How in the goddamn hell did he randomly roll a NEARLY PERFECT Ranger? He got the best Ranger background, a good ranger race (only elf races are better, imo), amazing skills. The only "negative" thing is his favored enemy isn't very good, but favored enemy is useless anyhow!
An actual question, would his COMPLETELY FUCKING RANDOM skill in Cartography mean he might have a map of this area? That'd be a great way to incorporate him into the party, since they were already looking for a guide before they left.
Also, is this whole crazy Gnome Civil War thing now a weird part of the CoS universe canon? Could that even be a thing that comes up?
