    Default Help with an ECL 8 Scout

    I'm in need of help in making an ECL 8 scout for a PbP set in a low-magic setting.
    CC rules below.

    Books: All core, Complete arcane, Complete warrior, Complete adventurer.
    Expanded psionic.
    Players: 4 - 6
    ECL: 8
    Races/Classes: Any
    Stat rolling: 4D6 lose the lowest
    Items: basic adventuring gear that you believe you would have obtained by 8th level. Upto 3 magic items with a total value of 23,000gp
    Hitpoints: max at level 1, add average at each other level.
    The fastest animal alive today is a small dinosaur, Falco Peregrino.
    It prays mainly on other dinosaurs, which it strikes and kills in midair with its claws.
    This is a good world

    3: Rapid Shot

    Your next level should be a Fighter level. Take Manyshot and Greater manyshot.

    +1 Shocking composite shortbow (+STR = whatever your strength bonus is): 8,300+composite bow cost

    Forgot to mention this, but I was thinking of going melee with a longspear.

    Bad idea, the only way you're gonna make that skirmish damage count is with multiple attacks, and that means either dervish or greater manyshot.

    Attention Imgur Users! Imgur apparently doesn't like hosting images anymore and only works in certain places or for people who already have the image cached: No one can see your avatars or images!
    Also Photobucket users? Don't know if it's a bandwidth or region lock or something, but I'm seeing some avatars blurred out with a watermark that looks like the photobucket icon.
    And Tinypic went down a while back, seeing plenty of old avatars showing their downed image.

    If you go the melee route you might want to do a one level dip in barbarian (if human) and grab power attack.

    With a longspear while raging this translates to about a +7 damage bonus, the equivalent of 2 dice of skirmish damage (the amount you'd gain from getting greater manyshot next level).

    In the long run this is probably still suboptimal (and unless you've got good ability scores you may end up with some MAD, especially since you can't finesse a longspear) but it'll let you do a good job as a melee skirmisher right now.

    Stats are here
    I haven't assigned them yet.

    Edit: No one or two level dips. It's a personal rule of mine

    Is this for the Player Characters to face or is it a Player Character?
    It is a joyful thing indeed to hold intimate converse with a man after one’s own heart, chatting without reserve about things of interest or the fleeting topics of the world; but such, alas, are few and far between.
