Not meaning to be funny or anything, Marcosius, but the questionnaire is more aimed at people who DO want to put a lot of time into, say, one roleplay character. I have loads and loads of RP alts - far more than ten! - and wouldn't do this for every single one of them. I have a far shorter list of questions I ask myself for most of my characters but this longer list is nice for when I do want to go into a lot more detail about my 'RP main'. If you wanted to trim the list right down, you could pare it down to four questions, maybe less. Here's the four I've picked. 1. Family. Who were they, what happened to them, what does your character think of them? Doesn't need to be a big, sprawling family tree, it can be as short as 'my parents are simple farmers and we get on well. I go to visit them whenever I have time.' 2. Hobbies. Pick one, if you want. 'My warrior likes going out drinking with his mates when he's off-duty.' 3. Character class or job. Why is your character a mage/baker/weasel juggler. 'My parents were bakers and I took over running the family business when my father grew old.' 4. Motivations and goals. These don't need to be 'I want to save the world!' type. 'I keep setting my beard on fire when I cast fire spells, I'd like to get better at pyromancy so that doesn't happen.' 'I'd like to earn enough money to start a family and retire in comfort.' You can cut it down to a few short one-line responses that provide the bare bones for a roleplaying character. This is what I do for my minor RP characters. If you wanted to just take it down to one or two, you could go with 'motivations and goals' to decide what mainly drives your character and pick another one as you wish to flesh them out a little more.
