a game of minor characters

“Your men call Val a princess, but to the free folk she is only the sister of their king’s dead wife. If you force her to marry a man she does not want, she is like to slit his throat on their wedding night.” … They are all convinced she is a princess. Val looked the part and rode as if she had been born on horseback. A warrior princess, he decided, not some willowy creature who sits up in a tower, brushing her hair and waiting for some knight to rescue her. (A Dance with Dragons)

NPC Generator

I thought over my idea of regulating minorities in Pathfinder so someone can’t have too many or too few, which kind of ruins immersion in either direction (though personally I think too few ruins it waaay more).  Here’s the table we came up with based on various surveys around the world.

Sexuality
1-5 homosexual
6-15 bisexual
16-18 asexual
19-100 heterosexual

Gender
1-6 transgendered
6 agender
7-17 gender queer/fluid
18-100 cisgender

Sex
1-50 female
51 intersex (genitals of both)
52-100 male

Minority (racial/ethnic)
1-30 ethnic/racial minority
31-100 not a racial/ethnic minority

Minority (Religious)
1-30 religious minority
OR (if racial minority)
1-50 religious minority
31/51-100 Not religious minority

Age
1-20 younger than usual
21-75 adult
76-100 elder

Weight
1-15 underweight 
16-60 average weight
61-90 overweight 
91-100 very overweight

Note: For the purpose of simplicity, I combined pan and bisexuality as a thing because it’s difficult to differentiate the demographics of each in the large surveys I looked at.  I’d argue that’s a player choice, as it’s very much a form of personal identification at that point.

Depending on your world, you probably want to tweak these numbers.  A poor city wouldn’t have such a high chance of being overweight (I used western world demographics to map this, so), and as someone suggested, there’s not the same chance that every race has the same likelihood to be born gay or cisgendered.

I am the oldest,” the prince said, “and yet I am the last. After Mors and Olyvar died in their cradles, I gave up hope of brothers. I was nine when Elia came, a squire in service at Salt Shore. When the raven arrived with word that my mother had been brought to bed a month too soon, I was old enough to understand that meant the child would not live. Even when Lord Gargalen told me that I had a sister, I assured him that she must shortly die. Yet she lived, by the Mother’s mercy. And a year later Oberyn arrived, squalling and kicking. I was a man grown when they were playing in these pools. Yet here I sit, and they are gone.” (A Feast for Crows)

One of the most persistent memes and also one of my favourites is the “I can’t go to school today it’s a national holiday” on the birthday of a fictional character/minor celebrity/anniversary of a game or movie/any nerdy anniversary that doesn’t warrant an actual national holiday.

Okay so I’m just going to come out and say it… STOP THREATENING BIOWARE DEVS FOR MASS EFFECT ANDROMEDA. Yes, they fucked up on a lot of things, but they did good things too. And you can’t blame ALL of Bioware for something that only some of them worked on. The Dragon Age team does not 100% equal the Mass Effect team. You can’t (and shouldn’t) call all of the people, or ANY of the people for that matter, at Bioware trash. Even then, they’re still REAL people, a bunch of whom will listen to what you have to say and take note of it for the future IF YOU TALK TO THEM LIKE RATIONAL HUMAN BEINGS AND DON’T THREATEN THEM. They’re not bad people guys. If we want it to improve we’ve got to be rational, not angry assholes

Spear and Hammer of Justice

“I used to be a hero myself, back in the old days. Gerson, the Hammer of Justice. When she was younger, Undyne would follow me around, to watch me beat up bad guys… Sometimes she’d even try to help!”

(pls click on it, tumblr does a pretty shitty job at resizing the pic again)

A younger Undyne and a slightly younger Gerson. I just love how in the game even minor characters like the vendors have their own little stories to tell, all these little details, some of them even reveal interesting backstory-stuff about the major characters from time to time , that’s just so neat!
The stories about Alphys/Catty/Bratty, and Undyne/Gerson were the ones I probably liked the most.

Patchface had come to them as a boy. Lord Steffon of cherished memory had found him in Volantis, across the narrow sea. The king–the old king, Aerys II Targaryen, who had not been quite so mad in those days–had sent his lordship to seek a bride for Prince Rhaegar, who had no sisters to wed. “We have found the most splendid fool,” he wrote Cressen, a fortnight before he was to return home from his fruitless mission. “Only a boy, yet nimble as a monkey and witty as a dozen courtiers. He juggles and riddles and does magic, and he can sing prettily in four tongues. We have bought his freedom and hope to bring him home with us. Robert will be delighted with him, and perhaps in time he will even teach Stannis how to laugh.” (A Clash of Kings)

harvey smith: we’re gonna explore more of emilys character in this game and make the morality more interesting and realistic and complex while providing a balanced but moderately challenging gameplay experience for newcomers and veteran players and yes there are indeed confirmed prominent LGBT characters in this game that will play not a minor role but a huge role in the story. we will try to answer everything youve been wondering since the first dishonored came out as best as we can in dishonored 2. we love our fanbase and hope you enjoy this game.

“You are in the Falcon Tower, Ser Harrold,” Alayne put in. Far away from Sweetrobin. That was intentional, she knew. Petyr Baelish did not leave such things to chance. “If it please you, I will show you to your chambers myself.” This time her eyes met Harry’s. She smiled just for him, and said a silent prayer to the Maiden. Please, he doesn’t need to love me, just make him like me, just a little, that would be enough for now.

“Sixteen years ago, a bastard son of King Aegon IV named Daemon Blackfyre had risen in revolt against his trueborn brother. Daemon had used the three-headed dragon on his banners too, but he reversed the colors, as many bastards did. His revolt had ended on the Redgrass Field, where Daemon and his twin sons died beneath a rain of Lord Bloodraven’s arrows.” (The Mystery Knight)

“The singers leave out much and more. Daemon was the Warrior himself that day. No man could stand before him. … There was much and more afterward, I know. … but at the end of the day, it made no matter. The war was done when Daemon died.” (The Sworn Sword)
