Writing the Charr

Writing the Charr - MMORPG.com

The Arena.Net blog post has been updated with a new piece called "Writing the Charr" penned by Writing Team member Scott McGough. Included in the behind the scenes look at the creation of the Charr are sound files to give listeners an idea of what Charr society and Charr voices sound like.

Virtues and Vices

Our world designers and writers approach the charr with a certain amount of gusto. After all, it’s just plain fun to write for the bad guys, especially when you get to explore their point of view, in which they’re the good guys. We know some people will feel a lingering resentment of the charr—probably because of that whole Searing thing—in addition to the gleeful anticipation of getting inside their fur, so our guiding principle for writing them has been to delve into some of the unexplored charr virtues (industry, discipline, fearlessness) along with their well known vices (aggression, bloodthirst, and ruthlessness). Balancing the admirable traits with the fearsome ones allows us to present a more complete picture of charr society without negating or retconning their violent history.
