The Character Quest - Come vote now!
« on: March 25, 2008, 09:06:20 PM »
We have here on the citadel an astounding number of Intelligent Races. Now, the ultimate goal of a written race in a game is to provide both a wide cultural conflict within the setting, as well as to create Characters, either PCs, or NPCs.

What I would like to see is for people to write characters of races that someone else has written up. If the write up is sufficient to be used as a guide to create a well written character, then the write up has reached its goal. If the write up is not sufficient, the questions required to write a character will help fix any gaps in the write up - Good for everyone around.

Yes, yes...  This seems good.  Almost something I might think about possibly taking part in for once, maybe....

Let's Do it!!

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.

Can we only create from the major races, such as equivalents to elves and dwarves and whatever the Strolenites have created, or subspecies/ethnic groups as well? (Such as Strolenite created ethnic elves or humans)

Me, I am more interested in ethnic humans than in translucent fungi beings from Yaggoth. :)

I would suppose either would work, but creating one of the Translucent Fungi from Yuggoth would be more of a challenge than making a Lyran.

Ok, I'm going to be honest. I don't like this idea as much as everyone else. Not to say I dislike it, i just think I need a little more help getting started. How about we start with some links to suitable races? Give a starting point. The only intelligent race I can recall enjoying was the new take on Drow, the Nekron I think.

 Maybe I'm just not as big on reading the new races as everyone else... But a little push in the right directon would be helpful, and wouldnt it make it better if we expanded to include all submission categorys? Not just NPCs? I would love to write up some new racial based items, or see some plots introducting said races into a game. Maybe even a city of them as a location.

This has much more potential than just NPCs, please consider expanding the quest. Thank you!   :up:

If you have races you would like to see others create for, post them up here, too - Don't forget, interesting things maybe lurking around the corner in categories like 'construct' too.

Oraki
Kel'Regar
Salvorathan
Felalunar

from me are all in varying categories of ready to work with.

Pieh has a point. There are so much more possibilities than just new NPCs where this quest is concerned.

My submissions into the quest:

Lord Pavisfacio, a Dunshar
http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=5027

and Yana the Dancer, another Dunshar
http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=5028

Didn't intend to write two, but Yana refused to be a footnote in Pavisfacio's write-up.

Instead of a quest, can we have a request that people start posting up subs that use at least one other submission (preferably not their own) incorporated in it.

If the winner wants to win by a winning vote then he has to vote for a winner while not voting himself to win.

Erm? Okay does this mean if the person wants to win they need to submit a vote but note vote for their own sub? Or does it mean they cannot vote at all? "To win by a winning vote they need to vote for a winner?" as in unless they voted for themselves if their sub wins they don't win? Not sure if it's just me Strolen, but your wording on that has me utterly baffled.  :what:
