    Actually, the best solution I have found is some alternate options for psionic dominate in Hyperconscious: Explorations in Psionics from Malhavoc Press. It has rules for expending extra power points to make psionic dominate's duration permanent.

    Bwah-ha-ha!

    Another issue: One of the PCs allies is a dwarf with giantish blood in his (recent) family history. Thus, my plan is to make him a half-giant, but I don't want to use the half-troll template. Also, I don't want him to be a half-giant like in the Expanded Psionics Handbook.

    Now, I seem to remember that Savage Species has a half-giant race option in it that isn't tied to psionics, but I'd rather have a half-giant template that can be added on to the dwarf NPC.

    Does anyone know of a d20 sourcebook with a half-giant template in it? Even a giant blooded template would be useful. Or does anyone have a half-giant template they've created?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Now, they had a deal with the Matriarch, but she never intended to keep her word. (I've decided to make her really evil in my campaign.) She had a powerful duergar psion alter the mind of one of the Order's allies. A frost giant named Shtte.

    This domination effect made him completely forget who the PCs were, until the cleric cast miracle and freed his friend. They then plane shifted away to Celestia. (Note that in my campaign, magic and psionics are COMPLETELY different. Oil and water. They do not mix.) Psionics are very rare in my campaign.

    Now, what I need is a 20-level duergar psion with the ability to completely dominate multiple opponents, permanently. I don't know the psionics rules as well as I'd like so I need some guidance on this one. I believe the best discipline to use in this case would be the Telepath concept, but I'm not sure. Plus, any prestige class suggestions would be good too.

    39 of the soldiers are humans (75%) and half-duergars (25%) that will basically be Purple Dragon Knights, as per the FRCS, but completely EVIL. 4 of the spellcasters are warmages, and the other 6 are clerics of war. The PDKs should all be, at least, 15th-level. The warmages and clerics should be anywhere from 10th to 15th-level, but I'm thinking one of the clerics should be 20th-level.

    Anyway, opinions and suggestions definitely needed!

    Cheers!

    Are there any specific variants you use? From Unearthed Arcana in particular?

    Actually, all of Unearthed Arcana is considered "wide open" for my campaign world.

    Excellent!

    I'll get to work on some of them. I'm thinking I'll tackle the Clr 20 you mentioned first, then maybe a couple PDK and a Warmage 12-15.

    Gestalt okay?

    Umm, actualy I went ahead and did the deurgar psionicist already. I guess I should have mentioned that. (I'm not a big fan of Gestalt characters, BTW)

    The PDKs would be great to get, as soon as you can. I have a game tomorrow and I'll need some bad guys. I'll likely do the leader of the Warmages, myself as a 15th-level character, so if you want to do some lower level ones then go ahead.

    That's cool. I assume you want the PDK to have Evile mounts as well? I hope, because that's how I'm building them.

    Flaming Hooves (Su): A blow from a nightmares hooves sets combustible materials alight.
    Smoke (Su): During the excitement of battle, a nightmare snorts and neighs with rage. This snorting fills a 15-foot cone with a hot, sulfurous smoke that chokes and blinds opponents. Anyone in the cone must succeed on a DC 16 Fortitude save or take a 2 penalty on all attack and damage rolls until 1d6 minutes after leaving the cone. The cone lasts 1 round, and the nightmare uses it once as a free action during its turn each round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
    Because of the smoke it gives off, a nightmare has concealment against creatures 5 feet away and total concealment against creatures 10 feet or farther away. The smoke does not obscure the nightmares vision at all.
    Astral Projection and Etherealness (Su): These abilities function just like the spells of the same names (caster level 20th); a nightmare can use either at will.
