Who is that Shadowling?
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:54:51 PM »
I've encountered a Shadowling in Somnus that is angry with Duvalier, "eats" him, and comments on his smell. Could this Shadowling be Flavin from TRPG2? Or is it that all Shadowlings just despise humans for the way we "reek of soft, spongy tissue?"

Flavin was never that bad...
And he was nice if you had spin saws

But what about without the spin saws? I recall him being so angry the Main stated that it felt like waves of heat were radiating from the Shadowling, and he noted that the Main smelled. Besides, he could've controlled his anger since he grew up, and turned the hatred into cleverness or something like that.

There's probably more than one Shadowling that hated humans with a passion that's in its blue stage at the moment.  If it was Flavin, though, it would be a nice reference.
He drove his expensive car into a tree and found out how the Mercedes bends.

Methinks one would have a clearer indication if that was Flavin from Craig- I'm pretty sure that although few Shadowlings turned loyalist, quite a few,whilst not being so extreme, do continue believing in the "old values" of the Shadowling Empire.

Indeed, but then he probably would be called Flavin by name - after all, the Main from TRPG2 somehow knew all the names of all the Shadowlings (except for Flavin, initially) so I'd expect the "Shadowling" to be a place-holder for a proper name. Then we'd know if that's Flavin or not. Still, Flavin already finished serving in the military, might that not be an indicator of him possibly turning purple by the time TSoG starts?

I believe the Main from TRPG2 scanned those Shadowlings whose names he knew, for example: Snarl should've benn easy, since he usually hangs out in one spot, Flavin, however, tried to avoid the fleshling and therefore, must have never been scanned by the Main, not allowing him to know that Flavin is that Shadowling's name.

I say its Flavin. I'm sure everyone thinks its Flavin.

Apparently I was wrong a few people voted no.

I allowed people to change their votes in case of a change of mind, or CraigStern reveals who the Shadowling is, if he/she is important enough to have a name, anyway.

So far no one has voted (or changed their vote from) an affirmative "yes", which isn't surprising giving that there are probably many more Shadowlings who feel the same way as Flavin did, and having a different Shadowling express similar sentiments would, methinks, be much better, as it shows a more expanded universe and allows the players to apprecaite that there ins't just the one Shadowling called Flavin who can be quite disagreeable in nature and would openly savour feeding off the Main's negative emotions.

KZ it is not that we don't want to see expanded telepath universe it is just that we like to see cameo appearances from Telepath Chapters One and Two. I mean when I saw the guard saying we should have got the Helenites then a big smile stretched across my face. I'm pretty sure all Telepath fans would like a bit of Nostalgia to go with their TSoG.

I quite understand, Zackirus- I would definitely like to see many references to TRPG2 & 1, but I think in this case creating a "greater universe" might be worthwhile, rather than a cameo appearance for Flavin (plus, I think there is more than enough space and potential to include Flavin elsewhere in Somnus or outside of it... ;) ).
