I made a hobbit character again, because while elves have stature, beauty and grace - or perhaps because - I feel a greater kingship with small people whose biggest problems are usually along the lines of pests in their vegetable garden. I don't remember what class I chose last time, but this time I think I have found the class of my heart. I'm playing a bard and while you start out with a basic lute, I have since equipped myself with a cowbell as my instrument of battle. What could be more joyful than running around The Shire, yelling at enemies (bards have shout attacks) and tink, tink, tinking furiously on a cowbell?
And that is why I didn't get enough sleep last night.
