Character Creation Resources

Post by Zeru » Tue Aug 04, 2009 3:20 pm

This is a short guide to get started with character creation. Whether you're new to the game or just stuck thinking of your next character, the point of this article is to help.


Some things you might want to include in your character's profile:
Name
Nicknames or Aliases
Gender
Species
Age

Place of Birth
Family, living and deceased
Other close relations, if any
Current Occupation

Physical Description
Personal History
Role-plays they've been in

Likes and Dislikes
Any odd habits or quirks
Goals
Fears and Beliefs

Most of the things are not absolutely required, but will definitely help flesh out your character and make them more interesting and fun. Even if your character is a mysterious warrior or something, that doesn't mean you shouldn't do this anyways? Besides, it's not like any characters in-game necessarily know any of this.


Links to Helpful Resources, Tutorials, etc.
Please comment with any additions to this!

Anthropomorphic Animal Generator - A great way to get started on the very basics of a character. Some of the results are strange, but most are very useful. Can be used to generate modern, fantasy, science fiction, and steam-punk characters! Also great for background characters and NPCs.

Killing John Smith: Creating Original Characters - A guide to creating original characters by our very own RabidFox! An awesome way to get the gears in your head going, or maybe a reality check on your characters.

The Mary-Sue Litmus Test - A quick and fun resource to check if your character is a mary-sue. Try to check your characters with this before finishing them! It'll provide very helpful insight.

I just wanted to say thanks for posting this! I'm new and wasn't entirely confident about whether or not my character was a Sue, but it helped a lot. :)

Hi! Welcome to Feila. :D

You should post a new thread in the Entrance Hall that has your character's information in it. This is a help thread.
