    Default Sorcerer Villain Handbook: TIER 1 NIGHTMARE

    Hello Guys,

    Many DMs have serious problems against a tier 1 group.
    So , I prepared a villain who can help them to have a challenge the height of an optimized group.

    The sorcerer is considered tier 2 , then it will be optimized for defeat rather easily the most powerful Wizards , clerics and druids, Archivists.

    This villain was created by minimum rules for a viable game:
    1) Limited Contingency Spells
    2) Limited Summons
    3) Gestalt Disallowed
    4) No Infinite Loops ( Infinite Feat, Manipulate Form, etc )
    5) Leadership allowed, but the cohort or minion can't be optimized
    6) Epic feat, item and class Disallowed


    Lord of the Chains

    "The son of a vampire dragon was killed by treachery of the old wizards and trapped by chains.
    to hell to die with great suffering.
    Kidnapped as a child by a group of assassins to develop their skills and be used as a slave.
    By his great power of persuasion was trained to command large troops of assassins .
    A powerful Erudite found the origins of the leader , thus offering major challenges outside the fortress , which just so we could show the real magic.
    During his adventure the erudite said about his father's death , there were people who usurp the magic."

    "Lately the academies of magic and great divine centers are being destroyed , it is for PLAYERS discover the reason for the massacre."

    The villain hunting targets preparing spells and magic are not inherent in his soul and blood.
    For the villain they learn the magic , are weak and usurp the magic of true arcana .
    dread Necromancers
    Favored Souls
    and all spontaneous spellcasters can survive if they are legion allies.

    " You learn magic, weak. I am the magic. "

    Skill check detail: Improvisation Spell: +26 skill check
    “You gain access to a floating "pool" of luck, which manifests as bonus points you can use as desired to improve your odds of success at various tasks. This bonus pool consists of 2 points per caster level, which you can spend as you like to improve attack rolls, skill checks, and ability checks, although no single check can receive a bonus greater than one-half your caster level. You must declare any bonus point usage before the appropriate roll is made. Used points disappear from the pool, and any points remaining when the spell ends are wasted. These points count as luck bonuses for the purpose of stacking.

    For example, a 14th-level bard pauses while chasing a pickpocket to cast improvisation. At any time during the next 14 rounds, he could use the points to provide himself a +7 luck bonus on a Spot check, a +7 luck bonus on a Climb check, and a +7 luck bonus on two of his attacks.”

    Is the challenge to kill it? How does it deal with a supernatural holy word with the caster level boosted up to I don't know, 40 or so?

    This vaguely reminds me of a character some guy made a year or two ago, positing that his sorcerer was unbeatable, due to Arcane Fusion shenanigans.

    Hellow

    I do not think that is a big problem , The villain have level 60 CL ,
    Transcend Mortality Spell
    Evil Weather spell can be a great problem here .
    there are many resources out of this villain .
    There are also many features , including activating the contigency condition .

    So I would say it would be very difficult the cleric act first and to identify their real enemy .
    Detail: Epic Bluff, you cant know the vilain true alignment.

    Holy word isn't a death effect and it being supernatural means that it ignores spell resistance. Also ignores counter spells and dispel magic. If your hit dice is far enough below the caster level, you die. No save, no spell resistance, no attack roll.

    Indeed. About the only thing Vampire's OP doesn't have that Lord Drako's had was pictures of male casters showing off their sick abs.

    Wait, is this admittance of him having a second account? Isn't having multiple accounts on the forums against the ToS? Especially if your other account was banned?

    Seems to be the case.

    Multiple/Alternate Accounts
    Each individual user may maintain one active account on the Giant in the Playground forums. Registering more than one account, including the use of identified alternate accounts, is not allowed. Likewise, shared or group accounts are not permitted. Though there are several legitimate advantages to such accounts, particularly in the role-play environment, these accounts are too easily abused and allow rule violators too many additional options to avoid the repercussions of their actions to be allowed.

    If a user is found to have multiple accounts, all but the main account (the one with the most posts) will be closed, and any Infractions earned under the alternate accounts will be transferred to the main. Deliberate and/or malicious violations of this rule could result in an infraction or ban.
    Previously Banned Users
    Any user found to have been banned while using a different account will have his or her new account banned as well. If it is found that another user is allowing a previously banned user to post using his or her account, or is posting on behalf of a previously banned user, the account of that user will also be banned.
    EDIT: Also, allow me to say this before the thread gets locked: this villain's backstory is incredibly cliched and trite.

    ...that happened. What you're looking for is "Previously Banned Users", under "Bannable Offenses". Oh, someone's beat me to the actual posting of the rule, awesome.

    No can do, sorry. Before, we at least had plausible deniability (we couldn't know for sure it was LD posting from a new account), but now...well, he admitted it. Nothing to it but to report it.

    A epic bluff use a false alignment. So, inside the game is impossible know your true alignment.

    Yeah, sure, fine, whatever. But I've played a Warlock who just spams Detect Magic every time I enter a room, as well as a Paladin who spammed Detect Evil. Might be I'm playing a particularly virtuous Cleric who sees necromantic unseelie fey looking hellbred, and decided he needed a good Smiting?

    I'm afb and not familiar with evil spell weather. It's not hard for a cleric to cast in an anti magic field though. Does it specifically go through those?

    For going first, I'd just get immunity to daze and use celerity. Throw on a few contingencies that are keyed to random words like omgwtfbbq. Pretty sure you run out of immediate actions before I'd run out of contingencies.

    I also don't see why alignment matters. Can just get a cohort/mindraped minion to cast a similar blasphemy.

    Dweomerkeeper is an easy way to get a supernatural ability at whatever caster level you want.

    Firstly, Epic Bluff can only prevent alignment detection, not spells that directly affect people of a certain alignment; using Epic Bluff to pretend to be good doesn't let you ignore the damage from a Smite Evil.

    Secondly, Epic Bluff can be combatted by epic Sense Motive.

    Thirdly, even if Epic Bluff effectively changes your alignment in regards to spells that affect creatures of a certain alignment, there's spells that target multiple such alignments, and you can't block all of them at the same time (since even Epic Bluff only lets you mimic one fake alignment at a time), so just somebody tossing both Holy Word and Blasphemy at you will do the trick.

    You keep using this as a defense, but isn't a very good one. Before, you were "helping" players. How is this different?

    I'll second that. Oh boy, another brooding emo with a mysterious past and childhood pains that drove him/her to evil. That's about as original as a dual wielding, repentant dark elf.

    EDIT: Also, how exactly is this a handbook? It's just a build. There's no substantive advice on how to run a "Nightmare" villain for Tier Ones (which would be an admittedly cool handbook) beyond "look at this kool trick", and even that's just included as part of the build.
