So body outside of body.

It states that the clones have all your abilities, except spellcasting and the ability to activate items.

Wujen 15/Archmage 5

You can use Body outside body as an SLA 8 times each day (via archmage). For your other archmage ability, choose your save or die, or damaging spell of choice as an SLA.

The number of duplicates you have in round n is equal to the number of duplicates formed in rounds n-10 to n. (The clones last only 10 rounds)

The clones formed in round n-1 create 4^(n-1) clones in round n. The number of clones formed by the clones from round n-2 is 4^(n-2). And so on. The number of clones formed in round n, in total is the sum (i going from 1 to 8) of 4^(n-i). Call this C(n)

So the number of clones you have in round n is the sum (j going from 0 to 10) C(n-j).

This function gets absurdly huge very quickly. Now what do you do with this many clones? You have them fire their SLAs at whatever you want. Now each round they use their SLAs, you lose clones. This can be fixed by taking quicken spell like ability for whatever their attack SLA is, and/or using recaster to get greater arcane fusion as an SLA. You get to use body outside body AND use an attack spell then.

In one minute, you have over a million clones. In twenty minutes, you have far more clones than there are elementary particles in the universe.

At this point, your greatest problem becomes coordinating with yourself.

The real question here is, how do you get Falcon Punch as an SLA?

At this point, your greatest problem becomes Archimedes.

Fixed that for you.

So THIS is how Naruto does Kage Bunshin-no-jutsu.

It's in the PHBII under monk alternate class features, a one level dip will suffice. After that you can blow feats on getting the fire and such.
