Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this post. So I'm here today to ask the question of how much character development do we need here. I've been all over the net searching up all manner of things on this subject and I'm a little distressed. Everything I read gives me a gigantic list of things that "I must have to have a good character sheet". I was under the impression I didn't need to delve extremely deep into the intricacies of my characters as far as their bios are concerned. All of these articles, pages and what not I've read tell me I have to list every single aspect of my character. I usually give the age and race with particular talents then finish up with a brief biography of the character as well as physical description. Do I really need to list their hobbies, spiritual status, mental state, every relative ever known to them and(what I personally find to be)a huge mish-mash of junk information to have a good character? Here is a link to one of the many things I've read: Ta-da! They're all pretty much like this here. I feel like virtually all of the information here is pointless. Its either that or I've been doing this completely wrong. Can anyone enlighten me a little? One more thank you for taking the time to read/respond to this post!
