Now that our massive FR game is done and my playtesting is over (thanks again to all my playtesters, the publisher is very happy with the manuscript), the Tuesday Night Crew needs a new game.  For the moment, it looks like it's going to be a Pathfinder game set in Greyhawk, called Dawn of the Temple of Elemental Evil.  A, the GM, has quite a history with the ToEE, having run it in college for some of the folks in the current group, then running "Return to," when it came out for 3.5.  "Dawn of" is his own creation.  As an old-school Greyhawk nerd, I nearly whooped for joy when he pitched it.

Of course, a new game requires new characters and Pathfinder does enough cool/interesting stuff with the core classes that picking one out is a bit of an exercise in and of itself.  My first inclination was a dour and militant paladin of Saint Cuthbert, kind of a Solomon Kane with a cudgel sort.  But then I realized I've spent the past three years playing a paladin, so maybe I should do something different.  Spellcaster?  I'm not that good with the logistics.  Rogue?  I've played one recently.

Barbarian?  Hmmm...that's definitely off my beaten path.  I'm not too fond of muscle-bound illiterates, but playing up the Rage as berzerkergang certainly had potential.  I mulled it over a few minutes more and came up with Einar.  Einar is a dwarf, possibly from the Kron Hills, but his memory is rather murky on this point.  He's a filthy little ball of anger in chainmail, toting a greataxe and wearing a small sign on his chest that reads "Sobre __ Days," which he adjusts as needed.  His personality can be summed up with the phrase, "Violence is the first recourse of the violent." I'm far more comfortable developing personality nuance and history on the fly during play, so that's enough to get me started.  

I just hope he lives long enough for me to get to know him better.
