Triple Toon Tuesday: Smoothshot, Dojin, and Lady Grey! (Breachworld)

In celebration of the Breachworld website launching (see link below), and because I’ve been itching to write up a couple of new characters for said setting, this Toon Tuesday I offer 3 brand new, fully written and playable Breachworld residents! There is one starting “level” character, one moderate, and one advanced (there isn’t a level system, abilities and skills are upgraded via character points, or CP.) Be sure to check out the website (which looks pretty shiny on my tablet) and think about preordering a copy for yourself (if you haven’t already!)

Toon Tuesday: Snow Bison the Mastodonoid Animal Shaman (Rifts)

Brace yourself for a huge post! I’ve decided to leave the starting fetishes out of this character write up because a Mastodonoid is powerful enough in its own right, so they probably would not see the point in bothering the spirits for a bonus they dont really need. According to Mr. Siembieda, author of the Mastodonoid race, once they find a mate, they are typically together for life. Therefore, I decided to write up a second Mastodonoid as a Lifemate to this one, rather than going the easy backstory route of their mate dying. This pair would be optimal for the role playing couple, something my spouse and I have tried out in the past with quite a bit of success. To any couples who want to play a couple in game, remember to keep the campaign and your personal life separate, and also, try to play characters that complement each other. The Lifemate (mentioned in more detail below) can be found here.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts World Book 30: D-Bees of North America, Rifts Book of Magic, and Rifts World Book 15: Spirit West (hereby refered to as SW).
Recommended Setting: Incredibly unsuited to any hot or warm climates (no deserts or tropics), but well suited to any arctic environments. Due to their simple nature, they are better suited to a traveling party that does not spend much time in large towns or cities, but very suited to an indigenous style campaign. Would be best set in a party involving their Lifemate, though this can be altered. Mastodonoids are ridiculously powerful and should not be paired with average adventuring parties.

Toon Tuesday: Moose the Gnome Bard (Pathfinder)

Had a busy week and so went with a suggestion from a friend; he wanted to see a Gnomish Bard! And, considering my love for Gnomes and my past Bardic characters, who was I to refuse? I like to think that there are the classic Gnomes with funny sounding names (I.e., Stumbleduck, Quickwidget, etc.), and also the more modern Gnomes with “fantasy” names (like those detailed in the book or my last Gnome post, “Ziznert Halbunk”.) I decided to go with funny this time around. Also, this one ended up being longer than expected, even for a spell caster, so some spell detail was cut – though the basic information is there and the full information is linked.

Game: Pathfinder by Paizo.
Books Needed: Pathfinder Role Playing Game Core Book First Edition, and D20PFSRD (primarily the Bard page.)
