I'd either be a Vulpine, http://forum.mydndgame.com/index.php/topic,136.0.html , using a modified version of the NPC Adept class, http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5284212#post5284212 , or possibly Druid or Cleric levels, or a Fenneckin, http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104140 , Generic Spellcaster, Archivist or Wizard. (If I had to narrow it down, I think I'd sooner be a Cleric as a Vulpine and a Generic Spellcaster as a Fenneckin).

(The creature with the overly big hand is a Vulpine and the other one is a Fenneckin; Ninja Muffin drew them: http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/2232/racesal4.jpg .)

If I had to stick to things which have actually been published, I'd most want to be a Lupin Cleric of Ehlonna. I'd also want to be a Gnoll or Phanaton due to considering them to be cute.

Half Dragon(white) Sand Giant, Fighter 20/Barbarian 20/War Hulk 10 with All TWF feats, Monkey Grip, and Oversized weapon fighting. I'd dual-wield golems like mauls, be immune to fire, fly, have over 1000 hp, a Str in the 60s, and no stat below 18. And... its totally do-able in an epic level evil campaign. And have the wizard cast Burn to Bare Earth, centred on me. I'll take no damage, but become a walking target point for one of the most destructive spells with a 1 minute cast time ever.

Myself, I'd stick with a plain old Swordsage. My ideal fighting style is Drunken Kung-Fu like Brad Wong out of DOA. There's something extremely charming about stumbling into your enemy and beating them up before they realize you're not actually drunk. Or the look on your face when you beat them when you actually ARE drunk. So anything focused on Counters is good for me.

It's actually a Flaw printed in Dragon Magazine. They did a bunch of joke Commoner-only flaws (things like Chicken-Infested, Pig Bond, Delicious, Incomprehensible Accent ...) for an April Fools' Day joke. Of course the law of unintended consequences prevailed, and somebody has figured out a way to make a game-breakingly powerful character out of it.

For my own inner character: Bard/Seeker of the Song Story. Focused on Perform (Writing), Words of Creation in the build somewhere.

EDIT: I take "Inner Character" to be the ideal to which I aspire, not an actual gameplay representation of myself. That would be somewhere around an Expert3.

I don't think we're actually supposed to be genuinely trying to represent who we really are <^.~> most of us would be experts or commoners. *Maybe* a few Warriors.

Spellscale Demilich Mystic 30 - Mystic being a class created with the Shadowcraft Studios Class Construction Engine for a high-powered game. Dual-progression (arcane and divine) base class, spontaneous CHA-based casting (with the spell level progression of prepared casters), and... not really much else in the way of class features, besides no ASF in Light Armor.

With Automatic Quicken Spellx3 and a single Epic spell - 'Nailed to the Sky'.
