The basics of an RPG (role-playing game)

Taken from flashbox.proboards15.com (my site)


Note: This is based on the Stick RPG game but I’ve added in some other stuff too.
Now bear with me I'm not sure if this will work because I just wrote this all without testing it so please report any errors.

First-of-all what you want to do is decide:
1. Your characters occupation(s) –
Start off by deciding what you want your Playable Character to do. Pick a job that blends in with your characters surroundings e.g. it would work well if you had your character being a Mafia Hit man if he/she lived Italy.
2. The characters appearance and personality –
Decide now what your character should look like and their distinguishing character traits e.g. shifty eyes, giant head, Red, strawberry blonde, hair etc. Now pick a personality to match the look i.e. a person with shifty eyes could be a criminal or a drug dealer etc. And lastly pick a name for your character, a suitable name one which almost gives away the characters personality.
3. Pick your enemies, decide your friends –
Your character will definitely need an enemy, pick a reason why and how that person is your enemy. If you’re going to have a no. of enemies you’ll need friends, someone to help you get the job done…
4. The Character’s Background –
Lastly what you want to do is to decide the following questions:
• Where does your character come from?
• Who does he/she interact with? (Mafia stuff like that)
• Why is your character in the position they are in? (Unpaid debts to the Mafia etc.)

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
