I Am A: True Neutral Half-Elf Bard
True Neutral characters are very rare. They believe that balance is the most important thing, and will not side with any other force. They will do whatever is necessary to preserve that balance, even if it means switching allegiances suddenly.
Half-Elves are a cross between a human and an elf. They are smaller, like their elven ancestors, but have a much shorter lifespan. They are sometimes looked down upon as half-breeds, but this is rare. They have both the curious drive of humans and the patience of elves.
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.
Two additional thoughts to all this:
- Apparently, there’s a big gaming conference going on right now, GenCon 2005. I heard about it on NPR this morning. It’s something like the 30th anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons.
- When I was a kid– junior high and early high school, actually– I played some Dungeons and Dragons (actually, Advanced D&D), but I think my favorite role playing game was Runequest, which had what we thought was a superior play system to AD&D.
Oh yeah– then I discovered girls….
