Ask a Character: Fritz Warrenberg

Today we have everyone’s favorite gnome illusionist, inventor, and womanizer, Fritz Warrenberg.  Well, he has a few fans, so I’m keeping the everyone.  Along with him is his loyal riding sheep, Bessaria, who will be busy eating out of the garbage can for some odd reason.

Fritz is an old gnome, who works at the Hamilton Military Academy as the siege weapon instructor.  This means he teaches kids how to build and use catapults, siege towers, ballistas, and things that he’s invented.  Oddly enough there are very few injuries in his classroom.  Being a gnome, he has the ability to feel if a path will lead to his death, which is called ‘The Void’.  A gnome suddenly goes blind for a brief moment and they know to take another route.  It isn’t a perfect system, but it makes them very hard to kill.

Getting back to Fritz, he’s a gnome of knowledge and is highly renowned among his people for his inventions.  He’s also seen his share of adventures, so he could be the voice of experience in the group.  That’s if he didn’t stop to hit on every attractive woman in his line of sight.  This translates to every woman in his line of sight, who hasn’t rejected him or hit him yet.

So, ask your questions of our resident gnome.  If you have a question for any of our past participants, their days are linked just below.

    Which one hits harder, a blonde or a brunette?


    • In my experience, raven-haired women hit the hardest of all. There’s something about those women that fuels their fists with rage. Though, between the two I would have to go with a blonde. The reason is because female orcs are blonde more often than brunette, so they tip the average to that scale.

      Nimby: Who bet on his first question being about getting slapped by woman?

      Aedyn: That was me, but you can send the winnings to my temple.

      Luke: I knew I shouldn’t have bet on the sheep.

      Nyx: I can’t believe people want to talk to you idiots.


      • Olivia Stocum says:

        And I’m betting the female orcs pack quite the wallop. Do they hold a grudge as well?


      • In general, orcs are very forgiving and believe grudges bring about bad spirits. The except is revenge in a blood-for-blood manner.

        Now if you wants grudges, elven women are not to be scorned or angered in any way. Once crossed, you’ll have to work hard to gain their forgiveness.

        Nyx: Half-elves aren’t much better.


      • Olivia Stocum says:

        I have heard this about elven women …


      • Yup . . . so, got any dinner plans, young lady?

        Nyx: Behave, gnome, or you’ll be dinner for your sheep.

        Aedyn: We cannot take you two anywhere without a fight.

        Luke: At least we don’t have to pay for entertainment.

    Double like. Fritz is awesome. I’ll have questions later.

    So Fritz, regale us with a story of your latest conquest!


    • Well, I’m working on a method to transfer blood from a healthy person into someone that has suffered severe blood loss. I’ve finally managed to create flexible tubes and small, hollow dagger to remove and inject the blood. At least it works in the test phase. I’ve added some cleansing spells on the tubes to make sure the blood is clean and added a healing balm on the inside, so the fresh blood acts like a mild healing potion.

      Nyx: I think he means women, Fritz.

      Oh . . . I’ve been so busy with work, but there’s a cute, little half-elf that I’ve been seducing. She’s got beautiful violet eyes and legs that go on for

      Nyx: Keep going and the feet attached to these legs are going to do become acquainted with the back of your head.

      Uh . . . conquest is a very vague term. I consider it a victory that she hasn’t killed me yet.

      Nimby: Don’t worry, Fritz! We have a bet going on how long that will last.


  4. Bastet says:

    Love gnomes and this one sounds like a real love! So old Fritz what do you think of female black elves who also happen have bardish qualities.


    • I’ve never courted a chaos elf before, but that’s more out of their disinterest and their culture love of assassinations than anything on my part. Truthfully, I find that all women are beautiful in their own way and one simply has to be observant enough to see it. From the towering beauties of the orcs to the short matrons of the dwarves, an admirer of women, such as myself, can find the beauty in everything.

      Nyx: What in the world is he talking about?

      Nimby: I think it’s poetic speak for having no standards and being an epic horn-dog.

      Luke: You guys couldn’t let him get this without teasing, huh?

      Nyx: If he’d stop pinching me on the butt with his magic, I’d be nicer.

      Fritz: That’s a compliment in my culture!


  5. Hmm, can I ask a question that doesn’t involve girls? (Charles, may I please?)
    I’m asking anyway: have you had other pets besides sheep? I’ve heard pigs can be pretty smart, too. And how did Bessaria get the last name Spamcakes? Were you thinking about eating her?


    • Damn Earth technology and deleting my glorious answer! This wouldn’t happen if you had gnomes. Let’s try this again.

      Spamcakes comes from the fact that she was born to Mr. and Mrs. Spamcakes. I bought her from a gnome whose family has been breeding riding sheep for centuries. They use surnames to keep bloodline records. Though, I’m not sure how you found out about her last name. Even these guys don’t know it.

      Over the years, I’ve had cats, dogs, mice, snakes, bog hares, and other pets, but Bessaria is different. She is a noble riding beast and family, much like Luke and Stiletto. So, one could say that it has always been sheep because that is what my people ride. We are too small for horses, donkeys, and griffins. The riding hounds of the halflings are the right size, but too fast. We gnomes are rarely in a rush. Don’t even get me started on the orcs and their rhinoceroses.

      Aedyn: Tell her that you sing to Bessaria every night before she goes to sleep.

      Fritz: That’s rather embarrassing.

      Aedyn: Actually, it is rather sweet and sensitive.

      Nimby: Women love sweet and sensitive.

      Fritz: I will never use Bessaria to pick up women.

      Nyx: Mark this date down in your calendar. Today you’ve heard that there is something Fritz won’t do to get a woman.
