Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.
Lieutenant Nishikado Tomohiro is a laser tank commander in the Earth Defense Force’s 2nd Armored Division, tasked with protecting the planet from the waves of alien invaders that plague life in the 22nd Century.
Nishi, as his friends and crew-mates call him, is a true soldier who takes his role as a defender of humanity very seriously. He is constantly thinking about how best to approach the challenges of fending off the threat of attack from space. He is also mildly obsessed with the mystery of the strange spacecraft that occasionally pass by to observe the status of the invasion. Nishi is certain that the unknown beings in these ships hold the key to vitory in this endless war. Lt. Tomohiro spends the precious few moments of downtime engaged in a recurring poker game with the men of his platoon.

Why do I keep hearing repetitive sound effects when I read this one? Like columns of aliens marching closer and closer . . .
Those saucers buzzing overhead might not hold the key to victory, but they are worth beaucoup points!
Keep ’em coming with these retro vid stats. I’m still pining for a “fantasy adventure where you become a valiant knight.”
“The sound! The sound! It drives itself into my brain, speaking of our eventual and ultimate doom. Why do we even fight them? They’re unstoppable!”
“Pull yourself together, Private Atari! We fight because we must! Now get back to that gun before the next wave begins!”
“Yes sir, Lt. Tomohiro. I… I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me.”
“No need to apologize, Private. It has happened to all of us at one point.”
That knight is on the menu, but the chef hasn’t had the time to prep him just yet, amigo. Don’t worry. It’ll happen sooner or later.
So retro it… Hurts
Retro doesn’t hurt, Gobbo. It tickles 🙂
