Re: Student of the Weird[3.5]-PEACH
So, are you saying that the flight as it is is overpowered, underpowered, or just okay? Not clear on that one.

Maybe if I can ever think of some more, I might extend the progression of Unusual Anatomy. Also, Don't underestimate Aspect of the Odd, as it usually turns out to be pretty useful.
On the monster "levels", the reason I restricted the maximum levels because some of the monster classes with lower amounts of total levels could be used to make the Student of the Weird way more powerful than the other members of the party, or, more importantly, the monsters the party will be facing. This is seen in such examples as the Ghoul and Aranea classes. Both can be used quite lethally in combat, or even out of it.
