PostSubject: Nicolae Grimtide   Sun Apr 18, 2010 11:31 pm

So, I was thinking about using a character who for once isn't connected to ANY of my other chars...

Brief overview: This is a half-orc character I came up with once. He WAS a blacksmith, but I'm not sure if I'd keep him as that or have him do something else with his brawn... and I wasn't intentionally trying to base him off of pre-existing half-orcs (such as the ones in D&D), since I know little about orcs in the first place.


Strengths:
Natural-
*Physically strong; able to do heavy-lifting, although it isn't herculean strength he's got
*Great stamina
*Intimidating; given his height and build and the fact that Nicolae looks kind o' mean anyway, he has the possibility to intimidate others
*Tough-skinned; his skin is slightly tougher than that of an average human
*Sharp teeth; especially the canines, which are not unusually long but are unusually sharp

Magical-
N/A

Supernatural-
*Animals; wild, tough animals seem to calm down around Nicolae unless/until he triggers a fight-or-flight reflex
*Slightly increased hearing

Learned-
*Blacksmithing and weapons knowledge; knows how to weild heavier weapons
*Some improvization knowledge


Weaknesses:
*Heavy; makes swimming and moving quickly an issue
*Slower reflexes and agility (also not the sharpest tack in the box)
*Suspcious of dwarves and elves as a whole and others who easily associate with them
*Fits of rage/bezerking
*Not 'zactly pretty looking; funny colored skin, generally mean looking, gruff speaker, and very hairy
*Not magically inclined at all
*Can't stand temperature extremes
*Isn't a gentleman; he doesn't go out of his way to be a mean person, but his orcish blood can make him into a rude, boorish fellow on occasion
*Lack of feeling; his tougher skin doesn't make for a good sense of touch, and there are times where he might not feel a hot pot on his skin or a cut somewhere on his person


... That's all I've got right now. XD I really haven't touched the fellow since I made him back in... 2007, I believe? I'd appreciate some input on him, even if I end up never using him in Skuldhellir.

On the other hand, COULD I make him a bit of a gentle giant? I think my original idea of him was that his human blood and possible upbringing might've toned down his orcish half, and being a blacksmith around humanoids had sort of taken some of the edge off of any savageness he could've had. I have no idea if it'd be an okay break away from orc-ish clich├ęs...

Derp. Moron who can't sleep ahoy. Since this isn't official and just the construction thing, I thought I'd waste your time!

Strengths
*Strength(*flex*): 3
*Stamina:2
*Intimidating: 1(while I say this would generally hit home, the town is quite used to orc invasions, and being a rough town as it is, I assume it'd lower that down. Dwarves don't take your shit.)
*Thick Skin: 2
*Sharp teeth: 1
*He could run a petting zoo: 1
*Good ears: 1
*Blacksmithing and weapon knowledge: 3-4 (could really be useful in Skuldhellir)
*Might star on Whose Line is it anyway: 1



Weaknesses
*Needs to lay off the twinkies: 2
*Not sharp. Bad reaction time: 2
*Suspicious of dwarves and elves: 2
*Anger management: 2
*Unnattractive: 1
*Not magically inclined(if he's not weak to it, is it really a weakness as a warrior?): 0
*Can't stand extreme temperatures: 1
*Lacks class: 1
*Lack of feeling: 2


Strengths total: 15-16
Weaknesses total: 13

Approved as much as a nobody can do. I like the idea. I'm not sure the citizens will like an orc (half or not), wandering the town though. Which should be very interesting.

"*Might star on Whose Line is it anyway: 1"
*dies and is DEAD* I love how you reword my stuff, Kinz. XD Thanks for puttin' in some input! I'm pleased to see that big hulk of half-orc seems to be able to be balanced out. x3
