This had come up in another thread.

You know how Paladins and Knights tend to be covered head to toe in armor, massive pauldrons and capes to add even more protection? It's also because they are all monster races. Compared to 99.9% of all other races, what do Humans do to the children of others and even small animals? They raise them, and most monster races are usually smart enough to know they get a better deal with the humans.

So, what would be some cool and interesting members of the new Ordo Vulpes (First name to think of, any better ideas?)

>Sir Lance Eel
A warrior who uses the hollowed out skull of a Bullette as a ram/lance to charge down enemies. What he can't mow down he uses his Spatha sidearm to cut down. He's brash, impetuous, and is missing an ear from that fight with the Bullette. He's a professional jouster, though he views the reliance on horse power to be a weakness, so he competes on foot. This has resulted him in being barred from over 15 different tournies. The only time he feels alive is from the rush he gets from running an enemy down. When not in battle he tends to act lazy and lethargic, but that's only because he prefers to not waste energy on anything other than rushing down his prey.

While publicly loved and adored, it is a closely guarded secret that the knights themselves are marginally different from the monsters they fight against.

At best they were humans who obtained strange artifacts or magical powers and try to stave off madness with discipline. But the majority are literally demons who either willingly or by force serve the kingdom.

Even better then

I went with a similar, but arguably inverted direction once.

Everyone in the land is born with a power. Generally they're pretty weak, but people have good control over them. IE a person with water summoning can't summon lots of water, or far away from them, but they can choose exactly where and what shape it arrives.

Occasionally, people with two powers are born. They are considered blessed and gifted since the synergy between their two powers often allows for considerably more effective power. For instance, someone who can negate gravity on something small they touch who can also briefly ignite anything they touched recently can light a fire a considerable distance away by flicking stuff over at it.

The kingdom and its royal family, a beacon of light and order amidst a world of darkness and fear, is protected by a circle of knights with 3 powers, rarer still. Heroes, and famous each.

Those with 4 powers? Kidnapped, beaten and tortured as children, before being thrown into the wilds to fend for themselves. To ensure that they grow up as bitter monstrosities, marauding villains to provide the knights with an enemy, a great threat to fight against.

That's retarded anon.

>> No.39176949

They get them really early. They essentially grow up wild children, like raised by wolves level wild children, without the necessary social skills to interact constructively with people. The torture stuff isn't even all that necessary, its just to try and instill an early negative association with other humans besides themselves.

The insular nature of the folk who live on the borders takes care of the rest of the process of making sure they grow up into super powered thieves at best, rampaging monsters once they snap at worst.

The knights need threats that come from outside the kingdom to justify their existence, otherwise they might as well just be superpolice around to crush rebellions, which wouldn't leave them very popular with the people.

>> No.39176999


That's exactly how it is in my setting. PCs, and powerful NPC, I. E. Adventurers, are physically and spiritually distinct from regular people by the inclusion of an Adventurer Seed in their soul (people aren't sure if this is destined from the start, or something that can awaken in anybody).

Because of the existence of people that can rip through normal soldiers like butter, most nations develop a core of Adventurers to act in an anti-adventurer capacity, take down the bad ones.

There are groups like the Star Eaters (mostly focused on taking down mages who are a threat) in the gaelic/three kingdoms China country, and in the Zarus-worshiping generic not-Britain country of Midland, there is PEREGRINE, a unit of special agents dedicated to protect against rogue Adventurers.

Their latest threat was against a group called CINDER, which wants to... Well, actually, I won't say, because my group browses /tg/. Their core members are all made up of previous PEREGRINE members, Mauler Giant, Fencer Manticore, Aegis Carbuncle, Illusionist Sphinx (goes by Mockingbird), and the leader, Magma Drake, who goes by Ignis.

One of the players, a human Soldier, is a member of PEREGRINE who idolized Magma Drake as a kid. His code name is Ballistae Griffin, which he earned from shoulder checking Mockingbird from 40 feet up with a bull rush and plowing him into the ground, causing him to die instantly.

Was the elder dragon blood thing ever referenced legitimately? Or is it just headcanon?

Because my friend and I thought it might have been something like that. Assuming wyvernians were humanoids with wyvern ancestry, hunters could have been humanoids with elder dragon ancestry. We never found any supporting evidence though. I'm not even sure if wyvernians are actually related to wyverns at all beyond the name.

A grace doesn't mean you are best, it means you have a supernatural instinctive skill at it. For example, there's one warrior guy that can read surface thoughts, a sailor that can forecast the weather for up to three days, and some others.

Yeah, the Trophy set is great for cheesecake when you don't want full metal bikinis.
not that there's anything wrong with metal bikinis, either.

Sequels fodder. Suddenly revealed to have EVEN MORE BETTER GENES (progressively. Yes, all three times.) but you beat them anyway

That must get agravaine-ting after a while.

Nah, you're getting too far from the Matter of Britain there.

Gareth and Gaheris are pretty much Good Guys and Good Knights, if not quite top tier. Agravaine is a brute and a stooge of Mordred.

The villain of the first game should probably be Agravaine, then Mordred. Gareth and Gaheris should be NPCs killed offscreen by the Iron Golem (L.A.N.C.E.L.O.T.?)
