From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction[edit]

Ever thought that your Scout wasn't fast enough? Well, here's a really fast one.

Races & Templates[edit]

Thri-Kreen (non-psionic)

Alternate Build[edit]

Rather than taking Thri-kreen, you can be a Monk, and get Ki Focus weapons. That way you get the +10 move speed, for the three levels. So you can play this build all the way up from level 1.

Items[edit]

The Boots of Skating are a must have.

^You need not use Scimitars, any light slashing weapon will do

Highlights[edit]

Spring attack always you to run in, at half your move speed, and attack, and then move away, so only the best ranged combatants stand a chance against you. Any strictly melee character simply cannot outrun you.


Munchkin-Size Me[edit]

Find everything that increases speed, and I mean EVERYTHING! Get Dervish 3, so that you have spring attack, and then take a level of Blade Dancer. At first level your land speed doubles.


Side Notes[edit]

Because of the strange classes taken, you actually have all good saves. I mean lowest is Will at +9?? COME ON!!

That is simply crazy for a Roguish type!

Limitations[edit]

Fighting anything flying would be impossible using this reliance on Spring Attack.

DM Counters[edit]

Have armies of Archers, or Thri-Kreen hunting Rangers.

Trip. Grapple. Stun. Daze. Etc. Also Fog and Cloud spells.

Miscellaneous[edit]

He is faster than you.
