Everyone has a favorite character they like to play. Mine is an Elf Ranger/Bard. I like the combination of the long-distance fighter coupled with the ability to woo the enemy and the occasional damsel. For me, the elf is an extension of my love of the natural world and spiritual connectedness. Then there's the ability to show off as an archer. Let's face it - Elves look cool firing bows. Remember Orlando Bloom as Legolas and the Oliphant? The militant side of the elf appeals to me - it just does. On the other hand, the bardic side allows me to play to the diplomatic side of my personality and there I get to use my leadership skills for the benefit of the group. I get to ham it up but still be in character. For me there's no better combination than an Elf Ranger/Bard though if I had to ask for it all I'd throw in telepath as well.
What's your favorite race/class combo? What is it about it that appeals to you?
