Triple Nerd Score

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Fighter (4th Level)

Ability Scores:







Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Fighters can be many things, from soldiers to criminal enforcers. Some see adventure as a way to get rich, while others use their skills to protect t…

Just one of those things

I work from home quite often (like today) and there are some things you hear at home you just don't hear when you're at the office. Example: I'm sitting at my desk. I face the windows and have my back to the door. I hear the door open and little footsteps enter the room. "Dad? You wanna know why I'm naked?"

Wrights, Wrongs, Faith and Politics

A few things here. I certainly understand his preaching about the plight of poor blacks in America.

But...(you knew that was coming didn't you?)

I have never and would never attend a church that was so political. The closest thing I've ever experienced was when our priest told people to read and vote on a particular bill. He did not tell them how to vote just to please read the bill and vote on it. The rest, he assumed, would be obvious. Just as I'd flee any church flogging Barack Obama I would similarly leave in disgust at any church pushing any Republican or Libertarian candidate no matter how much I supported them.

I've never been comfortable with the shouting, sweating preacher. Whenever I see the videos of the shouting, sweating Imams it gives me a shudder. I see a wild eyed zealot. I imagine if someone in Iraq were watching Rev. Wrong Wright shouting and sweating in a language he didn't understand it might give him pause as well. I understand that t…
