I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've bee branching out more in the past few years.

comment What CR adjustment should I make for Divine Rank 0
The reason that I haven't made an answer of my own is that there are other answers that say everything that I would want to say anyway.

I don't disagree with the CR mechanic altogether. I think CR is just fine as a guideline for how difficult a fight will be. My -1 is because the way that you're applying the rules you quote is adding way too much CR to a creature. Those rules are terrible at computing a reasonable CR. Like many of the things in Savage Species, you need to apply the rules carefully, and make sure that they make sense and play well before you actually run with them. Not only that, but those rules were designed for advancing monsters by hit dice, not applying templates.

-1: Like what Starwed said, this is adding way too much CR. As an example: Take a regular Magmin, CR 3. Which is a tougher fight: A Magmin with SR 32 and immunity to Mind Effecting, or two regular Magmins? Both have the same ECL, based on your numbers, but two Magmins are going to be a much harder fight than one with a couple immunities.

I'm not convinced that that was what he was implying. If he comes back and clarifies, then I'd reverse my -1, but I don't want to do that if I don't know what his intention was.

comment Mithril Breastplate + Armor Expert seems ridiculous
I don't understand what you're saying here. How is he supposed to rule that the player needs armour proficiency? The point of the question is that the normal nonproficiency penalties for armour don't apply to armour with an ACP of 0. If you are suggesting a rule that changes that, could you explain what the rule change you're suggesting is?
