    biggrin Playing a sandwich?!

    I got this from a friend, basically it allows a high-level psion to play as an inanimate object (ie. a sandwich)

    Here's how:

    1. Polymorph a sandwich into a human (temporarily)
    2. Use true mind switch on said human
    3. Walk into the middle of a cavern complex, preferably filled with hungry, low-level monsters (kobolds are ideal)
    4. Wait until you turn back into a sandwich
    5. When the hungry kobolds show up, blast away for easy XP :)

    And you know what the best part is? Even if they get to you, you can always true mind switch with one of them.

    I've seen this before but it always makes me giggle. For some reason I picture a psionic overlord atop a massive pyramid surrounded by worshipers and then it zooms in to a sentient sandwich. I think of weird things...

    Lol this made me thing AvP where the aliens are racing up the temple/pyramid to get the last few preds on a hunt...except a sandwich is mind thrusting them.

    *edit* This is definitely food for thought.

    You could be a great deal many things with that trick.

    But what would happen if someone where to tear the sandwich apart and bury all the ingredients on separate parts of the planet?

    Could you use True Mind Switch on an object that is mobile, deadly and virtually indestructible, such as a Sphere Of Annihilation?

    I wonder more about what would happen with a sandwich that was in a more compromising environment like by a river? Would the person take damage if the sandwich got wet? It's not like they can breathe...
    Oh, you. You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You are truly incorruptible, aren't you? Huh? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever. - Joker

    A fellowship must be made to reassemble the one true sandwich, to save us all!

    For a way that doesn't turn all your stats to 0, I recommend using Animate Object+Permanancy+Awaken Construct(SpC)+True Mind Switch. Then at least you get mental stats.

    I play primarily 3.5 D&D. Most of my advice will be based off of this. If my advice doesn't apply, specify a version in your post.

    I'm sure you're just eating them up.

    But yes, you could do that (or something like it). I'm a bit more fond of True Mind Switching something that has a set of abilities you like - Regeneration, Fast Healing, DR, natural Flight, and so on.
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    There's one problem with being a sandwich. How do you stay fresh? Your bread will get wet and either fall apart of grow mold. Your cheese will dry out. Your deli meat will spoil. Your olive on a toothpich will grow mold. How does a sandwich, even a psychic sandwich, survive in a world without plastic bags and refridgerators?!

    Hmm. Maybe his mage friend can cast genesis that makes a plane where sandwiches don't go bad...

    Enchant it as a shield.

    Ooo, mind swap into a dancing sandwich. You could move then so long as some one wields you in the off times.
