Character Personality Questionnaire
« on: September 16, 2004, 03:56:32 PM »
I was contemplating writing up my first character in over a year today, so I came up with this simple character personality questionnaire.  Originally, I designed it solely for myself, but I figured it might prove to be useful to other players as well, so I converted it to HTML and uploaded it for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!



Feel free to e-mail me or reply to this thread with any suggestions.

Wow, a great indepth survey!

Something like this would really help new players fill out the holes in their backgrounds.

They should put something like this (or a pointer) in the character creation, answering these questions tells you lots more about a character than a thinly hashed out (and often cliched) background.

I speak for myself, I'm new and it really helped me!  :D
id my reputation preceed me, or was I too quick for it?
