Sure you may be able to learn a few tips and tricks to create a compelling setting, but ultimately the creation of the characters is going to be what drives the story and keeps the players interested. That’s not to say that you can’t add characters; in fact, if you are creating a new game, it would probably be more advantageous to use the existing characters. But if you are looking to keep the story and add a bit of your own personality and flair to the world, then here are a few pointers to keep in mind.
Choose Your Characters Wisely
It goes without saying that you need to choose your characters wisely. Although you can certainly base your game around other characters (with permission, of course), it doesn’t make for a very fun experience. When creating characters for a DS RPG you should consider three things. First, what sort of game is being played? This will guide you on the types of characters you can create and also help you decide how much of those characters you can include.
Second, consider the players. Are they role-playing enthusiasts? If so, they may be interested in using characters who can fulfill a specific role-playing need. On the other hand, they may be more concerned with developing personalities and exploring the world and its people.
In addition, you should consider the environment you want to create characters in. Some players prefer to play in dark, harsh environments, while others thrive in sunny, colorful environments. Depending on your game and the characters you plan to create, you can adjust the environment of your game to fit the kind of characters you wish to create.
Think About The Players Themselves
Finally, think about the players themselves. Will they be creating characters to play an adventure, perhaps? Or are they creating them as part of a social experiment, where the player can affect the game in some way? Creating a character in an RPG is a personal choice, one that you will carry with you through your gaming experience.
Now that you know these tips you can start thinking about character creation in DS RPGs. The first step is to decide what kind of character you would like to create. How would you want your character to look? What kind of skills do you need for this role playing? There are several ways you can design your character and get started. Some people start with a basic character, and depending on how much time and effort you’re willing to spend on character creation, you can modify that character until it matches your personality.
If you are new to RPGs and would prefer to create your own characters in games such as The Elder Tale then I recommend checking out my blog, which walks you through character creation in Zelda Twilight Princess. When playing in Zelda Twilight Princess, players are allowed a wide variety of character creation options. While there are traditional Link characters (blue) and generic Link characters (green), you can create your own characters using the appropriate accessory. When creating your own Link character, you have the option of selecting your eye color, your skin color, your hair style, and more. By taking full advantage of this feature you can ensure that your Link is unique and has a distinct personality.
