personally, i can not express how much contempt i hold for the geekiness of roleplaying anime/novels/movie. Living vicariously through someone else's fantasy is an affront to human will. Then again, that's just my opinion.

btw. in AD&D, the fighter kit "Berserker" fixes the discussed inconsistency with fighter/barbarian in d20.

Problem 1: Guts isn't epic level yet.
Problem 2: the Dragonslayer should be a Mercurial Fullblade(2d8) or greatsword. ( I admit greatsword since only epic rules allow for a fullblade, but I say Guts isn't epic). He should also have improved critical and similar feets.
Problem 3: The DS is made of normal metal and has no magical properties that this guy has accounted for.

Why isn't Guts epic level? Well, for starters, how about we look at Grunbeld. Hes basicly a dragon (switch fire breath if he doesn't have it to get hardness). His size, Huge, gets him as far as a Chalange Rateing of 18 (several), 17(some) 19(some good) 20(silver) 21(copper). As much of a beating as Guts is takeing, this is not an even CR fight.

do not forget that a CR is made for average levels above 4 characters

ie:
two 20th level and two 18th level characters are suitable for a CR19

or

two 20th level, two 18th level and two 10th level characters are suitable for a CR24

atleast thats how i understand it

also, i have seen rules for zienhienders(horse slayers - spelled wrong) which are aproximately the same size at the DS .... however to use this weapon you must have the feat oversized weapon(or is it massive weapon?) ....

he did give him improved critical by the way ....

Problem 4: Guts has a Charisma of 16??? Sorry, make that 10, maybe 12 at most.

And I don't think we should categorize Grunbeld as an ordinary dragon here, he's much more than that, even when seen from a D&D perspective.

all the Crit feats? or just 1? I lost interest at some point.

Yea, I think I mentioned oversized weapon, but that is an epic feat.

A 20th level party fighting a monster (or group) with a CR 20 shouldn't expend more then 1/4 of their resources. This is gonna take everything Guts has.

Guts does have plenty of Charisma. (Charisma being force of personality). He's swayed a number of people, its just that Griffith's is higher. Like 26 (reborn) or so. ;D

Ok, lets compare Grunbeld to an ancient (oldest H size) copper dragon.
39 AC (sounds possible)
Damage reduction: 15/+2 (DS not meeting +2) (posibly increase by 5)

Breath Weapon: Line of acid/ cone of slow gas. (grunbeld probably doesn't have one)
Acid imunity, stone shape, transmute rock to mud/mud to rock, wall of stone
can cast Chaos Earth and Trickery domains as arcane spells.

Weird to find that kind of opinion in a Berserk related internet forum.Or maybe that's just me.

there's one thing i've always wondered about 3rd edition. how is it possilbe (not rulewise)that normal human characters can have stats over 18? if i remember correctly, a stat of 18 is the human maximum (especially because of the 3d6 limit). i can understand Griff having 20+ chr, but pippin having 26 str? i don't think the latter is a supernatural creature or anything of that sort.
in another word -- it doesn't seem possible for d20 to have a coherent gauge of the setting.

yeah, there's some self-loathing here and there. but i like to imagine that i play RPGs for the sake of battling wits against a human mind. and berserk? i don't think that's a very good for a vicarious reading.

you get a stat point once every 4 levels. also, there are ways to improve your stats un-naturaly. (also, the half orc or whatever thing for pippen)
 
Yeah, well obviously guts should have a +6 Piss Jive Dagger, with a resistance to claustrophobia. And how could they not give him a Versmillion Capajack? Seriously guys, that's just sad. Now if it was me, I'd give him a Smookar Zweidyer of Ultimate Crushing +14, and then maybe some JibJob. At least a TTD99 jibjob, too.

i know that, it's just that it always occured to me that 18 is the human limit -- therefore the characters on the aforementioned link are not at all faithful to the source. And on a general basis, it has always disturbed me that 3rd edition allows most "normal" chrs have stats that are beyond their ability (as things within nature). Of course, this is all based on the assumption that 18 (sometimes 19) is the human max. It was in Ad&D

humans can surpas that. Its just the limit on starting stats. There are epic feats that require 19+ stats. OH, and how is a mage supposed to cast 9th level spells if not for higher then 18 stats?

Understood. I was still thinking Ad&D. So 18 is NOT the human maximum. Rather, there is no limit to human potentiality in 3rd edition. How nice to know that.
