May 17: Can you think of a character from a book/movie/etc that would be fun in a typical D&D playthrough? What class(es) or abilities would they learn?

Cayde-6 from Destiny 2, because when you first meet him he's this super epic badass, aaaand then you get to go rescue him from his silly shenanigans while the twin sisters (known as the AI for his ship) mock him the entire time.  The ship's AI would make for some interesting players too, but the big question is: which ones the evil one? 

 

But he's definitely a character, that's for sure!

Silk, aka Prince Kheldar of Drasnia. He'd be a most excellent rogue, both in spycraft and acrobatics. 

 

Mulan, because she's awesome. She'd be a fighter with many points in disguise. 

 

Shallan from the Stormlight Archives. She'd definitely be an illusionist wizard. For that matter, just add the whole main case of that series. You'd have a ton of epic warriors, some of whom can friggin' fly. 

 

Todd, of Todd and the Book of Pure Evil. He sucks, but has outstanding luck.

May 16: Have you made any punny, silly, or ingenious character or location names?

I like clever, meaningful names, sometimes with non-obvious meanings.  (See for example what Xiwo Xerase means.)  I have also been known to take a basic description of a place, translate it into some other language via Google Translate, and change it slightly into an acceptable name.

 

I try to avoid punny and silly because my tolerance for puns is much higher than some of the people I game with and because we don't run comedic games (although maybe we should sometime).

Sophie from the book Howl's Moving Castle could be interesting.  I'm not sure how much I can share without spoiling the book though.

Princess Cimmorene from the enchanted forest chronicles by Patricia C Wrede. I don't think a specific class fits her, but she'd have a bit of everything, with a strong side of home economics. She dabbled in small magics, whacked a few things with a sword, melted some wizards, but mostly she used creative thinking and diplomacy. She's have a pretty high wisdom (lots of sense), above average intelligence and charisma. And bonuses to making desserts.

Bard maybe?  Good choice, by the way.

Funnily enough, I was thinking just yesterday that the entire cast of the Tremors series looked like an RPG group gone crazy. I'm not sure who'd be what, but ... they have RPG archetypes written all over them....

I think Rick Deckard (the Blade Runner) would be a pretty interesting concept for a Ranger (Monster Slayer sub-class, maybe?). And obviously, his favoured enemy would be Constructs.

Burt the Wizard, founder of Tactical Spellcraft.....perhaps every dungeon in the setting would be one of his prepper stashes.....and a definitive answer to just how much ammo can a bag of holding contain.

Harry Dresden!  Wizard for Hire!  (I have an idea how I would want him to advance in 3.5 along the book storylines).

Piper from Charmed. I guess she'd learn... witch bolt. *dodges tomato*

 

Raimundo from Xiaolin Showdown, because he's an overconfident jerk and a monk, and an elementalist.

There was this little grey cat that I was never anything but nice to (and that included filling her food bowl)...

 

I would have asked her, “Why are you so scared / what are you scared of?”

:huh:

 

(Her brother was the friendliest cat ever...wanted to be everyone’s best friend.)

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!
