So...um...my friends and I did a personality test a while back, and turns out this upcoming campaign, we're all making characters based off of who we are in the test.
The problem is...I'm a loaner. Like, I spend time with other people online doing stuff, and sure, I work with others at work and associate with people at local events, but beyond all of that reasoning, the test said I'm a loner, which brings me to the question of, how does one design a loner in pathfinder?
I can understand how Paladins would be the biggest of them all, but, really, any of the classes could be designed as such. Now, here's the kicker. The campaign I'm playing in involves us later on being the leader of some faction, country, nation, or something, and I'm not sure how a loner could lead a country. I mean, I know someone somewhere in history was a loner, but I've never heard of such a person, and I don't quite know what to do.
Right now, all I'd like is a general skeleton theme to work with, like, he had tons of siblings, but much rather preferred studying in his room or whatever. As a result, he became a wizard of sorts. But that's just a small example. What ideas can you guys think of?
Here's the question, why? Do you want a sanctified reason for coming to a gaming table and then refusing to communicate with anyone? What you're looking for is called... a solo campaign, which means you go one on one with a GM or buy one of those Tunnels and Trolls adventures.
The reason you have a problem finding loaners as leaders.. is because they don't. One of the sacrifices involved in leadership is foregoing that option.
