Galaxy Programmer by SoundwarpSG-1 Galaxy Programmer by SoundwarpSG-1
Hello there everybody! this is my first submission to deviantart.

I hope to use this for the class act contest [link] from Seventh Sanctum, of course, I'm hitting the border line for submission (which happens to me a lot unfortunately)
Anyway, I used the Scifi Class generator and got 'Galaxy Programmer'. Basicly, he is connected to every computer in the galaxy but he can't even leave his room for security reasons.
-------------------
Character Info: Uniting an entire galaxy is almost impossible; the amount of cultures that must be merged (or eradicated) is mind-boggling. Keeping a united galaxy running is even harder, and that is the job of the Galaxy Programmer. Galaxy Programmers are selected at birth to be trained for their role, and upon the death of the current Programmer, one of them assumes his place. After that, the new Programmer never sees the outside world again. He is locked in to the master control room, and constantly guarded. From there he is connected to every computer in the galaxy, and uses his talents to ensure everything runs smoothly. Whether he is integrating new planets into the system, fighting off viruses, or coordinating fleets for extragalactic war no job is to hard for a galaxy programmer.
-------------------

I don't think a Galaxy Programmer would be that fun to play in a RPG (of course I've never played one so I could be wrong). However, it might work if one were playing is an escaped Galaxy Programmer. Basically, the character would have high intelligence and electronics skills, but almost nonexistent charisma or strength.

This kinda reminds me of a ' faction leader' sort of character from games like Alpha Centauri.
I like the numerous background details, like the posters, his to-do list, the calendar with the alien pin-up girls, the space-oriented toys on the shelf, and the pizza slice and empty soda can at the chair.

Being someone like that must be one hell of a job. :nod:

Yeah, being a Galaxy Programmer definitely isn't the easiest of careers. I'm glad you liked the background details, they were the funnest part of the drawing to do. Thanks for the comment!

Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords by Stardock was a cheap game but in my opinion a much better game then the graphics demanding Sword of the Stars a Kerberos Productions Inc. game with both 4X PC games. Although both skip on ground combat a lot. Sword of the Stars made me feel just like a Galaxy Programmer. Fun games none-the-less.

Wow. He's like... the ultimate nerd of all nerds. Every other nerd in the galaxy should make a pilgrimage to the planet where he is and pay homage to his super nerddom.

LOL Now I wish I had given him a 'galaxy's biggest nerd' coffee mug :D

Ha, no kidding... wouldn't be out of place. When did he ever find time to put all that stuff up, anyway?

Umm... he's really good at multi-tasking? That, or he let the galaxy slip into chaos for awhile to put up a poster...
