Alright so next month is start of the new Lair Assault program. If you haven't been living under a rock & you have any interest what so ever in Dungeons and Dragons then you will have heard about it already. So I'll assume that you have and not bore you with a recap. While I am of two minds of this whole thing, I do intend to DM for it. So that means that I'll also get a run at the Assult as well.
So this afternoon I started putting together a character. The problem here is that I am not the type of person who min/maxs to any great extent. I build a character to have fun, I build a character to tell a story, I build a character for a lot of different reasons. However one of them is never to make him the biggest possible bad ass I can within the confines of the rules. So this build has been difficult to say the least for me. Here is what I have so far. Any in put would be welcome.

For my level five magic item I'm thinking either the Power Jewlry or the Counters of Second Chances. As for the two consumable's that we are allowed I have no clue at all. I am certainly open to any constructive suggestions, that would improve the character.
