If i ever get a chance to roll up a character and play, I plan to be a extremely dimwitted halfling thief, I mean, whatever is the lowest intelligence score I'll go with that! (class restrictions) that way I can do shit like "My PC runs blindly into a battle with ogres, COME ON GUYS WE CAN TAKE EM!"
The idea of actually role playing is what is sparking this (not roll), look at those attributes and figure it out. Did you roll a low strength? play is up, "I see there's some bars that need to be lifted, take it easy barbarian, i got this!". and then fail miserably.
Its so easy to try and figure out the best min/maxing type PC and go with that, but what fun is there in that? I got a STR of 18 and + 9 Battle Axe, send me a demon!
Just some thoughts this afternoon, sparked by a discussion with +Venger Satanis
