I chose the class mainly because I enjoyed my Captain so much – particularly the Companion aspect. But most importantly, because I really, really, really want a pet fox (since I can't have a real one, a virtual companion will suffice).
I went with another Woman, since Beornara was so dear to me. And again, she is from Rohan. I decided to try and make her look and seem more Nordic in appearance, hence the white-blond hair and grey eyes. I'm still trying to work out the family tree/back stories for each of my characters, but Brytja, I have decided, is the daughter of my Hunter: hence her full name, Brytja Bregoladsdóttir.
|Brytja's companions: Bjarn, Freyja, and Frothgár|
Now, she's plugging along through Garth Agarwen to catch up on rep with the Eglain and master the other two crafts in the Woodsman vocation – Woodworker and Forester.
I've found that while I enjoy having a Companion and ability to stun/daze multiple targets, I still prefer my close-combat classes, primarily Captain and Champion (did I mention that in my severe case of alt fever, I also rolled another Champion on the Nimrodel server?).
