In any order, you're spreading yourself awfully thin... trying to do three things usually means that a specialist in any of them could kick your ass.

Well, the fighter levels may be reduced to one, just to get eldrith knight, the idea is a split between divine and arcane magic, and with my feat progression I'll be able to wear armor and cast two spells a round without sarifcing uper level spells.  But I'll look into it.  If we have some tanks and other things I'll rpobably rework my idea, just need to see what we have before I lock my character in.

an Epic game (as I understand your definition of Epic) involves big-time power-gaming and munchkinism.

Just because the levels are unreasonably high doesn't mean it's munchkinism, thank you very much.

Powergaming, yes, but not necessarily munchkinism.

There's no such thing as too much system.

Unless you're rolling round-by-round for sex.  Then maybe you could stand to have a little less system...
So we're into second edition BBSW, are we?

The only thing I know about BBSW is the name.

Mostly I was referring to the Guide to Unlawful Carnal Knowledge's rules.  (I don't mean this as a criticism of those rules in particular -- the problem is really the concept of turn-based sex mechanics in general.)  They work well enough (as demonstrated in GB's other game), but I don't feel it really adds anything to the scene to roll dice and reference charts while you're trying to write a post.

Yeah...if the game does start I'll definitely follow the story...and participate as a juicy, nubile NPC if the players/GM desire.  Then I get all the pleasure of story without feeling like I do when I sit down with a 1040 on the table in front of me.   ;)

Munchkinism would be magical items that work in antimagic fields.

Sure we're really powerful, but there are always ways to rip someone down, as long as their is an exploitable weakness that isn't something only the player can control, it hasn't become munchkining.

Well when we get into further details, I'll nail down a character for certain.  Just expect one half dragon/troll ranger type.   ;D

Question, any of you know a prestigous class that stacks for turning checks?  Or is it just clerics?  I'm trying to find something that'll work without just going to cleric levels.

Only one I can think of is Radiant Servent of Pelor, which doesn't fit with the Evil theme.  I know Ur-Priest gets Rebuking, but I don't think it stacks with anything...

And we're for sure doing evil?  Just want to know cause I'm thinking of playing a lich if we are.

Oh, and one other thing, can I be a paragon creature?  I know the  CR would be HD +12. but I'm not sure how to convert that to LA.
Closest I have is a juvinale dragon with a Cr 9 and a LA of 6.
But then there is the vampire Cr +2 and La of 8

Anyone have any ideas?

No Paragon. Here's all you'll need to know about hell, as far as my cosmology goes: http://community.dicefreaks.com/viewtopic.php?t=88

And for undead templates and other items that might be of interest: http://community.dicefreaks.com/viewforum.php?f=15&sid=e96539e6ddb333c4e2d9c263b285cc83

Point buy 36, standard wealth. Custom items hold the possibility of being vetoed if I deem them too obscene.

You can.

And there most certainly is, Idachan. You're welcome to step into Hell. I'll be waiting with open arms... and other accountrements, like contracts, pens that draw blood as ink from those who write with them... But never you mind. *evil grin*

So who's thinking of what right now? Just so I have an idea of what I'll need to subdue and crush... I mean, entertain you all.

Half red dragon/troll ranger.  CN or NE, most likely.

LE or N, not sure yet which.

Elven Wizard/ lore master/ archmage

Probably going to be the only one without a LA,

Per curiousity,

    1) is having a mount applicatable to your campaign?  or will it be Dungeon crawling?
    2) if mounts are applicatable what would you hold as reasonable?
    3) Do you follow the general rule that if it is a racial weapon they proficient with it?  Case in point Elven thinblade.
    4) Any languages in your world in addition to what's in the PG?

Not dungeons crawling persay, so you could have a mount, and, if necessary, polymorph it to hide its bulk. However, when trying to get infiltrate, it might cause problems by drawing attention. A cauchemar, were you thinking?

Okay one more, the epic book does have a pricing mistake right?  cause it has +6 shield as 360,000 instead of 36,000.  Did this carry over all things?

Epic bonuses, yes.

For instance, a ring of protection +6 is 720,000 gp, unless I'm mistaken.

But, if I were you, I wouldn't complain. You do have over 13 mil in gp to work with.

I assume you have the Complete Warrior? Refer to Racial Proficiency, the feat, for you answer.

Epic items are x10 cost.  The book is pretty clear on that.
