Favourite MARDEK character? (EDIT)

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf
Categories: MARDEK
As I revise MARDEK's story and characters, I can't help but wonder constantly which of the characters people care about the most... Especially when I wonder things like "hey, what if this character was killed off here?!" Surely that wouldn't be appreciated if it was a character that people liked!!1 (And no, I'm not killing off characters casually.)

Anyway, I've started a poll about this here: ∞ LINK ∞

I used an external site rather than this site's poll feature because that allows more answers, and it allows non-members to vote too. I'm rather curious to see what the results will be!

EDIT: Due to complaints, I've replaced the poll with a different one from a different provider.

Well i selected mardek because of rohoph because he is my favourite character, he is a alien who is different from his race and wasn't affected by the crystal, left everyone close to him, is a healer,and is pretty strong.

i personally think that you outta just keep all the same characters, and add a few new characters. If Mereaedor is cut, so help me god, i will cry.

I was really surprised by this poll, I always thought that Mereaedor was a lot more popular, but seeing him at a dismal 5% was... sad...

He's an amazing inventor (Literally building on of the other characters (Or 4, depending on how you look at it), with an amazing moveset. Just jam a mirrilixir in the potion sprayer and win the battle. But I always thought he was a really likable character who was practically Tesla.

With 14 characters, it seems a bit rough to only be able to pick one - it would be more interesting to be able to vote for say four or something, I think. With such a big cast it's possible to like more than one character! I voted for Vehrn, but I regret not being able to vote for Emela and Gloria as well.

I'm missing the option of whichever one kicks the bucket.
Deliverance for best Marduk.

I enjoyed leveling Sslen'ck myself because he was strange at first talking like a lizard and that kinda stuck on me plus he is the only character with a giant battle axe to swing an he knows it.

I also enjoyed playing Legion and solar who I found the most useful of the group for powerful attacks (Legion) and decent healing/somedmg(Solar),

I am surprised Steele is on the list though because we only control Steele for a minute or so he is very aggressive and I we could control him for a time that is not limited to 1 battle I wouldn't mind trying that.

I am also surprised Mardek is on there... Mardek the main Character(as I see it or his body sharing partner Rudolf could be). Would you kill him off?

Finally I would like to ask for the return of Deugan. It was a noble deed he did when he did what he did at the end of 2. I know from what I read in that part of the Encyclopedia I think he may of survived but I didn't read 2 or 3 of the notes because I didn't find them and my 84 hour save reset last year...

Meraeador, while difficult to spell, is my personal choice.
His skills and aspirations are unique, at least in game.
He's been sort of an outcast among the townspeople.
He's a genius. He built a robot. He builds his own weapons.
He even stutters. He was Mardek and Duegan's childhood... Neighbor?
He's kindred, genuinely intelligent.
What's not to like?

I feel that he'd be one of the harder losses for Mardek, as he'd known him so long. And then there was that spark of 'more-than-friendship' between him and Gloria.

I enjoyed Steele's over the top personality and hatred for everything. He's probably better off as that bumbling antagonistc miniboss, but I did enjoy the Mardek's version of a Monk for that brief moment in part 2.

I personally enjoy all of the characters, so i just focused on "playstyle"/class when choosing.

I'm sorry for loving everything

I actually hoped for Steelee to kinda just slightly improve his attitude and join the protagonist team permanently. Kinda "Dark is not Evil" vibes. He could still be somewhat brutish and annoying, but for me it wasn't anywhere near the levels it achieved for others.

I kinda appreciated that at first he directed his aggression at the people it should be directed at, the people who deserved it - I mean, while he didn't have the most noble of intentions, we saw him being cruel to who? The bandits? You know, I wouldn't call it a bad thing in itself.

I suppose playing as him also got me somewhat attached, brief as it was. Chapter 3 kinda flandrelized his character though.

Although he wouldn't be the only one... I didn't exactly like how forward Elwyen was in that chapter... Otherwise she was kinda cute, but when she made that stupid face and said those stupid things... Ugh.

It was a tough choice among the female chars (-Sharla +Solaar).

Elwyen: most powerful
Solaar: most cute
Gloria: most mature (she and Zach were the only ones that felt like adults)

But in the end, I just plain like Emela the most.

I haven't played Mardek in such a long time that I've forgotten who the characters are! But I would appreciate a shorter, episodic re-release type of thing. Mardek 3 was so huge that I was intimidated (since I don't usually play long RPG games)!

I don't think people would be *angry* if a loveable character was killed off. They'd just be really sad! And sometimes being really sad makes the player/reader get more invested!
