Thank you all for your replies in this thread. Really it helped a lot.
And to @Alucard89: I know why this character was created this way and I know that player just love to be tank, take everything on his body and armor and then in few simple slashes kill everything around. It's his thing. He loves taking damage and giving it back. He's best at this (and because of Smith belonging to Strength, he is incredibly crafter with no skill in it
) and I do not want to overpower his character because I want him dead or because he's annoying. No at all. I love his character, she is incredible in her hateful towards Elves and Dwarfs. No I just want for him to be feeling threaten at some times and do not go to every battle knowing that he has 99% of surivality chance (1% of lose due bad luck on dices).
For example. On last session they have encountered a squadron on 20 Quards riders scouting area near the coast - and then for the first time I noticed that he hesitated and after diplomatic way of resolving conflict, still in character's role, he admitted that these riders most probably would be too much even for his Orcish female berserker fighter. And that's great. This is exactly what I was aiming for. I just wanted him to be scared, to realise that even biggest warrior on this planet can't always win. I just wainted him to think "wait a second, maybe I can't win this fight? Let this Aslene Hunter or Elvenspring Minstrel talk for a while, and I just stand in the back with my hands on my swords if things would come south after all. Hopefuly not.". And I achieved this and I'm happy with the effect.
To summarize everything. I know how to use Monsters and NPCs to threaten a little bit more this orcish fury of hate and blood if needed. And sometimes it needs to be done. Not everyone is invicible. But I certainly not going to use these tricks against my player on every day basis.
@Kayne - No problem! Ok, so it seems that this is some good player, not some murderhobo
. I knew players like that who loved building super tanky high damage melee characters- they usually just want to feel that party is secured when "things go south" as you said. Judging from your description it's probably someone who min-max every RPG character. But as long as he is roleplaying and work with team- I personally like that type of characters. Especially that usually he can do in battle things that allow me to expand more his impact upon world, as word goes by that there is mighty warrior somewhere (maybe someone will be interested in giving someone like that an impossible mission? Or even a duel?).
For example my dwarf player at one session decapitated 2 Iron Guards in plate armors with just a hatchet in hand (Axe Fighter 2 + Executioner 3 combo) and I immidietly rised his reputation by 1 as this deed went viral in Forbidden Lands (and among Rust Brothers of course). I thought that I will be able to break him and take him into custody (original part of plan) but he just deleted them and I really loved it
(Now he is called Grimar "The Guillotine") . Naked dwarf with hatched decapitating 2 elite enemies
You said he hesitated and let other players resolve this in more diplomatic way- good, that means that he knows that not every fight can be won by combat. Which is also hard for any Orc to realize I bet . So all is good it seems. It may even lead to character development. I think I understand your problem, you want this player to feel danger, which is good. FL is harsh and mystical dark fantasy world (reminds me sometimes of Berserk a little bit). I will admit myself that as GM I once or twice lied about Critical Roll result behind my screen when one of my players was broken (cause otherwise she would die), because I had plans in story for them and I strongly prefer a good story over killing my players
(or I am too lazy to work with new character maybe?).
Well, still Orc with racial trait and Berserker will be extremely though anyway. Their racial is honestly imo best, together with Humans. Few more sessions and you will probably have the strongest warrior in whole Forbidden Lands at your table. Hope you will get some epic tales out there!
Glad we all helped- have fun with your adventures.
