The Warden

The next member of the Viking Fellowship is Redranth of Bree the Warden, race of men.  Red is the Tank and reluctant leader of the Viking Fellowship.  Red reminds MMO Viking of Jon Snow the bastard of his favorite fantasy book series A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, also of Capt. Miller, Tom Hank’s character in Saving Private Ryan both reluctant leaders.  Redranth is a Warden, an unusual Tank class that wears medium armor only, no full platemail on this tank, but can heal himself in combat.  Red fights with mace and shield style and can throw javelins.  Wardens are a technical class to play, not good for mmo beginners but advanced players like Red can really make them awesome.  Red has always been the best tank MMO Viking has ever played with.  I’ve been so spoiled by Red I will hardly ever do a hard adventure without him there.  I also love the fact that Redranth is a sports fan.  Beowyf has lost several gold to Redranth this football season.  Damn you Peyton Manning and your golden arm!  Red has a PVP (player vs player) background and has a drive to be the best of the best when he plays and expects the same from his friends.  During battles if someone screws up obviously and badly Red will call them out.  An example would be “Beo, are u serious?”.  Shaming them horribly into compliance.

  1. You forgot one crucial detail! Red may be a good tank, but he, like every great figure throughout the ages, has a debilitating weakness — Achilles has his heel, Baldr has his mistletoe, Captain Planet has his pollution, and Red has his shield! While nigh invulnerable with his shield, once it breaks (which happens often!) he becomes as powerless as Jadis on Hatchet, leaving the rest of the fellowship ever fearful when we group with him!

  2. Aye good point Nin! Many times has Beo wondered why did Red suddenly turn into a paper girly man tank? To only find out his shield was broke again for the 34589298544 time.
