    Yelsin the Wizard, only 4th level (campaign stopped due to RL issues). Primary feats were focused around crafting wondrous items, and making sure the rest of the party looked like the real threat. He knew he couldn't survive in a direct fight, so by making his allies stronger enemies would focus on them.

    Unfortunately the only wondrous item was a magically reloading gun pouch for the gun wielder in the party. So instead of the gun wielder having to use the spell Abundant Ammunition every battle (using up a 1st level spell slot each time), my character made a magical pouch that needed a command word, and the pouch would automatically cast the spell. Made the gunslinger's job of killing stuff much easier.

    Similarly, the spells he preferred to cast in combat were Mage Armor and Color Spray. Mage Armor would last a decent amount of time (and especially fun when cast on the Paladin about to get into melee), and Color Spray allowed him to try and deal with minions, so the fighters of the group didn't have the whole enemy force bearing down on them.

    Well, in a new Starfinder campaign, I'm playing a Yokai Mechanic and his drone Princess.
    Similar to Rocket and Groot in Guardians of Galaxy, except I'm not as murderous.

    Mat and Wraith, are you guys impressed by the bronze figures from HeroForge? I love their service and have plenty of plastic ones from them, but I'm wondering if the price tag is worth it.

    Dragao, I think the price tag is worth it provided you're printing a beloved character or a character you anticipate playing for a long time. The artist I commissioned actually posted his thoughts regarding the bronze mini here:

    I decided to go with the metal mini because the plastic miniatures I've purchased from Heroforge are a bit too fragile for my taste. If I'm going to commission someone to paint a mini professionally, I want the mini to be able to last. The bronze miniatures also don't seem to have the 3d printing lines the plastic ones do because they're made a different way.

    Cool minis! I love the paint job you did on the kobold's shield emblem.

    Thanks, Mat! An artist friend of mine painted them for me. Taranis was my first Pathfinder character and also my WoW character back in the day, so he definitely has some sentimental value worth the cost. Given your recommendation, I'll probably recreate him in bronze sometime in the near future. HeroForge is constantly adding new stuff, so I'll wait until I can tweak him to look more like I've imagined him. Right after I ordered the plastic mini, they finally came out with a full beard that didn't make him look like a dwarf, lol.

    For me, definitely. I love my bronze figurine. I collect a lot of mini's and having one that is high quality that I (kinda mostly) designed is awesome. It's great to make a hard to get character custom printed. The bronze is a step above, ensuring durability and looks beautiful.

    @Mat: Haven't finished the paint job on the mini's. They look funny in the flat black imho. I totally agree with your points though. I very happy and if I have another character I find that I'm as attached to, I will definitely get another mini in bronze.

    I have started using them regularly for characters that are just darned hard to find as well, even for some NPC's. Like good halfling figurines.

    Sadly I've not been able to play very far in the Kingmaker campaign, but in an evil version I have a half-elf flagbearer cavalier / bard named Alexandar Iskar who is going the route of the battle herald. So far pretty much every ballsy ploy he's made (in and out of battle) has been an overwhelming success. It's been pretty hilarious.

    Even if mounted combat won't work, I'm hoping the battle herald PrC will be an option in the game at some point.

    Elisandra, aka "Eli"
    Halfling Female Gravewalker Witch Jinx with the Childlike feat.

    Eli's full name is Elisandra, and she is far from the innocent little girl
    she appears to be. She isn't even human.

    Elisandra was born almost three decades ago in Cheliax to halfling parents
    as a slave. While not particularly awful for a halfling, her initial
    upbringing was not exactly a happy one either. Life as a slave rarely is.
    Wanting a better life for their daughter, her parents took her and tried
    to escape from their masters shortly before her coming of age ceremony,
    after which she would otherwise have been eligible for sale. The attempt...
    ended badly. Not knowing much about the outside world of Cheliax, they
    were quickly found. Eli hid as her parents were executed on the spot for
    their defiance. She would have been put down as well, if not for her
    unusual circumstances. Unusually tall for a halfling and soft of feature
    meant she looked a great deal like a human child instead of a halfling
    adolescent, and though she didn't understand why at the time, people around
    her always seemed to have bad luck.

    Living on the street, she learned to combine those traits together and
    actively pretend to be a human child, spinning up stories about being lost
    or afraid to meek out what little sympathy the people of demon infested
    Cheliax had to offer. She spent several years lying and stealing from
    whoever it took in order to survive, never staying in one place too long
    out of fear that someone might see through her disguise. She was still a
    halfling in Cheliax, and she was quite certain after what had happened to
    her parents of what they would do to her if anyone ever found out what she
    was. Sometimes they found out anyway, and well, she did what she had to
    do to protect herself. Life on the streets of Cheliax isn't easy, and
    you don't get through it without some blood on your hands. On the rare
    occurrence of getting caught, the crocodile tears and stories about
    "the bad man wanted to hurt me" fooled the authorities long enough for her
    to slip away. Even in a place as cruel and dark hearted as Cheliax, few
    people were awful enough to suspect a small child of being a murderer.

    The turning point came one day while digging through garbage looking for
    food when she found a stuffed doll. Her first thought was that it looked
    to be in good enough shape that she could probably sell it for a few
    coppers, but that changed as soon as she picked it up. No sooner had she
    lifted the doll into the air then someone whispered her name behind her.
    Dropping the doll and whirling around, no one was there. Unnerved, she
    reached for the doll again, to grab it and run, and she heard the voice
    again. It still sounded like it was coming from behind her, but she had
    her back to a stone wall... It was then she realized that the whispers
    were somehow coming from the stuffed toy, even if they didn't actually
    seem to originate from it directly.

    She told it to be quiet until she could get back home, or at least back
    to the vacant hole in a wall she was currently calling home, where she
    felt she could talk without being overheard. The doll whispered things
    to her, promises of power and a way off the streets. Elisandra was no
    fool, she wouldn't have gotten this far if she had been. When strange
    glass eyed dolls start whispering to you in the back alleys of Cheliax,
    something dark and evil is afoot. But... it was also an oppertunity.
    If it could give her a way out of this almost literal hell, why not take
    it? Of course it wanted to use her for something, but she wanted to use
    it as well.

    A deal was struck, and a new witch was born. The thing in the doll
    never did tell her what it's name was, but Mr. Bear as she came to call
    it delivered on his end of the bargain. It augmented her jinx powers,
    granted her magics beyond her kin, and helped perfect her persona of Eli,
    the lost little girl. With Mr. Bear's help, Eli managed to cross the
    boarder out of Cheliax, and finally had her freedom. She could have
    left Mr. Bear in a trash heap, but found that she had grown rather
    accustomed to the power he provided, and though he often whispered for
    her to do terrible things, he seemed powerless to actually compel her to
    do anything she didn't already want to do.

    Her parents had done their jobs, Elisandra had a well installed moral
    center, if only slightly warped by her time on the streets. While fully
    willing to lie, cheat, and steal whatever it took to get by, she drew
    the line at actually hurting anyone she considered innocent. She
    remembered living a hard life with her parents as a child, the abusiveness
    of her old masters, and wouldn't want to wish that on anyone else. She
    may convince them into giving her free room and board just to slip out
    again before they realize what happened, but she wasn't going to cause
    them any actual pain or hardship, no matter what Mr. Bear whispered in her
    ear.

    However... not everyone is innocent. Those that would try to hurt her,
    to steal from her, or worse... those she has no qualms about hurting back.
    And Mr. Bear does have such... creative ideas about what to do with them.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
