So, I started this week having no idea what I wanted to write about on Blogsday, so I outsourced today’s topic to the first backer to get back to me. Courtesy of Omnibomb, I give you today a preview of the characters I’m considering for future games.
Let’s see… where are we at? Sixteen girls with Female!Gargan? Eighteen after you count Diadira and [Elf Ranger Girl]. That leaves another twleve girls, minimum. Well, I really don’t want to go into it here, because at this point it might be a bit spoilery. Here’s what I can tell you:
The Bankrupt Noble Heiress
When you do receive your player housing in Westcastle, the Hero will find the house overseen by a particularly haughty and proud maid. Turns out, the “maid” is nothing of the sort, but the daughter of the now-bankrupt noble family that once owned the home. She was essentially squatting, but dressed up as a maid in order to not be arrested. But the Hero doesn’t care, of course, and slaps a collar on her regardless.
Slime Girl Familiar
Similarly, when the player acquires the housing in Southport, they discover the sanctum of a (now dead) wizard. However, the building is far from empty, and the wizard’s old familiar- a slime girl created through arcane experimentation. Sheltered and innocent.
While there will be about 6-8 characters you can have sex with, the main heroine duties are spread out between four different girls. The first two girls you meet on the other side of the well are Athena and Skuld. Athena appears as a lady of the war and the party’s main fighter, and is very intelligent and known for fighting smart. Skuld appears as the party’s resident black magician girl, mysterious and cruel.
As for other characters, a rule 63’d version of Houyi will appear as the party archer, though I have fewer specifics on her character she will probably be an energetic genki girl type. Kikuri-hime will appear as the party’s main healer. And even though they are dudes, Hades will appear as the accessory shop owner, Ptah as weapon crafting guy, and Gabriel as the party’s mage-knight.
Harem Collector II
Even though it’s at least a year or more away, I have given some thought to who is going to appear in the next Harem Collector game.
The Time Traveler’s Granddaughter
Since the Amazing Old Man ended up being unexpectedly popular, I thought it would awesome to incorporate him in the ongoing Harem Collector story. So, in the second game, you’ll run into his granddaughter, having taken up the family business of time adventuring. She’ll totally be rocking the pulp sci-fi look- free-floating rings and tinfoil skirt, etc. She’ll help out in battle by fighting with a raygun and calling down orbital strikes and such. Oh, and if you’re curious about how she’s going to look, she’s going to appear as an Ultra-Rare unlockable character in Dunegon Assault: No Mercy.
The Five Generals of Kellos
All of the five generals of Kellos will be recruit-able (capture-able?) characters in HC2, and they’re all sexy ladies to boot. Some of the generals are:
Fiona the Grave-Digger
Commander of the Second Legion, Fiona has mastered the art of fighting with a shovel, thus earning her nickname. She is also known as a great strategist, even among the ranks of the Five Generals. Confident and sassy, she likes to taunt her opponents before each battle in order to goad them into making mistakes.
Wolf the Sniper
A supernaturally skilled marksman, Wolf has revolutionized the use of black powder weapons in battle, and her Third Legion is renowned for the speed and accuracy of it’s rifle lines. I haven’t written much of her character into stone, yet, but that’s because I haven’t played any of the Metal Gear games and I will have to pick them up in order to get the parody right.
Red the Scout
The newest of the Five Generals commands the Fifth Legion. Although she lacks the experience of the other generals, she makes up for it with innovative tactics and a reckless disregard for the odds. She’s trained her legion to focus on maneuverability and travel speed, and makes use of more cavalry and mounted infantry than the other Legions. She uses a baseball bat in combat, of course, and like Wolf is a pretty blatant parody.
Anyway, that’s it for now. I have other plans, but they’re staying secret for now.
