Welcome to Round 4 of the Character Codex! If you're new here, the idea is simple: I'm going to illustrate all 77 race/class combinations from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook. These are also the "traditional" races and classes you'll find in Dungeons & Dragons. You can see everything so far in the Character Codex Gallery.
Before we get to the characters this week, I want to mention a couple of things we have going on here at Chronicle. First, in conjunction with the Character Codex, there are now Virtual Tabletop Tokens of each of the Character Codex characters available for free download and use on Roll20 or any other virtual tabletop program.
Second, if you like the artwork you see here each week, you should enter the Name That Rogue contest! It's a chance to have a FREE full-color character drawing done by your request. So far, no one has named all 25 characters, so the chances are still good!
Lastly, don't forget to come back tomorrow for the latest Chronicle strip. We introduce a new character in this week's strip! Now on to the characters!
The first character this week is the female Dwarf Ranger. She's an all-around explorer. Many of the rangers in Chronicle tend to wander the mountain valleys around Jaxstein, the great dwarven vale. This is reflected in her climbing gear, but she's got a wanderer's spirit and is willing to go wherever she needs to go.
The second character this week is the male Dwarf Rogue. I wanted the dwarf rogue to show off his trapfinding and device disabling skills. In the process of drawing a locksmith, this guy changed his mind and said, "Nope. I want to blow stuff up." So, yeah, he looks like a certain buster of myths! I had a BLAST drawing him! (sorry, no more puns.)
Note the wrench built into the pommel of his shortsword. I imagine that as a shortsword that gives +2 to Disable Device or Profession (Engineering) checks. Oh and, yeah, the scabbard and strap are made of duct tape.
So, that's it for this week. Next week, we have a MAGICAL week with the final two dwarves, the sorcerer and the wizard. (Okay, so I lied.)
