I was holding out for a Kender Wild Mage, but the GM said no  ;D

Now that would have been Dangerous

A kender with a hampsterhead helm?

Nope a Anthropomorphic Barbarian Hamster with Kender tendencies.

(note: that will not be my serious character - possibly contemplating two serious characters, but at least one swashbuckling piratey fellow)

*grin* Josi, this is one of the fun things about this game... you don't have to start right when it starts. Your character could come in two weeks or even two months down the line, if you like!

Yep.

But fun. So much fun.

I got to admit, the Kender idea is rather appealing right now.

Doesn't the Kender idea only work if the other players know what a Kender is?

You have the whole internet at your fingertips... I'm pretty sure if anybody here doesn't know what a Kender is, they can look it up, or else count on the player to have a good explaining description of said character.

Isn't a Kender a chocolate egg from Germany with a little toy inside?

No, I meant, as a character. Not as an E member. I wasn't clear there.

A Kender is a type specific to one game system, so it wouldn't really have the same impact outside of D&D would it? Because its abilities are rule-based.

If I played your average barmaid/wench from a generic fantasy medieval setting the Kender's skills would be irrelevant and unknown to her and thus its whole effect is lost.

What I guess I'm saying is, game-specific creatures don't usually work outside their designed game, particularly non-system games.

See above, regarding: GENERIC FANTASY.

To clarify, as apparently I didn't, the setting is a generic, unspecified fantasy world of my description. As far as specific character types, so long as people can clear it with me that it's workable in a generic fantasy setting, then it's workable in this world. It's a deliberately non-specific world, which means realistically we could have kender AND hobbits AND halfling all running around, all differentiatable (is that even a word? I declare it a word now.) from one another by their quirky racial characteristics, beyond the fact of being humanoid short people.

Besides which, Kender are specific to a fiction series, and weren't D&D creatures anyway. Maybe you were thinking Kobold?

Oh, wrong sort of Kender. *Puts on COP uniform for protection from Bliss*

And its a Freeform Fantasy. No dice. Anything goes. Just no God-Moding type thing (generic rules).

The Kender were in Dragonlance, which was both fiction and 2nd ed D&D game world. The game where I used my Kender wasn't Dragonlance, but it was easy enough to see a Kender going through a dimensional portal just to see what was on the other side, so having him there wasn't a big deal.

This is a deliberately systemless/freeform game, but choice/creation of charactertype is going pretty much by the same rules as weaponry. If you can justify it to me, like Inkidu did what that gun a couple pages back, then I'll probably let it in. Though it'll be a lot harder to justify, say, mechawarrior than a ranger with a flintlock. XD

Rule based, but not hard to replicate.

Extremely curious, total lack of fear, a tendancy to find things and hold onto them for safekeeping so .. what, yours?  Well, yes, but you set it down there and I was afraid you'd forget it. I mean, its a good job I found it, or some unsavoury type might have walked off with it. Them. And those. That too. See, you're really careless about leaving stuff down, I mean, its a good job I'm around or you'd lose half your things in five minutes.

So, wait... a kender would lose the effect.  And yet, the inn is allowed to have mecha, guns, and anything else under the sun or moon?

I think you're missing the point.  To be able to get those  game specific creatures, to interact.  How would a kender deal with the Xenomorphs from Alien, for example?

Here's a silly question..

Will there be a list of races or what have you that we may pick from...?

Try talking to it initially. If/when it turned nasty, outrun it, then hurl a variety of insults (and the contents of various pouches) from somewhere safe.

Nope. Not as such; is there a race in particular you'd like to play?

And that extreme (and highly accurate) example is exactly why this world can be so fun!

My Kender killed a goblin with his humourously shaped turnip. An armour plated, acid blooded killing machine can't be any harder  ;D

So maybe this might be frowned upon I am not sure.
