    Hey @Scourge, and others... Thank you! But... don't bother. I failed to get into the character. I always involve some roleplaying in my runs, so this was an important issue for me. Finbar was simply too gimmicky to me. My main objection was the fact that I had to roleplay him as reverent of Tempus, who according to D&D lore pretty much compels his servants to dash headlong into battle, while FInbar himself was a backstabbing trickster. There were a few smaller things as well, such as the unfittingly low CHA that bothered me. I do enjoy making minor adjustments to make a character 'unique', but Finbar was a bit too fanciful to my taste.

    I rolled a Half-Orc Cleric/Thief yesterday, kitted as a Priest of Talos. (I have no qualms about kitting multiclasses per se, as long as the character makes sense to me. Half-Orcs commonly venerate Talos, so I'm cool with that.) I also rolled a new Bounty Hunter and a Fighter/Thief.
    I'm very eager to play all three of them because I like all three classes, especially the BH, as well as their portraits and soundsets (PS:T's Vhailor for the half-Orc, The Nameless One for the Bounty Hunter, and Annah for the Fighter/Thief).

    The BH and the F/T are still in Candlekeep, ready to depart, the Half-Orc is currently traveling the Sword Coast. If he fares well, I'll start posting on his progress. :)

    @bengoshi or maybe @Metalloman, could you remove this thread and paste its contents to my We're All Doomed thread? I think I can't. It's not a huge deal, but I feel it fits better there.

    Bjorn will be heartbroken! Unless he placed a Cease and Desist order on the thread... ;)

    "To hell with ascension, I'm becoming a pop star" decided Finbar. Björn approved.

    Well, you COULD try making a troupe... make the other three a blade, skald and maybe a Berserker? ;)

    Who would you choose to be the Bhaalspawn though? you don't really want to offend anyone, but then, we know The Winner Takes It All...

    Updated your journal i.e. merged the discussions.

    @Blackraven , you're free to do as you wish, of course. We, as readers, can be only happy when you, as a DM:) , is pleased in the first place.

    Also, PS:T's inspired playthrough would be excellent. I'll definitely follow how you RP the Nameless One in Athkatla.

    Well shoot. I am unable to see your pictures when I try and open them today. I can’t think what the problem might be. I can still open them on your older posts.

    I'm experiencing the same problem... :(
    Maybe the forums no longer support jpg? Png isn't working either...

    Edit:
    bmp

    I do remember @bengoshi saying he was having problems too. He started using bmp. I think.
    I can't see your new png either.

    @Ravenslight, that would be very unfortunate for me, bmp takes much longer in uploading and besides isn't supported on the bioware forums where I tend to post about my no-reload runs as well.

    I forget who actually handles the technical parts of the forum. I wonder how to find out if this is a permanent change.

    Very interesting new CHARNAME @Blackraven , I really like it.

    I'm a bit surprised (and sad) that the Stormlord of Talos doesn't get access to Lightning Bolt as a 3rd level spell, but thankfully he gets Call Lightning, which is even better IMO.

    I wish you luck with Streg, and be careful with your saving throws :smile:

    Another epic attempt! Thank you for continuing to entertain us @Blackraven I remember you saying something about needing a break from such things for a while. Your tales will be missed if this is so.

    Ah thank you dear @Ravenslight. Guess what, I wasn't ready for a break just yet... Here you can read about another attempt I'm going to make :)

    *casts his high level Necromancy spell "Raise Thread"*

    More @Blackraven ! Also, I have come up with an idea for a new character that I wanted to run by you. I think I might make a thread about it later.

    Hey @Meanbunny, a couple of months ago I started posting in this this thread.

    My current character is a female Dwarven Wizard Slayer. I look forward very much to reading about your new character concept.
