Building Better Characters: A Tabletop RPG Guide

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

New or starting out with tabletop rpgs like D&D but want to avoid the pitfalls and traps of cliche, boring, edgy characters? This panel is about making your character resonate both on and off your character sheet by marrying gameplay and narrative, finding your role in the group dynamics, and just knowing what to watch for to create more fun and compelling player characters. Whether it's sanding off the edges of a character that’s dangerous close to being a 2008 DeviantArt OC, avoiding Mary Sues, or how to handle complex and mature topics with nuance and sympathy, this panel is open to all of your character-building questions!
