Screw party balance, it is about time to make a kittygirl priestess/druidess! The only problem is a lack of a LA+0 catgirl race out there. There is catfolk, but that is +1 LA and meh to that.

Well if she's willing to help out with the healing then that would cover that problem quite well, and the druid aspect would add to her power in a fight I imagine. Looking forward to seeing what you will come up with then, and yes your applying to join along was noticed.

I could use a custom race for this, since I don't want to use catfolk for this build. Since it is going to be wisdom based and not charisma. Also going to be using the shapechanger build from PHBII, since it is far superior to vanilla wildshape.

This build is funny, since there isn't any reason to get any magical armor or weapons. Cannot use either in shapechanged form, so that leaves a nice big hole for me to get weird magical items. Like the rod of viscid globs.

As note Nicci you could pick Shifter race and pick the one which gets white eyes and wisdom bonus while shifting. Shifters can be quite feline alike. Another variant is to drop something from catfolk to make them +0 race. Or LA affects only one side of gestalt.

Example;
female catfolk Cleric 5+LA|Druid 6

Since info was just given to me, I will go for what I really want to focus on, that is a Monk/Sorceress at level six apiece, plain jane human.  Capitalize on touch attacks.

***EDIT  Monk 6 / Sorceress 5, Dragon Disciple 1.  That was the printed PRC I was looking for***

Let's see what the DM has to say about this. Since the DM has the power to just make up new races and rules. It is a important trait that beginning DMs need to learn.

That and I am going with Horo as a picture/personality. Since nothing is more adorable and haughty then Horo!

Nikki, the GM turned down people from choosing classes in books that weren't in his OK pile.  Why should he allow you to make your own race?  And why do you have to assume that he's a beginning DM?  And why do you feel its necessary for him to make a new race specifically for you, when he already put down the list of resources available?

This is becoming absurd.

I like to throw ideas out there and see what happens. If he is that strict, then that is okay, I can still go catfolk and go cleric 5/druid 6.

I have GMed a fair share of games actually, but most of them with a group of friends in reality. I've ran some on forums before, but mostly Solo games. I have tried my hand with some forum games with groups, and it seems to be possible, and fun, with the right group. Disappearances that eat people are not so fun but happen, sadly enough.

Now, as for the race. I like what you have going on there with the Horo, but as pointed out by PhantomPistoleer I prefer to keep this to a limited set of materials if possible to avoid being overwhelmed by it.

I'd appreciate it if you were willing to play a more standard race found in the booklist that was OK'd with the group of players before. I got nothing personal against exotic races, but one of the ideas was to limit down some books and such so that players are on the same start-line, not having to complain about unfair advantage I'd granted someone.

I think it might be possible to have a character who is stat-wise, human, elven, whatever race you pick, but during the Druid Training got messed up with transformations, resulting in a -partial- return to human/elf/well, base race form and partial traits remaining, like the exotic ears or tail.

No in game penalties or bonuses, even if the senses were sharper they would be so 'new' still that the character wouldn't be able to make any special use of them still. Flavor addition with a good story reasoning? That I think I can live with (and it doesn't give unfair advantages to anyone) but I figure that its not exactly what you got in mind, still.

Anyhow, just tossed it up for a thought anyway.

I can do a transformation into a wolfgirl sort of situation. Just keep the elf stats the same and all? Makes sense. I already got my backstory.

That I settled down in a farming community and using my powers that I obtained by the transformation, I gained druidess abilities on top of my clerical. So I spent a few centuries in this farm land, using my spells and abilities to enrich the land and live on it. Basically turning into a hermit in the woods. This pretty much made me into some sort of folk lore wolf goddess of the land, since this section of the land has always seen vibrant and fertile crops.

Eventually the sense of wanderlust came about, so I decided to trek out back into the world and see how it has changed. Spending a few centuries in the woods by myself has made it quite difficult to see eye to eye with civilized folk, so there is plenty of opportunity there for some naughty fun.

Ah ok, I see the list of OKAY books and Races of the Wild is not one of them. Fair enough. I'm also going animal and plant domains, so that campaign option where we are traveling a lot and killing monsters is good for me. Traveling from place to place only means more chances to scare peasants with Plant Growth and enrich their crops for the season.

I think I have the Races of the Wild book, its not on the OK but I don't think its on the NO list either. Didn't consider putting it on either so far.

I'm willing to put it up for a vote if others are fine with using it, though that book's presence comes up pretty late in game (then again we had a question about whether or not to allow psionics too before) but I think the question could be asked at least.

Body of the sun + Shapeshift = hilarious. Having a powered wolf charging at you, that is also on fire!

Zaer, if I'm not mistaken, if you got in line you'd be number 2 on the waiting list.

I am not a melee fighter. I didn't bother to get a weapon or armor, and I only got 12 con. So I need a nice elf fighter something something to meat shield.

It is certainly lively here. Looking forward to starting sometime soon, it looks like we are upto 5 ready characters now, the last one I am waiting for is from the abandoneddolly, and if she isn't available, we now got Aether on the waiting list, and Zaer.

Reading previous posts, we had RubySlippers along for the ride but she dropped out. Lots of turnover in the game.
