OK, I am palying a halfing Summoner with a Bipedal Eidolon I gave him reach, bite and improved natural damage. The two spells I took were enlarge and mage armor. My gm is having some problems with him. What are the best arguements that this not unbalanced.

I don't really have an argument to offer you, other than that it's not unbalanced, it's just intelligent. Poo-poo on GMs who like their players stupid.

Of course, you are a fairly one-trick pony, so when your GM gets around to giving you dungeons with close quarters, spider swarms, and other challenges that this combination won't work for, you might be wishing for a bit more versatility.

I would add that the low X save, and the fact that you as the summoner are made out of little white porcelain mice is a pretty big drawback in and of itself. (Then a 1HD 15' reach, one attack eidolon)


Bipedal, so two attacks, slam & bite, one close and one reach. Not bad for 1st level, but it's not going to out-perform the party combatants if they also get the buffs.

Yeah I don't see anything crazy here. Although it's first level so everything dies to a stiff wind.

It can be filled with bandit arrows as easy as the next guy.
