Public Service Annoucement

I'll be traveling to visit family in various parts of the US starting on the 23rd and ending around the 2nd. My posting rate will be greatly reduced and there may be a slight delay until I reply to anything directed, directly at me

Merry Christmas! Savoy

Nicely done! I have you marked Complete!

I'll get you some feedback when I get back from travels so I don't rush it.
Thanks again for the app!!

Pretty cool! Pretty interesting!

I think I will roll and then start from there. See if I can (or cannot) come up with something. Either way, probably a spellcaster of some sort.

If it helps, I'll pick up interesting and flawed (mechanically) characters way before nicely optimized ones. They make for more interesting stories IMHO.

I was excited about my -best rolls ever- but now they are worrisome. Maybe I should re-imagine him and reassign his stats to make him more unusual?

Don't over worry about stats... either way. I'm happy the dice gods were good to you but its the rest of the app the weighs the most to me. My comments before were to encourage folks that might feel that 'meeh' or low characteristic rolls might put them at a disadvantage in some way which isn't the case. Personally, I've 'found' my most memorable characters in that situation and really had to work a bit harder to discover the personalities and interesting bits in characters that had max stats for their class, etc.

I hope that helps! - Savy

I am extremely interested as well, and think I have just the character (I'm one of those guys that just has a binder full of ideas and concepts). So I'd love to sign up and I'll post an app soon!

Character Information
Name: Ebenezer E.B. Bachs
Race: Halfling
Background: Courtier
Class: Wizard (Abjuration)
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Description: Short with thick brown hair and deep chocolate-hued eyes. He often dresses immaculately, befitting his former station as a protege and messenger to a noble house. He usually carries a thick, leather-bound journal to keep a record of the spells he has studied, as well as a short oaken staff that has been carved depicting a scene of three bears and an owlbear, wreathed in flames. At the tip of the staff, as if the animals depicted in the carving were descending upon it, is a blue orb that functions as his arcane focus. Despite his apparent high society looks, however, he manages to keep a humble air about himself. A dichotomy possibly caused by the fact his feet are left unadorned, or because of his more... let's say rotund, nature, and friendly expressions. His shoulder, chest, and back are covered in a series of nasty scars that most don't get to see.

History:

Now those are some fun, challenging stats. You gotta lean into that. Make a Fizban the Fabulous, or a Rincewind. Just play off those flaws.
