    Best Stats for Lowest ECL

    Maugs are from the Fiend Folio. They're a bunch of mercenary constructs who have a thing about grafting stone 'improvements' to their bodies. With respect to the Feral template, the benefits you get are based on your monster HD, not that from classes. Or so Rich Redman says, anyway. Your Feral...

    Best Stats for Lowest ECL

    Yes, the anthropomorphic baleen whale's ECL is just plain wrong. Something that is slightly less silly is the Incarnate Construct Maug, which is also ECL 3. If I'm remembering correctly, it's a Large Giant which moves at 40' and gets +10 Str, +4 Dex, +2 Int, +2 Cha, +7 natural armour, 10' reach...

    Golems and MD?

    The magic that creates a golem is instantaneous, so there's nothing for Mordenkainen's disjunction to disjoin.

    Character for "Anything Goes" Campaign

    Tauric Blink Dog-Sun Elf Telflammar Shadowlord. You know you want to. Or else an Incarnate Construct Maug Duelist, or a Fey-Touched Telepath/Shadow Mind/Arch-Psion.

    Enlarge Person - useless for Half Ogres

    I must look up what they're listed as in Urban Arcana when I go home. I have a feeling they are 2HD monsters, but I can't remember whether they're Giants or not.

    Enlarge Person - useless for Half Ogres

    Then I wonder why they have Giant Blood? Being Giants just makes them better, and they hardly need that.

    Enlarge Person - useless for Half Ogres

    Actually, nowhere does it say that half-ogres are Giants. It says they have Giant Blood, which means they count as Giants for the purposes of racially specific magic items, but there's nothing to indicate they're not Humanoid. Besides, why would they need the Giant Blood quality if they were...

    Cleric of no deity and the War domain

    I don't see a problem with a cleric devoted to some general principle choosing any martial weapon, since I don't believe there are any restrictions. However, if you feel like being restricted, you could go with the weapon that is summoned by the spiritual weapon spell for a cleric of no...

    Ham String feat

    Multiple hamstringings don't stack, except in the case of a quadruped or similar, where you have to hamstring it twice to reduce its speed. In other words, each instance of hamstringing affects two legs and all of a creature's legs must be affected to reduce its speed. This is explained in the...

    Full Attack for complicated Thri-Kreen

    If you were a gnoll or volodni, the feat Long Reach from Unapproachable East would allow you to threaten both 5' and 10' away with a long- or shortspear. Hmm. I guess that's not really very helpful. :) Maybe your DM will be nice and make a similar feat for your situation.

    Gaming catchphrases, expressions, and idioms--what are yours?

    Whenever a door is opened with a high Open Lock check, or a trap disarmed particularly well, it is said to be 'Sven'. I have absolutely no idea how this started.

    Which one is harder - the fighter or the barbarian ?

    Assuming you mean harder in the sense of harder to kill/tougher, it's probably the Barbarian. Although he's likely to have a lower AC than the Fighter, the right feats (like Roll With It) can make him pretty good at shrugging off physical damage. Just don't go anywhere near a Telepath...

    Savage Species: Feral Question

    As Darkman said, Rich Redman clarified that the Feral template only takes into account monster HD when determining the benefits. Think of it this way: if you want to make a Feral Elf, you're applying the Feral template to a 1HD Humanoid. However, Elves don't advance by adding more Humanoid HD...

    psychic warrior - the killing machine

    I'll post the psychic warrior I used in a one-shot later, once I have my books. Took a lickin' and kept on tickin', as they say.

    Whats better XX resistance or bonus to save vs XX?

    Long-term, probably the bonus to saves. Items and spells can give you resistance to elemental damage.

    WANTED Melee Types that stand up longer Apply Within

    From the SRD: The weapon quality is described as positive energy flowing into you, even to the point of damaging an undead wielder, which is the same as a cure x spell. I can't take credit for this tactic, though. Whoever came up with it, I salute you.

    WANTED Melee Types that stand up longer Apply Within

    A Psychic Warrior with high Str who has manifested one of the biofeedback chain of powers takes some damage from each injury as subdual damage. If you have a wrathful healing weapon (from Enemies & Allies), you heal half the damage you deal out on a hit. Whenever you heal normal damage, you heal...

    Need suggestions for a summer character...

    I played a Feral half-ogre Psychic Warrior who used a spiked chain as his main weapon and enjoyed it.

    Cheap Favorite Magic Items

    Wings of Flying. Far better than Winged Boots, and yet much cheaper.
