The Clothes Make the PC

Watch the video and tell me if you pay any attention to how the characters are dressed.

Join our Ptolus specific Discord to disucss all things Ptolus.

The way D&D Characters (PCs) dress should change how NPCs interact with them in role playing.

“The clothes make the person.” The same is true in RPG worlds, or at least it should be.

A lot of narrators forget about the details of what the characters are wearing in any given interaction with NPCs.

I try to pay special attention to this and reward or “punish” the characters based on their attire.

You cannot walk into most nice restaurants decked out in all your armor and weapons.

Shop owners might give you a better deal if you’re dressed nicer.

City Watch Guards are probably kinder to wealthily dressed PCs.

Tell Me About Your Campaign

What are you doing in your campaign, Ptolus or otherwise? Let me know in the comments on the video, or jump on our Ptolus Discord.

If you’re the coolest person alive and you want to guarantee all your rolls come up as 20’s then you can support me on Patreon.

If you’re interested in learning more about my Ptolus Campaign you can either read all the posts, as our game is complete written (Play by post) or you can follow along as I read those posts in my series called Tales Under the Spire which I try to release every Tuesday.

Until next time, stay out of the Shadow of the Spire.
