HEROES FOR ALL
With their mighty blades they gallantly protect the weak from danger. They use skills and deadly spells to thwart the plans of an evil villain bent on world destruction. They each carry their own weapon of choice and have their own motives for saving the world or helping people out. They are the different heroes from role playing video games. There are many different groups of heroes in role playing video games. Every hero is usually very different from the other. There is the Predestined Hero who is told of what he or she must do and trains for that purpose. Another group would be the Protective Hero who must guard a person with his or her life. The Out for Him Self Hero is one of my favorite groups. They just want to use the rest of the party to get what their looking for. Then, there is a Reluctant Hero who is not sure of what he or she must do and thinks a lot about if they should help or not. My personal and last group I will discuss is the Destructive Hero. No matter what gets destroyed and no matter how much destruction there is they do what ever it takes to get the job done. In my many hours of playing Role playing Games, I've realized that more than one type of hero can be in a game.
The Predestined Hero has been training for his or hers whole life for one
particular purpose. This may consist of journeying to a promised land of some sorts and leading others to it. It could also be to fight some sinister being that is descending on the Earth for one purpose only and that is to destroy it. The Predestined Hero is well aware of the consequences of his or her mission. They are even willing to sacrifice them selves to save all they care about. I have noticed that this is the fate of a lot of Predestined Heroes and it is all ways a sad occasion when the group must face the threat knowing their friend must die. The journey a Predestined Hero must take is long and full of parole. It is a very good thing that he or she has a Protective Hero to assist them on the long road ahead.
The Protective Hero is more than likely to be clad and bright and shiny armor with his trusty sword at his side. He is willing to plunge head first into battle and take down the threat no matter what it is in order to protect his charge. He has great physical strength and can get the job done. He always questions the parties plan and tries to discourage the person he is guarding from going into really dangerous situations. Sometimes he succeeds but most of the time he fails to do so. He will always respect the decision of the one he is guarding. I've noticed that a Protective Hero is very polite and loyal to his charge and the group. A Protective Hero always has his eye on the quite and sneaky Out for Himself Hero.
The Out for Himself Hero aids the party in some ways but mostly he's just out for himself. He could be using the party to seek revenge on the main villain. Maybe the villain killed his love or destroyed his village. The Out for Himself Hero could be misleading the group. Tricking them into a trap and then, steal their valuables. The group will catch up to him, save him from a tough spot, making him see the wrong in his ways. Sometimes the Out for Himself Hero is working for the villain but becomes good friends with the heroes and turns against the villain. Ive noticed that the Out for Himself Hero can't stand the unsure, changing mind and talkative ways of the Reluctant Hero.
The Reluctant Hero usually stumbles into the wrong place at a very wrong time. He finds a touchy situation going on and tries to help. This could be saving a woman from a kidnapper or helping out a resistant faction. He then finds him self trying to save the world from disaster while trying to stay alive. He asks him self if what he is doing is the right thing and what he is fighting for. The Reluctant Hero sometimes tries to forget what he did and go on with his life, but usually gets dragged back into the fray. For example, if he saved someone then that someone could turn out to be a prisoner wrongly accused and then all of a sudden the guards are knocking at his door. In my opinion the Reluctant Hero has a nasty case of severely bad luck. The already racked nerves of the Reluctant Hero can be put totally on edge by the kick ass Destructive Hero.
Destructive Heroes can be seen carrying large guns, gigantic swords, huge double-bladed axe, humongous war hammer, or some other type of weapon of mass destruction. Reckless, careless, and hotheaded can sum up the persona of a Destructive Hero. He is likely to blow everything up first then, blow it up again for good measure. Loving a challenge, he would probably jump head first into a nest of monsters yelling curses and obscenities. Most Destructive Heroes think highly of their team. They have big hearts and are willing to help out anyway they can. I wouldn't want to be a villain that hurt a Destructive Hero's friend. His anger would overcome, and then it would be Hell to pay for the villain. The rest of the party is constantly telling the Destructive Hero to calm down, so he won't hurt himself or others. A Destructive Hero is always good to have on a team.
There are many different groups of heroes in role playing video games. There is the Predestined Hero who is told of what he or she must do and trains for that purpose, the Protective Hero who must guard a person with his or her life, the Out for Him Self Hero who just wants to use the rest of the party to get what their looking for, the Reluctant Hero who is not sure of what he or she must do and thinks a lot about if they should help or not, and finally, the Destructive Hero who will do what ever it takes to get the job done. Even though each one is different I've learned one thing that is true about all of them. They strive to do their best to protect the innocent from the nightmares of evil. This is why they are called Heroes.
