(no subject)

Well, since I asked a bunch of questions about it insomeone else's post, I guess I should start up things the normal way.

I'm currently running a Campaign in D&D. To make a long story short, the current area that my players are thumping around in is a tropical jungle. I wanted to do this to make things different, but I personally have no experience with jungles. Not even ina ll the books that I've read. the campaign is currently at 5th level, and thankfully, the PC's haven't left the town yet. (I've been running for all of two sessions, and there's a lot of Whodunnit still to go within the starting town)

Anyway, I would welcome as many ideas/brainstorming aids as possible, not just for low-level encounters, but things to challenge a party of any level. I have already seen Tucker's Kobolds, thanks to you guys for that one.

I've been playing a character for 3 years, give or take a few months. A couple of games were cancelled so I restarted the character after a slight rewrite. The current incarnation has been around about nine months. I play him as often as possible so he has progressed quite a lot from the start.

I started a writing class to write my first novel. Since the character hasn't been able to get out of my head, I decided to take his basic concept (changing the world quite a lot for copywrite purposes) and write his story for the novel. My husband agrees about my choice for the story since I think about this character a little too much sometimes.

The last class, the teacher was asking about the main character. I'm reluctant to give a lot of details about him to most people. I don't like rping wangst and I usually let others take the spotlight as much as possible. It's not until people roleplay with mine extensively that they start finding odd quirks about him. The character does has a angst in his background that he works through in the story including some abuse/torture. When I roleplay as him, I don't like talking about it because he blames himself for the abuse, he starts off protecting the person who abused him (Stockholm syndrome) and would prefer to move on with his life.

The teach kept asking me 'why' or 'what kind of torture' during class. I think I'm too much in his head, because I became very embarrassed about talking about the details.

And then she told me that I wasn't inside his head enough. *facepalm*

I guess that means I need to roleplay him more?
