More Vanguard Character Creation Fun

I spent some more time last night playing with the Vanguard character creation tool.  I am trying to create a character that I can get into.  A character I can feel good about playing. 

I do not even need an outstanding character, just one I can look at and not feel embarrassed about.

The character creator isn’t a big help here.  For one, why is grey hair the default option?  My hair is not grey (not yet) and I have no yearning to get there.  Doughy, grey haired, and apathetic should not be the starting point.  Handsome, young, and virile should be the mid-point selection, and I should be able to go up (or down) from there.  I am already middle-aged, I do not need a character that is also past his prime.  This is, after all, the “Saga of Heroes” not the “Saga of Zeroes!”

Eventually I got to a character I could do something with.  This is hardly ideal, but it is a start.

I present to you, Hervé Villechaize:


You know if I find a white suit, there will be no stopping me.  Now if somebody will work on a Ricardo Montalban to group up with me, we will become a force to be reckoned with!

    Tell me that’s not a human! You roll out with that and you’re just asking to be thrown through a window by a Rodger Moore-a-like!

    All puts me in mind of the *hours* I spent trying to make an Oblivion character that didn’t look like they’d been hit in the face with a shovel. Great mini-game that…

    Indeed! An you pointed out something to me that I forgot to mention.

    Hervé here is a gnome. That is not at all obvious (to me at least) from the picture.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
