Not coming in to show my interest since I know I'm not at a point I can do a PBP right now.  Just saying what I eventually figured out happened on my end and maybe that's useful for someone else.  Having both too many options and the feeling of "too much time to respond" can just lead to not responding.
Thank you! :)

I had a slight feeling something like that had happenned, one of the reasons I'm avoiding gestalt this time around.

It wasn't even gestalt for the Nintendo stuff, I just plain suck at making executive decisions for daily character abilities like spells, soulmelds, and so on.  Even before then I knew I'd never play a prepared caster again, but now I also know just anything that chooses only a few daily things from a decently-sized pool is going to screw me up.  Come to think of it, I should probably try to practice on my own or with a friend in person to work on that...

For things like that I just have a default setup and only change it if there's a situation that I'm actively prepping for (like underwater combat or something else unusual).

Completely done!

Was Tome of Radiance actually okay'd tho?

Nevermind I've been going over it for like 2 hours and I'm just all I can't deal with this  :???

Edit: I honestly can't think of a better character to play in a LoZ/Nintendo game than the Deku Scrub I already made...
So I guess I'm offering up Squeaks for the reboot.

I'm going to preface this by saying it's all Archon's fault.

I'm totally an unemployed dungeon miniboss. 
"Will stand in room waiting to fight heroes of legend for food."

Os, I posted some notes in Ice Beast.  Let me know your feedback before I actually make changes (don't worry, it's a bunch of nerfs and a grammar change).
Done.

Oh wow.

In the Planar Handbook there is a mount called a "Ur'Epona". Described as Descendants of the legendary horse Epona, they are basically regular horses with int 6 and plane shift 1/day.

Can I have one? (as my wild cohort - I'd be happy to lose the plane shift or something. Maybe even take effective level -2 or something for the better attributes).
Hmm, let's say no plane shift and -1 effective level.

Oh, how about Prime 32's Chozo Warrior?

http://minmaxforum.com/index.php?topic=29.0
Class seems ok (notice the power beam is not a touch attack, missile needs to hit primary target to knock them away, no to Arcane sight visor). The -4 to Cha is kinda weird considering the source though.

(yeah Samus officcially a lesbian or bi since her first incarnation, gets scantly clad women at her feet without even needing to take off her armor).


Obviously you've got enough players as it is--

But from checking the Gaiden chapter (and god I don't know why I stopped posting)--how on Earth did a tentacled monstrosity fit into things WITHIN the world? Glitch in the system? :lmao
I believe that was precisely your character theme, being Missigno  :P (off-topic, but in Dominions 4 somebody modded a nation whose whole theme is they spawning more and bigger glitches, the stronger of which then turn enemies into glitches, messing up things to the point certain areas start outputting negative values and stuff, good times).

WIP because everyone in the house is screaming.

Tome of Radiance is ok yes since I already have some familiarity with it but Squeaks Adventure sounds great.

Eh, not sure that the power suit should hinder Intimidate checks though. I'll have the sheet up Tuesday, but I'm doing it on myth-weavers.

I'm a construct, I don't need food.   :P

Don't have time to edit Ice Beast now, I'll do it later.

Hmm... Horses haven't got much by way of natural attacks (no Primary attacks!)

Can I switch out Run for Shape Soulmeld (Astral Vambraces) and then take Bind(Hands) when it hits 6HD?

Or does anyone else know a good way to gain a primary natural attack for a animal companion who is lacking in this area?

Multiattack? Maybe just buy a Graft that grants a Natural Weapon for it?
Like Raking Tentacle, 5k, replaces any limb, deals 1d6 for Large. Make Epona a creature of nightmares.

Alternatively, buy some Gloves of Man and a Greatsword? Too expensive.
I think Grafted Weapon is a Illithid Graft in FF which attaches any manufactured weapon to a limb. Replaces hand
Monk's Belt?  :lol

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Right then, I don't even qualify for Lightweight because of 14 con.

Grafts are expensive; also I'm not sure a horse has spare limbs to replace with a tentacle.

Ok to switching non-racial feats around, it's something I often do with stock monsters myself.

Might just be the fact it's after midnight, but I think the crunch is done. Just gotta do equipment.

My character might take a bit, I'm revising Ice Beast with Os because it needs it IMO.

And then I might make another character sheet anyway because I started thinking about it.

Time to go to bed half an hour after I should have been asleep and lay there thinking about this stuff for who knows how long.   :banghead

Making a post to compile the characters so far:

Ketaro with Squeaks the sneaky deku.
Clanjos with Saursari the minish warlock.
Archon with Sir Corran, not-Link #1.

Nanshork brewing up an unemployed ice miniboss from space.
SorO_Lost will probably be not-Link #0.
YuweaCurtis building up not-Samus.
VennDygrem planning up an electric rat.

That's two melees, two roguish, two ranged, Nanshork's ice elemental can go lots of ways, and zero healers.

Luckily the setting gives me an excuse to be generous with restorative items, since again nobody seems to be bringing anything that can fix the wounded.  :P

Hmph. I was going for a "Hylian Knight" archetype.

My character is much too heavy cavalry to be straight link.

But it's a moot point, mostly.

Nanshork was bothering me to make a character, so should it be needed for some inscrutable reason I can delevel Myriam there. :p

I can't think of much video game inspiration that involves healing, but I can think of plenty that involves destruction and stealth!

Blame video games for our violent tendencies!  :P

I was also inspired by owning weird items that allow one to solve puzzles

If we stay the same level I'll use the same sheet.
