The Dancing Serpent [OOC] Visitors welcome

so, this is the OOC Thread, where we can talk about anything, well almost anything. I would like to keep game related stuff out of this thread. Other than that no subject is out of our reach.

Hello everyone, i am going out of town starting here in the next few minutes and i will not be back for a few days so i have posted what i have for the game. i added a few maps as well but the text is very hard to read, so i will fix it once i get back into town as well as finish up one the over all background for the world but it should be enough to get started on character creation.

See you all soon.

I weigh 157 at 6', and everyone tells me I am scrawny. She should look more like Hammer from Fable 2, but not that important though. If she rolled the size and weight maybe, the book does call for random size and weight.

In all actuality, 6-2 is the tallest a female elf can be.

I rolled the height. got max die on it. I rolled 303 lbs for weight. and asked sheepman wtf because that seemed like too much lol... He said "just make up whatever" I'm short and fat in real life so I don't have a good concept of what a tall person should weigh. 140ish would still be fat for someone my height. I should probably make it about 170 or so I guess.

With a 19 strenth, 303 isn't bad, you might even get a size bonus. but as for 6-2 average weight.... I might say 200lbs for as strong as you are. Again I am 6ft and pushing 160 and everyone tells me that I am skinny. You could probably go with 180lbs with 0 body fat.

Still we arrive at one thing. Beast.

170 is much more reasonable, if a tad on the light side. But for a half-elf at 'pinnacle' strength like that... a 'bit' on the light side is ok, though more is better still.

What I imagined to try and put it in perspective to me is that a strength like that is human maximum. Not a guy who goes to the gym, not a bodybuilder... but strongman competition style guys who pull trucks with their teeth for the fastest time. Not small guys.

Now, I'm not saying she should be 'that' big, since she is half-elven. But in that class would make it much more believable to me.

The problem, for me, is that the mental image of the small dainty thing I'm getting from what I've read so far isn't in accordance with that strength score, and just makes me feel like the two don't match. i.e. IMO, you just can't be that strong and be dainty, unless the strength is from magic. If you play that way, I would feel like the description/depiction of the character was rather deceptive against the stats. If that is intelligible?

hehe well im not that hung up on weight XD I can change it on the character sheet to be around 200ish or so

Also my character is not trying to be standoffish or cold. She just has no people skills so to say. She's actually kinda coming off as almost true neutral right now instead of good so I might change that too lol.

Lawful Neutral??!!!
I do not believe in NN.
To me they would choose the side of whoever was loosing, regardless of prior affiliation.
Plus you are the only good character.

I'm not a big fan of the alignment system myself, so I would be against that as a guideline as to how to run your character. Instead, just play the character... and then we can all figure out what alignment fits them later... not the other way around.

i have to agree with Vortigern there. we can figure out your alignment once you have a good feel for your character.

Wow this game has slowed down substancially. I guess seeing the ship sail into the distance was just too much salt on the wound sheep. lol

I'm TDY and working 12s in an exercise at current, so any activity from me will be delayed/slow for now.
