Altered my character's name, giving her a public alias and making the team name work a bit better. Plus, it makes sense that she'd come up with a name to use while traveling, so people from her home don't instantly recognize the name and go, "Oh yeah, that's her!"

Is that a reference to Brynhildr from the Volsung? If so, I approve.

 Here's Shun, my mute assassin/ninja who communicates via magical etch-a-sketch and is completely hidden by a heavy cloak. Obviously, a barrel of fun.

Absolutely. A fierce warrior-woman who is sometimes described as a valkyrie, and others described as being strong enough to throw boulders it normally takes 12 men to lift? Sounds like a good reference. :D

Hmm I need a willing team wishing for another team member, any takers? ;)
The game would implode into rocket tag in a twisted mockery of all that is wrong with 3.5, angels would weep and the skies would fall, and it would all be your fault. Yours and yours alone.

The family was torn apart within moments, Rosemarie suffering fatal wounds, and Bartholomew and Irving doing only marginally better. Snowflake plane shifted Bartholomew to anywhere but Shiver Star, then set to healing Irving.
When Irving awoke, the two calmly discussed the matter, Irving conveniently iced to the floor. For a short while, as Irving tried to cling to the creature he was now closest to, Snowflake continued doing everything he could to train the bear for a life of vigilanteism, until his patience grew thin, and he disappeared.

    Do you have a secret identity? If so, who knows it? Do you hide it from people who are close to you? Why?
The Lumbering Lancer, known to Snowflake. Not worth hiding.

    Do you work well on teams and in groups? Are you a leader or a follower?
Team player. Don't take orders, don't give orders. Commands are merely suggestions warranting quicker consideration.

Protect everything as part of a close team of heroes!

    What is your greatest fear? Why? What do you do when something triggers this fear?

"Honestly, I don't know if this non-core option is 1.0-ready"

No, it isn't. It may be updated at some point but it isn't 1.0-ready, which is why it isn't in 1.0. Anything that isn't in the 1.0 core rulebook should be treated as not being 1.0 compliant and used with caution if at all.

~EDIT~

I don't know about the rest of you, but I kind of like TUFFS. If I use Fars' other name, it could be TUFLS. Lol. (Fars and Lory is interchangeable for him)
