Fiend of Possession Handbook [update]

(1/2) > >>

popanas:
This Handbook will threat about a prestige class that I really love, the Fiend of Possession. This class is a ultimate class made to buff your comrades and manipulate everything. This guide will firstly discuss the entry techniques, then the abuses that this class can put up. It is based on this older version of the handbook http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=10938

First post will refer to a class portfolio
Second post will refer to races
third post will refer to entry tricks (Other than race)
Fourth post will refer to builds (Might refer to later post if I need more space)
Fifth post will refer to diverse Item enchantment that you will be able to procure and how broken they are.

(I will format and modify that soon)

FoP Abilities

(click to show/hide)The ability to possess both objects and people is the main focus of the FoP.

Level 1-2 Possess an object and grant an enhancement bonus to an object equal to the FoP level.

Level 3-4 Control a possessed object and animate it as an animate object spell.

Level 4-6 Possess people, grant bonuses to a host, and eventually control the host’s movements for short periods of time.
Entry Requirements:
-Outsider Type with the Evil Subtype
-Base Will save of +5
-Hide and Knowledge arcane

The outsider (evil) type is the main stumbling block for entry into this class.  Unfortunately there is no easy way to meet this requirement in one section, so I will go through base classes, races, and entry tricks to meet this requirement.


Base Classes

There a large number of base classes that can help with entry into the FoP.  The main consideration at this point is to select classes with a high will save and the necessary skills to gain entry into the class.  It is also important to note that to reach the base Will save of +5 as earlier as possible, at least 2 different classes should be taken.

Prime Classes

(click to show/hide)Bard/Beguiler:  High skills including Hide and Knowledge arcane.  Both also have access to Charm person (Bard 2/Beguiler 1) which can facilitate entry into the Mindbender PrC.

Cleric: Another core staple, this class offers Knowledge arcane and the ability to turn undead with can be useful for a number of Divine metamagic tricks.  Specific domains can greatly enhance of number of builds.  This class also offers a number of direct entries into the FoP that will be discussed in later sections.

Dread necromancer: Another strong choice that has both hide and knowledge arcana skill access, with rebuke undead thrown in.

Marshall: Decent number of skill points with knowledge arcana.  For a cha based FoP a single minor aura can be a strong boon to the parties spell casters or the FoP’s social skills.

Psion (Telepath): Psionics in general are good option for a possessing FoP since they can freely manifest powers while possessing a creature (spell casting requires still, silent, and eschew materials).  This class also allows entry into the best complimentary PrC available to the FoP, the thrallherd.

Wizard/Wu Gen/ Archivist: All provide a bonus feat, have knowledge arcana, and charm person at level 1.
Secondary Classes

(click to show/hide)Ardent: A psion that has access to powers based on manifestor level, not level progression.  Good if you want high level powers and FoP levels.  Knowledge Arcana

Binder: Binding is compatible with the FoP, if you can find something you like.

Human Paragon:  While not a base class, it can be taken at level 1.  Going Paragon 1/ Casting class 1/ Paragon 2 gives you the Will save of +5, 2 caster levels, and another bonus feat.  Best of all the paragons, it gets to pick his class skills and one skill to always count as a class skill.  This has potential to be top tier, but human only drops it into the second.  Other paragons exist (Gnome, Tiefling) that have a good will save, but none are as good as the human paragon.

Paladin: All good saves and divine grace can really boost your saves to fend off dismissal and banishment. An evil variant from unearthed arcana or the SRD is more fitting.

Spellthief: Lots of skill points with both Hide and knowledge arcana as class skills.  The masterspell thief feat can also be useful to boost caster level with some builds.  The only reason I don’t place this in the primary classes is both bard and beguiler also grant the charm person spell in the first 2 or 1 levels respectively.

Warlock: Level 1 will net you an all day buffs and the knowledge arcana skill.  Unfortunately they had to go and ruin the warlock for the FoP by stating the warlock’s spell-like abilities require somatic components.  This is particularly troubling since spell-like abilities do not usually require somatic components so there is no way to remove them.  The only way around this is the savage specifies feat supernatural transformation that converts a spell-like ability into a supernatural ability.  Unfortunately the FAQ ruled even innate spell-like abilities obtained from the innate spell feat are not qualified for supernatural transformation.  Eldritch blast will still work since it is not an invocation, but all of the blast invocations are out.
Third Tier Classes:  Mainly a list of good will save classes that don’t off much more.

Divine Mind, Dragon Shaman, Druid   , DuskBlade,   
Favored Soul, Healer, Hexblade, Knight,           
Lurk, Mindblade, Monk, Sorc  ,   
Warmage, Wilder           

Other Classes

Bloodlines: A real power house.  They advance all level based effects by the number of levels in bloodlines.  This ability is great for boosting the FoP’s ability to enchant weapons.  3 levels of bloodlines push the total bonus granted by a FoP to weapons to a +9, allowing for the Everdancing epic weapon property.  This will be discussed in more detail later, but allows you to be your own flying sword.  Additionally this class helps with PrC entry for some spell caster and manifestor classes.  PrC stacking with this class will be discussed later.

Magic of Incarnum Classes: There abilities may well place them in the secondary tier of classes if there is a meld that interests you, but I don’t know the system sufficiently enough to recommend any examples.  It is important to note that the “Planar Chasuble” soul meld has gained much attention in relation to the FoP.  The short list description of this power stats it grants you a subtype based on a plane you select, but this is inaccurate.  The full power description stats it gives you an alignment trait and the extraplanar subtype.  Unfortunately it does not grant an alignment subtype.

popanas:
Races

The most obvious choice of race is an outsider with the evil subtype.  This grants a quick fulfillment of FoP requirements, but is not always an option in low level campaigns.  Here is a list of races that can make it into the FoP PrC one way or another.

LA+0 (click to show/hide)Human: For all the standard reasons: bonus feat, extra skills, and any favored class.  This also opens up the option of human paragon.  The Champions of Valor book have also made the Otherworldly feat available to humans, converting them to outsiders (more on this later).

Deep Imaskari, Elf, Spirit Folk (Faerun Races): These races are useful only in that they qualify for the otherworldly feat transforming them into outsiders.  Note though, that otherworldly is available to other races by DM approval.

Illumian (Races of Destiny): This human subtype race losses the bonus feat and skill points, but gains power sigils in exchange.  The most useful of which is the +2 bonus to caster level, but cannot go over your character level.  This paired with Practiced spell caster can cover all 6 levels of FoP.  Additionally they can gain a word of power that functions like divine metamagic and can be used with heighten spell for other PrC entry requirements.

Neraphim: (Planar manual) No level adjust and an outsider, enough said.
LA+1
(click to show/hide)Aasimar/Plane Touched/ Tiefling: Forgotten realms races that are outsiders.

Divine Minion of Sebek: This template gives you theevil subtype if you already have the fiendish template.It's completely useless for us. It's only available online here. http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mb/20050209a

Dvati: This race is one soul in two bodies allowing a FoP to effectively possess two targets for the price of one.  Prime32’s original thread is here on the topic.

http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=3364.0
LA+2 (click to show/hide)Diabolus (Dragon Compendium): This race is an outsider with the Law subtype.  They only have a +1 LA, but are most useful with the divine minion template from the wizards’ web enhancement.  This +1 LA template converts a creature’s subtype to match the alignment of thier deity.

Divine minion of Set: same as the one for sebek, but cost one more level.  http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mb/20050209a
ECL 3 (1HD + 2LA)
(click to show/hide)
Phaerimm, Hatchling (Lost Empires of Faerun): These flying sea cucumbers are useful for spell casters.  The FoP can perform mental actions while possessing, which means spells need to be still, silent, and without materials.  This race has sorcerer progression based on its HD and casts all of its sorcerer spells as spell-like abilities effectively.  You don’t have to continue advancing your racial progression, jump out and grab some classes and FoP.

Bladeling is just like the diabolus, but can be found in MMII and has the lawful subtype.  Unfortunately it got pushed from a +1 LA to +2 with the 3.5 conversion (Thanks McPoyo), giving you a net +3 LA with the Divine minion template addition as above.

ECL 4 (2HD +2 LA)
(click to show/hide)Abyssal Maw/ Abyssal Skulker (MMII): These are both unusually looking outsiders that you probably don’t want to walk around as.  The two outsider HD grant a +3 will save requiring only 1 class level before entry into the FoP.  The skulker is a more attractive race (pun intended) since it has hide as a class skill.

Kaorti (Fiend Folio): This is the best outsider race in my opinion for the FoP.  First off the Kaorti are not born, they are produced from the living when another Kaorti implants an egg into the target.  Some creatures that undergo the transformation retain their memories and go rogue.  It is perfectly possible for a good aligned character to be converted into a Kaorti and retain their alignment.  They still gain the evil subtype, so they will count as both good and evil for the purpose of spells and effects.

ECL over 4
(click to show/hide)Phaerimm, Juvenile ECL 7: The next age category for the above hatchling.  The main advantage the juvenile gives is telepathy of 100ft at the cost of another +1LA.  The HD will be good outsider HD by the time we are done with him, and grant more spell casting so it can be worth it if not going mindbender.

Legion Devils ECL 8 (Fiendish Codex II): Outsiders with the evil and baatezu subtype (grants telepathy) that have 3HD and a +5LA.  The key feature is the bonuses they get when other legion devils are near by.  This trick gets interesting with planar binding, leadership, or the thrallherd PrC to start stacking up your bonuses.

Sharn ECL 9 (Anauroch: Empire of Shade): These aberrations have 4HD and +5 LA and a whole lot more.  They have perfect flight, 3 heads, 9 arms, 6 levels of sorcerer and favored soul casting, and +8 to +10 to each stat.  They are very impressive creatures.  Oh, and with the update in Empire of Shade, all their spells are cast as if still, silent, and without materials like the phaerimm.

Dwarf, Midguard ECL 12 (Frostburn): This is your crafting outsider.  This dwarf looks fairly normal compared to the other outsiders, plus has the ability to craft any armor, ring, weapon, or wondrous item without prerequisites.

Succubus ECL 12: The evil outsider that first comes first to my mind with all the Fiend classes.  The Succubus has 6HD with a +6 LA.  She comes with a number of useful spell-like abilities and an energy draining kiss (great with necrotic focus to use the drain ability through the possessed weapon).

Special mention

The half-fiend template might be a tempting way to gain the outsider type, but has a steep +4 LA.  Luckily wizards allowed you to break this template down into 4 levels and you don’t need to take all 4.  Even better, level 1 makes you an outsider.

Half-fiend:  http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/sp/20031010a

Also a good look at the ritual of alignment is a good idea as it can give any outsider, like an aasimar, the evil subtype for a very small price of 56,000 gold pieces
and 2,240 XP

FoP ENTRY TACTICS

Now that we got some possible races and base classes to work with, it is time to work on entry tactics.  Besides playing an actual outsider (evil) race, there are some alternative methods of entry.  The first is the otherworldly feat pared with the Ritual of alignment.

Otherworldly with ritual of alignment
(click to show/hide)The Otherworldly feat is a regional feat in the Player’s Guide to Faerun.  This feat changes a creature’s type into an outsider opening a number of races up.  First low level races without LA are now available which offers more class levels.  Secondly higher ECL races with racial HD suddenly get better when their HD is converted to outsider HD.  Obviously this requires access to Forgotten realms material.  Also note special permission is required by the DM to take this feat if you are not a Deep Imaskari, Elf, Human, or Spirit Folk.  If this is not available, fall back on the single level of the Half-fiend template class.

The next part is the Ritual of Alignment found in savage species.  This ritual has a +0 LA attached to it and grants an alignment subtype.  It is best to attach the same subtype as your alignment, but opposing alignments are possible.  The problem with this ritual is that it costs 56,000gp and 2,240xp.  A quick check of the Character Wealth by Level table on page 135 in the DMG shows that a level 11 character has 66,000gp.  This is a good option if you are starting at 11th level or above and want a low LA race (assuming your DM lets you spend all your starting capital as if you had it at level 3).  At lower levels or lower cash games you will need to work something out with your DM to get early access to the ritual.

If these options are available to you, you can pick any two of the base classes above and move right into the FoP class.
Cleric Entries
(click to show/hide)Cleric 5 or 7/ Divine Disciple 5 (Players guide to Faerun)

The 5th level of Divine disciple transforms the character into an outsider with the alignment subtype matching their deity.  The most difficult requirement is you need access to 4th level divine spells.  These can be acquired at level 7, or at level 5 with early entry tricks like sanctuary spell or divine heighten magic.  The skill requirement of 8 prevents even earlier entry.

Cleric 5/ Dweomerkeeper 4

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/we/20040522a

The dweomerkeeper (DK) can be found in the complete divine web enhancement and is part of the well known Cheater of Mystra build.  Select Mystra or Thoth as your patron deity with the magic and rune domains.  The rune domain will grant the scribe scroll feat needed for entry into the DK.  Then take the feats Able Learner, Magical Training, Extend Spell, Persistent Spell, and divine metamagic (if you are not Illumian).

The spell you want to cast as a supernatural effect (using the DK’s ability) is a persistent Infernal Transformation, Lesser. With this spell active, you are an outsider with the baatezu, evil, and lawful subtype.  Not only does this qualify for the FoP, but also grants Telepathy of 100 feet thanks to the baatezu subtype.  Also being a supernatural effect, the spell cannot be dispelled.  You can cast the spell sooner, but being impervious to dispel effects would be very useful.

Wu gen 1/ Cleric 4 is also useful if regional feats are not available to gain access to arcane spell casting and a bonus metamagic feat.

Melee Entry
(click to show/hide)Divine Minion 1/Full BAB Class 7/ Scourage of Chaos 3 (Bestiary of Krynn, Thanks Nunkuruji)

The scourage of chaos grants you a chaos subtype and outsider status on the third and final level of the class.  The pairing with divine minion can convert that to an evil subtype.  Just add you favorite full BAB class with a good will save.
Wizard Entry
(click to show/hide)Illurian 1 half-fiend template class/ Dread necromancer 1/ Wizard 7

Versatile spell caster, Extend Spell, Persistent Spell

Versatile spell caster allows use to use two spells of one level to cast a higher level spell.  The FAQ has cleared this for casting spells of a level higher than you currently have access to.  The requirements include the ability to cast spontaneously which is covered by the dread necromancer level.  The wizard can therefore use two level 4 spell slots to memorize draconic polymorph (level 5) which can be made persistent.  Persistent spell can be applied using the Illurian word of power with dread necromancer rebuke undead.  Polymorph will grant you the type and more importantly the subtype of your new form.  The otherworldly feat can be used in play of the half-fiend level if it is available.  The outsider type cannot be gained through use of a low LA outsider race, unless you can find one that has wizard as a favored casting class.  There are regional feats to add one arcane spell casting class to your list of favored classes, but if you have access to these you can probably access otherworldly.

Just a little note here, the faster you get into FoP, the better. Some of the alternatives ways to get into the class aren't worth it, most of the time your better off with an outsider evil race, like Kaorti.

Builds

THE FoP

This is the most dedicated Fiend of Possession build.  Everything is focused on you getting around without ever making yourself seen.  Any race is possible, therefore I will stick to 16 levels for the base build if you don’t have access to the above entry tricks.

The Psion

Psionics are perfect since most of them are purely mental actions, which the FoP can perform while possessing an object or person.  There are two main options.  Go for the straight forward telepath which is more versatile but losses out on high level powers.  Or go for the limited power list and play an ardent.  I listed the Illumian as the race of choice, but this depends on wether your DM uses psion/magic transparency.  The +2 caster level would work great for your manifestor level.

Phaerimm’s have the nifty ability to cast their sorcerer spells as spell-like abilities without somantic, vocal, or material components.  Use the ritual of alignment as before.

I originally did not think warlock would work well since the invocations are spell-like abilities that require somantic components.  Notice though that eldritch blast is not an invocation but is a spell-like ability.  Bingo, you can blast while in the object, just not add an invocations on the fly.  Luckily Hellfire warlock also saves the day by boosting your damage by 12d6 (don’t forget bloodlines).

Theoretical builds

Cleric and a half

The idea here is to be a full cleric/wizard and a FoP.  We are going to use the usual Other Worldly/ritual of alignment for entry to FoP.  Afterwards we are going to enter the Eldrich Master PrC from dragon mag #280.  It does not progress spell casting, but grants a bonus spell slot 1 level higher than you can currently cast and bonus metamagic feat at level 3.  Add this slot to cleric to pick up level 2 spells.  Then at level 4 it lets you add a spell list from another casting class to your exsisting spell casting classes.  These spells are all cast as arcane spells regardless of how the spells are usually cast.  That means you cleric is now both an arcane and divine casting class.  Use Mystic Theurge then to double progress the class.  You end up with 9th level spells cast off of one stat and set of spells slots, but come from both the cleric list and another list of your choice (probably wizard).  Use Arcane thesis for orb of force of another spell of choice to get free still and silent spell added for free.

Cohorts

Fiends of Possession make optimal cohorts for characters of the appropriate alignment.  The key feature is their ability to augment your character and remain out of sight.  One of the biggest problems I have with leadership is picking a cohort that is useful, out of the way, and does not overshadow other party members.

The Fixer

This cohort can make any armor, ring, weapon, or wonderous item, plus buy and sell things at the best prices.  You can leave him at home when you want or take him on the go.  The xp mechanic with leadership makes the cohort useful even after he hits his max level, just continue to burn the xp or hide it with the link below.

Some little tricks

Equipment

(click to show/hide)Animated Object to possess.  Later levels of FoP can animate objects, pick something with a crazy hardness to possess.  I like Obdurium (page 35 Stronghold builders guide) that has a listed hardness of 30 and 60 hp per inch.  Now add in Oerthblood from dragon 351, a material you can alloy another metal to double its hardness and increase it HP by 1.5x.  Pure Ore (Dragon #347) can be added to that to again double HP and hardness.  You can still stack on a hardness spell to further boost it, not to mention an enchancement bonus.  Now just pick your favorite heavy armor.. But, you must know that your animated object will have a fixed hp bases on his sized after being animated. But a hardness of 120 is like... hard to pass.

Rod of the Embassy (Arms and Equipment Guide p125): Best 20,000gp ever spent.  If you choose an extraplanar outsider as your race, this rod will make you count as if you were one your home plane.  For most outsiders, that will make you immune to dismiss, banishment, and so on.  Kaorti get the added bonus on not having to deal with their allergy to the material plane.

Weapon Properties to buy or produce through FoP:

(click to show/hide)Bane: A +1 property that can be used in every encounter, just ID the creature in question. To ID it, there is the enchantment Fiercebane (+1 from MIC). It glow if near a specific creature type.

X Elemental power (DMG2) : +2 to +5 How about having a Elemental serving you? (Counting the synergy tax.)

Fly (Magic of Faerun) : +1 How about gaining your fourth level ability at the first level of the FoP class? But it is better! You have your object HP and not the animated object HP. It replace the Ever Dancing epic property.

Lucky(MIC) : +1 Or how to never miss. The FoP can change the enchantment he procure with a free action. So, how about I put in on and off until I hit my target? Good with vorpal against a creature that you cannot touch without a natural 20.

Energy surge (MIC) : A +2 total for 4d6 of the energy type you want. A white dragon? Let's make fire damage. Oh! It was only albinos? Ok, let's do another type of damage, because we are awesome.

Ever Dancing (Epic): A +8 enhancement, but you can continuously fight as the sword.

Necrotic Focus(MIC): A +3 that is rather useful for Succubus FoP’s to add their energy drain attack to the weapon’s effects.

Spellblade(source unknown): 6,000gp to make yourself immune to one targeted spell.  Again useful to prevent banishment.

Buy a sizing(5000 MIC) spiked chain and enchant it wirlwind(+1 MIC) plus anything you want. You are now an army killer.

Profane (MIC) : +1 if a living being you hate takes you, change for that and make him pay.

Brilliant Energy(SRD) : +4 You were capable to pass in walls, now you can while staying in you favourite weapon.

Any intelligent item : How about the item activates its power by itself while you do something else? And it is a good way to gain telepathy.
Armor enchantments

(click to show/hide)Vanishing (MIC) : +3 that makes you completely undetectable for... As long as you want.

Xblock (MIC) : +2 to give a DR 5 against a type of weapon. (bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing)

Energy Immunity (MIC) : +2 to immune you and your wielder to a energy type.

Great invulnerability (10/magic) or (15/magic) (Epic) : +4 or +5 to give a DR 10 or 15. Good, but could be better.

Fortification(MIC) : make sneak attacks against you harder.

Proof against transmutation (CArc) : +5 to immune you to all transmutation, if you want.

Time buttress (MIC): +5 to ignore everything during a round, and the MIC version let you play during that moment. I see an infinite uses of that.


Feat

(click to show/hide)Good Karma (CS): Make your foes attack you, I mean the item you possess. You give free opportunity attack to your allies. (You just need more luck reroll.) Just to mention, if you posses your opponent, you can make him hit himself.



Other things to notice

By level 5 you are the best field controller. Why? Because you can be the terrain your foes are on and animate it. "Oops, I made a pit under you. I'll fix that." Is a good way to buries your opponents alive. Animate the air and create a vacuum.
