PostSubject: Character Descriptions In Game   Fri Jun 28, 2013 12:33 pm

Descriptions are a great way to help generate RP for your characters. They also give an idea of what a person sees.


A description shouldn't be a life story. It shouldn't tell what the character did as a child or their favorite food as that would not be visible upon seeing them (unless there are food stains all over them Razz)

A description could include:
-size (fat, thin, muscular)
-races or sub race if can be seen (you're an elf? Great! What kind?)
-Hair or eye color
-tattoos or scars
-frequent mannerisms that you don't want to type in emoting every two seconds (does he smoke a pipe? Does she twiddle her fingers? Nervous look on the face?
-smells

If you leave the standard "The only way to escape the life of a commoner..." description is OK just is a NWN Generic Default. (That part added by Hiddukel with Sloth's acceptance)

Something to think about, it helps breaks the RP Ice if  you have something to start with.


This just a suggestion Not a requirement to do. Just help fill in your Char's a bit more.

(the deletions to the original post where done by Hiddukel with Sloth's acceptance. This comment here, written by Sloth)

Yes there is. Use the crafting option in the radial menu.
