Gameplay Edit

As a dual-classed fighter (7) > cleric, Anomen works best as a tank who can also heal / buff. His low dexterity does him no favors, so it is advised to equip him with the Gauntlets of Dexterity to boost his defense.

He has the following gear when he joins the party: Mace, Splint Mail, Helmet, Sling, Bullets and Delryn Family Shield which can only be used by him.

BiographyEdit

When asked about his past, ANOMEN is quick to state that he has been serving the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart for years, and after his Test, he will be a full and true knight. Anomen is reluctant, however, to speak of his noble upbringing, saying only that he entered the Order without the support of his father, Lord Cor Delryn. Since he could not be sponsored as a squire, Anomen chose the route of the warrior and priest of Helm, the god of guardians, and has fought many battles over the years against forces of evil. Anomen often says that he is confident that he will prove worthy of his knighthood, but sometimes seems to be trying to convince himself of that fact more than anyone.

Dialogues Edit

ANOMEN02
Fair lady, what brings you to this cesspool of corruption?
ANOMENC6
Our time together has been vile! When next we meet, it will not be under the guise of friendship!
ANOMENB5
Nay, Father. It is time for this foolishness to end.
ANOMENB4
Speak not of my mother, drunkard. You were never worthy of being her husband.
ANOMENB8
I have been cowering at your feet for all my life. Goodbye, Father. Perhaps I shall see you again before you drink yourself to death.
ANOMEN49
Hey hey hey, Edwina! I shall be your champion at the next tournament that we come to if only you give me a piece of your robe, uh, that is, dress to adorn my shield.
ANOMEN55
I assure you, noble Keldorn, that I am well versed in the statutes and moral laws of the Order.
ANOMEN56
Sir Keldorn, I thought that I made it clear the last time you brought this up: I have no need of further lessons, especially from you! I near my knighthood now.
ANOMEN57
My thanks, Sir Keldorn. You're a fine example of honor and chivalry, and all in the Order look up to you. I feel that I must apologize for being rude to you before—the brashness of youth, as you have said.
ANOMEN59
Oh, you are pathetic, Keldorn. You are a hypocrite and a liar! You care nothing for me, only for your honor. Why should I believe anything you say? I'd spit in your face, but you aren't worth even that!
ANOMENA4
Helm's beard! I cannot believe this! All my life... all my LIFE, I've slaved for the Order, and now I am cast aside like garbage! Curse them all!

PersonalityEdit

Anomen is a squire in a large paladin order and deeply insecure due to his father's treatment of him. He overcompensates through aggressive behavior and one-upmanship and is shown to care a great deal about what others think of him. However, Anomen also seems to want to do right, and protect those who can't protect themselves.
