I am moving the discussion about RPing a Battlerager that was started under the Lore of the Lands forum to this one about Roleplay Ideas. That forum exists for sharing knowledge such as posting source material. Discussions about how to RP a PC are better discussed here.
In terms of what classes are currently available what is everyone's opinion on the best approach to emulate a battlerager?
My dwarven character Gulin Warbelch was created and more or less role plays the premise of a battlerager already (albeit I've not been playing for very long, it became apparent to me there were a lot of seemingly law abiding and cliche characters about so I thought a battlerager of sorts character would be a relief lol). He took fighter lvl's initially with the intention of taking barbarian lvl's as well, beyond this though or even the right mix I'm unclear as obviously I can't take the prestige it self.
Fighter/barbarian seems a good base. If you want to focus on the drunken singing and dancing bit, a dip in bard might be interesting, but the class features aside from bard song (cha based casting, etc) might not be very fitting.
I'd think it'd be fitting to more focus on barbarian levels then fighter, so that your ability to rage will improve. If you have 25 skill ranks in intimidate and 15 barbarian levels once you reach epic level, you'll be able to take Terrifying Rage, which seems like it'd be very fitting for such a character.
First off, I love the idea of players trying to emulate prestige classes (or even base classes) that NWN doesn't provide. I think it's a great way of adding diversity to the server. Not every prestige class can be emulated but many can, some better than others.
The Battlerager is one of the few classes described in the thread about Prestige Classes. Based on that you definitely need to be a non-lawful dwarf. I would pick a fighter/barbarian combination as well to emulate a battlerager. I would concentrate on skills like intimidate, discipline and listen. Look at the skills listed in the link and choose from those. I would pick feats like power attack, cleave, great cleave, resist poison, great fortitude (similar to PnP's Endurance) and improved unarmed strike so that I have the feats listed for that class. Secondary feats I would choose from are knockdown, improved knockdown (if my INT is high enough), toughness and blind fight. Or you could choose to invest some feats into focusing on a weapon. I wouldn't pick expertise, even though that's a great feat for fighters, because that feat is defense oriented and battleragers are more focused on inflicting damage than protecting themselves. The balance of fighter vs. barbarian levels depends on how important rage vs. feats are to you. I would put more emphasis on barbarian levels.
Anyway, that's my two cents worth of how I would approach the class.
My apologies for being a thread necromancer but I find this thread to be relevant to my interest. I was thinking of Role playing a Stormlord (PrC as opposed to the title given to a Cleric of Talos) but given the lack of the Storm Domain in Neverwinter Nights I’m not sure how to go about it. Its clearly outlined by DM that the Air Domain cannot be used if you’re a Cleric of Talos, unfortunately it’s the only Domain I see that resembles Storm having electrical based spells (Chain lightning)
But I digress weather I take the Druid class or Cleric class what does a DM suggest I do to emulate a Stormlord Prestige Class?
