Signature Character #1 – Cube (Sinister RPG)
Sinister RPG is the newest in the line of games developed for Third Eye Games. For this one, you get to come along for the ride.
This time we are talking about signature characters. The way that I design my games gives a lot of room to wiggle, so I like to include example characters, not only for pregens to use at con or quickplay options, but also as a way for players to see what a character could be. Since we’ve discussed Shadow Valley, I thought I’d give some idea of the sig character that area. His name is Cube.
Cube is a kid about 10 or 11 years old, dark skinned with short hair and a determined expression. He lives in Shadow Valley, so he’s well equipped to deal with anything that happens on his travels. The flack jacket and tactical knife have been pilfered from the corpse of a security officer; his jury-rigged glove requires an external battery pack to function. I has goggles resting on his forehead, a scar on his cheek and a gas mask that can be used for clean breathable air whenever Cloud Nation lets out its exhaust.
We spent the last couple of weeks narrowing down sketches and have ended on this really awesome piece. The idea we have is for Cube to have an insect-type monster. Playing around with the name “ShockRoach” as we’re wanting it to be a lightning insect, possibly ridable like a surfboard. Sketches of that as we go along. Again. this is all in the works.
Until next time.
