    Default reward for an 8th lvl artificer who killed a god

    Fellow playgrounders, in my last d&d session my adventuring party successfully tracked a yui tan cult to a set of ancient ruins in the middle of the jungle. finding the area surrounded in an antimagic feild that stopped everything but the yui tan casters, we were forced to stop their ritual sacrafices using the only thing available to us - 60 gallons of oil, marbles, and caltrops held in a bag of holding. These things together, emptied on top of the crowd of cultists created a sufficient distraction to halt the ritual. After a long battle with their cult leader and a group of mind flayers in attendance, we scattered the congregation. Our party dragon shaman, in triumph shouted "Where is your God Now". In a moment of face palming irony, the walls of the ruins came down to reveal "a snake that dwarfed whales in terms of its size" Feeling the magic return to the room, myself and the barbarian stepped forward and simply sai "We got this" We charged at the beast leaving the party to escape.

    5 rounds later we were lodged in its throat using our armor spikes, blasting the monster from the inside. finally, realizig i was about to die, allowed myself to slide into the monsters stomach where I detonated 10 blast disks. This, on top of the fact that I was apparently posessed by a balor, who also exploded, managed to kill the giant snake, and the party barbarian.

    This giant snake turned out to be sertreus, the elder evil.

    The gods that day smiled at the heroes who slew a beast capable of destroying the world.

    The barbarian became a risen marter (+2 template from the BOED), and was immediatly brought back to life

    On the other hand, the dm really has no idea what to give my character for all of this. My character is chaotic neutral to the extreme. He is a mad scientist themed artificer who is at the moment hanging out with the slaad in limbo (they think my character is totally awesome). Basically my dm is looking for a reward to give me based on my time hanging out with the slaad in tha chaos of limbo, but as far as I know there is no template that is really appropriate for this. My dm would much rather give me more class abilities than items, and the campaign is level by dm fiat. I will already be brought back to life at the same lvl as the rest of the party.

    No suggestion is too silly for this campaign

    That goes without saying.
    Chaos creature template should do.

    I'd start with immunity to fear, but it sounds like you might already have that.

    Perhaps the Pseudonatural template, as the fthagn energies from the Elder Evil suffuse your mortal body, which is incapable of handling such things?

    Make some piece of the corpse contain the god's essence that the artificer can drain an infinite amount of xp from for crafting. It's a heck of a nice reward, but moderated that he still needs the gold for the components and the in-game time to craft stuff.

    The chaotic "unfinished" template from Planar Handbook might work nicely. It grants fast healing, some energy resistance, smite law, and eventually damage reduction.

    Thanks for the suggestions,

    Well, I would make some random charts with buffs, and have the player roll on the charts to see what he gets.

    lol, my thought too.

    Sounds like a lot of DM fiat actually =P. Plot Convenience Antimagic Field, and the Balor Ex Machina death throes.

    Very amusing scene though!

    I was reading through the first post and I was like, "Wait, what the hell is a yui tan..." And then I realized he meant yuan-ti. Not to mention, it's Sertrous. :P

    The gods would definitely bestow some kind of blessing on you, maybe some nuts template.

    You mean Anarchic, right? I looked that up just now, and I noticed something odd when comparing it to Axiomatic. The LA for Axiomatic is base creature +4, but for Anarchic it's just +5. In the spirit of an Anarchic creature, I now choose to believe that the +5 overrides any LA you may have had before that. I'm thinking Anarchic Troll sounds good. I'd stack more templates on, but I'm sure that would jinx it.

    Paragon Template. Because you're a goddamned paragon of insanity.
    Now if you don't mind, I am somewhat preoccupied telling the laws of physics to shut up and sit down.
    I cast irresistable phantasmal killer as a 4th level spell. No save, just die.

    You want chaos? How about a random chance of activating a wild magic effect whenever you attack?

    'course, your wild magic list will need to be something that won't screw your party members over, but it could be fun.

    This is a god? Man, this is dissapointing.

    I really liked ability to spellcast in AMF, snakes being very intimate with magic (Mershaulk, Pun Pun, etc ...) but to have a God killed with spikes and 10 blast disks? That is just silly.

    I think PCs should lvl-up and wake up, realising their victory was just a dream (they all failed five consecutive DC 233 Will saves) ... chained, with regeneration ability in a cursed extraplanar bog, where they are eaten by little snake worms who also lay their eggs in their bodies. Forever.

    Such is power of gods, moreover evil, magic-attuned, snake gods.

    10 blast disks. Oh my ...

    You know those feats one gets for worshiping an elder evil?

    Get a couple of those for killing it.

    You might hate Conan when killed a similar god.

    You may be thinking of ultimate power gods: But greek/Norse gods theme exist too.
    The Greek/Norse are powerful but killable.
