A challenge for unusual characters

Recommended Posts

I did a thread like this back in 2015 and figure it's been long enough to re-issue the challenge 

The challenge is to you as an author to make a character (or use one if you already have one) that is 1) not human and 2) not (overtly) attractive

Play them for at least one full page of roleplay with another player or group of players, see what happens, and let us know how it goes. Note that the challenge isn't to catalog if you've done this in the past but the generation of new experience

My wonderful Reginald is a disgusting aberration known as a Worm That Walks, but he is becoming one of my favorite characters! I definitely recommend trying out new species and bizarre concepts; it gives a whole different perspective!

I like to think of myself as something of an advocate for trying out new characters and roleplay ideas. I’ve got a belt of successes—and failures!

Also, “Worm That Walks” is an awesome name. Reminds me of “Mountain That Rides”.

 

 

@Grubbistch

Sounds good mister I can dig it

@Grubbistch again

Unless I beat you to it—would that be okay? You could still reply to my thread in your couple of days. I’d be winging it unless you have a preferred premise in mind.

Isn't it? It's actually from Dungeons and Dragons to be fair so I can't credit the species, but their creation and usual evil alignment made me want to try and make a character based around such a weird and gross concept and thus my worm wizard was born. He is definitely the most out there thing I have done in some time!

Perhaps the weirdest char I roleplayed as was a giant eyeball named “Eye Suffer”.

Debating whether to use it or a new char.

🤔 Sadly I'm not used to playing non-humans but I made an eldritch abomonation once named Prty.

Bit on unattractive ones...I have Sera, my bald, armless, legless, and heavily scarred lady. Then there's Anna who's obscenely obese. Also Holly after her whole body got roasted and she survived...she's rocking those ugly burn scars well....🤣🤣

You might call her eldritch form ugly, but I appreciate the beauty in all the creatures of God's green earth.

...and all the ones NOT of God's green earth too. Haha.

Scars are attractive, what are you talking about? XD

Idea I thought up for just the occasion time to throw in something weird something feared by adventurers young and old. A beholder that really loves pretties and playing dress up with random crap adventures drop in her lair.
