I figure at int 18+ everyone is a schemer...
If I successfully grapple an elder brain and all that, can I eat it?
Ehh, my guy is stupid for an Illithid (int 14) but has charisma out of the wazoo, If it weren't for the max cohort level limit, I would have a mid-teens one.
As for grappling an elder brain...
1: Thats just plain evil/wrong, and you will probably be rather bloated, I don't think it would fit in your stomach.
2: If you can get that close.
And altering my character slightly and fluff. Making him even more of a leader at the expense of close combat. But hey, he isn't supposed to be CC anyhow.
