Burning Void has a free 5.5 MB PDF called 365 Character Questions for Writers and Roleplayers (direct link to PDF) which is designed to help you create believable characters. Also included are a variety of exercises for getting your character creation juices flowing — it’s a very clever resource. (Via Tolen Mar.)
About The Author
"Martin Ralya (TT)" is two people: Martin Ralya, the administrator of and a contributor to Gnome Stew, and a time traveler from the years 2005-2007, when he published the Treasure Tables GMing blog (TT). Treasure Tables got started in the early days of RPG blogging, and when Martin burned out trying to run it solo he shut it down, recruited a team of authors, and started Gnome Stew in its place. We moved all TT posts and comments to Gnome Stew in 2012.
