But there are kittens in the Weyrbowl.


The threat of the summer rains have turned into the promise in the fall. It rains almost all the time nowadays, and slowly the rain turns from warm to cold to freezing, and at the last snow begins to sink lower from the heights of the mountains into the valleys.

The point of this thread is solely to help. You. With the creation of your characters. It will (eventually) have a list of things for you to think about when writing your character, some links to helpful sites, and whatever else we decide to throw out. So. On to the festivities.


LINKS: http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/ (one of many baby names sites)
http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ (a translator site)
http://www.rinkworks.com/namegen/ (a name generator)


LINKS: http://www.hollow-art.com/ (a resource for faces)

- Hair color/style
- Skin color (freckles? tan?)
- Eye color/shape

- Mouth (teeth straightness/color, color)
- Scars of note
- Voice (tone, depth, timbre)
- Usual apparel (colors, fabrics, jewelry)
- Physical nature (shy, demure, bold, commanding)


LINKS: http://www.katfeete.net/writing/marysue.html (a short test for character flaws (which are necessary))
http://www.springhole.net/quizzes/marysue.htm (a longer test, also helps getting to know the character)
http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp (a test strictly for personality, it isn't perfectly suited to characters, but it is very accurate)

THINGS TO COVER: (NOT ALL OF THEM. That would be insane.)

- What do they wish they could change about themselves?
- Morning or Night person?
- Food preferences
- Sleeping habits
- Work habits
- Political views
- Quirks
- Abilities, skills, crafts, special knowledge


LINKS: http://z8.invisionfree.com/The_Lost_Dragon...hp?showtopic=27 (the available dragons, of course, always necessary)
http://www.tektek.org/color/ (a simple two-color gradient text generator for dragon speech)
http://patorjk.com/text-color-fader/ (a more complicated text gradient generator)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colors (a list of colors to look through if you're stumped)


LINKS: http://www.spellchecker.net/spellcheck/ (it checks for grammar as well as spelling, and has a thesaurus to help make sure the right word is being used)

If you have more to add, you're allowed to reply. When it's added, we'll delete your post.
