Alright, I have shaken off the long workday brain frieds, so, in order of when they happened in thread..
Muse: In a game where I'm allowing the extra cohort thing period, the ability to have your more numerous cohorts have their level limit jump up seems already pretty good even without getting the extra feat, I'm thinking to leave it be unless everyone finds that egregious.
Callie: We are certainly getting a bunch of cleric, /but/, given things like variety in domains and their powers and deities, and in what walks of life/purpose said clerics have, if you want to keep the cleric baroness thing, that's really potentially okay, I don't mind. If you want to change it, that's okay too. The Witch for hire is potentially cool and a literal character assassin is a nice spin, though a functionally impossible to save against hex is a bit.. nnng. The main saving grace I'm seeing for it is that it would take you multiple rounds to throw onto someone to get every effect going, and, you know, people have crap that detects magic and crap. Certainly not everyone, but enough that you would probably want to be relatively circumspect in throwing that around hardcore, sooo, we can potentially just see how that works out in play.
Muse: That looks all nascently fine, I would note that if you did just want to be a member of your own house and not the boss of it, that's okay too. If you are the head, you nominally, as a senatorial family head, sit in the Senate. Do you bother with that? Send a proxy? Have an opinion on the big feud of focusing on Qadira vs focusing on Galt?
ERF: So for instance, one of the things of being a lone (well, duo) mercenary assassin for hire would be, what are your buy ins to the setting? Do you have a particular regular patron? Any specific goals beyond making dudes dead and making bling? Things you emotionally invest in? Certainly having an actual mercenary band to your name to hire out would be a help.
Shadow: I'm sorry something couldn't be worked out. If you do have another idea, we can always try talking that out. Being a stealth capable person isn't a no go, just the angle you were pursuing one from was difficult. I would recommend looking at it as concept as much as classes, as far as it goes.
Gingerscorpion: Sounds potentially entirely cool.
Now for PMs..
