Just realized a simple one.

You're a 17th-level cleric.

Die.

Become a ghost.

Cast True Resurrection on yourself.

Congratulations, you are now so awesome you died and brought yourself back to life and have one up on Jesus.

this isn't so much of a 'strange' one as much as the most badass bowman/ranger I can think to put together.

So, Tome Fighter to level 11.

You're human. Your feats are:

Point Blank Shot
Sniper
Blindfighting
Mage Slayer
Hordebreaker
Blitz
Danger Sense
Lightning Reflexes (sort of optional)
Subtle Cut
That Sharp-Eyed skill feat, for the lulz.

There's other feats that'd probably benefit archery (yes, I know, Hunter and Zen Archery), but, okay.

The idea is Mage Slayer + PBS lets you attack spell or SLA-using enemies for an AoO.

Hordebreaker gives the AoO's. You're an archer, so Dex is your main stat.

Subtle Cut makes for nice debuffs and effects.

Blitz doesn't specify melee for most of the benefits, so you could do your BAB in extra damage and get another d6. And getting a -2 penalty on your iterative shots.

PBS and Sniper both synergize quite well.

Blindfighting lets you know about things within a certain radius, Danger Sense gives some spot and initiative benefits.

Sharp-eyed to let you try to get their Touch AC if you can do a spot check...

----------------
So, yeah. Leaving out Greatbow shenanigans, that's 1d8 + 1d6 (Blitz) + 4 (enhancement bonus under Book of Gears Rules) + 11 (Blitz) + 1 (Subtle Cut) + 3 (Point blank shot within 60 feet with Sniper) + And applicable strength bonus for a composite bow.

And your attacks having the Wounding property.

And you're getting AoO's for on anything that tried to cast a spell or use an SLA. And it's considered ongoing damage. And you're doing...how much?

1d8 + 1d6 + 19, not counting strength and really going for broke on other dumpter-diving to push hit, damage, and effects bigger.

Yeah.

This is a character I'm actually looking at playing next week:

Brd1/Pal3 (on trajectory to take levels of Suel Arcanamach, Sentinel of Bharrai, and Sublime Chord)

Skills of note:
-Craft (Cooking)
-Craft (Printmaking/Bookbinding)
-Craft (Illumination)
-Perform (Skaldic Poetry)*
-Profession (Journalist)

*The Suloise seem to be a psuedo-nordic culture, so this is what made sense. Also handy to be able to perform without having to drop your weapon.

So... basically, a paladin that initially trained as a bard for a bit, before becoming a holy warrior, who likes to cook, and supplements the opposing of more overt evils with sword and shield by opposing the more subtle evils with pen and printing press. Every new town he enters, he will look around, gathering information of troubles of the local peasantry, along with any signs of corruption or malfeasance by the local government, and write a tabloid with exposes and health information, and quietly distribute it.

Oh, he also worships a celestial bear wizard, and has a bear themed spiked gauntlet that is subject to the Ancestral Relic feat, and is an amateur archaeologist from the Indiana Jones school of archaeology.

HAH. I like that.

I just went back over the Bowman thing for Level 6. +18 to hit at level 6 on things within 60 feet. The SRD enemies at that level have an AC range of 16-22. And damage turns into d8 + 12 + d6. I'd forgotten some bits in my above calculations.

Say it with me now. Dayum.

Here's one:

A friend made a joke about how they'd like to see an Angry Paladin.

Something like an Angry Marine, but a D&D Paladin.

So I ended up diving through and found a whole bunch of feats related to grappling and comically overwhelming enemies, and put them together to see what happens at level 20.

Stat Block is still coming, but as you might imagine, when I took absolutely -everything- together, I came up with a character who counts as at least Gargantuan Size for Grappling.

And has his Str mod doubled for melee damage. And mostly fights barehanded, by grabbing enemies and beating the shit out of every other enemy until they're dead, then beating the wielding foe against the wall, the floor, the tables, etc, until they're dead. Thanks to stuff like Foe Wielder and Hurl Opponent and Juggernaut and Brutal Grappling.

Fluff:
--------------------
Saint Iratus was a 8th-Century Paladin who gained divine recognition for his merciful defeat of the Kiron the Tyrant-King of Kroll. History tells us he had Dark King Kiron in a headlock, and was making passable progress towards unscrewing Kiron's head, while delivering a eloquent catalog of the Dark King's lifetime of sowing evil, hatred, and misery, and was screaming "REAP THE WHIRLWIND FUCKSTAIN!" when Sharptooth, his barbarian companion, persuaded him to relent and spare Kiron's life. Kiron later reformed, and joined a monastery which had a vow of silence and also a prohibition against nodding or moving the head.

For his great-hearted compassion and temperance, Iratus was visited by angels in his dreams, and went on a holy journey to Mount Celestia. There, he got permission to cut a golden oak from the high reaches, and fashioned the oak tree into a gorgeous, solid table.

Then he carried the table on his back, to the court of a Balor and chokeslammed the Balor through the table. The table shattered and riddled the Balor with holy splinters. The battle went precipitously downhill for the Balor from there.

Afterwards, Iratus gathered up the pieces, proclaiming he was going to "MAKE SOME FUCKING SHIVS OUT OF THIS TABLE, BECAUSE THAT BALOR CAUGHT ON WHITE FIRE WHEN HE HIT THE WOOD AND I WANT TO SEE THAT SHIT AGAIN!"

He made good on his word, whittling rough daggers and, one on occasion, a wooden sword, out of it, and legend tells that a whole table leg survived intact, and that this was wielded by Saint Iratus as a greatclub to terrific effect in later battles.

After his eventual death, the mourners found his workroom was covered in splinters of the Golden Table, left behind as he whittled out weapons, and they gathered up the holy oak and kept them safe. Soon, Iratus's students and disciples formally declared themselves the Order of Saint Iratus, and the splinters were given out as recognition of great deeds. They also dedicated themselves to Iratus' philosophy of battle and life in general, which ran as such:

1) PUT THAT ARMOR ON AND START RUNNING, YOU HANDFUCKERS. I SPREAD FLUFFY BUTTERY-SMOOTH GIRLY-MAN MUSCLE LIKE THAT ON MY TOAST FOR BREAKFAST!

2) WHO THE FUCK SPENDS THEIR TIME PRACTICING THE NINE-CRESCENT WATER MOON STRIKE OF FLUFFY BUNNY BULLSHIT? JUST BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF THEM! IT WORKS FOR ME!

3) PRACTICE YOUR FUCKING MAGIC, DIMCOCK! THAT SHIT IS FUCKING AWESOME!

4) BE COOL TO THE POOR, THE SICK, THE ELDERLY, AND THE LADIES! UNLESS THEY'RE EVIL, THEN KILL SOME OF THEM SO HARD EVERYONE ELSE STRAIGHTENS THEIR SHIT UP!

As might be gathered, the Iratians pride themselves on their physical strength, and take direct approach to combat, augmented by choice spells and heavy armor; they often emulate Saint Iratus himself by focusing on grappling. They are also generous to the common man (and polite to the ladies), while being very vocal and demonstrative in their destruction of evil.


Iratus was canonized after his miraculous appearance to a group of downhearted adventurers, who were ready to cease fighting against governmental corruption in a lawless city, some fifty years after his death. Records say he shouted at them for twenty minutes, in profanity that made some observing knackermen vomit, then marched the party to a local gang leader's office and kicked the gang leader in the testicles so hard they flew out his mouth, then gave some money to a street urchin for his sick grandmother and proclaimed "DO IT LIKE THAT FUCKERS. IF THE LAWS ARE SERVING EVIL THEY'RE FUCKING BAD LAWS AND YOU SHOULD KILL THEM TOO! DON'T MAKE ME COME BACK DOWN HERE AND REPEAT MYSELF." and disappeared while he ranted about the obviousness of his approach.

Well, I haven't got the inclination to make it look pretty, but here we go:

Iratus has two feats off the D&D Wiki. Natural Heavyweight and Unarmed Attack.

His gear would probably be better at level 20, but I don't have the patience to wank over how many Major Items he'd have versus Moderate items, and I could probably go through the numbers again and make sure all the feats are reflected--but the basic idea's there.

Natural Heavyweight eventually gives 10x Carrying Capacity. When a character's packing 35 Str, that becomes quite huge.

Combat is "Hit spells, rush in, beat the shit out of them with whatever seems best at the time." That lead spell is often Righteous Might, which increases strength, doubles carrying capacity, etc. Brutal Grappling gives him a Constrict attack. Possibly he can hold down a whole ton of people at once and constrict them all at once. Or grather them all up and throw them at the same time. Or get a human chain going through Foe Wielder.

Another tactic is using Foe Wielder to beat someone to death by attacking the floors/walls/etc.

Not so much a class combination as a character concept borne out of a tumblr post

Background: Royalty of a Fallen Nation
Class: Druid (or Ranger works too)
Other: Be a young girl
Bonus: Animal Affinity skill feat, Child Necromancer

Basically you are the quintessential storybook princess, biding her time to ascend to her rightful throne with the aid of her woodland friends.

Animal Affinity just makes you more awesome at dealing with your "woodland friends" (read: Bears), and Child Necromancer is an interesting case, where it mechanically makes your character a child, and druids actually easily qualify for it with their massive spell lists, and it makes your save or sucks more potent.

Hchirkamk

"Let's get dangerous"

N Tiefling Thief-Acrobat 4

Hchirkamk can trace his ancestry to a rogue vrock which became a hunter of other fiends. Hchirkamk himself focuses on more material evils, and at least pretends to be doing it for the good of society, but he also really enjoys beating evil's face in and running around rooftops at night.

Hchirkamk carries a heavy repeating crossbow that has been modified for grappling, as well as modified with a closed barrel, a large cover over the bolt slot, and can cast the following spells as spell-like abilities-
  • launch on anything that fits in the barrel (which has a 3" opening. Objects may protrude from the front).
  • Stinking Cloud
  • Fog Cloud


I will probably be using Hchirkamk in my campaign at some point, and would love to play him in a campaign sometime.

Where did you get the name Hchirkamk? Does it have any meaning or history?
