The ROTK Sept progress thread So the previous blog posts I posted about doing a sept got boring because I lost interest in the variety of characters and how they were designed. This sept requires a much stricter design and build for each character. ROTK (Romance of the Three Kingdoms) is a book that chronicles the three kingdoms period in China. It is historical fiction. I have selected the characters for my sept from the people mentioned in the book. It will be done in 1.13c SC with RWM. The characters are all untwinked from the beginning but can trade with each other items they've found via Gomule. The introduction for the characters follow. Amazon: Zhu Rong. This girl specializes in the three fire arrows and can summon her own companion (Valk) because of her relation to the fire god. She was married to Meng Huo and is mentioned going into battle when Shu tried to take over the southwest. She will have a Barbarian Merc (to symbolize Meng Huo) Assassin: Diao Chan: She is a dancer (kicker) who can also trap. She restored the East Han dynasty for a little while by her skilled separation of Dong Zhuo and Lu Bu. She will also get COS and Mind Blast because she got those two into fighting each other for her beauty. Unfortunately she has no companion (SW, SM) but will get a merc (act II) for assistance. The merc (who symbolizes Lu Bu) will only be allowed to use a halberd and exceptional/ elite versions of that weapon. In the book she marries Lu Bu. Necromancer: Zuo Ci: This magician tricked Cao Cao when he first appeared before him and had powers of necromancy in resurrecting sheep that were decapitated by the general that Cao Cao sent after him. Thus, he will use revives and curses that confuse and weaken his enemies. He was also one of the causes of Cao Cao’s death according to the book. He will not have a merc in his adventures. Barbarian: Lu Bu was the most feared fighter in the period before the three kingdoms. He will use a halberd (His fame came from the weapon he used) and will have points in increased speed (to symbolize his horse) His skills will consist of whirlwind with berserk as backup. Since enemies feared his strength and presence so, he will also only use Battle Cry and War Cry, along with Howl and Taunt, in the warcries section. He will have a rogue mercenary (to symbolize Diao Chan) He takes Diao Chan for his wife. Paladin: Cao Cao, who is conveniently one of my ancestors in the family tree, was the man who started the Wei kingdom and had control of the country in the north. He will be a Frost Zealot for his zeal to take over the entire country and his coldness when dealing with enemies who do not submit to him. He is only allowed to use one handed swords and a shield ( to symbolize his prized sword, the Split Sky Sword). He is allowed to use any mercenary he wants because he was such a great recruiter. Druid: Xu Zhu was the prized bodyguard of Cao Cao and most feared fighter in Wei. His strength and power led him to win many one-on-one duels. He will be a Werebear with powers in all the werebear skills along with another bear as his sidekick (to symbolize Dian Wei- his friend and other famed bodyguard of Cao Cao). He will also not have a mercenary. Sorceress: The only girl who could match Zhuge Liang in wit and intelligence was Yue Ying. She was known as a girl who was ugly, but very intelligent. Zhuge Liang was smitten with her from the time that he heard about her intelligence and he married her. She will be a lightning/cold sorc with a Act III merc( to symbolize Zhuge Liang). This project should probably take me a while to complete. Spring Break begins next week:jig:, thank goodness, so I will have time to get a lot of work done on these characters.
