Hello fellow roleplayers,
Lurked on this very useful forum for some time. Thanks for all the fishes. This is my first post.
Tl;Dr: DMM vs AT? Initiate of Mystra vs Item Familiar?
So I'm about to start my Eberron version of the SCAP from Paizo. My players agreed to try hard mode, that is : play it as written with 28 point-buy. Exception they're only 2 players and never played first tier classes, so to make them learn I made them gestalt cleric and gestalt wizard. I explained to them it is made for 6 PCs so at the beggining they should hire mercenaries and thieves and the sooner they should take Leadership.
To give them a chance (they're not min-maxers or power players), I will also suggest them some cheese, DMM and AT. Do you think they're equivalent?
Since they're going Sovereign Host, should I also suggest them the Initiate of Mystra (Aureon) for the cleric and Item Familiar with Alakast for the wizard (also to make them learn about the wonders of item creation by using the XP to boost their WBL and equip their followers)?
