You Build the Character #12 - C-3PO and R2-D2

This competition is now closed.

Hi everyone, and welcome back to You Build the Character. This month sees the first dual character competition, and who better than the Laurel and Hardy of Star Wars, C-3PO and R2-D2. You have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 23 September to post your RPG stats, and any notes you want to post explaining your decisions. Once submissions have closed, all forum members will have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 30 September to vote for their favourite. Whichever build receives the most votes will win.

The prize for winning is having your stats enshrined in the YBtC Hall of Fame, as well as the bragging rights.

The following rules apply to all submissions:
  1. All builds must be created according to RAW, with no house rules (no single Athletics skill, no bonus feats for bloodlines etc).

  2. You may use "unlimited" point buy for 3PO's and R2's ability scores, provided each score is between 3 and 18 at first level (before racial and age adjustments).

  3. You are free to use material from all official Saga Edition books, up to and including The Unknown Regions.

  4. Your stats may represent 3PO and R2 at any point during their lives, or serve as an overall interpretation of the characters as a whole. You may even include multiple stats to represent multiple points in time, provided they are all different level versions of the same build (ie no swapping out talents or feats). However, you must include at least one build for each character.

  5. 3PO and R2 are droids, and as such use the droid creation rules found in Chapter XI of the core rulebook. Alternatively, you may use the rules found in Chapter I of the Scavenger's Guide to Droids. Make sure to note which rules you are using in your post.

  6. You may change your stats at any point up until submissions close, at which point any edited stats will be disqualified.


Have fun everyone, and may the Force be with you. Smile

Ooh, Artoo and Threepio.

PJR: Sounds good. All you have to do is post them in this thread and you're in the running.

Everyone else: Come on, don't be shy! At this stage in the competition it could go to anyone, so why not have a go? Don't be put off if this is your first time entering either - more than one competition has been won by a first time entrant.

So yeah, you've got two weeks left. Let's see what you can do with the galaxy's most famous astromech/protocol droid duo. Smile

Okay I'll give it a shot.

3PO is pretty straightforward, except for his speed which looks to be less than standard human walking speed in the movies. Other than that he's a pretty basic droid model, and can be blown apart with one blaster shot as we know.

R2 is a little more well put together, but still vulnerable to a lucky crit from a blaster or ion weapon. The Brilliant Defense and Skill Challenge feats I gave him were based on the TPM scene where he repairs the shield generator, and of course he has to have all the slicing talents money can buy.

This one was hard to decide on as all of these versions have excellent premises and construction.

I think I'm going to place my vote with fairytalejedi though as those versions would fit nicely into any campaign set during the time period of the movies and are holistic interpretations of their abilities as a whole.

EDIT: Just realised that your above post Jedi_Comedian was your 1'000th. Congrats.

Heh, so it was. Probably means I spend too much time on here. Wink

You're not too far off yourself DS, by the looks of it.

I think I'm going to have to vote for fairytalejedi as well.
Good job everyone but I like fairytalejedi's the best.

All the submissions were awesome, I agree.
FairytaleJedi’s takes my vote :D

Derf's entry was very entertaining, but I've got to agree with everyone else, the best representation was fairytalejedi's so that's where my vote goes.
WINNER OF YOU BUILD THE CHARACTER #6 - Qui-Gon Jinn "For 300 years we prepared, we grew stronger. While you rested in your cradle of power." -Lord Malgus, The Old Republic Trailer "Am I the only one that saw the film and thought Obi-Wan was expressing an opinion of moral superiority/ideological victory with his statement? Y'know, instead of stating to the highly experienced combatant in front of him the obvious fact that he stood a few meters below him on the vertical axis?" -d20 Radio regarding Obi-Wan's comment to Anakin "It's over Anakin. I have the high ground."
Love "R2 the distraction machine" and Geonosis 3P0, but Fairytalejedi's builds best represent the characters.
OK everyone, voting is now closed. And the winner is... fairytalejedi! Congratulations FTJ, your stats will be entered into the Hall of Fame. Feel free to put "Winner of You Build the Character #12" in your signature.

Thank you to everyone who entered and voted, and keep your eyes peeled for the next YBtC competition. Smile
