Do 30
« on: August 19, 2006, 04:56:28 PM »
http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=2952

The 30: The thirty miscellaneous people who are part of some group. These are drop and play personalities for a given group.
 
30 Barkeeps
30 Policemen
30 Guildsmen
30 Mages
30 Rangers
30 Space Marines
30 Court Nobles
30 Androids

The 30 is an exercise in character creation. Each member is part of a group or organization or professional archetype. Each of these characters is basically the same (in terms of skills and mechanics) with some minor differences. They are provided here as a quick grab for a group member's personality and chrome.

Each character will be listed by its archetype or personality hook (in bold), and one to three lines of description. See the submissions in this group for examples.

I had to do a raunchy one.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Don't forget you can do duplicates. If we emphasize personalities over types, you can put out sets of personalities with linked friendships/ rivalries/ plots, all ready to be plopped down.

I just did the 30 criminals  :up:
A necromancer is only evil in the eye of those who hate him and only hated by those who do not understand him.

People just a reminder

Just a reminder and my 2 cents worth:
Each of these characters is basically the same (in terms of skills and mechanics) with some minor differences. They are provided here as a quick grab for a group member's personality and chrome.

Can we pull back from the Character Seeds - Archetypes for kinds of characters.  Sure those posts can be handy, but we are looking for groups mostly. You can have variations within the character archetypes for kinds of rogues/ priests - The fantatic can be the quiet kind or the loud kind for quick example. Now for characters like kings and barkeeps, where there is only going to be One of them in an area, then character seeds works well.  But if there it is 30 of something that you might encounter 30 of at one time, then aim for personalities.
