Now I have to pick a race...

I wish there were more LA: 0 construct races.

Honestly I've got enough ground work laid I could throw up a sheet this weekend, just been so busy with the recent storms and such my creative juices are running low.

Warforged is a nice Rance Nashork. Wand-Sheath and the Arm-Crossbow are function arm cannons. They are a bit more expensive than they should be, however the WF Component section does state any magic item can come in Component form...
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Here are a couple of LA +0 constructs I made way back. Let me know if you use any of them and I'll port them over to minmax.

Living Astral Construct - Probably needs a bit of rebalancing, if only because not all of the astral construct abilities are as appropriate on a player as on a summoned monster.

Wand-sheath won't help at all, no spellcasting or UMD, and none of the Warforged components really call to me for the Machine Mistress class.  Warforged is a nice race, just not for this IMO.

However, I forgot the homebrew side of things.  Neither of your links are exactly what I'm looking for Garryl, but they've given me some ideas about places to look.  Thanks!


Edit: No luck with the homebrew, and I don't think I want another Warforged (I'm already playing two in currently running PbP games).  Oh well, I don't need to be a construct so it isn't a big deal.

Well, if the arm cannon nature of Mega Man is still something desired. A Custom Legacy Bracer can obtain an At-Will CL10 Scorching Ray using three Least Slots.

Actually "Mega Man" is my Machine Minion, I just wanted to be a robot too for the flavor.  He'll get his arm cannons from my class abilities.  :p

The features of Machine Mistress turn you into a construct. You don't need to have a construct race to have robot flavor.

Yeah, I'll be Dr. Somebody or another.  Names are at the end of the to do list though.   :P

Or I could already be a construct and have buttloads of extra hitpoints.   :p

Like I said, it isn't a big deal, I just liked the flavor of a robot making more robots.

I've just been reading trough the megaman wiki, and I kid you not, they have robots making humans on top of robots making more robots and somebody making something called "carbons" and... Damn, the megaman storyline sure got complex from my gameboy days of  "Dr.Wily made 8 new  killer bots  with themes to conquer the world, go stop him with just this plasma cannon arm!".

Wow, yeah, all of that is news to me.  I just remember the oldschool megaman.

Imagine how I feel in the other game. I liked Kirby. The first one. The only one I've played. You float, you shoot blasts of air, and you suck stuff up to hit harder. Now there's copy-stuff. Likewise, I played LoZelda, LoZelda 2, and Links Awakening. At least I'm playing a character who is clueless about everything that is going on, so I don't have any problems pulling that off.

Assuming we go Fire Emblem, I'm going to be very glad my character just popped through a portal and thus has no idea WTF is going on in this strange new land (because I have no idea about anything regarding Fire Emblem that cannot be learned from playing Super Smash Brothers.)

On the other hand, I'm playing a Pokemon and I'm reasonably well versed in the fluff of Pokemon (up through Fire Red and Leaf Green, at least) so that should be ok.

Oh, I'm reading that. And a Wiki here or there. But things like, say, a boy with a mask, I know nothing about. It could have been something great. Could have been a trap. I don't know. Neither does Kurt. So it all work out.

I'm reading it, certainly, but I understand there's huge amounts of Fire Emblem backstory that I'm not familiar with. I mean, beyond humans, Manakete and Laguz I couldn't tell you what races live in Elibe.

I have pretty much no knowledge of FE despite owning a game because my OCD got the better of me and I got frustrated when one of my units got knocked out.  At least Metroid came naturally to me and lets me be OCD about picking everything up without being unduly challenging.

Edit:  3000th post.  lol

I'm of course still working on the character.  Mostly it's just feats, equipment, and modules to decide on at this point.

Okay, I'm officially bowing out (for real this time).  Machine Mistress isn't doing it for me and nothing else I can come up with is appropriate.
