No rpg players in here yet? sadface.

It depends on my mood really, (since i've been playing lots of skyrim lately) i tend to go for a mix stealth/melee. i'll start off sneaking and picking off the first couple enemies, and once i'm sighted go full on attack. though i also like playing around with magery and full stealth.


I'm an RPG player. I've recently finished a game of Skyrim (well, the main storyline at least), but the character I had for that I wanted to try something different, so I went with heavy armour, and two handed weapons. For usually playing a sneaky backstabby type, there was something rather satisfying in smashing skulls in with a giant mallet.

I usually like to put my spawning pool down as soon as possible and then make zerglings. That generally does it for me!

I think it's worth mentioning that, in games almost as much as real life, the only advantage of any kind of gun/projectile/missile is that you can kill someone from far away. in FPS games, if you're in small rooms, you're better off with a knife or a crowbar than any gun, at least until you get to a hallway and can see them coming.

Ray Of Enfeeblement? I knew him - he was one of the SCA crowd who used to come to the Irish bars in Portland. Nice guy. Inoffensive.

A sword on fire. A weapon on fire is better than a weapon that is not.

If you believe the lore in Game of Thrones, fire is not good for swords. I don't really know anything about swords.

I prefer to seduce my opponent with skimpy outfits and suggestive comments, and then roofie them and have my way with them.

I was referring to the beasts - things like dragons and threshers.

I remember in Fallout: New Vegas there's a moment you can seduce the dude which shot you, have your way with him, then kill him after he falls asleep. :3 High charisma for the win!

I like charismatic sneaky characters. Either sneaking up for the kill or flirting their way out of danger.

Just downloaded the sneaky magic mod for Skyrim, testing it out is fun. >)
