Drizzt

By:

Drizzt wasn’t a Paladin to start with he was a normal, chaotic good, drow fighter of Ellistra(I think that is right). He came across a party on accadent and well it went from there one day he struck a shrine of Torm and thus as his punishment he was made a paladin of El.

Special Equipment:

2x Flametounges, Chainmail+3 (Armor of Comfert and functions as a ring of protection +3 on certain spells), Portable Hole, Holy Symbole to El.

Appearance:

Drizzt is a 5’8” Drow with the normal deep purple skin color, Red eyes, and white hair. He wears his armor almost at all times, being it is armor of comfert, and caries at least one flametounge. Other than that he wears nice cloths and keeps himself nice and presentable.

Background:

Drizzt as far back as he can remember was raised by a human family that raised him like there own there he did get treated bad but nothing like when he left out on his own. His ventures have take him many places around Farun, most of which have been centered around a town called Acade(Pretty sure it really isn’t there by wizards). He has even been to Shadow Dale, where him and his party have some land. Drizzt has fallen in love with a Human Cleric, who ventures with the party, by the name of Sapphire. Drizzt’ life has been far from dull since he meet this party but they are all…his friends. Drizzt has died twice, one of which he was riped in half by a giant undead, DM saying natural 20 natural 20 natural 20 cosecutive hit. The other time he fell through a trap in the floor that was covered by an illusion. (Might at more later.)

Roleplaying Notes:

7th level(skills and powers) can cast 3 level one pally spells 3 cure light wounds and 2 2nd level spells. (Stats Str:18 split to S:16 M:18/75 Dex:18 split A:16 B:20 Con:15 split H13 F:17 Int:15 split R:13 K:17 Wis:13 split I:11 W:15 Cha:17 split L:15 A:19…just remember he started off as a fighter not a pally) He is gradualy working to his Goddesses AL of Chaotic Good from his Lawfull Good.

I'm pretty sure I've already seen a drow warrior named Drizzt from Faerun.
Other issues:
-What are "Flametongues"?
-What is "Armor of Comfort"?
-What is a "pally"?
-Who are El, Torm, and Ellistra? (Gods, presumably, but not everybody might surmise that.)

Keep trying, dude! Hope to see more submissions from you soon!

I know that there was a series of books set in Forgotten Realms that featured a drow warrior named Drizzt D'Ourden.

Faerun is the Forgotten Realms. Drizzt Do'urden is a major character in that setting.

I had it in Guidlines about stats. They are fine as an afterthought if the submitter thinks they are necessary. The way they are presented is perfectly inline with what I expect if stats are included. Concise and don't take up any room.

Very interesting thought about the naming of the character. It makes perfect sense in the context you used it. Put us off a little perhaps because we are non-game specific and non-world specific.

Makes you think about my own game. Names could be used better. Why wouldn't commoners name there offspring after famous heroes, or even villians. Would be fun to have the villians name keep popping up around the PCs.

I read the book the Crystal Shard and I didn't exactly understand it. it kind of just ran on and on. Can some one please give me a brief review. thanx

to anonymous :
The reason you had problem with the "crystal shard" is probably due to the fact that while it is a stand alone book, it is actually the 9th or 10th book in a series that revolves around Drizzt.
If you truely want more information, the authors name is R.A Salvatore.

P.S : I apologize in advance to all who the people who think that this was not the place to post this, but I like the author & the series.

I don't see why peple are bagging on him for naming his character Drizzt... as far as drow names go it could be bob, jeff or frank, or more realistically as Strolen pointed out, what else would humans name a drow child except after the famous drow, maybe it is because it is the only drow name they know, but also maybe it is an encouragment to be good and not evil.

As far as stats... ehh... i'd axe em all. no one here is impressed by off-the-shelf +1 etc items, add some flavor to them.

And still, in the line of names, it's better to name your character something that you can pronounce, not something like gar'glmb'gaglerr'ollitsukbatviaegaera.

I swear this is the winner of the most votes on a post award. Of course, then look at its score.

Asides from most of our knee jerk reactions about Drow, there is nothing interesting about this character. Well there are things that could be interesting, but they are not fleshed out enough to be interesting.

This is bad. Can you have more of a cut out copy of the original Drizzt by RA Salvatore? Call him a different class like Pally but the obvious plagerism makes me give this a zero!
Name,good vs evil,fighting style. Good thing you didn't mention his magically summoned beast friend "Puma".

Ah, the Citadel classic and the most read submission on this site. MoonHunter has spoken about 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 benchmarks: This here then must be the 1.5 benchmark :)

It features:
-Drow
-Dual wielded scimitars... flaming even.
-system speech
-dice speech
-generic magic items with just mathematical descriptions

At least it is fairly long :o and somewhat legible.

It serves as the perfect example of 1.5. Well, at least in my opinion.

The irony to this, it is one of the most ill spoken submissions about how not to be yet it is by far the most read submission. I would only give it a 1 but the fact that perhaps people are getting an idea about what NOT to submit, this could be a helpful submission.

My main comment about this post is to not post your own characters, just like I always worry about DMs using their old PCs as NPCs. It can be done, but you need discipline, and distance to do a good job.

wow, this is utterly amazing. this poor sole borrows a name for his character like everyone has done, and gets flamed more that all of you, by your mom for not taking the out the trash. if the author named his character something like vrillin, pharaun, v'olen no one would have said anything.

it is sad how you all flame for plagiarising a name, when everyone has plagiarised something. some people are not great when making a name...

to the above poster look how i spelled plagiarise, it is correct structure of the word. it is recommended to learn to spell before you criticise.

to the author: keep trying and do not get discuraged by idiots that have read some books and think they know EVERYTHING. i personally would take a drow the pally way cause i typically play evil characters, and i think pallys like it in the ass. so don't listen to my ranting and play your toon the way you like.

my two cents, so let the flaming begin.

Actually he is being flamed for basically copying a book character and claiming it as his own. He did not even file off the serial numbers enough NOT to be obvious. People would flame someone who posted up either Skywalker, Sherlock Homes, or Conan.

As a note: If you are going to post Barbarian Horde, who ever you are, please do so with some some semblance of punctuation, capitaliztation, and sentence structure. We would, more likely, take you seriously.

"it is recommended to learn to spell before you criticise."

Aright Barbarian Horde. Along the lines of your above statement, learn to CAPITALIZE before you criticise. We don't ask for perfect spelling or grammer, but we request that you at least attempt to capitalize/puntuate properly. And while it may be true that everyone plagiarises, we still have the offenses of system specific, very minimal character development, being brought back to life (repetedly), and generally sounding like on of my PCs made it.

sorry about posting under Barbarian Horde, but gotta do it again.

to pariah: "Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." is the quote i think you were going for, at least i would have. as for my sentence structure, spelling, grammar...it is there and fine. i just don't capitalize, and i won't because it because it is wrong to give those letters power over the little ones. but why not ask for perfect spelling and grammar if you are going to flame me for only being capitalized impaired.

anyway, the point. to me it sounded like the author lacked a lot of imagination, but to his credit he tried to take an archetype and make his own character. so i was trying to help defend that scenario.

however, i could've been way out in left field and the author could be stupid.

the name drizzt means finder of dreams or dream hunter.

And what is the moral of this story?
It does not matter how good you write. Your ratings may be a total disaster, your body of work a total disgrace, but if you manage to provoke and incite you will be a bestseller.

This here character represents something in my opinion. I'm glad we have kept it and not deleted it. It's important to show all the faces of the citadel. Anyway, the reason it gets so many hits is probably because people Google the name and it shows up here.

Man-Eating Grapes

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.

The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
