*Eats a bit of popcorn* Interesting, interesting...


A truly evil character, with a cliche redemption quality to prove his humanity. Hmm...kind of vanilla, that.

I wonder what Scorpio would be like...

@Winter It all makes sense now! The person who so fervently supported the Paladins, would be evil!

I'm thinking of using twitlonger, but I may change my mind...

@Gambler One word: Honour! I'll probably think of a bit more later.

Yep, but that is the only line he has, and it's mainly there simply because I myself get filled with righteous rage at the abuse of children and I can not bring myself to not put that line there, otherwise, he would have no sign of a conscience anywhere.

I suppose it's fitting for a game like AQ.


And US...honor, huh? With the Necromancer order gone, I would suspect that under that ideal you would turn to a samurai persuasion. I think you'd be a little too rigid to be a ronin, though, which would be a lot more interesting, I feel.



Except for the fact that in true Feudal Japan history, the samurai held honor no more highly than the knights of Dark Ages Europe did. Like knights, samurai were simple thugs that were all but allowed free reign. In fact, ninjas came into existence from the peasant class solely to combat the samurai abusers, just as the Pope in Dark Ages Europe felt he had to intervene to leash the knights.


So what kind of character would you be? What kind of character...

@The Winter Knight: In total...I would guess that it will end off with 20-30 entries. Give or take some.

...so, that would give about a 5%-3.3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333% chance. Which...isn't that bad compared to most contests. But I could be entirely off.

@hellblade I understand.

@Gambler Samurai may not have actually held to and followed a good code of honour, but they definitely belived in it. In fact, if a Daimyo said that a certain Samurai had no honour, that Samurai would kill himself on the spot.

To a degree. But humans are humans.


Still, how many here would find it more interesting if the character picked was a ronin?


Or would you want to go straight to the top and become a shogun if you went the samurai style route, US?

@Gambler A ronin would be interesting. Well, unless you mean an unemployed worker. Me as a shogun, hmm....

No no. I mean a real ronin. Samurai with no shogun.


Hmm. That's an interesting route hellblade is thinking of. To be honest, I think it would be cool to see more polearm type characters as well, just because there really aren't that many. Polearms aren't as cool of weapons as whips, I feel, but that's personal opinion, and I think there's too many swords around already with the NPCs. Swords and staves both.

I am curious if they will let us use an image of our NPC as our forum avatar. Even with just a Member title.

Well, I really wouldn't see why not. After all, they'd have the art for it already on hand, making it into an NPC.


Then again, there's not an avatar available for every NPC in the game, either. *sigh* Abide the time until they throw one of up NMQ...

The reason I am wondering is because usually custom avatars are reserved for those with a Friendly! or equivalent title and above.

It wouldn't have to be custom. It's AE related, so it could qualify as a real avatar.

I think it can happen with contest winners as well. Or at least a custom title can.

With terms like that, manni, your NPC would be dressed in gaudy polka-dots and an orange and pink top hat.

I have no idea what I'd want in an NPC or quest if I were to win. I know that'd I'd want the NPC to look a certain way, and appear elven in origin, but little else other than that. :P

Yeah, gonna submit via g+. Made just for this contest. Not sure when, but... w/e.

Is it just me, or is this contest significantly longer than most? This is a month and a half, give or take. I'd imagine that it's to give everyone a good, long chance to work on something true to their heart and self, or even to give new players introduced by the Refer-A-Friend Challenge a chance to throw their hand in as well.

Elven in origin...

I am quite sure that the winner can have his NPC as an avatar eventually. Making an avatar of an NPC is trivial and any NPC is eligible for it.

The contest is long for several reasons. We want people to have time and not feel rushed. It ends the contest neatly on a weekend. And the stakes of the contest are quite high so we want to give everyone a fair shot to enter. Some people may be on a break or hiatus right now.
