View Full Version : An Adventurer is You!

There are a lot of these. I'm not asking about the 'you' you'd for a Real-Life version of you, I'm asking who you'd be as a PC. Not who you should be according to your stats, but which class you think closest fits the abilities you have. There will be exaggerations.

Ignore BAB, Ignore Saves. You don't have to be human.

Me? Probably Factotum 1/Paladin 3. I don't get sick, I don't get scared, and I have too many random skills for anything else as a 1st level.

I'd probably have to say Cleric1/Factotum1/Paladin1. I'm religous, tend to be a white knight sometimes, and have lots of random skills. Also, I tend to change my interests a lot, hence 1 level in everything.

If I existed in the world of D&D, I would be an apprentice wizard. I can't really pick a level since I can't cast spells.

Using 32 point buy, and 3 levels, I'll try.

Wizard 3

Dex: 16
Int: 18
Wis: 9
Cha: 8

I'm actually dedicated and studious, when I need to be, so I fit wizard. My best stat is definitely intelligence, since I've always done well in academia. I also consider myself dexterous, since I play drums, can do multiple things at once, etc. Con... I dunno, hard to measure. Strength, to be honest, would likely be lower, but I'm not wasting any points. Whenever I look for stuff, I miss the most obvious things. But... I do see things out of the corner of my eyes quite well. But then I often don't hear things. So yeah, negative wisdom. And I simply don't make friends well. Or do well at parties. Or social situations. ;_;

Too lazy for feats and stuff.

Some blend of monk and ranger.

I'm a natural born fighter, and tough as nails. I also seem to be a little sharper up-stairs than many of the people around me, in both knowledge and will & awareness.

Something Int or Cha based that doesn't care much of Wis and uses books. So Wizard, Wu Jen or Factotum (would Archivist also work? I forgot what they actually depend on Wis for).

Considering I can't cast spells, Factotum fits the bill. One that does a lot of skill retraining on a weekly basis because of some Flaw making it necessary.

Race? I don't know, but Human probably still fits best off the top of my head. I don't know of any +Int/-Wis races.

I can see several possibilities.

Monk 1, with not very impressive stats.

Another possible route is Expert 1, with 4 skill points each placed in Profession(cameraman), Profession(writing), Profession(Director), Knowledge(History), Knowledge(Religion), Knowledge(Arcana), at least two points each in Knowledge(Film History) and Knowledge(Anime), and some other things. Possibly one other skill, though I doubt my intelligence is high enough to get anymore than a +2 bonus.

For feats, probably Improved Unarmed Strike/Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Sai) and Skill Focus( Profession [Writing] ). I already have proficiency with quarterstaff as an expert, since they have automatic simple weapon proficiency, so I don't need a feat for that. I'd probably have at least one flaw, and as such the feat I'd end up getting would be something like Research from the ECS.

If I had to be medieval in my professions, just change the cameraman to something like perform (oratory). Change the modern knowledge skills to other sorts, perhaps about obscure stories or the planes.

I'd probably end up some sort of historian/record keeper, with the skills I have. An expert one!


Anyway, those are two that I see. For something a little more fanciful, though, I'd probably end up Wizard 1.

My class would likely be rogue with more of a diplomat/politician angle.

I stand by my ability scores from the other thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=167962).

Str 10
Dex 11
Con 8
Int 17
Wis 14
Cha 9

Class? I don't know. Factotum fits me quite well. Wizard is perhaps more what I would be if I had been born and grown up in a D&D world. That, or mystic theurge. Or a very suboptimal multiclass of these (more suboptimal than mystic theurge itself :smalltongue:). But I would definitely be Lawful Good, and would dream of being a paladin. Heck, I'd get in arguments with (or on behalf of) paladins about appropriate behaviour. :smallbiggrin:

Me as a PC

NG Monk 1/ Ninja 1

DEX 13
INT 16
CHA 14

I have high ranks in Tumble, Escape Artist and Diplomacy. I'm very willful (Iron Will as a feat) but my common sense takes a backseat when need be. I'll take heroic but stupid actions at times. Listen is also a very high skill for mw.

Naw, I can only seduce them converse with them intelligently on a daily basis.

Not gonna do stats. I'd have too many classes to be optimal at anything. Definitely wizard and bard. Something that fights too, but I'm not sure what.

2010-09-12, 10:23 AM
Psion (Shaper) 3. Stats, assuming elite array:

Strength 10
Dexterity 8
Constitution 12
Intelligence 15
Wisdom 14
Charisma 13

Not wizard, because I am too lazy to have a class that bases on remembering complex rituals, incantations and gestures. Psions on the other hand are all about using raw intellect to force reality to do what you want.

Erudite, pleading with my DM for Spell-to-Power variant. I'm voracious about knowledge, but I view the world in more of a sci-fi sense than a traditional wizardly sense, despite wanting to include that kind of worldview in my scientific system. Also, hopelessly ambitious and as such plan my life by TO rather than PO.

There's a funny concept: "Trying to be Pun-Pun... in a world without Sarrukhs."

2 years in the military (including 6 months in Iraq), musically talented and a university degree. I think that'll make me a:

Ranger/bard/expert with focus on survival and knowledge skills.

2010-09-12, 12:34 PM
University degree, but always butting heads with the powers that be; not religious, not strong or overly healthy, but well liked by same level co-works.

I'm going to say wizard/bard with skills in move silent, perform(oratory), none in deplomacy or intimidate. I'm both naturally smart and learned smart, and have leader qualities, but no one listens to me (which leads to lots of "I told you so's" so I'd say I would be some sort of int caster, but I don't know of any spontanious ones, so that explains wizard and the cha is from others liking me but not superiors.

So yeah... Wiz/Bard is the best I can think of away from books. I'm a smart, learned, sneaky so and so that can lead, but doesn't have the chance given to him to do so. Probably because it's such an ineffectice combo.

Awww, I think I made myself depressed.

Edit: not sure about level. Since afb, not sure of comparable usable skills bs spell usage.
