Stock Character/ Character lists
« on: June 16, 2008, 12:20:56 PM »
This thread should be for any outside links that list a number of "stock character" or "stereotypic characters" useful in gaming.

For Example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Stock_characters

Definition: A stock character is a fictional character that relies heavily on cultural types or stereotypes for its personality, manner of speech, and other characteristics. Stock characters are instantly recognizable to members of a given culture. Because of this, a frequent device of both comedy and parody is to wildly exaggerate the expected mannerisms of stock characters.
