    Holy: A holy weapon is imbued with holy power. This power makes the weapon good-aligned and thus bypasses the corresponding damage reduction.

This negative level cannot be overcome in any way (including by restoration spells) while the weapon is wielded.
    Bane: A bane weapon excels against certain foes. Against a designated foe, the weapon's enhancement bonus is +2 better than its actual bonus. It also deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against the foe.

    Special Abilities
    Traits:
    ~Elven Reflexes: One of your parents was a member of a wild elven tribe, and you've inherited a portion of your elven parent's quick reflexes. You gain a +2 trait bonus on initiative checks.
    ~Scarred Descendent: Your own people are your favored enemy. You gain a +1 trait bonus on rolls to confirm critical hits against favored enemies of your own subtype and on Survival checks made to track such creatures.
    ~Killer: You made your first kill at a very young age and found the task of war or murder to your liking. You either take particular pride in a well-placed blow, or find vile pleasure in twisting the blade to maximize your target's pain. You deal an amount of additional damage equal to your weapon's critical hit modifier when you score a successful critical hit with a weapon; this additional damage is added to the final total, and is not multiplied by the critical hit multiple itself. This extra damage is a trait bonus.
    Drawback:
    ~Paranoid: You believe that someone or something is always out to get you, so you have a hard time truly trusting anyone. Anyone who attempts an aid another action of any type to assist you must succeed at a DC 15 check instead of the normal DC 10 check.


    Archetype:
    Divine Hunter: Most paladins rush into battle, meeting evil toe-to-toe. The divine hunter prefers to engage evil from afar, striking down her foes before they can threaten her allies.

    ~Precise Shot: A divine hunter gains Precise Shot as a bonus feat at 1st level, even if she doesn't meet the prerequisites. This ability replaces her Heavy Armor Proficiency.

    ~Shared Precision (Su): At 3rd level, when a divine hunter hits a creature with a ranged attack, she grants her allies within 10 feet of her the benefit of the Precise Shot feat against that target until the start of her next turn. Her allies must remain within 10 feet of her, and must be able both to see and hear the divine hunter to gain this benefit. This ability replaces aura of courage.

    ~Divine Bond (Su): At 5th level, a divine hunter forms a bond with her deity. This functions as the paladin's divine bond ability, except the bond must always take the form of a ranged or throwing weapon (excluding ammunition). In addition to the listed abilities, a divine hunter can add the distance, returning, or seeking special abilities to her weapon, but she cannot add the defending or disruption special abilities. Special abilities added to throwing weapons function normally when the weapon is used in melee. This ability replaces the standard paladin's divine bond.

    ~Distant Mercy (Sp): At 6th level, a divine hunter can expend two uses of her lay on hand abilities to use her lay on hands ability on a target within 5 feet per paladin level. Distant mercy has no effect on creatures harmed by positive energy, such as undead. This ability replaces the paladin's 6th-level mercy.

    ~Aura of Care (Su): At 8th level, a divine hunter and her allies gain a preternatural awareness of each other's position in battle. She and any allies within 10 feet of her no longer provide cover against each other's ranged attacks unless they wish to. Allies who cannot move or otherwise take actions still provide cover, as do flat-footed allies. The divine hunter and her allies must be able to see or hear each other to use this ability. This ability replaces aura of resolve.

    ~Hunter's Blessing (Su): At 11th level, a divine hunter can expend a use of her smite evil ability as a swift action to grant herself and all allies within 10 feet the Deadly Aim, Precise Shot, and Improved Precise Shot feats, even if they lack the prerequisites. The effects last for 1 minute. Evil creatures gain no benefit from this ability. This ability replaces aura of justice.

    ~Righteous Hunter (Su): At 14th level, a divine hunter's ranged weapons are treated as good-aligned for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. Any ranged attacks made by an ally within 10 feet of her are likewise treated as good-aligned for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction.
    This ability functions only while the divine hunter is conscious. This ability replaces aura of righteousness.


    Race:
    ~Drow-Descended: These half-elves clearly bear the features of their dark elf parents, branding them immediately as a potential threat in the eyes of others no matter what their intent or character. These half-elves have the drow-blooded and drow magic alternate racial traits.
    ~Drow Blooded: Some half-elves born of drow parents exhibit more drow traits than others—particularly many of the physical features of the drow—and have darkvision 60 feet and light blindness. This racial trait replaces the low-light vision racial trait.
    ~Drow Magic: A few half-elves with drow ancestry exhibit the innate magic of that race. Half-elves with this trait have drow blood somewhere in their background, and can cast dancing lights, darkness, and faerie fire each once per day, using the half-elf's character level as the caster level for these spell-like abilities. This racial trait replaces the adaptability and multitalented racial traits.
    ~Elven Immunities: Half-elves are immune to magic sleep effects and gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.
    Keen Senses: Half-elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.

    Feats:
    ~Precise Shot (1): You are adept at firing ranged attacks into melee. Prerequisite: Point-Blank Shot. Benefit: You can shoot or throw ranged weapons at an opponent engaged in melee without taking the standard –4 penalty on your attack roll.

    ~Point Blank Shot (1): You are especially accurate when making ranged attacks against close targets. Benefit: You get a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls with ranged weapons at ranges of up to 30 feet.

    ~Rapid Shot (3): You can make an additional ranged attack. Prerequisites: Dex 13, Point-Blank Shot. Benefit: When making a full-attack action with a ranged weapon, you can fire one additional time this round. All of your attack rolls take a –2 penalty when using Rapid Shot.

    ~Weapon Finesse (5): You are trained in using your agility in melee combat, as opposed to brute strength. Benefit: With a light weapon, rapier, whip, or spiked chain made for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls. Special: Natural weapons are considered light weapons.

    ~Leadership (7): Leadership Score: Your base Leadership score equals your level plus your Charisma modifier. In order to take into account negative Charisma modifiers, this table allows for very low Leadership scores, but you must still be 7th level or higher in order to gain the Leadership feat. Outside factors can affect your Leadership score, as detailed above.

    Cohort Level: You can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of your Leadership score, you can only recruit a cohort who is two or more levels lower than yourself. The cohort should be equipped with gear appropriate for its level (see Creating NPCs). A cohort can be of any race or class. The cohort's alignment may not be opposed to your alignment on either the law/chaos or good/evil axis, and you take a –1 penalty to your Leadership score if you recruit a cohort of an alignment different from your own.
    A cohort does not count as a party member when determining the party's XP. Instead, divide the cohort's level by your level. Multiply this result by the total XP awarded to you, then add that number of experience points to the cohort's total.
    If a cohort gains enough XP to bring it to a level one lower than your level, the cohort does not gain the new level—its new XP total is 1 less than the amount needed to attain the next level.

    Number of Followers by Level: You can lead up to the indicated number of characters of each level. Followers are similar to cohorts, except they're generally low-level NPCs. Because they're usually 5 or more levels behind you, they're rarely effective in combat.
    Followers don't earn experience and thus don't gain levels. When you gain a new level, consult Table: Leadership to determine if you acquire more followers, some of whom may be higher level than the existing followers. Don't consult the table to see if your cohort gains levels, however, because cohorts earn experience on their own.

    ~Dervish Dance (9): You have learned to turn your speed into power, even with a heavier blade. Prerequisites: Dexterity 13, Weapon Finesse, Perform (dance) 2 ranks, proficient with scimitar. Benefit: When wielding a scimitar with one hand, you can use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on melee attack and damage rolls. You treat the scimitar as a one-handed piercing weapon for all feats and class abilities that require such a weapon (such as a duelist’s precise strike ability). The scimitar must be for a creature of your size. You cannot use this feat if you are carrying a weapon or shield in your off hand.


    Paladin:
    ~Aura of Good: The power of a paladin's aura of good (see the detect good spell) is equal to her paladin level.

    ~Detect Evil: At will, a paladin can use detect evil, as the spell. A paladin can, as a move action, concentrate on a single item or individual within 60 feet and determine if it is evil, learning the strength of its aura as if having studied it for 3 rounds. While focusing on one individual or object, the paladin does not detect evil in any other object or individual within range.

    ~Smite Evil (x3 day): Once per day, a paladin can call out to the powers of good to aid her in her struggle against evil. As a swift action, the paladin chooses one target within sight to smite. If this target is evil, the paladin adds her Charisma bonus (if any) to her attack rolls and adds her paladin level to all damage rolls made against the target of her smite. If the target of smite evil is an outsider with the evil subtype, an evil-aligned dragon, or an undead creature, the bonus to damage on the first successful attack increases to 2 points of damage per level the paladin possesses. Regardless of the target, smite evil attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess.

    In addition, while smite evil is in effect, the paladin gains a deflection bonus equal to her Charisma modifier (if any) to her AC against attacks made by the target of the smite. If the paladin targets a creature that is not evil, the smite is wasted with no effect.

    The smite evil effect remains until the target of the smite is dead or the next time the paladin rests and regains her uses of this ability. At 4th level, and at every three levels thereafter, the paladin may smite evil one additional time per day, as indicated on Table: Paladin, to a maximum of seven times per day at 19th level.

    ~Divine Grace: At 2nd level, a paladin gains a bonus equal to her Charisma bonus (if any) on all saving throws.

    ~Lay on Hands (x7 day):  Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin can heal wounds (her own or those of others) by touch. Each day she can use this ability a number of times equal to 1/2 her paladin level plus her Charisma modifier. With one use of this ability, a paladin can heal 1d6 hit points of damage for every two paladin levels she possesses. Using this ability is a standard action, unless the paladin targets herself, in which case it is a swift action. Despite the name of this ability, a paladin only needs one free hand to use this ability.

    Alternatively, a paladin can use this healing power to deal damage to undead creatures, dealing 1d6 points of damage for every two levels the paladin possesses. Using lay on hands in this way requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. Undead do not receive a saving throw against this damage.

    ~Shared Precision (su)

    ~Divine Health: At 3rd level, a paladin is immune to all diseases, including supernatural and magical diseases, including mummy rot.

    ~Mercy (Shaken-3rd, Poison-9th):  At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, a paladin can select one mercy. Each mercy adds an effect to the paladin's lay on hands ability. Whenever the paladin uses lay on hands to heal damage to one target, the target also receives the additional effects from all of the mercies possessed by the paladin. A mercy can remove a condition caused by a curse, disease, or poison without curing the affliction. Such conditions return after 1 hour unless the mercy actually removes the affliction that causes the condition.

    At 3rd level, the paladin can select from the following initial mercies.
    • Fatigued: The target is no longer fatigued.
    • Shaken: The target is no longer shaken.
    • Sickened: The target is no longer sickened.

    At 6th level, a paladin adds the following mercies to the list of those that can be selected.
    • Dazed: The target is no longer dazed.
    • Diseased: The paladin's lay on hands ability also acts as remove disease, using the paladin's level as the caster level.
    • Staggered: The target is no longer staggered, unless the target is at exactly 0 hit points.

    At 9th level, a paladin adds the following mercies to the list of those that can be selected.
    • Cursed: The paladin's lay on hands ability also acts as remove curse, using the paladin's level as the caster level.
    • Exhausted: The target is no longer exhausted. The paladin must have the fatigue mercy before selecting this mercy.
    • Frightened: The target is no longer frightened. The paladin must have the shaken mercy before selecting this mercy.
    • Nauseated: The target is no longer nauseated. The paladin must have the sickened mercy before selecting this mercy.
    • Poisoned: The paladin's lay on hands ability also acts as neutralize poison, using the paladin's level as the caster level.

    At 12th level, a paladin adds the following mercies to the list of those that can be selected.
    • Blinded: The target is no longer blinded.
    • Deafened: The target is no longer deafened.
    • Paralyzed: The target is no longer paralyzed.
    • Stunned: The target is no longer stunned.

    These abilities are cumulative. For example, a 12th-level paladin's lay on hands ability heals 6d6 points of damage and might also cure fatigued and exhausted conditions as well as removing diseases and neutralizing poisons. Once a condition or spell effect is chosen, it can't be changed.

    ~Channel Positive Energy: When a paladin reaches 4th level, she gains the supernatural ability to channel positive energy like a cleric. Using this ability consumes two uses of her lay on hands ability. A paladin uses her level as her effective cleric level when channeling positive energy. This is a Charisma-based ability.

    Regardless of alignment, any cleric can release a wave of energy by channeling the power of her faith through her holy (or unholy) symbol. This energy can be used to cause or heal damage, depending on the type of energy channeled and the creatures targeted.

    A good cleric (or one who worships a good deity) channels positive energy and can choose to deal damage to undead creatures or to heal living creatures. An evil cleric (or one who worships an evil deity) channels negative energy and can choose to deal damage to living creatures or to heal undead creatures. A neutral cleric who worships a neutral deity (or one who is not devoted to a particular deity) must choose whether she channels positive or negative energy. Once this choice is made, it cannot be reversed. This decision also determines whether the cleric casts spontaneous cure or inflict spells (see spontaneous casting).

    Channeling energy causes a burst that affects all creatures of one type (either undead or living) in a 30-foot radius centered on the cleric. The amount of damage dealt or healed is equal to 1d6 points of damage plus 1d6 points of damage for every two cleric levels beyond 1st (2d6 at 3rd, 3d6 at 5th, and so on). Creatures that take damage from channeled energy receive a Will save to halve the damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the cleric's level + the cleric's Charisma modifier. Creatures healed by channeled energy cannot exceed their maximum hit point total—all excess healing is lost. A cleric may channel energy a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. This is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. A cleric can choose whether or not to include herself in this effect. A cleric must be able to present her holy symbol to use this ability.

    ~Spells (caster level=6th):  Beginning at 4th level, a paladin gains the ability to cast a small number of divine spells which are drawn from the paladin spell list presented in Spell Lists. A paladin must choose and prepare her spells in advance.

    To prepare or cast a spell, a paladin must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a paladin's spell is 10 + the spell level + the paladin's Charisma modifier.

    Like other spellcasters, a paladin can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Her base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Paladin. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Charisma score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells). When Table: Paladin indicates that the paladin gets 0 spells per day of a given spell level, she gains only the bonus spells she would be entitled to based on her Charisma score for that spell level.

    A paladin must spend 1 hour each day in quiet prayer and meditation to regain her daily allotment of spells. A paladin may prepare and cast any spell on the paladin spell list, provided that she can cast spells of that level, but she must choose which spells to prepare during her daily meditation.

    Through 3rd level, a paladin has no caster level. At 4th level and higher, her caster level is equal to her paladin level – 3.

    ~Divine Bond (su) (x2 day) (DH archetype ver.)

    ~Distant Mercy (sp) (DH ver.)

    ~Aura of Care (DH ver.)


    Spells (memorized, default):
    Orisons:
    ~Dancing Lights:
    School evocation [light]; Level bard 0, sorcerer/wizard 0
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S
    Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
    Effect Up to four lights, all within a 10-ft.-radius area
    Duration 1 minute (D)
    Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

    Depending on the version selected, you create up to four lights that resemble lanterns or torches (and cast that amount of light), or up to four glowing spheres of light (which look like will-o'-wisps), or one faintly glowing, vaguely humanoid shape. The dancing lights must stay within a 10-foot-radius area in relation to each other but otherwise move as you desire (no concentration required): forward or back, up or down, straight or turning corners, or the like. The lights can move up to 100 feet per round. A light winks out if the distance between you and it exceeds the spell's range.

    You can only have one dancing lights spell active at any one time. If you cast this spell while another casting is still in effect, the previous casting is dispelled. If you make this spell permanent, it does not count against this limit.

    Dancing lights can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

    1st:
    ~Faerie Fire:
    School evocation [light]; Level druid 1
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, DF
    Range long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area creatures and objects within a 5-ft.-radius burst
    Duration 1 min./level (D)
    Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance yes

    A pale glow surrounds and outlines the subjects. Outlined subjects shed light as candles. Creatures outlined by faerie fire take a –20 penalty on all Stealth checks. Outlined creatures do not benefit from the concealment normally provided by darkness (though a 2nd-level or higher magical darkness effect functions normally), blur, displacement, invisibility, or similar effects. The light is too dim to have any special effect on undead or dark-dwelling creatures vulnerable to light. The faerie fire can be blue, green, or violet, according to your choice at the time of casting. The faerie fire does not cause any harm to the objects or creatures thus outlined.

    ~Divine Favor:
    School evocation; Level cleric 1, paladin 1
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, DF
    Range personal
    Target you
    Duration 1 minute

    Calling upon the strength and wisdom of a deity, you gain a +1 luck bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls for every three caster levels you have (at least +1, maximum +3). The bonus doesn't apply to spell damage.
    ~Bless Weapon
    ~Protection from Chaos/Evil

    2nd:
    ~Darkness:
    School evocation [darkness]; Level bard 2, cleric 2, sorcerer/wizard 2
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, M/DF (bat fur and a piece of coal)
    Range touch
    Target object touched
    Duration 1 min./level (D)
    Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

    This spell causes an object to radiate darkness out to a 20-foot radius. This darkness causes the illumination level in the area to drop one step, from bright light to normal light, from normal light to dim light, or from dim light to darkness. This spell has no effect in an area that is already dark. Creatures with light vulnerability or sensitivity take no penalties in normal light. All creatures gain concealment (20% miss chance) in dim light. All creatures gain total concealment (50% miss chance) in darkness. Creatures with darkvision can see in an area of dim light or darkness without penalty. Nonmagical sources of light, such as torches and lanterns, do not increase the light level in an area of darkness. Magical light sources only increase the light level in an area if they are of a higher spell level than darkness.

    If darkness is cast on a small object that is then placed inside or under a lightproof covering, the spell's effect is blocked until the covering is removed.

    This spell does not stack with itself. Darkness can be used to counter or dispel any light spell of equal or lower spell level.

    ~Bulls Strength:
    School transmutation; Level cleric 2, druid 2, paladin 2, sorcerer/wizard 2
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, M/DF (a few hairs, or a pinch of dung, from a bull)
    Range touch
    Target creature touched
    Duration 1 min./level
    Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)

    The subject becomes stronger. The spell grants a +4 enhancement bonus to Strength, adding the usual benefits to melee attack rolls, melee damage rolls, and other uses of the Strength modifier.

    ~Resist Energy:
    School abjuration; Level cleric 2, druid 2, paladin 2, ranger 1, sorcerer/wizard 2
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, DF
    Range touch
    Target creature touched
    Duration 10 min./level
    Saving Throw Fortitude negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)

    This abjuration grants a creature limited protection from damage of whichever one of five energy types you select: acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic. The subject gains resist energy 10 against the energy type chosen, meaning that each time the creature is subjected to such damage (whether from a natural or magical source), that damage is reduced by 10 points before being applied to the creature's hit points. The value of the energy resistance granted increases to 20 points at 7th level and to a maximum of 30 points at 11th level. The spell protects the recipient's equipment as well.

    Resist energy absorbs only damage. The subject could still suffer unfortunate side effects.

    Resist energy overlaps (and does not stack with) protection from energy. If a character is warded by protection from energy and resist energy, the protection spell absorbs damage until its power is exhausted.

    3rd:
    ~Prayer:
    School enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting]; Level cleric 3, paladin 3
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, DF
    Range 40 ft.
    Area all allies and foes within a 40-ft.-radius burst centered on you
    Duration 1 round/level
    Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance yes
    You bring special favor upon yourself and your allies while bringing disfavor to your enemies. You and each of your allies gain a +1 luck bonus on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saves, and skill checks, while each of your foes takes a –1 penalty on such rolls.

    Griffons are powerful aerial predators, swooping down from their high aeries to take their prey with beak and talon. Aggressive and territorial, they are no mere beasts, but rather calculating combatants and loyal companions to those who earn their respect, fighting to the death to protect their friends and kin.
    Weighing in at over 500 pounds and measuring 8 feet long from hooked beak to tufted tail, the griffon strikes an imposing silhouette that has long been used in heraldry and other iconography as a symbol of power, authority, and justice. In reality, the griffon is less concerned with abstract concepts than with hunting food and protecting its own. While they can sometimes be trained or befriended to serve as mounts, griffons have no inherent affinity for humanoids, and frequently come into bloody conflict with civilized races over their attempts to secure their favorite food—horse flesh. City folk may marvel at the trained griffon's stately manner and 25-foot wingspan, but those farmers forced to share territory with its wild kin know to hurry home and secure their barns when the beasts' hunting shrieks split the sky.
    Griffons mate for life, and will often search for years to take vengeance over a slain mate or child. It was likely this innate stubbornness and fierce loyalty that first brought them into domestic use as mounts and guardians of treasure hoards. Despite the inherent danger, trade in captured griffons and stolen eggs is brisk, with their eggs worth up to 3,500 gp apiece and live young twice that. Characters eager for griffon mounts, however, should note that buying or forcibly domesticating intelligent creatures like griffons is still recognized as slavery by most good deities, and winning a griffon's allegiance of its own free will is no easy task. Reaching a mutually agreeable accord (or even a friendship) is a much more elegant and safe route to securing a griffon mount.
    Before it can be ridden in combat, a griffon requires practice bearing the weight of its rider. In order to be trained successfully, a griffon must first be helpful toward its trainer (possibly requiring a Diplomacy, Intimidate, or Handle Animal check). After that, 6 weeks of practice and a successful DC 20 Handle Animal check is sufficient for the beast to be comfortable with its burden, and due to their intelligence, trained griffons can be treated as knowing every trick listed in the Handle Animal skill description, possibly even responding to new, simple requests made in Common.
    Griffons can carry up to 300 pounds as a light load, 600 pounds as a medium load, and 900 pounds as a heavy load. Riding a griffon requires an exotic saddle.

    Oh yeah.

    I'm just waiting for feedback from Josh before I finish.

    Also, how much cash do we start with to buy gear and stuff?

    I found the answer in "getting started" thread:
    46,000 gp to start with (at 9th level).

    So, I'm only waiting for confirmation on my Dervish Dancer feat and how I can best go about getting my animal companion... I'm willing to multi-class with Cavalier, if I have to. Is there a feat or something I can use? Because the way Divine Hunter archetype works, I wouldn't normally get access to the paladin's bonded animal. Kinda whack. Hmm.

    Also, can Zaya speak Drow instead of Elven? Her back story is coming soon, (it's written, just still being revised). She was born in the Underdark as a captive, but was rescued and raised on the surface world. She's a drow slayer (she enjoys hunting and killing them), so she should know their lingo.

    Rob: I'll look up that feat by tomorrow and let you know (just got back and I'm dog tired). If it's on the SRD and not on the PRD, I'm reluctant as that would open up all their player created feats for everyone and that could get out of hand.

    as for the Griffon, if you really want one, you could take one as a cohort with Leadership (I don't care about leadership if it's used in this manor). I would also be willing to allow some modification so that it knew tricks, accepted you as it's friend and ally, maybe even had some gear, etc.

    If you want to sacrifice you're bonded weapon for a mount, that's your choice and I don't think that it's unreasonable.

    IF you wanted to take 4 levels of Cavalier, you would get the Expert Trainer Class feature and then qualify for the below feat:

    Horse Master (Combat)

    You blend horsemanship skills from disparate traditions into a seamless mounted combat technique.

    Prerequisites: Expert trainer class feature (Advanced Player's Guide 33), Ride 6 ranks.

    Benefit: Use your character level to determine your effective druid level for determining the powers and abilities of your mount.

    Normal: You use your cavalier level to determine your effective druid level for determining the powers and abilities of your mount.

    if your intelligence is high enough, you can select additional languages equal to your Int. bonus. You can also throw points into Linguistics for additional languages.

    ok, I looked at Dervish Dance... I have no problem with you taking that.  Seems a bit expensive for the damage bonus given how many pre-req feats it has.

    Weapon Finesse with a rapier is nearly as good and far cheaper... but it's all you man.

    You're right, it IS expensive, but the +5 damage is worth it IMHO. But I will look at Rapier too. Or a longsword...

    The primary concept of the character is "ranged striker" so hopefully she won't have to do much slicing and dicing.


    And Leadership feat for the animal companion is cool. I'll probably go that route.

    I get ya... remember that your Smite Damage applies to anything evil (though just one target at a time) and can be applied to any weapon.

    The Griffon stats are in the Bestiary. Read the background on how they sometimes get captured, it could work into your background?

    Another question, regarding armour:

    Does mithril shirt have any AC bonus in itself? If so, it isn't listed in the Core book. Can it stack with suit of leather armor?

    I've decided to forgo the breastplate since it negatively impacts Ride skill (which is my only Dex-based skill, which is again, kind of odd, since Dex is my highest stat). You would think Perform: Dance would be Dex based... Anyways, I figured mithril shirt might be a substitute.

    The rules for stacking armor piece-meal aren't very clear, in the core book anyways.

    the way I interpret this, since I have looked at it for my rogue and my sorcerer....

    This extremely light chain shirt is made of very fine mithral links. The armor has an arcane spell failure chance of 10%, a maximum Dexterity bonus of +6, and no armor check penalty. It is considered light armor.

    so it counts as a Chain Shirt which has a base +4 to AC, but with the modified other stats, it can then get +X to AC at additional cost

    I think the Elven chain and mithril plate has a similar description

    I'm not that familiar with the piece-meal armor and wasn't really planning on playing with it.

    the general rule is still that your highest armor bonus is the one you use. +4 for a chain shirt is better than leather armor so that's the number you would use. Otherwise, it's basically just extra encumbrance, you can always just say that leather is part of the chain shirt armor that you wear, it really shouldn't affect anything.

    One thing, I made mithril armor much cheaper for this reason... Mithril Breast plate would have a AC check penalty that is 3 better than normal (mithril is pretty awesome stuff) and it would only count as light armor (mithril also counts one armor grade lower: Medium = light).

    does that answer you're question?

    Yes it does, thank you.

    Still not sure yet if I'll take mithril breastplate over magic leather... Breastplate armor is okay, but for a female character, well, sometimes you just gotta let that cleavage breathe!

    It would be funny if Zaya got a bonus to diplomacy checks vs male NPCs for having a low-cut shirt. Zoing!

    infallible? hardly...

    I copied part of the thread and I think I'm ok with this... if you want an item like this, go ahead and buy it for half the price of the Goggles of Night (which are 12,000... so it will cost you 6000)

    "Called shaders, it's a piece of bamboo or wood with a thin slot carved out of it. Negates their light sensitivity but imposes a -1 penalty on Spot checks"

    sound good?

    Well, I DID kind of overlook the part from my earlier decision to say the Drow were rather unheard of unless you're a Dwarf. Goggles of Night are REALLY pricey though. I never liked the price of it either.

    I looked at the spell requirements and the group can chime in on this if they wish:

    Goggles of night only require Darkvision as a spell (2nd level Arcane). Cost: 12,000

    Goggles of Minute Seeing on the other hand requires True-seeing, which is a cleric 5, druid 7, sorcerer/wizard 6 spell. Cost: 1250

    Goggles of Night are hereby halved in price. (very tiny gavel is banged)

    Rob, your goggles/glasses, whatever can be half of that price.

    6000 is too steep at the moment. Spent most my cash anyhow. I guess I'll go without for now.

    For the record, it's not like they need to be magical. Something the equivalent of sunglasses, whatever that would be in your "Victorian era" styled game (I like the description of Shaders above), would be fine.

    for the record, I do think Rob's Griffon rider is a really cool idea.  I wouldn't object if he got a +1 level exception so he can have his Griffon.  I know it isn't up to me, but just saying that I wouldn't care if he got a little +pip Cool

    A griffon or any of those cohort monsters are honestly way less powerful than just a 7th level NPC

    I've already created a back story for the griffon, so can we keep it, puh-leeze?

    Pretty sure my character is done for the moment. Maybe you want to check my math.
    Back story should be posted this weekend.

    Couple more adjustments:
    8 pts from Favored Class= +5 HP, +3 Skill pts (Perception)

    I removed "Seeking" from long bow to pay for Shaders. Still have 250 GP left, which will go to the church, so long as I'm all good on supplies. I think I'm done with stats, for now.
    Bio is coming soon.

    Rob, as I'm writing stuff today (finally got off my ass to do this) I'm finding that I need your thoughts on how you want your guy to operate.

    I'm envisioning basically the remnants of once mighty holy orders. Knights Hospitaler or Templar on a much smaller (and less influential) scale. I'm pretty much open to whatever god/goddess you want to serve but I'd like to keep the sort of organization along those lines... sound ok?

    That sounds good. I figured that she worked for a holy order of some kind. Envisioned it as a sort of sisterhood of knights, but whatever you decide is fine. I also picked Eristil, an LG deity from PF's default pantheon. Again, whatever you decided is the LG god in your campaign is fine.

    Here's her background (in a nutshell):

    Before she was even a thought in the mind of her parents, Zaya's father (a human) was a militia captain in a rural village. One night, a party of drow slavers attacked and took many prisoners, including her father. In their dungeons, he was tortured and charmed by a wicked drow priestess. She seduced him with magic and became pregnant by him. It was her plan to use the baby in a sacrificial ritual to Lloth (or some demon lord). The baby was delivered and that was how Zaya came to be. She was born in the Underdark, a product of malice and wickedness.

    Zaya was given back to her father and he watched and cared for her in the drow dungeons. When she was 3 years old, the day of the ritual had finally come (it had taken awhile because the priestess had waited for a sacred astrological date that the ritual needed to be performed on). However, before the dark ritual could be carried out, a team of human and elves invaded, led by some valiant knights. They had tracked down the prisoners & slaves and freed them, though many died in the battle.

    Once they were free and back on the surface in their home village, Zaya was raised by her father. But his mental condition continued to deteriorate, due to the many tortures and spells he'd endured in the drow dungeons. Finally, when she was 8 years old, Zaya's father succumbed to madness and perished.

    Afterwards, she was adopted by the sisterhood of knights. The same ones that had rescued them from the Underdark. Zaya was raised on their devout teachings. She learned of the order and it's church. She studied long and hard to become a paladin and vowed to continue the battle against the drow. She endeavored to free their slaves however she could. All this time, Zaya also searched for her mother, a deep sense of vengeance burning inside her, but the drow priestess was never heard from again.

    yes, well that was the abridged version... Griffon's tale was omitted, for expediency. I'll put a full version up soon! Just waiting to hear back from Josh about what the specifics of divinity will be in his campaign... stuff like pantheons, knighthood and clerical orders. And then there is the drow nations. I know he said earlier that he wasn't really planning on using the drow much, that is, until I dropped my character concept. Notice how I left some stuff open for plot hooks and nemesis?

    I did notice. Then I thought to myself.... we are giving Josh too many extra bad guys! I have my nemesis wizard that I liberated the WF from as well.

    I'll probably just roll with this character... 4th level version. Zaya when she's younger and more ambitious, even zealous... and it would be previous to when she gains her griffin animal companion.

    not at this point. If this goes long enough, then possibly (I personally think those rules shouldn't be used for characters lower than 9th, but that's just me)
