FRPG6 Character Behavior Engine

Watermarked PDF

Characters behave and react to stimulus which may be found in the behavior engine. This behavior engine helps create behavior styles for games and stories. This behavior engine takes into account 9 personality types, 3 mindsets, 9 stat archetypes, 9 virtues, and 9 vices. It can use the Dialogue Generator, Motivation Generator, and Character Communicator primarily.

It has a small character exploring game called 'Confront the Character' which can be used to explore characters and test tools.

I recommend having the Character Generator, Motivation Generator, and two 6 sided dice at a minimum. The Character Communicator, Dialogue Engine, and Body Language Generator can lend to adding interesting dialogue, action preference, and character reaction description.

This meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for creating character behavior and actions. Behavior may vary by culture or region of the world.

This tables either suggest, or refer to four tables in the book. The keywords are meant to help trigger thoughtful and inspirational ideas. Its generic enough for any game or story genre characters. 

8 pages: It's first page is the image shown on the cover thumbnail. The second is a BW title page. The third page is a table of contents and requirements to play, the fourth page is the introduction and behavior engine table, the fifth page is archetype and primary attribute tables, the sixth page is the stat archetype & virtue/vice tables, the seventh page is explains the archetype details, and the seventh & eigth page has the instructions and an example of the using the behavior engine.

How do the 4 character engines fit together?

In the first engine, the dialogue engine, 4 preferences were assigned to archetypes: discuss, do, feel, and think.

The four engines made focus on these four preferences.

discuss - dialogue engine

do - behavior engine

feel - emotional reaction engine

think - thinking engine

This behavior engine recommends having the Character Generator for personality or vice/virtue influence, the Motivation Generator for motive influence, the Character Communicator for situation archetype function suggestions, and the Dialogue Engine for dialogue suggestions. Optional is the Body Language Generator to add non-verbal body language to the conversation

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.
