  • Thu, 23:11: The Guts class for Ghostbusters is turning out pretty neat, actually. Half barbarian, half empathic healer.
  • Thu, 23:13: The specialty trees are “Big Lug” (ally defense/healing like a paladin), and “Danger Magnet” which is basically an avoidance tank.
  • Thu, 23:13: This is the Ray Stantz class. ;)
  • Thu, 23:13: He takes damage, so you don’t have to!
  • Thu, 23:15: It’s weird mapping the GB to traditional class structure. Egon = wizard is easy. But Ray = tank and Peter = healer surprised me!
  • Thu, 23:17: That presumably puts Winston in the role of the fighter, tho it’s harder to nail that down from movie evidence.
  • Thu, 23:23: Anyway! The classes in my GB conversion don’t map 1:1 w/ D&D, otherwise I’d just stick with D&D classes. But they do have elements.
  • Thu, 23:24: Brains is mostly wizard/sorcerer, which boils down to crowd control/AoE in combat and know-it-alling out of combat.
  • Thu, 23:25: Brawn is basically fighter, single-target DPS and durability… and spends their time out of combat depending on their background.
  • Thu, 23:26: Guts as I say is kind of a barbarian/paladin multiclass. Moves is rogue/monk. And Wits will be rogue/bard, mostly.
  • Thu, 23:27: Mapping the original team: Egon = Brains, Ray = Guts, Peter = Wits, Winston probably Brawn/Guts, Rookie possibly Moves.
  • Thu, 23:28: Rookie is a weird case because other than his ability to figure out mazes or difficult logistical problems, his abilities are nebulous.
  • Thu, 23:29: He’s certainly not got much in the Cha department.
  • Thu, 23:30: I suspect that by the time I’m nearing completion on this, the new movie will be out. I shall be very curious to see how that will impact.
  • Thu, 23:30: It exists already in Pathfinder and is called “alchemist."
  • Thu, 23:31: If the new movie ghostology and tech maps to clear analogues in the original, the rest should be pretty simple.
  • Thu, 23:32: From what I can see from the trailer, the proton packs are pretty much the same. Not sure about traps/containment unit tho.
  • Thu, 23:32: The main difference seems to be that there are also proton pistols and proton gauntlets. Which look pretty awesome.
  • Thu, 23:36: As for personalities, so far it looks like Gilbert = Brains (Professor), Abby = Guts/Wits, Holtzmann = Brains (Inventor), Patty = Brawn.
