I am requesting help for one of two things here:
1) A main-tank type that relies on grace over brawn (i.e. Dex > Str), (hopefully) eventually becoming a Bladesinger. So gish-like with a concentration on BAB over caster level.
2) A secondary tank-Xxx hybrid, mad damage dealer. I’m attempting to work Duelist in there.
The interesting part here is I am somewhat limited to D&D 3.0 + Forgotten Realms supplements (as the GM does not like 3.5’s immediate and swift action types). He also likes the limited spells and the duration of the stat buffs, I guess.
I’m starting with the 3.5 Swashbuckler (anything 3.5 must be approved by the GM, so I’ve done due diligence here) as my base, just wondering where to go from there.
My two racial choices so far are Catfolk (+1 LA, 3.5) and Drow (+2 LA). So far, it looks as if Drow works best with #1 and Catfolk with #2.
For my 1st level feat as the Drow, it’s Light adaptation. For the Catfolk, I haven’t decided yet.
The stats work off all 10s and using 30 points on a point-for-point basis up to max (by race) and we are allowed 3 levels to work with.
My stats as yet: 12 Str, 18 Dex, 14 Con, 18 Int, 10 Wis, 12 Cha. I am somewhat of a skill hound, and also why I aimed for either the Bladesinger or Duelist build.
I'd like to see what options I might have available. Any and all suggestions welcomed and thanks very much for your time.
