Swastikas generally go in a clockwise direction. The sort that's associated with the Nazi party do anyway.
I think when they're in an anticlockwise direction, the meaning changes?
well i don't think most people know that
What doesn't change is that it's dumb as fuck to knowingly use one as your character's symbol.
vvv yes i put in 'knowingly' because i didn't want to yell at you but at the guy two posts above me

Okay, let's get something straight. Unless you're the Dalai Lama or a Navajo craftsman, people probably aren't going to accept BUT IT ISN'T A NAZI SWASTIKA as an excuse.
Excuse me for being queer and PoC and being uncomfortable with swastika-fantrolls?
pesterChum: echoMesmer (in-character)
I didn't do it knowingly, it was a complete accident
I didn't mean to offend, I was just pointing out that it was reversed. I can see why you would be offended, considering the fact that the original symbolism of the swastika has fallen out of use.
But Potatao has deleted the picture, so there's no use arguing about it anymore!
Edit of mine with changed handle and other stuff.
>Be the socially awkward troll.
Your name is Gortum Puysks.
You are a rather shy troll, only growing up with a few friends. You were a constant target for bullies as a youth, and the experience still lingers. You are a bit socially awkward, but are aware of this, so you usually try to avoid as much contact with other trolls as possible, lest you subject them to your awkwardness. You are very kind, however, you value all life regardless of how many spitballs said life form could have spit at you.
You are a middle-class troll. You have a comfortable home, nothing fancy. You view the lower classes as equals to you, in a way. You often pay visits to the elderly in the slums, bringing food and performing
You love performing. Ever since you were a grub you developed a taste for the theater. You have appeared in various musical productions such as Pupa Pan and Beauty and the Horsaroni. Whenever you are onstage, you feel like you mean something, like you are an amazing person and you can change the world. But of course it is a fleeting feeling. You are a useless waste of carbon (Note: You are humble. You are actually a Broadway-worthy performer but refuse to believe it.)
Along with the arts you have a variety of other interests. You enjoy ACADEMICS, and often spend your time doing extra credit work for various projects. You like to play VIDEO GAMES, as long as they don't have blood or extreme weaponry. You are an amateur CHALK ARTIST, but can't draw for shit. Your desk is littered with folded-up papers with IDEAS that occur to you, only to be realized later as incredibly stupid. You also have an affinity for THE NUMBER 2, and this is implemented into most of your life.
Most people who bullied you in the past now view you as little more than an annoyance, and do not even want to take the time to pick on you. However, your friends (of which are far and few) see you as a wonderful, caring person. Whenever they feel sad or confused, a nice chat with you usually makes them feel better. Any attempted contact with people who aren't your friends is strictly avoided (Again, being humble, your ridiculously high but rarely used CHARISMA would solve this problem in a flash, but you are simply too much of a coward.)
You don't have much of a fashion sense. You just throw on whatever. The symbol on your shirt is one you crafted yourself. It doesn't really mean anything, just a few scribbles.
Stature-wise you are not much to look at. You are not fat or out of shape, but you are no sports star. You are insignificantly below average. You eat healthy, but are too occupied with your lifestyle that you never seem to find the correct time to start a daily exercise regimen.
Combat-wise, however, is quite different. With your significant AGILITY score, you are adept at dodging enemy attacks. Doing damage straight out is not your specialty, but you can pinpoint exactly when the opponent will be most vulnerable and strike while ducking out of the way. You play a lot of BOXING GAMES.
You hope someday to be important.

Here is one of my first trolls! I might have to work on some aspects of his character though.
> Be the killjoy.
I æm not æ killjoy. I merely hæve more common sense thæn most of my compænions.
> Be the enlightened troll.
In thæt, you ære correct.
Your name is REPENI PALOMI and you know the MEANING OF LIFE, which happens to be nothing. Nada, zip, diddly-squat. As a result, you have attained an INDIFFERENT AND ALOOF ATTITUDE which prevents you from attaining a comfortable social life. Despite this, a group of certain trolls who call themselves your "friends" simply won't leave you alone. It's quite annoying but you HUMOR THEM ANYWAY.
As an ENLIGHTENED TROLL you don't have many hobbies. You spend most of your time in your hive, secretly partaking in GRIMDARK ARTS. Having only online friends spares you from any prying eyes, which is quite nice. You practice often on the HOOFBEASTS wandering about your hive. As a result you have... shall we say... DEFORMED MONSTERS creeping about your front yard. But you don't mind.
What you do mind, however, is the fact that people constantly run to you FOR ADVICE. You have absolutely no clue why, seeing how you've stated repeatedly that you'd rather be READING ONE OF YOUR DARK AND MYSTERIOUS TOMES instead of catering to their silly, insignificant needs. None of them seem to get the message yet.
When not engaged in magic or in advising others, you enjoy EXCAVATING RUINS for ancient runes to improve your spellcraft and knowledge of long-lost cultures.
Your trolltag is lonelyForger and You speæk ræther crypticælly.
This... this is my first fantroll. ^_^;;
> Be the haughty armchair psychologist troll.
Very well, if you insist.
Your name is MARTAX LLIGOR but you tell people to call you TAXI, a fact that would surely amuse any theoretical aliens who used the word to mean a method of transportation.
You would however be unconcerned with such a thing. You are UNCONCERNED with most things, and many trolls are aggravated by their inability to RILE YOU UP. Which isn’t to say that you don’t appreciate a good riling, but you have found most riles to be so far unimpressive.
Perhaps this nature is what has drawn you towards your hobby of TROLL PSYCHOLOGY. When you are older you would like to join the ranks of the feared DOCTORMENTERS whose job it is to perform ruthless psychological examinations to cull unfit trolls. You believe that the greatest weapon of all is to KNOW YOUR ENEMY and use it to mock them mercilessly. However, you also carry the second greatest weapon in your STRIFE SYLLABUS: AXEKIND.
Your other hobby is THIEVERY, which you practice as much as you can get away with. You typically only steal from those lower of the hemospectrum than you; you wouldn’t want to be seen as uncouth.
Your LUSUS is very much a supporter of your theft habit. She is a giant MAGCORVID and you bring her SHINY THINGS to keep her from pecking your eyes out. Sometimes she lets you RIDE ON HER BACK on flights across Alternia.
Your greatest joy in life is proving yourself to be superior to others, so it is a source of great distress to you that you have not yet found someone with whom you can MATCH WITS with properly. Though many have found you a FINE AUSPSTICE you are beginning to grow a bit afraid that you will be culled due to inability to fill your other quadrants.
Your trolltag is typifiedPsychiatrix and yov do yovr best to present ^n intelligent, witty ^nd <h^rming m^nner.

Fan troll numero dos
> Be the snooty b- witch.
Your name is ROMMEA VELENO. You have a passion for STORIES OF A TRAGIC NATURE. These stories, while making you quite DEPRESSED, also entertain you. They are sometimes about unfortunate LOW BLOODED TROLLS that you, being a HIGH BLOOD, are very much superior to. You usually prefer not to make contact with these INFERIOR BEINGS, but sometimes it is necessary. You do so BEGRUDGINGLY and often try to belittle the low blood as much as possible.
You also enjoy looking AESTHETICALLY PLEASING. You do your best to look good, but that isn't very hard because of you are a NATURAL BEAUTY. You have been told this MANY TIMES OVER, but it never gets tiring. Your LUSUS also tells you are beautiful, but that is her duty. She is your GUARDIAN in the form of a BIPEDAL COBRA-LIKE creature with a responsibility to make you feel safe and cheerful. How cheerful can you be, though, reading all those tragedies? Probably not very, but she does her very best to try to make you smile.
Your troll tag is toxicConsort (7200D5) and you Tend to speaketh in a manner most befitting of someone of thine place on the hemospectrum.
(also note that the dot between her eye and eyebrow is part of the brow.)

The eyes are too high and the mouth's a little low, but everything else looks pretty dang good!
ZDG, they're obviously curious what sort of monstrocity this sprite sheet is. 8| Don't be so antagonistic.
That wasn't antagonistic
i was just pointing the obvious :c
In hindsight, probably my first mistake.
It was obvious that they were curious as to what could possibly make this sprite sheet better than the one in the 3rd post.
And yep, looks good!
Thank you for all the help!
ETA: Edited it one more time to add back the collar/length of the coat from the original.

Fantroll Roll Call
I think that you should have left the collar as is, personally, and then if you ever make a talk sprite you could add the flared collar. The length looks fine to me.
> Enter Name.
Your name is Ventus Shadus.
And you really don't feel like going through any of this seemingly needless s***. There's a lot of things that seem meaningless to you, and a lot of things you hate going through.
Seemingly equally many are your interests. You have a penchant for watching SHOWS THAT YOU FIND INTERESTING and SURFING ONLINE. Many of your interests stem from these two things, as the people you are in contact with LIVE A LONG WAYS AWAY FROM YOU, and you never visit them because it just seems like to much effort for too little reward, which makes it seem meaningless to you. The walls of your room are plastered with posters of the various shows you watch, as well as some that look like blueprints for building things. These blueprint wallpapers change frequently, as you move from one project to another, but you don't do a whole lot of building since what you build is based off of organic technology and are more difficult to make then mechanical stuff, making many of the things you think of making seem meaningless to you being that there are only a few times that you have any immediate use for anything you think to make.
On the Hermaspectrum you are arguably one of the highest class. A finer cut, a higher breed. It's almost as if you were fillet minione and everyone else was beef jerky. Even though you are a purple blood you tend to not give a s*** and tell anyone who goes through the bowing and scraping motions due to your blood status to f*** the hell off, as you have never cared for such an arcane system.
Due to a genetic mutation you are able to extend your fingers and arms respectively up to several meters in length. You discovered this trait almost immediately after your trials and began training this ability in such a way that it could be used as a deadly weapon. However, you don't like getting other peoples blood on you, and so invented a pair of armored gauntlets with retractable blades in the fingers that you keep in your gauntletkind Strife Specibus. Your Lusus is a Dragon, and as such is often away taking care of things that Dragons take care of, including keeping itself well fed. The times that your Lusus is present it tries to teach you things befitting of your blood class. You refuse to listen to most of it since it is mostly about how all the other blood classes save those of royal blood are beneath you, and thus have led to an inordinate number of Strifes, even by standards that wouldn't be considered entirely normal.
You enjoy talking online, even though a lot of the people you talk to give you grief. It is your dream to one day become a great commander and lead all of trollkind in conquest, not for glory or any of that bullshit, but because you can, have the ability to, and because you honestly think it would be a bit of a blast.
Your chumhandle is demonicallyVaccuous [DV], and you really don't care to have any sort of quirk because you feel that such a thing is a waste of time.
Name: Ventus Shadus
Age[Sweeps]: Seven Solar Sweeps
Blood Color: Purple
Horn: Four horns, two each on the left and right side of the back of his head that go straight up with a slight forward curve. They are each six inches in length with two upper horns, and two lower horns.
Appearance: Athletic build with some muscle. Black Jeans and Black shirt with his sign on it.
Sign: A circle with a lightning bolt through the center at a 45 degree angle.
Lusus: A dragon that can fire out flames with varying degrees of heat.
Weapon: A variant of fistkind where advantage is taken of the genetic mutation that allows for the arms and fingers to stretch to considerable length. As such, gauntletkind has been seen as the most efficient weapon of choice.
This is from another forum, so I hope I'm doing it right.
