Changed the Esuna spell to require to spend more MP to cure higher level status effects. Changed pricing on Power Rods/Staves and added a damage component equal to the caster's casting modifier. Changed Green Mage's first ability to increase duration of the appropriate type rather than +1 round.

9/29/2013 - Minor update: Made a few changes to the Monk class, added a couple of new abilities. Edit/Cleaned up the Monk Archetypes due to the change. Since the new Esuna change, I removed all the spells that are no longer required (Stona, Vox, Poisona, Cleanse, etc). Removed Toxify, changed Poison/Bio a little bit. Added two new Necromancer spells (Zombify, Mass Zombify), and added new blue mage spells that were created in my FFd20 campaign. Thanks to Cycopaethic (forum user) who sends me walls of text on suggestions to fix errors or make suggestions, he has been invaluable.
Edit: The night is young! Also made changes to the Gunner class, filling out a few problem areas that seem empty as well as removing gunblades from the class and dropping the lightning shot ability (as rapid shot feat mimics it). Made a few changes to the firearms as well.
9/26/2013 - Minor update: Made some minor adjustments to the Necromancer class, changed out its capstone ability. Added new summon undead spells to the necromancer spell list. Changed the classic spells' bonus damage to +1 per level instead of what it was before.

9/19/2013 - Major update: Changed all the classic ranged touch spells (Aero, Blizzard, Dark, Fire, Light, Stone, Thunder, Water) to non-ranged touch. This wasn't a light decision. Also, removed the number of affected allies limitation on all area effect healing spells. Protectra, Shellra, and Renew got a 3rd level version as well as changing the morale bonus to resistance bonus for Bar-status, Bar-element, and Shell spells. Esuna changed to a 1st level spell and majorly changed as well as Esunaga as a 3rd level spell. Minor errors corrected on a few classes.

7/31/2013 - Major update: Created a few archetypes (with the help of Nihilarian). Some aren't done. And I'm far from being done, but wanted to put this update up for the few I do have done.
7/26/2013 - Minor update: Converted a few of the Ability Materia over to Pathfinder feats. Added 2 more Independant Materia (HP and MP Materia). Changed the costs for Spells, a bit more expensive, more on line with FF1's spell cost, but less:
1st level scrolls: 200 gil
2nd level scrolls: 400 gil
3rd level scrolls: 800 gil
4th level scrolls: 1,600 gil
5th level scrolls: 3,200 gil
6th level scrolls: 6,400 gil
7th level scrolls: 12,800 gil
8th level scrolls: 25,600 gil
9th level scrolls: 51,200 gil
Spells are and should be more powerful and this change reflects the costs. Scribe Scrolls feat reduces this cost, but by the time mages get to the higher levels, they should have enough money to spend carefully on what spells they want.
7/25/2013 - Minor update: Overhauled the Magiteks, looking buffed and scary now. Kinda regretting giving my current group 2 of them. But they probably forgot about them.
Went over the Monster Compendium once again and fixed a few errors. I also added the entries onto the website instead of just PDFs. (Finally.)
7/24/2013 - Major update: Finished the Monster Compendium Pathfinder conversion. All monsters got tweaked, nerfed, enhanced, and buffed. Blue Mages got a few more spells and a couple revised ones as well. Summoner got a new spell to summon their avatars if dead.
On the Horizon:
More Blue Magic Spells based on Pathfinder monsters
Illusionist and (maybe) Medic base class
7/20/2013 - Minor update: Changed A Knight's Protection Limit Break from the Knight class. Also changed Diamond and Onyx Magister's Limit Breaks as well.
Still working on the Monster Compendium Pathfinder conversion. Its a long process. I've included a few in the PDF section. Finished A - D.
5/15/2013 - Update: Finally finished the Summoner class. Also added some new spells to the Summoner Spell List. Fixed some minor errors under skills and some spells.
5/1/2013 - Update: Finally finished the Summoner Spell List. Over the next week or so, will be doing an overhaul on the Summoner class, changing how their pets work and a few class abilities.
4/24/2013 - Update: Changed the Limit Break system. I was kinda unhappy with how it was (and still kinda am after the change), reverted back to how it was before with an added feature. Limit breaks are special abilities that all base and prestige classes get at 1st level. To activate a limit break, most require a standard action (though some limit breaks allow swift actions to be used) and you can only activate a limit break while your health is 50% or less. At 1st level, you get 1 limit break usage per day, and every 4 levels thereafter, you gain an additional limit break usage. With this new change, most of the limit breaks got a minor change.
4/15/2013 - Minor Update: Fixed prestige classes with high amount of skill ranks needed, lowered the requirements.
4/13/2013 - Update: STILL working on Summoner's spell list. Change (read: nerf) damage on a few black mage swift combo spells. I had not intended for the Black Magery damage upgrade to affect them, so I fixed it. Added Heal skill back to the White Mage's skill list. Added a line about Engineer's Automaton if its destroyed. Blue Mages now start off with spells at 1st level and gain new ones with each level gained. Fixed Soldier Prestige class, lack of Monkey Grip feat in Pathfinder. And finally, due to boredom and someone challenging me to make a base class based off Kefka, I created this, the Kefkanite (http://www.finalfantasyd20.com/ffd20/pathfinder/Kefkanite.pdf). You may snicker now, but I love it. :)
3/28/2013 - Epic update: I have fully changed over to Pathfinder for FFd20. Though, still working on Summoner's spell list.

2/22/2012 - Major changes to Bard and Summoner base classes. As well as slight changes to bard prestige classes (Dancer, Mediator, and Skald).
2/20/2012 - Minor change to Mastercrafted weapons and armor. The bonus to weapons also ignores damage reduction. Armor now receives additional DR at a cost of armor to DR ratio at half (round up for armor). For example, an adamantite plate armor +5 would normally be +10 armor, 5/- DR. With the new way, it would be +8 armor, 7/- DR.
2/9/2012 - Updated the website with the new changes as well as added new feats for Monks, Dark Knights, and Holy Knights. Changed the accessories that grant the Toughness feat to grant a static amount of HPs instead. Drop some prices for accessories.

11/3/2011 - Red Mage: Nerf the amount of Convert uses to equal 3 + Cha Mod and removed the improved versions of Convert. 5:1 is fine as it is. Dark/Holy Knights are no longer subsidiaries of the Knight class. They are now their own Base Class and to reflect such, each got a minor change. Monk's martial arts ability is now based on monk level and not at specific monk level (I know that doesn't make sense, just read it.) Now Monk PrCs gain the benefits of increased unarmed strike damage and critical hit threat range. Monk's Capstone ability changed for the better, gaining a +2 strength/dexterity/wisdom. Engineer's Automaton changed to reflect the changes in Animal Companions.
