How To 'Flesh Out' an OC
char•ac•ter
The aggregate of features and traits that form the
individual nature of some person or thing.

In this tutorial I will guide you through a way to 'flesh out' an Original Character (Also known as an OC). Before we begin, let's go through the basics.
A character is quite simply one who possesses qualities that define them from someone else. Every character is original and unique. A character can not only be human, but an animal, an alien, or anything that the imagination can come up with.
However, characters are often difficult to create, because to put it bluntly, you are in a sense creating a new being. This being needs the same kinds of traits and characteristics you possess, but can't be your own. They have to be original. In this case, many young writers and artists forget how hard it is to make a character and forget the complex details that enhance a character.
Fleshing out is a term used commonly in developing characters. It means to add additional det

A little vent here, and I know that some people will bite my head off for it.

It seems that every time I post some literature, I have people telling me that my grammar needs work.  To some people, glaringly so.  It's something I understand I need help on, but there's something I need to know on how to improve:  Specifics.  I want to know just how I'm making these mistakes and know what to look for.  That's something I can't get from writing tutorials, or even looking over my files for the twentieth time because I can't see some of these errors even if I'm staring right at it.

What I need, is someone to go over one of my files and proofread them.  Mark up all of my text so that all of my grammatical errors are pointed out, so I can find out where I'm screwing up.

Problem is, nobody wants to do it for me.  I can understand if it's something you need to pay for, even though I'm not made of it, but when some people claim that anything I spit out is so fundamentally flawed that I need tutorials in writing.

I don't need tutorials in writing, I need help with editing.  I need someone who can go through these files and help me with the grammar without shaking his or her head over what they're looking at.

I know that some people in DeviantART can be of some help here, especially with beta and proofreading.  Some who is learning how to proofread and want to keep in practice, I will gladly let you practice and hone your skills with my text files; that way, we can help each other.

Because that is what I need to improve my grammar.  I know something's broke, I need to know what that is, and how to fix it.

Hubworld is the code name I have for the D&D 4E compatiable world I'll be writing my NaNoWriMo 2011 project in. In this group, I'll be posting up ideas and suggestions, and eventually character design and plot outlines, for like minded people to bat around and send me feedback on how to improve on them. If you're interested in a unique D&D world that is a lighter take on the standard fair, and can critique ideas and stray thoughts in a civil manner, feel free to join in.

Not here, but I will be making a lot more stuff on the campaign world that came about from this little project, which I'm calling Æthercoil.  You'll see more about it at my web site, foxfirestudios.net

Well, Shendilavri is going to be a 5ED homebrew campaign world; and most of the stuff you put up here (thank you very much by the way) will probably be translated to this next edition.

Terminal March from the Bastion soundtrack. Awesome for Asian-setting RPGs.

Trust me, I'm Chinese. :P

I'll look for it. :)

I might take a listen to your feedback on the second draft; I want to at least have cities like Hedong be somewhat close to a complement to Chinese ascetics.

Nice little music for an eastern-baklunish-turmish or such mystic, monk...
