Only thing I see is that it might be easiest if you tried something other than 'tank', cause the nude Dark Elf seems to be doing a pretty good job of it(53 armor class and 263 hp unclothed/unarmored is absurd. I wasn't intending to build a 'twink', but holy hell, ouch).
We'll see, I guess? I'm looking forward to this game, and cringing at the first time Alystin gets to make an attack of opportunity, as it'll be a long ways to go, there. 1 + Dex modifier number of Attacks of Opportunity per round? And with Improved Combat Reflexes, all of which can be applied to the same target at the same time? Are you SERIOUS?!
Can only imagine one's shoulder coming unsocketed swinging the sword that many times in such a short period of time.
That's not bad. I'm guessing that you've got a reach out to 30-40' right?
Right now Merhault's only pulling in 10' (Kusari-Gama) + 5' Extending (DR Something, it's a Drow ability; works on flexible or polearm weapons; not swords) +5' (Fighter 11) + 5' (Mental Weaponry); then Size benefits, if I use a Giant Size
scroll. However 25' reach with no doughnut "hole" is probably more than enough. Going Large pushes me to 35' of reach; and Giant Size goes to caster limit; or less if desired. Going Colossal is a cool idea, but probably not going to be needed ever.
I'll probably make two +2 (8,000 gp) Adamantine (+trivial gp) Hideaway (+7,00 gp; trivial), Sizing (+4,000 gp;trivial) Kusari-Gamas. Hideaway and Sizing being "add-ons" don't actually increase a weapons enhancement bonus; so if they're cheap, they're free.
My own "defense" sequence is something like:
-Enemy enters within 25' of my character
-Take an AoO.... no tripping though. ... The Stand Still feat might be good though.
-When enemy approaches within attacking range
--Get attacked in melee
--Get furious charged/pounced; enemy is forced to make one attack
-Counter attack with a full attack action (8 attacks)
-Repeat until all Attacks of Opportunity are expended
Right now I've got 13 AoOs with which to spread out, at this point, I'm almost hoping that people take a swing at me.
-If I'm toe to toe with two other people that have TWF and +16 BaB (8 attacks each; that's 16 attacks in one round); I can unleash 8*14 attacks in retaliation; 104 attacks back, for every 14 taken. Damn, Counterattack is pretty awesome.
Also, for level 20... 50-ish armour and 300-ish HP is about average. In one game I was aiming to get my charater's AC into the high 40's; and instead settled for miss chance.For Magic items,
Belt of Magnificence is an awesome all around item. +6 to all stats, belt slot, and a flat 200k. Nearly anything else of that level can be covered with scrolls and spells.
A +1 luck blade with no wishes as one of the Dragon's natural weapons would be handy, as would a +1 Defending 'claw'; cast Greater Magic Weapon to bring both to +5. Most "high end" weapons should have +9 worth of special abilities; +1 in base enhancement bonus, and a +5 thanks to a basically free casting of GMW.
Also, Scrolls with 3 Level 9 Spells, with a Caster level of 20 are only 13,500 gp. I know that I'm going to stock up. since it means that pretty much every
spell is available at maximum caster level. Thank goodness for my Portable hole.... I ... might buy a second, or a belt of many pouches.
I think I'm going to need some Merciful weapons..... a merciful bow; a golembane pickaxe, and a disruption mace/club. I don't think that I'd need anything else. That's sort of an interesting prospect, a character that doesn't need
many weapons, in D&D of all games.
Kongming will confrim, but for a "Dragon" (aka, creatures with the [Awesome] subtype); you can play them using the following forumla:
1. Take Creature CR
2. If an [Awesome] Creature (Beholders, Dragons, Mindflayers, Outsiders, and most things with high level wizard-grade powers; plus other things); add +4 to the CR
3. Add +1 CR For making your charcter a PC
4. Your current CR is your "level" in D&D, if you were a PC.
LA and HD are bad ways to gauge power, and both ignore the other, which makes Mindflayer and Dragon PCs something to cry about.Meta-breath Rods
You'll probably pay the cost in rounds for your breath weapon. There are ways to get infinite breath attacks though. I'm sure that Kongming would adjust that to "1 breath per round" or "1 breath per iterative attack" depending on how much she deigns to crush us under her power-armoured jackboots.
