Make your fac­tions com­ple­men­tary

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight | An RPG Full Of Life -

Fac­tions are om­nipresent in games, so make sure your fac­tions have enough con­trast­ing el­e­ments, such as tech­nol­ogy lev­els, cus­toms and racial traits to make them unique. For ex­am­ple, if you have an in­dus­trial, tech­no­cratic em­pire, it can be in­ter­est­ing to op­pose it to a prim­i­tive, spir­i­tual tribe. This con­trast can cre­ate in­ter­est­ing sit­u­a­tions when your im­por­tant char­ac­ters, who come from th­ese vastly dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments, start in­ter­act­ing.

Good char­ac­ter de­sign is about get­ting your au­di­ence to re­spond emo­tion­ally to your char­ac­ters
