-Dwarf metagame-
« on: July 15, 2008, 06:24:11 pm »
It's that time again, folks.
Obviously, i cannot see reason and stop making and quitting meta games, so here's a new one.


Meet Trilby the dwarf. (unless you have a better name.)


To make this meta game, you'll have to decide what Trilby will be, a generic warrior? a backstabbing dirtbag rogue? a devilishly handsome magician? or a ... erm.. bard. anyway, make something up together, unless you're just can't work together.

And then, you will have to decide what his starting proffesion/persona/situation will be, will he be a guard? or perhaps a captain of the guard in a mighty fortress(dwarven or human, doesn't matter. i suppose the universe this will be set in is the dwarf fortress universe, with some twists.) or will he be a daring adventurer, seeking treasure from dark caves and dungeons? perhaps a skilled scientist living in the forest, shunned by the local villagers after using some of them for experiments?

the choice is yours *x-files theme*

Like i said, it will be set in the dwarf fortress era, but more gritty, i suppose i might go all nothing is taboo in this one, or extremely violent.
hammerspace will be used.

Wannabe Dragon-hunter, after his father who died fighting dragons long ago.
No, the dragon didn't kill him. He had stumbled into a small pool of water and drowned.
Looking to bring back his family honor, he hopes to do what his father could not: eradicate every single dragon in the region.


Yes?

Make it even more embarrassing, his father never made it to the cave, he fell off the mountain while climbing up the sheer rock cliff walking a gentle incline to get to the dragon.

Tsk tsk.


Dragons are of the Fomorii.  The Fomorii are allies of the dwarves.  Go get some revenge against the hill dwellers!

Should we even bother coming up with ideas?  Everytime we have a character do something you don't like you get bored and quit.

He looks like an out of work craftsman.  He's down on his luck and turns to crime/adventure to make some money.

i won't.

i swear it on the precious.
he could be a vicious cheese maker bent on having rough dwarf-sex with every male dwarf in town, for what i care.

anyway, suggestions. should i run a poll for thee?

another thing would if you'd like me to change his appearance.

and what the hell is a Fomorii? should i know them?

Yes, but make it both sexes. I want to see how taboo you won't be.

He is a bone carver who worked happily until one day he discovered that the bolts he was making were made from Fluffles, his favorite kitten.  He kills the butcher and hilarity ensues.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

A Fomorii is a water demon of ancient Celtic mythology, up there with elves, dwarves, etc.

I wouldn't force you to use the old mythology, though.   I was just making a joke on the fact that everyone nowadays uses the Tolkien formula.
