before that I'd gravitate to something like a Soulknife or Aegis, then I'd get an epiphany about another class, like the Malefex or Cryptic, after mulling over on it some.

TBH I only know Soulknife and Aegis (and very roughly, crytpic) from that group. Aegis/Soulknife has given me one of my favorite gestalt builds :D (what do you get the metapsionic fighter for xmas when they can manifest everything they need :P).

The Spheres of Might and Power do seem interesting though- if I've got my reading correct on them, they offer more along the lines of customizable spell-like abilities/Schools-Bloodlines-Domains/Ki powers for Power and customizable Talents and abilities with Might. ;)

Yes, essentially spheres hyper-emphasizes customizability, including casting tradition (ability score, drawbacks, etc.). Each spheres system (power, might) has a very generic class to let you build the character you envision. For power (casting) it's the Incanter (build-a-mage). My character's profile has sufficient links to get started with a short read for anyone interested.

Hi c c,

I think we've made some passing, mutually supportive comments on the Boards over the years, but this will be the first time we're playing together.

I'm looking forward to it :)

I am not familiar with the two 3rd party classes you propose, but if you're interested in my opionion, I like the sound of the Malafex, and think (oddly maybe?) that a tengu would fit the theme/spirit of this game well.

Having said that, I'm a big believer in playing whoever is most fun for you ;)

Ditto.

By the way, do we have anyone who can pick locks? Bam isn't trained.

Sounds good to me, Yours is mined, and likewise looking forward to playing in this adapted adventure with you and the others. :)

Both Chuufa and Praxis have access to the Trapfinding class feature via their 3pp classes, so the party should be covered there. :)

Gonzo Multiclass Man:

"Baby-sitting" a Tengu Malefex:

Some minor bits of corrections (or clarifications) for both characters...

*****

Although I did list a partially charged CLW wand as a prospective equipment for Praxis, there's a small part of me wondering if I should have 2 partially charged wands, 5 charges each, of both CLW and 1 other Bard Spell- mebbe Share Language... if needed- instead. ;)

Otherwise, Praxis could assist others in combat with his whip if he doesn't have a good shot and if his spells/powers [a +2 Dexterity with Minor Metamorphosis] or class abilities do not apply. Additionally, his Altered Defense ability from the 3pp Cryptic class is usable 7x's each round/per day.

*****

For Chuufa's changes, I forgot to add in for his 3rd Least Malefaction at 2nd level, which will be Steal Stamina.

Also, if there would be an issue with Chuufa's Tengu Swordtrained racial trait in using Weapon Finesse on an Aldori Dueling Sword [seems allowed in Herolab, oddly enough], I can easily change it over to an Estoc instead and having the silvered slingstones be just regular slingstones- leaving Chuufa with 19 gold pieces and 1 silver piece leftover, which will allow him to purchase an Alkali flask for 15gp too. Both the Estoc and Aldori Dueling Sword are usable with 1 or 2 hands [hence the 14 Str stat] which was what I had narrowed down to Chuufa's main weapon of choice.

Also, due to the Make Do School of Hard Knocks talent, Chuufa can have any of his manufactured weapons, armors, or tools/equipment be considered as Masterwork and he'd take no penalty for not having any tools on the off-chance that he'd be without his stuff. ;)

*****

PS. Looks like there's 2 votes for the Tengu Malefex then. Chuufa's off doing victory laps, fists held up high, around the metaphorical field. Too bad that I don't have the heart to tell him that there's two others that have yet to weigh in their votes- if any. ;p

I really don't like to influence another player's choice, so yeah I was abstaining.

"Hah! Chuufa and Leandrie has big win! Boring gunman and dumb mule has to stay behind in Lodge!"

Looks like Tengu and Sheep have taken the lead! Chuufa's comparatively more PFS-compliant than Praxis, whose main ranged damage gimmick, thanks to his Grammaton archetype plus the Spell Cartridges feat, seems to be using his gun attack of either bullet or a swift action Arcane Strike 'empowered force bullet' attack- combined with his Disrupt Pattern Ranged Touch attack damage (but won't have precise shot nor point-blank shot)- so his ranged attacks will be a bit limited in effectiveness though. Then DM rel20 has to determine if the misfire chances apply too, unless there's been an unofficial faq on it. ;p

Edit from Today/cc:

PS. Sincerest apologies in advance for any possibly-probable trouble that could potentially ensue or arise from Chuufa's presence in the upcoming adventure-mission... maybe Leandrie too... but seriously, how much more trouble can a sheep be as a beast of burden? Rhetorical question, I know. ;)

PPS. Chuufa himself was originally one of 10 different prospective character choices for an other-planar game; needless to say, he wasn't chosen but he did have the advantage of having much more time to percolate in my brain compared to Praxis. ;p

From d20pfsrd:

"An dueling sword can be used as a martial weapon (in which case it functions as a longsword), but if you have the feat Exotic Weapon Proficiency (dueling sword), you can use the Weapon Finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a dueling sword sized for you, even though it isn’t a light weapon. You can also wield a dueling sword in two hands to apply 1-1/2 times your Strength bonus to damage rolls."

And in case the question is specifically about gaining proficiency with the dueling sword as a part of Swordtrained, take a look here.

The GM should always have final say, of course, but yes—the intent of the tengu's ability is that it should be proficient in all swordlike weapons.

@Chuufa - can you put your character info in your profile please?

"Chuufa glad to be onboard!", the disguised Tengu-turned-adolescent sqwacks out before pulling along a much burdened load-bearing Sheep, "... and Leandrie to."

Thank you very much for the consideration, DM rel20, and a huge shout-out to the Creative Director Saurian for his expressed input all those years ago, as well. :)

Will do- or to quote/paraphrase some Bioware Baldur's Gate Comp-Rpg voiced avatar character's responses, "done and done..."

I might have lost a non-trivial amount of time to NWN. So yeah that line is familiar :)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Bioware. What a great company... isometric RPG's were on a run until Ubisoft spewed out that crap pile that is Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor.

Ah, NWN! Fond memories...

Anyhoo, I'm back from chaperoning 5th grade camp. That was a lot. Good, but a lot.

My hat is off to you, Ma'am!

5th graders? Where to? As rewarding as that sounds, traveling via bus with kids that age would require heavy drinking... or a sound wall.

One of the chaperones had earplugs. Wise man.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Heh. My daughter just started kindergarten and the kids are relatively well behaved on the bus. Half of them are glued to the window watching everything. Although maybe nowadays 5th graders are just on TikTok and game apps as opposed to what I recall…

Haha! They were forbidden to bring electronics.

On a related note, there was a landline in the common area of our lodge. I had to stop the kids from dialing random numbers for prank calls. Some things never change.

Now *that* sounds like 10yo me :D

Would it be frowned upon to give them mandatory viewing assignments first?

Honestly, it seems like a harmless rite of passage compared to the trouble kids can get into nowadays. :)
