Knowing and learning a species goes a tremendous way in writing for one. Here you will find everything from; species listings to other guilds, “how to’s” to “close-up articles on a variety of species.
There’s a lot that goes into writing for another species beyond their appearance and names. Things like behaviors, attitudes, and quirks are just a few things. Sure they are subjected to change here and there to create your individual character, but they do need to stay within the realm of reason and possibility.
Each species has their own customs. Ferengi have their rules of acquisition while Vulcan suppress their emotions through countless years of training and practice. When writing for a character, it is important to incorporate some of these. Not all may apply, such as raised by foster parents or hybrid parents. But some will, which will go a long way to fleshing out the species of your character.
Very nearly all species have a unique quote or saying. One that comes close to summing up their personalities, while creating an air of individuality and mystery. They also might pique your interest as well! And that’s half the fun.
To help get an in depth insight into some of the many species available to be played, articles have been written with close-ups. These articles are filled with details and summaries that might help in deciding that next primary character or a PNPC later on. Half the fun is getting to become a new character, new species, new person.
