Yea Verily!

Recommended Posts

Valkyrie is almost approved, and when she is, I will be archiving Lukos.

This is the first time in my 12 years of roleplaying that I've ever played a female character, and I am excited to take on the challenge. So in order to get off to a fast start, I am posting this now. Anyone interested in playing in a thread with Valkyrie? If you have any ideas, I would more than willing to hear them! :D

Sarah's up for anything. As for ideas... Maybe a fire giant is stomping around somewhere, or there's and evil/annoying plot by Loki in the works.

I like the idea of a fire giant, Taar. I don't think I'm quite ready for Loki, yet :P

What is the Fire Giant's motivation? Was he summoned by some evil wizard? Or is he just out for a stroll and happened to step on a tack?

The giant got summoned up by the wizard for some appropriately petty reason and began to rage around as commanded. The wizard himself is wearing Shoulders of Doom covered in Spikes of Villainy for the giant to step on later, allowing the tack scenario as well!

How did the wizard find this ritual of giant summoning? Loki, in the background, nudged things a bit purely for the lulz.

I instantly fell in love with this.

I'll bet this nefarious wizard was upset about his restaurant bill or something. When he found out they were going to force him to wash dishes since he couldn't pay, he summoned a fire giant instead. Sound good?

I'd be up for something, quote, probably with Jack rather than Midnight. As for ideas, well, a Norse-themed heroine's gotta have some issues with SHADOW, right?

They're the Nazi version of Hydra or AIM or Cobra or what have you.

Stabbing? Smashing? Probably something more related to Valkyrie, since she's getting established.

Well, I do have some smashing going on already, as you can see. It may behoove her to spread out a little. (Though smashing would be fun too.)

...electrocuting? (Jack isn't sure where you're going with this 'not smashing' thing.) Looking at her stats, she doesn't have too much else gong on, quote. What did you have in mind?

Well, that's just the point. Maybe we should do a thread to show her that she doesn't have much else to go on. Sort of like a wake up call. "You mean there are ways of solving problems without smashing?"

It's worth noting that, while SHADOW's iconography still intentionally evokes their Nazi roots, they're not really about the ethnic cleansing, just TAKING OVER THE WORLD. Since becoming aware of his own many and varied reincarnations, and his origins as an Egyptian (not that either is public knowledge), Wilhelm Kantor (A.K.A. "OverShadow," although that isn't public knowledge, either) quietly dropped the Nazi ideology and kicked it under the bed. Now, instead of the "master race," he puts himself up on the pedestal.

There are, however, many former Nazis in his employ. And he was personally responsible for the evil magics that bound Thor and another Valkyrie into the service of the Nazis during WWII. So while SHADOW =/= Nazis, there is some overlap, and the organization is certainly tainted with it from the top down.

Also, the rank and file of SHADOW are barely-sentient clones grown in vats en masse, and they've specifically been written that way so that PCs can do pretty much whatever they want to them without looking or feeling like villains. They're Acceptable Targets, so go nuts. :D
