More Shocking Than The Fact That Cameraman Darren Convinced Me To Play Type 4 With Him Is...

...I managed to fit my whole guy on one piece of paper..
.

So I admit I may be missing something, but... Where are the race/class/name? Lots of cool numbers, but what is he, Zak?

I think, if I were to write an RPG, I would want to hire you to lay out character sheets. And probably other parts of the book as well.

Loki said...

Looks like a Warlord.

Gratuitous Saxon Violence said...

Whew! I thought you were going to say you enjoyed 4e.

Barking Alien said...

Wait, so that's not normal for 4E? I figured 4E to be capable of that since it's somewhat less involved than earlier editions.

I'm impressed but more disappointed in 4E.

I clearly spent way more time cramming equations on study cards for science courses than you did... all that wasted space :P

Anathematician said...

I am looking forward to this becoming a 4e Blog with Zak breathing life into 4e play, finally and singlehandedly crushing Paizo. In the aftermath of Paizo's destruction, our deluded Ubermensch claims it publishing empire as his own. Zak, still bathed in the blood and fecal material of the fallen, is able to take on Hasbro/WotC, heralding a Renaissance of roleplaying across the world.

Or something like that. Or maybe not.

You are either lying -- oh Zak, how could you? -- or that sheet of paper is the size of a football pitch.

I was told this is one of the seven omens that of the end of the world. By the voices in my head.

@forrest

i don't need to write down my character's race and class to remember it, but he's a human warlord.

point is, there's room to write that in.

Gregor said...

Great stuff. Terrible character sheets are a huge weakness of post 3.x D&D.

The only thing I'm missing is it says you have Inspiring Word but it doesn't say what Inspiring Word does.

Aren't you missing your 1st level daily power?

Leaf on the Wind is my fvourite Warlord power, by the way. I love to change places with enemies, specially with a long polearm. It's very funny to imagine that situation.

@gregor
@wachinayn

holy fuck, you guys are right. I didn't realize the original was 5 pages long. Fixed it--thanks!

Tequila Sunrise said...

Pfft, rooky! Real gamers can do better with pencil and paper.

Okay, for real, you are a god among insects.

Zak S said...

@tequila

If my DM sends me 5 files i'm not gonna go and re-write them down. Time efficiency is as important as space efficiency. this took 3 minutes.

And. p.s. it's spelled "rookie", big boy.

4e is far from perfect, but it can be fun. At least its easy to play, I'm currently running a shadowrun game, and the rules are crippling!
