I'm looking to make Gilgamesh from ff (either 12 or dissidia) as a race, I've looked around the forums and web but couldn't find anything, any suggestions on what he should be capable of?

we thought of that yea, we were wondering if there was something simmiler to his actual body form, he "grows" 6 additional arms...

And here I was thinking you wanted to make the original Gilgamesh. :smallsmile:

Well, depending on where you'd like to go with it, and at what level of power, I've a few ideas.

One: Build anything. Add the spell Girallon's Blessing. ??? Profit!
Two: Powerhouse (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10770831&postcount=1), aka Machamp
Three: A warforged, add Hecatoncheires Arms (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=144261).

Or, the crazy one... Powerhouse+Warforged Creature Template (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10120106&postcount=2)+Hecatoncheires Arms+Girallon Arms=5 or 6 pairs of arms!
(Girallon's Blessing has a 2 arm version and a 2 or 4 arm version dependent on CL from two different source books. I think.)

A Warforged Powerhouse is a ECL 4 character, having 2 Construct Hit Dice and 2 Level Adjustment. The spell is a 3rd level spell for the big three Tier 1s, so grab your caster buddy. The warforged component is a little pricy, definitely out of range for an ECL 4, but, well, there ya go.

And yes, I know this isn't exactly what you're going for, but eh.

Try using the Obah-blessed creature template from Dungeon Magazine 136, page 61; the LA +2 version gives you 2 extra arms and the LA+3 version gives 4 extra arms.

Depending on what this will be used for, you could either ask the DM to homebrew a magic item/spell/ whatever that gives 3 pairs of extra arms, and something to duplicate your massive collection of obvious fakes genuine weapons of legend.

If you are the DM, you can do the ideas above yourself.

On a less serious note: carry around huge amounts of weapons which you claim are rare/legendary/powerful/useful/something, but in reality is the exact opposite.

I once made a thread where I ask for opinions on a OOTS style FF Gilgamesh, and somwonw thought i was refering to a webcomic.

There are too many Gilgameshes on the internet.

You mean the one from Girl Genius? Because that's what I though when I saw this thread.
