Today, my ‘magical girl’ Pathfinder campaign, “Mazes & Misery,” begins. It’s set in our world, though much of it may occur in different dimensions. Using sources ranging from Nanoha to Madoka to Arjuna to Shana, I put together a base class for magical girl-type characters. I tried to incorporate some iconic powers, to make the class broad enough that it isn’t just magical girls, and to maintain some semblance of balance. Whether I accomplished any of this is yet to be seen. Mazes & Misery is basically going to be one long playtest of the class.
I’ll be updating here periodically about the class, its extensions (contracts and archetypes), and the campaign in which it’s being tested.
