Welcome to the forums!

I think the Texas Chainsaw Christmas Tree Massacre has already been decided on :P

You may want to head to the Dice Rolling thread to roll your ability scores first (instructions here), unless you are already dead-set on point-buy.

Well, anything but the fey one seems a bit weird for a possibly-teleporting mystical assassin type. Not sure how much the consorting has stopped...

Or how good aligned something that inhuman is in this sort of setting... :p

As a Swordsage//Ninja you might also hail from the Jade Islands, and have consorted with their flavour of yokai "fey". Or be a native Krevbornite and have learned your invisibility tricks from your fey friends.

Either would be a terrific fit in the setting.

And yes, fey in Krevborna are not nice. Maybe not Evil as per the alignment, but at least dubious.

Faerie wives and their ilk like to recur across cultures, too. It's a useful motif.

Definitely more fun than an alcoholic or... non-murder-intervener.

I'm not sure I have it in me to ever play the latter idea as an adventurer without goint right into full Evil "I don't care"

Read moar Spiderman :P That is pretty much his origin story.

Some may turn to evil on such an occasion, others go "Something something great power great responsibility".

Yes, but with reluctance and a drive to avoid future death. Generally witnessing a crime you didn't stop does not drive you to take up a career involving routine murder. :P

A couple of questions:
1. Would I be able to use PsyWar's Soulbound Weapon ACF to qualify for Soulbow?
2. Given no multiclassing restrictions, am I able to take Tashalatora without Monastic Training?

Hmm.
11/11/11/14/14/8, with spares 8/8/11. Dammit, looks like I'm going Point-buy. How many points?

(I have no intent to have a dark secret of any kind)

(Plus, Tier-assessment on that Maug and/or on RHD and LA for going the "Just take regular maug as one side of the gestalt?" Current thinking puts me at doing that +TOB and Paladin, maybe? Are we using the morality bit of being a paladin?)

1. Would I be able to use PsyWar's Soulbound Weapon ACF to qualify for Soulbow?
Soulbow calls very specifically for the Throw Mind Blade feature, which is tied to Soulknife 2 (and not covered by any PW level or ACF).
Given that Soulknife is Tier 5 (which can be paired with Psychic Warrior (T3) under my Partial Gestalt rules), you should yet have little trouble qualifying.

2. Given no multiclassing restrictions, am I able to take Tashalatora without Monastic Training?
Yes, Monastic Training would be superfluous. You can go straight to Tashalatora without feat tax.

I see no Maug in your links below, so I have no idea.

Paladin CoC is heavily relaxed under my house rules:
  • Paladins can deviate by one category from their default alignment, like Clerics. Violations of their Code of Conduct only matter if they are severe and/or regular enough to move their alignment outside of this space.

Ah, actually I was just reminded of the Soulknife PrC from Dark Sun. Would you allow it in place of the regular Soulknife?

Have no access to any version of it, so mind to link me to one or PM the class write-up?

Seems fine to me, and also around Tier 5. (Good BAB is an upgrade to Soulknife, but with Psychic Strike still eating Full Attacks through move actions unless radical counter-measures are taken it does not really move it up a tier.)

The other difference is that the total enhancement of mind blade increase every 2 levels instead of every 4.

Hm. Are we applying some sort of fix/cleaning up to Unarmed Swordsage so it actually does what it's meant to? IIRC, the book version somewhat fails at the unarmed part (I think also unarmoured, but that shouldn't stack with CA Ninja's AC bonus anyway).

Humbly requesting a half beast youkaiskin with Dream Battle and Fate of 60 years. Fluff would be a werewolf of sorts that seeks to redeem her "sin" by seeking and punishing other sinners in the name of the one true god. There was mentioned an organization of "good" werewolves seeking redemption right?

EDIT: And if approved, what could I gestalt with?
