    O hai, Touhouguy. I believe this is your character?

    >Name: Sir Lucius Maximillian Rhadamanthus Cloverfield III
    >Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    >Race: Half-Dragon Anthropomorphic Baleen Whale
    >Age: 66
    >Height: 10' 10"
    >Description: A miniature baleen whale clad in iron scales all over the main section of its body. Jutting out of its back are a pair of formidable iron wings, and sticking out of its torso are freakishly buff, flesh-colored, human arms and legs. The beast is garbed in a black, sleeveless three-piece coat and pants; dapper, custom-made leather shoes cover its fin-feet; and its accessories include a gold-rimmed monocle over one eye and an elegant top hat.

    By the way, add in a miniature chained anchor (since I'll be wielding a "meteor hammer"), and I'll be even more grateful.


    I'll be sure to inform you guys of any important developments, and I'll start a BAWWW thread if ever my character dies and it'll be a long while before I get resurrected. However, since it's a 12-PC party, I don't think I'll get a chance to be the star of the show that often, but that's perfectly fine with me. Also, have I disproven the whole "min-maxed characters cannot be good characters from a roleplaying standpoint" thing yet?

    He has 22 Dexterity (16 base + 4 racial + 2 Gloves of Dexterity), 18 Wisdom (14 base + 4 racial), and a 2-level dip in monk, so he might as well save some trouble and money by going unarmored. The game is gestalt and 40-point buy, and everyone gets a feat at every even level (instead of every 3 levels), in case you're wondering, which means it's a high-powered game.


    It's all in the concept and execution. I've nailed the concept hard with a neutronium fist, and now I just have to execute the roleplaying right. Wish me luck, guys.

    It's okay with me if you put him in Uberstadt. Well, that means I would have to stat up a 20th-level version of him that's non-gestalt, 25-point buy, and receiving a feat at every 3 levels. Alternatively, I could continue his regular high-powered progression, and you could just jack up his CR. Or you could just insert him purely in fluff only.

    >A creature must have a Constitution score to have the regeneration ability.

    This is why you can't have regeneration on constructs and undead. However, you can still pull off some astonishingly powergamed bullshit by somehow acquiring both regeneration and immunity to nonlethal damage while still retaining a Constitution score. An example of this would be a Human Urban Ranger 4/Crimson Scourge 8 (you can enter Crimson Scourge early with the Favored and Primary Contact feats from Cityscape) with the Troll-Blooded regional feat from Dragon Magazine #319, although this only works at ECL 12 and above.

    I believe you can also pull this off as a Half-Dragon x2 Human [Anything] 1 to get it at ECL 7, as long as you pick two dragon varieties that are immune to acid and fire respectively, but this requires even more bullshitting, especially considering that you're supposed to be descended from trolls by virtue of having the Troll-Blooded regional feat.
    >> Anonymous 04/23/08(Wed)13:41 No.1589904
    Or give the construct a magical regeneration ability, with some good fluff around it.

    I'd think that a construct given complete immunity to damage would have a significantly increased CR, if only because it makes damage-dealers useless against it, and constructs are immune to many varieties of save-or-die and save-or-suck spells. Hell, give a golem (spell resistance infinity) regeneration, and it's nigh-unstoppable unless you've specifically prepared for it. But fast healing is perfectly fine for constructs. Inevitables already have fast healing.

    But let's not stray too far from the original topic of the thread, shall we?

    By the way, guys, I think I should point out that he's a half-iron dragon from Dragon Magazine #356. Half-iron dragons have immunity to fire, a 1/day 30-foot cone of 6d8 electricity damage (supposedly a shower of ignited sparks) breath weapon, and a Lawful Neutral alignment.

    >On August 11, 1942, in the country of Germany on a Prime Material world known as Earth, an affront to nature was born. By splicing baleen whale DNA with dinosaur DNA and iron molecules, as well as by invoking the vestiges Eurynome and Focalor, German scientists and binders created a prototype super-soldier in order to aid the war effort.

    Sorry, Touhouguy, couldn't resist.

    Here's your arch-nemesis.

    As a 6th-level gestalt character, he's currently a Half-Iron Dragon Anthropomorphic Baleen Whale | Cleric 1/Focused Transmuter 1/Monk 2/Fighter 2 (the 3 monstrous humanoid HD and the +3 LA on one side of the gestalt progression, and the 6 class levels on the other side). I'm basically looking to make the meanest AoO lockdown fighter ever; not necessarily the most powerful character ever because he's not a caster and will probably go down to a min-maxed caster some day, but I just love AoO lockdown fighters so much that I want to optimize the hell out of one in a 40-point buy gestalt game where feats are received every 2 levels (instead of every 3 levels).

    As for being a psion/paladin, isn't that kind of a bad multiclass combination due to the MAD between Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma? Although I guess you could take the Serenity feat from the Dragon Magazine Compendium so that all of your Charisma-based paladin abilities are now Wisdom-based, and you could try to go for a psi-gish build with levels in Slayer and Sanctified Mind.

    Fuck, now I'm imagining an epic battle between Sir Lucius Maximillian Rhadamanthus Cloverfield III, Sharkman, and Captain Ahab.

    Wow, that game is going to be crazy. Gestalt AND extra feats? Why not just make everyone higher level to begin with?

    And yeah, it's a terrible mutliclass and I guarantee she isn't going to do anything to reduce her MAD. Her last character was a ranger/rogue so I suggested she play a Swift Hunter but nooooooo: a psion who multiclasses into paladin AND takes a +ECL race is much better.

    I never really got to begin a proper rivalry with Doc before he disappeared.

    If Touhoufag really has eaten Doc Aquatic's soul to multiclass freely into creative roleplaying, I would want to start struggling to topple his throne instead.

    But that's a big fucking throne!

    Damn, this thread just proved that Touhoufag can min-max even roleplaying, as much of an oxymoron that sounds.
