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 meeples have only two or three colors (with some exceptions of four), while the back (in some cases) and sides of the meeple have only one color (bolded in the "Colors" column). The back is usually the same as the front, although a few have no design on the back. The cottages and DAGRON meeple are exceptions, as they have different designs on the front and back. The meeples' 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.

[edit] 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 result is WAY less amphibian." Green, dark green

Meeple Archers
In the old version, 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.

In the new version, the outlines are dark green instead of black. They are drawn similarly to the old version, but with more lines, making the image clearer. The castle is filled in, and light stone brick lines are visible. Unlike most meeples, the sides are two different colors.

A few brick lines are visible in dark gray, and some thatch lines are visible on the top in light gray. The back of the meeple depicts an orange flame, although it was originally yellow. This is one of the only meeples to have a unique design on the back, due to the burninating nature of the game.

Majesty not included White, black, light blue Meeple Trogdor Drawing
This meeple is nearly identical to the basic Trogdor meeple, except it's colored as if it's drawn on notebook paper, and it’s breathing fire.

Keep doing your thing Front: Brown, dark brown, tan

Meeple Dagron/Toaster's Choice
A perfect rectangle. The front displays Strong Mad's "DAGRON", while the back shows Homsar's "Taster's Choice" (changed to "Toaster's Choice" to avoid legal issues with Nescafé).

On the "DAGRON" side, the table is brown, while the wood grain is outlined in dark brown.

On the "toaster's choice" side, the text is lowercase, instead of capitalized as it was in the original email. This side of the meeple has never been shown in any promotional material, making it an Easter egg of sorts, just as how Taster's Choice was in the original email.
