I like it![edit]

This class is seriously gnarly. Excellent job writing it! I suggest to rate this a 10! --Sir Milo Teabag 12:26, 21 November 2007 (MST)

The only problem is that it looks like you need the warlock invocations list to make it work! --Sam Kay 13:24, 21 November 2007 (MST)
The images need to be smaller though... --Sam Kay 13:28, 21 November 2007 (MST)
The images are from—to make them smaller they would have to be uploaded to the media repository. Also, Sir Milo Teabag, would you like to rate this a 10 (WAY above SRD standards) or would you prefer someone else to rate it? --Green Dragon 20:20, 27 November 2007 (MST)

Rating - 10/10[edit]

I thought i might do this considering I'm currently playing one and it rocks!! They have many special abilities that help them (e.g. the invocations) and many ways that they can make them mortal (not that they were immortal to start of with). It its well written and well describe making it easy to play and understand. --Ktonos 11:17am, 27 December 2007 (MST)

A rating of 8 is on par with most SRD publications... Are you sure this is really a 10 and not an 8? --Green Dragon 20:46, 27 December 2007 (MST)
No a 10 cause it is a well balanced class. I'm playing one at the moment in my friends campaign and she (yes I'm playing a female character) is going well. She's not getting thrashed but then again she's not nearly dead. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ktonos (talkcontribs) 22:36, 27 December 2007 (MST). Please sign your posts!
Okay. --Green Dragon 23:06, 27 December 2007 (MST)
The rating on this class needs to be updated to the new rating system. --Daniel Draco 15:14, 12 July 2008 (MDT)


Power - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because it is too overpowered. He fights like a warrior, casts spells almost like a warlock. I strongly suggest you to balance his fighting skills and casting abilities. The overlord can cast dark invocations - their spell level equivalent is among 7 and 9. That's too high for a fighting class - have you ever seen a class that can cast 9th level spells and fight like a warrior?. Because I haven't. I also suggest you to limit the hightest level of spells and the amount of invocations that the overlord knows. I recommend you to give him only the least and the lesser invocations (and their maximum amount should be 4; eg. 2 least and 2 lesser). Remember that the overlord is rather a warrior than a mage. Also his saving throws are too high - his will should be low (+6 at 20th level), because the overlord is mostly a fighting class. About his signets - I think that he could only inscribe a one signet to an item - making two signets at a one item could make it too powerfull. This class needs to be rebalanced.

Wording - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5. The description of the abilities are good. But I think that you could pay your attention to some invocations that you described (for example look at the "Wall of Gloom"). You havent't mentioned if the overlord can cast his invocations only on the items he wears or the items and hereself.

Formatting - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because the page is not linked. You should make links to the warlock page.

Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5. The idea of this class is great! I should congratulate you. It should fit to most settings. But as I mentioned in the power rate it needs to be rebalanced.


Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it is what every king and lordly Duke should be like. Its so much like the Emperor from 40k!

Power - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because it is a little over powered, doesn't need quite so much damage reduction --Klas 19:12, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Wording - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because of some minor spelling and grammatical errors -- Klas 19:12, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Formatting - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because it is well formatted but the epic feats are not linked -- Klas 19:12, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it is very well developed with multiple backgrounds and a clear role in combat --Klas 19:12, 29 June 2010 (UTC)


Since no one else wants to step up to make this usable I guess I will go ahead and start working on this in the near future. Tivanir (talk) 08:36, 26 March 2013 (MDT)


Even if this is old, I feel this should be said, I recommend a Name Change for the "Megalomaniac" character theme, because it is less like an actual Megalomaniac (Look it up, it's someone who wants as much power as they can possibly get/ is obsessed with their own power) and more like a Mad Scientist, or something of the like.

Alignment Problems[edit]

I think for such a "leader of armies", Lawful Evil should be an available alignment. Personally, for things of demonic nature that don't warp the subject's mind, I allow Any Evil or Any Chaotic, so that good or neutral characters who are willing to utilize the dark arts are still thusly allowed, but I see that particular vein was explored. But still, at least let the Conqueror be Lawful. -14:16, 27 November 2017
