Comments

Yeah so basically, commenting and voting on Other will get that trait thrown up there too.

Also with Warmonger, if you vote for the Mix and go with Fighter, Hatred and Arrogent, just choose Warmonger instead, it's pretty much a close as recap of the three combined.

Feel free to change your votes at will and yeah.

About Multiple and Split Personailites options: They are to represent two different options, Multiple can be from only an extra one to what ever amount, but is triggered by certain things (e.g. wearing a hat, taking off your shirt, sex, anything really).
Whilst Split is based on the twin personaility, sort of like the moods, you have the good-mooded person, then suddenly, the good-mooded person just turns into a bad-mooded person. Simply put, Split Personatility is just, from one to the other without any notice or provokes. Simply just snaps into the other one like people do with moods (hence why I made an example about it with moods).

Accidental Bully - Isn't a bully, but accidentally manages to get into this kind of stuff by pure accident (eg knocking someone into a shelf of items, actidentally closing the door on their fingers, etc. But still has that aura and look of a bully, dispite being the opposite or simply not being a bully at all)

Mix:

Intellectual OOC - since the IC intellectuals don't actually seem to be at times.

Mysterious cause people always keep trying to tell everyone their backstory immediately

Softy since too many people try being "the badass".

Softy. Nattez shoots too many people on sight nowadays because no one is nice.

I chose Honorable because its the closest to what I see being an issue with characters; There seems to be little in the way of Loyalty to people. I used to hang out with the oldschool ISMC because they were a clan that really stuck to gether and supported one another for the longest time while a lot of the other players were just out on their own and not really giving a shit about what anyone else was doing. I ended up idolizing the Badgers for basically the same reason; loyal characters that stood up for one another. Didnt have to be badass, just a person that doesnt just stand by and ignore everything. You dont have to be a troublemaker or a badass or a one lifer, I just thought it was always odd that even amongst the bad guys there didnt seem to be much loyalty in helping one another build up in the world.

“I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends”

Yeah. The canyon wasn't ruined heavily by raiders and rogue people, because there was groups of people who united and remained loyal to their members.

Strikes me very oddly that there's not many people out there who remain loyal to those close to them...

Loyalty is for the weak - or those of us that have been backstabbed more than their fair share to the point of no tolerance or faith in this species called "Humans".

Sign me up on that list and mark me down for OoC.

But come on man, you seriously can't be on the fence of "Oh look! Another person! *Stab stab stab*"... I mean, well you can with your past lol. But even you have to admit, there seems to be quite a lot of backstabbers around...

(Just as an aside, alot of those options could probably be condensed down to just eigth or so archetypes, quite a few are very similar to other options, bordering on redundant.)

Now for my two cents:

At the moment, honorable, kindhearted characters. In fairness, I'd have given the same answer two years ago aswell. In my mind there's always been an overabundance of dark and edgy characters in FE. Since lost I've lost count of the number of realtively similar stoic mercenaries I've met, each hardened and caloused in their own way against the horrors of the Province. There've been plenty of certifable badasses, plenty of ditsy and carefree souls still new to the world, and plenty of lone wolf wanderers.

If you're looking for an under-represented archetype, its definately in the realm of someone who has honor, and a kind heart. I've seen plenty of either but few who manage to balance both traits.

Up until now, we've only been looking at archetypes, templates for a character that are readily identifiable. However these only go as far as "The guy who always plays dice", or "The guy with the ace of spades on his helmet." They're one dimensional templates that while some more interesting than others, need to be filled with the other dimensions of personality and social interactions. If you ask me, how they end up interacting with the rest of the world and handling the obstacles in it are what will ultimately provide for a character that stands out from the crowds.

Only thing about limiting it to archetypes, is the fact that they'll end up having the rep they have, Soldier, Cheeky Kid, Family Man, etc. Instead of having a (yeah, way way way) way over the top list to choose from, which allows for more flexibelity instead of just the archetypes and their general as is rep.

Fair enough, but in future, if you have that many options, please refrain from using the poll function and just ask people to comment with their choice.

So many options break the poor site, and hurt your moderators' eyesight Tongue Out

Then perhaps I shouldn't add any more... *Adds a lot more options* ...lol, jokes!

I ain't Mike Jones, Keep my name out ya mouth, BITCH!

Dharsa Eaglebear's picture

Why can't I be a Vista... soft...that maybe an asshole under opinionated circumstances....who is kindhearted and endeavors to be humorous, and intellectual enough to create schematics, hateful and arrogant enough to hold them close.

 

She has a Blight Wolf, and though not a druggie hippy has a sympathy for a couple of them she knows and loves....the fighter she had become for those she loves is a dichotomy to what she was, which may be a multiple or split personality to some .

 

She takes a deep breath. “War monger. Mysterious. Hated. Unliked.”

 

Do I care...Should I?

 

*shakes her head*

 

What faith do I have? I am just a loser...can't win...don't got faith. I'm an insane push over... insane hyperactive! If I had a god...I'd do ANYTHING! I'd be....devious...strange...call on the elderly idiotic distinguished one lifers to make sense of this! I feel like a disgusting one lifer that feels for nothing. I am larger than life! I am a clone! The deaf and diseased scum, the shitty childhood pieces of dung should bow! I will bully and threaten the cowards easily, regardless of their short fuses, disadvantages...psh! Military. Joke, right?

 

I do not give a damn if they are trained professionals or some self proclaimed evil bad asses, none are honorable or trustworthy through their violence...Thereis no hope, no savior.

 

 

Long way to make a short point, but you are WAY over generalizing people. Stop stuffing us in cubby holes that make you comfy.
