I think what you're after is the Cavalier class. That'd be fine.

I'm waiting on someone to say whether a swashbucker roguetype would be acceptible in the setting. If it's not compatable, then not much point in going further with the idea.

Alrighty then, how about this:

Tari grew up on the docks of Haven, working with her father on his fishing boat from an early age; after her mother died of an illness when Tari was only 5 years old.

When she was merely a lass of 15, the blonde haired beauty caught the eye of the son of a local merchant of no small water and after a surprisingly short courtship, married. But the young couple had an enemy in the younger brother of her husband and a plan was hatched before the sheet of the wedding bed was warmed. The next morning, her husband would be dead and she accused of the crime! Fearing for her life and the vengeful family, her fahter helped her escape to sea and after some effort, she found herself alone and with only the clothes on her back... no prospect and suredly a wealthy merchant family searching for her already. Falling back on her experience, she hired herself out as crew on a trading vessel and began to learn the art of defending herself.

After a couple of years, she had learned the art of the blade and her natural grace served her in good stead as she gained experience and a certain flamboyant attitude.

When her vessel was hired to take solomnic families away, she had the misfortune to be recognized on the dock by the same brother who had framed her for the crime. Now, she must find a way to get away again and arranged to go with a group of refugees when they made landfall; hoping to disappear again into the population.

It's rough, but I'll refine it as I work on the character. This gives her an interesting background, a potential sub-plot to play with and a reason to leave the sea.

Now... to find the details on character generation...

The reason I was shying away from the Cavalier class was the assumption it is pretty mount dependent. I'll have a gander at it though.

EFA, the same is true for the Samurai - in Pathfinder, it's a Cavalier offshoot.

Questions:

If you're using AC as DR varient rules, how do you deal with dodge or mobility feats? Do they add to defense, or not have any effect at all?

They add to defense. They make you harder to hit.

Oh, I had thought that due to it's appearance in Ultimate Combat that it was more of a separate class.

Still have a bit of reading I need to catch up on.

Kender... kender are like cockroaches. They turn up everywhere, and getting rid of them is usually entirely more difficult than it ought to be.


Kender are NOT cockroaches and I would be more than happy to play one if you would have me.  :)

I forgot to comment on sexual content... I'm pretty open minded. As long as SOME sex occurs someplace, I'm thrilled. lol

Anyone wanna talk about potential relationships with a blonde haired beauty with attitude? If they survive very long with the Armor as DR system. Easy to hit, not a lot DR in the light armors, etc, etc, etc. Get her while she's alive! hehehe

Do potential relationships have to include the sex? I was kind of asking about that myself earlier, and no one bit. :/
While Lorraine is somewhat a victim of her upbringing, I think she has learned that friends are not to be taken lightly, whatever walk of life they come from. One just has to get past mistaking her for a man, which has been happening to her a lot of late...

Anyway. I also forgot to comment on sexual content. I'm generally okay with it - I like my fantasy to be somewhat gritty, and I'm of the firm and fervent belief that sex should get rolled in there with all the rest of that.
I also don't have a problem with kender, my comparison of them with cockroaches aside. Most of the time, I like them - they're persistent.

No, sex doesn't have to be part of it. There are friends all over the world who never get beyond the occasional hug or punch to the shoulder. Relationship is often a misunderstood word these days. It can range from "Hey, I know you!" to bed-mates and old married couples.

Tari tends to not jump into bed with just anyone, although she's as likely to want to scratch an itch as anyone. So, unless something "magical" happens, any relationship would have to be pre-existing for sex to be on the menu in the near term (Such an event is possible in backstory though).

On Lorriane... How much does fighters get these days at 1st level? Those masterworked items cost a bundle even if you craft them yourself... How can I get some?? lol

Masterwork's probably out of the question unless you invest a trait into more starting money. Weapon is +300, Armor/Shield +150, Gear +100.

Was wondering if someone would notice that! *chuckle* I took the Rich Parents trait - +900gp.

Before this, she has had some occasion to go back and forth from 'home' to an assortment of places - it is not completely unlikely that Lorraine has bumped into someone. And if not .. well ... her proverbial traps do include a handful of horses, a drunkard and a bitter cripple. If that doesn't inspire curiousity in somebody, I didn't do it right. *grin*

Then a kender I shall play.  I draft up something today/tonight.  I do so love kenders.  *starts whirling his hoopak*

As to sex, I should let you all know that I have been a member here since December and I have yet to write ONE sex post.  I'm all about developing relationships and subplots.  If sex happens, it does.  If it doesn't, it doesn't.

Just my humble opinion.

Adds nine hundred. A good deal, if you can make it work.
I can't make it work for most. :/

Given the in-book description of kender, my sense of humour just kicked in, and I think I might have to clean tea off the monitor. ^^;
I should note, I don't mind cleaning tea off my monitor, as long as it doesn't get into the keyboard.  ;D

Sets to, actually. The wording is "increases to 900", not "increases by."

No promises.  *hands Thorne a tea cup* I just happened to find this in my bag.  I was hoping that you could help me find its owner.

That seems appropriate for a Krynnish gnome. Go for it.

Gnomes are my second favorite Krynn character type.  :)  His/her name needs to be much longer, though.  Or is that the short form?  :)

Indeed.  :)

The second name is actually a random piece of her guild affiliation. 

Her life's quest involves researching non-violent uses of alchemy.  (Not that she neglects the violent ones!)
