    Okay, I've began a new game with my friend set in Planescape Torment or...whatever the multiverse is called nowadays. However I should tell you that our game isn't about powerplay or saving (or conquering) the world. The premise of our game is that we're all normal human(oid*) who's just been to the wrong place at thr wrong time. In fact all of us were in a spring celebration festival in the prime material, and suddenly PPoooofff a strange vortex takes us in a strange new world.

    So the fun of it is that we're stranded in a unknown place with no idea whatsoever what's going on. And it's quite fun too.

    I've always like playing a healer character, don't know why, I just do. So my char is a Bard / Cleric (3/3). I'm looking for a multiverse-related prestige class that could enhance my understanding of this universe. I mean giving me abilities to travel, understand or... anything related to this. The logic behind this is that with a more profound knowledge of the planes we could possibly travel back home. The DM's effort seem to always, prevent us from doing this :p, bastard.

    Currently our "quest" is to help a Water elemental Lord's plan to "save" a large lake from extinction. It seems we're somehow became the multiverse's greenpeace :lol:. Thing is about everybody seem to abuse us, since we're quite naive of the way of this world, meh :d.

    I know it seems strange to have a Bard multiclassed to a Cleric, but it's actually tons of fun. With my Cleric's levels I'm the party's healer and with my Bard's level I'm also the main negotiator / con artist / whatever. We (the party) aren't exactly a beacon of good in an evil place as I've said we were at the wrong place at the wrong time, we're trying the make the best of what's came to us.

    So? Any thought please?

    *No need to discriminate none-human races eh? :grin:

    Planeswalking, caster, a bit of bard-ing... This reminds me of the Sensate-oriented PrC from Manual of the Planes... The Ardent Dilletante, iirc. Still, It might not be the best of ideas powerwise - but then again, neither is bard/cleric. I'm sure you'll do well as long as your campaign is not an optimization-fest.

    Let me start by this, though: what books are available, and do you have any other preferences? So far I'm thinking nothing exalted or vile, decent skil points, and not too many lost caster levels.

    Well we've access to PHB, DMG, MM I and II, Deities and Demigod, Fear√Ľn manual, Book of vile Darkness, The Draconomicon, and Tome of Magic. All a mix of 3.0/3.5 my friends and I gathered over the year.

    You wouldn't have any weblink to these Classes eh?

    I can give the weblink to the list that has links to the classes put on the WotC site... Most non-psionic prestige classes officially presented on the boards are at http://forums.gleemax.com/wotc_archive/index.php/t-767811 . Check http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=482636 and search "web previews". If you're interested in psionics, search "mind's eye" - they have some very good PrCs if you want to give the PP magic system a try. Please be careful with using the latter list, as it is the general thread of the Optimization boards and thus very result-oriented. Still, if you want to squeeze every bit of juice out of your character, there's no better place to go.

    You might also be interested in the Web Enhancement list here contains a lot of material that wasn't included in the WotC books as they were published. Hence, it has a lot of info you may use - from classes to spells to sample adventures. BTW, the Complete Divine enhancement contains the updated versions of a few Faiths and Pantheons PrCs, so you may want to give it a try if you are a cleric of, say, Shar.

    For more information on classes of all kinds, feats and all other titbts, you can also check the lists at http://www.crystalkeep.com/d20 . Their compendia have information from nearly everywhere, including Dragon Magazines, and they usually give as much info as WotC would allow.

    If you're okay to buy books, Complete Adventurer, Complete Divine, or Complete Scoundrel might be of use to you.
