The 5e A-Team
Hannibal, aka Ark. He's the man with the plan, he's the Grognard of the group, he's guy WOTC would give it's proverbial left nut to get back in their camp. He'll be DMing. Specialty: Crunching DM-side rules.
B.A. "Bad Attitude" Baracus, aka Kaye. Our resident tank. Cut his teeth on the powergamer-friendly 3rd edition, and is trying to adjust to Labyrinth Lord and 2e restrictions. Specialty: Tweaking characters to the point where they exist solely for a specific purpose.
H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock, aka The Boy. Regards 4e as "real Dungeons and Dragons", he's WOTC's other target demographic. He's unpredictable at the game table - sometimes his characters fight, other times they go out of their way to avoid conflict, and contemplate settling down and roleplaying a quiet family life instead. Specialty: Can the rules keep up with his imagination?
Templeton "Faceman" Peck, aka Me. Yeah, that's right, I'm a ladies man. You didn't know that about me, because I keep it low key on here. But now you do. I was raised on 2e, and my characters tend to be smooth mother f***ers. Specialty: non-combat focused, charisma based character generation
The Rotating Girl Character, aka The Woman. My better half. Rounding out our group is my fiancee, who has never roleplayed before. Ever. She's not really sure if she even wants to, or will enjoy it, but is a good sport and is helping out for a session or two to test out the rules. Specialty: Doesn't really have one, that I know of. She's there to see how easy the rules are to pick up.
