When I first expressed interest in this game, I never would have thought my priest of Sune would be SO in the right place and with the perfect company...

Point of order old chap... (although it still requires you to have the advantage) there is always Seize Initiative... :mrgreen:

I thought about it, 1 rank I mean.I was having to cut back on points in the end. So it didn't make it :(

You could always spend a future pp on it - a permanent charm cast by a friendly Sunite priest or something ;)

She's not got the rank yet, but maybe I can jigger a point somewhere. Or leave it that her looks are so inhumanly exotic it doesn't count as an attractive bonus, but she is pretty, trust us.

Or perhaps the queen of the Faeries marred her in some way before dismissing her from service for disobedience. That'd be neat too.

Seize Init is only used when determining init order. It doesn't let you change your init once battle has started.

Actually, your init can change through delaying, can't it? Also, focusing. So shouldn't Seize Initiative change it also?

That aside.. I cannot beleive we are actually talking about possibly adding to the collective ranks of attractive already stacked for this group. >_< Whatever happened to niches? We already have 3 "the pretty one" lol.

Delaying changes your init down, Refocus does not exist in 3E. And Seize Init specifically says it is used when determining initiative as though you rolled a 20 for a Hero Point.

You cannot reroll your init mid combat, so you cannot use seize init once init is established. Heck, you can't even use it once you've already rolled for init and decide you don't like your roll. It's not a safety net for that.

I mean, Jeran has a rank of Attractive and relatively speaking, he's not 'the pretty one' or even close to it...

Arawn, Ashurei and Amadethyn all have two ranks. They are "the pretty ones".

It makes the most sense for Ashurei as the bard, and Arawn (though he could just as easily get along with 1 rank. Not every Sunit has Attractive 2 after all) comes in second. Amadethyn, well, hot elf chick, so yeah.

Also note, not having the feat does not mean you are unattractive. The feat represents knowing how to use your looks to your advantage in social situations or being so attractive or having some quality to your looks that people can't help but be more pliant when you speak.

Ashurei is a half elf bard with exotic dusky skin and light hair. He specifically tailors his appearance to be as attractive as possible because it's good for business.

There are Niches - the pretty one that sings, the pretty one that re-arranges your mind, the pretty one that prays to the goddess of pretty ones,... etc.
