Bazidal

Male dream dwarf sorcerer 8
Dungeons & Dragons v.3.5 (D&D Tactics: The Farce)

History

Bazidal has a sunny disposition for a dwarf - which is to say, he isn't surly all the time. His main interests include explosions, drinking, and the occasional exploding drink. While he is planted firmly on the side of good, Bazidal's motivations for adventuring may be less than pure, as evidenced by the wake of destruction that follows in his path.

Bazidal practices his desctructive magic to the exclusion of all else, up to and including self defense of any kind. He manages to survive despite this simply because the party values his abilities highly - Metalwagon generally stands directly in front of Bazidal in combat unless he is needed elsewhere.

Playing Tips

Bazidal is the party's arcane caster, although the popular term "nuker" is perhaps more accurate. His non-magical attacks and his defensive capabilities are laughable, though his dwarven nature provides him with a decent chunk of hit points. Bazidal does not ever want to be in the thick of the action, preferring to stay back and blow the enemies up from a safe distance.

Bazidal's spell selection includes at least one attack spell at every level, as well as several debuffs. He also carries a fully stocked, 9th-level caster wand of magic missiles that will ensure he always has something to do.

Bazidal's main power comes in the form of various single-use items and feats that can dramatically affect the battlefield. His Sudden Maximize feat will enable a single giant fireball, while his bead of force and scroll of antimagic field can each single-handedly turn losing battles around. If he starts taking damage, his scroll of trollshape can give the party an extra tank while simultaneously allowing him to heal!

Character Creation Details

Bazidal was created at 8th level using the point buy 25 method of generating ability scores. He has above-standard treasure for his level (31,325 gp worth vs. 27,000 gp worth).

In addition to the core D&D 3.5 books, the following books were used in Bazidal's creation:
Complete Arcane (CAr)
Player's Handbook II (PH2)
Races of Stone (RS)
Spell Compendium (SpC)

OK, the final question! What is the greeting given by dwarves throughout the Final Fantasy series (as much as they appear, anyway)? HINT: It is translated slightly differently from game to game, but it is the same greeting (and any variation will be accepted).

EDIT: Testing

No, although dwarves tend to have jet black skin (assuming we can go by tiny sprites, anyway), at least in FF4.

I don't recall there being a comma, but that's correct. Oddly, it's "Lali ho!" in the original Final Fantasy II (US) as well as Final Fantasy IV Advance, but the interim version (on Final Fantasy Chronicles) used "Rally ho!" Final Fantasy IX also translated it as "Rally ho!"

This was from the fan translation of FF5.
