This article has an interesting discussion of better ways of viewing the alignment system, along with a list of potential character attributes which could be very helpful in either creating a new character or refining a current one.

"100 Medieval Careers"

 

Although medieval has no context in Valucre since Valucre is not earth, this does give you a good idea of "old-timey" jobs that you could give your characters or NPCs and prompts the mind down other paths.

This is a bit random, but here's something about taming birds if anyone else needs it.

I'm not sure if this is on here already, but here is something for names (I happen to like this site.)

I don't know it'll be useful, but something about human proportions (Though it's for drawing.... it could still be useful to someone..)

And something about body language

I hope something from there helps someone...

Can we include rainymood.com to this? I find it to be a very soothing background sound for writing.

AMG. 

 

I love rainymood.com so much.

This is a cool character creation guide thing.  Motivations and core traits and such- things that are useful for making a more three dimensional character:
 
 

I didn't find this! someone else posted it in another thread a few weeks ago- it was suggested for them to move it here.  I kept looking to see if it would show up, but it never has soo...

 

I had no idea where to post this, so I'm sorry if it's the wrong place. Though this could be useful:http://rpg.ashami.com/

I did not make it, and if I'm not allowed to post it just delete my post.

 

Gday!

Not sure about the rest of you..but I have a really bad habit of using was a lot. I know I do it, I am perfectly capable of not doing it.. I get lazy, rushed and just have a lack of words to express.. It happened when I stopped writing completely.. I lost all of my more poetic creativity. 

 

This page not sure if its been posted or seen..it's cute and a small helpful reminder. I should put in damn instead of was but I don't always have time to go through and edit what I did. I also have a bad habit of not transitioning points of view very well.

I stumbled upon this article sent to my email that I never check, I only checked it because of a few events leading me to login to yahoo and reconnected with an olllldddddd roleplay pal. Who still has all my character's information. Pretty badass when I can barely remember their names lol. Anyway this article talks about rolepaying, pen and pencil games and the like and how it works for writers. Thought it was pretty darn interesting. What Roleplaying teaches writers.
