Character Development Questions

Postby Gossamer on August 30th, 2009, 9:37 pm

Found in the wiki under Character Development Questions, this list of 100 questions has been specifically chosen and sectioned off for Mizahar's players to answer in order to get to know their characters better. Sometimes its hard to figure out exactly what your character might do, say or feel in a certain situation. Mizahar makes it easier to 'crawl into your pc's skin' by providing you some questions to answer about your PC. Now, many people will want to cut and paste these into their profile, so I've provided a clean copy of the code below to do so. It's totally customizable. Simply click on 'select all' where the code is, right click and hit copy, then paste it in a new post in your Character Sheet. You can change the frame color by replacing the #400040 with say the word "Black" or "White" or any color at all you might pick. Color codes can be found by hovering over the 'font colour' you like once the font colour button is clicked. It will give you the code (A series of numbers or letters) that will produce the color you want. You can also go to sites like Visibone's Color Lab to select additional colors. Then feel free to add a title, image, or any number of things to further customize your questionnaire. You can even change font coloring, background, and add images to each section. The sky is the limit on possibilities. Please enjoy this new tool!

By the way, we don't suggest answering all these questions all at once. Take them in sections! They go easier that way. :)

And I call it home. And there's no more lies. And the darkness is light. And nobody cries. There's only butterflies."
