In the min/max boards I've seen alot of crazy awesome builds. Some of them I could see playing but others had no flavor at all. However everyone has a build they want to try. Maybe you want a arcane/divine gish, a crazy awesome bloodline or a uber stacked template build.

for me it has to be: Shecarn Deathvine (because I like that name) karisite(TOM/LA bought off)/ silver dragon major bloodline binder(10)/KotSS(5)/scion of D(5) with spellfire feats and possibly a homebrew feat which allowed me to absorb any spell caught of my spell resistance.

discuss.......
The god of thunder....... yeah I'm the hammer

Just ask yourself..... W.W.T.D  what would Thor do
mthor, look what you did. You made people on the internet argue. We all hate you with a fiery passion, now. :P

I always thought it would be fun to play some sort of gestalt Paladin of Tyranny 3/Hexblade 4/Crusader X/Something Else X//Sorcerer/Incantrix mix.  Maybe throw in Dread Witch on one side and the dead caster level on the non-caster side for shiggles.

It wouldn't be the strongest thing I've seen, but I think it'd be a lot of fun.

Totally true.  Historians believe that most past civilizations would have endured for centuries longer if they had successfully determined Batman's alignment.

Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"

I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.

Binder 15/KotSS 5//Rogue 3/Fighter 2/Cloistered Cleric 1/Chameleon 10/Warblade 2/Swordsage 2.

Maybe swap a level from the Fighter or the Warblade for something else, not 100% sure yet.
Anyway, Binder gestalt.

Lot of Binder love so far in this thread. :D

Some DMs frown on the binding class and its fluff... :(

Mine was more a power issue though.  :rollseyes

Oh, if we're talking about a character I wanted to play but my DM disallowed then this would be the one:

Rogue/Swashbuckler/Fighter/Invisible Blade/Master Thrower.

I could only have 4 classes in total, including PrC's.

that would have to be an E6 gestalt character....   three major bloodlines (depends on what "before" means) on one side (wouldn't have to take the last three levles b/c you don't reach level 12 ha ha)

The Ghost with the Most...
Ouija, the Psychotic

Kalashtar(cheese entry into Thrallherd)
side one: all bloodlines// Titan1, Fey1, Djinni1(using the typo "Djinni affinity +21"), Titan2, Fey2, Djinni2
side two: // Dread Necromancer1, Ghost1, Binder1, Cloistered Cleric1, Ardent1, Thrallherd1

12th level rebuking(stacking w/bloodlines but not breaking the "best progression" rule)
6th(8th with feat) EBL
three domain powers(and/or devotion feats)
ML6 and level appropriate Power Points(can get more powers/PP from thralls and/or future feats)
+ you're a freaking GHOST! with thralls that bring you a fresh WBL every day! only to be REBUKED!  :evillaugh

If you're using typos, why not go vigilante to get 30 third level slots/day.  Obviously make swordsage your first class.

The almighty psionic sandwitch. I got inspired when I just read that character idea. One day someone will allow me to play it. And I fully intend to do it.
[spoiler]
I hate mouth breathing fuckwits who go around spouting lies, even after being corrected on those lies, and that bait mods into helping to defend their wrongness and fail. I also hate the MBFs that don't understand the meaning of words, and that can't get a fucking clue.
Hey! I like spouting lies. It's very entertaining to observe how people on the internet are buffing their small egos by declaring victories over some stupid MBFs. :smirk
Also - I hate people who use too smart words that I don't understand. :mad

Hi Welcome

Go fuck yourself, because others won't do it for you.

Stop flirting you two.  :p

perhaps a gestalt druid/something fitting the profession of assassin. Does not have to be the most horrible thing ever but I guess it does have druid.........

For whatever idea I just like the idea of evil druids enjoying the brutal aspects of nature.
