5 STEPS TO IMBUE YOUR RPG CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY TO SPARE

Original Post by COURTNEY KRAFT

I have a confession to make: I used to hate Dungeons & Dragons.

I played twice during my formative teen years and found it to be incredibly dull. My character was a fighter named Micki M. Annoyus who had a big sword and that was about it. She wasn’t a character. She was a fighter with a big sword. Micki had no story and no personality. I didn’t care what happened to her. Then in college, I heard about my friends’ D&D campaign based on the anime Slayers–which I also hated–but decided to give it a try. I created a barbarian gourmet chef named Haruka who was ridiculous and super fun. Following that game, the characters I created were way more interesting because I built them from the inside out. I knew who they were as people, which allowed me to get in their heads and really act as they would.

Below are my five tips for creating roleplay characters with depth and personality to enrich your RPG experiences.

Betrayal at House on the Hill Is Finally Getting Its First Ever Expansion

Betrayal at House on the Hill has been an icon of board games for over a decade now. But despite having reprints and new editions, the game has never officially been expanded beyond its original scope. That is until now: a whole new series of horrifying new haunts are on the way, and we have the first look.

Widow’s Walk, developed by original Betrayal lead developer Mike Selinker and his team at Lone Shark Games with Wizards of the Coast, features a whole slew of new scenarios, tiles, creatures, and rules for the base game, refreshing the current set for the first time in its entire history.
