3.5 D&D You Character RPG Questions & Discussions - Page 5 The Engineer says...
Indeed. We do have an item of concern though, there are just the three of us, and none of us are really suited to go on the front lines.
Give me another 5 levels, and if we somehow haven't been joined by someone by that point, I'll change out the feat I had in mind for then, and bloody well build us a substitute frontliner. A golem won't be as good as a true PC, and it would take a lot of money to keep it competitive, but it'd be able to take the hits for us all right.
But we have to find a way to make things work until then.
So… strategy discussion?
Crossbow is going to be my default go to for now, and depending on whether or not I have enough advance warning to apply a Bane infusion to the weapon, I'm going to go from great with it to only mediocre.
Support is my real game though, between making scrolls and spell storing infusions, I can supply you guys with any 1st level spell, on any spell list. Unfortunately, I can do so a lot less often than the people who could cast those spells naturally because it costs me xp and/or money every time I do it, and in most cases I will need at least a minute of advance warning. So yeah, while an awesome amount of flexibility, it needs to be saved for that one obscure spell that will save our arses, I can't keep up with true mages in terms of how often they cast per day.
