I've been playing with my character's build for our upcoming Pathfinder game... and I decided to resist the urge to tweak myself an optimal character in favour of someone I wanted to play:
I've chosen a Halfling Sumoner. For the sheer joy of riding around on my Eidolon shooting things with a longbow. A small longbow. Meanwhile my trusty steed, Snapper, will be using his combination of natural reach and "trip" on his bite attack - and AoOs - to keep the Enemy at arm's length.
I've taken Enlarge Person as a spell, more for the fun of casting it on the other party member - a monk - than any other particular reason. Large monks have silly damage. Here are my statblocks, courtesy of the very handy PCGen:
hp 20 (3d8)+3
Fort +3, Ref +5, Will +4, +2 vs. fear
Ranged longbow (small) +6 (1d6/x3)
Melee spear (small) (two handed) +4 ((two handed) 1d6+1/x3)
Ranged spear (small/thrown) +6 (1d6+1/x3)
Space 5 ft.; Reach 5 ft.
Base Atk +2; CMB +2; CMD 15
Feats Armor Proficiency, Light, Martial Weapon Proficiency (Longbow), Mounted Combat, Simple Weapon Proficiency
We'll see how he fares on Thursday night!
