New player Here. Short intro: I finally found a gaming group on my LGS thats willing to take in a complete newbie. My first game will be ready in a month and I'd like some help with my first character.
I'm Interested in playing a Human Sorcerer and after a bit of googling I found this little guide here: "The Mailman: A Direct Damage Sorcerer" by DeAnno
The build seems fun enough to play but I'd like a few changes:
- Add Archmage in the mix of classes with Master of Elements as high Arcana.
- Possibly Squeeze in the ability to use of Wands and Scrolls for buffing purposes.
- Possibly squeeze in master of counterspelling
- Still be good at talking to people
- Downgrade armor to robes
3 is optional but being able to reflect spells back sounds like a fun thing to do so it would be much appreciated.
We are going for a 32 point buy for stats and I dont really mind the alignment.
As for books, I have a full month to acquire everything needed so feel free use whatever books necessary to meet this goal.
I'm mainly interested in meeting these conditions for roleplaying purposes and I'd be lying if I said that I didnt want to play as a character similar to Xykon from order of the stick. My interest in getting archmage levels is for master of elements (using different elemental variants of meteor swarm, delayed blast fireball and chain lightning seems really appealing to me.) and also for roleplaying purposes (The fantasy equivalent of a highschool dropout having to go through magic college and write his magic thesis)
Again I'm fairly new so please point out the final skills/feats/stats at level 20 if its not too much trouble.
