Thanks for the great suggestions. The Quick Runner's Shirt is definitely something I will want to buy, but I can afford it from my personal coffers. Bear Traps seem awesome. I was immobilised by an NPC recently. I think the Bear Traps will be a nice way to stickit to my GM.
My current build is:
Theibar Temidus (Elf Ranger)
Str 18 (enhanced); Dex 16; Con 12; Int 14; Wis 18; Cha 12
AC 22 = Studded Leather +2, Ring of Protection +1, Amulet of Natural Armour +1, Jingasa of the Fortunate Solider +1. Plus 2 when dual wielding, and plus 3 when against Humans.
Persuasion (to be removed), Quick Draw, Throw Anything, Hammer The Gap, Favoured Defence (Human), TWP, iTWP, Two-Weapon Rend, Boon Companion, Two-Weapon Defence (Bonus story feat)
Favoured Enemy (Human +6, Undead +2, Outsider Evil +2)
Favoured Terrain (Forrest +4, Mountains +2)
My General strategy in combat is to get in close and blend. Sometimes I will default to a bow. If the combatant is a favoured enemy, I may cast Return Weapon (communal) on my gear and Quick Draw to throw my weapons if I do not want to get too close. I often use Instant Enemy on the odd occasion we come against a significant, non-favoured enemy, foe.
