This is the thread for character builds that seem cool, but don't actually work. Feel free to contribute...

Mine for today is

The Untouchable Magic Monk

- Start a Monk
- Get to level 20-something
- Push Mind school to level 25 or so
- Buy a spellbook of Armor of Fear
- If possible, copy the spell to an equipment item
- Cast AoF before entering melee

In theory, less powerful monsters will be scared after the first hit, letting you wade through mobs and score free hits.

In practice though, Armor of Fear is weak. Young/mature dragons, giants, and other level 20-30ish monsters will make the saving throw every time, even if they don't resist fear.

C'est la vie. :roll:

Any bard build at all should have honorable mention. They don't even look viable, but in a setting as music and poetry-centric as Middle Earth they really should be.

n. 1. technocracy. 2. government by the numbers. 3. rule by people with the longest fingers.
