Be aware, as I have told the others, that after a long spell of unemployment I shall be starting work next Wednesday. I may be erratic for a bit until I get settled into a new rhythm... but I shall not be abandoning you.

As a suggestion Aerith... looking over your character..

You could take Weapon Focus Longbow at 9th and I think Qualify for Arcane archer easily!

Also you have proficiency with light armor and arcane armor training.. you Could remove arcane armor training {and take that Longbow Weapon focus 'hint-hint'} and wear a Silken Ceremonial as armor. It is light armor with no arcane check at all - same as a Harimaki! If made masterwork you could EVEN enchant it to to provide a significant armor bonus... and then only have to cast shield... or wear a ring of Force shielding! It would Really help your AC! :)

Coupled with a Amulet of Natural Armor +1 or +2 and a Ring of Protection +1 or +2 and perhaps a Dusty Rose Ioun Stone ... your AC could soar! :)

Hmmm, the big problem with AA is that there is a BAB+6 requirement which either means waiting until like level 12 as a Wizard, or doing a lot of dipping.

I actually love the AA and have never been able to get a character to a point where it would be feasible.

Here is a thought, if people do not mind a moderate change. Since we have Edmund as a full caster/sorcerer. Rather than having a pile of Wizard levels, Aerieth could take 6 levels of Slayer, and then 1 level of Wizard and 1 level of AA. One Sniper Talent could be used to get the Trapfinding Rogue ability so that I would have that covered. Two of the Slayer talents would be Ranger Combat Style feats (Precise Shot and Point Blank Master).

Doing this would free up 1 feat, Weapon Finesse, and allow her to take Weapon Focus. The end result would be a mostly roguish character with some spell casting ability. Going forward, she could take more buffing spells to free up Edmund for battlefield control and offense. Also, it would get rid of the Arcane Armor Training, at least for now, since she would not qualify. Probably take Focused Shot for this one with her high Int. Also, would likely swap Int and Dex for the level 4 and level 8 increases.

Well that could work.. I just don't see the need for you to gut your casting ability. Remember.. build what makes sense for the character to be the self-sufficient independent elven woman her backstory says she is, not just what the party needs.

But its up to you. Honestly I personally think Arcane armor training is a waste if you don't intent to wear heavier armor than light.

Silken Ceremonial +5, +Shield Spell {+4AC}, + Ring, + Amulet of natural Armor, + Ioun Stone, + Belt of dexterity, ...maybe dodge feat would make your AC something viable in ranged battle and not have Any arcane failure check even worry about.

There is also the school of though that the Harimaki can be combined with the Silken Ceremonial.. some interpret it that way. Not sure about Megan. If so... you could also enchant your Harimaki to +5 it also is no arcane failure chance armor!

Just options.. of course the decision is yours.

One problem that I have with the silken armor is that to me it feels like cheating. Also, I have never been into eastern themed gaming. Let me think about this. There has to be a way to play her as she is designed. Really, I need to at least change the backstory a little since I forgot it was written for Council of Thieves, not CotCT. Although, she could have easily fled Westcrown when things went south.

I have a lot of work today, but will try to think about this some.

The Silken Ceremonial is not per se' only Eastern themed - Taldor also has them. Effectively all the pictures of Seoni.. she is wearing a silken ceremonial. One could also make the connection that Senoi's large wide belt is a Harimaki as well... they have the exact same description.


Female Elf Rogue 2/Wizard(Air Elementalist) 3 (HP 33/33; AC 14(18 w/Mage Armor), FF 14, T 18)

Ok, another thought. Aerieth is essentially self taught magic. Sure, she grew up in an elvish community and saw a lot of magic, but never was truly taught - mostly because she was in trouble too much of the time. After being thrown out of her village, she travelled and eventually ended up in Westcrown. There she got involved in some happenings that the local government (Cheliax) did not appreciate (Council of Thieves book 2). Thus, she fled ending up mostly unwanted in Korvosa where she has sort of struggled and fought from the shadows to survive.

The build would be Level 1-2 Ranger(urban), Level 3 - Wizard, Level 4-7 Ranger, Level 8 - Arcane Archer. She could either stay as an Air Elementalist, or switch to Universalist(Arcane Builder). This would fit with her intelligence, but lack of true training. Really, she started with Rogue levels, so Ranger(urban) is not that much of a change, and she could grab a sleight of hand trait to fit in with that part of her background.

I will have to think about the armor. I want her to be able to use armor, but really there are only a few that do not have dexterity restrictions since she is likely to have high dex. Probably Bracers of Armor to start and then go from there. Catskin leather is also interesting. It has no armor check or dex restrictions. Thus, a super high dex would not be limited. With no Dex restriction, the +2 from leather would offset the +1 + Dodge from the Silken Ceremonial + Dodge Feat.

{Shrugs} If that works for you. Sounds neat... I'm making a similar Ranger/Wizard/Arcane Archer build in another game.

Yeh, it is sort of how do I fit this into the character mold I already have. I know that you were looking for a skill monkey, thus I am limited to pretty much playing with Rogue/Ranger/Slayer/Bard. Obviously with her complete lack of charisma, Bard is out. I love the Slayer, but think that it is not really her motto. She is not a killer by nature, although she will probably have Humanoid(human) and Oursider(Evil) as her favored enemies. Human because in Cheliax there are a lot of bad people. Outsider(evil) because, well, she is not a big fan of devils and other things from the lower planes. (Plus, it is just a good FE to have). Favored Community (from the Urban Ranger archetype) will probably be Korvosa. Not sure if that is too large a place, but it is either that or Westcrown which would be completely useless for this campaign as far as I know.

I like Rogue, but the 3/4 BAB makes it tough to qualify for Arcane Archer until really high levels.

In the end, I think it is better to have a little differentiation and with Edmund being a full caster, it makes really jacking up on wizard levels less important.

The interview indeed went well - I got the job :)

I start next Wednesday (1 October - also offspring's 18th birthday). Hopefully it will not impinge too much on role-playing, but it may take a few days to get into the new rhythm, please bear with me.

Congratulations, Megan. Best wishes in the new role.
