    Just a heads up, I'm remaking my char

    I'm going to be a bandit by the name of Totino DiGiorno, that goes by the moniker "Red Baron" 
    My calling card is that I ship myself to places in a large crate and when the time is right, burst out and scream, "Its not delivery, It's DiGorno!"
    Then I challenge them to a duel and ask what they want on their tombstone.

    Considering were traveling in caravan, I wonder how many opportunities you'll have to pull off delivery.

    But I say stick with the summoner.  When they stop looking away from the crate for a second, summon their own personal house party.  When they return there'll be monkeys.  3+cha monkeys everywhere.  Be sure to prepare 'Mount' in all your level 1 spell slots.

    See the Caravan works out perfectly tho.You just deliver me!

    But your plan contains monkeys, making it vastly superior...

    That spell is best spell. I'm thinking throwing in some unseen servants for poltergeist effects might also be nice... have one of them throwing around confetti or beans or somethings.

    But were you going for half-caster before the dice hosed your stats or something? Or did you just change your mind?

    @French:
    I demand Groot utilizes a different character sheet. That monstrosity is a pain to interpret. Even my excel was throwing up complaints like "wat dis formulae?"

    Ignore all the tabs and arrow over to the "Character Sheet I", "Character Sheet II", etc. at the bottom. Maybe it'll calm you down a bit. Razz

    So if I deleted every other sheet on the workbook and (if the OCD is strong enough) converted it to simpler file type, that'd be okay?

    EDIT:: Also, I'm not positive but I think your CMD is 11 (3 str - 2 dex + 10 base) rather than 14. That fighter AC and initiative... Sad

    His CMD is 12 and his CMA is 4. You add you attack bonus to both.

    Backstory:
    Trist was out training in the forest one day with her parents when her mother noticed something was off. She said she was going to investigate and shed be right back. Minutes passed when out of nowhere a scream shattered the peaceful silence of the forest. Remaining calm Trist's dad hid Trist and told her not to move, no matter what happened. Trist heard strange sounds coming from the direction her father had run off to. She would later figure out these were the sounds of battle. Another minute went by and the sounds faded. Trist was growing impatient and fearful as this new silence was unsettling. Choosing to ignore her father's orders she ventured out into the forest to find her parents. The impatience of not knowing where her parents were began to tear away at Trist's adolesent mind. She began crying out for them, screaming as loud as her lungs would allow her. Sounds from the nearby brush immediatly caught Trist's attention. She stared at it in fear, but then slowly approached it, "Mama? Papa?" A high pitch squealing was her only answer as a wild boar charged her. Trist flew face first onto the ground. She somehow found the strength to look up. Tears and blood now blocking her vision, but even so she could see the boar charging once more for the kill. She closed her eyes and in a last ditch effort screamed for help. Trist heard a loud roar followed by the squealing of the boar. Sounds of flesh being torn apart filled her young ears and then it was no more. With the last of her strength she opened her eyes and there a lioness stood over the now dead boar. As it approached her, Trist finally unable to bear her wounds passed out.
    Trist open her eyes to moving scenery. In total loss of words she brought herself up to a sitting position, suprisingly this was effortless. She placed her hands on the wounds that the boar had given her and they were no longer there. "I see you've awakened," said an unfamilar voice. Now looking towards the direction of this calming voice, Trist found herself staring at an older female human. The lady Trist now knows as Koya explained how she found Trist in a horrible position. The only reason Trist was still alive was because the lioness protected her and allowed Koya to heal her. Trist looked around and Koya pointed outside of the moving carriage and in the distance the lioness stood following the carriage never letting Trist out of her sight. Later this lioness would be known as Maki, Trist's new compaion.
    Koya asked what Trist was doing so far into the forest all by herself and Trist explained hown she came from a family of Druids and how she was with her parents. She explained how they had run off to find out what was amiss in the forest and had never come back. Koya already knowing the answer started shaking her head. She had only found Trist in the forest and no one else. It wouldn't be till several days later that members of the caravan would find Trist's parents. There bodies were badly burned and there flesh carved up by a manmade weapon. a 10 foot radious of the forest lay crisp around them. An evil aura unlike any other still lingered in the area and on the ground a message in abyysal lay. It read,"I'll be back for the girl." Koya kept this from Trist, fearing she wasn't capable of handling the truth at such a young age. Trist was insistant on being let back into the forest to look for them, but was never allowed. After much convincing Trist agreed to live with Koya and her family. It has been 5 years since that terrible day and now Maki and Trist our well accepted members of the "insert caravan name" and still to this day she knows nothing about her parents death.

    I had to rework my plans after a discussion with Elite (Rock's summon counts as a traveler, apparently its a no-no to ditch people in the wilderness to pick up more favorable NPCs, Sandru is a driver and never a guard), which is why this wasn't posted earlier.

    For convenience, this is the list of jobs that I understand our group to be capable of.  I use 'Monkey' for Rockem's mount 'cause I don't know its name.  Sorry, but I don't really get your character sheet.
    Job List

    Travelers
    The above is the setup I recommend.  Everything else in this post is just expository.  I use "Hunter" to refer to scouts that gather food and "Outrider" for scouts that provide security, except there aren't any outriders, ever.  That's because there's a max on scouts but not on guides (who are cheaper to hire), which do the same thing as outriders (they're pointless).  If you ever do see "Scout," it is of the hunter variety.  A few (preferably all) of us should put skill ranks into wainwright so we can repair faster without hiring waste-of-space wainwrights (they do nothing most of the trip).

    In terms of feat/stat selection for our caravan, I highly favor the defensive options.  Our caravan consists of our supplies and important NPCs, any form of loss could be highly detrimental.  Unless there are foes only our caravan can damage, we will quickly outpace (as in have already outpaced) its paltry d6+level damage (which takes significant investment in feats requiring X offense to pump.  Even by then the caravan offensives will really lag behind individual party members, at the expense of all else).  If we for some reason find some mega wagon-mounted cannon, the caravan can probably still put out a decent attack by just converting some travelers to guards (the feats aren't that strong).

    Feats/Stats picks
    Regarding the starting feat, Lucky Caravan and Extra Wagons seemed the strongest.  Circle the Wagons also looked good, but it probably should be passed up until later while our caravan's attacks still hurt things.  It would also require a defense of 3, delaying acquiring Extra Wagons.  I opted for the reroll since 2000gd just can't handle purchases of 3-4 wagons.  I made sure starting mobility was 3, however, so that we can pick it up as soon as it becomes feasible with our funding.  I put the other stat increase in defense so we can start heading towards Circle the Wagons (caravan AC is by far the hardest thing to increase) and Caravan Toughness.  The morale feats aren't really up to par, and only really help once we've maxed out our base caravan statistics/travelers bonuses.

    Discarded Setups
    My first build, edited a few times as I understood rules better.  It has worse stats than the other builds, but is 4 wagons (put the 3rd stat point into defense rather than mobility since we can delay extra wagons longer) and leaves a nice amount of extra money.
    carv

    A modification of the above, the idea of this build was to improve stats via hirelings/less hunters and use a supply wagon full of stores to compensate.  That didn't work so well, but it ended up having comparable stats to the recommend build with more money left over.
    1each

    An attempt at a "bare bones" 4 wagon build where there were no hirelings.  To properly do this, Rock would have to unsummon his friend while the caravan was moving.  The result is worse stats and no extra traveler capacity for NPCs on the road.  Barf build.
    nohires

    EDIT:: now that I think of it I mistakenly included Totino in the party count. Just mentally move him to hirelings and move the "hero" job from him to Elliot. At 1/5 the encounter treasure, he is burdensomely expensive. Optimally we'll trade him out as soon as we max out on spellcasters.

    Sry about that , my sheets are updated


    I've also updated my back-story so that I've known the party for a few years now. So I guess just mentally change any interaction with me so far that now would seem odd to the appropriate response. ( not knowing where i lived,  not knowing who i was, ect.)


    Bonus: They battle is the same one in  and my back stories


    Bonusx2: The murderous mod of halflings Killed thev's parents thinking they were mine.
    (I should have fully read  backstory first)


    happy?
    The're all just nicknames anyways...

Nothing out of the ordinary; most everyone was sleeping and Shalelu was out at her normal look-out spot. Grüt was told that elves didn't need to sleep like humans did. He didn't quite understand why, but he thought it was pretty cool. 'I wonder if she gets lonely at night...' Grüt felt he had been getting better at talking with Shalelu; he felt much more comfortable around her, but did she feel the same way?

    Shalelu probably heard him coming from as soon as he left the camp, but he was going to try and approach her anyway.

    We consume forty provisions a day, five of which are berries. Why Groot only ever gets berries is pure coincidence...
