell casting and Maly abilities. But the thing that I like most about thisclass is that it blends the two of them right together. So you have almostspell casting through your maly abilities or spellcasting to age, yourmaliabilities and that the very edges of level I seeyou have Sol eater as a level twenty feet. It Sounds Intense O. let me read it outto the audience here: It s as a twentieth level. The dark energy aroundyour blade can become so potent that it can arip p a soul from a targetcreature. What what is he sothat level? twent ability is specificto the NECROBLADE supthus and actually, I think we should probably turn it overto Bradley and let him explain the three sub classes that we got going onin this class aright. So you got the...

Blademaster, the elementalist and theNECROBLADE, so the blade master is kind of someone who focuses on their melieabilities and that kind of thing and the elementalist focuses on all ofthe elements and the necro blade has the ability to use their elementalblade to use necronic damage instead and they get some extra spells as well, and I see you can definitely tell the differencesbetween these. What are th the sub classes themselves.Right I see that at the very core ofbit...

...you guys have some sort of spellcastingfocus within the abilities as well, because I notice here, for example,with the blade master, the Focus Blade is very reminiscent of a powerboard killon an attack. Yes, so again, very, very strong stuff. Here it looks reallyexciting. What kind of characters have you guysthought of with this class? Any anything particularly that you mightwant to try running? I'm really excited to dive intocharacter creation for this, just because I think that each a subclass that you have available to you with thisclass allows for kind of a different slant on the traditional character,trop Yeah Cason, exactly the classes a whole is very heroic base. Looking back on thelowers the theme of these, these heroes that are worth like tenmen in battle coming in to save the day...

...because of their expertise with thewith the Arcane Blade, and that really presents itself in the Blade Master, which I feel is maybekind of leans itself towards somebody who does want to focus more onthe mealy unless on thes spellcasting versus the elementalist, which almostdoes the reverse, so they're kind of two sides of the same class coin. There I'm excited to see what people do withthe necroblate, because the nece blade kind of has that almost that Ronan Fielto me that Samurai, without a master like this, this individual who's turnedtheir back on their past and is striking out on their own and delvinginto things that were maybe forbidden to them. In the time that dark strength. Exactly I'm reallyexcited to see how that might play and we'll continue to play test thisand some of our games now that it is under the official Roral City Societyumbrella.

But Bradley have the just Pique my interest here, but have therebeen any other subclasses that you have planned Thorgh, this arcane blade class,anything else that you want to explore, or are you pursuing other projects for a little bit now? I'm sure there are a lot of things thatyou can do with it, but right now I don't have any ideasgoing forward right I mean it takes a long time to developa full class and I think I was watching a guys work away at itboy at the find details of it and it's fun. It's it's cool to see. You guys come up witha full new way to play this game really because, like a lot of a lot of content is subclasses, but this, I think, opens up for otherpeople at Royal City Society to work on different subclasses for even this aswell. Well, when did we start this...

...class Braly? Was it like back inNovember, or something was on to that Yeah Yeah we've been chipping, Awin etit for a while and rightfully so right like it takes along time to not only like finalize what you want for it, the kind offlavoring, but then top of that you need to play test and whatnot, and that's wherethis class I think is headed now, is more uftor the finding out what isbalanced or not, and I think that we hout to hear formany of our viewers that decide to try this out and yeah some ideas about what works. Whatdoesn't and what might be able to be improved. Allfeedback is appreciated. Everybody here at Rosisis City Society, is superexcited to keep creating content for you guys, but we know that the fasterthat the content is produced theless we actually get to playtestit. So any any feedback is greatly appreciatedfrom you guys, but I think that the...

...that pretty much covers the class as awhole. We'd love for you guys to go, try it out and let us know what youthink make sure you go to our instagram page at Royal City Society and catchyou guys on the next little bonus action and are regularly scheduledpodcast that you're definitely tuning into right right and I'd like to think Bradley on behalfof Royal City Society for developing this class alongside us. We hope thatwe can do more work with you in the future.
