Legolas Nah

They Read My Mind... 0.o

I just discovered today that the Player's Handbook II that's out this month includes a boatload of acrobatics and archery feats. 0.o

Also, apparently there's a feat somewhere in Complete Warrior called "Combat Archery" that protects you from AoO's when using bows in melee ... how could I have missed that?

EDIT: Oh, that's how ... it's an Epic feat. Le sigh!

There's also, it seems, a ton of archery feats in Races of the Wild, presumably to go with the info on elves. Able Sniper, baby!

I love being pandered to. ^.^ I just wish I'd known it was happening before I put so much work into my character already.

Oh Stop Tweaking Already

the_gneech: "So if I'm gonna end up taking the 20% multiclass penalty anyway, why not go for ranger 4 / rogue 3 / fighter 2 / thief-acrobat 1 thus gaining the Defensive Archery feat and being able to reallocate skill points from Knowledge (Religion) and Craft (Bowmaking) that I only took in order to qualify for Order of the Bow Initiate, and then take Natural Bond to beef up Hyzenthlay's stats since I won't be able to get another level of ranger until at least 13th..."

Man, I miss Fantasy HERO. *groan*

Wednesday Workout Report ("Crack That Whip" Edition)

It's been a while since I posted a Workout Report because, well, it's been a while since I did a workout. So tonight, in order to rectify that situation, I stopped at Best Buy on the way home and picked up Dance, Dance Revolution Ultramix 3, which laurie_robey and I have been eyeing ever since we noticed it had a song on it by They Might Be Giants. (You can imagine our "Squee!" when we discovered it also had Devo and The Clash on it, not to mention Ray Charles and "Butterfly," one of my big faves of DDR music that kailucidricwolf sent me.)

So we played about half an hour of it tonight, enough to work up a sweat anyway. Our new pads are also doing that "rear arrow not responding" BS. We're going to have to do some serious troubleshooting on this, or ship 'em back to the manufacturer in exchange for metal ones, something. I don't mind getting a bad score when I screw up -- that happens often enough. But I resent getting a bad score when I was right on the arrow and it just didn't notice!

When the pads are working, it's just about the most fun you can have without shocking the neighbors -- but when they're wonky, it's just irritating!

Anyway, hopefully this is the pebble that starts an avalanche of new Workout Report posts. Stay tuned!

Celedras: The Final Tweak (Gawd I Hope)

I apologize to anybody who suggested I should do Ranger/Scout and I doubted you. Collapse )

Multiclassing problem fixed ... archery, mobility, and acrobatics enhanced ... skill points cranked up ... all in all I can't think of any way this character could possibly be tweaked from here.

Stick a fork in Celedras; he's done!
