need help making some npcs for a friend


Advice


Friend of mine turned to me for some ideas for pathfinder versions of some characters from a series she and I read (with a few twists).

long story short, i need ideas for 3 10th-level characters: a luck-stealing pirate, an anti-magic gunmage, and pretty much a person who *is* the ocean.

current ideas I've got are:
luck pirate: something with witch, because that is the only class that comes to mind that's bent around making yourself more fortunate and others less so.

antimagegun: i'm thinking myrmidarch magus, with the appropriate gun feats and pretty much nothing but dispel magic and the like prepared, or a spellbreaker inquisitor or something.

totally-not-poseidon: aquatic druid with the water(oceans) domain/subdomain.

.

any ideas/suggestions/alternatives would be appreciated.


think i'll bump this once and go chill elsewhere for a while.


Some alternatives:

luck pirate: Cleric with the luck domain and weather/water/travel. Luck or Fate alternate channel ability.

antimagegun: Spellslinger? don't know much about them, but my favorite anti-mage IS a mage.

totally-not-poseidon: Aquatic Bloodline sorcerer with totally-not-a-trident >_> or Wizard water elementalist?


For the luck-stealing pirate, you could try a halfling with the Halfling Jinx altnernate racial trait, and some of the associated jinx feats. They aren't particularly strong, but they fit the theme.

Taking some levels of Bard, Rogue or Fighter, and then maybe going into the Halfling Opportunist prestige class might also be appropriate.

i was thinking of

honestly it's better to go gunslinger/wizard/ek than to gimp yourself so astoundingly with that archetype.
i was also thinking of picking up EH for aquatic bloodline, actually.

my friend's kinda leery on non-humans, but i'll throw the idea their way and see if they like it.
