Compared to those two, the Unbegotten gets a pair of slam attacks that he has to use, +10 enhancement to str, blindsight, fast healing 5, and immunity to polymorph/poison/75% of critical hits, but runs the risk of his Influence, which is that he can neither speak nor think. Also, he makes Houdini look like a hack magician and he can squeeze through a keyhole, which is really neat, but a little lackluster at 17th level.
Any ideas? I'd originally had him with a blasphemy/word of chaos ability that he could use once every 5 rounds, but I felt that made him a bit overpowered and didn't quite fit the flavor. Maybe some sort of ability like the fission power...
I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.
