Things from the Greek myth

https://www.enworld.org/threads/paragon-and-amidah-revisions.317975/ The version of Mr.Satan with the addition of the following 3 abilities
Paragon Presence (Ex): The paragon radiate an aura of pure presence (Radius: 25 ft. + 5 ft./2 Hit Dice). All creatures with less than half the paragon HD must make a Will save DC 10 + ½ paragon HD + paragon Charisma modifier or fall unconscious for the overwhelming presence of the paragon for 2 hours. Slapping or wounding awakens an affected creature, but normal noise does not. Awakening a creature is a standard action (an application of the aid another action). If a creature make his save is instead staggered for a number of rounds equal to the paragon Charisma modifier. Once a creature make with success his save, he is immune to the Paragon Presence of that paragon for 1 day. Against unattended abject in the area (like the squares of the floor) Paragon Presence deal 1 damage x HD of the paragon every round which apply only half of the hardness. The paragon can exclude any number of creatures of objects from suffer the effects of this aura. This is a fear, mind-affecting effect.
Adaptation (Ex): The paragon gains resistance to Terrestrial Hazards.
Mythic (Ex): The paragon has Mythic Power (X/day, Surge +Y) and counts as a X-rank Mythic creature. The paragon can use any of his spell and spell-like abilities as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. He can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spell and spell-like abilities. X his equal to 1/5 his HD and Y is the Surge suitable for the rank.
Mr. Satan updated his version of the Paragon and Amidah templates some time ago. Nerfing the paragon template and bringing it more in line with the original. He even left some of his notes on how he calculated their CR/LA values. That's in numerical shorthand and really wouldn't mean much to most. For those familiar with the Challenge Rating Document...Essentially he silver ruled them. I golden rule them myself and reduce them by a further 1/6th. So LA +45 becomes LA +37.5, etc..


Paragon (Perfect One) (Revised (I.H.:A. (÷6x5)))

I know that version but I prefer the linked version of the post and I will never give alter reality and Inner Eye (a Sidereal powers) with simple Paragon (Hades do not have Inner Eye). Inner Eye with Lord. Alter Reality and Inner/evil eye (dimensional mastery version) with Amidah.

You can already get wish at will as a mere divine ability (Domain spell-likes), which works with Automatic Metamagic Capacity.

Inner Eye really just equates to maxing rolls, which isn't really that powerful and can be replicated with 3 (or fewer) feats. It's only real benefit is thwarting Evil Eye, which a paragon would need to be able to do to ever stand even a snowball's chance in Hell against an Amidah, which, in theory, they're supposed to be competing against.

I have removed wish from all the Portfolios spells.

Give inner eye with a build based on critical hits at level below sidereals and you will one-shot the world. You have everything maxed out and you can never roll a "1" and automatically fail attacks and saves. Also, giving it with Paragon means Lord Of Individuality gets two Cosmic instead of one since you get both Paragon and Inner.

I have removed wish from all the Portfolios spells. What divine ability are you talking?

"isn't really powerful". Give inner eye with a build based on critical hits and see how powerful it is.
There are already builds for about 3 feats (or less) that let you auto-crit on every attack. There are also builds that thwart criticals for the same price or less.

I've personally exploited every exploit in the game using popular supplements written by established authors.

There are three easy solutions for solving critical abuse.
1. Critical and precision damage immunity. Easily obtained.
2. Hit point multipliers.
3. Better armor.

Inner Eye specifically disallows automatic success on To Hit and saving throw die rolls anyway. If AC is too high to hit, all the critical exploits in the world are meaningless.

There are countless builds that, even at subepic levels will thwart overpowered fighter type builds.

My players (all power gamers) frequently ended up raging after they'd spent days tweaking their builds only to have them die or get knocked unconscious anyway.

Of course that never stopped them from piling on the crazy (within the rules). They saw it as a challenge. lol
 

I have removed wish from all the Portfolios spells.
Most characters by Epic levels already have access to miracle, reality revision, and wish. I never saw it as an issue. Paragons are specifically epic level (or should be).
Also, giving it with Paragon means Lord Of Individuality gets two Cosmic instead of one since you get both Paragon and Inner.
Lord of Individuality is on par with Extra Portfolio in that case. In fact, Extra Portfolio has the potential to be even more powerful before even reaching Greater deity status.

Then there are Cosmic Superimposition (which grants you 2 full portfolios...if you steal them), Doppelganger, and Replicate, which are far nastier and still just singular cosmics.
