Inspire Greatness and Psychic Reformation
« on: May 28, 2010, 09:31:07 PM »
Let's assume I'm a Psion with a Bard cohort.  The Bard uses Inspire Greatness on me so I gain 2 hit dice and maintains this while I manifest psychic reformation on myself.  What happens?
Hood - My first answer to all your build questions; past, present, and future.

Speaking of which:
Don't even need TO for this.  Any decent Hood build, especially one with Celerity, one-rounds [Azathoth, the most powerful greater deity from d20 Cthulu].
Does it bug anyone else that we've reached the point where characters who can obliterate a greater deity in one round are considered "decent?"

Presumably you manifest at 2 ML higher than normal.

Hmm, am I missing something?

You're forced to spend 100xp more than normal to change anything.  You effectively have 2 levels with absolutely no choices made that you can change.
I am constantly amazed by how many DM's ban Tomb of Battle.  The book doesn't even exist!

Why would you even do this? It hurts my eyes and looks like you ate your keyboard before suffering an attack of explosive diarrhea.

If using Genesis to hide your phylactry, set it at -300 degrees farenheit.  See how do-gooders fare with a liquid atmosphere.

You know, we have a simple questions thread you can ask this sort of thing in. You don't need to start a new thread for every single question you have.

I'll admit you start some good discussions, but a lot of these are much simpler than, say, kevin_video's questions.

Could you be 1 xp short of leveling, have him inspire, smash a bug and then level?

OR

Lose a level some how, have him inspire, gain level back?

Often, my questions lack simple answers.  I asked about summoning evil elementals in simple Q&A, but that got no replies.

Because of the extra HD from Inspire Greatness, I may be able to get an extra feat (+2 HD) and use Martial Study or Martial Stance somehow.  How would this work?

I don't think your supposed gain feats from your bonus HD.  As a temporary buff it looks like its just duplicating the effects of two levels in a Fort heavy full BAB melee class, but not giving you actual saves or actual BAB, and specifically calling out that level-dependant effects are increased, not that you gain new effects, more that your current ones are improved.

I think I've seen this suggested as a possible way to gain early entry into PrCs that require skill ranks. 

Say at level 5 you have 8 ranks in two skills.  While IG is going you PR and move two ranks from one skill to the other.  So now you have one skill at 10 ranks and the other at 6.

Let's assume you get your skill ranks beyond your normal max.  What happens after Inspire Courage ends and your temporary HD fade?
