Some are born to wealth. Some must toil all their lives for it. Others gain it by chance, or trickery. But these heroes earn their coin by slaying gigantic winged beasts more ancient than the civilizations of men.

They are the
Dragon Slayers.

And when they heard the king was offering unimaginable wealth to whoever cleared the Dragonhalls of it's scaly residents, they knew what had to be done.

Dramatis Personae:

Steelhawk as Kothargix Kepix, Kobold Sorcerer.

Aegis as Evanche, Adept of the Whispers of Hoar, Tiefling Invoker.

Nealneal as Amon'Kul, Tiefling Fighter.

Kay as Alénthian, Favored Soul of Corellon., Eladrin Avenger.

Majestic Goat as Big Iron, Battle Engineer, Warforged Artificier.

Wassermelone as Estir Vesarian, Tiefling Monk.

    So I'm definitely interested but I'm kinda away from my copy of the books/character builder. Should have a character by then though. Probably an Avenger, likely a dragonborn.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    Powered up to the max. I'm looking for optimised builds, but I'll let you know if I think the build is too cheesy.

    Are we allowed to take tattoos and such? Or just stick with items?

  • GrogGrog My sword is only steel in a useful shape.Registered User regular
    Tattoos are fine, as are potions, ammunition and other consumables.

    I think I'll say no soulfangs/dragonshards (and obviously no artifacts or intelligent items).

    Reading vertroue's sheet I realise I've forgotten something.

    You get one expertise feat free. This includes the essentials feats, but also versatile expertise if you're into that kind of thing.

    edit: and that I accidentally put a 4 in front of the 5,000 gold. These have been remedied in the OP

    Is there a policy on rare items? I've none in mind at the moment but occasionally I stumble across one in the course of building thinking "this is cool" then reading "Rare" and grumbling.

    Trying to create a warforge artificer here.
    Will there be any chance for me to craft alchemical items or magic items between encounters?

    edit: Big Iron is here. Still got 800gp for items, any suggestion?
    Background will be ready sometime tomorrow

    No restriction on rarity.

    You'll be able to take extended rests every few encounters (the dragonhalls are a big place) and you should have time to use rituals and such between.

    My builder will not allow me to take another feat on it so I will post it here and hope I don't forget it...It is Avowed dragonfoe-gain +1 to attack rolls verses dragons, while bloody this increases to +2. Also if I score a crit verses a dragon with a melee or close attack power, I gain temp hit points = to the dragons lvl.

    Evanche, Tiefling Invoker Adept of the Whispers of Hoar

    rqrJj.jpg

    A well-built, attractive tiefling stands before you, the scent of brimstone and a light frost snow present in the air around her as if some exotic perfume. Her jet black hair rolls gently down the side of her head and in between the well-formed, prominent horns that mark her heritage while her attention seems to be mostly disinterested, the passing throng of peoples and sights providing not too much excitement for one such as her kind.

    But as you observe this odd traveler you note that her head carefully tracks those in town that show a more...unscrupulous side to their lives: the criminals or the corrupt, liars or charlatans, abusive parents or simply overzealous religious figures. Each she stares at in turn with charcoal-rimmed ruby eyes, a gaze that chills you to the very bone and one borne of pure directed hate towards those individuals she spots as transgressing in some manner. Later, perhaps that very day, perhaps tomorrow, and maybe as long as a week from now you hear of these people again, long after this infernal-borne creature has passed from your sight.

    All of them are dead.

    Their manner of death varies as much as their very composition, but as surely as the sun rises each morning, every single person that this tiefling lays her judging gaze upon ends up in the clutches of the underworld sooner or later.

    A question. Would it be silly to have a character based around forced movement and knocking things prone? Would that work versus dragons?

    I can see it being pretty effective, alot of the dragon's rely on mobility for their instinctive actions and iirc don't have any defence against forced movement.

    Big Iron, Warforged Battle Engineer

    tt21C.jpg?1

    Big Iron, one of the fourth generation of Centurion Battle Animan, created by mages during an ancient war against extraplanar invasion. It was created to adapt, to lead and to support the army of simpler but more devastating Mk.III. 77 Mk.IV were created and served during the war. Big Iron was #77, the last one created by Majan the Wildmage with material and energy from Elemental Chaos as a experiment. Because it was crafted in a haste, and wildmage himself wasn't known for his artistic talent, Big Iron came out bulky and unpolished like a big piece of iron, hence its name's origin.

    At the end of the war, only a handful of Mk.IV survived, among them was Big Iron. Even though Big Iron managed to hold and break a few lines with its "brothers", it did not perform as the wildmage expected and considered it a failure, and he boxed it until someday he's able to upgrade it. The time never came, as the wildmage himself ventured into Elemental Chaos one night and never returned.

    Big Iron took an "extended rest" until one day it found itself sold to a merchant, as he thought it was just a relic suit of armor. It was awaken by a servant when the poor soul tried to disassemble it for cleaning, but instead became disassembled by Big Iron. After its escape, he has become a mercenary to fight for anyone who offer it resource or information about its creator. One day it heard of someone mentioned Dragon Hall and the reward offered by the king, it could not resist but to enlist.

    Minor change to Evanche: I swapped my multiclass from Avenger (Hero of Faith) to Rogue (Twilight Adept). I just really want to take advantage of Silent Presence PP feature against dragons and am having a bitch of a time gaining stealthing tricks while being an Invoker and not a hybrid.

    How flexible are you on the item selection? For example, could one break the level 11 item into gold and buy two level 9's with some change left over, or are we strictly the three core items and whatever we can buy with 5K gold?

  • vertrouevertroue I am Female Totes Not a SithRegistered User regular
    I should have asked that as well since I did knock an item down to lvl 8 I think.

    Replacements only, so just three core items and 5k.

    Same will go for the wishlist, so if you've really got your eye on lower level stuff it won't be lost to you forever.

    Don't forget the gnoll.

    Story:
    Gnoryc was a sell-sword by trade, abandoning his fellow gnolls long ago to get the chance to hunt for glory and gold. Gnoryc didn't need weapons; why wield steel when his own claws were sharper than any axe or spear he had come across? They hand't failed him in the past; why change now?

    This Dragonhall business had him intrigued, truth be told.The chance to disembowel great wyrms with his two hands and get paid to do it? Where to sign up?
