I'd really like to expand on it and then add the list to our wiki if possible. Can you help us expand? This also might be a good place to add or advertise some of what you think is your own character's merits and flaws. I know I've added mine to my own character's sheet.

Adding Character Traits To The Wiki (Merits & Flaws)

Postby S'Essy on January 4th, 2015, 6:27 pm

Nice one! I really like the idea! :D
My suggestions:

babbling a lot, talkative, lovely, likeable, sympathetic, mad, gluttony

And those came to mind suddenly.

selfless/unselfish, proud, pretentious, slob, respectful, meek, eccentric...

I'm thinking!

EDIT: inquisitive, egotistical. Kind of similar to curious and falls close to selfish. Or "self-absorbed"... Hrm.

Postby Shane Wallsly on January 4th, 2015, 6:36 pm

Maybe Admirable, clean, adaptable, warm, well-bred (as the opposite of ill-bred), tolerant, wise and witty?

Edit: stalwart and steadfast!

I came up with this for Shane. Not sure about it now but I'll post it anyway. First draft was very lopsided on the negative side.

Positive Character Traits: ambitious, careful, cautious, clever, crafty, curious, independent, selfish, imaginative, logical, observant, adaptable.

Negative Character traits: cowardly, clumsy, competitive, critical, cynical, fidgety, formal, gloomy, greedy, jealous, liar, lonely, selfish.

Adding Character Traits To The Wiki (Merits & Flaws)

Postby Fallon on January 4th, 2015, 6:44 pm

Hurrah, Traits!

I will suggest a some more "good" traits that I have managed to scrounge up from my mind:

Adaptable
Balanced
Calm
Capable
Challenging
Deep
Dignified
Exciting
Focused
Forgiving
Idealistic
Impressive
Modest
Neat
Passionate
Playful
Popular
Realistic
Respectful
Sociable
Skillful
Trusting
Understanding


And one of my favourite words - meretricious (definition: apparently attractive but having no real value).

I will come back probably with more later. As for Fallon herself...

Merits:Focused, mischievous, loyal, inquisitive, charismatic, decisive.
Flaws: Manipulative, Stubborn, Temperamental, Unbalanced.

Fallon is a Master of Intimidation, "At this level, a Master intimidator often unconsciously intimidates their target unless the intimidator monitors their stance, tone, and actions to prevent this. Master intimidators will nearly always have a reputation that precedes them unless they have taken special care to prevent it."

Adding Character Traits To The Wiki (Merits & Flaws)

Postby Gossamer on January 17th, 2015, 3:13 am



I'm locking this thread because we've moved the traits to the wiki.

http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Character_Traits

If you have more to add, feel free to add them into the wiki page directly.

Also, there's a great resource out there:

http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/parts-of-speech/adjectives/adjectives-that-start-with-q.html

This is where I got some of the Q's. We were lacking. So if anyone wants to go through and add more to some of our longer lists, feel free.
