The Chronology of 4th details characters that I have made in 4th edition D&D. As I have been playing D&D for nearly 20 years now, I wanted to begin documenting as many characters as possible so that you and I may enjoy their exploits, mannerisms, and builds. Enjoy!
Beth Poe, 14th level female human dhampyr rogue (brutal scoundrel) [ACTIVE]
The why: after the untimely death of Tuloom Shi'Li, the rest of the adventuring party was in need of a replacement. Since a leader was already present and our battles seemed to be marathons, I upped the ante by introducing Beth, the super striker. I also loved the dhampyr entry and thought it would be combined very well with the garrotte multi-class feats as well. Grab-ass tactics all the way.
The concept: Beth is heavily based off of Ravina, a vampire I created about 15 years ago for the White Wolf system. To spare all the details of years worth of storybuilding it basically came down to this: in the distant past she was a human that lived on the streets with a bunch of other children (Beth had lived on the streets for as long as she can remember) that worked as thieves. Before she became a vampire, she went through a series of adventures that were lost to history. Most of her history is made up of the 600+ years she lived as a vampire, the 4th edition character is an attempt to fill in the gaps.
The build: Brutal Scoundrel/Death Dealer dhampyr that uses a garrotte. Basically, grab a target and choke the life out of it until one of us is dead. Feat structure is basically all of the garrotte feats, toughness, backstabber, and vampire feats. Paragon feats to help increase Fortitude to make grabs more difficult to break.
Claims to fame: saved the life of the leader in our party on the last encounter and then fed from him.
tossed a grabbed enemy and threw it into another killing both of them.
took merciless beating after merciless beating and kept on ticking
Quotes: "Is Beth Poe gonna have to choke a bitch?" "I'm gonna wrap 'em up."
