Here's a good start to our list, based on a very thorough list provided by Sir Shamrock. I know this can't contain everything, I haven't even begun on fan characters. But I just got Animal Crossing in the mail and frankly I'm starting it tonight.

I'll work more on this when I get a chance. But for anyone interested, the easiest way to help is to link to games, post cards/characters of yours, anything that leads to more characters below. I'm mostly interested in characters from fan boardgames, mystery series, forum games, what-have-you. Purely conceptualized characters are fun, but not quite as remembered.

I’ll gladly contribute my Miss Dove and Mr Clay.

They are the only originals of mine that use a unique enough surname. We dont need every fan-made Silver and Gold that exists. My Herr Gold and Nurse Silver, while major characters in my story, arent much more than Mr Gold and Mrs Silver/Nurse White from the patent.

For those unfamiliar with my characters and stories, Dove is the Peacock rival; she’s the fiancee to Dr Black and suspect in his murder. Clay is a tennis coach inspired off Clay from 13 Dead End Drive; he is Scarlet’s lover; he is having an affair with Peacock.

(And speaking of my story, it is coming together perfectly behind the scenes. More details later but teaser: the writing/creative/illustration team for this project has now reached 4 people. 3 clue fans 1 new to our universe.)

A character for Clue: Murder at Tudor Close (My Clue-verse).

Miss Heather Black, the daughter of Dr. Hugh Black & Mrs. Rose Black and the estranged cousin of Mr. John Boddy & Dorothy Rose Boddy (Madame Rose).
She doubles as a SUSPECT & VICTIM.
Her overall backstory is this:
Heather Black is/was spoiled rotten by her father, Dr. Hugh Black, and grew up to be an selfish, entitled woman. She was the original heir to Tudor Close and the Black Family Fortune, but was replaced by her more generous, and kind-hearted cousin John Boddy. Boddy had evicted her from Tudor Close after numerous tantrums. Recently, for his 30th birthday, Mr. Boddy invited Heather back to Tudor Close to make amends. Of course, Heather was still the same selfish woman Boddy grew up with.

SUSPECT: Heather still fells she’s still entitled to the Black Estate. Did she kill her own cousin for it?

VICTIM (Boddy lives): Heather Black has been blackmailing many of Boddy’s friends for quite some time now. She meets her maker at Tudor Close, after one of victims had enough.

Wonderful to hear, Cacums. And thank you for letting me post them!

I'm planning to post a bunch from the board games here - Will You Survive, Murders Mystery and Mayhem, all that goodness. But I'm also interested in the weird ones that have fallen through the cracks. One-offs from forum games. Those are just as, and sometimes more, interesting to me

I thought I might offer some corrections on some of the colours:

Azure isn't cyan. Even in its various shades, it's a vivid blue:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shades_of_azure

Meadow-Brook I think would be right to fall closer to cyan in the teal range, though green is accurate overall for them.


Peach would definitely fall under orange (pastel orange) rather than brown, unless you're implying she's a mouldy peach.


Certainly, I'm not offering these suggestions out of my personal preferences of how the colours should look -it's just a general truth about the colours themselves.



Other than those notes, it's a nice developing list. Have you looked into some of the crazier names from the Polish edition?

Also, I'd be happy to pitch my picks of custom characters - Ms. Mango (orange), Mr. Tan (brown), Captain Seafoam (cyan or green, it's a light grey-green tone, you're pick), and Mother Drab (brown).

Great start! Agree with CluedoKid that some of the colours might need a bit of altering, and also I would suggest adding the original names for the international characters as well as English translations - some of them you have as the original names (eg Donna Blanco), but others are translated (Dr White rather than Dr Blanco). It would be handy to have both, IMO.

Also, when has Sir Peach been a victim? He was a suspect in the Mobil Mystery game with Dr. Prussian and Lady Oakwood.

A suggestions about order of the grouping: use the order of the rainbow / spectrum to list the various colors.
The traditional order would be
* red
* orange
* yellow
* green
* blue
* indigo
* violet


For the other colors you wish to make a group of, insert that group between the two colors it seems to be a combination of. You seem to have used the reverse of that in the beginning, but then at the end there are some that seem a bit more random. For White and Black, perhaps White should be closest to the start of the spectrum and Black at the very end? (Or with your order, Black before Purple and White at the very end?)
Brown should probably be between the Red and the Orange characters, with Pink between Red and White.

"Traditional order" seems to be relative is the problem here. I grew up reading the colors of the rainbow from bottom-to-top, not top-to-bottom. Unless there's more support for this, I'm going to leave it as is for now.

The ending isn't as random. My problem was, if white was at one end and black at the other, where would be the best place to put greys? I wanted neutrals bunched together intentionally. That said, I should move brown to near orange, I'll get that done momentarily.

I'll get these edited real quicklike. I always assumed she was meadow+brook - green+cyan. The problem with peach is that it can refer to a bit of a spread of colors, but I can certainly move her.
Cluedokid wrote:Also, when has Sir Peach been a victim?
Fun fact, Sir Peach went out of use after he went mouldy.
I definitely didn't copy-paste a basic template for all the characters and failed to edit all the details for Sir Peach. Nope. :^)

Lovely, thank you, I was excited to put them in!! I'll probably pick the colors from their MM&M cards : D
I hope this isn't rude, but you had a number of others I liked in the Last Noel, that forum game from... god, that was nine years ago. Would you be alright with including the customer characters you made for that as well? (Burgundy, Bronze, Navy, Olivia, Liverwurst)

I'll see what I can do for fitting in both, I'm a bit pressed for time before work here. It would certainly be a more interesting list :0

I have a shoebox of color pencils, maybe there could some interesting color names in there.
The box is for Size 10 (US) shoes FYI.

Whoops! Edited it.

And I want to thank you all for the feedback. I kind of made the initial list in a bit of a rush, I know it’s going to be bumpy for a minute here. I’ll do what I can to keep the list up-to-date and as accurate as possible ✌️

Sure you're welcome to include them. Sir Gold, Countess Silver and Baron Bronze as well as Master Navy and Aunt Burgundy are all in the Last Noel and the new game. I was considering including Granny Liverwurst too, but nixed her for Madame Puce. Bronze was also featured in Depboy's fanfiction.

I don’t know if this is double handling or not but maybe we should create/revive a thread for fan characters, where people can list and describe their characters which can then be ported over to the repository - I was thinking along the lines that we could have more discussion on fan characters than we might be able to in this thread.

Yep that was what I was thinking - there has no doubt been one in the past but it might be worthwhile to create a new one, to keep everything consistent
