so far it looks like sm.

my hold up at is the eternal spell level vs nifty thing debate.

Losing one spell casting level can be acceptable, especially in summoning builds which tend to lose one got malconvoker which is well worth it.

was trying to shy away from the necro :p

the spell level thing boils down to starting at 5th level, loose a level and drop back to 2nd level spells.

once i think Necro, im drooling over spell stitched necrop, and i start to loose focus in all the evil bits.

im leaning toward a divine summoner.

hopefully throwing pokemon around wont get boring  :eh 

 :P
Ever tried an early-entry Master of Shrouds? At this level, it could be nasty. :P They're probably better as a BBEG/solo character, though. Doing ability damage doesn't synergize well with other people doing hit point damage.

the dark side gets all the nice toys  :bigeyes

its my understanding that a Shadow is devastating at our starting level.

Getting swarmed by them certainly is, and a huge number of NPCs and monsters have absolutely no defense against them...

I'm playing in another game with a spellthief/wizard and I'm really worried the DM is getting ready to do a spawnpocalypse on us... We saw some shadows early in the game (just over a week ago in game time), and let them get away and now there are reports of a whole bunch of attacks in the slums of the city... and my character has a strength of 7... :P

That wasn't the original plan, but if the parties want to be split up along those lines it's possible. I'd been planning on mixing everyone together to try and balance the parties out.

Altpersona: I've got no problem with you using necro, but the rest of your party would need to okay it, as that will significantly change the npc reactions to the group. Let me work out parties real quick.

http://alcyius.com/dndtools/spells/domains/summoning/index.html

Defenders of the Faith page 80

doing the diligence, it's not kosher as desired.

Summoning is a 'Prestige Domain', requires a type of prestige class that grants access to specialty domains.

so, it is not in line w/ the basic domains and over all it looks like it cant be easily picked up till late mid game.


bummer.

Yeah, I just looked it over, earliest I can figure would be level 10, about the time we will be ending.

Are you sure about sticking the paladin and the assassin trio in the same party?

Well, the dragonborn champion of justice could become Maria's new master, directing her to use her assassination cooking abilities for good. Some pretty good redemption roleplay potential.  :p

Just my input. I would have better synergy with the paladin than with the summoner.
The following explanation has been removed due to time constraints, character limits on posts, and the DC 30 Spellcraft checks to understand large portions of it.
