What inspired you to create this character? Memnach got his start in VTM (Vampire the Masquerade), everyone in our group was making really combat heavy characters and I was just like "nah not going to do that" so I came up with a concept for a socialite performer ... and voila! Mem was born. ... There is a little influence from Ann Rice's Lestat character along with Jim Butcher's Thomas character...
What do you like and dislike about this character? Being a fire dancer myself I love the way Mem puts on a show, and just how smooth and charming he is. At the same time I dislike that he can be a total slut at times.
Why do you like roleplaying this character? He's actualy liberating to play, he lets me express a side of myself that that normaly doesn't get out.
What game, or games, do you roleplay this character in? Mem started out as a VTM character and while always a vampire I have applied minor tweaks to him to fit the setting of what I play. He has been in Pathfinder and Shadowrun along with RIFT and TSW.
What has been your best and worst rp experience with this character? I think my Best RP with Mem ever was back in VTM when the party had really really pissed of the city's Prince, and in walks Mem cocky as can be and just cons, lies and charms his "friends" out of being staked out for the sun.
As for the worst well I think I ran into that on RIFT when dealing with monster hunters, they never stopped to ask me anything OOC that their toon might know, then they got mad and thought I was godmoding, when the truth of the matter is [Memnach is based on VTM stats]. It turned what could've been a great RP story into frustration for everyone.

The role-playing game that once defined geek suddenly is oh-so-chic, as everyone from Dwayne Johnson to Drew Barrymore roll multisided dice while pretending to be dwarves and wizards. Says 'Silicon Valley's' Martin Starr: "There's a huge resurgence of nerd culture, and I'm excited about it."
RP ADVICE SPOTLIGHT
A common mmorpg storytelling problem often occurs when a player plays their character in the set game story. They're usually the hero, the leader, the owner of that one-of-a kind epic weapon, the slayer of that one terrible enemy! Well, SO IS EVERYONE ELSE'S CHARACTER!! So, what do we do? How do you, as an rp'er faced with this situation, handle it?
