Hey! Were going to continue for a bit with the more open, choice based challenge model, so here we go!
This next challenge is the Choose Your Own Adventure 3 challenge! You have 3 choices from our 2 properties and 1 established character from popular fiction!
AND REMEMBER! THIS TIME WE ARE EMPHASIZING COMPOSITION AND ENVIRONMENT!!!
We want to stress that you can either stick to the idea 100% or do whatever you want with the NAME and KEY elements. YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE THE TAGLINES AFTER THE NAMES IF YOU DONT WANT TO. but feel free if you do.
So, with that being said, here are your 3 choices!
MOLLY MILLIONS- from Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy
As our first major female character, we decided to go for something popular as well as iconic. Were going for a Cyberpunk staple, the femme fatale Molly Millions from the works of Cyberpunk creator William Gibson. She is a female assassin who uses state of the art bodily augmentations to enhance her fighting ability. Below is a description of Molly. Keep in mind her environment should also reflect Gibson's universe- a gritty lived in future set in a Blade-Runner like environment. there are also numerous scenes with her on space stations overlooking the world.
A lean, athletic, attractive woman who appears at first glance to be wearing mirrored sunglasses, Molly has in fact had her eye sockets sealed with vision-enhancing mirrored lenses that were surgically attached to her face by the skilled black-market surgeons of Chiba City. To accommodate the inset lenses her tear ducts have been re-routed to her mouth; consequentially, on the very rare occasions Molly cries, she spits out or swallows the tears instead. She never lets others touch the lenses as it would leave messy fingerprints requiring extra cleaning.
Her sensory input, metabolism and reflexes are also artificially heightened by means of electronic implants and exotic forms of advanced surgeries and other medical procedures. Molly also sports razor-sharp retractable claws underneath her fingernails: ten double-edged blades four centimeters in length.
*Molly has a very distinct look. TREAT THIS CHALLENGE LIKE A JOB! do research on the look and feel of the character, and attack from an informed position!
KEY ELEMENTS - True to description. Gritty / Futuristic feel.
KAGAN KRALL- IN THE YEAR 1986!
This option is an exercise in CHARACTER JUXTAPOSITION. Popularized by many movies in the 80s, a character from a set time period is transported to a strange future world not his own. Many movies delt with this by sending characters to the past, but for this challenge wed like you to bring some kind of barbaric warrior into the world of the late 1980s. everything in his surroundings should feel like 1986, offsetting his rugged and ancient look. you can also take any other approach to this you can come up with that works in the set guidelines. Maybe hes trying to fit in, like the trench-coated dude from highlander, or maybe hes just a shitty version of HE-MAN walking around a video game arcade. You decide!
KEY ELEMENTS - Barbarian look or feel to the character, 1980s looking environment. clear that he DOES NOT BELONG HERE.
JACK BLACK- VOODOO RIVERBOAT GAMBLER
Third in our series of celebrities who dont deserve their names, JACK BLACK is a voodoo themed riverboat gambler from the gulf regions of the american south. What you do outside of these themes is entirely up to you, including setting, time period, and clothing. maybe hes a literal voodoo witch doctor whos out wo win some cash, maybe hes a zombie raised from the dead to be a bread-winner, or maybe hes just a hexed adventurer with a sixth sense for card-games. SHOULD NOT BE THE ACTOR JACK BLACK. were just stealing his name cause he sucks and doesn't deserve it. good luck!
KEY ELEMENTS - voodoo themed character design, creole or riverboat visual setting. Not the actor jack black.
