In our game Ravenloft is the prison for the god EO, basically the anti AO. It has been a part of our game for quite a while but it was supposed to have originated in a dragon or dungeon magazine. Has anyone else heard of this. 
I've never read of an "Eo" before - cloest thing to that would be "Io", but he's something completely different (the overgod who made the dragon dieties, made for Council of Wyrms).  A quick google search yielded the Eternal Order, which is a small pantheon of death gods worshiped in Darkon (not an overpower); and the only reason it popped up was because a web article writer had abbreviated the Eternal Order as "EO".  Given the reluctance of TSR to officially define the Dark Powers or fully explain why Ravenloft exists, I'm suspecting this was something your DM came up with vice part of a printed source.  (There may be an obscure issue of Dragon/Dungeon which mentions an EO, but, if so, I've never seen it before, nor was I able to find it.)
EO was a character played by Michael Jackson in a Disney short that was turned into an "interactive experience".

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?
