I think the "what were they smoking" part comes from the fact that it can be thrown as a wtfFREE action.

I need to point that item out to one of my players, who made himself a Captain America in one of our games  :plotting

Make an attack with each of them as a free action(going with the reasonable yet permissive DM's choice of max one attack each round) with all of them animated...yeah.

Some odd stuff in the 3rd party feats, including some which are quite powerful (use one save for all types of saves, gain an extra standard action per round) but have limited uses and can only be taken if you lack the ability to cast spells. Also, amusing names like Throat Threat Giant and Extremely Thick Skull.

Quote
Trans-dimensional Tentacles (Su)

A Mother of Oblivion's tentacles allow her to see into and infiltrate multiple planes at once. At all times, a Mother of Oblivion is cognizant of the plane she inhabits bodily and all coterminous planes-such as the Ethereal Plane and Plane of Shadow from the Material Plane. Not only is she aware of these planes and the creatures there, she can reach her tentacles through to attack. By worming her tentacles through the dimensions, a Mother of Oblivion can effectively reach through solid barriers into any area not protected by a dimensional lock or similar effect.

While a Mother of Oblivion can attack and even grapple creatures on other planes, she cannot move creatures from one plane to another.

Well, first, there's one problem with dipping synthesist: You only ever have a +1 BAB, since you use the eidolon's BAB.  So a magic idol singer isn't good.

However, what you can do is have your caster dip into synthesist and take the Head evolution, for a second head.  This qualifies you to take Multivoice, from Savage Species, thus giving you the ability to cast two spells a round as a full-round action.  Now that's worth a dip.

Nah, it was clarified in the Flurry of Blows FAQ that when they say something replaces your BAB, they mean it replaces your BAB for that class.

The Master Spy does seem to be great NPC stock. Harder to use on a PC though, unless the whole party is intrigue focused.
The pirate guy can combine with his ship.

Another item for the "what were they smoking" list: Throwing Shield.

All you need is 4 levels of Bloodstorm Blade and to be dealing atleast 1 damage with your throwing shield to get infinite damage with only free actions...

That certainly beats the d2 crusader.

Certainly interesting.


Also, Eternal Glacier?

Eternal Glacier is pretty awesome. Swarm Skin is interesting, but I don't understand swarm sizes. How is a swarm comprised of over a thousand of its constituents the same size as one of its constituents?

Also: That wind spell seems to forget that you're surrounded by Tornado force winds. Although... it seems that Pathfinder's weather effects are incredibly poorly defined... the strength check to avoid being checked or blown away by the winds is trivially easy. On the other hand there's no way to tell how difficult the Fortitude save is to simply be sucked into the Tornado and dealt 6d6 damage per round. Disappointing.

Also, where are you getting those numbers for the Time Thief? It gets 4 extra swift actions per day as a 1 level dip, and as far as I can tell taking the class to five levels doesn't grant you any extra features that deal with swift actions, but it would give you 4 more swift actions per day because of how Mote of Time works.

Which is why you have your warforged cohort stop them from moving first.

Also: a wind spell.
Clashing rocks seems kind of meh.

EDIT: 3rd-party class which grants 3 free swift actions per day as a 1-level dip, 5 levels increases that to 5+1d4+Cha mod.


Okay, cursed earth is pretty epic.
A spell that turns people into paladins?
An excommunication spell
It's dangerous to go alone, take this.

Interesting how it makes no note whatsoever of actions practiced under the effect of charm person and similar oddities. Which means the corrupt church member scenario is still a go.

Bestow Grace of the Champion just makes me facepalm. Nice going, Paizo.
