What does the group needed? Good question.

Ariasderros-Dragon wizard that already sports quite a bit of BFC spells.

Muktidata-antropormhic wolf tank that shreds faces.

Concerned Ninja Citizen-maug god that seems focused on tanking as well (with an enphasis on being big), also picked up leadership for an elemental adept cohort that has its own companion and seems to have a bunch of BFC as well.

sirpercival- unfinished sage, that by the looks of it is shaping to becoming another BFC guy.

So I would say the BFC part is already pretty well covered by the current players, so you could be a random whateverness.

My tank is also the BFC kind of tank. AoOs + Large and In Charge(Standstill effect) + 20ft reach + free bullrushes make it very difficult to close with. It's pretty much a "protect the squishies" kind of set up.

So, yeah, BFC is well represented. Of course, if we end up fighting armies, which seems like a possibility, we may be able to benefit from a near infinite amount of BFC.

I'm having Alan take the Armbolt evolve to have a ranged weapon.  1d8 acid since acid tends to be the least resisted and most useful.

Not yet sure about which modules and attachments will be his standard though.  Once I get things more organized and figured out I'll have a better idea.

Don't forget about my variable breath. And the fact that Osle deliberately didn't include a cooldown. So HDd4 damage in a burst of whichever element I like. Every round. Evokers can go cry in the corner.

While Melchior have some BFC stuff, mostly he's a spellshaper, which means ranged damage.  Also, what I can do on any given day depends on my element.

No cooldown? Have you considered Entangling Exhalation?

I think Dragonfire Adepts may be headed to that corner as well.

I was thinking about replacing Silent Spell with that, then not preparing Web, instead opting for an extra Blinding Colour Surge.
Think I should?

Hmm, machine mistress looks interesting but Ætherforge is still calling to me.  Decisions decisions.

While Ætherforge is very good at BFC, there are a lot of different things you can do.  Buffing, debuffing, utility, summoning...

Is there something specific you wanted to do with Silent Spell? If you don't have a combo in mind it's fairly situational. Entangled would be a fun condition to put on enemies. It would synergy well with my cohort since he's focusing on Sculpt Spellshape, which calls for reflex saves, and entangled hits dexterity.

Do you know what you'd do with the Machine Mistress as far as Nintendo connections?

While Ætherforge is very good at BFC, there are a lot of different things you can do.  Buffing, debuffing, utility, summoning...

Even blasting if that's what you want it to do. It's pretty good at being a caster with different flavor and that includes a fair chunk of versatility.

Aetherforges also qualify for some casting PrCs (ones with CL requirements or spell level requirements that don't specify arcane or divine.)

I noticed the other things Ætherforge can do, that's why it is calling to me.   :p

I have two basic ideas:

 - A koopa wizard (Ætherforge), I'd have to work with Oslecamo on the best way to make him a koopa.

 - A crazy mad scientist with robot companion like Megaman on steroids.

It has a cooldown. Of zero rounds.

Thanks for pointing that out. Aetherbeast astral construct at-will forging banned.

Nothing until later. It can be my 9th, or even 12th level feat.

Also, thanks to the metamagic reduction from Tome Dragon, all of my spells are prepared as stilled spells. And Eschew Materials. And Helping Hand is there to carry my spellbook (which acts as an additional focus for most spells). Basically, I can already cast in Mechanus Armour, wielding a Tower Shield, while grappled. I just don't have the money for all of that yet. To say nothing of the fact that I would have a land speed of 5ft in the armour.  :rolleyes

I realize there are more optimized ways to use that feature, but this seemed more natural.

Actually, that's a pretty cool way of utilizing the metamagic reduction feature.

For battles where there's plenty of room, Regideus would be up for being a mobile casting platform, which would help with movement issues. Pretty sure he's got the carrying capacity to not even notice the extra weight (str 30, gargantuan, I think his light load is around 4,000 lbs)

Too bad this isn't gestalt. I think you'd like the fact that I want to play an Abloeth // Extractor the Wind Fish's little brother.

In the "futuristic" planets, like the ones belonging to the galactic federation, combat androids of diferent kinds have been a relatively common sight for quite some time now. Being able to make such combat androids of superior power/AI/versatility is considered an art, and a well paid one at that. More details later, gotta go now.
