List of recurring characters in issues

Postby Techolandia » Thu Mar 08, 2018 7:00 pm

So I'm making a list about this. If I get lucky, maybe Candlewhisper Archive will link to it here. Anyway, I assume that the same quote that Jutsa used here also applies to characters, not just nations. Also, if I missed anything, please let me know.

Your brother: This relative, who sometimes holds a high position in the government, always seems to be suggesting that you become more authoritarian at the expense of your citizens' political freedom, often suggesting that you get rid of elections.


Your sister: Your sister seems to be the complement to your brother. She is always asking you to make your country more democratic. often appears in the same issues as your brother, and sometimes holds a high government position. However, she occasionally pushes moralistic civil rights.




Other relatives: Issues where other members of your family, like your uncle, grandmother, niece, nephew, and cousin, appear or are referenced appear here.
[*]your arch-conservative cousin in #299: Some Like it Hot; Others Don’t[/list]


Catherine Gratwick: Whenever you need a woman to play a random and sometimes dubious role an issue, there's a good chance that you'll use Catherine Gratwick if you've heard of her. From being a child model to painting trains, Catherine Gratwick is the catch-all character for pretty much every crazy, random role that you can get the issue editors to approve. However, possibly because these kinds of roles are more likely to be crazy and dubious, Catherine Gratwick sometimes appears as a hyperfeminist caring teenage mother and model who has anger management issues.


A hot-dog vendor: Not always named a hot-dog vendor, this recurring character is always suggesting that you turn things that should be kept from the public for its own safety, like doomsday levers and zombie infections, into tourist attractions.


The CEO of a company: Appearing for many a different company in each issue where @@HE@@'s included, this character is suggesting something that will benefit @@HIS@@ company, increasing @@HIS@@ profits as a result. This sometimes even occurs in communist countries, where the .

Also, CEOs aren't the only ones who advocate for options benefiting their companies.




This isn't done yet, and I might not complete it, so feel free to pick up where I've left off if you're interested.

Good luck with these lists! They're a fair responsibility. ;)

Edit: Once you get to later issues, there will be several recurring characters. James Bont is the one that springs to mind, along with your Uncle.
(btw you may have more than one brother/sister/uncle but idk)

EDIT: I did it.

Aww, he would've been a good candidate for best character/best parody. :roll:

Which ones?

Also, I'm trying to add everything to the list in order so I don't have to worry about duplicates or missing anything.

There's a load of Elon Musk parodies, each with a differently spelt name. In fact, its now something of a running joke to use different Elon Musks in issues.

Ah, like that one issue about cars with five Elon Musks, each progressively getting less and less like the real one?

Oolong Musk is the parody I remember the most.

"The universe did never make sense; I suspect it was built on government contract."
-Robert Heinlein

"Affordability
Suitability (.22LR for squirrels, bigger .22s for long range little things, and big-bore for legal hunting reasons, etc)
Ammunition supply-chain (6.5x55 Swede and .303 British, although available, isn't exactly everywhere)
If it's ugly, uncomfortable, and can't shoot straight, but it accomplishes the above, then it's either a Mosin of a Hi-Point."

I think Otto Kratt, leader of Marche Noir, might be recurring, though I'm not sure.

Dustin Wiseau is the prime minister* of Brancaland in #915, but that's only one issue, so idk if that counts. :?

Again, I'm trying to go in order. Also, maybe someone else should take over this, as I'm probably not going to be too active (which is probably a euphemism) on NationStates for at least a while.
