What Would Deadpool's Class Be?


Conversions


I'm making a character for a comedy campaign who, his personality in a synopsis, is a child abandoned in the streets and raised by Ambush Bug and Deadpool.

What is Deadpool's class?


fighter/rogue/ranger/antipaladin/whatever he needs to be for the story, all level 20

Probably either a Ranger or the new Slayer class from the ACG.

Liberty's Edge

Gunslinger's a solid option.

I'd be tempted to go Conversion Inquisition Inquisitor to explain his charm + horrific ugliness, though.

Slayer's also solid...though Ranger feels wrong.

Pre-Slayer, Ranger with Favored Enemy (Humanoid: Human) and Favored Terrain (Urban) would have made absolute sense for Deadpool. He is a merc and hitman afterall.

Gunslinger doesn't seem right or necessary to me (you've got to assume that that setting uses the "Guns Everywhere" rules and they only require simple proficiency), Grit's just... I don't know, it's not really something I see for him. If anything, things are more likely to go wrong, he's just got a body that's immune to his mistakes and a strange kind of insane tactical genius. I'd say Rogue, but, you know, he's obviously got martial weapon proficiencies (amongst others), and he's too good in a fight for a 3/4 BAB.

Slayer's pretty much the way to go now that it exists.

I guess if you refluffed it quite a bit Inquisitor has the toolset to copy most of his abilities.

...Monk...? It does Flurry and Teleport after all, and it's unarmored AC bonuses are appropriate to a character who backflips and rolls around blows.

I would say Ranger, and allow him a weasel animal companion.

Hah!

I feel like a Deadpool character replacing Weasel with an actual weasel is starting to tip-toe over a dangerous line into certifiable Minsc and Boo territory.

Gunslinger/Ninja

I'd make him a gesalt character and use one of my custom races (one that has DR and fast healing, by race points it's no stronger than the aasimar) though the custom race part isn't a must have, he'd do just fine as a human
For class levels I'd give him something like alchemist (grenadier) 11/monk (gun fu)*9 ninja 10/assassin 9/ red mantis assassin 1
*given that he probably has negative wisdom mod take the king fu genius or ascetic mage feats to swap wisdom based class features to int or cha
Take the alchemist discovery "tumor familiar" take the feats improved familiar and leadership, chose a familiar with fast healing or regeneration make your tumor your cohort, give tumor levels of the psionic class "vitalist" add yourself to the tumor's collective, siphon the fast healing to yourself, when nessairy have the tumor heal or buff you with it's psionic healing spells
Be sure to also pick up the preserve organs and mummification discoveries (any leftovers should go into your bombs)
Be sure to give him the feat "web of steel" and some two weapon fighting feats,
You now have an ugly, cancerous, regenerating mutant super weapon who talks to himself and uses a variety of guns and two katanas and throws bombs around like a maniac
Alternativly instead of monk you could go 2 weapon fighting ranger, or even split it up between them
