For reference, my build will be the monk healer I presented in my Monk Handbook: monk 2/psywar 2/unarmed SS 2/Initiate of Draconic Mysteries 8/Fist of the Forest 3/Shadow Sun Ninja 1/Warshaper 2.  Likely getting rid of four IoDM levels for more Warshaper (reach) and Crusader levels (Thicket of Blades).  If I can't do psywar, then I'll look into other ways to grow.  Or use medium to my advantage (there are feats that make tripping insane).

Hmmm... I think tripping is going to be a recurring and overused strategy in this game...

How to implement some variety?

Simple. Some people knock the guy's legs out from under him, while others just bowl him over. :eh
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

I forsee the need for a Bloodstorm Blade for range stuff...

Also, will we have magic items and stuff for healing?  DM response I guess...

I detect a massive amount of ToB characters appearing. Was thinking about an archer build of some sort, will need to start pulling out all of the various guidebooks and sourcebooks to see what's appropriate.

Archer...Hmm...you could do battlefield control there too!  I kid, I kid.  But it is possible, and I'm working on one.

I could go a different route, it's just that I tend to do swift hunters and tripping monks.  Like, all the time.

I guess I could try out my new swift hunter using a level or two of warlock.  Does that count as casting?

I'm surprised Boomerang Daze hasn't been mentioned yet...
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

Wuzzat?

Races of Eberron. Take a good long look and check out the Save DC. Add Master Thrower 5 for Touch attacks, Power Throw and any damage boosts you can find. You can easily get the range of the Boomerang up to 150 ft increment.

I think the idea looks interesting.  I haven't really done anything board based before, but I wouldn't be against DM'ing this campaign as long as I know kind of what to expect.

Will you really do it? That would be super amazing!

On the note of what I will play, I'm looking at Fighter 20  :P

I know atrocity.  He's thinking it over.  He said that if he can come up with a good story to run the campaign with he'd do it.

Sounds good, although it should be one where heroes keep reappearing from a dispenser we carry with us :P

If I know him half as well as I think I do, we shouldn't have too much trouble working new characters into the plot.
