Trying to build a Revenant Blade.
« on: February 19, 2019, 09:37:40 AM »
Just got back into gaming and wanted to try out a Revenant Blade build. Catching up on all the new gaming info so I'm a touch behind. In searching for build examples, I have came across several posts that mentioned a Revenant Blade Handbook with sample builds. Every link I try goes to Wizard and no link to builds. Below I have listed what I'm hoping to achieve in my character. Will be starting at level 3 in our campaign. Would love help on where I could find info for my new character build.

Character:
Revenant Blade based off of Darth Maul and Oberyn Martell (the Viper)
Role play as a Noble with the highest training to become an Apex Predator
In a group that contains: Tank, Rogue, and Healer
Starting level will be 3

All suggestions, links, and information welcome. Been out of the loop for way too long and feel as if Im starting a new game.

Thanks again.

Yeah there's a lot of link rot.
And right now today, the bg-archive is down.
This  :
https://web.archive.org/web/20100404040611/http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75882/19872270/The_Revenant_Blade_Handbook
... is the JanusJones Revenant handbook.

Chances are the Ranger 2 / Fighter 2 / Pounce Barb 1
is as good a start as any.  Darth Maul doesn't have
all that many lines in the movies, though angry facing
Daenerys at the end of Han Solo, counts as roleplaying.
(cough)

What classes are the Tank , Rogue + Healer ?

thanks for the link. it gives me a resource to build my character. wanting to make sure i have the structure to get the most out of my build. so any suggestions and outlines of how to build a very offensive character would be most helpful.

as for my team: elf/sharpshooting rogue, turtle/monk, human/cleric, orc/barbarian, and my elf/Revenant Blade.

What books do you have available ?

What do you mean by "Turtle" ?


Ranger makes a decent Scout (and there's a guide for that).
Ranger skills don't totally overlap with the Rogue's.
The rogue can do the face charisma stuff and the trapfinding.

Make sure the cleric doesn't do in-combat healing.
Deading things is better than something that can be put off a few rounds.
