#488759 Official Wulfgard Q&A Topic

Posted by V.Metalic on 23 June 2019 - 02:53 AM



I'm not sure I understand. Not going to use it for Wulfgard? So, is this a Wulfgard question or a general mythology/folklore question? Since this is the place for Wulfgard questions, I will answer it in our universe:
There are many tales of dragons taking human form, or even of other beings such as dwarves turning into dragons permanently due the possession of cursed artifacts, etc., most famously in the case of Fafnir. Some families claim dragon blood in their heritage, citing stories such as these about their ancestors. The truth of these accounts is widely disputed, but since most dragons possess a great deal of mastery over magic, it's certainly possible that they might take on another form, either through an illusion or physical shapeshifting. Tales speak of ancient dragons taking the form of high elves and becoming great leaders among their kind, preferring to interact with the Alfar over the shorter-lived and less magically-inclined humans. They say a green dragon lives in elf form in Mímisholt with the ljosalfar, and a silver dragon rules the mythical city of Voc, high in the Jagged Edge. If any live among men, they do a good job of hiding it.


Yeah, it was a within-Wulfgard question. Just that I am not gonna use it in any Wulfgard RP, story or anything. I was just curious :) Thanks for the answer.

Are they painting their armors in camo colors for some operations? Or sticks to the white?


They are great, by the way :)

I've often found that "generic" is a term used by those who don't get to know the deeper nuances of characters who, in their outward physical appearance, feel too "familiar." It's pretty easily conquered by anyone willing to go past skin deep. ;)
If you think you are falling outside the boundaries, you could always just ask me. :shrug: I generally try to put restrictions on certain campaigns in order to bolster party cohesiveness, but one of the purposes of Errant when it was originally created was to allow for full creative freedom. You can be a human, elf, dwarf, beastman, any of the Chaos races, etc. - you could even play as a hyper-intelligent animal by being someone's familiar spirit. There are far more possibilities than I think you're giving the setting credit for.
As for a new campaign in itself, I guess I'll get a poll going soon based on some of the suggestions I've seen here, so that I can get a feel what everyone would like to do next. A poll would more clearly define what we'll be doing next. :P
Thanks for the interest again, guys. :D I've been running on low steam lately, but I really want to get something going again because I hate to abandon such great players.

Maybe you are right. Its more that I am not familiar enough. Its probabyl becuase of the few things that i recall which ma ynot be accurate. Empire = xenophobes -> not much non-human races in the Imperial domains. But I still stand by the thing that I cannot make "generic character". I cannot have a normal human. Always I must have something unusual, as I was reading your reply one of two ideas were actually based on species for my own thing, a octopii-like race, and a rabbit-like race, which I was at the time inspired by Rabbit of Caerbannog :D


I cannot think "normal", which I actually want to play as. :)

#483352 ZONE - The Odyssey (Victorian spacecraft)

Posted by V.Metalic on 12 March 2017 - 07:43 AM

Cayden Warmann was an experienced pilot and professional. So when the mission was about to begin he was inspecting their shuttle. Rico Capulet was doing the prefligth checks from the cockpit while Cayden was looking over the exterior. It was much easier to check a starfighter than shuttle because of the size and complication, but he liked it nonetheless. It was a perfect excuse to do lazy around but that wasnt his intent, he took his job seriously but with joy.
Everything was perfect, the mechanics in the hangar bay were doing their work well, same as the rest of the ship. Odyssey was the best Victorian explorer after all, no less can be expected.
The new mission was evidently a special case, from the composition of the team to which Cayden was attached as well. Their commander was a big guy, a military man who probably ate too much raw meat as a kid, a hand resting on his large Harpy Eagle pistol. Everyone was getting to talk with one another except for Cayden who continued his inspection. That is until he heard a low voice coming out from somewhere close, but weak that he barely registered it.
Hey, human!” Cayden started looking around but no one was nearby and he havent seen anyone turned to him and calling for him. No alien at least, as he caught the "human" part well. His eyes glanced to the floor and immediately widened in surprise from what he seen. There was a small hoverpad with medical kit, towed by something that looked like a big odd spider.
If not for his eyes he would have mistook it for a normal spider, but it, or rather she, had a human-like upper body and a variation of Victorian uniform made for her size. Like someone sew a doll's body to a plushie spider toy, but she, clearly a woman, was waving at him. He havent heard of any species like that but the galaxy was huge so maybe there were tiny spider-men or... was this a madness? Was it a Madness?! MADNESS?!!! Did the illness of his grandpa caught up with him this early? Well it wasnt defintiely an alcoholic delussions, he didnt drank anything in the last week.
But, this spider-woman looked real, so he crouched to her, still confused, and looked at her. “I could use a hand! ...Especially one your size!” She said. Cayden measured the size of the woman and of her baggage. It made sense.
"Aaaa... sure." He let out from his mouth and grabbed a handle of the hoverpad and pushed it into the shuttle. Likely this female was another member of their team, and defintiely the most abnormal.. He liekd it. Inside Cayden locked the medical kit in the storage so it wont fall out when the shuttle takes off. "There you go, miss..."
Than his ears picked up something that took his attention from the spider outside, toward their supposed commander.
"Especially with that one kid dyeing his hair just so he'll stand out." Oh no. You shouldnt have said that. The pilot moved to the end of the ramp and looked at Hancock with a cheerful face, but his eyes radiated the seriousness of the words he soonafter said.

"Dont question me, boss. I can think that you are nothign but a big guy who compensates something with that big gun on your hip, I can be wrong, so can you." Cayden than returned inside to the tiny woman, crouched to her and gave her a charming smile.


"Sorry for the interruption. What is your name, miss?"

Either Victorian or Yavakarese from me. Might have a question about Victory thought in helping me decide. Are there divisions, bureaus or branches of the miltiary that arent directly that of Army or Navy, like Intelligence? For example, if I will make one up (not as suggestion, but an example), "Victorian Exploration Bureau", a military division thats specifically tasked with the scientific endeavour of unknown space but has military-like training and doctrines in cases of meeting hostilities (basically Star Trek USS Enterprise's role)? Something like this?,

Thanks! :D They do, but only during mating season (the winter months on their planet). They shed the antlers for the rest of the year and regrow them later.

Ohh, I dont remember that :D Probably just got a wrong impression they got them all the time :)

Nice one :) But I noticed one thing. There was no mention of the antlers. I thought they have them.

Raven's armor is specialized for command and melee fighting, while Eel's is specialized for hacking and infiltration.

Well I meant more official description that can be added on the wiki :)
