So I want to make an abomination and dont know how to go about it is there some book or guide to making them? What would I need to make such a creature?
If you mean the epic creatures called abominations, there's not really anything specific beyond the regular information in their entry in the Epic Level Handbook (and the equivalent section in the SRD).

The kraken stirs. And ten billion sushi dinners cry out for vengeance. - Good Omens

Co-Author of the Dreamfane, Euralden Eye, Fulminating Crab, Gajuisan Crawler, Gruesome LurkerIronglass Rose, Sheengrass Swarm, Spryjack, Usunag, and Warp Drifter, and author of the Magmal Horror from Force of Nature.

My most popular campaign item; for all your adventuring convenience.
Zauber's Mutable Rod: This rod has a number of useful functions that make it easier to live in the wilderness. It is made of polished wood, with five studlike buttons on one end. Each button produces a different effect when pressed. Unless otherwise noted, the rod’s functions have no limit on the number of times they can be employed. When button 1 is pressed, one end of the rod produces a small flame, equivalent to a candle. When button 2 is pressed, the rod unfolds into a two-person tent, complete with bedrolls and warm blankets. When button 3 is pressed, the rod becomes a one-handed hammer, suitable for pounding pitons into a wall. When button 4 is pressed, the rod becomes a sturdy iron spade. When button 5 is pressed, the rod becomes a wooden bucket able to hold 2 gallons of liquid. Once per day, it can be commanded to fill with fresh water. If the rod is seriously damaged or broken in any of its alternate forms (button 2, 3, 4, or 5), it reverts to its basic rod form and cannot be activated for 24 hours. Moderate conjuration; CL 9th; Craft Rod, minor creation; Price 375 gp; Weight 2 lb.

Wait a moment, am I to understand that your DM is letting you play as an abomination? If that's the case I don't think it would be possable to not make him OP.
Please provide some more context. What you are saying is simply not enough to answer the question.

Your most recent post suggests that you're a player, trying to find a way for your character to create an Abomination (the Outsider subtype) in-game. Is this correct? If so, we need to know your circumstances (level, reason for doing this, etc).

Most (in fact, all, short of using specific epic spells) monsters of that type are not designed for player use. They are all intended as challenges. In fact, the book Elder Evils uses creatures very much like them as entire campaign motivations.

Seishi: I think it might be fun to have a one-off [game] tuned fairly, but with the intention of wiping the party. 

DisposableHero_: if [my campaign] has taught me nothing else, it is that with this group, nothing tuned fairly will ever wipe the party

RadicalTaoist: I've been throwing **** at this group that's 5 levels over CRed in DFN, and have yet to wipe the party.

Ok so the mean reason for this is to make a new body for my Player he's a Necromancer and I want to Improve my self with a better body. with adding more feature's and maybe more resistance for my Player. So I guess you can say not really a "abomination" but is just a creature. I want to make the new body so I can transfer my Player into the new one some what like a lich. Is that more better? I should have just change the Question.

You're still omitting much-needed context. What books are allowed and what are your character's stats (level, feats, etc)? We can't help you unless you tell us the whole story. You gain nothing from withholding information or being vague here.

There are quite a few soul-transfer techniques out there, such as something akin to Mr Roboto (which anyone can pull off so long as they have Craft Construct and are capable of casting the prerequisite spells - so basically any wizard who hasn't banned Conjuration or Necromancy). If you don't have the feat handy, and your DM isn't using retraining rules, you can still grab it temporarily through Psychic Reformation (hire an NPC if you don't have an allied psion or UMD character) or the Dark Chaos Shuffle (requires the ability to cast 8th-level transmutation spells (with the [Chaos] descriptor if that matters) and 500xp (or a way to bypass this); this basically lets you switch any feat you have (including "hidden" feats like how elves or most classes treat proficiency feats) for any feat you currently qualify for, as opposed to one you could have qualified for (which is how retraining and reformation work)).

Ok we haven't started the campaign this is before anything has happened. I asked the DM and he said later on I can do this he's really layback back on the rules. Level One but Im sure I would need to do this when I get higher level. Feats none. I think that's that wall you wanted to know. Reason I want this is so I have a higher defense from paladins and cleric more arms 3 pairs to be exact and permanent spider climb.

You're really putting the cart before the horse if you're starting at level 1 but a central part of your plan involves a high level trick.

Also, you've left out a lot of information here - class levels, for one, and there are no playable creatures in the game that have no feats.
Reason I want this is so I have a higher defense from paladins and cleric more arms 3 pairs to be exact and permanent spider climb.


Wizards already have better defenses than clerics (most of the time) and paladins (pretty much all of the time) - assuming you're playing a wizard Necromancer. (Wizard necromancy largely focuses on souls, negative energy, and cold effects instead of the creation of undead, though.)
Your specific motivations - extra arms and spider climb - can be accomplished far earlier than body switching with equipment. Don't neglect item creation.
Also, why would you want extra arms? Wizards generally only need one free hand; having extra arms won't let you cast extra spells and wizards don't need to hold weapons or similar. I suppose an unusual staff/wand build could require them, but that's kind of niche. If all you want is to look like a spider, things get easier.

LOL thanks man and it's just for look's really haha but would I be able to make a body and use it as my own if I chose not to use items?

The earliest way to make yourself into something unnatural is the necropolitan template (Libris Mortis, p114). That turns you into an undead and gives you dry, withered skin and white lifeless eyes. You'd need to be at least 3rd level to survive, and you'll lose a level and some xp, but the template is +0 LA, so you'll eventually catch back up to everyone else in level.

You didn't follow my links above, did you?

The Mr Roboto link shows how you'd do this in a straightforward but obscene way (take Craft Construct, apply an amazing number of templates onto whatever creature you'd like (including the multiarmed template), build an Effigy of that creature, then use Magic Jar to possess it). This can be done permanently as well with True Mind Switch if you apply the right polymorph effects (Polymorph Any Object into a creature that has a mind, True Mind Switch with it, then dismiss the polymorph - originally this was used as a joke to play a sandwich, but the same idea can be used to move your mind anywhere). You can probably do something similar with grafts, symbiotes, or Savage Species rituals, but I'm less familiar with these aspects.


This sets aside why you'd ever "choose not to use items". Equipment is a large part of D&D as your levels go up.

You can call on rudimentary or instinctive knowledge of the subject creature, but not upon its acquired or learned knowledge (such as skills and feats it possesses). The same is true for the subject in your body. The mind switch brings about the following changes.



  • You gain the type of your assumed body.

  • You gain the Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution scores of your assumed body.

  • You gain the natural armor, natural attacks, movement, and other simple physical characteristics of your assumed body.

  • You gain the extraordinary special attacks and qualities of your assumed body, but you do not gain supernatural or spell-like abilities.

  • You gain the possessions and equipment of your assumed body.

  • You retain your own hit points, saving throws (possibly modified by new ability scores), class abilities, supernatural and spell-like abilities, spells and powers, and skills and feats (although skill checks use your new ability scores, and you may be temporarily unable to use feats whose requirements you do not meet in your new body).


Supernatural abilities that require a certain body part may be unavailable in your new form.



As you were.

Seishi: I think it might be fun to have a one-off [game] tuned fairly, but with the intention of wiping the party. 

DisposableHero_: if [my campaign] has taught me nothing else, it is that with this group, nothing tuned fairly will ever wipe the party

RadicalTaoist: I've been throwing **** at this group that's 5 levels over CRed in DFN, and have yet to wipe the party.

Perhaps become a vampire for the Spiderclimb? Hire some one to graft extra limbs on?

I will immediately report any Phishers or Lonely Hearts Scam Artists.
