Once upon a time many moons ago, in a D&D session far, far away I generated an Elf. This being Classic D&D, that’s all she was, class’n’all. But I said – and I regret it now – that’s she’s a Ranger, in the best Aragorn tradition. Only she’s an elf. And female.
I called her Lorna, and I thought she stood a chance of surviving beyond 1st level. How wrong I was. The jibes started almost immediately.
“Lorna…… Ranger. Lorna Ranger! Does she, y’know, arrange lawns? What is she, some kind of landscape gardener?”
“Hey, after we clear this dungeon, I’ve got some ornamental shrubs that need……….”
“How about a nice pond?”
“Hey, has she got a brother called Homer?”
Sorry Lorna, but I’m kinda pleased that the Manscorpion ate you.
That’s my embarassing name character. What’s yours?
