3.5 Sorcerer Monarch Stats Using Redking's Rules

Hello, fellow Dark Sun enthusiasts. Recently @redking has posted highly developed epic dark sun rules, originally based on the rules from Legends of Athas, here: Epic Athas 3.5 by redking (WIP), and further developed them with revised dragon transformation spells, here: Defiler Metamorphosis I and II. I have been using the rues that redking made to start developing the stats for several advanced beings following his guidelines, the first being a fully transformed dragon based on a character I Gm’d for in a plane-hopping dark sun 2e game, and the second being an attempt at stating one of the sorcerer monarchs.

I will be posting more advanced beings here as I develop them, and invite you all to comment on, or create some of your own. I have not seen a lot of comments about the incredible work redking has done, and I hope that I can spark conversation by showcasing how it works in practice.

Breath Weapon (Su) As a standard action, Amouranyx can breathe a 70 foot cone of searing sand. Each creature in the cone must make a Reflex save (DC 53) or take 25d12 points of damage (half fire, half piercing). A successful save reduces the damage by half. Once she has used her breath weapon, she cannot use it again for 1d4 rounds.

Metamorphoses Dragon 1-X. In addition, modifications to the metamorphosis process made with the aid of Kaishgara in Yaramuke, the Crown of Unspun Dreams, and Rajaat’s research at Troll Grave Chasm, have given her the following additional abilities from her metamorphosis: cerebral expansion 1-V, telepathic awareness (Called Telepathy and Blindsight under revised seed) .

Amouranyx’s Psionic Awakening

Transmutation (psionic enchantment)

Spellcraft DC: 28

Components: V, S

Casting Time: 1 standard action

Target: Creature touched

Duration: Instantaneous

Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless)

Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

To Develop: Psi-Spell Artisan Rank 3 costing: 140,000 Gp, 3 days, 5,600 XP. Seed: metamorphosis (DC 28). Factors: Ageless (+10 DC). Self-sustaining (+10 DC). Grant limited telepathy (ad-hoc +28 DC). Apply Phrenic template to non-psionic being (+110 DC). 1-action casting time (+20 DC). Mitigating factors: Lifebender 3 (-60 DC). Psionic enchantment via expenditure of epic power slot (-19 DC). 100d6 backlash damage (-100 DC).

This spell can only be cast on creatures without the psionic subtype. Once cast, the target experiences a physical and mental change, awakening potent psionic powers. The target gains the benefits of the Phrenic template (Expanded Psionics Handbook).

Additionally, once this spell is cast, the target becomes ageless and has no need to eat, drink, breathe, or sleep. They no longer takes penalties to ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that the creature has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue, though they no longer die of old age.

Finally, the target also gains telepathy out to 120 feet. When communicating with the caster of the spell or other creatures awakened through it, the telepathy range is extended to 1 mile due to the shared psionic resonance.

The casting of this spell deals the caster 100d6 points of damage which can be healed normally. Like other metamorphosis spells, once it is cast, it is wiped from the casters mind and must be rebuilt from scratch. Provided the caster still has the notes, equipment, and assistants used to create the spell the first time, this process only takes half the time and cost (both gold and XP) of the initial spell creation (though never less than half, regardless of how many times a spell has been developed).
