You haven't spent all the 27 attribute dice, btw. Which may be my mistake, given that I didn't specify that those were just for attributes.

As for skills, those can have one or two dice in them. So could you write "Persuade +2d" and add those 2 dice to either Charisma or Manipulation when you're persuading someone, depending on the approach you choose. "Empathy" could help you resist someone's attempts to make you angry (being added to Composure), or to figure out his motives (in combination with Wits). Etc.
D'oh! I somehow had it in my head it could only be 24. Revised list below.

Mental:

> Wits (Finesse)         3
> Resolve (Resistance)   3

> Manipulation (Finesse) 3
> Composure (Resistance) 2

Korgo the troll is a decent smith, if a terrible being in general.  He constantly steals corpses from the graveyard, likes how they burn and the special ‘patina’ it lends to things he forges.  He scrounges spare metal anywhere he can, including weapons from sleeping/unconscious guards - “If they cared, I couldn’t steal ‘em”. He kidnaps dwarves from the Torture chamber so he can put them to work in his forge, until he wears em out of course.  One may wonder how he has any time to do any forging himself.  But he does, and while no one would ever call his works lovely, or professional, or even quite done, they work quite well.  He dislikes making armor, thinking it encourages weakness, and if goblins were meant to have tough hides, like he does, then the Keeper would have made them that way.


Korgo and his few kinsmen are all that remains of a clan of Trolls in the Baldhavin hills whose area was 'cleansed' by the Kings forces. They had previously sold goods to the prior occupant of the Dungeon, and so when seeking succor after their displacement, they ended up here.

Korgo, of course hating the Human king, seeks to reestablish his clan, even if he has to father a hundred trolls himself.  And for that, he needs a wife and lots of gold. So, he works fpr the Vizier.

Love the traits.  :thumbup: I'm down with those.

Here's my stats:
     STAT                  DICE
Physical:   
> Strength (Power)          2
> Dexterity (Finesse)       5
> Endurance (Resistance)    2
   
Mental:    
> Intelligence (Power)      2
> Wits (Finesse)            2
> Resolve (Resistance)      2
   
Social:   
> Charisma (Power)          4
> Manipulation (Finesse)    3
> Composure (Resistance)    2


Can you give me a rough idea of what skills would look like?

Well, I do like them cold.

I'm glad to be back, and especially glad to see we've retained many of the major players, yourself one of the chiefs among them.

Glad to hear it and glad you're back, Roack. Also, maybe it's just me, but somehow keeping keys in the fridge makes sense.

Decided to try my hand at another novel series so probably no more forthcoming Citadel subs from me for this year and next year, at least.

Honestly, I didn't really know, myself. At least not until the last few years. Growing up I was always told (and convinced) I just had "some kind of depression." It definitely explains the number of times I've found my keys in the fridge, though.
Glad it doesn't come across in my work, and even more glad you want to see more. Thank you :D

You write so effectively, I would never have guessed that you were struggling with things that include a learning disability (ADHD).  I look forward to reading more of your stuff. From over here you have always seemed solid and intelligent (which is surprisingly difficult to do on the Internet).

Constantly. My therapist keeps telling me I'm "ahead of others my age," because most people don't deal with these kinds of emotional issues until their 40s, but it's a little tough to believe when I look at my 6-month per job, paycheck to paycheck highschool dropout work history. Then other days I am overwhelmed by my own arrogance.
