Ok, I've posted on the IC thread. I see that one other person has also done so.
I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I am a librarian by profession. For a hobby, I maintain a blog, which can be found here: https://overthetopepicroleplaying.wordpress.com/
I haven't posted anything recently, although that will soon be remedied. But the posts that ARE there will tell you a lot about me, and about my gaming style, and my background. There is even a CV, if you want to read a bunch of boring stuff about my various skill sets.
My account name here on Piazza is the same as my account name on EN World: Tellerian Hawke. (That's the name of my first, favorite, and most powerful D&D character.) So if you find yourself on either forum, and you're wanting to ask me something, I'm pretty easy to find.
In this game, I'm playing a Half-Ogre fighter (Knight) who looks more like a huge human than an Ogre; unlike most Half-Ogres, Tim's Human side won out in terms of physical appearance, hence the CHA score (even with -1 pentalty) of 13. Tim is an honorable, stand-up kind of guy, but he has a few annoying quirks, and can be a bit arrogant at times. But he has a good heart, when it comes down to it. If you'd like to read his entire background, feel free to do so; it's on the Facebook page under the FILES section.
When it comes to gameplay, I want to assure you about a few things:
1) I am a team player; I won't try to dominate the game, or ruin anyone's fun.
2) I stay true to character; for example, Tim's main weapon is an engraved Greatsword of good quality. It costs 63 gold pieces. But Tim wouldn't take ten thousand gold for it, because it bears his family name, and has sentimental value to him. Anyone who would try and take it from him had best be prepared to lay down their life in the attempt.
3) I've got your back; Tim is a knight, and he acts the part. He never leaves a man behind. SCARLET CROSS LEADS THE WAY! HOO AH!
So, that's my two cents, and I'd like to hear from everyone else. Who are ya? Whatcha up to? What's your gaming style?
