I had thought of making an aasimar who was descended from a lillend, rainbow wings and even scales on her arms and back. Sadly, like many ideas lately, I have problems with sticking with new characters. But still, you should do it. It shouldn't be embarrassing, it is definitely a nice idea. :)
Haha, I know the feeling! I'm very much the same. And, thank you :) I might consider making another incarnation of her, should I get that much kismet again!

One word: gnome lucador wrestler
Justice is not neccesarily honourable, it is a tolerable business, in essence you tolerate honour until it impedes justice, then you do what is right.

Spelling is not necessarily correct :)

Isn't that already Gwain? Or is it lucador that /is/ a gnome you're thinking, instead of wrestler that competes againsy lucador gnomes.

Whenever Gwain eats a gnome he absorbs their wrestling skills... so yes

There are actually two aasimar siblings in game that derive from Lillend(It might actually be Couatl, can't remember offhand). Scales, and all :D It's a lot of fun with the various types of aasimar out there! It's a very nice idea, and definitely not embarrassing.

The embarrassment definitely came from me being overly sensitive to criticism someone else had of the character, which is ridiculous, because you do you, right?! Y'all are making me want to remake her, hehe :)

Been having an idea for a half-orc paladin. But after thinking past rp and going into stat and skills.....it just doesn't work. The stats needed for paladin can be rough, and -2 in 2 stats and only a bonus to one does not help at all. The bonus to Str cannot really fully be utilized unless I go with a lower INT, which means painful skill leveling. So, idea shelved.......sadly.

That was indeed a temptation to do.

A neutral evil cleric of Waukeen who essentially works the FK equivalent of customer service. On the outside, she'd be bubbly and so nice, but when not in the public eye, she just wants to stab everyone.

Someone clearly just had one of those customers. Our sympathies are with you.

You get me.

Also, a water genasi cleric of Talona named Salmonella. Think I could get that name approved...?
