These are all more or less based on other DnD characters that I just decided to poke a little fun at.

Did I do this right? - This week's commentary is going to be generally short. My brain is just pretty fried and I honestly can't think of anything interesting to say!

I guess what I'm really curious to see is if I hit home for anyone. If any of you play DnD, maybe you'll see a character trope/stereotype that's used here - just common mistakes made by newbie character creators.
Actually, I get a huge kick out of the characters I made when I was a teenager - and heck, even characters I see online made by people who are new to it. They're very pure - often times they're just a generalized avatar of the creator, so it's interesting to see what the author does to "themselves" when they have complete control over the universe and circumstances in which they've put their creation.

Actually, that's fun to think about. Did any of you make characters back when you were young that you purposefully projected yourselves onto? What was that character like? What do you think of them now?

(Well. This ended up being a lot deeper than I was expecting it to be!)

Meg out.

At least that archer maintained his confidence and didn't blow out hot air or excuses.

Never actually played DnD or, but I used to have a drow character named Tamlyn(not like your drow, more like on the drowtales comic, but with morals). Fought with fire and a bladed staff. Played a smart alecky big brother role. Still like him.

I did make a character quite similar to myself, but that was only a year ago, when I started playing Pathfinder, so my opinion hasn't really changed^^"

It's a gnome rogue/alchemist with the typical curiosity of gnomes, but also rather cautious. (So yes, a lot like me^^)

What do you mean with "when we were young"? I would definitely still do it if given the chance :p
