Thread: Dwarven Fighter

  1. #1

    Dwarven Fighter

    We don't have a dwarven hero yet. What jamo proposed was:

    dwarven fighter - dwarven defender (more utility than brute force)

    high con
    high strength
    low charisma
    charm immunity
    blind fighting
    spell resistance (weak)
    wall crushing

    Can you get some +/-1s for the general concept?

    You can never have enough beards, and dwarfs imho
    Elder Dragon, Grand Chancellor x 2, Conjurer x 2, and some other type of Backer

    +1 to a dwarven fighter. He could be an inverted Brax and actually be useful! My only query would be where Wall Crushing came from.

    knowing the weak points on walls to allow him to demolish the wall, maybe he carries a hand sledge or something. the idea is to have a utility fighter, like a brax with some usefulness. i imagine that most fighter types will have abilities that help them in combat, so he most likely will one of the weaker fighter types in combat.

    I like the knowledge of siege craft idea. Rather Dwarvey.

    Why not have him be a Tunnel Fighter? That would explain the blind fighting, no light down there, and the Wall Crushing would be a representation of his skills as a Sapper.

    i like that. not the greatest fighter, but his experience as a tunnel fighter allows for him to handle invisible foes and walls with relative ease.

    perhaps an exiled subterranean dwarf that managed to adapt to surface life. mainly held as retainer as an oddity by some petty lord that loved the exotic. during a siege a druid called on a fog to obscure the battlefield in order to let a small group of spellswords assassinate the lord, but the dwarf slew the assailants who thought him helpless. when the fog cleared all could see his usefulness was more than just an exotic showpiece. he later brought down a section of wall and brought the siege to a swift end. afterwards he was in demand and was able to ask a fair price for his unconventional skills.

    or something else for lore possibly.

    He's got solid support.
