  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

One of my favorite characters was a gnome rogue.  When we started playing it was AD&D 2E, and eventually we converted over to 3rd when it came out.

In short, the gnome was a b******.  More a cat burglar, most notably, he had murdered a family of elves once when a job went bad.  Then the crime was framed onto another gnome by the guild he belonged too.

Additionally, our group was on some quest, I think to find pieces of a broken rod.  An evil wizard wanted it, and somehow I was kidnapped by him, and after some torturous nights in his tower, I was given a choice of spying on the group for him, or death.  I chose to spy.
One of my fav characters was a 3E Halfling Rogue/Fighter who self assigned himself to the partys Paladin/Knight as Squire. He was hilarious on his Riding Dog following Sir Andrew and telling the peasents to bow down and talking smack to the various bad guys how SIr Andrew was going to drop them in one shot and such. And the resulting, "YOU ARE NOT MY SQUIRE!!", in the middle of combat was almost too much. I think his name was Bartamaius Hollowhill, Bart for short, and he (By good luck and some fast-talking) had the feats, classes and levels to dual-wield two mastercrafted, repeating, hand crossbows. Sure a hand crossbow does 1d4 or some such, but combined with bonus, sneak attack, poison and magical effects and such he was able to drop anything less then a bugbear in one shot. He also had a weakness for candy and pies and got the party tossed out of more then one town for the occational unplanned pie theft. (Why do those housewives always put the pie in the front window? Don't they know that is impossible for a Chaotic Neutral halfling Thief to resist???)

Good times.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
