A Deeper Character Delve: 365 Character Questions

 Bhagpuss was intrigued by the discussion of Good vs Evil character alignment and wrote a post talking about it in more depth.   http://bhagpuss.blogspot.com/2018/08/hes-good-bad-but-hes-not-evil.html

He even made a new set of alignment explanations for the Modern Reader.  

The interesting thing about all of this is, older role playing games immersed you in their world partially by helping you create a character with some depth, and background.  They encouraged you to know this adventurer.

While looking for some of the type of questions typically asked in games to help you get started, I found a link to an amazing list of questions for you to answer about your character.  A question for every single day of the year.

The questions range from what are your character’s favorite _________to questions asking what the character would do in a particular situation.   The purpose of the questions is to help you get to know that character, and to give them life and background, whatever world they adventure in.


I Like Her But I Need To Kill Her

I am excited to be playing the Skyrim Special Edition.  My original game plays merely ok on my PC, but except for some odd lag, it plays much more smoothly with this Remaster.

I am really loving my Elder Scrolls Online character, so I thought I’d try a Breton Mage in Skyrim as well.  I have used a little magic in other Elder Scrolls games, but never have played an entirely magic user.  Having a Claymore at hand resolves fights so efficiently.  Run up on NPC, whack, whack, they’re dead, particularly those weak magic users.

The good news is, the Mage is fun to play, though I haven’t quite got enough confidence in her skills and my use of them yet.  Getting better with each encounter.

The bad news is, though she looked sort of ok on the character creation screen, my Mage is a crone like horror story.  I just can’t play this scary thing.

I play third person view always, and thought she might be doable in a cowl, but no, now she looks like she’d kill you in your sleep.  Even more.

Luckily I’m not far along at all, I’m just working the Whiterun area.  Not much time will be lost starting over, but much will be gained by her well deserved demise.
