    Should do Sephiroth too. Monkey Gripped oversized Daikatana, probably with epic feats. Probably jotunbrood just to make Masamune adequately oversized. Size huge on that thing, at least.

    Odd...I don't see him as a Bard, particularly given that his spells are almost always Evocation spells. I see him a bit closer to Warmage or Sorcerer. Agree with Wild Mage, though.

    Race should obviously be Human. He eventually ascends to deity, but he's nonetheless starting as a human.

    Alignment is very simple: Chaotic Evil. No less, no more.

    Class has a variety of options, but the one that I feel would fit him most would be Sorcerer with Fiendish Heritage (and subsequent feats), Stalwart Sorcerer ACF (to give him proficiency with Light or Heavy Flails, his signature weapon) and something to replace his Familiar (or no familiar at all). Alternatively (since the theme fits and it has all the spells he'd normally use), Warmage; he was a former military genius, he's more intelligent than you'd think (just utterly insane), and has devious Charisma despite looking like a clown (or harlequin). Then, I see him taking levels in Wild Mage, with probably a slight detour into Havoc Mage from Miniatures Handbook. If taking all levels in Havoc Mage and then in Wild Mage, he should have CL 18th for his spells, making him a veritable menace.

    Spell Selection is somewhat fixed: he's an Evoker, first and foremost. He likes the spells that go boom. Being chaotic, though, he may choose Avasculate as a spell. As a secondary specialty, he might choose, oddly enough, one or two mass buffing spells (Haste, for example), befitting his time as a military commander (the assumption is that he was a Marshal before being infused with Magic, and then his insanity served as a retraining for Sorcerer or Warmage). Finding him a way to cast stuff like Disguise Self is a must, whether as Sorcerer (he can simply take it) or Warmage (harder to add).

    Skill Selection would probably shift between the requirements for Wild Mage (Knowledge [arcana], Spellcraft, UMD), Knowledge (architecture and engineering) and Knowledge (history) since those are the skills of military officers, and maybe Bluff and Disguise. Particularly those two: bluffing the Returners into thinking he was captured and using illusions to disguise as Emperor Gestahl definitely fit the bill.

    Feat Selection involves getting the requirements for Wild Mage (Magical Aptitude, Metamagic School Focus [evocation]), and maybe the Fiendish Heritage line of feats for extra abilities.

    Note, though, that his progression is slow but certain. He starts as a Stalwart Sorcerer or Warmage, then delves into Havoc Mage (which is where you'd find him on the Imperial Camp near Doma or during the fight in Narshe), then he level-grinds into Wild Mage and beyond when he starts capturing Espers. He should be right around 20th level when he ascends by means of the Warring Triad, and by 2 years he probably has a divine rank of 10 or something (the minimum for greater deity, IIRC). His unique powers in the last battle (and the Light of Judgment) are written off as Epic spells.

    Note that this is only brainstorming for ideas: this is no specific example of how the build should be made. I just think that, despite his clownish attitude, he's not the Bard type (even with replacing Inspire Courage for Inspire Hatred and stuff like that).

    I'll begin sorting it alphabetically now, thanks for the suggestion. Could you read the initial post and format them as such, and specify which Mortal Kombat game you're referring to? There are quite a lot of them.

    If you want to get technical with Arthas, he's a gestalt.

    Arthas himself is a paladin/black guard with an expanded spell list, and could be as simple as a necropolitan. I know that's not as fancy as he could be.

    He is gestalted with Nerzhul, who is a necromancer with some evocation, or possibly a sorcerer focused in the two schools.

    I uh... I think so. It's also something of a planetary infestation. It'd be more accurate to say that Gohma Vlitra is the planet itself, but the evil of the planet can be destroyed without harming the planet.

    Also the main face (as well as all of the spiked tentacles as you called them) can all shoot focused, incredibly powerful beams of energy from their mouths.

    arthas is, because mechanically, Deathknight doesnt translate. Jergmo is technically incorrect, because alot of the Blackguard/Antipaladin abilties dont really match with the abilities for DKs (as DKs in warcraft are battle necromancers, not generic evil)

    There is probably some unholy amalgamation you can build that represents them as such, but nothing comes to mind.

    I did some checking, and it turns out Gohma Vlitra is "the embodiment of the planet's rage".

    I'm not sure what to think about this, because that means the planet itself is alive and that Gohma Vlitra is something created by the planet.

    There is probably some unholy amalgamation you can build that represents them as such, but nothing comes to mind.
    Hm... I'll look into Arthas, but I'm not going to mark it as in-progress yet.

    Well, he could be a cleric. There are domains and spells from Libris Mortis that have Cold spells, and clerics are generally best at commanding hordes of undead (with the exception of Dread Necro.)

    Or, for something like Death Coil, he could be a cleric/sorcerer true necromancer, for Finger of Death.

    It's not optimal, but the Warcraft RPG has The Lich King statted as a CR 40 monstrosity. He has levels to spare.

    Me: The kind that armies have been using for millennia.
    DM: They didn't do it with swords!
    Me: Which makes us so much cooler.

    Player: Where are the babau in relation to everyone else?
    Me: They're right behind you. Vesil is covered in Loki's blood. That is their location in relation to you.
    Player: I was just wondering about a fireball.
