Don't worry about classes the group needs. One should never 'play' anything they don't want to. Part of the challenge is to overcome obstacles, and that includes not having certain classes.

Well I'll have SOME holy magic she will still have healing and the like just not alot of it. And is likely to take care of herself first since she'll be in combat enough. Especially at advanced levels in her PrC. I just wanted to point that out thats all.

I know, but I'm not using Unearthed Arcana.

Core books, Complete Arcane, Divine and Warrior only.

You did say the 3.0 surce books were ok like the Masters of the Wild as well remember. If you did change your mind let me know but I really want to try a SHIFTER PrC.

ECL races would be out, as the game starts at first level and I'd prefer to not have a character start the game as a 'monster' class with levels of their race.

As for alignments, remember that people in this group must be willing to work together, and for a cause without hesitation, and without compensation. Doing the right thing because it needs to be done.

The restrictions for Druids who worship Mieliekki are fine, I have no issue with that. Mithril Chain will be hard to come by however, and given that the characters start at first level, it won't be an issue for awhile really.

So, boss, if my charecter's in your world and worship's Mieliki, can she take Ranger, then Druid, and use Ranger weapons?

No, that's FR specific, and I like to stick to the traditional druid ways.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Druids are proficient with the following weapons: club, dagger, dart, quarterstaff, scimitar, sickle, shortspear, sling, and spear. They are also proficient with all natural attacks (claw, bite, and so forth) of any form they assume with wild shape (see below).

Druids are proficient with light and medium armor but are prohibited from wearing metal armor; thus, they may wear only padded, leather, or hide armor. (A druid may also wear wooden armor that has been altered by the ironwood spell so that it functions as though it were steel. See the ironwood spell description) Druids are proficient with shields (except tower shields) but must use only wooden ones.

A druid who wears prohibited armor or carries a prohibited shield is unable to cast druid spells or use any of her supernatural or spell-like class abilities while doing so and for 24 hours thereafter.


http://www.systemreferencedocuments.org/35/sovelior_sage/druid.html if you want to confirm it.  unless the DM intends to override that rule. then if you're a druid who took a ranger class you could still use the weapons of a ranger, you just can't wear metal armor or shields.  I've got a 3.5 player's hand book infront of me, and it is the same there.

So the weapon thing is if the DM is going to use 3.5 or 3 rules.  Diety aside.

Currently on my second concept; a re-flavored Shugenja, worshipping Brigit.

Yes, I am a divine caster; no, I cannot heal you.  Cure spells fall under Water, and are thus forbidden to Fire "shugenja."  I can, however, blow stuff up REAL good. :D

I'm working on a Favored Soul of Brigitte or Athena, and thinking about party dynamics.  I've already played a few fire priests, and would have fun doing it again, but a female would boh encourage me towards a difrent concept and might make intresting party dynamics. 

But that depends on what gender folks are playing.

An ELF gets Longbows and Shortbows (including composite versions) and rapier and longsword as racial bonus weapons. So I don't have to take a Ranger class I get them even if a Dark Fey. And Leather or Hide armor is fine by me.
