Being able to build your character the way you want is also part of the strength of a good class system and it should allow for as many play styles as possible. Adding more ways to play means more variation in building the party, in my opinion. And that's a good thing.

The more characters have different roles the more opportunities for unique party combinations. I'm not thinking about this on a personal level, I started this thread because I think this a great play style that will enhance the game. Besides, nobody is advocating that Wizards should be allowed to supplant dedicated melee fighters. Also, you have to think about this from a roleplaying perspective - this adds a different way to roleplay Wizard characters, and that's important.
There were some spells in the IE games where a mage summoned a magical weapon. However, such spells never seemed viable or as effective as the traditional fireball or chain lightning spells, mainly due to dismal THACO and armor class on mages. The whole idea of class system is to exchange flexibility for strategic and tactical clarity pawn - moves forward, captures diagonally; mage - wears only robes, throws fireballs and also teach dumb players to play coherent characters not Elder Scroll like wielders of destruction magics in heavy plate who can sneak-kill a fly by prowling behind it and hitting with two-handed hammer.
It's not unprecedented. It was something you could do in Dragon Age: Origins, although it wasn't very effective. The idea of a mage-knight type of character has always appealed to me. Strict class restrictions have always seemed odd to me. Combining the rudimentary abilities of two classes not more than that, doesn't seem like it would be harmful to me, especially if the end result balanced out to an adaptive character who can't achieve the maximum capabilities of either of the pure classes they're drawing from, but able to deal with a broader range of combat situations than if they were devoted solely to one pursuit.
Not a jack-of-all-trades, strictly speaking, but a character who's prepared for a greater variety of situations than some others. I would much rather prefer developers spend their resources on fleshing out the unique class abilities which are there to make a choice of taking that class in a party or not. Instead of creating some sort of clever workaround for a wizard to go into melee, adding two more dialogue lines for him about found books on Ancient poetry, some more when you find magically sealed passages or another interesting spell like levitation to cross pits or swamps would be preferable.
Class adaptivity is much more based on off-combat content, than on multiple ways to bash crap out of monsters. Well then don't play one. But that's no reason for it not to be included. If your idea of the perfect fighter is one who wears light armor and uses a variety of dazzling rapier attacks in rapid succession, we want to help you make that character.
So it's good to think of Project Eternity's classes as being purpose-ready but not purpose- limited. Since this is clearly a case of us having different expectations and preferences of class systems, shall we just agree to disagree? I understand and respect your point of view and hopefully you feel the same way about mine.. But anyway, you're right that it's not unprecedented. Wizard with a sword is replaceability, not flexibility.
Every class replacing other class because of tailored "build" is an MMO route. You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.

The thing is, there's no reason not to support multiple ways of playing a class. AGX Edited February 15, by AGX Heard they want to make lockpicking a universal skill too? It seems to me that a painter has a duty to try to put an idea into his work. This is far from all theology — simply the fact that the poorest woodcutter, heath farmer or miner can have moments of emotion and mood that give him a sense of an eternal home that he is close to. Later, in a rare expression of his own religious feelings, he wrote expressly about this lithograph and two other drawings also posed by Zuyderland, of an old man reading a Bible and saying grace below respectively:   .
My intention with these two and with the first old man is one and the same, namely to express the special mood of Christmas and New Year. Belief in a "life beyond the grave" is central to one of van Gogh's first accomplished lithographs, At Eternity's Gate Executed at The Hague in , it depicts an old man seated by a fire, his head buried in his hands. Near the end of his life Van Gogh recreated this image in oil, while recuperating in the asylum at St. Bent over with his fists clenched against a face hidden in utter frustration, the subject appears engulfed in grief.go to site
Certainly, the work would convey an image of total despair had it not been for the English title Van Gogh gave it, At Eternity's Gate. It demonstrates that even in his deepest moments of sorrow and pain, Van Gogh clung to a faith in God and eternity, which he tried to express in his work. Seven impressions of the lithograph are known, of which one is annotated At Eternity's Gate. The same theme is taken up again in two later studies of a seated woman.
Vincent van Gogh suffered from some form of mental illness , acutely during the last two years of his life. The official diagnosis furnished by the hospital in Arles that Van Gogh was taken to on Christmas Eve, , following the celebrated incident involving his ear , was "acute mania with generalised delirium". There is no agreement today over a modern diagnosis of Van Gogh's illness. Suggestions include epilepsy and bipolar disorder , possibly exacerbated by excessive absinthe drinking, heavy smoking and venereal disease.
Symptoms were varied, but in their most severe manifestations they involved attacks of confusion and unconsciousness followed by periods of stupor and incoherence during which he was generally unable to paint, draw, or even to write letters. On February 22, , Van Gogh suffered his most severe relapse, an episode Jan Hulsker called the longest and saddest of his life, and one which lasted some nine weeks through to late April. It is in these drawings and paintings that Hulsker sees unmistakable signs of his mental collapse, otherwise rare in his work.
Hulsker remarks that it would have been remarkable for Van Gogh to have copied his lithograph so faithfully from memory.

At Eternity's Gate is a biographical drama film about the final years of painter Vincent van Gogh's life. The film dramatizes the controversial theory put forward by Van Gogh biographers Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, in which they speculate that Van Gogh's death was caused by mischief rather than it being a suicide.
Principal photography took place in late over 38 days at various locations across France where Van Gogh resided during his final years. It was released theat.
