Undead Character options
« on: June 16, 2018, 09:35:07 PM »
My character has become a level 6 undead wizard. I have sustained a hit to almost every stat because of it. Oh, and I'm rotting and parts of my body are falling off.

So, what would you guys recommend doing in a situation like this (other than rerolling). My spells are not terribly gimped, only my DC, so I can still be effective in combat. Are there any feats, classes that I can dip into? Are there any rules that I can take advantage of other than the standard undead traits?

My DM has allows grafting of limbs and things to myself. Are there any spells that can help with making these grafts permanant?

I'm all ears. Cheers.

So does it give you any abilities or immunities?

Fighter 1 is a decent dip for anyone, more so you.

iirc the earliest Fighter Eldritch Knight handbooks
talk about Not using Int, as a workable possibility.

Leugren's list of spells got saved from the wotc collapse.
This one ---> http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?471765-A-Compilation-of-Useful-Spell-Lists-(Leugren)/page2&p=6746674&viewfull=1#post6746674
and the one below it, don't require Int as much as other spells.
Rituals work too of course.

It may take a few more levels of Wizard to get a better
balance of spells, given your undead-y-ness.

Immune to Poison, Charm, Exhaustion; no need to sleep or breathe; -2 INT, +2 CON, -6 DEX, -2 STR, -2 WIS, -2 CHA.

Now, my DM is also allowing the grafting of limbs and things onto myself. I mean, Who doesn't want 6 arms? The possibilities here are endless.
