Well howdy all, it's been a while hasn't it? But fear not, I've a new MOC for ye! In the Beyond Botana RPG, our heroes have just come up against this fearsome brute... the Waiting One!
About this creation
“Halt! By King Alphinaud’s decree, none may enter Elysium. Turn back: this is a fight you do not want, and will not win…!”
-The Waiting One, Beyond Botana RPG (Chapter 6: Old Elysium)

The Waiting One:
The Waiting One was an Elysian gatekeeper who defended the city of Old Elysium; he was ridiculously large and wore ornate, golden laced armour. In later life he was infected by a disease known as a Tar, but through willpower alone he retained his sense of duty, despite the loss of his sanity. Though dim witted, the Waiting One was extremely passionate, resilient, loyal, staggeringly strong and deeply unhappy.

The Waiting One was born immensely large and grew to be even larger; it was joked in Elysium that he sacrificed brain space for muscle power, for he was a stupid child. His brute strength did nothing to stop others from bullying him, as he was an easy target for teasing and fight picking. This continued into adulthood, where he was mocked for his emotionality and incompetence as an Elysian knight; it was a favourite pastime of his peers to frustrate him to the point of open sobbing. At one point, he grew far too big to be housed in any building in the city, and therefore had to be removed.

Instead of exile however, King Alphinaud chose to station him outside Elysium as a Gatekeeper, framing it as a promotion and awarding him tailor-made, golden laced armour; it was the happiest moment of his life. Passionately swearing to obey Alphinaud to the end of time, he defended the city from all manner of enemies, such as Hyrvic troops, the Celtivorians, the Comers, the Makuta and many others. His skill began to improve over time, though his strength proved to be his greatest asset, for few could lay a dent in him, while a single blow from his broadsword could crush most into paste.

When the virus known as the Tar broke out, the Waiting One was there to defend his city from the wandering zombies. At one point however, he stepped in a puddle of liquid tar, the blood of a fallen enemy, and soon became infected. As Elysium fell, his body turned Tar-Clogged, though unlike most other victims of the Tar, he retained his consciousness and remembered his duty, continuing to fight for his king. Deep down, he knew that if he ever let down his guard, the infection would take over and he would become nothing more than a Tar-Clogged husk; he thus clung to his duty, despite the Empire’s dissolution.

Eventually the Tar took its toll and the Waiting One’s mind eroded; he convinced himself that Elysium was still standing and Alphinaud was alive and well. He believed he was fighting against Makuta Sur’Kosh and his minions, and addressed all who approached as such. It was not long before a band of Agori, aided by an Elysian named Bokeh, approached the city; they tried to reason with the Waiting One, but he was already too deluded to listen, and battle was joined. He fought long and hard, but a blow struck by Agori Tuhinga caused him to finally succumb to the Tar, mutating into little more than a Tar-Clogged beast.

The mindless husk of the Waiting One, though still powerful, was easily slain; it was Pontel Gunn who delivered the killing blow, obtaining the giant's sword as a trophy and leaving him as little more than a memory.


-and here he is! I quite enjoyed making this one actually, it was a lot of fun to see it all come together in the end.

The back.

The Waiting One greets all new foes in this fashion; stood upright, sword planted into the earth with both hands of the hilt; both polite and intimidating.

Speaking of his sword, may I present the Waiting Great-sword: though blunt, the sheer weight of it is enough to break flesh upon contact, when wielded correctly of course-

-and boy, he knows how to wield it!





Soon enough, he will buckle under the weight of the Tar- and he will be naught but beast!



Height comparison with a standard Agori build. As you can see, this guy will be a severe challenge for our heroes!

He's even taller than Raxonax!

Sending forth Tar minions.

Side by side with the Tar Clogged Rider, the RPG's first boss.

Facing off against my own character for the RPG, Old Merimies.

-and that's all, folks! Looking forward to facing him with you all!

Never too late to join the Beyond Botana RPG!
