I dont know about epic, but I had a character die one his first session.
He was a Wild Rager Barbarian 2/Druid 4, and we had just gone to investigate a cave, only to find a crazed old man(a wizard) and his fast zombie troll, which popped out of vegetation to catch me flat-footed.
after two rounds of taking on the troll alone, and going to 16 Hp while raging, I took it down(4 hits with a greataxe while raging and using Power Attack will do that. 88 damage!) I stepped up to the mage during a full-attack and tried to get him with my gore(Lesser Fiend Totem), missing.
On the Wizard's next turn, he took one look at me, all bloody and torn up from beating his troll, that he risked everything and started casting a spell. Cast defensively? Check. Missed my AoO because it was a ranged attack? Check.
Enervation struck me square in the chest, and I took the full 4 levels the spell could deal, making me lose 20 HP, fall unconscious, lose my 12 HP from raging, and go to -18 of 16.
Somewhere in the Mwangi Expanse, an ankylosaurus roams around wearing +1 Chain Barding. :)
You know how some people can hear things others can't? Well, have a room full of wind chimes. Eerily quiet.
Encountering a similar trap really made a fellow player in a play-by-post get riled up because it went against the normal "find the trap, avoid it's effects" thing.

Untyped bonuses always stack.
My aunt has a nickname for me that includes 'monkey' in it, while my dad has one for me that has 'turkey' as part of it. Most of my family calls me by my middle name(because I'm a 3rd, named after my dad who was named after his dad).
I'm Dragonborn3 because when I set up my first email address(that I didn't forget the password two, anyway >.< ), I'd fallen in love with the dragonborn from Races of Dragon, and I was a 3rd.
Tonight in a home game, the boss for the session, a corrupt noble, surrendered after he tried to attack my character, fumbled(two natural 1s in a row) and ended up critting himself for 20 points of damage. We're level 2.
My character is now boasting he can make people stab themselves instead of hurting him. XD
And here I thought you liked getting boned! :P

Bones Oracle looks like a pretty solid choice. As early as level one, you can have a skeleton cohort for 3+Cha rounds per day, then you can get Animate Dead as a bonus spell and Command Undead as a bonus feat. You also get a revelation that lets you inflict negative levels as a ranged touch attack. And that's before you even pick and feats, spells known, or even your starting race.
That's it. Everyone, and I mean everyone, back away from the game until Lyn has time to get a new fuse and gives us the okay. I don't care about your reasons or arguments or all the other crap you might want to post about that'll cause conflict, l don't want you guys making Lyn leave the game.
Dragon Disciple wrote:
If the dragon disciple does not have levels of sorcerer, he instead gains bloodline powers of the draconic bloodline, using his dragon disciple level as his sorcerer level to determine the bonuses gained.
If you weren't a sorcerer, then your DD level becomes your Sorcerer levels.
What was so wrong about mixing magic anyway? It was a fun thing that helped add more stuff and alleviated cookie-cutter casters.
Oracle: "Hey, guys, I've worked really hard at it, and I've learned Magic Missile!"
Party: "Cast Magic Missle to stop the ghost!"
That doesn't make sense.
So, since Improved Eldritch Heritage(Arcane) doesn't add the spells to your class list, it's absolutely useless for anyone not already using the Sorcerer/Wizard list now?
Ths also sounds like another "FAQ" nerf to Paragon Surge...
This is a sad day for oracles but it was needed. I wonder if this suggests the wandering lore spirit ability for the shamans is being redone. Removing free access to the wizard list for one class one month and then giving it to another the next would send rather mixed messages.
Funny you mention the shaman. There's been theories that certain FAQs are being made so the new classes "look better". Not sure I believe that, but some people do.
Finally, a bard to play Thunderstruck by AC/DC on the bagpipes, cello, or whatever. Skald, the Metal Bard!! Only class I want to play more at the moment is the Warpriest.
