Little Bigtoes [RPG]

Little Bigtoes is a memorable character I recently played in a Pathfinder campaign that lasted from around level 5 to level 11.  The concept of Bigtoes can be summed up quickly:  a little gnome with a huge hammer and a predilection for thuggish crime.  His combination of the grossest coarseness and a tiny heart of gold for an alchemist named Rosie proved great fun to role-play.  He was built as a true multiclass Fighter/Rogue, and didn't end up being especially useful in combat until near the end of the campaign when the right combination of feats and class abilities came together.  I developed him mechanically to follow an (unoptimized) strategy as swinging as hard as he possibly could at every opponent he saw, which meant that when it worked, it worked pretty well.  Perhaps his most memorable moment came when a fellow PC ran into a confusion trap and attacked Bigtoes.  Bigtoes swung back, critted, and dropped the fellow stone dead.  The gaming group will laugh about that for a long, long time.  When that campaign came to an end, Bigtoes had saved enough cash to build a house across the street from his mom's so that he and his alchemist sweetheart Rosie could retire in style . . .
