Every day (for the next 26 days) I’ll feature a 200 Word RPG along with some musings and comments. View the whole alphabet here.
Quick NPC Generator by Doug Ruff isn’t anything special, but it is extremely useful. Although these questions are meant for NPCs, I would probably use it for my players.
Often it can be difficult for new players to flesh out there characters and lists like these were super helpful when I was a new player. These are some of the best from the list, along with 2 or 3 questions of my own:
When you first look at them, what stands out?
What things are they really good at?
What things are they really bad at?
How do they react to danger?
What motivates them?
What are some other good questions to ask when creating a character?
