It was going to be first level, I believe (i even noted in my app, apparently). I think it was likely something like cleric, so I could use wands of healing; or beguiler, for party face; or some such.

Doesn't matter. I am headed all 13 levels straight, now.

I can aim my PC towards Charisma/Face, or more battlefield control. I see we have a big damage dealer, and what looks like a secondary melee in the Xeph (ranged/Finesse?). I saw that Glitch has a large weapon, so is he wading into melee too, or is that for show?
I'm ranged, 100% ranged. My mind arrows have a range increment of 390 ft.

Don't sell yourself short! You may be range focused but your mind made continues to get enhancement bonus increase! You can still wade into melee if needed!

True, but why would I want to if I have 390 range increment? Lol, I have close combat shot and point blank shot so yea I can go melee without a penalty, but I rather stay my distance.

Reminds me of the eldritch spear warlock I made back in the day. Flying high and invisible and taking pot shots.

Weekends are not great for me. I got my app ported over, but it'll be Monday before I can do any serious editing of it.

@Dirkoth

I handle shapechange on a case-by-case basis, since the nature of shapechanging varies by class. In the case of DFA, I've only dealt with it a couple times (tbh, the class seems great so I have no idea why people don't use it more). Still, my base-line assumption is that with a shapechange you are your base creature inside the body of another. In other words, the only things that change are superficial physical traits (claws, wings, fangs, etc). Non-superficial traits (breath weapons, abilities, etc) remain the same.

@RogueAlchemist

Not to worry. I did my best to build the groups around their potential posting rates as well, so your group has a slightly slower posting rate, unlike Group 1 which all listed their rate as "lightning fast" or the like.

@Everyone:

Just so you know -- I'm in the process of moving, which means the next 3-ish weeks will be a bit slow/spotty on my end. By around mid-August I will be at least mostly settled into my new place, which means that I'll get back to full speed (aka, being on almost everyday for a good deal of time each day).

We can still get started, but don't be surprised if I don't respond too quickly for now.

Thanks @Alpheus: just wanted to check. I think the official rules (that I've found) indicate what you said as well, but I have seen DM's have different interpretations. Gods know the 3.5 rules on polymorphing/shapechanging are hard to understand. Wanted to be sure, would rather know before crunch time, than during combat or something.

Could you create separate party OOC's for ease of strategy talk, Alpha? Some important post could get lost in the feed otherwise.

Was planning on doing that, actually...just hadn't gotten around to it. Will do, though.

Pretty happy with what I got, more of a utility character, more helps out in battle while the others take advantage of his enemies misfortunes (tripping with bolas), ah they are going to hate me.

Question. In your game, could Wilding Clasps and the wild armor enhancement (or something similar) be applied to a in this case, dragoncreature that uses Alternate form to change their shape?

@Anamiac:

HMmmmmmm....

HHMMMMMMM....

Interesting question. My instinct is to say no, because Wild Shaping is a highly specific type of shapeshifting, as opposed to the many shape-shifting options in DnD 3.5e.

So, flatly, no.

BUT...

If you can give me specifics, and I see that it might make sense to do something, I could create a re-flavored version of Wilding Clasps/Wild enhancements for the situation. In general I don't mind homebrewing/rule-bending if there is good reason.
