Chaotic Neutral Sorcerer




8th Sep 2014, 12:19 AM

My first time playing a caster. While I was originally planning a pathfinder monk, my GM persuaded me to play a sorcerer (or well... what basically counted as one, since it was his homebrew class).

I planned that character so horribly... even though I started at level 5, I chose bad spells and the class itself involved so much math I was slowing the group down.

On the other hand, no one could claim I was overpowered like I learned the class actually was in a later game.

"binder"

i've never actually played one, but thats fine because this isnt a story XD
basically, i find it really hard to build a character that capitalizes on a binder's versatility. i always want to specialize...

as for an actual story, i once built a factotum that i was gonna abuse cunning strike with. so i made him an AMAZING stealthy character... unfortunately, i had no experience with that kind of character and just walked up to a giant. i managed to hit him for quite a bit! but he lived... and then another giant flanked me and killed me. i had maybe an hour of playing with this character. but now im better at it, though i still prefer frontliners to stealth mundanes.

One of the campaigns I'm currently in has given me a newfound appreciation for the skills of the frontline warriors. I'm playing a Halfling Rogue in a story revolving around a lot of combat situations. Tengil is, however, a merchant extra-ordinaire. He talks to people until they do his bidding.
If ever there was a skill he did not have, he'd learn soon enough.
And if the situation goes sticky... he sticks someone important in the back and dissappears.
As a Rogue, he can pretty much instakill any mook or minion in the surprise round, but when the actual combat starts... He'd better get out of dodge.

I usually don't play a Face. Sometimes I even go for characters with rather low Charisma and very gruff personalities. So going as a character who is Terrific at everything EXCEPT combat is... new

"Homebrewed Necrodruid"

A Leafblight Unicorn, is somewhat difficult to figure out when you're used to a Pegasus Rogue. Especially when a lot of the spells and such are homebrewed and made specifically for that character.

But really, a Druid who took Death and Decay, and can Animate Dead by Seeding a corpse from up to 50 ft away... Once I started to remember I actually had spells, I found out that my Fluttershy expy (she has a skeletal rabbit named Lelouche [It started as Lucifer, with the nickname Lucy, but then baby-speak named her Louchey, so her name changed about 40 seconds after I'd came up with it]) was actually extremely good at crowd control, what with her Wall of Thorns.

Combine it with the Paladin's Wall of Fire, and we had a great way to corner and kill this annoying mini-boss who thought running into a dead-end corridor would save him from us.

It was long ago, in a campaign when we where going lightly on the rule, when you know no one at the table is goig to mess the game you can do that.
So we ended up choosing whatever type of character we prefered, and personalised our character to be the as adpated as possible to our respectives playstyle.
We used to let the others play our characters in case of absence. had no idea how to play a mage (or anything that was'nt melee) correctly, especially one that weird. the others weren't that much better at it, so the GM just gave us a excuse to have the mage be unconscious this session.

"burning"

Every time someone hands me a pre-made spellcaster I inevitably end up just blasting things because I don't have the attention span to look through fiftyish spells. The last time this happened I ended up burning down a forest in a wizards tower that included the center tree that we needed to climb up to get to the next level.

Playing a Bard during one of my first campaigns was incredibly awkward for me for two reasons. The first was that, well, it was one of my first campaigns and I was still adjusting to the system. The second was only for reasons I found out later- I much prefer playing characters who break things, preferably with some sort of weapon or just their fists. Playing a Bard left me sitting there going, "Okay, I play this song to give everyone a +1 boost... Can't really do much else since my weapons are shit and I'm not high enough a level to have much in the way of offense..." Sadly, the campaign was cancelled early on, so I never really got far enough to do that, either.

Nowadays I mostly build offensive types, but I will be playing the team medic in an upcoming campaign, and I would forsee myself habit the same problem when I'm not healing people... Only this time I had the foresight to equip him with a flamethrower for when he's not healing his allies. Yes, I am playing a medic who carries around a flamethrower. I am hoping to make that as awesome as it sounds.

It's actually quite easy to make a bard that completely blows away the damage dealt by the big guys with heavy weapons, the secret is the fact that maintaining bardic music is a free action not a standard action and it can be maintained indefinately at no cost, so if your music is giving every strike +10d6 sonic damage per strike you can take full advantage of this yourself in melee simply by continuing to chant "kill kill kill" or by acting in a menacing fashion.

And that is why the BardBarian works as a class (and is awesome). Especially when they're drummers, wielding clubs as their drumsticks.

Think Luke is the kind to get overspecialised in what he prefer to play.
Rika is more akin to know the rules about everything.

I would'nt be surprised if he was the type of guy to get hyperfocused on one thing when trying to do it. that wouldbe how he go through is studies despite his carefree nature.
