So... you're taking Mentor now and Leadership later (because you don't get the bonuses for being a mentor without spending a feat on them) even though the GM has said that you can get the mentor bonuses by just taking the Leadership feat?
I guess you must really need that 7th-level feat slot for something else. ^^;
So, I can take apprentice in first level (and get UMD as class skill and get freebie copying of my spells), then it evolves to mentor (I get Shar priestess as apprentice), then as my apprentice graduates I take leadership feat, get apprentice as cohort, get followers and I keep my mentor perks so long I spend 8 hours a day teaching/studying? Is that correct?
Would a lesser aasimar with an align toward LE work?
Works in Thay as an assasin/dancer-cover :3
Thought about going for Cloaked Dancer
? Well, monk or soulknife would definitely able to be effective in said PrC (or even dip level as assassin as PrC progresses arcane spellcasting some reason). Or a bard who is able hide his weapons or conjure one on fly (assassin class gives spells to hide weapons and bard has one 2th level spell able conjure light weapon as swift action).
Plus pretty pics;http://www.dandwiki.com/w/images/thumb/6/68/Dancer_FFT_for_DanD.jpg/180px-Dancer_FFT_for_DanD.jpghttp://2.bp.blogspot.com/-HXo8q8ICeRw/T1PFwHkSnZI/AAAAAAAAA18/EJ8dW5PuwFs/s1600/ivanja.jpg
Or you could be something truly exotic; drow bard (drow bards get ACF where they replace bardic knowlegde for poison use, but then again drows of the underdark got 'master of poisons' feat which allows use poisons safely and apply them as swift action on your weapon. Very
handy for non-PrC assassin).RubySlippers:
Yeah, math can hurt your head. So that's why I suggested either I or GM could work the numbers for you and just tell where invest skill points and give feat recommendation for running business in Thay
. It's just that your feat is....too easy
for GM's liking. When speaking of doing profit other ways than just looting dungeons it needs be bit trickier but not tricky as doing dungeon exploring.
Although politics in Thay makes it tricky. But the feat gives no window nor any flaw what fellow thayan can exploit besides blowing up the entire market/city where you had invested money (we got damn rivals!).
Anyways if you studied in Waterdeep and revere Waukeen (note; thayans are universally not that religious lot), then Rhaza considers his sister as 'odd duck' compared to other thayans with lack of ambition and focusing on running smooth trading....with no ulterior motives whatsoever. But he would let her run the mansion what party got and also farmlands as she got more 'business' mind set and skills for it than him (he is scribe professionally speaking and quite damn fine one too; he could forge Szas Taim's signature if he would just get sample of it or write thesis in netherese language about finer points of arcane).
Also I am curious where exactly our mansion and farmlands (which we are landowners of) are located? Nearest big town/city? Or is it near to metropolis even so it could be valid for my sister invest on metropolis market and go once every month collect money from there from invested businesses?
Honestly, I'd rather not, there's enough bloat already before me having to keep track of both 3.5 and Pathfinder classes. Try to keep yourself to skills, traits and backward compatible feats in Pathfinder. There's always arcane gish classes and builds available or the Psychic Warriors as a form of substitute.
Ok, for Snake there is psychic warrior variant which works like soulknife; in first level you need to pick call weapon power and 2th level you sacrifice a bonus feat to conjure your 'psychic weapon' which upgrades over your levels like soulknife weapon does. It's far superior compared to soulknife alone but you loose in stealth skills and skill points (but those can be dealt with just picking cosmopolitant to get stealth as class skill or take human paragon level and then take disguise ranks and enter assassin, take psychic one and then enter cloaked dancer).
Or play bard as I suggested as bard makes fine cloaked dancer also as they can conjure with one spell a magical rapier as swift action. Or able hide/disguise light weapons on their outfits or inside hair
