The Usual Suspects.

Our new Parties are gathering


We are expecting a couple more players also but so far

Human Fighter
Halfling Stout Cleric
Half Elf Wild Magic Sorcerer
Wood Elf Investigator Rogue
Half Orc Folk Hero (Accidental)
For the 13th Age
Diabolist
Sorcerer
Paladin



 


Now, the more perceptive among you will have noticed that there is a slight issue here. Perhaps, if I were to put it into pictures....
 



Tamara                                                 Fenrik
 
Ah to be playing a Paladin again...however it is my understanding that it is both my professional duty as well as my quest in life to cut the heads off evil people. Now Rob the Diabolist (has a nice ring to it don't you think ?) has assured me that in fact the rather introverted background to the character does in fact promote a social justice paradigm. In his own words:
 
"But Tamara, plot hooks aside, is centrally about creating a fighter for social justice. She's a tiefling which is always going to result in social exclusion and racism, she's gay which is something she always has to hide and she's a woman, a member of the largest oppressed group in human history. She has a lot of reasons to fight social injustices beyond the fact that she's developed a strong conscience despite the odds being against her. Tamara sees wider pictures too: don't just give gold to the beggar child, put gold towards building an orphanage."
 
Problem is that Paladins eyes tend to glaze over listening to all of this if someone has evil toast for breakfast. So we shall see, although of course I don't expect my character to last long as evil slaying knights who are immune to fear tend to be uninsurable. I need to think about what character I am playing next already.
