    I have no idea on where is AviatorPenguin, I've tried to send him a PM and so far no answer, he is not interested in the game anymore. so I am thinking of introducing this rule from unearthed arcana: Gestalt Character

    let me know what are your thought about it.

    I was thinking about the following combinations :

    Gunnar: Factotum / Fighter (or Ranger)
    Thelia: Cleric / Paladin (Freedom)
    Sarah: Wizard / Monk
    Jeremi: Bard / Barbarian.

    You will gain the first level in the selected class but just

    but of course, you have the last words about it.

    I was going to plan to use a prestige class on later levels. Plus I don't think that Wizard/Monk won't suit her because of restricted alignment.

    Not a big fan of gestalt, to be honest. I'd do it, of course, if that's what the party feels is the best.

    Either way, I don't think turning gestalt (Fighter no less) will give much more fighting power to my character, because of his abilities distribution. I think Gunnar will be a lot better at fighting at 3rd level anyway, due to the Knowledge Devotion feat, that I intend to pick.

    I believe Duskblade is a way better class for Gunnar, which I thought about multiclassing when the game was at 1st level. Even Swashbuckler, which at 3rd level would add Int modifier to damage. Those would be better classes for him either multiclassing or gestalting.

    I think we could try keeping it as it is, but it's your call, DM. If we're really going with gestalt and limited to the core books classes, I guess Fighter or Ranger will be the better choices to add to the fighting part. But maybe Wizard could be better (he has 16 Int after all), so he could do some self-buffing, that would certainly add more, as gestalting in Fighter or Ranger will only give him a couple of Hit Points and +1 to attack and a feat or something.

    I believe Gunnar didn't use his whole fighting potential yet, as I was stingy with my Inspiration Points in the first combat encounter and fell to a Will Save attack in the second (which gestalting in Fighter or Ranger won't solve, but Wizard or Duskblade would). The third encounter, Gunnar almost one-hit-killed the bug in the first attack. I think he can deal a decent amount of damage already when he hits, adding his Int modifier by spending Inspiration Points.

    Well, that was my two copper pieces.

    Cheers.

    I've never done gestalt. I've seen it announced on the site, but I'm not sure what it is (a link to some explanation would be helpful here).
    and also, you mentioned palladin (freedom). Is that a paladin subclass or something?

    I had actually planned on going loremaster, so not full combat at all. Of course, that wouldn't mean I couldn't do some changes, but I'm not a frontline fighter. Not with my stats (str 10, con 9). I might have to swap my quarterstaff for some other weapon and also add a shield for more AC, but that would mean I have no further use of my two-weapon figthing feat. I had also planned on getting knowledge devotion as feat at one point, as for a loremaster it's simply a way to get her into combat more efficiently.

    I'm not sure what you have planned in the future, but now we're more finesse than pure combat.

    And also, if we gain levels, I'm quite good at optimizing spells (especially as soon as I start getting the good divinations so I can know what's comming) to boost the others.

    i understand that gestalt character might not be a good idea, in alternative we can do the following :

    1. Lower the difficulties of your encounters;
    2. My NPC Raziel will become more active and can fullfill the combat role in your group.

    let me know which one you prefer.

    Paladin of Freedom is a variant of Paladin. Also I was going to use the Master Specialist as a prestige class in future levels. Plus Sarah is also very optimized and she's more for buffing and debuffing spells than full blown combat.

    I don't mind either way, although I have a slight preference for 1, for no other reason as to avoid the NPC to overshadow the PCs. And 1 is easier to adjust back if, after a few levels, we start getting items for instance that boost our stats so we gain more combat power (or more spells).

    I prefer option 2. Also I always wanted to try gestalt which I'm open to.

    I'm of a similar mind.

    I would even go further, with Gunnar in mind (let me be clear that I'm talking exclusively about my character here). We can try the game as it is, or as close as possible. If someone is in greater danger of dying, it's the guy in the frontline, that being Gunnar. As much as I like him (and I do like him a lot), I don't mind if my character dies in a fair encounter. If that happens, I can try a new character, more able to withstand the rigors of battle at the frontline.

    I think a party must deal with the problems they face in a creative manner. We formed a party with no frontliner. We should have to deal with it. If Gunnar dies fighting, I can try a proper warrior.

    But just to reiterate, I'm gambling with my character's life, not the others'. If the DM believes a TPK is likely, I'm open to any of the alternatives.

    Cheers.

    I like this party very much, I will lower the encounter level, and taking into account that you don't have a specialized fighter. I like to speak openly and at this point, I don't think I will look for other players anymore except if you recommend a player.

    Well I do have a suggestion of fighter. You can use one of my characters that I made and you can NPC the character without going through the hassle of finding another player if you want, DM.

    Well, as a matter of fact, I have a friend, that plays in my tabletop 3.5 game, who is interested in playing with a dwarf barbarian/fighter.

    This player only has experience in tabletop gaming and was not familiar with this forum (only with the OotS comic), let alone pbp gaming, but plays in my 3.5 campaign for almost three years now.

    Our native language is not English and that may be a challenge, but this friend even created a profile here in the site for this. The username is Mbarakaja.

    See what you think about it and let us know.

    Cheers.

    You can you my frontline fighter (actually a ranger) to NPC him. His name is Damok, Dragon Hunter. You can do whatever you want with him.

    Not only there's interest, but the character sheet is in construction, with my help.

    Mbarakaja's account in this forum was created, as I understand, to present a character last time you opened submission, but you disclosed Penguin's submission before my attempt at convincing was 100% done.

    In that regard, how do you see this character joining? Right now or after some later point in the story? Equipment will be purchased with 1.000gp, like in our character's last shopping spree?

    May I send a link to this thread so Mbarakaja can join the discussion with no intermediation or do you prefer a Private Message?

    Cheers.

    I hope he can make the commitment and effort to stay playing the game. I know that some players come and go if the game lost interest but try to participate the game at least. :annoyed But just in case if he doesn't want to play. My Damok, Dragon Hunter character is still on the table if you're interested NPC him.

    Apologies for not giving a warning beforehand, but I'll be pretty much missing for a couple more days.

    The current plan is my preferred option, though, so that's good.

    Hi players!
    I'm Mbarakaja and I'm going to play with a dwarf character who's a multiclass fighter/barbarian. His name is Morgran and he's 60 years old, he was from Mirabar, but he's on the road for a while, looking for his family history. he was raised by a dwarf family, servants in the temple of Haela Brightaxe (dwarf goddess of war and luck). So he left the house to try to find the cleric of Uthgardt who handed him over to his tutors. He will now participate in the tournament to try to gather information and get the favor of the battle lord
    Morgran is a bit grumpy, but has a good heart. He has brown hair and beard, which he keeps trimmed. He has fair skin and green eyes, 1.40m tall and boasts a MW Dwarven waraxe and wooden shield that he always keeps in good condition, as well as his steel breastplate.
    So this is morgran and we hope to join forces with the team to achieve our goals.

    Hello Mbarakaja. Nice to meet you. I hope you'll enjoy our game. Because we lost a few people during the game. Also I play as Sarah Diamond, a Neutral Good Female Lesser Drow Wizard. Also please don't drop out of the game and try to participate as much as possible.
