Hah.. guess what?
Hah.. guess what? Being the fantasy freak I am, I took an improved test on Which D&D Character Are You?. They added Forgotten Realms deities to the results. Cool. :)
This time around, I am a Chaotic Good Elf Ranger Paladin (Follower Of Solonor Thelandria).
Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Paladins are the Holy Warriors. They have been chosen by a God/dess to be their representative on Earth, and must follow the code of that deity, or risk severe penalties. They tend towards being righteous, but not generally to excess.
Solonor Thelandria is the Chaotic Good elven god of archery and the hunt. He is also known as the Keen Eye, the Great Archer, and the Forest Hunter. His followers respect nature, and only hunt when needed, but are quick to defend the forest from intruders. Their favorite weapon is the bow, and they tend to be extremely talented with it. Solonor Thelandria’s symbol is an arrow with green fletchings.

You may think it’s ridiculous for me to do this test for the fifth time (at least), but hey, leave me be. Sometimes, it just feels good to dream, to fantasize, to imagine. By then, you’ll float in a vast space of a beautiful dream, where you can become whatever you want to be. And I had chose to be an elf ranger, ever since I have been reading R.A. Salvatore’s Icewind Dale trilogy books. I seem to feel particularly close to rangers – I like characters such as Strider or Aragorn (from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings), and Drizzt Do’Urden from Icewind Dale. When I was younger, I wanted to take up archery.. until today, I have not. :| There are a few “digital” archeries near my house: I never really find out how it is done. A television will be hanging a few feet in front of you, and I guess you’re supposed to aim for the bull’s eye in it. I guess all I need is ample time for me to imagine, to escape to a world, where everything magical comes to life – a world where I would love.
I believe that nothing is perfect in this world: heck, the world itself ain’t perfect. Sometimes I wish that I could be swished away into another world (think TV series Sliders) for the sake of adventure, and a valuable experience. Or that I could just be dragged into a dark, cold room a la The Matrix, and be rescued by a gang of rebels, and the only way to repay them is to work for them as a hired assassin. That makes you think of La Femme Nikita. And yet, at times I would love to be running lightly in the woods, pausing every now and then to observe some animals and God’s creations, drawing my bow cautiously whenever danger approaches, or taking my scimitars from its sheaths and making them dance dangerously on an enemy.
I know this is a long post. But I can’t help wondering. Do you think there is a life other than this, going on simultaneously? Do you believe in fantasy?
I know I do.
