As far as my records show, Handsome has 16 xp to spend.
I can't spend any yet, as we're in the middle of a dungeon.
That said, here are some things I'm considering purchaseing.
Combat Reflexes . The +1 to defenses would be helpful, as would the bonuses against and recovering from surprise. A surprised scout is a dead one.
Luck . One re-roll per hour would save Handsome when things go bad.
Weapon Master . On the reasonable assumption that we'll get 4 xp before I can spend any, I could just save up for this for my paper man. +2 damage with the bow is nice. He'll need that damage if/when he gets to tougher foes. And it would cut his penalty for a quick shot to -1 from -3.
Perception +3 . Right now, Handsome has a reasonable Per 14. +3 would make that a much more awesome 17. Handsome doesn't need to worry about darkness penalties within a light source radius, even the fringes, so he's able to see pretty well. A 17 would be a very nice . . . edge . . . as a scout.
I'm debating which one . . . but I'm open to opinions and suggestions.
