"5 Steps to Writing a Killer RPG Character"
Posted: Posted September 20th, 2016 by Cetasaurus

I found this short, instructive article while I was haphazardly web-surfing the other day. It's not quite geared toward our online style of RPing, but much of the advice is still applicable. I thought it might be interesting to you all. :)

Awesome article! Thank you for sharing. My favorite sentence: "It’s okay if your character isn’t an orphan or hasn’t lost the love of their life to violence." That's always the most annoying thing I've ever run across. It seems like so many online role-playing games are a pissing contest of who has the most tragic backstory. "Okay, so your wife was raped to death by bloodthirsty demons, but MY character's wife AND children were raped to death by bloodthirsty demons!"
