Tell Me About Your Character

Watermarked PDF

Tell Me About Your Character is a character development resource that can be used with any role-playing game. Since so many games focus entirely on “the mission,” some gamers don’t really know where to start when it comes to creating three-dimensional characters. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

Tell Me About Your Character is divided into two main sections: instructions and worksheets. It’s sort of like a tax booklet, but hopefully a lot more fun. There are three worksheets: the Character Information worksheet, which helps you flesh out your character’s background, goals, and personality; the Supporting Cast worksheet, where you provide information about the people your character knows; and the Game Preferences worksheet, which gives you a chance to let the GM know what kind of game you’re interested in playing. The bulk of the book gives guidelines for the worksheets and provides examples of both good and bad responses.

Tell Me About Your Character is written by Steve Johnson and illustrated by Joshua LH Burnett and Jeffrey Johnson.

Make better characters. Have more fun!

Preaching to the converted here: for me role-playing is all about creating an altenate reality and populating it with believable characters that 'come alive' within the context of that shared alternate reality... and so of course I applaud any effort [...]

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.
