So here's my 4E character. Thinking about a simple description and background for him has really made him "come alive" in my mind. The character should be fun to play. As lots of people mentioned in my last post, I need to go into the game with the mindset that it's a table top tactical minis game with RP elements. Sorta like what I suggested could be done with HeroClix a while back. Do that, and I hope I'll have fun with it.
