Xander .....ME!!
Okay I'm bored and looking for something and I'm sure I can get help for it here.

I have and idea for a pair of characters that I'm one. not to sure how to make and two. to lazy to make ^^; SO! Im not asking anyone to make a characters just some friendly advice.

Character one.
He is the deadliest of the two.
A Neutral Evil epic level bard.
Basiclly I want this man to be a wolf in sheeps clothing. A very sick and twisted individual that could charm the pants off of you, and once he starts playing his music by the end of the song no one is left alive (uh he's kind of an assassin I probably should have mentioned that. Though I really don't want to give him any assassin levels ><)
All in all I'm looking for a very deadly bard. One that if you know of this man you will shit your pants if you see him beginning to play his instrument.

Character two.
I would like a monk that is a master of staffs. Anything that can be done with a stick as a weapon this man should be able to do. Be it throw them use two at a time, or even use anything that could be used as a stick as a deadly weapon. This character travels with the first and is neutral in alignment. He shouldn't be epic level however being the younger of the two, though he is close. And I realize for something like this it would make more sence to choose the fighter class for the extra feats but I would really like this man to be a monk.

Well anything you guys can do with these two concepts feel free. And lets me know of any changes that should be made.

Thanks

Well I don't know how to make the bard assassin like if there aren't any levels in assassin, unless he was able to use a power word kill somewhere in the lyric of his songs so that anyone who heard it would have to make a save or die, now maybe make him like an Incubus or something with a high ass Cha to charm the pants off of people. And with the Monk to be a master of sticks just get him up to weapon specialization staff and maybe ambidexterity and two weapon fighting if you want him to dual weild.

Just TWF in 3.5. Ambidexterity went the way of the dodo.

Weapon specialization requires one to be a 4th level fighter.

Assassin Bard- Use music to charm an audience, and then put them to Sleep.


For your "Monk"- A monk must be Lawful, neutral in alignment would make him Lawful Neutral. That's a minor point.

For his mastery of staffs, look to Complete Warrior for the Weapon Style feats (Chapter 3, Supplimental Material. ;D S'in the back of the chapter) There is a Weapon style specifically for Quarterstaffs.

You very well may be better off giving him levels in Fighter and duplicating many of the things that Monks get, by using the bonus feats, rather than just giving him Monk levels, but that's up to you. Weapon Style feats. =D Gotta love 'em!

I made a Bard / Shadow Dancer that reminds me of your first guy. He would play his music and distract/fascinate everyone while his shadows would sneak up for the kill. And if he was caught or trapped, he would just vanish. He had very little direct combat ability, but he was nearly impossible to catch or kill.

I don't remember the exact level break down, but he was Bard primarily, with at least 1 rogue level and a bunch of SD.

Character One:
Consider the Sublime Chord prestige class to maximize a Bards power. Also, consider making him a half-elf for the half-elf only feats from Races of Destiny.

Character Two:
There's a weapon style feat for using a staff in Complete Warrior.

The feat is called Quick Staff, but I forget what it does.

If you want to maximize a bard's singing power, instead of his spellcasting power, try Seeker of the Song. Bardic music effects deal actual hit point damage (usually energy) and have a number of other effects, *and* have a save based on your Perform skill, not spell level and charisma. So that's pretty cool.

Something about increasing your AC (which, of course, Monks really need =P).

I'll have to read that class more closely. I've never really gotten into Bards, but the idea that you could have a Bard with 9th level spells appealed to my powergamer streak.

What, you never took Improved Spell Capacity three times as a high-level bard?

(La la la...)

Haha.

Can't say I have.

=P
