Depends. If I play a paladin figure I'm almost always playing an average sized character since the larger a paladin's enemy are in relation to him, the more righteous and heroic he is.

File: 536 KB, 686x963, Iliira.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

5' 5'' tall, which, while just about average height for a human, is positively GIANT by drow standards (who average 4' 9' for males and 4' 11'' for females). She'd stand a full head taller than most in a typical drow city like Menzoberranzan.

This is largely due to her diet growing up. Iliira was born on the surface and raised by a human man at a seaside inn. She ate a far greater variety of food, getting nutrients that even drow nobles tend to lack, as well as having much easier access to real meat and veggies instead of lichen paste, mushrooms, and insects, which forms the bulk of the typical drow diet (with nobles occasionally having rothé meat, and not even all that often).

It's also totally meant as a reference to the height difference between North and South Koreans, which is itself caused by the food differential. North Koreans do NOT get good or enough food as children, and as a result the average North Korean is something like six inches shorter than the average South Korean.

6ft and 1/4 of an inch more.
Height is a common topic of discussion in our group, so everybody always makes characters of exactly their height. Any taller is you trying too hard, and any shorter makes you a manlet. (Or more of a manlet, in our shortest player's case.)

Not really...I came into D&D from a kind of weird angle, and managed to learn about drow before I learned about Drizzt, as unlikely as that sounds. Iliira was created before I knew Drizzt existed. Having said that, I've since gone on to try and make her as unlike Drizzt as possible while still having her be a Chaotic Good drow.

She honestly is a lot more like Aladdin crossed with Lina Inverse than anything. And frankly even the Lina influences are vague, it's mostly Aladdin.

I keep forgetting how little sense the imperial system makes.

>> No.54543369

That said, because the Imperial system is based off of reality (i.e., length of an actual human foot), Americas are generally better at eyeballing things like length or weight or temperature than Europeans are.

And anyway, blue whales being 100 feet long is more impressive than them being 33 meters long.

A smidge under 6'1, 185.5 cm in metric. Well muscled though, not fuckhueg but definitely buff and cut. Got a pretty face too.

I've noticed I'm the only one who consistently makes my characters average to decently tall in my group. Everyone else makes either giants for whom 6'5 is the minimum or they play women.

Seriously our party looked weird as hell for a while, everyone but the girl was tall. My character was the middle in height. Three tallest party members were 7'2, 6'7, 6'5.

i hate it when people create a character to compensate for their own insecurities, im 6.2 and 190 pounds, im well built but my character is a 5.4 balding ugly man, i have so much more fun, im literally playing kano from mortal kombat and i have a pet gretchin, i should mention im play dark heresy.ive never had more fun then with an ugly character, mary sueing your PC is so dumb, nobody else cres how pretty, handsome and tall your character is, unless they are also doing the same thing and they want to be prettier, taller and more handsome than you. your party sounds really dumb.

>> No.54544983

I'm 6'3, though I rarely think a lot about my character's height. If there's a good reason for him to be tall, I'll go for that, otherwise average height.

What I do do, however, is almost always go for characters that are as little like me as possible. Like drifting towards very religious characters despite being irreligious myself, or unforgiving hardasses with a thorn up their ass about other people despite me being an agreeable cunt who can't hold a grudge.

It's both insulting and stupid, if I had the same logic as you then I should assume that you play a short and balding guy because you think sbort and balding dudes can only be clowns.

My hacker girl in this cyberpunk game is in her 30s but I wrote "the shortest" for her height because I was absolutely determined to have her be the shortest member of the squad.

nothing really noteworthy about her but it would be a good night of feeling like you're normal. i'd almost rather bang her than someone objectively prettier because at that point you're like "ok you're banging me but you're out of my league, what's your angle"

A guy plays one handsome character and he's a wish fulfillment mary sue? Are you alright in the head? Why bring your own height and weight into it?

The fact you're so up in arms about if a character is handsome or not, plus the fact you admit your character is a reference shows you really don't know much about what makes a character good.

If someone wants to play a party face, odds are they're gonna be at least not ugly, confident, tall enough that they aren't overshadowed, and so on. All he described is how his character looks, and the funniness of how he's hardly the tallest character.

His PC isn't the tallest, or the hottest. He said he has a pretty face and decent body.
