Tome of Battle is fine.  I'll leave it to you guys to determine if you are ok with party overlap or not.

Thanks Schala_Zeal. And Blade, I'm gonna go more along the lines of Tiger Claw, with some splashing for other manuevers.
YAY! I get to go to the SPECIAL hell!

Awesome, I wanted to do Samurai-style with Iron Heart/Diamond Mind, but now, I'm thinking Stand Still Crusader.

Is there any special CS outline you want us to use, or just whatever is clean and works?

I'm not quite done, but I think I am close, I probably ought to put it up for critique to see if there is anything else I can get out of it. Is chitin armor okay? It is a material that doesn't count as metal and gives a dex bonus.
The more I see of people, the more I love my dog.

Experience

Background
One such as Bhaur in the mercenary line of work did not rise to become as feared as he is through strength of arms alone.  His early acceptance of the human faith of the Sovereign Host gave him the conviction that lesser goblinoids lacked.  They were subsequently crushed beneath his heel- in an honorable fashion, but ruthlessness nevertheless still runs strong in his bugbear blood.  Heavily scarred from many skirmishes, Bhaur bears them with pride, relating the tales of his victories only when pressed.  He visibly lacks totems and fetishes, other things that his primitive brethren adore, a sign in and of itself that they should be disdained, because he believes in the ascendancy of civilization in his homeland.  When the call went out for champions of Darguun, he was one of the first to answer.

Got room for one more?
I've never read any Eberron, but I've been itching to play a Goblin since I started reading the webcomic!
I may do something simple like a Goblin Rogue (wilderness rogue variant) or even a warg-riding Ranger/Scout (Swift Hunter).

If you have spot id like to chip in too. Was thinking of playing a goblin druid with this really backwater primitive voodooy feel. Ive got some Eberron play experience ( we even went through Darguur once).

Here are the people who are in:
Blade2718
Nodaisho
ZeroSpace
Shadowhunter

The following have expressed interest:
j0lt
Lektor
AlisAtAn

I would like to keep it at 6, and don't know if AlisAtAn is still interested since he was interested in a more evil feel.

How are you handling XP for characters with LA?  Do you have just enough XP to be ECL 5 and then have to deduct from your total to buy off LA?

Ok, I see Martial Adepts, concepts for Druids and Swift Hunters...
Which makes me ponder wether or not Haste would be a worthwile investment for us, considering that:
1. Maneuvers are not full attack actions.
2. Skirmish damage are not triggered by ranged full attacks, due to the movement clause.

So with that in mind, what spells would you all like me to cast on you?
I've got 14 lvl 1's, 8 lvl 2's and 4 lvl 3's. (collegiate wizard)
Fly is obvious but what else?

Working on a CS, will post asap.

That depends on Schala.
If I go with a mount such as a Worg, would the mount's movement count towards my required movement for Skirmish damage?

I'm not really sure what buffs I want, I have not played much above level 3. I am going to be self-buffing with a bull's strength, as a third level druid, I won't have much when it comes to spell slots, but I will probably buy a wand of lesser vigor, should heal... 11 HP per charge, if I am not mistaken. If you all just survive until the battle is over, I can fill everyone back up with that.

Jolt, even if Schala did allow it to count (which I would think it should), you can't make a full attack after your animal moves, barring some later level abilities of some PRCs.

I'm assuming you are talking about me when you say druid, I am not going farther than 3 in druid, just took it because I wanted an animal companion for a mount, since I am going to be using a lance.

Schala, would you let me have the worg as an animal companion? It seems like it is a bit better than any of the comparable companions, but I think of worgs as being, in general, the ride of choice for goblins.

Greater magic weapon would be good.  Just looking at the SRD, I see: enlarge person, protection from arrows and protection from alignment.

Really?  I'd think that it would, since riding an animal counts as a free action (if I recall correctly)
