Finishing Touches[edit]

I'll try to put more personality into this race soon. You really think I made the Level Adjustment too high? Splendid! I expected everyone would be telling me I had made these chaps too powerful. I am open to suggestions. What do you think the Level Adjustment should be, Marasmusine? --Sir Dinadan (talk) 08:29, 14 September 2013 (MDT)

I'm wondering if they should have 2 Outsider HD or 4 Humanoid HD (whichever is most appropriate for your theme), which would nudge up the stats I mention in the stub template, and leave the LA as it is. Marasmusine (talk) 10:13, 14 September 2013 (MDT)
Interesting idea. What if we decided to bring the LA down instead?--Sir Dinadan (talk) 10:23, 14 September 2013 (MDT)
I would say the lower bound is LA +4, since Godly Will is quite similar to Suggestion which enters play at level 5 (although I'm not sure how opposed Charisma checks compare with Will Saves). Divine Wrath can be rolled into that LA. Is it wise to have them both at-will? It seems quite easy to frightened every enemy within 1 to 3 turns. The ability score adjustments I reckon are worth +2 LA. So total LA +6 as a minimum. Marasmusine (talk) 13:32, 14 September 2013 (MDT)
Okay. That sounds good to me. Should I make the LA of +6 official?--Sir Dinadan (talk) 13:46, 14 September 2013 (MDT)
I don't mind but you might want to solicit a second opinion as I might be being an idiot. Marasmusine (talk) 14:53, 14 September 2013 (MDT)
You don't strike me as being an idiot. :) Who else should I consult? Green Dragon?--Sir Dinadan (talk) 10:08, 15 September 2013 (MDT)

If this takes a base race and adds more traits, then this isn't a race, it's a template. Marasmusine (talk) 08:07, 5 September 2014 (MDT)

That sounds logical. Is there a category for racial templates? If so, I missed it. How would you advise I proceed?--Sir Dinadan (talk) 13:44, 6 September 2014 (MDT)
Templates are at 3.5e Creature Templates. I advise familiarizing yourself with the SRD templates. Marasmusine (talk) 01:51, 7 September 2014 (MDT)

True. It does make alot more sense for it to be a template. I'm the one who edited it so that any race could be a demigod because as far as I know, gods can mate whith whomever they choose. Dragrn (talk) 20:03, 12 September 2014 (MDT) Sir Dinadin, as you are the original creator of this template I really hope you don't mind if I take it up and make some adjustments. I've been using this tempate in my campaign for a while and I've found that although the LA used to be higher and right now it seems to be perfectly balenced, it doesn't seem to be quite on par with other LA+3 templates. So I was thinking of adding a little something here and there to make taking this template more worth while.Dragrn (talk) 4:33, 27 June 2015 (MDT)

Level adjustment of +1? That seems just a little bit absurd, especially considering how much this template has been expanded.--Sir Dinadan (talk) 16:23, 27 September 2015 (MDT)

To be honest I don't remember the reason I lowered the level adjustment to +1 if It was even myself that made this change. The level adjustment is supposed to be +2 as it is on par with other LA +2 templates yet still a better, more preferable template for any kind of character as opposed to the other options that focus on particular builds.Dragrn (talk) 2:25, 29 September 2015 (MDT)
My estimate for LA is +1.2 (physical ability scores) +0.3 (mental ability scores) +1 (DR) +0.5 (energy resistance) +0.5 (bountiful divine favor) = 3.5 (round down to LA 3) Marasmusine (talk) 13:17, 29 September 2015 (MDT)
I think Maramusine's estimate is really good. I would lean more for a LA/CR +4 and a small buff to the Bountiful Divine Favor, maybe also capping the DR at level 18. --Luantha (talk) 13:07, 24 November 2015 (MST)
Honestly, this template has evolved a great deal since I first created it. I think I'll give it the LA Marasmusine suggests and rewrite the old one later on.--Sir Dinadan (talk) 17:20, 2 February 2016 (MST)


Given that this template had been modified almost beyond recognition, I have reverted it back to its original design with minor expansion. I remind anyone who has at some point modified this template, you are encouraged to write your own template that more closely captures your own envisioning of what a demigod should be like. Happy D&Ding! --Sir Dinadan (talk) 13:15, 4 August 2016 (MDT)
