RPG Player Types

thebitterguy pointed this one out, and it sounded like the rare "What kind of _____ are you?" quiz that was actually worth my time.

You scored as Character Player. The Character Player enjoys creating in-depth characters with distinct and rich personalities. He identifies closely with his characters, feeling detached from the game if he doesnâ??t. He takes creative pride in exploring different characters, often making each new one radically different than others heâ??s played. The Character Player bases his decisions on his character's psychology first and foremost. He may view rules as a necessary evil at best, preferring sessions in which the dice never come out of their bags. For the Character Player, the greatest reward comes from experiencing the game from the emotional perspective of an interesting character.

What RPG Player (Not Character) Type Are You?
created with

  • I don't go out of my way to make my characters different from each other. I just make them who they are, and more importantly, I let them evolve rather than forcing them into some preconcieved concept.
  • I view rules as important -- if you're going to use them in the first place, they should be good, solid ones that reinforce the kinds of behavior you want to see in the game.

Otherwise... yeah, that's me. My particular delight is in viewing a new world from an exotic perspective, be it someone who's not part of the mainstream culture, someone who has exotic senses, or someone who's just a little odd.

On the other claw, sometimes, being the extreme insider is an exotic perspective. If the PCs are a team of superheros who all lead fairly normal lives until they got their powers, I have fun playing the second-generation super whose parents were in The Life.
