Another RP meme

I ganked bits and pieces of this from sundry persons, including tashiro, innocent_man and twillitts among others.

Name 12 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow.  List your characters numbered 1 to 12, with the name of the RPG you played them in. Once you’ve picked your 12 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly.  (No peeking until you’ve picked your characters!) Put your answers behind a LJ-cut.

I’ll list my characters in no particular order. there are several others like Linda Lee, Torran,  Commissar, Fenris or Gorm that I seriously thought of listing, but there are just too many.

  1. Uhlrik Gunderit Der Größerdrache (WFRP – Chaos Beastman merc warlord/king, alternately a GMPC, true NPC, and sometimes regular PC. He’s probably my favorite of all my PCs. Virtual demigod and smitemeister.)
  2. Alexander “Axe” Sherman (WtF – Iron Master Cahalith Progressive punk singer-songwriter, alpha of the Dive Bombers pack/punk band)
  3. Broughan Willowshade of Espar (AD&D2 ‘Realms Gnome Fighter/Illusionist. Int 19, Wis 6. Bad combination. Great fun)
  4. Argin (T&T Lion-man warrior. The first character that I really got into character developement with)
  5. Robert Anderson, AKA “the Ronin formerly known as Sings-New-Songs“, AKA “Face,” AKA P’ya’ray, Bastard of Pseulak, eventually AKA P’ya’Ray the Singer of Impossible Truths. (WtA Rockstar, ex-Fianna Galliard Ronin turned BSD elder… and he maintained the cover… PC that retired and eventually returned as an NPC. Rob’s the Garou that out-Nuwisha’d the Nuwisha, embodied his patron the Urge Wyrm of Lies and ultimately tricked/persuaded a group of desperate Garou and Fera to help him destroy the universe and ended up as a powerful entropic Incarna in Universe 2.0)
  6. Malcolm Lockheed, (modified Cyberpunk setting character. Cyborg scum-hunter coerced into being an agent, who naturally went rogue at the first real opportunity)
  7. Franklin Thurgood Helseher, PhD, PRP. AKA Hammurabi Moses Cromwell Bani Quaesitor, initiate exemptus ars Mentis, initiate exemptus ars Virium, Bringer of the Torch, Final Councillor of Forces. (yikes, what a name/title!) (MtA, Hermetic Mage. Professional parliamentarian, professor of law and mathematics, general obsessive scholar and math-mage. Obsessive, grouchy old pymanderphile idealistic advocate of the Ascension War without much magical power but impressive acumen and the heart of a lion. He ended up claiming the seat of the Councillor of Forces in the last meeting of the Council of Nine in the ruins of Doissetep in the runup to Ascension itself.)
  8. Gowron “Flamin’ Death!” Ironskull (ADnD2 ‘Realms dwarf combat engineer Fighter, alchemist and expert in primitive demolitions, especially incendiary goodness. Liked fire way, way too much)
  9. Gretchen Kobold (WFRP, later Capes fantasy. Female half-hobgoblin bounty hunter and scout with a serious attitude problem)
  10. Lis’Kandar (Earthdawn swashbuckling T’skrang nethermancer and duellist.)
  11. Krissy (Kristen) Annabelle Lee, (WtA mousy little BSD Ronin Theurge and walking spirit nexus. A character with multiple versions. I’ll use the post-New Bremen one rather than the NB Fianna one since the BSD Ronin-turned-Fianna… well her story’s just incredibly messy.)
  12. “West” Uhlrik Graz’zt. (PaxImp Homo Sapiens Variatus slave-bodyguard to a Rogue Trader. Latent Psyker. A highly divergent iteration of the Uhlrik archetype set in the 40K universe. I’d like to play him a lot more, though overall at this point he’s definitely a supporting cast member in the Pax Imperialis storylines.)

And now, the questions.

1) Who would make a better college professor: 6, or 11?
Umm… they’re two of the least-qualified characters on that list. Neither? Bah, I’ll just say Malcolm.  #7, on the other hand.. he was a college professor… 2) Do you think 2 is hot? How hot?

Too hot for his own good. Ask his packmates. Right, chrissiez?

3) 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
West sends Gowron to deliver an unmarked parcel on Baron Herriffydd’s behalf to a mysterious individual staying at a hotel half a kilometer from the spaceport. Gowron succeeds, but leaves the hotel a pile of burning rubble behind him. The concierge was patronizing and rude, you see. 4) What is, or would be, 9’s favourite book?

Eeergh. She’s not much of a reader or highbrow, though she is literate. Were she modern rather than bound to the Renaissance, she’d dig something like Gate of Ivrel. It’s short, a fast read, is about outcasts, has a strong almost-human female character that bosses human boys around, and nobody in it (other than Vanye, even though he considers himself dishonorable) is to be trusted. 5) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?

Axe swear it to Malcolm. Not only could Malcolm totally kick Axe’s butt, but he’s a hardened longtime manhunter. Axe’s a pretty college-age punker boy. 6) For some reason, 5 is looking for a room-mate. Should they share a studio apartment with 9, or 10?

Rob? Oh, he’d rather room with Gretchen, in a heartbeat. He’s into freaky hot chicks. 7) 2, 7, and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?

Axe, Frank and West? Wow.. that’d be bad. They eat at Spago, The Belvedere or The Palms because Frank’s paying. Axe and Frank spend the whole time arguing about politics, given that they’re pretty much diametrically opposed and neither is willing to give up the last word. Frank talks circles around Axe though, because he’s smarter and actually knows what he’s talking about. Frank loathes disrespectful punk kids like Axe, and Axe also hates stuffy old men. Total personality clash. West sits to the side mostly silent since it isn’t his place to interrupt the humans and he doesn’t really feel comfortable with the language anyway, but he scarfs down more food than the other two put together. Once or twice he speaks up in short sentences when they pause to breathe and shocks both of them by actually having a good point. 8) 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?

The duel itself is extraordinarily flashy, dramatic and full of special effects and trickery on the account of both Broughan and Lis’Kandar, with a continual stream of witty banter back and forth. Eventually, Lis’Kandar’s superior swordsmanship and dark sorceries defeat Broughan’s tricksy ways, and he gallantly grants the gnome mercy on account of the little guy’s irrepressible pluck and clever madness. 9) If 1 stole 8’s most precious possession, how would they get it back?

Gowron would try to bust in the front doors, torch the building and rush through the flames to retrieve it, secure in his immunity to fire. But it wouldn’t work. Uhlrik’d totally mop the floor with him and then put out the fire with frostflame, then go back to his refreshing beverage. He’s not only smarter and faster but he’s infinitely badder than the dwarf arsonist. 10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.

Judgment Day. 11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?

A Dimensional portal. They’re both hulking, fantasy-based bestial warriors with big phallic symbolsweapons and a keen sense of justice. All that’s missing is being on the same world. It’d be like He-Man joins forces with Sir Launcelot to beat up on Skeletor. 12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?

Frank can be a very difficult guy to get along with, and he writes people off quickly, plus he’s got little patience for people younger and/or less educated than himself, but he also respects intelligence, wit and most of all principle. It’d start out rocky but we’d get along in the end. We have similar ideals and morals, which would help a lot. Once Frank notices that somebody’s actually worth their oxygen, he becomes much more congenial.

13) If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?

Hmmmm… given his brilliant lack of common sense, it’d have to be something physically far away from me. Gum up the works at the national conventions of both major American political parties? 14) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?

This is clearly more of a fanfiction/fandom RP meme (two things I dislike), because that’s really a question aimed more at those communities. No. I wouldn’t mind a piece of art or a short story pertaining to Krissy, though. Several people on my  f-list have interacted with Krissy in play, however. 15) If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?

Axe would totally pick Rob over lion-boy. Not only is Rob a fellow frontman and a way better guitarist than Axe, but he’s just cool as heck. Axe would worship him so long as he didn’t know how thoroughly corrupt the guy is… which, given Rob’s cunning, he’d never discover. Argin’s just a big, forthright kitty with a sword… cats and dogs. Seriously. 16) What might 10 shout while charging into battle?

Ill-dressed ruffians!  Have at you!17) If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
Born To Be Wild.

If he were a modern guy, he’d totally be an ex-special forces demolitions expert turned biker… 18) 1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?

Uhlrik, dude. He’s the baddest of them all. The magic mirror will confirm this. 19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?

Ew, that so totally wouldn’t work, no matter what he said, not as if Axe is into guys anyhow… much less anthropomorphic dinosaur guys. These two are both straight as arrows. Lissie would be flattered, though, and his put-down would therefore be relatively gentle. 20) What would 5 most likely be arrested for?

Probably something stupid like disturbing the peace for one of his parties (which would just get him some welcome tabloid attention). There’s no way they’d manage to pin the blame for his multiple murders, conspiracy, kidnapping, terrorism or all-around not-niceness to the doppelganger werewolf. Not like they could hold him even if they arrested him. 21) What is 6’s secret?

His entire identity, for one thing. He’s on the run, under multiple layers of assumed identities and he never had a birth certificate to begin with. 22) If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?

Krissy, because she’d cheat via wolf-transformations and umbral/dimensional shortcuts. Gretchen’s fast, cunning and has a good horse, but getting there the fastest with the mostest, while totally ditching all pursuit… that’s Krissy’s schtick. Plus even if it’s in the material world only, motorbikes (even pieces of crap like Krissy’s bike) are faster than horses. 23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?

Gowron. Frank’d be a total mugger-magnet. An elderly white guy in a tweed jacket with leather elbow patches, plus expensive cufflinks? I don’t think so. 24) 1 (Uhlrik) and 9 (Gretchen) reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4’s (Argin’s) sinister secret organization. 11 (Krissy) volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4 (Argin). Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 (West) in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5 (Rob), they seek out 3 (Broughan), who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?

Steel Against the Pride.

That comes off as a meme that’s really aimed at people that are into fandom play and fan fiction, actually. I kinda feel a little dirty just for taking it. 😉

    Axe would just get in the same trouble again, I’m thinking, though we could try something with that… :P~ I can’t bring him back to the mods though since I killed him off, and to be honest I just don’t want to play in the WW mods at all anymore.

    As for the 40K thing, I know you’re unsure of it and I’m more than willing to help you get your feet wet if you’re willing to stretch a little.
