Anyone out there ever play a character that was essentially for noncombat in a combat oriented game? I would love to hear some stories to help give me motivation and ideas for the future. Being a preacher and a medic should cover a lot of this roleplaying for this adventure, and I want to avoid combat for as long as possible. This type of roleplaying may come in handy for me as I will be playing a Dr. Who game at GenCon and I would like to be ready in case I don't have any real combat abilities. (If you have seen the show, you know that physical combat is often a last resort ranking far, far behind simply running away). Also, I know it is pretty easy to never have combat in Call of Cthulhu, but combat is not the main focus in that game as many things you try to fight will simply kill you. I am focusing on noncombat characters in combat oriented games.
