Shared Topic: A Conversation With Your Character

This week’s Shared Topic had us getting groovy with our role playing side as we, the players, had a little chat with our characters. Azryu from the Arcanery was the one who came up with the idea:

If you gave your character a voice, how would a conversation between you and them go?

How would you interact with them? Would you play god? How would your character sound? Would they be intelligent, witty, or be the embodiment of the stereotypical “huntard”?

Responses took on all sorts of different forms! Some bloggers wrote stories to accompany their encounter with their character, some interviewed their characters in a more formal setting, others shared the ups and downs of their day to day relationship with their alter ego.


Enjoy the creative posts by:

Azryu from The Arcanery

TwilliK from Arcane Envoy

Marariel from Real Life Aggro

Liniya from Elune’s Guidance

Daraia from Daughter of Ravenholdt Manor

Exanna from OMG.. Priest!

Dristanel from The Physician’s Log

Ophelie from The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon

I know a couple of people mentioned they wanted to take part in the topic but were concerned about how “weird” they would sound… Trust me, the internet is a big place. There’s always someone who’ll appreciate your weirdness! And as long as it’s PG rated, new posts on the topic can be linked to in the comments!

So next week, we keep working our creative sides as we explore What sort of boss we’d be.

  • My e-persona is built off of weirdness and awkward moments.

    It fuels me.

    :)

  • It’s interesting how standoffish, or confrontational, a lot of these sound. Perhaps that’s just how I read them, but it seemed that way to me (then again, I guess it’d be rather boring if there was no conflict at all).

  • I noticed a lot of tension between players and characters too. I suppose that there’s the obvious “our characters must not like being controlled” thought, but I wonder if there’s a bit of honest frustration. I mean, how often have we been annoyed at our characters dying over and over and over again. Or envious that their lives are so much more fun than ours.
