Potential Character - Brain storm pit


#21

[quote=“Surrealfish”]So I’m probably looking at playing the Townie surgeon, Someone who would rather everyone put down their guns and talk like civilised folk. Real easy like.

An alternate PC concept would be an Arcologist kicked out because he wanted to experiment with MAD SCIENCE, and now seeks out wounded militia to attach AMAZING MARVELS OF TECHNOLOGY to. FOR SCIENCE![/quote]

Ooh, how about both?? That could be his big secret…reminds me of the recent Dr Who western episode…

While still in my 33AR larpover, I’m thinking possibly a Townie, or a Courier/Wanderer.

Will want to have some help fleshing out a character with name and history/connections and especially help getting my head around all the skills (including delegating them through my character), at some point though. Would anyone be free sometime to do this with me?

Am thinking someone mostly non-combatant, though.

I’m very happy to talk you through it all. Some of the feedback from 33 also has me thinking of some additions to the skill set for non-combatants.

Hi Sophie, I’m coming down to Wellington for Hydra. Hopefully there’s time for a conversation …

Excellent, after we’ve both sufficiently recovered from 33AR could we organise something?

I could do a combatant if I get some sort of informal training. I was thrown into the deep end a little with 33AR and would like to actually know how to larpfight :slight_smile:

Nick Pitt and Nick Cole have started an informal get together group for sword practise in the Botanical Gardens. I’ll invite you to the Facebook group.

I’m playing an Arcologist. Someone who grew up in a slum, the sort of person you usually wouldn’t find outside of her comfort zone of decrepit urban decay.

Ooh, I’d be interested in that too! I don’t plan for my character to do a lot of fighting, but she will know how to defend herself and kill things for food, so I’d better get in some practice…

I also appear to not be in that group which is probably why I haven’t been hearing about the practices. Good exercise as well.

Now they need to incorporate nerf gun practice.

So if anyone is looking for a character idea I’m playing a bounty hunter of sorts that potentially could have a prisoner.

Don’t worry my character has lots of conflict so it’s not one of those I’m stuck as a prisoner kind of things.

Ideally there could be a rivalry or respect between them, possibly even a potential love interest down the line. I kind of expect that just because we are at odds at the beginning of the game doesn’t mean it will remain that way.

Of course you might want to play someone really nasty in which case I could work with that. I was thinking of more of a Han Solo type. A smuggler who had to dump cargo and is on the run looking to earn back the money they owe but sadly the bounty hunters have caught up with them. Or something similar, rogue with a good heart sort of thing. But I also don’t want to dictate a character to anyone so if you like the basic idea I’m keen to fudge my reasons for “escorting” you to make the whole thing work.

So if anyone is keen let me know (PM or something) and if not then I’m sure someone in the crew will have fun trying to not get caught by me.

So I’m thinking of playing an older, wandering, grumpy badass. Mechanically speaking a Wanderer, but he basically roams around in a big circuit, as a combo postman/tinker. Bit of a loner, but secretly loves catching up with people whenever he’s back in town, telling stories, sharing news of what’s happening in the world.


#32

So… my character is another wanderer type, with some kind of cargo transport. I’m thinking a beat up truck that I work hard to keep fixed and in petrol. Kind of a Han Solo/Mal Reynolds kind of thing who will take payment to deliver stuff and maybe do a bit of smuggling. This means I can potentially know a bunch of people, so if you think your character may have paid to have something sent or collected or… shipped… hit me up :slight_smile:


#33

Oh, and if anyone wants to be the Chewie to my Han that would be awesommmmme


#34

If anyone’s interested in being part of a sketchy operation based in the Arcs that involves exploiting the supposedly non-existent opportunities to get in and out of them, get in touch with me. :slight_smile:


#35

Ok so im looking at playing an ex runaway slave with “Various skills” including a healer background, now im trading on ALL my skills to survive.


#36

I think I put this up on another thread, but might as well repeat it here for any possible connections…I’ll be playing Tic, a trader from the Candymen Tribe, who live “a few days away” from the town. Maybe to connect with some other characters, she’s here to pick up a delivery, or someone has something for her that she doesn’t know about?? She’s lived with the Candymen for years but doesn’t remember anything before that…

I suspect others from The Candymen have passed through the town, or even are regular visitors/traders there, so some of the townies (particularly the Doc) and/or other regular couriers or tinkers or whatever might know Tic or at least be somewhat familiar with the tribe. We’re friendly, easy-going and we’ll trade anything for anything if it’s worth something to someone. Don’t try to take over our digs though; we like our playground and we want to stay (-:

We’re always looking for new friends, new food and new blood…


#37

I will be riding shotgun as Jenni’s Chewie/Jayne Cobb/sidekick!!

So… Wanderer Hired Gun, and said gun will be huge. Also my character may be selectively mute, and a bit dim, but sharp about weapons/smuggling/hired gun things.


#38

I can definitely give you a slave kingdom to have run from, but you will be one of the very very lucky ones to get away. Otherwsie you can make up your own. It’s not like the world won’t be full of slavers.


#39

I’ll be playing a townie who wants to form a government / trade network / mutual protection league. Think Charles / Greg from 1970’s survivors, or the Mayor from The Wild Shore.

Toying with two ideas:
First one’s of an Arc who never actually wanted to be there (someone else conscripted her in, I guess, would be best explanation of how she got there), she fell in with the wrong crowd (possibly Savages?), and managed to flee from her Arc to so-called freedom.
So she finds this place, tries to get in with the Townies or the higher ups… but really doesn’t like authority of any kind. Possibly a little sneak/survive-at-all-costs kind of gal, or someone who’s a kickass craftsperson but has pretty shocking social skills.

Second idea was of a wonderfully humble Townie, a farmer, so she’d possibly provide the local area with quite a fair amount of food? I figure this could make her quite well known but I’m thinking she just considers herself to be helping out where she can, no big deal to her really. The more she can help, the better.

I guess now I’m just throwing out feelers to get an idea of who would be interested in either.

So… anyone interested in either of these girls? I do have more backstory cropping up but would like to know interest before I decide on either one.
