Wizard/Warblade here.  Just trying to decide on the basic tactics.

DM: Will there be leveling over the course of this game, or is it a short adventure?

What I'm lookin' at at the moment:

Level   Class 1   Class 2            Feat(s)
1      Wizard 1   Warblade 1         Spell Focus, Earth Sense, Scribe Scroll
2      Wizard 2   Barbarian 1 (Lion) 1   
3      Wizard 3   Stoneblessed 1      Greater Spell Focus
4      Wizard 4   Stoneblessed 2   
5      Wizard 5   Stoneblessed 3      Heighten Spell
6      Wizard 6   Warblade 2         Earth Spell

4      M.Spec 1   Warblade 1
5      M.Spec 2   Warblade 2         
6      M.Spec 3   Warblade 3       Vexing Flanker

Yep, sufficiently different for me!

I sense an Initiate ...

You'd be right...

I'm also going for some pretty heavy Int-abuse.
At level 11, I can garner 3x Int added to my damage for one creature type one encounter/day
2x Int on damage for everyone else.

Hmm...Dan, mind if I ask how you're pulling the INT synergy?  I'm going with a Beguiler//Warblade with a dip into Mindbender on the casting side, and perhaps some Fighter or Crusader on the melee half.

Swashbuckler 3 gives a very common Int-to-damage
Warblade 7 gives Int-to-damage when you're flanking
Adaptable Flanker + Spiked Chain = Ability to flank with yourself
Eternal Blade gives you Int to damage for one monster type
Collector of Stories + monster knowledges to go with the EB.

I just really want to pounce with the white raven maneuvers.  I'm thinking wraithstrike or bladeweave , rage, charge!

LoL! This would be fun.

Yes, there will be levelling. It would be slow, but there will be.

You planning on adding Knowledge Devotion to that?  It dovetails well with Collector of Stories (by a reasonable interpretation).  It's not an extra INT, but it's up to 5 more damage *and* attack.

So here's my character sheet (missing a few things like maneuvers and hp).

As fun as a Beguiler//Warblade sounds, I'm gonna have to withdraw.  Both of the other PbPs I'm in are picking up, and I need to start brushing up to DM another.

OK. I have just reminded AC for a child board. We'll start when everyone's got their character sheets in there. Say by Friday? Or do you guys need more time?

Friday's fine by me...

Also, I won't be able to do anything over the weekends until school starts again. (August 20 or so)

If this would leave a spot open, I'm interested.
Seems as if you lads could use a trapfinder/social dude.

So my though is something like Fighter 4/Bard 16//Scout 4/Ranger 6/Dervish 10 (could naturally be more optimized, this a preliminary concept)
with Snowflake wardance, dervish dances and stuff.
A social dancer with plenty of skills, including wildlife knowledges and with an deadly fighting style.
University connection, something like a biologist with an interest in getting down and dirty for the sake of knowledge, but who enjoys a good social event when he gets the time.
[Spoiler]
Quote from: Runestar
the most effective optimization is the one you can actually get away with.  :smirk

Quote from: Vinom
(A group of nerds are called a murder because like crows we are anti-social, like shiny things, and often squack at each other over nothing for hours)

I often have to remind people not to underrate divination.  The ability to effectively metagame without actually metagaming beats the ability to set things on fire more times than not.

Before giving the advice that build X would be better of with Fist of the Forest, take a long, good look at Primal Living. Twice.

Shadowhunter - There is no fixed number of players in the game, so if you want to join, just go the the forum and post your character concept there, I guess. Note that it starts at level 6, and might take a while to get to level 7, so a level 20 build is not going to happen for a good long while.


Dan2 - Yes it has :)
