It's time to ride my train of thought again! Hold on, even I don't know if it's a one way or a circuitous clover leaf of madness. Caution, Do Not Read! Contains heavy content as well as flippant. feel free to skip to parts that take your interest. You have been warned.
"Feelings . . . thing about . . . uninspired inspiration."
was having trouble trying to develop a coherent post for you guys. And,
after consuming some new and old art (i.e. music, shows) I was reminded of a mind set I have often spoken in theatre. "To hell with the audience, this is for us."
Now don't get me wrong, as of right now and from the start, I love you
guys. As far as I can tell the bulk of you guys are friends or people
who found me interesting and stuck around, I very much appreciate that
and hold that interest close to my heart, thank you. But before I get
all mushy, I'm going to get to my point. Wait, no I'm not. I say "from
the start until now" because I wait with bated breath for my first
trolls and critiques, and though I may not like them, I am . . .
preparing myself, for brutal opinions and criticism.
Now for the
point. As with many things in life, dominantly art, but also in science,
labor and spirituality. It's best, most powerful. when you do it for
yourself. When the goal is fulfillment, enrichment, or plain honest
Hence the crazy dense random post. I'm writing because I
want this blog to be excellent because it's an outlet for me and I wish
to share the amalgamation that is my brain, because I like to tell
stories, share my brain AND it would seem many people have expressed a
desire to receive that. So, to the lovers and the haters, thanks for
reading, thanks for thinking. Oh, and PLEASE don't stop thinking.
Other thing I wanted to gab about.
Pathfinder/D&D character build.
I'm just going to blab about a build or two I'm cooking up and most
likely not going to explain too much or link to anything, I'm just going
to assume you know exactly what the hell I'm blathering about OR, you
can look it up yourself.)
I'm cooking up a build for a roguish,
rakish, dual wielding, dashing, snarky bastard only out for himself.
He's a Dansin, which means he needs to be able to detect magic, because
all Dansin's interact with the arcane through olfactory senses. In 3.5 I
could always burn my human feat on Insightful to give me detect magic,
read magic &/or mage hand. However, as of this posting I can't find
any feats that give me this sort of thing. I did think that perhaps I
could take Minor Magic rogue talent, but, you don't get rogue talents
till level 2. So, seeing as there are no restrictions on multiclassing, I
thought maybe taking my first level in Bard. Why bard and not sorcerer
or something, because I also had the idea that since he's a brash jerk
he might take Dazzling Display to intimidate his opponents.
specifically, I have this vision of him standing over dandies who
challenged him to single combat whom he then destroyed, wooing women
along the way. Glorious, right (slight sarcasm, but tell me if the
concept doesn't have some . . . romance)?
But! Then I also kind of
wanted to take Weapon Specialist variant because I intend for him to
dual wield a Brace (or 'Case')" of rapiers. I would have to take 4
levels of Wep. Spec. to get to the first perk, then 2 more levels of
Two weapon fighter, THEN, 2-5 levels of Rogue with Rake variant, ON TOP
of a level in Bard to get my Dansin traits. Pathfinder Society play only
goes up to level 12. Ive almost maxed out levels just trying to get to
the full build of my awesome character concept. Is it to broken?
there are no rules anywhere, so far, for a Brace of Rapiers AANNDD I
kind of want it to be a trick set where you can actually carry it on one
side and without a good perception check most people will think it's a
single rapier. So, I'll have to convince my DM's to use special rules
I've been cooking up using the Dual Katana Staff, Rapier, cane sword,
and weapon damage charts to come up with a good presentation.
that, I may have to keep two sets of gold tallies if a DM says No, and I
have to go traditional Two rapiers, or Rapier & short sword, or
And as a note, I WORE two rapiers just last Sunday,
it's not that uncomfortable, so I could totally do that, I don't
actually think it looked that goofy.
I had another
build or two planned, maybe even confess I FINALLY watched Firefly all
the way through, but then again maybe not. should be able to cook up
some sort of 3rd for th3 nerd before the end of the month. now it's just
rambling, less rant/idea sharing. I'll call it now, as it's been 12
hours since I started this post and I think I'm good. Hopefully things
will continue to not get worse. Wish me a swift recovery as I AM sick as
of the writing of this post. Night, H47ites!
