The writer's guide to character archetype creation. A companion to the book by the same name.


The following are character creation tools. Use them with some appreciation for the rules with which to make character matrices.

The information in these tables has been collected over four years or so of painstaking research. Inevitably there will be more to come. For now I give these observations and categorizations to you as tools to build characters with.

If you purchase my book, I will be grateful. It contains the concise version of everything here, and a whole lot more that I don't publish online. The information on this site I provide free of charge, nevertheless it is copyright.
