At first i was not a fan of missing power attack, but it is a nice build.
really stands out against spell casters and creatures with DR. ray shield and missle shield are very neat defensive feats I had not concidered.
I will play aroudn with this and see what i come up with
Looking into some ideas for a fighter build for ROTRL.
SO far we have a bard (mainly focused on buffs, minor arcane and ranged support) The other players havent chosen yet. Most likely we will have a cleric and a mage.
I havent decided weather I want to maximize damage, defense or find a good mix. Open to any race, thoug I love dwarfs) and perhaps some multiclassing into rogue, barbarian, ranger?.
Should I go with a reach weapon? if so, combat reflexes for crazy AoO
soo many options and I'm a bit overwhealmed with them all.
Working on a devil app.
Raistlin Majere: Dragonlance. for his quest for power and the shift of alignment as his quest for pwoer pulls him down a dark path.
Cardinal Richelieu: Three Musketeers. for his schemes and open disregard for the laws of man. A holy man that uses his position to gain power and control.
Kahn: Star Trek: for his vengence. A very intelligent villian whose is blinded by vengence.

As the corpse crumbles, Kaliana spares a glance to the priest. Seeing his nod, she quickly closes on the nearest group of crossbowmen hoping to get to them before they finish reloading. What did father say about charging someone with a crossbow..... oh yeah, duck!
As she draws up next to the first crossbowman she brandishes her exotic curved blade. "Hello gentlemen, would you mind not firing those lovely toys anymore? I'd hate to have to kill more than previously dead corpses today. Though the words are almost friendly, her tone leaves no question as to her intentions.
As much as i Would love to create a profile character, having Issues with the site. So doing this without an avatar yet...
The concept is a Human Rogue who is part burglar, part swashbuckler, and part deadly knife fighter. Straight rogue, focusing on short/light blades that are easy to conceal. He's a theif, braggart, liar, charmer with a mean streak that he keeps hidden. at leats until it's time to put some fear into his mark.
1. Do you have previous pbp experience as player and/or DM? If so, on Paizo's boards, or elsewhere? Yes, here and mythweavers
2. Where do you live (specifically, in what time zone)? EST
3. How often can you expect to post (barring illness, vacation, etc.)?
1. Who are you? Talyon the Talon, human rogue. Burglar and Knifefighter extrordinare!
2. What do you look like? On the taller side, with medium blond hair kept back in a simple knot. Quite handsome, if I do say so myself.
3. How would you describe your personality? Outwardly I'm flashy, showing you spinning knives or a winning smile. On the inside, cold and calculating, loooking for the perfect opening to strike. Laws are nothing more than the game board, the trick is all in how you work the pieces. I don't get caught up in all this Mitra worship, there were other gods once, perhaps they still watch over some of us, though not lately....
4. What crime have you committed to cause your incarceration in Branderscar Prison? Bribery, forgery, and fraud are all crimes Talon ahs committed, the one that landed him in prison was High Theft, caught trying to sneak out through the princesses room! Apparently these 'holier than thou' types don't take too kindly to me helping myself to their excess of jewels and "secret" documents, not to mention choosing the princesses room as a good hiding spot! Is wear she winked at me as I was being dragged out in manacles.
I will submit a witch or sorcerer.
The idea is, she has arcane pwoers from either some unknown paragon or a mized bloodline. Either way it was unnaceptbale to the village she was born in. These powers manifested in the late teens/early twenties and have completely screwed up her plans. So she left home, and traveled alone. Throw in some mentor or a group that helped her out, until she learned they were an evil sort, perhaps theives or something. She left, though she did snag a few supplies. They would be angry and possible prone to hunting her down. Perhaps she used a spell and scarred the mentor or the leader of the group.
I will look throught he 2 classes and see what I come up with. Race has not been decided yet either. I think I would like her to use a Bow, perhaps a bit woodsy. Able to survive somewhat on her own. She can be sent by the swordlords or she can be someone who has taken up temprary residence in the area, or just wandering through. That would depend on your preference as a DM.
I see her as someone who is searching....for who she is, the purpose of her new pwoers, and perhaps searching for a cause and a home. She tries not to advertise her abilities when in villages, afraid of the same reaction.
For the unnamed Magus, I'm looking into Subject of study. Given his personality and the mistrust of locals, I see him as traveling with some gypsy type group for a time. My thought is one night the group is attacked by some undead and he narrowly escapes on horseback, the sole survivor of that terrible night. The attacked was reported to the guards at the nearest town, however they took the blood on his clothes as a sign that he might be the one responsible and lock him in the stocks. The professor proves his innocence while investigating the attack and the two travel together for a time, as he recalls every detail he can about the undead creatures that they encountered.
Brain dead when it comes to his name, will work on a full profile.
I think a black bladebound magus would be fun to play in this AP. WIll work up a sheet.
Initial idea is that he is a troubled soul, possibly half elf. Torn between 2 worlds: elves and magic or humans and swordplay. I'm leanign towards him growing up with the elves, learning magic and their ways. As he amtures quicker than the others his age, he begins to grow apart and chafe under their system. Eventually he leaves, searching for something.....
Will work in trait, not sure which one. I see him meeting the professor, possibly traveling with him for a time. perhaps he's heard of or met one of the other party members before. I think the professor realized how alone and lost he really was and took pitty on him. It was through the professor's guidance that he becoems a magus, bringing a balance to the dueling sides of his soul, for now anyway.
Finally decided. A gnome (pyromaniac) evocation wizard, with a bonded ring. I'll stat him up and add some fluff.
Rough background is, some people think he;s dangerous, untrustworhty, and just plain unlucky to be around. Truth is he's curious, adventurous, and occasionally reckless. I'm thinking chaotic good. He's got his own moral code but rebels against laws he sees as too restricting or boring. He probably has been a short term "guest" of the town guard once or twice.
Im interested, thinking an offensive caster. Either, wizard, sorcerer, oracle, or druid. I'll build somehtign and psot soon.
i'd like to submit a human witch. I will make a full sheet, but ehres the concept. I figure between sleep hex, and an elements patron, Wencis willl be able to offer arcane support in any combat.
Wencis loves magic, but was never very skilled. He learned a few cantrips but anything tougher was beyond his grasp, until he met Blue. Blue is his familiar, a highly intellegent weasel, who teaches wencis a different way to cast spells.
Blue and Wencis first met after a strange dream, in which a being of great Elemental power, spoke to him. This stranger bade him seek out a waterfall near by, and when he did so, he found Blue. Wencis still receives occasional dreams from the stranger, and lately he has begun to elarn things from these dream, like a hex that can put anything to sleep.
Wencis is a bit unpredictable, usually landing him in interesting situations, much to Blues displeasure.
