I assume that all Androids are Chobits given the lack of mecha?  I'm perfectly fine with that, I'm thinking about going Chobit if not just because it would make sense.
Not entirely sure how that makes sense.

Because my character has nothing to do with Mecha and Chobits get rid of the racial ability related to Mecha.

Oh I made the changes hours ago sorry xD

Oh wait shoot no I didn't lol. I remembered right now I forgot my 2 empty savage slots.

EDIT: Fixed it! Link is still like a page back.

Does Fast Healing from multiple Savage abilities stack?
Does Fast Healing from Savage stack with Fast Healing from other sources?
That actually determines whether I change Monster of Legend's Fast Healing out for something else. -_-'


Nevermind just switching it for Spell Turning.

https://www.myth-weavers.com/sheet.html#id=1844808

You still have fast healing although it seems to come from Ancient skills.

Ayway you're still a bit too tough, you're two-rounding a fire giant with just lots of unarmed (with rend)/natural attacks hitting on a 1+ and although they can now realistically hurt your character, it would still take some six rounds of a Fire Giant fullattacking to drop you, and even if you stand between two fire giants so they get a flanking bonus and just full attack each other, chances are that you'll win that damage race. Again, before any maneuvers are used. May I suggest you swap some tanky Ancient skills like  Vanguard or Natural Insight for more utility stuff like Traveling or Blink Cut or Personal Book?

Mmm, I really wanted Natural Insight mostly for the party buffs/healing aspect of it -_-'  It also helps good ol' drunken tavern brawls last longer!
I'll switch Vanguard out for Personal Book, I really was considering that one anyways.

Admittedly, none of my maneuvers allow me to attack more than twice in a round so using a maneuver would also really cut down my DPR.

Dropped Yasha's Speed for Blink Cut, albeit its restriction of needing to not be damaged in the previous round seems like it'd be difficult to use to get out of danger. It's great for getting into danger though, haha.

I switched Holy Blessing for Personal Book 3 as well to cut back on the HP & Resistances but also to cut back on my self-healing. +25% does end up being a lot.

Edit: If I really must I guess I could drop Natural Insight for something.....might go for Shadowing over Traveler though. I think it's kinda funny that I have a super slow land speed because drunken fighter. But a really high fly speed because drunken driver.  :p

Would things be better if I just drop Savage and, like, I dunno, I'm a dragon so can I buy Hoard for free and do that? Equipment is just such a hassle!

Hey Osle, in addition to my previous question, I have another. If I wanted to take noble crab: hermit crab and use this http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20060704a&page=3 as the shell - would that work? It says it has +18 natural armour, so would I gain all that as the shell?

Would it also be an acceptable opponent to have beaten? I would be taking this at level 5, and this is CR 6, which is totally doable with a party of level 5s. I'd also be stuck at large unless I wanted to lose the big armour bonus since that monster seems to be specified at only large.

Uh, Os?  I'm concerned that my character might be more powerful than you want after your conversations with ketaro.

Character Sheet is here.

With my built in weapon I currently get a +15 to hit (+10 on second attack in a full attack) and do 6d6 damage (And there's no real reason for me to not take Rapid Shot).  My AC is 18 naked so it'll be in the mid-twenties when I get gear.

I have no feats, no gear, and no Trick Shots from Sniper which will make me better.  Please take a look at my character and make sure that you're okay with the power level that this is going towards.

I'm... rather glad I have pretty poor HP given that just my class skeleton sticks me with "normal" AC in the 30s. Hit me and I fold easily, but it's hard to hit.

Also why I am completely forgoing equipment.

Hmmm kinda already have two 5 player parties that are finishing their sheets. One of them already expressed they would like to stay at 5 players, let me consult with the other what they would think of a 6 player party.

Could you finish a sheet by this weekend?

Pretty easily. Have a few old ideas to sift through but I'm fine sitting it out if you're full.

The party members for team Mexilhoeira have spoken and they're ok with a 6th player so feel free to go ahead and make that character sheet.

Oh and before I forget it, you need to test your character against a bunch of encounters to make sure you're not too stronk/weak:

A Fire Giant.
A Young adult Blue Dragon (ignore the dragon's spells).
A Bebilith.
A Vrock (notice it has at-will mirror image and telekinesis to fling stuff from 880 feet away).
A pair of Mind Flayers.
An evil 10th level cleric with a big pile of 1HD human skeletons tagging along.
6 Trolls.
A lot of Shadows.

Your character need to beat at least 4 of those battles, but if you double the number of enemies and still win over half of them then your character needs to be toned down a bit.

I've actually thought about it a good deal and I'm going to go ahead and sit this one out. Much as I'd enjoy it, I know how rough it can be to tack someone on at the last moment.

Don't tempt me about starting a new campaign!

However Vladeshi did go silent after the campaign started, so there is an opening in team Bonnie if you'll take it.

My team is also pretty quiet lately, I'm not sure if most of them are even present in the current scene or if they stayed around to ogle the robots.
