Dear Dayton: When it comes to original character creation, what in your opinion is it that makes a character interesting? Which parts of the process do you enjoy and which do you dread the most when creating a character? Which characters are you most proud of? Which characters (either of your own creation or from the franchise in general) do you wish you could fuck sideways with a bat’leth? Many thanks. PS. Tending to your lawn? Throw in a couple more Vanguard books and you have yourself a deal, brother.
