Okay, I was thinking about the Epic Leadership feat as it applies to a prestige class I'm working on (I'll post it in the homebrew forum within the hour). Now, it says that the highest level follower you can have is 20th level, but I calculate that you would need to have a leadership score of 52,419 to actually accomplish that. My calculations are as follows: With this score you could command 5,238,900 1st level followers (1000 + 100 per point above 40th), 528,900 2nd (1/10 1st level), 261,945 (1/2 2nd level; pattern continues from here), 130,973 3rd, 65,487 4th, 32,744 5th, 16,372 6th, 8186 7th, 4093 8th, 2047 9th, 1024 10th, 512 11th, 256 12th, 128 13th, 64 14th, 32 15th, 16 16th, 8 17th, 4 18th, 2 19th, and 1 20th.

Is there any way to actually attain this score using the SRD? Using WotC material? Using Homebrew or 3rd party material? Has anyone tried to fix this bull? Edit #2: Without munchkin (I mean obviously Pun Pun could just pump his Charisma sufficiently high)?

Edit: I know where my calculation screwed up! You are supposed to round up when caculating, let me fix that real quick :)

Edit #3: How does Legendary Commander work? I'm thinking you calculate how many followers you get and then multiply the final numbers by 10, but if it worked in the following way huge armies might actually be possible: Calculate 1st level followers, multiply by 10, use that number to calculate 2nd level followers, multiply by 10, use that number to calculate 3rd level followers, and so on. If it worked that way it would make much more sense. If you calculate that way you get more 3rd level followers than 2nd. It would actually create a need for the 20th level cap. :)
