Character Creation Cast

Each month, Character Creation Cast creates characters for a different game with guests from the RPG world, then examines the process, in depth. They always take the time to reflect on the game, its design, and what guests have to say about it. Each series is followed by Character Evolution Cast, where Amelia and Ryan explore ideas and techniques to help players get the most out of the characters they’ve made.  

Amelia Antrim
After stepping away from gaming during college, Amelia picked it up the hobby again after listening to a few actual play podcasts. Since then, she has made it her mission to try out a variety of systems and play styles, and to explore the interactions between mechanics, setting, characters, and narrative. She is passionate about creating memorable characters and using RPGs to tell great stories. When she isn’t playing or talking about RPGs, Amelia is probably busy being a nerd about something else, like political science or Star Wars.

Ryan Boelter started playing RPGs in middle school, way back in 1993. He quickly found that it lit his imagination on fire and he was hooked. He took a break after college when friends moved away, but after discovering the joy of one shots, podcasts, and online play, he has jumped in with both feet.
