    eek Darkangst Edgemourn the PC

    I need a QUALITY player-character named:

    Mournblade Stormwind

    (or Darkfire Steelheart, or Dagger Coldedge, Grim McAngsty, Steeldark Darksteel, or whatever)

    Fortunately PC creation may be systemized:

    Name:

    16 Twilight Razor Shackle
    17 Venom Steel Skin
    18 Wander Storm Skull
    19 Whisper True Snow

    A few try-outs:

    Talon Despairmartyr
    Dagger Razorflame
    Twilight Poisonice
    Venom Darkcrow
    Misery Whisperdeath

    Working as intended, it seems.

    Alignments that are edgy? I would say CG, CN, TN, LN, LE, NE. Gives us a nice 6 alignments.
    1d6 Alignment
    1 Chaotic good, Probably racist.
    2 Chaotic neutral, 'classic' edgy character.
    3 True neutral. Pragmatic to the core.
    4 Lawful neutral. Probably serves an evil higher power.
    5 Lawful evil. Lives by her own code.
    6 Neutral evil. Like chaotic good, but probably racist towards more people.

    Edit: The characters that are being ended up with are awesome. My tables do have a lot of bugs (killing an orc isn't much), but with the working for your family, what if your family is evil?

    Verily if Darkfire Stormwind had any tears left to shed, surely they would turn to steam upon release due to the bitter fires that rage inside one such as Darkfire Stormwind! Just a gaze from Darkfire Stormwind steel colored eyes (which were set off well by the spiked bracelets, and skull epaulets) was enough to turn one such as Grimblade Mourncloud into a mere tepid stain at the mall!
    Darkfire Stormwind tragic deal and awesomicity were such that Darkfire Stormwind only spoke of Darkfire Stormwind in the third person. Darkfire Stormwind just liked to say Darkfire Stormwind!

    This personality is good for any campaign!

    Darkedge Shadowblade's behavior and affectations are, in large part, due to this deep-seated need for understanding and acceptance. And yet, as a half-tiefling, half-aasimar assassin, given incredible gifts in the art of death that, in truth, are more of a burden than a boon, who can truly claim to understand or know him? Of course, he does what he must do to survive, and so he will tell himself, as his black-edged knife cuts the throat of one more unsuspecting nobleman, fatted on the wealth of the nation that he's enslaved with his unjust regime; but there will always be that shadow of self-doubt. The kind that can usually only be expressed during brooding internal monologues while Darkedge Shadowblade crouches, hunched and ready to leap at a moment's notice, on the silent gargoyles of the largest church in the city -- itself an impossibly large symbol of greed and lust for power given form in unfeeling stone -- as the rain pours down his hooded and implacable face.

    You gotta' have the rain. That makes the whole scene.



    It's all 'bout packing in angst and tragedy, what do you have?

    Happy Halloween!

    Ah man, edgy characters, those were the days. Although weirdly enough even my edgy characters have had normal names. I'll roll up my own edgecharacter later.
    I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and generally play in the former genre. Due to this, I generally expect the laws of physics to apply to games, and work from that perspective.

    The backstory table really needs a "by myself" point.

    Also, unusual eye colour table:

    1 - Dark Red
    2 - Deep Violet
    3 - Vibrant Green
    4 - Pitch black, including sclera
    5 - Golden Yellow
    6 - Icy Blue
    7 - Filmy white, because blind. Doesn't affect performance in any way
    8 - Roll again, add catlike slit pupil

    Wander Grimscar is a human war cleric with dark red eyes and catlike pupils. He is literally his own family members transformed into him. (Well, that sounds like a rather gruesome body horror scenario. I imagine the entire family was brutally torn apart by a monster and a powerful transformation mage created a new body from the remains to save the one family member still alive.)

    By all the fires of Hell it's now clear that without the "Unusual Eye Colour Table" a PC lacks an essential element.

    Why was it denied for so long?

    In the case that the GM reacts to your character with the idea that you're taking it too far, and/or you failed to roll option 3 on the backstory (part 1) table roll on the following table.

    1d12 Dead family member
    1 Father
    2 Mother
    3 Grandparent
    4 Sister
    5 Brother
    6 Identical twin
    7 Fraternal twin
    8 Son
    9 Daughter
    10 Self
    11 Roll twice and combine
    12 Cousin

    Assuming you wish for a more optimised deceased family AnonymousWizardPress will be releasing the Ultimate Guide to Dead Family Members as soon as I can be bothered to write it, including both a point build system and random tables to generate the vital status of over six generations of family members.

    Don't forget the gloomy motif tables:

    Color:
    1. Dark Red
    2. Black
    3. White
    4. Dark gray
    5. Deep Purple
    6. Roll twice and combine


    Motif/design:
    1. Wolf
    2. Bear
    3. Eagle
    4. Dragon
    5. Demon
    6. Leaves
    7. Stripes
    8. Random gashes
    9. Reroll, if 1-5 make it crying
    10. Reroll, if 1-5 make snarling
    11. Reroll, if wearing armor add spikes, if wearing a cloak or robe add frayed ribbony tassels to ends (like a Mistcloak)
    12. Roll twice and combine


    EDIT: leaf includes any plant motif, and the reason design 11 only includes armor and cloaks is because if you are wearing anything else you aren't edgy enough

    I remember this chart. I got Pain Painskin the True Neutral Human Outlander Hunter Ranger who works for his family. It really was not very edgy at all, but honestly would be quite fun.

    Yea, but try it with the dead family member, eyes, and motif/color, then you get:

    Pain Painskin the True Neutral Human Outlander Hunter Ranger who works for his family, had an identical twin brother who died, has deep violet eyes, and wears deep purple armor/a deep purple cloak with the helmet/hood (which he always wears up) fashioned like the head of a snarling bear. Plus, all of this introduction is happening while he is standing on a precarious rocky ledge during a thunderstorm, so you can only see him when lightning flashes. When you do see him, it is difficult to tell if the water on his face is just rain, or the brave tears of a tragic hero, and if the latter, is he truly a hero, or just a monster, lying to himself about his evil ways...

    See, edgy

    Makes me think of a recent character I had join a group: GC Vengeance Paladin who's parents were killed by vampires, so he turned to Vengeance! (No deity that I know of.) In the second session, a fellow PC had captured Raider, who had surrendered, given up the goods on where his boss was, and was blubbering "please don't kill me I don't want to die!". Ol' Vengie stabbed him in the back.

    Admittedly, this was a bandit who had killed plenty of times in the past, and all that crying and pissing of pants was probably annoying to boot.

    Why isn't there an option for Half-Aasimar Half-Tiefling? One wing black as the night that I realized my uniqueness was suffering, and the other as white as the innocence that was stolen from me by this uncaring world? Forever tormented by my own superior specialness -- about which I'm totally humble because to me it's just another source of pain -- and outcast from three worlds, or maybe more if the cosmology can be expanded to include more background reasons to support why I'm unique and special.

    That so reminds me of that one PBP I once ran where a player submitted a half-fey half-fiend vampire half-something else I forgot. I mean, I said multiple templates was okay, but i had assumed that that would be fluffed as "I'm a dark spirit of nature" or something like that, not "I had a parent who was a demon and a parent who was a fairy and then I was bitten by a vampire."

    I had an idea for a half-Drow half-Dwarf character once. There would be some mild angsting, but only over their relative intolerance for alcohol, a most unbecoming flaw in a Paladin of Moradin .

    Talon Painmark, Neutral Evil Drow Hunter Ranger, is probably played by thirteen year old who rediscovered Drizzt memes from the 90s and decided that he would be a genius and copy them now that everyone's forgotten about their source.

    Or at least, he hasn't read the books, so clearly no one else has either.

    8 - Roll again, add catlike slit pupil
    If you roll two 8s, you have horizontal slit pupils like a goat.

    If you roll three 8s, you have one horizontal pupil and one vertical pupil, and also people refuse to make eye contact with you because it makes them sorta dizzy.

    If you roll four 8s, you're from a bizarre cave-dwelling subspecies that doesn't have functioning eyes, but you can see through the pain you feel when the light hits your highly attractive hideous mutant face. No one will ever understand what it means to see the world as shades of pain.

    If you roll five 8s, your must stay blindfolded at all times because your eyes are Dark Portals Into The Hideous Terror Dimension, and they will spew forth blood demons to feast upon the world if they are ever freed from their angelic prison (did I mention the blindfold is made from angel-skin leather?). Death, too, will release the evils locked within you, but only you know this, so in order to protect the world you must constantly kill the righteous men and women who hunt you for being the abomination you know you are. Also you cry blood.

    If you roll six 8s, instead of eyes you just have knives jutting out of your face. At your option, the hilt or the blade may be protruding.

    If you roll seven 8s, you are a construct made out of an animate Robe of Eyes and the soul of a forsaken child, and to conceal your hideous eye-covered (but totally ripped and vaguely sexy) form you have to wrap your entire body in bandages like a mummy. This hurts a ton because you have no eyelids. Also, because you're an artificial human, you're only ever capable of the shadow of real emotion, and this makes you extremely angsty but in like a totally unemotional way. To control the homicidal rages your stolen soul drives you to, you must hunt down and kill serial killers who only kill other serial killers and eat their eyes, which makes you cry viscuous black slime that seeps out from your bandages.

    If you roll eight or more 8s, all of the above.

    Also if you roll eight 8s, you get mind-control spider eyes and the undying love of the Game Master.

    Man, my edgy character, Levi, just has a regular name. Still, with his tragic past (Orphan adopted by evil wizard to go and do evil deed in his name!), class (Hexblade warlock), and character design (ordinary human but with dark clothes, white hair, and a curved black sword), I think he qualifies for edgelord.

    Sounds more like a edgesquire to be perfectly honest.
    I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and generally play in the former genre. Due to this, I generally expect the laws of physics to apply to games, and work from that perspective.

    That reminds me, besides Batman, Mad Max, Elric of Melniboné,







    and

    Corum Jhaelen Irsei



    Who are the most prominent "Edgelords" of fiction?

    Well, D&D's Ur-Edgelord, Drizzle.

    Wasn't the point of Drizz't to be an anti-edgelord or did I totally misread his character?

    Oh yeah, of course!

    Thanks.

    I only read 5 pages of "Homeland", and nothing else (I think I was just too old to appreciate it), so I don't tend to think of him (despite his being so prominent in the 5e PHB).

    I guess there's also Jack Bauer from 24, and pretty much the whole continent of Westeros on GoT's, but for a character "type" that feels so ubiquitous, I'm actually having a hard time thinking of that many.

    Oh right, Naruto.

    My 12 year-old son used to be a big fan (we bought him video games for it, and he got a lot of books and DVD's in the series from the library).

    All those "hidden villages" seemed full of "edge".
