Ok, I'm still working on trying to find a character sheet or work one up real quick...I did all the scratch work in notepad (so it looks like a disaster).
So first here's my item list....
Handy Haversack 2,000 gp
pearl of power (3rd) 9,000 gp
+2 mithral shirt 5,100 gp
ring of protection +2 8,000 gp
+2 defending longsword 18,000 gp
+1 Flaming, Grayflame quarterstaff 18,000 gp
1900 gp (have yet to buy and deduct cost of mundane items)
Second here's the two feats I'd need approved for use (along with my complete feat list to help show why I chose these two):
Oversized Two-weapon Fighting (pg 111; 3.5 Complete Adventurer)
Somatic Weaponry (pg 47; 3.5 Complete Mage)
Skill Focus: Knowledge (History)
Weapon Focus (Quarterstaff)
And lastly here's a quick overview of my character concept:
I started out using Gandalf as an inspiration (perhaps a tad cliche I know), but then I got thinking between the already present expressed interest in arcane spellcasters and the interesting effect the campaign world has on arcane magic itself; I started thinking again. Aside from being the cliche wizardly type (who isn't really known for "casting" spells), who is Gandalf...he is a wise, diplomatic sort.
So I started from there, and ended up with a potentially "aspiring" Loremaster in a wood elven fighter/cleric; that has at least 1 rank in almost every Knowledge skill...I think the only one I neglected was Engineering. He also possess fair Diplomacy and Sense Motive abilities, so combined with his knowledge of local laws and nobility he can serve as an adventuring party's "spokesperson".
Male Wood-Elf fighter 4/cleric of Tanil 6
domains: Travel, Luck
Also planning on using the Fighter (Two-Weapon Warrior Archetype) if allowed.
EDITED: twice.... once for copy mistake on ability scores.... second time for just being an idiot (for which I have no comment).
