Yeah, that was a joke. I'm not actually taking any maneuvers from the second discipline anyway so it doesn't really matter what it is.

And now here's my current progress, so it won't be at the bottom of a page for once.

Mostly just need feats at this point.

Two Monster of Legend Mecha Pilots with Gifted For War.

Did they accidentally end a war or something? :lmao

Or they led opposite sides of a war that ended in a stalemate? :)
Cause they're both so gifted!

This seems very interesting  :)

But judging by the monsters Oslecamo makes and the statement that it will be high powered... I am going to just sit on the sidelines and eat popcorn. I mean, I have enough trouble getting the rules straight in my head (too much home brew at too young an age, not enough exposure to books) and not sucking at normal games :P  Let's not even think about the suck that could happen in the higher end of the spectrum.
Do you know how long someone who is as sarcastic as I am would last in prison? Suuuuuuch a long time.

I'm gifted at tossing nuclear fire at things. No way have I been leading anything. :p

Maybe I dropkicked a highly important mecha into a volcano or something. XD

Really hope we get a few more setting details, I'm not sure how to do this in a vacuum. @_@

Even better, my character is gifted for war but never attacks anyone.

Figure out how that one works.

Ah, time to change my Upgrades around, then, since I'm not getting much mileage out of extra basic attacks.

Extra for 2 x Arsenal Space it is, then. Need to get an awesome cape to chuck on this. :lmao

Odd that you can gain Reactor but not Nanomachines from Arsenal stuff.
More because the Arsenal was first designed for Real Robots, and well, self-regeneration isn't a very Real Robotish thing to do.

SorO_Lost:You can pick either easy or practical metamagic, not both.

Loving the fluff development BTW. :D
Drat.

Really really wanted Persisted Fire Shield. Partial Wands ok?
No to partial wands as well, altough you may find them as loot.

Why not quickened Fire Shield?

Would the Plain History maneuver Ambition Crisis Conquest count as an attack for the purposes of sancturary? How about Ambition Crisis Treason?

EDIT: Also, the Sacred Treasure Land stance. Is that an attack?
Yes to both Ambition Crisis, no to Sacred Treasure Land.

Still didn't time to get more setting details (need time to keep up with my other campaigns that suddenly saw bursts of activity).

However, by all means start throwing around some crazy ideas. I always believed D&D is about collaborative story-building, so if you want your characters to have started/ended wars on the past, I can work from that. There's even a precedent of sorts from the Phantasy Star games after all. :p

Wasn't there a Soulbow around here?
Guys, I'm building a ranged specialist focusing in mass destruction. But since this campaign is highly optimized, I need help building it. I'll put up the sheet once I'm done.

I'm feeling like I may want to piggy-back with some one, if they're cool with it, because I'm feeling very generic all of a sudden..... :-\. Like, I just don't know what to do about the situation of my character in this supposed world.

I just really am getting no real ideas over here, myself. Sorry.

Hmm... Mecha got damaged, had to resort to a spacesuit despite the absurdity of trying to move in space, dropkicked something into a star, thereby winning a major battle. Decapitation of the army and all. XD

Well, I have a spare feat I was going to use for Friend or Rival, if you want to be the target.

I was going about falling asleep and then I got hit with an idea.

Mind you I'm still going to sleep now, but when I wake up I will have one nice chunk of text of a backstory :D

Why not quickened Fire Shield?
Why not Loredrake?

*cough* I mean, for 7,500gp you get 3 Charges per day and if you expend 3 you get +4d6 to any Spell that deals Fire Damage. In effect I'd have a 5d6+13ish (avg 30.5) Fire Shield running. The combo has been sitting in my head for months and needs an outlet. I know it's not the best way to do things. Fireball is technically superior to Fire Shield even if only the latter has the ring. Proactive>Reactive. Plus a gun toting mech game and melee-only guard? Right... (kinda why the ring is integral).

But at least cost wise the -2 Metamagic reduction for Fire Shield would have opened up other avenues. Partial Wands as well (waithstrike, hunter's eye, and guidance of the avatar!). But same cost and for even weaker version? Nah. Heart of Fire is a better pick if I went that route any way.

Some book digging later. Wreath of Flames, 3rd level & Dragon Magic, it's not an onhit guard but does augment my attacked directly. +5d6 Fire on every attack with an additional 5d6 damage for anyone near me on my turn. Significantly more power, specially given my number of Natural Weapons (6 of them). Could be a pretty deadly offensive augmentation when Channeled as well. Need to drop it's Meta cost by -3. And it's not quite as theme appropriate. :(

Harald's character is the soulbow. He's also the Ship Captain now that Nytemare has pulled out so there's probably room for a ranged focused Mecha as well as the ranged focused battleship.

I still need feats.

Will take Leader as at least one of my pilot feats, possibly all of them.

What feats are good for a Divine caster off the cleric list who can't turn undead?

I volunteer this to be associated with the battleship.
I like this.
Though, I was thinking more about Invincible, or even re-using the same anthem dedicated to my cruiser Ex Cathedra in Rogue Trader : Crimson Dei.

Items are done, manoeuvers & upgrades as well. I'll write that tomorrow, with the background. I've also started working on a portrait of the character, as well as doodling the battleship herself.
Still thinking about her name.

At least let me volunteer mecha stuff. ;-;

I have horribly perverted logic, dragged in the effects of constant acceleration in the vacuum of space (as regards planetary distances) for the sake of story, and created a rubbish ending. :lmao

Can the Sacred Treasure Orb maneuver be used to provide the spell components for magic item crafting (those spells it can duplicate, of course)?
