The door whips open, and a black haired gnome of average height, wearing simple clothes and a leather apron from which jangling tools dangle, darts into the room and slams the door as quietly as possible behind him. He leans against the door as the sound of running feet becomes louder and then softe...

I moved some skill points from knowledge skills and spellcraft to put me in a better position for a racially aligned prestige class I want to take. This shouldn't have any major effect, since i only removed 2 points each from 4 skills (so they will not change synergies) and i'll still be able to mak...

well, it's not so much nedderpik i'm worried aobut as the smaller mechs... like the kabuto mechs of the iron tooth clans, for isntance, who have both less damage reduction and less of a budget

Your Craft (mech) is base 8 ranks, +5 for machine empathy, +4 for intelligence, +2 synergy for Knowledge (steam engines) for a total of 19. Is there a synergy or bonus I am not seeing that increases it to +21? dwarves can drop their bonuses to stonework in exchange for a +2 bonus to craft: mecha' a...

i think that you would need to lower that bonus to a +2 at most; as it is, it's hidiously over-powered for a single use of a steam power when you consider that a magic item that boosts strength by +2 costs 2000g and a boiler costs 50g, it's seriously unbalancing to allow someone to us a single boile...

At 5th level, if you've got skill check bonuses in the +20 range, an armor class over 30, ability scores above 22, saves above +8 and so forth - I'll have to indicate there is a problem.

And, speaking of format... What rolling method(s) would you prefer we use? My normal rolling method that i use for the campaign i am in IRL is a bit over-powered, so i don't think i should use it here. On the other hand, i don't think it would do me any good to bring 3d6 6 times place as rolled to a...

In that case, are there any particular suplements that are/aren't allowed for character creation? I'll completely understand if you're not allowing anything beyond the core D&D books and the dragonmech books released to date, of course.

mechs that use hooked hammers, barbed blades, and lobsterclaws are considered grappled when they hit thier opponent and thier opponent fails a reflex save

that's the closest mechs come to grappling (actually, i wouldn't put it past a mech devil to figure out how to grapple effectively in a mech)
