Was this rolled?

I just rolled for the Ardent. I actually started to draw this on iScribble last night, decided I wanted to do it, and then went to roll for humors until I was like... "Duh. Shine and Vision are pretty much essential, but what else?". So, I rolled and got Ardent, which made perfect sense in hindsight.

I feel like I've seen a lot of Ardent/Shine/Vision recipes. Especially for artists and singers. Although, to make those characters, I guess those are pretty necessary humors.

If you think you can do something original with it (maybe use some traits of the humors that haven't been explored in other characters), then by all means go full hog. But if you want to try something a little different, maybe exchange Shine with Sublime, Blithe, or Sanguine. Those are all Shine mixes (i think) with slightly different effects.

I feel like he could maybe use a bit of Sublime, but that's just me. I think you should give him at least a liiiittle more Shine, though, too.

Interesting. I'm looking forward to the writeup to see how they all fit in.

Interesting character. Music of some sort seems to be a popular quirk.

That recipe is not official. When I posted that picture, I was explaining what my best guesses were for Bowser's recipe and why, so no, Bowser's recipe is still uncertain.

- Obsession (sort of)

??% ? Grade Relief (Split-Mix: Flow Flow Humor + Mend Mend Humor )

+ Diligence
- Tactlessness

??% ? Grade Valor (Split-Mix: Flow Humor + Aegis Humor ) Deluxe Capsule: Keyhole
+ Independence
- Reticence
LOCKED: + Courage, + Composure


So! No more Shine whatsoever, replaced with Insight, and a Keyhole Capsule of Valor so that this poor kid can perhaps some day no longer be afraid to wear his own face. Very Happy How does this look...?

Also, I had more ideas for Dupli-Puni, and have suddenly come up with the tentative name Pudini (pun of Houdini) for him. So...

Name: Pudini (tentative)
Gender: Male
Species: Dupli-Puni (Puni)
Mod(s): Dupli- and/or Invisibility (limited) <= meaning he can become invisible for limited periods of time

Personality Synopsis/Quote and a bit of Backstory: "Hehehehe~... What do I like to doooo~? I like to watch scary people~. AND THEN I LIKE TO BECOME SCARY PEOPLE~. It's so much fuuun~. Hehehehe~! Oh, and I like to smile, too~. Smile, and poof, and WATCH. YOU. SCREAM~. Heheheheeheeheeeee~! Ohhhh, the look on your face~... Wonderful, so wonderful~! This is so much fun~!"
TL;DR: He scaaaaares meeeeeeeeeeeeee. TT^TT He's also a bit nicer than he sounds/acts, as he actually learned his duplication skills (as in, he can identity-thief like, well, his teacher, rather than just imitate) from the master not-Mario of Flurrie's famous Paper Mario act, Doopliss, so that he could offer to take Puuntail's identity so he 'wouldn't have to hide anymore'. Puuntail, being Puuntail, refused, saying that 'he wouldn't wish the misfortune of being him on anyone'. Speaking of Puuntail, Pudini might actually be his brother, or at least his cousin. Like Puuntail, Pudini was rejected by his parents for his unsettlingly spectral appearance (btw he was given his hat by Doopliss and the stars actually fade in on his skin as he ages, so said appearance =ed ghostly white skin, demonic eyes, and demonic mouth at the time) and odd powers (at first he could only mimic people's faces, incidentally), though, unlike Puuntail, he wasn't quite so scarred by it, instead finding solace with the rest of the weird-as-heck Punies of his generation and honestly not giving a dang about what his birth-parents thought of him. He did go scare the living daylights out of several Puni couples soon after returning from his training with Doopliss though (by turning into a Pider and chasing them all over the Great Tree like no Pider should be able to), so he likely got revenge on his parents, Puuntail's parents, and any other parents who were cruel to him or his "freak family", regardless of whether his parents and Puuntail's parents are the same people or not.

Occupation(s): Owner of the Mushroom World's/Kingdom's most successful Haunted House, Traveller (watches over Puuntail in secret), Monster Spotter (he loves to go observe the strongest, scariest beings he can find so that he can imitate them. Not the safest hobby, but hey, it definitely turns out some impressive results! Would YOU want to mess with someone who could turn into, say, Hooktail, ON A WHIM?)

Humors:

Here's where I need some help.

He definitely has Turnabout Humor, and NOT in a capsule for once, because I want the not-harmless creepy it can bestow when not isolated. Also Shine Humor for cheeriness and INSANITY, hehehe~.

Buuut I'm not sure whether I should use either Ardent Humor or Sublime, because A, I'm not even all that sure he even needs a nasty temper, but B, adding Sublime might be overdoing it on the Shine a bit...

Also not sure whether I should do either Relief or Mend (just a bit, regardless of which!) because I do want him to be caring deep down. He's very protective of his little 'freaky family'.

Relief is more for a generous character, while Mend is more for understanding. A small dose of Mend would likely be better in my opinion.

Sublime isn't exactly Shine, but more of a character who can overreact to things, find uniqueness in themselves, etc. This is good for actors (Like in it's description)

I personally feel like Ardent wouldn't fit. :'/

Quoted re-post in the spoiler above... Wanted to make sure people actually got/get a chance to see it since it kind of got lost at the bottom of the page before this one. -.-;

Also, yeah, I probably will stick with a splash of Mend for "Pudini"/Dupli-Puni for now.

I'll probably add in a picture of him later today when I'm back at my computer and can grab his vector-ified self from my Puni Pile WIP (lol yes, with the exception of Puuntail, all of the Punies there will have their bodies fully drawn regardless of whether or not they're visible by the time the WIP is finished).

Have you considered using Sanguine instead of Ardent or one of the other split mixes you mentioned?

@Todd: yes, I did look at Sanguine as a potential Humor for Dupli-Puni, but it didn't really seem to fit to me. Or at least, when I initially looked at it it didn't. Um, what do you think it would do for him? After adding in Sanguine as an option, my current setup for him is:

DEFINITELY Shine Shine Humor
DEFINITELY Turnabout Turnabout Humor
Maybe a splash of Mend Mend Humor / Relief (probably not?)
Maybe Sublime / Sanguine (how would this work??) / Ardent Ardent Humor (not very likely at all)

I'm pretty sure he needs at least two Humors not including Turnabout to even have a workable recipe, so he will end up with a mix of either 3 or 4 Humors. Just not sure that, a setup like, for example, mostly-Shine-and-Turnabout plus just a little bit of Mend would be stable enough.


EDIT: Stupid. Stupid. Stuuuupiiiiiid. Me! He's got Duplighost powers and actively seeks out BOSS BATTLE enemies to learn to duplicate them; he needs Logos! So, maybe...? (Logos and Shine in equal proportions, serving as co-base Humors...?)

30% ? Grade Shine Shine Humor (CO-BASE HUMOR)
+ Extroversion
+ Joy
- Insanity

30% ? Grade Logos Logos Humor (CO-BASE HUMOR)
+ Memory

25% ? Grade Turnabout Turnabout Humor
+ Quirkiness/Uniqueness
- "Disturbing Tendencies"

15% ? Grade Mend Mend Humor
+ Empathy
+ Compassion
- Instability

Okay, so I decided I wanted to create a soulsmith avatar. However, due to the fact that I am too much like arcaneScribbler's Punelipi and I do not want to copy her, I am creating a character that is slightly different from me. I'm not really sure where to start and as such I have come here.

My one request is that my avatar is in some form smart. I do not mean genius level, but sort of smart, due to the fact that this is one of my traits that I like the most. So, where do I start?

Well, first things first is what sort of smarts do you mean? If you mean book smart, trying to a Logos oriented character (Due to the nature of logos) would be helpful. More social smarts have humors like Sublime.

What other traits do you think you have? Try glancing at humors and saying "Ok, I'm like this. Like this. Like this" etc.

I originally gave myself 7 humors that I felt like I fell under, then I cut it down to 4.

Book, I'm horrible with social situations.

So I cut it down to this list:

Logos (definitely)
Aeigis
Mend
Flow
Vision
Insight
Relief

I think I can work from this list.

Wh-why would you feel like you were copying me if that's your actual personality...? ( @^.^@; ) If anything I was unknowingly copying you! Also why do I feel so weirdly flattered by this...? x.x; Then again, Scribbs/Soul Smith Me is far more taciturn and overprotective than I am, so I guess I understand the whole 'making your self-character at least a bit different than real-you' thing... ...Also I am the same way: book smart, no real IRL social skills. -.-;

No, no, no, it's just any Skill that uses your CHA stat. Like Diplomacy or Bluff. I've never actually seen anyone use one before, though.

Well dude the only real advice I can give is to list out traits of humors you share in common with(Which you did)

Now you have to think! Reguarding both good and bad traits of a humor, which ones BEST describe you.

Sure you may be calm or lazy(Flow) usually. But is that a HUGE defining of who you are as a person? Is that something people are yourself knowingly know as a huge part of yourself?
