We finally made it through the flashback! This seemed like a good time for us to try and get a little ahead of things, so the next two updates will be one-shots done by me, while XiaoKe is going to work on the upcoming strips.

Coming June 10th, "Hulk Sunder!"


Today's topic is what happens when a GM lets a player use a character that he probably shouldn't. My first GM wanted to make me happy, and what I eventually decided on playing was a Tiefling Werewolf. Not the simplest choice for someone who was just getting into RPGs in general. But man, having the ability to go into a wolf-hybrid with a STR boost, DR, and 50 foot move-speed was too much fun.

My current GM has let me play a character he probably should have. It is my first time playing 4e so I was kind of learning as I went. As such I decided to use one of my existing characters from 3.5 and try to transfer them. They were a psion who used almost exclusively mind affecting abilities.

Anyway, once she was in 4e due to the power system, suddenly she was the Thor of the party, only a diplomancer version. combining her tremendous bluff and telepathy ability she was able to implant suggestions into almost anyone using what I dubbed Telebluffy. It was the art of talking to people over a telepathic message and convincing them with a bluff that the thought came from their own mind and not my character. First session she made a mob boss give up on collecting a debt, stopped a street rat from joining the assassin's guild and then conned a racist merchant into giving her a staff for less than a third of its price. All of this was done with her only speaking once to the merchant.

My only hope is that I can repeat my favourite moment from the 3.5 iteration of the character. Which is when the party was in the tavern and Rias (the psion in question) got drunk. Amusingly, in her drunken state she began delving into the party members and parton's minds and blurting out all their secrets.

In a smug voice: "its called Inception".

So, Thor is a cleric, and I'm guessing Hulk is a barbarian, Widow is a thief, Hawkeye is a ranger and Cap is most likely a paladin. So, what about Iron Man, what class he is? If this was Shadowrun, I'd say he was probably a decker.

Iron man could be a psion. They are pretty good at firing out beams and flying around. Plus, he has the brains for it since intelligence is their main stat. And heavy armour doesn't affect their casting ability.

All will be revealed in due time. Some pretty good guesses though.

Psion makes sense, but he's pretty dependent on his armor, so I'd guess Artificer. I have no idea what artificers are like in 4e, but as I recall they're very flexible in 3.5, with no pigeonholed role aside from a penchant for buffing.
