One of the longest campaigns I played in was a 2e D&D game called Lords of the Land, we were the movers and the shakers. That campaign, and thus likely, that character has ended (click the link!). But, that shant stop me from statting up one of my two favorite characters (note, I did not necessaril say these were my characters, though this one is), and here goes with a starting level (for LotL) character.
Some notes: I have not decided on a unique thing, as I know what it ended up as: The One Who Would Wield the Sword of Kas! Additionally, I will use the following my Icons.
Damien, as originally created, was a Blade Bard from the Complete Book of Bards kit-book. He was never into the singing of songs, but I saw him as a trash-talker, punmp up the teammates jack-of-all-trades sorta fellow. Would 13th Age be able to do that?
Damien Abission, 5th level Tiefling Bard
Talents: Jack of Spells (Magic Missile; cantrips: prestidigitation, light, knock); Storyteller; Battle Skald.
Battle Cries: Victory is Ours, Move It, Take Heart.
Spells: Song of Aid, Song of Thunder, Vicious Mockery, Discombobulate, Song of Magic.
Feats of Note: Ritual Casting (this could make for some fun pre-battle buffs?)
Backgrounds: Carnie Grifter, Cultural Lores, Arcane Secrets
Icons: Mordy (Positive, though he would say conflicted), Kas (Conflicted), Vecna (Negative, TBF we all had this one).
I think this character would be tons of fun to play, and would do what he should, provide aid to his allies even if they didn’t want it.
