IT'S TROPIN' TIME!
—paraphrased from The Thing
Tropes for the Trope God, Memes for the Meme Throne!
I plan to live forever, of course, but barring that I'd settle for a couple thousand years. Even five hundred would be pretty nice.
— CEO Nwabudike Morgan, MorganLink 3DVision Live Interview, Sid Meier’s Alpha CentauriBalmung is me. I am too lazy to list what pages I have contributed to (mostly because I don't actually remember). I do more fixing of what's there than actual example and trope adding though, so it's not that relevant anyways. That said, I'm a Serial Tweaker. I enjoy the Forum Games and On-Topic Conversations boards and frquent both of them. I am the troper formerly known as Balmung 60. I seem to be incapable of stopping making avatars once I start. If you want one, they're pretty much all up for sharing. Just look here and PM me which one you want, or go to this thread. If anyone was wondering I am a male college student, age 22. I'm on Linux, bitch, I thought you GNU.

Tropes I've launched:
Feats/Special Rules (from the thread for them)
- THEMATIC STRIKE
Each time Balmung chooses to strike with five same-themed avatars (i.e., Fire Emblem or Touhou) he can choose to change the gameplay style for the next turn to reflect that theme.
- Avatar Switch
Whenever Balmung is losing a battle, he can switch to a new avatar with replenished life points. This can be done a maximum of five times.
- Lego Coding
Balmung can break, build and rearrange data freely. Useless in meat space, but godlike on the digital plane.
Heal 1 hit point for each avatar in your gallery
- Summon the horde
Deal five damage for each avatar present in your gallery
- Cute Avatars
Balmung gains a +2 bonus to all checks made to interact with people online, since they're distracted by the cuteness.
- The Power of Rock
Balmung may call upon Sabaton once a day to double the efficiency of any troops on the field.
- Frigid Doom
Whenever Cirno is on the field at the same time as Balmung, Balmung can boost her powers 10x.
THE ABILITY TO MAKE A MILLION AVATARS AT ONCE!
- Juggle State
Once per battle, Balmung can hit more than once in one turn, regardless of the time spent between moves, the second hit will always connect with decreasing accuracy for each attack following it.
- The Avatar of Avatars
For every time that T Vtropes goes bork, Balmung may summon one of his/her avatars to do his/her will. The avatar fades away if it is killed, or after 108 hours have passed.
Because of his ability to get straight to the point, Balmung's attack speeds up once every five turns. However, it can only happen three times within a battle.
- Pow Pow
Twice randomly per battle, Balmung's attack deals double the damage due to his massive amount of willpower points.
- Master of Shapeshifting
Balmung has the ability of completely changing his physical appearance unlimited times per day, which causes Confusion effects on low-level tropers.
- First Person Person
Balmung gets a +2 bonus to all intimidate and diplomacy checks by coming across as passive aggressive.
- This Week's Trope Knight
At any time when not in combat and in range of a town, Balmung may reroll their entire character sheet and store their previous character in the town for later use.
Balmung can use any trope as Martial Arts and Crafts.
- Avatar mob
Balmung can summon a mob of avatars for attack or defence.
- Shared Avatar Network
Balmung gains a +2 bonus to deal with anyone using one of his avatars.
- Share and Share Alike.
The spirit of Sharing works through Balmung. He automatically gains experience when he chooses to share his equipment or other material wealth with others, scaling with the value (either material or sentimental) of the objects gifted. Consult the Feat-induced Experience table for scores.
- Sword of Balmung
When Balmung is in the possession of a sword, add +40 to Strength, Agility, and Luck. I think this one just be really frakking overpowered.
- Hmmph! I didn't vandalize this page because I like you or anything. *blush* Do you get that? — jcruz
- Hi. I am also a 20-year-old male college student. Well... taking a year-long job break for now. Skatepunk

- Hmm, I just noticed you're posting from Omaha. I wonder if you could be anyone I know... -montagohalcyon
