Character Creation 1 - Nature and Demeanor

Post  Best Sakuya NA on Sat Nov 24, 2012 8:23 pm

Creating a Character Concept

What sort of person are you going to make today? Even if he's strictly not a human being, he is still
a person with a distinct personality which you should roleplay. There are two parts to focus on right now. One is called Nature, and the other is called Demeanor. Your Nature represents how you really are deep down, but your Demeanor is how you appear to other people. You must roleplay these. Not only do they help make your character different from you, roleplaying them allows you to regain spent Luck points, which you will need to do in the course of play to enhance your actions. Luck points are precious, and only through roleplaying your Nature and Demeanor can you regain these valuable points.

A long list of Natures and Demeanors will follow. If you wish, you may talk to your Storyteller and create a new Nature or Demeanor, but you must define what it does and how you can satisfy it. Generally, you regain one spent Luck point for successfully roleplaying your Nature or Demeanor during an action. You can get a maximum of 4 Luck from Nature, and 4 Luck from Demeanor, every day. This makes a maximum of 8 Luck earned per day, not including perks and flaws that affect that number.

If you have any questions, or are lost completely on what Nature and Demeanor you want, please talk to your Storyteller, which in this case would be me. I will help you with any questions you have.

To be clear:

  • Everyone knows your Demeanor.
  • Only you and the Storyteller initially know your Nature.
  • Players can figure out Natures by watching each others' actions carefully.

So, pick one item from the following list as your Nature and one as your Demeanor (or create a new
Demeanor and/or Nature with the Storyteller's approval). Reveal your Nature only to the Storyteller.
They are in alphabetical order.

Deep down, you know your way of doing things is
correct. Given time and the right guidance, others will
come to recognize that; unfortunately one cannot force
them to see. The others must seek out the truth for
themselves when they are ready. When people become
aware of the horrors and nightmares that exist in the
world and realize that their life was "just a sugar-coated
topping and another layer exists beneath it", they'll soon
seek direction. Once they do, the Advisor appears, ready
to guide them along the proper path.

-Regain luck if someone seeks out your advance and
then follows it, especially if it fits the Advisor's vision for
the future.

No matter how horrifying, otherworldly, or bizarre the
subject is, it can be understood and categorized if the
right data is collected and studied. To an Analyst,
anything is data to be sorted, examined, and used to
understand what's really going on. Everything the Dead
do has some possible significance and should be
carefully considered. Once enough data has been
gathered, everything will fall into place. Analysts often
overstudy the situation and look for too much
information, and are hesitant to offer conclusions to
their work.

-Regain luck if your careful observation and scientific
analysis of a subject results in important insights that
help the group or develop your hopes for the future.

Your care about much more than just your own needs;
you intend to create something of lasting value for those
who will come after you. People need many things, and
you gain satisfaction by providing what you can. You are
the type of person who makes an effort to build
something of value: to found a town, create a company,
invent a useful gadget, cure a disease, or in some way
leave a lasting legacy. Many American pioneers were
Architects by Nature.

- Regain Luck whenever you create or establish
something of importance or lasting value.

This person has no faith in the laws of the land and
takes matters into his own hands, seeking revenge.
When faced with an offense against himself (or a
stranger), the Avenger directly confronts and punishes
the offender, making sure the penalty is scaled to match
the crime. Avengers are found among social activists
and cynical cops (Mitchell).

- Regain Luck if you strike back against a person or
organization that has wronged you or a person you

You must have complete control over any situation,
complete control over those around you and as much
control over fate as you possible can. Control is the only
thing you want; it is what you worship.
Authority is what you desire, and it is what you gain
when you have control. The more authority you have,
the more control you gain. One hand feeds the other.
Others may consider you domineering, but they just
aren't up for the job - you are the only one who truly
understands what has to be done.

- Regain Luck whenever you achieve complete control
over a situation involving other individuals.

You hide your secrets from others. Even more
importantly, you hide your true self. Anyone who
understands you can hurt you, so no one must ever see
the real you, or even come close. Give away as little of
yourself as possible - adopt a false personality if you like -
but just make sure no one discovers the truth about
you. Knowledge is power, and those who know you can
do anything they like to you.

- Regain Luck whenever another character confesses he
is unable to understand you, or whenever someone
makes a false assumption about you that gives you an

You must always be on the cutting edge - always the first
with a piece of news, a dance or fashion trend, or a
discovery in the arts. Nothing pains you more than
hearing news secondhand, or someone else telling you
about a hot new band. New discoveries are your life, and
you devote a great deal of time and effort to keeping up
with things. After all, if you're not in the forefront,
you're nowhere.

- Regain Luck whenever you are the first one to pass on
news or a significant discovery.

Bon Vivant

Life is pointless, shallow and meaningless - so have as
good a time as possible. Rome may burn, but you'll be
playing a fiddle when it does.
A hedonist, sensualist, sybarite and party animal, the
words austere,self-denial, chastity, and self-discipline
have no place in your life. You much prefer the concept
of instant gratification. Still, you don't mind a little hard
work as long as a good time awaits you upon its
completion. Most Bon Vivants have low WILL, for
they so dearly love excess.

- Regain Luck whenever you have a truly good time and
can fully express your exultation (or perhaps even more
points if you enjoy an especially fun night).


You are known as a bully, a ruffian and a tough, and
delight in tormenting the weak. Things must always go
your way, and you do not tolerate those who cross you.
Power and might are all you respect; indeed, you heed
only those who are stronger than you are. You see
nothing wrong with forcing your will upon others.
There is nothing you like better than to persecute,
antagonize, heckle and intimidate those for whom you
have contempt, and you have that for most people. The
emotions of kindness and pity are not completely foreign
to you, but you hide from your own sense of weakness
through cruelty to others. While most Bravos despise
the weak, a few become their protectors.

- Regain Luck whenever you intimidate or physically
force another person to do what you wish.

You always try to help those around you, struggling to
make a difference in the needs and sorrows of the
unfortunate. People around you depend on your
kindness to keep them steady and centered. You are the
one people turn to when they have a problem.

- Regain Luck whenever you successfully protect or
nurture someone else. It can be as small as a smile of
support or a shoulder to lean on at an appropriate
moment. You must help the other person in some way,
though he need not acknowledge it openly.

Within the pursuit of your cause, you can experience
true joy. Whether the passion is battle religious fervor,
or literature, it gives you the strength to withstand just
about anything. Given the chance, you indulge in your
passion as deeply as you can. Unlike the Fanatic, you
don't do what you do out of duty -- you do it because
you love it. Hippies, political activists, and crusaders are

-Regain Luck when you pursue your cause or covert
another character to the same cause.

You are still immature in personality and temperament:
a kid who never grew up. Though you can (hopefully)
care for yourself, you prefer the security of being
watched over by others. Often you seek out someone to
look out for you - a caretaker of sorts. Some see you as a
spoiled brat, while others see you as an innocent cherub
unaffected by the evils of the world. This is a very
common archetype for those who became Investigators
when they were young and have matured mentally but
not emotionally.

- Regain Luck whenever someone does something to
help you with no apparent gain for herself.

You are driven by the need to win at all costs. The thrill
of victory is the only thrill you recognize; it is the thing
that drives you. You see life as a contest and society as a
clash between winners and losers. You believe all the
macho business proverbs - "if you're not the lead dog,
the view never changes"; "there are no prizes for second
place"; "eat or be eaten." You try to turn every situation
into a contest of some kind, and it is the only way you
can relate to anything. You are capable of cooperating
with others, but only by turning the group interactions
into another contest: you must be the leader, or the most
productive, or the most indispensable, or the best liked -
anything, as long as it means you win
in some way or another.

- Regain Luck whenever you win a contest of any sort,
formal or informal. For truly impressive victories, the
Storyteller may award more points.

You understand people and, more importantly, you like
them. You are a facilitator who listens and advises.
People confess to you and in return you give them
advice, most of which is good (though sometimes your
advice is more for your own benefit than for that of the
recipient). You are very interested in other people, and
who and what they are. Personalities fascinate you, as do
the sickness and beauty of human nature.

- You regain Luck whenever someone confides in you
on a personal and intimate level.

You are a follower. Taking charge is just not your way. It
is easy for you to adapt, attune, adjust, comply and
reconcile yourself to whatever new situation you find
yourself in. You flit to the brightest star, the person
whom you feel to be the best, throwing your lot in with
her. It is both difficult and distasteful for you to go
against the flow or rebel. You hate inconsistency and
instability, and know that by supporting a strong leader,
you help prevent chaos from occurring. All stable
groups need some kind of Conformist.

- Regain Luck whenever your group (the brood)
accomplishes something because of your support and

What's the sense of working hard when you can get
something for nothing? Why drudge when, just by
talking, you can get what you want? You always try to
find the easy way out, the fast track to success and
wealth. Some people might call what you do swindling
or even outright theft, but you know that you only do
what everyone else does; you just do it better and don't
get caught. Additionally, it's a game, and you get great
pleasure out of outwitting someone. Connivers play
many roles, so you may be a thief, a swindler, a street
waif, an entrepreneur, a con man or just a finagler.

- Regain Luck whenever you are able to get your way by
tricking another person into doing as you wish.

Nothing in the world should be accepted without
thorough scrutiny and examination. Nothing is ever
perfect, and the blemishes must be pointed out in order
for the good to be truly known. Your standards are high
for everything, and you insist on their being met. You
encourage the same ideals in others, because laxity and
low standards reduce the quality of life for everyone.
Others will thank you later, once they discover the purity
of your perspective. You seek out and expose the
imperfections in every person or thing you encounter.
You are never satisfied with anything that is less than
perfect, unless it is within yourself after all, you're not a

- Regain Luck whenever you are able to discover a
significant imperfection that has escaped the attention of

You are an irascible, churlish person at heart, taking
everything seriously and finding little humor in life
(though you may have a wickedly barbed wit). Cynicism
is your middle name; it is the tool with which you judge
everything in life. You have a very well-defined
understanding of how things really work, especially
when they involve the circus of human endeavor. Long
ago the stupid behavior of others ceased to surprise you.

- Regain Luck whenever someone does something
stupid or when things go sour, just like you predicted.
You must predict it either out loud to the other
characters or in private to the Storyteller.

You thrive on puzzles and riddles, be they the obvious
sort, found in books and games, or hidden within
seemingly benign texts or even a person's face.

- Regain Luck when you solve a particularly challenging
puzzle or mystery.

You despise chaos and disorder, and like to take control
and organize things in order to suppress anarchy. You
like to be in charge, live to organize, and habitually
strive to make things work smoothly.
You trust your own judgment implicitly and tend to
think of things in black-and-white terms (Swayze-isms):
"This won't work," "You're either for me or against me,"
"There are two ways to do this - my way and the wrong

- Regain Luck when you are allowed to lead a group
and accomplish some significant task.

There are always people who don't fit in, and you are
such a miscreant. Your beliefs, motivations and sense of
propriety are the complete antithesis of the status quo.
You are not so much an aimless rebel as an independent
thinker who feels he does not belong in society . You
don't give a damn about other people's morality, but you
do adhere to your own strange sense of morality.
Deviants are typically irreverent, and some have truly
bizarre tastes and desires.

- Regain Luck whenever you are able to thumb your
nose at society, its norms, and its ideals without

Your ideas allow you to rise above your surroundings and
limitations. You share your ideas with others, but
often do not have a plan for getting from here to
where you ought to be. Thus your dreams are met
with skepticism, but these tests of boundaries
bring about change in the end. Philosophers and
inventors are Dreamers.

- Regain Luck if you can convince someone
to alter their course of action and follow your vision.

People with this Archetype are all but unstoppable.
Engines are implacable, and driven by their purpose.
Restraining orders, arrest warrants, and sucking chest
wounds are all mere distractions they ignore. In many
situations only death will stop them.

-Regain Luck when you bulldoze through a seemingly
impossible situation.

You are consumed by a cause; it is the primary force in
your life, for good or ill. Every ounce of passion you
possess is directed toward it; in fact, you may feel very
guilty about spending time on anything else. You will let
nothing stand in your way - nothing that you cannot
overcome, in any case. You and those around you may
suffer, but your cause is everything - the end justifies the
means. Before the game begins, make sure you describe
your cause, and define how it may affect your behavior.

-You regain Luck whenever you accomplish an act
which furthers your cause.

You are as flamboyant as you are amoral; some see you
as a rogue, a Don Juan, a rake, a paramour or just a
lounge lizard - but you see yourself as all of the above. A
consummate actor who loves to make as big a show of
things as possible, nothing attracts your attention more
than an appreciative audience.
You love people and you love to impress them even
more. Though you may indeed be a superior lover, you
enjoy the chase almost as much as you enjoy the act.
Gallants vary widely in temperament and ambition,
holding in common little more than their love of

- Regain Luck whenever you manage to dazzle or
impress another person. The Storyteller always makes
the final call, even when characters are involved.

You have the strength, be it spiritual, physical, or both,
to handle this hostile world, and desire to use that
strength to protect the weaker folk around you.

- Regain Luck when you successfully shield some
worthy party from great harm.

You alleviate pain and suffering. This can be done by
setting a bone or routing stolen foodstuffs to a starving
third-world country. Regardless of the subjects
humanity (or lack thereof), you are dedicated to
preserving their lives and well-being. Social workers,
psychiatrists, and clerics embody this archetype.

-Regain Luck if you can heal grievous wounds of body
or mind in another.

Your are reclusive and ascetic by nature, preferring your
own company to that of others. Introspective by nature,
you viw everything from a very personal standpoint.
When in public, you tend to be quiet, speaking only
when spoken to, unless your input has such extreme
relevance that you feel you have to say it. One of the
benefits of this is that others tend to see you as wise,
since when you do speak, your words often make a
profound point that was overlooked. Despite your desire
to be alone, you are drawn out bye the need to watch
and learn. Your curiosity about the nature of things and
our place amont them keeps you from being totally

-Regain luck if you can solve a problem through
reflective introspection instead of rushed action.

Honest Abe
You have a moderate temperament, and refrain at all
cost from telling lies and stealing from others. You were
brought up to live honestly and openly, and to be good
to others - you have lived your life by these simple truths
ever since. You are not a dogmatist and do not insist that
others live as you do, nor have you constructed a
complicated set of rules for yourself. You are flexible in
your behavior, but always carefully evaluate your actions
against your beliefs.

-You regain Luck if your honesty turns out to help you.
In other words, your honesty turns out to have been the
proper way to do things and thus vindicates your beliefs,
even from a practical standpoint.

You are the fool, idiot, quipster, clown or comic, forever
making fun of both yourself and others. You constantly
seek the humor (lulz) in any situation, and strive always
to battle the tides of depression inside yourself. You hate
sorrow and pain, and constantly try to take others' minds
off the dark side of life. Sometimes you'll do nearly
anything to forget pain exists. Your particular brand of
humor might not always impress your friends, but it
makes you feel better. Some Jesters manage to escape
pain and are truly happy, but most never find release.

- Regain Luck when you raise the spirits of those
around you through the device of humor, especially
when you are able to escape your own pain in the

You are dedicated to the unbroken routine of your
existence, and refuse to do anything that compromises
your routine and established practices. No matter how
urgent or deserving an individual case may be, the
preservation of established practices and routines is
more important. Individual decisions and considerations
are fallible, whereas routines and established procedures
are the distilled wisdom of years or decades of decisionmaking.
Routines are what separate order from chaos.
Make an exception once, and it sets a dangerous
precedent; make an exception twice, and the door to
anarchy is opened.

-Regain Luck when you are able to preserve your
routine, and each time you avoid reevaluating anything
or making a decision about a situation based on its
individual merits. At the Storyteller's option, more
points may be awarded for truly impressive sweeping

As a facilitator, moderator, arbitrator, conciliator and
peacemaker, you always seek to make things better. You
pride yourself on your rationality, your judgment and
your ability to deduce a reasonable explanation when
given the facts. You struggle to promote truth, but you
understand how difficult it is to ascertain. You respect
justice, for that is the way in which truth can reign. In
your view, people are resources but are difficult to
manage and employ. You hate dissension and
arguments, and shy away from dogmatism. Sometimes
Judges make good leaders, though a lack of vision can
sometimes cause them to maintain the status quo instead
of searching for a better way.

- Regain Luck when you are able to successfully
separate the truth from a web of lies or can convince
disputing individuals to agree.

You are the type of person who is always alone, even in
the midst of a crowd. You are the wanderer, hunter and
lone wolf. Though others might think of you as lonely,
forsaken, isolated or remote, in truth you prefer your
own company to that of others. There are many different
reasons why this might be so:
you don't understand people, you understand people too
well, people dislike you, people like you too much, or
you are simply lost in your own thoughts. Your reasons
are your own.

- When you manage to accomplish some significant task
on your own, without the aid of others, yet which still
aids the group in some way, you regain Luck.

You have always been fascinated by others. Why do
people behave as they do? What thoughts and emotions
affect their actions? The cognitive processes that
influence the choices people make intrigue you.
Sometimes just asking people questions about their
actions can yield important information, but often
people do not truly understand their own motivations
and concerns. In these cases, it is far easier to set up
situations -experiments, if you will - to see how people
behave. You attempt to manipulate these situations for
your personal advantage, in order to discover more
information about your chosen subjects. Some might
call these experiments cruel, but to you it is mere
scientific necessity.

-Regain Luck whenever you manage to set up an
incident or situation that allows you to gain new insight
into your subject's psyche.

All possess the martyr instinct, but few act upon it. Even
fewer live the life of a Martyr, but you are such a one.
Your desire for self-sacrifice stems either from a low selfesteem,
a feeling of a lack of control, or a profoundly
developed sense of love. You are able to endure longlasting
and severe suffering because of your beliefs and
ideals. At worst, a Martyr expects sympathy and
attention because of his or her suffering, and may even
feign or exaggerate pain or deprivation. At best, a
Martyr will choose to suffer injury or even death rather
than renounce his religion, beliefs, principles, cause or

- Regain Luck when you sacrifice yourself in a real and
immediate way for your beliefs or another individual.

You like to push the boundaries and try to see how much
you can take - how much pain you can tolerate before
you collapse. You gain a certain satisfaction from
suffering humiliation, degredation and even mutilation,
especially when you are the cause of your pain and have
some control over it. You know that your need is
somewhat perverse, but you know you aren't crazy. This
is just the way you are.

-Regain Luck whenever you suffer in a new way.

The world is full of people who want things; sometimes
people want the exact same thing. Some people have
what other people want and would be willing to talk
about working out a deal, but just don't know how to
start. These people often have immense trouble finding
and communicating with each other. That's where you
come in. You are dedicated to mediating between people
- fulfilling needs, smoothing over disputes, and
generally helping people talk to one another. You are the
diplomat, the middle child, the perpetual person in the

-Regain Luck whenever you are able to act as a gobetween
between two individuals or groups, and if you
taking things to a satisfactory conclusion. The
Storyteller may award more points for particularly
outstanding mediation.

You are terror personified, rife with cruelty and a desire
to cause suffering. The cruelty you commit is not
limited in shape or fashion - anything is fair game, from
the youngest child to the frailest elderly adult. There is
no discrimination for a Monster - he can spend hours
immersed in a session of horrible torture. Gaining
enjoyment from it is one of the key provisions. Monsters
may not appear abnormal or cruel to onlookers - until it
is far too late.

-Regain Luck if you cause extended pain and suffering
upon someone and have it further your plan for
cleansing the world.

"Everything always turns out for the best." That is the
motto of your life, and you know if you can just stay
cheerful and stop worrying, your problems will never be
with you forever. Some call you a fool, but even they
have to admit you're happier than they are. Certainly
you'll encounter difficulties from time to time, but
there's no sense in worrying yourself to death in
advance. Don't worry, be happy, and have a nice day.

-Regain Luck when things turn out for the best, just
like you said they would. You must predict such an
outcome, either out loud to the other characters or to
yourself (tell the Storyteller).

The Nonpartisan deals with people and information and
enters situations with no preconceived notions. He
measures people on what they say and do, not by thier origins,
appearance, or mannerism, allowing all an oppportunity
to show their stripes before deciding how to deal with them.
Rumors, information, or intelligence is rarely accepted at
face value unless the source is impeccable.
This is not to say that they act without planning or are
never impetuous, simply that they accept few things as
facts without testing them.

-Regain luck if your resentment of popular belief about
a situation or a subject's nature is vindicated.

You love to see other people happy, and do whatever you
can to encourage them, whether through playing
matchmaker or refilling a drink. Perhaps you live
vicariously through their experiences or perhaps you just
feel that others sometimes need a little push from you to
find their fulfillment. You spend more time on this than
you do pursuing your own interests and gain great
pleasure from it. A skilled manipulator, you work most
of your magic from behind the scenes, dropping hints or
subtle encouragement.

-Regain luck whenever you cause someone else's
happiness or fun without them realizing your part in it.

You are a straightforward, uncomplicated person whith a
strong moral and ethical code. Being comfortable with
plan-talking and open plans, you disapprove of
underhanded tactics, lying, and subterfuge. Neither
naive nor foolish, you are solid and reliable, and your are
as good as your word. Farmers, cowboys, and factory
workers often fit this Archetype. You must take
Honorable 2 to have this.

-Regain Luck if your straight dealing triumphs over

You've been a few places, seen a few things, and picked
up a thing or two along the way - and you like to tell
everyone about what you've learned. Teaching is your
avocation, if not necessarily your profession. In your
time you've seen inexperience and ignorance lead to all
kinds of misery and misfortune, and it pains you too
much to stand by and watch this occur. You are
dedicated to passing on what you have learned for the
benefit of others - not only skills and knowledge, but
also wisdom and experience. If given the chance, you
will drone on and on and on.

-Regain Luck whenever you see (or discover) that
someone has benefited by something you taught or
showed her.

You are unworthy. You are sinful. You are base, vile and
lacking in virtue. You have no right to exist and are
utterly beyond redemption. Either because of a low selfimage
or because of a spectacular trauma in your past,
you feel compelled to spend your life making up for
what you are, what you lack or what you have done. You
owe it to Creation at large to offer repentance for the
crime of your existence. You struggle nightly to make
amends for your weakness, and your nightly dream is to
be able, at last, to overcome it. But you know you are
weak and beyond hope.

-Regain Luck whenever you are able to do a good deed
for someone to whom ( in reality or in your imagination)
you have been an inconvenience, annoyance or danger.
For particularly outstanding acts of penitence or
recompense, the Storyteller may award extra points.

You can't stand imperfection, not in others and certainly
not in yourself. Neither can you tolerate those who do
not do everything they can to do their best, to make
everything neat and proper and right in their lives.
Though you may be strict with others, it is with yourself
that you are most critical -
everything must always be in its place, and you must
always do and be the best.

-Regain Luck whenever you accomplish something
flawlessly, without a single mistake, falter, wound,
hesitation, confusion, hindrance or obstruction. This
usually comes in the form of Critical Successes.

Everything you do is planned. Very little springs from
you spontaneously. Your plans are often long and
involved, sometimes extending beyond the lives of the
mortals involved in them. Details must be exact, for you
believe any deviation could bring ruin. You try to plan
everything in your life; each thing you do must
accomplish something in the greater scheme. Deviation
from routine, however, is bothersome, not traumatic.
You are organized, not autistic. You tend to be neat and
precise in everything you do.

- You regain Luck when one of your plots comes to
fruition in the exact manner you planned.

Meeting trouble (or anything else) head-on is the tactic
of fools and optimists. The sensible way to deal with
trouble is to deny it a target. While some people might
accuse you of sticking your head in the sand, they do
have to admit that it has remained on your shoulders for
quite some time, and looks like it will continue to do so
indefinitely. You never confront what you can evade, and
never face anything unless there is no other option.
Courage is not high on your list of virtues, but then the
line between courage and folly is virtually nonexistent to
your eyes.

-Regain Luck whenever you are able to avoid a problem
or situation without dealing with it.

You self-worth is based entirely on the opinions of
others. You crave approval and praise, and will go to
extreme lengths to get such - even risking yourself and
things you love. Unlike the Sycophant, you do not think
of protection, and you have no thought of using others'
good opinions to your own advantage - you simply crave
praise and approval for their own sake, so you can feel
good about yourself.

-Regain Luck whenever another character offers
unprompted praise, admiration or appreciation.

You seek the Answer to life's questions. This can be a
metaphysical object such as the Holy Grail, or it can
instead be a introspective spiritual retreat into your own
consciousness. You might be on a pilgrimage in order to
further your understanding of existence. You might also
move from place to place, studying people and battling
evil. Kane from Kung Fu had this Nature.

-Regain Luck if you solve a mystery of the universe, or
gain insight into the (in)human condition.
Enlightenment is worth more points.

You are a malcontent, iconoclast and free-thinking
recalcitrant. You are so independent-minded and freewilled
that you are unwilling to join any particular cause
or movement. You are just yourself and only desire the
freedom to be yourself. You do not make a good follower
and aren't usually a very good leader either (unless your
followers are willing to go wherever you lead). You tend
to be insubordinate to authority to the point of stupidity.

- Regain Luck whenever your rebellion against the
status quo turns out to be for the best.

For some reason, you want to leave your past far, far
behind you; though as hard as you try to forget it, the
past will forever haunt you.

- Regain Luck when you shake aside someone/something
that reminds you of your past, and do so without

You hold freedom dearly and desire justice, and will do
whatever is necessary to hold on to these precious
liberties. Unlike the Rebel, your urge is not to resist
ALL authority, but rather to fight corruption in the
system where you find it.

-Regain Luck when your questioning or resisting
leadership or the status quo turns out to be best for
you/your party/or those you are trying to protect.

Screw the world! You do what you need to look out for
yourself and get done what has to get done. If someone
else suffers in the process, that's just too bad.

-Regain Luck when your self-centered methods gain
you something of significant value.

The Soldier not only gets through difficult situations,
with competence and deterimination,
but he helps his companions through as welll,
maintaining morale and keeping them forcused. Any
person with the strength of will to face adversity with
resolve and keep the interest of his comrades at heart
embodies this Archetype.

-Regain luck if your actions sustain the team through
difficult or adverse conditions.

Rather than stpping out into the limelight you prefer to
support and help those who do. You are Tonto to the
Lone Ranger, Watson to Holmes, Kato to the Green
Hornet. You care nothing for glory or recongnition, but
merly seek the chances to be a small part of the process.
You abide by the words of your present hero, and no
task is to menial for you if your hero requests it.

-Regain luck if you played a supporting role in an
accomplishment, but take no credit for it.

Stoics seek to remain emotionally calm at all times.
Problems can be solved and overcome through
composure and by keeping a cool head, not by giving in
to hysterics or passion. Stoics deal with the facts in front
of them and try not to let their own emotions sway the
course of events. The calmly try to reach the most
efficient, economical, and effective way to solve the

-Regain luck if you can overcome a setback or loss
without giving in to anger or other strong emotions.

No matter what, you always manage to survive. You can
endure, pull through, recover from, outlast and outlive
nearly any circumstance. When the going gets tough,
you get going. You never say die, and never give up -
never. Nothing angers you as much as a person who
doesn't struggle to make things better, or who
surrenders to the nameless forces of the universe.

- Regain Luck whenever you survive a difficult situation
through your own cunning and perseverance.

In the grand scheme of things, you are small and weak
and unfit for survival. Your best hope is to find someone
who is more powerful than you are and persuade her to
take care of you. In return you will serve, admire and
follow her. You will do anything she says, unless it puts
you in great risk. In any type of uncertain situation, you
will attach yourself to the seemingly strongest person,
siding with her, performing various services and
generally trying to ingratiate yourself. Thereby you hope
to earn some kind of protection. There is no limit to the
depths to which you will lower yourself in order to be
accepted, and you have no pride.

-Regain Luck whenever a stronger character to whom
you have attached yourself acts in your defense, be it
siding with you in an argument or protecting you from
physical harm.

The Beast
You seek to conquer all who oppose you, destroying
them if possible. Your world view is defined by those
who bow to you and those who get eaten because they
don't. To you, all are like chess pieces on a board, and
you have no consideration for anyones' needs but your
own. You take what you want without asking, and you
destroy those weaker then yourself for lulz.

-Regain luck if you remove significant opposition to
your goals.

Thrill Seeker
When the adrenaline kicks in and your heart is beating
quickly you feel truly alive. Skydiving, bungee jumping
and leaping across roofs on a dare are all just par for the
course. As a junkie is addicted to his particular brand of
poison, you are addicted to danger. Unlike most, you go
out of your way to place yourself in dangerous situations
that test the limits of your abilities. You train and work
to be as ready as you can for these situations, and then
you seek them out. This is what sets you apart from the
teeming masses of paranoid dullards who shuffle
around, hiding from their own shadows.

-Regain Luck whenever you accomplish a particularly
daring feat or overcome a nearly impossible situation in
which you deliberately placed yourself.

You are an orthodox, conservative and traditional
individual. What was good enough for you when you
were young is good enough for you now. You almost
never change. In general you are opposed to change for
the sake of change - what point is there in that? You may
be seen by some as a miser, a reactionary or simply an
old fogy. You strive to always preserve the status quo.

- Regain Luck whenever you are able to protect the
status quo and prevent change.

There are very few who are brave or strong or
imaginative enough to look beyond the suffocating
embrace of society and mundane thought and see
something more. Society treats such people with both
respect and contempt - for it is the Visionary who
perverts as well guides society into the future. You may
be a spiritualist, shaman, New Ager, mystic, philosopher
or inventor, but whatever you are, you are always
looking for something more. You see beyond the bounds
of conventional imagination and create new possibilities.
Though you might have your head in the clouds and are
often of an impractical bent, you are filled with new
ideas and perceptions.

- Regain Luck whenever you are able to convince others
to believe in your dreams and follow the course of action
outlined by your vision of the future.

Settling down just is not your thing-whether you're
running away from something or simply longing to see
new places, the road is your home.

-Regain Luck when you complete your purpose in one
place and move on, leaving no loose ends or attachments.
