I'm building a new character for Rise of the Runelords. Dm is making us go with core rulebook classes only (all archetypes should be available) and core races with only 15 points to play with and he says he's going to go hard on us. Knowing my group I'll probably have to provide healing, but as our groups tend to be martial heavy, I may also need to provide blasting and controlling. Does anyone have any good ideas on how I can go about this? I'm thinking druid might be good since it can handle all those spell roles and the ac won't be affected by my low ability scores.
Nah, lol the comfortable part was saying Brian was attractive. As far as Shane goes I thought the actress was bi *shrug* and she's very androgynous and I thought she'd be attractive to many people, but it's both character's confidence that really makes them attractive. Oh and as for me personally heterosexuality has nothing to do with attractiveness, my girlfriend and the mother of my baby is pansexual.

I have never seen either of these shows.
oh my! You definitely should. Queer as folk was like late 90's to the 2000's, but The L word was more recent. They were both either on HBO or Showtime...damn my fuzzy brain. EDIT: Here's a link for Queer as Folk: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0262985/ and here's the L Word: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0330251/ . Oh and here's a picture of Shane: http://blogs.citypages.com/pscholtes/Shane%20The%20L%20Word%20Scholtes.jpg

Sorry, I'm responding to such an old post, but until the intro of Shardra I had not realized there were so many LGBT folks on these forums and this discussion was linked to in that thread, but I digress. I'm a straight guy, but pretty comfortable in my own skin and have no problem admitting if a guy's attractive, so I'll give my two favorite LGBT characters neither of which were even slightly subtle. Shane from "The L Word" and I think his name was Brian from "Queer as Folk". I always found those two shows to be very well done.
very well said! I'm just a normal straight guy, but I have a lot of gay, bi, trans, pansexual, etc. Friends and they are great because they're different! I don't have to understand all the reasons they are the way they are, just love them for who they are. If only everyone could.
There's nothing wrong with in-combat healing, but there are "classes" that are more efficient about it, like Oradins. That being said a cleric built correctly can definitely keep a party up. Now, as far as non-healing clerics there are definitely good ways to go. Off the top of my head take 1st level as a cross-blooded sorcerer dip. Go Elemental (water)/Dragon or Orc. Take Magical Lineage as one of your traits choosing Fireball. If Human take Wayang Spellhunter (also fireball). Take Rime spell and eventually Dazing spell. For your cleric levels take Theologian with the Fire domain. Now, go blow up and control stuff.
Tanuki is a humanoid raccoon race, higher than most starting PC's though. You could use potentially the race creation rules to make something very similar, or convert it, that would at least be first party.
Lol, never saw those! Very cute, but definitely OP. Might see if my dm'd be willing to adjust it for balance. Although, I'm also fine with a plain old tiny raccoon that's awakened, just w/o the two extra hd and then taking class levels.
You could just put 11 in cha for your sorcerer dip, maybe crossblood with dragon or orc for extra damage and then go wizard after that for a much better selection of spells and faster progression. Take magical lineage with fireball and get Rime spell for great group control. Grabbing Irrisen Ice Mage is also a good boost and Treantmonk said Dazing spell is great with the build too. Add in a familiar with an initative bonus so you can avoid clipping your buddies and there you go damage and control.
Thanks Treant! Awesome for you to respond since I love your guides and in this case I was going against your wizard guide advice, but I was thinking the same thing. I could control the board and deal damage. I just may use fireball with lineage. It would lock up a lot of targets. Also, any ideas on race? I was thinking human for the extra feat, but they bore me since I play one in real life :)
