I am a Dwarf-o-Holic

Do you like rocks?
Do you have a candle on your hat?
Do you hide things in your beard?
Have you ever used a battleaxe to open a can of Ravioli?
If you answered yes to these questions you may have a problem.
No, not a real problem, but an imaginary problem.
I play only Dwarves and I don't know why. And, I don't really care.
But is that so bad?


  1. That's funny; I usually like to play a Thief. And it doesn't matter what kind: up from the streets; rough and tumble kid; bored house burglar; friendly loveable map maker and small business man on the outside and cold, deadly assassin who constantly bites off more than he can chew on the inside.

    I love the idea of the two faced character. ANd Wizards didn't help when they made it the character who has the best skill point alottment to play with. Want to be good at everything? You can be. Want to be really, scary good at one thing? You can be.

    I was getting ready to make a game for a Burning Wheel campaign (before I got sidetracked by a Dickens class) that was going to be all thieves. They were in a guild that controlled a small section of one neighborhood. And then their mob boss got killed and they had to align themselves with the neighboring guild, or convince the merchants that they were tough enough to take over the territory. At least that was my very rough sketch....

    I tend to be a very loose DM, keeping the narrative as open as possible. Too open, it seems...

  2. I usually end up playing whatever no one else does so we have the crucial person needed in the group.

    I think you make awesome dwarves and they have the coolest swear words... except for redcaps but different game =)
