I came to role playing gaming late, but I have spent many years engaged in game playing. This is an area that I have developed a deep love for. Primarily I am involved in playing Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition and Deadlands. I currently am a Dungeon Master for a D20 Modern game, which I will be posting about in relation to the development of my next campaign.

I haven’t kept this blog since the beginning of the current game I am in, but I am still going to jump in and create monthly reflections on my experience as a player. This is not a campaign diary – I’m not attempting to monologue the experiences of my character. Rather I want to comment on my pleasures and frustrations of being in the game.

The Paradigm of Player Characters

When considering a new campaign I need to consider how to characters will fit. I have decided on three key factors that will influence character construction, and that I need to factor into the development of my campaign. Not everyone would be considering this so early, but I am deciding to post based purely on what has me thinking at the moment.

Role playing games can provide some great sources of inspiration for writers. Not only in engaging as a player or a dungeon/game master, but also by utilising some of their resources. RPGs often are well resourced by fans, and many of their templates or information sheets can hold a wealth of ideas, not only for those writing in the fantasy genre also!
