Guybrush Threepwood, and I'm a Mighty Pirate!

If you thought I was doing a Princess Bride Character, you are not a film philistine, congratulations.

Anyways, I am looking at possibly making a character based off Guybrush Threepwood, of Monkey Island fame, for this campaign. I am looking for suggested classes/archetypes and builds for this idea.

Simple rules really:
Viable but not min/maxed (1 negative stat with a max of -1)
20 pt buy
Half Elf, Human or possibly some other Human-esque race (no Half Orcs)
2 non campaign traits

I am looking at Bard Arcane Duelist maybe sprinkle in Rogue/Ninja for Improved Feint (Insult Sword Fighting) but i am undecided.

Any help or ideas would be much appreciatted.

Bard/Rogue really covers it.

Not much more to suggest but definite thumbs up for awesome concept inspiration. =)

You'll need, what, 50 con to be able to hold your breath for ten minutes? Good luck with that.

A level of internal alchemist gives breath mastery, letting you hold your breath for 1 minute per point of Con without preparation (or an hour per point after a full round action to prepare).

The level in alchemist also helps with various concoctions, to assist in spitting contests, for example.


Ok, so maybe Rogue/Alchemist (Internal Alchemist for breath holding, and perhaps Vivisectionist so Sneak attack does not suffer though I don't know), or Rogue/Fighter with 1 level dip into Alchemist for Internal Alchemist although the more we dip the more the build becomes useless.

Still, I am needing help on the actual build also. Alchemist works because anyone who has played the games knows, there is alot of mixing of stuff together that shouldn't work.

Isn't that kind of the point of Guybrush? He's completely inept, but somehow manages to muddle through.
