I'm thinking Stout Halfling Cleric -- will need to read up on the rules again
Also the decision on a game I desperately want to make is made today (the GM did say my character was in his top 2 choices) and if I get in that, I may drop out of a few I've applied to
See below for my character Entrance
The first thing you notice about Kr'lunk is that the sun dissapears when he is around. At 8'1" and weighing in at about 500lbs, he fills his space in the world quite well. The next thing you notice about Kr'lunk is that he is ugly.
Not traditionally ugly, or had too much to drink ugly, more like his face was on fire and someone put it out with a shovel ... and he was hit with that shovel more then once. He has enlarged lower canines, they are around 4" long, the left being slightly longer then the right -- Kr'lunk thinks they make him handsome, he cleans them regularly and they are a very shiny white indeed. As for the rest of his teeth, it looks like someone grabbed a handful of slightly off white teeth (well, maybe more off brown then off white) and threw them at his open mouth ... then threw another couple of handfuls of teeth for effect.
Despite the large bumps on his head, his bad teeth and enlarged tusks, he is obviously a good looking chap. He has deep green expressive eyes, a broken (a few times) crooked nose and a few scars on top of head which can be seen through his shoulder length scraggly, unwashed what could be described as black-ish hair. There could possibly be squirrels living in it, or some type of vermin. That would explain his scratching at his head absentmindedly quite frequently.
From a distance (where he may look even more handsome, so quite a distance -- and more human-ish sized), you would notice that he has on over his "washed when it rains" sort of brownish-grey undershirt, an immaculately cleaned and serviced set of leather armour. A greatsword sticks out from behind his back which is hanging from a chain loop.
On a broad brown belt with a rather large belt pouch. (OK, so it's more like a small sack with a flap) is a short sword and a single platemail gauntlet on a leather thong, which appears to definitely not be Kr'lunk size.
Slung over one shoulder, he carries another larger sack, it is about 6' long and you'd imgine has an opening of around 2'. You are pretty sure you can see something moving in there ... or is that your imagination ???
Kr'lunk finishes off his wonderful ensemble with leather short trousers and ankle length boots ... they were both washed recently when he walked through a deep river.
Kr'lunk is normally met with a welcome cry when he reaches a new town ... something like
"Run children, run for your lives". That always makes him smile ...
which is when the parents then normally run after the children.
Kr'lunk is FUN (I did tell you that) ... he likes games and scaring children (Please see ... What me is looking like - me is da mostest Handsome One). He is a little slow at times ... OK, there are times when he is NOT slow.
He is ruthlessly loyal to his friends, children (those who haven't run away), pretty ponies and small bears, to name but a few.
Kr'lunk detests cruelty for cruelties sake, and will not even think before stepping in to "talk nicely" to someone being cruel to others.
He uses speech only because he has realised you can't get what you are after simply by bashing people over the head. OK, you can get MOST of what you want from this, but sometimes you need to be ... "a talking man" to people and things.
Kr'lunk is not your "usual" rogue. He doesn't do "languages" or "gathering information". His idea of picking pockets is simply to grab the thing with a pocket, turn it's owner upside down ... and shake vigourously for a minute or so.
He loves bunny wabbits, hamsters and puddy cats -- not just to EAT. The term killing with kindness was made for Kr'lunk, sometimes he doesn't understand his own strength ... luckily he has a large sack to keep his precious little animals in, either dead or fearing for their lives.
Anyways me is walking along and me sees da nice town wiff dem nice running away childrens and me sees da nice Shiny Pony place ... dat looks like da nice one to get some yummy fings to eat ...
"Ooh, what a pretty pony you are ..." me says to da pretty pony, and not really finking, me pulls down the Shiny Pony Tavern picture and me tries to put it in me's big sack ... me is a little sad to find the pretty pony picture doesn't fit in da big sack, so me is looking at da pretty picture and talking to him "You is da very pretty fing you are," and me's walks into da doorway ... ouch, me bangs da head, but me is OK, you not need to worries.
Me ducks da head and walks under da doorway and me waves at da nice peoples in da inside of da pretty pony place ...
Saying that, I've not played / DM'd Next yet so we'll see :0
