How do you get that high??

I'm curious about that too.

If you start with a character with an Appearance of 18 (presuming a base score of 18 and no racial bonus), and have it be a juvenile for an additional +2 Appearance for its age (though how it's still this young and 20th level is rather suspect), then add +2 for being a feykissed creature, add in +5 from the ability points you get once every four levels, and another +5 inherent bonuses from wishes or miracles, with a +20 from a maximized beauty's caress, that's still only a 52.

A beauty's caress adds 1d4 per 2 caster levels. If you have 20 caster levels that's 10d4. Maximized, that 10X4, +40. Add that to the 25 a feykissed character can have just by reaching level 20, you get 65. Throw in wishes and you can get to 70 App. Basically you make Aphrodite look like a mutt...

You forgot the part of the spell that says it's capped at 5d4. B-)


Aah, missed that. Still, what other spell lets you add +20 to an attribute? Switch that to Strength and you can use an ogre as a golf club. And it affects BOTH Charisma and Appearance. I'm thinking this is way too powerful to be a level 3 spell. Fixes?

I honestly think that the best fix for this spell is out-and-out deletion. It violates a number of principles of spell design in 3.5, such as the sheer amount of power it gives for its level (this is the big one), as well as that spells that enhance ability scores don't roll for the amount of the bonus they grant any more (they did in 3.0, but not 3.5).

Seriously, it's much better to just delete this spell; peacock's beauty already does enough in regards to what this spell wants to do (bonus to Appearance).

Aside from the Rake not being a core class I like the classes in this book, they make sense from a role-playing stand. Anyone see any problems with them? Any faves?

Let's just say don't click the link if tables like this one gives you a headache...

The link's URL suggests it originated from 4chan. That made me do a quick check so we didn't have a catastrophe on our hands.

Luckily there's nothing too egregious in there (that my quick eyeball scan could catch), but it's likely a good idea not to discuss its contents in any detail here...

You really should reconsider posting links to random PDFs found online, though... ;)

Cheers

You are correct sir! That is what I get for trying to be helpful, when any fool can do a google search and find what I did.
No I wasn't trying to rap you over the fingers. I was aiming for a humorous approach - linking files unseen can be a risky proposition, especially when they originate from places like 4chan...

I applaud you trying to help.

I found the link, but didn't check it out. I'm an architect and that chart's resemblance to the fire separation by use chart in the building code made me LOL.
Being in a similar line of work, I can sympathise. I am from England so I am obviously not familiar with the regulations in Ohio, but it sounds like fire-separation rules are universaly bizarre and labarynthine.
