Join the January 2021 Blog Carnival: Characters, Stories, and Worlds

Happy New Year!  Image (cc) victoriaclare I'm pleased to be hosting the first RPG Blog Carnival of 2021, to join in simply write a blog post on any of these topics... Character or NPC creation Writing character backstories and motivations How you play interesting/fun characters Plotting campaigns or story arcs Tips or tools for writing adventures Your favourite adventures or setting books Worldbuilding resources or tips ...or any topic of your own choosing that loosely fits the theme.  At the moment I'm particularly interested in  how we can build player backstories and goals into the campaign story and world  and would love to know how you build your characters, your stories, your worlds. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your submission, and go check out everyone else's while they check out yours.  At the end of the month I'll wrap up all the submissions in a debrief post and hand over to the next host, so be sure to check them out and take part in February&
