It's an awkward situation and nobody likes to admit it, but sometimes when you're making characters for a new game, you can't help but thinking to yourself "this calls for Nic Cage." The question then becomes "Which Nic Cage?" After all, Cage--like the universe itself--is infinite and ever-expanding. While we can't help you determine whether your character will be the delightfully offbeat Cage from Raising Arizona and Adaptation, the over-the-top, trying-way-to-hard wannabe badass from Con Air and Face/Off, or even the "Holy shit! When did this guy learn how to act?" Cage from movies like Leaving Las Vegas, but we can give you some random tables designed to result in some Cage-o-licious character ideas.
Since Tom Waits has a new album on the way, here's a random table of characters from his songs. No matter how you work them into your game, they're bound to add a little weirdness.Correction: As it turns out, Tom's teasers weren't for a new album announcement. They were for the video of "Hell Broke Luce" from Bad As Me . Wishful thinking on my part, I guess.--Steve
