In my defense, I didn't have any fodder for witty remarks. d: Your avatar looks nice today. Did you do something with it? :v
I find it helpful to search for quotes that fit what the character would say, though I don't include them in my sheet. "Now this is what I'm talking about! Ooh, come to Oghren, ye long-limbed goddesses. The pride of Orzammar is in the house!" ;P
My list of popular books to read is far too long. And includes everything Terry Pratchett has ever written.
Being poor sucks. I regret choosing this background at character creation. :v
Huh. I...don't think those are what halflings are. d: Halflings are short humans that were "inspired" from Tolkien's Hobbits, except they don't have hairy feet. Maybe you can make your Dwarf be a little bit of a failed Han Solo? Trying to be charming and witty and just...failing. d:
Phew. I had enough trouble escaping from those Priests in a Ferrari back in Jamaica... I don't normally get obsessed with fandoms, except in a select few cases where I fangirl over one character for no raisin. Like Bellatrix LeStrange, from Harry Potter. :3
Yes. I don't enjoy being poor, but it is the way of things. :s
Ah halflings. The best of both worlds. With some one who is half and half, you can really do whatever you want with the backstory. I guess that's a benefit. And yes, Han Solo is glorious and so would have been my Elf... xD
*puts away torch* Since you asked nicely... Okay, I think they are just okay books. I never got obsessed like other people.
Yeah, I might have to do that. I'd rather not jump right into one at a convention... ;
Yes, I do see.
Haha, human bias! Join the minority mystical creatures association! We demand equality now! It was good idea to keep it vague, I've tried doing that to an extent. I was thinking about a magic using, Han solo type, female elf at one time. But, plans change. :3
I hear they sometimes run them at conventions, but they're apparently really expensive regardless. Maybe you could ask at your local gaming store, if you have one?
And you can see where Mimi's boldness comes from. :v
Yeah, it was. Elves have about two hundred words and a single nation, while humans have more lore than Tolkien's sock drawer. I mostly kept the specifics (Form of society, type of homes) vague and focused on the character's pre-game arc. But, I had to check with Raikiri about the brand of magic I was planning to use. He was pretty amiable about it.
An archer would have been my next choice, though. There's something fascinating about bows, but I can't quite put my finger on it. d:
It can certainly wander into extreme nerdiness (This is me pretending to be an expert, despite having only played it online), but it's just some good fun, in the end. More social than reading a book, at least. :v
Are you having any trouble coming up with a decent background for your dwarf? There's so little information for dwarves and elves compared to the humans...
