Alright yall. I slogged through all 14 pages of this. About reserves of strength, I'm with TML on this one. RAI its clearly supposed to only exceed normal CL caps by 3, not completely uncap the spell and add a measly +3cl to your existing one. Beware cheesy interpretations, though RAW I will concede its ambiguous.
Also, if we use the bloodlines as they were intended (i.e. as described in PBMC's handbook), we still get 20 levels to work with
My guess would be that because it's "look at the table" and the table stops at 20, so does the progression. You can't get Epic things until you are epic, even if you qualify.
Unless it has a formula somewhere that is hopefully consistent between epic and non-epic (meaning you really don't need to use the epic ruling)
this had better not actually work. seriously, that's eff'ed up.
No worries. I still hold the world record eldritch blast at 42d6+14d6
asdfjkl is right about the eldritch blast (which is an SLA) and the other SLAs not gaining the CL boost. Neither are spells
the XP to buy bloodline levels is 3,000+6,000+12,000. Incidentally, exactly the amount of XP gained by investing XP in an Item Familiar. Coincidence?
Man, I love you right now. I'm adding that to the handbook
(the information is already in there but I just love the way you put it)
Sane DMs are the stuff of freakin' legend.
I'm definately not. I'm way off my rocker
yeah, I can't image an unbuffed caster with no magic items (cause we MDJ'ed his ass) surviving 141d6 of anything.
I've got one like that. In fact, the MDJ could get that juicy 1% to strip you of all casting period and this guy would just laugh and say 'is that all ya got?' Granted he is a mildly TO BBEG. See? I really am nuts
optimizing tea is like optimizing kobolds: at first, "what the crap is this? I can't use this shit! it doesn't work well at all!". after one begins to truely understand it, however.... you find yourself hard pressed not to automatically include it in everything.
The Aspect of Atropus that the party actually fights is described as "a small fraction of his will".This has 66HD.
I'd still be able command him (unless he is immune to turning)
I prefer the ancient viking method of solving arguments. assuming logic doesn't work, both sides get plastered and start beating the crap out of eathother until no-one can remember what we were arguing about. tends to work. if the argument is later recalled, or brought up again, the one who won the fight was right.
May I suggest this is NOT a good way to mediate a marriage?? Arguing with women is a lot different...
wait a minute, did we just make a caster that out damages an ubercharger all day long? without the drawbacks?
but this was with the pre-thousands CLs...
Hunter's Eye grants 12601d6 sneak attack. What's the record again?
I hold it for non-casters (53d6+20). You did break the caster-allowed record though
improvisation. gain a pool equal to 2x caster level, use up to 1/4 of it on any one skill check.how many records just got broken?
All the skill check ones, I think
