can you explain that? i think it does. he did charge, after all.
If your mount charges, you also take the AC penalty associated with a charge. If you make an attack at the end of the charge, you receive the bonus gained from the charge.
A combo I just thought of... really basic.
Chupoclops + Malphus: Basically, you activate invisibility, then scout around. One round before invisibility becomes deactivated, you activate Ethereal Watcher and do nothing. After 5 rounds, you go invisible again (and return to the Material). Voila, you are invisible as long as you want!
I guess it depends upon whether your mount charging triggers your pounce ability. I would personally say 'no' as a DM, but I can't find rules for or against it specifically. Lances and charging mounts are mentioned specifically. You get the same bonuses / penalties that your mount does when it charges, but I don't know if you are actually considered charging.
The wording would seem to imply you aren't charging (by the definition of what charge is) because it says this:
By definition a charge is a full-round action that allows you to move double and take an attack. The above quote seems to indicate you aren't the one charging, your mount is.
By personal fav. is a vestige that grants the ability to cast Blasphemy. I believe that CL = Binder Level for this particular ability.
I didn't see anything I disliked... Nice formatting on the lists by ability (you did that, I think)!
very nice vestige here:http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/frcc/20070718
lots of flavor, and looks like lots of fun! as if binders weren't weird enough as is...
so now, i can have the pseudonatural template, be made of adamantine, and have huge claws and sabertooth tiger teeth (chupoclops, ipos, halphax, Zceryll)? Freakin' weird... I'll update the 1st post momentarily.
Wait, isn't Astaroth already a vestige found in the Cityscape web enhancement?
Anyway, an untyped bonus to bluff = binder level!? Absolutely insane when combined with Naberius and the other Astaroth form the web enhancement.
Astaroth is already a vestige, lol.
...I remember that you need to draw his symbol at the bottom of a Well of Darkness. A little difficult.
Hmmm. Summon Alien doesn't have a duration. Anyone want to spend the rest of their character's lives summoning an army of aliens that obey their every command once every five rounds? What do people think is approriate: duration 1 round, 5 rounds, or 1 round/binder level?
Bolts of Madness does not have an activation time, but standard action seems reasonable to target a ray.
Summon Alien: You can summon any creature from the summon monster list that a sorcerer of your level could summon. Any creature you summon with this ability gains the pseudonatural template. Thus, at 10th level you could summon any creature from the summon monster I-V list. When you reach 14th level, you can summon any creature from the summon monster I-VII list. You can only summon creatures that can be affected by the pseudonatural template. Once you have used this ability, you cannot do so again for 5 rounds.

the new wizards article on binders in the realms. Emphasis mine...
Is this vestige really good for multiclass binders? Your level, not your effective Binder level. ie Anima mages love this thing. Also, does it stack with things like Augment summoning and assorted other feats that augment summon monster spells...Finally, with regards to the duration question again, A) your level vs. your binder level, and B) As a DM I would treat it like a summon Monster spell. Also, could you potentially summon clusters of lower level monsters, like the summon monster spells (eg. 1d4+1 creatures from a list 2 below your max).
Hm. The Summon Alien ability says they get the Pseudonatural template... but not that they lose any other template they already had. So you get a Pseudonatural Celestial Dire Lion?
...Also, its better than the Alienist class ability: you get both the original Fiendish/Celestial template AND the Pseudonatural Template: Truestrike + Smite? Yes, please (notice that Earth Elementals have Power Attack ...
