Conversation Guide for Role Playing Characters 3.0

Watermarked PDF

New version 3.1 is now available with more printer friendly layout!

As a game master, when planning an adventure and writing the characters, I benefit of a template to study various motivations and strategies that characters may use when attempting to get what they want. The template also works as a nice GM screen printout to improvise dialogue between characters - all you need to do is glance at it and your brain should fire up with possibilities.

Page 1-3: general proposal/counter-proposal structure in three NPC dispositions (positive, neutral, negative)
Page 4: printable template to record a conversation
Page 5: example of template use
Page 6: supplemental control - interest map
Page 7: example of control - interest map use
Page 8: dialogue scene on the control - interest map

Please leave a review, written preferrably. I'm always interested in feedback and willing to explore points you think I should elaborate.

All my titles feature full document as quick preview. Please take a look!

Frankly, if you don't need much help running a petitioner/granter conversation, these templates probably aren't for you. If you sometimes struggle to decide how an NPC reacts in a petitioner/granter conversation, these templates could help. The [...]

Nice simple template. Not sure if I'll print it but it has given me ideas on how to structure a conversation better. [...]

First, I would simply recommend getting Mr. Arto Saari's "All Think Different BUNDLE". I'd value the bundle at about $5. I assume Mr Saari isn't a native English speaker. His products contain many odd sentences, grammar mistakes, spell [...]

These worksheets take up a lot of space, and they lack easy-to-find blanks for common deatils like "name" and "location." The advice is great: "think in terms of what a character wants, and what they will do if they get or if [...]

The author responded to earlier comments and added in examples of how to use the guide at your table. I like all the changes. I'm impressed by the effort put in and it's easily worth the recommended price. [...]

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.
