Elfquest RPG Character Dice Guide
« on: March 21, 2021, 06:18:06 AM »

Yavia was so kind to write down the how-to of creating a character according to the Elfquest role playing guide. She also made some additional suggestions to dicing your tribe and gender.
Thank you so much, Yavia!
We hope it will inspire people to try their luck with the dice and see, what crazy characters come out.
Also, if you have additions to options, let's just expand this! This is truly fun and a challenge, as you never know what you get.  ;D

In case you don't have the required dice, here's a virtual one: https://dobbelsteen.virtuworld.net/?z=100
You can alter the number of sides (like 20 or 100), and the number of dice required, and then clicking Werp (Dutch for throw) it will give random results.
Of course real dice are more fun, but if you don't have access to the non 1d6 kind, this can be helpful (results are also quicker, in case you need to create many characters).

Ohhhh thank you! I just rolled up a Sunfolk dude, this is going to be interesting :lol
One addition might be the face shape. Wendy did some heads with distinctive shapes at one point, at least for the ladies, could be a useful reference

Here he is! :lol


Think I might do another at one point, it feels like a great way to get some new input, especially if one is feeling a bit uninspired

Exactly! Sometimes it's good to get just some art out there. Doing this with Yavia felt so nice, just drawing fun stuff. Not procrastinating or overthinking. Just draw the weird character as the dice intended. :D

Okay, I looked up the face shape guide in the big Elfquest gatherum. It's cool, because there are 6 face shapes. For women only that is. Maybe you guys can help me with getting some examples for males with similar face shapes?

1 Triangular (Nightfall/Cutter?)
2. Oval Raindrop shaped (Rainsong/Skywise?/Dart?)
3. Completely oval (Clearbrook/Kimo?)
4. Heart shaped (Dewshine/Leetah/Pike?)
5. Round (Shen-Shen/Zhantee?/)
6. Square (Moonshade/Rayek?)
