Re: Out Of Character Discussion
You can't keep concentration when your raging. They nip that right in the bud, if you are able to cast spells, you can't cast them or concentrate on them while raging.

I entertained the thought of a Barbarian Monk, because that just sounded entertaining.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
You only mix monk in if you're going to dip fighter for the unarmed fighting style so your fists become d8 weapons instead of d4, so your unarmed strikes don't suck. Cool monk stuff also tends to use your bonus action, so depending on your barb plans you may not be able to use most of your cool stuff anyway due to action economy.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Base Monk stuff tends to rely heavily on Unarmed Strikes in order to even trigger their effects at all, however.  So short of getting DM approval to activate them via a Monk Weapon or switching to a non-weapon combat focus, Monk combat perks don't mesh all that well with other martial types from my own experience.  Honestly, I've never understood why RAW Monk relies so heavily on unarmed combat when there's built-in rules for Monk Weapons as part of the class itself, let alone with the Way of the Kensei being a weapon specialist.

Yeah, if go frenzied berserker archetype which fits for big 2h swinger types, they get an extra attack via bonus action (and can get a third attack once reaching 5th).

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
If I was going Eldritch Knight, I'd mix in at least 2 levels of Paladin to 8 levels of Eldritch Knight.  Then decide from there.  But for this game, I'm starting Barbarian.

Could go Barbarian [archetype] 10/Paladin 2/Eldricth Knight 8 ;). Or barbarian/paladin, as albeit you cannot cast spells but can do raging smites.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I could, but there's not really enough synergy there.  You cut out either Barbarian or Eldritch Knight/Paladin when you start tripping their special abilities.

Yeah and overall progression as well ASI wise and get MAD as well (as paladin depends multiple stats to be good). But there's thematic synergy with barbarian (zealot) with paladin (conquest/vengeance).

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I like Monk (Drunken Master)/Sorceror (Draconic).  Unarmed attacks, greater amount weaponry, spell versatility that beats Way of the Four Elements (though some of those powers are cool).  And don't forget the AC bonus from having scales.  I have a character with a naked AC of 17.

DM hasn't logged in for nearly a week anyway, so no big deal.

Perhaps you should stop making pacts with great old ones.  *L*

It's only been two weeks.  Things come up.  When it's two months, then it's time to wonder.

They did say that they were a busy individual and it would be posts as often as once a week or so.

Yeah, let's ponder game resurrection by another player after a month or two.
