Yesterday, as my game rapped up, my party was fighting an Advanced Purple Worm and due to some mistakes lost their Awakened Bear Barbarian (Everyone calls him the Bear-barian.) So my question is: what would you do if you brought back an animal with Reincarnate? Do you make it a Humanoid or just return it to life as a bear?
Recently I started a homebrew game with my closest friends and out of the blue the my friend, lets call him "D" decided to play an evil monk. He did this with full knowledge of the party configuration.
I've tried to convince him to alter alignments slightly or make a more cohesive character but he politely refuses and says he knows what he is doing. He hides his alignment with magic (they are 4th level) but I think his luck will soon run out and get kabobed on the Rangers Arrow. What should I do, just let things play out?
An Alchemist (any archetype will do) with a multiclass in Rogue or Wizard might work but my real suggestion is that you ask you DM/GM if you can maybe use (and I know it isn't one of the books you mentioned, sorry) the Artificer from the Eberron Campaign Setting. That has provided many a great steampunk/future style characters. His infusions can be flavored as technology since they take 10 minutes to cast and are neither, as the ECS states, neither arcane or divine.
