Alright, I saw this was on the to-do list, and had some time to help out... not sure if non-admins are supposed to do this... and I hope I didn't butcher it too badly haha.Furbuggy 16:52, 15 April 2007 (MDT)

Made about 20billion changes to the article, cleaning it up and stuff. Still needs more work. Furbuggy 18:02, 15 April 2007 (MDT)
Better? --Green Dragon 23:07, 16 April 2007 (MDT)

Balance 7/10[edit]

Not sure about balance here or even if I should be the one who puts it in, but it seems to me this is pretty balanced. It is basically the Mystic Theurge- it trades the 1st and 10th level of double classing for a few special abilities. The latter seems to out weigh the first, so I gave it a 7/10, because it seemed reasonable. However... the requirements seem a little low. Maybe make the minimum level be somewhere in the 6-8 range? Please someone check this- I am not sure about this. Furbuggy 17:38, 15 April 2007 (MDT)

The fastest you can get into this PrC is 8th level due to the spell requirements.

To Do[edit]

A bunch of things need to be cleaned up. For example:

  1. Include the BA, saves, etc. in the class table.
  2. The abilities need to be formatted (individually).
  3. The overall structure of the article needs to be organized. For an example, see the Courier (DnD Prestige Class).

Should now be better... --Green Dragon 23:10, 16 April 2007 (MDT)
I cleaned up a lot of the spelling and grammatical errors, mostly involving capitalization and what-not. I replaced many of the unimportant "lord of the dead"s with just "Lord". Personally, I believe that the whole prestige class should be renamed to something less tedious, such as "Death Lord," or something. I also changed all the "his/her"s to just "his". The opening flavor text desperately needs to be cleaned up, as it is redundant and repetitive (it says "believes/knows that true power comes from" three times), and is just really over-complicated. I'm not sure what the author was going for, so I'll leave it alone for now. DancingZombies 10:43, 18 April 2007 (MDT)
Hm... Are you sure you would not like to give the flavor text a stab at? I think it needs to be made better as well... --Green Dragon 17:04, 19 April 2007 (MDT)
I worked on it a bit. Furbuggy 04:49, 20 April 2007 (MDT)
It is looking better, now a part about Lord of the Dead's as NPCs and what classes are the most common choices is needed to finish the desciption area. --Green Dragon 09:44, 20 April 2007 (MDT)

the class[edit]

this is a great class idea the problem is that to attain the "lich" template you have to be lvl 20 where it only requires lvl 11 and you have to have 5 levels of cleric and wizard to even take it another way to do basicly the same thing is to take 3 wizard and 3 cleric and go mystic thurge and gain the template in 4 class levels when broke down so that you are a lich at lvl 15 so maybe to make this worth taking lower the requirements to the same as a mystic thurge but that is just an idea

I agree, I never intended this class to make the the player undead when I created it. I have made some changes as the class has evolved some over the years. I will admit it is very cool to see this still around.
