A Sound Weaver, apparently. Tricky with illusion magic and arrows.
"Blood Hunter", which I guess makes sense if you consider that my adolescence was in the 90s. So grimdark, you guys. Why are you looking at my bandoliers of spell component pouches like that? Can’t a guy have lots of pouches? I’m well prepared.
I figure that if I keep children, animals, and superfluous attachments out of my life, it’ll just make it more likely that a metaphysical director will pick me to be a protagonist.
I should, like, move to a new place every few months, just to kick up the chances. And that place should be a spooky old manor house.

Literally the most important thing you will read today.
the true american experience is wondering if you just heard firecrackers or gunshots
PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE
bonus points: both are illegal in your state and you still cannot tell
…they’re almost impossible to confuse with one another if you’ve heard both before. I’ve been in shootings and I’ve been at fireworks displays. Guns let you know they’re guns.
What if you’ve mostly only ever heard them together? Like say, in the rural south around the Fourth of July, every night. Becuase I still can’t tell which is which.
Heh, I see your point. Well, firstly, congratulations on never having been in a crossfire! Secondly, since bullets break the sound barrier, they shouldn’t echo the same way that fireworks do (the residual echo effects from a bullet are more due to the doppler effect if I recall correctly), and it’s in the echo that you can tell the difference.
The majority of pistol rounds are subsonic, so in that case you’re mainly hearing the semi-contained gunpowder explosion. Since fireworks are also semi-contained gunpowder explosions, they should be relatively difficult to distinguish, right? I mean, in theory, depending on the gun, and depending on the firework.
