Akina is a frontliner but can manage as a scout too. Switch hitting Ranger, yay :3

Lillai is a frontline kind of cleric but she'll definitely need some support. And a second semi-healer wouldn't hurt in case one of the goes down.

Aside for an idle whine...

...one thing I must groan about is how APs start at level 1. Part of me is eyeballing Arcane Trickster, which would fit well and is theoretically doable with at U.Rogue 1 / Wizard 3 with a feat... but starting away from the core idea for an entire level for an PbP (or even an AP in general) seems like a bit of an overly long haul plan. Alas, I will eternally stare at PrC despite my inner munchkin telling me: "This is a bad idea, PrC are the worst."

I could switch one of Snow's hexes to 'cure light wounds' but a hex can only be used once a day on the same target!

I clearly just have to wait for the bad end to hit at level 3, then swap it out with a friend of Shiru's come to see why she hasn't finished her work! Problem solved!

@Mister Ugly: Could always use Hex Vulnerability for the cheapest possible healing oh wait that got fixed. Though realistically, groups are usually fine as long as they have access to divine magic... at least one they have enough coin to purchase a Wand of Adventure Forever Cure Light Wounds.

silent stalker has one instance of cure light prepared too.

Ps: i think i'm gonna submit a second character... as we lack serious frontliners i'm currently thinking cavalier with either beast rider or emissary

I wouldn't mind finding a higher level game myself... something in the 8th to 10th level. Just so I can see something that I've never seen at 1st through 5th... and it would be fun to create the character.

It is my intense  hope that this game gets us out of 1st level... only did that once on an adventure path and we cycled through replacements almost constantly...

Healing Hex is one of the most broken 1lv ability in the game. Basicly, its ultra townhealer bot.. and I think there might be mass combat on the horizon in this campaign... it will never be bad.. and it will give you change to get Major healing later on.

PLease, no. Stay level1 as its AP, there will be levelups in the future, and with then, they are earned (and solifies ppl to play their characters as they have achieved something, ergo keep playing more.. )

It's probably better to play the AP as designed.

I think so too. start at level 1 and play the path as it was designed. maybe take out useless battles that are only there for grinding purposes and replace them with something interesting, but no complete overhaul of the path needed for me

Without the grind, you lose the experience.

It's not open for debate whether the party is starting at 1st level or not. I know it's a tad boring, but it's a huge amount of effort to re-tune every encounter in the entire AP.

I also fully understand, having been converting Rise of the Runelords into 5e for a while. I am, however, a little bemused at the quick back and forth on the subject after a throwaway playful whine! Level 1 has its own merits! Low fantasy is fun too!

Imho, levels has nothing to do with Low/high fantasy aspect.

Forgotten Realms = High fantasy, even if the characters are lv1 and Middle Earth is low fantasy, no matter the levels of characters.
Key element is how rare magic is at the world. Levels dont play any part on this equalition. Even if player characters were magic users themselves.

I'm confused... I was just saying that I wouldn't mind a high level game. I wasn't wining nor complaining about AP starting at 1st level.

I can always go the white mage archetype.  It's pretty bad but it'll at least give me access to cure spells in a dire emergency.  ....Though a CLW wand and UMD is probably a better option.

I did take Use Magic Item specifically to eventually get some big, throbbing shafts of curative potency

Not sure that you need the skill to handle some of those big, throbbing rods of potency...;)

What, you think it is easy to handle multiple of those at once?  Its like they have minds of their own and requires a lot of... ranks... to handle
