My New Character ...

Found at Kitschy Kitschy Coo


... is definitely going to be a gnome barbarian!

Hmmm - why not roll up a quick gnome barbarian for Blood & Treasure?

And just for fun, I'll time how long it takes.

I'm starting at 12:29 PM (yeah, I'm on my lunch break)

First - roll my ability scores. Since I definitely want a gnome barbarian, I'm going to roll 3d6 and arrange as I like. I get 8, 5, 13, 14, 10, 9. Wow - great scores. Okay - he'll be uncharismatic (I think the photo is proof of that), the good stuff goes into strength and constitution to meet the class requirements, everything else is mediocre.

I make a note of the special abilities from being a gnome, adjust ability scores. Pick a couple languages. Roll 1d10 for barbarian hit points - got a 10. Hot damn.

Now I note the skills and special abilities of a barbarian. Increase land speed, rage, etc.

Final step - buy gear. I have 50 gp to spend (Cha 5 x 10 gp), and if I'm using the photo above for my model, not much gear to buy.

Done at 12:42 PM - took 13 minutes, most of that looking at equipment.
