Meeple Character Variations

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Trogdor!! The Board Game features meeples of various Peasantry characters, and add-on meeples of the main characters. The main characters later appeared again in a Kickstarter toon, Meeple Grove. As defined by Strong Sad in said toon, a meeple is a wooden approximation of a human character in a tabletop game. The front of the meeples have only two or three colors (with some exceptions of four), while the back and sides of the meeple have only one color (bolded in the "Colors" section), except when necessary for gameplay. Their designs and are flat and blocky, and they have no outlines, except when necessary. When animated, they "shimmy in place" when they talk, and their mouths don't move.

Peasantry Characters

Image Colors Description Appearances
"Ow! My beef!" Green, dark green, black, peach Meeple Trogdor
He uses four colors, unlike most other meeples. Due to the perspective, only one eye is visible. His teeth aren't filled in, and his wingalings are dark green. Because his feet are stick-figure-like, the meeple stands up using a dark green semicircle at the bottom, which his feet are drawn on. His feet appear to be walking.

The archers appear to be connected, drawn in black on a green background, firing in opposite directions. They are stylistically drawn in very few lines, so their bodies aren't visible. The left archer's elbow is bent, while the right archer's elbow is not visible.
