Temple character suggestions

Just thought I'd throw some ideas out there (of course not kowing what GCT have in store for us in the future) but how about some of these as ideas for the Temple?

Major Kami of Fire/Water/Earth/Air

Elephant

Bear

Wolf

Panther/Tiger/Lion

Ram

Bird of Prey

Rhino

I do think the Temple would benefit from something/someone that gave them a ranged attack - like a simple archer?

Bushido its not about Killing, its about Tactic.

Really nice suggestions!

Would love to have monk riding a Tiger into battle! That would look awesome.

Would it be too bad to also suggest a Panda - doesn't have to be like film character!

i like Atrus's idea of the monkey king but not for the temple, maybe as an independent character, he is too mischevious for the temple properly, unless he comes with his handler (tripitaka)

How this takes me back ....

I agree ... but mischevious or not he HAS to be for the Temple ... he's escorting a Bhuddist priest! cheeky

We kind of already have farmer and monk type/looking characters (although these characters are a "bit" different!) but Monkey who can "ride on clouds, change shape, multiply himself ..." would be excellent!

I think I see three Yokai there!

 

Shape shift monkey, shape shift pig and shape shift...... fish? maybe something amphibious like a crocodile.

Thoughts on possible special traits. May need a new trait for the pig.

'Delicious'

If a model is in LoS with this model and not btb with another model it must declare a charge against this model.

Now there's a great thought/trait "nackers" - 'Delicious' .... think it should be combined with Impetuous.

lol thats an awesome idea for pigsy, but remember "monkey" was the monkey king for a long time before tripitaka trapped him. he doesn't have to be with the monk. check out forbidden kingdom the film the monkey king is awesome. also the new cult lady Harionago is in it.

Monkey would definitely be kami not yokai, he tricked his way into being a God after all!

But not a Kami in game turns, I think, Greeny. That'd be weird.

I follow the rules of bushido. I am a bushi.

Swedish players, rally to Hokuō Bushido!

How about a tattooed man?

His card could have a list of tattoos that each grant a specific power. A couple of ways to work it could be that you choose a couple of tattoos from the list or alternatively he would have a basic rice cost and you pay additional rice depending which tattoos you want...

Dice cups are the new O.P.

Two coins, one brief and discreet look...

I like this idea, reminds me of the tattoo'd monks from Legend of the Five Rings - http://l5r.wikia.com/wiki/Tattoo

However, this could verge on the elemental 'kiho' that Temple already has, but as a rules aesthetic I like it. Would produce some nice freehand ideas!

omg l5r is my most favorite rpg evry lol (sorry for sounding like a 14 year old girl)

have played it since 2nd edition and that why i first got into bushido was looking for some figures to represent the characters lol

i think the unicorn clan could look awesome aswell (mongol type horse riders but in samurai armour)

as for the freehand ideas thats way out of my league lol i will leave that to the professionals

I think these could be covered by the Horse Clan Lords of Ataka...

I think tattoos would suit another faction better (perhaps a certain organsised-crime-themed faction), mainly because of the taboo associated with them in the far eastern nations (due to their association with certain real organised-crime factions (seriously, there are many places in Japan (not sure about china/etc) that won't let allow you to enter if you're inked).  Fluff-wise the person could have 'living' tattoos, that move around his/her body etc and grant him special powers (Does anyone here ever read SCP Wiki?, got the general idea from there).
 
 
As for temple, what about a character based on Momotaro (Peach Boy)?  
Imagine koji & the monkeys, but with a dog, a monkey/pig/crab(varies between tellings) and a pheasant.  Model wise it's a chubby kid with some animals, rules wise perhaps in the start phase you pick an animal, and get to use ki feats associated with that animal.  Also, in keepeing with the original story, he gets rules that make him better against Oni (In the story, he & the animals go and kick the asses of some Oni)

Leigen_Zero - Momotaro is an excellent idea. Just read that story about him. The statue in that thread looks great. Get GCT to model that!! To give the Temple a character, animal themed that has some history of defeating the Oni ... awesome!
