Hi Guys

Was hoping to get some of your expert assistance if I may!

I’m very new back to the system (after 25 years out!) and really don’t understand the non-standard submission bits yet. However as part of my donation to the club supporter’s fund, I’ve been told that I get a non-standard character class.

Ed (Kail) very kindly spent some time with me to put together a concept which I submitted to Lee but have been told that it’s too complicated for a single non-standard submission so I was hoping that you could guide me on the best way to achieve what I want and how to then split the submission to send to Lee for the best chance of getting it signed off!

Where I want to get to is this:

A non-standard race as a “Blizzard Elf – half air elf, half winter elf and chaotic good
Starts as a blue wizard
Gains winter elf and air elf innates
Can buy double and triple innates for each separately
Affirms may be cast into myself to heal - 3/3?
Follower of the lady of the stars
Despite being good, can multi class assassin - even the churches need some people disposed of!
May buy lay believer - lady of the stars
May buy true believer innates that give soul sharing - This also kicks in when I die and lasts 15 mins to give me a chance to be resurrected!

I was planning to then take multi-race to Immortal at some point - ultimately, I want to get to the point of only taking magic damage on a fun “jump in, stab, stab, jump out, blast, blast” kind of character, whilst still being useful to the party as a wizard

Any assistance gratefully received!

Thanks in advance.

Ben

My immediate thoughts on achieving this as a published spend are;

Be a Winter Elf - Blue Wizard
Multirace to aligned elf to get Air Elf stuff cheap
Use 7 and 8 slot to go magic only (published)

To go some form of goodly assassin there are many routes but I’d probably just buy Ley Believer and a one liner of May multiclass assassin at published cost but any abilities from assassin only work on evil...

Reckon that’s published everything you want with a 30pt non standard

To start with, points app “Blizzard Elf’ - gains half of winter elf and 1/2 of air elf innates. Is a blue wizard, but additionally may never acquire red mana. Only gains immune to cold after buying double innates.

The rest of it seems like a combination of a lay believer Lady of the Stars status, and maybe a temple assassin multi class. Or go Kallah Beggar (Gothiel) but without the warrior buy-as?

Ryan's approach is the easiest but uses your multi-race slot and is slow progress
Stuart's is the quickest (points-wise) and leaves you with some versatility in the long run

Both work well for what you are after

Going Pathfinder rather than assassin will get you everything you are after without the need of yellow paper and you can just role-play being an assassin (and taking the tendency "Temple Assassin") means you can legitimately call yourself an assassin if that is your desire

Finally, whatever you choose, as a new / returning player, get to know a few key guild members and lean on them for help with equipment. A broad plea will probably see envelopes of stuff left for you and if you adventure, make sure you set up a rescue service in case you die (asking a high level priest, like the one played by Will Power, to restore you off event, if you don't make it home)

LotS is a big church, so post on the church boards and as Davide said, you will be given a fair bit of equipment and help.
