    Draconic Kobold - A less powerful version of Half-Dragon that is tailored towards Kobolds.
    Kitten of Endless Decanters - A kitten that can shoot empty decanters out of it's mouth to harm those who would threaten her nap.

    So, I have a "quote", bold, and italics addiction (parenthesis too), forgive me if I use them too much in posts, or too often in threads.

    For games that I play and/or DM, I offer to draw out grids for combat. If you are a DM for a game I play in, just ask via PM and I will do so.

    Yes, I intentionnaly grammar and spelling bad just to argravate you.

    Post Re: The Homebrewer's Extended Signature

    My Campaign Setting (collective world building so you should check it out and help me make it!)

    My 1st Handbook: the Eidolon Handbook.

    Check out my complete list of obscure 3.5 base classes from both WotC and 3rd party publishers (over 400 classes) here.

    Wuxia in a feat.

    Participate in my homebrew contest: The Golden Cauldron Contest!!!! It's awesome. Do it.

    Quick and easy soulknife fix.

    The Orc, my rewrite.
    The Zelda Races, such as the goron, zora, sheikah, gerudo, and kokiri.
    The Elf, my own personal take. Pretty overpowered to be honest.
    The Drow, although this rewrite really only got the LA down. Nothing unique here.
    The Voldur. I'm enormously proud of this, it's awesome, and it's a half-orc elf. Please take a look.
    The Sserikon, which is like yuan-ti without LA or RHD.
    The half-orc rewrite, my best received homebrew.
    The Kelgrym, a half-orc kobold. Sort of weird, but cool.
    The Half-elf redux that isn't nearly as cool as my half-orc
    The Demirci, which is definitely worth a look. Breeds an orc with another homebrew race.

    Base Classes
    The Hero, a very broad class to encompass the fantasy archetype of an awesome hero.
    The Spartan, my first initiator class.
    The Enkarni, a warrior that summons a powerful avatar.
    The Focus Knight a maneuver based soulknife fix.
    The Proteus <--Worth taking a look at.
    The Chosen Warrior. It's inspired by Link, from the Legend of Zelda, so if that's your thing (or you want a more versatile, Tier 3 melee class who doesn't use maneuvers) you should definitely check this out.
    The Zealot. Considering it's my first ever homebrew...not too bad I guess. Check it out if you'd like a slightly meaner Paladin.
    The Eremite. Kind of cool wizard/monk hybrid. It needs work, but it's in the backwaters of my mind for now. Probably going to do a "fix."
    The Ebon Knight. Very cool shadowy melee class. Needs a bit of an expansion.
    One of millions of fighter fixes.

    Weapon of Destiny: A class for your sword, so that you dont have to pump money into it.

    Non Updated Classes:
    Master Combat Engineer. He dungeoncrawls with heavy weapons
    Guardian Sentinel. The mobs get stuck between a rock and a hard place. He is the Hard Place.
    The Combatant: Framework class that gets lots and lots of choices.
    The Marine: His landing craft took a wrong turn at Albuquerque

    High and Dark elf Redo
    Half Orcish Dwarves

    Kirby: Hes pink, hes cuddly, he eats tarrasque.

    Toapat's Feat Thread: Keeping em all in once place, nice and simple

    Former Projects:
    The Templar: Paladin replace that gives them some crazy abilities.
    Paladin nonbrew: A greatest Hits album of paladin, taking some of the best Substitution class features and working them into a base class.
    Paladin: A paladin replacement that makes them into anti-spell knights

    Current Projects:
    My current long term project is to develop a DnD high-fantasy rewrite.
    Project Objectives:
    • Balance magic without making everyone a magic user.
    • Make the world grittier than 3.5.
    • Make the system PbP friendly (minimize opposed checks and other issues that require multiple posts to complete a turn)
    Current Status
    I've goten the system skeleton put together, but filling in and balancing all the little details needs work. I'll eventually start posting threads for that purpose.

    Recent HomeBrews:
    --[Mechanic] Limb-Loss. Ever notice home many methods there are to reattach or regenerate lost limbs? Ever notice how difficult it is to actually loose one? This rule set gives Heal Checks additional importance and allows regeneration to see use.
    --[MiniGame rules] Ice Hockey Inspired by the upcoming Winer Olympics one fall, I tired to create a rule system.
    --[Race] Non Generic Humans I was annoyed at how hard it is to find a LA0 race with a charisma bonus, and wished humans had unique defining characteristics. This race remake solved both issues.

    The Menagerie

    Monster classes

    Base Classes

    Hedge witches that focus on curses and divinations. Their trademark ability is the malocchio (evil eye), a grave curse that interacts with a hexblade's curse, making each other impossible to resist. They also use a power called maleficium to enhance their malocchio, spells, or defenses, and can form a coven with other arcane casters to share spell knowledge.

    An invoker that uses his enemies' blood—and his own—as a weapon. Unlike Warlocks, who focus on damage, and Dragonfire Adepts, who focus on battlefield control, Hæmaturges excel at enfeebling their enemies and empowering themselves. Comes with thirty-six new invocations, two ACFs, two sets of substitution levels, two magic items, and five feats.

    Prestige Classes

    Martial Knight of the Raven
    Knight of the Raven is a prestige class from Expedition to Castle Ravenloft, dedicated to using divine magic to combat the undead. This adaptation instead uses maneuvers and stances to fight the undead scourge.
    Yee Naaldlooshii
    The skinwalker from Navajo legend is a wise man or wise woman who practices a twisted mockery of the Witchery Way. By skinning animals or humans and then wearing their pelts they can take their form. This prestige class aims to capture the feel of the Yee Naaldlooshii, which can transform itself into an ever widening number of creatures, and can eventually create patchwork skins, taking the best qualities from each pelt to become a horrible, powerful abomination.
    Viridian Aspirant
    When civilization encroaches on the forests, some druids and priests of holy groves use the power of animals to preserve the wood. Viridian Aspirants look to the trees. They gradually take on aspects of trees, eventually becoming a Greenman. (Yes, this is inspired by my avatar.)
    Most know Bacchus as the god of wine and revelry. Few remember that he bestowed upon his followers a madness wherein they both saw the future and attacked the uninitiated in a blood frenzy. By imbibing sacred wine, Maenads enter an orgiastic frenzy, vastly increasing their spellcasting power.
    Dwarven Wandwright*
    Dwarves, as everyone knows, are the only race that knows the secret of creating magic items without casting spells. They guard this secret by restricting the travel of their artificers. This makes it difficult to provide versatile magic support to dwarven armies. Dwarven Wandwrights have limited training in creating magic items--they specialize in making and using wands--and so are less of a security risk, but they learn many new tricks to provide the magic that is essential to overcoming enemies of the dwarves.
    Livewood Daughter
    Dryads make poor adventurers, what with their inability to leave their trees. Some make their homes in livewood trees, however, which remain alive after being felled. When a livewood tree with a bound dryad is cut down to make a cabinet, a spear, or a ship, its new owner often finds himself facing the wrath of an angry dryad that seeks to take back possession of her tree.

    Some that succeed take up adventuring, enchanting their tree as a magic item: a fetish. These are the livewood daughters

    Twice-Bound Soul (WIP)
    There are many forms of forbidden power, but the greatest of them are pacts with devils and with vestiges. Twice-bound souls have signed their immortal souls away not just once, like many warlocks or binders, but many times. This provides them with great power, but comes at a cost. While their vestigial and diabolic patrons work together to empower them, once they die their soul is kept in chains so it cannot be stolen by the other powers that lay claim to it. Despite this, no few souls have made these faustian bargains and so wreaked havoc against their enemies.

    Inspired Inventor
    Most artificers pride themselves on their ability to carefully craft works of beauty and power. Not the inspired inventor.

    Inspired inventors build insane contraptions—widgets, gadgets, whirligigs, and gizmos—from cogs and wheels and whatever they have lying around their shops, and rely on flashes of inspiration to get their inventions to work. Their inventions aren't based on elegant theories of magic, either; they're mechanical, alchemical, or biological, and so fuction even when magic could not. And their inventions rarely have any subtlety to them: no graceful wands, but plenty of explosions, traps, and machines belching smoke and fire.

    The three soulmelds that make up the raiment of the night—the dusk gloves, the twilight cloak, and the midnight vestments—draw upon the souls of deceased thieves, saboteurs, enchanters, ninjas, illusionists, spies, and even those mortals affected by the blood of Vecna, whose only connection to the world is the imprint their soul left on incarnum. They bestow the power to hide from enemies, to trick them, to blind them, and to craft spells that bypass their defenses and ensnare them in webs of shadow and deceit.

    Anyone, with some knowledge and skill, can learn to shape one or two of the raiment's members, but to truly master them takes skill at deception and magic in addition to meldshaping. These rare meldshaper-mages are the nightwearers.

    Faerie Champion
    When a powerful fey needs to cheat, to lie, to steal, or to kill a mortal, she takes a mortal champion. In exchange for his servitude he gains a measure of the faeries' glamour and a devoted fey ally.

    Faerie Court Mage
    Faerie magic is limited. While the fair folk excel at corrupting minds, misleading their enemies, and creating fabulous illusions, they have difficulty with more concrete magic: the manipulation of the elements, changing things in essence and not merely in seeming, and seeing the true natures of things. Thus enters the Faerie Court Mage.

    A mage pledged to the service of a powerful fey gains particular expertise in the magic beloved of the fey and some of their resilience. At the zenith of his power, a Faerie Court Mage gains the ability to create a stronghold in Faerie itself.

    Faerie-Thrall Liberator
    According to a Fairie-Thrall Liberator, those who treat with fey or call them "fair folk" are misguided at best and indifferent to the suffering of others at worst. Fey are little more than entitled princes, taking whatever and whomever they please. And the Faerie Thrall Liberator means to stop that.

    Those who take on this dangerous task gain access to special incantations against faeries and protection against their glamour. Moreover, they gain the ability to share this power with rescued thralls so they can make good their escape.

    Unprotected Casting Skill*

    Spellshaping (Subsystem):
    A system of magic similar to the Tome of Battle system of martial maneuvers. More information can be found in the discussion and rules threads.

    Base Classes:
    • Dementist - Summoning creatures formed from your own insane recollections. Good times.
    • Quixotic Knight - Because, secretly, everyone wants to tilt at windmills.

    Class Rewrites:
    • Bard - As it turns out, the scop wasn't known for its abilities with magic.
    • Jester - Who would hire a dangerous magic-user as an entertainer, anyway?

    Monster Rewrites:
    • Elementals - Air and fire elementals shouldn't have natural armor. Now, they don't.

    Variant Rules:

    Most of my useful contributions are fairly small, discrete modifications or additions. That's not to say I don't dream big sometimes, but I rarely finish my larger ideas.

    For the most part, I 'brew for 3.5, as that is the system I am most comfortable in. I also will often critique work done in that or PF; if you want another eye on your work, feel free to PM me and I'll see what I can do.

    If you use any of these, please drop me a line! I'd love to hear how they worked out. Also, if you have a suggestion but the thread's been idle past the necromancy mark, send me a PM about it and I'll see what I can do.

    Largely Complete
    Magical Transference (because that cloak of resistance +5 is such a tacky color, darling!)
    Attune Focus (sometimes you really want to retrieve your spellcasting stuff)
    Annihilating material components (joke components are stupid, so let's throw them out and make something sensible)
    Protection from Arrows, fixed (because DR 10/magic is ignorable even at level 3 much of the time, and nigh-useless by level 7 at the latest)
    Organic Point Buy (a blend of PB and rolling I don't think anyone has thought of before, to hopefully get the best parts of each)
    Coup de grace = auto 20 (to make vorpal weapons and a few other corner cases work more sensibly)
    Equalization (a weapon for monks to use in restoring order and balance)
    Replacing the Phylactery of Faithfulness (needing a magic item tax for something your character should be able to figure out doesn't make much sense)
    Persistent Spell (3.5 metamagic fix) (persist is either too weak or too potent; here's a better try)
    Ranged Aid Another (the ability to fire volleys more intelligently)
    Unambigously allowing psicrystals to manifest and focus (because some DMs don't like the funkiness of letting psicrystals take psionic feats without restriction)
    A Hidden Stairway of Light (spell inspired by those fictional hard-to-see paths only a believer can tread)
    Turn concealment into flat AC bonus (a houserule with some significant ramifications)
    Stacking Resist Energy (spell to deal with that annoying interaction with protection from energy)
    Rogue-friendly Knock/Find Traps replacements (simple spell fixes)
    Reducing Friendly Fire (metamagic feat + ritual)
    Maze of Sleepy Repletion (a spell to emulate The Hobbit, in Mirkwood)
    Buried in History/Lorewhelm (two spells for that bookworm in your group)

    Works in Progress
    Orbs of logical energy (3.5 spell fix) (an orb of mundane acid that magically does sonic damage right out of the box is one of the stupidest things ever)
    New Undead type and Turn Undead rules (3.5 fix) (because 20 HD zombies at CR 6 are an abomination)
    Epic Spellcasting (3.5 fix) (like Monk or Fighter fixes, everybody has one)
    Scale Concentration by damage per round (an attempt at making Concentration checks harder across the board)
    Speak Language as a normal skill (a kind of stupid houserule idea to make Speak Language the sort of skill you can actually make checks for)
    Will Points and other vague ideas (parallel to hit points; a rare system-wide change idea)
    Enabling (Ex) Hypnosis (new skill usage)

    The Munchkarut (an inevitable of game disruption)
    Gummi Bears (3.5 joke monster) (Exactly What It Says On The Tin)
    New alignment system (D&D any) (a satire against reductionist alignment solutions)

    My pride and joy
    Vancian to Psionics, my attempt to convert the whole of core 3.5 vancian spellcasting over to psionic mechanics. Spells were converted individually to fit the psionic system, along with the base and prestige classes, and most other things that pertain to spells and spellcasting.

    Base Classes
    The Fighter Incarnate, a Fighter replacement originally inspired by Incarnum mechanics, intended to decrease magic item reliance and enable some crazier stunts.
    The Martial Dilettante, a Factotum variant to make it a more mundane (ToB) class.
    The Tashalatoran Monk, a Monk replacement based on the Psychic Warrior focused on easy 3.5 integration.
    The Tinkerer, a silly class using anachronistic gadgets. Uses Incarnum mechanics.

    Prestige Classes
    The War Mind, an overhaul of the XPH class, introducing ToB elements.
    The Enrathian Sky Knight, a ToB class that makes you a hippogriff rider.

    Baleful Resurrection. Brings people back... but wrong.
    Lesser True Seeing. Shows you all things as they really are, which happens to drive you crazy.

    Poisons for Advanced Scoundrels, a poison overhaul that takes out the two-save paradigm and replaces it with individual poison statblocks.
    Diablo 2 monster templates, a way to very quickly make a monster into a boss monster and give it a "theme".
    Gold. A (kind of crazy) fluff explanation with a minor crunch attachment.
    A Speak Language revision for games where language barriers are supposed to be significant.

    I call myself Ideasmith (or ideasmith) on this and other gaming sites. I started playing and GMing D&D in the mid-1970s (at which time house rules were inevitable) and have been homebrewing ever since. I have a large collection of RPG books, about half or which are 3.5-compatible, and surprisingly little of which was published by WotC.

    My homebrew postings assume that the core books are in use, including all races, classes, skills, feats, equipment, etc., this being what gamers have the most practice correcting from. I also assume other books are in use, but don't make assumptions about which books. When use of a homebrew I post requires more than the core books and itself, I include a link thereto.

    Also, I try to keep my homebrew "catgirl-safe."

    I guess I should stake out a claim here, even though I haven't done very much homebrew worth speaking of as yet.

    The Scrapper - Alternate Warrior / monster class, intended to eventually replace Racial Hit Dice as representing a "feral survivor" type with no formal training.

    The Exemplar - meant to be a Soulborn fix, but I got carried away with a custom weapon system and created something absurd. Between that and there already being a class by this name, I don't consider it "valid", but am including it for reference and to annoy myself into making a better version.

    Threefold Mask of the Chimera - a slightly more interesting take on an already perfectly good soulmeld.

    The Celebrant - a variant cleric class, less bookish and skillful than the Cloistered but almost as noncombatant, designed mostly for Diplomacy-focused clerics of deities devoted to peace, love, or just plain sex.

    Languages Expanded - little freebie abilities based on your choices of languages known.

    Why Dragonwrought Kobolds are not True Dragons

    Dragonwrought kobolds look exactly like regular kobolds, with slightly color-tinted scales. They look completely humanoid and gain no true dragon traits naturally, such as a good sense of smell, wings, or a breath weapon. They can get some of these things with feats, as anyone with dragon heritage can, but it's not a part of them as a race. This point should be enough for anyone who is looking at it from a flavor point of view. Compare a dragonwrought kobold to the ten iconic true dragons, and tell me the kobold belongs with them.

    Dragonwrought kobolds don't gain any abilities or power from aging at all, other than the standard mental score increases that all humanoid races get. To a non-rules lawyer, this should prove it to you. The SRD states, "All true dragons gain more abilities and greater power as they age. (Other creatures that have the dragon type do not.)". This could only be twisted by saying "as they age" is different than "from aging", which is true, but the intended meaning is obvious. The rest of the SRD definition says, "They range in length from several feet upon hatching to more than 100 feet after attaining the status of great wyrm", which some have claimed makes the whole thing irrelevant because that doesn't apply to every true dragon. However, the next line reads, "The size of a particular dragon varies according to age and variety", which puts it back as a solid definition. Now onto some reasons even a rules lawyer could appreciate.

    • Even regular kobolds have age categories, and they are humanoids, so that obviously has nothing to do with being a true dragon. It's just a description of a life cycle.
    • They aren't listed on the list of true dragons in Races of the Dragon (the same book in which they were printed).
    • They don't gain spellcasting as they age, which is listed on page 111 of RotD as something all true dragons get, which is just about the best and most recent source of a true dragon quality I can find, and possibly a description of what the SRD phrase could refer to (though personally I believe the SRD refers to the standardized age advancement table with numerous special qualities true dragons get through aging, not just spellcasting). The exception to this rule that I've found, planar dragons, tell you that they're an exception to the rule.
    • They aren't specifically listed as true dragons.

    There is, in the end, no full and laid out description of what makes a true dragon, no matter how many pieces you try to pull together. My favorite ones were in the previous comments, but even those might be contradicted somewhere. The only way the 3.5 writers have consistently told us what is and what is not a true dragon is by saying it is one in the creature's description. From all flavor descriptions and from a strictly mechanical point of view, dragonwrought kobolds are not true dragons. I personally don't believe the writers of Races of the Dragon even considered they could be, which is why they didn't state it one way or another. If they went through all of that work to deliberately make them qualify as true dragons, they would have stated so.

    *If you don't want to go the custom item route, optimize your touch AC. Deflective Armor (RoS) and Parrying Shield (LoM) will get it pretty high with minimal investment, but other guides would be better for optimizing this further. Also see the note about moment of prescience and how you can arguably avoid your enemy getting a +25 to his attack roll.
    **This is not commonly accepted (yet) as kosher, but my justification follows. Note that this ruling also makes invisible creatures with mind blank undetectable by divination magic, so get some blindsight if you expect to be facing them.
    - Spymaster 7 gives you a fake persona which is detected when any Divination spell is used on you.
    - Mind blank protects against all information-gathering divination spells and effects, and goes on to say that scrying targeted on you simply fails. I believe Vecna-Blooded works in a similar way to mind blank.
    - Moment of prescience is a divination spell with a range of Personal, that grants you "a powerful sixth sense in relation to yourself".
    - I take this to mean that when you attack someone and use moment of prescience, you gain a sixth sense (information-gathering effect) about where I will be in the near future, allowing you to place your blow perfectly.
    - Therefore, as a spymaster, you detect where my persona will be in the near future, which is meaningless with regards to my actual self.
    - With mind blank activated, you are simply unable to discern where I will be.
    - If moment of prescience was not an information-gathering effect and simply enhanced your own ability to attack, it would not be a divination spell, or say that it grants you a sixth sense. You would be sensing nothing, merely having improved in skill.
    - "An insight bonus improves performance of a given activity by granting the character an almost precognitive knowledge of what might occur." The bonus you gain is an insight bonus, and this coincides with my interpretation of what is happening.

    ***If you don't want to "be a wizard to beat a wizard", you can beat shapechange or gate simply by having a mega-optimized melee build. They won't have the same feats and class features as you.

    This list is only for a quick fix to these problems. Optimizing your saving throws can allow you to beat many of the effects on this list, most of the time, without needing to be immune to them.

    A special mention should be given to the warforged juggernaut prestige class, which gives you immunity to nonlethal damage, critical hits, mind-affecting effects, death effects, all necromancy effects, ability damage, and ability drain, after only 5 levels. The base warforged race already has immunity to sleep, fatigue, exhaustion, poison, disease, sickening, nausea, paralysis, and energy drain. Either of these could go under many of the above headings, but it would have caused clutter... which just goes to show how good they are at stopping mages.

    You might have noticed that many of the counterplay options are given by the Eberron campaign setting, while many of the most broken spellcaster options are given by Forgotten Realms, including Initiate of Mystra and Pun-Pun. You can start yourself off on the right foot by simply playing in Eberron instead of Forgotten Realms.

    A warning - this list contains, in no particular order, a mixture of both my very old work and some of my very new work. Not everything is of a quality I am proud of, but I've chosen to include the older material for both completeness' sake and in case I want to revisit it at a later date and improve or revise it. Other than that, have fun - and PM me if you've got any questions!

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    Where did you start yours?

    The PCs were already a special forces type unit in a kingdom's military, so the campaign started in the general's office.
