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.
