giggling so much inside.
If anyone wants a disliked officer, I sure would enjoy having a justification for all the backstabbing I plan on doing.
In that case, you and me now hate each other Failure Hero!
Ooh me! Perfect, I'm going to try to make a manipulative character and schemers usually don't like other schemers.
Hey guys, just a heads up, with characters as powerful as the ones we're submitting, the game might be tad on the easy side.
Granted, most the other forces will have generals with two stats in the 90s, they tend to only have ten or fewer (out of 40+ generals).
Now, I don't mind either way, and if you guys want über powerful characters, I'm happy to oblige :) but just note that having two stats 90+ is top tier stuff.
I'll try to mitigate the effect of having so many powerful generals by picking a terrible starting location for our force, but yeah, just something to keep mind of.
Edit: I notice there's a few questions asked earlier in the thread, I'll respond to those later; I'm watching tv right now =P
Snark! I will totally Dislike This Officer!
*does jazz hands*
Getting on the
Failure Hero Disliked Officer bandwagon~
You can backstab your allies in this game?
You dislike Failure Hero's character too? Wanna be friends?
You are the best husband. <3
Sure! We should be Liked Officers, I think.
Hey, Alko Boom, Let's be Liked Officers together. Don't let your hatred for my husband get in the way of our friendship.
Darn it! you're going to make me the diplomatic one aren't you?
Alright then, Yelim and I are now Liked Officers.
I have given your officers a common enemy and thus bonded them into a more effective fighting force. YOU'RE WELCOME SNARK.
Seriously though, none of you guys get to use my awesome fleet as a transport now.
YOU'RE MISSING OUT.
Have you seen my politics score? Of course you're the diplomatic one.
Edit 2: Sorry videet. No apology for Yelim though, she knew what she was getting into.
Since Failure Hero's character and mine are best friends, I expect Qian will show up a lot as a disliked officer too.
I really, really feel bad about how much work it's going to be to untangle all these posts and make all these characters.
But I'm also really, really looking forward to watching this wacky soap opera (with more armies!) play out in the game.
If anybody wants to be in a relationship, just ask~
edit: I forgot to give her a face and added Yelim in relations. Has anybody else grabbed this one?
Yelim, want to be one of my liked officers?
Also, re: difficulty, Snark, feel free to nerf Qian some, then. I really don't have any grasp of how everything works in this; I'd like her to still be useful without being completely overpowered and I don't know how to balance everything out.
Let's be good friends, okay? If I ever die in battle, you better mash that guy's head with your weapon of choice!
Can I give
JohnStargazer three cheers for the Suikoden reference? Now we have two of the four classics (kinda, sorta, vaguely) represented.
Here's my work-in-progress. I put Bio at the top because I tried to keep the character's abilities consistent with the biographical shtick. :p From a gameplay perspective, I tried not to make the character too much of a munchkin. He should be a poor man's Zhuge Liang: fair-to-middling at most things and downright incompetent in a duel ("uh, which end of the sword do I hold?"), but very, very good at befuddling enemy units, stun-locking them, or making them fight each other!
Snark - let me know if you'd like me to scale his stats up or down. :D
BIO: The man known to the Three Kingdoms as Li Min read history books and played video games all his life. He never thought he'd have to live them out. Until one day, a flash of lightning transported him to an idealised, cel-shaded version of Ancient China, where he found a rag-tag army in need of a strategist.
Face: Male 35
Close Friend: That Other Sun Quan (
Liked Officers: Meng Shulan & Sun Wukong (
LDR- 75 (Playing all those Total War games must have taught him SOMETHING)
POL- 75 (Playing SimCity and Tropico totally qualify him to run cities in ancient China!)
GROWTH PERIOD: Maintain
ABILITY PERSISTENCE: Long
Cavalry: C (Never ridden a horse in his life)
Navy: S (He likes boat rides, and he always plays a maritime power - the UK - in Paradox's historical strategy games)
SKILL: Agile Mind (This is one of Cao Cao's skills in the game - unlike us, canon characters can have more than one! It's extremely powerful but stops just shy of being a gamebreaker.)
Mind Elemental, that is an awesome bio
Also, some music from the series! The first is from an 80s-vintage orchestral compilation (and is composed by THAT Yoko Kanno; she got her start doing work for KOEI games before she moved off to compose anime music); the others are from the actual games.
If playing Paradox games doesn't prepare you for war then nothing can prepare you for anything.
Bleeding crap, give a guy some time to catch up with the available profiles. >_>
Snark, no word on the custom portraits?
I actually just went though the thread, and some of you guys have repeat pictures. Will that be a problem
Thanks - glad you like it! :D I'm a little surprised nobody beat me to it, but I'm not complaining. XD
Okay, this looks like it's going to be awesome. I've never actually have a chance to play this game so I am all for this. Also I kind of wanted to create a character inspired by a character from a novel and see if anybody gets the reference.
Alright, another batch of characters!
Couple housekeeping matters. First,
videetcredere, I think you and a few others mentioned I had given the wrong birthdates for your characters. That's been fixed now :)
Also, if you guys want to add a relationship with someone else's character, please write both the character's name and their player's name, it just makes it easier for me to keep track of who is who. Thanks guys!
This had to happen. Even if she's from a different dynasty. The songs must be sung.
Um, I'm not sure, but I think someone already has a character named Fa Mulan
My bad, just did a thread search and turns out I was mistaken!
Ozzo! If you're making a male, will you be my husbando?
wow that ended up sounding kind of weird
Were they specifically making the Disney version character?
edit: I can't believe I actually just scoured the entire thread for a Mulan. I found none, by the way. You might have been thinking of fadeaccomplit
Sorry, that was my mistake, for some reason I thought we already had a Mulan >_<
Ozzo, sorry, haven't had the time to look up how to add custom portraits just yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to look it up sometime today.
Mind if I just reserve a picture first, then? It'll take me a lot longer to come up to make it more than just a pretty face.
Sure thing :)
That's pretty forward of you, imouto-chan. Sure, why not. Let's see, which avatar has the most wrinkles...
That was me, but I changed her name since I wasn't really going for her character. I wish we could have more that five Liked Officers... :(
PARAdoxial 's Yue Li, wanna be disliked officers with Joly?
Still relegated to my phone for a about 7 more hours, but I want to confirm interest. I'll make a bio when I can and sort this out. Are there any bald portraits?
For men or women? I think there are a couple bald dudes, no bald ladies though :(
Separate names with a comma.
