Hey everyone o/

Today I’d like to introduce you to the cast and crew of Bossgame! These are your friends, your party, the people you’ll be hanging out with the most! And here to introduce them all is none other than: Derek!

Yo, how’s it going? Anna dragged me in here to do some of the promotion work… I guess it could be fun.

So, let’s get started!



THE BOSSGAME CREW


LILY

Lily, huh? She’s alright, I guess. She started hanging out with Anna a while back. Before that, she was a town guard, or something? I dunno. She’s nice, but she’s such a goody-two-shoes and she likes to act like she’s our leader. Jeez. No idea what Anna sees in her, they don’t match at all. But, as far as fighting goes, she’s cautious, clever, and knows how to take a punch.


ANNA

This is my sister, Anna. She is a pain in the ass. She’s loud, she’s impulsive, and she likes to start fights. We hated each other when we were kids, but it’s a little better now, maybe? In the ring, she uses a bunch of crazy powerful magic, but it tends to leave her pretty beat up. She’s stubborn and she doesn’t know how to hold back.


MIRROR BOY

This frickin’ kid. This is Mirror Boy (what a dumb name) and he is just… Ugh. He never wants to fight, and all he does is whine. Why did he even come out to the Wilds? I guess Lily knows him? Anyway, he sucks at fighting, but he has a bunch of tricks he can pull with that mirror to shield us and screw with our targets. It’s useful, but… come on. A mirror?


DEREK

This guy. This bastion of manliness. This steel colossus. Have we met? I’m Derek. I don’t mess around, and I call ‘em as I see ‘em. I was a professional boxer for a few years, and then I came out to the Wilds to catch up with my sister. And, of course, she needs me to bail her out of trouble again. I’m fast, I’m versatile, I can take a punch and I can punch back harder. Sometimes I’m a bit reckless and my teammates end up paying for it… but maybe they should just get outta my way and let me do my thing!


Anyway, that’s the whole crew! We’re kind of a frickin’ mess. But, if we get our crap together, maybe we can pull this off! Later!


Ugh, I knew letting him do this was a mistake…

A pain in the ass, huh? Come back and say that again, brother dearest~



(Bossgame development presses on! With our teamwork and clever strategy, there’s nothing that can stop us! See you soon!)

Hm, this didn't reveal that much about the characters' abilities and playstyles that wasn't already known. But it's nice to have another general overview, and the writing is really well done, too. Seeing this bunch of sillies interact in the game proper is going to be great fun, I bet.

By the way, how old are the protagonists? At first I thought they were still children or barely adults. But if some of them have had jobs for some time already, they'd have to be at least a little older, correct?

I didn't want to wake up 40 years old and working a job that I hate.

Ahhh, thank you!! I'm really glad you guys like the character blogs, I've had a loooot of fun with them :D And I'm glad people like Derek, too! He's a bit of a jerk, but a loveable one? Maybe?

Yup, this one's mostly about characters themselves, and less about mechanics. I figured I'd switch it up a little, and I don't want to give away too much! I'll probably do another mechanics post next, though.

The characters are all young 20-somethings, fresh-faced and ready to face the real-world..! Or something :P
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

A character with "Boy" in his name is 20-something? What is this, DC Universe?
Don't worry. He'll hit puberty and go into his teenage rebellion phase in a few more years.

Hmm, old enough to romance. Made me entertain the thought that there could be multiple endings for the individual characters during the epilogue depending on what you had a character do.

Like: Mirror Boy spent the next few years running away from Emily the Lich who had developed a crush on him ever since he flirted with her. "If I knew this would happen, I never would have done it! Why me!?"

i bet she's a diva with a potion popping problem
