Pohatu: Uniter of Stone Posted September 1, 2017 Share Posted September 1, 2017 You're out in the wilderness of a distant moon, when suddenly you encounter a gang of thieves robbing a group of fellow travelers! You turn to run when one of them points to you, but as soon as you get to the top of the hill you just came from, there he is. SHOTGUN DINOSAUR! Terrified, you turn back towards the thieves, but now they're coming after you. The terrible lizard looks at you, looks at them and loads his weapon. He saunters towards the criminals on lanky legs and you take this chance to escape from the chaos as the sounds of gunfire echo throughout the valley... While not actually a dinosaur, everyone calls him SHOTGUN DINOSAUR (You yell it while speaking) because there isn't really anyone left alive or willing to call him otherwise. An explorer and mercenary of questionable sanity, SHOTGUN DINOSAUR is most famous for two things: 1. Having a shotgun. 2. Being some sort of dinosaur-like creature. Wait, make that three things- 3. His eagerness to shoot first and ask questions never. Despite his behavior, SHOTGUN DINOSAUR is actually a pretty nice guy if you can stay on his nice side. He's willing to take any sort of job he deems moral, something officials are still trying to figure out the pattern behind. From what they know, he's all for freedom and kindness, and believes that the best way to make the world a kinder and more free place is to simply remove those in opposition. If his attitude was more... stable, he'd be a remarkable asset to the world. Unfortunately, SHOTGUN DINOSAUR doesn't care about the law. He does what he wants and what he feels is best for the world. Surprisingly, he understands that his impulsiveness is one of his biggest flaws... does nothing to change it. He's not loved, he's not hated, he's just kind of... accepted. The following quotes are from inhabitants of Qyltor-5B, the moon where SHOTGUN DINOSAUR lives and operates. "Yeah, I've seen him before. He actually just shopped here yesterday. I don't know what he needed a six-pack of soda, thirteen lamps and a can of paint for, but as long as he's not bothering me and my store stays safe, I'm fine with it." "Well, he's technically an outlaw but we let his... often gruesome actions slide because somehow the greater good always benefits. We certainly don't condone what he does, like blasting criminal robots apart in broad daylight, but he could be much worse. But rest assured- if he ever turns on the public, we've got contingency plans galore to bring that cyborg dinosaur to justice." "SHOTGUN DINOSAUR? He's super cool, like I even drew a picture of him and the teacher said I shouldn't admire criminals but this guy is like Robin Hood because he cares about people and just wants them to be nice. So, um, he can be a pretty mean guy and I don't like that, but SHOTGUN DINOSAUR is only like that to mean people does it to make sure nice people don't get hurt." "My feelings on SHOTGUN DINOSAUR are mixed. As the mayor of this town, it is my duty to uphold the law and protect the public peace. SHOTGUN DINOSAUR acts in direct opposition to these virtues- he carries loaded lethal weapons in the open, disregards the law and enforces his sense of justice with no mercy. However, I can't deny that his actions typically result in happy endings. Who could forget the time he single-handily fought off a small fleet of space pirates, or, em... "eliminated" the highwaymen plaguing those travelling to and from the local spaceport? I cannot say I approve or condemn SHOTGUN DINOSAUR, and that's all you're getting from me. As you can see, there is generally a feeling of approval and gratitude towards SHOTGUN DINOSAUR, but at the same time he his feared and treated as an outsider. There are similar feelings and incidents from the other towns as well- SHOTGUN DINOSAUR has no defined area he patrols, and has been spotted in nearly every town on the Yorhj continent at some time or another. For better or for worse, SHOTGUN DINOSAUR is here to stay, fighting for freedom with all his force, crusading for kindness with no remorse. (This guy isn't one of my best MOCS, and was more of an experiment in two things: making a shotgun and making something that can balance well in a variety of poses. His legs are very posable, although holding those poses is another story. His feet were one of the main focuses of the model, and they can also take many positions with stability, although they are not shown here. Here's a link to the Brickshelf Gallery when it becomes public. Hopefully the gun part doesn't break any BZP rules, I haven't been around in a while and from what I can see in the rules it should be allowed.) 3 Quote I HATE SCORPIOS ~Pohatu Master of Stone, 2015 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
