What would Rucks say about your character?
>Ain't nothing good that can come of bottlin' up your emotions.>Plenty worse to come of making them into a pet
>>51209952>Kid spent all his life climbin' up that ladder>Tryin' to find some solid ground to put under his boots>Ended up real high, couldn't even see where he come from>...>Didn't care much for the titles and the power>Hadn't put a lot a' thought into it>...>Best way to find solid ground?>...>Well, you gotta jump
>>51209952>Man's gotta have something to believe in>But when that's all he's got, something gets twisted up>Kid better he careful, history repeats itself.
>Some folk build walls 'round themselves>Him? He built a damn castle.>Too much hurt waitin' outside>Someone like you, maybe he'll open up those gates>Don't take the hurt in with you, though
>>51209952>Whats a man to do when his whole world gets shattered?>How's someone supposed to cope when he finds out that his whole life was a lie, a joke?>You go after who'ever told you the truth.
>She weren't much fer' thinkin', 'sides the notion that she might well be the biggest fool of them all.>Truth be told, she might not be wrong on that account.>But sometimes, a thick skull and whole lotta guts will do the job.>If you're gonna be dumb, you best be tough.>And boy, was she tough.
What would Ruckus say about your character?
>Anytime the poor Kid gets touched she goes into pieces.>She doesn't say why and claims that she's fine.>You should see the scars left by the obese "gentleman" which took her for a morsel. >And I'm not just talking food.>Doubt even Pyth can give her the courage to fight any longer than she has too.A PC who ran into Y'Golonac, the Defiler
>>51210827Nice things because im playing a pure breed genetically engineered german ubermensch in a world war 2 with a touch of sci-fi campaign
>Most people don't take the Kid seriously, the boy seems like a clown who's survived on luck and maybe a bit of pluck.>But I pity the poor bastard who threatens his friends, they're in for a world of hurt.
>Some men are born to fight, some aren't.>That's just the way it is.>'Course, no one told him soon enough.>And there's only so many times you can break your bones before they start gettin' tougher than what broke 'em.
>>51209952>Like a wind-up dancer with a wistful tune>Pretty to look at, but makin' the same circles, again and again
>Kid had a real knack for getting himself shot in the leg.
>Kid's always been a bit to trustfull, or maybe just a little prideful.>Either way, just existing could be a good enough reason to be his friend, or even moreso.>For being an only child, he had the most siblings I've ever seen.>He's not much for changing his mind about family though.>Well, when you live to fight the mountain, having a little companionship is a rare luxury.
>>51209952>Man ain't gotta home these days, but he has got the kind of tongue that gets strangers to open doors, and the eyes to use it.>Big 'ol storm tore his down as a kid. Figured, instead of working all his days to get back his old life, he might as well make a new one. Has a talent for it, too, but he never keeps 'em long.>He had a sister once, too. But he ain't so convinced she's gone.>He's got a little critter that followed his runnin' off. One of those mystic, delicate types. Not a common sight 'round his parts, and he figured it was too much of an unlikely coincidence.>Now he ain't so sure he's just reading faces anymore, or just pulling card tricks. What's a sceptic to do when he starts putting faith in fate and voodoo?>The grandest tournament in the land is starting, and his name's on the contestant list. He knows it ain't his calling, so why's he there? 'Cause this year, they fight for more money than honour, or so he tells himself. He knows there's easier ways to wealth, with all his fellow scoundrels. Maybe it just gives him a real reason never to stay in town too long. Maybe it's another "coincidence".
This is a quality thread.
>The man had a good heart, but he liked danger a little too much.>Spent more time destroyin' than buildin'. >I just hope he ain't buildin' his own mausoleum.
>Kid was a bit eccentric, nearly driving away those that were left.>But the results he got...well, a mixed bag has it's good parts.>And the more that's in the bag, more likely you'll pull out a good one.
>>51211006>>51210530>>51210425Them's some good ones.
>Coming from the wilds, we were all a bit surprised he was helping the kid.>He was no exception.>Unfortunately, he wasn't helping out of the goodness of his heart.>It started out with small things, a few missing bolts, a loose knot, things you'd chop up for sloppiness.>But even a frog couldn't be sloppy enough to blow up the food supply.>Twice.>Seems he was a bit on the weird side, said he could talk to some greater being.>Though, if you saw those eyes, not much you could do to doubt.
>Odd fella, that one. Says he's readin' all them books to try and help his pals.>Says that ya gotta fight fire with fire, or some such thing, and his pals seem to believe him.>Me, though? I ain't too sure. Fella gets an odd look in his eye when the chips are down and them spells of his start flying. Looks like he enjoys seeing people runnin' and screamin', all 'cause he told 'em to.>I ain't one for judgin', but somethin' about that fella just don't seem right.
>Bein' a big shot ain't all it's cracked up to be.>This one wasn't a bad egg, but he thought he deserved the world.>Turns out, the world ain't too keen on havin' one man callin' the shots. And just one man ain't gonna have an easy time of changin' any minds.>But this big shot, well, I'm not sure what about him is sharper. His sense of right and wrong, or his smarts.>When you have both in equal measure, it's only a matter of time before one of them slips, and on this slope, it's real slippery.>Bein' a big shot ain't all it's cracked up to be.>Mostly because it's a long way to the bottom, and a real quick trip there.
>>51209952>She likes to help people put the broken pieces back together, mend what shook them apart.>Hope they never figure out she's the one who broke 'em to begin with.
> Little bird lost his flock long time ago.> Stick around if you feel like being charitable.> Who knows? He may save your life someday.
>Ain't much you can do with just a large drum and a bag full teath.>But that ain't going to stop the kid.
>Seems a nice enough fella... for a war worshiping, lightning breathing lizard.>Don't reckon they ever started a war, but didn't ever stop one neither.>Says all the fighting makes heroes out of even ordinary folks. Ain't that heroic being dead...
>Kid spent his whole life hiding from fate>But the thing is, if fate don't find you, something worse will
>Even after the collapse, he still only wanted to document the wilds.>I guess when you spend all your life away from home, you have a lot of questions.>Sometimes though, you're answers aren't what you want from them.
>Says he hears god, but he knows he's lyin'.>Spent so long looking for the truth, he thought he'd make it himself.>You spend so long tryin' to do right by folks, you might lose yourself.
>His problem wasn't a physical one, it was political>But I guess when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail>Well at least the kid brought the biggest hammer in the land
>>51209952>Here's a man trying to find the person he once was>But what happens if he don't like him?
>kids just trying to survive>but life has another thing up it's sleeve
>>51209952>The tin man might have a frightenin' look to him, but looks can be misleadin'.>He's a peaceable sort, patient and kind, but like a ragin' storm when roused.
>Kid's simple>Real simple>Just go along with his delusion, and he'll hit what point too>And a few things you don't
>>51209952>Ah. Weird Kid. Doesn't talk much.>he knows the Woods and Mountains. Quiet the Frontierman-type.>somehow ended up with these weird twins. >Two cute Girls who got a talent for getting into trouble.>And a big guy with a sword. Full of himself.>they hunt some real mean old baddy across the country.>Well, unless the twins got them in another mess again.
>>51209952I dunno, probably something overrated and cliche, just like the entireity of the game he's from
>A damn shame really - fought a war to get home, fought real hard. Did some bad things. Had to become a warrior to survive >The thing about men of war though - home doesn't bring the same peace it used to>At least he was kind enough to leave his riches behind when he walked out that door>I'm sure his wife and daughter don't see it that way, though
>>51212415Cool story, bro. You gonna actually contribute, or just be a contrarian fagot who whines like a spoiled toddler?
>>51212415>Now, Anon wasn't the type to call himself a fisherman. Was just a hobby, to him. But if there was one thing he knew, well, he knew how to cast a line.>Only problem was, a hook without bait would be about as aimless and driftin' as he was.
>>51212556excellent form, top marks
>>51212708who else but a nigger could possibly know that, anon?
>>51212415>Kid just raged a bit
>When he was the bottom floor, the penthouse sure looked pretty.>Once he got up that building, and got to the very top, though... 'Stopped being so bright.>What's it look like? Well... There's a lot of bodies, for starters...
>Some folks fight to protect somethin', some folks fight to forget somethin'.>The Kid, he fights because it's all he wants to know.
>he looks at the paladin>he ain't him>he does what he won't>touches his scar big ol' skeleton hurt him>sword ain't what hurts the most>prays to torag asks for fire ask to become steel>what matters is what you make of good steel

>>51214321>>51211006>A mewling wretch risen above its station. Still, I am impressed by the sheer tenacity it exhibits. If only it were enough. bonus points if anyone can throw out a guess as to what this character is.
>>51214875I'm going to have to go with some sort of tank, either a Barbarian or Fighter. Maybe Bear Totem or Zealot Barbarian or Battlemaster Fighter.Of course I could be completely off and you're a paladin but from the Mewling Wretch line and taking damage you give off the idea of a more individual person then a man of god.
>>51214321>In boundless rage he finds boundless strength, but strength alone cannot stave off the madness that is to come
>>51214321>Why is this simpleton calling me dad?
>>51214321>A lowly merchant, seeking to buy nobility. In gold... and in blood.
>>51209952>And then the kid did something useful with his life.>...>Nah I'm just kidding with you.
>>51214321>She clings to optimism and hope in the face of everlasting darkness. Who can dare call her sane?
>>51209952>Kid don't know much more than violence anymore>It's a sad story>Probably ain't got a happy ending either>Maybe if he traded in that sword for somethin' with a bit more meaning to it?>...>Nah. Kid likes that he ain't alright.
>>51209952>Kid spent his whole life building>Too bad for him breaking's easier>Now to put it all back together, all he can do is keep breaking>Ain't that a laugh
>>51214321A fearful, wretched thing, better for talking than fighting. And yet, there is a glint of steel in his eye.
>>51215130you're actually correct on that! Barbarian was the class, going with a homebrew Barfighter path. The mewling wretch bit was more a reference to backstory and race, which is tiny sickly kobold.No one ever told him that he COULDN'T be a barbarian. So he was damn well going to be one, strength penalties or no.
>>51209952>This is one of those fellas who could have had it all.>You know the type. He had a wife and kids on the way, a reason to live and everything.>Problem was that he got sold out by a woman what was supposed to be on his side.>She never got a look at his face while she was doing the betraying, though.>...>Would it have changed her mind?>I don't know- but it would have changed his life.>You know how they call the lash on a ship 'captain's daughter'?>Well, he had three daughters.>Now he has three whips and the will to use them.>I hope she remembers, because he does.
>She been "thinkin' of something quick" all her life.>Hasn't really stop to take it all in, not even once>Well... She just can't handle all that time in her hand.
>With her.>It was always a three dog night.

>He was a curious one, no doubt about it>Believed in chivalry and the rights of old blood, upheld the code like no other>Knights and nobles gotta look after those beneath 'em after all>But they gotta remember their place, otherwise things it'd get real nasty.
>>51209952>Kid never was good lookin'>But I'm sure he's seen better days
>>51214321>Watch this one closely, sometimes an actor becomes indistinguishable from his role, even to himself.
>>51214321>There was light in his eyes, once. Snuffed out by the horrors of war. There is no method left to his madness. He comes looking for death, and he will find it.
>Kid's got a real fire burning in him. He best mind where the flames start lickin'.>He ain't always seen eye to eye with the big guy. Lucky for him, Gond ain't holding a grudge. Asked him if he could do a better job, then gave him the tools to do it.

>>51209952>>51214321>expecting your campaign to be narrated by Rucks>it's narrated by the Ancestor instead
>>51217646To be honest, The Ancestor makes for a more exciting narrator, if only because he brings that sense of dread that Rucks doesn't
>>51209952>Kid's like a house in a storm; she keeps on learnin' more n' more about who she really is, threatenin' to break her down n' wash her away. Yet she keeps on shorin' herself up, battenin' down the hatches and weatherin' what comes. >I don't know if she can hold out forever, but I sure as hell know she ain't gunna give up 'til the job's done.
>Monster Huntin's a noble profession,>'course, kid's gotta learn the real monsters wear human masks
>>51214321>This one aims to rise to glory and heroism through a zealous search of conflict. Such men often find nothing but a dizzying fall to destitution, suffering and death.
>>51209952>Kid just wouldn't take "I don't know" for an answer>The only answer he found was a robot guided laser to the dome
>>51217941The Narrator from Bastion.
>>51209952>Kid had a song and smile for every occasion.>Sharp of wit, and even sharper of tongue.>...>Learnt' the hard way, not all problems can be solved with poetry and children's tales these days.>But when you luck is down and the days just keeps getting darker.>...>Maybe a little music ain't that bad.
>>51214321>The fool spends his life spinning a web of lies. But one false step, and he'll find he's just been spinning the noose around his neck.

> Kid's spent a long while learning about the world.> It's what he ain't found books on that'll make his life more interestin'.
>>51218331Solid.Gotta have those beats in between lines to properly emphasise the delivery.
>Now that's a new one. A metal man with a head full of hate and hands full of knives. Not even the Mancers would've thought to build a thing like that.
>>51209952>Kid's got a heart full justice, but was born into a family of lies.>Sometimes loyalty requires a betrayal, but a betrayal hurts more than just the betrayed.>When the Devil came a knockin' the Kid just knocked back.>Now the Kid's got nothing but a sword and old wounds, wanderin' the land searchin' for something to make things right.
>High and Mighty's what they use to call her.>Noble-born.>Soft but thick skinned, never said a word till she caked her hands with red.>Girl jumped off a cliff to nab one fella on the face.>Never thought she'd take her title seriously.

>>51209952>Kid's never really felt like he belonged here. Maybe he doesn't, but what can you do? He has no home to return to. At least...no home he'd want to go to. And when his eyes lit up, seeing our little shelter, it seemed like he'd finally found his home away from home.>>51214321>Never before have i seen such power, such potential...and it is all wasted. Wasted in that feeble mockery of a body. When i told him of what he could be, he shouted at me, screaming that it's what he's been running away from. Called me mad, he did. Maybe he's right. But what he told of his home...I almost wanted to give up on my experiments when he told me. I can only hope i never find his parents.
>>51209952>He'd been wishing he could have done something different>Saved his career, his relationship, his old life>But he gave up on that long ago>Up til a living, breathing symbol of what he lost comes stumbling in the door, bad attitude on her face and a gun in her hand>If he were never there for her, is she still his daughter?

Lived like an indentured servant despite being the son of the patriarch>Mostly blames his mother, though.

>>51214321>She doesn't carry her magical light to illuminate the secrets in the shadows. Touched by things that lurk beyond, she hopes that the light makes the darkness fear her as she fears it
>>51209952>When a man's fightin', he's got to trust his brothers.>'Specially when ye'r fightin' what lurks in the dark>But they ain't always the ones with the answers.>An' the ones with the answers ain't willin' to share.>...>Kid's trustin' only his own head these days.>When you dive for answers, make sure you won't turn up a mystery yourself.
>Kid is a walking, talking example of no good deed goes unpunished. Lost more than what many people ever have had to begin with. Don't stop him from trying to help, though. Maybe he forgot how to just give up and let things happen. Or maybe he's scared of stopping, afraid he wouldn't be able to start up again.

He does, his Commander does, his Brothers in arms do.>Damn Shame they can't do much but sit back and watch it.>Be a fool to think you could make a difference in this hell the old world created when it fell.>But the Knight's spent so long playing the fool that maybe he's ready to do just that.
>>51211826no offense, Anon, but for someone who doesn't know anything about your character, this looks like just about the most generic post possible given this prompt
>>51209952>Kid spent so long thinkin" about where he's goin' he might just miss it when he gets there.
>>51214321>A veteran brought back from the bleak void of death, he has learned that the only path to survival is through the gaping maw of mortality.
>>51214321>A Knight foolish enough to believe he can make a difference in a world fallen to chaos, damnation, and indifference. One almost pities this steadfast tin soldier.

>It ain't quite easy, growing up under the expectations of a family legacy>His older brother was always stronger, more determined, while he mostly just has keen eyes and light feat>But that don't mean he'd give up on his duty or family name. Just gotta do it a bit differently is all.>Besides, there are worse things to do, than to become a symbol of fear for those who would hurt the defenseless>So he figured if he was good enough to scare Pyth outta everything, he might as well do it to protect people>And besides, a good ol magic hammer never hurt eitherAnd now I gotta listen to the soundtrack again.
>>51209952>Pretty spunky and gutsy. No problems here, you'd think.>But y'know...>Sometimes the only response to all that grief and misery a hard life throws at you is to just grin and try yer best.>Could explain why they're so amorous too. Loneliness does that to ya.>Maybe that's why those two hit it off so much. Birds of a feather flock together.
>>51214321A depraved brigand who clings to his companions not out of camaraderie, but a forlorn attempt to mimicry the normalcy he see's in those he slaughters.

>Kid was all in with the wrong crowd and tried to fold.>The Kid lost it all and didn't take it too kindly, he fought for a while til all he could do was run.>Now he just wanders, lookin' for something that ain't there.

>>51231213>will only end in despairI feel ya brother~
It's been ages since I played the game last.>>51209952>Kid's not too good with people. Even worse with bein' touched. >Still, even she's gotta make exceptions. Earn their trust, and you've got someone who'd go through hell just to make sure you sleep easy at night.....>Imagine what she'd do if you took the people she loved away.
On a sidenote, in the end of it all did you guys *BASTION SPOILERS* moved on or rewinded time? I guess I'm a pussyfart, because I felt like rewinding time had a small hope of history changing and thus averting calamity.
>>51235344Rewind flat out shows it didn't fix anything in NG+. Moving on is the only option.
>>51236098What if Rucks is a Kid who decided to rewind time?
>>51231327I haven't played through the whole game so I'm not sure if this is an actual quote or not, but hot damn I could hear that.
>>51214321>He had to learn that no kingdom lasts forever. In fact, some end before they've even begun.
>>51236126It's been a common theory for ages, but not one I support.If the Kid is Rucks who not only rewound time, but also travelled way back in time, how come Rucks doesn't know what the Kid is doing in the final level or what happened to him when he started hallucinating from the swamp gas? Rucks should've already lived it.
>That boy ain't right.>Kid needs to learn that some people need killing, and sometimes just by plain ol' bad luck, sometimes you need killing.Seriously. The amount of crit-fails are having some serious thinning effects on the party.
>Some people find happiness in faith>Some find it in battle>He found it in the swarm >Belonging is all he ever wanted>And he'll move heaven and hell to keep that feeling
>folks say the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting different results>I'd join them in calling the kid crazy if it weren't working
>'You can tell a lot about a man from how he treats his parents'>'He might worship 'em; those hollow gods who got to tell their own legends'>'They might be his wallet; fundin' the controlled madness that only youth can bring'>'and maybe, just every once in a while, he wants punch'em 'till they ain't movin'>'I got a feeling the kid had all three on his mind'
>>51235344Set sail. The path was locked in, and since the Bastion can only rewind time, and can't send any sort of message or information back, it's always gonna end the same way. Clinging to the past can only lead to heartache, an infinite loop of tragedy. Change is scary, but you have to embrace it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDflVhOpS4E
Okay, let's see, characters I've run>5e D&D Tiefling Warlock, Criminal Background, straight-up Nyarlathotep as a patron.>World never did that kid a good turn, so I guess he figured he wouldn't do too many back. That boss of his bought his deeds, and his friends? They earned the good they got.>3e D&D LN Cleric of Bane (Ex-cleric of Mystra)>He turned from a god that died on him to one that came back. Didn't seem to care what path that idol would lead on, just as long as he had something he could feel good following.>3e D&D Fighter, started at high level. Dual-weilded Bastard Swords. Without a doubt the most Anime character I've ever played.>Some folk have a reason to keep on goin', others don't seem to need one. That kid? She was a little of both, tryin' to take the easy path to a big dream. 'Course easy for her was through a whole tribe of orcs sometimes.>Tri-stat Urban Fantasy character, one of the Grigori>It wouldn't be the first time he made his mistakes, and it wouldn't be the last either. It's what he was made for, after all.
>Spent his whole life hating the small for what they did to him, his family.>He chased the person behind it all with every waking moment.>His hatred fueled him.>It also fueled something much bigger, something he never expected.>Now the unexpected has arrived.>Turns out he's the small one.
>>51214321He who fights the darkness blindly has already been overtaken by it.
>Kid never had a chance to be a kid, down in the gutters>Got tough, wanted to get even>Y'could say she got it ... this place took care of Dear Old Dad 'fore she had the chance>Thing is, ain't nobody told her>Breaking another family ain't gonna set nothin' straight>Gotta ask yourself>You fightin' 'cause it's right>Or is it right 'cause you're fightin' for it?
>>51209952>The man's theatrics and boasting were looked down on.>Nobody'd take him seriously.>Turns out, he wasn't boasting.>Just telling the truth.>>51214321>Those who are easily distracted by charity lose sight of one's personal goals.
>>51209952(Don't actually know the character but I get the gist.)>Poor kid spent his whole life livin' for other people.>With a war a-brewin' the people he lived for them's all goners.>Now he's going to live for himself.>And I just hope you're not the feller standing inbetween him and 'fun'
>>51245930listen to this glorious chocolaty voice...https://youtu.be/BD3nQd4NGmcthat voice, is Ruckus.
>>51214321> Endurance and intellect lie sunken in the mire of apathy
>>51246036yeah, that voice and word choice probably sold quite a few copies of the game all on it's own.the fact that the actual GAME is also pretty damn good made it even better.
>>51238357>That boy ain't right.Why did you make me read your post not in Rucks' voice but in Hank Hill's?
>It weren't her fault she was what she was.>Figured out real quick that her scales and claws bothered more than a few folks.>The kid thought she could control it. Build a wall covered in smiles and rainbows, hiding the hell behind that...>But fightin' someone's own nature ain't easy.>'Specially when it's so damn fun to just let loose.
>>51209952>Kid was true to himself>No masks, no delusions, he was himself all the way down>That's where he found his strength, that's how he held on for so long>...>Through all the terrible things that he did>No one could say he didn't love his work
>The kid thought she didn't need friends.>The kid was wrong, of course.>Everyone needs a friend, every now and again.>Kid didn't think she had any friends.>Kid was wrong about a lot of things.
>>51209952>That kid may not be all there, more brain than sense, but I'd be a lying man if I said his brew wasn't the best this side of the wall.>Not his fault some folks can't hold their liquor. Not his fault his liquor makes em breath fire.
>>51209952>The man's rage burned his way outta hell>Spent his borrowed time sendin' others there>All the while thinkin' he'd see his family again on the other side>And not that he'd just end right back up in the flame>>51214321>Malice and vengeance given form. A useful tool, given proper direction.
>Kid was a mad dog lacking a dutiful owner>Always hungering for his next meal>We just hoped it would be his last
>>51210827My characters a astromech with a black paint job, so maybe something involving Gary Coleman I guess.
>>51209952Current PC:>Kid's thinks he's great because his ancestor was a hero.>Shame he's only qualified to lead his dog.Previous PC:>Kid saw half the world before twenty, saw far beyond that too.>He's a pawn to somethin' bigger, though, and he knows it. But it don't weigh heavy on him, 'cause he loves an audience.PC before that:>I get how he feels. Man made mistakes, made things that hurt people.>But he's got the whole world relyin' on him. He can't give up now.
Kid always had a gift for bringing people happiness.And something worse for those that took it away...
>>51209952What would the Halo multiplayer announcer say about your character?KILLING SPREE
>Now most people got themselves a habit of hiding their scars from the world; Ugly ain't usually a thing to be proud of after all>But her? Naw, she's a little different, got things a bit mixed up along the way>Instead she got to using her scars to hide from the world, wears her ugly like some kind of armor>In all fairness it certainly worked for quite a while, unfortunately it means she was all kinds of vulnerable when she was stripped bare of 'em; right when the whole world threw a spotlight on her>Can hardly blame her though, she had those scars most of her life now. Years of accrued lessons and mistakes. Who could possibly expect them to go anywhere?>For it all to just fade away with the wave of a hand? Sounds an awful lot like magic to me>And Magic? Well, everybody knows that ain't real>...Right?
>>51214321>Power in her hands, a Crown atop her head, Responsibility on her shoulders. Such weight can only crush the one beneath it... She will see soon enough.
>>51209952>Bad man, that one. Ain't right in the head to use yerself as a guinea pig like that. Poor fool got no idea what he done to himself, an' it's only gonna get worse.
>>51246240Bastion is probably the greatest fusion of story, gameplay and presentation I have ever seen Until Transistor Anyway:>Kid spent his whole life fighting, it was the only thing he ever knew>So when the girl told him the kingdom had finally found peace, well, it was the worst thing he had ever heard.
>>51255104Bastion had the better narrator though
>>51209952>A man spends all his life chasing glory, like he's got something to prove.>One day, he finds out there's nobody left to prove it to.>Pulls the rug right out from under him. What's the point in going on?>Gotta find something new to hold on to. Any port in a storm.
>>51209952Final Fantasy Style Blue Mage>Well, The Kid had everything once.>It was a hard fall to the life of a travelling mercenary hunter.>Now, he is rising higher than ever before.>Even acquired himself some new friends. >If he ain't careful however, he's gonna see which side of the razor's edge learnin' lies on. Old West Bounty Hunter>This Kid was an old-timer till recently. >He knows more about fighting, shooting, and hunting then any man on either side of the river. >But, dealing with loss, it doesn't matter if he lives to be eighty a second time, I don't think he'll ever get used to that. >>51214321Final Fantasy Style Blue Mage>Is it a noble playing at being a monster, or a monster playing at being a noble, either way, its savagery will prove useful. Old West Bounty Hunter>An old hero, recast in new flesh, his weapon thunders, and foul beasts fall.
>>51214321A monster, wearing a human form like a mask. Yet it more humane than some real humans.
>>51209952>Some folk rage at the gods when things don't go their way>Him? He decided to try and kill em>Lotta rage and pride in him>>51210827Well he's white, but he also has fuck-huge wings and demon horns.
>>51214321>Once a noble member of our family line, fallen to Madness and Rage, worshiping dark gods and granted power to conquer in their name.>>51259038Same Character
>>51209952>Bein' born into nobility would be enough for most people to find a satisfying life>Unfortunately for him he heard one too many stories about how his granddad was a great explorer and now sittin' 'round seems mighty torturous>The kid don't know how average folk live but he set out into the world to make his own way and has the determination to see it through>Too bad he's just as likely to end-up face down in a ditch along the way
>People tend to confuse 'simple' for 'stupid'. Kid might not have a taste for the finer things in life, but he knows what he likes and he likes what he does. Can't fault him for that.>Sure, you'd think someone so used to picking men up and slamming their heads together would have one big, long mean streak, but you get past all the yelling and punching to find a fella who's happy to be friends with just about everyone.>Just don't get between him and a steak dinner.>Now here's a Kid who had it rough.>Everything was just too much for her–and something broke in that little head of hers.>Her smile's all wrong, now; too wide, too bright, no matter whether she's taking the hurt or dealing it right back out.>...>But she's no lost cause, either.>Not yet.>Once you get past how the Kid makes a bloody mess of everything just by virtue of existing, she's not a bad egg. 'Course, that doesn't make her a good one either.>That's the problem in going with the flow – you let others decide things for you too long, you get swept up in bad causes as well as good ones, and you start to lose the will to choose for yourself.>Once that withers, what good's her sword if she can't commit to swinging it when it matters most?>Kid's been sheltered her whole life, and a girl bright as she is doesn't take well to being coddled.>Then the bombs dropped.>Now that she's been thawed out of her pod, she's got a whole new world to explore, with new friends by her side and a whole boatload of problems to solve.>Gonna be rough, but the Kid's actually kind of looking forward to it.
>kid only wanted a family>there's a right way and a wrong way to go about that>cobbling em together yourself outta leftovers? Well, it ain't the right way.
>>51261441This seems kinda off character for Rucks. I wouldn't have commented, but I'm pretty sure he actually says basically the exact opposite of this re: the Bastion's growing number of inhabitants. I think he even uses the word "cobble" for it, too.
>>51261755I'm pretty sure in that case its a frankenstein scenario
>Kid can run. Fast.>Catches everything he chases.>...>Never knows when to run from his problems, though.>Takes on the weight of the world, until he can't run no more.
>>51209952>Reckon it's true what they say - it ain't the bad ones you have to look out for, it's the dumb ones>A bad man will hurt you only if they think they'll get somehing out of it, a dumb man is a constant danger
> Kid seems mighty fond o’ herself, seeing as that’s all that’s left.> Born into nobility, but now she ain’t got a people to lead.> Civilization burnt away five hundred years ago, some miracle o’ the Gods saw her through.> …> …> Kid’s broken-hearted, certainly ain’t strong enough to make it alone.> Don’t think she won’t try anythin’ stupid, but those new friends, few as they are, seem like mighty fine restraints.> …> …> Somethin’ broke in that little head of hers, too.> Something about realizin’ just who she was up against, an’ how small things are in the big pond her world’s become.> …> … > Broken shards of a mirror, bound together with desperation— how quaint.Also, thanks for reminding me I need to play Bastion, /tg/.
>>51214321> The void has taken this one, harboring him in a festering pool of malice and centralized anger. His mind will break before he willingly bends to it.
>>51214321>Her smile fools no one but herself, she can't keep up the act for much longer
>>51214321>She may think herself changed, a new person after the meeting with her progeny, but to many a harlot remains such all the way to her grave. She may recognize old friends by face, but they most likely remember her by the back of her neck.
