As promised I have put together some introductory information for playing the 4E module Keep on the Shadowfell. Follow the link below to the introduction:
KotS: Module Introduction
DND 4E has shipped and we are finally making new characters and getting a little bit into it.
This post is related to my new character Solvarg, for Karl's campaign, Dark Nights.
There is no barbarian class for 4E yet so I had to build him as something else. Since my concept firmly fit the Striker role I created him as a Ranger. In my mind he had been a greatsword wielder, now he's a two-weapon fighter. Other than that cosmetic change though he came out pretty much exactly as I wanted. So far he has been fun to play. The Stiker role is a roller-coaster.
