Character Contest Winner – Professor Julius Rightsworthy

The second winner of the character contest is the esteemed Professor Julius Wrightsworthy. We loved the fact that someone was actually bringing and playing a mad scientist to the table, and the full character stat line really helped us understand who this brilliantly mad scientist was and what they can do. You don’t always see characters like this in roleplaying games, and the good Professor would be welcome at any of our tables – although maybe not quite so close. We don’t trust that Killbot to not turn on us!

 

VALOR: 0

Name: Professor Julius Rightsworthy

 

Backstory

Julius Rightsworthy is perhaps the model of the mad scientist, seeking to understand as much of the world

as he can, according to concrete scientific laws. From these laws, he seeks to derive new creations, and

establish a significant change across the world. An end to old regimes of inefficient tyranny, and a

beginning of a New Order, of advancement, justice, and truth.

In his course on attempting this, he has created nine generations of advanced Killbots. The first, refused to

exhibit even limited sentience (it was a mechanical pencil.) The second, while it built upon the first,

refused to allow itself to use violence (it was a sentient mechanical pencil.)

The third, however, was too successful by far. Killbot Mark 3, a sentient machine built into the

framework of a castle, began to spread itself far and wide. By separating off its towers, K-3 used it’s own

self-repair mechanism to build more versions of itself, till it threatened the whole region. Professor

Rightsworthy threw himself into the fight, ultimately giving up much of his own power, his youth, and

one of his legs in the hunt for Killbot-3.

For a little while after that, Professor Rightsworthy laid low, iterating and modifying his various

inventions and patents, all the while denying any involvement in the destruction caused by K-3. However,

before too many years had passed, Rightsworthy became aware of what his sacrifices had truly cost – and

more, for all he had given, he had done nothing to truly change the world. What’s more, he grew to

believe that some aspect of K-3 had survived, and resurfaced under the name of Doctor Rightsunworthy.

In the end, Rightsworthy gathered all his means, and the final iteration of the Killbot, developed during

the K-3 War, the Killbot Mark 9. With a nanobot formulation, and a reconstructive intellect, K-9 was

effectively immortal and self-improving, while still bound by overriding commands to stop the K-3 War

from repeating itself.

With these, Professor Julius Rightsworthy has sought an adventuring guild, to rebuild his power, gain

allies, and defeat the Killbot Mark 3 menace once and for all. While having fun along the way, of course.

 

Description

Julius Rightsworthy is a man old beyond his years. While only 41, his hair is grey all over and his skin

prematurely dull and pale. The small fortune he has amassed from his inventions has allowed him to style

himself in the highest of fashion, with a top-hat and a suit for every occasion. The cloth of one trouser-leg

is folded over at the knee, and he sits in a wheelchair of his own intention, equipped with various weapons

of destruction, and just as many tools of creation.

By his side, often stands a robotic hound. Though steel all over, it largely resembles a Doberman, with a

large slit down it’s back. In combat, that slit opens, revealing a tri-barreled rotary cannon and a long

mechanical arm, equipped with several bandage dispensers, medical needles, and welding tools for K-9’s

own use.
