Op Gold
« on: November 01, 2009, 06:39:55 PM »
Ok i had an idea the other day when i was reading the toolbelt handbook. Would it be possable to build a char that was competitive at every level if he had the resorces of Bruce Wayne?

A level 20 Aristocrat that could hang with the big leagues.
What items would you want to get your hands?

Of course you wuold get the hand book along with some wands and the basic tomes and such

Then the Bruce Wayne analogy is not an accurate one.

Candles of invocation.

Indeed. For the Bruce Wayne analogy to work, Bruce wouldn't be allowed to also be Batman.

Seriously guys, you know what he's trying to say.

Well to put a limit on it batman spent approximately 300,000,000 in the course of creating himself.
That means you have 30,000,000 gold or so to spend on him ( 10 - 1 conversion right?)

Aristocrats have decent class skills, proficiencies, and 3/4 BAB progression. So unless you're talking about a 1st level commoner, no one is without anything in D&D. But yeah, with enough money a 20th level commoner can be a threat to an archmage.

Actually... the Iron Man analogy isn't half bad.

Tony Stark physically is a physically fit individual, but I'd imagine that he isn't near the level that Bruce Wayne has honed himself to--

The Iron Man suit in itself is a great carry over though to a D&D-esque setting. It would be equal to a magical suit of armor, and a bevvy of magical accouterments as firepower.

I think the OP is referring to the wealth feat, which only Aristo's can take, and gives you NPC WBL for your level every... month was it?

Combine that with the landlord feat and...

yeah, just go look at the "living in a flying box" thread.  Hire artificers, wizards, and bards as needed.

Landlord feat is in the Strongholder Builder's Guide.

It gives you huge amounts of money every level, starting at level 9, that you can only spend on creating and improving your "stronghold" (which is defined as "a property of significant size").

Take Mercantile Background, Craft Magic Arms and Armor and that feat which reduces the gp cost of crafting (something Artisan). UMD a scroll of genesis to create a high-gravity demiplane shaped like a loop where everything is constantly falling. Put all your stuff in there and UMD an item of gate when you want to hurt someone.


That is how you fight with gold.

Wealth is probably DMG II or something from 3.0  I don't know for sure either.

landlord is stronghold builder's guide.

Typically Npcs start with 200,000 gold at 20
