Episode 859: Farming the Strikes

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Modesty can be an unusual trait for a character. Most players prefer to think of their characters as outwardly self-confident or even braggarts. This is fine for a heroic setting in which the PCs are true heroes and some of the most powerful people in the land. But even then modesty in certain situations can add interest and have benefits.

And then there's the flip-side of modesty: smugness. Perfect for annoying villains.

For variety, try reversing the roles and have smug heroes and modest villains. Just think about that for a bit.
