Need some gear help!


Pathfinder Society® General Discussion

Taldor *** Venture-Captain, Oklahoma—Tulsa aka Rob Duncan

I /know/ there are people out there who make some great lists on gear for characters and I need some help for my local PFS game!

Your mission: help me make the best possible gear list with the starting gold from First Steps for any or all of the following:

2d Level Half-Elf Rogue (classic sneak/stab trapfinder)
2d Level Half-Orc Cleric [Gorum: Destruction, Strength] (tank)
2d Level Wizard
2d Level Fighter

The list should be lightweight, suitable for varied adventuring, include weapons/armor, and any items that you think are needed. Please feel free to include the use of 2PP for a 750 gp purchase.

Thanks in advance for your help -- this is the part that bogs me down the most as a VC, working through people's gear lists after First Steps..

Rob, are these for your PCs that have been built entirely on GM credit from the First Steps scenarios?

Or are you helping out some local gamers who are less than expert with PFS and Pathfinder/3.5? (Or, to put it another way, are these 4 PCs likely to be adventuring together, or just with others?)

Spoiler:
Assumptions for when I actually post my versions of the gear lists: 6 Fame, 2 PP spent, 1387 gold (includes the 150 starting gold).

Note that I am also going to have to make some assumptions on starting feats and talents and such, as well.

Rogue: High Dex, Finesse, Skill Focus (Stealth), Stealthy

Cleric: Middle on Str, Cha, higher Wis, Armor Proficiency (Heavy)

Wizard: High Int, Spell Focus (Conj or Ench), Greater Spell Focus (same); school or universalist?

Fighter: Insufficient information. Basic information on primary combat function, and whether using an archetype, would assist.
Fighter options: Two weapon fighter, two-handed weapon fighter, combat maneuver fighter, unarmed fighter, archer fighter, polearm fighter, just off the top of my head.

Kinevon,

Sorry to have posted so little data to work from!

It's for both new "less than expert" PFS players and for GM credit characters. The gear lists should be independent of each other, meaning that they're not together as a party.

I would more or less like to have a "if you just finished First Steps, here's a completed gear list for your 2d level PC" rather than a "collective shopping list for 4 PCs".

Spoiler:

These would be good assumptions for the gear lists: 6 Fame, 2 PP spent, 1387 gold (includes the 150 starting gold).

Rogue: High Dex, Finesse, Skill Focus (Stealth), Stealthy

Cleric: Middle on Str, Cha, higher Wis, Armor Proficiency (Heavy)

Wizard: High Int, Spell Focus (Conj or Ench), Greater Spell Focus (same); school (Conj or Ench)

Fighter: I'd like to have (1) Two weapon fighter and (2) two-handed weapon fighter.
