It’s time for some old-fashioned nerdy fun: Statting up your favorite TV and movie characters. First off, here is how you make a character in Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple.
Creating a Pilgrim
Step 1: Choose your pilgrim’s Avatar.
Pick an object or thing. For example, “tree,” “cat,” or “window.”
Step 2: Choose your pilgrim’s Banner.
Describe that thing in one word. For example, “green,” “sleeping,” or “cloudy.”
Step 3: Fill in the Blanks.
Your pilgrim’s name is “Pilgrim (Banner) (Avatar).” For example, “Pilgrim Green Tree,” “Pilgrim Sleeping Cat,” or “Pilgrim Cloudy Window.”
In play, your pilgrim’s Banner describes how she gets into trouble. Her Avatar describes how she solves problems. So, by way of example, here’s the cast of Avatar: the Last Airbender.
Pilgrim Silly Squirrel gets in trouble by being irreverent and helps people by winding his opponents.
Pilgrim Right Bandage gets in trouble by believing she’s doing the right thing and helps people by healing their wounds.
Pilgrim Sharp Stick gets in trouble because of his quick wit and helps people by improvising new inventions as needed.
See how that works? Give it a shot yourself. What would you name the cast of Firefly? How about Buffy or Futurama?
