By the age of 23, Alexander had become king, pacified the Balkans, invaded Asia Minor, and won the first of his 3 great battles vs. the Persian Empire. Not that you want Alexander the Great to be the model for all your PCs, but the point is that folks got a lot done when they were relatively young. Writing off PCs younger than 25 is kind of like writing off sports stars younger than 25.

Im a noob GM who started running a game for his friends out of necessity. They are all new to the game except for this one older dude who has played for several years.

the veteran player has the most cliché character, a half elf rogue who unbeknowst to him, is the bastard son of some noble.

Now the noobs characters blew me away.
A dwarf named "Big Dick" wielding two war hammers who he refers to as "his balls".
A high elven wizard who runs a brothel and uses illusions to make his whores look more atractive.
And middle eastern inspired cleric who sells exotic carpets.

Sometimes I love my friends.

This is wrong.

Characters that are weaboo fetishit magical realm tend to be overrepresented because of the frequent bitching threads/that guy threads, and people that are after the special snowflake experience tend to choose exotic races or classes in order to be "unique".

This does not make every single non white human male in the 25-35 year age range character all of those things you listed by default.

It's the same reason that when you see negative product reviews, they're overwhelmingly negative. If you have a bad time you're more likely to bitch about it, but if it does what you want it to you'll use it and forget/not intend to submit a review.

Tome of Battle is way too anime because it allows martials to throw fireballs, walk on air and attack 9 times in 6 minutes without using "magic". Wizards use magic, fighters fight.

See thing is, I'm a huge history buff. So when we're playing something based in the real world like WoD or Shadowrun, I can't resist playing/making NPCs from nonwhite countries for the history of it.

I wanna play an Assamite who still hates the French for what they did during the Algerian War of Independence., for example.

>> No.38641049

>There is a difference between inheriting a birthright that did 75% of the work for him and accomplishing a lot from scratch.
25% of what Alexander accomplished before age 25 is still really impressive. And even if the inheritance of the revolutionary fighting force his father built played a pivotal role in his conquests (which it certainly did), Alexander still proved himself an able military commander by age 16, and a gigantic fucking badass well before he had lived a quarter century.

>> No.38641235

>You're right, I want Genghis Khan to be the model for my PCs.
Temujin hadn't done anything of real importance before the age of 25, and if he had died at the age of 32, like Alexander, nobody would ever have heard of him, outside of historians studying the specific period. So honestly, the 25-35 age range probably works less well for him than Alexander, but because it's too low, not too high.

(Also fuck that, he should be named "El tiburón", because what is correlation between articles and substantives in Spanish, but that's beside the point since the character was obviously made by a non Spanish speaker, and NGAF.)

Also even if chocolate elf is MADE for fetish weeabo magical realm nobody here calls you on it.
I rarely call tumblr, if ever; but please leave your tumblr SJW at the door. It's not needed and we love you anyway.
To be fair there are people that get splerg'd all over the ceiling if you even dare to suggest wizards doing anything better than stage magic, IMO both groups should die, the point of roleplaying is enacting your own myths and having a fuckload of fun.

Non white, not giving a fuck about races, played 2 albinos, 2 crackers, 1 arab, 1 nigger, 3 brown indeterminates, and 1 greenskin. Nobody was human BTW.
