(I don’t claim things like this are the only or even the best way to develop characters - there’s a lot to be said for putting the list down and just writing them and seeing what happens - but I think they’re interesting, so.)
What skills or abilities do they have outside of their major occupation? How much time and effort do they devote to cultivating these?
How quickly can they pick up new skills? Do they prefer to learn by doing, or study the theory first?
Are they willing to learn new things, generally? Do they try to keep their skills and information up to date? Do they not care? Do they think they already know everything they need?
How persistent are they? When confronted with a difficult task, can they stick with it, or are they more likely to give up?
When something goes wrong, who do they blame (e.g. circumstance, somebody else, a higher power, themself)? How easy or hard is it for them to get back up?
How well do they take care of themself? Is it a priority? Are there areas they neglect?
Can they cook? Do they have specialties or strong preferences? What is their attitude toward food?
Could they fend for themselves in a strange environment? In the wilderness? In a town or country where they don’t know anyone? How well would they find their way around and meet basic needs?
What constitutes luxury for them? What are their biggest indulgences, and how often do they treat themself?
How is their fashion sense? How much time and care do they put into their personal style? Do they have a deep wardrobe, or dress mostly the same from day to day?
How comfortable are they with violence?
How readily do they believe what they’re told? Are they gullible? Skeptical? Do they only trust certain sources, or even just their own experience?
How much do they speak? When they do, are they more likely to choose their words carefully or say the first thing that comes to mind?
Are they honest? (Does it depend on the context?) How good are they at lying or at lying by omission?
How readily do they emote? How much or how well do they think they express emotions?
What are they insecure about?
What are they afraid of? What do they find intimidating?
How do they balance the various aspects of their life? Do they keep work (or school, or whatever else they do) and home life in their own compartments, or do things blur together (maybe they can’t leave work at the office, or one of their hobbies affects the way they look at everything else, or they also repurpose their high-powered battle magics for simple household tasks)?
Do they prefer structure or spontaneity? Do they keep routines reliably or leave their options open? How well do they keep their commitments, or how well can they cope with sudden changes in circumstance?
Do they like people, in general? Do they tend to believe people are good, bad, selfish, altruistic, neutral?
It’s Wednesday! Might as well make it a worldbuilding Wednesday
Ask me some questions while I sort out some less fun things
An additional question, how will this affect those of us who are already running 2.1.1? Will we need to downgrade?
I have no idea, but it’s possible. As of right now, downgrading may be your best bet.
Highlight “Horizons” but don’t press “Launch”. On the “Modpacks” tab, find the drop down menu labeled “Recommended”. Go down to “2.1.0” and click “Launch”
Hopefully this works and doesn’t break everything further.
Will happen TOMORROW… As I had a wonderful birthday surprise and can no longer be online tonight!
And I still haven’t opened my birthday presents!! Soon!
Since no one has actually made a post about this yet…
The pack we are moving to is FTB HORIZONS
You will also need to install MODULAR POWERSUITS (You need the first two files and the vanilla.recipes file).
Optional, but recommended: Enable Rei’s Minimap from the Edit Modpack tab (or your minimap of choice), and if you don’t mind a bit of lag, install JourneyMap as well for a full world map.
If the game won’t run for you, try these things!
-Restart your computer
If none of these work, I’m afraid I can’t help you, but there are loads of tutorials and people better with computer stuff than me out there
I’m running this pack on a Mac laptop. Y’all ain’t got no excuse
Because we are a roleplay server, there are a few little points of etiquette that really need to be respected. Unfortunately, quite a few of us seem to have some trouble with this particular one. Myself included.
Please do not interrupt RP. It’s irritating and confusing for those participating. Keep an eye on chat and if RP seems to be starting, kindly shut up. If you need to continue a conversation, perhaps whisper or use Skype (or some other chat).
If you need to ask someone to be quiet, whisper to them. If you don’t know it, the command is
If you need to leave and want to say goodbye, that’s alright. One little message in chat isn’t really intrusive or immersion breaking
If you need to go afk, there’s no need to announce it to the server. Place a sign if you’re that concerned about people knowing you’re away
Thank you for being courteous to anyone roleplaying!
2. How do they feel about their appearance?
She has mixed feelings about it. There are a lot of mistakes and regrets attached to her appearance, as pretty much all of her notable features are due to her own actions.
However, she does take some pride in being a monster. There’s a significant intimidation factor in looking the way she does, and she abuses it.
There are times when she’d really like to be normal again, though…
11. How do they feel about physical contact? What are their personal space requirements?
3. What would their ideal friend be like? (Have they had any luck finding such a person?)
This isn’t something I’ve actually devoted any thought to, and honestly she probably wouldn’t have either….She kind of forms bonds with people through outside influences and events and remains pretty distant with everyone else.
I suppose what she values most is mutual respect, ability to collaborate, and someone she feels secure showing her vulnerable side to, and who can actually offer some rational input on in return
22. How well do they deal with injuries or ailments?
She’s incredibly resilient by human standards and can survive most injuries at least long enough to gt help. As for emotionally coping with it…she’s probably not the best. She’ll either seek some sort of revenge or be quietly distraught about it, depending on how she got hurt.
She’s also got a (sometimes unhealthy) “I’ll fix it myself” attitude and often won’t seek out help unless she’s pretty much out of options.
27. How much do they care about etiquette, politesse, propriety? Do they have the same standards for themself as for other people?
Frances definitely has different standards for herself vs everyone else. She cares deeply about the manners and etiquette of others, or at least pretends to.
She generally is polite, herself, but that’s often something of a mockery of civility while she’s being horrible.
