So, I am fairly sure that all of you have tried, at least once, whip up a character quicklike in a matter of minutes. Twice i've done it in under thirty minutes, one of those times it was under fifteen.|
What can I say... Such high-speed creation leads to mistakes, sometimes very horrible ones. One of them had a so incredibly confusing and surreal background, coupled with such a horrible build... Oh my god.
Now the second? It was such a hilarious mistake. I had this character in mind for a while now, so I was like "WHAT? 15 minutes WHAT?" when the GM said it, so I used that idea. At it's very base, it's a goofy Dragoon whose lack of attention hides an unusual insight and awareness. So there I went choosing ads/disads. I went by and when I saw Combat Reflexes I thought 'Hey, nice, shows that he's very aware despite the looks' and then I skimmed over Flat-Footed 'Oh, nice, shows how he's kinda goofy and unattentive'. There I did, finished, submitted, got to playing. Amusingly the GM absolutely forgets Flat-Footed at the start of the combat, so did I.
It was only over twenty-four hours later that I went to update his sheet and was "What the HELL is CR and Flat-Footed doing in the same sheet?"
So, have any of you ever done any crazy mistakes like that?
