Discussion: Your Next Character

If your group, for some reason, decided they were starting a new campaign of your most played game today what would you play? Do you have a character waiting in your mind to come out? Who are they? What do they do?

When I started writing this topic I was sure that a Mirumoto Bushi of the Dragon Clan would be my answer, but the one I'm going to go with is a Crane Duelist. I'm not sure of name, sex, or some other key pieces of character fluff but the character would be a Kakita Bushi from the Kakita Family. I would try for the Empress Guard school more for story reasons than power in the mechanics.

I've played a Crane before, but not in a long time, and that game only ran for a handful of sessions. I think I'd like to delve into the clan with more depth and really see if I can sink into the character. It beats being some smelly mountain hobo at the very least, right?


  1. I actually have no idea, for once I just don't know what I'd play. It'd probably just be something to fill out the group at this point. I'm kind of uninspired.

  2. In my Pathfinder game I have a backup who levels along with my current character (so he is ready if I ever fall to a TPK.) He is an Elven Fighter-Mage, in training to become an Eldritch Knight. I envision him to be kind of like a Jedi Padawan, on the way to becoming a full Jedi, with the Eldritch Knight being the fantasy equivalent.
