"You think people are worth saving do you? You call yourself a hero!?""Where were you when I needed you? Where were you when they slaughtered my family, when they destroyed everything I hold dear. You let such atrocities happen. Vacant! Absent! No where to be seen!""But I don't blame you, I just learned the truth. There are no such things as heroes. Only false idols. But I will make an Idol... no... a monument from the ashes of your failure."How does your character respond?
>>52960138>How does your character respond?Prepared action......>Attack if the fucker starts to monologue.Bad guy monologues are the worst.
>>52960138>"sorry m8, had to take a wicked piss"
>>52960235munchkin'g it up, I see.
>>52960138"Ive often found myself asking the same questions. Fucking greenskins destroyed everything I held dear in one day. What was an average day for them, was the biggest moment in my life. There was no hero there for me that day. But id be no better than the things that destroyed my village if I didn't stand up for the good in the world and fight for it. Stay angry at the world, angry at me; but I will not let this be the end to my tale."
>>52960138"How do you let yourself be such a whiny bitch? Oh no, you didn't get special treatment and wanted someone to fix your problems for you! God damn your family probably just hoped you'd die first.
>>52960138Necromancer: No, I came here for the knowledge that your war party was going to burn in its pat, I only continue to fight to save myself. You seem to think I am doing this or anything out of the goodness of my heart, and while I may be charitable at times, this wasn't one of them. Now let me leave or I will kill you and use your corpse to aid me in the future, or to slaughter your sorry excuse of an army. Psion/ Cleric of creation/ forging :....Heroes exist,but I've seen them be seduced and led astray as easily as any other man. I was underground when you suffered, so I could not have helped. I am only here to stop my sisters, which judging from how you speak, you're serving one of them. So with the sincerest of apologies for your own loses, tell me where she is, or I will be forced to beat the answer out of you.Imperial guardsman/ Knight: Ker, why do I have to meet the clever green skins? What sort of lark are you talking about, your kind is only good for war and fighting, basically animals nipping at the heels of your betters. And here you stand with the audacity to talk about the heroes of man, and spit upon them. Your kind has no knowledge of heroics or any kind of wholesomeness. And I will cut you down as I have done to many of your ilk. Thank the emperor you're a feral sort and don't have any grenades or shooters of any kind. Yes, at least I can fight you as a man of the emperor, and cut you down like the beast you are. FOR THE EMPEROR AND MANKIND, HAVE AT THEE!
>>52960138He turns to the Arch-Militant and orders him to kill the impertinent whelp who stands before him.
>>52960138"I'm not a Wizard. I am incapable of being everywhere at once. I am honestly sorry that you had to suffer so much, but your 'hero' bar is set wayyyy too high. A hero isn't someone who is capable of saving everyone everywhere all the time. A hero is someone who helps where and when they can. This is why we need a lot of them. The fact that atrocities still happen, such as those you suffered, is proof that we need heroes now more than ever.">>52960265Alternatively, this.
>>52960138>Yes>Fucking bitches and getting money>I'd prefer if you didn't

>>52960138THERE ARE STILL HEROES LEFT IN MAN
>>52960138Sorry that I'm not omnipotent. I'm just a man, not a god. But rejecting heroes just because nobody came to save the day for you is like forsaking bathing because you stepped in shit. Doesn't really solve the issue, does it?

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me you little bitch
>>52960138>"quod nomina sanctus"smite, smite, smiteor >"lugga probably in pub">"we fight now yes?"depending on which one's being addressed
>>52960138"What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo."
But my friend, do you not see your path as that of a hero would? Do you not see your quest as a necessary one? What marks the difference between a man who is a hero, and the man who is a villain? No one claims a hero could walk the earth and stop every tree from falling, and every man from dying. But we know that your actions, actions of evil and hatred have a choice. No one stopped them from destroying everything, but my death will not stop further suffering, it might even cause more for the small good I can do.So let me help you now, stop what you have done and walk a brighter path. For if we battle and either of us fall it would be the end of two quests never quite satisfied.If my failures scarred you, because I chose this path- then your anger is understood. But you must know that vengeance wont undo what is done.
"you know, given how many people take their family getting destroyed as motivation to BECOME the hero they needed so these things don't happen again, as opposed to becoming the villain so these things will happen with increasing regularity, i think your real problem here is that you're just intrinsically a dick."
>>52960138"Look motherfucker. Get off your angst horse and man the fuck up. Loss, death its part of life. Do you know what my first experience with combat was? 4 orcs and a pack of Goblins they had enslaved. There were 14 of us when the fight began. There were 4 left at the end. I saw most of my friends die that day and nearly had my own eyes gouged out. I never called myself a hero others did. I do what do to SURVIVE. Because that's all I am good at, surviving. Not shut the fuck up sit down and drink this fucking ale with me."
"I never called myself a hero. Other people did. I'm just an evil man who fell in with good company and became slightly better for it. When I fulfill my oath, I just want to get as far as I can from here and raise my children. I didn't let such atrocities happen, I caused them. You see this barren landscape? You see this corrupted soil? You see the slaughter? I was there to create it.What have you lost? Your family? I lost my family years ago. Got them back only to lose them again. I've lost every friend I've ever had for 107 years. I've lost my most prized possessions, my wealth, my followers, the kingdom I worked so hard to build. I've lost my employment twice, and I've lost my life five times over. Go ahead and take my failures, there's enough to build a city of monuments.Who are you anyway?"It's weird being in a good campaign as the only survivor of an evil campaign which came before.
>>52960138''How long have I mused on this? You needn't ask the questions that always surface on my mind, knight of blackest armor.I would never dare call myself a hero; who am I to judge the worth of my own soul, tell black from white? Such matters reek of pride. No. I simply try to help people to the best of my ability, when able: it's all I know, and all that ultimately matters to me in this life.And yet, you seem to forget how my companions and I are faced, time and time again, at every turn with the worst our people have to offer.The deepest depravities the human heart is capable of committing, do you think witnessing such atrocities so often doesn't pull at even the apathetic man's heart?We are terribly sorry for what has happened to your loved ones. I admit your loss may well have been more than I would be able to endure, but...What does that speak of YOU?! Look at yourself now, demon. You seem to pride yourself on having left your humanity behind; your heart ringing as pitch-black as it pollutes the air around us, devoid of any warmth! Still, you cling onto the despair and resentment proper of us mortals. Am I mistaken in believing this makes you nothing less than a hypocrite?What have you truthfully gained from hating your fellow man? What gifts have your anger and cruelty bestowed upon you?Where righteous wrath and indignation at the world we live in have given way to unbridled Evil and a disregard for all that was once held dear, I see you, taking an easy way out. Such is the difference between you and a hero!In forfeiting what makes us humane, you have thrown away what would ever drive us to improve the world around ourselves!Don't you see? I'm terribly saddened to stand in front of you today, like this. But you'll have to step forth, if you wish to see whose beliefs will hold true!''
>>52961283I'm a fucking sucker for this kind of stuff, and gladly eat anything like this whenever our DM throws it at us. That I'm drunk right now doesn't help one bit, but here would be my current character's likely answer.Seriously, am I the only person here that LIKES it when the bad guys monologue? It can be fun.
>>52960138"Haven't...haven't I already killed you?I know I've heard this speech before.Uh, look, I'm not great with witty counterplay so you're going to have to trust me when I say you're an idiot. Just, like, tell whoever meets you in the afterlife that I said something really cool or biting and then I'm gonna keep helping people."
>>52961296Bad guy monologue is only good when done correctly and not just rants about "IM SO FUCKING EVIL FOR THESE COMPLETELY ARBITRARY AND HAM FISTED PHILOSOPHICAL REASONS"
>>52960138"Look, heroes can't always be there, nor always succeed. We're no gods-well, the wizards might be, but you know how their morality is. I mean, that's the reason my armor is as sour as yours. This world isn't always happiness, but we can make an effort to try and make it better. More ordered, so that people won't get screwed as often. It might be a delusion, but it's pretty enough for me to chase it, in my own way. Now, you have one last chance to repent, before you know the actual meaning of profane power."
>>52960138I laugh at his pseudo edgelord meme motivation and at the DM for thinking his angsty dmpc sue badguy would be impressive.
>>52960138So is this basically Syndrome from The Incredibles?
>>52960138Heroes are not going to eradicate all evil everywhere. To think they are is to be absurdly, naively, and delusionally optimistic.The goal of heroism is not the complete erasure of all that is bad in the world. The goal of heroism is the reduction of the occurrence of such events.I don't really know what your end goal is, but I assure you that all other things being equal, a decrease in competent heroes leads to an increase in events like the one you experienced.So stop being a selfish, needy little snowflake bitch, get off your fucking high horse, stop throwing a fucking tantrum, and fuck right the fuck off.
>>52960138Hey man, I don't call myself a hero, it's just what some misguided romantics call me because I'm the only one desperate enough to take up the crappy odd jobs around the continent. Maybe I could've saved your little doomed hometown if I wasn't halfway across the plane dragging myself over dunes upon dunes of nothing, slinging some dying idiot over my shoulder while the other hand kept my guts from falling out. I'm sorry kid, you can kill me if you want, but know that your family will still be dead, and you'll be the only one that cares if I'm dead, which is admittedly more than I deserve.
>>52960138"The only difference between you and me, beast, is that while I endured the challenges of life, mourned my losses and rejoiced at my victories, you fell to those challenges, became a pawn of whatever fateweaver has brought ruin to you. Your violent lust for revenge is the brightest spit on the graves of your loved ones one could think of. Not only did you not chase after those who have committed atrocities against your family, you've decided to decimate, one by one, those who simply cannot do it all.A doctor cannot save every patient. Town guard cannot save every hooker. We cannot fight every monster.And despite all that, when one slips by and does what they do best, hurt innocents, you instead of rising to avenge your lost ones and save others from such a fate, strive to hunt down those who would've otherwise helped you.You are the failure. A mistake. One which direly requires some fixing."Then he'd probably die horribly because he's not made to fight armoured bastards like the one in OP's pic hand-to-hand, and if they're on badass boast distance just firing crossbow bolts is likely to not work out as good as it would otherwise.
>>52960138"Judging by the fact you are also a young man, I was probably EIGHT at the time and thus unable to save your village."
>>52960138"Aye, and for that I'll be givin' ye the Black Spot."
>>52960138Dude monsters destroyed my home and slaughtered my family too, you don't see me dressing in black and wearing skeletons about it. Why the fuck do you think I got into this aweful business in the first place?
>>52960424>40k fagsWew lad

>>52961283>>52960436>>52961078>>52961253these are all really good.
>>52960138"I was saving someone else's family. I'm a Hero, not a God. I can't be everywhere at once, I can just try my hardest to help"
>>52960138Pre-Encounter:>Learn everything you possibly can about villain>Learn about his woeful, heart-breaking history>Learn the names of those he loved>Learn about his deceased daughter "Emera"Intra-Encounter:>"What would Emera think?"Post-Encounter:>"There, there, Trimesta the Destroyer. Here are some more tissues. Shhh. It's gonna be okay.">;_;
>>52960138I was probably elsewhere saving some other guys family. Why didn't you use all this villain power to save them
>>52960138That's no excuse to be a jerk.>Shoots with musket
>>52960138"THE TRUTH HAS GOT IT'S BOOTS ON!" proceeded by about fifty seconds of kicking the ever loving fuck out of the guy.Because, holy crap, that monologue was retarded.
>>52960138Interesting perspective, but your argument is patently invalid. Your premise (i.e. heroes didn't help me) simply does not necessitate your conclusion (i.e. heroes do not really exist). Mind you, this doesn't mean your conclusion is wrong necessarily. So please reformulate your argument properly so that we can have a proper debate. While your at it, please also tell me what definition of hero you're using, just in case this is a merely verbal disagreement.
>>52960993Audible keks, best pasta
*Loud sigh.* "Look man I don't know how many times I need to explain this to people like you, but I have to ask, what you accomplish by killing me? Ultimately, all this does will cause less people to be saved, and more people will end up like yo-Oh...now I see. I think you just want more people to feel how you felt! Why would you do this for such a shallow reason you bastard! Even if your family was alive I'd doubt you feel different, you use the deaths of the family you once had as a excuse to conduct these atrocious acts...You are truly a Villain, and if villains exist, heroes must also."
>>52960138Who the fuck are you?
>>52960138"I don't need to explain myself. We both know you are just an insufferable cunt with a murderboner hidden behind the false facade of justice, who simply doesn't understand that being a hero is just rising up to help whenever you can, not being an omnipotent benevolent god that is capable of saving everyone. But it's clear that you're simply looking for a fight.So, you want a fight? Then it's a fight you get. Come at me, bro."
>>52961447Syndrome wasn't a villain, though. Anti-hero, maybe.
>>52962196>Kills like a hundred retired heroes for very petty reasons>Tries to kidnap a child after attempting to make him into an orphan>Describes himself as a supervillainI don't think you know what a villain is.
>>52960138Look man, I'm just getting paid to kill you. Don't make this weird
So, you expect nothing less than godlike perfection from everybody. I am afraid *that* is in short supply, but I will muster just enough to end you.
>>52962208>>Kills like a hundred retired heroes for very petty reasonsThey mostly knew what they signed up for.>>Tries to kidnap a child after attempting to make him into an orphanTouche.>>Describes himself as a supervillainYeah, and I'm Elvis Presley.
>>52961283fucking nice, senpai
You aren't even a cute girl.
>>52960138I'm an old man bow. Battered and grey... Everybody I ever loved has died long ago, and only I remain. I know this, more than anyone. Each night, I take inventory of all my many failures, and my triumphs. And a planet of regret rests on my shoulders. The comrades I wasn't able to save, the cities I wasn't able to defend, the people. So many people. They're all burned into the fissures of my mind, I see their faces every night. And I'll never be able to make peace with that, for as long as keep on. I hear their screams, I see the bodies all of them calling out to me. And they look at me and ask "Why?" And I'll never have an answer for them. I don't need you to tell me of my failures, boy. I know full well. I was never a hero. I never called myself a hero, people spoke of me as if I were a god. I'm no god. Look at me.I am just as imperfect, fragile as mortal as you. But against all the misery and the strife, I went on. And I was able to bring some good into the world. And that's all that I could've hoped for. I never asked to be a hero. I've seen battlefields littered with the corpses of the innocent, I've seen the worst of man, I've seen unspeakable horrors long forgotten, and I've seen demons. Do you know what else I've seen? I've seen that they can be beaten. By brave men and women with unshakable conviction and a belief that makes gods stare in awe and creates wonders..For your family, I am sorry. But so long as you take up your blade and seek the so all the harm and injustice that was done to you, then I will stand against you. This is my atonement. For the rest of my days. I offer by blade against the worst of us, so that the best of us may live and if the gods will it, maybe one day more children will have to lose their families.Do what you must, I'll do the same and we'll see which of us the God's favor in the end.

Why don't you lift your whiny ass and fix the wrongs yourself? Why don't you stand against the odds, like a hero should? Is one betrayal enough of an odd to turn you from the True path? Scum! Scum!
>>52960138>walk away mid monologue, aint got time fo dis
>>52960138Where was I?Where were you when your minions set fire to the inn? When the innkeeper's daughter was pinned beneath a fallen timber, perishing alongside her father as he struggled selflessly to save her?Look at what you've accomplished in spite of your own tragedy. Look at the obstacles you've overcome and the greatness you've achieved. Look how far you've come.You had the power to change the world. To make things right. To be the hero we needed, that you knew we all needed. You had the power to make things better, to beat back the darkness in honor of your loved ones' memory and all the good they shared with you.And instead you chose to wallow inyour own misery. You chose revenge, not against what took them from you, but against a world that had only committed the crime of suffering in different ways than yourself.What would your family think of your choices?
OP, you could communicate that entire monologue far more directly, and with more impact, if you showed instead of telling.
>>52963136Powerful picture.I need to go watch/read this thing
>>52960138Yeah, anyone who goes on a rant like that is not going to be listening to reason any time soon. Call me a murderhobo, but I'm rolling for initiative.

>>52960138My GM actually did this to me once. And not just any normal this, but I was trapped in the feywild for a decade, so it was a kid I had saved way back when, and then had grown up without me blaming me for not saving her from everything else. Unfortunately, I was playing a Lawful Alignmentflipped Bird at the time, and didn't take no shit. I think it upset him.Current characters would basically go, "Buddy, you clearly don't have the slightest clue what 'hero' means."
>>52960138"Nice story, I will make sure to steal it after I kill you. It would make a lovely poem, time to rumble baby!".
>"You let yourself be consumed by the darkness so bring it on, demon! The light will be glorified in you I will make sure of it."
>>52960138You're right. I wasn't there for you when you needed me most. I'm just a man, I can't be everywhere. I wish I could be, though. Even with how shit this hero job seems to be.And I wasn't there when you changed, I wasn't there when you took a bad turn in life and decided the best way to strike back against those that wronged you was to cover yourself in the same muck and shit that they wallow in. And what's worse, is that I wasn't there for the people you hurt on your path to taking your revenge.But i'm here today. And i'm here for the people you'd hurt down the line. And i'm here for you, so if you wanna grandstand me, don't waste my time any further. Misguided or not i'm not afraid of beating you into a grave for what you've done.

>>52965340I know that, but he is a hobgoblin so he doesn't know much about fruit and berries as he mostly eats salt pork, salt "pork", and gruel so he'd just call it a mouth fart noise and would wonder what's the connection between berries and farting if it was brought upm
>>52960138I shrug, and kill him. I don't even mean it in a cynical way - I'm just sort of sad that he's reached the state where he has to be put down. If I have to say anything, I probably say:> "I can't be there for everyone."
>>52960138Become the hero you in vision, lad. Don't take short cut.>>52960436I would steal the last part!
>>52960138>You call yourself a hero!?"No.Heroes are ______.Now hippity hoppity and get off my property. I've got an oil well to sink.
>>52960138"I'm a fucking THIEF for gods sake, I save little children sometimes sure but Christ man I'm barely a person let alone a hero!"OR"I was dead for a while so I guess I didn't stop some evil then but otherwise you don't live in my fucking Kingdom and a sherif can't do everything for every kingdom."
>>52960138"Have you even looked at what you're wearing?"
>>52961253I imagine that setup is godly for roleplaying though. If you feel like it, I would love to hear about how your character interacts with the world and party.
>i lost my family>better attack people who weren't even therethis isn't even a motivation. it's a fucking crazy person with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. you don't even justify that shit with a reply, just yank the XP out of him and sell his clothes to the nearest merchant
>>52960138Do you expect me to kiss every boo boo and stop every bad thing from happening? To stop every theft and every murder? Fuck off you entitled child and if you don't like how the world is go change it for the better. You had the chance to take your tragedy and use it as a foundation to never let that pain happen to another person, but you pussied out and decided to take it out on othersI'm doing the best i can and if you don't like it either help me or get out of my way
"Why was it my responsibility to save your village? If you wanted a hero so badly, you should have been one. Courage often demands sacrifice, and you cowered in the corner, waiting for someone to lose their life for yours? Don't place your failures on innocent passerby."this guy isn't protoman. protoman tried, at least. this guy is more like mankind
>>52960138"Your codpiece looks retarded."
"I was dead. It didn't stick."
>>52960138I can't recall ever in an RPG to have seen a speech that's so much like some edgy fantasy anime.That shit is the worst.On the other hand, it probably means I'm playing a Naruto and therefore that I can talk him out of it. So I'mma give that a try.
>>52960138"Why didn't you save your family?" >*Bad guy excuse*"Then why did you think I could save them? I am just a man, nothing more. I cannot beat every enemy, I cannot be everywhere at once, I cannot save everyone. I am sorry for you loss, but I am not a god. I am merely human, like you.
>>52969031Samefag again.If we're talking my group's Dark Heresy campaign, probably something more along the lines of:"Knee-deep in mud, showered with severed limbs in the trenches of the Sabbat Campaign. I know your loss, but you have strayed from the path and you dug your own grave that day. I'm going to put you in the ground, traitor."

>>52960138AS I LIVE, THERE IS NO EVIL THAT WILL STANDI WILL FINISH, WHAT WAS STARTEDTHE FIGHT OF PROTOMAAAAAANNNNN
>>52963000Damn, son. I was just throwing around some light bantz.
>>52960138"Yes they are worth saving. For me. Maybe for my friends as well. I spent half my life stumbling in darkness and trying to find the way to do it. All this time not even understanding what I was looking for. And in the end I found out that there is no answer. No clear path. Only darkness and wailing of fucking weaklings who would just cry to the skies and won't do anything. Parents damning their children to the life filled with terror and death. Children forgetting what they were taught and repeating the same mistakes. Unspeakable horror self-perpetuated by victims for they never had the courage to stand up and look it in the eye and see that it is only their own shadow.After I understood all that I could have just stopped like many did. But anger at a man who showed this truth to me pushed me forward. At first I just wanted to punch him in the face. Later I understood that his and my actions, the way we were pushing through the world, making it bend and break around us, our most simple actions, were creating the path I was looking for in the first place. For there were people who choose to follow us, to remake the world into something that never has been. That never before even seemed possible. And now you are standing in my way. It is my fault. For everything is my fault. As it is everyone's else fault. For they all didn't stop it. And you are the first among those at fault for you cared most of all and didn't do anything. You want to challenge me? Go on. You are not the first and you would not be the last. I was beaten so many times I could no longer count but I always stood up and learned from my failures. You? You fell and decided that crawling through dirt and shit is the best way you can spend your time. Be my guest."
*Attacks straight away* "Your words are empty and meaningless. If you were meant to live the life you wanted you would have fought to defend it to your last breath. Instead you stand here blaming me for your weakness. By steel I will prove my right to live or by steel you will prove your point and have your vengeance. This is the only truth that matters and the only measure by which I will be swayed" I fucking love Kalgor charisma of a rock

>>52960138I am but one man and can only do so much, I don't see myself as a hero because I know everyday I fail more and more people such as yourself because I am not a god.The most I can do is try to inspire others to be better, to make the world better to the best of my abilities.Now it's come to this, in your anger and thirst for vengeance you've done the very thing that set you on this path countless times over, and I am forced to make the world better by removing you.

Yet here you are, At the least, lets make this a fight worth reading about?." *unsheates axe*
>>52960138You call these abominations 'people'?The atrocities committed, by my design or by freak occurrence, pale in comparison to the truth only I seem to see, and that which lurketh beneath us.If it is any consolation, I see the errors of my ambition now. I cannot bear this existence. But you will not be the one to remove this dynastic stain. Only the blood of my blood may undo this all. Perhaps he will break the cycle - perhaps he will perpetuate it.In any case, our saviour is in danger, so long as either of us live. Come. Let me refashion you.

>>52972785Sounds like your character needs some lighter days ahead anon.
>>52960138"So you would prefer all of Creation being devoured by abominations then? Every time I encounter you and your ilk it is the same story. Cursing my fellow Disciples and myself for not being there to save the people or places that you have ravaged. Ever cursing us for not saving that child who you had raped and whose soul you had consumed. Always blaming us for the faults of the world, in order to cover up your own selfishness and evil. It never changes no matter what Multiverse we travel to. No matter what branch of existence we travel to. It always remains the same with you slaves of the Dark. You stand here before me, bristling with power cursing me for the deaths of your family and loved ones, when you could have gone forward to avenge them. You stand before me in a ruined land, inflicting the same atrocities and horrors that you suffered upon it's people. You stand before me with armor and power, that you gained from butchering innocents and murdering their souls. You stand before me wielding the exact same dark powers as the ones who had destroyed what you loved, and you think you can claim the moral high-ground? You perpetuate the same cycle of evil and horror that was inflicted upon you to others and drag them down alongside you, damning their souls. I do not see before me a misguided, tortured youth. All I see is an abomination born of the Dark. You had the chance to avenge your loved ones, those you lost, and you stomped over it i blind rage. Your mindless lust for vengeance is the worst defilement you could over commit to their memory. You spit over their graves with every action you take, with every blighted step you make upon this world. I see now that you care not for avenging your lost ones, you only care about damning others along with yourself in your cycle of ruin.I have lost so much more than you could ever possibly imagine, and yet unlike you those losses tempered me, bettered me. And now for the good of all upon this land, I end it."
>>52960138"I can't save the ones you've lost and I can't save you either.But I can save those you wish to destroy. Regardless of your reasons, you are a threat and I will do whatever I must to stop you."*Draws sword and board and takes a defensive position*
>>52960138>Ye ever thought about the fact that a hero might not have peen present to save your family because some heavily armored, horned helm wearing cunt somewhere managed to kill them before they could show up?No matter what I try to come with, this just ends like a Monty Python sketch.
>>52960138You chose not to become a hero for the others you could have spared from the fate you so abhor. There are no such things as heroes, not for the likes of you.You're a man broken by their own regrets, warped by misguided machinations until all that is left is a rabid animal. One I'll put down without ceremony or remembrance.Draw your weapon.
>>52962643T-thank you anon.
I truly believe my efforts were all for nothing. No matter how hard you try and how long you persist nothing will change. Struggle is the soul of humanity, and I've come to realize the beauty in resisting the absurd. I embrace this madness.Even after my bones turn to dust my raging spirit will stay chained to this world, manifesting in one way or another.Who knows, you might even be the one inherit my burden, or will your blood rust my chains and set us free?
>>52960138"A hero is a just a man who knows he is free."
>>52960138Well you didn't fucking post anything on the notice board, you tiddle-headed troglodyte.
>>52960138Piss off, cunt. I was having a wank.
>>52960138>Where were you when I needed you?"I was delayed by people like you."
>>52961358That's a villain, not a DMPC you fucking grognard, if you think you can do better, volunteer to DM for once in your pathetic life. Your DM will appreciate it.
>>52960138D&D Blackguard: "And you wish to drown the world in your self-pity. Pathetic."WoD Mage: "Oh my god it's like I'm living out a Linkin Park album."
>>52960138"I'm, sorry. I don't remember any of it."
>>52960138Ah. It must have been when I was younger. There was a time, boy, when I searched for steel, and steel meant more to me than gold or jewels.
>>52960138"Only a guy man; I've had my taste of pain and I'm quite sick of it. I drink it up anyways, because if I can stomach it, it's less for others.You tasted it and decided to share. That's a fair mistake, I won't pretend I never entertained it, but it will not stand. I'll take your pain away from you, one way or another. I only hope there's more than pain in your body, because otherwise, there won't be anything left.
>>52960138Listen sir, or, ma'am? I do not know where it is you got notions of me being a hero from. I have just been taking on jobs for good causes and decent money until such a time as I am able to start my own trade/tailor business. I am sure whatever you have been through is terrible but I am just a wanna be merchant baron.
>>52960138No shit. There's only men who do the best they can knowing that it's never enough, that saving one person doesn't balance out not being there for another.I've saved so many people. They call me a Hero, praise my efforts, tell me that I've done more than any man could. But here I stand, my heart still beating, my limbs still hale, my breath still warm and yet people still are suffering. Those I've saved bring no comfort, no succor to those I've failed to save. I stare the monument that is my failure in they eye every time I go out, knowing that in choosing to do one deed another goes unfinished and that while I am rewarded for my successess others pay for my failures, for the choices I made to help one and not the other.But where are you? Are you so obsessed with my failure that you ignore your own? Right now another child is losing their family, their home, their world. Your answer to them would be the same as mine. But when I ask that question of myself I can say "I was doing the best I could. It wasn't enough, so tomorrow I'll do a little bit more because that is all I can do, and it won't be enough either."What can you sat when you ask yourself if it was worth it, to show an old man a rain drop while he's drowning in an endless ocean.
>>52960138> Mister I'm only twelve.> Where we're YOU when MY village was destroyed? When MY family was killed? > Was this what you were doing?
>>52960138>"You think people are worth saving do you? You call yourself a hero!?"Not really. I have made no claims to be a hero, and frankly, my actions have been solely out of self-interest. Anyone saying I'm a hero now, before I've realized my vision of a civilized world, is doing so of their own accord and I have no control over that. Not that I have any interest in stopping them.>"Where were you when I needed you? Where were you when they slaughtered my family, when they destroyed everything I hold dear. You let such atrocities happen. Vacant! Absent! No where to be seen!"What, do you think you're first in line for a saviour? Do you think you deserve my help over any others? What do you even have to offer me in return for my services? A man like you, how many men could you command, how much gold could you offer my cause?>"But I don't blame you, I just learned the truth. There are no such things as heroes. Only false idols. But I will make an Idol... no... a monument from the ashes of your failure."Well now. It seems like you intend to end this violently. So be it, you black, gargantuan walking abortion. My steel will meet yours gladly.
"He... He thinks we're heros?" *laughing* "There are no heros lad. We're just powerful people with a point of view. Whether ours is correct or not is for the history books to decide, but for now, call us what we are, a disaster with an opinion."

>>52960138"You think heroes exist to prevent every tragedy? No, heroes exist despite tragedy. A single flame cannot light the world, but it can pierce through the darkness as a beacon, and from it new fires can be made to defy the dark. That you can not see this is why you are lost. You've soaked your kindling and gouged your eyes; in your blind stumbling you've stamped out other flames. Well, my fire still burns bright, and as long as someone, somewhere needs its guidance I will not allow it to be extinguished by the likes of you!"
>>52960138"There is the truest fault of the hero. No one can ever save every person, no one can be everywhere at once. You take solace in the few you save and then repent for the ones you can't. You do better, and in the end, you ante up."

>>52960138>wew, the GM really is 14 years old.
>>52960138"I am no hero, you poor soul, just a humble wandering priest. When you needed me, I was but a feeble lost soul not unlike yourself, mired in delusions of power and agency. Consider this world; the amount of suffering, pain, and death taking place in the time we waste here trading words is more than the rational mind is equipped to process. Heretics burned, slaves beaten, animals eaten alive, and sentient beings torn apart from within by rasping parasites. There are no hero or villain who can meaningfully divert the flow of suffering one way or another. You mock those who would be heroes, but you labor under the same delusion, that you matter. We are all destined to be forgotten, no matter how many you save, no matter how many you kill, things will always be the same as they always were. Still though, all your madness and bile might be of use to me, as filthy a creature you are. That is why I shall give you one chance to put down that sword, embrace your pitiful place in an uncaring world, " the priest grins, removing his mask with one hand and holding aloft the yellow sign with the other, "and throw yourself upon the liberating mercy of a god who does not care."
>>52960138"I am but a mercenary. I am flattered that you thought so highly of me but I am hardly to blame for the loss of your family. Business happened to be elsewhere at the time. It would be unfair of you to condemn me for being a kingdom away, ignorant of events happening on the other side of the kingdom, do you not think so?But since we are speaking face to face now, I have a proposition for you. I can see that you have done quite well for yourself since your loss but we both know that you still have much to do and that you are going to need skilled personnel to help you achieve your goals. You may have been unfortunate to have been unable to hire me in the past but now is your opportunity to do so. So, shall we discuss the future or would you rather try to kill me like you originally planned?"
>>52960138"Shit happens. It's how we react that defines us. You think YOU are special just because something awful happened to you and no one was around to help? That you learned some incontestable truth from that? I don't hate you nor do I blame you, I just pity the broken thing you've become."
>>52960138"Yes yes, someone killed your family. What is it with you orphans anyway? I killed my family too, but you don't hear me whining about it."
>>52960138"I can see you've been thinking about this crazy nonsense so long that there's probably not much I can do to convince you otherwise. Even if I ask you what your family would think of this, huh.But well. You'll get plenty more time to think about what you've done when I send you to hell."

I am sorry for what happened to your family. I'm sorry that I wasn't there for you. But I am now. How can I help?
>>52984224Well, yeah. A lot of the theme of the movie was him needing to learn to accept that he had new responsibilities these days.But saying 'No, untrained child. I will not take you into life or death situations' is not really one of his problems.

"Maybe you should take some personal responsibility instead of blaming others for your failings. I can only save so many villages at a time, you should pull your own weight or I can save none at all. I really don't care, I can make a pretty good life for myself where ever I am. You should learn to do the same."
>>52960138Oh...so you are THAT kind of people, those who couldn't find a better way to face the madness of this world than be an agent of it.Listen to me you lil' lad, I joined this "hero" bussiness because I wanted to sate my bloodlust in a way that did not hurt those I care about, they pointed jerks who attacked innocents and I went to kick their arses.Back then I was not aware of it, but as I grew in strength and smarts, the mood on this realm turned from pessimist to hopeful, people learnt that someone was bringing the fight against those abused their power and while I was busy hacking a corrupt noble apart for trying to kill the heir of Nowhereburg, people nobler than me decided to become proper heroes because they knew one could not be anywhere and knowing thanks to me that criminals could be bested, that tyrants could be defeated, that Evil could be stopped; and with that they could make this a better world.So are you mad because no one was there to spare your loved ones of this hellhole? I would fell sorry for you, if you didn't decide to make this place even more miserable! What I see here is not a victim of this unfair realm, just some bloke who raging against people who never asked for the misery you're commiting, and the people behind me see don't see you as a reminder of their failures, but as another madman bent to destroy whatever good is still alive in this world.You want make a monument? So I am. I going to make a monumental harm to your body for any poor sod who crossed ways with your excuse of villany that your family will not discover you in the Other Side and when I'm done with you, I am gonna put your body in the village closest to this battle so anyone there can learn that they don't need to fear scum like you anymore.
>Elijah Rowanhart:"Where was I? I was exactly where you are now. Bitter. Resentful at the ones who did me wrong. Raising my blade with malice at all who'd look down on me, the way so many "heroes" would surely look down on you. Curing myself of that hatred was a trial that spanned many years of hardship, and sadly our time here is too short to see you bear it. I won't insult you by asking you to change your ways, so my request is only this:Please don't think too ill of me for stopping you.">Rangrim Ungart:"Look, I'm terribly sorry for all this misunderstandin' but ye must have me mistaken. I'm still new tae all this 'hero business', I dun' really understand what makes a hero, nae even if they really exist. Only way tae find oot is for me to keep tryin' tae be one, I suppose. So fer the sake of learnin', could ye kindly stop tramplin' over all these honest folks I'm tryin' tae save?">Osborn Hilltopple:"Ah, so there's your problem. I should've known you'd be another one of those extremist types, the ones that see everything in black n' white. Listen here sunshine, of course nobody's perfect. I mean, if your idea of a bad role model is an absent hero, then what the fuck do you see yourself as? In what fucked up sense are you making up for your own suffering? If you can't buckle up and try to save others from your own suffering then you have no fucking right to speak ill of the ones who endure. The ones like me who drag themselves through the mud just to make it in time to avert the next crisis. So you go and enjoy your tantrum all you want, but don't you dare try and compare that childish destruction to the struggles that we men face, all so we can maybe - just for one day - be able to consider ourselves heroes."

>>52961296If the DM treats bad guys as actual people with thoughts and feelings as opposed to just "the bad guy of the campaign", then I fucking love a good heated verbal battle before the fight begins.

>>52960138"No, I call myself wizard for hire. Wanna hire me for killing your hero?"
>>52960138>>AshesQuickened Dispel, Maximized DisintegrateThen I call the DM a faggot because speech is a free action. I'm not Barry Allen and this isn't the goddamn Justice League, fuck outta here with this "because you're not omnipresent and bad things happen it's your fault" BS.
>>52960138>"Is that it? You saw the world crumbling around you and decided it's best to shake its pillars even more? You saw misery unfold and concluded that everyone must have their share? Your bitterness is proof of your own disgusting self-absorption, boy!">"I have suffered loss just as terrible as you have, and I would wager more! I have decided to stem the tide of misfortune that befalls my fellow brothers and sisters. I have concluded that we can never be save, and all we can do is to help eachother carry the burden. If you weren't so blind in your childish conceit, you would see that, as well.">"No, I am not a hero... Yet. True heroes are remembered, not celebrated. But I will have reserved a line in the books of history after I lived my life struggling through the worst that this world has to offer and sheltering my brothers and sisters from the worst of the cold. No, I am not yet a hero... I will be after I've purged your malevolence from this earth!"
>>52960138"yeah, well gods don't answer all prayers so you may as well start blaming them too. I may be a hero, but I am still mortal and cannot save all and be all.You on the other hand disgust me. You take all that pain and frustration and you just go around blaming until you have no one to blame but yourself.Do as I did when I was in your boots. Try your best to save someone else from this pain and take your vengeance on the scum who cause it.Now leave me, I got work to do."
"Loss. You wish to speak of loss like it is some competition? Laughable. You do not KNOW loss. The bodies of my past could be stacked high enough to link earth and heaven. Family, friends, homes, countries, hope, dreams, lost again and again and again. But do you know what I did after I lost everything so many times, after I was reduced to THIS!?""I took that loss, I piled it onto my shoulders, and I stepped out into the world to try and right what I was wronged! I took that pain, that agony, that suffering, and made it fuel to burn on a pyre of righteous fury against ALL who DARE harm innocents. I made it my life's mission, and now, my unlife's mission, to help everyone I could. But I am one man, one sword, one set of hands. I cannot do everything. Blame me if you wish, but instead of scorning me, how about you do something proper, and make yourself useful in this world of fiends and monsters, instead of adding to the pile."
Nay! Does the sun shine upon every blade of grass, nor every leaf of green? Does the wind fill every sail upon the salty waves? Does every babe born into this world have a teat of milk to suckle upon!? Nay! Nay! But do the grass and the leaves blame the sun for not throwing away the shade and shadow cast on them? Do the sailors blame the wind for not pushing their voyage forward! Do the starved babes blame their mothers for want of food!? Nay! Nay! We all have wants, we all have needs, we ALL have strife and pain and loss, but will you blame every man who trodden this land for not lending his arm to you in your time of need!? Will you blame every soldier for not marching to your rescue!? Will you blame the god themselves for not stepping from on high to intervene!? Nay! Nay! Blame not what cannot be done, when it cannot be done, where it cannot be done! Blame not those who knew not of your suffering, for your suffering! Blame not the sun or the wind! Blame the culprits. Blame the villains! Blame those, whose your families blood still dries upon their leather and steel! Take your fury, take your anger, take your will to strike out with your blade and aim it at those whose blades struck at you! If there, as you say, are no heroes to stand for you, then become the hero yourself!!
>>52985141I remember roleplaying magical girls and the viability of magical girl outfits in combat always came up with capes/ribbons/skirts being grabbed or caught on things. In the end I didn't really decide but I was leaning towards magical outfit material either being partially illusory and thus not even solid in the first place, some variant of frictionless so they couldn't actually get caught on things or grabbed, or just kind of seamlessly breakaway like a gecko tail. Then a year later I saw The Incredibles and figured I might consider the same explanation if I ran in a superhero game for capes.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯Then we take him out effortlessly and laugh about him.
>>52962258Almost all those heroes he killed were retired.
>>52960138What do you wish to hear? That I once believed myself to be a hero? That I felt the call of being a dark lord, that perhaps, once, I held the world by its throat? That for every good work that I did, I brought equal harm upon the innocents? That perhaps the greatest of what the dark mages knew of evil, they learned from me?
>>52960138i wasnt even born yet im fucking 15 and im still an apprentice you fucking edgelord
Nigga, get the fuck out my face, you talk like a fag and your shits all retarded. Damn, comin up to me like I'm some fucking Jesus shit, what the hell, look at you, dressed up like you going to some fuckin faggy as goth party, you Shredder ass lookin' mother fucker, aint this some real shit, you lose your family and then you go on and become some wack ass thug, killing other people's families? Damn, if that aint the stupidest shit done ever heard, man somebody best get this motherfucker OUT my face for I slap his wannabe Sauron, blacker than my neighborhood, bullshit ass, sob story spouting, skull on his GOD DAMN helmet, bitch ass till his head meets his asshole.
>>52960138That monologue kinda loses its impact if your character is just starting out.>holy fuck what do you expect me to do, I am level 2. I can barely take on a gang of goblins without some backup.
>>52960138Let me translate this for you angsty teens.>"You think people are worth saving do you? You call yourself a hero!?"CRAWLING IN MY SKIIIIIIN>"Where were you when I needed you? Where were you when they slaughtered my family, when they destroyed everything I hold dear. You let such atrocities happen. Vacant! Absent! No where to be seen!"THESE WOUUNDS DONT SEEEM TO HEAAAAL>"But I don't blame you, I just learned the truth. There are no such things as heroes. Only false idols. But I will make an Idol... no... a monument from the ashes of your failure."FEAAAR IS HOW I FAALLLL, CONFUUUSING WHAT IS REAAALl
>>52992915>WHY DIDN'T YOU GO INTO THE SEWER AND SLAY THOSE RATS, YOU COULD HAVE SAVED MY FAMILY!
>>52961283This sounds exactly like the sort of thing my Paladin would say
>>52963000Go play with your angry bionicles somewhere else.
>>52960138"I've seen a town of nearly a thousand be levelled by dragons as black as night, their breath an acid that melted through stone, bones, and flesh of children, women and men. The stench of their defilement lingers in my nostrils, the sight was haunting. As you saw it as the only way in your despair, I do not blame you either. Were it my kin, I no doubt would've turned to a path similar to yours, had I walked alone.Even if I have saved other towns, discovered ancient monuments and brought prosperity to a land, this memory is the strongest I have.But I am no hero, nor do I claim it. As I could not save this town from being ravaged, I could not save your family. Whilst I rage, I can still hear the render of bone and flesh of those who kept me from saving what I held dear. I realize now they could've made the wrong choice out of necessity, but I couldn't save them from the wrath I felt in the past. I have learned from practitioners of faith, that even the most wicked can be saved.If not...then come. Where I fall, there will be no ash for as long as the fires of my fury burn."Then attempt to reform him in case she beats him to submission.I tried.
>>52991496This one gave me an erection.
>>52960138my greedy, grudge-holding, True Neutral, borderline Evil ranger with horrible luck wouldn't be pissed''Oh fuck off already, mate. I don't give a rat's ass about your oh so miserable life, I've barely been able to survive in this shithole of a undead-filled continent, so forgive me for not being able to save your sorry ass when I was in as much danger as the rest of you fuckheads. Unlike you, I didn't fucken wait for some ''hero'' to save my ass, I had to work for it.And now you come cryin' to me, while you tried your hardest to hunt me down. And you know what? I wished I killed your parents! Then you'd have an actual reason to murder me, instead of angstin' like a child.''I have a severe lack of ugly, angry-looking rangers art
>>52980221Thanks for the appreciation goo sir. May these brave word of defiance aid in your fight.
You know, now that I think about it, this one doesn't hold up very well without A LOT of previous exposition.
>>52960138"You think YOU have had it rough?I can sense there is no purpose in talking to the likes of you, but I will say this: you are the same monster that destroyed your and my family that day. And now that I have a blade in my hand and friends at my side, I think... No. I know. You will be slain where you stand.I will have your head."
>>52960138 Your family was probably evil or something so I did nothing wrong.
>>52960138 A better questions would be why the fuck are you unsheating your sword like that. Are you trying to blind me with the perfect craftmanship of its blade or what?
>>52992304 FUCK OFF KREIA STOP SHOWING UP IN MY HEAD TO TELL ME I SUCK REEEEEEEEE
>>52997073 It basically doesn't make any sense unless your character actually had the chance of saving his family and didn't do it for some reason. Otherwise he is just some dude whining because the hero isn't omnipresent which makes me think he spent too much under the sun while wearing his edgy armor and his brain kind of got cooked.
>>52960138While I haven't saved everyone I wanted to, and I have many failures that I regret, there are many who I have saved. People with friend who think they owe me a favour. Some of them will think that avenging my death is repaying that favour.Maybe you can kill me. You won't be able stop all of their revenge attempts.So you have a choice. You could attack me. It won't end well for you.You can walk away and try to find happiness.Or you could join me. Do all you can to prevent others from suffering as you have. I've made heroes of people with blacker hearts than yours.
>>52960138Oh a hero? No, no, no. You could call me... a private contractor. I take care of people business for a price we both agree upon... I have five mouhts to feed back in my home. I can't risk the well being of my family by working for free. Listen, i'm sorry for your loss. I truly am! But i will ask you only once. Step aside. I intend to give this bag of candied cherries to my kids today and you won't stop me.
>>52960138"hey buddy, if i knew about your problem i would definitely helped, but even i cant be in so many places at once you know"
>>52960138"Well, *I* was going to make good use of your corpse too, my dear. No need to be so rude about it." - Neutral Evil Necromancer"Your family's death was unjust, but you do not understand why. You were put to test. You failed. We are a punishing arm, not saviors. You could have straightened your resolve. You could have brought Justice in this world, but you did not understand who she was. She was never meant to save those who cannot save themselves - only punish the guilty. They will face her. As you will too, now. Weep before the cold, true face of Justice! Bow to her, to the ground, living or dying!" - Lawful Evil paladin
>>52960138"You're a weakling, and I'm going to put you down. You should have died with your family, because your every act shames them. When I kill you, you'll go to Hell, forever - they'll know you betrayed them in word and in deed, and you'll never see them again.""This is the end for you. What comes next is forever."
>>52991496Quality post, anon
>>52960138>"You think people are worth saving do you? You call yourself a hero!?"Sorry mate, I think you have the wrong person on both counts.
You fucking cunt waffling peice of shit, I'm 8. I wasn't around when that shit happened to your sorry ass. *kyros*
>>52960138"I didn't ask for your goddamn life story, I asked if you were the third ranked assassin."
>>52960138"Who the fuck do you think I am? I only do it for the money you nerd."
>>52991496>Do the sailors blame the wind for not pushing their voyage forward!Yes, and colorfully so.
>>52960138"I never cared about justice, and I don't recall ever calling myself a hero... I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won't hesitate... If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!"
>>52960138Current character:"..Look, I'm no hero. I'm just trying to strive to the end of the month. And you're clearly overthinking this whole thing. You're extremely wrong on so many levels, that I if I had a whole week to list why what you just said is retarded, I wouldn't make in time to get through the first half of said list. Now: Be a dear, and get some chairs as I'll go to prepare some tea, because by all means, we have a -long- talk to do."Then she'll proceed to nobody is fucking omnipresent, everyone is bound to make errors, and why he's wasting his time to just be an emo edgelord.My other character I played before this one, wouldn't understand a thing that he said, assume he's just sad, and give him a big warm hug, telling him that everything is fine and can be fine.
>>53008758>My other character I played before this one, wouldn't understand a thing that he said, assume he's just sad, and give him a big warm hug, telling him that everything is fine and can be fine.This is adorable.
>>52960138Well, so sorry for your parents not being strong enough, boyo. That's bound to happen, in this world. Avenge them or something, don't look at me.
>>52960138"I don't care about saving the world, the only thing I care about is fighting strong guys. If I save the world while doing so it's just a consequence!"
"The truth? Ah, my dear boy, you're brain seems to have cooked inside that little tin of yours. Perhaps there are no heroes; but then why do so many seem so elated when they spot the fluttering of my robes? What is an idol, but one who is revered? Their praise is by no means false. There is no feat falsely attached to my name, and it is those things for which they cheer.A hero? That may be what they call it, but that is not why they are grateful. They are grateful because I slew the griffins terrorizing their flocks. They are grateful because I slew the undead who rose in the east. They are grateful because I slew the dragon, whose massive wings would shade the earth before permanently scorching the land black.All of this with my power, mine alone. King Deugan pays tribute for my services, though I could take it all if I wished. But the point being, I do *not* wish. Not because I dislike material gain, but because *I do not wish*.That is the crux of it. Your family slaughtered? Everything you hold dear destroyed? So it goes! I may be called a hero, but I am myself! I've no obligation to anything but my own desires, and you ask such nonsense of me?Do you think only those who wield chunks of metal have undergone hardship? My hands are soft not due to an easy life, but because I slay my enemies before they retaliate! If I am no hero, then why ask of my part in these things? Why have you not seized power with your own hands? Drag them back from the dead, or step into the realm they rest; do something other than pointing that toy at one who does have the resolve to do what it takes.I may not be a hero, but I am no false idol. My strength is my own. If I will it, I shall save; if I condemn, I shall kill. There will be no monument to your failure, just the ashes of some fool driven mad by his own weakness."
>>53009650I prefer old Goku.
>>52960138>"Where were you when I needed you? Where were you when they slaughtered my family, when they destroyed everything I hold dear.""Uh...when did this happen?">"Ten years ago. The battle of - ""Dude! Ten years ago I was 17. That's, like, ten and a half in elf years. I wasn't there because I was a child! I was still living with my dad learning how to read and write and take orders at the inn and stuff!">"It's the principle of the thing!""The principle of the thing?! What, did you expect me to gather an army of tweens? Would we have toddlers riding on dogs as cavalry?">"But I don't blame you.""Good!">"I just learned the truth. There are no such things as heroes. Only false idols. But I will make an Idol... no... a monument from the ashes of your failure.""...you know that's retarded, right?">"What?! You dare?!""Yeah I dare! You're being stupid! 'Oh, there's no such thing as heroes, so I might as well make myself a fucking villain! That'll show 'em!' You know that sound stupid, right?">"I am not a villain! I am righteous!""Righteous people don't dress like that.">"It is symbolic of the darkness within me!""It's symbolic of the fact that you're a villain.">"FINE! I'M A VILLAIN!""Ah-hah! And I'm opposing you! So that makes me, logically, a hero!">"...I'm going to start hitting you now. I'm not sure when I'll stop.""Yeah, but I'm a hero.">"No.""Admit it! There are heroes! Like me!">"...fuck it, sure. You're a hero. Now stand still.""Make me!"And from there it devolves into your classic agile but fragile hero verses slow but strong and tough villain fight.
Brey'Kah Fourhands: "Boss? This the guy?" *Diane, nearby, nods* "Man in armor over there, Sanden, he knew about what happened. Told all us this when we found out what you were doing." *Sanden, a runepriest nearby, nods* Normally he or Boss does the talking. But this too stupid for him. This my job. When your family killed? Me in desert. No memories, no home. Lost for unknown time. Found maybe two years later. Then, hired by First Boss, and then Boss. Sanden convince Second Boss I worth hiring, so I stayed. First Boss was still trying to get his work going. Sanden was spending time with Big God Lady, who was once Big God Man, but not supposed to mention that to her. Couldn't leave without offending God Lady. Also, much smaller, he says. Not likely big help. Second Boss still learning how to use brain-things to pick up rocks. Not know tricks enough to fight worth a damn. Only one could is Kepsek. He was busy being statue at the time, i think. He's still not better, but he learned to move without walking. We spend time, getting better. I find place to fight, and then find First Boss, and Boss. Four years ago. Then, we killed giant spider and evil tall point-ears. Then, I kill giant king. Kill other giant kings. Stop stupid ritual and hold 'Primordial' to ground until priest decide to send him back, when Diane ask very nicely. Maybe three years ago, could have stopped village. One year ago, could have saved you myself. But still don't know how to move in time. Maybe I fix you when i learn. But for now, I hold you to ground, until you say sorry, or stop speaking."
Jack Luniscious (ne Jack Gurgeh): "Finally, first person to admit i'm a hero, and he's one that immediately says there aren't any. There's no bloody pleasing some people. Look, Durances suck. I had mine, I'm sure yours was shit. You're in a lot of pain, you lost some folks, I bleed for you. I can count two dozen bodies dead by my direct orders, and a few dozen others that I never could've seen coming. All because I must've not been a hero. I couldn't be the good guy: I wanted money, i wanted power, so, must be evil. Like the bitch i gutted for destroying the Freehold and letting the Lord of Tales snack on some people, and kill a lot of innocents. I make a new compound for the freehold, people stay out because they think i'm evil, they die. I find out their leader is in league with the Lord of Tales, try to tell them, one of 'em walks out with a goddamn bomb vest and tries to give me a hug. The Winter folk put out a contract on my head and the heads of my people. I end up holding those assholes hostage, with my death and the promise of them being caught out in the cold when they've got a gun to my head, and I'm STILL the villain. I march into the Baron of Song's fuckin' house, haul him out by his ears, and shoot his fuckin' brains out and lose 14 goddamn men and one of my best fuckin' friends, I'm still the goddamn villain. And then, I go in with two buddies, rip out the lord of tale's fuckin' heart, and stab it through with cold fuckin' iron, burning away my hand as I hold it, and STILL: Here you FUCKING are. Now, you got out of your mess, lost your shit, and now, it's my fuckin' fault. And I'm sure, when I and my friends here tear your kingdom down around you, someone will blame me too. Fuck this nonsense. Any gambler knows when a game is rigged. And here I am, ready to win again. Last chance to reconsider."
>>52960138Joseph Danger (Ne: None of your fuckin' business. My father is dead and his name can die with him.): "Killing a tyrant. Then, marching out, and trying to do the same in every whackhole dictatorship, cultish outpost, marauder village, and all the other fuckin' horrible places on the entire goddamn east coast. We worked our way OUTWARD. Maxton city was a fucked up place, and it made people like me. And I did my best to help whoever I can. Now, my job, the only job I am good for, is dealing with tinpot dictators like you. And we're gonna start by me taking this fuckin' machete, slicing myself up, and watching you fuckers take the pain for me. Let's start with a hand, and then you and I, we can start understanding each-other." *Joseph Danger draws his machete, made from the bone of a long-dead Kaiju, and hacks off his left hand. It begins to grow back, and a lance of pain heads to his target's wrist*
Yeah. I do, and I totally do. Like, I call myself that often.Probably elsewhere helping other people.And no, YOU let those atrocities happen by not being strong enough and...Really? FUCKING, REALLY?Wow, you know what, if there are gods I'm sure they're laughing their ass off at your shit right now. Oooh, ashes idols spooky anger man~. I'mma build an idol out of your severed head and probably piss on it.>Then comes the charge and the battle cry. In this case the battle cry is simply:CHEERS CUNT!!!>My most recent fighter loudly and often claims to be a hero but he's also not taking that title too seriously.
>>52960138Hero? Bitch, this is revenge for sister, her husband, and their newborn child. I was gonna teach that kid ALL of my moves.*Drops into the Child of Shadow Stance.*
"I literally started doing this hero shit after that all happened, man. What, do you want me to hero in a time machine?"
>>53011670This is gold.

You messed with my family and my friends and my kingdom." *generic tough guy neckcrack here* "Now let's 'ave the ol' Warden do 'is work and execute criminals--like i always 'ave.">50 year old drunkard ex-bandit who was given the title of warden after proving himself to be rather trust worth as the head of all guards through out the entire kingdom.
>>52960138Rastien, "The Hand Of Pelor": "My good man, of course I am a hero! Haven't you heard the songs, seen the plays, listened to the stories? I slayed dragons, cleansed the tombs of necromancers, and vanquished demons and devils. The light of my blade and my armor shined out across the land, and all knew that Pelor truly loved them, when they heard of my good works. But perhaps, you're a Jealous type. Got some second-rate hero who botched the job, I'm sure, and sad your village didn't survive whatever bad people he was supposed to stop, but now, now is what matters. Now, you're in black armor, with horns, monologing about something boring and promising destruction. That's what villains DO. I kill villains. That's what *I* do. But don't worry. Your death is gonna make a hell of a song. I know just the bard, and he's already got my gold. Stalwart allies? Let us cleanse this land of the taint... of EVIL!"Rest of the party "For heaven's sake, why do we ever let him talk?"
>>52960138Where was I? Somewhere else, I imagine. Saving another family, another village, another lost soul. Did they deserve it more than yours? No, of course not. You both deserved to be saved. But I was there, not here, and so by happenstance they were the ones who were saved. It's not fair, and it's not right. But we don't live in a world that's either of those things. So, what are you going to do about it? Because maybe you can kill me, and maybe you can't. But either way, you've accomplished nothing of value. People will still die, their loved ones will still mourn, and the world will still be unfair and cruel. Or maybe, just maybe, you could do something about it. Because that's all you need to do be a hero. You look into an unfair world, and you say "no. This isn't how it has to be." You fight to make sure nobody else ever has to suffer the way you and your family did. You go and save those lost souls, knowing you'll never be able to save them all - and you do it anyway. So make your choice. Put that sword away and go do something useful, or lay on. Because right now, all I see is someone standing in the way of the next family in need, and I don't intend to let you stop me from helping them.

all this autistic rp really makes me want to fire up the ole roll20
>>53008479Don't contradict him while he's on a roll.
>>52960138>My fallen Paladin would have a few words to say"Nice (edgy) speech, now let me top it. There is no inherent good or evil- what is good for one faction is bad for another. The world is harsh and uncaring. The strong eat the weak. Kingdoms rise and fall. Everything ends with enough time. In times of chaos people band together to survive, in times of peace they plot to undermine each other for their own self interest. And finally there is no justice in this world but what you make yourself. So instead of raving and shouting at this cruel uncaring world questioning why it didn't care or help when everything you love was destroyed, why not instead ask yourself- how could you let this happen to the ones you love. What have you done to defend or failing that- avenge them? You blame your misfortunes on those who would have helped if they could, while you- present for the destruction of your existence- did nothing. Where were you when your family was slaughtered? Running in terror? Hiding like a coward to preserve your own life? Why weren't you strong enough to save them? Why weren't you more vigilant? And why should anyone but you care about your responsibility- and your failure. The strong eat the weak; now which are you?"
>>52960138The Hero must come from within, child. I can never be your Hero, for that task is yours. The failure to save your family is your own. Embrace this and become the Hero. Avenge your family and all you held dear.

>>52960138"I literally burned a town to the ground not even a week ago because they fucked up a trade deal.I'm a war profiteer, who empties prisons, hops them up on local drugs, and then releases them on hamlets so i can take the credit for 'putting down rebellion'.If i could, I would build a stand around your monument, and charge people for a glance.But hey, didn't know there was a cemetery around here. I'll pay for it's location....No? ah, damn, well that's on you. Also who slaughtered your family, and are they for hire?"
>>53016675i wager that the hebrews are at fault for this
>>52965700+1Had as something similar happen once, and the GM actually changed my alignment from good to neutral because of this reaction, because he was a fucking faggot.You kill the fucked up idiot, who is willing to kill someone people revere as a hero, because someone died when he wasn't around. This kind if crazy needs to die, and will garantueed ping evil if the GM isn't just sprinkling him full of DMPC snowflake juice. He will hurt someone, sooner or later, so you are better off stopping him now.
>>52960138"I'm a little insulted by the cynicism but I'm glad your getting out and become involved in improving your community."
>>52960138I have never called myself a hero, others call me that. I merely do not correct them on the matter. Also perhaps wishing that I was. In any event the gods have seen fit to 'gift' this one. A fate that is what passes for humor among their kin and one that means I can not truly loose this fight. It is to kill a future dark lord before he full comes into his power. I have killed a great many people trying do just that, but gave up after finding out just who that future dark lord is. Yup, you guessed it. It is the target of your irrational hate right before you. I just wanted to make the gods happy. Turns out they are petty, cruel, and a great many other things. We are not sinners in the hands of angry judges but rather mere playthings to them.My failure is in turning aside from fate, but you are the gods trying to 'give me a helping hand'. Your victory would be my 'success'. You think that you have what it takes to make my greatest possible success come true? Because I would rather keep on failing, living, and trying to go off the great script. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4ThPAW5sd0P.S yes the last PC I played was the above. He did not start that way however. Lets just say that there was DM quackery.
>>52960138Dude, calm down. Even a hero has to take a shit sometimes.
>>52960138"Eh...in all honesty, you have no idea how spot-on you are.I'm a new arrival to this world. When your family was put to the sword, i was in the eternal void between cosmos, looking for another world to explore. When your home was razed to the ground and your lands salted, i was in the omnichromatic barrier between this world and the cosmos, negotiating with a particularly suspicious nonexistent helix.I wasn't there, since i couldn't be there. Nor did i know of this.I've never said i was a hero. I'm just wandering all creation, looking for a world, where my family could live in peace.If you think seeing your family die, when you could have at least tried something, is bad, what am i, chopped poison removal organ?I watched my family descend into madness, the very land itself twisting their minds beyond their natural reach. And the only thing i could do was abandon them to their fate, in hopes of finding another land, one where no earth, no sky would cause madness.I'm probably too late. But i can still at least try.Where was your sword when your family was killed?"
"You're right, heroes do not exist. There's only people that do what needs to be done.And if I have to run you through, so be it."
>>52960138"I strongly disagree."
Do you think if you'd have been saved that you could have wrought an equivalent amount of good works to the evil you wreak now? I sincerely doubt it.What about you, yours, or your motivations, then, ever deserved to be saved?Even should you best me in combat, the truth remains that you are a blight on the land. Your only merit to this world is a strength that benefits yourself alone. The only way you will ever prove me wrong is to lay down your weapon and make good works. Save yourself first.
"How many children have cried out in horror and sworn revenge against the world of absent heroes and atrocity you created for THEM, swine? If it's even one, then you know the only thing your sword is good for - the one thing you have left to do.""Go on - be an hero."
>>52960138"Well let's go get them back"*opens portal to hell*I dunno I just like to make friends with the bad guys, at least the ones that talk.
>>52960138Your soul is too weak to be moral in an imperfect world?I'll prove your power is equally flawed!

>>52960138"Hero? Old Crecus is no hero. He simply follows the closest thing to heroes you'll ever find. Men and women who do what they can where they can because they can. They are not gods, only a hand full of souls who know they can make even the smallest change to someones life. They've toppled empires, defeated hordes 10 times their number, and brought the damned to see the light. They do good wherever they go, but even they cannot be everywhere at once. What you see as a hero can never be fully become reality. Even Crecus does good, with potions for those he can afford to help. These are the closest to heroes you will ever find, and if they are not good enough, than you are far beyond reason.
>>52960138>How does your character respond?"Good. Reach heaven through violence!"
>>52960138With swift, brutal violence the likes of which can't be shown on such a christian chinese knitting stage.
>>52960138"Talk is cheap">*Blam*
>>52960138Well it looks like you have already made your own mind about this (he would sigh). Well let me tell you this. I've been around longer than you have, kid. And I've seen my share of troubles. You're not the only one who knows what it's like to lose somebody. And It looks like neither of us has led a charming life, have we? Still, it's not that bad. At least you and I have been lucky enough to live till this point. Let me give you some advice. Forget about revenge. The fate of those who seek revenge is grim. It's tragic, You will end up suffering and hurting yourself even more. Even if you do succeed in getting revenge, the only thing that remains is emptiness. So you can either walk away and better yourself with something constructive. Or we can just cause more misery here. (at this point I would draw my blade) It is your choice if you wish to continue the cycle.
>>52960138((From my recently ended WOIN campaign))"Listen pal, I'm just an actor. A good one who happens to be tough enough to survive against the triads, tongs, mafia, and whatever else. But Rewind the Bounty Hunter is still just that, an actor. A man can't be everywhere at once. But a man can do the best good he can wherever he is.But do you really mean to blame me because I was so many feet away or saving another life? Then you're even more selfish then my character."*Turns towards his cameraman*"Dieter, roll the tapes. I'm going to either save a man or end an idiots career and take him to jail. Either way, we'll end the segment with 'Rewind says' segment."
>>52960138Look, I think you're suffering from survivor guilt. I think you're trying to kill 'heroes' to make yourself forget the pain of your family dying. They're watching from the afterlife, you know. Do you think they're proud of you? Think about how they'd react if they saw you like this. Okay?
>>52993337And now you piss on bionicles.I'll kick you in the nuts, fucker.
>>52960138"I never intended to save anyone, I'm certainly not the hero you speak of, nor an idol. If my actions help someone, that's just a consequence. Not an obligation.All of my life, I haven't been trying to save anyone but myself. If you want a hero, a martyr, it won't be me... so, let's make a martyr out of you, shall we?"
>>52960138"I honestly do not care for you, your kind or your village. You have chosen your path, and I have chosen mine. These people have lived in harmony with the wilderness for generations, and our bond of blood is stronger than the threat of death. I will die, or you will die; the Earth shall feast either way, and neither of us are more than a fleeting moment wherein Her Life took the shape of man, before returning to Her busom. I have chosen oath; you have chosen self-pity."
I made mistakes, I admit that. But I know,now more than ever.That this is the path I must walk.Even if it scorches my skin and crumbles beneath my feet. I will never give up; for I made a promise in the shadows of the pyramid of photep. A promise to my brothers.A promise I intend to keep.All is not..yet....DUST
>>52960138"Shut the hell up.'We needed you', 'Where were you?', 'Why didn't you come?'.I hear those words everytime I try to catch some sleep sleep. I can see them screaming in anguish when I do. You wanna hate me cause I couldn't save your kin? Be my guest, hate me until your dying breath if it gives you solace.But if you would ruin the lives of innocents just to make a point, you're no better than whatever took your family from you. And if it's any consolation, I'll avenge them all by stoping you."
>>52960138"Look, friend, I'm no hero. A merc who isn't afraid to get his hands dirty but has occasional bouts of conscience? Sure. But not a hero. I'm just a simple dead man trying to unlive his unlife one day at a time, and if I help a few people along the way? Hey, bonus."
>>52960138"Time to see your god, whoever that son of a bitch might be."
>>52960138"For not saving you and your family, I apologize with all my heart. Nevertheless, I cannot let you pass. I won't insult you by telling you to walk away. Your weapon, please draw it."
>>52960138>How does your character respond?
