If you could be an RPG character...
« on: 07 Mar 2005, 19:05 »

What sort of archtype would you be? Like innocent healer, tough as nails fighter, etc, etc.

Me? I'd be a quick, flexible fighter (magic sucks) who used tonfa and basically just ran circles around enemies before beating them repeatedly. Like Riou of Suikoden II. (The main character...and if you haven't played the Suikoden series, ESPECIALLY II, you have to, right now. NOW. Good luck finding a copy, though.)

A quick fighter who uses a sword, similar to Tidus, but using a rapier or something similar.

Since I actually went to the Junior Olympics when I was in High School for Foil Fencing, I figured it would make sense.

I'd be a womanizing, drug-smoking, back-stabbing (literally), wallet-stealing rogue.

Well, I'd like to be.

I'd probably just be a tramp though.

Mostly, the characters I create tend to follow a fairly standard trend- they're usually handy in the thick of a fight, heavily armoured, and come with a repertoire of healing spells/abilities. I tend to play, depending on the game:

D&D-based games - Cleric/fighters (my favourite type), paladin/clerics, druid/rangers (I ALWAYS multi-class). For a change, however, this year I am using a rogue/sorcerer.

Diablo 2: The paladin. Heavy armour, and the "prayer" aura makes him damn near invulnerable if you take the time to get him some decent gear and add planty of skill levels to "prayer". equipping him with "triumphant" weaponry is invaluable, too.

I always play as a human male in his early twenties (much like myself). Generally, strong, analytical and frugal with his words - again like me.

But sad gamer-types everywhere would fawn over a Lulu-esque black mage...with more boobs, and leather.

Actually, hold that thought. After seeing the destruction wrought by people having crushes on video game characters, it'd be a bad idea. I mean...Cosplay. Just...think about that for a second.

I'd probably be a necromancer-type battle mage who weilds either a mystic sword, or a staff.

I'd sacrifice my Moxie for the Mysticality boost and have a little bit of muscle.

Either that or a Pastamancer. Oh yeah, Starch-a-liscious!

black mage.  I'd just sit back, and cast fire3 over and over again.  When I get really pissy, cast gravity, or one of those nifty crushing spells.  my alignment would be chaotic evil.  not regular evil, because I really don't care what the hero does.  I would also try very much to look under white mage's dress.  basicly, black mage from 8-bit theater.

Fallout had prostitutes. That is why the two Fallout games RULE (BOS has been retconned, don't mention it to me, lalalalalalalala). Actually, that has nothing to do with why they rule, but it does add a LOT to the post-apoc atmosphere.

Vampire: Recluse Toreador who tends to be a bit depressed, wears black, likes dead roses, art, and The Cure.

D&D: Recluse Assassin who tends to be a bit depressed, wears black, likes dead roses, art, and The Cure.

RL: Semi Recluse Software Tester who tends to be a bit depressed, wears black, likes dead roses, art, and The Cure.

I play RL like an RPG, but I always fail my Save versus Work. :(

some sort of mana-based mage/thief combination would be interesting, i think.  i have never been too big on the D&D spells-per-day bullshit, always preferred the mana-based spellcasting model.  pair that with a high skills-based character like a thief and i think i could have some fun.  magic-aided stealth would be cool, as would memblurring people who catch me in the act, etc.

also: throwing a knife in the dark using infravision, guiding it with magic to its intended target then retrieving it with telekinesis afterwards as you gently lower the victim's body to the ground silently would be totally boss.

also also: "hmm, lock is too complex for my skill?  dang" ... [fireball]

Oh man, at first I thought you meant from a specific RPG and I was all like "KEFKA!!!"

But to actually answer your question, probably a mage of some sorts. I could hang back and blast things without having to get too close or recieve that much damage. The mages truly are the nerd class of the RPG multi-verse.

Either that or a thief, because thiefs (thieves? What's the corrcet term here?) rock.

D&D: mage. easy. possibly necromancer, if i was in a group with enough people so i wouldn't have to rely on that lame-ass cold hands spell to save my behind until i got to level 10000000 and actually got decent spells.

Mage (better than everything): most recently i was thinking dude with big coat and madddddd (the extra d's give it more emphasis) correspondence, so he could quickly and easily access everything within said coat and possibly various pocket dimensions connected to the coat also. on the other hand, the euthanatoi are way cooler than everything.



i miss rpgs...stupid life.

Man, I'm such a geek for already discussing this with my friends about a million times by now.

I'd be the saucy thief who takes forever to be a party member because I'd keep showing up and stealing all your stuff.

Only when I learn the desperate plight of our heroes do I agree to help, touched by their moral sincerity.

And then at the end I steal all their stuff again.  


Think Yuffie Kisaragi from FF7.  Anyone who hated her was either A)  Jealous and angered by her sheer criminal genius, or B) Didn't use her in their party enough and missed their chance to see her sweet side =( (She was the only character who cried with Aeris died)
