EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #7

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Dec 4, 2014.

  1. I will ask a series of questions. Your character is confined to single word responses. One word only.
    The point of this exercise is to convey as much about the character with as few words as possible.

    Need an example? This video should help explain.


    Remember you can answer questions abstractly. For example:
    What do you wear to work? Honor


    What do you wish for?
    What one wish would you make of a genie?
    Why?
    What, in your opinion, is the greatest treasure in the world?
    What, in your opinion, is the most beautiful thing in the world?
    If you could obtain one thing by steeling would you?
    What would tempt you do do so?
    If you did obtain it (via steeling or honest means) what would you do?
    What one gift would you give someone else?

    Bonus: You've been locked in prison awaiting your execution. What do you do?
