    Default Kithen: OOC

    This is the OOC thread for my Kithen: Overrun by the Undead Campaing.

    Everyone should make a post acknowledging that they have reached this thread as well as claiming a color for their character to talk in.

    Kumori, if you would be so kind as to post another table containing the finalists, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I'll put the IC link in the post as soon as it is up.

    Earon Tarkil will speak in navy.

    So, about what we discussed off-line. What are your thoughts?

    Kumori: Could you just switch Kaballa to Vishra in Doc_Pippin's entry into the table. He's using the new character.

    Now, before I get started there is one thing that I need to mention. As far as party balance goes, I have one major concern. A few of you have stats that are quite a bit higher than everyone else's respective stats. Razorback, any creature capable of hitting you would almost always hit everyone else. distant quasar, your saves are quite a bit higher than everyone else's. I'm not concerned by anyone's attack bonuses or hit points.

    I would just like to ask that you, distant quasar, find a way to tone down your saves a bit to put them more in line with everyone else. (One in the thirties is fine, but having them all over 40 makes you pretty much immune to everything that requires a save.) Razorback, I'd also like you tone down your AC. Put it somewhere in the forties so that things can actually hit you. I'm sorry to ask you guys of this, but the game is no fun if one or two people are vastly more powerful than everyone else. I can't balance an encounter as easily with such discrepancies in the stats. They can still be higher than everyone else's, as that's obviously where one of your strength's lie, but somewhere around 5 points higher would be preferable to a 15-20 points difference.

    Regarding the AC variance, Godricks AC isn't his primary defense. He doesn't even have any items that help improve it (+Dex not withstanding). My defense comes mostly from Blurred Alacrity (concealment) and Evasive Celerity (essentially concealment against targeted spells), occasionally boosted by Greater Mirror Image.

    @ the Party: Should we discuss our combat tactics, or wing it through first encounter and discuss that after the fact IC?

    Im a mid range defensive fighter who can shut down opponents one or two at a time. My main method is sand tombing the weak willed opponents or using AoE burst moves to slay mooks, I carry some healing and a lot of utility spells.

    I think I qualify as a very long range fighter with various supporting/field control abilities. Main combat style is to be constantly moving, taking full-attacks only when the enemy is very far away.

    Kara combat tactics are (hopefully) mostly centered around channeling cleric touch spells through reach weapons to buff/heal the party and/or debuff/deal (hopefully) copious amounts of damage to the enemy. I still need to dive into the specifics of a few spells I chose b/c I'm a baddie, but the gist of it is doing things like full-attack channeling things like Heal, Enlarge Person, Disrupting Weapon, Toxic Weapon, Bestow Curse, Touch of Idiocy, Withering Palm, Harm, or any number of empowered+maximized cure spells.

    I'm hoping everyone (players and DM) are ok with PCs allowing me to hit them to save me spells per day

    Razorback, I'd also like you tone down your AC. Put it somewhere in the forties so that things can actually hit you.
    Ok, so I see a couple of easy ways to accomplish this.
    1) Either Arcane Aegis doesn't work on Earon (but, that means I can still provide a +12 morale to AC to up to 3 allies in 30') which would put him at 47.
    2)I could dump War Mage altogether. I'd have to redo the character and would probably take Initiate of the Seven Fold Veil, with your permission, and, possibly dumping Master Transmogrifist2 to accomplish this since I saw the 2 tied together, but it would really only mean a different feat selection but I'd gain a CL back. Or, War Weaver from Heroes of Battle with some minor changes.

    The former is easier while allowing Earon to pump up a couple of others AC's, creating something of a safe zone around him.
    The latter would change him from being an abj/evoc/trans almost exclusively to more of an abjurist.

    Either way works for me as it doesn't greatly vary the main them of Earon. Let me know your thoughts and we'll make it happen.

    Should we discuss our combat tactics
    Earon is primarily lockdown in combat. With Thicket of Blades, Combat Reflexes-Karmic Strike, and the 20' reach of Thunderlance he should be able to hold the line, so to speak. He can Enlarge or Polymorph to increase the threat range as needed.
    Magic is either defensive or buffing in nature, with some utility.

    Serrane will focus on battlefield control though illusion spells and some enchantment abilities. He also has some nice ranged blasting abilities and a few other tricks from invocations and SLAs.

    I suppose I should state my tactics too.

    Godrick is a hit-and-run kinda guy. 100' move action with a full attack somewhere in the middle. He has magic as a back-up for when melee fails, but mostly prepares self-buffs.

    Aww poop.... as I'm typing this, I just realized I can't persist Haste. Without that, I may have to switch out some of my feats (as that was something I was aiming for with my selection). Anyone know if there's a metamagic I add in that will make it fit the "personal or fixed" range requirement?

    Don't think there's a metamagic feat for that, and all magic items I can think of have a set duration for haste. Best I can think of is take a Craft feat and make an item that has a permanent haste effect on the wearer. The downside of being permanently hasted is outlined here.

    That wouldn't trigger all the swiftblade goodies that go with it

    Edit: Well, I guess I could ditch the persist feat in favor of Improved Initiative for a +24 total. Hmm... Yeah that sounds good, unless someone can help me persist it.

    Hmm....

    I read over the Swiftblade class, and I think I've found a solution:

    It's not quite persisting, but slap extend spell on that and you've got a free 36 rounds of haste. If we don't finish the encounter in that time, we're doing something wrong

    That's pretty much what I'm planning now. Haven't made the changes to spells prepped, but extending it is probably unnecessary. CL 22 = 22 rounds already, 44 if extended. I'm thinking 3 preps of it is likely enough.

    I'm going to be doing a bit of driving over the next couple of days, but I'll post when I can.

    hpboy111, I made the change from War Mage to War Weaver. Let me know if there are any issues with this.
    I forgot that I would loose another caster level if I did that, so I'm staying War Mage but fluffed it that Arcane Aegis doesn't affect him.

    And a heads up that may have no effect but I'll be on the safe side: I'll be going on a family trip to Chigago from the 27th to the 3rd, and I don't know how connected to the internet I'll be during that time. There will definitely be some time I have access, but still, just heads up.
