Squids in 2.0

Postby The_Axxsinlazzam » Mon Nov 20, 2006 10:38 pm

Hello to the Gods on Toril.
I have a few questions to ask.
They all are about illithids and psionics for 2.0

#1 will there be squids in Toril 2.0?
#2 will there be feats and speciality classes for squids?
#3 umm... thats all thanxs!

Move along, theres nothing here to see....

I may not be a god, but my ego tells me different, so...

Chances are that they won't take squids out of the game, though they may not take the same form that they do now. There is a chance that they, like any other race, will be allowed the choice of any class, and would simply have a few psionic innate abilities. If this is the case, then psions will quite likely become a class available for other races as well as illithids.

The_Axxsinlazzam wrote:#2 will there be feats and speciality classes for squids?


While there do exist a few monstrous feats that are fairly useful to illithids, I suspect you meant psionicists. If psions remain a class, then there will certainly be specific feats for them (or, alternatively, metamagic, item creation, and other spell casting feats will apply to their powers in similar ways).

Or, at least, that is my best guess.

If you want to spend that many points on intelligence then you are a braver man than I.

Illithids will remain in the game, as will Psionicists. There will be more details in the future.

I don't have any official bearing on the matter, but I wouldn't hold my breath for the Illithid Savant if I were you :P It probably wouldn't survive the balancing.

I can't think of any other iconic Illithid PrCs. Thrallherd, perhaps?

I wasn't thinking of prestige classes. However, mind flayers are well suited to the mage classes, and acceptable for bard and priest classes. Of course, an illithid fighter would be a challenge, to say the least.

Squishiness is mostly based on class, not race. Not to mention that illithids have natural damage reduction. I was thinking more of their strength adjustment.
