Through Life’s Adventure, What Do You Do When You Lose Your Character Sheet?

Tomorrow is Saturday. Saturday is RPG day for me and my friends. Tomorrow we play a D&D/Pathfinder Module we began for Carlos’ birthday extravaganza. Fredora Thunderbolt is my alter ego in this game. She is a halfling ranger/bard/rogue because, in her younger years she was headed down a dark path and did a bit of stealing to fill her belly and sang a few songs in taverns to keep a roof over her head, especially in winter. Fredora then met a Ranger and, one thing led to another, Fredora decided on the more peaceful life of being a Ranger than being a roguish bard. She has been happy every since and has had many adventures – at least in her back-story – and lived to tell about them.

Now Fredora is on one of the biggest adventures of her little life – finding out why Giants are collecting and raiding the surrounding areas. Their actions are not normal Giant behavior. There appears to be a rhyme and reason for what they are doing. What is it? Just what are those rascally giants planning?

Because Fredora is small she must be very smart to keep from being smooshed. She is also an excellent archer, which helps there is a bit of distance between her and her enemy…if possible. I really like playing her. I have lost my character sheet!

This piece of information has not “devastated” me, but it sure has given me a swift kick in the head. For this character I tried keeping it on-line and on-computer instead of a paper character sheet. I used the 3.5 Character Generator and the Pathfinder SRD because it is easier for me to look through the books on-line and not physically because my hands have not been great for the last little while. It is also much easier for me to cross-reference information in play, too.

I really love the 3.5 Character Generator because after plugging in all the information it generates the character for you. I even went so far to purchase an access key so I could use it again and again. The only problem is, I have lost the key and now cannot access my character. Carlos is having a wonderful time telling me I-told-you-so. {sigh}

So, now I must make up a new character or re-make Fredora. I am leaning toward a re-make because this character is fun to play and she fits in well with the crew of dwarves and humans currently in the party. If I am not mistaken, Fredora is the only dedicated archer in the group, too.

Oh, and Fredora’s animal companion is a sparrow. I thought it was very appropriate for a halfling ranger to have a sparrow to do some spying and distracting. Hopefully Fi, the sparrow, will be small enough to annoy a giant and not get killed too easily.

Cheyenne is coming over tonight to help with the character re-make and just hanging out. The Menagerie is going to be on MeTV‘s Friday Night Movie. This will be a perfect geeky backdrop for making characters. Yeah, we really aren’t very far away from the entire gang of The Big Bang Theory.
