When I created my very first Dungeons & Dragons character for a 3.5 edition campaign, I based her off of Pirogoeth from MegaTokyo. Very quickly she became her own character. She started out with a couple levels of Fighter before moving on to Wizard – she needed skills for fights that didn’t rely on magic.… Read More Pirogoeth (Wizard)
