Heck, the "Old Fears Come Again" plot hook's enough for a high vote, all in of itself.  Too damn often, the moral absolutism of D&D and its ilk manifests itself in the notion that if the other guys are "Evil," just about any bestial thing you do to them is okay, because, well, they're Evil, doncha know?

I for one, like how you mixed eastern, middle eastern, and western influences. Using the latin "Pater" as a priestly title is always a good way to denote a sort of organized religious hierarchy. Using Anubis as a venerable death god, is recognizable by just about anyone who has taken a world history class.



I also like the old idea of a venerable death god, rather than a satanic death-worshipping God, where the clerics give aide and comfort to the relatives of the deceased. It's a refreshing trend away from the typical fantasy view of death worshipping priests from whatever "Temple of doom" is around, who bathe in the blood of their kidnapped sacrifical virgins. 



I like it. 3.5/5

Enjoyed the balanced aspect of her. Basically a stupid jock with a female twist but I am over simplifying. Fun character to dethrone the fighter in your group. Go to Comment

Thanks, thanks a lot! Next, we want to see... the Paladin... yesss, my precioussss, the palladin.

As for Esther - she is not as lost as Regdar and Mialee. It could even be a great roleplaying opportunity for a PC priest, pally or monk, either a very reasonable man or a strong lady, teaching Esther that the perfection consists of an unity between mind and body, Just bodily perfection is not enough.

Or, the PCs could try to achieve a delicate mission, with combat being absolutely useless, even detrimental to it, and with Esther interfering.

A well-written char, thus 4 of 5 Go to Comment

A nice addition - no where near as amusing as Redgar or Mialee (is your sense of humour failing Scrax) but an interesting character nonetheless

I'll give this one 4/5 Go to Comment

Interesting...

Are you going to take every D&D sampler character and buffoon it up? 'Cuz that would be great!
I'd love to see that monk Ember get all emotional!

4/5. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2004-09-14 07:48 AM
I like the character. It is an excellent addition to a game with Regdar or a good stand alone character. She might secretly possess a few magic items that help her facilitate the illusion of her mighty magehood.

A good twist would be to make her an illusionist. A few image and mind control related spells would go far in making her the apple of the court's eye.

Another plotline is "Struck between the eyes"
A character first sees her at a distance and is smitten with attraction for her (tell the PC he failed a love check). The PC then will work on getting close to her, perhaps doing some act of daring do to ingraciate himself with her. Then they finally meet her, and she is not what she seemed to be. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2004-09-14 11:32 AM
After a second look several hours later, I must agree with EchoMirage. She is too similar to Redgar, but MoonHunter had several good suggestions which I have taken into accounted and edited Mialee. She is now an illusionist and the bulk of her talent is in that realm of magic. She uses a pair of magic items, the diadem and the ring, to bring the rest of her spell casting up to snuff and be seen as a real mage and not a conjurer of fake tricks. So, she is more intelligent than Redgar, but is still a self-absorbed and vain spell caster. Go to Comment

That is a pretty good idea. I think I might do that. Since you suggested Ember, I think she will be next! Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-09-14 01:33 AM
you know, this is the same tune you played to Regdar. I know, they fit well together, but the similarities are too great (most of all the 'a wizard doing most of the spellcasting for her') - I'd say she might be a competent wizard, prone to flaunting her power and humbling male wizards ('you call THAT demon summoning?! I will show you the real stuff...' - this could lead to a great plot is a few seconds later, she said 'oh, ... crap') Go to Comment

Well Scras, I'm not particularly fond o DnD myself so I never bothered to get the new 3rd Ed rules, consequently I haven't these DnD archetypes everybody keeps talking about.

Even so I liked Redgar a lot (see my reply to that post) and I also like Mialee for many of the same reasons.

True, she is very similar to Redgar - but so what, they make a great pair

*Sigh* This is my characters name in FFXI, did you have to use the name Redgar? I am nothing like this.

Laugh-out-loudly! I certainly enjoyed this one, moreso given the fact that you used the default DnD warrior's name :D

Actually, the name of the default D&D character is Regdar Go to Comment

*I am the above poster whos FFXI character name is redgar*

Infact, I think that this redgar is just an imposter of some sort and that he imprisoned the real(good) Redgar somewhere. And the real redgar, is actually a good intellegent man that helps people where ever he goes. That sounds more like me XD Go to Comment

Great fun! At first I thought it was a little overdone (which was probably the point) but then the plot hooks brought it all together for me. I pictured him as a cartoon character like GROO the entire time and I think the image half fits. Great idea!! Go to Comment

...oh, yes, if singers that cannot sing become pop-stars, there have to be similar celebrities between those valiant Knights.

And could some "defeated" rival wish to expose him? Oh, yes indeed! Work for the characters.

A perfect NPC. A great foil for a hard working adventurer who is not getting the fame he deserves for all the real work he is doing.

Plots
Hey I did that: The players perform some great act in a remote area. When they head towards civilization after having to spend some time resting or taking a detour for some reason, they are hearing stories of Redgar performing the deeds that they did. They even might be mentioned as supporting characters. Go to Comment
