Okay, /tg/, for a modern campaign I've decided to play the most hilariously hipster-emo-etc parody possible. The DM's green-lighted the idea (as its a lighthearted, quick campaign), I just need to brainstorm some good character traits. So, /tg/, start let's discuss some good talking points about this character's beliefs and views.

Go to /mu/, /fa/, and /lit/. Ask them all for what you should be listening to, wearing ,and reading. There you go, the perfect hipster.

-apple ipod in your inventory
-hatred of 'posers', a loosely defined group of -people consisting of 'anyone who disagrees with you'
-full of yourself, but insist that you loathe yourself
-no combat skills, but pick a weapon and insist that it is the greatest of all time, and use it as ineffectively as possible

There aren't really any emos on this website anyway. Plenty of hipsters, though.

I'm not really going for accuracy here. Although, if you'd prefer, replace all mentions of "Emo" with "Scene".

Happy?

Stereotyping is fun!

Well.. okay sometimes it is, as long as you admit it's what you're doing.

The stereotypical hipster is pretentious, arrogant, vain, smug, attractive and a fashion victim.

The stereotypical emo is geeky, insecure, reclusive, witty, emotional (duh) and not athletic at all.

It is fun! ...And I didn't mean to imply this wasn't going to a blatant stereotype. As a few people above have pointed out, I suppose I'm looking for hipster/scene then emo.

not half as witty as they think they are

>>11068133 Although, if you'd prefer, replace all mentions of "Emo" with "Scene".

You don't have to, there is probably overlap and some cause for a venn diagram...but it would be too complicated.

Safe to say I find the really annoying types to be Scene Kids, but in that way I'm being bigotted.

My /adv/ is just steal from a movie. Good emo characters can be found in say, Ghost World or American Beauty. I'm not sure where to find hipster characters, but probably a teen drama like Beverly Hills or something.

Your character, pick one.

Oh and also, if this is alternative future/history modern - you'd want your hipster to wear a mish massh of retro clothing from YOUR campaign's past.

So replace silly glasses with silly winged helm, afgan throw with tribal wooden dong cup - etc.

The witty thing?

Nah I disagree, it's definitely in the stereotype presented in films.

Yes, the witty thing. Hollywood gives most character's witty personalities when they can't think of anything else to stick them with. Zoey Deschanel is a good example in that she plays in a ton of romantic comedies and the like every time playing a witty frees spirit. It's pretty much their default personality for anyone under thirty.
