Has anyone considered that all of the favorite cartoon and muppet characters
of today could be some form of Spirits of Man or something utterly unique on
their own. I'd almost be afraid of going to Disney World or encountering
Bugs Bunny on a bad day.

Opinions ?

Actually, this is a great way to provide a bit of continuity to a
campaign. In spite of weird battles, cybered dragons, and other IE silliness,
the things that my players tend to remember from my immortals campaign are
Bertha the Busty Troll stripper at their bar hangout, and the fact that
_every_ hearth spirit they ran into was Elvis (can I hear a "wah-huh"?)

I do this a lot with the shamans in my groups.
I always rule that the more successes a shaman scores not only gains him
more services from the spirit, but also that the spirit is generally more
cooperative.
Likewise, if they only score one success, or if they use karma re-rolls to
gain that success then, the get something a little unpredictable.

So when the coyote shaman scored a dismal one success for a Force 6 City
Spirit in a heavily polluted dock area, he got Ghost Rider from Marvel
Comics.
For those who don't know - he's a Skeletal Biker with a flaming head, and a
demon bike with hellfire for wheels.
Scared the beejeezus out of him! ;-)

Also, every club's hearth spirit manifests as a different rock and roll
legend.
We've had Elvis, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, etc.

Nope...toxic Hearth spirits...all they do is sit around on the couch most of

hmmm....how about a City spirit appearing at batman, spiderman, or the

Or the Goodfeathers ( the pigeons from Animaniacs ) as a sky or forest

Nah...Call it a Distance Strike with a Gesture and an Incantation Geas.

Hey...how about the Dukes of Hazzard as a pack of Physical Adepts...extra
dice in Unarmed Combat, Projectile Weapons, Enhanced Centering with a
special skill of 'Rebel Yell' for those really difficult skid turns and
jumps, Combat Sense to help them dodge bullets, some extra Athletics, some

My favorite cartoon character is any body who can do it live. See Lethal Weapon
2 and.or McHale's Navy and you know what I mean (pulling a house around with just
a pick-up truck? What was the house made of? Cardboard? Or a babe pulling out a
rocket launcher to destroy a rocket just feet away from a boat. Talk about
cartoonish.)

However, realistic cartoons like the Dark Crystal are tops in my book. But we
are talking about characters.

This is also another option for the toons or other beings that a person could
summon up, actora and actresses (or to be more precise, the persona from the

IMHO, they would be more difficult to summon, why? Do you see this toon
every morning making children and adults laugh. This is why I believe that
toons can be summoned as spirits, and that some of the more popular ones are
pretty powerful anima/player spirits.

Your right in a way. But I've never had the opportunity to run an SR campaign
for very long. The attitude against RPGs here in Salt Lake City is quite
famous. Everyone here thinks that the activity is evil all the time and can't be
used for Good and Moral purposes.

Elton, I have but one thing to tell the Mormonic thumpers that do this to ya
or treat you or your other players in this fashion.

Go to Navou (spelling?) Illinois. There is a group of people there that play
RPG's, even if it is modified just a bit, so as to allow for moral
'interloping'. And they are the same religious coat as the Salt Laker's
(granted, they are also the one's that are sabatical half the time).

But could you see the potential, how about the character Arnold Shwarzenegger
played in True Lies (very popular), any of the characters from the Star Wars
trilogies, the Star Trek characters (God forbid, even Kirk).

Yep, definetly.

I think I have a solution. Why don't we get off cartoon characters for awhile and
go to books. Imagine a Sea Spirit manifesting itself as Captain Ahab or Moby
Dick? Or a mountain spirit manifesting itself as Kit Carson? How about a spirit
of Man manifesting (him?)self as Daniel Boone?

Something to think about.

Another excellent source, also, if one had say the entirety of an author's
collection of books they have written, would that mean could also summon up a
spirit that represents the author?

Elton, consider the possibilities of either getting Galileo, or Tom Clancy,
or Carl Sagan, or Aristotle. And going even the other way, genghis khan,
Adolf Hitler, and the like.

At least 300,000,000:1, or three hundred million to one. I don't think a shaman
would get his hands on all the works of an author. Some things authors write
never get published and are lost.

I think it depends how u consider the Spirit of Man: if it's a
representation of the shaman's psyche (which i don't believe), it could be
possible. However, i consider it more as a manifestation of the spiritual
energy of the ppl living (and having lived) at the considered place, so they
have to share something

Does this mean then that instead of summoning up a spirit that is a
representation of all that is contained within the books to summoning a ghost
of the person in question?
