I've got Jester's Jaunt as a hex right now. It's pretty awesome. I can also use arcane wands provided I have a day's notice; I can prepare the lore spirit and slot some arcane spells as needed.
I recommend everyone take a look at Ashan's class/archetype in the event you have suggestions. He can basically switch hit whatever we need with planning. The only spirit I won't bind with is life, for story reasons.
I've not had a chance to play a shaman yet, but of the spirits I think Lore and Heavens are my favorite of the lot. That Heaven's Leap hex you have just seems so stinking fun!
About Jester's Jaunt: it's a Will Save with SR. That' two dice rolls and well, I don't trust dice :/ Also, Confusion would be a go-to, but I think it'd see less time in play because too many of our prospective enemies will be immune (undead and all...)
Essentially I want to focus on making us unstoppable :)
Reviewing the list available in Hero Lab...
Beacon of Luck (Because sometimes failing a save is the beginning of a TPK)
Charm Monster (lot of undead... and generally more useful *before* a combat starts!)
Clairaudience/Clairvoyance (Battlefield Preparation begins with good Intel ;) )
Confusion (lots of undead... :/ )
Daylight ('cause being human sucks...)
Dispel Magic (Always good, if it works :) )
Displacement (you missed. half of your shots. I am sure Kendra will appreciate this one ;) )
Exquisite Accompaniment (Because why use rounds of Performance when you can use a third level spell instead...)
Feather Step, Mass (Difficult ground is for squids.)
Glibness (*This* reflects B'yelka's penchant for manipulation.)
Invisibility Sphere (All of us!)
Jester's Jaunt (Ashan has this... but, Quantity has a Quality all its own)
Mad Monkeys (in Memory of Tibi ;) Plus, stealing a goodie would be funny :p )
Reviving Finale (Well, all songs must end, so why not heal a bit with it. Plus, as a Swift Action, Byelka can Move Action to kick of another Bardsong immediately.)
Slow (Cause we should be better than the bad guys. I like this over J's Jaunt because it affects multiple targets and is not negated by one decent saving throw...)
Terrible Remorse (You *should* feel bad about being a bad guy! + even if/when they save they are Staggered)
Thundering Drums (Some direct damage and a light status (prone))
Wall of Nausea (cover from shooters, and maybe a status (or two) for anyone that wants to close with us.)
With Bards, I tend to avoid spells with a save. Even with your 20 in CHA, you're not pumping the DCs up with feats.
Mass Feather Step
Wall of Nausea
I have to agree that dispel magic is just one of the best spells available to anyone and it would get my vote. It's not the flashiest but when you need it (which is often) it's fantastic

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Eschie! I'll have to pass on the chance though as I'm at my pbp limit. I hope you find a suitable replacement who's a great fit for your group though!
Who wants the ring of feather fall and the potion of heroism? Dantrian already has a potion, one which he intends to reuse perpetually if he can, so a second one will do him little good.
Maybe Anton should have the ring considering how the Promethean so recently tossed him like a rag doll? =P

I just realised Anton is my first character to get over 1,000 posts :D
I had a vivsectionist alchemist that had 1,053 but when he drank his mutagen he underwent a Jekyll and Hyde physical transformation so I set up a different alias for him pre and post hulking out but Anton stands alone in the 1,000 club among my aliases.
Thanks for the longevity and enjoyment of this game guys
To echo Anton's sentiments:
Thank you all for bringing something *good* to the table! :D
This was my first PbP experience and you guys set the bar pretty high. I have had some positive experiences otherwise, but some rather disappointing ones, too.
So, thank you again for being my first, and my best ;)
All it takes is one glance at my profile to see I've had more failures than successes as a PBP GM. I recently got much more busy IRL, and had to cancel all my games except this and one other. Thanks for making this such an enjoyable journey over the last 2.25 years. I could not have done this without you guys, and its as much yours as it is mine. This is definitely the crown jewel on my PBP GM crown.
I gotta add, Jelani, your wife hit the ball out of the park with her first foray into pbp too. She was phenomenal as Tibideau, dude. I'm really glad we had the opportunity to play with her. You guys are both tops in my book.
