What is my D&D character?

It's a fair cop. (Via James Nicoll)

I Am A: Lawful Good Gnome Sorcerer (6th Level)

Ability Scores:

Lawful Good A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment when it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.

Gnomes are in wide demand as alchemists, inventors, and technicians, though most prefer to remain among their own kind in simple comfort. Gnomes adore animals, gems, and jokes, especially pranks. They love to learn by personal experience, and are always trying new ways to build things. Gnomes stand 3 to 3.5 feet tall and live about 350 to 500 years.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Earth Day snow

It started falling at sunset and kept falling all night long.  In the morning there was several inches of wet, heavy snow and slush covering everything.  I've seen snow this late in spring, but can't recall seeing this much.  Well, if it had been two degrees warmer it would have falling as sleet and rain, which wouldn't have been as pretty but I wouldn't have had to shovel it either.

As I was shoveling a path down the drive to haul the trash can out, the dogs were having fun.

Tucker takes off after Ceilidh!

The back deck again covered in deep snow, maybe for one last time?  Who knows?

Shoveling off the car, as an ice scraper just won't do.

Our foster dog Goldie came from North Carolina but she doesn't seem to mind the snow.  In fact, she likes playing in it.
