Day 30: Share something you learned about playing your character
I’ll do you one better: I’ll share something I learned about myself while playing my characters. All of my characters tend to stay “on task”: there’s something to be done, and my character(s) are going to do it, and are going to make sure that the other characters are going to help. This is only slightly helped because I tend to write session reports and thus remember all kinds of details — but that is also part of who I am.
I’ve had other players remark that I’d be a great project manager, because I went about the mission so structured. I had never thought of myself that way, but not long after that, I did make a promotion to project manager, and I turned out to be pretty good at it…
I guess I’m not that good a roleplayer, because all of my characters tend to have this trait. Recently, I have tried playing characters that are more easy-going and less structured, and that’s hard work for me!
