previously known as Ammahra Nahewenoka*
Halfling, Chaotic Good
Rogue 11 / Ranger 2, Lesser Reincarnated
then continued to a pure Rogue 20 Assassin
Ammahra wandered out of her safe little shire in December, 2009,
looking for some adventure and having no clue what was in store for
When she first left her village she was a weak halfling with some
good skills at disabling traps and opening locks and could sneak
past anything to get a soulstone surrounded by foes. Later she
became a bit stronger and was wielded two rapiers while attacking
with a vengeance any who dared harm her friends and allies.
Ammahra equally enjoyed sneaking ahead to take a surprise attack
on unsuspecting evil creatures or covering her party members'
backs while they started the fray. Although she gained a splash of
Ranger skills by her association with Amethysti (which led to
choosing 2 levels of Ranger), Ammahra then continued solidly on
the Rogue's path.
Kaibeth, Ammahra's lover and partner, was struck by tragedy late
in 2010 (a mental health crisis caused her to delete her character
on a whim).
The loss of her lover, friend, and partner left Ammahra devasted. In
the aftermath, Ammahra herself killed a part of herself by
eliminating her splash of ranger via a lesser reincarnation to play
a pure rogue. But she never forgot her lover Kaibeth and the rest of
her life seemed to drag by...
Several years later, Ammahra neared level 20 and contemplated
retiring from further adventures to instead operate a banking
business. By this time she rarely traveled into exciting
unfamiliar places due to both the sadness at the loss of her human
ally Kaibeth and the difficulty of soloing such accomplishments as
a mid-level first-life rogue.
Instead she reunited with Kaibeth, finding her soul reborn in an
elf's body and now near her experience level (Kaibeth's first life
had eventually started again at level 1 without any apparent
memory or benefit from her first 14 levels before that fateful
character deletion and had been paired instead with an alt).
They pledged to never part again and
planned their fate-bound journeys to Heroic Completionists.
At the end of 2013 the journey got underway...
Reborn as a half-orc barbarian instead of a halfling rogue, she
swung a great axe with brute force instead of piercing with
purposeful precision. About all the 2 lives had in common was
While young the diehard feature of the Berserker was useful, but
eventually she shifted her focus and heavily trained as an Occult Slayer.
She lived to see level 23, nearly level 24, before visiting the
life-shaper to reincarnate once again.
This lifetime spanned roughly 5 months as her life was full of
activities beyond the scope of adventuring as well. Our family moving
and settling into the new home was a priority.
Her third lifetime is her second life as a barbarian. She now knows
some of the strengths and weaknesses of the class, but definitely wants
the strength that comes with 30 extra hit points from past life feats
before moving on to other experiences.
She remembers some of her previous training this life and has attained
level 6 within a matter of days. Will the rest of this lifetime pass
I feel her chaotic inclinations are waning and her next lifetime will
most likely take her alignment to neutral good.
Frenzied Berserker / Occult Slayer
This was Akateva's first lifetime as a dwarf. Her alignment has indeed shifted as well. Some things will be very different this life, others mostly the same. The early levels are flying past...
On our first night we saved Korthos, running every quest out there in under an hour. That pace will surely not continue though once our new adventurer recruit arrives. I don't even know his character's name, but Kaibeth's (real-life) son will soon be joining us in the wilds and dungeons. His eagerness to join our party has rushed us into this lifetime so we can play together.
To see 100 hit points before even running our first adventure of this lifetime was definitely a first for me; the guild buffs along with some nice gear and dwarven constitution work nicely with the 2 barbarian past lives Akateva has completed.
This became another extended lifetime, this time for medical reasons and came to a close with a vacation during 2015's Risia Ice Games while Risian Sparrow competed on the ski ramps. After running a few final raids at the close of Risia, Akateva will be ready to embark on the next leg of her journey.
* Realizing that I'd be more comfortable being known by
what had become my standard online nickname of Teva in DDO as
well, Ammahra sought out a magistrar and had them inscribe an
official scroll in recognition of her name change to Akateva. (she
could not be renamed simply "Teva" as another (inactive) character
had already claimed that title within the official record books of
Sarlona). Her last name may change as well to easily identify my
main solo character, Makazokri, instead of using a region wherein we
no longer dwell (Nahewenoka means "near Wenatchee-Okanogan").
