    Default Request a Homebrew: Thread 2!

    Here's the OP from the First Thread:
    Quote Originally Posted by Gorbash Kazdar View Post

    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)

    Spoiler
    Show

    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…
    Hogwood (Level 12 Elite Brute)

    Huge natural animate (plant); XP 1400
    Initiative +8; Perception +11; low-light vision
    HP 298; Bloodied 149
    AC 26, Fortitude 27, Reflex 22, Will 24
    Speed 5 (forestwalk)
    Resist 10 radiant; Vulnerable 10 fire (see ashcoat)
    Saving Throws +2; Action Points 1

    TRAITS
    Forest Camouflage
    When in terrain that consists mostly of trees, underbrush, plants, or natural growth, the hogwood gains a +5 bonus on Stealth and can hide with any cover or concealment.

    Light Feeding (healing)
    If the hogwood begins its turn in an area of bright light, it regains 10 hp.

    STANDARD ACTIONS
    [M] Tree Tusk • At-Will
    Attack: Melee 2 (one creature); +17 vs. AC.
    Hit: 3d8 + 12 damage, and the target is pushed 2 squares and knocked prone.

    [m] Pig-Headed Rush • Recharge 5, 6
    Effect: The hogwood moves up to twice its speed and can move through enemies’ spaces during the move. The hogwood cannot end its movement in a space occupied by a creature. Each time the hogwood enters an enemy’s space for the first time during the move, it makes the following attack against that enemy.
    Attack: Melee 0; +15 vs. Reflex.
    Hit: 2d8 + 8 damage, and the enemy falls prone.
    Effect: At the end of this movement, the hogwood makes a melee basic attack as a free action.

    MOVE ACTION
    [a] Razorbark • Recharge 6
    Attack: Area burst 2 within 10 (all creatures in burst); +17 vs. AC.
    Hit: 2d6 + 6 damage, and the target takes ongoing 5 (save ends).

    TRIGGERED ACTIONS
    [c] Ashcoat (poison) • At-Will
    Trigger: The hogwood takes fire damage.
    Attack (Immediate Reaction): Close burst 2 (non-plant creatures in burst); +15 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: 3d6 + 8 poison damage, and the target takes a −2 penalty on attack rolls (save ends).

    Resurgence • Encounter
    Trigger: The hogwood first becomes bloodied during an encounter.
    Effect (Immediate Reaction): All powers or abilities of the hogwood are recharged.

    MINOR ACTIONS
    Light Step • At-Will
    Requirement: The hogwood must be in bright light.
    Effect: The hogwood shifts 1 square.

    Skills Endurance +15, Stealth +11
    Str 22 (+13) Dex 11 (+6) WIs 16 (+9)
    Con 19 (+10) Int 8 (+5) Cha 7 (+4)
    Alignment unaligned Languages none
    Hogwoods in Combat

    Once provoked, a hogwood can decimate unprepared foes with its varied attacks. A hogwood does not hold back and uses its most powerful attacks at first opportunity. It actively seeks out any foe who deals fire damage, and it attempts to destroy that enemy first if it is able to do so, making use of its light step to avoid unwanted combat.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I've got a red pen and I'm not afraid to use it.

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

    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 , 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 .

    Make a merfolk wizard named magikarp.
    or better yet a intelligent carp wizard that can cast by flopping on the ground and saying magikarp instead of the proper symbiotic and verbal components.

    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."

    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.

    R701

    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>.

    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.

    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.
    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?

    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.

    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 that gives it an artificer-like craft pool, but it can only create Warheart items; 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?

    I think you can give this option for Handle Animal to the gray jester, 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 (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.
    ... But that is not the point here, this is:

    Sorry for using the 3.5 format instead of the Pathfinder one, but I could not find a board compatible template, with all these lines and dividers.
    I have a feeling it will need a thorough PEACHing, so please, feel free, anybody.

    Can anybody homebrew this creature for 3.5e? 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 will be very grateful if somebody does this. Thanks in advance!
