Character Creation; a Potential and Limitations (English)
Abstract [en]

This project report describes a supplement for character creation in a tabletop role-playing game “Dragons and Demons." The purpose of this project is to improve the character creation for the players’ trough the narrative elements such as character’s background story. The applied qualitative methods such as a test panel and a questionnaire were conducted for the evaluation of theories used during character creation and to get feedback on the supplement’s creative value for the players. The aim of the questionnaire was to see how the method for the character creation differs from the regular way of making a character for a tabletop role-playing game and if this idea improves user experience during the tabletop role-playing game.

The results of the evaluation are based on answers from novice and experienced players, and conclude that the additional background story creates an insight into the character's past, which makes it easier for novice players to get quick started with character creation. The experienced players expressed that the supplement for character creation was more entertaining than the traditional way of making a character for a tabletop role-playing game.
