Syrio Forel doesn't look like much, at a glance. A short, slender Braavosi with a beak of a nose and a very high opinion of himself, he is actually one of the most dangerous men in King's Landing, if not in the whole of George Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. Formerly the First Sword of Braavos, his swagger is well earned, though we only see it once when he is buying Arya time to escape from Lannister guardsmen. For those who'd like to bring the skill and philosophy of Syrio Forel to your Pathfinder table, this guide should help you get started.
Jon Snow, the bastard of Winterfell, was one of the foremost members of the Night's Watch, eventually rising to become the Lord Commander for a time. A good man among thieves, killers, rapists, and worse, Jon went north as soon as he was old enough for his oath to be accepted. With his dire wolf Ghost, Jon has braved the perils of the untrodden forests, fought both with and against Wildlings, and seen things that would turn an ordinary man's blood to ice. The following guide is for players who want to recreate Jon in the Pathfinder roleplaying game as accurately as possible.
Melisandre of Asshai, more commonly referred to as the Red Woman, is one of the most enigmatic characters in Game of Thrones. A devotee of the strange god R'hllor, she is a priestess who seems greatly concerned with the forces of darkness marshaling against the world. Despite her concern, though, she is willing to take ruthless, even brutal, action to make sure those forces don't succeed, making us wonder whether she's simply a different shade of dark than what she claims to fight. For players who want to bring someone like this enigmatic follower of the Lord of Light, here's a guide to help you get started.
Loras Tyrell, the Knight of the Flowers, is one of the most well-known tourney knights in Westeros. Though he fought in the battle for King's Landing, he is best known for his upsets in the joust (well, that, and for being Lord Renly's lover behind closed doors). For players who want to see how well Tyrell's sharpest thorn plays in the field, this character build for the Pathfinder RPG will provide the basic framework to help you recreate Loras in Golarion.
Hi, and welcome to the first chapter of Tales from the Table, my little neck of the RPG woods. In these blog type thingies, I will have stories of past games, tips and tricks for both players and GMs alike, as well as little bits of humor and ra
nts...mostly rants. I'm going to try to do this weekly, but I'm a lazy sod so I wouldn't count on it. Mostly, this is going to deal with 1st to 3rd edition D&D, because I hate 4th and haven't played 5th, and with a few other games thrown in for color

Depending on play style, home rules, or if you’re playing in an official league like Adventurer’s League, alignment can be a very important part of character creation in Dungeons and Dragons. Race, class, and alignment need to fit together sensibly and can all influence how you play your character. The way these factors work together varies across the game’s very long history and numerous editions, but my experience is with fifth edition (AKA 5e), so we’ll focus on that for now.
Of course, it is a must if you want to become a real expert; experience comes with practice. However, to improve your skills and get the most out of gaming, you should enjoy the process in the first place.
