Gestalt Help...Is Archivist without academic priest worth it?
As the title asks. I was going to go Archivist/Factotum in a gestalt game in which arcane classes are not allowed due to the plot, and run into a MASSIVE issue. The DM doesn't have the dragonlance books so I can't use academic priest. Without wisdom-boosting items, the most wisdom I can have with my rolls 1s 15. I could take a plus wis race to boost this, such as lesser Aaismar to boost that to a respectable 17, but that would mean I can't take a +int race(B/C all +int, +wis races have yucky LA) to boost my int from 17 to 19, meaning DCs and such will suffer. Thus, I am looking to all of you for advice. How can I save a Factotum/Archivist gestalt without academic priest? Will I be forced to take Lesser Aasimar or some other +wis race? Are bonus spells not nearly as important as I think them to be? Or should I forget archivist/factotum all together and just go Psion/Factotum or something? Any advice and help would be appreciated...
78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
Where did you start yours?
In one of the many palaces of the BBEG, with the PCs as his dining guests.
