Is this forum a TV drama?

Anyone else read this forum for entertainment purposes? Seriously, this forum is literally like its own HBO show. Not only is there a great cast of characters and an intriguing setting, but it has all the elements that make up a great TV drama. I would even go so far as to claim that it is more entertaining than the game itself, given the horrible shape the servers are in now. It even has its own seasons! Instead of spending money developing Sins of a Dark Age, or even a SOASE 2, Starclad should instead pour money into adapting this forum into the next Sopranos. Think about how much bank they would make!

Quoting ZombiesRus5,

I take this to mean that our hero approves!

Quoting Unikraken,

GoaFan77, I'm deeply hurt that I wasn't mentioned by name. I pray to the altar of GoaFan.

Your prayers have been heard. You have been added to the cast.


The Heroes

ZombiesRus - The brave leader who tragically gets infected with Zombieitis early in the show and struggles with his condition until he can get a cure from the troll lords, only to find on defeating the last one that the cake it was baked into was a lie.

Ryat - The misunderstood sidekick who's always there for you yet always blamed for everything.

Volt_Cruelerz - The awkward technical smart guy the other main characters find hard to relate to, yet saves the day more than anyone.

Ue-Carbon - The drinking buddy who everyone loves to be around yet sometimes bites off more than he can chew.

Boshimi - The easily excited farm boy from a backwater world called Earth, he has an unusual love of missions involving guns, trucks, agrarian economies or preferably all three!

Dirty Sanchezz - The stern and straight talking voice of the law who none the less has pure intentions.

Myfisto - Our chief engineer, Myfisto doesn't venture out into the field much but keeps the base and kit running at 110% efficiency at all times.

Sinperium - The old timer and comic relief all in one. Tries to get everyone to make his mod for him, even in the midst of much more important things!

SpardaSon - A latter add on to the team, he always carriers 7 deadly weapons into combat. He also has something of a feud with Ue-Carbon who always says "This is Sparda!" whenever Sparda says something. 

Unikraken - A strange but intelligent creature with the tentacles of a kraken and the horn of a unicorn, many a troll underling has been speared to death by him. 

Seleucia - The antihero troll who was initially rejected by the troll lords, he switches sides every other season, finally settles down to become a true hero in the last few seasons, only to go mad with power in the surprise finale when GoaFan grants him his life long wish for Unity Mass to do chaining damage, leading to him becoming the final troll king.

 

The Troll Lords

Quar - The bizarre but brilliant right hand man of the first troll king, Mecha-Lenin, he nearly succeeds in defeating the heroes in the finale of the first season but is thwarted when he underestimates the power of his own divine relic.

Mecha-Lenin - The first troll king who is the main antagonist for the first few seasons, he gets his wish of trolling the entire universe, only to see the creators step in, kill him and undo the damage they caused.

Sinkillr - The Star Scream of the series, despite his many attempts to defeat our protagonists or usurp the reigning troll king, he never manages to either succeed or get himself totally destroyed in the process. Even The Yarlen is unable to get rid of him for good.

WorldStryder - The emo younger brother of Sinperium, his cross dressing and makeup make it impossible for anyone to know exactly how old he is. Takes his own life when he realizes no one likes him or even remembers him in season 5.

HuyMac - A troll lord who occasionally pleases his Troll King, but usually just spews profanity when things don't go according to plan.

KoK - A most determined villain who constantly tweaks his signature Kol rush technique in the hope it will one day destroy his enemies.

Sareth01/Carpetbomb: The dark shaman of the troll lords, he interprets the will of the troll gods for the dissemination to the lesser trolls. Rumored to have a mobile Advent Starbase as his high temple.

HammerX - This troll lord is a master of stealth and deception. Not even the other troll lords know exactly what he is or what his goals are, only that there are lots of badly bruised newbie corpses on his flagship.

 

Cameos

Psychoak - Volt's graduate school professor believed to have been killed by the troll lords until he shows up one day with a bad case of amnesia and a hidden mind control device in his head.

MajorStress - The critical producer of the show who appears whenever our characters break the fourth wall to say how desperate our screenwriters are!

Teun-A-Roonus - A bounty hunter fond of sniper rifles and more bizarrely yarn, he works for whatever side pays him better yet goes out of his way to hit Sinkillr.

Lavo - A struggling technical writer sometimes found at the local cantina, he can never understand why people never read his instructions before crashing his products.

MayallCommunion - A religious leader of an Advent sect, Sareth and HammerX manage to convince him that Hammer is their people's chosen one, bringing his world onto the side of the Troll Lords until their deception is revealed by the heroes.

Harpo - A kindhearted neutral merchant at a refueling station, his utilities have been known to help both hero and troll alike.

furyofthestars - A starbase architect imprisoned by Sareth to construct his Mobile Trancendia Starbase, his rescue becomes an important mission for our heroes once Mecha Lenin uses his talents to help construct his ultimate weapon.

Red Dwarf - A strange extra always seen trying to exit the room in scenes in public areas... or even some not so public ones!

Zeta1127 - The administrator of the great library of Weikei, it becomes the target of a troll attack after a new excavation reveals something strange.

Protoplazm - A slightly deranged scientist who develops a system that can convert the emotional damage caused by trolling into physical energy.

Candido - An ancient being with the power to shape shift into whatever form he pleases. Tends to get into long conversations with Sinperium about how much better things were in the old days.

 

The Gods

Cykur, Auqia, and Doci (possibly sub for a different top tier MP Player) - The holy trinity of the Bible of the Skilled Games, it is said that sacrificing a new player to them by launching him in an escape pod into a star will earn their favor.

GoaFan77 - The divine grand master of the art of modding, he's not to intervene directly in the affairs of mortals yet is known to subtly change the rules of the game to help the protagonists. Accidentally creates the last troll king when he grants Seleucia Unity Mass chaining damage in order to defeat Sinkillr.

The Yarlen - The herald of the creators, he guards the entrance to the Ironclad Stardock in the sky and is usually the only creator to interact with mortals.

The Frazier Twins - The twin rulers who were the first creators, they only show up when our heroes finally learn the secret of their existence.

Frogboy - An independent being of great power who joined forces with the creators, he mostly stays busy in his own sacred rainforest domain but occasionally congratulates our protagonists on their best victories.

zeta, red dwarf, hummer and unikraken are not really important enough to have in the cast list IMO.

Those cookies look tasty, and pudding is good too, but we all know brownies are the best dessert of all time.

Personally, I'm still trying to figure out which avatar is the right one, cause it seems as though every time I check back, it's changed! lol

Would love to be director of this mess. Thanks to my exquisite taste in art and generally everything the result would surely make even the bestest flicks by such notable persona of the cinemtographic industry as Ed Wood or Uwe Boll to pale in comparison.

BTW, dont like the strict differentiaton of characters into Heroes and TrollLords. Needs more of a grey area, morally torn characters on the crossroads.

I'll make sure to place that on the casting notes if you are unavailable to play yourself, your trolliness.   Assuming the Grim Reaper allows that of course.

GoaFan77, seeing as how we're all apart of this soon to start production ... what in game SoeSE ships would each of us be if say we had some sort of weird cross-over alter-universe voltron thing happening in say the fifth or sixth episode?

Fascinating. I now have a good idea of whose posts I should take seriously and whose to disregard.
