I want to make a character with you guys.Much like the 'create a race' threads, suggest an item after it is prompted. The first person to beat, say, 80 on a 1d00 in the +dice function gets used.Lets see what wacky flexibility we can come up with.First: Genre?-Scifi?-Fantasy?-Horror?-Other?
rolled 49 = 49Victorian science fiction
rolled 66 = 66Ironic Cyberpunk
rolled 25 = 25Furry fantasy
rolled 31, 68, 58, 29, 51, 29, 71, 14, 29, 18, 31, 50, 100, 92, 46, 13, 2, 84, 31, 8, 26, 56, 26, 21, 5 = 989Steampunk!
rolled 73 = 73cyberguido
rolled 6 = 6Sci-fi/space opera
rolled 4 = 4Cyberguido sounds hilarious.

rolled 52 = 52Another for cyberguido.
rolled 82 = 82Dystopian transhumanism
>>12373739sad robots it is!
>>12373739Ding! Dystopian transhumanism!>A setting wherein the protagonist(s) becomes a transcendent human being through heavy use of cybernetic augmentation, neural interfacing and physical alteration.Next up, basic concepts:-Man/woman?-old/young?-Place of origin/current residence?Basic bones stuff here, just those three points to consider.Go!
rolled 44 = 44>>12373768Old guy from Mars
rolled 81 = 81OldManFrom India, now in Orbital Colony
rolled 33 = 33>>12373768man/young/jersey shore.we will have our cyberguido yet!
>>12373776Holy shit, in two!So we have an old indian man, now living on an orbiting colony.Next: Setting basicsHow advanced? TL8 (modern day, cyborgs are just emerging) TL9 (More advanced times, more reasonable science, think within a 200 year timeframe)TL10 (fancy science time, closer to say, transmetropolitan)Further?
rolled 60 = 60>>12373802TL10
rolled 39 = 39>>12373802TL11because we want this character to go all the way to 11.
rolled 66 = 66>>12373818fuck that shit. reroll.
TL1All technology is forgotten, they know not how to work the station. It's mmostly automated anyway
rolled 55 = 55>>12373832Agreed
rolled 73 = 73TL10. Transmetropolitan was the shit.
rolled 31 = 31>>12373832DERP
rolled 63 = 63no, our TL must be maximum! reroll TL11, for the sake of having to figure out what that implies.
rolled 82 = 82TL11 sounds the awesomest.
rolled 76 = 76I demand TL3, because it's funnier that way.
>>12373856OHSHI-!From the far reaches of time, we yearn to shed our physical form and become one with the UNIVERRRRRSE!TL11! Very advanced, scientifically. Nano machines exist, as well as free energy from micro generators! Then again, this is dystopia!Why is our world dystopian?-War?-Disparity?-Lulz?
rolled 97 = 97>>12373874lulz. always lulz
rolled 29 = 29>>12373874Loss of humanity. Transhumans gradually lose the touch with their human roots. Body forms soul and all.
>>12373883fuck yes, first roll!
rolled 50 = 50>>12373883OBJECTION! Not this. Definitely not this.
>>12373883Oh, god it's Paranoia with nanotech!
>>12373901fuck you, dystopia for the lulz is the best setting ever!"We thought it would be funny, so we put society in ruins."
>>12373874Oh god.Okay, so the universe just sucks. Good to know.Back to the player.Now that we know what context to build him in, lets go with personality. What are the three major NEGATIVE points to the mans personality?What are the three major POSITIVE points to his personality?
>>12373874Rule of technocracy makes normal people worthless to the regime
rolled 68 = 68>>12373883I roll to overrule this. Let's have >>12373887 instead.
rolled 70 = 70>>12373915Negative: Short attention span

rolled 32 = 32Negative: Paranoic
rolled 79 = 79Negative: Actually looks old. The transhuman future is full of perpetual, apparent 20-year-olds.
>>12374005damn, knew it couldn't last.

rolled 6 = 6>>12374026EXOTIC GENITALIA!Visibly so.
rolled 81 = 81>>12374026negative: hates puppies. we must have a walking paradox for a character.
rolled 14 = 14>>12374034>>12374041fuck you that would have been hysterical.
>>12374034So as not to create a logical paradox, our old insian man has ANOTHER annoying habit: Constantly tunelessly humming old indian pop songs. Ironically, I have a coworker who does this. I can attest to his -1 penalty to reaction rolls.So, an old indian man, in a dytopian TL11 transhumanist space station. He enjoys puppies, has charisma, and he likespuppies. He unfortunately hums to himself alot, is a bit crotchety about the 'good old days', and is a lech.NEXT Advantages!What kind of transhuman is this guy? Cyborg? Nanite cloud? Net-decker?
>>12374068He's an uplifted parakeet.
rolled 29 = 29>>12374068Life-extension biomods and one really clunk, behind-the-times cyberleg. He makes up different stories, which he may actually believe, about how he got it.

rolled 32 = 32he's made of lasers!
rolled 95 = 95>>12374068Foglet.
>>12374090Winner! Full braincase replanting!He's an old indin man in an ageless robot body! Obviously, the only organs left that are original are his wrinkly ass skin and wang. Also, his brain.What is the indian man's motivation? What does he DO? Why does he DO it? Who does he DO EET to?
rolled 73 = 73>>12374104he's a professional rapist. he does it to underage school girls, purely to satisfy his unnatural carnal desires.
rolled 75 = 75>>12374104He was stranded on the orbital base some years ago and wants to get back to earth to cash in his family's claim on a valuable property -- so he needs to raise money to book passage to India.
rolled 36 = 36>>12374104He is an crime fighting vigilante with guns hidden in his arms. He fights them because he is bored. He fights crime bosses, primarily those who dislike indian pop music.When he is in action, he constantly hums the tunes, this is especially creepy when he is out of sight.
rolled 15 = 15>>12374104he's a lazer eater in a local carnival freak show. he does it to get by, pay the bills, for anyone who will pay to see.
rolled 37 = 37>>12374121Seconding.
rolled 6 = 6His robotics are old and wearing out! He needs to replace them, but for some reason they're hard to get a hold of on Orbital-1!
rolled 48 = 48He is on quest to bring down the system, so India can rise up again!
rolled 39 = 39>>12374129reroll for eating lasers
rolled 50 = 50>>12374120This.
rolled 11 = 11He tries to find a perfect bride for his son
rolled 38 = 38He's gone INSANE with senile dementia and cyberpsychosis and SPACE MADNESS. His goals are constantly changing, along with his memories.

rolled 44 = 44junk collector, he builds little sexbots from scraps and he likes his job
rolled 50 = 50He's a movie producer, looking to create the ultimate Bollywood film -- in space.
+dice ?He lives in hope of becoming post-human and meeting his dead daughters. This pursuit involves a lot of hashish, but he talks with physicists and Xenopsychologists to further his understanding of an immaterial world.
rolled 75 = 75>>12374148come on, transhumanst outsourcing god dammit!
rolled 2 = 2>>12374104He usually walks around the more shady areas of the station, constantly humming the indian pop music.When someone tries to make him stop using violence, he kills them.He does this because he has to much free time on his hands.He do it to people no one will miss.

rolled 78 = 78he's the choreographer for the interstellar equivalent of bollywood. he works for the love of indian cinema, teaching the rising stars of the new generation.
>>12374165A winner!Fucking finally!SO, as a presidential candidate, he is the local governor of his space station and the most likely target for both pro and anti cyborg lobbyists. After all, humanity is becoming aminority and FUCK EVERYTHING for teh lulz, remember?So, skill-wise:Is this man a talented politician or a hack getting by on other abilities?Silver tongued or just in the right place at the right time?
rolled 46 = 46>>12374178hack running on charisma
rolled 54 = 54>>12374178He has a private army and a fleet of warships at his command, being the head of a mega-corporation.He has a knack for convincing people, usually with the subtle threat of horribly dieing if they prove hard to convince.
rolled 82 = 82He's very talented in dystopian politics - he killed, bribed or dismantled most of his opponents.
>>12374178dice+1d100He isn't any good at politics, per se, but he is an expert at using psychology and mass psychology to move the masses towards his goals. This garners him a lot of support for seeming honest, but many enemies who despise him and his lack of visible goals.
>>12374193Ah ha ha! A vicious dirty man!So a skilled diplomat, persuader, fast talker.He has a complement of more direct interaction skills as well: Brawling, wrestling and guns(pistol). Escape and stealth are also powerful dealing tools.Games-mechanically:High DX and HT for speedy and stealthy?Brawny? Smart? Describe how this underhanded man bases his talents.>blood whimatuAlso, it seems captcha wants to give him his title already.
rolled 42 = 42>>12374204

>>12374229An honorable mention and addition. He shall mook it up, and shall have hidden gun arms.Continue!For ease of suggestion, rank these in order of BEST to WORST:ST, DX, HT, IQ, WIL, PER
rolled 54 = 54IQ, WIL, PER, ST, HT, DX
rolled 5 = 5>>12374259Best:ST, PER,DX, HT, WIL, Worst: IQ

>>12374282By way of>>12374306rerolling!Best:ST,PER,DX,HT,WIL,Worst: IQOur indina man is a mechanically enhanced BEAST. Much like a mighty bengal tiger, he has enhanced strength and perception. His mind has suffered in the transformation.Now finally, just to make the points work a bit better for us here, what would be his MAJOR flaw?-Political enemies?-A crippling flaw in his body's mechanics?-perhaps just pure unluckiness?
rolled 33 = 33>>12374342his mechanically enhanced strength DESTROYS any sexual partner the lecherous man routinely seduces, leading to a series of cover-ups and dead hookers.
rolled 70 = 70>>12374342He has enemies high up in the political circles, as well as some in the military.This means he must constantly be on guard.
rolled 87 = 87>>12374342Political enemies, who make much of the fact that he is an unstable mechanical beast!
rolled 93 = 93He doesn't give a shit about his own safety, thinking he can handle anything
rolled 41 = 41>>12374342Ambition, often a fatal flaw for politicians in the dystopian future
>>12374362A narrow victory for POLITICAL ENEMIES!>Enemy(major, group, youre fucked)
Here we go!
Imma go get some lunch. I'll be back in a bit.
>>12374399>retained wangi lol'd, mostly because i've never played GURPS and imagined that that was a perk printed in some book somewhere.
>>12374432I'd be a little surprised...
>>12374486Perks and quirks are advantages and disadvantages that don't quite work out to 'full cost'. Liking smoking, but not being an addicted smoker is a quirk. Having an awesome hairstyle that is only relevant to social situations once in a blue moon? That's a perk. I often use them as 'minor personality traits' to help me flesh out motivations and pathos for characters I play.
>>12374525OH SHIT YES! THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!
>>12374674Now I am imagining him shooting people while he constantly sings/hums this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bAN7Ts0xBo
