I have been trying and failing to create new characters for the True World Online VN,WN, MUD project that I am working on but I am stuck with word-building without characters and so without any real conflict. It’s like I am trying to imagine the Otaku utopia where technology has everyone happy but then there is nothing left to work towards so I can’t reverse engineer some characters from the setting that easily. This approach will hopefully also help me write a protagonist who is not basically me in every way. Basically I need a list of one-note characters to get things going. I still have no clue about what the conflict should be but one thing at a time.
