[reposted from another part of the boards because I fumbled it the first time]
I need to build a pegasus-riding 8th level NPC with some Mythic Ranks (like 1 or 2). He will be a major antagonist in an homebrewed Midgard (from Kobold Press) campaign.
He's a nobleman intending to seize power through military might and renown (and some nasty intrigues on the side).
Should I build him as a Fighter, a Cavalier or a Ranger with animal companion ?
He will need to be tough enough for the inevitable showdown between him (plus some minions) and the player characters ; the showdown should happen when they (the PCs) are 10th level.
Some ideas ? Ho, and the villain shall have a lance with lightning powers.
Come to think of it, the pegasus should probably be wicked - martially speaking - too.
