Aslaug by TazioBettin Aslaug by TazioBettin
New Burning Wheel campaign coming up means new character. And finally yesterday we started playing!
Last time we took inspiration from Steve Jackson's "Sorcery!" gamebook adventures' setting, this time it's going to be Warhammer Fantasy.
And here's an updated character sheet (because I lost the old one that I did before starting play, damn me).

(yes of course, I changed her name and named her after Vikings' Aslaug... because the name rocks, but Vikings' Aslaug is still one helluva annoying character that only keeps whining and shitting children).

In case you're a Burning Wheel player, her paths are:
Village Born, Village Peddler, Criminal, Gravedigger

And most important, her Beliefs:
People should be manipulated for one's profit.
I won't leave empty-handed.
I'll take care of Bertolt.

and Instincts:
Always assume logical explanations for strange occurrences while in graveyards or catacombs.
Whenever someone asks me about my past, use Falsehoods.
When I'm working, I'm always hooded.

I like the character concept. She seems like very bit the tomb raider you have described. Her appearance and outfit are also very practical. Something a late night tomb explorer might wear. Hehe.
Also, her special ability is quite interesting although I would love an explanation as to how she acquired it.
But, I have a question... Why no shoes? :p

Cool design. That double-pupil eye is an impressively freaky idea!

I tried to read burning wheel once. It looks really hard to run but if you can I bet it's super fun to play.

It's actually much easier than any other game I've ever played. As a GM, you don't have to keep track of any experience points for the PCs because the system takes care of character advancement automatically. NPCs are also much easier to burn and move than PCs. It is true that in the previous edition looked kinda daunting, also because it was separated in so many manuals, but the Gold Edition reorganizes things quite well and is easier to read. The Adventure Burner is still a very valuable sourcebook, I think.
My only qualm with the whole system is the intrinsic racism, typically tolkienian. Having all dwarves greedy and all orcs hateful is something I strongly object to. But if one tweaks that bit, it plays gorgeously.

I really like the detail work on her belts and feet (the way they effect her pose) are really clever. 
but I didn't think nail polish or hot pants were common renaissance attire!

I'm just gonna say it. You come up with the most bad-ass characters and ideas behind them. And the fact she's in a Warhammer Fantasy setting is just icing on the cake.

Thanks man. But really, it's all thanks to the game. I only put together some pieces that were already present in the manual.
Good characters come from good games when you roleplay :)
(I'm talking about the Burning Wheel, of course... only the color of Warhammer was used)

really like the chest piece for some reason :D
The X-top and the armored-yet-maybe-not stomach (reminds me of Greek armor) are a really nice touch i think.
