High Level Toon Tuesday: Elder Briarhorn the Tauren Healer/Druid of the Wild (Warcraft)

Oh man, I accidentally scheduled this for the wrong day of the week! Sorry about that, folks, I hope you can enjoy a Toon Tuesday on a Wednesday…

While I have not yet played the Warcraft RPG, I did play World of Warcraft for a number of years. I didn’t even start off with a Tauren Druid; I originally played a Troll Mage on my Husband’s account until we realized that we each needed our own account so we could raid together. I created Briarhorn, took a long, long time to raise him to max level (restoration isn’t ideal for leveling, and this was before dual specialization), and quickly became the main tank healer in our progression guild (and then a fairly well known healer on our server). I related to that big, gentle cow in many ways; he was a large part of my life (social and otherwise), and while I don’t play the game anymore, every time I cracked open the RPG I felt compelled to write him up. It’s about time that I actually did, and as a prestige class like he deserves. I hope you enjoy him as much as I did, because he is exactly the type of character I love and play best.

Toon Tuesday: Grindgear the Goblin Tinkerer (Warcraft)

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Warcraft RPG character, and I so enjoyed the in depth look at Gobbies during the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm expansion. So I scribbled up one of the special “Tinker” classes, because Goblin Engineering may not always be useful, but it will always result in a rather entertaining boom. I also recently upgraded to 4E for Dungeons and Dragons, which I know many gamers did not enjoy, but many still did. I feel it’s better organized that previous editions, and the art is certainly a welcome change; still trying it out, so we’ll see how it affects future characters (this character is not affected as Warcraft RPG is compatible with 3.5E not 4E.)

Game: White Wolf Publishing’s Warcraft RPG
Books Needed: World of Warcraft RPG Core Book (First Edition), and Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook (3.5E).
Recommended Setting: Any starting adventure group of either faction.

High Level Toon Tuesday: Vorrk the Orc Blademaster (Warcraft)

This will be my first character post that does not start as a fresh level one toon, rather a prestige class with a total level count of 10! Originally, I was just going to write up an Orc Barbarian or Shaman, but something about “Blademaster” just had a nice ring to it. “Vorrk the Orc”, heh. Would the Two-handed Weapon Mastery Blademaster skill and Exotic Weapons Proficiency: Thorium feat stack (with Vorrk, that would add a 4x STR MOD bonus to damage, 2x from Two-handed Weapon Mastery and 2x from Exotic Weapons Proficiency: Thorium)? Due to the unpopularity of Warcraft RPG, I am sadly without answer. So I’d leave it up to the DM (I would personally allow it, especially with a Prestige class.)

Game: White Wolf Publishing’s Warcraft RPG
Books Needed: World of Warcraft RPG Core Book (First Edition), and Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook (3.5 Edition).
Recommended Setting: Either in a campaign with a starting level of 10 or as an NPC (or optional villian if used in an Alliance campaign.) Best suited to Horde based campaigns, perhaps with a wartime, fighting arena, bounty hunter, or other similar campaign theme. Can function in all but the most extreme climates.
