    1)I know what I am talking about when I am talking about the revolutions. The people who read the books go to the people who can't read the books, the poor people, and say, "We have to have a change." So, the poor people make the change, ah? And then, the people who read the books, they all sit around the big polished tables, and they talk and talk and talk and eat and eat and eat, eh? But what has happened to the poor people? They're dead! That's your revolution. Shhh... So, please, don't tell me about revolutions! And what happens afterwards? The same ****ing thing starts all over again!

    2)Where there's revolution there's confusion, and when there's confusion, a man who knows what he wants stands a good chance of getting it.

    3)John H. Mallory: Where are you going, for Christ's sake?
    Juan Miranda: I don't know. I don't know, but something's wrong. I went into the bank. But when I go in the bank, there's nothing there, no money, nothing.
    John H. Mallory: Oh, well, the bank and the money were transferred to Mexico City over a month ago. Well, they've been using this place for a political prison ever since.
    Juan Miranda: What? What do you mean a political prison?
    John H. Mallory: Well, I never said a thing about money. All I asked you was if you wanted to get inside.
    Juan Miranda: But you know that this bank is my life! This is my dream!
    John H. Mallory: Well, the reality of that is you just liberated 150 patriots through sheer courage in the face of danger.
    John H. Mallory: [chuckles]
    John H. Mallory: Ah yes, you're a grand hero of the revolution, now. Viva Miranda.
    Juan Miranda: [the crowd lifts Miranda on its shoulders] I don't want to be a hero! All I want is the money! The money!
    John H. Mallory: Viva Miranda!
    Juan Miranda: You taught me one thing!
    John H. Mallory: What?
    Juan Miranda: [gives Mallory the finger] How to get ****ed!

    4) the difference between genius and stupidity is genius has limits.

    Such a burst of quotes, and some pretty good ones too, thanks everyone.

    Spoiler: "**** I'm surrounded by optimists."

    -Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire

    A pessimist who just wants to naysay in piece.

    "I see so many colours you wouldn't believe!" Although this is a great quote that explains how magic can hide away in a world of science, if you are trying to get a single crazy who does believe in extra colours. Which is kind of a reversal but I think it works.
    Spoiler: "Every great person has a much more organized moral compass by their side."
    Show
    -Blindsprings: Hover Text

    The voice of reason in the group, not the one who leads, but pulls the leader back when they are about to head off in a bad direction. The voice of sober second thought.
    Spoiler: "It is called revenge and it's very healthy."
    Show
    -Boyfriend of the Dead

    Who ever this is: don't get on their bad side.

    I think his plan is to convince everyone he is not a ninja by screaming he is a ninja and wearing day glow orange, the problem is i think it might actually be working - don't remember who, in reference to a certain noisy character.

    Hey, someone else rescued this off of the later pages. Also random question, does anybody read (and hopefully enjoy) the extra comments. A recent conversation about things standing on their own has got me wondering about value added.

    Spoiler: Business, business business, casual rocket launcher.
    Show
    Someone business-like who quickly and easily resorts to overwhelming force when violence is required.
    Spoiler: {In response to getting a picture of giant tree that just appeared} "No one is going to be like, "Hmm, which enormous tree are they talking about?" if we don't have a photo."
    Show
    -Blindsprings

    Well someone seems to be more frustrated than wowed by recent events. I mean fear is the other "normal" reaction, but this isn't that either, this is "Why did there have to be a car crash on my way home today of all days?" level there might be a problem but I don't want to have to deal with it. Maybe a little bit selfish then? Still, you know if they are a PC, they are going to get wrapped up into it anyways.
    Spoiler: "Loud, proud and about to explode."
    Show
    Someone who voices their thoughts at the top of the lungs and acts on them quickly. The "proud" and "explode" might give a hint about the type of thoughts they have.
    Spoiler: "I'm just the secretary. Hand me that ammo box."
    Show
    My guess is the secretary is also security.
    Spoiler: "Well I have an eye for detail, an incredible amount of patience, pretty good hearing, inhuman strength and speed, I am trained in breaking and entering, am an accomplished fencer, I can target anything with a beating heart with near perfect-" "OK, these skills are getting weirder and less and less relevant to work in the janitorial service."
    Show
    That is some kind of superhuman (or supernatural) assassin who wants work in the janitorial service of all things. Maybe business isn't doing so hot, or maybe it is getting too hot right now. Maybe they got tired of the whole killing people thing. Still a janitor, I feel there is an extra bit to the story why they are working there, but I'm not sure from this what it is.
    Spoiler: "I rigged up dis hologram robot-thing o' my bad self to sit at my desk an' give da same vise-crackin' answers I usually do." "Does it work?"' "It spends most of its time in da principle's office, so I guess so."
    Show

    A troublemaker gadgetteer from, well anywhere they speak slightly differently would follow the idea of the accent. Also young, note the principle's office instead of the boss's office or the police station.

    Someone who is has a habit of doing things they shouldn't be doing (hence the anonymous calls), that set things on fire and doesn't bother to go outside. So responsibility is not a strong point. Or foresight or reliability? It hints as some initiative at the very least.
    Spoiler: "How did you achieve that?" "Magic." "My fault for asking."
    Show
    -Use Sword on Monster

    Some times just accepting the hand wave goes over better if it is beyond even the characters. So have a character who doesn't even pretend to understand. That is just one trait, but it is something.
    Spoiler: "Its just a tattoo with an unusual design." "Its glowing." "That is your imagination."

    They have some sort of special tattoo and are not very good cover-ups.

    This one might just save the world because they were bored. I suppose that might be an explanation for an normal getting involved in saving the world. Although there is this odd line you would have to walk between a boring or unproductive life and having some skills to help save the world.
    Spoiler: "I am acquainted with all stories from this world and others as they form the tableau of what you quaintly call 'reality.'

    I did that once, focused on social skills and then put every point I could into starting wealth.

    That is a very good question. Especially for any character buried in some strange hidden world. Or a philosophic oddball.

    This raises some questions about how a not-very-humanoid-sounding creature manages to use forms and techniques designed for a humanoid body. Perhaps they returned to the animal inspirations of some styles. Either way, I suppose if we could watch to find out.

    Is this the Region, this the Soil, the Clime,
    Said then the lost Arch-Angel, this the seat
    That we must change for Heav’n, this mournful gloom
    For that celestial light? Be it so, since he
    Who now is Sovran can dispose and bid
    What shall be right: fardest from him is best
    Whom reason hath equald, force hath made supream
    Above his equals. Farewel happy Fields
    Where Joy for ever dwells: Hail horrours, hail
    Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell
    Receive thy new Possessor: One who brings
    A mind not to be chang’d by Place or Time.
    The mind is its own place, and in it self
    Can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n.
    What matter where, if I be still the same,
    And what I should be, all but less then he
    Whom Thunder hath made greater? Here at least
    We shall be free; th’ Almighty hath not built
    Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
    Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
    To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
    Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n.

    There is no such thing as overkill. never. ever.
    I had part of a slinky once, I straightened it.
    it says something about me that of all the burning buildings i have been in over the years, only two were not burned down by me.
    the first half of the meaning of life is that there isn't one.

    It is nice when I'm not going every other post (or that is how it feels sometimes).

    -Use Sword on Monster

    A dramatic sort of cleric, they seem to be a little bit offended that they have to explain that. Maybe they come off kind of dry but aren't?

    -J. Michael Straczynski

    Always searching, every fact, story and opinion brings us closer but never quite too the truth behind it all. Sounds more like a wise quest-giver than your average PC, but I think you could make it work.

    This one might just save the world because they were bored. I suppose that might be an explanation for an normal getting involved in saving the world. Although there is this odd line you would have to walk between a boring or unproductive life and having some skills to help save the world. Why would the former give the later? Maybe they have unconventional hero skills, maybe they get by with dedication, maybe they had a few interesting hobbies.

    -PS238

    I did that once, focused on social skills and then put every point I could into starting wealth. But the end of the first session I was the quest giver, most of the PCs (and a number of NPCs) were working for my character. Of course they got most of the glory thereafter, but it was a lot of fun.

    It wasn't a superhero setting though.

    -Nothing Special

    Yeah, fighting is for slow-pokes. At this level it isn't even fear, it is just avoidance of violence through distance as a philosophy. Or maybe it is fear, but I like the idea of a character who would rather run than fight if given the choice, while being capable of both.
