This weekend, I pretty much played CoV. Mostly Kethos (Dark Melee/Fire Brute), the head of Devil’s Night, a bunch of criminal anarchists.
Devils Night was formed to emulate a theme of anarchy for the sake of personal freedom, chaos for the sake of breaking down order, and a disregard for societal norms that often bleeds into the psychopathic.
Social Darwinism meets Anarchism.
Break down order. Destroy something pretty. You probably wouldn’t put it in those terms, but that is the drive that lies underneath.
“He was inclined to anarchism; he hated system and organization and uniformity”
— Bertrand Russell
“Greed is for amateurs. Disorder. Chaos. Anarchy. Now that’s fun.”
He’s on Virtue, and the SG has a non-aggression pack with The Elitists and the Order of the Bloody Rose. About two missions from level 14 and a travel power. Should have that taken care of tonight.
Tremendous backstory and just plain old story with this guy so far — very cool stuff. The smooth disdain of Top Dollar meets violence of The Narrator and the lewd humor of Jayne.
* Markov Chain (Energy/Energy Stalker) on Champion — Martin from Grosse Pointe Blank meets the tragedy of the Hollows. A markov chain posits that you cannot predict the future from past events — “Mark” gave himself the name after his family and friends were killed in the Hollowing to
convince remind himself that the past is pointless. He’s a bit neurotic. His therapist is very nervous.
* Barret (Dark/Dark brute) on Champion — very large. Very, very quiet. I decided to go with Dark armor on this one after talking over all the Brute sets with Jackie and realizing that Dark has all the things I like about Fire, but WITH psi resistance. I kept dark melee cuz it’s fun on Kethos and I like the punch-noises. Sounds violent.
Both are those are level 2 because… Keth is level 13. Duh. Should be more like 15 or something, but Sunday sucked ass on many fronts, and on Saturday I spent considerable time screwing around on the SG base. Don’t have other character plans at this time, though I might have one more guy in Virtue. Wanna hear about everyone new folks.
I also have to give a shout out to Jackie’s extremely refined Hedera (Plant/Ice Dominator), one of the heads of the Elitists on Virtue, Unhinged, her hilarious Ninja-arrows Mastermind (with ninjas named Flash Gordon and Buck Rodgers), and Merry Mayhem, her evil-ditz Stone/Dark Brute, also on Champion, and also in the Consortium of Injustice.
