Right...there have been a few little ideas stirring 'round my head for characters I would like to see in the mix. I'm thinking maybe this thread can give a little inspiration to folks creating characters...and I hope it's considered MOO-legal and what-all, technically these ideas aren't really IC yet, right?
Well...moderators feel free to delete this post
...until then, here are my little brain-farts:
1) A blind guy...think of all the fun RP you could have stumbling around! And you never have to put anything into his perception, unless you want to beef up his sense of touch or something. Better yet, I dare some brave player out there to have their character go Oedipus....tee-hee!
2) Suicidals! I would -pay- to see someone with decent RP skills make a bunch of characters whose sole purpose is to be short lived and spread misery...haven't you all read those messages on Gold? Well guess what..there is like -no- suicide rate in the current player population!
Of course, someone is gonna post a reply somewhere along the lines of "yea, well if you think it would be so much fun why don't you do it yourself?"...which is a completely valid point. Maybe I will. Hell, my character has a lot less to lose by going psycho than others, I suppose.
which leads me to my latest idea...
3) KUJO! Or some other marvelously rabid creature...how cool would it be to RP a doggie? I'm sure it would work...be like the cypunk Hound of the Baskervilles. Or a psycho scooby-doo. No, scratch that, scooby-doo would talk and that would sortof defeat the whole point. I'm thinking this would be more along the lines of that sewer rat which occasionally winds up dead on Sinn street....
...actually, I think maybe I'll call this idea. Somebody kill my character, no sweat...she'll get reincarnated as a dog :P
So there you have it...I'm curious to see what other characters you creative people might have come up with... and I really do hope this is all OOCly kosher... *ulp*
