    I agree with evilbob.

    I would add that a ranged Striker like a Ranger seems to be easiest. No need to worry too often about positioning in that case.


    A Warlock is a fun ranged Striker to play, but they tend to be a tiny bit more complex to run and they also are a bit weaker overall unless designed well.
    The first sign of a broken rule is when someone suggests that the way to stop it is by readying an action.

    Sorcerers are easy to play, but can't take a lot of damage unless given a lot of feats (though I have not had much problems so far in my PBP game so far). I would say they are even easier to play than a Wizard. You just have to know how best to aim your AOE Star Sorcerers seems a little more complex however, giving the phases.

    You might want to skip Rogue as it can be confusing how to get combat advantage, which a lot of your damage is from.

    Like others have said, avoid Psionics like the plague as it is confusing.

    A fighter would be a very good representation of Jayne in 4e. You get to be the toughest son of a gun in the room, and you can just beat the tar out of anyone who tries to slip past you.

    A Barbarian (with a high Con modifier) would be the other obvious choice.

    I see Jayne as more of a big, burly (half-orc maybe) ranger. The shooty kind. Able to punch when need be, but he'd rather shoot you.

    I don't know this Jayne guy, but if you're looking for a Tough SOB Battlemind is a great choice or Earthstrength Warden, but yeah for a bit simpler choice, a shield & 1-handed weapon talent fighter is a good bet. A static +1 to hit is easy to remember.

    If we're going for simple strikers, I think the Sorcerer and Barbarian come in before the Ranger, Rogue or Warlock. The latter three need to keep track of the striker damage. The first two simply get their damage on their attacks.

    I can certainly see the sense in saying Strikers are easier to play than the other roles.

    All new characters start between 1ľ4th level.

    The PH3 has been autoaproved (all WotC sources are autoapproved about 1 month after publication).

    Are we allowed to play 2 characters yet?

    Are all the attacks for the encounter of creatures summoned with daily powers considered to be "Daily Attacks"?
    Remember that every facet of our lives tries to become all consuming if we don't watch it. We need creative outlets like gaming to keep the trudge of daily life from grinding our souls into dust...
