101 Player Character Quirks

        By: SamVDW

Character quirks can be little exercises in roleplaying that make things fun for the player. They can also have major game implications if the character is faced with a dilemma where two of their values come in conflict. Here are 101 player character quirks that can be used in many different types of settings. These quirks vary from small quirks (small effect on game play) to big quirks (potentially large effect on game play).

Swamps 101

        By: Silveressa

The classic swamp, filled with a purveying dampness and faint mist. Clouds of buzzing biting insects drift over vast expanses of soggy marsh and brackish water. Lone trees tilt towards the sky, struggling against the purveying rot.

Swamplands are a unique environment and therefore offer you unique game play options.

This article will give you ideas on how to bring your swamps to life and make the most of these interesting settings - regardless of how powerful the PCs are.

30 Chinese Archaic Names

        By: Moonlake

An companion to my 101 Chinese Modern Names sub, but for an ancient setting. This is an etymology centred piece with more extended entries compared to the earlier one which is in list form. Spelling is based on Mandarin unless otherwise indicated (the other variation offered is Cantonese which is easier to pronounce given that it is spelt from the English alphabet, at least the HK version that I’m using, rather than the Chinese pinyin)

Attack on Titan/Tales of Symphonia Campaign Hybrid

        By: SplatterBox

People live inside a series of walls. Outside the walls, there are Titans (giants, unless you actually want to use the Titan, which are fetching powerful). There's a spell that needs breaking to return everything to normal size. That can only be done by collecting the elemental devil arms. Hot dang.

Primal Essence, Primals, and the Creation of the Realms

        By: Arracor

An origin story for the main setting I build in. There are aspects missing, and certain things need proper names. In addition, there are related topics I'll write about in other, related submissions, and the whole setting has a 'phase 2' (or sequel setting) in a hypothetical future where certain, massively world-changing events take place. I'll list related submissions again at the bottom, as actual links.

Halimath the Wanderer

        By: Tusserk

"Would you prefer I run my sword through your spine and leave you laying here for the wolves to gnaw upon or to just burn you alive with my magic? I would prefer to collect what I am after without the use of violence, but make no mistake I will kill you to remove this trinket from the hands of humanity."

The Totem of Nahual
