Character asks are open today as I’m stuck at work until 7. Obarius, Odek, Arnagan or Jere.
Me too me too. But uh Tam/Maridyn/Emma/Melendy/SEELIE.
Varill, Williert, Harry.
Cidro and Robert, if people are interested!
I’ll play, though you may have to wait til tomorrow night for answers. Questions for Malcolm and Entyle.
Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result! I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.
Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.
To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Ferguson and Police Militarization.
Sadly the news from this disaster has hit Australia. I know pretty much everything going on there and I’m absolutely disgusted.
It happens here too, tbf. This is an incredibly enraging video though.
That it does, but I take a small measure of comfort in the fact that, while still sickening, at least our police don’t look like they’re about to invade some random country with overpowered and completely unnecessary hardware.
true that does add a layer of horrifying
I don’t if I’d say that’s the MOST wretched part of this whole thing, but the Police are NOT soldiers. They are supposed to protect their citizens, not wage war on them. The should NOT have access to tools of war. Period.
Allow me my sincerest apologies. In my haste for seasoning, I requested a place in Stranglehold to investigate the activities of Dark Iron Dwarves docked there, and to assist the local authorities. This was a mistake. Some of the Crown’s champions, myself included, sought a peaceful resolution to what appeared to be a simple barroom brawl gone terribly wrong. Tragic though it was, there was little need for escalation. However, among those gathered were a few Gilneans, one of them a guardsman of the city, intent on behaving like fools and thugs. Intimidating the people (I believe in an attempt to coerce false testimonies), Screaming at diplomats, and finally attacking a large, well prepared force in unfavorable terrain, forcing all of us into a hopeless conflict with little chance of victory or escape.
I am embarrassed to admit that we were handily routed, myself defeated by a Dark Iron sorcerer and his companions. I have shamed the House of Marshal, and I have shamed the Dawnguard, an order to which, I have not even been accepted. I humbly ask your forgiveness, and beg your approval to return to Dawnhold. A man of the Dawn, belongs in the Dawn. I see that now. I am yours to command, save your dismissal of me back to Honorgarde. I swear to you, on my honor as a son of The House of Marshal, I shall not repeat this shameful mistake.
