What fictional character would best fit in your group? Why?
Short Answer: Baron Munchausen.
Long Answer: This was an especially tricky question. Not because there are so many fictional characters to choose from, but because I have to pick one for a group I don’t currently have. After a little deliberation, I decided to choose a character who would be entertaining no matter what they were playing. I ended up settling on the world’s greatest storyteller: Baron Munchausen. I know the fictional character’s creator based him on a real person who was famous for telling tall tales, but I suspect the real Münchhausen never tried convincing anyone he’d travelled to the Moon.
You’d think that someone like the Baron might be more of a detriment at the table, bending the action to make himself the star of every scene. I suspect it would be disconcerting at first, but after a while the table would get into a rhythm. We might even end up allowing the Baron to spin his tales while we work behind the scenes to actually get things done.
For extra entertainment, we could have him play the upcoming Baron Munchausen RPG from Fantasy Flight Games.
