Intelligent and bright, they explored a world that was new and strange to them. They liked it, they thought - a whole world just for them! They were dimly aware that a God had created them, was watching them; they called out to him, thanking him in a chittering language, before running off.


Yes ok I will try this out

I promise to replay Bastion before the game so that it sounds more authentic - just for you, birb.

I don't know what I'm getting into but I'm leaning heavily at terrible film noir detective. Can I be Dick Tracey's less competent third cousin, or something to that effect?

I'm also playing with the notion of roleplaying Donald Trump. Cause that would be stupid and wonderful. But I don't know that I have the stamina for it.

We'll see, I guess I've got a month.

While there have been many helpful tips, take it from someone who had a rather thin characterization compared to everyone else when starting out in Myst: use your background and win condition as a good guidepost and then just run with it.

Asiina

Grimey Drawer

Exactly. I'm not sure how different it will be this time, but last time you were given a character and a bit of a backstory on them. You're not obligated to go along with the characterizations you're given, but it's fun to try to make it work. I was given a fightmans backstory but I only wanted to puzzle, so I instead focused in on the fact that her mother was a known hero before she died so her motivation is to live up to her mother's legacy. That one idea basically motivated everything else she did.

As Max said, pick some characteristics in your background that speak to you and run with it.

Here's a quote that's relevant to what Asiina and I were talking about. It's from my confessional last year:

Harsha's Journal posted:

Week two on this island. While thereís been some scraps, I have confidence that others will maybe hopefully hold back on murders for a bit. Meanwhile, Iíve embarked on a mission to give myself a purpose on this island. While others seem to have rather intricate backstories involving each other, mine seems to be rather mundane. Come to an island, do some ambiguous stuff, get paid. Easy enough, but BORING.

So now, I have a bone sword, adorned with the skull of someone more unfortunate than I. Stage one of my mission to impress: complete.
