. Anyway, the main issue I am having in understanding the "2HD Outsider, which grants skill points, feats, BAB, and Base Save Bonuses". Can someone please clarify what this means.
It means that you automatically have two "levels" of outsider with this character. This, in addition to your level adjustment (if you have one), is added to your class levels to find your effective character level (ECL).
The traits of an outsider level, according to the SRD
are as follows:
d8 Hit dice
+1 BAB per level (like a fighter)
All saves are good (like a monk)
8+int skill points per level.
So for your character, that would add:
+3 to all saves...
40+(5 times INT) skill points...
In addition, you add 2 to your level to find how many feats you have.
