Crash course in creatin' an RP Character

Postby Walking Zombee » 03 Sep 2014, 03:03

WARNING: This does not help with powers of any sort, that is a way too vivid of a concept to toss around with a guide. Actually...I'll think about it.

- Step One: So many choices, what to go for first?
- Broken mirror: The pieces of the character that make a whole
- What's my Story?
- Who do I know?
- What do I do?
- What am I?

- Step Two: Socialites and Interacting with the Public
- Background, and clichés (We all know demons are cool, but try your best!)
- Social Mores and Laws
- Who shaped my opinions? (The effect of family on perceptions)

- Step Three: An Empty Mind
- Filling your Character's Head
- Emptying your Character's Head (Wash, rinse, repeat, get those details in/out!)
- Personality Traits
- Physical Habits and Mannerisms

- Step Four: An Empty Life
- I've got personality but no lifestyle!
- My class, and how it relates to me
- Using class and profession to add to a character's basis.
- Education: What do I know, and who taught me?

- Step Five: Hey everybody, come see how good I look!
- Physical Appearance and Characteristics
- Start big, then go small
- Descriptive words
- Touching bases: Society and tattoos, piercings, ect.
- Describing my Garb (what do I wear?)
- Affiliations and Dressing (who do I know and how does that effect my dress?)

- Who am I now? (ranks, titles, ((Like Jax and the Akolites, Gold being ruler of Hell)) and other things to top 'em off.)

If you have anything to add, I'll accept anything, and make any edits to further help people with rp
