Xenosophy

Post by Treymiar » Tue Aug 11, 2015 5:27 pm

Dudes,

I had an idea which I think could improve our character profiles.
How does your character feel about other species?
Quick one liners are best.

Here is an example of my new character's attitudes.
(No need to gasp. He's merc, not Fleet.)
Personality & Traits - General Overview

Personal Xenosophy:
- Obtuseness is the Vulcan's downfall.
- Cultural warriorism is the Klingon's downfall.
- Green Orion Slave Girls are real honeys, but only if they're good at patching up wounds and keeping watch.
- Ferengi. "If I like your proposal, we have a deal. If not, I shoot you."
When writing joint posts, I think it would help each writer to know how the others are predisposed emotionally toward each other's species. And don't give me the TNG homogenized 'we all think alike' tripe. We don't and we won't. Vulcans will always be frustrated by irrationals. Klingons will always despise cowardly Ferengi.

Just an idea.

I have ulterior motives behind this, now that I run my first Counselor.

It would help me to know if Bajorans harbor deeply ingrained hatred of Cardassians... or perhaps colonials who lost many to the Borg. Am not looking for drama, rather realistic emotional dynamics found in a xeno crew.
