Character Details

The following is a list of things to consider for characters in my Supers Role-Playing Game, but most of them apply to any character in any RPG, and, in a larger sense, to characters in fiction in general.

  • Where did you get your Powers?
  • What is your opinion of your own Powers?
  • What is your relation to the state? (Criminal, Government Tool, etc.)
  • What is your relationship to the "Super Community" and the "Normals Community"?
  • What are your plans and goals?
  • Do you have a Super-Identity? ("The Weasel", "Ape-Man, etc.")
  • Do you have a Costume or a distinct Appearance?
Realistically, you should have some life skills that aren't skills relating to being a super or murdering people. Most jobs have some sort of skill involved; if you don't have any talents at all, you should have an appropriate history: convict laborer, slave, person locked in a trunk, Security Monitor, that sort of thing.
