Does Vow of Poverty have Epic benefits?

Do the abilities of Vow of Poverty continue to increase into epic levels? Has anyone created a list of this nature? I play a 20th level character with VoP and I'm hoping that these benefits continue to grow since I wont be using any epic equipment as a result.

There are no official rules for it. You'll have to dscuss it with your DM. Luckily most of the abilties have a fairly standard progression. You'll probably want to find new abilities as well, since the feat does grant some things that are not progressive (like sustenance).

Of course there has to be an epic progression, there just is no official one.

I had asked the same thing once out of curiosity and someone pointed to the wizards boards, where something like this has been done, inofficially of course.

WWDMD: What Would Dungeon Master Do?

Just out of curiousity, if you DMed a character with VoP into epic levels how would you handle it. Would you allow the ability bonuses to keep going? AC bonuses? resistance bonuses? Exalted feats? etc... Has anyone DMed a character into epic levels with this feat?

I'd probably let all the bonuses scale as normal (as in the text, like every three levels this, every five levels that).

Then add in some useful abilities for those that do not scale.

Basically keeping up with the epic level bonuses from magic items in a similar way as it is done with pre-epic levels in the BoED.

Now, that I think about it... I have seen an epic progression for VoP on this board recently...

Out of curiosity, since PC's get a feat at level 21. Why not require someone to take an "epic" version of the VoP to continue progression from level 21-40, in other words, take another feat for another 20 levels, make it kind of like a renewal of vows for marriage in a way. Reconfirming your faith.

I dont see why you should have to take another feat for epic since the limitations on the pre-epic feat still hurt you, even more so at epic levels.
