    Default Animal, Mineral, or Vegetable

    Hello.

    I wanted to ask people about an idea I had for a character. I want to play an anthropormorphic mineral warrior monkey with monk levels.

    Firstly, is the mineral warrior overpowered? DR 8/adamant is rather good, but a loss to all three casting scores could balance it maybe. Either way I have the go ahead to play it.

    Secondly, the burrow speed is said to be 1/2 the creatures land speed, and the monk grants fast movement, so does my burrow speed increase as well?

    Thanks in advance.

    And no and yes, respectively.

    Yes, Mineral Warrior is widely agreed to be somewhere between overpowered and broken for melee characters. (Incidentally, many of the anthropomorphic animals are too, although I haven't often heard people talk about the monkey in that respect.) The burrow speed should include the monk's bonus, I think, because it refers to land speed and not specifically the base speed.

    First, Mineral Warrior is one of the 2 most OP templates in the game. However, monk levels balance it. Also, the Monk speed boost applies to all of your movement modes, so it gives you a burrow speed of 1/2 your land speed+your monk bonus. (Burrow=[1/2 land]+monk)

    I play primarily 3.5 D&D. Most of my advice will be based off of this. If my advice doesn't apply, specify a version in your post.
