Thinking of a Bard/Minstrel and Ranger.

I’ve purposefully overloaded Neutral G. even his weapons are sentient and his extroardinary abilities, some of which are innate, seem pretty damn powerful.

I’ve since moved on from Neutral G. to other characters. I might “nerf” Neutral G. a little. He seems a little O.P. (“overpowered”).

I’ll clean things up eventually – maybe even write a little fiction.

I like sentient weapons and talking swords with their own alignments and character sheets.

Bottom line: Some of the dialogue in my book is by … sentient, talking swords and other objects.

the leader of an assasins guild is a telepathic daggar named Cruelty.

Will this make the final cut? I’m toying wiht the idea that the sword, Benevolence, has it’s own viewpoint, it’s own dialogue, it’s own character scenes. Same with the daggar: Cruelty.

Maybe i’ll switch up a viewpoint character a little, make it an art object, i.e. a talking sword / telepathic daggar.

Benevolence and Cruelty: Neutral G’s Two Magical Weapons.

Unlike many wizards, Neutral G dual wields a longsword which is thought to have it’s own good alignment, probably lawful, called: Benevolence, which argues with him constantly over his morally corrupt decisions and his siding with evil, but reluctantly stays by his side.

His offhand is a dagger called Cruelty, which is also has it’s own alignment, that of evil.

It is thought that both weapons espouse a neutral position but it is uncertan why they remain with their wielder, drawing him ever toward good and/or evil even though he is the God of Neutrality.

Equip All Martial Weapons (Neutrality): Speculation: it is not certain how a wizard can wield a sword and daggar, but some claim that neuts train with all martial weapons, and equip whatever they find on hand, regardless of their class, mainly because of Neutral G. They forego bonuses of Specializations to do so. “Whatever it is, so may it be.”

Speculation: Is Neutral G a high level wizard and a dual-class offspec? He communes with animals and shapeshifts and wields a sword and daggar.

Knights have been known to swear an oath to Benevolence and have flocked to Neutral G’s faction, setting up facilities to train with longswords. Some have remained Good but side with Neutrality.

Cunning Assassins respect Cruelty’s magic, and ever whisper to Neutral G in his mind, corrupting him with evil thoughts and begging him for assistance elsewhere, ever in secret.

How this faction, Neutrality, will play out, is anybody’s guess.

The “Neut-By-Force” or Artist’s conundrum.

Many people flock to Neutral G. and believe him to be a kind and benevolent humanoid, whenever he deems it appropriate. It would seem that humanity is mesmerized by his leadership style, and his granting of wishes and his wizardy.

But how he came to be the de-facto ruler of the Neuts, has a bloody history. He actually beheaded a kind and benevolent king, who was neutral, but often sided with Good, to take his throne and the title of “NEutral God”.

This bloody history, having happened centuries ago, is forgotten by many, but not by some scholars.

Therefore, the “neut-by-force” conundrum is ever at play, and Neutral G. knows that, if he is attacked and killed, someone else might rise up in his steed and become de-facto ruler of the Neuts instead of him.

Fortunately, Neutral G. is probably unkillable, having become a part of the fabric of the universe, and immortal. He regenerates quickly, even amputated limbs grow back, and has access to wish spells, for which he is venerated and worshipped like a God. Some say the real Neutral G. is traversing the multiverse, and all of the Neutral Gs in Gaia are mere copies, his servants, and apparitions.

It is said that his wishes are granted by the gods himself, to appease him.

Defining “Neutral G.”

This is from a homebrew i made, without knowing much about 5e. Don’t quote me yet, as it’s a work in progress. Im adding to it daily and editing it often.


Neutral G. is an evil wizard who is the self-proclaimed god of neutrality. He claims to be neither good nor evil. But he often sides with evil (for now) and has done so for centuries, tipping the scales of balance towards evil.

Neutral G is venerated by goodies, who want him to side with Good and tip the scales of neutrality towards GOod’s favor. He can do so by granting those who believe in him, an extraordinary amount of luck. He also has been known to grant wishes to those who venerate him, and miracles to good people.

a little bit about Neutral G.

-Neutral G. can fly, and often flees from combat by doing so. He is known to take long voyages of flight to travel the continent and even the cosmos, and seems to have an innate ability to fly, as it comes natural to him. He’s often seen hovering, moving faster than if he would have been on the ground. People cower before his hooded visage. Some say he was born of a dragon mother who took human form, or that he has some dragon ancestry in him.

-Neutral G. can cast and grant wishes, making him one of the most respected, and most powerful wizards, ever to have occured. He is venerated by good, evil and neutrality guilds and is considered de-facto ruler of the neuts or neutral people, even though he often sides with evil for the moment, for reasons unknown. Some scoff at this and call him “Evil G.”, though never to his face.

-Neutral G. can commune with spirits and animals. he often has an animal companion with him, and talks to birds. Small animals flock to his aid and cause. He ever claims that animals are venerable and neutral, and he ever protects them. He can shape-shift into animals and enemy creatures and is often seen as a beholder in combat.

-Neutral G. has “the highest luck score possible; the highest luck score in the game” and often gambles with unsuspecting people. “to acquire wealth, therefore selfish, therefore evil”.

-Neutral G. Can take on the guise and form of any other person on earth, and is very convincing when he does so, often getting his way as the other person.

-Neutral G. can communicate telepathically with anyone in the world, at any time.

-it is thought that Neutral G. is a part of the fabric of the universe, representing the turning of luck. That is why he is venerated by soldiers and artists. SOme claim that he is, was, and always shall be. Apparently he cannot die and is immortal.

-Neutral G. often travels back and forth in time, and can see the future. He can change people’s fate by granting them luck, and often travels forward in time to see the outcome of their fate. He then travels back to modern time, knowing the future. This takes him a long time to do, however, and often weeks, months, pass with him traversing alternate futures. At these times he is missing from court and sentences are handed down summarily without him.

-Neutral G. is likely unkillable and a fabric of the cosmos. He often flies away from combat.

-Neutral G. is often seen as a royal court jester or fool, tipping the scales in the courts to neut’s favor, by fooling kings with his humor. Some say that he is Lawful because of his keen interest in courts and trial outcomes of the populace – and his “effect” on people of importance. Others claim that his “rule of law”, if he espouses one as a diety, is that of a chaotic nature.

-It is thought that Neutral G. can traverse a multiverse, and can communicate with people from other universes which he calls “seeds”. He has claimed to communicate from people from Earth, which he claims is “another seed in the multiverse”.

Known Abilities and spells he is developing (from my Homebrew):

Time Walking. Neutral G can tell your future. He often peers into the future, but also travels to it to physically check it somehow. This takes him on long voyages into potential futures, often lasting up to a month, to make sure the timeline he is in is the right one.

Sealed Fate. an instant-cast death spell on a one week cooldown. however, often the soul returns to the body, after about a week, and the spell has been therefore deemed a failure by him. Still, he has used it often to flee dangerous situations.

Time-stop. Neutral G. often stops time when he is attacked, so that he gets in several rounds of combat before time re-occurs – usually casting spells – but often he flees combat by flying away. He is deadly and powerful and all-knowing, but often shies away from combat.

Omnipotence. Neutral G. always seems to know what you are about, and what you are about to do. He can probably detect alignment at will, and often gazes into possible futures innately. He is rarely caught off-guard.

Shape-Shifting: Neutral G. can become anyone, or any creature, for a limited duration, and often attacks as a beholder, when cornered into a fight. He then frequently becomes a small bird or other flying creature and flies away. Some speculate that he can shape-shift into a great dragon, which is an ancestral ability of some kind, as he might be descended from dragons.

Aura of Charisma: Inspiration Theory: It is theorized that Neutral G. is very charming, when applicable. He inspires others to do evil deeds, if he is siding with evil, for example. People flock to his causes and cheer him on. All the court is awash with his opinions, and his opinions are espoused and ever requested. He curries favor with important people, and they are always inspired by him somehow. It is said that trials are decided by him, and not the Evil King he often supports.

Alternate: Aura of Patheticness/Meekness. At other times, Often Neutral G. shape-shifts into a simple court jester or fool when he is bored, and people are convinced he actually is one. This has become the symbol of his reign, as he often states “I am ever the fool” and chuckles softly to himself. HE can be seen at court, influencing decisions.

Psionics? It is speculated that Neutral G. Might be a low to mid level homebrew psionic in addition to a high level wizard. He delves deep into people’s minds and controls their intuition by inspiring them. They speculate that he can charm people to aid in his causes.

Illusion: Copy-Cat or Abberation: Several copies of Neutral G. have been created, to do menial tasks on his behalf. They look, act and talk like the real thing, and communicate and are commanded by him telepathically. If one is attacked, all become alerted. As such, nobody knows where the real Neutral G. is, and whether or not they’re talking to him, or a copy of himself. He spends all his time, time-walking the cosmos or multiverse or visiting possible alternate futures, whilst his copies potentially rule the cosmos, or so it is whispered.

Thinking of producing films

I’ve been “writing” (thinking about, but not physically typing yet), some films which I feel would be best left as short films, and paired together.

I don’t think many people would view my films, but maybe they could download them for free or something.

To raise money for the projects, I’m thinking of selling domains, made up of keywords from the films I make.

heck, i already pocketed neutralgod.com for a few bucks. anybody want it for 10 grand?

I didn’t think so.

Maybe when that particular film comes out, the domain will be worth something. If ever. It’s a long shot, but I’m some kind of writer. Maybe I’ll figure things out.

Started work on two works: “The Epithet” and “The Totalitarian State”

I’ve started work (mostly for fun, for i’m an amateur and consider myself a literary hack), on two scripts.

The Epithet

and

The Totalitarian State

Stemming from my experiences in talking to myself, wherefore, a totalitarian regime tried to, and I quote “seize the means of production and create in me an artist, that will write and produce works of art”, the voices in my head declared me a neutral god, and attempted a coup of my faculties.

The epithet use, which is a movie about the loaded term, the n word, and why I’ve been called it my entire life, from the voices in my head.

Both of these films, if they ever even make it to production, which they won’t, are probably already opposed.

But I write for fun, and not for profit. So we’ll see.

THe fact is: I created them, and that’s art. I’m alright with that.

As the totalitarian state in my mind says “please don’t support our Artist. Leave him broke please. No to art.”

I’m an artist. and writing is a compulsion I suppose. Very Totalitarian of me.

Except im a left-leaning progressive.

Nobody home, as the voices often say.

Update: Neuts should not be able to faction change to good/evil

After careful consultation with “the guild” (i.e. the voices in my head), we’ve decided that neuts should be neuts for life, and that they should never be able to change faction.

However, only neuts can decide whether or not they are currently supporting either good or evil, and tip the balance.

When the campaign starts, most neuts have whole-heartedly sided with evil, mainly to profit. Will Good mount a comeback, and convince neuts to their side?

Anyway, it rests.

“Neuts for life” I suppose. How’s that for a motto? Until I think of a better one.


“Neutral G.”

Steve Mini from the 6.

I suppose I have to answer the question: Just why am I supporting both good and evil as a neutral person? I espoused this tradition, this neutrality guild, this meta, as a joke to myself, as a joke to the voices in my head. I never thought I’d actually sit down and analyze the disposition, and actually agree with it.

Certainly therefore I am ill. note: Evil just means selfish, it doesn’t mean anything else. A CEO is typically evil in my world, which i’ve troll dubbed: “Gaya” or “Gaia”, because he probably stands to profit at the expense of, well, everyone else. Making a quick buck is seen as evil, because only you stand to profit, making it a selfish act.

Doc says I’m doing great. Better than ever. Passed my yearly course. Back in university finishing my BA.

By the way fellas, I have no criminal record, and don’t condone the use. I am ill.

See you next time.

Goodies and Baddies are diametrically opposed; Neuts side with either/or.

I suppose in this “game” or “campaign” of mine, Goodies are always opposed to Baddies and vice versa in a classic Good Vs. Evil campaign. (note: I hear voices. I often run a homebrew campaign of Dungeons and Dragons with the voices in my head as player characters. warning: If you hear voices, talk to your doctor. I’m also medicated and am managing my symptoms well – but i do hear bad voices from time to time. Gaming is a coping mechanism in my opinion).

Anyway: this is a classic two-faction war, Goodies vs. Baddies, Good vs Evil. Except there’s a third faction which tips the scales of balance: Neuts.

Goodies often accrue more than enough wealth, and give the rest away to other goodies. Perhaps a percentage, say, 25-40% would be welcomed, sort of like a tithe or tax, to be given away to other players. Baddies are by far the richest by the end of the “game” therefore; having accrued more wealth than goodies and of course, more than neuts, who don’t accrue much wealth at all – though some neuts are comfortably wealthy, none are fantastically rich – or else they are no longer neut, according to neuts, for, If they earn too much, they’re forced to faction change permanently into either good or evil.

The strategic choice, therefore, might be to start as neut, learn the game, make too much wealth intentionally to trigger a faction change, and then decide whether or not you want to convert to good or evil at that point. And this is, in fact, always encouraged, so that starting players are usually neut – if not always.

But this is a video game i’m designing; and I need to design a fantasy campaign for Dungeons And Dragons and/or a few novels.

I literally play this by myself. “1 player map” as I often joke.

I want to mention that I’m “metastatic” as the “Neutral God” of the campaign; Which is a neologism I coined (I’m diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia and hear voices, too; apparently I coin my own words, which mean whatever I want them to mean). Metastatic basically means that I can be anyone, anywhere in the world, and talk speak act and think like them, sort of like the agents in the matrix, or the gods in ancient Greece. (Note: This word already exists. I just gave it a new meaning).

When I “become” someone else, and talk to the voices in my head, which make up a plethora of dialogue, fiction, characters, heroes, and villians … they literally think i’m that other person that I morphed into, and I hear them react and talk and think like i’m that other person i’ve metastatically morphed into. (Like the agents in the matrix or gods in ancient Greece).

Go figure that one out: I didn’t: I couldn’t figure out the voices for a bunch of years where I was afraid. I’m now recovering well, still medicated, and finishing my BA.

Like I said. If you hear voices, talk to your doctor. I manage my symptoms enough to be back in University finishing my degree in English literature. I want to be a writer. I hope to inspire other paranoid schizophrenics or otherwise disabled people and their families. So here we are.

Can Neuts accept wealth and remain neutral?

I’ve been writing a campaign where neuts side with evil and good, but espouse their own, middle path, called: Neutrality.

I’ve been toying with the idea that Neuts can no longer accept wealth, in exchange for becoming neutral. When they do, they’re either siding with good or evil respectively. Evil is fantastically rich, Goodies just make ends meet, and give a lot of wealth away if and when they have more than they need, and Neuts often decline to accrue wealth altogether – and when they do, Good or Evil stands to profit.

But, I hear y’all crying, how will neuts ever come to wealth, power, prestige and fame? Having no wealth for one faction will cripple an entire Neutrality faction, in my fictional world, which I’ve troll called: “Gaya” or “Gaia”.

Well in this fictional world, some of the most powerful people have no wealth, and espouse a neutral way. Judges, Lawyers, Executives of large Corporations – all of these people are wealthy, but not as rich as Evil people, and not fantastically rich, per-se.

I hear y’all thinking: Evil is the way to go. Since you can accrue wealth, not give a poop about morality, and in general, have a higher chance of making more money than the other two factions.

But that’s just the point. Evil often prevails over Good, and neuts often side with evil to make a profit.

Sort of like real life.

I’ll toy with this idea for a while and see where neuts stand – I literally run a campaign with the voices in my head as player characters. Sounds confusing? It is. That’s why I’m medicated. Talk to your doctor if you hear voices. I see my doctor all the time.
