Bumping this game ad for awesomeness. I'm still considering whether I can manage the advertised posting rate, however.

For those of you who want to do a little prep for this game, I highly recommend tracking down Ralph Bakshi's "Wizards", a weird, psychedelic 70s animated fantasy that fits the tone and art style of this game perfectly (and even the post-apocalyptic setting, to a certain extent). Also, everyone should watch "Wizards" at some stage. Just make sure you've ordered in some pizza before you do. It's a pizza type of movie.

When I read it the two things that came to mind were...
"Heavy Metal" obviously and...
"Fist of the North Star"

Application
left-aligned image
Name: Kölvin Témoin, but folks just call him 'Froggy' on account of his facial deformities and the distance of his long jumps.

Concept: Bit of a smartass, but especially going for an unarmed Psi Knightgood with his hands and a local tough-guy-for-hire. Spent most of his life in Violet City when he's not guarding caravans, but he wasn't born here. Met a nice-looking girl - a buxom brunette by the name of Calyx - from a recent trip and was planning a job with her that involved exploring parts near the Black City.

That is, until she disappeared.

Want: Get his girl back; if he gets enough cash to build his own business (escort services - no, not that kind!) while he's at it, all the better.

Need:

Been reading through a few pages of the pdf you linked @Inuvash and this idea kept popping up in my head!

I loved the "Pet as your main character concept and Character is your companion" idea. I also very much love the future world clerics of old forgotten technology and in this case, sunscreen chemicals would be hilariously appropriate. Here's my riff off that and character concept/application. Very interesting world!

Application
Name: Avobena (Sprite) and Mexoryl (Centaur)

left-aligned image

Concept: A duo that has traveled for years together and serves the same deity.
 



Avobena - Priestess of Parasol
Avobena's charge as a Priestess of Parasol is to guide travelers and protect them on the roads through the Ultraviolet Grasslands. Uninterested in the settled down life of a franchised road-side shrine, her wanderlust drives her through the lands. The tiny fairy rides on a diminutive, but comfortably appointed howdah atop her protector, Mexoryl.

Mexoryl - Protectorate of Parasol
Mexoryl joined the Protectorate of Parasol in his youth and made excellent marks in the Brotherhood. The Protectorate serves as security for shrines and personal protection for wandering priestesses. The burly centaur was assigned to protect Avobena ever since her anointment ceremony. His commitment to the goddess Parasol is rivaled only by his loyalty to Avobena.

Want:
Avobena wants to convert and grow the faith and worship of Parasol. She is proselytizing and collecting followers as she travels. That is the mission of the Church of Parasol and her aim, as well. Mexoryl serves this same purpose and upholds the protection of Avobena as something worth dying for.

Need:
Avobena - Her wanderlust is matched only by her desire for followers. She hopes to find powerful artifacts and relics to propel her fame as a priestess and have her own temple someday.
Mexoryl - Is secretly in love with Avobena. It is forbidden for the Protectorate to consort with Priestesses. Plus, there's the size problem...

Name: ᛉᛞᛖᚠᛩᚹᚨᛒᛪᛒᚨᚹᛩᚠᛖᛞᛉ

Concept: A unique life-form rumoured to have been found in the Spectrum Crossing and renowned for the alien music it produces through unknown means. Seemingly semi-domesticated, it is allowed to wander amidst the convoy of Kuhravane'er as it pleases and has been known to even answer to their call on occasion. At night it wanders to the most central point of the camp and fills the area with a soothing, chime-like music. When spoken at it displays some degree of awareness, the crystal on its back glimmering in certain patterns or else ringing in reply. How much it understands, whether it is truly capable of communicating and why it is so drawn to Kuhravane'er remain a mystery. The guards have shared stories amongst themselves, passed from one mercenary to the other, of strange nights with the sky filled with opalescent lights when it can be spotted returning to camp from the wilds. Others speak of having been caught staring into its large eyes for hours unknown, only to be 'awakened' by a shout or a jostle.

Want: To wander and wonder in the safety of a group
Need: ᛏᛟᚠᛁᚾᛞᚨᚾᛖᚹᚺᛟᛋᛏᛁᛗᚢᛋᛏᚺᚨᚡᛖᚨᚾᛖᚹᛒᛟᛞᚤᛏᚺᛖᛋᛈᛁᛞᛖᚱᛁᛋᛞᚤᛁᚾᚷᛁᛗᚢ ᛋᛏᚺᚨᚡᛖᚨᚾᛖᚹᛒᛟᛞᚤᛞᚤᛁᚾᚷᛁᛋᚨᚷᛟᚾᚤᛁᛗᚢᛋᛏᚺᚨᚡᛖᚨᚾᛖᚹᛒᛟᛞᚤᛁᚹᛁᛚᛚᚺᚨ ᚡᛖᚨᚾᛖᚹᛒᛟᛞᚤ

I was listening to this while dreaming up my character.

Would you be willing to consider third party content? I haven't looked at it yet, but if there's a setting to use it in it's this one and I'm willing to make the purchase and give you the full details. I'm fairly certain I can make my character concept work without it so I'm not hinging on having access to this, I just don't think there would ever be a setting more appropriate for giving it a try.

I didn't like my character concept after giving it a second read this morning, so I'm currently reworking it.

Catching up after being out for the weekend, and feeling a little under the weather today.

@Danshii: Awesome! ^^

@Behelit: I think for this game, I'd prefer to stick with published materials, refluffing what we need to, and hashing out homebrew out on the side. I'm generally pretty wary of 3rd party class/race stuff.

@All: Awesome characters by everyone! I'm going to put the end date as this Saturday coming up, the March the 25th at 11:59PM EST. It's a soft deadline. If someone needs me to - I can nudge it back.

Totally understandable! I wound up not being super in love with the end result of my character and decided to go another direction anyway, so it's just as well.

Hey @Everyone! Luckily you are still sticking around here with the caravan. I had to hide between the rocks below the Citadel for a while... Those cats had exposed me to the guards! I see no point in hiding any detail about me anymore. I put everything in my final application:

https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthre...09#post8725509

Just don't tell anyone about me being here! I'll be of pretty proper use for you and the caravan... You'll see!

@Oghain: I can hear ᛉᛞᛖᚠᛩᚹᚨᛒᛪᛒᚨᚹᛩᚠᛖᛞᛉ talking to me... I also feel thoughts, but no thoughts as I know them from humans. They do not seem to make any sense, but there is a voice I seem to understand. I feel a weird familiarity and trust! What was the question? Ah! What I did exactly so that I had to hide? Let's hide together in the caravan. I think we both could need some company. Then I will tell...

@Arjent: Strangely, I can't read anything from Avobena's or Mexoryl's minds, what is it that blocks their thoughts from me?

@DanshiiWithWulfs: I can sense that Kölvin feels as lost as me deep inside... Maybe I'm wrong But I'm sure we'll have a lot of experience to share throughout this journey...

@telcontar: Great recommendation! Tried to watch the movie last night, but not much got past the haze in my brain But what made it left some nice impressions! I'll try again this night...

@JohnStone: Come Ell, you seem to be in trouble as well... You can hide with me and ᛉᛞᛖᚠᛩᚹᚨᛒᛪᛒᚨᚹᛩᚠᛖᛞᛉ in the caravan until it sets off

@GodBob: Enoki strongly reminds me of one of the weirdest trips I recently had

@DialPforPickles: Oh! Luca! I hadn't expected to meet you here again... And I hope you didn't get me wrong back then! It was just not the kind of life I was looking for that you had offered me...

@bubsmcp: I feel a strong jealousy of Éclate's appearance! I just don't dare getting to close to her for now...

@HotsuSama: Berkeley drives me a little nuts... But I assume that happens to anybody who gets close to him But I won't give up until we'll have worked that out! Nobody is undead enough to miss the chance of becoming a nice guy ;P

@InertZero: I've often seen Urch around the city. He seems nice! I always saw somebody quite like-minded in him! But that cat who is always with him... I just can't stand them... Obviously Given all the trouble those cats caused me... But I strongly hope that will somehow change throughout the journey!

@davide15: Howdy, Whon

@Inuvash255: I hope the caravan starts before I get caught by the guards

Hahaha, I figured it wouldn't be long before someone was listening to Jerusalem! Or, well, I guess it is a different album huh?

@inuvash
I think I'm done! Not sure if you're available to offer any feedback, but thanks for putting together a rad looking game!

Thanks bubs, and thanks WidowBolte for the enthusiasm!

@All: Just a few more days until the deadline! I plan to have decisions made pretty quickly after that, after a re-read of everything.

@widowbolte I don't mean to be rude, but you clearly have me mistaken for someone else.

*looks away slowly*

I have never had my heart broken by unrequited love.

@DialPforPickles: "Oh! Well... Probably..." *looks a bit confused at Luca for a moment and gets lost in her thoughts for a while...*

@DanshiiWithWulfs: "Sorry, dude! Didn‘t want to offend you! I think I‘m just projecting to much of my own mind into those of others recently... Anyway! No reason to... Whatever... I need rest! See you around!" *can‘t see no reason to put up a quarrel and scrams*

@Inuvash255: Enthusiasm is just another essence
