What a class! Under Spellcasting, this AA currently has Arcane Spell failure in Light Armour but not Med; might want to change that.

I got one. Why are you calling it spellcaster supremacy?

Only thing I've seen to far is Circle of Spores. And it looks kind of interesting since the 14th level ability lets you walk into CC-effects. Going super plant mode at that level also gives 28 temp hp & +1d6 poison to melee which is a nice compliment. The crappy reaction to deal 2d10 but fort negs seems lame. But the reddit image sliced through the zombie which is the highlight to me. It appears that since the zombie re-dies they can just be reanimated turning them into a perpetual zombie that every hour loses it's hp unless the missing text limits this.

So, what are your opinions on the Ravnica stuff?
"Philosophy aside, the fact we've had to destroy Dark Force each time means we have devoted precious little time to understand how it works. Starving it of negative emotions to assemble from is certainly one method of dealing with it permanently, but then so would preventing its ability to assemble in the first place. For one thing, we don't know for a fact how many races contribute to its creation - it could be a galaxies-wide phenomenon for all we know.
My guess it that it doesn't come out all at once. It builds strength over time. That's why whenever we encounter it, it has already infiltrated each civilization's society one way or another. Which means there must be some place, or places, that it uses to gather its strength. If we can devise a way to find such places, we can find ways to prevent it from rising.

A naturalist might argue that Dark Force emerging each time is a part of a natural cycle we must see to, preventing civilizations from growing too big or somesuch nonsense. There are even those that theorize we created Dark Force intentionally as a way of getting rid of our ugliest energies. I call bullshit on both."
Amaterasu's not really the right person to have a philosophical argument about what it means to understand something enough to control it. :p
:”There’s a reason why every civilized world teaches their children to not play with it. Before sentience existed there were millions of years of the living  being burned alive. Even in modern cities fire remains one of the top dangers, even in the most utopic worlds it is the one danger remaining and those that fight fires are considered the greatest heroes there."

:"Now some theories follow that analogy, claiming that Dark Force is the manifestation of building up of negative energy of the living, more in particular our dark emotions. Rage, sadness, anger, fear, hate. Many claim to understand them, yet many let their lifes be led by such negative emotions as well. Yet they have their uses. Rage can be a powerful weapon, fear is a powerful defense mechanism, sadness can help find happyness, hate can lead to motivation. Regardless, Dark Force itself always appear where such feelings are more intense."

:"So if those theories are correct, the only way to fully destroy Dark Force would be to fully supress said negative emotions. But if you eradicate all negative emotions from people… Would they still be people? Some civilizations tried to build AIs to find an answer to that question, and the only result were armies of rampaging robots intent of genociding or assimilating all living lifeforms.”
"That's like saying that every time someone tried to start a fire, they burned themselves and their whole family. How fire behaves is knowable. Ancient forces we only know about because they keep leaving ruins around don't seem that easily used."
