We have discussed who your character is in terms of themes, atmosphere, strengths and weaknesses, we have a fair idea of who they are as people and the circles the move in and the kinds of RP we’re seeking with them. The next step, at least in the order I have hurried these topics into, is to realise their appearance as this can build to, add to, and sometimes even alter or change the information we already have. Remember characters are not static and permanent, even after you roll them and RP them their appearance might change over time, but we will delve into that later on. In this section we are purely going to explore deciding on a look for your character, there will be a follow up post about writing a description based on that for RP add-ons such a FlagRSP, MRP and TotalRP.
From The Ground Up (FTGU) is a series of posts based around character creation and roleplay, building from the ground up, obviously. In this post we’re going to talk about your characters story and their development and how to do that. But if you have missed any parts this far you can catch up with them here:
