Yeah... I like that evening Glory ain't EEEEvill, just... goal oriented. If I hadn't thrown in with her, I'd be seriously considering those troll-blooded Bone Knights  (Damage immunity to all but fire and acid, mooks avoid fatigue with either Tireless (if Aasimar are considered human as in Races of Destiny) or an item of No Light (0-lvl, normal light sources don't illuminate the area), with Paladin or...Warblade on the other. The taint (and it's built-in Flaws), with the inability of anything except wish or miracle to get rid of it, makes EG's 'Undead of Love' the 'best' IMO. We're not team evil; we're trying to show the world that Undead are/were People too!

If'n I did go with the troll-blooded, Cha would get hurt, but Str and Con would bump (Lolth-touched >> Evolved, but no Cha bump)

I'm kinda goin' off the deep end on items: can we use the Item Creation Cost Estimation Rules as written?
Semi Extreme examples:

Continuous Shirt of the Shield Spell (1st level, CL 1, lasts minutes per level; Cost 1x1x2000x2=4000, then modified by crafting costs)
Item of Extended Mordenkainen's Capable Caravel (Stormwrack) (8th=>9th level, CL 17, Lasts 1day/level, usable 1/17 days: Cost 9*17*1800/(5*17)=3240, for a 'permanent' ship w/ extradimensional space (More likely to use Extended Ice Castle (Frostburn) 1/2days at 21000, unless there's always a river/ocean)
Cloak of Continuous Knight Unburdened (Forge of War) (1st level, CL 1, lasts hours/level: Cost 1x1x2000=2000)

That last is priced almost exactly as the Tooth of Savnok, but ain't slotless, and doesn't affect carry-weight, but also isn't unique.

Yeah, go ahead and use those rules. If anything stands out or doesn't feel right, I'll bring it up. :)

Sources Allowed: ... some Pathfinder (ask).
An army of Russians armed with machine guns, flamethrowers, and rifles. Yea or nay?

Umm...are we using Fractional BAB and Saves, or Whole Numbers? (With the Fractional, it's harder to get +22/12 (Good/Poor) to saves in 20 levels in Gestalt, and 2 half BAB classes 1 level apart don't get to BAB 19)

He probably only wanted the increase in BAB anyway, players trend towards asking for bonuses not nerfs :p

Perhaps, but I can't get better than Full BAB, and So far my build has been Pal only on one side. I wanted the fractional saves to make the saves easier to calculate (for me) as I've been using a spreadsheet to set-up the PC, cohorts, Mounts, followers and equipment.

I can imagine the mess of paperwork, it's the main reason I didn't sign up as a primary player :p
