    Default Video Game characters as D&D Characters v2.0

    Well, I did say that I was gonna revive this thread. So here it is! I'll add this and the other v2.0 thread to my signature when I remember how the hell to do it.

    If anybody would like to contribute characters, I'll add it to the list in case somebody is capable of doing so.

    If there's a recurring character in a game series (i.e. Bowser), please specify which game in the series.

    If you are going to list more than one character, please list the characters in the format:
    • [Character name] ([Game])

    Taking a new line for each character.

    If you complete a character, please post its full character sheet in Iron Chef format. Assume you have exactly as much money as you need for the purpose of acquiring the items.

    Red = Complete and can find the post by clicking the listed user's name.
    Gold = In progress.
    Blue = I haven't started it.
    Purple = In progress, but by somebody else. Username will be provided.

    Never heard of 'em. You're welcome to post the format for how to submit characters for the list though, like it says nearer the top of the post.

    I didn't even notice that you'd started this thread back up again.

    I'll check my files for old builds for this thread and see if there's anything I can patch up and submit. Or maybe I'll update Jensen and Raiden, since I don't like 'em that much.

    Eh, that's a good idea. When I have time (which is not right now), I'll probably try my hand at building the PCs from Chrono Trigger (the hard part being that half of them - Crono, Frog, and Robo, and Magus if you count him- are gishes... I'll probably start with Ayla.)

    No? I thought you did a pretty great job with both of them, what would you change?

    Also, anyone got any ideas for Jackie Estacado? He'd be someone that gains power in darkness for starters, he's a possessed human with his own control, uh...yeah, no idea how to begin tackling this guy.

    Adam Jensen is literally just a Nimblewright with some ToB classes stapled on. Even if it is pretty thematically and mechanically appropriate, I feel like maybe he'd work better and be more interesting as a Construct or Living Construct with levels in Soulknife. As for Raiden, I just feel generically unsatisfied.

    Anyhow, I have a shortlist for characters to build.
    • Garret (Thief). A roguish sort with a preference for stealing over sneak attacks. High nonlethal damage, and must be capable of using bows. Can hide in shadows as if he were literally invisible. These all seem possible within the DnD ruleset.
    • Alex Mercer (Prototype). Warshaper, natch, although maybe there's a better way to brew up his menagerie of forms and tools. Probably needs to be able to sunder decently and ignore DR, too. Regeneration is a must.
    • Corvo (Dishonored). Shadow pounce, maybe? I'm thinking Ardent with some custom mantles while we're at it. There's not much better way to stop time than to use a spellcaster (or in this case, a manifester).
    • War (Darksiders). He's big, he's burly, and he has a bit of an armory on his back - but despite being of mild intelligence, he's not really all that interesting.

    What class do you think War would be? I'll mark you as in progress for all four, if you'd like.

    I actually got bored one day and made the Final Fantasy IX characters as D&D characters. I'll post Zidane when I get a moment.

    He's probably as close to a fighter as it gets. No encounter-based buffs, no rage, nothing; he seems to just be consistently, devastatingly powerful.

    And don't. If I make it, or start putting serious work into one of them, I'll say. Otherwise, don't wait up. Maybe someone will look at the shortlist, go "I know exactly what to do!" and just make it, y'know?

    Sounds pretty accurate to him. Quick Draw to get quick access to the arsenal of weapons he has, high strength, probably half-giant for Powerful Build to wield a Large Greatsword? I'm not sure how to tackle the super high damage he'd probably output though.

    And that's fair, yeah.

    I've always thought recreating Daud would be interesting, I'd probably build his as some sort of Swordsage or Arcane Trickster.

    Ooh this thread is back.

    The Aigis entry reminded me of a character a player of mine made a bit back. Tome of Radiance has found it's way into the things allowed at the table and someone decided to make an Empath. That was some sort of Android/Warfodged. With a Gun (Well Bolt device, but it took the shape of an arm cannon). So Aigis, but at the same time totally not her.

    The only other thing I can think of that might work would be a Synthesist Summoner, but that seems too magic heavy to really work. If (really well done) homebrew is on the table I could write up a half decent stub of Aigis as a re-fluffed Warfordged Empath. Though it would probably be more of how she was in The Answer, but it would be a decent approximation in both fluff and crunch.

    I'm gonna hopefully do a little crowdsourcing for a potential Sonic the Hedgehog build, because 1. I can't find the official stats for Hedgehogs aside from a familiar, and 2. I have no idea how to make Sonic as a super-speed charger who can rip through constructs.

    Super-speed is easily achieved with some land speed boosts or in some cases, Turning Attempt burning, but the hard part for me is the actual race and possible martial abilities.

    That could be interesting. I feel like sundering might come into play with it but I have no idea how you could turn Sonic's entire body into a slashing weapon.

    Anybody got any ideas about Sephiroth? So far I'm playing about with the idea of a half-giant wielding a Large Katana, or maybe some other method to wield a huge Katana. As for his magic, that's gonna be something else entirely, not sure what though.

    The main things for Sonic are speed and that spin dash attack thing he does. For speed, look at the Chuck E. Cheese build elsewhere on the forum; he moves at 3.5x the speed of light, but you only have to go the speed of sound (it's Sonic, after all). As for the spin dash attack (for robbits and similar), maybe look at Chuck's use of the Whirlwind Throw maneuver (though that's not especially accurate) or just build some kind of DR-ignoring, Hardness-smashing superhog.

    As for his stats, you'd be best off either using an equivalent anthropomorphic animal or using the hedgehog from the DMG (page 203) and applying Savage Species' anthropomorphic animal template to it. He's definitely small-size.

    So I am going to actually request something here:

    Ana Amari (Overwatch).

    I'm curious what can be done in 3.5, lacking the PF Alchemist option.

    Most of the characters of Overwach are going to be hard to do, what with their common reliance on guns and whatnot. That being said, if one replaces Ana's sniper rifle with a longbow, maybe she could do things. Arcane Archer springs to mind as a possibility, or otherwise some way to imbue shots with cure/inflict wounds.

    I don't see why guns would be difficult to do in D&D; the 3.5 DMG has firearm rules, and Pathfinder has good firearm rules, so between the two systems there's gotta be a way to do it.

    Added to the list.

    I'm also gonna throw Reinhardt, Genji, and Hanzo up there. I feel like they might be much easier to tackle than any of the other gun-toting characters.

    Anyone got any ideas for Artorias the Abysswalker?

    Pathfinder adaptations? Sure. But the game isn't balanced around gun-toting characters like those found in Overwatch, and that's especially apparent in 3.5e (although true in both). The main point I was trying to make was that such builds would require some dedication, and that I don't know how likely someone is to take that dive given that we have so many easier characters still left unbuilt.

    Pathfinder's definitely balanced around the possibility of firearms, given they have a base class dedicated to wielding them. Similarly, the 3.5 firearm rules (basically just additional weapons that are potentially available) are presented in the DMG; I've yet to see it in the SRD, but it's still Core material. Regardless of how obscure you consider them to be, though, but the phrase "the game isn't balanced around [them]" implies that including them would be unbalanced, when that's not really true in either system. In Pathfinder, the gun rules are more complicated to make them more interesting, but in 3.5 the difference between a volley-archer Fighter and a rifleman archer is literally just weapon choice, so I don't see how building somebody to use guns instead of bows requires more dedication. Finally, people are gonna build whichever characters they're personally interested in building, they're not going down the list to see which concepts are the easiest to build so they can get this off their to-do list, so I'm not sure why the number of unbuilt characters is relevant either.
