Roleplaying Emotion


How can you express your character’s feelings without embarrassing yourself?

Sometimes the hardest thing to do in a tabletop roleplaying game is engage with the roleplaying part. It's not that we have a shortage of ideas on how our characters would behave. Their abilities aren't a mystery to us, and we know how to use them to our tactical advantage. Things break down when we have to perform the characters. As people. In character. With feelings and reactions and all of that messy, potentially embarrassing stuff.

Roleplaying Emotion helps you to understand the character’s emotions within the context of the story goal, their personal goals, and their motivations. When this are going well, the character will express things like affection, contentment, happiness, hope, and respect. When things go poorly, they’ll express anger, disgust, fear, sadness, and shame.

Designed for creative tabletop roleplayers of all levels of experience, with clear step-by-step instructions you can:

  • Understand how to portray positive and negative emotions
  • Learn how to describe degrees of emotional states
  • Utilize 5 core positive emotions, centered on joy
  • Utilize 5 core negative emotions, centered on pain
  • Use emotions to gain modifiers on die rolls for tasks

What I like about this series is that every book focuses on role-playing and storytelling rather than mechanics. This makes the ideas easy use for any game you are playing. Because I am a person who likes telling stories with friends more than killing [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
