Megan Darkwood, of the free city DarkwoodsThis girl can lay down some serious smack!
Just don't make her loose her temper cus it only gets worse!
The build utalises the hybrid Sorcerer and Barbarian rules to its advantage, it has high defences for a striker, and can unleash a torrent of damage, just don't let your party get caught in the blast.
Basic premis of the build
Capitalise on Sorcerer's Rampage (16th level) and Sorcerous Rage (11th level) PP features
These will allow you to:
- Whilst Raging add +1d6 damage with a Sorcerer @will power
- Crit with a Sorcerer @will power on a 19-20
- and every time you crit you get to cast a Sorcerer @will power as a Free Action
- You can see where this is going can't you...
Megan loses her temper a lot, (Something to do with a TPK whilst her Aunts guardian angel wasn't there or something) when she does she unleashes arcane fury on anyone who opposes her. (she has 2 rages a day)
Megan's favorite spell is a (burst 2) thunder admixtures blazing starfall, she loves it when she rages... Plus with a little White lotus to add extra Umph. Cus she really hates it when people try and tell her to shut up, or tell her she is being loud, or worst still hit her!
Her Great Aunt Clover Darkwood left some lovely heirlooms especially a Defensive Quickbeam staff , with a siberys shard on the end (some off plane adventure loot)
So Megan's favorite spell is doing a modest 1d4 +26 damage,
- Plus if she's upset (raging) and additional +1d6
- Or if they are bleeding on the carpet, Bloodied +2 damage
All with in her nice and cosy burst 2 with in 10.
If any of those hits Crit, she gets to fire it off again, as a free action! Oh don't forget if she is angry she crits on a 19 or 20! with an additional +1d6 damage from executioners bracers.
Now occasionally Megan just can't help herself and she actually starts to hit people with her staff and push them around a bit (+1 sq distance, with forceful attribute of her staff)... which she is more than capable of doing... wielding her staff as well as her father's Master at Arms taught her... (he taught her other things as well, but thats another story) she can charge in to battle and gain a small bonus from her lover's vanguard longsword she carries (+1d8 on a successful charge).
Sometimes she can channel this rage into actually doing more damage for her and her friends (Rage of the War Bringer and Heartstrike), or shrugging off ill effects (shrug it off), she kind of forgets to pay head to some effects and channels that to do even more damage (Strength of Enduring Pain). If awkward people get too close and start to gang up on her she can handle herself really well, Leaping out the way with a thunderous leap (oh come on... Thunder Leap).
Her lovely hide armour, (a gift from her great great Aunt) plus barbarian agility coupled with her love of dragon magic (she's not totally beholding to it, as it's from Dragons). as well as her father's excellent Master at Arms training taught her to utalise her staff as defence as well as attack.Prerequisits of the build.
