A group of friends are going to run a game that is a one shot, and I was asked to join. The campaign is 7th level with 20 pt buy and average starting gold. Only 4 people. I have no idea what is in the dungeon or what the story is about it other than it is in a tower in a desert that has a lot of old-school traps. No one has cemented their roles yet, so I talked with a friend about cool combinations we could do. Since we're both into classes that other people aren't big fans on, we decided that it would be good to do Rogue/Shadow dancer and Monk/Shadow dancer. I wanted to do Monk, because I prefer them to Rogue. The bonus to saves makes the Monk real nice, as well as starting out late enough to do a PrC, regardless of how good it really is. I mean... if we have a competent Wizard, we should be fine, right?
Here comes the real issue. I really want to have Janni Style and Janni tempest for my feats, and I also have to make prerequisites for Shadow Dancer. That means out of the 5 basic and 2 additional feats, I have 5 of my 7 feats planned already.
Then there's the fact that, since we're doing a combination of characters, we wanted a teamwork feat. We wanted Stealth Synergy so that we could hide in each other's shadows and get huge bonuses. So that makes 6 of 7 feats.
Because Shadow Dancer relies on Dexterity more so than Strength, I thought I'd take Weapon Finesse and grab an AoMF that is Agile, so that I don't really need a lot of strength. So that's all 7 feats.
But Janni style and Flowing Monk rely on Tripping, and I really wanted to take Agile Maneuvers so that I add my good dex instead of poor Strength score. So that's... 8 of 7...
There's this great feat that compliments the build perfectly called Vicious Stomp. I knock an opponent down and get an AoO that is an Unarmed Strike. I thought I should grab that feat because it works so well with the character. That makes... 9 of 7.
I really need help selecting which feats to take, what my Point buy looks like, and what Items I need to pull this off effectively. The only thing I'm set on is Flowing Monk, Shadow Dancer, and Janni Style. Everything else is subject to change. There currently is no deadline, but it would be nice to know sooner than later. What is the best way to pull this off without shooting myself in the foot?
