At a tangent nut...

My current character, Feren the Skald, was brought to life by a mistake. His 100 word write up had him 'renowned as a tracker' and this is the ability I dutifully created on his character sheet. But I failed to also request a tracking ability for the phrase, and by the time I noticed my mistake, my reputation far exceeded my ability (the default 6). However, rather than requiring fixing, Feren's continual efforts to avoid having to demonstrate the ability for which he has earned such a reputation ("Well why don't you youngster's show me what you can do, eh") are now a considerable cause of campaign amusement. I'm sure a tale lies in there somewhere about how Feren gained his undeserved reputation, but it remains to be revealed.
