There Is not a actual Guide to roleplaying as a Vortigaunt, but this should help some players understand more.
A slave vortigaunt cleans random parts of the City With atleast a 05 CP watching.
The Vort must go into into extensive detail of what they clean for this class contains little to no Character on Character Roleplay. It is wise for most Cleaning Sessions to be rolled with a 1-10 addition cleaning (You must have a combined total of 100.)
Example: Vas'Yok has rolled 100
- The object is cleaned*
- Vas'yok has rolled 56
- The object is cleaned significantly better than before*
- Vas'Yok has rolled 34
- Object is cleaned*
- Vas'Yok has rolled a 0
- It looks as though he just barley brushes the cloth over the bench not doing anything*
How ever he can, not completely clean something, but the CP may tell him to finish. The Vortigaunt also has a Collar and bracelets which remove their ability to use the Vortessence, and also double as explosive devices that cannot be double rigged to be used only deactivated.
Slave Vortigaunt Speech patternsEdit
So a Slave Vortigaunt Rarley Speaks but when he does it is mostly english and complicated.
Example: Vas'Yok says: "For one to wish the complete removal and clear the particular entity, is unconceivable."(Cleaning this is going to be impossible) It is best to have a google search for Synonymes nearby. The vortigaunt will not speak with citizens unless CP is gone and even then may not speak. They will give praise to combine regularly.
A Free Vortigaunt has been freed from combine through illegal means. The Vortigaunt is always glad to be freed from slave labor and happy to help overthrow the combine in anyway. This Vortigaunt has many more experiences regarding roleplay (Compared to Slave Vort) Once Released it is wise to find a hiding place for the Vort (Like really good not a apartment or a dumpster) The Vort can Charge things and attack (if you do roll bonus it is most likely 15-25+ for fighting) useing electricity, through their first uses they must eat a bunch. They have been malnurished and used as labor workers, and have been out of touch with their Vort essense for quite a time. Which means doing something as simple as turning on a lightbuld will leave them a bit tired. (think of taking a run around a lightpost about 5 times) If they do anyting extreme (Fighting Lethal, Jumpstarting generators) they may pass out. About one day IRL is given for a great performance increase. Vortigaunts will also go into meditation at times to reconnect with their essence. (Like a booster) Healthy Mostly contraband items is all they eat.
List includes: Banana, Orange, Apple, Pineapple, Milk, Pure water, Special breens drinking water, Watermelon, and can eat Citizen suppliments and Chinese food, but thats better for the moment then long term as it is unhealthy. Vorts can combine their power to double it. They don't leave the hiding spot or are tortured, interagated, and made slaves.
Free Vortigaunt SpeechEdit
"Oh man Free Vorts have speech patterns too?" Yes, though they speak english mostly but will speak Vortigese at times. They speak in a deep voice and soft aswell. They will only speak in Vortigese to one another as it is impossable for humans to understand. They murmur Vortigese when they meditate and as a sort of curse or praise ( be careful chooseing). When talking to another Vort Use /pm to tell them what you're saying. Do not forget to speak long and complicated.Vorts are also poetic and knowledgeable.
Freeing a VortigauntEdit
COMPLICATED MAY VARY SERVER TO SERVER!!!!
To free a Vortigaunt You must remove it's Iron bomb collar( the cuffs are linked to collar and come off with it) You can use a CWU keycard a CP keycard (Both modified obviously unless 01 or higher) or you can melt or saw off the Iron (Blow torch, Water Saw, ETC) but this damages the vortigaunt and may cause handicaps or cause the bomb to go off. The location of removal is not tracked but the vort can be tracked until it is removed. Vorts use a third arm from their chest to eat. Vorts have a 1-10 addition build up of repairing or Electricuting things to efficiency.
- Vas'Yok attempts to activate keypad.
- Vas'Yok rolled a 100 of 100
- Keypad activates (or)*
- Vas'Yok Rolled a 0 of 100
- Keypad triggers an alarm.*
These kind of events are judged by the height of a roll.
Vort Name MakingEdit
Making a Vortigaunt name requires thought. It could be double worded (Vas'Yok -used in Inhumane Community by CLA | Bserk5-) Or one worded (Uraih from Half life 2 episode 2 Vortigaunt Scientist.) Please study the following Vortigese words to come up with an accurate name.
"Gallum galla gilla ma."
"companum gannennen vorgenot!"
"Chur lung gong chella gurr...
"Churr galing chur alla gung..."
"Ga la lung..."
