Right, but his character was 1st level at the time.

Maybe it was just a villiager dressed up as a Minotaur. Maybe It was a suprise party, did you think of that? huh?

Okay, I'm stretching, but it could have been possible!

Yeah, I'm not terribly bothered about it. It just seems inconsistent to me, but it doesn't really need to be changed.

...well, after some considerable thought, I was thinking of maybe using a different deity. And maybe a different race, like Dwarf or Elf. I'm not sure yet...

A minotaur could be slain at first level, but not in straight-up combat. A bear trap followed by some longspears or arrows might do the trick. A few of his warrior buddies could work as well.

So yes, he could beat the minotaur, but not casually. It'd take some planning, patience, and a whole lotta luck.

Maybe he got a critical roll or something. I mean, my 15 year old, not quite fighter guy was able to defeat an entire Mercenary company (though I never did say how many where part of it at the time) by himself. Of course, he was under the compulsion of a Demon, so that may have something to do with it...

I don't see anything WRONG with the idea persay, but you may want to just mention that he snuck up on the Minatour (downwind or something?) and was able to kill him by attacking him from behind. Or something.

They do get mummierot...

And killing a minotaur at 1st level is quite possible; luck is often with those who do not count on it.

Me and Paul once killed 4 nasty duergar when we were relatively low level in just 3 rounds - all a result of not counting on luck...

Is we go strictly by the rules is it possible? Yes, technically it is, but it's also bloody unlikely. Barring multiple critical misses on the minotaur's part, he's probably going to hit and doing 2d8+6 is fairly unpleasant. Heaven forbid he hits twice because then it's over for our hero.

I'm not arguing that it isn't theoretically possible. Instead I was merely suggesting that there are a few other ways one could go about killing it, preferably without having to deal with its reach or huge greataxe.

I'll be a Drow Priestess of Corellon Larethian. I actually have a better idea for this character...very awesome...involves lots of love...and chaos. It's perfect. =D

As far as the minotaur thing, I was just saying it was unlikely. Not impossible, just implausible.

And we only use PHB races. Sorry, no drow.

Eh? Well, bless me for being an idiot if I haven't gone and forgotten me manners! Hello to you too... I'm just reading up on the story right now, before I decide on what sort of character to submit. Wouldn't want to turn up with something completely intrusive...

...holy hats made of ass, I sounded like an idiot way back when. And while I was gone, I discovered that the only race that I'm good at RPing as is a Dwarf. So, just throwing out ideas, are there any Dwarven Barbarians in the group? Because if there isn't, I'll fill that prestigious role...

Dwarven barbarian eh? Kinda unlikely combo, since dwarves tend towards the lawful spectrum of the alignment chart usually...

Well, I know the first thing you have to do: you have to give a background or something on him first, before we can evaluate it. I think it says that in the rules somewhere...

What he said. How a Dwarf fell from civilisation can make an interesting tale.

Torgan Stonesmasher, Dwarf Bbn4

Torgan's past is one of hardship and sadness, and yet this hardship is what drives him in life. His original clan, Clan Ungart, was driven from their ancestral home by a clan of duergar when he was a 'young' twenty years old, forcing the 500 dwarves that had survived into the killing cold of the northlands. It was fate that his family and friends ran into a tribe of barbarians, ranging from human to halfling to a couple half-ogres. His clan found acceptance amongst those nomads, but many of the dwarves, trained to be disciplined in battle, could not fight alongside the more wild and voracious barbarians, and soon the clan left to find another dwarven community. All of them, that is, except Torgan Stonesmasher. His parents were obviously upset but knew they couldn't change his mind. As a final gift, Torgan's father gave him his waraxe and told him to one day seek them out...

...for the next thirty years, Torgan traveled across the northlands with his adopted clan, whose actual purpose was the destruction of the orc and goblin tribes that harrassed nearby villages. It was during one of these battles against a bugbear tribe that a second disaster struck, as a small tribe of ogres attacked the barbarian tribe from behind, catching the raging warriors offguard. The battle quickly became a massacre as Torgan's friends were felled, the bugbears and their allies outnumbering the barbarians four to one. Knowing that the fight was lost, Torgan did the only thing he could; he ran, the screams of his dying comrades ringing in his ears. Now alone, Torgan has begun to search for his clan, not knowing where they may have gone, but not caring either. He doesn't want to face his parents, but he knows that he can't stay in the north, where he would easily be singled out...

-End-

So, comments? Opinions? WTF's?

Certaintly different from the Dwarven norm. The fact that he WANTED to stay with the barbarians is interesting though.

What's his outlook on civilization for the most part? I know that some barbarians consider "civilized" folk little more than cattle, others actually care about their neighbors, most either aren't aware or don't give a damn about the more civilized folk. There are bound to be more views than that, and having come from a VERY structured dwarven community to a chaotic barbarian one is bound to affect one's view on things.

I ask cause your character has as much potential to be an ally as an enemy.

His view on civilization is more of the 'don't give a flying sack of shit' barbarian, because he never dealt with the civilized people that his tribe was protecting at the time. And while I didn't explain it in the backstory, he never liked the strict discipline that was enforced in dwarven society, so when it came to him joining a tribe of warriors that weren't concerned about discipline, he couldn't resist and stayed for that reason. After all, he respects the chaotic life more than the lawful style, and if he ever finds his clan, you can be sure he'll "train" a squad of barbarians, just to mock the lawful structure. Provided he finds them, of course.

Does that help any? ^.^

A bit. Perhaps a synopsis of his personality would be in order though...

Torgan is...interesting, I suppose. In terms of personality, he's your stereotypical dwarf, minus all the caution when it comes to battle and the love of shiny things, with a slight anger problem (well, duh, he's a Barbarian) and a deep loathing of goblinoids and giants. He tolerates orcs and half-orcs (though he's suspicious of those whom he has never met), and doesn't mind the company of humans, elves (including half-elves), halflings and gnomes. Seeing as he hasn't seen any other dwarves in thirty years, he's afraid of how his kin might react when they see him. He isn't much for idle chatter, preferring to get right down to business, and dislikes talking about his past.


Good synopsis?

(Edited to remove those non-existant african-american elves)
