No worries.

The "Golarion Cleric"
( Not a cleric that happens to be in the golarion setting)
makes a perfectly functional Tier 2 Paladin substitute/replacement.

Tome of Ancient Lore from Complete Divine has a 90% chance each day to hold any arcane spell. It's a relic so you have to take True Believer (or be a theurge to use it). Even if you can't copy spells from it (though RAW only the location changes so you can still work to understand it one day then copy it the next), using a normal spellbook for your staples and this to have a good chance of getting any situational spell you want is solid. This is especially so if you leave slots open and prepare them as you meet problems since preparing spells from it takes half the time.

the tome of ancient lore (and copies made since the original left Boccob’s library) is cursed with a deliberately confusing, everchanging system of cross-referencing. The pages within the tome rearrange themselves, apparently at random. Finding anything useful by browsing is impossible,

Right up there with Apprentice(Spellcaster) and Warlock 12.

I could'a laid out a laconic :  " ... h e y ... duuuude ... "
but that might not be entirely accurate, see Dictum Mortuum
might (I'm not saying he is, he's been away for quite a while)
be a Druid, in which case saying :  " ... h e y ... druuuu-id ... "
would have been more appropriate.

So I err'd on the side of his last project (which could do in anyone really).

No idea about Sand giant, but if you're getting the same mega-buff idk it's OK.

Sure a PsyWar will work, it's much more complicated, and someone in the party
will blame something interesting you do on "psionics is broken".

Another option :
Cleric works as a bruiser just fine.  And you get all the 9s Full Casting goodies.
No in-combat healing.  Easier than PsyWar, could be mixed with Warblade.

Stone Giant has both details.
Abilities:    Str 27, Dex 15, Con 19, Int 10, Wis 12, Cha 11
+16 Strength, +4 Dexterity, +8 Constitution, +2 Wisdom.

If your DM will allow it, hey fine, it'll help low level survival for sure.
Half-Dragon template too, why not, I'll take that.

Stone Giant has Barbarian as a favored class.
Pounce Barb 1 is a euphemism for a specific acf
but whichever Barb 1 ability floats your boat, works.
Then go Warblade +X.
Perfectly acceptable build, doesn't need any massaging at all.

Plus you get to save money on arrows, as in you don't need them.
You can act like the Smart Hulk in Avengers Endgame. 
Rahr smash horsecart, seems gratuitous but hey I'll do it.

Aww c'mon you've got to change the title to :  Unearthed Arcana: Artifinally 4 - Electric Battleloo

Cantrip use goes Tomelock level 3+ >> Lore Bard level 6+ >> Arty#4 , until level 10 then Arty#4 is the best cantrip-er.
Love that ability.
It's something like half of your combat rounds, and massively useful out-of-combat.

Wolverine ... would flat-line for a while, and then burst up memory-less again ( uh -- gain ).

Phoenix ... but Xavier would caution against with good reason.

Silver Surfer ... the movie rights are separated which is stupid but whatevers

Yeah the "Halved-World" economy would be really weird but more functional than portrayed,
the "Half-Back-World" economy would be near starvation in no time,
lots of people would die ... except ... while having ultimate power Hulk (not Iron Man)
would have figured out how to do it (omni level Knowledge check of course he knows)
and in a way he could follow his own super-self directions.  Luckily Hulk didn't die.

President Hulk makes the "Half-Back-World" work ... Hulk Out kids !

Thanos wasn't quite the focus this go round.

Everything that happens before any of the 3 snaps, is A. O. K. and easily explained as duh infinity gauntlet, dude.
Anything that happens after the last one, is debatable.

The ending has had lots of gristmilling.
In the original comics, at one point a burnt to a crisp Nebula grabs the Gauntlet from the leftover body of super-Thanos.  There's a line in there, something like even a dullard could defeat the marvel U gods with the infinity gauntlet.
So in the movie Captain America "fixes" everything but it happens off screen.
I can see him easily accomplishing any part of the return of most of the gems, but not all of them.
Once he's down to just the Time Gem and the Space Gem, he isn't that much stronger than whichever beings it was that had the gems in the first place, taken away by Thanos.
So his last act with the Time Gem would be to send him away from it, to the correct capital T time (leaving the time gem behind in the time stream) ... Where+When he could hopefully cross your fingers deposit the Space Gem in exactly the right place, at approximately the right enough time, and with no interference right at his weakest and most critical moment.
I don't think Cap's character has ever been portrayed as up to that specific a theoretical thinking process.
For sure the Hollywood writers aren't up to the task, but the comics guys are.

Right. You can't take a Synad feat if you're a Githzerai.

May I suggest
3PW) Improved Natural Attack ... since it's right next door on the build
4PW) Tashalatora ... benefits start happening right away

Possible directions :
Tripping handbook
Lockdown handbook

From "Plunder and Peril"
9k gold for a horn that grants a +6 to bardic music level, but only for already known uses. Also grants Resist 10 Sonic.

What's the name of it?

Can you imagine my avatar with a gold horn going :  "LA LA LA hear more evil, hear more evil."
(and it working)

Hi FreeBeer.

I haven't looked at that closely in a long time.
Unearthed Arcana book has a short side box called Fractional BAB + Saves.
It didn't make it into the SRD.
In this case 2 medium BAB classes would have at level 3, +2.25 BAB rounded to +2.
It's almost always worth it to use the fractionals for BAB.
That would do it, but I didn't read it close enough to determine if it had the proper mention.
Some of these builds date back to 2005, and some info has been lost.

** edit **

Right.  So the Synad Multitask feat is Psionic,
and could be taken with the PsyWar1 bonus feat.
It looks like he reversed the 2 feats. 
Knock Down could be taken with the normal level 3 feat slot.

Good spot check there, FreeBeer.

Good points.
My response was ECL -ocentric.

I don't think any LA Buyoff and CR interactions, have even been queried before.
I don't have any idea how exactly that would be handled, but it looks rather straightforward.
It's a dm ruling to say it works just like regular PCs, but I can't imagine it working any different.

Lich generally advances by character class.
But 4 undead racial hit dice would be quite tasty. (which a dm can just fiat to be OK)
Wizard 16+1 is +1 CR
Wizard 17 + 4 Urhd is +1 CR too.
That would get a pile of hp, an Improved Turn Resistance feat and the mandatory Epic Spells feat going.
With the 1/2 Dragon bought off, it'd be the same CR, but obviously more dangerous.

Like the new avatar Nanshork.



always a good strategy


I was discussing a 16th level character.

No. No you weren't.


Where are the extra 5 levels from?

I explained that one post up under Step 2, and they aren't extra.

Erandis d'Vol is a 16th-level half-dragon elf wizard lich.

Half Dragon is LA+3.
Lich is LA+4.

16 + 3 + 4 = 23

Half Dragon racial prog --->
Lich racial prog --->

If you just go Wizard 17 for the oomph, that'll work too.
