    This one. If it's a character for a quick one-shot or something which won't give me a lot of time for character creation, I'd rather just reuse an old character's personality and background.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    This is helpful so far and a little surprising.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    It varies but usually I create very basic characters. I prefer my characters to be defined by the events of the campaign (what is actually being played) than what was thought up beforehand.

    The only exception is if I come up with a more complicated character idea that requires elaboration, or I have a very specific character I am itching to play.

    Also all of my characters end up defaulting to 'snarky dick' regardless of what I intended.

    so my necromancer player tried to "trick" venomfang with a bunch of unseen servants, some torches/oil, and zombie heads

    his plan failed miserably and the session ended with the party high tailing it out of thundertree with a dragon on their asses

    We've started having a meal time before our sessions. I got a Chickfila nugget tray today and my friends all brought over their own foods and we had a little house party of sorts before actually playing. Next time we'll get pizza.

    We usually play through the day and break for lunch. I want to try out different times and set ups to see what works. We've had a session or two that started later and ended with dinner, some that ended with lunch and one that started after dinner (that I made) that I really enjoyed.

    Quite often with my two MTG playing friends, somone will put on dinner and have the other two come over for a commander game. That's always great, I think we'd enjoy that in the D&D group if it were more regular.

    Since our DM moved into a new place we've always done it as his place and gone out for lunch. But there aren't many eateries close by so I feel we've kind of exhausted our options. I also know that the players find it a little too time consuming to walk to the restaurant atea, wait on the order and the come back to continue playing.

    I'd like to shake things up a bit and have some games at my place, so I can cook for the group. With some prep it would be way smoother and quicker.

    Actually on Exalted. I'm actually trying to see if I can use the Third edition systems to stat up a few Servant sheets, since when I read it charms and the initative system it just felt interesting how exactly I can create Servants with it.

    Of course what I'm doing is massively homebrew since the settings are too far apart and some mechanics don't fit like Essence. But I have a few ideas. Like stat plus being turn into excellencies, instinct working into the initiative system, luck becoming static value to serve as a difficult. Fun stuff. Hopefully when I get the time I can stat at least Artoria and Cu at least for this fun project. Just wanted to say so as I saw the game brought and I agree it's very hero friendly, you are a Hero after all.

    I've played Exalted before. Fun experience.
