Gossamer's Npc Challenge
« on: February 11, 2014, 03:20:55 PM »
I haven't been voting nor made any subs in a while, I won't bore you with excuses but there it is. I would like to change that though, and because of my recent work an idea came to me. An Npc challenge.

The rules are loose and simple:

Using my generator as a base for inspiration: http://readpostplay.com/g/91, create an Npc of any gender, species, significance, role and setting.

Edit: Please note that there's a version 2.0 as well now; http://readpostplay.com/g/145
And that you don't need to go with your first roll unless you REALLY want a challenge.

If anyone else would like to join in, that would be great fun and I promise I will vote on them, we'll have a poll to determine the winner in that case (no price except glory), otherwise I'll treat this as a personal challenge.

Do you have a freetext we can use to link it all together?

The Spouse Generator Version 2 is now available for further inspiration, the original Generator has also been partly upgraded.

As for progress on my character....There's just so many options! But, I will have it done before the end of the month HOPEFULLY.

I'm bumping this to see if there's any interest for it. It seemed like it at the start but then we only got the one entry. I shouldn't really be talking about this though because I am one of those lazy people who could not get anything out in sub form. BUT there's an official Npc quest running now as well, so extra incentive!

The ONLY entry so far, is Longspeak's Felicia Cortez http://strolen.com/viewing/7723
Which has also only gotten ONE vote so far, namely mine. Not very stylish people, so get cracking and vote on it!

An alternative was also suggested to me, namely that we generate ONE Npc, and then all participants give their own spin on it. Let me know if that sounds interesting.

Do you people really want me to defeat all of you simply because I was the only one who showed up? C'mon! Cowboy up!

Also, anyone who read Felicia when I first posted her, read her again. I fixed her a lot based on Goss' original feedback.

I added version 2.0 to the original post as well, which has a few more details, since people seem to be glossing over it. And note that you don't have to go with your first roll unless you're looking for a challenge. Great to have more participants though! :D

Wish I'd know about not having to go with the first roll :P

I'm trying to make the 3 I have fit.

Still working on it. Bit by tedious bit. I hate writing character backgrounds... Well, I don't hate it, but I don't like writing an entire biography, which is what it feels like..
