    Becoming a ghost generally means acquiring the ghost template since that is HOW one becomes a ghost.

    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.

    "Ghost" is being used in a colloquial way so that I don't have to call it "ghost-like undead form that is not a ghost." If you acquired the Ghost template, then I'd declare that you acquired the Ghost template. Instead, I immediately start describing the things you do get, which, you'll note, are quite redundant with the Ghost template. This implies further that you do not get the Ghost template because if you did, why would I specify all this other stuff?

    I'm using your words. If that isn't what you meant, then don't call it a ghost. Ghosts in 3.5 mean ghost template.Saying it becomes ghost-like is perfectly fine and clearer.

    Alternatively, instead of looking at a perceived contradiction and immediately assuming the most problematic solution, you could assume the answer that makes the most sense and eliminates the issue.

    Actually the ghost-like solution is more work for you because now it needs further clarification as to exactly what that means. Ghost is well defined but ghost-like is not. Gaining all the Undead Traits suggests to me that you didn't look at them. Now that we have an Undead with a Con score, some of those traits don't make sense.

    Going Ghost (Su): Through some bizarre accident or circumstance of birth, a ghost boy possesses the strange ability to become a ghost-like at will. As a standard action, he can transform into a ghost-like creature. Upon transforming, his type changes to Undead, and he keeps all subtypes. He acquires all associated Undead traits except that he does not lose his Constitution score and is subject to effects that require Fortitude saves.* He has Turn Resistance equal to his Charisma modifier plus 1/2 his level. With the exceptions of Ghost Sense, Uncanny Dodge, and Evasion, none of his class features can be used outside of his ghost form. Even his normal form, a Ghost Boy is vulnerable to anything that specifically affects Undead except for Turning/Rebuking. However, he receives a +4 bonus on any such effect that offers a save.

    * The problem is with that highlighted sentence. You should go through the Undead Traits because now we have conflicts. He is Undead with Con. Does he get destroyed at 0 hit points? Does he no longer breathe or eat or sleep? Having a Con score kinda negates that. He cannot be raised or reincarnated either. Some Undead traits are good to keep and others are not. The armor bit should be struck since the ghost boys have that as Class Feature now. I'd recommend going through the list below and making the adjustments there.

    Undead Traits
    An undead creature possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).

    • No Constitution score.
    • Darkvision out to 60 feet.
    • Immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects).
    • Immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, stunning, disease, and death effects.
    • Not subject to critical hits, nonlethal damage, ability drain, or energy drain. Immune to damage to its physical ability scores (Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution), as well as to fatigue and exhaustion effects.
    • Cannot heal damage on its own if it has no Intelligence score, although it can be healed. Negative energy (such as an inflict spell) can heal undead creatures. The fast healing special quality works regardless of the creature’s Intelligence score.
    • Immunity to any effect that requires a Fortitude save (unless the effect also works on objects or is harmless).
    • Uses its Charisma modifier for Concentration checks.
    • Not at risk of death from massive damage, but when reduced to 0 hit points or less, it is immediately destroyed.
    • Not affected by raise dead and reincarnate spells or abilities. Resurrection and true resurrection can affect undead creatures. These spells turn undead creatures back into the living creatures they were before becoming undead.
    • Proficient with its natural weapons, all simple weapons, and any weapons mentioned in its entry.
    • Proficient with whatever type of armor (light, medium, or heavy) it is described as wearing, as well as all lighter types. Undead not indicated as wearing armor are not proficient with armor. Undead are proficient with shields if they are proficient with any form of armor.
    • Undead do not breathe, eat, or sleep. *He has a Con score. Keeping this doesn't make sense.



    Ohh Bumblebear. I wrote one of those years ago! I totally forgot about it! I'm going to post it in Bhu's Bee thread. You could post or link yours there too. I bet he'd get a kick out of it.

    Default Telepathic Cube

    The Telepathic Cube

    +16 Constitution, -6 Dexterity, -4 Charisma.
    Ooze (Psionic)
    Large Quadruped: -1 penalty to Armor Class; -1 penalty on attack rolls; -4 penalty on Hide checks; +4 bonus on grapple checks; +4 bonus on ability checks made to resist being bull rushed, overran, or tripped; lifting and carrying limits three times those of Medium bipedal characters.
    Space/Reach: 10 feet/5 feet.
    A telepathic cube’s base land speed is 20 feet
    Blindsight out to 60 feet.
    Telepathy out to 240 feet.
    Natural Weapon: Slam (1d6 plus 1d6 acid)
    Naturally Psionic: Telepathic cubes gain 1 bonus power point at 1st level. This benefit does not grant them the ability to manifest powers unless they gain that ability through another source, such as levels in a psionic class.
    Acid (Ex): A telepathic cube’s acid does not harm metal or stone.
    Engulf (Ex): Although it moves slowly, a telepathic cube can simply mow down Large or smaller creatures as a standard action. It cannot make a slam attack during a round in which it engulfs. The gelatinous cube merely has to move over the opponents, affecting as many as it can cover. Opponents can make opportunity attacks against the cube, but if they do so they are not entitled to a saving throw. Those who do not attempt attacks of opportunity must succeed on a Reflex save (DC11 + 1/2 HD + Strength modifier) or be engulfed; on a success, they are pushed back or aside (opponent’s choice) as the cube moves forward. Engulfed creatures are subject to the cube’s paralysis and acid, and are considered to be grappled and trapped within its body.
    Paralysis (Ex): A telepathic cube secretes an anesthetizing slime. A target hit by a cube’s melee or engulf attack must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC10 +1/2 HD + Constitution modifier) or be paralyzed for 3d6 rounds. The cube can automatically engulf a paralyzed opponent.
    Transparent (Ex): Telepathic cubes are hard to see, even under ideal conditions, and it takes a DC 15 Spot check to notice one. Creatures who fail to notice a cube and walk into it are automatically Engulfed.
    Favored Class: Psion
    Level Adjustment: +1

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: An Ultimate Warrior does not gain any proficiency in weapons or armor.

    Monk Abilities: An Ultimate Warrior's levels stack with his Monk levels for determining unarmed damage, armor bonus, and flurry of blows. If the Ultimate Warrior does not have any levels in Monk, he gains those abilities as a Monk of his Ultimate Warrior level.

    Discipline: Physical (Ex): An Ultimate Warrior lives his life in the Way of a Warrior according to a Warrior's 8 Disciplines. The first of these disciplines that he masters is that of the physical. At level one, he increases his Strength score by 4 points.

    Discipline: Belief: The second of the disciplines to learn is that of belief. At level two, the Ultimate Warrior gains the ability to cast divine spells off of the Cleric spell list. His caster level is equal to his base attack bonus. The key ability for his spellcasting is Wisdom.

    Discipline: Moment of Mastery (Su): The next discipline an Ultimate Warrior learns is that of the moment of mastery. At level three, he can, before rolling an attack roll, a saving throw, or a skill check, choose to take 20 on the roll. He can do this once per day for every three Ultimate Warrior levels he has.

    Discipline: Attitude (Ex): At level four, an Ultimate Warrior masters the discipline of attitude. He gains a bonus on all Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks equal to his Ultimate Warrior level.

    Discipline: Commitment (Ex): The fifth discipline of an Ultimate Warrior is commitment. At level five, he becomes immune to all compulsion effects.

    Discipline: Association (Ex): The sixth of the disciplines is association. At level six, an Ultimate Warrior bestows a morale bonus on attack rolls and AC equal to his Charisma modifier to all allies within 20 feet. In addition, when flanking with an ally, both he and the ally receive double the normal flanking bonus.

    Discipline: Integrity (Su): The penultimate discipline of an Ultimate Warrior is integrity. At level seven, an Ultimate Warrior is constantly surrounded by a Magic Circle against Evil. It has a caster level equal to his total hit dice. If it is subject to a dispell effect, it is suppressed for 1d4 rounds.

    Discipline: Wisdom (Ex): The final discipline that an Ultimate Warrior learns is wisdom. At level eight, his Wisdom score increases by 4.

    Destrucity (Sp): After mastering all of a Warrior's 8 Disciplines, an Ultimate Warrior creates a truce between his Destiny and his Reality. He promises to stay true to what he is destined to be, yet accepts what is the now... his reality. At level nine, he gains the ability to Commune once per week.

    What about Ki Strike advancement?
    You focus the Ultimate Warrior on unarmed strike, but reduce its combat effectiveness vs. many opponents it will encounter at high levels.

    There has to be a give and take. If the Ultimate Warrior advanced all Monk abilities while also giving new things, then there'd be absolutely no point to staying a Monk. The Cleric spells can more than make up for the lack of Ki Strike. Besides, the only thing the default Monk loses, anyways, is Adamantine Stike, which isn't that big a deal.

    Top 3: Spellvoid, Master Thief, and Shadowknife. All reasonably balanced and have good crunch support for their fluff in mechanically reasonably balanced but original ways. Favorite is probably the Spellvoid since it does a better job than many anti-magic PrCs I've seen at actually having features which would give a mage a tough time.
    My homebrew:

    I'd call the Spellvoid my favorite. It's a great class to combo with a party including several different kinds of character and is great for multiple play styles. You can use it for a caster hunter, you can have it be part of a tank by using it's rather impressive SR and abilities to make Crusader even tankier by way of high resistance to magic while having sufficient self-healing... yea, good variety of playstyles available.

    As for other classes helping, a Warlock's Invocation spell-likes might be able to feed the Spellvoid for buffs and temp HP, Artificers can make and upgrade a use-activated item of [insert useful spell here] kept at highest Hightened and CL the Artificer can do for the same job, Mass spell spamming casters can divert a targeting of the spell to the Spellvoid(provided the SR only cancels the part that hits the Spellvoid) and so on. The SR being suppressable also lets casters buff them normally.

    In terms of multiclassing, Warlock/Spellvoid seems particularly cheesy, as you can supply your own spells to eat without limit. Artificer/Spellvoid locks you out of Forsaker if you want to stay effective, but you get to make much more efficient means of providing spells to eat by way of use-activated items of [insert useful spell] that you can metamagic stack/Highten to your limit.

    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    Celestia didn't ask for requests but for information about which were done best. Note also that a dancer PrC already exists for 3.5 that could be easily refluffed. The Cloaked Dancer is from Complete Scoundrel.

    @ Morphic tide: Well, the Warlock won't actually work with Spellvoid like that. Spell Consumption only absorbs spells, not spell-like abilities.

    Anyways, thanks for the answers. I do quite like those three myself. I am especially happy that you like the Spellvoid as I was rather uncertain about it. Still, I would like it if you could maybe pick out a least favorite class? I want to get better.

    That's why I said "might." The Artificer synergy, however, still works wonderfully.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: All simple and martial weapons and all armor and shields (except tower shields).

    Spellcasting: A Unicorn Champion casts spells off the Druid spell list. Her caster level equals her Unicorn Champion level. The key ability for this spellcasting is Charisma.

    Detect Evil (Sp): Like her unicorn companion, a Unicorn Champion can use Detect Evil at will as a free action.

    Divine Health (Ex): As the Paladin ability.

    Special Mount: A Unicorn Champion makes a lifelong alliance and friendship with a unicorn who serves as her mount in battle. The Unicorn collects experience and levels just as a normal character. It does not, however, take a split of the party experience and merely gains the same amount of experience as the Unicorn Champion.

    If her unicorn dies, she cannot acquire a new one. She also cannot gain further levels in the Unicorn Champion class until her unicorn has been resurrected.

    Smite Evil (Su): As the Paladin ability. If a Unicorn Champion gains Smite Evil from any other class, her levels stack for determining extra damage. She can use this ability once per day at level two plus an additional use every four levels.

    Cleanse the Impure: At third level, a Unicorn Champion's unicorn can use its Neutralize Poison ability at will. The caster level for this ability is either 8 or the unicorn's hit dice, whichever is higher.

    Bonus Feats: At level four and every four levels after, a Unicorn Champion gains a bonus feat from the following list. She must meet all prerequisites. Great Fortitude, Iron Will, Mounted Archery, Ride-By Attack, Spirited Charge, Trample, or any Exalted feat.

    Purity of Nature: At fifth level, a Unicorn Champion's unicorn gains the ability to use Remove Disease as a spell-like ability three times per day with a caster level equal to its hit dice.

    Greater Healing: At seventh level, a Unicorn Champion's unicorn improves it's ability to heal others. It can now use Cure Light Wounds five times per day, Cure Moderate Wounds three times per day, and Cure Serious Wounds once per day. The caster level for each ability is either 5 or the unicorn's hit dice, whichever is higher.

    Nature's Bosom: At level nine, a Unicorn Champion's unicorn gains the ability to use Greater Restoration as a spell-like ability three times per day with a caster level equal to its hit dice.


    Ex-Unicorn Champions: If a Unicorn Champion changes her alignment to something other than Neutral Good or Chaotic Good, she loses access to her spellcasting and cannot contimue advancing in the class until she atones. Her unicorn does not leave her unless she turns all the way to evil. It will otherwise attempt to aid her in her atonement. If she violates her Vow of Chastity, her unicorn leaves her forever, and she can never again advance in the class.

    So, you just made a joke PRC that almost entirely invalidates Paladin...
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    How is it a joke? Unicorns are real creatures in D&D. They are Chaotic Good, so you, obviously, can't differ from that. You must be a female Elven virgin because according to unicorn lore, they're the only ones who a unicorn will allow to ride. None of it is invented for humor.

    And "invalidating" a ****ty class, which I proclaim it doesn't, isn't a big deal.

    Unisus and Pegicorns could also fit in with your Unicorn Champion as variants if you allow it.

    You can find the 3.0 Unisus here by Hogan http://www.dragoneers.com/dragoneers. To update to 3.5 is easy peasy. Also, a really good Unisus was converted by EnWorld. Here: http://www.enworld.org/cctest/newcc/...,%20Unisus.htm

    I wrote up a Pegicorn a while ago and have edited it to proper 3.5 format if you want to use it. It doesn't seem proper to post it here but here's a link to it: Pegicorn

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    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.

    Alignment: Any non-Good
    Skills: Perform (Mime) 8 ranks
    Feats: Silent Spell, Skill Focus (Perform)
    Spellcasting: Invisibility and at least one Wall of X spell

    ------------------------------

    Hit Die: d4

    Level BAB Saves Special Spellcasting
    1 +0 +0/+0/+2 Wall Builder +1 to existing spellcasting class
    2 +1 +0/+0/+3 Invisible Spell +1 to existing spellcasting class
    3 +1 +1/+1/+3 Mime's Voice +1 to existing spellcasting class

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Mime Mage does not gain any proficiency in weapons or armor.

    Wall Builder (Su): A Mime Mage has mastered the art of making walls. Whenever he casts a Wall of X spell, he can choose to create any number of walls as long as their combined total area is not larger than the maximum size of the wall he can create. He also casts all Wall of X spells as if he were one level higher.

    Invisible Spell: At level two, a Mime Mage gains Invisible Spell as a bonus feat.

    Mime's Voice (Ex): At third level, a Mime Mage can use Silent Spell with no increase in spell level.

    Rope Gag (Sp): A fourth level Mime Mage can pull others into his act, literally. He can use Telekinesis as a spell-like ability at will.

    Mime's Act (Ex): At level five, a Mime Mage becomes a master of his craft. Whenever he casts a spell, he can make a free Perform (Mime) check against a DC equal to his caster level plus the spell level of the spell he's casting but only if the spell has been made Silent and Invisible. If he succeeds, he can cast the spell as if he were one level higher. This increase stacks with Wall Builder. In addition, a Mime Mage can also spontaneously apply Silent Spell and Invisible Spell without an increase in casting time.

    Post Warforged Warden Variant: Rat Warden

    Warforged Warden Variant: Vile Warden

    In some cases, Warforged are cast outside of society due to their unusual traits. Those who go on to become Warforged Wardens often find themselves drawn to the shunned and ignoble creatures. They find a kindred spirit in their desolation.

    Hit Die: A Vile Warden has d8 hit dice.
    Saves: A Vile Warden has a low Fortitude save.
    Skills: A Vile Warden gains 6 + Int skills per level (×4 at level one). Add the following skills to the Vile Warden's class list: Bluff, Disable Device, Disguise, Gather Information, Open Lock, Search, and Sleight of Hand.

    Class Features
    The Vile Warden has all the standard Warforged Warden class features except as noted below.

    Fascinating . . .
    Some of your work here (Survivor/Applemancer/Realman/Pokémon Trainer...), coupled with the lack of noteworthy preliminary fluff in most cases gives an impression that you're not taking your own work seriously (to a point that I actually missed that one). Nevertheless, your Warforged Warden is the first case that actually makes the Warforged race interesting in my eyes.
    That said, I would suggest one change to the Warforged Warden - I would give it a special ability every 2 levels rather than 3, granting it a total of 3 abilities per category, thus making it feel more complete. Other than that, an excellent work.
