|Gogo's Meteor Hammer|
Last night, our gaming group created characters and started an adventure using the playtest materials for the Fate Accelerated Edition version of Pilgrims of the Flying Temple. It was a fun session, and I am looking forward to the next one. I thought I'd post my character.
No, I didn't play Gogo.
But Meteor Hammers are cool. I decided my monk-in-training needed one. My character's Banner (i.e., Trouble) Aspect was the Devil Buddha Meteor Hammer, an ancient and dangerous heirloom weapon of the Flying Temple. I can smash things with this very destructive weapon, one which requires great skill to use. Untrained or inattentive use of this weapon can cause bone-breaking mishaps. So the first part of my pilgrim name is "Smashing."
Figuring out my Avatar Aspect (which represents how I help other people) was a bit more difficult to puzzle out. With some help from another player, though, I figured it out: Hammer, saw, and nails. I am a carpenter, and I often help the people who reach out to us for assistance by fixing or making things. I build (and repair) bridges both physical and metaphorical using these skills. Thus the second part of my pilgrim name, "Bridge".
He's a burly kid, the biggest in our party. I like the image of him going along with his meteor hammer slung over one shoulder, while on his other side he has a work hammer, saw, and a bag of nails. Hell, he's probably covered in sawdust a lot of the time, with a big blackened thumbnail from his last accident with the work hammer.
