Creation Challenge: September 2011

Due Date: September 24th

Theme: Tragedy

System: None (Generic)

Objective: Create a character (NPC) that is either a minor villain, or a major villain. The character should be memorable and interesting (unique in some way). It's up to the voters to decide, but the character should be somewhat realistic (nobody gets up in the morning and decides to just be evil). It's up for you to decide why the character is a villain. The character should have history (does not need to be detailed, and should be easily ported into a campaign). You can decide what setting the character is from (High Fantasy? Steampunk? Sci-Fi?)

The more detail you are able or willing to put into it, the better.

When the due date comes around, a poll will be put up to decide who has won. The criteria to determine the winner is the subjective views of each individual voter.

Prize: Bragging Rights!

Please create your own thread in the Challenges Sub-Forum for submissions, and you can ask any questions in this thread.

This might be much easier for me to find the time for, but I promise nothing (this time ).

Can the character still be made using the rules for a specific system? Or is the purpose of the challenge for the concept to be portable to any system within a certain genre/setting?

The purpose is for it to be portable to any system within the appropriate genre, so yeah, it's preferable that there aren't stats. If you like, you can provide stats as well for different systems, but it should be possible to just take the character itself minus stats and use it.

If you want to do both, that's fine too (include stats for one system, but also include a version without stats that is easily converted to other systems).

Lune, my plan is to use a system to create the character and then strip the stats out and turn them into description. I don't need to do that, by any means, by I've already got an idea for a villain.

I was thinking of doing something similar but the mechanics of the system seem fairly pivotal to the portrayal of the character so I'm not sure...

I'm not the only one doing this still, am I? I'm posting up my NPC as soon as I create the art for him in either Heromachine or Fabrica de Herois.

Nope, I'm entering this one, but I'm not able to do art for him, since I suck at that.

Hence, Heromachine and Fabrica de Herois... I suck at art, too.

All my ideas sucked. I may still post something, but I don't like anything I came up with.

Let's see if we get any more entries.

Two completely different setting villains so far, interesting.

I can see how mine is a little more limited in usability than yours. I also think it's cool that they're so different.

Midnight on the 24th, so you've got more than a day to get an entry up. It doesn't have to be good man =p. Everyone who enters is a winner, 'cause everyone gets to look at what gets put up and use what they like
