Name 10 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow. List your characters numbered 1 to 10, with the name of the RPG you played them in. Once you've picked your 10 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly. (No peeking until you've picked your characters!)
1. Martina Renth (human unfettered -- Arcana Unearthed)
2. Theadonia Aliston (human wizard -- D&D: Eberron)
3. Nora Tannerlock (halfling bard -- D&D: Eberron)
4. Lily Malone/Ladyhawk (human bird-totem-type-superhero -- Mutants and Masterminds)
5. Morgaine Jones/Psyche (human telepath -- Mutants and Masterminds)
6. Felicity (human swashbuckler -- D&D)
7. Vivian Case (human mechanic -- Space d6)
8. Riona du Monde (human swashbuckler -- D&D)
9. Katrin Delome (human bard -- D&D: Eberron)
10. Erika (halfling bard -- D&D: Shroud of the Ancients one-shot at Dragon*Con)
(Note: This was supposed to be twelve, but I'm relatively new to gaming. I've adjusted accordingly and renumbered 11 and 12.)
Who would make a better Professor? #6 (Felicity) or #1 (Martina)?
Well, Felicity would probably be better at crowd control ("All you little fuckers sit down and shut the hell up!"), but her extreme distractability would work against her when it came to lesson planning and her diva-ness would probably rub the class the wrong way. Martina probably wouldn't have the patience for staying still in a classroom and definitely wouldn't have the patience for dealing with dumbass students. I'll have to say neither. Thea, on the other hand, would make an excellent professor.
Do you think #2 (Thea) is hot?
Those raven tresses and the 14 Charisma would suggest yes, but the short temper and shrillness say no.
#2 (Thea) sends #8 (Riona) on a mission. What is it and does it succeed?
Probably a mission to save the world, or at least a portion of it. Riona would succeed as long as she had some more centered party members to keep her on task.
What is, or would be, #9's (Katrin) favorite book?
I think she'd like The Once and Future King books by T.H. White, though she'd insist that Arthur still wasn't as good a king as King Boranel.
Would it make more sense for #2 (Thea) to swear fealty to #6 (Felicity), or the other way around?
Thea wouldn't be inclined to swear fealty in general, and it's hard to imagine her swearing it to a loudmouthed swashbuckler in particular. But Felicity's a princess, and she doesn't swear fealty to anyone, because she doesn't defer to others, they defer to her! If it came down to a standoff on this issue, Felicity would win.
For some reason #5 (Psyche) is looking for a roommate. Should they share a studio apartment with #9 (Katrin) or #10 (Erika)?
Psyche would probably prefer rooming with Katrin, because Erika's bongos are noisier than a lute.
#2 (Thea), #7 (Vivian), and #3 (Nora) have dinner together. Where do they go and what do they discuss?
They go someplace with very rich, very expensive food (Nora would spot Viv on the bill) and they talk about growing up in really crappy small towns. If they drank too much wine, Thea and Viv might start crying about their fathers never loving them and Nora would spend the rest of the night trying to cheer them up and getting piss-drunk herself because hey, she's dealing with two weepy humans.
#3 (Nora) challenges #10 (Erika) to a duel. What happens?
Since they're both bards, the duel would be musical, and Nora would kick Erika's ass, but afterwards she would give her pointers on improving her performance, because halflings gots to stick together, yo.
If #1 (Martina) stole #8's (Riona) most precious possession, how would they get it back?
She would probably steal it back, and they would have a great swashbuckler game of chasing each other through the city stealing each other's stuff.
Suggest a title for a story in which both #7 (Vivian) and #4 (Ladyhawk) attain what they most desire.
The Meaning of Life at the Machine Shop at the End of the World
What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted #1 (Martina) and #4 (Ladyhawk) to work together?
First I'd need a plot device just to get them in the same type of dimension.
If #7 (Vivian) visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
Just fine. We'd bitch about small towns and then I'd take her around Atlanta and watch her gape at everything in amazement.
If you could command #3 (Nora) to perform any task for you, what would it be?
Teach me how to make everybody like me too!
Does anyone on your friends list resemble #5 (Psyche) (either in appearance or personality)?
I'm not touching who I think is emotionally messed-up as Psyche, but physically, she rather looks like spiritchaser1, though perhaps with shorter hair.
If #2 (Thea) had to choose sides between #4 (Ladyhawk) and #5 (Psyche), who would it be?
Probably Ladyhawk, as she is pure of heart.
What might #10 (Erika) shout while charging into battle?
"I've got bongos and I'm not afraid to use 'em!"
If you chose a song to represent #8 (Riona), what song would it be?
Probably a raucous drinking song, or perhaps "Happily Ever After" by the Brobdingian Bards.
#1 (Martina), #6 (Felicity), and #7 (Vivian) 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?
Felicity, as she would be the only one to loudly declare it hers and Martina and Viv would be too shocked to protest before said pancake was devoured.
What might be a good pick-up line for #2 (Thea) to use on #10 (Erika)?
Before Thea could get it out, Erika would say "I'm not into girls, thanks, and you're too tall anyway." Not that Thea would get it out in the first place, as she was desperately in love with another member of her party and never would have managed to tell him either.
What would #5 (Psyche) most likely be arrested for?
Poking around in other people's minds (though she would insist she was doing it for the greater good).
What is #6's (Felicity) secret?
Felicity has no secrets. Felicity is too loud to keep secrets.
If #8 (Riona) and #9 (Katrin) were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
Riona. She's fleet of foot and she's much stronger than Katrin, which means all her gear doesn't slow her down.
If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of #7 (Vivian) or #8 (Riona)?
No offense to Viv, who can patch you up, patch your spaceship up, and is a crack shot to boot. But Riona's the only one here whose stats got rolled instead of bought, and the Dice Gods were loving me that day. Not only can Riona slice 'em to shreds with her Insightful Strike, she's got the hit points to avoid collapsing before getting us out of there.
#1 (Martina) and #9 (Katrin) reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by #4's (Ladyhawk) sinister secret organization. #6 (Felicity) volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for #4 (Ladyhawk). Meanwhile, #4 (Ladyhawk) has kidnapped #9 (Katrin) in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of # 5 (Psyche), they seek out #3 (Nora), who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?
Smoking All the Crack in the World
