    Default Need help with building a Rogue/Invisible Blade/Dread Commando

    Hi, I want to thank anyone who offers their advice before we start. Thank you!

    So, I'm going to be playing a Rogue for a campaign starting this summer, and I have a fairly good idea of the build I want to end up with. I've even planned out almost every single feat I'll be taking. What I humbly ask the playground's help to do is to improve upon my feat selection, and maybe suggest a few cool items. I do not want the character to become some super-OP monstrosity, I simply want it to be able to deal good damage in combat and be good at sneaking into and out of places (with a few stolen items to boot).


    The final build I'll end up with is going to be Human Chaotic Good 10 Rogue/ 5 Invisible Blade/ 5 Dread Commando (Heroes of Battle p103). These are the stats I'll be starting play with (They were rolled for), STR 14. DEX 17. CON 14. INT 15. WIS 12. CHA 15.

    The Invisible Blade is going to be the post-errata version with feint only being once per round and the full feat requirement for the entire build is going to be Dodge, Mobility, Weapon Finesse and Weapon Focus (any sort of dagger-like blade.). Im going to be taking the alternate class feature for Dread Commando, granting a 5% miss chance per level in natural terrain. So, does anyone have any neat feat combos they like to use for this or particular items they want to suggest? Thank you for any help offered!

    I'm craving a Film Noir-ish detective story with Chtulhu elements in personal horror-style. Gaming system irrelevant. Willing to co-dm / main-dm something but I prefer to play. PM me if you're interested or have any good ideas to base a story on.

    I will refrain from my impulse to point out a similar, but more effective build for a guerilla fighter. Feats...darkstalker, craven, twfing chain, if all of that can even be squeezed in. Items: collar of umbral metamorphosis, masterwork tools, skill boosters, blurstike weapon enchant, deadly precision weapon enchant, bracers of murder, warning weapon enchant, eager weapon enchant, scrolls/wands to UMD grease/glitterdust/greater invisibility/knock among others.

    You'll love Surprising Riposte (Drow of the Underdark), it makes opponents flat-footed for a round when you feint, getting around the 1/round limitation on Invisible Blade.

    So many of these weapon enchants and items I've never even heard of. Thank you, I'll be looking into them shortly!

    And thank you too Urpriest, again something I've never even seen or head of! Will be discussing that one with the DM, the abuse potential is through the roof.

    No problem. Just went over a few of my standard items for rogues. Some of them are found in Bunko's Bargain Basement or shax's indispensable haversack others are just good since you have UMD.

    Also, if your guy dies but you enjoy the ambush fighter type try out rogue4/ranger2/dread commando5/nightsong enforcer9. Simple, clean, good saves...aside will, and tons of fun.
