Speculationorium: Resurrection

Postby SoItBegins on Wed Dec 05, 2007 8:15 am

...And so it came to pass that the topic was resurrected by the Hunter.

Well? Who is he? Is that his real face or not? More of them or just something said to make Mark noivous?

In short, is he real?

Well then:

I think he's just one of those guys who fears what he doesn't understand. I've known plenty of them... guys who assume anyone who's not "normal" must somehow be dangerous deviants.

So 1.: The Hunter is just some ignorant jerk.

Nah, that is way to simple. I mean this is a comic being written by a clever author for entertainment. There has to be a twist to this somewhere. I am sure that these hunters are going to be a group of people who we slowly learn more and more about. Their motives, their organization, perhaps even the individual hunters. And of course just when they are starting to make sense, a new plot twist to blow everything we thought we knew out of the water! Or at least that is what the comic has lead me to believe it is in the style of...

But for the hunters to just be a gathering of ignorant jerks, I think is too simple compared to what we have seen of the comic so far... There must be layers upon layers of unexpected plot!

It is with that in mind that I propose that the hunters are really time travelers attempting to prevent an acocolyptic future in which geeks along with the aid of an abnormally clever raccoon caused the fall of all civilization. So, yeah. When the cute little raccoon is introduced, remember that he is really plotting destruction.
My name made sense when I first thought it up.

I apologize in advance for the inevitable awkwardness.

There's already a raccoon. He's called 'Joel'.

I am in the "Not Joel" party. However, I could see this particular Hunter end up being related to one of the characters.

I'll go with the long shot of him being a sports card/collectables shop owner whose place went out of business when a gaming shop opened a few stalls down at the mall.

At least you're not going with the even longer shot of 'Jess'.

I still am. There are multiple Hunters, after all.

Hmm... or perhaps something a little different? Maybe she dated the Hunter back in high school, and she dumped him for a geek, which led to his creation in the first place?

Nah, that's a long shot. I could totally see her having some relevance to the Hunters, though.

What if the Hunter were really Mark's dad who was presumed dead after getting chased up a tree by an army of poison tree frogs but escaped and joined a secret society devoted to the stamping out of weregeeks, werenerds and weredorks, the latter two not being as dangerous as werenerds tend to keep to the back corners of libraries and weredorks seem to be no different from regular dorks, but now he's back and trying to keep Mark from getting sucked into it and initiate him in the cause of the Hunters in the style of Darh Vader and the Sith?

Nah, that's too silly. No-one would ever use a plot like that.

Which is exactly why I mentioned. I really have no idea what's going on, but didn't want to say.

All we can say for sure is, if the Hunter is imaginary, he's an awful hypocrite.

If he's imaginary, does he know it?

As you mentioned in your other post, what if the hunter is from Joel's imagination? Really, kind of a cool concept. Though if Joel did not know that geek fantasies were coming true, he could not have given them such a motive... But if he did, then he intentionally created something that exists only to kill his players! By your standards Narf, I assume that makes him an exceptional GM =)

No. One must never kill the players.

That removes the opportunity to torment them in the future! :D

Nah, they'd be fine; I'm sure Jess has 5000GP worth of diamonds lying around.

That's the real reason Dustin invited her to gaming night. Everyone's going to be killed in a ritualistic murder spree so they can see what a resurrection spell feels like.

Dude, I had this idea for stories a few years ago. What if all the things that are made up by geeks and nerds actually ARE real and come to life because of the weird imaginations of the people who think them up? That's seriously what I think is going on with the Hunter.

Yeah, it can be cool wondering the 'What if's'. :)
