Episode 690: Walking Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

There’s something comforting in the ritual of creating a new character. Starting with a blank character sheet and knowing that by your
toil will be generated an entire personality. Moulding a complete living entity with nought but your bare hands, some dice, and a rule book.
Someone with a purpose and a goal in life*.

It’s a simple process of taking a step-by-step sequence, applying it to a blank slate, and adding a dash of your imagination, but it frequently
comes up with a character that you end up caring about. There’s magic in that.

* Even if it is merely to gain treasure and experience.
