He wasn't a Blackguard yet- But clearly an evil (More like snarky asshole) Fighter, who was taking the same classes as the Paladin. He'd only get the prestige class in the second year. Also, I have to admit- Babby's first DM.
I'll admit that the concept of the setting might feel very weeaboo. Japan likes to fetishize the concept of High School, and I'm fairly certain the pictures I'm posting are *not* helping. But I'll admit, you know, DM and player appeal. (Lonely neckbeard here, and I'm fairly certain- Not judging- the players were the same. Also, as I stated, IRC cuts down on the awkwardness a *lot*.)
So, our players: The Paladin was the LG guy- He played a gentlemanly dude, nice to everyone, and so on, but gods helped you if you pissed him off. He was actually a scholarship boy (Religious Studies scholarship)- But he hadn't actually chosen a god yet. He'd picked up the calling, but not the path; Humorously, I was going with the 'what future career do you want?' take on religion. A Paladin is a prime candidate- Everyone wants him.
Then we have the Bard. The guy who picked him wanted a shitload of skill points, so he could do a little bit of everything- He also dropped two levels of Fighter, to make himself less useless. Generally, he picked +2 Strength each week, to hit the enemy harder.
Last of all, the sorcerer. Laid-back dude, rather lazy- Because, you know, he didn't actually *need* to study to get spells- who couldn't care less about classes, and attended 'when he felt like it'.
