If you are impersonating a particular individual, those who know what that person looks like get a bonus on their Perception checks according to the table below. Furthermore, they are automatically considered to be suspicious of you, so opposed checks are always called for.

Bonus for Close Friends: is +8

Bonus for Intimacy is: +10

You'd be stupid not to, "do it..."

So basically the idea I'm looking to pull off is an un-hittable fighter, 50+ ac that is still "relatively speaking" useful, the concept I've settled on take is a 1 point Monk dip to get Crane Style, followed up by later getting Crane Wing/Deflect Arrows(I have to be able to negate natural 20s to truly be un-hittable ^_^). However I'm also going to take advantage of Monk Unarmed Strike, Close Weapon Training Synergy, and Martial Versatility so that I have an actually decent attack routine.

Anyways, if anyone would care to take a look at the build and suggest any changes I'd be happy to hear them. I like what I've got but it seems pretty feat heavy, so it's likely that I'll struggle earlier when I don't have all the supports to make the bridge stand so to speak.

Let's say our level 20 equipment is as follows:

Armor: Noqual Fullplate +5(Medium Fortification/Heavy if you've got the $)
Shield: Spiked, Bashing Mithral Heavy Shield +5
Head: Headband Mental Prowess Int/Wisdom +4/+6(Whatever you can afford)
Neck: Amulet of Mighty Fists +5 and/or Amulet of Natural Armor +5 (If you can't use the combined effects rules just drink potions of barkskin instead or better yet have the druid give you some love.)
Cloak: Cloak of Resistance +5
Gloves: Gloves of Skill At Arms
Belt: Belt of Physical Perfection +6
Rings: Ring of Protection +5/Ring of Freedom of Movement
Boots: Boots of Speed or Winged Boots
Misc: Ioun Stone Pale Green Prism/Ioun Stone Dusty Rose Prism

Assuming this is the equipment that we have and we also have a +1 inherent bonus to Dex(Let's say that's all we have for the ease of argument).
If this is the case then AC = 50 (10, +7 Dex , +14 Armour, +7 Shield, +1 Dodge, +5 Natural, +5 Deflection, +1 Bonus + Deflect Arrows) or When Fighting Defensively AC= 55 (+2 coming from 3 points in Acrobatics and Crane Style) and we Benefit from Crane Wing Blocking the First hit of any round.

Effectively speaking we'd be immune to the attack routines of most CR 19-20 monsters (Thanatotic Titan CR22 hits us on a 18+ only on its first attack, Achaekek, The Mantis God CR30 only has a 35% chance of hitting us not including Crane Wing), however the trade off must be horrible damage right? Well not really, we aren't a killer that's for sure but it isn't half bad.

When Fighting Defensively:
Heavy Shield Bash +38/+33/+28/+23 2d6+21(19-20x2) and Unarmed Strike +36/+31/+26 1d6+21(19-20x2)

or for when they start ignoring us/are easier to hit

When Power Attacking:
Heavy Shield Bash +34/+29/+24/+19 2d6+31(19-20x2) and Unarmed Strike +32/+27/+22 1d6+31(19-20x2)

Anyways I realize that this isn't exactly "super effective at all levels" and even at higher levels will struggle to stay adjacent to targets so that it can actually make full attacks. Or for that matter even make people attack us in the first place(It's not fun for Mister Balor when only natural 20s hit and they're instantly negated for an Attack of Opportunity in our favor =P), but I just thought it was pretty funny that a "Unhittable" Fighter could also have a pretty damn potent attack routine!
