    This is awesome.

    I'm adding this to my list of fallback inspiration tricks.

    The start of a new campaign drives me to make a new character. As soon as I hear about the idea of a new game starting up, I try and make something interesting that I haven't played before, or at least something very different than I just played. I try to stay away from making an overly effective character but that's really hard for me to do. I like increasing my chances of survival. I also gain inspiration from selecting a random disorder, delusion, mania, or phobia to make them really unique. I set short term and long term goals, and define a motivation.

    If I need truly random character inspiration, I use the website "who the f is my D&D character?".

    I look at class first to get an idea of how they play. If I find them interesting, an idea for a personality. I donít fully settle on the personality until I play them more and then let them develop through RP.

    If Iím too focused on a particular character concept then Iím not gonna let them grow until I get it right and I never get him right.

    Last time I tried rolling on the trinket table, I came up with the eggshell painted with the human misery thing. 3 times in a row.
    When I told a friend about this, she commented on my character apparently getting a Behelit.

    For those of you that know what that means.. I'm sorry..

    That is totally awesome to me and I would so own up to that aspect of my character.
