New Character


Advice

Liberty's Edge

I need to make a new PFS Character to put some GM credits on. Ive been collecting them and I get to start at level 4, or if I put it off for 2 more GM slots, lvl 6. I'd like some suggestions for something different to play, maybe something with a really cool gimmick.
Boons Available: Race- Nagagi, Kitsune, Wayang
Extra Trait
Shoanti Clan Boon
Here are my current Classes/Levels. I'd appreciate something kind of outside what I already play.
1-Wizard 11 Human(Conjurer with Summon Monster Tactics)
2-Paladin 5 Human(Sword and Board for High AC)
3-Druid 6 Halfling (Rides a Roc Animal Companion, Mounted Combat Feats)
4-Ninja 6 Human (TWF, Bleeding Sneak)
5-Cleric 5 Dhampir (Channel Negative Energy focused Cleric)
6-Ranger 2/Barbarian 8 Dwarf(Invulnerable ranger with Natural weapons)
7-Oracle 6 Aasimar (This is a Fire Oracle attempting to Immitate Sarenrae)
8-Alchemist 2 Barbarian 4 Human(Ragechemist/Invulnerable Rager)
9-Gunslinger 3 Goblin (self explanatory)
10-Wizard 6 Sorceror 1 Human (Blaster Wizard)
11-Gunslinger 1 Cavalier 1 Human (Luring Cavalier, Musket Master AKA Cowboy)
12- ????????

Gimme some ideas?

Silver Crusade

Nagaji Arcane Duelist bard?

Well, I'm not seeing much gish in there, so you might go with a melee cleric or a magus or eldritch knight or something.

You also don't seem to have much in the way of support or skill-focused PCs, so you might go with a bard or a support wizard.

Or do both, with an arcane duelist bard or a buff-focused eldritch knight (transmuter, perhaps).

You describe their combat roles, but do you have anybody who focuses on out-of-combat skills? I've got a halfling ninja with a +26 in Bluff, and he's tons of fun to play. A Kitsune enchanter could do that too. Also, unless it's your ragechemist, I don't see any "Power Attack with a greatsword" damage monsters. That might be worth a try.

You have an addiction. Seek help.

I'm trying! I'm planning to make a straight-up caster, just as soon as the slot is no longer competing with my and my wife's twin PCs for my limited supply of playable 1-5s. I'll get better, I swear!

You also don't appear to have any combat maneuver types in there, so a Fighter (Lore Warden) might be an interesting variant.

Combat maneuvers, Knowledge skills, can even mix in two-handed Power Attack in the build, so it won't be useless when knowledge is eclipsed by a Wizard, and the enemies aren't vulnerable to combat maneuvers.

(Yes, I know, I have an addiction, as well... But it isn't the build style you might think it is. My archer builds are only at 12th and 2nd levels, at present. It is purely coinxidence that my 10th and 7th level builds are fighters who do combat maneuvers. Heck, one of them doesn't even have any, beyond the class-provided Combat Expertise, combat maneuver feats.)


As half these are human, I was going to suggest some of the racial archetypes from ARG. I like the flavor of most of them. Then I realized you have some uncommon races, (goblin AND dhampir? nice :).

Level 6 is when you can qualify for most prestige classes. Since you get to skip the dangerous levels, you can do some unusual routes to a PrC. Does unusual route count as a really cool gimmick?

Bard/Dragon Disciple
Summoner/oracle/mystic theurge
Paladin/shadowdancer
witch/barbarian Eldritch Knight
and a nagaji I am considering: paladin/sorcerer/dragon disciple.

There is a Term mentioned which I cannot seem to get defined for me, What is Gish? Also Nagagi Dragon Disciple sounds good, but I don't like the Paladin Route.. In PFS I find the table variation difficult to deal with.


A Gish is a githyanki fighter-magic user from 1st addition AD&D, IIRC. It's also rpg shorthand for any kind of warrior-wizard class. Magus being the prime PF example.
