Re: Tales of the North (OOC)
Huh. Actually, in offline real life I do tend to slip into an overly verbose manner of speaking sometimes, as the art of language is one to which I hold most dearly. As for stating the obvious, or seeming oblivious, it is a tactic used for humorous effect, and to simply help define the character as one of a more complex, multi-faceted background than the common fare.
Maybe it's just your problem. No one else seems to mind.
As for Lathander? Bryagh already has a good god. According to the Dragonborn text, they revere Bahamut as both a diety and as a father. While they can worship other gods, it is not common. I think I'll stick with Bahamut. ^_^
