I'm curious, mang - cue me in and I might sign up!

@JWO: Let's just re-flavor it to be a "Dragonspawn of Tiamat"-style template.  But check your build thread on the main forum . . . I had an idea you might like . . .  :smirk
Maybe you could just convince aftercrescent to allow you to take the 5-fold breath as a CN DFA?

Ah, but then I wouldn't have access to bonus feats from Elder Evils . . .  :smirk

Okay, so here's my attempt at making a Shadow Pouncer that will play well from level 1 onwards:

I'm assuming flaws are allowed...

Swordsage 1      Weapon Focus (B), Dodge, Mobility, Shadow Blade, TWF
Swashbuckler 1      Weapon Finesse (B), Arcane Stunt (Expeditious Retreat)
Swashbuckler 2      Blind-Fight
Swashbuckler 3
Totemist 1
Totemist 2      Spring Attack
Jaunter 1
Swordsage 2      Assassin’s Stance & Shadow Jaunt
Telflammar Shadowlord 1   Improved TWF
Telflammar Shadowlord 2
Telflammar Shadowlord 3
Telflammar Shadowlord 4   Kung fu Genius
Telflammar Shadowlord 5

It has great synergy for Dex (attacks, damage, Jaunter uses per day, AC, Init, skills) and for Int (damage, AC, Shadowlord spells, Arcane stunt uses, skill points, Chameleon Arcane Focus spells), bonus damage (Shadow Blade, Insightful strike, Sneak Attack) and ends up with lots of very cool options up his sleeve.

Not sure where I'd go with it after that - I doubt we'll get that high tbh - most likely get the Mobility Enhancement on my armour, retrain Mobility to Able Learner and then take Chameleon 7 to close it out (for buffs and teleport spells :D).

Anyone got any thoughts on ways to improve on that?

We sure do, we sure do. My evil incarnata (not the class you silly!) gnome Illusionist is waiting for pulling some pranks on our enemies.

Wow. So shit exploded when I passed out?! hehe. I'm back and catching up...

Still got a little over 3 hours till my cut off :P

+1 to the shifty smiley. We needs it!

Tshern - If you all want to use it, that's fine. From my reading it does say any divination spell. My only caveat will be that if the spell is on the wiz/sorc list as well as another, you must use the wiz/sorc level.

Dave - I have it, I can give you the details if you're in and interested in it

Sorry Tshern. I have work at 9:30, so by 10 things should be calm and I'll have free time. Then I can pull invisible castle and roll some random numbers so I don't feel too bad when some people don't get in.

You roll the gamers? Oh my, I am the least lucky man in the world when it comes to dice. I will keep my thumbs and hope for the best.

Well I'll be rolling for the Lurker party
My CO Regular party will be completely and unshamefully biased. :eh

I look foward to working with you again, Tshern. I can only guess at the others.
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

Ah, our flawless teamwork shall be continued. May ask what sort of kick ass are you delivering this time?

I'd volunteer just to get the game going, but the Iron Siege, my new D&D project and entrance exams are sapping away my time way too much. However, I might be running a game here during the summer if there are any takers at that time.

I'd play a Dread Necromancer or a Sha'Ir (Dragon Compendium) too, if this would balance whichever party.  Kind of leaning towards the Dread Necro, but the Sha'Ir would fill the arcane caster role much better.  The DN would be very flavorful w/ the evil party, but the Shi'ar could work just as easily.

Illumian Naenhoon w/ the DN, not sure w/ the Sha'Ir (prob. Spellscale).

Dread Necro? I am so adding Tomb-tainted soul to my list of feats. Heighten spell can easily wait till level 3.

I agree. That's going to be awesome. More awesome than me. And I'm pretty darn awesome.

Just the thought of you possibly running one sometime over the summer would be awesome. Once everything settles, I'll PM you the list of people who don't get in this time, so maybe you can give them a little preference :wink
