Role Play Generator Links

Postby PaintedbyRoses » Wed Feb 28, 2018 7:19 am

I think that playing Cantr has a lot in common with fiction writing. In fact, I think that a lucrative source of untapped (as far as I know) new players is in the fan fiction community. I'm betting they would love Cantr and be great role players (but that's for a different post).

I came across this master list for creative writing on Tumbler that I thought could come in handy for players who are experiencing a discouraging creative block which might lead to them abandoning characters or the game altogether. There are also links to tips on how to be a better writer.

Thank you, this is fantastic! :D I may actually have to use this for my ongoing personal writing project as well.

This really does provide some great inspiration for character creation.

I will have to investigate those generators, just out of curiosity.
I've been rather fond of the generators at http://www.springhole.net/writing_roleplaying_randomators/index.html - There's a variety of categories of things to generate, and then interesting things inside those categories. I may have used it to get ideas for names or clothing before.
