    Agreed on the save DC point, but otherwise I like 'em. They seem so... obvious, in retrospect. I'm surprised nobody came up with them before. I mean, seriously, Nature deities should be all over...

    The idea for this came to me at work last night, and after spending some time thinking it over carefully, I thought it fit the Transcendental tier best. The thing I spent time on once I got home, was...

    New Incarnum Abilities

    During today's game, one of my players interested in Incarnum pointed out that existing Incarnum bonuses are pretty weak in Divine terms. During the discussion, we managed...

    An application of repeatability to Iatric, taken to greater extremes. I like it. Consider it snagged! :)

    Interesting. This could be very strong if misused, say, to get the artifacts having extra Transcendental abilities- but with Trans abilities so close to infinite anyway, it might not matter.

    We very rarely get into combat actually- I've mostly been giving XP and QP for "story award" situations. The ongoing plot of the waking Demiurge has the various universes tied up in knots. In fact,...

    Keep in mind, again, that the party I'm talking about is currently around ECL 700 rather than 492.

    Also, both melee characters have taken the ability (I forget its name) that lets their attacks...

    Another new [Effect] type

    As long as I'm posting anyway, I suppose it's high time I shared this idea my group came up with, though it hasn't yet been seriously tested in play.

    This came about because we have a deity who...

    That was the idea, yes. It's a new type of [Effect], not a new Divine/Cosmic/Transcendental/Omnific ability. Whatever ability an Immortal of any level has, that has the form [X][Effect], Godspell is...

    Disclaimer: this has not yet been tested in play, though we ran some numbers and liked the results enough to give it a shot.

    I'd think that would work out pretty near the same, though it might work better in practice because the area-doubler is Widen and that costs more than one spell level.
