Got a little tangled with the students yesterday so I need to play catch up
Day 7 - Favourite Character.
This is a hard one. I am going to take it as one of my characters and I am going to say that it was my character Mirra from my long running game of Rolemaster many a moon ago before I started committing everything to audio (which is a shame). She started out as a High Warrior Monk and was extremely adept at punching and kicking her way through problems. She has a dangerous and fatal curiosity to the point that she would rather try to start a conversation with monsters that fight them. I had a list on the back of my character sheet of monsters I had chatted with. This curiosity led to more than a few scouting missions with or without the party knowledge and during one of those she got into a fight and had to survive a few rounds without party back up.
During the fight she was subject to a Rune of Cruel Blinding which essentially removed her eyes as if she had never had any. On the plus side, she was a High Warrior Monk and got the skill Spatial Location Awareness really cheap and already had it at a pretty decent level so she was not a dead loss in combat and spent a very long time completely blind and still effective in the party.
The party were no where near the level required to regrow eyes so I settled in to be blind for the long haul. In a particularly deep and dank dungeon I stumbled onto an intelligent sword, crafted for thieves in the ancient times. We spoke and it was drawn to my innate curiosity and need to explore and we made a deal. It would show me how to become a master Thief and I would take it on my travels.
At that point my class changed and I started picking up Thief skills. The sword was aware of its surroundings and acted as my eyes when it was needed.
We had many high adventures and it was awesome
