Historical Villain Whitewashing Game

#1

Post by Dudeacus97 » Mon Nov 19, 2012 1:27 pm

This is a game I invented once when I was bored and viewed the "Worse than it sounds" page on TV Tropes. One person gives an extremely whitewashed description of a historical villain and everybody else has to guess. If you get it right, you get to post a new one.

This is supposed to be a joke, not serious. Also, when you're picking people, make sure it's somebody that most people agree is an awful person. This isn't the philosophy forum. If you're a nihilist I would advise skipping this entire game.

Here it goes:
This valiant prince with a troubled childhood was determined to keep Muslim invaders out of his land, which is now in modern day Bulgaria and Romania. He would go to any cost to protect his people from invaders and wished to purge his nation of all criminals. He is especially famous for having lunch with his prisoners before they would die. For his actions, he inspired one of the greatest literary characters of the 19th century and is still seen as a hero in his home country today!

Correct!

Vlad the Impaler was a Wallachian prince who has been estimated to have killed more than 100,000 people via impalement. He would surround his castle with people impaled on giant spikes and would eat lunch in the middle of them, dipping his bread in their blood. His cruelty inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula.

Ok, my turn.

Mine is a little more difficult. He was originally a colonial military officer who led a mining expedition. He soon became a traitor against all of humanity. His motives for turning against them aren't known for sure. Some say it was greed. Others say it was to save his own people from annihilation at the hands of the alien leader.

If anyone can correctly guess who this is, you are very good. ;)

Sounds kind of like Dr. Breen from the game Half-Life 2 :P

Actually, I may have mislead. He is not a historical character. He is fictional. If the game only includes historical villains, then just ignore my villain. :lol:

And one more hint. Those of the younger generation may not know my villain. He was quite popular in the late 1970's.

I'm afraid even if I post his picture, most people here wouldn't guess who he is.

I have no idea what the villain could be, but could we stick to real people? We could do a seperate one for fictional characters.

This game is normally done with a group of people in person, so imagine this in a very cheery, positive tone to do the game justice:
This charismatic Indochinese leader and former teacher of French literature started a political movement for political and social change in his country. Some of the many goals of this movement included getting people in the cities to live quieter lives in the countryside, academic equality, and attrition of the common farmer. He preferred to avoid using firearms to deal with his enemies and would use simpler means instead. His work created one of his country's most famous landmarks, a collection of the remains of people whose lives he touched.
