A Tzimisce Straw Feminist who believes that delinquent males must be cured of their masculinity before they can be cured of their delinquence. I expect you can do that with Vicissitude.

Groin Attack doesn't even come close, we're talking a complete forced sex change, probably with the use of Dominate to make the relevant mental changes for good measure. Then the punishment for their crimes begins.

Edit: There is a reason this comes under the would like category. It could go so terribly wrong.

Any nWoD character as a Punk Surfer Dude.

Heh. Obrimos Perfected Adept surfer.

"Whoa."

Random Encounter
Secular humanist cleric.

Seems like it might be good for making the other players go cross-eyed.
...italics.

Isn't that just a philosophical good aligned cleric?

Mehcanically, yeah. Just depends how you play it.

Random Encounter
"Atheist cleric", while either technically inaccurate or inviting of lightning, probably gets the idea across better. Believes in sapients' capacity to do good to the extent that he has magical powers, gets annoyed when people insist he must follow a good. Something like that.

I'm working on a character for Fading Suns that...well, at first it was just a dilettante bored noble (and probably using that as a cover story for spying), but is shaping up into a real Jerk Ass.
  • Boozing, gambling, picking fights, sleeping around, picking fights, dodging duties while worthier nobles fought and died, and eating peas with his knife.
  • Bad enough they're exiled from the court.
  • I'm planning on making them actually kinda charming, when not being a Jerk Ass, and as a quirk of character creation, turned out to be really good at martial arts.
    • In fact...jeez, I don't know whether to think of Cobra Kai or...
  • I figure the idea is to have Character Development to smooth off the rough edges as I adventure. Maybe make it into an actual Obfuscating Stupidity cover story.

Mimiga Vanguard
Been thinking for a while about a Mutants & Masterminds character. Basically, he has two forms, but the more powerful one is a little girl or something similarly embarrassing.

A more mechanical explanation using 2e rules:

It's all about the powerset.

  • I need one thing to effect the transformation, and that's the Morph power at rank 1 with the Metamorph feat. I may use the Linked extra to link that with Shrinking 4, to reduce him to the size of a child.
  • The default form will have a powerset that's targeted toward not dying, like Regeneration (Resurrection 10, Improved Recovery Checks), Enhanced Ability (Constitution), Absorption, Healing (with self-only as a drawback), Protection, Immunity, etcetera.
  • The alternate form is a Reality Warper. The powers that are key, as I noted on the Reality Warper page, are Animate Objects (at +2 points per rank, can control solid objects, water, shadows, images, and air), Create Object, and Transform.
  • M&M gives you 15 power points per power level of the campaign to start with, so it would probably be a good idea to see what the most efficient way to accomplish this reality warping is. Animate [Everything] is 5 points per rank, Create Object is 2, and Transform [Anything] is 6. The duration of each is Sustained, and I want them to be Continuous, so that makes them 6, 3, and 7, for a total of 16 points. I would say that any power only available in a Metamorphed form counts as Limited, only usable half the time, so that drops them back to 5/2/6. That's 13 points for one rank of everything, and another 2 points for a Blast of some kind. One rank in Create Object is probably enough, so if the power level of the campaign is 2 or higher, I can throw in Drain 2 with an additional point per rank for Range. If I could find a suitable way to reduce the cost of everything further, I'd add Duplication and Telekinesis... and boost my power ranges to Perception...

Walking the path of heaven, ruling over all...
I... Actually have this really stupid idea for a nWoD character. Y'see, I was flipping through Slasher, and I got to the part about Legends. A Legend Slasher gets their powers from urban legends, right? And when you get down to it, urban legends are just another form of meme. Which leads me to my idea for a Legend Slasher... The Goof.

A serial child slayer who only shows up during dark, stormy nights at the homes of children who have been left alone for the night by their parents, this corpulent man wearing a Goofy mask can kill anything he comes across with a belt as long as he screams "It's Goofy Time!" right before he does it. However, his strength can lead to his weakness: if his intended victim responds by shouting "No, dad, no!" he will be forced to leave them alone... Until next time.

...You can all begin stoning me anytime now. >.>

So that's what this does
... and there I thought when you said memes you were going to be a character who would never give you up.

Walking the path of heaven, ruling over all...
They say that if seven days pass after you've been Rick Rolled and you haven't passed it on to someone else, Rick Astley shows up at your door late at night and guts you with a tuna.

...On a similar yet slightly more serious note, there was also the idea of the "Chain Letter Chopper", who'd show up at your door and viciously butcher you if you didn't pass a chain letter onto at least five other people.

...This just goes to show why it's probably not a good idea to let me anywhere near the World of Darkness, no matter how much I'd actually like to play it. The only gameline I'm likely to play straight is Promethean, and that's because of Author Appeal. Kind of.

... Why is the Chain Letter Chopper a bad thing? Sounds like a great idea!

Makes me wonder if it's possible to generate a self-sustaining closed pattern with a group of penpals. Make it a signature when talking to each other...of course, that just means you'll attach the sig to the wrong mail one day...

Must Keep The Web Intact
Well, i'd like to play Dark Heresy. I would be an imperial priest coming from a hiveworld who spent his youth trying to convert the humans of a feral world in vain. He managed to learn their language and make them worship a giant two-headed eagle , but that's about it.

I had a back-up character for Pathfinder that I never got to play...here she is:

Idanys Nightfallen, Half Elf Bard Level 6, Shadow Dancer Level 4 Stats at level 10: 16 STR, 20 DEX, 18 CON, 17 INT, 15 WIS, 20 CHA

—- When I thought of her, I first imagined a sweet girl, a traveling Bard who specialized in dancing and was giggles and sunshine...until nightfall. The day job ends, and the night job begins as the Laughing Luna, a thief and assassin named for the mask she wears with a creepy smile and a disturbing cackle often uttered when the night's mission is fulfilled. When she wakes up, Idanys has no memory of the previous night's escapades, as she is being controlled by (ooo, big shocker here) a mysterious organization. I haven't thought most of the details through, so I apologize for whatever sucks in this paragraph.

WHAT HAS SCIENCE WROUGHT
I'd like to play a Hydra with Hollywood MPD. The heads have a 50/50 vote split on which class to pursue so half his levels are in Monk, the other half in Sorcerer. They constantly bicker.
...and that's terrible.
I'm trying to figure out how to build a Pathfinder character who uses the improvised weapon and two-weapon fighting feats to use two chickens stuffed over his fists as weapons. Right now I'm thinking either a human fighter for the large amount of bonus feats, or a human ranger for the two-handed fighting feats and the possibility of having a pet chicken to go along with the theme.

He'd have the personality of a generic hot-blooded shounen protagonist, and be chaotic stupidgood.

I started putting together the Adam Jensen expy. 9 points into Cyberware - he can punch through the walls all right now. 272 points spent altogether (cash, attributes and combat skills).

I'd like to play more tabletop games full-stop, but I have a few character ideas for all the rulebooks I have acquired.

  • Pathfinder:
    • Alchemist. Full stop. “WAKE UP! TIME FOR SCIENCE!”
      • I guess a monk or a ranger would also be fun, as would a sorcerer.
    • A Dwarf Feral-totem barbarian, The last survivor of a Dwarf fortress that pulled a Boat-Murdered, now gone completely feral. Hunts bears bare-handed.
      • I guess he could also be a Shifter Ranger for more natural-weapon fun.
    • A fighter/bard who dresses in a Commissar Cap and uses inspire courage by yelling and ranting at the top of his lungs. Basically, the bastard offspring of a WH 40 K Commissar and The Soldier from TF 2
    • a Gnostic Mystic Theruge who seeks to dispose of the gods as he thinks they are all Good-for-nothing useless layabouts who saddle honest mortals like himself with problems they are too lazy to fix. Wears a hat that is a combination Robe and Wizard Hat and a Bishop’s hat.
    • Dual-crossbow-wielding Goblin ranger who has a Goblin-Dog companion. They fight crime.
    • Undead cleric of Magic/law and runes. Channels negative energy and is bacilly the Antitheisis of what a cleric is supposed to do.

  • Genius: the Transgression:
    • Alex mercer, only entirely self-made by the use of excessive amounts of implanted wonders.
    • A Stig expy. Dress in black, and ride a motorcycle capable of mach 2. Is a Clockwork mane that acceded to genius-hood when his previous master was slain. Uses a combination lighting-rod and Laser Sword.

  • and finally, mutants and masterminds.
    • A scientist/giant robot pair where the scientist stays back at base and build objects to use against the threat of the weak using his absurdly-high Quickness power, while his robot sidekick fights the threat of the week.
    • A sapient Kill Sat /spaceship that hangs in orbit above the planet, lending help with well timed teleports and Blasts.
    • One Man Army: a walking pun. Has both the ability to duplicate himself. utilizes a machine-gun that duplicate with him so that he can five-rounds rapid anything he wants.
    • A Lovecraft-style cultist who uses loads of really cheap powers with potentially-self destructive disadvantages. Like the ability to summon C’thulho, who starts out as hostile. Or to teleport by traveling though the warp, resulting in localized confusion. Or the Force-field that has a small chance of exploding with each use. Or simply people-kinesis: allowing him to throw mooks at other mooks as weapons.

On a related note, I would also like to fight a boss who had THIS as his theme-song.

((BANANAS.))

3.5

  • A dwarven Bard who uses a war-drum as his instrument.

Burning Wheel

  • Holy warrior of a feminist cult.

  • A Barber pirate.

  • A coy male seamstress with a scornful tailor mentor.

I rather fancy trying something a little bit weird in Dresden Files. Ideas include someone with a magic sword- otherwise straight mortal, not even using Faith- of some kind. A powerful magic sword that'sbeen passed down his family, and (unlike the Swords of the Cross) can be used just s easily for evil ends as for good...
