Searching for a new character to toy with outside from the core of PFRPG (so far I have only used the Alchemist) I found myself re-reading Garrg's Oradin Mini-Guide
. As my focus was to try APG base classe I ended up trying to build a "gish" flavored Oradin. That is, taking more than the minimum level in oracle and by choosing the Warrior of the holy light paladin archetype, therefore leaving the oracle as sole caster.
First dilema I had was wich race to choose. Boring old humans, always a good choice for anything. Half-elf, since I'm going to push Oracle a bit more might as well have both class favored for the extra HP. I finally chose the gnome as it was a healty pick and it was shaping my concept into something a little more concrete fluff-wise.
Here's what I've got so far up to level 9
Gnome male Paladin 5 (Hospitaler & Warrior of the holy lighr) / Oracle 4
STR 10 (-2)
CON 19 (+2, +1)
DEx 16 (+1)
CHA 16 (+2)
LVL 1 Fey Foundling, Anatomist, Rapscallion
LVL 2 Life Mystery, Clouded vision, Life link
LVL 3 Weapon finesse
LVL 4 +1 DEX
LVL 5 Mercy : Sickenend, Toughness
LVL 6 Revelation : Channel
LVL 7 Extra Lay on Hands
LVL 8 +1 CON
LVL 9 Divine bond (Mount), Extra Channel (paladin)
Now I have a few options. Do I keep up alterning Paladin and Oracle levels ? Then should I switch to Half-elf for the extra HP ? That would be refluffing from the ground up. Do I take a PrC ? Hellknight is what I had in mind but mechanicaly speaking it seams pointless.
Also I originally built this little guy with THF in mind (a small Earthbreaker still does 1d10 dmg) but switched to a rapier w/ weapon finess. I really dont want to go TWF since it would eat up a lot of feats.
