My character for Bowen's RHoD game:

Original (now obsolete)
(click to show/hide)


Master of Nine version
Cl. Cleric 1/Crusader 4/Warblade 1/Cobra-strike Monk 1/Mo9 5 (game is only going till 12th level)

Domains: Time and Darkness (free Blind Fight and Improved Initiative)
Feats: IUS & Dodge (monk), Adapative Style (retrain Stone Power to this), other feats unchanged.

Gain: LOTS of known and granted manuevers at levels 8-12, several stances, and end up with IL 10 for Crusader and 9 for Warblade at 12th, and also all the other goodies of the Mo9 like Dual Stance.
Lose: Earth and Animal Devotion, Stone Power (usefulness becomes marginal as levels increase, anyway, but Adaptive Style is complete shit...). This will also use up almost ALL of my skill points on mostly useless crap, but... Flumph isn't exactly a skill-based character, anyway. I could also just dump charisma, since I won't be using Turning to fuel devotion feats, which is actually a plus...

Another Mo9 version that doesn't completely dump Wisdom.

I'm disappointed that Flumph's party role isn't: "running around catching party members when they inexplicably fall from great heights".
He could perform quite well at said job, given his DR and Delayed Damage Pool.  :D (I didn't realise that that weird jellyfish thing in OotS was called a Flumph... until I googled it just now. :P )

Edit: Just moving this guy from a dead game so he doesn't get lost. I put a lot of freakin' work into him...

Aboleth 2/Wizard (Focused Illusionist) 1/Master Specialist 2/Shadowcraft Mage 2

Progression
Aboleth 1 Aboleth body, Amphibious, Memory of the eons, Mysteryous Mind, +1 Str, +1 Int, Spell Focus: Illusion), Deceivingly Innocent Form, Heighten Spell (including flaws)
Wizard 1: +1 0th level spell slot, +1 1st level spell slot, Familiar
Aboleth 2 Ancient Mind, Mucus Cloud, +1 Con, +1 Cha, Metamagic School Focus (Illusion)
MS 1: +1 1st level spell slot, : +1 2nd level spell slot (now 1/2/1 instead of 4/3/2 for a 4th level wizard), Skill Focus (Spellcraft)(b)
MS 2: Expanded spellbook
SCM 1: FEAT
SCM 2:

Later
SCM 3:
Master Specialist 3: Greater SF
MS 4: +2 to "Will Disbelief" save DCs

Wants
reserve feat (summon elemental)
Sculpt Spell
would like Confusion as a known spell, but it is Enchantment, which I typically ban...

Maybe take a few notes from the summoner's handbook.

Notes: Has four tentacle attacks at 7th level, usable in his "harmless" form as well. Coupled with Knowledge Devotion (and Knowledge (eons), this could be a pretty decent attack routine for a "squishy caster".

Edit
Man... if the society mind used charisma as its key ability score for manifesting, it would be almost perfect to go with an aboleth... especially once the aboleth has its enslave ability. The loss of powers known doesn't hurt as much as with many manifesting classes, since you can change them daily.

Charger
Bind Andras, summon war horse. Cast Spikes on lance. Charge and Smite.
+12 (3bab+2charge+2enh+2str+3Cha) to hit, damage 2d6+28 (18-20/x20) plus mount's attack
Lances don't have wooden striking surfaces.  They were basically thick-shafted spears, with metal points. And how were you getting 2d6 base damage?

You still can't take Hathran any earlier than you could in a non-gestalt game (ie - 7th character level).

Doubled for charging from the back of a mount. I decided not to go with this, anyway.

I am also not taking this. I'm just going to keep it simple and go with the middle-aged support caster version. Although a wizard/archivist/hathran would of course be much more powerful, I just don't have the time needed to manage such a character's spell list/books.


So... I was looking over the Winged Watcher spell (and specifically the Polymorph subschool stuff), and it looks like you lose all abilities, including class features, when you use these spells... That really sucks...

Edit (using the rest of this post to list spells I might use later): Wild Runner looks pretty good, though. You change into a centaur for 10 min/lvl, but keep access to all of your normal abilities, including spellcasting. It's a 4th level druid spell in Spell Compendium.

Sandblast: lvl 1, 10' arc, 1d6 subdual and stun for 1 round (Reflex save)

In a big fight with lots of area spells being thrown around, Decomposition might be a decent spell to use. It causes "bleeding" wounds (3 points per round) for 1 round/lvl. 2nd level spell in SC.

Saltray (2nd level): close range ray, 1d6/2lvls damage, stuns for 1d4 rounds on failed Fort save.
Kelpstrand found in same link above. Also 2nd level.

Bottle of Smoke could make for fast movement for the party (or at least some of them). 3rd level druid/ranger, 1 hr/lvl, but awesome because the duration can be "paused" by putting the horse back in the bottle. Also leaves a Wall of Smoke-like effect in its wake. Awesome spell.

Giant's Wrath is a decent 3rd level spell. Throw "boulders" for 1 rnd/lvl which do 2d6+CL, and get +CL boost to hit. Range increment is 120'.

Infestation of Maggots looks decent. 1d4 con damage for 1 rnd/2CLs. 3rd level. They do get a save to end the spell every round, though.

Planned Progression:
through 7th, continue binder and spirit shaman
after 7th, start taking master of the yuirwood
include at least 4 anima mage levels if divine variant allowed
Possible feats to pick up: Expel Vestige, Fell Drain, Chain Spell, Invisible Spell

You could slip your first Anima Mage level in before MotY. It would get you that much closer to the goal after coming back from MotY.

You'd have to blow one skill point getting that 10th rank of Survival cross class, but it might be worth it.
