- If the corpse is not being used for an experiment, burn it. We cannot stress this enough.[/quote]
I object to the idea that you weren’t warned. There were posters up everywhere. You guys contributed the posters yourselves. There’s not much more we can do!
2) Your character connections will provide you with more interesting fodder if they’re not all buddy-buddy. Having friends is great, but not many people like their friends unconditionally. The character connection that will get you the most plot is the one where you don’t quite know how to feel about them because a) they saved your mother from the demons and b) did it by using your father as a shield.[/quote]
PvP! PvP! ahem
Also, backstories that contain unresolved issues are fantastic to work with.
"My brother was killed by demons"
"My brother was brutally murdered in our family home. The murderer took a family heirloom with our family crest on it, and I suspect it was to do with his dealings with the army because X, Y and Z."
"Fell in love once, but it didn’t last"
"The affair with Nicole was tempestuous, but it ended badly when her husband Bruce showed up and they ran off with the loot we’d spent the last six month accumulating. If I could just stop loving her I’ll happily shoot her the next time she shows up."
This way the NPC doesn’t have to walk up to you and say "Hi there, was your brother brutally murdered? I think it might have been me than done it. My bad."
Instead, an NPC can try to use the family heirloom to buy supplies and you can take it from there.
3) If you want to interact with people, make it so your character can’t do certain things; trade, shoot arrows, read and write, etc.
4) That person you met this morning might be a demon. They turn out to be with surprising frequency.[/quote]
Lies and Slander!!
5) Be very, very careful when getting married. Five out of six people would agree if they weren’t dead.[/quote]
Nothing to do with us.
