    Yup, that's D&D for ya.* I love how casters become virtually godlike, and I'm only being half sarcastic here. I say definitely go for lichdom, btw. It's the chance of a lifetime, especially with that sweet Cha=+hp!

    *Except for 4e; curb-stomping happens a bit differently in 4e.

    Yeah, I'm going for it. [And that CHA = hp is cray!]

    My disguise will be raised btw, so I'll have close to a +20 (can I hide that I'm not a lich?), and I have a psionic power (aura alteration) and could otherwise get a Ring of Mind Shielding to keep from being viewed as evil.

    Also, the GM mentioned SUmiko's ridiculous ability to escape: Because she's a cryptic (aka psionic rogue) and gets auto-stealth bonuses, because she got blessed by the Goddess of Monsters (getting a +8 on stealth + Hide in Plain Sight), because she has a psionic power to add to her stealth (another +8), and by becoming a lich (another +10?), plus, her normal ranks in Stealth, she will have a ridiculous +42 skill rating in Stealth. IOW, without even rolling a d20 to add, she already won't be seen by almost anyone... and she can hide in plain sight as an action.

    I'm also picking up Fold Space, which gives her a 50' teleport, and she has Escape the Bonds power which allows her to ignore any movement-hindering spell + any grapple condition.

    So yeah, keeping the soulstone inside makes sense for her, she'll just vanish. Poof. She's like a Force ninja at least in terms of slipping away. Aside from being a thrallherd or finding/opening traps or wielding soulstones, it's what she does best.

    Is it possible to learn this power?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    But it's probably duplicated by arcane and divine spells in some way.

    It's never too late to start! There are forums dedicated to D&D and similar games, including sites like Pen and Paper Games which include built-in group-finder functions. There are also sites that host online tabletop (D&D) gaming, like Roll20, which Jennifer uses.

    If D&D has taught me anything, it's that if you wait until you run into a group of people who happens to like a particular hobby, you'll probably be waiting a long looong time. By way of my own anecdote, I knew virtually nobody growing up who was interested in D&D. The friend who taught me the game is one of those people who find a new hobby, get rapidly obsessed with it, and then move on to a new pastime a month later. But after 20 years, I still love table top gaming even though I hardly ever have a group to actually play with. Right now I don't even have time to get involved in a Roll20 group...but I still find time to brainstorm game ideas!

    Oooh... I like the part about removing charm effects. That sounds useful for my campaigns.

    My recommendation if you don't have friends but want to play is that you tap into the gaming networks / local play groups. There are different possibilities for doing this, even if sometimes it can feel hard to find people....

    - Meetup.com

    - Check Wizards.com, Paizo.com, or other game forum websites (minmaxboards.com, giantitp.com)... depending on the game(s) you're interested in, White Wolf is out there too, etc. Maybe there will be regional / local resources you can tap into.

    - Local hobby and game shops. Many stores now will have gaming space for people to run weekly games in, and at the least they might have bulletin boards with lists of GMs and groups looking for additional players.

    Once you find some local people, sometimes there's "word of mouth' games going on and they can put you in contact with those groups.

    Usually you are just invited to attend a session, see if you fit with the group, and if everyone is happy, they'll invite you to join.

    Yeah, it's kind of a cool power that way -- dual use.

    I think a new Psionics Unleashed just came out, Mythic Psionics is supposed to release this month, and isn't there an Ultimate Psionics? (all by Dreamscarred in conjunection with Paizo.) Much of the basic Psionics is free online, d20 system. But I have trouble finding the newest stuff. You can also pick up a data file for free (or at least I could) for Hero Lab.

    This might be worth looking into. I think I figured out what kind of character I would like to play: a cambion. A cambion is the offspring of a human woman and a demon father (this particular group of demons is misunderstood, rather than malevolent). Merlin was a cambion, so he'd be in good company.
