Episode 109 - Visual Character Descriptions, Part 1 (with Krissi Woodward)

  • almost 2 years ago

Krissi Woodward—Grant's wife and costume designer—joins us once again to discuss visual character descriptions in our game, and especially clothing! We have a couple of announcements related to our Weekend Reading series and our Patreon question rewards. Then we tackle a question from Patreon backer gfactor, who asks about electronic apps or devices which might enhance the tabletop play experience. With that handled, we begin breaking down the importance of describing character appearances in our games. Grant leads off with a potentially controversial statement about character portraits and minis, which leads us into why players are often hesitant to delve into this at all. Then we go deep into the rabbit hole with Krissi, talking about clothing (and other elements of our appearance) in a conversation that went so long, we had to split it into two parts! Mentioned in this half of the episode: Inkarnate and Worldpainter. Scripture: Genesis 3:6-7, Exodus 28:15-21, Isaiah 53:2, James 2:1-4
