ok this is too funny....well at least to me at 4:51am.

I just made up a 4th level character....right now I am dm'ing, but when a friend gets back to town he's taking over.

The character is a Brb1/Ftr2/Forsaker 1

....with 5 intelligence. nice rollls (4d6 drop the lowest roll) except that 5.

And it just dawned on me that I will have a -3 on search rolls. I think thats a first for our gaming group. Taking a 20 will give me a 17 so I think thats what i'll say: "i'm going to take a 17" and see how long before they realize what I mean.

Also....what do you think about people who make the same character once their current character dies? IE: Jim the ranger dies. The party has no means to bring him back, so the player decides to make exactly the same character (except the scores which he rerolls) Same gear (he's level 1) same race, same skills, feats, etc. We can only assume he will have a different name. I personally find it fairly sad because I will be experiencing this thursday. And I could almost wager money that if he dies again he would clone the character again.

I'm sure that we've all seen it. Well, all of us who have been playing since we were in 6th grade. It's one of the childish cliches of the hobby. Hence the card game Munchkin, in which you come back as a clone, sans magic stuff when you die. Hence the game Paranoia, in which you literally play a clone, and the computer just ships in a new copy when the original is too damaged to be useful. Tell him to grow up.

It's Lefty 2(from the Hackmaster comic) all over again. I dunno, assuming there's any roleplaying going on at all, there'll be differences, or else he'll seem a bit off. You can work a completely different concept with the same character statwise. Also my DM always makes characters come back at one level lower than the lowest level character in the party.

well, they are just breaking 2nd level....well the one guy who survived "The Burning Plague" (I think it was from the WotC site) either way I made him 1st level.

As for role playing...hahahahah....we realized when we looked at his character sheet that his character is...HIM...roughly same height, weight, etc....the character is even left-handed, as he is. He doesn't roleplay, just what he thinks of shit.

When I first wrote this post I realized that some people would like to continue a character idea that they really dug, but i'm thinking this guy could die 17 times and remake the same character.

Which could be his ultimate form of escapism, who's to say?

maybe he dreams he's a ranger when he dozes off in the chair. He's done it before.

That player needs some imagination, seriously. If one of my toons dies and the party can't bring her back, I look on it as an opportunity to try out a new character concept or even a new class that I've never played before.

Tell him to live a little and try something different. :)

I agree but I think he might have some common sense/imagination deflector ....all his characters are pretty much him wearing some armor and so on.
