    Default Please critique My Build (Samurai Kobold ) (pathfinder)

    I May have finally found a build but I'm afraid it may be a bit to weak (My group is far from Mix-maxers but i'd still think this build could use some help so it dose not slow my party down)

    I am going with a dragon Theme and so I chose Kobold (I don't think there is any more Dragon like races that are medium size) and also since Kobolds don't have a speed reduction it fit well with the archetype I chose (warrior poet) since its more Dex based

    I'll be starting around level 3 to 5 and so it may be while before i get any of the real good abilities of the class (We don't use Exp for level but achievements and such as to when we gain levels such as finishing a chapter in a game (all are games are home-brewed

    For this character I am picturing a seasoned warrior I don't dear go to old but maybe all most out of middle age (Seen his fair share of wars)

    I'd like to know how i am improve this build with out making it to strong so it fits with the rest of the part but dose not slow the rest of the party down.

    There are Options in the Race Builder to build draconic Races (just ignore the huge Cost for the Dragon Type, it assumes you use it to gain access to stuff like flying and SLA`s and Breathw eapons etc). Maybe evenr efluffing an orc (and say replacing ferrocity with natural Armor in form of scales) would work well.

    As for the pure mechanics: Its a reasonable build for a Kobold Fighter. As they are traditionally bad at things like that, your fear of being too weak is likely to be true, unless the rest of your Players builds similar Fluff over Mechanics" builds....

    Later: An atom walks into a bar an asks the bartender “Have you seen an electron? I left it in here last night.” The bartender says, “Are you sure?” The atom says, “I’m positive.”

    @ GrayDeath

    well I want to play a non-human Race sick and tired of playing humans

    and so I made a list of races , numbered them and roll and ended up landing on kobold

    the party i play with is usually under powered when it comes to combat and i am usually the Big damage dealer

    I could roll for another race but i have the trouble o switching characters to often and so i want to sick by this character and be more about the role-play / fluff but i want to have decent damage out put

    I plan to gran a keen katana when i can but i am unsure if my feats are ok or if there is away to get a big more damage out of this character

    There's the Wyvaran, it's a medium sized kobold/wyvern thing.
    Thought to be a fusion of kobolds and wyverns, wyvarans are often found leading kobold tribes, serving wyverns, or even dwelling among true dragons. Like wyverns, they are territorial creatures, but also have an acute sense of honor. Depending on how they are treated, wyvarans can become powerful allies or deadly enemies.

    Dragon Medium

    BASE SPEED 30ft


    +2 Dex, –2 Int, +2 Wis

    LANGUAGES draconic, common bonus (it doesn't actually say)


    Flight (30 ft., clumsy)
    Slapping tail
    Darkvision 60 ft.
    Low-light vision


    Everything else seems pretty okay, though your mwk katana should cost 325 not 300.
