I'm kind of proud of this character. I'm also tired of looking up her build in google docs every time I level. When I started the Devoted Muse all I knew is I wanted to use Fighting Fans (Monk) and have at least two levels of Paladin. I this "missing level" in my build that I decided to fill with Gunslinger as a joke ("I need a ranged weapon, after all"). Then when I looked over it, I started seeing the synergy between Gunslinger and Devoted Muse. You want a high critical multiplier, your gunslinger deeds will still advance as a Devoted Muse and you can take Mysterious Stranger to key it all off Charisma. A little adjusting, and I came out with this.


  • As a Kitsune, I can feint at a range of 30 feet even if the target only has a 1 or 2 in Intelligence or is a different creature type, using Shapechanging Savage.
  • Charisma is added to AC (Monk), AC (Dodge Bonus; Devoted Muse), AC (Deflection Bonus; Smite), To-Hit (Smite), To Damage (Mysterious Stranger) and to Saves (Paladin).
  • Shock-Striker Takedoown makes my Pistol's Critical Multiplier x5, improving many Devoted Muse abilities if the GM lets you extrapolate them
