Furio, I suggest the following feat:

Spear Expertise
Benefit: You gain a +1 feat bonus to weapon attack rolls that you make with a spear. When charging, you also gain a +1 bonus to damage rolls of weapon attacks that you make with a spear. Both of these bonuses increase to +2 at 11th level and +3 at 21st level.

The gouge is a spear (as well as an axe) and so, of course, is a javelin, so that's a win-win. You also like charging, so that might come in useful too.

You can also retrain. I suggest you train out your current 1st lvl Daily and replace it with this.

Brute Strike Fighter Daily Lvl 1
You deliver a powerful blow that rends flesh and shatters bone.
Daily, Martial, Reliable, Weapon, Standard Action, Melee weapon
Target: One creature
Attack: Strength vs. AC
Hit: 3[W] + Strength modifier damage.

As well as doing a ruck load more damage, it is also Reliable, which means if you miss you haven't expended it (always a worry when deciding to use a Daily).

Gart, you might consider the following feat:

Inspirational Attacker
Heroic Tier
Prerequisite: Warlord, inspiring word power
Benefit: The target of your inspiring word regains additional hit points equal to your Strength modifier if it is adjacent to an enemy you have hit during this turn.

The alternative might be this, but while it provides a more general, less situational bonus it isn't all that great with your build.

Improved Inspiring Word
Heroic Tier
Prerequisite: Warlord
Benefit: Add your Charisma modifier to the hit points restored by your inspiring word.

yeah, i'll take the first one. my CHA is low so the second one isn't that great

working on level up, so far as best i can tell:

can add +1 to two ability scores (probably STR and INT)

modify things based on 1/2 level (not sure what all of those are)

+5 HP

no class features?

definitely no powers at level 4, i can tell that much.

one new feat

----------------

as far as feats go, i looked through the Dark Sun book and the main Player Handbook, not really seeing good feats. am i missing something?

As I got my initial character sheet pre-made, which things are calculated off of 1/2 levels?

Since i am level 4, certain things should go up, the book says.

Also, my STR went from 19 to 20. Does that affect my attack and damage like pathfinder/3.5?

Your defences (all of them, including AC), your attack bonuses, skill bonuses and initiative all go up as they get a bonus of 1/2 level (rounded down). Also, 4e works exactly the same way as 3e in respect of bonuses from stats, so if your STR goes up to 20 those bonuses based off STR will also go up.


MAP 42/42 hp

Ok, i was wondering, since many of my attacks were dice+5, and 19 would normally be a +4. so i guess they go up to +6.

EDIT: Gart should be leveled up. I think i did everything correctly and learned a bit along the way.

Qadira

You also have "inherent" bonuses which compensate for having fewer magic items in the DS universe. Hence the extra +1, but only if you don't have a magic item affecting that bonus (i.e. inherent bonuses don't stack with bonuses from magic items generally).

In fact, I forgot to mention it. Your defences all get an extra +1 inherent bonus at 4th level.

Safier's level up.

Stat increases will go into Dex and Cha

Feat will be White Lotus Enervation

Th'Kal is *mostly* leveled. I'm still looking at feats (if anyone has suggestions I'd take 'em... I'm having trouble with running the character builder online right now). I can get by without one for now and will plug it in once character builder is working.

PS. I'm leveling STR and DEX

I'll prolly do what Aub suggested; once I have the time to sit down and look at it.

Did we actually find out who was responsible for the sky rock. I have the feeling we did, but I don't have time right now to dig back and see.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Well, you were there, so you tell me. Or her.

Still digging through and posting as I find stuff that looks helpful. I now officially have a PGCE (Post Grad Cert in Education) and am allowed to do what I've been doing for the last two months :)

Cheliax

Wintergreen's CE PA IT Geek 10/Daddy 6/Physicist 3/Cartographer 1/Runner 1

Whoo! Well done. Nice to know there's another sensible person out there teaching.....

Thanks! At the moment I have a mixture of young offenders and end of sentence long-time inmates working towards resettlement. Very, very varied.

I might be a bit quiet this weekend. My RL 4e campaign is coming to a close and I need to prepare the final encounters (some demigods, epic dragons, an actual god) so I probably will be doing this as a priority until Sunday afternoon.

I'm certain it's been noticed that my posting's been sparse as of late. I'm afraid that if I continue this will keep happening, and probably just get worse. I've tried a few things to keep up (drop games, schedule posting time, etc), but it hasn't helped enough. At this point I'm just dragging things out. So rather than continue on this course I think the most prudent thing for me to do would be to drop the games I'm in.

I do apologize for taking this course of action. I don't like quitting things, which honestly is just as much part of the problem. I've taken on too much, both professionally and personally, and now I'm at that point where everything I'm doing is suffering from it. It's not just here where I've made mistakes and now I need to get things in order. I hope there are no hard feelings but I do understand if there are. Once again, I'm sorry for this.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Thanks for letting us know. Sorry you can't comtinue, but I understand that life can bear down on leisure time and make posting in games difficult. Best wishes, and I hope things lighten up for you soon.

As it happens, this is probably a good time to drop out for continuity reasons. Safier can say thanks for being rescued, and head into the sunset, maybe on the next caravan.


Human

Sorry to see you go Safier, but maybe we'll get a chance to game together in the future.

Aubs, your 4e games sounds a thing of wonder. We have a home campaign sitting in Paragon stasis until all the group babies grow up enough for the parents to come back and play. We're patient in Yorkshire.

Not around much this weekend.


MAP 42/42 hp

well, i am sure there was some loot, but i don't mark it down unless it is specifically given to my character. i have seen loot that the party picks up, but i dont recall it having been divided and handed to me.


1 person marked this as a favorite.
MAP 42/42 hp

looking back through the last 1600 posts or so for loot.

some inspiring moments, like when we all called Jareen a defiler and a templar, when Gart brought Th'kal back from the bring of death, etc.

still no loot seen though.


MAP 42/42 hp

Since Gart's arrival:

+1 cloth armor - to Jareen
Amulet of Resolution - Furio
300gp worth of stuff (bottom of pg48) - ?
special hardwood pitons - ?
hejkin idol - ?

im up to the start of pg 60


MAP 42/42 hp

shiny rod-key pried from rock pile pg61 - ?
evil orb - turned to loot-dust (2720gp worth)
ivory tube w/1260gp in ceramic - divided, i missed it.
alluring veil - ?
wyrmtooth dagger - good for sorceror
scrolls - Jareen read 'em
belt or feral might - thkal

and that covers it all, unless i have missed something, from the time Gart joined to present.

looks like a few things left unclaimed and unsold.

personal note: 210gp in ceramic to Gart

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

OK - directed at the group. You need to take notes, especially of treaure and xp. A lot of you are assuming someone else is doing it, and they aren't - that includes me. From now on, if you lose it, it's gone - I'll assumed you gambled it away. The game is getting too long to spend time trawling through for treasure someone should have noted at the time.

Cheliax

Wintergreen's CE PA IT Geek 10/Daddy 6/Physicist 3/Cartographer 1/Runner 1

Ok. Let's call that list that Gart's just made correct from here out.

Loot

That should help with the tracking. Can Stick XP in there too, but I *know* I don't have that right....

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Until he/she left, Safier was maintaining a fairly comprehensive xp check, so if you refer to that as a starter.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

Taking the GRE tomorrow (grad school entry exam, for those from not USA who call their tests differently) may not be around much today.


M Human

good luck! what are you going back for?


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

MIS degree.


M Human

ah, i thought you were in the medical field


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

I am. I'm jetting though.


M Human

ah, i see

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Just to give you advance notice, from next Thursday (24th) I shall be on holiday for just over two weeks. It is unlikely I will have access to the internet in this time.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

right on!


Human

Boglins. Connection issues. Thunder does not agree with our internet.

Ouch! The local Scout Troop camped out Friday night.... I'm not sure if they made it 'till morning!


Male Half-Elf Bard/Rogue 4, Athasian Minstrel [AC 18, F 15, R 18, W 17; HP 41/41 0 temps (surges 8/8); Init +5; Spd 6; Passives - I 18, P 17]

This is just a heads up. I will have limited accessibility due to travel from 25 Jul until 9 Aug. I will have my computer, but will only be able to post as the wife and available internet access allow.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

No worries - I'll be on holiday from 24th July to the 10th August and almost certainly will not be posting in that period, for much the same reasons.
