Oh, okay, um, no problem.
Hmm. I have a feeling most people are going to say they don't care what role they have and that they are simply honored to be in your game; that's usually been the case. I'm going to go with that.
Don't force it though! If it doesn't fit, it's fine! Seriously! I planned on doing this at one time actually; I'll tell you my story about it.
I asked everyone what they wanted to be. I tried to fit everyone, and I managed to actually do it in my plans. Unfortunately it made everything suck ***! You see, they were all just little stupid-*** cameos. Did you ever play Kingdom Hearts or Kingdom Hearts 2? It'll probably turn out like that.
This time around I'm putting people in credits that play at the beginning of the game instead, and only putting allusions (cameos) to people when it's convenient, as opposed to forcing it. So far I have 'Warden', 'Ves', and 'Rodak' in the game, and 'Doan' planned for later. I actually really like where they're put, as opposed to them being funky and ackward. 'Warden' is the townsperson whom teaches the player just about everything about the gameplay (I know, perfect huh?! ), 'Ves' is the shop for the whole First Act of the game, and 'Rodak' is the commanding General of the protagonist's home nation (like the irony?! ) (Doan's isn't as thoroughly planned yet). I might have more as time goes on, but at least they won't be ****y little cameos like Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2!
So do whatever you see fit! I'd prefer the model/color pattern I put in that topic though!
