    I had him pegged more Neutral Good.

  • Gadren

    I would have thought that since he’s trying to change the the status quo regarding religious laws and stuff, he’d be more Chaotic. Chaotic Good, maybe.

  • 22nd level, he’s an epic pc now! That puts at just the right level to start fighting avatars and low-level gods. Ha!

    Also, please be sure to morn the passing of Ernest Gary Gygax, one of the co-creators of Dungeons and Dragons, who past away March 4th. He will be critically missed.

    Gary Gygax

  • Dammed if I know what the numbers mean either. I mean, I can be a total geek, but I seemed to have missed the Dungeons & Dragons geek trend in my day.

    “Special Abilities: Spell Resistance Infinite (because magic is not real).” LOL, too funny!!! I love it.

  • Nah. He’s following the most legal, peaceful means to his end I could imagine, so he’s definitely lawful. And he’s neither good nor evil because such things don’t exist!

  • Viggo the Carpathian

    Christopher Hitchens

    19th-Level Curmudgeon Pundit
    Chaotic Grudgingly Neutral Human
    Strength: 10
    Dexterity: 13
    Constitution: 25
    Intelligence: 17
    Wisdom: 15
    Charisma: 25
    Special Abilities: Spell Resistance Infinite (because magic is not real).
    All Cleric-Priest within 90 feet gain 1 negate levels due to logical paradox and minus 5 on next five rolls due to back-sliding.
    Special Equipment: Scotchy breath of destruction. Rumpled suit of punditry.

  • cautious

    He’s lawful, definitely, and I’d say he’s neutral because his actions, overall, do not lead to either good or evil.

    I’d put his INT score slightly higher, I mean he’s wicked smart, he’s got a science degree.

  • FYI,
    “Epic” levels are levels 21 and above. The “average” human ability scores are 10 or 11, though adventurers tend to have higher scores. 18 is the highest possible for a level 1 human.

    I found another image here

    that was taken from a slightly different angle. It seems to capture his special aura…

    Some one do Sam Harris, and Hemant!

  • Damned if I know what any of the numbers mean.

    Hemant, you need to get out less.

  • Matt

    Hehe… too funny. I wonder what Dawkins would think if he saw that. Maybe he’s played Dungeons and Dragons before?
