    I can't remember the last time I posted homebrew here...

    Anyway, I've got a soulknife/paladin class up; just needs class skills and some more fluff.

    Does it have to be a 10-level PrC? The concept I want to do requires at least 14 levels between the two bases, so I squeezed everything I wanted to do with it into 6 levels.

    Also, if one of the requirements is feat made specifically for the PrC, do I list that in the entry?

    So I think I'm actually going to do something a little cheeky this time around (since apparently my shadow dragon idea has been done... bah) and grab one of the more obscure base classes I can think of to pair with my precious DFA.

    Eidolon and Dragonfire Adept will be combined! And yes, there will be a way for them to deal with not having a Con score and their breath being based on Con.

    Current Contest Entries:

    Prestige Class Contest: In the Shadows -The Ghost Wyrm

    Base Class Contest: Altar of Naught - The Nihilist

    Monster Competition: Beings of Legend - The Omni Template

    As this is my first time entering something like this, the area I'm having the most trouble with is creating the Sample Encounter. I'm more of a PC than a DM so I'm not that well-versed in creating NPCs by EL and such. Any tips, guidelines, or suggestions on how to do so would be much appreciated.

    Good to know that it's not required but it's still something I want to add since it's the only part of my entry that's still blank.

    Use the following link, taking non-monster race NPCs' levels-2 for CR.

    http://www.d20srd.org/extras/d20encountercalculator/

    This will help with calculating EL.

    Thanks. Do I adjust the CR for creating it using the standard array and giving it the appropriate WBL?

    It needs a couple more class features and some more fluff down at the bottom, but the Ibis Knight is mostly complete.

    Although now I notice that there is a class that references Voltron, so I have already lost.

    That would be the end result of a stroke of creativity fueled by adderall and the brewing bug, the Mecha Sentai. I didn't even mean to put Voltron into the lore until after I wrote the Ultra Mecha Zord ability and had to stay true to my roots. Every bit of my fandom that has to do with robots and such links back to Voltron.

    Wouldn't have it any other way.

    Honestly, if I do anything with robots I have to reference Voltron or MegaMan at least once.

    So, does the class actually have to advance any of the features of the original two classes? As in, do I have to advance casting if I require it to get into the class?

    Not sure if it's a requirement, but in the case of casting, I find it hard to think of a PrC with casting entry requirements without any casting progression, hybrid or otherwise. Spellcarved Soldier is the only thing that comes to mind and I'd hardly call that a hybrid PrC.

    I was thinking of essentially creating a new spellcasting mechanic that better combines psionics and divine magic.

    Oh, uh, Necroon, I just realized, there's no way that a Thousand-Petaled Spell Disciple would be able to prepare Thousand-Petaled spell, as by level 20, even with maximum wizard levels, (4 monk/1 wizard/10 DotTPS/5 wizard), as his highest realistic caster level would be 11, which only allows for 6th-level spells.

    That shouldn't be an issue as far I see then, as it still fits the hybrid theme. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

    It's true. You need 2 more spell per day levels to reach 7th level spells.

    hmm
    ... you would think after 8+ years of playing a wizard I'd be able to count levels and spells known better...
    thank you.

    [Edit]
    Hmmm... on second thought: Am I missing something? A 13th level wizard has access to 7th level spells.
    Wizard 3/Monk 4/Disciple of the Thousand-Petaled Spell 10?

    [EDIT 2] the above is an example of me failing at math. Hard. Changed to a 6th level spell.

    After giving the Disciple of the Thousand Petal Spell a thorough look, necroon, I noticed two things. You missed the other 7th level reference in Thousand Petal Spell. Also Arcane Enlightenment could use some clarification as to which level you use to determine your SR, class level or character level.

    Other than that, that class looks pretty badass. I actually think that a Witch could get even better mileage out of the class than a Wizard by reducing her reliance on summons and adding damage to her debuffs.

    Yes I did: Thank you Muchly.

    I should have written "Character Level" - an oversight on my part. Clarified.

    Thank you!
    I agree whole-heatedly (although I admit that wasn't the original intention just an added bonus). Plus if your a which you can grapple your opponent with your mustache and than hit them in the face with a shocking-grasp-kick. Totally worth the imagery, in my opinion.
