Curious Cuisine (Superhero/Cooking)

Oh, one thing I have been meaning to say since I first played it – I suspect playing the game distracted me so much I forgot to come back here to say it – my character would not only like all the puns, but make some herself too. It’s all in pun, after all, if you like them cookies… :grin:

The puns are where I draw the line

Rather close one on this.

Switchblade
  • Name: Travis Roland
  • Codename: Switchblade
  • Gender: male (cis)
  • Age: 43
  • DoB: January 9
  • Race: Black
  • Hair: Dark brown
  • Eyes: brown/hazel
  • Height: 6’7
  • FaceClaim: Idris Elba/ Terry Crews
  • Costume: A black leather combat suit with steel grey lines on the fingers, a hood and a half-mask. It’s smooth and full of sharp angles at the same time.

Before Nightfall Switchblade was known as one of the most dangerous and vicious villains in all of Cornucopia. A gun (and literally all other kinds of weapons) for hire, he had contacts all throughout CoCi’s underworld.

He’s been responsible for a long list of robberies and kidnappings, and a longer list of property damage. He has, however, rarely killed people (regular or with powers) outside of collateral damage, as he deems that too simple. Truth be told he considers killing out of sheer bloodlust a waste of time.

His speciality are weapons to counter his opponents the best, one of the reasons he has quite a bit of a god-complex.

He’s snarky, grumpy and condescending, and, much to his dismay, an odd kind of caring in his core. As much as he delights seeing others fail, there often comes a point where he gets so frustrated by it that he’ll jump in to set people straight. He hates that fact.

This trait is also the reason why he’s part of the Unmasked Generation, and why he became a coach at the new-founded APORIA. Because he (quote) ‘can’t trust those morons (heroes) with a whole new generation. They got us Odium, can’t have that again’.

His personality has marginally improved (maybe because he is aware the whole city now has his eyes on him), but he still has it in for a couple of people. Powerhouse and Marcus especially.

Ooooh, I love how customisable the bonus chapter is! I haven’t had the time to fully play through the main story (I’ve gotten a few chapters in before my progress ended up deleted :frowning: ) but from what I’ve seen of it it’s also wonderfully customisable. I’m not super interested in superheroes or cooking but I love this game so much because customisable stuff are my favourite part of all these games!

Who wants to see the WiP overview of all NPCs? (beware, spoilers)
I am not procrastinating writing the game by writing its trivia, I swear

Edit: you have to say something, people

i would love to see details of all the NPCs available.

It may give me things to write on once i make a tvtropes page for this game. Because if Guenevere has one, what’s stopping me from making one for this game too? That is…if you’re okay with that.

i’m still devising on how to divide the possible character pages. i might go with folders and then switch to multi-pages when we get more into the game.


EDIT:

Possible Format: @MeltingPenguins, is this ok with you?

Main Story
Parent Protagonist
Child Protagonist
General NPCs
NPCs inclusive to the Parent Plotline
NPCs inclusive to the Child Plotline

I tried to play through the main story and it is wonderful! But there was a weird bug where after a while my saves took me to my stat screen and when I exited it just took me to another part of my stats screen in an endless loop which was frustrating, but I really enjoyed the game so far!

That’s a known bug with dashingdon, unfortunately.

two things can cause it:

  1. you saved on the stats screen
  2. the author uploaded a new version of the scene you’ve been on.

I think the latter is more common, so, my apologies. (it doesn’t always happen though. usually a new scene version will just bring you to the start of the scene. but iirc if page_breaks etc are altered this can happen)
