I'd like to do bullet point backgrounds. I can come up with decent ideas most of the time but I get tripped up in fleshing out the backstory. I do much better working off of others in the actual game. I'm no writer that is for sure. I think my writing has improved tremendously since I first came to these boards Back when it was dndonline before mythweavers was even thought about. Still not taking sides on that one. Yet here I am....way back when. I'm still working on a character for this game. Not sure if Shabti is an allowed race but if it were I have an idea for a two pistol fighter. His original body lived in the old west. He was a gun-slinger from the old Texas territory. Now he is about 1500 years or a bit older. He uses two blaster pistols or even a blaster rifle if it is called for. Francis "Two Pistol Pete" Maguson.

Mechanical wise he's a Soulknife Soulbolt. I think I could go with Elan race as well and make it work but the description of the Shabti just fit perfectly for this concept.

See, I'm one of the people that gets married to the concept. In this case it happened I looked for a class combo that fit my desired background for a game of such nature. Most other times however I have a character concept appearance I want to fill in and have to adapt a background to be suitable for the campaign. Rarely do I ever have wide choice in background.

Writeup for Kaldra, the primitive human stalker of men (Slayer) is complete. I have most of her mechanics figured out, but I don't have items done or a sheet drawn up yet, though most of it is sitting in Pathbuilder. I will get those finished as soon as possible (Friday?), but the writing itself is done.

Thank you!

Finito. My god, my brain.

I don't know why I am unable to condense my writing sometimes.

I need a beer. G'night.

I find my best characters are developed when I have an ongoing dynamic in mind for how they will react and behave. Something as simple as motivations that are continuous, a mental/reactionary complex, the push and pull of another personality. Those are the ones where I can expand the personality to general circumstances, then plot out a few background points and see where the characters will logically lead me. Often times they'll grow from there before the story is written fully and I have to run through a few iterations.

Appearances are my struggle point. Actions and visuals are much more conceptual in my mind. I would be content saying a character had discerning eyes and a sly grin and leave it there. The rest of them exists in some form but that's irrelevant until it's not.

It's actually fascinating to see how different people approach writing, each with their own strengths and weaknesses

But, I

I'm pretty much in the same boat, of my four games one has grinded to a standstill and I'm unsure if it's gonna start back up again, another I know will pick up the pace again, then one I'm waiting for more people to post in and another where I really should make a post but there's nothing meaningful I can do...

This thread is pretty much the most action I'm getting here.

Is this what it feels like to be a married man hoping to get some action?

Well, I'm still owed a post, guess I'll go do that. And then Cordyceps' stat sheet.

Kaldra stepped on too many toes. Out of respect for my fellow applicants, I have withdrawn my application. If time permits I will consider something more original, but may not manage to figure anything out at this point.

One of my favorite ways to write is in second person. I once created a character named Yew so that I could write in third and second at once. Got too confusing for the non English readers tho lol.

Added some extra juicy stuff to the RP side of things. I'll highlight them.

Great news!

Though I am struck with the inexplicable feeling of insecurity with my own app, considering how many contenders there are.
