6/4/10 Anti-Palidan/Blackguard/Ghost Faced Killer
Orog
Chaotic Evil

Str 22
Dex 8
Con 14
Int 14
Wis 8
Cha 18

would normally only have 28 skill points at 10th, need 30

1 - Antipalidan 1 Power Attack, Concentration 4
2 - Antipalidan 2
3 - Antipalidan 3 Cleave
4 - Antipalidan 4 +1CHA
5 - Antipalidan 5
6 - Antipalidan 6 Improved Initiative, Hide 6, Intimidate 8
7 - BlackGuard 1
8 - BlackGuard 2 +1CHA
9 - BlackGuard 3 Divine Might, Move Silently 6(cross class), Taunt 10
10 - GFK 1
11 - GFK 2
12 - GFK 3 +1CHA Weapon Focus Scimitar/Imp Crit Scimitar/Force of Personality
13 - GFK 4
14 - GFK 5
15 - GFK 6 Knockdown
16 - GFK 7 +1CHA
17 - BlackGuard 4 taunt 20
18 - GFK 8 Improved Knockdown
19 - GFK 9
20 - GFK 10 +1CHA


CHARISMA bonus gives you
+2 to all saves
+1 to will saves when you have a slot for Force of Personality
+1 round of Divine Might divine damage
+1 damage divine might, frequently doubled by high crit scimitar
+1 DC Frightful Attack (already +4 DC due to ANtiPalidan Fear Aura)
+1 Taunt Check (up to -6 targets AC/30% spell failure for 5 rounds), Use taunt to set up
knockdowns which give you your sneak attack oppurtunities since you wont be sneaking much in heavy armor =)

this build has a little versatility in that it can create sneak attack oppurtunities with the
taunt/knockdown combo. Against sneak immune it uses Div Might with high crit weapon. You should carry an extra set of light armor when you intend to assassinate a target with Frightful Attack and use plate and Tower shield most other times.

you give up BG spells but they're not that hot in my usage. You really need any skill points you can get for stealth and taunt and maybe a little discipline.

in NWN2 might want to throw in some levels of Marshal for Art of War Discipline debuff. Drop to 4Antipalidan/3Marshal to avoid XP penalty and lose 10th level of GFK pre-epic. Between your IMP Knockdown, high CHA taunt, and marshal aura, your opponents will spend most of thier time on thier arse taking sneaks. Use a Large size model like ogre for more fun.

One problem with this build is AP Fear Aura is hard to use. It counts as an attack, dispelling stealth. The set up scenario looks something like this:


Turn on Power Attack (advise lowest level, you dont wanna miss after all this work)
Swap into some armor you can sneak in
Approach target(s) with AP Fear Aura on and make sure they are debuffed
use Ghost Step
Use stealth (ghost step is best used with stealth to buy more time, works just like HiPS)
Use healing kits to heal damage taken while waiting for Ghost Step to kick in. Healing kit does not dispel stealth
Make sure power attack still on
Check targets resistance and make sure not immune to fear (and preferably has weak will saves i.e. melee type)
Attack debuffed target that cons lower level than you (Frightful Attack only works on targets weaker than yourself)

A lot of work to kill something weaker than you anyway

This is also a little tough unless you have crafted some plate mail with no skill penalties and/or wear stealth boosting gear. I carry two sets of armor, one heavy, one light, I'm an Orog its not like it encumbers me =)

For what its worth this is my "base" div might build. I use 6/4 AP/BG or 6/7 AP/BG (if third PRC requires 3rd or 4th level divine casting) on just about every CHA based build and it works pretty well with all of them:

antipalidan/blackguard/thrall of Orcus 6/4/10 (unbelievably powerful)

antipalidan/blackguard/SOULEATER 6/4/10 (gets UMD cross class which is CHA based)

antipalidan/blackguard/Fist of Hextor 6/4/10 (fear abilities stack alignment change required)

antipalidan/blackguard/Ravager 6/4/10 (fear abilities stack)

antipalidan/blackguard/Champion of Bane 6/4/10 (possibly best possible saves in game, alignment change required)

antipalidan/blackguard/disciple of baalzebul 6/4/10 (+4CHA bonus,4d6 sneak, UMD as class skill)

antipalidan/blackguard/Initiate of Draconic Mysteries 6/7/7 5/10/5 5/5/10(Fantastic saves, Fearful Prescence stack)

antipalidan/blackguard/Ocular Adept 6/4/10 (fantastic DC's on rays when CHA based)

antipalidan/blackguard/Warchief 6/4/10 (+6CHA, high level cohorts, ref/will saves)


antipalidan/blackguard/Marshal 6/7/7 (great saves, can choose aura to boost any save by CHA bonus)

antipalidan/blackguard/Iaijutsu Master 6/4/10 (few spare feats but Iaijutsu CHA based)

antipalidan/blackguard/talontar blightlord 6/7/7

antipalidan/blackguard/Black Flame Zealot 6/7/7
