    Default Paragonia, the Paragon Reality

    Paragonia; it is a reality of stunning splendor, unsurpassed beauty and unnatural vitality. Here, the grass is so green and sharp that lessers must wear goggles to appreciate the majesty of the landscape and terrain, and +5 vorpal keen longswords must be used as lawn-cutting implements.

    Here is the reality of perfection; where the word sloughs away to reveal the full perfect totality of existence. The land is the perfect ideal, its population the perfect embodiments.

    This incredibly beautiful elf stands a majestic 6 feet tall. Her hair is a fiery auburn, worn long and tied through a simple leather loop. Her skin is as creamy and smooth as buttermilk. She wears chainmail that shines with the full luminescence of the celestial heavens. She moves with liquid grace; her sword as light itself.

    The elf warrior presented here had the following ability scores before racial adjustments: Str 15, Dex 14, Con 13, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 8.

    Combat

    Elf Paragon (Ex): The paragon elf benefits from elfsight, resist enchantments, weapon focus and ability boost.

    Elfsight (Ex): A paragon elf has exceptional visual acuity. Her racial bonus on Search and Spot checks increases to +4. In addition, an elf paragon's low-light vision increases in range, allowing her to see three times as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination.

    Elf Traits (Ex): Immunity to sleep spells and effects, +2 racial bonus on Listen. An elf who merely passes 5 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check to notice it as if she were actively looking for it.

    Resist Enchantments (Ex): A paragon elf's racial bonus on saves against enchantment spells or effects increases by 2; this concludes as a +4 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells or effects.

    Skills (Ex): The paragon creature gains a +10 competence bonus on all its skill checks.

    Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day - greater dispel magic, haste, invisibility. Caster level 28th. Spell DC = 17 + spell level.

    The meow that assaults you is commanding in its power and persuasive in its influence. It is a small cat, yet you find yourself lost within the directive issued by this gorgeous feline. Its soft, fluffy fur is the colouration of liquid silver, its every movement sending ripples of honed musculature to undulate. A paw lifts in an almost bored gesture with offensive ease. Its eyes are pools of sapphire and emerald, twin gems that sparkle and glint even in the daylight. In every aspect it is a cat, but it is by far the most perfect example of one. Before you stands Fluffy, the Destroyer of Worlds.

    Combat

    A paragonian cat's natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

    Low-light vision (Ex): Paragonian cats have eyes that are so sensitive to light that they can see four times as far as normal in dim light.

    Skills (Ex): Cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Jump checks. Cats have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus rises to +8. The paragon creature gains a +10 competence bonus on all its skill checks.

    Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day - greater dispel magic, haste, invisibility. Caster level 15th. Spell DC = 16 + spell level.

    Combat

    A paragonian nymph's natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

    Blinding Beauty (Su): This ability affects all humanoids within 30 feet of a paragonian nymph. Those who look directly at a paragonian nymph must succeed on a DC 35 Fortitude save or be blinded permanently as though by the blindness spell. A paragonian nymph can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. The save DC is Charisma-based.

    Skills (Ex): A paragonian nymph has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. She can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. She can use the run action while swimming, provided she swims in a straight line. The paragon creature gains a +10 competence bonus on all its skill checks.

    Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day - greater dispel magic, haste, invisibility. Caster level 15th. Spell DC = 22 + spell level.
    1/day - dimension door. Caster level 22nd. Spell DC = 22 + spell level.

    Spells: A paragonian nymph casts divine spells as a 10th-level druid.
    Druid Spells per Day: 6/7/7/6/6/4, save DC 21 + spell level.
    0—cure minor wounds, detect magic, flare, guidance, light, resistance; 1st—calm animals, cure light wounds, entangle, longstrider, obscuring mist, pass without trace, speak with animals; 2nd—barkskin, gust of wind, heat metal, lesser restoration x2, tree shape, owl's wisdom; 3rd— call lightning, cure moderate wounds, plant growth, quench, remove disease, wind wall; 4th—cure serious wounds, flame strike, freedom of movement, reincarnate, rusting grasp, spike stones; 5th—animal growth, baleful polymorph, call lightning storm, death ward.

    Stunning Glance (Su): As a standard action, a wrathful paragonian nymph can stun a creature within 30 feet with a look. The target creature must succeed on a DC 35 Fortitude save or be stunned for 2d4 rounds. The save DC is Charisma-based.

    Unearthly Grace (Su): A paragonian nymph adds her Charisma modifier as a bonus on all her saving throws, and as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class. (The statistics block already reflects these bonuses).

    Wild Empathy (Ex): This power works like the druid's wild empathy class feature, except that a paragonian nymph has a +8 racial bonus on the check.

    Now -this- looks like it could be fun. Have you thought about toying around with the Paragon template, though? Nothing big, just switching out the SLAs and stuff like that for more flavor?

    I had the same idea myself when I first saw the Paragon template. Send the PCs to a plane where everything is a paragon, cut off their teleportation and planar travel, and make them ride across the plains fearing bandits and wolves like they did 10-15 levels ago. Also: while it's not clear in the SRD, if you look in the ELH, that +13 insight bonus applies to the save DCs of all the creature's special attacks. Spellcasting is listed under special attacks in statblocks (So are spell-like abilities and pretty much every class feature that's not an immunity).

    So, how about some Paragon Cavalry? Paragon Animal Trainers with Paragon War-Trained Riding Dogs? Paragon 1st level spellcasters with ridiculous save DCs?

    Attention Imgur Users! Imgur apparently doesn't like hosting images anymore and only works in certain places or for people who already have the image cached: No one can see your avatars or images!
    Also Photobucket users? Don't know if it's a bandwidth or region lock or something, but I'm seeing some avatars blurred out with a watermark that looks like the photobucket icon.
    And Tinypic went down a while back, seeing plenty of old avatars showing their downed image.

    Wrong! Kick reason to the curb and do the impossible! That the team Dai-Gurren way! There's no such thing as perfection! If you stop for even a second, you're just compromising with existence! They're paragons now? HA! They can be even more perfect! YOURS IS THE DRILL THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS!

    You forgot to add unearthly grace to the saving throws properly.

    I would honestly like to see two of these nymphs fight each other because that fight is darn near impossible.
    1. Their attacks can only hit each other on a natural 20
    2. Any successful hit (or even critical hit) will be healed completely within 2 rounds.
    3. They will never fail a saving throw against each other's abilities except on a natural 1.
    4. Their spell resistance is too high for their spellcasting to make a difference.
    5. If one turns invisible to get the other's touch AC, the other can simply dispel it (or turn invisible as well).

    In short, the battle continues until someone hits a statistical anomoly and keeps rolling 1s or 20s.
    I'm try not to be too vain but this was too perfect not to sig.
