Drop by and say hi :)

Taught on 3.0, learned 3.5. DMed 3.5 for many years and love it still.

Favorite variants: Spell points, prestigious character classes, sorceror metamagic specialist, racial paragon classes, cloistered cleric, paladin of freedom, complex skill checks, weapon groups, craft points and summon monster variants.

Anyone playing in my game knows: Think outside the box, fear the rakshasa, demons are never your friend and a party that can't find traps will more often than not die by them.

Favorite DnD aspects: Roleplay and character personality development, long spanning adventures that convey useful things (tree of life, chakras... meaning), inventiveness and ingenuity.

Method Actor You think that gaming is a form of creative expression. You may view rules as, at best, a necessary evil, preferring sessions where the dice never come out of the bag. You enjoy situations that test or deepen your character's personality traits.

Very nice, especially 2-4. I wonder if 5 wouldn't accomplish the 'undermining' danger people are warning me about, though?

Very interesting take. +1 I'll definitely be using this if I do pull this off. Yes - definitely for the PC successes, I intend to try it once and let them swiftly overcome the person playing them as pawns after they find out.

+1 that's fairly simple, which I like. I'm definitely noting your advice to consider it - you've brought up really good concerns.

k. Most of my players do go out looking for fights, unfortunately (for this purpose anyway)

+1 urgency. Also for the sabotage tactic. Any alternative to limiting the characters access to the town outside?

-1 there are many ways to reduce ASF, some of which are very good. Your broad generalization is ill-informed.

+1 spellsword is trumped by duskblade, too. At least class-feature-wise. But one level is very good for the purpose of nixing ASF. Also, there's some fort and BAB off that, too - not hateful for a spellcaster. Even the flavor-text prerequisite would fit well with this character concept, at least it seems to me.

Mithral breastplate (nonproficient) would have a -1 for strength and dex-based stuff, including attack rolls. I wouldn't go any further than that though. I'm a fan of battle sorceror for some characters but it also depends on the group and DM's power level. It does suffer mechanically as @KRyan mentioned. Welcome to the site!
