Any oath or deal backed by less than vast power is basically worthless.

Furthermore the tattoo is well known. In any situation where trust is needed there is a -4 penalty to the roll. The tattoo fairly radiates mistrust.

By the way, I am not trying to dissuade you. I love a 'I am a good guy but nobody will trust me' type. I just want you to know what you are getting into.

Most people in the continent know what the tattoo means, so most people naturally natives of the broken lands. Characters from the broken lands have a -4 penalty in social situations where trust is needed.

I am not trying to dissuade you btw. I just want you to know what you are getting into.

Not dissuaded at all, don't worry. In a sandbox world, being from the Broken Lands gives my character a built-in reason to adventure. He'll be trying to break that curse, of course.

I've narrowed my class down to two options; either duskblade or a wizard specializing in divination (with necromancy as the forbidden school). In speaking with Smeowlin, it seems she's considering something similar (insofar as she's considering a gish or focused arcane caster, not necessarily the same classes). I'm waiting to see which way she goes, so that my character's class compliments hers.

I just wanted to make sure that Psionic stuff is okay because I'm considering playing a Phrenic Human (pg 205 of the Expanded Psionics Handbook). I'm planning on doing a mix of Warblade/Sorcerer up to Jade Phoenix Mage eventually so the only Psionics I'd have to worry about are the ones granted by that racial template. I'm also pretty indecisive so I might take the Half-Fey template instead or even go with Crusader/Divine Caster up to Ruby Knight Vindicator if I want to go a more divine route.

I'm having a difficult time deciding between which place to hail from but I'll decide soon enough I hope!

I'm decidedly a straight up divination wizard, then. Character sheet will be coming soon.

Question about the map... are the edges of the map hard borders, or are they just unexplored beyond those points? Just curious.

Are meldshapers like the Totemist or Incarnate allowed? From Magic of Incarnum. Pretty much all of my 3.5 experience right there.
And it was still technically a 3.PF game, so not even real 3.5 experience...

Oh, Crimson pointed out that Phrenic increases CR as my HD increase so I'm gonna ditch that idea. I am potentially considering Githzerai instead of using a template if they could fit into the world.

Interested in playing a Fighter (no one laugh...). Think it would be fun to have such a large number of feats.

Would it be possible to play the Generic Warrior using the same generous house rules as Fighter?

I totally understand. Part of me was thinking of making a CW Samurai

The lower tiers are not that bad with the boost I house ruled in. The boost only applies to pc classes so warrior does not qualify but samurai does. I allow psionics. They interact with arcane and divine so dispel etc works.

I apologize that my campaign setting is fragmented. I am missing some of my old notes and so am having to recreate some things. But it is going fast.

I wasn't referring to the NPC Warrior class, but the PC Generic Warrior class. My original post is a link to the SRD.

Generic Warrior is just like Fighter, but does not have heavy armor proficiency or tower shield proficiency. In exchange, you can select which save is the good one, which skills are in the class, and you can substitute any bonus feat with a selection from a small list of special abilities/progressions.

Just to give you an idea of my indecisiveness, I'm now considering a Ninja . I'm still pretty sure I'll end up with some sort of gish, but if I take the half-fey template I could still have some interesting spell casting options with SLA's while not being a caster class. I'll be sure to be ready and have a character concept made by the time everyone else is ready though!

I might be a Rogue/Ninja so I can get traps and evasion. Would the Rokugan Ninja be available to pick? It's from a Campaign specific book that I believe is the update from the 3.0 Oriental Adventures but I haven't looked too much at it. Sorry if I make you spend time considering stuff that I might not end up using!

Couple of DM rule/stance questions before picking character build;
1. Would a Swordsage or Ninja qualify to use Kung fu genius feat since same Wis to AC class ability as the monk??
2. Do knives count the same as daggers for weapon focus, shadowhand group etc.?
3. Rogues BS counts only on first strike or all strikes in round catches opponent FF, loss of dex, ..??
4. Would the Silent Hunter feat be allowed? Similar to swift hunter (CSco), that instead of stacking scout and ranger levels for the purpose of skirmish and FE, stacks rogue and ranger levels for he purpose of SA and FE. It is homebrewed based off Swift hunter and daring outlaw feats?

Oh and if I'm ever wondering about a build and someone else wants to do it instead, feel free to do so because it actually makes my decision making much easier

Specifically, my idea is starting Totemist 2/Incarnate 1. If they're allowed. Otherwise, I have no idea what I'd want to do.
