I Am A: Neutral Good Elf Ranger Bard

Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered 'normal'.

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.

Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Secondary Class:
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.

Mielikki is the Neutral Good goddess of the forest and autumn. She is also known as the Lady of the Forest, and is the Patron of Rangers. Her followers are devoted to nature, and believe in the positive and outreaching elements of it. They use light armor, and a variety of weapons suitable for hunting, which they are quite skilled at. Mielikki's symbol is a unicorn head.

Listening to Morning Edition, on NPR, yesterday, they were interviewing George Lucas. It was interesting what George's view on education was. That our education is mostly lacking in emotional education. This means teaching people to work in teams, social problem avoidence and resolution.

I fully agree with George on his emotional education views. I see many very inteligent engineers who continually fuck themselves over by assuming their ideas are best and trying to force their views through by force of will. This alienates them and turns people off to their ideas.

These people are are technically inteligent, they are social morons. Perhaps they fear that if they work with others they won't be viewed as a "wonder child", as they are used to, in their very spoiled way. In this day and age of diminishing budgets, businesses do not want to coddle spoilled self important "brainiacs", they get faster and better results with less inteligent people who can work with others.

The day of the single mircle child has passed. We are in an age of the wonder team, and there is no "I" in "TEAM".

Here is the show.
