Tecnically there's still 5 players for the spin-off, but only 2 of them have their sheets actually finished. One more complete character and I could start it up, with delayed players joining later when they're ready.

The two are me and Arias?

Muktidata's sheet looks done except for background and a few details (needs to calculate HP and such.) Maybe someone give him a poke?

But if Flay has an idea and can toss something up, that'd be cool too.

Yeah, I could use some help picking feats for Melchior...  :lol

What are you going for as far as favored circle, formula, tactics etc?

Spellshape Focus is usually worth it. Extra dice of damage on your attacks are hard to come by.

I like the metashaping feats because you'll rarely have enough formulae of your highest level to just use those. That's doubly true for a Sage because of the way they know formulae. My go to metashaping feat tends to be Sculpt Spellshape but I think you said you weren't going heavy area focus, so Heighten might be a better call. A heightened 2nd lv formula would do as much extra damage as a 4th lv and have the same save DC.

Extend Formula could be good for the lower level minor formulae with beneficial effects.

I keep going back and forth among Astral Essence, Devouring Shadow, and Eternal Moment.  That's part of the problem...

Phenomenal suggestions.  Here's my set, how's it look?

1st - Varied Awakening, Sculpt SpellshapeF, Zen ArcheryF
2nd - Heighten FormulaB
3rd - Spellshape Focus
6th - Precise Shaper
8th - Shaper's StrideB

Flaw - Noncombatant
Flaw - Vulnerable

Looks solid to me. Didn't realize you could use Zen Archery with Spellshape Attacks but it's obvious now you mention it.

Huh, that's not that many, considering how many you were originally thinking (what with the two teams thing).

So... umm... How would you feel about someone having two characters?

Because I have 3 different ideas for LoZ-based characters.

4-6 players is the ideal size for a party, so the spin-off will simply advance with a single group.

I'm fine with you running two characters simultaneously, as long as you don't mind the logistics and nobody else has a problem with it.

Heck, if you have ideas for 3 characters, I wouldn't even mind you making your personal mini-party for the second team. Kinda of a "solo" campaign, but you get to run 3 PCs instead of just one. :p

Oooh, don't say that people can run multiple characters! I'll end up with a legion.

Seriously, I have no problem with Arias doing that if he likes and I might do it myself (hopefully in moderation.)

That actually puts a new spin on what I came here to say: New concept idea for anyone who wants one, F Zero racer or Starfox universe fighter pilot with a Spelljammer cohort (or have the ship be the primary character and the pilot be the cohort.)

What the three ideas are:

(click to show/hide)

(click to show/hide)

Thoughts? I actually wouldn't really want to have a party on my own. That said, with the eagles Ideal Cohort ability, and the existence of the Improved Cohort feat... Nothing stops me from running 2/3 as one entity.

If there aren't enough people for a second party (and I suspect there will be if we wait a little while) I would be happy to toss together a few builds and we could go halves on a party.

Well, I'm going to go ahead and try out building Veres and Fisk. Even if they don't see play here, I like them.

As far as waiting... this stuff goes slow anyway. Build. BUILD!!!

If we get a full party, I expect there will be tea and crumpets.

I can always make a character if needs be. Not like there is a lack of potential great character concepts within the realms of nintendo.

@ Osle
Do you approve of the weapon ability from here?

Do you approve of the feats from here? Specifically, Cunning Artifice, Cunning Master, and Tactical Recuperation.

What would be your opinion on the interaction between the eagles Ideal Cohort ability, and the benefit of the Improved Cohort feat? Because there actually is a way for me to have Leadership and Improved Cohort already on Fisk.

Weapon ability allowed, but the extra inspiration points only last 5 rounds, otherwise you could just grab something with regeneration and coup de grace them for an hour or so for thousands of inspiration points for your next battle.

Tactical Recuperation allowed. The other feats no. Neither anything from mindscapes.

Does that include the Extractor?

What about this one?

lucid dreaming does not exist. All instances of it in the extractor are replaced by the concentration skill.

Ideal Cohort and Improved cohort don't stack, point.

Wildheart ok, falling star is replaced by Solar Wind.
The Marshal ok, except for the sublime aura.
No to the fighter and swashbuckler.

So, Scaleshaper was considered to represent a Dragon Tribe Laguz. What would be a good representation of other Laguz? Beast Tribe, for instance?

How about Morphling?
