How to Make Memorable Characters

Hosts Kai Norman and Ryan Omega invite Mike Graves from Eldritch Sky Gaming and Spencer Winter to the show to talk about what makes a character that you are creating "memorable" in the eyes of other players.

The discussion includes how to work with archetypes yet avoid stereotypes and why creating a character that is "cool and perfect" will be frustrating to play rather than memorable. Also covered in this topic are tips on playing characters with underrepresented backgrounds (racial, gender, or sexual minorities) that are different from the player and how to avoid being accidentally problematic even when well-intentioned but still play that character in your game.
