    The most memorable NPC I've ever run was a stuck-up mute female half-elf wizard. Her raven did her talking for her, and she prepared all her spells Silenced. Only then is a 7th level wizard balanced for a group of 3rd level PCs .

    When it wasn't convenient for her to have her familiar, she just tapped her quarterstaff around. She would'nt bring herself to the level of playing charades, and it really pissed off the PCs.

    If you want to use my idea, go Arcane Trickster. And see if your GM would allow you to make Silent Spell not adjust the SL of a spell because of your handicap (you're already taking a feat for it).

    And if you also put your hands in front of your mouth? Should give you a bit more variety with notes.

    Yes, it has more to do with the mouth than the tongue. You can also use object like a blade of grass held lenght wise between your thumbs, or your hands and fingers. It just takes time and effort to master.

    I am currently playing a mute ex-slave myself. Being wise like AuroraGyps, I too asked ENW for advice. A link to the thread is here:

    http://www.enworld.org/forums/showthread.php?t=73977

    And here is the storyhour for the campaign:

    http://www.enworld.org/forums/showthread.php?t=76667

    Basically, I ended up relying on sign language (on which I spent skill points, and his "friend" in the game did too), simple gestures, and a signal whistle to take the place of shouting from a distance. Haven't had to use the whistle yet, as the group has stuck together for the most part.

    I'm having a good time with it, hope you do too.

    The title of this thread made me wonder: can a person smell with no nose?

    It sounds like a fun character concept.

    That depends on where exactly IN the nose the nerve endings that recognize smell are...

    When you have a clogged nose, you cant smell anything, which leads me to belive that the nerve endings which recognize smell are deeper in the nasal cavity. If they are far back enough that they are in your skull, and not in the cartilage that makes the nose, then yes, you could smell without a nose.

    That depends. How often does he shower?

    I don't have a new group yet, but I'm working on it. There were a couple of people in that group who seemed more simpathetic and I'm planning to send them an e-mail to see if they still like to hang out. It wasn't a pleasant learning experience, but I'm taking the lesson to heart. Thanks for the words of encouragement... posting about what happened on ENWorld helped alot.

    I still keep coming up with PC ideas though. Probably because of all the reading I do. I'll be very ready when I find a new group.
