Okay so the idea here is just for someone that was really really speedy, without much thought going into maintaining that speed (ie no need to constantly recast speed-based spells)... as you can guess the ONLY way to do that in Aenea is to go for a Monk/Cleric of Gort mix... In playtesting I found that a minimum of 10 Cleric levels are needed for the item I wanted to use, but for the purposes of a little maximisation and "character development" I decided to add in a few Ftr levels and some more Cleric then required... the build still needed to be "playable for my style of play"... and of course FUN for me to play.. but I guess a true Trailblazer would be a Monk 30/Cleric 10 mix...

I'd love to get some Dev-critedness into the build but without Lady Shea there isn't a chance to raise Str to requirement whilst keeping a good AC from dex...

Colour/appearance wise, I went for yellow-browns and golds for her, She trained with the golden feather monks after all.... and if you see her she'll be protecting those glowing eyes and drow complexion with yellow-tinted glasses and a good rimmed cavaliers hat Smile

Anyway ....

* Weapon Proficiency (Simple)
* Turn/ Rebuke Undead
* Divine wisdom based spell, no ASF (not that it would matter in this build anyways!)
~ Gort Clergy Properties (No need for sustenance for rest)

** Although this gives the ability of armour, Val is actually worse off for wearing armour as she will loose all her monk abilities (including BAB, Wis armour, Dex armour and Monk feats~ inc speed I believe)

* Weapon Proficiency (Martial)
^ Weapon Focus (Kama)
- Power Attack

** Although cleave is granted by monk level 1, power attack is needed to acquire Great Cleave later (and I like Gt.Cleave)

% Int
* Deflect Arrows

* Monk Speed Increase (10%) ((# = 10%))
* Still Mind

* Charge
^ Weapon Finesse
- Great Cleave

** Weapon Finesse taken to maximise that dex boost for attack with a kama/unarmed attack

* Improved Knockdown
# = 20%

% Dex
- Mobility

-Spring Attack

% Dex

- Improved Two Weapon Fighting
** ITWF here gives us 10 attacks a round !!

~ Granted Spell III (Freedom of Movement)
~ Gort Clergy properties (Able to wear the Perma-haste Wanderers Boots !!!)


- Metamagic: Extend Spell
** Although there are a wealth of other options here, I decided on this as most of the clerical spells are duration based enhancements (like divine power, bull str etc, darkfire) and this gives them that extra bit of flexability/usabilty...

% Wis

~ Granted Spell IV (Teleport) ... ... what "speedster" shouldn't be able to instantly zip anywhere !?!
** Able to cast lv7 spells (of note are Regenerate,WoF and an Extended Greater Sanc!!)
** Last Clr level so max out Spellcraft (not class for monks) Spellcraft 30

*Level-up Granted
**Addition Level-up Notes
%Ability Increase
~ Clerical Feat
- Picked Feat
^ Ftr Bonus Feat
# Monk Speed Bonus

By far possibly not the most powerful build, but she certainly puts up a good fight... and running across Aenea's vast open plains has never been quicker.. .. my "overland mappe" was mapped whilst I was leveling this PC and needless to say sometimes I found it easier to run somewhere then use a portal/tp ..lol... ... she can get from the SDI to Sal's before the sun can even damage her (sometimes!)...

She is also the only PC I have NOT designed a custom-item weapon for... she only has ONE custom item, a tp-rod-like-item.. which is unusual for me (it might change in the future).. this is because the +5 dual-wielded Kama's at a "natural" 10attacks/rd were just giving out so much damage that most enemies just fell too quickly for me to bother designing one (or two)!!.... Currently she's wearing the rare Robe of Four Lives (from Aenea's 4th birthday celebration) and has one standard crystalled/BoM'ed Kama and one Dragon-Slaying Kama ... also a Gt.Dex Belt and Deft Hands Ring ... .....

Yet again she currently has no semiclass yet, I think, I didn't check... and due to my pack-rat nature she slows to a crawl unless I have a Str boosting ioun + str gloves!!

So anyways ... What do you think ?
