I don't see this working too well. This class is based off binding energies to your soul rather then parts of your body (atleast how I imagine it anyhow).

Well, I did go ahead and draw up a list on the limitations subject earlier, mainly to see how it would look. Its as follows:
Type - can't be bound with:
Abberation - Ooze, Elemental
Animal - Vermin
Deathless - Undead, Demons, Devils
Dragon - Magical Beast, Ooze
Elemental - Fey, Plant
Fey - Elemental, Plant
Giant - None
Magical Beast - Dragon, Vermin
Ooze - Dragon
Celestial - Demons, Devils, Undead
Demons - Celestials, Deathless, Devils
Devils - Celestials, Deathless, Demons
Plant - Elemental, Fey
Undead - Deathless, Celestials
Vermin - Animal

EDIT: As in, the whole "binding to body locations" in combination with "taking on monster abilities" that this thread is about. I'm familiar with Incarnum, just so you know.
Depends on how you look at it. Theres only so many ways to to do a MoI type binding system after all.
On that note, I never intended to use a MoI system, This is more along the lines of binding the creational energies of the Cosmos to your own soul rather then to any part of your actual body. Its a much expanded version of the Demon Binder PrC I made a while back, which that was a rewrite of the Demonbinder PrC out of Drow of the Underdark
In short, the base idea might be similair (which happens alot), but the construction and flavor of the classes will be completely different.
