Illithids and Gelatinous Cube Delicacy 
15th-Dec-2004 12:16 pm
Two questions.

One: What 3rd edition book can I find the illithid in (which Monster Manual, or is it in the Expanded Psion Handbook), and if there are multiple entries, where are they all located that you know of? Is there any expanded references or other publications that further go into the illithid for 3rd edition? How about the githyanki? Have they released adventures that I don't know about that detail information for these guys that I could use as an extra reference?

Two: Slightly more cooking related, but since the original idea came up and only a gamer would understand what I meant--does anyone have an idea of how I can best make dice float in jello to create a gelantious cube? I have a pound of dice and four boxes of instant jello and a sinking feeling that...well, the dice are going to sink to the bottom. :p

Mind Flayers are in 3e MMI.

I can't tell you EXACTLY when to add the dice, but you don't want to add them in right away or they will sink. Best advice is to look up a cookbook on how people do the fruit in the jell-o and do it that way.

you could always get that dental floss that's fully edible and create a harness for the dice, then cut the dental floss at the edge of the cube. wait. What if you made half the cube, then put the dice in after it hardened and then made the other half right on top? maybe?

Mind Flayers are in the 3.5 MM and the XPH.

As for the jello. Wait untill the jello is slightly mushy, and not all liquid then very slowly insert the dice. Not too many.

To get them to stay in the Jello, you have to wait until it's partially set. To see if it's the right consistancy, stand up a plastic knife in the jello. It should stay upright, but when you take it out, the hole it made should close up again immediately.

Also chill the dice before adding them

Two: Make half the jello, let it set. Then set the dice on top, pour the rest of the (still liquid) jello in on top, and then let *that* set? Just a guess....

I'd make a few layers. Remember the Jello Eggs? same idea.

But waiting until it's halfset would be good too. You'd definately want to chill the dice, though.

oo. I have the Githyanki in 3ed form. Player Race, or for people to beat on?

sorry for double post, yo.
15th-Dec-2004 09:30 pm (UTC)
Actually, both would be useful. ^_^

I only have the PC race stats. Here:

· +2 Dexterity, +2 Constitution, -2 Wisdom. Generations of combat training have made the githyanki agile and sturdy. However, the single-minded devotion to the lich-queen for ages has stolen much of their intuition and judgment.
· Medium-size humanoid.
· Githyanki base speed is 30 feet.
· Darkvision up to 60 feet.
· Psionics (Sp): Githyanki can use clairaudience/clairvoyance three times per day. In addition, githyanki of 6th level or higher can use dimension slide three times per day, and githyanki of 9th level or higher can use telekinesis three times per day and plane shift once per day. These are manifested as a psion of the githyanki’s character level.
· Attack/Defense Modes (Sp): 3/day - mind thrust/empty mind.
· Power Resistance (Ex): A githyanki has power resistance equal to 5 + 1 per character level.
· Red Dragon Pact: Githyanki receive a +4 racial bonus to Diplomacy checks with red dragons.
· Automatic Languages: Githyanki, Planar Trade, home region. Bonus Languages: Celestial, Draconic, Githzerai, Undercommon.
· Plane of Origin: Usually the Astral Plane.
· Favored Class: Either psychic warrior or fighter. Whichever class taken first by a githyanki character becomes that character’s favored class. Once chosen, it cannot be changed.
· Level Adjustment +2: Githyanki are slightly more powerful and gain levels more slowly than most other races.

For the Non-Psionic version, chop out the Psionics above and stick these in:

· Psionics (Sp): Githyanki can use daze and mage hand three times per day. In addition, githyanki of 3rd level or higher can user blur three times per day, githyanki of 6th level or higher can use dimension door three times per day, and githyanki of 9th level or higher can use telekinesis three times per day and plane shift once per day. These are cast as a sorcerer of the githyanki’s character level.
· Spell Resistance (Ex): A githyanki has spell resistance equal to 5 + 1 per character level.

Can you email them? That would be very useful to me with my planar campaign.

Thank you kindly!

Githyanki are in 3.5 MM, as well as XPH. I don't know of any more in-depth sources of info on Illithids though until the Aberration book comes out next year. Half-illithid template is in Fiend Folio.
15th-Dec-2004 09:50 pm (UTC)
Half-illithid template? Now I have to run out and get Fiend Folio...

Thank you!

It comes right after the half-fey tmeplate
16th-Dec-2004 12:37 am (UTC)
Agreed on the two-part jello-making. Also, add extra gelatin (1 pack unflavored to flavored should work)

Githyanki get great treatment in Dungeon 100 and Dragon 309 from July 2003.

What I wouldn't do for those issues. I'm going to have to lok for them.

mm. Githyanki.

Some places you can get the dungeon magazine:
Noble Knight Games, purveyors of fine out of print games has a copy of Dungeon issue 100 in stock for $6.49

And of course Paizo Publishing the gang who bring us Dungeon and Dragon magazine have it listed in their back issue catalog but they want $10 for it...

Searching those sites will probably turn up the Dragon magazine as well. :)

So, know you don't have to do much but send some money... :)

too lazy to correct that typo, given I'd have to recreate the stupid html tags for the links. Now. Not know. Oy. I wish comments were editable...
