    Name: Tonk Race: Elf
    Total Cost: 175 pts (50 pts of complications)

  2. D&D in HERO: the mauling rager

    So now we have this nifty toolkit, I thought I piecemeal some interesting characters together. With a SLIGHT emphasis on what could NEVER happen in 3.x due to level restrictions or even alignment restrictions.

  4. Convert D&D 3.x to HERO: psionic and incarnum races

  5. AYMS - Angry Young Man Syndrome

    To preface this, I am someone who’s successfully been in sales, customer service, maintained vendor relations and had negotiation training. It might be safe to say I know something about convincing folks to do things.
