I Am A: True Neutral Human Ranger/Rogue (2nd/2nd Level)


Ability Scores:

Strength-12

Dexterity-11

Constitution-14

Intelligence-14

Wisdom-16

Charisma-17


Alignment:
True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.


Race:
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.


Primary Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.


Secondary Class:
Rogues have little in common with each other. While some - maybe even the majority - are stealthy thieves, many serve as scouts, spies, investigators, diplomats, and simple thugs. Rogues are versatile, adaptable, and skilled at getting what others don't want them to get. While not equal to a fighter in combat, a rogue knows how to hit where it hurts, and a sneak attack can dish out a lot of damage. Rogues also seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to avoiding danger. Experienced rogues develop nearly magical powers and skills as they master the arts of stealth, evasion, and sneak attacks. In addition, while not capable of casting spells on their own, a rogue can sometimes 'fake it' well enough to cast spells from scrolls, activate wands, and use just about any other magic item.

I always read back a few entries, get embarrassed and want to delete them. But I don't. It's been YEARS since I updated and things are going pretty well now for the most part. I have a pig and I still have that boy and that dog. I'm living in Montana for the time being (fuck it's dull here) but it's good. We're making a live for ourselves, trying out being "responsible" for once and all the while hoping the world doesn't end. It's weird. I've come leaps and bounds since my last entry with my art career and all that. I'm a professional performer and tattoo artist- perhaps one day I will combine the two. However, now after a few years of off and on living in New Orleans, everywhere else seems dull. The last year has been a hiatus of sorts, trying to figure out what direction to go... It's weird and hard but it feels like things have been coming together. Ahh life...

Anyway maybe I'll write in here a bit more. Maybe not. It would be neat to bring this old journal back to life! However I am heading to work in a bit and I doubt this thing will get any attention for a while. We shall see.

It's been a while, hasn't it?

Well, it looks like a lot has changed since my last update... how long ago was that anyway? Things have certainly changed for the better. I'm living and working as a full time clown and tattoo artist. I've been doing tattoos now for over a year and I've been a clown... well... for three years? But I'm finally performing on real stages and being recognized for my talents. That feels great. Also, I've found my way into a really amazing relationship with a man whom supports me in all of my goals. Horray for me! So, now I've got a boy, and a dog (Goblin) and I had a pretty little piglet until about a month ago. Her name was Princess Pickles and she was a 6 month old mini-potbelly piglet. Sadly and unfortunately she ate a toxic mushroom that very quickly ended her short life. I've never mourned so much for anything so small. But, our plans are to buy a school bus after this season and I'm gonna get me two more little piglets. Oh! I almost forgot to mention, I've been living in New Orleans, though I've been on the road for a while now. I'd like to say it's my new home, since it's one of the only places I miss when I'm away, but it's only been less than a year. It's a really good place for me and I can't wait to go back. We've been on the road all summer. We did a tour through the midwest, and now we're on the west coast making money and visiting family for the holidays. Winter's creeping up so quickly... Oh how does the time pass.


ANYWAY! I just wanted to pop in, and perhaps there are some folks out there who still read this thing. If so, please drop a comment! I'm kind of curious who keeps up with this stuff anymore. Perhaps I'll post more again this year, who knows?

Primary Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.


Secondary Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting.

There is a revolution going on in Egypt right now. Most people have no idea what it's like in this part of the world. The President, Hosni Mubarak, has been in power for thirty years and the people of Egypt are tired of his corruption. To learn more about the situation, read the Wikipedia article. Here'a a video that was made yesterday summarizing some of the recent events regarding the situation.



This is important shit. There have recently been similar events in Greece and the Ukraine. Finally, people around the world are standing up for their rights. It's incredible. How would you feel if this was happening where you lived? What side would you be on? How do you think you would react? People die all of the time, but how incredible to die for something you believe in: freedom.

This is inspiring and saddenning at the same time. I wish the best for the people of Egypt. I hope that they reach their goals and abolish the tyranny that holds them down. I wish resolution for all the families that have or are about to lose some of the people they love in these events. I hope that they succeed in their mission, and bring justice to the peoples of Egypt.

Thanks for reading.
