I just finished listening to last Tuesday's Bombcast. The question about character creators and what the guys did with them. I figured I had my own interesting approach to that type of thing, and kinda wanted to share it with everyone here.
I've been making the same character in every character creator ever since Rock band 2. I made this character that I called Zwain, I made him kind of pseudo futuristic, like the dudes from the future near the end of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Even gave him the 80 visor style shades, super cheezy! :D
After that I made him again in Fallout 3, then Dragon Age: Origins, and finally Mass Effect; using him throughout the whole trilogy. I was playing Fallout 3 where something went awry and I ended up having to kill my way through a bunch of slaves I had just saved. Rather than reload my save, I decided to roll with it and have Zwain feeling heavy with regret. That's where I came up with the idea for time travel, for him to atone for his sins. Then something screws up on a machine and it ends up sending him back over 100 years to the late 70's, where he gets hooked into the rock and roll scene.
That was just the beginning. Since then I've come up with reasons to justify his game hopping to Dragon Age and Mass Effect. I've even started writing my own story called The Chronicles of Zwain; where I'm taking each genre of those games and coming up with my own narrative. So I got a post apocalyptic story, that ties directly with Zwain and his band prepare for the start of their first big tour. Then I have the medieval fantasy, and finally it all wraps up in a giant science fiction epic. I've just gotten to the fantasy portion of the story, and I'm having a fun time writing about Orcs and knights, and trying to fit Zwain in to their worlds. :D
Anyhow, this topic was deleted in off topic, I was hesitant to post a link to my blog where I'm posting the story(a chapter a day) at fist, and I should've listened to my own hesitations. So I decided to flesh out my post and re-post it here, since it it more relevant to last week's Bombcast.
Anyone else do neat things when making create-a-characters?
