    But why anyone would feed a living human being's still beating heart to a dog is beyond me; you miss out on something wonderful if you don't eat it yourself.
    And yes, I do understand the concept very well indeed. It's just that my sanity has had a very... impersonal relationship with me lately. We aren't really on speaking terms, you see.

    Wait... so all of my favorite dragon magazine content (with exception to 3.5 epic destines), such as cerebrosis and the aberrant paragon, were published by Piazo? I didn't realize that before, but checking, so it is..

    What does that make it in relation to pathfinder, given it was published by the same company?

    A reverse of the situation. Content made by the first party, but for a different game.

    Another blurry thing with Pathfinder is the fact that Pathfinder books started in 3.5e. So there are Pathfinder books that were written by Paizo, but aren't properly first party material because they were actually 3rd party material for a different game. But sometimes those books Are first party material... and other times they are retconned out of existance (poor half-elves, they were cool with their crystal powers).

    Where did they have crystal powers? I simply have to see that for myself.

    So, Dragon Magazine (at least as produced by Paizo) sort of exists in a strange limbo for pathfinder. Weird. At least there is an official way to update most of that content mechanically. Shame there is not flavor conversion guide though.


    Back to the track. Who's next to get an NPC built in their honor?

    Ultimately, I would like something that could be used in a regular game. Something with effectively 40+ levels isn't that. Of course, that's not up to me, as is how people choose to stat you, which is also not up to you. That's the fun part.

    I do like the "losing your truename" bit. That could be good for a campaign...
    Well, why did you think I statted you the way I did? Your npc is perfect for usage in a campaign by any DM against any party with any level of optimization. Well, I suppose except for a party with negative optimization, but if you prep npcs for a part with negative optimization, you're trying too hard.

    Are you more a lute-bard or a vocalist-bard?

    I mean if I make you is the only way you won't be a bard-bard I suspect, because I am obstinately refusing to make anybody using official classes, but lute-bard and vocalist-bard end up quite different.

    Mostly vocal with support of several instruments. I'm mostly the know-everything bard with connections to everyone and can con a drow priestess into handing over her holy symbol (not as difficult as you'd think with the right skillset). I'm the founder of the Bardic Network, a connection of information brokers that keeps all bards informed about anything going on around them. That's why bards seem to know exactly what's going on and who to talk to next.

    Unfortunately Courtier does not have a musical path, since they fall under the "form information network and profit" philosophy (and minions... lots of minions).

    Also drow priestesses don't have particularly high Sense Motive given the civilization they're raised in. Actually most drow don't. It really explains why their rather obvious and easily derailed plots need random surface dwellers to stop them. So that's what a +12 bluff? Maybe +8? 1 level dip in Warlock for Beguiling Influence and a Hat of Disguise. I have a low opinion of drow society.

    Like I said, not that difficult.

    I spec Diplomancer, mostly. The musical stuff is just a convincing cover. Sure, I can Inspire Courage/DFI when I need to, or even Snowflake Wardance when it's needed. But my biggest kickers are mind-effecting abilities, knowledge of everything, and charm. Not just charm spells, just a ridiculously high intelligence and charisma and maxed out social skills. The Leadership feat helps.

    I think most Gundam characters would end up in Acheron, not necessarily because of their alignment, but because they represent the same set of ideals. Soul crushing war. And a lot of time blind obedience to leaders coupled with backstabbing or being Kamille. That condemns you to a lower plane.
