I like 2 and 3 but we're already pretty long on charismatic rogues. Now, a whole crew of charismatic rogues might be fun...
Ignore the misfire rules, though... they take too long to mess with and they don't really add anything fun to the mix.
Confirming - Defense Bonus and Armor Bonus don't stack, right?
I dunno; I haven't looked at those rules in a long time myself. But I believe you're correct that they do not.
EDIT: Yep, I just reread them and my interpretation is that they do not.
Besides; armor in a swashbuckling pirate game?
You are NOT going out in THAT, young lady!
Well... you did say your CHA was going to 12 or better, right? I've been to a few RenFaires in my day (have y'all tried the one out by Plantersville yet?) and I can vouch that they're not necessarily always appropriate...
Waxahachie is one of my favorite names.
Lash it is. Male Hobgoblin Fighter/Rogue of the 'thug' style.
So, I'm starting the very preliminary steps of statting out my character and had some questions...
- Hit points. Are we rolling for hit points for the 2nd level or just using max hit points?
