My friend Adam is working on developing a basic RP game for use by his home group. It is his first foray into design, which is always pretty awesome in my book. One thing the RP community on Twitter has really done for me is gotten me thinking about designing something of my own. I’m still not there yet, but people like Adam are definitely inspiring me to jump in!
Anyway, his system is still in the works, but I have already created my first character: Darius Rosthorn. He is an old, memorable D&D character of mine, and one of the test characters I always use when sussing out a fantasy RPG.

Darius was originally envisioned as a male Lina Inverse, if you are familiar with the Slayers anime. Swift, tumbly, knowledgable about the arcane, and incredibly self-centered. He evolved quite a bit from those origins as play went on, but I always stat my test characters up with him in mind.
