Which DW character would you most like to be and/or meet?

Postby Chris » Wed Jun 22, 2011 8:50 am

I know while I read TPs novels I really like the characterisation. So who would you like to meet and/or be in a DW novel?

Personally I like Sam Vimes 'FU' attitude to life, there are times when I would like to be him, but I'm not sure I'd like to meet him and be on the recieving end of his attitude.

I would love to meet Twoflower. His naive take on life would be the exact opposite of the cynical Sam Vimes and refreshing.

Which character do you most empathise with and/or would like to be/meet?

I think I'd like to meet Vetinari. Dunno if I'd like to be him, though. Meeting Rincewind would be great, too.

So, who would I like to be? Angua perhaps? That smelling colours thing seems interesting. Or the librarian, as he is with books all day and isn't bothered by much.

Meeting and being, huh? I'd like to be Ponder Stibbons.

But as for meeting, well, tough decision. Either Death or Susan would be top priority, providing that I did not have to die to meet the former.

I think I'd prefer to be Ridcully rather than Ponder, less work involved and in remarkably good health :)

As for meeting, I agree Susan would be interesting but I think I quite fancy a trip to the pub with Nanny Ogg
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Angua would be one I would like to try out, as the wolf aspect would be fun.

I can't personally see the attraction of Ponder Stibons, but Ridcully would be fun!

Leonard of Quirm would be interesting to meet.

Nanny Ogg sounds like fun to meet. One of the Wizards would be fun to be...

I chose Ponder because I thought I would enjoy the intellectual activity he does. And might like one or two of the, uh, 'interesting times' a tiny bit better than he would.

Care to explain where your thoughts are wandering?

I meant in terms of adventure and peril. Jeez, LilMaibe, if you thought I meant what I think you meant, then I don't know what I can say. :lol:

I think the senior faculty of Unseen University would be amazing on our trivia team!

not because we'd win or anything, because it's held in a pub, but because the other members of my team remind me a lot of them and thus I think it would make for the most amusing conversations ever.


and I want to go for a ride on Binky!
