Most of the house rules are RIGHT HERE
for now. I might copy some or all of it over here later.
"Wild" magic rules:
11/18/09 Reformatted the House Rules to be easier to read, and fixed links to Diplomacy and a couple of other things.
11/19/09 Modified the feats a bit, deleting a few obsolete prereqs and feats. The main change was bundling the Quick Draw feat into the Combat Looting feat.
11/20/09 Added information on partial saves, and magic item scaling and levels. Also made minor changes to the fighter, increasing his skill points, adding a few class skills, and increasing his uses of the Combat Experience feature. Also changed the specific ranges for the Wild Magic effect, but not the statistics.
1/6/10 Changed the way scrolls work, and added restrictions on magic item crafting.
1/20/10 Toned down my fighter a bit, after reading feedback on the Tome fighter. He can no longer take tome Combat feats as bonus feats before 12th level. Still debating this with myself.
1/21/10 Copied the Time Sphere here, and finalized its abilities.
1-25 fails entirely, 26-75 means it works normally, 76-95 doubles in strength, and 96-100 something weird happens.
For saving throws:
Levels with a "good" save add +0.5 for every level, with a +2 for the first time you add a class with that good save (but not if you add a level of another class with that good save). For the levels with "bad" saves, you add +1/3. For BAB:
Just take the fractions for each level and add them up. So a wizard gets +0.5 BAB per level, a cleric gets +0.75, and a fighter gets +1, etc.
You always round these down, but you have to keep track of the fraction left over for when you next level up. Magic items that just provide a bonus scale with your levels according to the chart found here.
They "cost" the amount of whatever the least magic item of that type costs (So "magic armor" costs 1000 gp, plus the mundane item's cost). Items that provide a bonus to an ability score start at +2 (and 4000 gp), but do scale through odd numbers as you level (so at level 9 they'd give you a +3). Items that provide a competence bonus to a skill start at +5 (and 2500 gp) and provide a bonus equal to your character level (or 5, whichever his higher). Time Sphere
Three times per day, you can activate any power from this Sphere as a swift or immediate action, regardless of its normal casting time. Also, you can terminate any effect you create from your Sphere prematurely as a Free action. Abilities based on psionic powers are fully augmented up to the maximum effect possible for your manifester level (your character level), as normal for psi-like abilities.Character level/Power1st Deja Vu

Just so I don't have to look this up again...Natural Empath [Skill]
You read people like books. (This is a Skill feat that scales with your ranks in Sense Motive.)
Benefits: You gain a +3 bonus to Sense Motive checks.
4: You can quickly size up potential opponents. If you succeed on a Sense Motive check as a free action, opposed by their Bluff, you can tell if they're an even match (their CR equals your character level), an easy challenge (their CR is 1-3 less than your level), irrelevant (their CR is 4 or more less than your level), stronger (their CR is 1-3 higher than your level), or overwhelmingly powerful (their CR is 4 or more higher than your level). You can use this ability once on a particular creature every 24 hours.
9: If you succeed on a Sense Motive check, opposed by Bluff, you know your opponent's alignment. If you beat their Bluff by 20 or more, you can read their surface thoughts, as if during the third round of detect thoughts.
14: You have an uncanny intuition for when people are interested in you. Any time someone uses a remote spell or effect, like scrying, to examine you, you know you're under observation and if you make a Sense Motive check that beats their Bluff check, you know some details about them: if you've met them before, you recognize them, but if not, you get a basic idea of their reasons for their interest in you. Similarly, if you use Sense Motive on someone influenced by an enchantment effect, you can find out who created the effect with a Sense Motive check opposed by the controller's Bluff, getting the same information.
19: You know what people are going to do before they do. Any time someone you're aware of attacks you, make a Sense Motive check opposed by their Bluff: if you succeed, you get a free surprise round.

Chain Lightning: this acts as a Lightning Bolt (and may be bounced, as below), except that every time a target takes damage from it (whether they make the save or not), another smaller bolt shoots out to another target of your choice within 50 feet. This requires a Ranged Touch Attack, and if the target is struck, they take half the original damage. If a bolt bounces over someone multiple times, multiple secondary bolts are launched. An individual can be hit by the primary bolt and one or more secondary bolts (though not secondary bolts that are caused by them getting struck) in the same casting.
Cone of Cold: this works like normal, except the entire area of effect is coated in ice (functioning like a Grease spell that is automatically Dispelled, square-by-square, by Fire effects) and anyone who fails the save takes 1d6 Dexterity damage.
Firestorm: this spell functions as normal, except that it lasts for as long as the Warmage concentrates. The area of effect cannot be moved, however.
Flame Arrow: when cast, all arrows fired from within 50' of the caster during the next round deal an additional amount of Fire Damage equal to 2d6 plus her Caster Level.
Lightning Bolt: when cast by a Warmage, Lightning Bolts may bounce off surfaces, either at a 90 degree angle or 180 degrees straight back at the caster, caster's choice.
Mass ___: the spell works just as normal, except it affects one subject per caster level.
Mass Polymorph: this works only on willing targets, affecting two subjects per caster level. The subjects are transformed into Trolls, effectively replacing their character sheets with the MM entry. They can think like themselves, retaining their alignments and memories, but don't actually retain their skills, feats, ability scores (even mental ones) or anything else. You don't get troll wizards and troll knights and troll thief-acrobats, you get trolls.
These trolls may, however, utter "Hurr hurr, I'm a (their original class)" as a free action. Troll wizards can be said to cast sleep (range: touch, material focus: a club, somatic component: make an attack roll) and Knock (range: touch, material focus: a club, somatic component: make a break check), likewise Troll Rogues can be said to be able to pick locks (with a club) and disable devices (with a club).
Meteor Swarm: this causes four meteors to rain down from the sky, all at different points. Make a ranged touch attack against four different targets (including sections of ground). The targets, if hit, take 10d6 Bludgeoning Damage. Then, all within a 20' radius of each meteor takes 1d6 Fire damage per caster level (if multiple blasts hit the same person, they are damaged multiple times) with a Ref save for half (each time, if struck multiple times). If the targets of the meteors were hit by the attacks, they automatically fail the save.
The area then becomes difficult ground, with the 5' square points of impact becoming deep craters (10' deep pits).

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?
Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.
Ok... I was just looking over the table on magic item levels in the MiC on page 225... and I'm realizing that it isn't actually all that great for what I'm trying to use it for. It's really for equipping NPCs. They list a +5 vorpal sword as being a 25th level item. WTF? And a +2 stat boosting item is listed as 8th level, and so technically a bit out of your guys' reach, which is not something I want.
So... I'm going to revise this a bit. Sorry for changing things on you, but since you're getting better swag, I doubt you're going to complain much.
We'll still use the chart, but for PCs
we're going to do a little calculation to determine what item levels are appropriate. We're going to divide your level by 2, round down, and add that to the item level that is appropriate to you on the chart. So for you guys, that would be 7/2 + 7, or 10th level items.
We'll say that you can have only one item of each level above your actual character level (so one 10th, one 9th, and one 8th), but basically as many as you want of lower level items. So in simple terms, if you want to upgrade or swap out three of your items for one 10th, one 9th, and one 8th level item, you can.(Added 12/9/09) We'll say that you can add non-magical things to your equipment without increasing the effective item level. So you can have mithril or adamantine armor for free, basically. You can also add mundane items to your magic ones for free, like adding the function of a masterwork tool to a magic cloak. I think some of you have already been doing this, anyway.
Here are some charts if you'd rather just look at them instead of doing the calculation yourself.Original chart, as in MiC:Item Level Market Price Range (gp)

18 One each from 19th to 27th on the chart above
19 One each from 20th to 28th on the chart above
20 One each from 21st to 30th on the chart above
You can still only have 8 items "attuned" at once, regardless of how many you have.
