I've offically picked MY favourite character(s). Corvan and Korgash, the brothers barbarian. Mostly because they're the requisite bumbling comedy duo of the group, and they occasionally channel Gerout. They're both human, right?
It's REALLY hard not to see them as slightly green with a bit underbite.

I am truly looking forward to the site art portraying them in such wonderful poses as "comedy stuck in the door" as they both try to dart through at the same time.

Morrwins great also but you should have done that thing you were going to do in the church, in Session 5 (can't remeber if it is in general release yet). I think that your character seems that she is playful and would do that sort of thing. :D

Oops! Uhmmm... is it too late to say I think Morwen's fantastic as well?
You just need to get as "into" playing her as you were with Feylin -- as you've said yourself... (worried glance)

I agree... Once you "find" Morwen, Lindsay, you'll be the hands on favorite..

But to me, you'll always be Feylin (I can't TELL you how often you get me laughing in WLD)

I like all the chaotic characters. The LN ones are a bit anal (perfect roleplaying guys!) and I suspect that Hal actually wept after session 5, seeing the 1/2 the party go one way, the plot the other...

... yeah, now that you mention it, there's some truth to that.
i searched the multiverse for a less homoerotic picture of two gladiators, here it is. they are whispering together.

they chose similar feats such as

improved grapple
quick draw
"mounted combat"
rapid reload
improved unarmed strike (crotch)
skill focus (ride)
spell penetration
craft staff
enlarge spell
widen spell

be that interpreted as it might

Sorry guys but this ain't funny no more! Till now I didn't know that this community is anti-gay and I'm seriously annoyed by this childish posts on this topic. HaHaHa two men kissing each other what a lough.... HaHaHa they're gay.... Cmon we're living in a new millenium and everybody is free to choose his own way of living his life and this includes sexual orientation and hobbies and all other regions of the private life. This RPG community could also be dissed by other people because there are not only gay stereotypes but also rolplayer sterotypes such as the completly associal nerd gamer who will never find a girl in his entire life and who is not able to talk about another topic than RPG or Startrek and so on.

So I wanna ask you: Do you think It is funny to discredit people in such a primitive way?

So please Hal could you remove these pics above and delete these fascistic posts?

I do not entirely agree that this discussion is anti gay in any fashion, however as you seem to be taking offence at the pictures, I have changed those :D

Now everyone is happy :D

Lets hope you never find the picture wars posts :D

Hal :hal:

PS The edit to the post was part of the Gerout Profanity Game which I will have to set a new word for :D

FIrst, Hal, I'm impressed...

You managed to actually make the pictures more disturbing...

And to Baltasch...

I we were anti-gay, the jokes would not have been "hahahaha"...

And come one, homo-erotic half orc ncest is funny... I don't care who you are, that's funny right there (Larry the Cable Guy refferance).

And while I agree that word-play is primative humor (He who would pun would pick a pocket), I still can't see how it could be offensive unless unless you were looking to be offended.

And for the record, just because someone can choose to do what they like doesn't mean I can't get a laugh out of it...

ANd yes.... Those two in the original second pic are getting more than I've gotten in ages... The irony isn't lost on me... :)

Yeah, I've got to agree that baltasch is misinterpreting things a bit. I can understand why he'd dislike seeing people expressing an urge to vomit in response to homoerotic imagery, but then I'm a guy who can stare into the abyss without flinching. For most folks, not wanting to look at something isn't the same thing as hating it. And neither is finding humor in it.

Brilliant, brilliant image replacements. I didn't see the originals, and I didn't even realize there'd been an edit until Hal copped to it. I thought people were just reacting with (entirely approprate) distaste to the Care Bear images.

Oops! Uhmmm... is it too late to say I think Morwen's fantastic as well?
You just need to get as "into" playing her as you were with Feylin -- as you've said yourself... (worried glance)

Yeah, I've noticed that, too. Morwen definitely doesn't seem to be working out as instantly as Feylin did. She needs a schtick to achieve Feylin levels of awesomeness. (Hey, do they even use the word "schtick" in England?) Morwen's mostly just been reacting to stuff, while Feylin always had her own agenda, which often had nothing to do with the way a standard dungeon crawl is "supposed" to be played. Morwen's definitely got potential, though--she's a disaster-prone pirate mage who throws exploding fish at people!--and will rock hard when Lindsay figures out what goals she should have beyond going with the flow and hoping to gather money to replace her sunken ship.

Fin and Steve D both seem to have a better idea of what their characters' want to do in any given situation, so far, and they've been good fun. But I think my favorite member of the party isn't even a PC: Ernst is just great.
