I absolutely adore attaching a quote or quotes to my character sheets. I feel that it can tell you a lot about their personality and attitude. Even if they're just ripped off from other works.

Can we come up with any great ones for any sort of character idea or class? I still have a large amount of crew who need their own phrase.

Pic related, my current character, pretty much a less sex oriented Zapp Brannigan.

"If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate."

"In the game of Chess, you must never let your opponent see your pieces."

In case anyone was wondering, the game is a homebrew my friends and I made, basically a mix of 40k, Space Station 13, Red November (board game), and the Soviet Union.

I've written a bunch of fluff for it, all pretty light hearted, which is how my players like it and it makes it more fun to think up in my opinion. Will post some of the full crew bios including quotes if anyone's interested

Is the robotic the left one or the right one? Because it could be both ways and that would be very different characters.

Soldier Background and Bio

Quote: "If God had wanted you to live, he would not have created me!"

Big, mean and scary, this is my self-insert character in the game.

Less trigger happy than the Gunner, but far more deadly, the Soldier is a violent, angry, veteran of dozens of battles across the universe. His job on the ship is to defend against hostile boarding parties and assisting with security.

When not on duty, he can generally be found in the bar, attempting to out drink the Engineer. He has strong contempt for the Captain, whom he considers to be too young and inexperienced to deserve his respect.

The Soldier, like the Gunner, begins the game with a rifle, a non consumable weapon granting a +2 to combat rolls. He also has a grenade, which can be tossed for 2 AP to instantly deal 2 hit points of damage to everyone in an adjacent tile, once per game.

>> No.31259612

There's one quote that my Rogue Trader is renowned for across the sector.
It's the most powerful weapon at his disposal.
It has become almost like a running joke amongst everyone playing.
They are the magic words with which he wins everything.

"How would you like to join my crew?"

With it, he has converted people sent to kill him into loyal crewmen.
He's enlisted the captains of vessels that could not prevail where his ship thrived.
He has recruited a squad of Space Marine scouts, even after the arch-militant killed one of them during the conversation.
He's exploited bureaucratic loopholes to gain the services of a Space Marine Veteran Sergeant for a decade.
He's become the leader of a considerable force of Orks.
Even the former Inquisitor whom he used to serve under as part of an acolyte cell has become one of his officers.

I had one line come out of a game just recently. A bit of context:

We MIGHT have had reason to believe an old soldier-turned-farmer had information regarding a cult of necromancers. Or ghosts. Or something. It wasn't clear. Each player in turn, most of whom were really new to TRPG type stuff, took turns trying to muscle a word out of him. It wasn't working. I just had my Alchemist stoking the fire in the corner of his cabin.
"Alright. That's enough. This is going nowhere. Everyone out."
Everyone leaves the cabin but the old soldier, tied to the ground. I pull a burning log from the fire. Undeterred, he says:
"I been tortured before. By better men than you."
"Oh, I doubt that." I say walking up and crouching down right next to him.
"There are no men better than me."
I tossed then log into the corner of the room and just walked out. He broke a few minutes before his house did.

Cheesy as hell. But what fun.

Captain Background and Bio

Quote: "In the game of Chess, you can never let your adversary see your pieces."

He may well be called Captain, but the title brings with it all the prestige and responsibility of some kind of fucking man child kindergarten teacher. Having spent his entire life training for this, his first command, the Captain tries to be inspiring and motivational to his crew.

Unfortunately, most of this just serves to make him a figure of ridicule for his crew. The Captain faces disrespect and insubordination on a daily basis and is pretty lenient with dealing with it, it's not like they're running a warship or anything.

The Captain always goes first, and can place moral authority on the other crew to follow his orders. Yeah, right.

Biologist Background and Bio

Quote: "See that cute little thing? It'll eat your face!"

OK this character art is so god damned kawaii.

The Biologist may look cute, but don't let your guard down! Her sweet smile hides a mischievous and dangerously curious nature. Often found roaming the ship when she's meant to be on duty, or exploring the vents with her friend, the Navigator.

Her job is to cultivate exotic alien plants and small animals in the Bio-Dome, as well as working as an assistant to the Doctor. Her knowledge of bizarre herbs and enthusiasm for causing trouble have made her into a master prankster.

The array of herbal recipes and drugs she carries give the Biologist an extra action point per turn. She can also choose to give an extra action point to anyone who starts their turn in a room with her.

Pilot Background and Bio

Quote: "Gotta go fast!"

Barely alive unless she's at the cockpit of a shuttle, the Pilot is a daredevil first, and functioning, useful member of the crew second. She believes that if you have to go anywhere, you may as well do it fast enough to break multiple traffic laws.

Her fiery need for speed is shared by the Gunner, and they occasionally go for joyrides on the stations lifeboat craft. She hates the Officer for being such a killjoy, and the Captain for being too cowardly to ride with her.

The Pilot can commandeer a small pod to move from any of the lifeboats into the hangar bay. This move costs 2 action points.
