    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
    Outsider:
    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.

    If you ever think English isn't a screwed up language, just remember that read and lead rhyme and read and lead rhyme, but read and lead don't rhyme and neither do read and lead.
