Now that Chrysogonos qualifies for Level 6, I was going back over the character and feat options. I have at least two routes of advance and I need to choose a plan. Since I had originally planned on cranking out the Style feats, I was going back over those.
Item 1: I was looking over my origins, and for Striking, I had been ignoring:
Since Distract drops an opponents initiative by 2d6 for that round only, I hadn't thought it useful. Then I noticed Fan Service in the Adventure Companion:
Those of you who have adventured with Chrysogonos know how Impressive he is! Do I take this at level 6, and put off the Comely chain for another time?
At the table in Stillwater this month, we were discussing language training. In the favors listed in the rulebook, 2 reputation will buy 1 language for 1 adventure. With a Hero of the <foo> feat, that cost becomes 1, and the increased Legend (+2 Legend) covers that and more.
Do I go for the fun (Fan Service) or the functional (Hero of the People)?
