What would you be?

I’ve started reading Critical Failures (Caverns and Creatures) by Robert Bevan. It’s about a group of people who play a game which, basically, is Dungeons & Dragons (they call the game C&C in the book… I see what he did there). They have advertised for someone to GM for them so they can all play characters, rather than taking turns in GM’ing themselves. Unfortunately they annoy the GM and he decides to get his own back on them – he sends them into the game. They turn into their various characters (halfling rogue, half orc barbarian etc). I haven’t finished the book, but I imagine it will entail them trying to get back to the real world.

The book, so far, is well written and fun to read. But that isn’t what this blog is about 😀

I was telling Rach about it and after musing about what her character would be based on her ‘real life stats’ decided she’d be a fighter type. Decent strength, constitution and dexterity, not so good on the intelligence, wisdom & charisma (those are her words – not mine!!)

That got me to thinking about what I’d be. Constitution & strength are OK, dexterity.. well I can be clumsy, but intelligence is pretty good, and I think charisma too. I like to tinker with things, build things and I could see myself as an artificer quite easily 🙂 This isn’t what I’d want to be – but what I’d be based on me as a person.

Buck Rogers!

Last night I managed two things. I finally got my 3rd Commendation by running FoT to get my Flawless White Dragonscale armour for my tank, Grypp. Then, we re-ran the Tor on eH and I actually pulled the +3 Insightful Strength White Helmet that I thought I was going to have to grind away for months to get. The loot gods were definitely on my side last night!

Except… that armour is very white! It reminded me of the outfit Buck Rogers used to wear in the old TV series. And when @stretchicus mentioned I needed a metal sidekick – well I already have one and could resist 🙂

Also, thanks to Samius I got the Manacles of Ceaseless Toil, which means Samius is well ahead in the good guy points. I must do something about that.. hmmm.. 😛

Have fun, see you around!
