recently I come to realise that I am more trickster than I thought I was …memories surfaced up…I have seen many trickster qualities in my younger years…over the years，I have developed some interesting attributes…among all of them ，I will say ，I really connect with the magician and lover/seducer archetypal facets…I really miss that trickster part…and want to bring back that mischievous wittiness….hopefully ，soon we will have a main store title tackle on that……now If I want to build a custom….what might be the suitable choices ？
Stark and WB came first to my mind.
First off, awesome question this is my favorite archetype and the one I resonate with and also seek to embody…
primal, WB, daredevil, stark(maybe…i have found that some of the entrepreneur/corporate success subs give a level of responsibility and strive to manage appearances that go against the trickster archetype at times…)
PCC (a great one for this archetype…you will read people with ease, know how to tease them the best and know exactly how to be a trickster without becoming a fool)
ROS can be good if being a trickster is really in your spirit…running that sub made me double down on the sex/social subs because wealth just isn’t as important to me as i thought it was…
khan could be good as well…
then just get modules to do with having fun, being social and understanding people while remaining a mystery yourself.
I think this is the first one you should look at.
I have a little bit hard time imagining Khan as a trickster.
nouveau r.i.c.h fits in some ways.
Yeah I would too but during my wanted-khan-commander custom era I was much more mischievous life of the party then I was dominant warlord so as always I think conscious guidance can help. Khan helped me break social norms.
Glad to hear, wanna run Khan myself and have some kind of trickster personality
well ，I did enjoy my ride with Stark years ago，but the overall goals might not suitable with my current position….I love the wittiness part though…
also WB seems to bring out something dark and aggressive ，which I like it to be honest ，I don’t know…maybe pair with some modules in a custom will work…
Primal is pretty good，but too nonchalant…I like the vibe and the wildness it brings…but currently，I want to work on my creative projects more，may need a little push
WB is good though，but daredevil is not my type…I dont have the energy and intention to socialize a lot at the moment…I just want to focus on my own thing…
PCC seems really good，I might pair it with beyond limitless and WB in a custom…but the thing is，that doesn’t feel like a trickster….
and thank you guys…

Isn’t the essence of the trickster archetype creating disruptive social change? You kind of have to be social at some point to truly embody the archetype.
Also to me, no one understands human nature and the laws of power better then a trickster. Mischief, trickery, cunningness, misdirection…all part of the lovable rogue that is the trickster. PCC makes you a master of this.
Also in a custom the module Rogue is a must have.
I think the New Emperor would fit nicely in with the trickster archetype. Resilience and confidence in your self and your own approach to things is absolutely necessary to be a trickster. Look at the big archetypal trickster characters from mythology, they are so confident and sure of their frame that they care not for the disapproval of some of the most respected and feared figures in their myths.
haven’t used the new one ，but I had emperor in my previous custom and ran it for eight months ，yeah，it is powerful and strong…but too serious …too deadpan
I think something like Emperor has a big focus on empire building and material success. Those things aren’t high on the list of priority for the trickster. Plus, Emperor doesn’t give me that playful “doesn’t take anything too seriously” vibe I get from all tricksters.
New Emp’s focus on resilience and going your own way combined with the flexibility of ZP make it feel way more malleable to how you want to express the scripts. At least in this first week of listening to it I’ve done.
It can all be focused internally, building an internal empire of understanding, capability and realizing because of your inherent “emperor-ness” you can go about whatever you want, however you want. Or at least that’s my personal use of it in my stack.
I am intrigued by your experience. Was not a Wanted + Khan + Commander too dense? Did you have also other titles in your stack?
And from your experience what titles did you like the most?
Daredevil + RM (for self expression)
Those were three cores in a custom…and no the custom wasn’t dense. Best custom I have ever run…copied it from @friday…
I stacked it with Libertine mostly.
Would you mind sharing the whole custom?
