    Baroness Frostlightening: Human Magic User Dualist

    New build:

    Race: Human

    Class: Fighter

    Background: Noble

    Specialty: Magic-User

    Fighting Style: Dualist

    Primary stats of Intelligence and Dexerity.

    Any melee finesse it doesn't matter as by level 3 most attacks will be a combo of shocking grasp and jabbing (with deadly strike stacked on).

    still tough, can parry attacks as well.

    Maybe use the rapier that comes with dualist.

    It* would take to level 5 to stack on "Deadly Strike," because she only has one (1) expertise die per round from level 1 through level 4, and using the "Jab" maneuver spends that.

    Baroness Frosthamster to opponent: "You killed my mother. Prepare to fry."

    * It's "Duelist" with an "e" after the "u," not "dual" as in two of them.

    Maybe she's a Cartesian Dualist?

    I don't know that!

    Well... have a guess!

    HENRI BERGSON...

    ... is the CORRECT ANSWER!

    Ooh, that was lucky. I never even heard of him.

    Yeah, @Warbringer got it right, above.
    Or Dresden Codak -- fittingly D&D.

    Does she get an attack bonus with spells or just int? Every spell caster starts w at least +2, but fighters don't have a magic attack bonus...

    Yes. Jab says you can't make a ranged or melee attack. Casting is a different action.
    The truth is I don't believe in the Truth
