    If the mithral plate is the wrong shape for Suga, perhaps it would be possible to take it to a smith to be refitted? I mean the material is there, and both dwarves and orcs are Medium sized.

    Quick refresher on the vest:

    Zughan's Novice Iron Heart Vest allows access to any three of:

    • Absolute Steel (req: 1IH) +10 speed. Move at least 10' and gain +2 to AC for the turn
    • Disarming Strike (no prereq) like Improved Disarm
    • Iron Heart Surge (req: 1IH) remove an ongoing effect
    • Punishing Stance (no prereq) +1d6 damage, -2AC
    • Steel Wind (no prereq) two melee attacks vs different tgts as one std action
    • Steely Strike (no prereq) +4 to hit, others gain +4 to hit you
    • Wall of Blades (no prereq) block an attack
    • Exorcism of Steel (req: 1IH) attack their weapon to give them penalties


    Celesta or Feagon would be my vote.....Tarak took the Ring.

    Celesta would probably make use of any of them using the 2H axe, though I'd recommend against Steely Strike and Exorcism of Steel when compared to the others. Punishing Stance to me tends to be a trap like power attack. I think it's better to hit and not get hit in return. We just haven't had anything good for Feagon, so maybe most of the gold goes to Feagon? I'm game for that.

    You can switch the maneuvers currently granted by spending five minutes exercising and medidating. However, for the moment, you don't really have any options; there are only three maneuvers each of you except Suga qualify to use. The wearer of the ring has Moment of Perfect Mind, Sapphire Nightmare Blade, and Stance of Clarity, and the wearer of the vest has Punishing Stance, Steel Wind, and Steely Strike.

    When you're level six, you'll also be able to choose from the maneuvers (for the ring) Action Before Thought and Emerald Razor, and (for the vest) Disarming Strike and Wall of Blades.

    No worries. I think it makes the most sense to give it to Celesta or one of the other melees.

    Ok, if it's ok with you, Celesta will take the vest then. She is a tank with low AC to begin with, so I think Punishing Stance will work for her juuust fine.

    Looks like 4875gp total. I'm good with Feagon getting all of it, compared to the nice toys the rest of us have gotten, or at least my share too. A magic bow would open up weapon crystals. Keeping the rest of us fools alive is a tough job too.

    Couldn't agree more! Doesn't even have to be an expansive list of items nor fancy. Heck 4 grand could buy a nice +2 enhancement on that mithral chain shirt :)

    I agree that Feagon can have the gold.

    As for Celesta, what were the items she got again?
    The Iron Heart Vest was one (how heavy is it btw?), and Suga gave her a Chain shirt +1 after taking the plate armour.
    Was there anything else?

    I also noticed that Celesta has been carrying around a chain shirt that is either magic or masterwork (taken from some enemy I believe).
    If that has not been accounted for, we should also have changed for coin. (Unless it's better than a +1, which I doubt.)
    Also, her old Studded leather +1 armour could be sold as well.

    Celesta Halla, a fearless barbarian.

    I frankly don't recall where she got the mw/magical chain shirt from. Tarak can try to identify it, if it is something we haven't already accounted for. The +1 leather can be converted to coin and dumped in the party treasure.

    It might be wise to get a +1 enhancement on Feagon's composite longbow and Celesta's spear.....would certainly help the party against opponents with damage reduction. Now that I think of it, if Tarak had the Strength Devotion feat he could get around DR/Hardness as well....hmmm, how do you feel about the retraining rules Kish? I don't know that I would actually do it, Strength Devotion is a pretty niche.

    Celesta got Ulf's +1 dwarven waraxe. Char sheet just not updated yet.

    Strength Devotion feat? Suga could train you in the ways of the Warblade so you can take Mountain Hammer and a handful of other moves. See how many different classes Tarak can dip?

    Ahhhh....that's good.

    We should definitely get Feagon's longbow enchanted, then blow a bunch of money on situational scrolls.

    I went and refreshed my memory about the Strength Devotion feat after posting.....it's even more confusing than I remember! Adamantine +2 fists sound kind of cool though, even if I'm not certain that's how it works

    So Celesta can use it, with both hands.
