The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

 

Modern democracy is: the sheep voting for which dog will be the shepherd's right hand.

I want Forton to be that annoying uncle who cracks awkward jokes at you and gives you suprisingly well advice on what to do next and him to be an disenchanted monk who has a dark and serious past. Maybe he killed his master, or some fallout happened between him and his monk order and they have been hunting him for two decades now.

 

Better yet a suicidal old man who decides to tag along because being killed by raging monsters sure are more interesting than drinking hemlock.

So... Jolee Bindo minus the light saber?

For some reason I read this as Joe Biden

Yes, well, when have you ever seen Joe Biden without a light saber? That's right. Never!

I think the problem is that Forton's facial expression in the concept art did not portray the characteristics of a warrior/fighter. He looks like a weak man who has been enslaved and tortured.

 

Not weak, meek. He is a monk, after all.

I said he looks weak, not he is weak. Despite his appearence, he is probably an experience fighter though.

I'm not judging this book by its cover

Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.

I dont get it. He wears little clothing because he is a minimalist monk with few possessions. He's balding and wrinkly because he's old. There looks to be a sadness in his eyes. As if he doesn't want to fight but does so for the greater goal whatever that is for him. Looks like a pretty good base for an interesting character to me.

I also like how he doesn't look like your regular joinable npc. I wouldn't say he looks weak but I think the way a character finds strength in spite or because of a said weakness makes them extremely interesting. A trend with a lot of martial artists is their longevity i.e their ability to maintain high physical fitness in spite of their age. So, to me, Forton isn't cliche or completely ridiculous. He's just right even wih the kung fu pants. Calling him horrible looking and old peasant is a bit silly. Someone mentioned bad character design. A good story to go with the picture would solve a lot of issues.

I can get behind this, It's mostly the way the character is drawn/positioned that makes me dislike him, stripped down to his base attributes I have no problem with forton.

I just don't understand how people can call him weak. He's lean, but have you seen those muscles? I certainly am not that ripped.

But that's what's so weird about the design, his body is super buff, but his face looks like a glass of warm milk.
