    Galactic Keep: Dice Battles Create a Character Contest Complete


    CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!

    The winner (as you can see above) is 'Trent Taylor' created by VegantTNT. This character will be one of the initial playable characters to choose from in the game!

    We’re going to work out the character’s stats etc. and we’ll post the initial character card (before the player-rolled stats are added) for this character soon!

    Second Place is ‘Panther Uteri’ created by Walsh06. At the moment, we’re deciding where exactly to use this character, but we have decided that they will be featured…somewhere…in the game!

    Congratulations to the other two finalists and a big thank you to all of those who entered with their AMAZING ideas for characters! It's not too surprising that the Touch Arcade forum houses a user base with such creativity!

    Name: Panther Uteri
    Race: Robot
    Class: Hunter
    Weapon: Medium

    Bio: This is an robot who was put together in such a rag tag manner that he feels he needs to exert his revenge on those who did this to him. But instead of just taking it out on the orthodon scientists (im just going with them but it can be changed) he takes it out on all. He works for no one and his loyal to none. He attacks silently and from the shadows. But on occasions he can go into such a rage that his attacks are uncontrolable.

    can we enter more than once?

    My character H.A.C.K.R.

    Name- H.A.C.K.R. (Hostile Attack Concentrated Killer Robot)
    Race- Robot
    Class- Warrior
    Favorite Weapon type- Medium (multiple katana-like swords as arm extensions)
    Bio- A robot that was originally created by the humans for hacking into enemy defense systems and being able to hold it's on in a battle, this robot was shutdown after a malfunction that destroyed years of time-travel experiments and progressions. It was thought to be shut off, but then it was found to be "alive" when several rolling blackouts and navigational systems were malfunctioning. It is a humanoid built robot with four arms, two equipped with katana-like swords, and and antenna on the top of it's head to send radio transmissions.

    I apologize if this information is already available elsewhere, but I'm wondering if there's any way you could give a little more hint as to some of those other races. Like is one insectile? Xenophobic? Deeply religious? Little hints without giving too much away - just something to help with the inspiration. Thanks.

    Name: Lyrim Suthorn
    Species: Human
    Class: Pirate
    Favored Weapon Type: Hand to Hand

    Known for her deep loathe of the cowards that use appliances to take on their prey, Lyr takes great pleasure in feeling her victim's last breath pass through her very hands. Not a friend to her fellow pirates, a loner since youth, she finds her greatest solace in practicing her martial arts alone, with nothing more than the voices in her head to guide her.

    Name: Srretio’il
    Species: Pakall
    Class: Coalition
    Favored Weapon Type: Time Master

    Srretio’il was raised in the low huts of Tolern and educated strongly in his family’s grace and approval for the path he had chosen. He would learn to master his abilities as a Time Master for the good of intergalactic relationships; and dreamed of sharing diplomatic missions with those of the human race. While his fledgling abilities as a Time Master were something he appreciated, he did not flaunt this as so many before him; he understood that one day it would help in saving the galaxy.

    Name: Rex Illru
    Species: Balthwot
    Class: Hunter
    Favored Weapon Type: Large Projectile

    (More flavor than Bio)

    Waking as the suns disappeared over the horizon, Illru rose with the evening’s prayers whispered between his teeth. His desire for a quick hunt so he might return to his prayer stall was the only thing on his mind. The killing was mindless, a part of his being. He had no idea why the killing was necessary, or further, how he became an assassin, all he understood was that without it, he would feel dead inside.

    1. Name- Croatl
    2. Species- Robot
    3. Class- Hunter
    4. Favored Weapon Type- Large
    5. Bio-
    A warbot created by a long extinct race of beings, An invincible robotic weapon was created to be the deciding factor in any conflict it's creators sent it into. To assure it's victory it's creators programmed into it a strong hate of all organic life, but to prevent their own extinction they made it extremely loyal to their species. As the warbot was exterminating a planet of it's enemies, a powerful acid rain fell from the polluted sky. Over the course of the warbots one-sided battles the acid dripped into a small crack in the robots armor, getting into it's memory circuts. The loyalty to it's masters was eradicated as the information in it's head was scrambled. It aimlessly wandered, and still having the hate for all living things, kills anything it comes across.

    Name: Froz'el
    Species: Pakall
    Class: pirate
    Favored Weapon Type: Time
    bio:
    The product of an experiment, froz'el was implanted with perception enhansers in his skull as a child. The purpouse of the experiment was to see if a child with better reflexes would gain skills faster. Essentially the machines in his head allowed his brain to precieve things faster than normal, giving him 2 seconds of awareness for every 1 second normal people have. Over time he learned how to to speed this up even more, letting his reflexes get so fast that when he ran the air itself gave him friction burns. At the age of 20 (with the experience of at least a 40 year old) he built more machines to increase the ones already in him, so he could actually stop time. During the surgical implanting of the machines his brain was damaged. He awoke on a pirates ship and modeled his behavior after the captain, and thus a pirate was born.

    An orphan, left for dead among the remains of a trade vessel after a Pirate raid above Taarses. Found and adopted by Balthwot missionaries, Trent has been raised to follow their beliefs.

    Sure, this should help a bit. (Don't want to give too much away though):

    human: humans appeared in this galaxy mysteriously several hundred years ago with no way to get home (the game takes place in what would be the mid 1800's on Earth).

    robot: look here, post #81

    gharsos: *NEW* look here, post #154

    orthodon: Very secretive. Time science is a focus in their culture. They head the Coalition and are a politically powerful species in the Galaxy.

    pakall: look here, post #143

    balthwot: look here, post #75

    reouge:Bio-engineers, deal in contraband, consider themselves 'above the law'. More on these guys later.

    Name: Helmut Farnsworth
    Species: human
    Class: Coalition
    Favored Weapon Type: Small, blade
    Bio:
    This man is lightly built with a ruddy complexion and dark black hair. He has been in service with the Coalition for years, though is apparent age can not be discerned. His appearance is average in every way, save the slight stutter that forms upon his lips when he is excited. He is favored by his leadership for his cunning and ruthless disregard for anything but achieving his designated mission. The man is a xenophobe.

    Name: Eae
    Species: Gharsos
    Class: Ethelion
    Favored Weapon Type: Envelopment
    Bio:
    Having been constituted for years, this Gharsos hive/swarm has formed very tight attachments to its constituent parts. Though it has asymmetrically spawned an offspring once, it does not react well to the presence of other Gharsos and prefers to operate alone. The particles have, over time, gained a fondness for Pakall and Balthwot flesh. When hungry, the hive/swarm will hunt and envelop its prey, feed, and take the form of its victim.

    Name: Leylene Trall
    Species: Human
    Class: Warrior
    Favored Weapon Type: Large Vibro-Axe (Zelene)

    Zelene always cuts clean,
    Bone and flesh, left behind on the scene.
    Hoisted high and brought down by Leylene,
    Out of need, never to be mean.

    "Zelene's Story" Tale of the Vibro-Axe, tatoo'd on Leylene's left forearm. A cheeky piece of work, many times the last literature read by his victims.

    No, they never laughed in his face.

    WOW! Some pretty amazing submissions so far. Keep 'em coming. Especially love the ones that tie in existing mythos and species traits.

    We'll be doing another "MEET THE..." next week with more info no one of the species so that should give you more to work with ;)
