This is nuts... but funny. (Meme)

Name 12 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow.  Once you've picked your 12 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly.  (No peeking until you've picked your characters!)

1) Silverhawk Orion Woods (Arion Woods) -- D&D
2) Bayushi Tashiro -- L5R
3) Miyamoto Rei -- Shadowrun
4) Daryl McKintrick -- Vampire
5) Rei of Shadowmere -- Exalted
6) Johnathan Chase -- Top Secret S.I.
7) Rinaldo Villanova -- 7th Sea
8) Dimitri Romanov -- Furry Pirates
9) Maxwell D. Amon (Daemon) -- Silver Age Sentinels
10) David Banner -- TORG
11) Kristien Tremblay -- Mage/Ars Magica
12) Erien Prodigal -- Werewolf

1)  Who would make a better college professor:  6, or 11?
(Johnathan Chase or Kristien Tremblay?)
Oy.  Err, I would have to say Kristien Tremblay.  He's *ancient*, born in the 1100s and still around in the 21st Century.  Being a mage, he's had a lot of book learning, and lived through a lot of history, so I think he'd do more than fine as a professor.  And he'd be able to tell when people are cheating, too.
 
Johnathan Chase is mostly self-taught, having not attended school and living on the street for most of his childhood.  He's a self-made man and fairly well off, but there's a lot he doesn't know.  The company he runs is not essentially run by him, but by the people he's hired -- he knows his limitations.

2)  Do you think 2 is hot?  How hot?
(Bayushi Tashiro)
Tashiro?  Oh hell yes.  (Dangerous Beauty and Benten's Blessing).  Tashiro fits quite neatly into the 'attractive asian' stereotype you would see in anime, and is supposed to be quite the hotty.  He's got the dark, smoldering look to his eyes, the perfect features, and the sense of being a dangerous person ('bad boy').  Considering he's a member of the Scorpion Clan, this all makes sense.

3)  12 sends 8 on a mission.  What is it, and does it succeed?
(Erien Prodigal sends Dimitri Romanov)
Err.  Wow.  Okay, so the werewolf spirit master (Werewolf, modern setting) sends the gypsy (fox) illusionist (Furry Pirates/Furry Outlaws, Age of Exploration) on a mission.  Hmm.  Okay, I can work with this.  Erien Prodigal has been contacted by the spirits, informing him that there's something going wrong in the deeper part of the woods.  He performs a powerful sending to the 'right spirit' for the job.  This sending contacts Dimitri, and when he investigates, he finds powerful necromancers contacting demonic forces, and proceeds to try to deal with them.  Dimitri is an INSANE knife fighter, and is quite skilled at cloaking himself with illusions to not be seen, so I think he could do very well if he was careful.  Sure.  I think he'd succeed.  This would then remove the dark taint from the deeper part of the woods, and leaves Erien to deal with the spirits who try to escape.

4)  What is, or would be, 9's favourite book?
(Daemon)
I have NO idea.  Max has this thing about absorbing information by computer, and can 'read' anything there in an instant (and anything within the city that is stored electronically).  Reading a book ... sitting down to read it?  I guess he'd do that while he's doing a few dozen other things 'online'.  Hmm.  I think he'd enjoy the Harry Potter series, actually.

5)  Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?
(Bayushi Tashiro, Johnathan Chase)
HA!  Actually, I could see Chase hiring Tashiro in an eyeblink.  Chase is very much the 'leader', and runs a security agency / secret ops organization.  Tashiro would be a perfect man for the job -- and Chase would probably get along well with him... they both have a love of bows.  I think Tashiro would respect him as a leader.

6)  For some reason, 5 is looking for a room-mate.  Should they share a studio apartment with 9, or 10?
(Rei of Shadowmere, Daemon, David Banner)
Oy.  Hmm.  I wonder in what setting this would be?  Assuming Exalted, I don't think EITHER would be a good idea, since Daemon would be going crazy at the absolute LACK of technology which he can 'read'.  David Banner is a Core Earther who has become an Orrorshan werewolf, so he has a dark streak in him which can result in bouts of savagery.  Actually, between the two, I would think Daemon.  Daemon can create anything out of thin air, and could really do wonders with an apartment -- and keep them well off, fed, and rich. ;) --- I wonder if he could create orichalcum?


7)  2, 7, and 12 have dinner together.  Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
(Bayushi Tashiro, Rinaldo Villanova, and Erien Prodigal)
Rinaldo takes them to this nice little place he knows in Vodacce, which he purchased some time ago.  Tashiro enjoys the vegetable and fish meal, and Erien eats rabbit, so as not to spaz Tashiro out.  The discussion?  Hmm, I think it would have to be a discussion of honour, and what each considers to be the benefits of following a code of honour, and what is considered 'honourable'.

8)  3 challenges 10 to a duel.  What happens?
(Miyamoto Rei, David Banner)
David would look absolutely confused.  The duel would involve Rei, who is a skilled Fox Shaman, calling some HUGE spirit to smack David around.  David would transform to werewolf form, and try to rip the spirit a new one, but I think he'd be insanely outclassed.  If all goes well, David will NOT suffer a setback and go feral.

9)  If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would they get it back?
(Arion Woods, Dimitri Romanov)
This would most likely be Dimitri's ability to do magic, and would all be part of some elaborate plan to get Dimitri to do some quest which would ultimately be critical to Dimitri's happiness and to the stability of the world.  Arion IS a god of Fate and Destiny, after all...

10)  Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.
(Rinaldo Villanova and Erien Prodigal)
"The Iron Prince."  This would be a 7th Sea/Werewolf the Apocalypse (not Forsaken) cross-over.  Erien Prodigal goes on a quest into the Umbra, and comes to Theah, where he is tapped by Rinaldo to assist in his taking over of Vodacce.  Erien becomes his secret weapon, and soon discovers that the Bargainers are powerful Wyrm spirits who were sealed off from the realm.  The climax of the fight would be Erien's pack and Rinaldo's allies versus Caligari, clockwork horrors, and Black Spiral Dancers on the island of Cabora, which in the end sinks into the sea.  Rinaldo is declared Prince of Vodacce, and Erien is finally accepted into the Black Furies (if only in name) for the courage he's shown and the ancient treasures he brings back.

11)  What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?
(Daryl McKintrick and Arion Woods)
Arion looks at what is needed to be done, and shapes Fate so that Daryl McKintrick goes along the proper path without being any the wiser.  This would involve a few coincidences, and the nudging of a few people to give the proper advice or information necessary.

12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
(Rinaldo Villanova)
I would probably hate his guts.  Seriously?  While Rinaldo is a charming, generous individual, I really couldn't see me liking him.  He's manipulative, and does everything to further his own ends.

13)  If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
(Miyamoto Rei)
Hmm.  I'd ask him to help my sister Samantha out once in a while, so she could get out and about more often.  Rei has a spell called Animus/Anima which would be perfect for the job.

14)  Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?
(Kristien Tremblay)
I believe Malcolm has drawn Kristien once.  I don't think anyone else has.

15)  If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?
(Bayushi Tashiro, Daryl McKintrick, Rei of Shadowmere)
100% behind Rei of Shadowmere.  Rei serves the Sun (Tashiro would accept this as 'Amaterasu'), and Daryl is a VAMPIRE (undead thing), which would make Tashiro consider him 'tainted'.  Thus, Daryl would have to die.  Now... could they succeed?  That's a tough call -- Daryl's damn resilient and can inflict brutal levels of damage.

16)  What might 10 shout while charging into battle?
(David Banner)
Oh, that's easy.  He'd pick the leader and scream, "I INVOKE THE EVERLAW OF ONE!" -- this invoking a Reality Storm and taking the leader out of the fight... he's annoying that way.  :D

17)  If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
(Dimitri Romanov)
"Deception" -- The Cruxshadows

18)  1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
(Arion Woods, Johnathan Chase, and Erien Prodigal)
Erien is outclassed.  Arion's a god, and Chase has MAD reflexes.  If Arion wants it though, he's going to have it, since Destiny would declare it his.  However, Arion's not like that, so Chase would get it.  Funny enough, Chase and Arion HAVE met before.  Erien hasn't met either.

19)  What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?
(Bayushi Tashiro, David Banner)
Err.  No.  Tashiro may be bishie, but he's straight.  So's David.

20)  What would 5 most likely be arrested for?
(Rei of Shadowmere)
Enacting the Unconquered Sun's will upon some high-ranked criminal with a really nice 'cover' in society.  Rei would take the guy out, and be charged with murder.

21)  What is 6's secret?
(Johnathan Chase)
Where to begin?  His father was an oyabun for the Yakuza, and murdered his mother and nurse-maid in front of him while he was a child.  He killed his father (at the age of 8, I think?), and escaped, being hunted by the Yakuza.  His first act on US soil was to kill a terrorist who had hijacked the plane and was holding everyone hostage -- but the terrorist had a dead-man's switch on some explosives, and the plane blew up, killing everyone.  Chase has a LOT of psychological issues -- as an adult he's a decent man, though a bit intense.  He does not let himself feel sadness for anything he's done or experienced, but he WILL accept fault for his failings.

22)  If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
(Daemon, Kristien Tremblay)
Kristien.  He'd simply teleport there.  Victory!

23)  If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?
(Rinaldo Villanova, Dimitri Romanov)
Hmm.  Rinaldo.  He'd cut up anyone who caused trouble.  Dimitri might actually rob me. ;)


24)  1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?
(Arion, Daemon team up.  Daryl McKintrick is the bad guy.  Kristien offers to aid Arion/Daemon, but is actually a spy.  Daryl's kidnapped Erien Prodigal.  Rei of Shadowmere offers wise advice, so they seek out Miyamoto Rei).
This ... is nuts.  Hmm.  "The Well Between Worlds 1:  The Twilight War"  It would have to be multiple parts.

Best meme ever posted! It's going to take me a while to answer all the questions, though! XD

I'mma post it here
Name 12 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow. Once you've picked your 12 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly. (No peeking until you've picked your characters!)
1) Gareth Xavier Antares - V:tM Revised Larp
2) Drakkos - Palladium (generational)
3) Farnau Sasheen "Noah" - D&D 3.0
4) Agent Kyodai - Aberrant
5) Parnon Rathe - D&D 3.0
6) Tiberius Gabriel Gibson - V:tM Larp.
7) Coben - Amber
8) Ashen Hand of Uncomprimising Diligence - Exalted
9) Jonny Morrigan - W:tA Larp
10) Vitali Giovanni - V:tM Larp
11) Ledal Luseth - Exalted
12) Hadrian Kade - Iron Kingdoms (d20 3.5)


And now on to the questions after clipping your answers off...

Re: I'mma post it here
1) Who would make a better college professor: 6, or 11? Gibson or Luseth
OH boy... Professor of what? It really would depends on what you want them to teach. Now on the upside Gibson would never claim a sick day or use any theoretical staff benefits (such as sending dependents or spouses to school for free) as he is undead. Of course everything would have to be mixed delivery with evening only physical classes. Now with Luseth he'd be there but your school would risk a high drop out or suicide rate but let me tell you, whoever completed any program that he taught in, they would be very dangerous in the world.

2) Do you think 2 is hot? How hot? Drakkos
He's a dragon. Setting aside shapeshifting or mental manipulation there's of course the issue of being able to breathe fire. Look. I'm not going to speak on the issue of potential physical attraction as he's a giant sentient cold blooded creature of magic.

3) 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed? Hadrian Kade & Ashen Hand.
This is sick and preverse for all the wrong/right reasons. Cygnaran Warcaster Hadrian Kade sends an Abyssal to wipe out the GreyLords and royal lineage of Khardor. Blood and suffering as far as the eye can see... sure I could script it out but come on... all flowing water for as far as the eye can follow turns to blood. Key cities and locations are slick and diseased after a bloody rainfall. Her majesty's royal protectors lose their limbs and are forced to watch as what could only be understood as a vampire drains her majesty of all life before sculpting their lost legs into long boots and their arms into skeletal monstrosities then kindly asking them where the rest of her kin are.. All the while Hadrian would be considering how to eventually dispose of the dark creature once the tasks were complete. Perhaps sending it on a round about way to the isle of Cryx to attack Lord Torduk once Ashen's ego was sufficiently bloated. Secretly it's because I'm lazy and don't want to try considering the machinations of a d20 Int 22 person.

4) What is, or would be, 9's favourite book? Jonny Morrigan
Noam Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent. What? He was from a very poor family in Amerikkka (as he calls it) that was eventually given the power and responsibility of arbitrator and assassination. Also, he had really big balls. So big that while you believe they had no bearing on what he read they generate a contextual gravity well.

Re: I'mma post it here
5) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around? Drakkos and Gibson
Well... Gibson didn't really like to lead or rule. Hated it more than anything else. Thought it was stupid that anyone with any degree of intelligence and self sufficiency would need to follow someone else but at the same time he did respect order and authority if well managed. Drakkos... he serves a purpose already and simply couldn't swear to anyone else anything that compromised that purpose. They woudl likely sit at a table saying some idiot sent them both a note saying that they'd have to swear fealty to the other and go back to their business. That or Drakkos would rewrite Gibson's memory and hope for the best.

6) For some reason, 5 is looking for a room-mate. Should they share a studio apartment with 9, or 10? Parnon Rathe, Jonny Morrigan/Vitali Giovanni
The answer is simply Jonny Morrigan. Both are sneaky bastiches with a consistent moral code. Both are impulsive and both really don't trust vampires.

7) 2, 7, and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss? Drakkos, Coben and Hadrian Kade.
Well... Coben would invite them all to dinner in a variant reality where all vegetables taste like meat. Possibly called The Juicy Green Door of BBQd Deliciousness so that they could discuss the probability of multiple realities, levels of intersection, their relationship with time (if any) and the dangers of starting your day on a sugar rush. Drakkos wouldn't really care about the food so much as humanoids are very interesting and surprisingly enough have interesting things to say. Hadrian would be jotting down notes while considering ways to build time-space machines or gateways after explaining to his peers (read - the apes with glasses and clean clothes) in very simple terms that there is quite likely more to reality than previously understood. He'd also be wondering why he gets sucked into things like this as he has a city to build, a kingdom to protect/usurp and why the childminds at the other tables are looking at him as if he's crazy for carrying such a big sword.

8) 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens? Farnau Sasheen versus Vitali Giovanni
What? Um... well Vitali would ask him why he disrespects him in his own house like this then suggests that perhaps Farnau sit down and explain why they should fight. All the while very slowly amassing power by stripping away the layers between the world of the living and the dead while summoning his spiritual servants to do him a favor of removing the nuisance from his presence. Then he'd get back to taking care of his people while considering thanking the ghosts for not making a mess of his carpets.

Re: I'mma post it here
9) If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would they get it back? Antares and Ashen Hand.
Well... he wouldn't. OK OKAY! He would as far as he was concerned but then Antares would have to take that from him eventually as well. Doesn't really answer the question, does it? Well what else do you expect when considering a Ravnos that thinks he is the will of a fallen god and has the abilities to contest reality in all ways that matter?
10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire. Coben and Hadrian Kade
Samsara. Coben would finally remove himself from the bulk of politics to wander and observe after mastering the ability to travel through all shadow spreading his awareness to touch each simultaneously. Hadrian Kade would likely give in to his darker impulses (and gobs of ego) becoming resentful of the slower minds around him and reaping a bloody whirlwind. Eventually seeking to redeem himself by reconciling his past and seeking others like him to assist in their challenges.

11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together? Agent Kyodai and Antares
Simple. Antares would be an aberrant with life draining and quantum warping powers that had gone out of control thus requring containment by the organization Kyodai worked for. In exchange for limited confinement he woudl assist several task forces as needed. It would merely take Operations saying the two must work together.

12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along? Coben.
Oh god no! He'd drink all my caffienated beverages and play my videogames while rearranging my room and possessions to suit his instinctual needs thinking nothing of it as my existence is merely the echo of the conflict between chaos and order. But if the bastard forgot his tarot deck I would totally be hitting on Flora. ALL THE TIME!

13) If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be? Farnau Sasheen
I'd tell him to go kill the poachers that are killing and skinning the tigers and make sure that region of the world is given the opportunity to rehabilitate itself. What? If 'Noah' actually existed with the abilities he had I really wouldn't feel bad about asking him to do these things...

14) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11? Ledal Luseth
No but someone I know does owe me a portrait of another character. Now I did submit Luseth as an entry for the exalted player's guide but apparently he wasn't spiffy enough in 75 words even though many on the forum thought he sounded tight.

15) If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be? Drakkos, Kyodai and Parnon Rathe
That's a tough one... Parnon is a fairly decent person. Well meaning but a bit childish at times. Kyodai was a cold blooded killer. Still is actually, but a killer adhering to a difficult belief structure (that we have the luxury of judging and finding inappropriate )while seeking to create a better world through whatever means necessary so that others never have to walk the path that he does. Drakkos would begrudgingly side with Kyodai as Parnon is far too naive for his own good.

16) What might 10 shout while charging into battle? Vitali Giovanni.
Charging into battle what? Alright.... "Your ending is my ascension"

17) If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose? Ashen Hand
The immediate choice is Deep by Danzig.

Re: I'mma post it here
18) 1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
- Antares, Gibson, Hadrian Kade
The answer is simple. Hadrian Kade. He is the only one capable of actually eating it. Antarers wouldn't really care as he can simply recreate the sensation for himself. Gibson would be a bit twitchy as he still misses eating normal food.
19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10? Drakkos and Vitali
For the sake of humour "Listen! I'm the shapeshifting pseudo-god so tonight I'm the top!! And so help me you will scream my name as I lay my divinity upon you!"

20) What would 5 most likely be arrested for? Parnon Rathe
B n E. He was a rogue... what???? it was a time of chaos... some of the people were dead and didn't need those possessions anymore best to consolidate them, especially anything written.
21) What is 6's secret? Gibson
Well. Let's see. He was from a family of hunters. His brother was turned by the sabbat. He used to actually feel and manifest a small measure of god's favor. He hates all kindred and every so often wanted to give in to the beast. Oh! Did I mention that while embraced gangrel, he wasn't? Yeah the blood didn't take... oops.

22) If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first? Jonny Morrigan and Ledal Luseth
It depends what's at stake. If someone made a joke about yet another rat race... Luseth would win because Jonny would stop to cuss at the stupid sob. If everything were equal with RAW in effect, I'd have to say Luseth in sprint or medium distance. Marathon would be Jonny because he could bolt hole it.

23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8? Coben or Ashen Hand.
Ashen Hand. Hands down. HA! Coben may accidentally shift in a manticore just to see how people react and then leave when things got messy. All likely revenge for hitting on his mom. Ashen Hand would likely just traumatize me for the rest of my life after causing a 'deathwake' thus eliminating all potential crime rates from that area of the city. And why would he stop there...

24) 1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?
- Antares, Morrigan vs. Kyodai. Luseth plant for Kyodai. Kade-napped. Rathe says seek out Sasheen on degobah....

I think #24 is really assuming that all of the characters you chose are part of a single world. If you got it from me, I got it from kevinjdog, who's a famous cartoonist and used characters from his strip.

"I think #24 is really assuming that all of the characters you chose are part of a single world."

I disagree. This looks like a questionnaire designed specifically with gamers in mind, and my experience is that gamers love to do crossovers, even when their better judgement really ought to be against it.

Geebus... mine's posted to my journal. My brain is wrung out now. I haven't played half the characters in 8 years! The rest are only occasionally used.
