Of course, I’m going to follow Morde with my character design. I think it needs some tweeking to fit with the story a little better. But it’s pretty close!
This was fun. I got to set up my character as I was at the beginning of the story, and be all self deprecating about it. Like, we each get to grow as the novel proceeds, so it’s important to include the bits about ourselves that have room to grow. Also, it was fun setting up my stats and talents to play off of Morde. We make a rather dynamic duo in the story, after all.
