So there I was, looking at the bright wall that is my computer screen, a background he said. Eugh.
And I even had to choose a class! So many choices!
Well, I’ve always had an affinity for melee classes, and since I also play rogue in WoW I thought, why not give it a try here?
It was a not-so-stealthy half orc rogue, sporting a spiked-chain in a martial arts style, very fancy. He also had one eye.
In any case, I had this great idea for a wizard, I can’t mention my great idea here yet in case I’ll need it for a time yet to come, but it is a magnificent idea!
Turns out one of our other players wanted to be a wizard, so I forfeit and made it a sorcerer instead, no biggie, after all I required was an arcane wielding nutcase.
But, we still needed a healer to keep our sorry asses alive.
I prayed for weeks, hoping someone would roll a leader-type, but to no avail, all we had were two other strikers, a controller and a defender.
I contemplated for a time, maybe we could see this through without a healer, we did have a lot of dpr, or at least we should have.
I started looking around for any leader class I would even be remotely happy to play with, bard? too loud. Artificer? too techy.
Cleric? well, in all our games we had a player who only played cleric, a cleric shooting lazor from her eyes and nursed us like we were her kids. No way I’d play that.
then I saw the Battle cleric, at first I had dismissed it as a bad version of the devoted cleric.
But when I looked closer, I came to realize this was a pretty interesting class, combined with a savage natured character this PC could be made manly enough for me to consider playing!
Even though I very much doubt it will ever be forgotten, I have to mention it took Malthe just about a month to come up with a background. Laughing material for years I say!
