Ninjas are cool.
Pirates are cool.
Zombies are cool.
Robots are cool.

What do you get when you combine all that cool-ness into a single entity? You get pure, unadulterated AWESOME.

This is the Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot (or NPZR for short), as envisioned and drawn by myself. Although originating from Kingdom of Loathing, the online browser-based pseudo-MMORPG with art even crappier than mine, this picture was actually drawn as a visual aid when I decided to include the NPZR as a boss enemy in a tabletop RP campaign a while back. I even bothered to color this one, although it's nothing fancy - just the auto-fill tool and some cleanup of lines to get rid of white spots. As I've said before, I'm not a very good artist, so please excuse the unsteady lines and inconsistent proportions. -_-

Some notes:

--The symbol on the hat is a variation on the good ol' Jolly Roger skull and crossbones - a skull (zombie) with an antenna (robot) and a pair of crossed swords, cutlass (pirate) and katana (ninja).

--In terms of weapons, the NPZR is armed with a launchable/retractable chain hook on his left arm, and wields a vibroblade cutanna (cutlass/kanata hybrid) in his right hand. Mounted on his shoulders are the only guns awesome enough for an NPZR to wield - a shuriken-firing minigun and an RPC (rocket-propelled chainsaw) launcher.

--Monkey Island fans will probably find parts of this pic familiar - the 'pirate' parts of the design are heavily inspired by series villian LeChuck, particularly the coat, hat, and mouth. I was originally going to give him a beard too, but I didn't want to obscure the view of his ninja tunic.


Sadly, as a boss, he wasn't up to snuff - one of the PCs I was GMing for sneakily pulled an EMP weapon on him, which rightly screwed him over thanks to his robot parts. He didn't last long after that. :(

Version 2.0 will be EMP-shielded... >:]



Side Note: While I don't want anyone messing with my original picture here, if anyone wants to use my design for their own depictions of the NPZR, feel free. :)


Side Note #2: Look me up on KOL if you like - my player name there is OrcBunny (named after an old RP buddy and dear friend of mine - if you're reading this, you know who you are). I haven't played KoL in ages, although I'm planning to get back into the game soon.
