My Character Xed died in D&D last night, the victim of a friendly-fireball. He was a really fun character to role-play and I really liked the concept, but he was never able to keep up with the rest of the party combat effectiveness-wise, so I doubt he will return.
At a party Menahir threw to raise the spirits of the people of Brindol before the impending invasion Xed gave a brief speech:
"Good people of Brindol and the environs of the Dawn Way, if the Red Hand Horde is a sea, then you are the rock on which they shall break. Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain."
