The 100 Most Important Things To Know About Your Character (revised) Quote from original Author(Beth):This list came about when, one day while struggling to develop a character for an upcoming Hunter game, my lovely roommate Nikki looked at me and said something like, "Wouldn't it be cool to have a list of questions you could go through and answer while you were making characters, so you'd make sure to consider all sorts of different elements in their personality?" I agreed, and that very evening we sat down over hot chocolate and ramen noodles to whip up a list of 100 appearance-, history-, and personality-related questions (which seemed like a nice even number) to answer as a relatively easy yet still in-depth character building exercise. Later on, we went through the list again, took out the questions that sucked (because there were a lot of them) and replaced them with better ones. What you see before you is the result of that second revision. Just don't email us specifically to tell us how much we suck. That only results in cranky gamerchicks.

Three years after his death, I realize that an artist like Stanley Kubrick is subtler when describing the downfall of civilization. Best known for films like “2001: A Spacey Odyssey,” “Full Metal Jacket,” and “Eyes Wide Shut,” Kubrick was once one of the famed five directors with “final cut” status. This meant that Kubrick controlled all aspects of the final product – no studio could take a film and recut it to their liking.
