It's entirely possible that outsider possession is a red herring. Some tokens turn out to be irrelevant every year.

Very true but my guess is that on one of the E's it will come up in some sort of way just because we have 3 tokens that deal with it. The two completion tokens from Pax and the Mask from larger orders.

A barbarian thought

CoA
ISSN
ISGN
RoSP (voucher)
+3 Deathcleaver
Surtrs Girdle of Fire Strength
Gloves of Weapon Finesse

Obviously the +5 Deathcleaver would be better if one is available
Gloves of Weapon Finesse over Gloves of the Brute as the +5 to strength results in an odd number so gives a lesser to hit bonus.
I'm willing to burn my voucher on this run, no worries there. And Fight After Death could pretty useful in a room 7 fight.
This build gives priority to hit over damage. With the +5 Deathcleaver the hit bonus is 16.
It's a total glass cannon. AC and saves? Both suck.

If you want him to be a true glass cannon you could go with Kilt of Barrelbane to give him +6 str instead of the gloves. It would give him the +3 to hit and +3 to damage taking a further hit to AC and saves and HP.

I am not suggesting this but I thought it was funny. With a Crown of Expertise you could go Fight After Death Twice in the game. Hmmm the paladin could sarafice twice. that actually might be useful in this format.

Usable 1 per game. Though if it wasn't you 10 hp still might not prevent you dying in the same room more than once.

I'll have at least one kilt made by then. That would be a good change.

I now wonder if the Paladin should where the Crown of Expertise so they could sacrifice twice if needed. Thoughts?

Option 1-Max out AC while guarding 2
Byr’s Anointed Redoubt Plate
Giln’s Redoubt Shield (or just blessed if we cannot borrow one)
Amulet of Guarding
Ring of Heroism

Option 2-Add retribution and survivability while guarding 2
Byr’s Anointed Redoubt Plate
Ring of Supreme Elemental Control
Amulet of Guarding
Eldritch Kilt (dex or con) or Ro7P (which either seems best)

Option 3-Extra Sacrifice while guarding 2
Byr’s Anointed Redoubt Plate
Amulet of Guarding
Ring of Heroism
Crown of Expertise
