Play by Post

6. Gabriella

I joined a play by email 4th edition game in 2010 and it's still going on. Since then it has converted to HM5 and moved to the Kenzer Forums. I converted a HM4 banished princess ranger to 5 with minimal drama. (As in it really isn't as hard as some people want to make it to convert a PC from one edition to another.) HM4 had social class tables including the result of royalty. She also has an identical twin sister. Noble PCs are allegedly problematic, but I don't know why. I always wanted to get the HM version of Princess Leia. Her background wrote itself from the old Fighters Guide when I got the quirk/flaw roll of banished. The easiest way to run a noble PC and explain it is for said PC to have lost her kingdom and now wanders the world looking for home and retribution.

1d6p things about Gabriella:
1. Her last name is Fairbourne. I got it from Flint's G.I. Joe bio card. So she's up for fighting Cobra.
2. She's my longest lived PC. Reality is that GMs don't play that much.
3. I've run versions of her through one off sessions at cons.
4. She starred in a serial story called "Gabriella versus The Monster."
5. Her twin sister is a Mage in training.
6. She's my third ranger. The others are Arianelle (4e HM) and Anorith (D&D 3.5)
p. Fellow Ranger Biscuit wants to date her, but I think she might be holding out for Aragorn. ;)
