30 Questions to ask your players By: Nobody

Too often when you ask somebody to describe their character, they tell you a class and a race. 'I'm a Dwarvin Paladin' tells you nothing about what makes a character interesting. You MIGHT get a backstory even. But a real character is more than that. What makes a good character interesting are the small details, and hidden motives. These are questions that make players dig a bit deeper, and create somebody truly interesting and unique.

Options for expanded character backgrounds By: Clemmensen

Below you will find 8 options to make your character more interesting and detailed. Personally I would recommend using all options at the same time, since they are easy to implement and they provide interesting story tools for your character, by creating keywords for him/her/it and rewards you for acting out the personality and background of your character.

These options can be chosen individually, but some of them work better when combined. By including them all you will see, that they compliment each other, since each option covers different aspects of your character.

Romantic Love By: axlerowes

Love and the pursuit of love makes up a huge part of a person’s life, but it is often absent from game-play. Love is also often seen as a player‘s choice, but in drama and mythology love is often something that grips a character and can inspire them or cripple them. Perhaps love should affect a character’s dice roles and perception of reality.
