Nobody on any recent WoD games, I remember playing Leaps at Clouds (lupus Garou) on Metro back in the day, also a few characters on various Exalted MU* and some abortive attempts to try Shadowrun Denver. I did play on a fair few oWoD games but mostly a decade or so ago and with no memory of character names.
Ohh, also my first ever MUSH, Otherspace, I played a couple of weird space lizard people before realizing the game was terrible and run by a crazy person.
DUKE HONEY! I will always be sad we didn't get to delve deeper into a potential Frenemy relationship.
The main problem with Cristoph (Duke Honey) was that was/is pretty much what it says on the tin. A duke, who is good at Duking, means the best, is capable and competent at his job, etc.
Personally I prefer characters who are on some level an asshole or who follow a belief system I disagree with in order to help ensure IC / OOC separation of goals. Difficult on a game like Arx where divine visions make it clear to everyone that no, the big IC goal is objectively correct and necessary to avoid oblivion.
Yeah, but I like to think I used Monique to bring a little conflict into Cristoph's life while I played her. :) The fact that she was ballsy enough to call him 'Duke Honey' to his face was worth a snicker!
That was fun, especially when he responded actually antagonistically to the whole 'We used to raid each other' thing. Raiding people and stealing their livelihoods in a subsistence farming economy is serious business!
I did enjoy their little confrontations. ^_^
If it helps, I did read the crisis responses before quitting. It looks like Cristoph and his vassals were responsible for murdering, burning or starving approximately 40,000 of the attacking Abandoned/Shav troops. I now only hope that whoever next plays Cristoph notices that I/he spent 100,000 silver on stockpiling winter supplies to continue such activities for the next crisis interval.
I will miss Cristoph. Sending you much love. Aka -Calista
You were absolutely helpful when I took Ailith. Thanks a lot.
