>>45322226 I've already changed a half dragon to a duel to buy the rest of the party a chance to get away and I'm younger than pic related. That said they're a bunch of idiots who can't inveterate for shit so I may think twice next time.
Probably yes. Not because he has some attachment to the party but because he has nothing left to lose. If something happened to his pet guineafowl Geshud he'd probably put the crossbow to his own head.
>>45322226 He's willing to die for one other member of the PC group because me and that player wrote our backstories together. There are also some NPC followers he'd be willing to die for. Everyone else in the party can go suck a fat one.
Absolutely not. Those chucklefucks don't deserve a man who would lay down his life for them. He'll certainly put himself in harm's way for them, but he wouldn't risk death for their sake. Definitely not for the elf's sake.
My character has so far; >Thrown another PC out of a corridor and locked the door after her to delay a vampire >Wrestled a rabid tiger >Soaked bullets from an entire hit squad >Intimidated a baddie into letting them go by going up to him and his goons with a primed grenade in his hand >Grabbed a ghoul by the neck and wrestled it into a fire and kept in pinned there >Taken a bullet meant for someone else >Pushed another PC away from a bomb blast >Covered the group from shrapnel with his own body
Still alive, tho. The character has achieved reputation both in-game and out of character as being virtually indestructible.
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck no. My guy is just a vagabond who got caught up with the wrong crowd and wants to get out, but the only way out with these psychopaths is in a body bag.
>Initiate of Verena who stole a forbidden book and is being hunted by Sigmarites/ Witch Hunters >Hedge Wizard who survived a brutal winter and is also being hunted by the Witch Hunter >Norscan Whaler who is wanted for piracy, claims he is not a pirate >Elf Boatman who acts like Captain Jack Sparrow, is also wanted for piracy
>>45322226 Almost did in the second encounter on the grounds that "you short-lived races should at least be allowed to live longer than this". Lived in single digits off of DM fiat.
Of course nowadays the only one he'll let kill him is the pacifist bard he's dating, or his family if they're sufficiently disappointed with him. He's lost just about all respect for the fighter due to a thing involving arson, the rogue is the fighter's lackey and therefore has been discounted only half the lost respect, the barbarian I'm fairly certain is incapable of dying, and if the 3.5 wizard can't make it out on his own, then that's just natural selection.
Needed a while to think on this one. It'd always be a serious dilemma, but I'm the tank. It's my job to be the first one to die.
Note my use of the word "first". Our party is very pragmatic and either all fight or all run away. Dying for the group now means you're not there to save them later. (for the record, I think only the bard, who's just joined us a couple weeks ago, and a gish, who quit a while back, HASN'T saved at least one party member yet)
Yes. Campaign's a future thing in space, but there's magic too. He's blond hair, blue eyed, with a prosthetic left hand.
He's also a sealed genie in a can, but can't use any of his magic, ever. No unsealing in the middle of combat, there's basically no way to get him unsealed it's just background now. Unsealed he's immortal and unkillable. Now, though modern science, he's an unaging immortal.
Problem: the party isn't his party. He's sealed because he laid down his life/freedom/immortality for his party centuries ago. He likes the player group just fine, but they aren't the ones he loved enough to lay down his life for.
>>45322226 I've only ever had one character who really was the self sacrificing type. Bob daNob (aka the Vanilla Gorilla). Bob was an Ogryn, and even for an Ogryn he wasn't bright.
His primary tactic in ranged combat was to throw grenades at people. His primary tactic in melee was to throw grenades at people (dey barely 'urt 'im anyway). His primary stealth tactic was to sit real quiet until it was grenade time.
Bob daNob fought big stuff, and he won. Sure, the team was helping out with their guns, but the vanilla gorilla knew in his heart that he was doing his part.
Bob daNob died shooting a carnifex point blank with an autocannon until it swallowed him whole. In his dying breath, he threw grenades in the closest combat of his life, and while the beast yet lived he bought his squad time to flee. Bob did a good.
Absolutely. He's got a ball lodged in his back that's being used to track him and will explode if it's removed so the plan is if we are in dire straights I run up to the big bad and our ranger shoots me right in the back so I go out in a blaze of glory.
>Shadowrun: Elf MILF Mystic Adept Nope! >DnD: Paladin of Devotion In a heartbeat. >Stars without numbers: A grizzled veteran elite Warrior I guess? He would definitely risk his life to protect the others but he'll try hard to stay alive >Adeptus Evangelion Borderline: Operative Director Died for our sins. >MaidRPG >What is death?
