Quotable Quotes: Character Layout Monkey

“Anything your character is likely to say, or has, in the course of game play said on at least one occasion, or is otherwise noted as a character’s ‘catch phrase,’ or ‘signature phrase,’ is known as a quote, ans should be placed in the quotes section between quotation marks.”



The Character Layout Monkey was originally born in the world of Monster Hunter International, as a means of showing the players how to set up their character sheets in Obsidian Portal. The early times were hard, as the players in that particular game were just getting used to OP.

The Character Layout Monkey has sense changed his image a bit, and migrated over to Romance of the Four Elements. He does the same job, but now obtained something like a sense of humor, (at least as far as a chimpanzee can get with that!)
