character development

S10E5 – Character History: Nurture

People – and characters – are made up of their past experiences. When crafting a character, one of the most important aspects we consider is her past. – Sky Fairwin

S10E4 – Character History: Nature

One brain’s blueprint may promote joy more readily than most; in another, pessimism reigns. Whether happiness infuses or eludes a person depends, in part, on the DNA he has chanced to receive. – Thomas Lewis

S10E2 – Using D&D to Create a Story Character

You are not entering this world in the usual manner, for you are setting forth to be a Dungeon Master. Certainly there are stout fighters, mighty magic-users, wily thieves, and courageous clerics who will make their mark in the magical lands of D&D adventure. You however, are above even the greatest of these, for as DM you are to become the Shaper of the Cosmos. It is you who will give form and content to all the universe. You will breathe life into the stillness, giving meaning and purpose to all the actions which are to follow. – Gary Gygax

S7E8 – Shoulder Angels

“The three natures of man. Good, evil, and the man struggling between!… The capacity for good and evil is within every person from birth, I think.” – Ted Dekker

S3E7 – Weaknesses

The more limitations you put on a character often times the better a character you’ll make them, the more interesting the story becomes because the character can’t simply wave a hand and make something happen. They have to work within the framework. – Brandon Sanderson
