Two thumbs and a tail up

I am reminded of a tale from the American Revolution where a young woman... ummm... plyed her charms against an English General. She was an American spy and was both passing information on AND keeping the English general occupied when he should of been out on campaign.

If some of her customers are "men of importance", she could pass on intelligence to the Orcish nation. In addition, should the Humans try and "wipe out the Orcish threat", she could work the same kind of "charm" and do more damage to the Human Campaign than a mob of Orcish warriors.

I'm really not sure to make of Dragoon's comment. It is my understanding that a slut is commonly percieved to be a woman who is willing to exchange sex for various things, mostly the attention of men. Most 'sluts' would seem to suffer from poor self-esteem and gain a sense of welf worth in the attention favored on them by their male peers. Some, are simply not intimidated by the title slut, which is often applied to any woman who seems to get more of anything that others think she should. Now, if the exchange is exclusively material, or currency, then the woman is not a slut, but is instead a whore, or more politely prostitute. Thus, it is not surprising that she ditched the regular guy in favor of the rich guy, the promise of higher returns for her services.

The thing that surprises me is that many people substitute game events for real life experiences. A co-worker regularly espouses his nightly games of Madden 2K5 as if he himself were actually on the football field, kicking and recieving each play. Is this a call sign of Gen Y? Go to Comment

Half-breeds do often get the bost out of their parent races - see mongrel dogs, who are frequently smarter and healthier than either of their parents.
Likewise, amongst humans, exceptional results may be born where blood mixes, so why not in fantasy?

I will use Malhonne in my current campaing... she fits perfectly.
Thus a 5/5 from me.

Mata Hari was a prostitute-courtesan-whatever in Paris, who spied secrets from the Germans by bedding their officers... see the paralelle?

Marta Hare? Dunno. Does it have something to do with bunnies or Hare Krishna? :D Go to Comment

Tell me. I've got two colleagues I really like, the're both smart girls with great character, yet: one of them is rather homely, and the other one of elfin beauty.
Now I'm a rather reasonable guy, not driven by my hormones 100% of the time, but: guess whom I lend my books more often, offer to learn with her and even help shopping... Bingo. Go to Comment

The 'value' of Malhonne should not be judged based on whether we like her character or not, but instead by asking the question: how worthy is she as an addition to my game?

Every NPC hereis a GM tool. Of course that most of the visitors of this page have had or will have a bad experience with a 'slut' they fell/fall for - but that does not concern this post. Of course her character is flawed - but then, we'd not be able to post any villains here if we posted only characters whose personality we like. Go to Comment

I do not have an opinion on this character, but I do have an opinion on the latest comments:

A roleplaying setting could be much like the real world. I do not know about you guys, you might be puritans or activists for the rights of females, but in this world there are alot of sluts, whores, dirty old men with lewd comments and so on. I see no reason why such characters should not exist in a fantasy setting too. Yes, she is a slut. So what?

I'd wager people like her because they see the contrast between being a half-orc and not being totally disfigured (as most half orcs are wont to be). A half orc that could serve as a spy, an assassin, a thief, a whore, a slut... She opens up new possibilities to the boring and cliched half-orc pattern (zugzug, me KILL). Many plots can conceivably be built around her as opposed to the heavy chested standard fantasy litterature cover girl.

I say: Cleavage for the sake of cleavage could be bad. "Cleavage with a cause" can be good.

(And, BH, wherever did you read that she was a better fighter than men? Did you accidentally read about Red Sonja before posting?) Go to Comment

Dragoon God's comment on 2005-04-16 09:34 PM
Yes, her half orc side is a decent background,and the plots could be intruging, but I have seen to many sluts that will just abandon you after they get enough money. Example: In KOTOR1, in the cantina in Taris a slutty women says if you buy her a 20 credit beer you'll get laid. To my unsurprised dismay, she ditched me for a rich guy. See what I mean? And thats just one instance. Go to Comment

Hmmmm....thats true. She is a good character I suppose, slut/hore/prostitute aside. I personally have seen too many of these characters but in te sake of gameplay expeirience she would bea great character. I still cant believe this NPC generated so many comments. Go to Comment
