    To sort of explain the notion behind characters in the next game:

    You can totally play whatever you like, provided you have the points to buy the Traits you want.

    Player Characters (Unbound) remember who they were, but each time they incarnate they are a separate "person" with distinct personality, Traits, and connections. Think of it as reincarnation, or, to nod to the specific reference I was making - Timelord regeneration. Yes, they're all "The Doctor", but each has his own distinct personality.

    There can be a lot of variety and depth to characters that are so called generically good.

    superman is generically good

    Might give Kain another shot in PSG.

    Liked being a surly dick, also the idea of being a detective type character.

    I'm pretty sure I could pull off a bad guy.

    Not really the calm, collected bastard type though. Probably.

    What I'm saying is I'd be able to make a decent early levels midboss who's kind of an asshole.

    So I have a lot of good ideas for sanity but none if them are falling out of my brain and ughhhh

    Hmmm, I wouldn't say that. No problem with trying a villainous character for a change though.

    so, is this basically a way for us to revisit favourite old characters, from wherever, whom we feel need another go at life?

    Pretty much.

    Obviously, characters outside of Gloss don't gain a "memory" of their previous incarnation (The "timeline" of worlds in DarkRED specifically refers to the games I've run personally), but you can pull concepts from wherever you like, yeah.

    I'm trying to think back over my favorite characters I have played in various games, and seeing if I can pick out a common thread.

    I guess I like to play fonts of positivity?

    edit: Which may explain why I've had difficulty writing stuff for my Sanity! character.

    Kro, did your party members, during that campaign, start referring to your guy as "special" to NPCs, eventually?

    Man, that goblin didn't go crazy. That goblin went goblin!

    right. not much for me to pull from, Gloss-wise, given I've only got two guys in currently on games. I'll think on it, and likely make a decision when I can see the character creation stuff.

    Should be interesting.

    Yeah. Like I said, feel free to re-use a character concept you haven't gotten full use of before. You just won't have a history associated with him or her.
