Bob Ross, Berserker

Post by jstomel »

Just posting this for S&G.

One of my players needed to make a new character last night. She decided on a berserker and when I asked if she had any backstory and she said "Nope, I'm going to let the runes decide". So she draws six runes for her six essence and all six of them are mental. I ask if she wants another go at it and she says she'll just lean into it. On to the life path tables. For social standing she draws hunter/trapper, no problem there. Next is personality and she draws Dreamer, highly creative and disconnected from reality. So she's highly intellectual, spends a lot of time in nature, creative, and artistic...berserker. Next is motivation and she draws addiction. I say "This is going to be the weirdest damn berserker ever". Together we come up with a character concept that is basically Bob Ross with PTSD and an adrenaline addiction. She really leans into it, skinny little guy with a 'fro and two axes. Runs into combat like "These look like happy trees! Let's paint some red on them!" and *whack* head goes flying "There are no mistakes! Only happy accidents!"

Best. Character. Ever.
