Advanced Creation

The Definition gives you the most flexibility to develop your Character, but that also means it comes with some inherent complexity. It is largely a blank canvas, and there is a lot of creativity that can be employed to get certain behaviors to emerge.

Note that sometimes, for some Characters, less can be more. That is, you may find that giving the system just a creative greeting, which then causes it to invent the rest of the context itself, may actually produce better results than a carefully crafted Definition. It just depends on the character and scene.

You should think in terms of tinkering and experimenting rather than specification and programming. We are still learning what is possible along with you!

The section will introduce some ways to use the Definition, but it isn't meant to be exhaustive, but rather to get you thinking creatively about what you can try yourself.
