A while ago a friend of mine sent out the famous Evil Overlord List. This inspired me to look for other lists, possibly relating to AD&D, something he is somewhat interested in. I came up with something that included a questionnaire to determine character type (courtesy of neppyman).
As of today, I have found out the following about my friends:
- My best friend Heather is a Neutral Good Elf Bard Mage
- My AD&D friend and Lankhmar fan John is a Chaotic Good Elf Ranger Cleric, and husband and soul-mate to Vicky
- Vicky, his wife and soul-mate, is a Lawful Good Half-Elf Cleric Bard
When I did this on Monday, I was suspiciously close to these, so I tried again. Here is my inner self, well hidden under too much padding.
I Am A: Chaotic Good Elf Ranger Druid
Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Druids are a special variety of Cleric who serves the Earth, and can call upon the power in the earth to accomplish their goals. They tend to be somewhat fanatical about defending natural settings.
Solonor Thelandria is the Chaotic Good elven god of archery and the hunt. He is also known as the Keen Eye, the Great Archer, and the Forest Hunter. His followers respect nature, and only hunt when needed, but are quick to defend the forest from intruders. Their favorite weapon is the bow, and they tend to be extremely talented with it. Solonor Thelandria’s symbol is an arrow with green fletchings.
So between us four we have:
- two Rangers
- two Bards
- two Clerics
- one Mage
- one Druid
- three and a half Elves
- four Good people, but with a slight preponderance of chaotic behaviour.
The chaotic behaviour makes sense, but there is one individual, Vicky, who is exceedingly organised and goal-driven, to keep us in line. All we need is a good thief, and we could go a-questing. Maybe we could find or recreate the long lost symbol of Newfyndland and the Labrador!
Thief for Hyre! Good wages and a faire share of the lute. May the adventure begin.
