2 truths 1 lie
« on: April 09, 2018, 05:35:22 AM »
Give us two truths about a character of yours, and one lie. Then guess which one is the lie :)

I'll start with something simple :P but dont be afraid to go crazy

Sarett:
1. She has an older sister called Corinne
2. She took ballet as a child
3. She was born in Harston, Cambridgeshire

I'm going with the older sister as the lie.

Lalina:
1) Lost her entire family in a monster attack
2) Is the fastest flier of her generation
3) Loves the thrill of battle

False :D she didn't do ballet

For you I guess 3 (or at least that's my impression of her so far)

Jascha:
1. He is a good cook
2. Is the only child who has magic
3. Has an older brother who is a fisherman

Jascha being a good cook? Never :P

since @katfireblade hasn't revealed yet which one was the lie, here's my guess: Losing her entire family in a monster attack is the lie.

Drystan:
1. His older brother died in a hunting accident.
2. Is good at sword-fighting.
3. Likes to mingle with his subjects.

@Manu  I'm going to guess #2, he's bad at sword-fighting.

Maro:

1. She can see when people lie, and avoids talking to prevent others from finding out.
2. She doesn't have a family.
3. She wants to be an actress.

Yep, that's right!

Hm, yours is tricky, @Jessitiz... 1 and 3 sort of contradict each other, but could make a cool internal conflict, so I'm guessing that those two are true and 2 is the lie.

Edit: Wait, I have to post a new one...

So here's one none of you know yet:
Alexander:
1. is in love with his collegue
2. travels back in time to save his family
3. works with chimpanzees in his dayjob

Heh. Since @Jessitiz hasn't replied yet, I'mma answer two of these!

Maro:

1. She can see when people lie, and avoids talking to prevent others from finding out.
2. She doesn't have a family.
3. She wants to be an actress.

Jessitz:  I'm guessing 3, mainly because the conflict between one and two will either send her to a psych ward or would otherwise be a serious crux of the book, even if as a subplot.

So here's one none of you know yet:
Alexander:
1. is in love with his collegue
2. travels back in time to save his family
3. works with chimpanzees in his dayjob

I'm guessing 2 is the lie, @Manu. I'm also guessing I'm wrong. :)

Okay, a less well known character it is. :D

Hunter:
1) Was a criminal before becoming a slave
2) Has two children he has forgotten
3) Has his skills requested most often by the local Watch (the police/guards)

It actually was #2! Maro has a family who loves her very much, though they have no idea why she refuses to talk and are concerned. Maro wants to become an actress because while the people on stage are OBVIOUSLY LYING, they're also NOT lying and she really wants to figure out how to do that.
I'm going to guess #2 for yours, because that's too sad.

@katfireblade you forgot to answer your Lalina one :P

For your second one I guess 1 :)

Celeste:
1. Is scared of magic
2. Has a resentment for her mother for disappearing when she was young
3. Is stronger and could win easily in fight with her brother

Oops!

For Lalina, it was #3, she is an artist more than a warrior.
For Hunter, yes, it was #1.

Are you looking over my shoulder? *squints suspiciously*

Also @Jessitiz, you forgot to put up a new challenge. You can do a side character too! :)

Celeste:
1. Is scared of magic
2. Has a resentment for her mother for disappearing when she was young
3. Is stronger and could win easily in fight with her brother

@Sheepy-Pie, I'm guessing #1.

And since almost everyone else on the forum seems to have semi-permanently fucked off...here have another character.  ;D

Kuon:
1) Has draconic powers
2) Grew up revered due to his bloodline
3) Once had his wings shredded by Raphian

Hahaha no :P there was just something about #1 which stood out ever so slightly

And as for Celeste the answer is 3. She is about the same strength as Kali, and if they fought I actually don't know who'd win. It would all depend if Kali used his magic (especially as Celeste doesn't know he's got it).

For Kuon (ohh this one is tough) I choose 2, though I am wary about 1 as it might be a red herring. I don't think Raphian would shred his wings unless it was a last resort or something. I think it's the opposite of 2 and he wasn't revered. (although now I am doubting it :P )

Sarett:
1. Her favourite colour is orange
2. Her favourite alcohol is cider
3. Her favourite dessert is cheesecake

2 is not a lie. Someone else wants to take a guess?

Kuon:
1) Has draconic powers
2) Grew up revered due to his bloodline
3) Once had his wings shredded by Raphian
I'm guessing 3 (I think he doesn't have wings? There was something about him only having lizard features in your last challenge submission).

Sarett:
1. Her favourite colour is orange
2. Her favourite alcohol is cider
3. Her favourite dessert is cheesecake
No idea, I'm guessing the cheesecake one is wrong.

Icchu:
1. has a little sister who can do magic
2. has always dreamed about leaving the island he was born on
3. is good at fishing

It's 1. Shoulda gone with my first impulse.

Kuon:
1) Has draconic powers
2) Grew up revered due to his bloodline
3) Once had his wings shredded by Raphian
I'm guessing 3 (I think he doesn't have wings? There was something about him only having lizard features in your last challenge submission).

2 is the lie. Oh yes, he does have wings, sometimes, and Raphian grounded his ass after a particularly foolish stunt. But dragons also have a high healing factor--they can essentially grow body parts back given long enough. So the damage wasn't permanent.

Sarett:
1. Her favourite colour is orange
2. Her favourite alcohol is cider
3. Her favourite dessert is cheesecake

I'm going with 2.

Icchu:
1. has a little sister who can do magic
2. has always dreamed about leaving the island he was born on
3. is good at fishing

I'm picking 3, though it's really a toss up for me between 2 and 3.

Keeping the game rolling....

Nikolan:
1) Became a slave deliberately to spite his father
2) Is a nobleman
3) Is a terrible swordsman

Mine was 3, Sarett's fav dessert isn't cheesecake, it's tiramisu :)

@Manu for yours I pick 1

@katfireblade for yours I pick 3 :)

Jascha:
1. Is a mummy's boy
2. Uses his air magic to "accidentally" blow up women's skirts
3. Had a rivalry when training his magic with a Japanese guy called Satoya
