    Thanks in advance, to whomever considers my request.

    Blaze of the conflux
    Evocation [Force, Light]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 9
    Components: V, S, M,
    Casting Time: 1 full round action
    Range: Long (400 ft+40 ft/level)
    Area: A spread 40 ft/level in diameter
    Duration: Instaneous
    Saving throw: Fortitude half and Fortitude partial (see text)
    Spell Resistance: Yes (see text)

    As you study the ancient runic stele from one of the great cities from the old empire of Netheril you notice an image that depicts a mage who glows and crackles with arcane power, as he smashes together a pair of stones that seem to be infused with not only what you manage to translate as“ light-grow-power“ and „shadow-hunger-power“, respectively but also a radiance of some sort, that seems to emanate from the stones themselves. On the following image you see the terrible power of this war-sorcery, a great plume of light and arcane fire that blazed across the sky and scorched an army to dust and struck many others with blindness and a sickening blight.
    You dare not to read the runes spread across both images, for they might be either notes on the scene´s mood or some or maybe the words of great magic.


    As you forcibly combine positive and negative energy through a conduit of diseased stone, the result is great blast of magic in a dazzling mix of emerald green, poisonous yellow, and bright silver.The missile is most commonly teardrop shaped and 3 feet long and two feet wide at the widest point.When it reaches its destination, the resultant explosion of untamed primordial essence fills the spell´s area nearly instantaneously, creating almost no pressure. It deals 1d6 points of damage per two caster levels, half of which is force and half is untyped, to all objects and creatures in the area.
    Succeeding at a Fortitude save allows a creature to take half of the total sum of the damage, divided evenly between both types of damage.

    Additionally, the explosion creates a flash of extraordinarily bright light that washes over the spell´s area, and extends as a spread 100 ft beyond its edges before it dissipates. This light is so intense that it causes sighted creatures irradiated by it to be permanently blinded as their eyes burn out, unless they are protected by spell resistance or make a successful Fortitude save, in which case they are only blind for 1 hour.

    The temporary blindness can be cured by a Remove blindness/deafness spell, while undoing permanent blindness requires the use of a spell capable of restoring lost body parts, like Regenerate.
    Creatures illuminated by the light beyond the area where the spell deals damage get a +4 circumstance bonus on their Fortitude saves against blindness. The blinding light is a [Light] effect that dispels or counters any spell with the [Darkness] descriptor of 9th or lower level.

    Lastly, all creatures affected by the spell have their bodies ravaged so drastically by the untamed arcane power that they must succeed at a third Fortitude save or a SR check to avoid taking 1d4 points of ability burn to one physical ability score (Strength, Dexterity or Constitution), chosen randomly. Those that successfully defend against this effect instead take only half the ability burn they would suffer normally, to a minimum of 1 point of ability burn.

    Material component:
    A pair of autunite gems infused with positive and negative energy, respectively, that the caster smashes together when she finishes casting the spell. The set costs 15 000 gp to purchase.


    Well, this is the first time that I´ve made such a powerful spell, and I would like some feedback and PEACHes on it, since I can help but keep thinking that it is more powerful than Meteor swarm() because of the area, damage and the aftereffects, but then again, each of the aftereffects allows both a save and a SR check to mitigate it and the spell has a full round casting time and requires a material component that costs 15 000 gp, 3/5 of what the True resurrection spell takes. Is it too much? Or too little?

    I think the True resurrection costs so much because it is a special effect, but should not be a 'nuke caliber' Evocation equally special, because it carries a bunch of secondary effects and inconvenient ability burn?

    On that note, I originally intended to make a way to cure that ability burn by drinking a potion mixed with some alchemical item, getting nauseated for 1d4 hours and passing a DC 25 Fort save, which makes the all the burn go away the next time you rest for 8 hours, but I decided that it was wrong to let someone cure incurable things, not to mention stupid, so I scrapped it.

    Bottom line, I´m not sure at all sure about balance, so thanks for any feedback.

    Looks cool. I'm not especially good with balance either, which is why came to this thread, though I imagine being more powerful that Meteor Swarm is too much of a worry, since it's one of the weakest 9th level spells, IIRC, especially when compared to things like Shapechange or Time Stop. Ordinarily SR doesn't permit partial effects, but I'm okay with that at the moment, since this supposed to be an ancient super weapon, which I would feel weird about if it couldn't effect golems at all. I was actually thinking that it might even be an Incantation rather than an actual spell, but I neglected to mention that, and it isn't super important.

    All in all, I'm satisfied, though I might wait for further judgement, since I might be using this in meatspace game and I don't want to mess it up too bad.

    Thanks for the quick reply. If you have the time, could you possibly edit it to sacrifice some BAB or melee capablities for full caster, ala sacred exorcist? That would be greatly appreciated.

    A lot.

    The problem with full-casting PRCs is that they tend to be strictly superior to the base classes, which is unbalanced. Explicit drawbacks or painful entry requirements can work around that, but neither fits very well.

    I'll think about it, though. Or maybe someone else will come up with something.

    To help more, Yes Demon Dragon With Tentacles, based off of This Pic.

    IA DAGON!

    I was hopeing for a Ability to grant minor/major spells based off of Dagon Knowing "Forbidden and Forgeton lore".

    Also Make this power Reasonable but as powerful, as I only have one Homebrew spot left and if this Dragon is not accpted then I lose it.

    Thanks!

    Edit, Kinda melding this, Anyone know of a Race that is Dagon but Medium size? if there aint then might someone attempt this?

    *A Dagon dragon also receives spells from the cleric spell list, and those from the madness, water, and knowledge domain

    Breath weapon (Su): A dagon dragon may breath a cone of maddening phrases that rend the mind, the DC is a will save, being deaf makes you immune. recharge 1-4 rounds.
    Water breathing: a dagon dragon may breath underwater indefinitely and can freely use its breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged
    corrupt water (Sp): once per day an adult or older dagon dragon can stagnate 10 cubic feet of water, making it become still, foul, and unable to support life. the ability spoils liquids containing water, magic items (such as potions) and items in a creatures possession must succeed on a will save (DC equal to the dragons frightening presence DC) or become fouled. this ability is equivalent to a first level spell, its range is equal to that of the dragons frightening presence.
    Charm Deep ones (Sp): a great wyrm dagon dragon can use this ability three times per day. it functions as a mass charm spell that affects only aquatic humanoids. the dragon can communicate with any charmed humanoids as though casting a tongues spell. this ability is the equivalent of a 1st level spell.

    Hi. Completely new to this forum. Been out of the 3.5 area for awhile and decided to get back in. Anyway! On to my request!

    I'm looking for a DND 3.5 generalized adaptation of Unlimited Blade Works from Fate/ Stay Night. That is to say I want it to grant the ability to replace reality with one's own mind, but not be restricted to the field of swords Archer/Emiya has characterized it as. It should be psionic-based for apparent reasons. The end result should incredibly shift the odds of battle to the caster/envoker's favor. To off-set this it should have some pretty steep prereqs or casting requirements. I know it's not very specific when I say, "replace reality with one's own mind" because that could be practically anything. So there should be some sort of system that would allow you to characterize your reality marble when you obtain the spell or over time. I would appreciate any idea bc This is one of my most favorite abilities I've seen in any show ever.

    Oh, and I realize not everyone has seen Fate/ Stay Night, so here's a link to the wiki if you're interested:

    http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/TYPE-MOON_Wiki

    On a side note, I'm also looking for ideas for Archetype classes for the seven servants summoned by the Holy Grail for the Heaven's Feel for a campaign I'm thinking about doing. Please PM me if you have any ideas. :)

    I wish to ask for monstrous insect races. We have the thri kreen(?) race.
    I was reading a horror manga a couple days ago and it involved evolved cockroaches (they looked mostly human)

    Plot: humans terra formed Mars with fungus and cockroaches. Time passed and humans sent a team to check on the progress. They were all wiped out. They sent another team that were engineered by insects themselves to help give them a fighting chance. They go into detail about real bugs and the change that happens in the human(they go into a hybrid form)

    cockroaches: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/102756/...1_by_utopia/39
    ground beetle:http://www.batoto.net/read/_/104229/...2_by_utopia/23
    paraponera(type of ant)[i read online that the dung beetle can carry 1000 times its weight but I guess it probably wouldn't seem as impressive.]
    http://www.batoto.net/read/_/105667/...3_by_utopia/11
    (Sleeping Chironomid);http://www.batoto.net/read/_/111742/...h5_by_utopia/6

    I'll stop there. Just wanted to show some of the extreme examples. I came to be really impressed by insects because of that.

    I ask for some monstrous humanoids or perhaps insectoid lycanthrope races.

    I might be asking a lot but I think it would be quite an impressive collection of monsters to be used in unique setting.

    It seems a bit extensive for one person. But it would be nice to get many examples in a single place(seperate thread?).

    You might want to take a look at the Carabi here: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showp...85&postcount=1

    And dragon magazine #352 has a couple of articles based on China Miéville's book, Perdido Street Station, including racial stats for the khepri (female humanoids with cockroach-likeheads).

    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.

    C. 788 (The request to create a class/PrC that used a mechanic similar to the reality marble in the Fate/Stay multiverse)

    Well, before homebrewing a class, I can suggest two in-game ways to emulate the whole reality marble concept. One, the Planar Shepard gains an ability similar to this, which can be reflavored to a mental plane. The second method is the non-epic super-psion spell, genesis, with some spell that allows you to teleport unwilling subjects.

    I also know there is a homebrewed warrior class that works off of the idea of teleporting someone to an alternate reality, although I cannot seem to find it.

    An Epic magic item that takes up the head slot and is called "Goggles of Something" (with the word "something" being replaced with something that fits its Epic magic). It should combine the effects of True Seeing, Analyse Dweomer, and Greater Arcane Sight, preferably with some unique abilities of its own tacked on.

    Goggles of Perfect Vision

    These goggles let you see things as they truly are, as with a true seeing spell. Additionally you know the names and properties of all magic items you see, as well any spells or spell like abilities that are in effect. You recognize spellcasters by sight, whether they are arcane or divine (or psionic, with psionics transparency), and the level of the highest level spell they can cast. You recognize any artifact as well as any properties it has that are part of common lore (some may have other unknown properties). You know the name and all abilities of any creature you see that was constructed entirely from magic, such as golems. 3 times per day you may focus on a particular object or creature, magical or not, as if casting a vision spell. You also gain superior low light vision (in addition to true seeing's ability to completely overcome darkness within its range) and the ability to see normally even if you have poor vision or are blind. Thus you gain immunity to blindness and similar effects. For all their benefits these goggles do not grant the ability to see through objects, as with x-ray vision, nor through fog (whether magical or natural). Nor do they reveal mundane disguises or mundane concealment.

    Overwhelming divination; CL 21st; Craft Wondrous Item, Craft Epic Wondrous Item, true seeing, analyze dweomer, greater arcane sight, vision; Price 775,000 gp; Cost 350,000 gp + 45,000 XP; Weight -

    Other Comments: I gave a discount on the 21 caster level because it didn't seem fair for effects that aren't really dependent on it. Would be 950k otherwise. At minimum caster level it would be 550k. Plus a little more for misc effects.

    C 790: Exactly what parts of the Duelist's abilities do you want to have? Most Martial Classes are best done via ToB, so you could simply take a Martial Adept, run around with light armor and a rapier, and call yourself a Duelist. Alternatively, a Swash/Rogue Daring Outlaw is reasonably competent as well, and fits the image.

    Like... a 26-level base class? That may be beyond the scope here.

    Curious what would be the lowest level modifier and monster entry for an outsider (Possibly an Aberation) with the following traits;
    Flight
    2 natural attacks with reach
    An option to advance the creature to 4 natural attacks
    And the inate ability to teleprt at will like a jaunty fellow.

    Purpose: I am setting up a skype campaign which will be run episodicly. Set in the modern day where the D&D pantheon has been asleep for a few millenia. One of them is about to wake up, and this creature will be the PC's first encounter with a sentient being that isn't a human. As such I plan on playing up the "WTF" factor as much as possible during the encounter. The reason I ask for as low a level modifier as possible is so that later on the creature type can return and mix things up with class levels.

    I am not sure if remaking things counts as homebrew or not. I would like if some could remake the dvati and synad race and add some homebrew racial feats.

    This is difficult to set because these things are epic at level 5 and useless at level 20. A few ways around this would be:

    • LA buyoff
    • Picking a high LA appropriate for low levels yet also adding in things which are useful at high levels, like high ability scores.
    • Picking a low LA but making its abilities scale by level : Give them less abilities at low levels and more as they progress in hit dice.


    I think the last one could be done at LA 1 or 2, depending how early/late they get the abilities. Maybe 3 if you want them at moderate/early levels.
