My Hero and Lord Raglan’s Scale

I’ve previously seen Lord Raglan’s Scale, and brought it back to my attention. So I decided to compare it to …

That’s right, Uhlrik. Whee! Geesh I’m a dork.

Specifically, in this case I’m referring to the classic, epic WFRP Legacy of the Gods incarnation of the big horned guy, the one also known as “Der Großedrache” (the Great Dragon… it’s a title that grew out of his old nickname The Dragon when his merc army metamorphosed into an ideologically-based brotherhood).  In other words, this version:

Comparing him to the scale was most interesting. His score as of the “current” and thus non-terminal timeline of the Legacy of the Gods campaign is 14. In some of my speculated/postulated outcomes for his life, he gains up to 4 more “points”. Thus, at base level he is just up from Jim Kirk and Robin Hood, and at possible future level he’s with Romulus, a point shy of Jesus.

I guess he’s an archetypal sort of guy.

    Hehehe… and here I thought your name came from that Heath Ledger movie, A Knight’s Tale. I am hopelessly lost when it comes to all these characters, for all that Ria tried to educate me. So in this, I am a complete and utter Dork.

    That’s okay, no worries. I’ve actually never seen A Knight’s Tale and didn’t know that was the name of a character from it. I created Uhlrik somewhere between 1990-91.

    It’s okay that you don’t know who Uhlrik is. I’m not even sure how much Ria knew about him since I’ve never played him in a game she was involved in.

    Could someone please compare Aeneas to the Lord Raglan Scale and if you could to the Joseph Campbell hero pattern as well and tell me what they scored and why/how. That would be a great help because all of this is so conufsing. The sooner you could do this the better.
