    If you want a specific species/type/general swath of dinosaur, name it and I'll hammer something out. I don't write lore, though, so think of something cool.

    The Generic Dinosaur Idea sounds cool....If you could come up with the name, Im sure I could write the lore.

    R.819 I'm really just looking for a quick homebrew that'd let characters use up their HP to perform even more extraordinary things than characters can usually do in 3.5 for a solo session I'm hosting. What I'm looking for basically is the ability to trade HP for viable bonuses: maybe a martial character would deal more damage or do an extra attack, maybe a caster would be able to cast an extra spell, and maybe a skillmonkey could use all of its ingenuinity to overcome an obstacle, to try to turn HP into a ressource of sorts, while not being easily abuseable by carying 20 CLW wands around. Perhaps an ability that could be used twice a day, the first time leaving its user fatigued, and the second time, exhausted? I'm not sure how to balance this at all.

    The game isn't very optimised, either. It's pretty casual.

    He was once human, or at least something like it. He was also a powerful arcane caster. But he gave it all up in a ritual, in which he purposely died (similarly to becoming a lich), and split his soul into a thousand pieces (or maybe even more.) The ritual's effects then took all magic he had in him, as well as much of the latent magic in the local aura, and fused it with the soul-bits into a new soul, before bringing him back to life in his original body. Because of this, he no longer has spells, but he still has the magic. In fact, that magic is now inherently part of him.

    Of course, more than just arcane magic was absorbed. There was also a large amount of essentia (from Magic of Incarnum), and there might have been (and probably were) energies drawn from other planes (astral, shadow, etc.), psionic energies, quintessence ("Thoon illithid stuff"), and many other things. (Most class features should be based on "unlocking" abilities coming from his "soul mix-in stuff".)
    It isn't too soon to repost this one, is it?

    I would like ideas for class abilities for a spellcaster prestige class based on infusing spells with light, and empowering/modifying light spells. The class itself is meant to be an arcane caster with some divine flavor, so abilities that would make spells more effective against evil outsiders and the like are welcome.

    C. 820 yes, too many to name really.

    Here's a thread full of ones I personally enjoy the look of http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165439 and there's a few more recent classes you can find them all here http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=240717.

    Oslecamo continued his thing on another site and made all advanced versions of creatures into Prestige Classes.
    It's also subject to more of that, balance checking, thing people like to do to make sure something isn't too powerful.


    Thread has same name on both sites.

    I want to have Squarks and Tako in my D&D game. If nobody has done an actual 3.5 conversion of their official stats, the next-best thing would be a statted-up giant octopus or large squid or something (these animals are in the MM animals chapter, but I was hoping to do better) which can be adapted to both an intelligent amphibious version and a ravening predator.

    I'm working on a bronze age Pathfinder campaign setting where medium armor and above is pretty much non-existent. As such I need a variant Fighter class that is restricted to light armor or less, but is still balanced.

    C 823. "Still balanced" implies that it was balanced in the first place, which is highly dubious. I'd suggest looking/asking for a couple of Fighter-ish classes that embody tighter concepts than merely "good with weapons" (for example, converting archetypes into classes and then giving them their own archetypes, although I'm not as familiar with PF). If I come across some good ones, I'll edit them in.

That being the case, I'd like an Incarnum base class that doesn't have anything to do with alignment, but does have to do with drawing upon your second soul for power, and could theoretically be applied to any lifestyle, urban or wilderness. Tier 3 is the optimal tier.

    Originally it was just one more example of D&D's longstanding tradition of absurd animal hybrids (of which the Owlbear is the best known since TSR/Wizards insists on pretending it is awesome). I was originally planning to simply excluded it from my CW, which is easily done...but then I realized that while it being yet another example of Bored Wizard Syndrome is silly, it works very well if you imagine that it's an incarnation of the racial terror of underwater humanoids, because it is a combination of the two most dangerous and horrifying creatures in the sea. So I plan on treating it as a Magical Beast or possibly an Aberration, perhaps giving it a few extra Su abilities based around terrifying merfolk and deep elves and such, and referring to it by a much less imbecilic name, one which I made up off the top of my head and which sounds appropriately quasi-demonic: Lokhorrok. The result will be pure awesomesauce in any aquatic campaign (for whatever that's worth).

    Really, your best bet is probably just to ignore the alignment restrictions of Incarnate and Soulborn (along with buffing Soulborn a lot, or just combine the two into a single class which gets 3/4 BAB, d8s, and the full Incarnate melding ability; there's already a d8 RSL for Aasimars and turning it into a full class is not likely to break anaything).

    H824

    The Half-Succubus

    This inherited template can be applied to any living, corporeal creature that reproduces sexually.

    • Type becomes outsider. Do not recalculate Hit Dice, base attack bonus, or saves.
    • A half-succubus has retractable bat wings. Unless the base creature has a better fly speed, the creature can fly at the base creature’s base land speed (average maneuverability). Retracting or expressing the wings is a move action.
    • Natural armor improves by +1
    • A half-succubus with an Intelligence or Wisdom score of 8 or higher has spell-like abilities depending on its Hit Dice, as indicated on the table. The abilities are cumulative. Each ability is usable 3/day. Caster level equals the creature’s HD, and the save DC is Charisma-based.

      {table]1-2|Charm Person
      3-4|Detect Thoughts
      5-6|Suggestion
      7-8|Charm Monster
      9-10|Dominate Person
      11-12|Teleport
      13-14|Charm Monster, Mass
      15-16|Ethereal Jaunt
      17-18|Dominate Monster
      19-20|Trap the Soul[/table]
    • Darkvision out to 60 feet.
    • Immunity to poison.
    • Resistance to acid 10, cold 10, electricity 10, and fire 10.
    • Damage reduction: 5/magic (if HD 11 or less) or 10/magic (if HD 12 or more).
    • A half-succubus’s natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
    • Spell resistance equal to creature’s HD + 10 (maximum 35).
    • Abilities: int+2, wis+2, cha+8
    • +4 racial bonus on listen, spot and disguise checks. These skills are always class skills for a half-succubus, as is speak language.
    • Any creature kissed by a half-succubus must make a fort save (dc 10 + 1/2 HD + cha mod) or suffer 1 point of constitution drain. If the creature fails the save, the half-succubus gains temporary hp equal to the creature's hit dice. Regardless of the fort save, the kiss bestows a suggestion spell (same dc, but will) to kiss again. A half-succubus cannot drain a creature below half its original constitution.
    • Challenge Rating: HD 4 or less, as base creature +1; HD 5 to 10, as base creature +2; HD 11 or more, as base creature +3.
    • Level Adjustment +4.

    The problem with that is the class features are all based around alignment. I thought about converting, and it would be more or less as big a project as creating a new class.

    Love the half-succubus there.

    * Aura and Detect Oppositition don't apply but big flippin' deal. If necessary you can invent new "alignments" that fit the theme of your setting (in mine I might go with Nature vs. Madness, since I use the Book of Aberrations a lot and I like Druids) and have Incarnates detect those.
    * Incarnum Radiance can be treated as "choose one" regardless of alignment (the GM might veto certain combinations if they look broken, but there's no reason Law couldn't have AC just as logically as Good does, or why Chaos especially has to grant speed as opposed to anything else). Or you could homebrew your own effects for other Incarnum Radiances - Nature might give a little Fast Healing, Madness might boost your Will Saves, who the heck knows.
    * Incarnate Weapon really doesn't have to have anything to do with alignment, they just cribbed that bit from Spiritual Weapon without really thinking it through. You probably want to stick to d8 martial weapons but even that might be negotiable if you look carefully at the balance involved. In my game I have an NPC Evil Incarnate who cuts people down with a big scythe; the real scythe is probably too potent to give to a player, but a Large-sized Sickle that you can wield as if it were Medium (you won't get Reach since you yourself are not Large) is probably not unreasonable.
    * Totem Avatar is a sticky one since all the listed avatars are alignment-based outsiders, but you could just make it look like whatever you think your character's "war form" should be - for True Neutral there's outsider dudes called Rilmani in Planechase, though I encourage going for something cooler than them. And the ability it grants can be worked out much the same way that the Incarnum Radiance is (Chaos would like to politely suggest that you refrain from a completely un-synergistic and off-flavor idea like having the Blue Slaad form with its giant claws boost your ranged attacks, while you have tons of mobility from your Radiance so you could easily close to melee.)

    Sample Char: Newt Middleton, True Neutral Human Incarnate
    * Aura of Total-Squareness Level 1, Detect Funny Business At Will
    * Incarnum Radiance: An aura of crisp, sterile clarity leaches the color from the surrounding area, making nearby objects look grayish and slightly transparent (this has no effect on visibility). This sharpens Newt's vision and grants him a +1 bonus on ranged attacks.
    * Incarnate Weapon: Looks like a giant fork; stats as a trident. Typically says something about his opponent being "completely out to lunch" before attacking.
    * Incarnate Avatar: Looks like a giant faceless accountant in a pinstripe suit. Characters within 5 feet per invested e at the start of their action have their speed halved for the round, as their minds fill up with a distracting battle of the pointless questions of typical of bureaucratic red-tape.
    * Other soulmelds: Enigma Helm.

    There, that's an intentionally somewhat silly but perfectly playable skeleton for an alignment-less (apart from Total-Square vs. Funny-Business, which the GM will have to make ad-hoc judgments on) Incarnate 3, who gets all of the alignment-related stuff (AFAICR) out of the way; for the remaining 17 levels everything else about him can be completely RAW.

    R825:
    A 3.5 rework of the Lucid Dreaming skill, such that it has more ability to actually affect a dream in more significant ways, less "Lucid Dreaming is an assasination skill", and less that makes it so that it only works in campaigns where dreaming is actually a mind-only automatic Planeshift to a specific plane.
