Here's the OP from the First Thread:

This thread was suggested by Goats_o_Mjolnir, so direct thanks his way!

The purpose for the Request a Homebrew thread is for anyone to request the creation of a specific homebrewed game mechanic or concept - monsters, alternate class abilities, spells, etc. Every DM has been in the position where he or she needs an exciting new monster, unique magic item, or awe inspiring spell the PCs have never seen before, but find themselves lacking the time or inspiration to put it together themselves. Rather than go it alone, this thread's mission is to give everyone access to the fevered imaginations and creation prowess of Homebrew Design's denizens.

Below are some guidelines for this thread.

Your Request Should Be Specific: When making a request, the more detail the better. This is not a thread for very general requests - for example "I need a magic item" or "I need a CR 2 monster" would be inappropriate requests. An appropriate request would be more along the lines of "I need a CR 2 monster, non-intelligent but not mindless, for a tomb-raiding adventure in a desert environment (Egyptian influence a plus!). The party has been fighting undead a lot so far, and I'm really looking for something that they would initially think is undead to catch them off-guard. Preferably, it should have some interesting signature ability so it's not just a 'stand there and hammer each other' fight."

The Homebrew Should Be Fairly Small in Scope: Requests should be for homebrew that could be easily contained in one post - asking for a whole new base class or magic system would be a bit too much for this thread. The concept here is really for DMs to request something they expect to use in short order and don't have the time to develop themselves.

Keep it Short: While some discussion of created items posted to this thread is fine, try to keep it short and sweet. If a discussion is picking up and is going beyond about 8-9 posts (not including the request post and the post presenting the finished product), please move it over to it's own dedicated thread.

Don't Post Something Completed Looking for Feedback: Don't post something you've already made and ask for feedback on it or help with completing it. Such creations should be put into their own threads as normal.

Linking Completed Items: If you've seen something on the boards (or elsewhere) that you think would fit the needs of the poster making the request, feel free to provide a link to it. Please don't repost them entirely to the thread, though. Posting copyrighted material without permission is of course prohibited. (Claiming someone else's work as your own will result in Infractions or other penalties.)

Numbering: In order to keep things clear and cut down on excessive quoting of requests, please number requests (R.1, R.2, etc.), homebrewed up responses (H.1, H.2, etc) and comments (C.1, C.2, etc.).

If anyone has any questions about the thread itself, feel free to ask them here or send me a PM.

Let the Homebrewing begin!

I would like a 3.5 version of the Kobold Quarterly's Hogwood by John Fleming (See here: http://www.koboldquarterly.com/k/front-page10484.php)


These huge porcine creatures are often thought to be only a rumor. They have never been sighted outside of the fey realms, where they spend most of their time basking in sunny clearings. They resemble mossy mounds covered with pine shrubs and small trees when at rest. It is rare to find more than one hogwood together, but they have been known to associate with family colonies of porky pines or to serve as guardians for powerful fey…

Please pick up numbering where the previous thread left off. There's still some unfilled requests from it, and that could get confusing otherwise.

EDIT: So yours would be R. 695

C 690 OK. So... going to have to force the character to give up some of his precious WBL... Is 5 levels, with a new weapon, OR an upgrade to an existing one available on every odd level, OK?

Obviously I'm going to have to put some work into devising various types of weapons for this, and their effects, since not all of them are actually weapons :smallwink:, and the Bibliography itself won't be available (it's the main character's, and it's pretty unique).

Again, I do feel this doesn't fit best in D&D. I will make it, regardless, but I do feel making an entirely new system (and putting Pages, Librarians, and whatnot in there) would be... not easier, but more appropriate. But, as that is outside of the scope of this project, I will be making this PrC. Just give me a while, it's a bigger project than most PrCs :smalltongue:.

Sorry, I got a little exited and blurted a post. Maybe a casting prc that can be taken by fish or something that has no arms or feet, it could be geared more toward casting water spells and making due without limbs or lungs.

Hi all! I'm trying to figure out how to fix the Erinyes from 3.5 to make them into something closer to the original wrath/vengeance demon, rather than a goofy "butcher" version of the succubus as they appear in the MM. I think the CR should be similar, possibly a bit higher, so anywhere from CR 8-12 would be great, hopefully with an easy way to upgrade them to higher CR's. Thanks in advance :)

EDIT:

Cursing of some kind is a must, and decent melee abilities would be a plus. Ancient Greek or Near Eastern influence appreciated. I can offer some source material if you need it. Erinys literally means "fury."

C 697: @ Princess Try and see if you can find Denizens of Dread, the 3.5 Ravenloft bestiary. It has stats for the Furies basically straight out of greek myth. If you can't get that, I'll see if it's OGL...

Also, posting disciplines people...you're most likely going to get ignored if you ignore the request formatting and request limitations in the boilerplate...

Next request is R698.

Does anyone know of any homebrew psionic prestige classes related to the use of psionic creation powers (Psionic Minor Creation, Psionic Fabricate, et al.)? If not, then I'm aware that it's a big request; if someone's willing to do it, great, and if not I'll try it myself.

I'm currently making a new Incarnum base class themed heavily around versatility and adjustable roles (sort of a chameleon-esque Incarnum class). One central part of the class is that he will have a new chakra bind exclusive to the class, much like the totem chakra for totemists.

I'm looking for a name for this new chakra. Here are some basic guidelines:

1) It should not be an existing body slot.
2) It should fit the theme of a class that focuses on versatility.
3) It should sound awesome. :)

Thanks.

C 701 Tantien; It's the "sea of energy" in the core of the body. Connected to the genitals. Supplies all the creativity and so on.

The other option would logically be the Third Eye chakhra. I'm sure you could get a lot of potential uses out of that.

Tantien is probably best.

I've hear of a "world" chakhra, though i'm not sure if even he knew what that was supposed to be...I suppose it could be some kind of pseudo psionic crossover...

So it's my custom to do everything at once, post it, and may 3-4 tweaks to finalize it. However, I'm a bit stuck this time. So, I'm posting a skeleton for now, filled with placeholders marked with "<"s and ">"s. As inspiration strikes, I get more ideas, and/or people suggest stuff, I'll edit more in, replacing the <placeholders>.

<Placeholder>

Requirements
To qualify to become a <placeholder>, a character must fulfill the following criteria:

skills
Knowledge (<something>) <X> ranks, Knowledge (<Something>) X ranks

Special
<something to do with The class I'm doing this for (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=188294)>

Class Skills
The <placeholder>'s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are <Insert skills>

Skill Points at each level
<X> + Int modifier

Class Features

{table=head]Level|Base Attack Bonus|Fort save|Ref Save|Will Save|Special|Sigils|Whitebox Powers
1|+0|+0|+0|+2|Sigil Bound, Whitebox, Living Library|1|1
2|+1|+0|+0|+3|Sigil Study|1|2
3|+1|+1|+1|+3||2|2
4|+2|+1|+1|+4||2|3
5|+2|+1|+1|+4|Sigil Mastery|3|3[/table]

Sigil Bound
At first level, you gain the ability to bind a Sigil to yourself. Anyone with the Craft Wondrous Item feat can craft one for 2,000 Gp, plus the 160 Xp as per the feat. If you are unable to craft one yourself, or cannot find one, you can purchase one for it's Market Price of 4,000 GP.
You have a distinct advantage, in that, if you are capable of crafting the Sigil yourself, if you intend to bind it to yourself, you do not need to pay the experience cost. If you have already bound your limit, or are otherwise making it for other purposes, you must still pay the market price.

At third and fifth levels, you may bind additional Sigils to yourself.
Each Sigil you bind has different traits, and any abilities dependent on having a sigil are unique to each sigil.
Binding a Sigil to yourself requires you to spend 24 hours in meditation. Special sigils may be crafted through special means (see below) to be able to bind to you at other times, instead.

Whitebox
When you have bound a Sigil to yourself, you may call it by name to transform it into a Whitebox Weapon. This is not necessarily an actual weapon.
It takes the form of an object closely related to your personality or upbringing, such as a swordsman's whitebox weapons being swords, a wizard's weapon being a staff, or a hat, and a holy man may have a holy symbol. It may be any type of mundane object worth up to 100 gp.
While your sigil is in this form, it grants a number of abilities to you. At first level, your sigil grants one ability. At second level, it grants two. And at fourth, each sigil bound to you grants three abilities.
The same sigil always grants the same abilities. Upon level up, if your sigils can grant new abilities, each grants it's new ability, in adition to the ones already granted. Your sigils do not have to grant the same abilities as each other.

You may have your sigil transformed into it's Whitebox form for a number of rounds equal to your levels in <Placeholder> times your charisma modifier.
It is a Swift action to transform it into a whitebox weapon, and a free action to return it to Sigil form.

Living Library
Whenever you gain a level in <placeholder>, you advance certain features of the Librarian Base class as if you had also taken a level of that class. You may add your levels in <placeholder> to your Librarian levels for purposes of determining your Liber Mentat, and <Insert one or two other features to continue advancing>.
This ability does not advance any other features. <Insert more abuse-attempt deterrent language here>

Still not enough time to work on this. But, idea storming.
So, chaotic power overflowing though eyes... could work as advancing a caster.
Eyes replaced by some symbiont... squicky, not really what I'd like to handle.
Made a pact with some beholders... this would likely use the kind of eye-attacks you want to avoid.
Something like the Dragonlance story books did with Rastlin (sp?).... nyeh, it just affected him, not anyone else. and that would be a curse, not a PrC.
Still, though, a curse. Say, you had to have been cursed upon three different occasions to enter the class... and while the gaze attacks are useful, it's a bit like frenzied berserker, in that it has no friend/foe discrimination?!

...yeah, I'm just tossing those ideas out there. If I don't finish 690 soon enough, someone else can take this one. But, I'd like to try.

H 701
Just need a name? Words that bring versatility to mind are Mutable, variety, change, adjustable. None of these lend themselves very easily to names.
Especially for something like that.
I put Versatile into the Thesaurus.com search bar. Most of what I got was things like Adroit, pliable, things to do with agility and flexibility, adaptability and mobility.

You could name the Chakra to be the Ambulatory Chakra. But, what does that suggest? It walks around on it's own. Makes it seem like a Golemancer class. :smalltongue:
Maybe the Fluid Chakra. Or the Motile Chakra. Perhaps the Whim Chakra (sounds dreamy). These are ideas you could use. maybe not, but up to you.

R 702
A necromancy based Martial Discipline. It should benefit from multiclassing just a little, maybe this strike or that stance need Turn/Rebuke undead as a prerequisite.
It should mostly focus on making use of controlled undead. Gaining strength from them, and granting them strikes, and using them in complicated tactics like "You throw me at that guy, so I can hit him".
...yeah, I want one maneuver to have your undead minions throw you at a target, and then you hit it with your axe, or scythe, or sword, or whatever. Yay, mobility.

The no-discrimination is already part of RAW for gaze attacks, and there's no reason the narrowed-gaze cone-shape version couldn't do that. Hey, Narrowed Gaze could be a class ability!

Actually, that's a great idea! Have some kind of magic ability as a requirement, and make it a requirement to have been cursed (or otherwise lost control of magic) at least once.

C701 Yes it's just a name I'm thinking of. Tantien certainly sounds cool, but it might be a bit to "eastern." Flabort, I also like your input, but none of those names seem to fit either. They did get me thinking though - perhaps Shadow chakra?

Reposting as well, as it may have gotten lost in the slurry at the end of the last one.

I have one big-ish request, related to Binders from Tome of Magic.

Players of the Alternative Energy game at B12, don't look.

What I want is a special vestige for the evil NPCs. However, while bound, you cannot bind other vestiges. As a result, if one could bind multiple vestiges, he instead gets additional or enhanced abilities from the vestige. Most of the other stuff is described below.

The vestige is loosely based on an amalgam of the Beast and the Dragon of the book of Revelation; it is an apocalyptic creature, the abilities from binding it are mainly destructive in nature. It also has more deleterious effects on the binder's soul than most vestiges, as the Beast, whose body now lies dead in the Styx in a deep layer of the Abyss, was (and still is) a devourer of souls. Eventually, the binder's soul is eaten away completely, and his body is a vessel for the Beast.

Binding the Beast automatically results in a poor pact, so to speak. However, the binding check is still made to determine whether it is heavy or light influence (against a high DC); this check must be made once for every vestige slot available. While under light influence, the binder tends to revel in destruction and chaos, and must not attempt to avoid destruction or bloodshed. Under heavy influence, a binder's alignment is changed for the duration of the pact; A chaotic or evil creature becomes chaotic evil. Otherwise, each component of the binder's alignment is moved closer to chaotic evil. In addition, the binder must take any measures possible to cause chaos, destruction, or suffering.

The Beast's special requirement cannot be circumvented in any way. The Beast's special requirement is that its seal be drawn with the blood of a Good sentient creature dead no more than three minutes.

The Beast's sign increases in scale with each vestige slot occupied. Initially, it causes its seal to appear in red (not glowing) on the binder's forehead or right hand, at his choosing. In addition, his irises become blood red. Occupying two slots, the seal glows faintly, and the binder's skin gains a faint red tinge. With three slots occupied, the seal glows a bright red, giving off light as a candle. The binder's eyes are replaced by glowing red spheres, and his skin becomes a reddish hide. While the Beast occupies four slots, the binder's hide becomes scaly and his face gains draconic features. These are all in addition to any natural attacks the binder gets as a result of the vestige. ((And it's a dragon-demon-beast. I expect natural attacks.))
So, I have the fluff down pretty well, but it's kind of soft and chewy. Needs some crunch to it. Help would be incredi-awesome.

Not so much a request someone make it as a request to know if someone has made one alreddy:

Are there any Artificer/Martial Adept dual progression classes out there?

This probably isn't exactly what you want; sounds like you're looking for a PrC, but I made a Swordsage ACF, the Sage of the Forge (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10181095&postcount=6) that gives it an artificer-like craft pool, but it can only create Warheart items (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5580531); it also gains some benefits from wearing warheart and other non-magic items, particularly those he makes himself.

I'd like to see a prestige class (5-10 levels) that is completely based on improving the overrun combat maneuver (D&D 3.5).

Specifically, I was thinking things like allowing the overrun to happen during a charge (and giving a bonus to the class when doing so) as well as perhaps a trample ability. Anyone up to the task?

R 689:
A prestige class that can use Handle Animal on sentients. Slow drain to target's INT and CHA optional.

I think you can give this (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/fools/20030401c) option for Handle Animal to the gray jester (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7988336&postcount=92), then modify and refluff the class a bit and give it HA as a class skill, you´re pretty much good to go.

A dead hunter is hard to distinguish from the creature it were in life, it retains its height and weight, and the only unusual traits are grime and small rotting sores and other signs of decomposition on its body and its eyes that glow with a faint red light when it is agitated. It tries to hide these by wearing a long heavy cloak of the sort favored by many traveling adventurers, which also helps the hunter to follow his prey unnoticed.

It was in the dead of night while you arrived in a small village. loud rumbling and neighing heralded the arrival of the distance coach, this backwater´s village only connection to the outside world. It came to halt and while the driver struggled to keep the horses under control, people exited the carriage, among them a mysterious stranger in a long, hooded robe, who made the horse yelp and jump when he just brushed past. You set the light of your bullseye lantern of him and he quickly scurries toward the the Grumpy Bear tavern, where you want to lodge, making some noise as he made his way through the small crowd of people gathered at the door.
Combat
Dead hunters tend to shy away from direct combat,using their skill in subterfuge, spreading terror and archery , to harass and weaken opponents from afar before revealing themselves and finishing their prey up close. If they cannot stop them from running, they will sicken them with the dark magic of their arrows and then mark with them a brand that will easily give away those who try to hide.

Dark arrow (Su)
It is obvious, the stranger is not to be trusted, so in hopes of stopping him, you rush to follow the stranger inside, into the load uproar of a tavern by night and , by some miracle even up the stairs ,, and when it started to joggle the door to the special guest room ,you challenge the figure: ,,What are you doing here?” In response it only produces a longbow from its robes and draws it threateningly. You are disconcerted o see something like black smoke swirling around the arrow, but seize the opportunity and charge the assailant…
Only to stumble when the arrow hits you and you´re overcome with a feeling of weakness, like a fever that gnaws at your very soul.
As a full round action (that provokes attacks of opportunity) the hunter can imbue a single arrow with the foul powers of death and then fire it. If it hits, the target takes extra damage equal to the hunter´s Charisma bonus, and must make a Fortitude save against DC 19 or be sickened for 1d4 rounds, taking a -2 penalty on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saving throws, skill checks and ability checks. The save DC is Charisma-based. This is a negative energy effect. Creatures that successfully save cannot be sickened by that particular hunter´s dark arrow for 1 hour
Hunter´s mark (Su)
With you a crumpled heap on the floor, the attacker turns to break through the suite door only to be interrupted when a fat short man in a brocade nightgown, probably his target, rushed at him with a shortsword, screaming with rage and fear: ,,Who dares disturb the great ᴂdler of Dweaᴂrshire?“ The cowled man countered with a short stab that only glanced off his well fattened ribs. Like a a good arena match it was just a superficial wound, but it was still enough to leave him squirming on the ground and grabbing in horror at a wound that looked like a fire colored burn mark, seeping tainted, black blood. „You will not escape me now, mortal!“ gloated the creature with a deep, hollow voice that seems to resound.
If a hunter hits a target with a meele attack that target must make a Will save against DC 17 or be marked with a dark brand at the point of contact that bleeds and glows like a burning ember, though it does not cause the creature any harm. The dead hunter can pinpoint the location of the marked creature despite any mundane hideout or disguise as long it is within 60 feet, and gets a +4 circumstance bonus on Survival checks made to track it, if it is whiting five miles of him,or a +2 bonus If it is within 10 miles of him. The brand lasts for (The hunter´s Charisma modifier) days and can be removed with spells as least as powerful as Break enchantment or Remove curse. The dead hunter can mark only one creature at a time, and can erase an existing brand as a free action,which happens automatically if he places a new brand when he has one already active.


Terrible gaze (Su)
Finally you regained enough strength to stand up and fight, but your blade only slashed the fiendish creature´s cloak, and it retaliated by gazing at you, the crimson eyes staring into the very core of your being, and their dark intent caused the malady to resurge, and wring your life force of of you, like a shirt that is getting washed.
Range 30 feet, target is shaken for 1d4 rounds, Will save against DC 19 negates. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. If a target is affected by this ability while he is sickened by the effects of the Dark arrow ability he is not shaken. Instead,the duration of the sickening effect is refreshed (roll 1d4 and add the result in rounds to the current duration) and the target takes 3+4 points of negative energy damage each round while he is sickened. The The target must succeed at a Concentration check against DC 13 to cast spells and perform other complex actions successfully.The target can make a Fortitude save against DC 19 to prevent taking the ongoing damage and shorten the duration of the sickening effect by 1 round. The save DCs and amount of ongoing damage are based on Charisma.

Creating dead hunters
Any caster with a caster level of 12-14 can create dead hunters from mostly intact corpses of intelligent creatures with a true anatomy using the Create undead spell, provided he meets two requirements. First, he must dress the corpse in a traveler´s cape made from fine black cloth, that is however too wispy and skein-like to be useful in harsh weather. Assume that you buy it along with the material components for the spell, and that their cost covers the expense. Second,the creature that provided the corpse must have had the Track feat in life, the caster himself must have it, or he must have an aide that has it and accompanies the creation of the Hunter with a performance that takes a Knowledge (Religion) and a Perform (Any music, dance or sermon) check, both against DC 15 to perform successfully. Failure means that specific assistant can´t help in the raising of that particular corpse for 24 hours.

Dead hunter lore (Knowledge: Religion)
DC 22 Dead hunters are assassins mostly created by evil clerics to hunt and stalk living creatures. They posses a wide range of skills.
DC 27 They are very intelligent and capable of stealth, ambushes and tactical cooperation. They use a combination of ranged and meele weapons, and
nearly always travel in groups. (This level of success reveals information about organization).They are masters of wilderness survival, stealth and intimidation.
DC32 Dead hunters can use their gaze to strike fear in the hearts of men, use arrows imbued with negative energy that causes a wasting malady when used on targets they frightened, and brand the enemies they wound with a magic mark that gives away their position.

Plot hooks
-Traveling along a road you encounter a disheveled , mad woman with a glowing, bleeding brand somewhere on her body, who cries for you to save her from the risen dead who are after her life.
- Protect Gothard Guillard, the elderly, ᴂdler of Dweaᴂrshire from the undead who assault him, and accompany him on a long journey back to his family estate. Discover why he had to leave, even though he becomes distressed and defensive, when asked about his family and lineage.

..Is it just me, or do the designers gloss over a large part of undead immunities when calculating CR?
Because if you used the complex calculation method (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10313&highlight=Guide+homebrewing) (by Vorpal Tribble, at a 2/3rds of the first post) and accounted for flanking immunity, nonlethal immunity, and et cetera separately a 3 HD undead would be approx. CR 7.:smallconfused:

I´m thinking Aberration, 8-10 CR, has SLAs (PsLAs?) of Psychic warrior powers, maybe a few kineticist powers for more gish potenial.
For fluff I´m imaging that it is an enforcer or a "squad commander-slash- foreman" of sort to a troop of slavers, from a race of psinonic aberration aliens who enslaved a primitive race of humanoids on a harsh desert world. (Think the Stargate movie.)
So to summarize, a big, tough, Large-sized, humanoid abberation head slave-driver guy with both psionic powers and physical power, and some abilities to represent commanding his allies and slaves. CR 8-10.

I'd like to see a prestige class (5-10 levels) that is completely based on improving the overrun combat maneuver (D&D 3.5).

Specifically, I was thinking things like allowing the overrun to happen during a charge (and giving a bonus to the class when doing so) as well as perhaps a trample ability. Anyone up to the task?

H703

Something like this? I could also expand it to 10 levels if you like.

The Juggernaut
Prerequisites: Improved Overrun, Jump 7 ranks
Class Skills: Balance (Dex), Climb (Str), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str)
Skill Points: 2 + Int modifier
{table=head]Level|Base Attack Bonus|Fort Save|Ref Save|Will Save|Special

1st|
+1|

+0|Trample 1d4

+1|Leaping Knockdown

5th|

+1|
+4|
+1|Brick Wall, Trample 3d4[/table]

Trample: On a successful overrun attempt, you deal 1d4 damage to your opponent (in addition to any other damage that is dealt). This damage increases at 3rd and 5th level.

Charging Knockdown: You use the momentum of a charging attack to overrun your opponent. If you successfully attack an opponent during a charge, your opponent is knocked prone in addition to any damage dealt by the attack. If the attack misses, you still get to make a standard overrun attempt against that opponent but you get an additional +4 bonus (from the charge) to your strength check to knock the opponent prone.

Perfect Overrun: Opponents no longer get an attack of opportunity against you when you initiate an overrun attempt.

Leaping Knockdown: If there is at least 15 feet between you and your opponent, you may make a leaping overrun attempt against that opponent. You need to move in a straight line, however objects and creatures the same size as you or smaller do not block your jumping path. Everything is rolled as a normal overrun attempt except that you also add your jump modifier to your strength check to knock the opponent prone. Additionally, this maneuver can be used to knock prone opponents up to 2 size categories larger than you.

Brick Wall: It takes a lot to knock you down. You gain an additional +4 to your strength check to overrun an opponent and to resist being overrun. Also, any opponent that fails at an overrun attempt against you is automatically knocked prone (no save).

The Juggernought

Requirements : Strength 20, Improved Overrun, 6 Ranks Intimidate
HD : D12
Skills : Balance, Climb, Craft, Intimidate, Jump, and Tumble
Skill Points per Level : 2 + Int Mod

{table=head]Level |BAB |Fort |Ref |Will |Special
1 |+1 |+2 |+0 |+0 | Crushing Charge, Quick to the Fight
2 |+2 |+3 |+0 |+0 | Sudden Redeployment
3 |+3 |+3 |+1 |+1 | Formation Breaker, The Best Defence is Offence
4 |+4 |+4 |+1 |+1 | Thundering Charge
5 |+5 |+4 |+1 |+1 | Unstoppable
[/table]

Crushing Charge : You may now use an Overrun action during a charge. Your Overrun now deals your Strength bonus as damage to anyone Overrun. Your Overrun target may avoid your Overrun, but you recieve an Attack of Opprotunity as you pass if he does.

Quick to the Fight : You gain +5' of movement per Juggernought Level whenever moving toward an enemy.

Sudden Redeployment : In addition to knocking your opponent prone, your Overrun now pushes your enemy along ahead of you, forcing him to stop at the end of your movement. If you fail the Strength check against your opponent, you still move him half of your remaining movement at the time of impact, but he is not knocked prone. You count as one Size larger for the purpose of Overrun.

Formation Breaker : You may declare one Overrun per day, per Juggernought level, to be a Knight's Charge, allowing you to overrun all adjacent enemies to your path of charging. They all count as individuals and may not Aid Another against your charge, and anyone in the direct path of your charge may no longer avoid the overrun. You gain a +4 natural bonus to any Strength check.

The Best Defence is a Good Offence : You gain +1 AC for every 10' charged, and may make a single attack against any enemy that you have overrun. You count as two Sizes larger during any charge action.

Thundering Charge : Your crashing charge now Dazes any enemy that is knocked prone, and the sheer aggression of your charge causes Fear (DC10 + Character Level, Will Save) on a successful Intimidate check (Creature variable/DM's Choice of DC). Your Knight's Charge now causes an additional amount of Lightning Damage equal to your Strength modifier x2.

Unstoppable : You cannot be tripped, or fail any required Balance check. (Such as for charging across Grease.) Any barrier that is less than 2' thick may be Overrun as part of your charge, allowing you to count your movement divided by 10 as an additional modifier for breaking the obstacle. This does not allow you to charge through Walls of Force or the like. You may challenge opponents of any size with your overrun.

Whip Spell (Metamagic)
A whip spell may be cast using the normal casting time or a standard action, whichever is greater, while simultaneously striking with a whip. This is a melee touch attack. The spell must be a touch spell or targeted spell (contains "Target:____" in its descriptor). The whip also deals normal damage (if any) which typically comes from its enchantments since whips do not harm most creatures. A whip spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell’s actual level.

Channeling Whip
A channeling whip may be used to cast spells as if the wielder had the whip spell feat. This does not affect the level of the spell slot consumed by those spells.

Moderate evocation; CL 7th; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, creator must be a caster of at least 12th level; Price +2 bonus.

Note: I would make these +2 and +4, respectively, on a lethal damage weapon, as it's a good way to break action economy in half. Holy and merciful are a couple good enchantments if you plan on hitting both friend and foe. Even if you never use it offensively it's about the same as reach spell with minor limitations.

Lesser Fabricate
Transmutation
Level: Sor/Wiz 3
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 10 minutes
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: Up to 10 lbs./level raw material; see text
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No
You convert material of one sort into a product that is of the same material. Creatures or magic items cannot be created or transmuted by the lesser fabricate spell. The quality of items made by this spell is commensurate with the quality of material used as the basis for the new fabrication. You may only work with vegetable matter or base metals, not minerals or precious metals.

You must make an appropriate Craft (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/skills/craft.htm) check to fabricate articles requiring a high degree of craftsmanship (typically DC 15 or higher), and this spell cannot fabricate anything with a craft DC of 20 or higher (including masterwork items). Otherwise you may make any mundane item, even food, clothing or weapons.

Material Component
The raw material to be reformed: a fibrous plant for clothing; metal, wood (or a log) or an animal hide (or the whole dead animal) for weapons or armor. Etc. Plus a bit of jade dust worth 1/6 the price of the item to be made. If the materials are purchased they cost 1/3 the price of the item to be made, or 1/2 the price of the item if the cost of the jade dust is included.


Notes: Without conjuration (creation) I had to make the material component a bit more difficult to work with. And you'll have to put a rank or two in a couple craft skills if you want more complicated items, but don't forget you can take a 10 on your checks.

Dire Ravens are birds of prey that feed on carrion. They are resistant to food poisoning—a necessity, considering their diet.
A typical dire raven is 5 to 6 feet long and has a wingspan of 12 feet or more. Dire ravens occasionally learn to imitate speech and other sounds.
Combat
Dire ravens are usually merely carrion birds, preferring meat already dead. However, sometimes they gang together into large aggressive flocks, which form a terrifying black cloud that devours all in their path. They combine both claws into a single attack.
Resistance to Disease (Ex): A dire raven has a cast-iron stomach. It has a +2 bonus on Fortitude saves to resist normal diseases, but not supernatural or magical diseases such as mummy rot.
Skills: A dire raven has a +4 racial bonus on Spot and Listen checks

If anyone wanted to whip up a guath (MM1, baby beholder) swarm for me in the next couple of days, that'd be just dandy. High CR (though preferably not epic) is fine, but not required - I'm expecting the party to run away anyway. Swarms of even younger beholders (maybe with no rays at all?) would also be neat.

I want to introduce the return of an ancient race as the main antagonists in my campaign. Their speciel feature is the use of mechanics and steam, and I plan on using the Warforged as their basic soldiers while humans are specialists and leaders.

I want to introduce a mechanical "creature" which can challenge higher level characters. The creature should be some kind of machine which can be piloted - much similar to a Mech Warrior/Warstrider from Exalted with the usual steampunk armaments. I've been searching for ideas in the Iron Kingdoms books as well as a bit in Eberron but haven't found anything to my liking. Hence I now try to request this as a homebrew.

I want the Strider (I lack a better name) to be a multi-purpose machine. This is why I would like the chassis to be homebrewed so that armaments or tools can be added depending on this purpose. The chassis itself should be powerful enough to be a CR 8 - 10 encounter.

If possible then suggestions for armaments, armor platings, fuel, piloting requirements etc. is most welcome as an addition.

Level Adjustment-

You fought valliantly to protect the lair of Akanthor the Noble from the servants of the dark cult who sought to steal the eggs of the kindhearted white dragon while he was away. You were sucssful and drove them off, but yet, they captured one.
Resolved to not let the attackers corrupt if only a single egg into a terrible monstrosity, you cast a flight spell on yourself and your companions to give chase. Soon you catch up with the last three assailants remaining, extend you hand and unleash a barrage of force darts at the one who seems the most heavily injured. He scremms and plummets as the enchament of flight leaves his dying body, and large a large leather bag that has a bright blue egg stuck in hole in the side slip stom his back.
Then , in a moment of terrible silence where the cruses of all involved could be as much as felt,
You take a daring nosedinve, after a few more seconds of horror, snatch the bag with your magic and return to solid ground, leaving your companion to finish off the or two thieves
Wihle inspecting the, satchel, you are shocked to see the egg is cracked, but when you touch it with a spell for mending, its shell is suudently consumed from the inside out by a glob of translucent slime a with a faint tinge of blue. It sems to be somehow many times larger that the egg ifrom which it came. Having seen far stranger things in life, you are barely suprised, but osverve with the curiosity of s sage as the ball of phlegm starts roaming around with rudimentary itelligence, and nibbling at objects, around it comfirming to be a creature of some sort. Then you see it attempt to devour a flask of alchhemist´s fire, the contents spill out and ignite, and the creature sizzles and thickens like an egg poured into a frying pan. Overcame with curiosity, you try to scoop it up a into your bag of holding , only to dicover that its pseudopodia hit with enough force to make you stagger.

An ovial slime stands abuot two and half feet tall, and weighs 40 pounds.

Combat
Like all mindless oozes, ovial slimes spend their time roaming around looking for food wihich neans anything and everything organic, and also for a way to procreate by impregating hard shelled eggs (for example of birds and dragons) with their slime, that turns the oganic tissues into more of itself.
Because of this, these jellies are non-aggressive and wil leave large most humaniodss alone unless they are hungry. However the have sense of selfpresservation and will devite most of their efforts to run when thei HP drops to 1/6 of their normal total.

Blidsight (Ex)
The body of an ovial slime is a primitve sensory organ that can ascertain objects and creatures within 60 feet.

Congeal (Ex)
Every time the ovial slime takes fire damage at least equal to 1/6 of it´s total hitpionts
(3 hp fot this particular one) it´ s jelly tissues congeals and smoothens like a fried egg , giving it a +1 natural armor bonus, a +1 bonus to Escape artist checks and a +1 circumstance bonus to grapple checks as it´s s surface becomes smoother, and more able do deflect impact and at the same time more able to adhere to rough surfaces. For every addtional sixth of total hitopits they lose these bonuses increase by +1 until the oze dies. These improvement persist for 10 minutes from the time when the last increment of the bonuses was added.

Fire vulnerablity
An Ovial ooze takes half again as much (+50%) damage from spells with the [Fire] descriptor, and other fire based effects, both mundane and magical.

Ooze traits
An ooze possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
• Mindless: No Intelligence score, and immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects).
• Blind (but have the blindsight special quality), with immunity to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight.
• Immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, polymorph, and stunning.
• Some oozes have the ability to deal acid damage to objects. In such a case, the amount of damage is equal to 10 + ½ ooze’s HD + ooze’s Con modifier per full round of contact.
• Not subject to critical hits or flanking.
• Proficient with its natural weapons only.
• Proficient with no armor.
• Oozes eat and breathe, but do not sleep.

Plot hooks
-A wizard intrested in the creation of artificial life forms intends to find out whteher onvial smiles can be made from the eggs of other than blue dranons and has sent you to a mountain where yound dragons have feast to celadrate the laying of eggs with asilme stoved away in your backpack. Survival definitely takes precedence over scientific knowledge now, but the wizard doesn´t think so.
-A wild magic storm has caused a huge swarn of ovial slimes to appear near an isolated village and they are hungry and about to reach the peasants. Stop the manace and figure out what has caused the oozes to appear.

Oh yeah, I will enjoy this, I know I will.

So what about:

Courage becomes foolhardiness
Dedication has no reward
Not fit to be a mage.
Stay as you always were.
A voice calls.
Belive in justice.
Atttachemts and bonds
Worming hunger.
A dark reallity
There is a miracle.
A trapped soul
Going to paradise.
That won´t be necessary.
Throwing away your friends.
Just a husk.
Suffer in exchange.
I´m such a fool.
A holy witch.
Love me do.
Twisted orchestra
Siren´s song
Protect your beloved.
I will follow you into the dark
A soul´s last flare
Being alone is bad.
Waliking the endless maze.
Circus of horrors.
Hope wanes
A wish fulliled
Heaven´s glory
Lone guardian
You´re not alone.

I if may ask you for two things. Could you please post the imvocations you make from mine or other poeple´s suggestions, somewhere on the forum?:smallsmile:

Can I ask for a name for this species? I can't think of anything.

I called them "mermaids" in this post, but really that doesn't fit at all. You know, being actual fish with scales.

Schooling fish? A bit more description of their physical appearance would be useful in that, by the way. There's so much diversity among "fish" that it's been suggested they should be split into separate classes. Just saying "a type of fish" doesn't explain much...

Sorry, I'm not quite understanding you. I'm just hoping someone might come up with a name for a race of fish.

A description. They look something like tuna with multi-coloured glowy scales? With a 2 meter long extendable tongue... (looks like a long worm)

Emits clicks like a dolphin.

EDIT:
so... Proper description:
*Schooling Fish* are a type of intelligent fish. They have the same body plan as deep water fish, having a long oblong shape and fins above and below as well as to the sides for balance. The tail is split and fans out behind the body to nearly the height of the body itself.
The colour of their scales can be controlled by the fish itself and glows slightly when desired. Each individual scale can be controlled independently of the rest, allowing *Schooling Fish* to put on fascinating displays of colour.
Dead *Schooling Fish* have silvery scales.

The mouth is slightly larger than most fish, accomodating a 2 meter long tongue that is very much like a thin white tube ending in a single sharp tooth.

Serpentine
2011-11-13, 10:12 AM
Yes, that's more like it. Otherwise they could've looked like anything from an eel to a manta ray to a shark.
I suggested "Schooling Fish", by the way, because of the whole "schools of fish" thing - and that's the distinguishing feature of them, that they school - and schooling as in "to teach, to gain knowledge" - because when they gather in school, they gain intelligence.
"School" looks really wrong when you spell it a lot.

I would like to see a Nature based half-breed template similar to the Half-Celestial/Half-Fiend.
Rather than being an extra-planar's child, or the offspring of a dryad/nymph/etc.

Something akin to the legendary Celtic Green Man as a race or template with innate Nature based abilities.

I'd like to request a monster, essentially a big demonic goat, Size should preferably be huge, and the ability to perfom powerful charge attacks is a must. What exactly makes it so demonic is not that important, maybe supernatural/(a breath weapon, or something like that.

Preferably should be able to present a challenge to a party of three or four characters of ECL 17-19.

Also, I'd hope to have the monster by friday the 18th.

I'd like a D20 future Ithkul playable race from Master of Orion 3.

I thought it would need its symbiotic form and a sort of template to apply to which ever host it latches onto as they make races stronger faster and more resilient. A hefty charisma penalty due to their history also.

Thought taking over the host could be through grapple check dealing con damage and when con drops to zero the Ithkul is in control. Also levels would be like a genetic memory carried by the Ithkul and passed from host to host.

Any help would be appreciated as I have never created a race and may be somewhat bias in creating one.

On the scorched ground of hell there stands a terrible creature like a centaur, with dirty brown fur, large sharp-looking hooves, skin with blotches of night-black and veins of red like cooling lava. When it spots you, it rears like a wild horse, brandishes a wicked lance that still drips with fresh blood, and charges you with it, staring all the while like a maniac with its yellow eyes.

A Goat devil weights ten tons and is ten feet tall at the base of its horns and fifteen feet long from head to tail. He speaks Common and Infernal but is only rarely in the mood to talk with creatures other than fellow demons, and is mostly content with just intimidating them.

Combat
The goat devil loves to fight charging with it´s lance to take advantage o fit equine like body after first weakening their opponents with it´s dark magic. They are not good strategists, but inspire the fiends they lead with their aggressively and lust for battle.

Breath weapon (Su)
60 foot cone of fire and fetid smoke, once every 1d4 rounds (but no more than 4 times per hour) 5d6 points of fire damage. Reflex save against DC 21 halves. All creatures with a Constitution score and a sense of smell within area of breath weapon must make a Fortitude save against DC 21 every time it is used or be sickened for 1d3 rounds by the smoke´s smell. (regardless of whether or not they take damage from the breath weapon.) Bonuses tosaving throws against poisons also apply against the sickening effect. The targets gets a +3 circumstance bonus to the save against the sickening if the breath weapon is used a second time in one minute. The save DCs are Constitution based.

Conflagration (Su)
As a standard action, the Capralotarg can wreathe itself in fire, turning it´s every hair into a thin long tongue of flame. It deals 2d8 points of fire damage to everybody who touches them, grapples them or attacks them with a non-reach weapon. The intense heat causes every creature within 30 feet to take 1d8 points of nonlethal fire damage every round. Succeeding at a DC 21 Fortitude save prevents the character from taking the nonlethal damage for 3 rounds
The Capralotarg itself does not take any damage from this ability, and can suppress it at any time as a free action.

Cold vulnerability
The goat devil takes half again as much (+50%) damage from spells with the [Cold] descriptor as well as other cold-based effects, whether magical or mundane.

Electricity resistance(Ex)
The creature ignores the first 15 point of electricity damage it takes, whether magical or mundane.

Devil traits
Most devils possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
• Immunity to fire and poison.
• Resistance to acid 10 and cold 10.
• See in Darkness (Su): Some devils can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, even that created by a deeper darkness spell.
• Summon (Sp): Some devils share the ability to summon others of their kind (the success chance and type of devils summoned are noted in each monster description).
• Telepathy.


Gaze of madness (Su)
Range 30 feet , Will save against DC 20 negates. The target loses the ability to speak for one minute and only bleats instead, which causes him to suffer a 20% chance of spell failure when casting spells with a verbal component. In addition, if he if successfully affected by a fear effect with a DC of 25 of higher while under the effect of his ability, he is confused for 1d4 rounds instead. Lastly, he is treated like a goat for the purpose of the Capralotarg´s Command spell-like ability. The save DC is Charisma based.

Fire immunity (Ex)
The creature takes no damage from spells with the [Fire] descriptor or other fire based effects.

Fiendish fortitude (Ex)
A goat devil is immune to mundane diseases and poisons and has a +4 racial bonus on saving throws against those that are magical in nature or created by spells, like the druid´s Poison spell

Quadruped
The goat demon´s centaur-like body can carry up to 798 pounds as a light load, between 804 and 1356 pounds as a medium load, and between 1602 and 2400 pounds as a heavy load.
In addition, he is always treated as mounted and uses his own Strength score while using the overrun action.

Pounce (Ex)
When a Capralotarg makes a charge, it can follow up with a full attack.

See in darkness (Su)
The devil can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, even that created by a deeper darkness spell.

Spell like abilities (Caster level 15) save DCs are Charisma based (base DC 13+spell level)
At will Greater teleport self and fifty pounds of objects only, Divine favor, Doom, Endure elements , Inflict light wounds, protection from good, Command (goats, antelopes, chamoises and similarly hircine creatures only) (1-st level)
5/day- Bull´s strength,Bear´s endurance, Cat´s grace, Darkness, Delay poison, Fox´s cunning, Eagle´s splendor, Inflict moderate wounds, Owl´s wisdom. (2nd level)
4/day Fireball, Bestow curse, Blindness/deafness, Dispel magic, deeper darkness, Hold person, Magic circle against good, Magic circle against chaos. Remove blindness/deafness (3rd level)
3/day: Unholy smite (reverse of holy smite, also counters it and vice versa), Unholy blight (4th level)
2/ day Blade barrier, Insect plague, Mass inflict light wounds, Slay living, True seeing (5th level)
1 day Heal, Harm, Heroes´ feast (6th level)
1/week: Blasphemy (7th level)

Trample (Ex)
2d6+ 15 points of bludgeoning damage, Reflex save against DC 22 negates. The DC is Strength based.

This is the first time I´ve made a quite so powerful monster, so PEACH please. I´m mostly afraid of those SLAs because I was just basically pulling spells that looked good at random from the Blackguard´s list and then added some Cleric ones for good measure:smalleek: Also, just Pounce might not be good or special enough by itself.:smallsigh:

Then you see it attempt to devour a flask of alchhemist´s fire, the contents spill out and ignite, and the creature sizzles and thickens like an egg poured into a frying pan. Overcame with curiosity, you try to scoop it up a into your bag of holding , only to dicover that its pseudopodia hit with enough force to make you stagger.

An ovial slime stands abuot two and half feet tall, and weighs 40 pounds.

Combat
Like all mindless oozes, ovial slimes spend their time roaming around looking for food wihich neans anything and everything organic, and also for a way to procreate by impregating hard shelled eggs (for example of birds and dragons) with their slime, that turns the oganic tissues into more of itself.
Because of this, these jellies are non-aggressive and wil leave large most humaniodss alone unless they are hungry. However the have sense of selfpresservation and will devite most of their efforts to run when thei HP drops to 1/6 of their normal total.

Blidsight (Ex)
The body of an ovial slime is a primitve sensory organ that can ascertain objects and creatures within 60 feet.

Congeal (Ex)
Every time the ovial slime takes fire damage at least equal to 1/6 of it´s total hitpionts
(3 hp fot this particular one) it´ s jelly tissues congeals and smoothens like a fried egg , giving it a +1 natural armor bonus, a +1 bonus to Escape artist checks and a +1 circumstance bonus to grapple checks as it´s s surface becomes smoother, and more able do deflect impact and at the same time more able to adhere to rough surfaces. For every addtional sixth of total hitopits they lose these bonuses increase by +1 until the oze dies. These improvement persist for 10 minutes from the time when the last increment of the bonuses was added.

Fire vulnerablity
An Ovial ooze takes half again as much (+50%) damage from spells with the [Fire] descriptor, and other fire based effects, both mundane and magical.

Ooze traits
An ooze possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
• Mindless: No Intelligence score, and immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects).
• Blind (but have the blindsight special quality), with immunity to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight.
• Immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, polymorph, and stunning.
• Some oozes have the ability to deal acid damage to objects. In such a case, the amount of damage is equal to 10 + ½ ooze’s HD + ooze’s Con modifier per full round of contact.
• Not subject to critical hits or flanking.
• Proficient with its natural weapons only.
• Proficient with no armor.
• Oozes eat and breathe, but do not sleep.

Plot hooks
-A wizard intrested in the creation of artificial life forms intends to find out whteher onvial smiles can be made from the eggs of other than blue dranons and has sent you to a mountain where yound dragons have feast to celadrate the laying of eggs with asilme stoved away in your backpack. Survival definitely takes precedence over scientific knowledge now, but the wizard doesn´t think so.
-A wild magic storm has caused a huge swarn of ovial slimes to appear near an isolated village and they are hungry and about to reach the peasants. Stop the manace and figure out what has caused the oozes to appear.

D&D 3.5

Since I utterly suck at coming up with new classes, I need some help with these two. And there might be more, later.
First, I need a new spellcaster base class that uses arcane magic. The Arcanist. In the world I'm going to use them in, Arcanists are descendants of lesser gods and immortals that bred with mortal spellcasters. While they lack the spellcasting power of the Wizard (Actually a separate race in this world) or the Sorcerer, they become closer to their ancestors as they gain experience and undergo duress, until finally they become unto minor deities themselves. At that point, when they die they actually become protege gods to whatever god fits their aspect.
Basically, at the beginning, the player chooses one or two elements or aspects, like fire, water, war, knowledge, love, etc. and can learn and cast spells as a wizard, though not as many a day or as high level as soon. As they level up, they gain powers and spell like abilities pertaining to the two aspects they chose. Once they're fully leveled, they should be on par with wizards of the same level, though in different ways.

That covers 725, I think. Now onto 726.

I need a class that can rage and use their voice to manipulate the world. Like a cross between a barbarian and dovahkiin. Pretty simple, right?

The above mentioned Goat Demon needs severe editing as it contains numerous errors. HD didn't include bonus hp from con so hp is also wrong, speed is too slow for a huge creature, Huge size penalty modifier missing from AC and attack, creatures get iterative attacks from manufactured weapons, BAB is just +15 (BAB is never iterative). Hoof is not a slam attack and natural weapons when mixed with manufactured weapons are always secondary. It gets 126 skill ranks (max of 18 in any one skill) and then you add ability modifiers and synergy bonuses. Saves are +9 and then you add the appropriate ability modifiers. It has a Hide penalty due to size and Dex so that should be listed even if it has no ranks in that skill.

A quadruped monster with arms should be able to take the feats mounted combat, ride-by attack, spirited charge, and trample without the need for meeting the prerequisites. See for example the Centaur entry in Races of Faerûn. I don't recommend giving them as racial feats, but it doesn't make sense for a creature to need to "ride itself." It certainly cannot fall off itself or need to steer itself. The prerequisite of Ride 1 is silly under these circumstances.

Improved natural armor is a wasted feat on this monster. Improved means you have to add to its initial natural armor and you didn't do that. Just assign it +11 NA and be done with it. It should have a replacement feat.

The plural of bonus is bonuses not bonii (in Latin the plural is "bona").

Here is the corrected creature in spoiler


Goat Devil (Capralotarg)
Huge Outsider (Evil, Fire, Lawful)
Hit Dice: 15d8+60 (127 hp)
Speed: 30 ft (6 squares)
Initiative: +5 (+1 Dex +4 improved initiative)

Attack: Hoof +18 melee (2d6+5) or Huge +5 flaming burst keen unholy lance +23 melee (3d6+10 plus 1d6 fire plus 2d6 against creatures of Good alignment plus additional 2d10 fire on a successful critical hit/19-20/x3)
Full Attack: Huge +5 flaming burst keen unholy lance +23/+19/+14 melee (3d6+10 plus 1d6 fire plus +2d6 against creatures of Good alignment plus additional 2d10 fire on a successful critical hit/19-20/x3) and 2 hooves +13 melee (2d6+5) and gore +13 melee (2d6+2)
Space/Reach: 15 ft./10 ft. (30 ft. with lance)
Special Attacks: Breath Weapon, Conflagration, Gaze of Madness, Pounce, Spell-like Abilities, Trample (2d6+7)
Special Qualities: DR 10/good, devil traits, electricity resistance 15, fiendish fortitude, quadruped, spell resistance 15 (35 with scarab of protection), see in darkness , telepathy 60 ft. ( to creatures with language only)
Saves: Fort +13 (+17 against magical poisons and diseases) Ref +10, Will +7
Abilities: Str 20, Dex 12, Con 18, Int 8, Wis 10, Cha 16
Skills: Bluff +21, Concentration +13, Heal +9, Hide -7 (-8 size penalty), Intimidate +18, Listen +18, Spot +18, Sense motive +4, Knowledge (religion) +8, Knowledge (planes) +8, Perform (pan pipes ) +13, Profession (winemaker) +4
Feats: Improved initiative, mounted combat, power attack, ride-by attack, spirited charge, trample
Environment: Any lawful- and evil aligned plane
Organization: Solitary, deputy (1 goat demon plus 1-3 chain devils or 1-6 bearded devils) or council (1-8 goat demons plus 2d4 erinyes or 2d12 imps, or 2-6 chain devils or 1-12 bearded devils)
Challenge Rating: 18
Treasure: double gold; standard gems; 15% half art; 45% standard magical items, plus +5 flaming burst keen unholy, huge-sized lance and (3d6+10 piercing,+2d6 against creatures of Good alignment, +2d10 fire on a successful critical hit)19-20/x3, masterwork instrument (Pan pipes) plus pipes of pain or pipes of sounding (50% chance of one) and scarab of protection (+20 SR if held for one round, 1d12-3 charges of protection against negative energy left)
Alignment: Always lawful evil
Advancement: 15-19 HD (Huge) 20-38 HD (Gargantuan)
Level Adjustment: —

Edit: Trample does hoof damage (normally slam) plus 1 and 1/2 Str bonus. The save should half the damage not negate it. I also corrected the damage on its attacks. Hoof uses full Str bonus and Gore is 1/2 Str bonus. There is no attack that uses double Str bonus. The melee attack size has a -2 size penalty (it is not he +8 size modifier used by Grapple).

C 711

The above ooze creature needs some editing. Mindless creatures don't get feats in addition to not getting skills. Giving it two bonus feats is probably not appropriate either.

I'm just starting up a new campaign, and was wondering if anyone would be able to homebrew up a Thrall of Kostchtchie Prestige Class. I would like it in a similar vein as the Thralls in the Book of Vile Darkness. I would prefer to have a 10 level PrC with relatively simple prerequisites. The abilities I'm looking for are an expansion on the Barbarian's abilities, along with some cold-themed traits like immunity to cold, maybe even the cold sub-type.

If anyone is able to do this, thanks a lot.

while a full class workup is a bit much; I can provide some useful seeds for building such a class;
The simplest way to build such a thing would be to use the cleric domain lists from 3.5 or pathfinder.
Have the arcanist pick 2 at start; and he gains the powers of the list; and the ability to 1/day spell-like use the spells from each domain that he's a high enough level to cast (ie each level's domain spell is a 1/day ability once they're high enough level to cast them); and they auto learn those spells in case they want to use their regular slots to cast them too.
If you use the domain lists from pathfinder, they have a few more extra powers per domain; those might fit your needs better than the 3.5 domain powers.
I'm sure you can work out a suitable spells/day progression yourself; just use some 0's so that they can use the domain spell-likes a level or two before they can cast spells of that level (barring int bonuses to spells/day pumping it up)

all other base numbers are easy to copy frmo existing casters.

No problem, but as you can guess, I have a tendency to aggravate my DMs.

Ugh hate that trick. It makes sandstone. A titan can't break free from sandstone?

Anyway, C729 / H729-2
The standard pricing is 40 gp (2000/50 = 40) * effective-bonus * effective-bonus. So for +1 flaming (1d6 fire) it's 160 gp. For +1 flaming burst (1d6 fire, plus 2d8 more on a crit) it's 360 gp.

Now to metagame this a bit: These arrows suck except at high levels or except when saved for major foes like BBEGs; normally you get an even nicer bow first. So I'll discount them to balance for low level play, make them alchemical like you seem to want, and prevent (ab)use at high levels. I'll say 75 gp for +1d6 fire damage, and this may be multiplied by a crit. These alchemical arrows may not be enchanted; even when fired from a magic bow they don't deal extra magical damage. They also set fire to easily ignitable things like dry brush, tinder, curtains, etc., but not most other objects and creatures.

Some reason? You make it sound like I said no, but didn't explain anything. :smallamused:

I thought I explained why, see, I'm a wizard, but the person shooting the arrows is a ranger. Sure, I could put a rune on the arrow, but then I would have to waste an action to watch when the arrow is about to hit, to make the rune go off. Not to mention I'm not even sure how you accurately portray something like that in terms of skill checks/ability rolls.

Explosive runes seems to be set off when read, I didn't think just calling out the key word would do it. Would it?

I thought a TNT equal or gunpowder usage was available in D&D. I just didn't see anything that put the two together.

Souled Flesh Golem
Unlike a regular flesh golem a souled flesh golem contains the willing or unwilling soul of a creature from the material plane rather than an earth elemental soul. It is genderless and created with the spell create souled flesh golem (below). Its type is monstrous humanoid.

A souled flesh golem gains +2 to strength and -2 dexterity. It has darkvision 60' and low light vision. It has a +2 to saving throws against mind affecting effects, poison, sleep effects, paralysis, stunning, disease, death effects, and necromancy effects, and an additional +2 to all fortitude saves except those that also affect objects. It is, however, alive (aliiiive), and it eats, drinks, sleeps, thinks and breaths.

Spell Resistance
It has spell resistance equal to 5 + its hit dice. A magical attack that deals cold or fire damage slows him instead (as the slow spell), with no save nor SR. A magical attack that deals electricity damage instead removes the slow condition and heals 1 HP for every 3 damage it would deal, with no save or SR. It gains any excess as temporary HP which last for up to 1 minute. This temporary HP does not stack with other jolts nor other sources of temporary HP; instead use the highest of any sources. Positive energy healing such as cure spells have no effect on souled flesh golems, though inflict spells work normally (except for spell resistance and the save bonus vs. necromancy, see above). Nonmagical sources of energy damage deal damage normally, even electricity.


Create Souled Flesh Golem
Transmutation
Level: Sor/Wiz 6

This spell takes the soul of a deceased creature and places it into an amalgam of body parts. The creature's new race becomes a souled flesh golem. The creature must be imbued with a soul during stormy weather, or using another very large source of electricity. This spell may also be forcefully cast on a trapped soul, for example from a trap the soul spell. Otherwise this spell works as reincarnate, except as indicated.

Focus
An alchemist's lab.

Material Components
Laboratory supplies costing 1,000 gp. Body parts from at least 4 different corpses. The original creature may still be raised from the dead with the remainder of the body, though in the case of a raise dead spell body parts will be missing. Assembling the body requires a DC 13 craft (leatherworking) check or a DC 13 heal check.

R 738: I'm actually looking for two "worthy" opponents. I need an opponent for a 5 rogue/1fighter, who will become an invisible blade soon, and also a worthy opponent for a level 6 ranger, who has taken the two weapon path, to become a Master of Two Weapons prestige class (homebrew dandwiki site). Both will be 1 vs 1, the invisible blade opponent can be almost anything I would think, but the ranger's opponent would need to wield two weapons.

I really want to put them through the ringer. Not kill them, but make them exhaust all they have in that one fight. :smallbiggrin: Any suggestions?

@R 738
Fighter 6 for the ranger. Two weapon fighting, shield focus, weapon focus large shield. Improved Shield Bash, Improved TWF. Dodge, Improved Toughness. Weapon Specialization (Large Shield).

Equips one wooden large shield, one steel large shield. With or without spikes. If enchanted use weapon enhancements such as flaming. Leave the bonus to AC: +1, etc.

Cleric/Monk
Versatile Unarmed Combat
Leap of the heavens
Deity with war domain and unarmed preferred weapon for weapon focus.
robes, while clothing can still have an armor bonus, but lets use bracers anyway.
Ring of shield for a permanent +2 shield bonus (force effect) to AC. Costs 8k.
Alertness.
Weapon Finesse
Improved Grapple
Cleric Spell: See invisibility, if you can afford it, permanent, if not, potions. Race Halfling, Strength 12 (cost 6), Dex 17 (cost 8), Con 14 (Cost 6), Wisdom 16 (cost 8), Int 12 (Cost 4, skills: Jump, Spot, Listen), Charisma 8 (no cost)

I have had it said, on many occasions, that any storyline of a paladin falling can be done with any LG (or for that matter Good) character and just be handled organically.

As the paladin is a disappointing class once this organic falling is done, I would like to ask:

R739

Could someone create a trait or other similar system by which any character can have a code similar to a paladin's code of conduct and gain small benefits from said code?

Basically, if the Code of Conduct from the Paladin was a Trait, what benefits would come in exchange? Perhaps some small benefit from Paladin (divine grace, smite evil, etc.)?

Thanks in advance

Feat: Holy Vows [exalted]

You have taken certain vows to uphold moral principles, and are rewarded by the powers of goodness. All clerics of good-aligned deities will intuitively recognize this and start out friendly to you. You gain additional benefits depending on which vows you take.

If you break a vow, you lose the benefits of that vow and take a stacking -1 morale penalty to all attacks, skill checks and saves until you receive atonement. If you cease to be good, you lose all benefits of this feat until you receive atonement.

When you take this feat, you may take 1-3 of the vows listed. You may take this feat multiple times -- each time taking 1-3 additional vows.

This feat can replace Sacred Vow as a prerequisite.

{table]Vow|Benefit
help those in need (unless they will use that help for evil)|lay on hands, remove disease 1/week and divine health
protect the innocent|divine grace
punish evildoers|smite evil (ceil(level/5) times/day)
tell the truth|detect evil at will
respect legitimate authority|immunity to fear
respect individual liberty|immunity to compulsion
turn aside from all goals that are not the pursuit of goodness|special mount
never harm a thinking being who does not personally deserve it, and never more than is deserved (special: if you violate this oath but make restitution and receive forgiveness, that counts as an atonement spell)|turn undead
support all good-aligned churches|Either: gain paladin spellcasting based on your hit dice and add spellcraft and concentration to your class skill list regardless of class or add the paladin spell list to your class spell list, the palading spells/day for your caster level to your spells/day, and (if applicable) 2 spells known for spell levels 1-4 starting 3 levels after you become able to cast that level spells[/table]

Candle Demon
A human-shaped figure with sharp teeth and glowing yellow eyes dripping tear-like wax.

Candle demons arise when a lesser demon begins to evolve into a babau. Their excess fat feeds into their eyes and burns away over the course of about one month during the transformation. They are often found traveling to a new location in expectation of their new found power.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Transformation (Su)
A candle demon that takes half or more of his HP (21) in fire damage (after subtracting resistance) becomes a babau. His abilities and appearance change accordingly, however his HP total remains unchanged. A candle demon may not heal fire damage, even after the transformation, until the 1 month normally required for the transformation has elapsed. A desperate candle demon may intentionally target himself with a flaming sphere, especially if he has already taken some fire damage.

Flaming Sphere (SLA)
A candle demon fires flaming spheres out of his eyes and controls them mentally, as with the spell. The glow in an eye is gone once a sphere is launched from it. A candle demon that has not yet released his flaming spheres has eyes that glow as bright as candle light, giving him a -4 to stealth checks.

COMBAT
A candle demon likes to throw 1 or 2 flaming spheres until engaged, then he fights with his long spear while redirecting flaming spheres.

Lesser Genie
A lesser genie looks similar to a human save for the ocassional gleam of gold in their eye (5% chance each round). Typically they arise when a genie has been bound on the material plane too long and his power has faded. However, with practice, it may be awoken again. Lesser genies have the following abilities:

Outsider(native) type. They are not affected by "person" spells but they may be raised from the dead normally. They are affected by planar binding spells, even if they merely walk into a properly prepared circle. Once bound in a circle they may be bottled and from then on are treated as if still within the circle and may be bound normally until the task is complete.
A lesser genie gains the following spell like abilities 1/day as he progresses in hit dice. Caster level is equal to his hit dice. Save DCs are charisma based.
{table]HD|Spell Like Ability
1|Create wine (as create water, but common wine is made instead)
3|Enlarge Person (except works on self too)
5|Invisibility (self only)
7|Fly

11|Major Creation
13|Plane Shift (willing targets to elemental, material or astral planes only)
15|Limited Wish
17|Incendiary Cloud
19|Wish
[/table]
The lesser genie must expend the normal experience point cost on any limited wish or wish creating a permanent effect (magic item, ability score increase, permanent illusion, etc.)

R 741 Anyone feel up to making a template, capable of turning a non-intelligent undead (Such as a skeleton or zombie) into an intelligent one, that has LA (AKA turns it into a playable creature)?
Say, an infusion of magic bolstered the soul attacked to the rotting corpse (or animated skeleton), letting it make decisions on it's own again, and bringing a magically enhanced capability to learn, but didn't bring back memories, making it so whoever enchanted it had to raise it up like a child, or something, and after 3 or 5 or so years it's as mentally capable as a first level human fighter of 20 years of age.

So, a human skeleton + this template + 1 level of wizard would be technically as challenging to face as a human wizard 1, but might have some LA, maybe 1 or 2.

I understand if it's too much.

@V: Oh. Thankyou. I'm going to have to look that up. It retains the Undead type, but gains an INT score?

Eternal Champion

Prerequisites: Strike of Righteous Vitality, complete obsession with a cause

21st: Awareness of The Cause

You are always aware of where your cause is in need, regardless of distance, even on other planes. This knowledge does not distract you or drive you mad (well, no madder than you already are). You don't know all the details, but where and how severe.

24th: Presence of The Cause

Wherever the struggle continues, there you are. You may teleport or plane shift at will to a place where your help is needed in fighting for The Cause.

27th: Assistance to The Cause

Whenever someone else fighting for The Cause calls out for help, you may offer yours. If they allow it, you may possess their body for up to five minutes. You use their physical abilities but the better of their and your skills, feats, maneuvers, or class abilities. You may only possess one person at a time this way. It does not effect your ability to act in your own body simultaneously.

30th: Widespread Assistance to The Cause

By placing your physical body into a deep trance, you may possess up to 9 willing champions as in Assistance to The Cause. No two possessees may be within 10 miles of eachother.

Immortality:

When your physical body gives out, you may remain in the trance, always aware of the need, flitting from champion to champion, giving aid where needed, until The Cause is victorious at last.

Duskbow (Duskblade ACF)

Armored Mage (Ex): Replace "heavy shield" with "buckler".

Precise Shot: At 2nd level the duskbow gains precise shot as a bonus feat. He need not meet its prerequisites. This replaces combat casting.

Arcane Channeling (Su): This ability lets you cast a touch spell through your weapon with a ranged attack instead of a melee attack.

Duskbow Spell List
Remove Blade of Blood, add Arrow of Blood: Targets a projectile or thrown weapon instead. You must decide whether or not to sacrifice the hit points when the projectile is fired or weapon thrown rather than when it hits.
Remove Stretch Weapon, add Distant Weapon: Doubles the ranged increment of a ranged weapon instead. This stacks with far shot but not the distant magic weapon property.
Remove Crown of Might, add Crown of Agility: Increases dexterity instead.
Remove Toxic Weapon, add Toxic Arrow: Targets a single projectile or thrown weapon instead. The spell is discharged even if the weapon misses.
Add flame arrow as a level 3 spell. Remove vampiric touch.
Clarification: A single arcane channeled chill touch may affect multiple fired projectiles as long as they are launched from the same weapon. Misses do expend uses of the spell.

You mean like... a Genasi, or other Plane Touched? Or... describe 'far realms' please. Do you mean Outer Planes, or... as a 'realm' is a kingdom, something more along the lines of... a subrace of human?

Do you have preferences for size, capabilities, outlook, appearance, abilities? I can make you an awesome LA 0 race of awesomely bland if you would like, gains a bunch of useless abilities and that's it. Like... the ability to cast any 0th level spells 3 times a day. This isn't a feat, or a skill.

I can do it though, if anyone else would like to, I'll step back and off.

For starters... I would give it a 25% crit immunity (Like light fortification).
A -2 Charisma (Horrid Appearance).

A -2 Constitution (incorrect anatomy).

A simple gaze attack causing the recipient to be shaken while in its presence. with a dc of... say... 14+charisma mod.

Perhaps an additional limb, or eye... I usually run this kind of thing as a customizable race with different variable physical characteristics, since no two should ever be exactly alike.

So... roll 1d6...
1: Additional Eye: (roll 1d2) Dark and Lowlight Vision, or eye beam (Roll against beholder eye based attacks).
2: Additional Limbs: roll 1d3, 1 is legs (Always in pairs), 2 is arms(Roll 1d2), 3 is combination of the two (Roll 1d4).
3: Additional sense: roll 1d6, tremor 30, blindsense 20, blindsight 10.
4: Maladjusted Vocals: sonic attack dealing 1d4 sonic, fort 14+Charisma or deaf for 1d3 rounds.
5: Eye Stalks: roll 1d4 for number of eye stalks, each stalk deals 1d3 damage of one of the following: fire, cold, lightning.
6: Natural Weapons: roll 1d4: tentacle, claws, bite, or slam.

You get the jist.

Nytingulfur

Nytingulfurs are the incarnation of exploiting others' compassion. Their physical shape (when not using their change shape ability) is like large wolves, except for solid red eyes which glow faintly and bat-like wings which can fold so closely to their body as to be nearly invisible.

They fight only as a last resort, preferring to use magic and trickery to gain advantages from any they meet. Their favorite game is to find a pair of existing friends, then impersonate each to eachother and ask for expensive favors until the friendship is over.

If forced to fight, they favor hit-and-run tactics, counting on their fast healing to give them a long term advantage. If there is more than one present, they all pick a single target to focus on and only attack others if convenient or the first is effectively disabled. They first target anyone who can heal, and then whoever looks frailest.

trip A Nytingulfur that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+10 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the winter wolf.

Disguise Mind When detect good/evil/law/chaos, detect thoughts, or discern lies are used on a Nytingulfur, the result is whatever the Nytingulfur wishes it to be. The caster is not aware that the spell has failed. Note that this, combined with the detect thoughts sla means that any two Nytingulfurs can effectively communicate telepathically.

Change Shape A Nytingulfur can take on the shape of whomever the person its dealing with most trusts, or a generic form of any humanoid race.

Allochthon
Mortals have such limited concepts of space, time, and causality. They are born, they move forward through time, they take actions which lead to effects, they sire offspring to continue their genetic legacy, and they die. Such curiosity that they might all function in such a way! It is not so for Zakain'hhai, whose existence human language strains to conform, although one might refer to it as a 'creature' from the Far Realms. It is, by mortal perspective, yet to be - it has birthed its children into a vast lineage backward through what the denizens of the planes perceive as time, so that they may one day unbirth themselves into their eventual ancestor.

For much of the history of the Prime, Allochthons, the children of Zakain'hhai, will be of mostly human blood. They come into existence in the elderly years of their life, grow younger as time passes, and eventually unbirth themselves into nothingness. Once all the Allochthons of a generation have been unbirthed, their parents, consisting of a number of mortals and Allochthons, will come into being. Eventually, as the bloodline thickens, it will lead to the direct scions of the Old One himself. And then, as the world comes to its end, Zakain'hhai will be born into the world from his children.

But that is a long way off yet (perhaps), and for now the Allochthons are merely thought to be humans with a certain otherworldly presence and odd way of thinking.

Size: Medium
Type: Outsider (Native)
Speed: 30ft
+2 Intelligence, +2 Charisma, -4 Wisdom - Allochthons have minds that reach far beyond what lies before them. This can leave them somewhat lacking in common sense and situational awareness, but allows them to grasp new concepts readily. While their unnatural mien may be a little off-putting, it is nonetheless captivating and, potentially, terrifying.

Unnatural Aging (Ex) - Allochthons age differently than other mortals. They come into existence when their children cease to be, at the Venerable age category. Once ~35 years have passed, they progress into the Old category, until they reach ~53 years of age, and become Middle Aged. At 70, they have no ability score modifiers based upon age, right up until they become children (unfit for adventuring) and are unborn.

Alien Mind (Ex) - Allochthons simply have different wiring than what power drawn from this multiverse is used to working with. They gain a +2 bonus on all Will saves against fear, emotion based, or mind-affecting spells and abilities. In addition, all those whose magic touches the Allochthons mind (any spell that forces the Allochthon to make a Will save) brush against a deeper madness than any being of the planes is equipped to handle. Assuming the caster is not from the Far Realms themselves, they must make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 character level + greater of Intelligence or Charisma modifier) or be shaken. If, for some reason, they cannot be shaken, or their fear cannot be upgraded any additional steps (they are at 'panicked' already), then they instead take (greater of Intelligence or Charisma modifier) points of damage as their body is eroded by the otherworldly touch.

Mad Genius (Ex) - Allochthons gain a pool of bonus points that refresh after every period of sufficient rest, but no more often than every 24 hours, which may hold a number of points equal to their character level. By taking a swift action to think about the current situation, they may draw up to (greater of Intelligence or Charisma modifier) points from this pool, distributing these as +1 bonuses (which stack) on any rolls they choose until the beginning of their next turn (even though it is unrolled, they may also choose to boost Armor Class). However, every roll that gains a bonus from the Allochthon's Mad Genius ability is touched by their madness. They move and act in completely ludicrous or incomprehensible ways. A bonus on an Intimidate check might involve the Allochthon referencing people and events that they have no memory of, nor could have possibly witnessed. A bonus on a Knowledge (Arcana) check could dredge up knowledge the Allochthon has never learned. A bonus on an attack roll could mean swinging randomly at a point of space that one's foe simply happened to leap toward after the swing had begun.

Favored Class - Warlock, Factotum

R 707: I need a Homebrew Dragon progression for a mount/companion for a player in my group. Said Dragon should be good aligned, Big, or able to tweak it easy to make it big, and easy enough to insert into an on going game for the DM. And should progress on par with a fairly optimized Melee build that isn't focused on mounted combat, but might want to shift gears to that style once in awhile, and may change build course to encourage it.

Thanks. =)

What levels does it need to be viable at? Red and gold dragons are already available big for characters of level 17-18, but obviously that's a bit high. Yet the same dragon is CR 7, so maybe if we limit its equipment and ability scores below a normal cohort it could be fair for a level 9 or so character.

H1.I want a cannibal mage prestige class so I can kill and eat any one or thing that cast spells or has spell like ability’s and by doing this learn them my self.I think its important to get a bight attack and the ability to digest odd things like undead flesh, and descent save so I can actually live to kill the other guy.may sacrifice advancement in previous spell progression for class features.

Right now the party is sixth lvl, reasonably-to-highly optimized depending on class. (New Player had lots of help with doing a "Hulk Smash" style Barbarian/Warblade. Right now were expecting her to dip Exotic weapons master next level after I showed her the trick for Double str to damage, and the Dm gave just about everyone weapons focus cause he thinks it's a flavor feat. Player is still debating options beyond that point, though a dip of cleric for Mobility and Unarmed Swordsage for having a couple of emergency counters always ready and the flavor of being really big and throwing stuff around have been considered.) Player's base size is Large, and I (Party Wizard and playing at a more passive optimization level so that the DM actually has a chance to challenge the party.) have been buffing her up to Hugh for Combat were situation allows.


So, yeah, she's a fairly new player, and has become very taken with the idea of a dragon mount since she LOVES Dragons to begin with. So were trying to find something worth while to give her to cater too that.

Dragon Rider
Prerequisites: Character level 12th, Mounted Combat, Ride 1 rank, must make peaceful contact with a dragon.

Benefit: This feat lets the character attract a dragon willing to bear her as a rider. The character bears no penalties for riding an unusual mount, though she requires a saddle as normal. To determine the maximum CR of the dragon, use the leadership feat rules and subtract 1 from the cohort level, so that the absolute limit is 3 below the character's level. As the dragon gains experience (see leadership rules) she may advance in age, time allowing, or by character levels. Sorcerer levels stack with a dragon's existing caster levels, if any. The dragon has feats appropriate for her HD. The dragon must be large size or larger to bear a medium rider, or medium size or larger to bear a small rider.

Unlike a leadership cohort the dragon is equipped from standard treasure for its CR rather than character wealth. The remaining 2/3 of her triple standard treasure is in coins, gems or similar and kept somewhere safe in a horde; she will not part with it. Unlike a leadership cohort she does not have higher than normal ability scores either. The dragon cannot benefit from barding. Your DM might allow certain magic items to fit on its body, whether from the dragon's own wealth or lent by the riding character. The dragon will demand a half share of party treasure and use 2/3 of this treasure to increase her horde.

Special: A fighter may select Dragon Rider as one of her fighter bonus feats.

Other Notes:
See Mounted Combat (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/combat/specialAttacks.htm#mountedCombat) rules, Ride (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/skills/ride.htm) rules and flight (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/movement.htm#tacticalAerialMovement) rules.
The ride by attack feat is might be good when flying. The dragon could instead provoke an attack of opportunity in melee and circle around to make a second attack, given a 10' deep x 20' wide area behind the target. Or the dragon might take the hover feat to make things a lot easier. Or the dragon might take fly by attack if the rider takes ride by attack. I'd strongly suggest hover given the places that adventurers go.
Riding the dragon on the ground though is a lot less complicated. Move up and attack as normal. Whether flying or on the ground, it's a DC 10 ride check for the mount to also attack at the same time.
In a higher power gaming group or to throw the new player a bone, a prerequisite of character level 9th and max CR = leadership cohort level (instead of level - 1) might be ok. You might let the new player fix her ability scores if she dumped charisma.

Nytingulfur

Nytingulfurs are the incarnation of exploiting others' compassion. Their physical shape (when not using their change shape ability) is like large wolves, except for solid red eyes which glow faintly and bat-like wings which can fold so closely to their body as to be nearly invisible.

They fight only as a last resort, preferring to use magic and trickery to gain advantages from any they meet. Their favorite game is to find a pair of existing friends, then impersonate each to eachother and ask for expensive favors until the friendship is over.

If forced to fight, they favor hit-and-run tactics, counting on their fast healing to give them a long term advantage. If there is more than one present, they all pick a single target to focus on and only attack others if convenient or the first is effectively disabled. They first target anyone who can heal, and then whoever looks frailest.

trip A Nytingulfur that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+10 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the winter wolf.

Disguise Mind When detect good/evil/law/chaos, detect thoughts, or discern lies are used on a Nytingulfur, the result is whatever the Nytingulfur wishes it to be. The caster is not aware that the spell has failed. Note that this, combined with the detect thoughts sla means that any two Nytingulfurs can effectively communicate telepathically.

Change Shape A Nytingulfur can take on the shape of whomever the person its dealing with most trusts, or a generic form of any humanoid race.


That's bloody awesome! Do you know of a way to defeat it that wouldn't seem out of place in a MLP game? Some way for good to dramatically triumph over evil? Some way to defeat this awesome creature of your awesomely twisted mind? Seriously! Let's see Fluttershy and Rarity deal with this!:smallwink:

As fiiting their name, darkings are similar to living blotches of ink that can display patterns images and colors they have seen on the surface of their body and are used as covert spies by mages and the nobility, or more mundanely as a living archive of information. However they have even more mysterious ability that allows them to evade natural predators and others who would attack them by projecting a false ,,shadow“ that is actually a partially physical object in whose shadow they hide themselves.

A Darking is about two feet tall and two feet wide,, though it´s body is viscous and fliud like that of all oozes and can change its dimesions easily. It is unusually light, weighing about 6 pounds. Darking speak Common and Draconic and usualy speak tersely and curtly to relay the most imoport informative they want to say quickly. As fitting for their role as spies they refuse to speak when there are unknown people or those they don´t trust in he vicinity. Obvinously Darlings hate light of any kind and will do everything in their power to remain in shadows at all times. If they cannot flee they position theselves so they are not directly illuminated and assume their incoporeal shadow-form,.

Combat
With their extraordinarty aptitude for stealth, darking prefer subterfuge and mobility over direct cofrontation in nearly all cases. Even wen corered they willtry to escape using using diplomacy and illusions rather than violence. The only reason why darkings might use brute force is to distract a guard who protects the object of their investigation, while operating in a group. Some might assult the watchman to keep his attention occupied and give the others an opening to reach a secured area.

Alternate form (Su)
As a standard action, the darking can assume the form of a flat, dark two- dimensional shape, as if they became their own shadow , which is now interchageable with the darking´s body as It turns incorporeal and gains the apporpriate subtype. The creature can stay incorporeal for any lenght of time and reverting back to corporeal form takes a standard action. If the shadowy body is illumuinated, the Darking must succed at a Will save each round it remains in the area or revert to its corporeal form. The save DC is 15 for natural, mundane daylight or (10+ spell level+ key abillity modifier) for spells with the [light] descriptor. Returning to corporeal form takes a free action.

Blidsight (Ex)
The whole body of a darking is a primitive sensory organ that can ascertian objects and creatures within 60 feet.

Ooze traits
An ooze possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
• Mindless: No Intelligence score, and immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects).
• Blind (but have the blindsight special quality), with immunity to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight.
• Immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, polymorph, and stunning.
• Some oozes have the ability to deal acid damage to objects. In such a case, the amount of damage is equal to 10 + ½ ooze’s HD + ooze’s Con modifier per full round of contact.
• Not subject to critical hits or flanking.
• Proficient with its natural weapons only.
• Proficient with no armor.
• Oozes eat and breathe, but do not sleep.

Shadow within a shadow(Su)
As a standard action, the darking can channel stuff of the Shadow plane to create a partialy material projection that is simililar to the effect of a Major image spell. The creature most ofthen uses this ability to project an image of itself into the distance to create the illusion of a double and distract pursuers with it or to create a diversion to turn icorporeal in the projection´s shadow. Another use is to create a spherical blob shape that has streaks of black and white or other colors on the surface. As a standard action the darking can make those patterns shift and swirl and observing them causes any creature with an Inteligence score to be fascinated for as long as they keep watching the sphere and are not in obvious danger. Succeeding at a DC 16 Will save negates the fascination effect Maintaining the projection takes as little concentration as walking so it remains active while the creatures is moving around but it disappears if the Darking gets involved in combat, unless it succeeds at a Concentration check while fighting defensively. Succeding at a DC 18 Will save lets the target avoid the effect. The save DC is Charisma-based. This is a mind-affecting, pattern and shadow effect .

Spell-like abilities (Caster level 6th, base DC 13+ spell level)
3/day- Darkness
1/day- deeper Darkness

Undectabilty ( Ex)
Divination magic cast to detect the darking as well as other effects that locate or spy on creatures and might show him incidentally (such as a scrying sensor) fail or do not show him, as appropriate, unless the caster succeds at a caster level check against DC equal to (10+ ½ the darking´s HD). Failing to scry because of this abiility, grants the creature immunity against being scryed by that particular caster for 24 hours as if the darking had succeded at it´s saving throw. ( Other limitations might apply depending on the individual spell used) Creatures with a divine rank or with a cosmic essence or level of awareness (at the DM´s discretion) are not impeded by this ability.

Does it look any good? Is the undectablity abillity balanced?

I would like to see a Nature based half-breed template similar to the Half-Celestial/Half-Fiend.
Rather than being an extra-planar's child, or the offspring of a dryad/nymph/etc.

Something akin to the legendary Celtic Green Man as a race or template with innate Nature based abilities.

I hope this is specific enough.

Looks pretty good. I'm not sure how much of that is from the books, as I've only read one of the books they appear in (the 4th Wild Magic book). You put an "l" instead of an "i" in its name at the top of the spoiler, incidentally.

R752: I came up with the following idea, but have no idea how to implement it mechanics-wise.

Prenumbral Maw

The Prenumbral Maw, as it is called, is one of the most rare and unusual sights upon the Material Plane, and for those who know what it is, amongst the most dreaded.

It appears as a mobile swirling black vortex. While it fluctuates in size like the shore of the ocean, on average the vortex is about the size of a humanoid, though larger one have been reported. One account even describes a cluster of them coming together and combining to form a much greater Maw, though the veracity of this report is unknown. It is believed amongst the learned arcanists that the Prenumbral Maws as mortals see them are living planar rifts, leading to an extradimensional space. Whether they are individual entities or all part of the same, much larger being is unknown; if the statement of their ability to merge is true, it would suggest the latter.

When a Maw is close to a humanoid or other suitable target, large black tentacles emerge from it, grabbing the intended victim. The similarity of these tentacles to the one produced by the eponymous spell has lead some to believe the Maw was created originally by a disasterous incident involving a botched casting of Black Tentacles. Others believe the reverse is true: the spell Black Tentacles somehow invokes and harnesses the power behind the Maws. Regardless, once the Maw has grabbed a victim, it begins to forcefully drag it into its swirling center. As a victim is pulled in, they become hysterical, dropping everything and losing their senses, only able to struggle to claw their way out. Once the Maw has swallowed a victim, it collapses in on itself and disappears. Sometimes, the victim reappears at the same spot a short time later. They describe their experience like an unremembered nightmare; horrified beyond belief but unable to recall any details. Other times, the victim is simply never seen again.

Combatting the Maw is a most difficult task. As a living planar rift, it is almost impossible to destroy, though spells such as Dimensional Anchor cause it significant distress. It is only really vulnerable when it extends its tentacles; these can be wounded like any creature. If it is sifficiently hurt, it will close up without claiming a victim.

To be honest, I don't exactly understand the difference b/w aberrations and outsiders, as they tend to get blurry at times, and I'm not sure where this would fall. So whichever would make the most sense to you.

As for power, I'm guessing the Medium should be about CR 10, and with the different sizes going up and down, respectively. If you could, having many different sizes, like Elementals, would be most excellent.

However, I just wanted a suggestion for one of the powers that a Large carbon elemental could use. Maybe it could somehow gain a bonus to attack or damage (or both) rolls if it were on fire (coal?) We're going to meet it in an abandoned mine.

My party is a stereotypical group of 4 with a ranger, wizard, fighter, cleric arrangement, if that helps.
Any difficulty level welcome.

And wouldn't it be awesome if it could somehow compress itself into diamond?! :smallbiggrin:

Ok, so now it's my turn to DM in my IRL game.

The last session the party defeated an intelligent giant spider in it's layer, and then decided they wanted to collect webbing and take it to an armor smith to see if he could harden and strengthen it into a super light armor material, arguing the massive strength of spider silk.

I caved but told them it wold take a fair amount of time just to get the silk ready to make into armor, which they very happily accepted. I've got until perhaps the end of this up coming session on Saturday to some up with stats for the material.


I am ok with it being something that would have been insanely valuable. I don't mind buffing a mostly T4-T3 party with one T1 (Cleric.) who has no idea how to use a T1 (Was the players first session last session. ) with one set of valuable items, I'll just be more stingy with the WLB after this for a bit.




Thanks!

As a material...
give it lightness, like Mithril.

Give it... DR (small number)/magic
If you could make that overcome by fire instead of magic, that would be good, but officially that can't happen.

If you want it to be from the sticky kind of spiderweb, make it as follows:
If the wearer of this armor is attacked with a melee weapon (not natural weapons or unarmed strikes), and the attacker does not overcome the wearer's flat-footed AC, the attacker must make a Strength check that beats the armor's AC bonus, or be disarmed. If disarmed, the weapon sticks to the armor, and can be removed only with the same Strength check. Each failed Strength check that comes within 5 decreases the DC for future attempts to remove the same weapon by 1.

It appears as a mobile swirling black vortex. While it fluctuates in size like the shore of the ocean, on average the vortex is about the size of a humanoid, though larger one have been reported. It is believed amongst the learned arcanists that the Prenumbral Maws as mortals see them are living planar rifts, leading to an extradimensional space. Whether they are individual entities or all part of the same, much larger being is unknown.

Combat
When a Maw is close to a humanoid or other suitable target, large black tentacles emerge from it, grabbing the intended victim. Once the Maw has grabbed a victim, it begins to forcefully drag it into its swirling center.

Draw Within (Su): At the end of each turn if the Maw is currently grappling a creature, they must make a strength check (DC 16)or be moved 5ft closer to the possession of the Maw.

If this would cause the creature to enter the square of the Maw, the two must make opposing grapple checks. If the creature fails the check, they are pulled into the rift. After succeeding in its goal the Maw collapses upon itself, taking the creature with it.

The DM must then Roll d20. If a twenty is rolled the creature is lost forever (Excepting epic quests). If a number other than twenty is rolled the creature reappears in the exact spot the maw swallowed him a number of days later equal to the number rolled.

Improved Grab (Ex): If a Penumbral Maw hits with its Slam attack it deals normal and wisdom damage as above, and attempts a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of oportunity. No initial touch attack is required.

Maddening Touch (Su): On a successful hit with its slam attack the target is also dealt 1d4-2 wisdom damage.
In addition at the end of a round any creature that is being grappled by the Maw must make a Will Save (DC 18) or be confused (as the spell).

Multi-Grapple (Ex): A Penumbral Maw can grapple one creature per tendril, instead of only one. Also it can only grapple if someone is within range of 5ft of the end of one of its tendrils.

Rift Body (Ex): A Penumbral Maw is practically indestructible and amazingly hard to locate while it is within its rift. If it is in its normal state it can hide without any concealment or cover, in addition to being immune to all forms of damage.
As a full round action a Maw can Manifest. While manifesting its ability to hide without cover or concealment is lost, and its Tendril ability automatically activates without needing to use a move action.

But as a side-effect of existing within the rift, if it is under the effect of dimensional anchor or dimensional lock spell it is immediately Panicked, no save.

Tendrils (Ex): By spending a move action or when it manifests the Penumbral Maw sends out three tendrils through the rift.
The creature may select three foot squares within 20ft. The Tendril counts as existing in each square and a 5ft wide line which connects it to the Maw, for the purposes of attacking the Maw.
The Maw on the other hand can only attack creatures within 5ft of the three squares selected.

If a tendril is attacked it deals damage to the Penumbral Maw, bypassing its regular immunity to damage.

R 755 I don't know if this is specifically a homebrew, so much as it is taking something that already exists and tweaking it to make it into something different.

In Kobold Quarterly, issue 6, there was an article about crab divination (the telling of the future via the use of crabs). The idea fascinated me and they provided stats for the crabs in question, but there was one issue. The crab's stats had it as an animal and I'd prefer for it to be a vermin.

If anybody is interested in helping me out, here are the stats for the creature as a guide:

Garrotter Crab
Tiny Animal
Hit Dice: 1d8+2 (6 hit points)
Initiative: +0.
Speed: 20 feet (4 squares), swim 20 feet (4 squares).
Armour Class: 17 (+2 size, +1 Dexterity, +4 natural), touch 13, flat-footed 16.
Base Attack/Grapple: +0/-2.
Attack: Barbed pincer +0 melee (1d6-2).
Full Attack: Barbed pincer +0 melee (1d6-2) and pincer -5 (1d2-2).
Space/Reach: 2 1/2 feet by 0 feet.
Special Attacks: Constrict 1d3, improved grab.
Special Qualities: Low-light vision.
Saves: Fortitude +4, Reflex +3, Will +0.
Abilities: Strength 6, Dexterity 12, Constitution 14, Intelligence 1, Wisdom 10, Charisma 2.
Skills: Climb +1, Hide +14, Spot +2, Swim +1.
Feats: Weapon Focus .
[B]Environment: Aquatic coastal.
Organisation: Solitary, pair, pack (3-8) or pod (9-20).
Challenge Rating: 1/2.
Treasure: None.
Alignment: Always neutral.
Advancement: 2-4 Hit Dice (Medium-sized), 5-6 Hit Dice (Large).
Level Adjustment: -

Constrict (Ex): A garrotter crab deals 1d3 points of damage with a successful grapple check against a creature the same size or smaller. Because it seizes its victim by the neck, a creature in the garotter crab's grasp cannot speak or cast spells with verbal components.

Improved Grab (Ex): If a garrotter crab hits a creature the same size or smaller with a barbed pincer attack, it can start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict.

Garotter crabs gain a +8 racial bonus on grapple checks (included in the statblock above)

Skills: Garrotter crabs recieve a +8 racial bonus on Hide checks while in an environment that contains river rocks and recieve a +2 racial bonus on Climb and Swim checks.

I have a bard, and I had kind of a weird idea. Would it be possible, and how much would it cost, for him to obtain or make a 6-string guitar with the following spells imbued on strings made from magic:

Red String: Dancing Lights
Orange String: Flare
Yellow String: Shocking Grasp w/5 ft. range.
Green String: Acid Splash
Blue String: Ray of Frost
Purple String: Mage Hand

If possible, I'd like to get prices for 3/day on the spells and at-will. The guitar would do nothing else but provide an instrument and alternate means of amplification, as well as a cool way to fit playing Santana into our gaming sessions. :smallcool:

It should cost 3700 gp for its Market Price for the three per day. If you want I could stat up the whole thing.

At will version should be 6100 gp.

Note: The base item for this was a Masterwork Musical instrument, so it grants +2 on all performance checks with it, in addition to its magical effects.


To make the 3/day version you would have to pay 1850 in gp.

To make the at-will version you would have to pay 3050 in gp.

C & H 755

Actually making them vermin isn't going to change their stats much except make them a little weaker. Swim speeds aren't given in squares because of vertical movement (same for burrow, climb, and fly speeds).

I also own a copy of KQ 6, so I went to the source. It actually looks like there is a mistake in the original stat block. The modifier on the crab is +2 racial modifier on Swim, but because it has a Swim speed the modifier should be +8. The original author forgot about this.


A creature with a swim speed can move through water at its swim speed without making Swim checks. It has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. The creature can always can choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. The creature can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

Type change to Vermin. , HD and BAB aren't changed and skills and feat stay the same as long as it still has Int 1 and you don't make them mindless. Vermin don't have good Reflex saves so reduce it by 2 and change low-light vision to darkvision. That's about it.

Death Weasels were carefully bred (perhaps with a touch of magic) by a mad druid seeking to terrify settlers of what had been a wilderness. He succeeded, but once the settlers were gone the weasels bred out of control and devastated the local ecosystem, exterminating many native species. He was working on a predator to control the Death Weasels when a saner druid slew him. Now the Death Weasel is a part of a restabilized ecosystem, and the druids ensure it does not spread elsewhere.

Attach
A Death Weasel that hits with its bite attack may choose to hold on. An attached Death Weasel can be ripped off with a melee touch attack followed by a dc 25 strength check.

Blood Drain
If a Death Weasel is already attached, it may drain the victims blood causing 1d6 con damage.

Recovery
For every point of con a Death Weasel inflicts (either with its bite attack or its Blood Drain special attack), a Death Weasel heals two points of damage. A Death Weasel cannot heal beyond its starting point.

Mindless Hunger
A Death Weasel's hunger overrides all other thoughts. A Weasel is treated as mindless when it is advantageous to it.

Skills
Death Weasels have a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Balance and Climb checks. They use their Dexterity modifier for Climb checks. A Death Weasel can always choose to take 10 on a Climb check, even if rushed or threatened.

I have a request for a homebrew spell. The 2nd Edition book Tome of Magic features the Wand of Misplaced Objects. This items rearranges all the target's gear: a magic bracelet is now around your ankle, your sword ends up in your backpack, etc. In that most noble of 2nd Edition traditions "The DM is encouraged to be devious. The more items, the greater the trouble".

My attempts to make a 3.5 version of the spell have all failed. Increasing Armor Check penalties seems too weak, transferring your spell components to your socks seems too strong. I've fiddled with speed reduction, skill penalties, and armor penalties, but my results are never satisfactory.

I would like it to be a Wizard/Sorcerer spell of level 2 or 3. It should be usable at range. It should have no effect on creatures without gear. Other than that, I'm stumped. I hope you guys can help me out.

If someone were to make a reasonably-balanced (LA +0 equivalent, or fairly close) playable version of the leshy (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/plants/leshy-template) for Pathfinder, I would be very appreciative.

So. This evening I had the basic concept for a prestige class I'd love to play, and would make it myself had I the talent to make it balanced. I'll give all the specifications I can, and let whoever wants to take it from there.

The Meta-Mage
Prerequisites:
Doesn't matter, approximately 6th level.

Info:
By taking the first level of this prestige class, your character realizes that he is actually living in a game. He does what anyone would do, and immediately seeks to abuse it as much as possible. His class features represent gaining new knowledge to allow him to abuse the fact that he is living in a game.
This would be a 10 level prestige class.
I ask for your help because I wanted this to end up balanced, and not the awful jumble it'll be if I try and make it work myself. Any takers?

Leshies are nature spirits bound to small plant-like bodies. They are usually created by senior druids, but sometimes form spontaneously in areas of high magic. Leshies usually have a vaguely humanoid pattern to them, with two arm-like clusters of branches and some head-like branches on top where their eyes are.

Leshy traits:
Small -- +1 AC and attack, +4 hide
Abilities: -2 str, +2 dex, +2 con, -2 int, -2 cha
Damage reduction: 5/- because their bodies are made of wood
Photosynthesis: a Leshy who spends the day outdoors need not eat, though he still must drink normally
Skills: Leshies have a +16 bonus to disguising themselves as ordinary plants. Since their branches aren't really hands, they take a -4 penalty on Disable Device, Open Lock, and Sleight of Hand checks.
Automatic Languages: Sylvan. Bonus Languages: Common, Druidic.
Plant Type (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/typesSubtypes.htm#plantType)
Favored Class: ranger


Leshy Feats (only Leshies can take these):

Extra Branches
You grow extra branches equivalent to one more arm. You make take this feat more than once, each time creating a new "arm". Leshies who do not take this feat have two "arm"s.

Thorns
Gain primary natural weapons that do 1d6 piercing damage. The number of weapons is equal to the number of your "arm"s. Anyone who grapples you takes 1d6 piercing damage (no save).

Bark
Gain natural armor +2. You may take this feat multiple times. Each time gain an additional +2 as your bark becomes thicker.

Gourd
You grow a gourd in which you may conceal a diminutive object. Objects inside the gourd are immune to all divinitive magic.

Creepers
You grow long hairy tendrils good for attaching to things. Gain a climb speed of 5 ft, a +8 racial bonus on climb checks, the ability to take 10 on climb checks when threatened, and the ability to base climb checks on dex rather than strength.

The wand's effects would be from several spells not just one. That's why you aren't getting a satisfactory spell. It seems that it would not be a wand at all in 3.x. A wand contains a single spell of 4th level or lower. This would be a rod in 3.x

here is the original text as best as I can find:

Wand of Misplaced Objects: This wand emits a multitude of golden orbs that rush toward a target creature. The orbs surround the victim and swirl around him wildly for 1 round. During this time the victim is confused and can take no action.

At the end of the round, the orbs vanish and the victim is free to act. He discovers, however, that all objects on his person have been moved. Some items are inconveniently located, while others are nowhere to be seen. A warrior might find his magical ring on one of his toes, his sword in his pants, his gold pieces in the sheath of his sword, and his breastplate on his head. The more possessions a victim owns, the more confused the situation becomes. The DM is encouraged to be devious.

Because of the chaotic placement of items, the victim suffers several penalties. Movement is reduced by half. Armor class of characters wearing armor is reduced by 2, since pieces are not worn properly. Attack rolls made by the victim are made at a -2 penalty. These penalties are eliminated if the victim devotes 2-5 rounds (1d4+1) to rearranging his gear.

A character requiring an item carried in a backpack, pouch, pocket, or other container must spend 2-12 (2d6) rounds searching for the item. This penalty is canceled if 3 turns are spent unpacking and repacking all gear.

The DM must define the locations of objects any time a character reaches for them or if they impair motion or sight. When deciding locations of objects, the DM should state the obvious effects of impaired sight and movement immediately, such as boots worn on hands or a cloak over the face.

Items held within a bag of holding, Heward's handy haversack, or other magical containers are unaffected. However, the containers themselves are subject to relocation.

The wand uses one charge per attack. It may be recharged.

This is my first homebrew request, so perhaps I didn't quite get the point of the thread. My request for a spell has multiple reasons, most of which have to do with the way the game is played at my table.

As I stated, I have not succeeded in converting this thing to 3rd Edition. 3.5 has Armor Check penalties and Arcane Spell Failure, 2E does not (in fact, casting arcane spells in armor is impossible). 1d4+1 rounds repacking becomes a problem of a different magnitude, because a round in 2E is ten times as long as a round in 3.5. I failed, so I turned to the forum.

If it is impossible to create this as spell, OK. I failed, I can accept that other people will have the same result. But "It would be a Rod" is not quite the help I was looking for. Could you perhaps elaborate a bit? It's the effect, the result of getting hit with this magic that is the crunch of my problem, and I would very much like to read your thoughts (or anyone else's for that matter) on this matter.

In any case, thanks for looking into it.

It is impossible to recreate a 2nd edition wand of misplaced objects with just one spell, which is why it cannot be a wand. It can however, be recreated as a rod.

Here are the 3.5 definitions of a wand and a rod:

Definition of a wand: A wand is a thin baton that contains a single spell of 4th level or lower. Each wand has 50 charges when created, and each charge expended allows the user to use the wand’s spell one time. A wand that runs out of charges is just a stick.

A typical wand is 6 inches to 12 inches long and about ¼ inch thick, and often weighs no more than 1 ounce. Most wands are wood, but some are bone. A rare few are metal, glass, or even ceramic, but these are quite exotic. Occasionally, a wand has a gem or some device at its tip, and most are decorated with carvings or runes. A typical wand has AC 7, 5 hit points, hardness 5, and a break DC of 16.

Definition of a rod:Rods are scepter-like devices that have unique magical powers and do not usually have charges. Anyone can use a rod. Rods weigh approximately 5 pounds. They range from 2 feet to 3 feet long and are usually made of iron or some other metal. (Many, as noted in their descriptions, can function as light maces or clubs due to their sturdy construction.) These sturdy items have AC 9, 10 hit points, hardness 10, and a break DC of 27.

Rod of Misplaced Objects

Activating a rod of misplaced objects is a standard action. The rod emits a multitude of golden orbs that rush toward a target creature. The orbs surround the victim and swirl around him wildly for 1 round. During this time the victim is confused and can take no action.

At the end of the round, the orbs vanish and the victim is free to act. He discovers, however, that all objects on his person have been moved. Some items are inconveniently located, while others are nowhere to be seen. A warrior might find his magical ring on one of his toes, his sword in his pants, his gold pieces in the sheath of his sword, and his breastplate on his head. The more possessions a victim owns, the more confused the situation becomes. The DM is encouraged to be devious.

Because of the chaotic placement of items, the victim suffers several penalties. Movement is reduced by half. Armor class of characters wearing armor is reduced by 2, since pieces are not worn properly. Attack rolls made by the victim are made at a -2 penalty. These penalties are eliminated if the victim devotes 2-5 rounds (1d4+1) to rearranging his gear.

A character requiring an item carried in a backpack, pouch, pocket, or other container must spend 2-12 (2d6) rounds searching for the item. This penalty is canceled if 3 turns are spent unpacking and repacking all gear.

The DM must define the locations of objects any time a character reaches for them or if they impair motion or sight. When deciding locations of objects, the DM should state the obvious effects of impaired sight and movement immediately, such as boots worn on hands or a cloak over the face.

Items held within a bag of holding, Heward's handy haversack, or other magical containers are unaffected. However, the containers themselves are subject to relocation.

Moderate Necromancy CL: 8th Prerequisites: Craft rod, confusion, lesser, bestow curse; Price: 11,000 gp

P.S. to respond to your last statements: Perhaps I do not understand why you were having so much trouble with this item in the first place. It is not that difficult to convert items from 2nd edition to 3rd edition. There was a Conversion Manual published by WotC that helps a lot. the following may help you when converting items from 2nd edition to 3rd edition:

"If a staff or wand has a unique power, it is now a rod."

"If the old casting time is less than 1 round, the spell’s new casting time is 1 action. If the old casting time is 1 round or more, the casting time is unchanged."

I hope this helps.

"If the old casting time is less than 1 round, the spell’s new casting time is 1 action. If the old casting time is 1 round or more, the casting time is unchanged."

I hope this helps.

He was actually asking for a homebrew spell. That is why he said it being a rod isn't helpful. He wasn't aiming for conversion for a magic item.

I actually think it wouldn't be too much trouble to adapt the spell description that Debihuman located and the Rod of Misplaced Things that Milo v3 just designed into a homebrew spell, right?

Something like this might work:



Mischievous Misplacement
Conjuration (Teleportation)

Level: Sor/Wiz 3, Bard 3
Component: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One creature wearing at least two pieces of equipment
Duration: One round
Saving Throw: Reflex negates
Spell Resistance: No

Malevolent green globes issue forth, surrounding and enveloping your victim. You watch, amused, as the globes evaporate, leaving your victim befuddled and clearly missing several important pieces of equipment.

The subject of this spell is surrounded by a mass of golden orbs, which swarm around him and obscure his vision for one round, rendering him confused for one round and preventing him from taking any action.

At the end of the round, the orbs vanish into the aether, leaving the victim free to act. However, held and worn items have been chaotically redistributed around his body. This imposes a -2 penalty to Armor Class and Reflex saves made by any target wearing light or heavier armor. This penalty can be removed by devoting 1d4 rounds removing and/or re-donning the armor.

If the target is wearing boots, a cloak, or similarly heavy pieces of clothing, there is a 75% chance that that these articles are misplaced, impairing the target's sight (such as a cloak covering his face) or movement (such as a hat worn on his feet). This imposes a -4 penalty to Dexterity checks and renders the target blinded unless the target spends 1 round discarding the offending items.

Any target who wishes to retrieve an item carried in a backpack, pouch, pocket, or other container must make a Search check (DC 10 + caster level + your Intelligence modifier) in order to find an item. This penalty can be removed by devoting 1d6 rounds unpacking and repacking all gear.

Items held within a bag of holding, Heward's Handy Haversack, or other magical containers are unaffected, but the containers themselves may be relocated by the spell.

Material Component: One banana peel

I think this might be my first "homebrew" spell, so someone else here can probably punch it up if they have time.

H 758.

Spells should only have one descriptor. Causing confusion is Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]. While the rod would do that with lesser confusion, I'm not convinced that a misplaced objects spell needs to contain that.

Causing a victim's clothes to magically rearrange could easily be done with bestow curse and no additional spell would be necessary, but where is the fun in that? So a new spell is in order (not that it is worth the spell slot if you ask me).

Furthermore, I'm unconvinced that than teleportation rather than transmutation should be the basis of the spell, but that's nit-picky and we could argue that portion for far too long.

I'm reconsidering that now that I've looked over a bunch of transmutation spells. As a transportation spell, it is really weak.You aren't even transporting the clothes and equipment over a distance just rearranging them on the victim's body.

Taking your lead, here is an alternate version of the spell at a slightly lower power. I think I've seen a banana peel for another homebrewed spell and since that reminds me of the gag of someone falling, it didn't seem to fit with motif of this spell. It's been edited to death now and I think I'm done with it.

Here is the final edited version of the spell. It should be correct now.

Misplaced Objects
Conjuration (Teleportation)
Level: Bard 1, Sor/Wiz 2
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft. /2 levels)
Target: Clothes and Equipment worn by one creature
Duration: 1 round
Saving Throw: Reflex negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Golden orbs rush toward a target creature . The orbs surround the victim and swirl around him wildly for 1 round.

At the end of the round, the orbs vanish. The victim discovers that all objects on his person have been moved and some items are inconveniently located.

Because of the chaotic placement of items, the victim suffers several penalties:


Movement is reduced by half.
Armor class of characters wearing armor is reduced by 2, since pieces are not worn properly.
Attack rolls made by the victim are made at a -2 penalty.


These penalties are eliminated if the victim devotes 2-5 rounds (1d4+1) to rearranging his clothing and gear.

Removing misplaced armor takes half the amount of time as removing normal armor (see table: donning armor). It takes the normal amount of time to don armor. 1

A character requiring an item carried in a backpack, pouch, pocket, or other container must spend 2-12 (2d6) rounds searching for the item. This penalty is canceled if 3 minutes are spent unpacking and repacking all gear.

Items held within a bag of holding, Heward's handy haversack, or other magical containers are unaffected. However, the containers themselves are subject to relocation.

Material Component: a pair of mismatched socks

So. This evening I had the basic concept for a prestige class I'd love to play, and would make it myself had I the talent to make it balanced. I'll give all the specifications I can, and let whoever wants to take it from there.

The Meta-Mage
Prerequisites:
Doesn't matter, approximately 6th level.

Info:
By taking the first level of this prestige class, your character realizes that he is actually living in a game. He does what anyone would do, and immediately seeks to abuse it as much as possible. His class features represent gaining new knowledge to allow him to abuse the fact that he is living in a game.

I ask for your help because I wanted this to end up balanced, and not the awful jumble it'll be if I try and make it work myself. Any takers?

This is REQUEST 760 please edit your text to show your request number.

C 760

Would this be a 5 or 10 level Prestige class?

Thanks! That looks a lot better written, and I feel like it captures the essence of the request much better than mine did. Did you mean to leave off the confusion effect? (If so, I agree -- it's probably not needed and would probably bump the spell level up too high).

Thanks! That looks a lot better written, and I feel like it captures the essence of the request much better than mine did. Did you mean to leave off the confusion effect? (If so, I agree -- it's probably not needed and would probably bump the spell level up too high).

Regarding the H758 Misplaced Objects spell: I purposefully left the confusion out. Trying to retrofit a 2nd edition item is doable but it usually isn't an an exact match.

Under the rules in 3rd edition, you could have a wand of misplaced objects (without the confusion) or a rod of misplaced objects (with the confusion) but you cannot have a wand with both the confusion and the misplaced objects as that would violate the wand having more than one spell on it.

So if one spell is confusion, lesser, the only thing left to retrofit was the misplaced magic spell. I know the original poster wanted a spell that completely mimicked the item, but that is just not possible. I did as much as was possible without breaking the rules of the game.

I really owe you a big favor because I had no idea where to start with the spell and you had a really good idea. Thank you for letting me play with it. The more I play with things, the more I realize just how flexible 3.5 is and how much I really enjoy it.

An excellent spell

Wow. That is just what I wanted. I especially like the use of the Search skill. How to find the item you need gave me such headaches, and you solved it in a simple and elegant way. Nail - hammer - wham.

Another version of my request

You made me an item, absorbed the ideas of Steward, and combined it into yet another version of my request. I am humbled by the sheer amount of time and effort you (and Steward!) have put in. I regret that I have but one internet to give out. You will have to share it, I guess, along with my eternal gratitude. Thanks!

PS About the text of the original item from the Tome of Magic: I do indeed have that book. But when dealing with copyrighted material, I prefer to err on the side of caution, so I decided not to post it. Perhaps I was a bit too cautious.

I've got players in a D&D 3.5 based system in a desert environment, and a decent subset of the population of the civilization they're about to dive into contains a buzzard/vulture-like race. They're mostly humanoid, and flight is not strictly necessary but might not be a bad idea. I also think they should be likely to carry diseases, and/or have abilities relating to what vultures are good at: finding dead things and stalking things that are about to die. I'd like them to be CR 5 at maximum and preferably less, because lots of them have class levels (quite a few of them in this civilization are clerics or shadepriests (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=239765) of the local death god, with a few petty assassins and the like as well). Any ideas for abilities and things?

Try 5d10 for 27 hp. The hp is high but the low AC and damage makes it CR 1.

H 762 (please number your requests, for example "R 762" in bold)
I briefly looked up vultures and was interested to see that they use acidic projectile vomit as a weapon in the wild. I also add some dead/dying tracking things as requested. The flight was gimped to keep LA and CR down: It's not good enough to maneuver indoors and the low speed makes it hard to do a flyby attack every round.

Buzzardfolk
Medium Monstrous Humanoid
2d8+1 (10 hp)
Initiative +1
Speed 30 ft., Fly 40 ft. (poor)
AC 15 (+2 natural, +3 studded leather), touch 10, FF 15
BAB/Grapple +2/+2
Attack: 2 Claws +2 (1d4) and Bite -3 (1d4) or Projectile Vomit +3 touch 2d4 acid (see text)
Special Qualities: Darkvision 60', Deathwatch (Su), Scent
Saves: Fort +1, Ref +4, Will +3
Abilties: Str 10, Dex 13, Con 13, Int 10, Wis 10, Cha 9
Skills: Survival +5, Hide +6
Feats: Track (B), Flyby Attack
CR 2
Level Adjustment: +1
Alignment: Often Neutral Evil ("Often" = 12%-49%)

Like vultures buzzardfolk are carnivores that like to feed on dead and dying flesh. They are often caniving and opportunistic, seeking any advantage they can take over the weak and helpless. Buzzardfolk loathe open combat, often fleeing from it. They prefer scouting and ambushes, especially against foes who have been weakened by another foe or hazard. In dungeons they like to build traps and watch them patiently. Buzzardfolk fly at low speed but may do so for long periods of time before becoming fatigued, as if walking.

The Buzzardfolk shown here has flyby attack to circle around and engage foes from a distance with his projectile vomit. He flies in a circle with a minimum diameter of 20 feet meaning he can only cover at most 2/3 of this circle each round if he attacks. He must move at least 20 feet each round to avoid stalling. See the flight (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/movement.htm#tacticalAerialMovement) rules for more details.

Projectile Vomit (Ex)
A buzzardfolk's stomach acid is especially corrossive to give him immunity against diseased food. He also uses it as a weapon to defend himself. The vomit does 2d4 acid damage and has a range of 30'. Unlike other natural attacks a buzzardfolk with rapid shot, a high BAB or another source of multiple attacks may fire vomit multiple times per round. He may likewise benefit from abilities that grant extra damage.

Deathwatch (Su)
Buzzardfolk have deathwatch as a continuously active ability, as the spell.

Scent (Ex)
Buzzardfolk have the Scent (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/specialAbilities.htm#scent) ability and may even use it to track through air without penalty. Furthermore once they have successfully tracked a creature they may use their Deathwatch ability on it while tracking it as long as it is within 2 miles.

Buzzardfolk Characters:
+2 dex, +2 con, -2 cha
+2 natural armor
Favored Class: Rogue (or change to match your setting)
Plus all the above abilities. Flyby Attack may be swapped for a different level 1 feat.

Feats:
Improved Projectile Vomit
Requirements: 6 HD (including class levels)
A buzzardfolk may take this feat to increase his projectile vomit damage to 3d4.

Greater Projectile Vomit
Requirements: 11 HD (including class levels), Improved Projectile Vomit
A buzzardfolk may take this feat to increase his projectile vomit damage to 4d4.

Superb Projectile Vomit
Requirements: 16 HD (including class levels), Improved Projectile Vomit, Greater Projectile Vomit
A buzzardfolk may take this feat to increase his projectile vomit damage to 5d4.

Other Comments: Many buzzardfolk get the feat to apply enlarge spell to a supernatural ability to give their deathwatch greater range.

I don't think I've ever seen the phrase, "Superb Projectile Vomit" before, so... wow! :smallbiggrin:

I would like to request roughly a CR 2-3, mindless (TN) 'positive energy' undead*; preferably something based on the idea of losing your identity or memories. If it could have a single neat trick it can pull off, to make it memorable. It should be said, there will be quite a few of these things lurking about the villa's basement. A group of two or three should be about (again, roughly) CR 6 or 7, but without class levels, so maybe let the signature move get better with more of them. They aren't meant to be the main focus of the session (or even get loose), but knowing PC's...
Aiming for something that was an 'experiment' for a local BBG or one of his minions but they are Mad Psiontists, not Crazy wizards. *Technically they aren't dead but that should be hard to tell and mostly irrelevant. They've had a part of their {mind/souls} removed and this should be what 'survived', which as near as I can tell in the cosmology, makes them True Neutral PE undead.
Also the (local) setting leans toward early romance period france, (minus firearms) if that helps.
Finally, it should be corporeal and not immediatly recognisable as a (former) individual. At least, not for the first encounter. Also: Not Zombies. Yes, even the original ones.

I was going by what was printed in the SRD, which contains a rule that grants Constructs bonus hit points based on their size (to replace their lack of a Con score, I guess). I'm not familiar with the rules to know if that has been errata'd out though, so I could be wrong.

An invocation that creates a globe of water that hovers in place around the invoker. Does not need to grant the invoker the ability to actually breathe in said water. The lower the level the better; least is preferred.

Ideally it would grant all the effects of being in the water, including a penalty on firing out of the water for the invoker and for firing into the water for everyone outside, as well as making fire spells hard to cast and ineffective, and making melee combat between the invoker and enemies who enter the globe more difficult. I'm just not sure where that falls on the power scale, how wide it could be while still counting as a "least", or if even having a 5 ft. radius would make it too powerful for least. If it wouldn't up the level, it would also be nice to include a "succeed on a strength check when the globe is formed or be pushed outside the sphere by the rushing water" effect.

A dark shape steps out of the gloom, resembling a bent-backed humanoid with a thick trunklike body and twisted, spindly limbs. When its empty white eyes set upon you, the creature hesitates, almost as if it recognizes you, before lumbering forward in your direction.

Combat:

Facelift (Su):
Forgotten Faces are mindless wretches, consumed with a dark thirst for the identities stolen from them by the cruel process that turned them into the monstrosities that they are; they satisfy this lust by literally lifting the faces of foes.

When a Forgotten Face inflicts damage with its bite attack, its opponent must make a DC 14 Fortitude save (10 + 1/2 its total HD + Cha modifier) or suffer 1 point of Charisma drain. For each point of Charisma drain inflicted, the Forgotten Face accrues certain benefits. Its face takes on the likeness of its victim, granting it a +10 bonus to Disguise checks meant to impersonate that victim. It also gains, as a bonus feat or special ability, one feat belonging to its victim even if it does not meet the prerequisites; as long as the Forgotten Face retains a 'stolen' feat, the victim cannot derive the benefit from the feat. Finally, it gains one point of Charisma for every two points of Charisma drained. Stolen Charisma points return to their original 'owners' after one hour, and every benefit derived from the use of this ability is eliminated at the same time. Remove curse, Remove disease, heal, or restoration can be used to reverse any damage caused by this ability, and the spells death ward or magic circle can protect

Frightful presence (Ex)
The presence alone of a Forgotten Face is preternaturally unnerving. Whenever a Forgotten Face moves or attacks, those within sight of it must make a DC 12 Will save (10 + 1/2 its total HD + Cha modifier) or be shaken for 1d6 rounds. A creature that succeeds on this saving throw is immune to the frightful presence of all Forgotten Faces for 24 hours.

Undead traits:
Forgotten Faces share some traits of undead, despite being living beings. They are immune to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, and patterns) and are not subject to critical hits, nonlethal damage, ability drain, or energy drain.

Blindsight (Ex):
Functions at a range of 60 feet.

I'm hoping for a feat or feat chain that allows a spellcaster to cast from wands (or scrolls & wands & Staves) as if casting from her/his own spell slots. The intention is to have personal feats/ability scores/class features/etc affect the spell that is cast.

METAMAGIC SPELL TRIGGER
You can apply metamagic feats you know to spell effects from magic items you activate with a spell trigger.

Prerequisites: Any metamagic feat, Use Magic Device 15 ranks or Spellcraft 15 ranks.

Benefit: You can apply any one metamagic feat you know to a spell generated by a spell trigger item (such as a wand or staff) that you activate. You expend one extra charge for each change in spell level a metamagic feat normally requires.

If the metamagic feat's level adjustment would normally increase the slot of the chosen spell's level above 9th, you can't apply the metamagic effect to the spell. For example, you can't apply Quicken Spell to an antimagic field generated by a staff (since that would take a 10th-level spell slot to cast). If sufficient charges aren't available in the item to power the application of metamagic feats (or if the item doesn't use charges), the item fails to activate and no charges are used, but the action used to activate the item is wasted.

I'm not sure about Scrolls. I'll keep looking.

Thanks for finding this, but I'm not actually interested in the Metamagic feats. I'd be more interested in including things like Feat:Ashbound, or giving the spells DCs based on the wand-user's stats, or the spell effects playing off the wand-user's caster level.

However, I do like the idea of any such feat having UMD and/or Spellcraft as prereqs.

And taking up extra charges...perhaps for each feat/stat/ability that is applied?

One of its maneuvers is to let you cast from a scroll or wand as if it were one of your own spells if you've cast the same spell on your own in the last round.

What do you think would be a fair way to change this to lasting the entire encounter, or just to make it a permanent thing?

I'm hoping for a feat or feat chain that allows a spellcaster to cast from wands (or scrolls & wands & Staves) as if casting from her/his own spell slots. The intention is to have personal feats/ability scores/class features/etc affect the spell that is cast.

C766

Material Mage
Prerequisite: Any item creation feat, caster level 6 or higher
Benefit: When casting a spell from a wand, scroll, or staff, you may use your own ability scores when determining the spell save DC.

Perhaps making it a prerequisite for another feat?

Also, I should've said "Complete Mage, page 46".

Here's the feat's text, if you don't have CM:

RESIDUAL MAGIC [TACTICAL]
You can use the lingering energy from a spell you cast to boost the effect of a later spell.

Prerequisites: Spellcraft 12 ranks, any metamagic feat.

Benefit: The Residual Magic feat allows the use of two tactical maneuvers.

Enduring Potency: If you cast a spell from your daily allotment of spells, then cast the same spell from a scroll or wand in the next round, you can treat the second casting as if it had come from your daily allotment of spells for the purpose of caster level, save DC, and any other effect of the spell.

For example, if Hennet the 10th-level sorcerer casts magic missile, then activates a wand of magic missile (caster level 5th) in the next round, he can treat the wand's magic missile as if he had cast it (giving him a greater range, number of missiles, and so forth).

Lingering Metamagic: If you cast a spell affected by one or more metamagic feats, and then cast the same spell in the next round, you can apply any one of the metamagic effects from the first casting to the second casting, but without any change to the spell's level. The second spell doesn't count as being affected by a metamagic feat for the purpose of this benefit (that is, it doesn't entitle you to apply the metamagic feat to a spell you might cast in the following round). Only spells you cast using your own metamagic feats (as opposed to metamagic effects from magic items) allow this option to function.

For example, if Hennet uses a 5th-level slot to cast an empowered lightning bolt, in the next round he can use a 3rd-level slot to cast another empowered lightning bolt. If the first spell was a silent empowered lightning bolt, he could apply the effect of either Silent Spell or Empower Spell to the second casting of lightning bolt, but not both.

I meant 5d10 to get something near 25, if that's what you want. Constructs don't have a constitution so adding any number is a bit strange.

C 761 Skull Puppet Constructs have bonus hit points based on size. A Medium Construct gets 20 bonus hit points.

The stat block by Steward looks pretty good; there are a few missteps. Hit points are 47 not 48. 5d10 = 5x5.5= 27.5 and you round down. 27+20=47.

CR is closer to 1/2 than to 2.


C 762 Buzzardfolk's stat block has some missteps there too.

You forgot to list only the primary attack in the attack line and the attack line you do have should be noted as the Full Attack line.

Attack: Claw + 2 melee (1d4)
Full Attack: 2 Claws +2 melee (1d4) and bite -3 melee (1d4) or Projectile Vomit +3 ranged touch (2d4 acid)

Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft. [This is missing from the stat block]

Projectile Vomit (Ex): A buzzardfolk's stomach acid is especially corrosive to give him immunity against diseased food. He also uses it as a weapon to defend himself. The vomit does 2d4 points of acid damage and has a range of 30 feet.

[S] A buzardfolk with rapid shot, a high BAB or another source of multiple attacks may fire vomit multiple times per round. He may likewise benefit from abilities that grant extra damage.

Natural weapons are not affected by higher BAB. He can do more damage if he increases in size but should not get multiple attacks unless he suddenly gains another stomach and mouth from which to vomit from. This part should be stricken from the text.

Spell-like abilities are listed under Spell-like ability not by spell name (see Deathwatch ability) also what is the Caster Level for this? It is listed as a Supernatural ability in the Stat block (or it should be SLA) as listed in the text? If it matches the spell, it has a 30 foot range. Otherwise, you need to reword this.

It is either:

Spell-Like Ability: At will — deathwatch. Caster Level is equal to Hit Dice.

Or it is:

Deathwatch (Su): Buzzardfolk have deathwatch as a continuously active ability with a range of 500 feet. [See my notes on this below].


Buzzardfolk have the Scent ability and may even use it to track through air without penalty. Furthermore once they have successfully tracked a creature they may use their deathwatch ability on it regardless of range.

Range is way out there. Can it use this across planar travel? You seem to indicate that it can. Usually deathwatch is within 30 feet as per the spell. While I can appreciate that 30 feet is probably too short, unlimited distances are just too easy to abuse. I recommend you drop the range to 500 feet. You'll probably never even need that much.

Here is a corrected stat block for the Buzzardfolk with deathwatch as a SLA. These really could use a full description. Are they bald? How much do they weigh? How long do they live?


Buzzardfolk
Medium Monstrous Humanoid
Hit Dice: 2d8+1 (10 hp)
Initiative: +1
Speed: 30 ft., Fly 40 ft. (poor)
Armor Class: 16 (+1 Dex, +2 natural, +3 studded leather), Touch 11, Flat-footed 15
BAB/Grapple: +2/+2
Attack: Claw +2 melee (1d4)
Full Attack: 2 Claws +2 melee (1d4) and Bite -3 melee (1d4) or Projectile Vomit +3 ranged touch (2d4 acid)
Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft.
Special Attacks: Projectile Vomit
Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft., scent, spell-like ability
Saves: Fort +1, Ref +4, Will +3
Abilities: Str 10, Dex 13, Con 13, Int 10, Wis 10, Cha 9
Skills: Survival +5, Hide +6
Feats: Track (B), Flyby Attack
Environment: Any land
Organization: Solitary or wake (2-10)
Challenge Rating: 2
Treasure: Standard
Alignment: Often neutral evil
Advancement: By Class (favored Class: Rogue)
Level Adjustment: +1


Like vultures buzzardfolk are carnivores that like to feed on dead and dying flesh. They are often conniving and opportunistic, seeking any advantage they can take over the weak and helpless. Buzzardfolk loathe open combat, often fleeing from it.

They prefer scouting and ambushes, especially against foes who have been weakened by another foe or hazard. In dungeons they like to build traps and watch them patiently. Buzzardfolk fly at low speed but may do so for long periods of time before becoming fatigued, as if walking.

The buzzardfolk shown here has flyby attack to circle around and engage foes from a distance with his projectile vomit. He flies in a circle with a minimum diameter of 20 feet meaning he can only cover at most 2/3 of this circle each round if he attacks. He must move at least 20 feet each round to avoid stalling. See the flight rules for more details.

Projectile Vomit (Ex): A buzzardfolk's stomach acid is especially corrosive to give him immunity against diseased food. He also uses it as a weapon to defend himself. The vomit does 2d4 points of acid damage and has a range of 30 feet.

Scent (Ex): Buzzardfolk have the Scent ability and may even use it to track through air without penalty. Furthermore, once they have successfully tracked a creature, they may use their deathwatch ability on it.

Spell-Like Ability: At will — deathwatch. Caster Level is equal to Hit Dice.

H766

I put one together, based on all the others suggested:

Cast Through the Soul
The wand-user channels the energy of the spell through themselves before releasing it.
req: Craft Wand, UMD or Spellcraft 9, know the spell being cast.
Benefit: When the character triggers a wand holding a spell they know, they may choose to have it act as if they cast it from their own spell slots, being affected in all ways that a spell they cast from their own spell slots would be affected, including using their casting stats, their feats, any abilities they have, etc.
Special: Due to the need for the magic to first push through the wand-user before expressing a full spell, this uses 2 charges for each triggering of the wand, not including metamagic or other factors which might increase the charge cost.
Normal: The effects of a spell cast from a wand are set by the creator of the wand. A single trigger of a wand uses a single charge.

Basically: Craft Wand + UMD/Spellcraft 9 ranks + knowing the spell + this feat + 2 charges = cast as if from one's own spell slots.

What do you think?

Buzzardfolk stuff

Some stat block items were missing for the sake of brevity, though ya it isn't perfectly official that way. Iterative projectile vomit attacks are a specific exception to the normal natural attack rules. I realize a Su deathwatch would be less clunky, but an SLA is easier to metamagic. I suppose I could have done a custom Su feat instead. Such as:

Enlarged Deathwatch
A buzzardfolk who selects this feat applies the enlarge spell metamagic feat to his deathwatch ability.

(This feat only applies to (Su) deathwatch not the original (SLA))

An appropriately balanced LA +0 template that would add +2 intelligence, you can get fancy if you like. Please and thank you. I want to know that whatever is done is balanced, or I'd do it myself. I know you're the best around GitP forums.

I assume you're doing this for a caster, but making a template that'll hurt a caster will bone everyone over... I'll try and make an intermediate.

Wrackbound
+2 Int, -2 Wis or Con (see text)

In a ritual that pulls at the very fiber of your being, you have undergone a ritual where you engrave sigils in Draconic somewhere on your body, in a size at least as large as your palm. These sigils promote your mental processing, but drain your sanity and your health. If you can cast spells, manifest powers (not including from magic items) or know more than 2 spell-like/psi-like abilities above 0th level, you suffer -2 penalty to Constitution. If you do not fulfill those requirements, you suffer a -2 penalty to Wisdom.

These resonate magic, can be detected as a weak abjuration by anyone with the means. A layer of clothing is not enough to block this, but something metal (like armor) will.

In addition, wrackbound gain the following benefits:

Skill points from the Intelligence bonus of this template apply retroactively.
Choose 3 knowledge skills when taking this template. Those become class skills for you, and you gain a +1 enhancement bonus to those checks.
You lose all languages you once knew, and must spend skill points to re-learn those languages. You may now spend 1 skill point to learn 2 languages with the Speak Language skill.
If you place your sigils in a visible place, they put off those who talk to you, and you suffer a -2 penalty to diplomacy checks. If you hide your sigils, they act up when you are around company, and you consequently suffer a -2 penalty to sense motive checks.

Steward
2012-05-17, 09:31 AM

Oh, now that is awesome. I like the fact that you get multiple choices with one template (choose three new knowledge skills, be a spellcaster or be a non-spellcaster, hide your sigils or wear them proudly)

I'm looking for a homebrew bass class that's kindda like, well "shadow made real". What the class would do is something like he would have so much shadow mass per level he could use to do all kinds of things. He'd be more utility then damage. like at 1st level he could make a key for a door after a appropriate check or a dagger he could use to fight with, or shadow spikes from the ground to hit impale his enemy, and as he progresses in level he could do more extravagant things... Anyone know of anything like that?

Sorry to say this but


The Homebrew Should Be Fairly Small in Scope: Requests should be for homebrew that could be easily contained in one post - asking for a whole new base class or magic system would be a bit too much for this thread. The concept here is really for DMs to request something they expect to use in short order and don't have the time to develop themselves.

This might be too powerful. I didn't spend a lot of time computing balance.

The Shadowcrafter

When a human is born with a touch of draconic blood, sometimes the result is a sorcerer. When that blood is from a Shadow Dragon, the result can be a little different: a shadowcrafter. The arcane energy is turned in a way that isn't exactly spellcasting, but instead links closely to the plane of shadow.

Hit die: d4
Skills: 2+int
Class skills: Craft (any), Hide, Knowledge(arcana), Knowledge(the planes), Move Silently
Proficiencies: simple weapons and light armor

Shadow Points: A shadowcrafter's ability to shape shadow is finite. Each usage costs shadow points. These points are restored with 8 hours of rest (like a sorcerer's spell slots).

Shadow Conjuration(su): A shadowcrafter can imitate any conjuration from the sor/wiz list up to the "max spell level" for his class level. The reality (see the shadow conjuration spell description) is given in the "conjuration reality" column. The save dc is 10 + imitated spell's level + cha mod. The point cost is the level of the imitated spell.

Shadow Tool(su): A shadowcrafter may form from raw shadow a single non-magical object small enough to lift with one hand. He must make a craft check or the object will be non-functional. The object remains so long as he concentrates on it. This ability costs 1 shadow point.

Darkness(su): A shadowcrafter may use the spell darkness for 2 shadow points.

Shadow Evocation(su): Like shadow conjuration, but for evocations and using the "evocation reality" column. Shadow Evocation cannot be used to create light.

Hide in Plain Sight(su): As shadowdancer

Shadow Magical Weapon +1(su): When a shadowcrafter uses the Shadow Tool power to create a masterwork weapon, he may spend an additional shadow point to make it a +1 weapon.

Shadow Jaunt(su): A shadowcrafter can teleport from a natural shadow to another natural shadow within 50 ft for 2 shadow points as a standard action.

Summon Shadow(su): A shadowcrafter can summon a shadow (the monster) as if by a Summon Nature's Ally spell for 3 shadow points.

Shadow Stride(su): Like Shadow Jaunt, but a move action

Shadow Magical Weapon +2 (adjustable)(su): When using Shadow Magical Weapon, a shadowcrafter may spent one more shadow point to either make a +2 weapon or add an enchantment with a +1 cost (e.g. shocking).

Shadow Blink(su): Like Shadow Jaunt, but a swift action

Summon Greater Shadow(su): Like Summon Shadow, but a Greater Shadow and costs 9 shadow points

Shadow Creature(su): A shadowcrafter at the peek of his art becomes a creature of shadow. He is treated as having the [shadow] subtype when it is beneficial to him. He also may planeshift himself and up to 5 allies to or from the plane of shadow for 1 shadow point.

@ R680: so do you still want the mind blasting/tbrain eating race that is effectivly a devolved mind flayer, or another, totally unliked squid-headed race more focused on melee?

also, any LA?

The Shadowcrafter

When a human is born with a touch of draconic blood, sometimes the result is a sorcerer. When that blood is from a Shadow Dragon, the result can be a little different: a shadowcrafter. The arcane energy is turned in a way that isn't exactly spellcasting, but instead links closely to the plane of shadow.

Shadow Points: A shadowcrafter's ability to shape shadow is finite. Each usage costs shadow points. These points are restored with 8 hours of rest (like a sorcerer's spell slots).

Shadow Conjuration(su): A shadowcrafter can imitate any conjuration from the sor/wiz list up to the "max spell level" for his class level. The reality (see the shadow conjuration spell description) is given in the "conjuration reality" column. The save dc is 10 + imitated spell's level + cha mod. The point cost is the level of the imitated spell.

Shadow Tool(su): A shadowcrafter may form from raw shadow a single non-magical object small enough to lift with one hand. He must make a craft check or the object will be non-functional. The object remains so long as he concentrates on it. This ability costs 1 shadow point.

Darkness(su): A shadowcrafter may use the spell darkness for 2 shadow points.

Shadow Evocation(su): Like shadow conjuration, but for evocations and using the "evocation reality" column. Shadow Evocation cannot be used to create light.

Hide in Plain Sight(su): As shadowdancer

Shadow Magical Weapon +1(su): When a shadowcrafter uses the Shadow Tool power to create a masterwork weapon, he may spend an additional shadow point to make it a +1 weapon.

Shadow Jaunt(su): A shadowcrafter can teleport from a natural shadow to another natural shadow within 50 ft for 2 shadow points as a standard action.

Summon Shadow(su): A shadowcrafter can summon a shadow (the monster) as if by a Summon Nature's Ally spell for 3 shadow points.

Shadow Stride(su): Like Shadow Jaunt, but a move action

Shadow Magical Weapon +2 (adjustable)(su): When using Shadow Magical Weapon, a shadowcrafter may spent one more shadow point to either make a +2 weapon or add an enchantment with a +1 cost (e.g. shocking).

Shadow Blink(su): Like Shadow Jaunt, but a swift action

Summon Greater Shadow(su): Like Summon Shadow, but a Greater Shadow and costs 9 shadow points

Shadow Creature(su): A shadowcrafter at the peek of his art becomes a creature of shadow. He is treated as having the [shadow] subtype when it is beneficial to him. He also may planeshift himself and up to 5 allies to or from the plane of shadow for 1 shadow point.

Some time ago I happened to find some alternate rule for weapon proficiencies, that I quite liked, but never remembered to save it or link back to it, so I thought I would ask the nice people here for help.

If I remember right, that rule was based on giving classes a characteristic called a 'proficiency rating' (or something similar) based on their BAB/class (maybe an ability modifier too?) and then assigning similar scores to weapons ('complexity/skill/aptitude score'), so a character is proficient with all weapons whose complexity rating is equal to or lower than his proficiency rating.
Does anyone know where to find this rule? If so, I would be quite happy.
Thanks in advance.

I was hoping for a PrC of a spellcaster who specializes in the Servant Horde spell. I see the Str increasing as well as the skills improving (they are currently only able to perform skills with a DC up to 10). These two will increase each level.

Not sure about other class features though.

[/table]

Servant Power
Unseen servants you create (via servant horde, unseen servant or another spell) have a strength score equal to twice your Servant Commander level. It requires area damage equal to 1/4th your own maximum hitpoints to dissipate one of your unseen servants or 6 damage, whichever is greater (no save).

Talented Servants
Unseen servants you create may use your skill ranks to perform tasks, up to a maximum of your Servant Commander level plus 9. A servant's effective ability modifier for the purpose of these skills is equal to his strength modifier. Talented Servants applies only to the following skills: craft (any), any dex based skill, any str based skill, disable device, forgery, perform and search.

Faithful Servants
Unseen servant, servant horde and other spells you cast that create unseen servants and normally last 1 hour per caster level have a duration of 24 hours instead, if this is greater.

Independent Servants
Unseen servants you create remain in existence at any range, even if you move to another plane. However they still must be within the spell's range for you to issue new orders.

Diligent Servants
Unseen servants you create have a land speed of 30 feet. Additionally they may be targetted by spells that grant a form of movement that normally only target other creatures, such as spider climb or fly. Any benefits such a spell has beyond providing a form of movement has no effect on your unseen servant; not even enhancement bonuses to speed.

Formal Servants
Unseen servants you create may assume a humanoid form similar to your own race. They are still invisible, however they may wear items meant for a humanoid (which remain visible). You or another creature may create a disguise for one of your servants, at a -4 penalty for not having a gender nor age category, as if it were a humanoid of your race. It still lacks intelligence and may not speak nor make complicated decisions, which may foil the ruse. Your unseen servants gain no benefit from wearing magic items, though those that don't need to be worn to be effective and don't rely on command words might still be activated by the servant. This ability does *not* grant the servant other abilities such as the ability to fight in combat.

Ghostly Servants
Your unseen servants, along with any of their equipment up to their carrying capacity, may become ethereal at will to pass freely through walls. Activating or dismissing this ability is a standard action for the servant. This ability leaves something to be desired for scouting, since mindless servants are limited in their abilities to understand what they see or to communicate. However they might write down literal descriptions of what they see. They do not know the names of unusual creatures or objects.

In all cases it is a move action to direct an unseen servant to perform any task, as with the original spell, including tasks involving a special ability granted by this class.

Other comments: I tried to keep the abilities strictly limited to utility to limit the power so that there would be no lost spellcasting. Wizards also lose bonus feats, whereas sorcerers are forced into a permanent spell known and difficulty with skills. Both lose levels that could be put into other PrCs as well. In the end I decided it still required the payment of 1 more feat which I made enlarge spell, since it is mildly useful for servants.

A spell, probably high level but preferably not epic, which inflicts small amounts of ability burn, and maybe other effects, like temporary blindness or raw damage. Also preferably with a material component of autunite gems, which are probably expensive, since I sort of want to it to be radiation themed, as well as derived from a combination of elemental stuff from the Negative Energy Plane and Plane of Radiance, maybe, though that's just my personal opinion and can be ignored.

Evocation [Force, Light]
Level: Sor/Wiz 9
Components: V, S, M,
Casting Time: 1 full round action
Range: Long (400 ft+40 ft/level)
Area: A spread 40 ft/level in diameter
Duration: Instaneous
Saving throw: Fortitude half and Fortitude partial (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes (see text)

As you study the ancient runic stele from one of the great cities from the old empire of Netheril you notice an image that depicts a mage who glows and crackles with arcane power, as he smashes together a pair of stones that seem to be infused with not only what you manage to translate as“ light-grow-power“ and „shadow-hunger-power“, respectively but also a radiance of some sort, that seems to emanate from the stones themselves. On the following image you see the terrible power of this war-sorcery, a great plume of light and arcane fire that blazed across the sky and scorched an army to dust and struck many others with blindness and a sickening blight.
You dare not to read the runes spread across both images, for they might be either notes on the scene´s mood or some or maybe the words of great magic.

As you forcibly combine positive and negative energy through a conduit of diseased stone, the result is great blast of magic in a dazzling mix of emerald green, poisonous yellow, and bright silver.The missile is most commonly teardrop shaped and 3 feet long and two feet wide at the widest point.When it reaches its destination, the resultant explosion of untamed primordial essence fills the spell´s area nearly instantaneously, creating almost no pressure. It deals 1d6 points of damage per two caster levels, half of which is force and half is untyped, to all objects and creatures in the area.
Succeeding at a Fortitude save allows a creature to take half of the total sum of the damage, divided evenly between both types of damage.

Additionally, the explosion creates a flash of extraordinarily bright light that washes over the spell´s area, and extends as a spread 100 ft beyond its edges before it dissipates. This light is so intense that it causes sighted creatures irradiated by it to be permanently blinded as their eyes burn out, unless they are protected by spell resistance or make a successful Fortitude save, in which case they are only blind for 1 hour.

The temporary blindness can be cured by a Remove blindness/deafness spell, while undoing permanent blindness requires the use of a spell capable of restoring lost body parts, like Regenerate.
Creatures illuminated by the light beyond the area where the spell deals damage get a +4 circumstance bonus on their Fortitude saves against blindness. The blinding light is a [Light] effect that dispels or counters any spell with the [Darkness] descriptor of 9th or lower level.

Lastly, all creatures affected by the spell have their bodies ravaged so drastically by the untamed arcane power that they must succeed at a third Fortitude save or a SR check to avoid taking 1d4 points of ability burn (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/psionic/psionicPowersOverview.htm#abilityBurn)to one physical ability score (Strength, Dexterity or Constitution), chosen randomly. Those that successfully defend against this effect instead take only half the ability burn they would suffer normally, to a minimum of 1 point of ability burn.

Material component:
A pair of autunite gems infused with positive and negative energy, respectively, that the caster smashes together when she finishes casting the spell. The set costs 15 000 gp to purchase.


Well, this is the first time that I´ve made such a powerful spell, and I would like some feedback and PEACHes on it, since I can help but keep thinking that it is more powerful than Meteor swarm(:smalleek:) because of the area, damage and the aftereffects, but then again, each of the aftereffects allows both a save and a SR check to mitigate it and the spell has a full round casting time and requires a material component that costs 15 000 gp, 3/5 of what the True resurrection spell takes. Is it too much? Or too little?

I think the True resurrection costs so much because it is a special effect, but should not be a 'nuke caliber' Evocation equally special, because it carries a bunch of secondary effects and inconvenient ability burn?

On that note, I originally intended to make a way to cure that ability burn by drinking a potion mixed with some alchemical item, getting nauseated for 1d4 hours and passing a DC 25 Fort save, which makes the all the burn go away the next time you rest for 8 hours, but I decided that it was wrong to let someone cure incurable things, not to mention stupid, so I scrapped it.

Bottom line, I´m not sure at all sure about balance, so thanks for any feedback.

Looks cool. I'm not especially good with balance either, which is why came to this thread, though I imagine being more powerful that Meteor Swarm is too much of a worry, since it's one of the weakest 9th level spells, IIRC, especially when compared to things like Shapechange or Time Stop. Ordinarily SR doesn't permit partial effects, but I'm okay with that at the moment, since this supposed to be an ancient super weapon, which I would feel weird about if it couldn't effect golems at all. I was actually thinking that it might even be an Incantation rather than an actual spell, but I neglected to mention that, and it isn't super important.

All in all, I'm satisfied, though I might wait for further judgement, since I might be using this in meatspace game and I don't want to mess it up too bad.

A lot.

The problem with full-casting PRCs is that they tend to be strictly superior to the base classes, which is unbalanced. Explicit drawbacks or painful entry requirements can work around that, but neither fits very well.

I'll think about it, though. Or maybe someone else will come up with something.
