Azlain was rather shocked at the praise Wil was heaping on him, but beneath his polished helm his expression was unreadable.
He set the head next to the mine entrance and looked down at himself. He had felt the pain of his wounds, but he'd become so used to dealing with constant pain during the time before his resurrection that he always felt a little odd when he wasn't bleeding. Now, with his gleaming armor completely spattered with gore, it was clear that he was still the same person he'd always been.
Some things never change. he thought with bitter amusement.
Just realized I've been short changing myself on CMD. I never realized you could add most bonuses.
"A creature can also add any circumstance, deflection, dodge, insight, morale, profane, and sacred bonuses to AC to its CMD."
Azlain's current CMD is around 30. pretty cool.
Azlain saw Wil go down and a cold fury rose inside him. Though the blow he took for his moment of distraction was heavy and terrible, he hardly seemed to notice.
"Get him out of there!" the normally silent warrior barked, moving to draw the creature's attention so that the others could save his friend.
He angrily swung again.

I'm moving to deliberately provoke an AoO. I'm gambling that this thing doesn't have combat reflexes. That should mean that someone else can delay to my turn, then move in, grab Wil and drag him back.
Mobility makes my AC vs. AoO 30
Multiclassing with a caster is rough normally. With core book only, it's a really big hindrance and can be very frusterating.
A dedicated archer could be a good choice, but crossbowers have to dump two extra feats into being able to take more than one shot a round with a heavy crossbow. A longbow is just better, which is why it's Martial.
Have you considered a barbarian? They have great low-mid level survivability and great damage porential. We could also really use a Cleric, which are also hard to kill because of heavy armor and lots of healing options. With buffing spells and a polearm you could piggyback one of the frontliners and contribute a lot to our average damage when you weren't buffing or healing.

Azlain steps to the side again to flank with Wil, not letting up with his heavy blows.

Sorry about the extra posts. Posting from phone. The site was giving me hell and not letting me edit.
Sorry about my absence. For some reason I stopped receiving notifications when this game updated.
Azlain was caught by surprise. He hated that.
He charged in behind Wil, drawing his blade as he ran and bringing it down onto the massive creature.

Sword is a +1 weapon. Not sure what I need to roll. Feel free to roll for me GM. Current AC 24.
"It may be that we can take what they offer and refine it to a more manageable scale. It also may be that the enemies we face will require that degree of force to defeat. In either case, the alchemsts will make necessary allies." Azlain says from beneath his polished faceplate.
Azlain hops down off the mast as they come ashore, drifting down to land lightly next to Wil as the group makes its way down the gang plank.
The enthusiasm of the rest was infectious and in spite of himself, Azlain found himself smiling behind his faceplate.
Not that he would admit that.
<--- worst diplomat ever
Azlain stood in his usual place atop the mast, now glinting in his majestic armor. It fit him like a second skin. He felt strange wearing it. Nothing this beautiful was meant to be worn by someone as hideous as he.
Still, it made him proud to wear it and he wasn't about to insult the Queen by refusing her gift.
Azlain seems surprised when Seltyn mentions him, then slowly nods.
"I... thank you. And thank you, your majesty."
It'll slow me down a little, but in 2 more levels I'll get Armor Training 2 and be able to move normally in it. Mithril Full Plate is pretty amazing. I'd be a fool to pass it up.
Not being able to do much was mostly my own fault. I decided to stay on the outside as Wil's second during the duel while the rest of you went looking around.
Azlain's habit of being quiet means I get in the habit of posting less often. It's bit me in the ass twice now. I need to not do that.
I did get to take down the two soldiers one after another though. That was fun.
Fort: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (16) + 6 = 22 Azlain barely notices the pain. It pales in comparison to what he lived with every day until just recently.
He sticks close to Wil, unsure of what to do regarding the cauldrons and rituals, but he takes the robes as ordered.
Flaming blade damn well should shed light.
In the section on magic weapons it says all of them have a chance of glowing when they are found. Seems like it's one of those GM calls. Does this fire behave like normal fire, or is the blade just really hot without flames?
In the Overrun rules, it states that an Overrun can be done as a Standard action, or as part of a Charge.
Do you interpret that as "You may make an Overrun attempt against a target instead of an Attack while Charging" or as "You may attempt to Overrun a creature who is between you and the target of your Charge."
I ask because I have a Charge line to the Mastiff next to Eirel, but he is in the way. I'd like to be able to Overrun her and have him simply choose to get out of the way so I can end my movement where he's standing.
Since he hasn't moved this round, it might also be possible for Azlain just to yell "gang way" and have Eirel 5' adjust out of the way or something, but I figured the Overrun question was worth asking anyway. :)
