Charwoman Gene said:What kind of name is Fafhrd anyway?
Sounds like you tried to create "Fred" in an MMO and that was as close as you could come.
Fritz Leiber, yes irony sarcasm
Yeah, sorry -- I missed the sarcasm; I should have picked up on the video-game reference. I've been rendered cynical by the amount of ridiculous nerd rage that propagates the forums (overuse of the word 'cool', et al).fafhrd said:Sorry. I forgot that the encrusted layers of nonsense and meta-nonsense around here make it difficult to distinguish sarcastic jocularity from actual bitter nerd rage. I'll try to use sarcasm tags in the future.
I am afraid you'll have to wait for the 5th edition for that. Then the 3D Printing and Modelling will be advanced enough to allow you using the DDI character visualizer on yourself...Thornir Alekeg said:I assume this is the marketing strategy to bring more women into the game. It might work with some of the women I know. Of course it would probably work even better if the players looked that way.
Scott_Rouse said:4e bard image revealed!
Whisperfoot said:Scott, I hate to point this out, but soon after that image, two of the three of those bards were corpses (unless this is from Once Upon A Time In Mexico, which I have not yet seen, as opposed to a similar scene in Desperado), and the one that wasn't clearly had epic levels in the Total Badass prestige class.
Einan said:But, Oh Scott Rouse and others at WOTC, there is one thing you must do if you want to make me love 4e...
You MUST make the bard cool.
No doubt. If you were to release a bard preview that make my beloved class fun to play again, I would be in your court. I would swallow the kool-aid. I would sing the fan-praises.
Oh please, oh please, make my bard cool.
Einan said:He can be as late as he needs to be, as long as he's cool. I get more grief from my gaming group when I play a bard than any time I DM and use any number of sad little D&D tropes. I love me the bard. I love his horrible singing and I love his random knowledge of strange and useless things. I just want him to be cool again.
I knew it! And I know what will happen next too! Everyone will want to play the power gamer race (kobolds on steroids) and take bard to make the band:Scott_Rouse said:
Well kick those roadies in the *** and get the show on the road!Scott_Rouse said:
You say that like it's mutually exclusive. What, only one class per CS book?qstor said:No the sword mage is....
Well that's what happens when an Epic Bard with Badass Destiny takes his "merely" Heroic colleagues on an Epic quest with an equally Epic Defender to protect them. Lesson learned, OK?Whisperfoot said:Scott, I hate to point this out, but soon after that image, two of the three of those bards were corpses..., and the one that wasn't clearly had epic levels in the Total Badass prestige class.
