Developing PC's


Advice for players on different ways of fleshing out and developing the Player Characters.

Fleshing out your character with even a basic background and personality will make for a much more rounded and realistic persona.

We as individuals are the sum of all our parts, so if you dont know what your characters’ parts are how can you be consistent. Much of what I have discussed should be noted down for your character so that it will not be forgotten. The most important list is probably your moral code. If you have no moral code you can do whatever you want, but it makes you no better than the beasts of the forest. Dont forget that morals, ambitions and personality can and should change throughout your character’s life.

Always remember that the most important aspect to roleplaying is enjoyment. If youre not going to enjoy playing a certain type of character, then dont do it. Youll just make life miserable for all involved.

This codex is still under construction, if you wish to add to it, go ahead. You are more than welcome to do so. For a clean looking codex start the submission title with: PC’s- and follow up with the topic.

A good idea for a Codex. I expect there are several Moonhunter posts which would be appropriate for this codex as well.

This looks like the start of a nice collection. I suggest you dig into the depths of the archives, and you will find a couple of fitting submissions. One I can suggest already are Character Secrets, another way to develop a PC beyond the basics.

A small group of men stares intensely at something. Coming nearer, you see puppies, obviously still young, as they are small and only learn to walk. Cute as they are, the men look serious and exchange a comment here and there, making their mother nervous. But one man keeps her somewhat calm, while looking with others on the little ones.

The puppies are a completely new dog breed. The breeder hopes for better characteristics, the other men are mostly hunters and other dog-fanciers, that were called or came from own interest. If all looks well, they will have business. But now, they are just watching.
