Hello, I’m Chris, better known as Raslazel of the Iron Realms Entertainment MUD, Achaea. This post is all about embracing a character’s flaws and how it stands to make him more interesting. If you’ve no idea what I’m on about, check out some of my previous posts and play one of the free MMORPGs from Iron Realms and find out for yourself!
A character’s flaws are what make him a deep, believable character as opposed to an archetype. Be it a virtuous knight with a drinking problem, a shrewd accountant that likes to gamble or a brutal overlord with a weakness for women, character flaws just make them more interesting.
Consider adding a bad habit or annoying feature to your character, something that others will have to put up with to get along with you. Don’t add anything too obnoxious, maybe just a small nervous tick or finger-tapping here and there. When you feel comfortable doing these things, add something a bit bigger. Two or three flaws is enough for most characters, don’t go overboard.
I hope this helped to show that imperfection helps a character be more interesting. These small things can add a lot of depth to your gameplay. Roll a character in your favourite no-download, free MMORPG from Iron Realms and try it out! Most importantly, have fun!
