Topic: Thespian


  
  Thespian in Your Game
Thespians usually, but not always, have a clear and detailed history of their characters, including their upbringing, notable moments in their past, and a list of mentors, allies, patrons, and enemies.
Thespian often tries hard to tie in elements from their character’s past into the current situation, giving them (and the GM) the motivation for his actions and reactions.
Thespians may not understand people who enjoy combat (often nicknamed the “tactician,” which will be detailed in a later article) and may look down on them as being lesser roleplayers.

 Rules vs. Roles
The first, the thespian, is more focused on the “soft” side of gaming, with heavy interaction, acting, and character building and the second, the tactician, leans towards the “hard” side of gaming, with a love for rules, tactical play, combat, and maximizing a character’s abilities and scores.
The thespian is great for making a game believable, vibrant, and interesting as she (and hopefully others in the group) plays her character’s personality to the hilt.
If you have a thespian character that studiously avoids reading the rules, keeping up on combat, or takes the party off on pointless side-treks because it “seems fun,” reward them when they keep up on the rules, are helpful and attentive during combat, or strives to keep the plot from going awry.

Being a detail-minded kind of guy, your Master Thespian smiled as the dentist corrected his technician by telling her that indeed thirteen was cracked as I had claimed, not fourteen, as she had insisted.
Of course, it seems as these thespians step off the acting stage onto the soapbox is also around the time their acting skills have degenerated to the point that they are left with only the ability to lie with a straight face.

As Pastor Paul continued, a few general questions are asked from the audience (the troupe) and a few parishioner's not knowing they were witnessing a performance, also raised their hands to speak.
