    Ditto. I will make no further mention of certain trends I have been noticing with certain, unnamed characters that I would like to stop.

    This thread has really exploded. Someone posted, like, 5 at once. I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Indeed, Morph would be another decent poster to deify. All the Homebrew, and Compiled Lists.

    Lord_Gareth is a rather cruel god, creating inspired works of art with horrific powers and destinies. His creations inevitably invoke some kind of madness, and either wreak destruction upon their foes or endure it themselves. One tale of Lord_Gareth tells of how he fought a primeval force of evil; upon its defeat, he cut it to bits on his enchanted ouija cutting board, and attached the little pieces to souls that flew by his realm on the way to rebirth on the Material Plane. These souls, known as Harrowed, are forced to share a body with an evil force of destruction for all eternity; not even death grants them respite. Apparently, Lord_Gareth did this "because it sounded fun."

    For all his cruelty, though, Lord_Gareth is not truly evil. He seems to have some good intent in his actions; namely, the pleasing and abetting of mysterious entities, known only as "other forum users." These users seem to give Lord_Gareth his divine power, as he has few worshipers- those who learn of his presence tend to go mad from the knowledge, and those who don't seem like they did anyway.

    Show
    Although I haven't viewed all of Lord_Gareth's homebrew or posts, I am a big fan of his Harrowed and Malefactor base classes, and I've considered using his alignment system when I become a more experience DM. Most of what I know comes from his homebrew, and if I got anything wrong or left important aspects out I apologize.
    Eh...to be frank I'm not terribly impressed.

    Anyone can take a swing at me, if they wish. Not sure if writing a handbook gets me anything here =P

    I'll see what I can do about deifying one of the other members. Maybe Lord Gareth wants a new statblock?

    Haven't you been approached by anyone asking for advice about Druid builds?

    I suggest that you look into ways to give a Druid a natural Flight Speed and Breath Weapon, or to get 3 (or more) Natural Attacks in their natural form, y'know so they can qualify for Feats that would be very useful to have in certain Wild Shape forms.
    It'd certainly give you the chance to look a little deeper into the Druid's Tier 3 Class Ability.

    A couple of times, but not infinitely.

    The first two are pretty doable with dragonborn, and you could probably handle the third with shifter. Shifters are sweet. I dunno if flight based feats are strictly necessary though. You'd mostly be looking for hover, and you can get that for free off of any monster with good maneuverability. That's one of the many many reasons that desmodu hunting bats are awesome, cause they might actually be the only animal at small or medium with good maneuverability. Anyways, I've been spending most of my time on spell stuff, because that stretches on forever, and because it's one of the biggest inadequacies that I've found in existing handbooks. Seriously, the spell list got recycled across all of them, and you end up with stuff like three separate handbooks advising the use of dessicate because it deals 1d6/level, when it really deals 1d6/2 levels. Frigging weird.

    Dogma:
    Psyren teaches the honing of one's mind until one can affect the world with a mere thought. As long as his followers use psychic or mental abilities to resolve their issues, or to help them resolve their issues, they are following Psyren's teachings.

    Clergy and Temples:
    Psyren's followers are typically Psions or other psionic creatures. They seek to hone their mental abilities and use their minds to accomplish their goals. They often keep dull grey ioun stones to help mark them as followers of Psyren.

    Psyren's temples are often structures crafted entirely from crystal, and filled with various gems and psionic crystals. Any psionic creature is treated warmly, however, non-psionic creatures are often regarded as strangers and treated somewhat coldly.


    Anyone who I did feel free to give feedback. (You guys have my permission, but I doubt anybody would be interested in doing me)
    *sniff* It's beautiful Much appreciated.

    I'm not sure I'd be a greater deity though - my few works (i.e. handbooks) tend to be on the smaller scale of the spectrum, not system-wide affairs like Urpriest's monster guide, and are perpetually undergoing renovation besides.

    What do you think would be a good way to incorporate that?

    (Also, to explain how I decided your deity ranking, Psyren, I used part how well I recognize your name/expertise, part how many times I've seen your name used by other people [particularly in threads where you were not posting], and partly by your "X in the Playground" title, and I felt you qualified.)

    I propose that someone stat up a swarm-god of all the folks eager to give permission to have themselves made into deities, but have preluded it with "no one knows me off the top of their head, but..." Good rule-of-thumb: if you oughtta be started up as a GITP Forum god, you probably shouldn't have to ask. Oh, and Oko and Qailee, I figure Kish is more more Lawful Good than Lawful Neutral; I mean, c'mon, read those Vorkosigan quotes. Of course I'm only saying this because I usually agree with Kish and The Giant and am therefore Rich Burlew as well.
